[c.1825.]
Lithograph. Printed area 295 x 250mm, 11½ x 9¾". Publisher's blind stamp under title. Cut.
Head and shoulders portrait of Ali Pasha (1740-1822), the Ottoman Albanian ruler, surnamed Aslan, 'the Lion', or the 'Lion of Yannina', who fought for independence from the Ottoman Empire. His cruelty has become legendary. Byron visited Ali's court in Ioánnina in 1809 and wrote to his mother: 'His Highness is a remorseless tyrant, guilty of the most horrible cruelties, very brave, so good a general that they call him the Mahometan Buonaparte ... but as barbarous as he is successful, roasting rebels, etc, etc.'. Jean-Baptiste Mauzaisse (1784-1844) appears to have painted this portrait after Ali's death.

Chromolithograph. 398 x 266mm. 15¾ x 10½".
Eugène Henri Brisson (1835-1912) was a French statesman, Prime Minister of France for a period in 1885 until 1886 and again in 1898. He was a member of the extreme Left, he did however propose amnesty for the condemned but it was voted down. He was also a prominent figure in exposing the Panama scandals. In June of 1898 he formed a cabinet when the country was violently excited over the Dreyfus affair. The Dreyfus affair was a political scandal that divided France in the 1890s and the early 1900s. It involved the conviction for treason of Captain Alfred Dreyfus (1859-1935), a French artillery officer of Alsatian Jewish descent, who was sentenced to life for allegedly having communicated French military secrets to the German Embassy in Paris.

The male portrait lacking margins (and publisher's imprint), and with closed chip to title area lower right. The female with light marginal staining and small closed tears to right margin; unidentified collector's stamp verso.
Twin portraits of Charles-Geneviève-Louis-Auguste-André-Timothée d'Éon de Beaumont (1728 - 1810), usually known as the Chevalier d'Eon, diplomatist and transvestite. In the first he is in military uniform as a (male) officer of dragoons wearing a plumed helmet; in the second he is a woman, wearing a lace-trimmed cape over his gown, a ribbon around his neck and a lace cap, with pearl earrings and military order attached to a rosette on his breast. Both portraits in decorative surrounds with identically-lettered plaques below. It is scarce to find both portraits offered together, as here. The BNF appears to have only the female portrait. The Chevalier d'Eon was a French diplomat, soldier and Freemason who lived the first half of his life as a man and the second half as a woman. Living in England in 1785, he lost his pension after the French Revolution and had to sell his library. In 1792 he sent a letter to the French National Assembly, offering to lead a division of women soldiers against Austria, but the offer was rebuffed. He participated in fencing tournaments until he was seriously wounded, in 1796. After a trial in 1777 about his actual sex he wore female attire until his death. Surgical examination proved him biologically male. By Jean Baptiste Bradel (c.1763 - 1783; fl.).

Stipple, platemark 220 x 135mm (8½ x 5¼"), small margins. Foxing.
Baron Dominique-Vivant Denon (1747-1825), French painter, archaeologist and traveller. He had a brilliant career as an artist and diplomat under the ancien regime, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Diderot, Voltaire, and Robespiere. He followed Napoleon on his campaign in Egypt, making over 150 sketches (now in the British Museum) which, reproduced in his book 'Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute Egypte' (1802), the first serious description of the antiquities discovered in Egypt, were influential in establishing the Egyptian Revival style in France. In 1802 he was appointed director-general of the Imperial Museums, playing a key role in bringing foreign masterpieces into the Louvre. He played a crucial role as artistic adviser to Napoleon, selecting artworks to requisition and handing out commissions to artists. After Napoleon's defeat in 1815 he retired, and spent his last ten years engraving and working on a general history of the arts.
