Smoking club, 18th century artwork

Smoking club, 18th century artwork. The practice of smoking tobacco was popularised in England and Ireland in the 1580s and 1590s by the English soldier and explorer Sir Walter Raleigh (c.1552-1618). This artwork, by the English caricaturist James Gillray (1757-1815), shows members of the House of Commons puffing smoke at each other. Those present include the Speaker (left) Charles James Fox (1749-1806), the Prime Minister (second from left) William Pitt the Younger (1759-1806) and the Home Secretary (second from right) Henry Dundas, 1st Viscount Melville (1742-1811). This copy of this artwork was published in the work Tobacco, its History and Associations (1859) by the English engraver Frederick William Fairholt (1814-1866)

Thomas Wright, British astronomer

Thomas Wright (1711-86), British astronomer. Wright was born at Byers Green in northern England. In 1730 he set up a school at which he taught mathematics and navigation. He taught himself the essentials of architecture and garden design and was employed by wealthy patrons. This supported his work in astronomy. He is best known for his suggestion that the Milky Way is actually a disc-shaped layer of stars in which we live. He also suggested that some of the faint nebulae that could be observed were other galaxies at incredible distances. This engraved portrait first appeared in the Gentleman's Magazine in 1793
