The Great Seal of Queen Ann
J. Mynde sc. [c.1730]
Engraving, platemark 325 x 200mm (12¾ x 8").
The seal of Queen Anne (1665-1714), who ascended the thrones of England, Scotland and Ireland in 1702. She favoured moderate Tory politicians, who shared her Anglican religious views over their opponents, the Whigs. The Whigs however grew more powerful during the course of the War of the Spanish Succession, until in 1710 Anne dismissed many of them from office. Despite many pregnancies, Anne died without surviving children and was the last monarch of the House of Stuart.

Mezzotint, very fine; sheet 245 x 185mm (9¾ x 7¼"). Trimmed; tipped into album sheet.
Anne, queen of Great Britain and Ireland (1665-1714). Anne's twelve year reign proved a watershed between the violence of the seventeenth century and the stability and prosperity of the eighteenth century, which owed much to her personally. In 1707 she signed the Act of Union, uniting England and Scotland to create the Kingdom of Great Britain; Anne's fervent support for the Union contributed significantly to its acceptance by both kingdoms. Meanwhile, her staunch support of the duke of Marlborough in the face of opposition made it possible for him to use his skills to re-establish the balance of power in Europe. During Anne's reign neither political party triumphed; the final victory of the Whigs came only after her death, with the reign of George I (whose Hanoverian succession Anne supported).

att Amsterdam by Nicolaus Visscher with Privilidge of ye High and Mighty States Generall.
Engraving, fine; sheet 365 x 260mm (14¼ x 10¼"). Trimmed; tipped into album sheet, slight nicks left edge.
Queen Anne (1665-1714), second daughter of James II, while a princess. In 1683 she married Prince George of Denmark, an alliance encouraged by Louis XIV, who wished to see the naval powers of England and Denmark united against the Dutch. As queen, Anne was intimate and dependent on Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, whose husband, the Duke, controlled the war against France. However, in 1711, she dismissed the Marlboroughs, largely because of her sympathy with Tory opposition to the Duke's conduct of the war. The most important constitutional landmark of her reign was the Act of Union with Scotland in 1707.

Etching, sheet 450 x 580mm (17¾ x 22¾"). Trimmed, losing text and vignettes below image; vertical folds. Few very minor repairs. A rich impression.
Queen Anne (1665-1714) seated on throne at right, presiding over the Lords. Above two allegorical figures representing Plenty (with a cornucopia) and War (with a shield) hold a scroll showing Anne with Prince George of Denmark besides her presiding over the Commons. Second state (published c.1702) of a print first published in 1689, showing William III on the throne shortly after his coronation. It was subsequently reworked to fit the arrival of successive monarchs up to and including George II in 1727. Etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. De Hooghe's output as an artist was broad, however, and he had other talents and responsibilities: in 1689 he was placed in charge of obtaining building materials for the royal hunting lodge of Het Loo; the same year he became a Doctor of Law at Harderwijk University; he designed ceiling paintings for municipal buildings and church windows; and he wrote several political and historical treatises.

Cap.t William Bedloe
Cap.t William Bedloe Discoverer of the Popish Plott.
[Anon., c.1681]
Engraving, sheet 215 x 145mm (8½ x 5¾"). Trimmed. Glued to album sheet at edges.
William Bedloe (1650-80), informer and adventurer. In the 1670s Bedloe fell into a life of crime in London, spending time in jail for fraud and at one point fleeing for the continent with his brother. There they stole horses and committed fraud, going by different disguises and identities. In Valladolid they met Titus Oates (and stole from him too), but back in England Bedloe came into the public eye following the death of Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey. Godfrey died in mysterious circumstances soon after receiving testimony from Oates about a supposed 'Popish Plot' to assassinate Charles II, and Bedloe claimed he knew how Godfrey had died. Bedloe appeared at a number of trials relating to the plot, giving evidence that led to the deaths of a number of innocent people. An opportunist, Bedloe exploited the hysteria and gullibility surrounding the fabricated plot, earning well from his 'evidence', while his early death meant he was spared the retribution which Oates and others received once the smoke cleared.

Etching, sheet 420 x 540mm (16 x 21¼"). Trimmed, crease.
The signing of the Treaty of Breda, with the delegates in the conference chamber (centre), arrival and departure of the English delegation (top and bottom), and topographical scenes of Breda (left and right). The treaty, signed in the Dutch city of Breda, brought to an end the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665-7) in favour of the Dutch. With the seas around the south coast of England essentially controlled by the Dutch admiral de Ruyter following the raid on the Medway in 1667, the English were eager to reach a swift agreement. By this treaty the lands of New Netherlands were ceded to the English producing the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania & Delaware. Etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. De Hooghe's output as an artist was broad, however, and he had other talents and responsibilities: in 1689 he was placed in charge of obtaining building materials for the royal hunting lodge of Het Loo; the same year he became a Doctor of Law at Harderwijk University; he designed ceiling paintings for municipal buildings and church windows; and he wrote several political and historical treatises.
