Harding's 'Sketches at Home and Abroad' was a milestone in the development of colour printing. For the first time more than one lithographic stone was used, allowing different tones to be printed. Harding drew his own sketches onto the stones, which were then printed by Charles Hullmandel, the leading lithographic printer. The print run was limited to 1000 copies.

BRUÉ, Adrien Hubert. [Wall map of Europe in 1844 once owned by Louis-Philippe, last king of France.]

A large format map of Europe, highlighting the boundary changes according to peace treaties. Recent years had seen Russia's gains from Persia in the Caucasus (1828), an independent Greece with Russia's increased territory in the Balkans (1829-32) and Belgium's borders (Treaty of the Eighty Articles, 1831). The ink stamp seems to be a variant of that of Louis-Philippe (1773-1850), the last king of France, who was forced to abdicate in the French Revolution of 1848. He spent the last years of his life in England.
