Hogarth Delin.t R.d Livesay Fecit
Publish'd Nov.r 27 1781 by R.d Livesay at Mrs Hogarths Leicester Fields.
Aquatint and etching, platemark 250 x 345mm (9¾ x 13½"). Small margins. Bit time stained.
In 1732 William Hogarth, with a group of friends including the artist Samuel Scott and lawyer and writer Ebenezer Forrest, undertook a five-day tour of the Thames and Medway estuaries. Forrest wrote an account of the trip and Hogarth and others made drawings to illustrate it (these are now in the British Museum). In 1781, after Hogarth's death, Richard Livesay engraved the plates and published them, together with Forrest's account, as 'Account of what seemed most remarkable in the five days' peregrination of Tothall, Scott, Hogarth, Thornhill, and F.' (1782). The figures in this scene are all identified by a key- Hogarth, as in his well-known picture 'The Calais Gate', is crouched on the left, 'drawing this drawing'.

Mr. Iohn Broughton. Prize Fighter. From the Original Picture (of the same size) by William Hogarth. In the Collection of Henry Ralph Willett, Esq.re of Merby House in the County of Dorset.
W. Hogarth. F[. Ro]ss.
Published for the Proprietor march 25th 1842 by W. & G. Smith, 24, Lisle Street, Leicester Square.
Coloured lithograph, publication line in pencil. Sheet 500 x 320mm (19¾ x 12½"). Laid on card, cracked near bottom right of image, a few small areas of scuffing, including loss of engraver's name.
John ('Jack') Broughton (c.1703 - 1789), heavyweight boxing champion, the formulator of the first set of boxing rules, and the inventor of mufflers, the forerunners of modern boxing gloves. William Hogarth's oil of c. 1730 is in the National Portrait Gallery, lent by Trustees of the Lowther Estate Trust (NPG L243). However the British Museum's description of this print names the sitter as James Figg rather than John Broughton: Elizabeth Einberg suggests that although the head in the painting was certainly the work of Hogarth, the landscape background was painted by George Lambert, and the body of the sitter perhaps by a third artist. Figg (1684-1734) was another bare-knuckle boxer, who turned to management when he retired. Broughton was one of his protégés.

Painted by W. Hogarth
[Published by Robert Sayer, c.1750]
Engraving with letterpress, scarce, sheet 490 x 310mm (19¼ x 12¼"). Fold through centre; old repaired tear top.
Engraving of William Hogarth's 1748 painting 'O the Roast Beef of Old England' (London, Tate Britain), which Hogarth had himself published as a print. This copy, published by Robert Sayer, has the text of Theodosius Forrest's cantata 'The Roast Beef of Old England' printed beneath the famous image. Forrest, like his father Ebeneezer, was a friend of the artist, and the Hogarth scholar Ronald Paulson regards his text as a 'commentary with some authority' on Hogarth's anti-French satire.

Satire on connoisseurs. Tailpiece to an exhibition held by the 'Society of Artists' at Spring Gardens, Charing Cross, in 1761. This exhibition was organised as artists, including Hogarth, withdrew from exhibiting at a space lent by the Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce on the Strand. Hogarth designed the frontispiece and tailpiece for the catalogue, which together predict increased royal patronage of the arts and the end patronage from connoisseurs. Royal patronage is represented as a plentiful reservoir in the frontispiece, while in this tailpiece a connoisseur dressed as a monkey, holding a magnifying glass, waters three withered and sapless sticks (all labelled with their dates of death, centuries ago) to show the poverty of patronage from connoisseurs. The labelling of the dead trees as 'exoticks' only emphasises the disillusionment of those connoisseurs.

Printed for Thomas Bowles in St Pauls Churchyard and John Bowles at the black Horse in Cornhill [1732].
Set of six line engravings, rare as a set, each 340 x 380mm (13¼ x 15") to platemark. Several small tears, repairs in margins, all professionally repaired.
Early copies of William Hogarth's celebrated set of engravings showing the degrading effects of London life upon a young woman. Hogarth himself had authorised a set of copies by Giles King, to take advantage of the inevitable demand for less expensive copies of the set. However, in Ronald Paulson's estimation Bowles' brought out the present set before King's authorised copies went on sale in late April 1732. Thereafter at least three other sets of unauthorised copies were published. Above each image is a summary, in French, of the scene. These legends are largely similar, although not identical, to the text on King's authorised copies. Neither this text, nor the long verses in rhyming couplets below each image, are taken from Hogarth's own set. The images are reversed from Hogarth's own set, with differences sometimes minor (text added below the sign of the Bell Inn, plate 1) and sometimes significant (the pictures hanging from the wall in plate 2).

Engraving. 425 x 295mm (16¾ x 11½"). A fine impression with full margins.
Portrait of Benjamin Hoadly (1676 - 1761), Bishop of Winchester and controversialist. His left hand is raised as if in blessing, he wears a shoulder length curly white wig and grand ecclesiastical robes; a draped curtain and stained glass in the background. Hoadly, poet, dramatist and clergyman, and son of the Bishop of Winchester, wrote texts for oratorios and musical plays. It has been argued that the plate for this portrait preceded the painting by William Hogarth (1697 - 1764), and that Baron initially copied the Huntington portrait - see Paulson, p.189.
