Balloon ascent from the Tuileries Gardens, Paris

Balloon ascent of Charles and Robert from the Tuileries Gardens, Paris, the first voyage made in a hydrogen balloon. After sending off a trial hydrogen balloon, Charles designed, and the brothers Robert built, a full-size man-carrier, the fabric of which was made imporous by the Roberts method of rubberising the cloth. This was the first modern type balloon.

Recruits, 1780

Recruits, 1780.Engraving by Watson and Dickinson after W H Bunbury, 1780.This caricature was published during the American War of Independence (1775-1783). The war in America made enormous demands on British Army manpower. Here a recruiting officer and a non-commissioned officer line up new recruits outside an inn. Although the Army required able-bodied men, in times of shortage it would make do with whoever it could get. Many recruits were less than ideal material, as this caricature illustrates.Even so, the Government could not find enough recruits at home, and was forced to supply the shortfall by hiring Hessian (German) mercenaries. Date: 1780
