COCKBURN, James Pattison (1779-1847): The Cone of Montmorency of 1827,
Quebec: 1827. Watercolour over pencil heightened with scratching out, on early card mount. Inscribed in ink on mount with title and signed "James Cockburn / Lt. Col. Rl. Arty." 19th century water gilt frame. 14 3/4 x 21 3/4 inches. A fine watercolour of a the frozen falls of the St. Lawrence River by British army officer James Cockburn, a talented artist of Canadian scenery in this early period. British army officer Major-General James Pattison Cockburn (1779-1847) served in Canada from 1822 to 1823, and again from 1826 to 1832. Most of his fine watercolours were made during his second posting, having made several inspection tours in his capacity as commanding officer of the Royal Artillery in Canada, including visits to the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. "Cockburn was a prolific amateur water-colourist, often working with the intent to publish [including several separately issued prints by Ackermann and Co., as well as illustrations in several works] ... His artistic endeavours did not go unnoticed by those of his social circle. Lord and Lady Dalhousie were respected patrons of the arts in the colony during his term as Governor-in- Chief of Canada, 1819-28; they acquired at least two albums of Cockburn views. Lady Aylmer, wife of Lord Dalhousie's successor in office, describes Colonel Cockburn as '...one of the most accurate and elegant artists I have ever met" (Cooke). Cockburn would exhibit at the National Academy of Design in 1836. A contemporary of Cockburn described the winter scene on the St. Lawrence depicted here as follows: 'When the river St. Lawrence is frozen below the falls, the level ice becomes a support, on which the freezing spray descends as sleet; it there remains, and gradually enlarges its base and its height, assuming an irregularly conical form, its dimensions thus continually enlarging become, towards the close of the winter, stupendous." The cone became a winter destination for visitors from the city of Quebec, and as the present image shows part of the attraction was that it was possible to climb and slide down the slopes of the cone. See Allodi 401-403 for similar images of this natural wonder. Four Cockburn albums containing over 350 watercolours were dispersed following the April 27, 1926 Murray Sale at Sotheby and Co., and is the source of most extant examples of his work. His watercolours appear in the permanent collections of the Public Archives Canada, the National Gallery Canada, Royal Ontario Museum, Archives Nationales du Quebec, the McCord Museum, British Museum and National Army Museum, among others.

Expertly bound to style in half 18th-century russia-backed contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. First edition with the rare folding map. This work, which was much re-printed, was, for many years, assumed to be fictional due to the severe nature of the descriptions of the 'extraordinary distresses and adventures'. The map, titled 'A Map of that part of ye kingdom of Mexico travers'd by Jno. Cockburn & his Companions' depicts Central America and the Gulf of Honduras. 'Cockburn and several other pirates were set ashore ... at Puerto Caballos in 1730. After escaping from jail in San Pedro Sula, they crossed the Isthmus to San Salvador and thence traveled to Panama overland ... The account is valuable, as few foreign observers visited Central America in the early eighteenth century' (Griffin.) The Withington, with its own titlepage, makes up the final eighty-five pages of this work. Field 336; Griffin 2530; Sabin 14095

Cockburn, Bruce: Stealing Fire (LP 33 U/min.) Pläne 88371, 1984.
Bruce Cockburn (ausgesprochen: "Co-burn", * 27. Mai 1945 in Ottawa, Kanada) ist ein kanadischer Folkgitarrist und Sänger. Nach seinem High-School Abschluss studierte er am Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA, bevor es ihn nach Beendigung des Studiums nach Toronto/Kanada zog, von wo aus er seine musikalische Karriere startete. Während seine Musik in den siebziger Jahren überwiegend den Genres Folk und Jazzrock zuzuordnen ist und die Texte vielfach von seinem christlichen Glauben geprägt waren, kamen seit 1980 zunehmend weitere musikalische Einflüsse (Reggae, Weltmusik) und politische Themen hinzu. Cockburn bereiste viele Länder in Lateinamerika, Asien und Afrika und ließ seine Impressionen von diesen Reisen in die Songs einfließen. Politische Themen wie Unterdrückung, Gewalt, Umweltverschmutzung oder Landminen finden Erwähnung.
