Caption

Balloonist James Sadler over the Irish Channel, 1812. English aeronaut James Sadler (1751-1828) was a balloonist and chemist who made the first ascent by an English aeronaut in Oxford in a 170-foot self-constructed hot-air balloon. In the 1790s Sadler set up a mineral water factory and from the 1810s resumed his ballooning to sell soda water. Between 1810 and 1815 he made numerous ascents. This illustration is a hand-coloured lithograph.
