Whale by Johann Anderson, I.V.D. - 1746

Print Description

Mr. Johann Anderson, I.V.D. and Weyland First Mayor of Freyen Imperial City of Hamburg, News from Iceland, Greenland and the Davis Strait, for the true benefit of science and action.

Hamburg: Published by Georg Christian Grund, Buchdr., 1746

Johann Anderson (1674-1743) was the son of a whaling ship owner from Hamburg, Germany. He became a lawyer, served in the Hamburg Senate, and was mayor of the city for many years. Anderson systematically gathered the available literature on Iceland, Greenland, and the adjacent seas, as well as gleaned information from sailors and merchants. This book, which he prepared mainly in the 1730s, was published in 1746, after his death. It includes descriptions of the land and peoples of Iceland and Greenland, and covers topics ranging from the herring fishery to the volumes of oil produced by different species of whales. Although he was wrong on some points, Anderson made scientific contributions in a number of areas. He developed a system for classifying species of whales and made estimates of commercial marine stocks that prefigured later work in fisheries biology. Appended to the work was a grammar and vocabulary of the Inuit language spoken on Greenland, and a selection of extracts from religious texts presented in German, Danish, and Inuit. Anderson’s book was valued throughout Europe, and was translated into and published in Danish (1748), Dutch (1750), and French (1750).

Print Description

The Cyder Feast by Edward Calvert - c.1850.

In September 1818 Palmer wrote to George Richmond that 'Mr Calvert I found... finishing with surprising rapidity... a beautiful and luxuriant design of the cider pressing: a wood-engraving'. The subject may contain memories of apple harvests that Calvert had perhaps witnessed during his childhood in the cider country of Western England. It's theme, as for most of Calvert's prints, is the fertility and abundance of nature. Earlier states of the print were inscribed with the words 'By the Gift of God in Christ'. However Calvert later removed them, thus helping reinforce the essentially pagan character of the subject. - Tate

The Bride by Edward Calvert c.1850

Print Description

The Bride by Edward Calvert c.1850.

Calvert's landscapes were partly inspired by the countryside around Shoreham. But they also drew on the pastoral vision depicted by Blake in his Virgil woodcuts and on Blake's notion of Beulah. This came from the Biblical Beulah, the name given to Palestine when God restored it to favour, and from John Bunyan's Beulah or Earthly Paradise of The Pilgrim's Progress. Beulah also meant 'married'. The idea of the Soul as the Bride seeking God on the difficult path to salvation lies at the heart of The Bride. - Tate

Print Description

Linze (Lens culinaris) by Anselmus Boëtius de Boodt - 1596 - 1610.

Anselmus de Boodt or Anselmus Boëtius de Boodt (Bruges, 1550 - Bruges, 21 June 1632) was a Flemish humanist, mineralogist, physician and naturalist. Along with the German known as Georgius Agricola, de Boodt was responsible for establishing modern mineralogy. De Boodt was an avid mineral collector who travelled widely to various mining regions in Germany, Bohemia and Silesia to collect samples. His definitive work on the subject was the Gemmarum et Lapidum Historia (1609).

De Boodt was also a gifted draughtsman who made many natural history illustrations and developed a natural history taxonomy.
