Sir Thomas Allin, 1st Baronet (1612-1685) was an officer of the Royal Navy who saw service in the English Civil War, and the Second and Third Anglo-Dutch Wars. A Royalist during the Civil War, he returned to service after the Restoration and eventually rose to the rank of Admiral after serving under some of the most distinguished military figures of the era, including Prince Rupert of the Rhine. He remained in the service of Prince Rupert of the Rhine in the exiled royalist fleet after the Civil War, as evidenced by the issuing of Prince Rupert's Further Instructions for Captain Thomas Allen. He commanded the Royalists' Charles in 1648 until her capture in 1649, and subsequently commanded the Convertine in 1650. Allin was rewarded for his loyalty to the monarchy after the English Restoration by being given command of HMS Dover on 24 June 1660. He went on to command HMS Plymouth and HMS Foresight during 1661, HMS Lion during 1662 and HMS Rainbow during 1663.[2] During 1663 he was made commander in chief in the Downs with the rank of commodore, flying his pennant aboard HMS St Andrew from 15 April 1664. Allin was then nominated to succeed Sir John Lawson as commander in the Mediterranean, and sailed to take up his command aboard the Plymouth from 26 June, and in company with HMS Crown. He operated out of Tangiers initially, and while operating in the Straits of Gibraltar he and his fleet intercepted and engaged the Dutch Smyrna fleet on 9 December, capturing and sinking several of the Dutch ships. Allin returned to England in the spring of 1665, and took part in the Battle of Lowestoft on 13 June 1665. For his achievements he was awarded a knighthood on 24 June and was appointed an Admiral of the Blue squadron under the Earl of Sandwich. He flew his flag in HMS Royal James from 19 July 1665 and became an Admiral of the White on 16 March 1666. Prince Rupert then came aboard, with orders to take the squadron into the English Channel to intercept a French fleet believed to sailing up the Channel to join with the Dutch. Rupert retained Allin as his first captain for this assignment, but the intelligence was proved to be false, and no French fleet was found. By now though the rest of the English fleet under the Duke of Albemarle had sailed out to engage a Dutch fleet under Michiel de Ruyter, and the Four Days Battle had broken out. Rupert and Allin hurried back and met up with the harried and outnumbered English fleet on the third day, managing to hold the Dutch off long enough to allow a successful disengagement and then covering the retreat. The next engagement with the Dutch fleet took place on 4 August 1666, at the St. James's Day Battle. Allin was in command of the van squadron, and led the attack, engaging the Dutch van throughout the day, and chasing them from the battle scene the following day, greatly contributing to the English victory. Allin was then placed in command of a squadron off Dungeness, and on 17 September he captured the French ship Rubis, which was taken into service as HMS French Ruby. Allin's next command was to take over the Mediterranean forces in 1668, after the end of the Second Anglo-Dutch War, and to operate against the Barbary corsairs. A treaty was duly signed with the Algerians, but by 1669 Allin was employed again in chastising the pirates for breaches of the treaty, during which time he captured and destroyed a large number of pirate vessels. He returned to England after this and on 15 April 1671 he became Comptroller of the Navy, a post he held throughout the Third Anglo-Dutch War and continued to hold until 28 January 1680. In 1673 Allin was created a baronet for his services. He briefly returned to active service in 1678 when the threat of war with France emerged, and Allin became commander in chief of the fleet in the Narrow Seas, with HMS Royal James as his flagship. He resigned the command once the threat of war had passed.

François Jean Dominique Arago (1786-1853), French mathematician, astronomer, whose recalculation of the Paris Meridian are commemorated by the 135 Arago medallions set into the ground through Paris. In the 1848 Revolution he joined the Provisional Government, in which he was responsible for abolishing flogging in the French Navy and then succeeded in procuring the abolition of slavery in the French colonies. In May he briefly served as Prime Minister of France, until the collective resignation of the Executive Power Commission in June. When Napoleon III took power in 1851 an oath of allegiance from all its functionaries, was required: Arago sent in his resignation as astronomer at the Bureau des Longitudes rather than take the oath, but Louis-Napoleon refused it and made "an exception in favour of a savant whose works had thrown lustre on France, and whose existence the government would regret to embitter."

A large engraving of the statue of Charles II as a Roman Emperor, carved by Arnold Quellin in partnership with Grinling Gibbons in 1681. It was erected in the Royal Exchange by the Society of Merchant Adventurers of England in 1684, and was destroyed by the fire that razed the Exchange in 1838. The statue met with the king's approval so he took steps to ensure that Gibbons profited: the 'London Gazette' for 15 May 1684 carried an announcement: 'His Majesty, being well satisfied with the performance of Mr Grinling Gibbons in the making his Majesties statue lately set up in the Royal Exchange, hath been pleased to forbid all persons to copy the same in graving, etching or in mezzotinto, without the approbation of the said Mr Gibbons'. This print was advertised for sale in 12 January 1685, published by Dorman Newman; the plate passed to Mortier after Newman's bankruptcy in 1694 and then to John King after Mortier's death c.1728.

The statue of Charles II in the Royal Exchange, after Grinling Gibbons. As the dedication on the pedestal records, this statue of Charles II in the habit of a Roman Emperor with laurel about his head was erected in the Royal Exchange by the Society of Merchant Adventurers of England in 1684. It was destroyed by the fire that razed the Exchange in 1838, though a similar one in bronze is at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea. Vertue (IV 35) records that the stone statue was actually carved by Arnold Quellin, with whom Gibbons had entered into partnership in 1681. This was dissolved in 1683, presumably after the statue had been finished (see Katharine Gibson, in The Royal Exchange, ed.A.Saunders, 1997, pp.151-7). Gibbons obtained a most unusual type of patent to protect his statue. The 'London Gazette' for 15 May 1684 carries an announcement: 'His Majesty, being well satisfied with the performance of Mr Grinling Gibbons in the making his Majesties statue lately set up in the Royal Exchange, hath been pleased to forbid all persons to copy the same in graving, etching or in mezzotinto, without the approbation of the said Mr Gibbons.' Gibbons must have been very much in Charles's favour, for the London Gazette of 10 May 1686 announces an exceptional Royal permission for Gibbons and Parry Walton to hold a sale of pictures in the Banqueting House in Whitehall. This print was advertised in the Observator of 12 January 1685: 'The exact draught of the marble statue of his Majesty in the Royall Exchange so long expected is now (by permission of authority) finished. Curiously engraven by Mr Vandrebanc, and printed on a large sheet of imperiall paper. To be sold by Dorman Newman at the Kings Arms in the Poultry. Price 2s 6d.' Newman was a large-scale book publisher who issued a few prints between 1665 and his bankruptcy in 1694. He also put a notice of this plate in the Term Catalogues for February 1685 and November 1687: in the latter the price was reduced to 1s 6d. From Newman, the plate passed into the hands of David Mortier, a bookseller who sold at the sign of Erasmus Head in the Strand. Mortier died c.1728, and the plate passed to John King in the Poultry, the great reprinter of old plates (an impression published by King is in Crowle XII 49).

By Andrew Fairbairn Affleck (1874 - 1935). Along with Hedley Fitton and Axel Haig, Affleck ranked as one of Britain's most important architectural etchers of the early twentieth century. Best known for his large plates, Affleck etched many views in England, Holland, Italy, Belgium and in America. Around 1910, he moved permanently to France and some of his finest art deals with French buildings and their interiors. Today, the largest collections of Andrew Affleck's original etchings are housed in the British Museum, London.

[Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey]
[Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey] Veritas Ex Cineribus Reviviscit Aetatis Suae 57 [...]
P. Vandrebanc Sculp.
Are to be Sold at Thomas Cherets in James Street Covent Garden.
Engraving, sheet 340 x 235mm (13½ x 9¼"). Trimmed and glued to backing sheet at edges.
Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey (1621-78), magistrate, died in mysterious circumstances soon after becoming involved in the scandal of the Popish Plot in September 1678. He took depositions from Titus Oates, later to be revealed as having invented the 'plot' to kill Charles II and his brother James, duke of York, despite being uncertain whether he should have done so. Soon after, Godfrey's body was found lying in a ditch near Primrose Hill in London, with a sword run through him (strangulation marks were also found). A verdict of murder was brought in, and almost inevitably blame was laid on the Catholic community once the revelations about Oates' deposition emerged. This print, with its assertion Godfrey was 'Murthered by Papists', typifies this response, although in fact his murder was never satisfactorily solved.

London, Printed for John Bowles at the Black Horse in Cornhill.
Mezzotint with very large margins. 325 x 225mm (12¾ x 9")
Elizabeth Gunning (1733-90) met James Hamilton, 6th Duke of Hamilton and Argyll, at a party in London. Robert Walpole reported that he insisted that they marry that night, and called for a local parson to perform the ceremony. However, without a license, calling of banns and a ring, the parson refused, so they married that night in Mayfair Chapel. Her sister Maria (1733-60) was also a beauty who married well, in her case George William Coventry, 6th Earl of Coventry. Andrew Miller (d.1763), was an engraver in Dublin. Challoner Smith notes 'Nearly all the prints by Miller are of very great rarity' (p.921).

Isabella, daughter of Philip II and ruler of the Spanish Netherlands (1566-1633) with her husband Albert. After Albert's death she became a nun, in which habit she is shown here. Etched by the Scottish painter and etcher Andrew Geddes (1783-1844) after a portrait by van Dyck (Turin, Galleria Sabauda). The Oxford DNB states that 'as an etcher Geddes ranks higher than as a painter; his plates may be regarded as among the very earliest examples in modern British art of the brilliancy, concentration, and spirited selection of line proper to a ‘painter's-etching’'. This impression was printed by the printmaker and author Ernest Lumsden, who must have acquired the plate.
