Gulliver at the royal palace of the Lilliputians, lantern slide, late 19th century

Gulliver at the royal palace of the Lilliputians, lantern slide, late 19th century. '...I got into the inmost court; and, lying down upon my side, I applied my face to the windows of the middle stories, which were left open on purpose, and discovered the most splendid apartments that can be imagined. There I saw the empress and the young princes, in their several lodgings, with their chief attendants about them. Her imperial majesty was pleased to smile very graciously upon me, and gave me out of the window her hand to kiss'. A scene from "Gulliver's Travels" by Jonathan Swift, first published in 1726. One of a series of 12 'Superior Lithographic Coloured Lantern Slides...with Lecture complete', made in England c1870-1900.

'The Ark is Launched on Merseyside, 13th April, 1937', (1942). 'Her huge bows tower to her iron flight deck 800 feet long and 94 across. She took three years and three months to build and cost £2,330,000.' A British Royal Navy aircraft carrier of the Second World War, 'HMS Ark Royal' was designed to carry a large number of aircraft, and had two hangar deck levels. She was launched in Liverpool by Lady Maud Hoare, wife of Sir Samuel Hoare, then First Lord of the Admiralty. 'Ark Royal' was involved in the first aerial and U-boat kills of the war, in operations off Norway, in the search for the German battleship 'Bismarck', and took part in the Malta Convoys. A German submarine torpedoed her on 13 November 1941 and she sank the following day. Only one of her 1,488 crew members was killed. From "Ark Royal". [His Majesty's Stationery Office, London, 1942]

'Side of Ferrar Glacier. Figure of Man in Lower Left Corner', c1908, (1909). Artist: Unknown

'Side of Ferrar Glacier. Figure of Man in Lower Left Corner', c1908, (1909). Anglo-Irish explorer Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) made three expeditions to the Antarctic. During the second expedition, 1907-1909, he and three companions established a new record, Farthest South latitude at 88°S, only 97 geographical miles (112 statute miles, or 180 km) from the South Pole, the largest advance to the pole in exploration history. Members of his team also climbed Mount Erebus, the most active volcano in the Antarctic. Shackleton was knighted by King Edward VII for these achievements. He died during his third and last 'oceanographic and sub-antarctic' expedition, aged 47. Illustration from The Heart of the Antarctic, Vol. I, by E. H. Shackleton, C.V.O. [William Heinemann, London, 1909]
