¤ Rarissime vue des Bermudes (d'une suite de 13) réalisée par le Lieutenant E.G. Hallewell, alors en garnison aux Bermudes, et dont il ne subsiste que peu d'exemplaires.
- No title. Panoramic view on the island of Bermuda, with locals on the forground taken after Hallewell.
Edmund Gilling Hallewell (1822 – 1869), who was well known as ‘Lieut: & Adjt XX Regt.,’ was commissioned in 1839, in the 20th or East Devons. This battalion was part of the Bermuda garrison between 1846-47.
Hallewell was an unsuccessful candidate for the "New Society of Painters in Watercolours" in 1850, by which time he was a captain in the 20th Regiment.
He gained his majority in 1854, transferred to the 28th or North Gloucestershire and served in the Crimea as Deputy Acting Quartermaster General of the Light Division at Alma, Inkerman and Sebastopol.
Promoted to colonel in 1860 and retired from active service in 1864. In 1869, the year of his early death, he was Commandant of Sandhurst. He lived at Stroud in England, and between 1850 and 1853 exhibited landscapes in the Royal Academy, British Institution and at the Society of British Artists.
This is one from a set of 13 plates of Bermuda views, and were executed as a test of the surveying skills of young military officers. They give a fascinating impression of the island at a key point in its history. Little did Hallewell know at the time that his sketches would end up a century later as prized lithographs (and that 144 years later, a rare set of 13 plates of his lithographs, one of only 50 sets in existence, would be sold at Sotheby's in London for 30,800 pounds (then over US$60,000).

¤ Carte des Antilles britanniques comprenant la Jamaïque, les Bermudes, les Barbades, Antigua, St Christophe et Tobago.
- This fine English map of the islands Jamaica, Bermuda, Barbados, Antigua, St.Christopher, Tobago and a inset map of the Caribbean in top. John Senex's "A New General Atlas of the World" was, strangely. the only early 18th century English attempt at emulating the success of the French and Dutch mapmakers' folio atlases. Other London mapmakers concentrated on very large, or very small format atlases, separate issues or chart books; whereas Senex produced his maps in folio format.
