Kambyses te Memphis d'Egiptische Afgoderie bespottende, Dood den Vermaarden Godt Apis; en doed desselfs Feest in een Bloed-Bad eindigen.
[Romain de Hooghe.]
Engraving. Image 277 x 356mm. 11 x 14". Cut and laid. A scene that appears to be mocking great Apis. The Apis was a god to be venerated for his excellent kindness and for his mercy towards all strangers. However in de Hooghe's engraving we see nothing other than a blood bath. The Apis is seen in the centre of the image acknowledging the betrayal.

[Peace Conference and Ratification at Breda, 1667]
R. de Hooghe f. et inv.
te Amsterdam by J. Ottens
Thread margins; glued to backing sheet at top corners. The Treaty of Breda, at Breda Castle (Netherlands) which brought an end to the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665-1667) in favour of the Dutch. This Treaty ceded the New Netherlands to the British Crown which included the Colonies of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. An important historical American image. The delegates are depicted in the conference chamber (centre) with the British delegations arriving (top) and leaving (bottom). Three small scenes on the left and right provide additional information on the topography of Breda.The print was first published in the year of the treaty but this state, published by Joachim Ottens (b.1663) is a later publication. Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708) was a leading representative of the late Dutch baroque, whose many prints aimed to glorify William III (Stadtholder of the Netherlands and King of England) and to reporting on the wars of the late 17th century.

Londonderri [sic]. Double victory upon the Barbars...
Tot Leyden, Gedruckt by Iohannes Tangena, Kaert-en Boeckverkooper, over de Academie. Anno 1690 [Leiden, The Netherlands].
The etching with water stains, vertical creases, and trimmed into plate at right. The Siege of Derry (Londonderry) took place in Ireland from 18 April to 28 July 1689, during the Williamite War in Ireland. The city, a Williamite stronghold, was besieged by a Jacobite army until it was relieved by Royal Navy ships. The siege is commemorated annually in August by the Apprentice Boys of Derry. The battle scene is by Romeyn de Hooghe (Dutch, 1645 - 1708), a propagandist for William of Orange (King William III). A panorama of another battlefield, the 'Seige of Bonn' (1689), also by de Hooghe, was originally issued by Johannes Tangena on the same sheet, directly below. The two plates were often separated, and the letterpress commemorates both battles.
