[Published by Carel Allardt.]
Etching. 475 x 572mm. A good but uneven impression, with some underinked sections at the left, some folds and small tears repaired, backed. A portrait of William III of Orange surrounded by his ancestors and predecessors as Stadtholder: from left to right, William I of Orange (William the Silent); his elder son, Maurits; Williamís father William II; and Frederik Hendrik, William IIIís grandfather and youngest son of William I. In the cartouche below a view of his entry into Amsterdam, 12 August, 1672. The print celebrates the reinstatement of the joint post of Stadtholder and Captain General after the Republican faction had abolished it in 1668. In 1672, faced with a French invasion, William took control of the Dutch army and was appointed Stadtholder of Holland and West-Friesland.
Unrecorded early state, without the hat and with engraved letters at top 'Sijn Konincklijcke Hoocheijt, met sijn Doorluchtige Voorvaderen'.
From the collection of James Watt Jr (1769-1848), son of the celebrated James Watt of steam engine fame. He was also an engineer and, after spending some years in Paris at the time of the Revolution, he became a partner in Boulton and Watt, Birmingham, in 1794. His home was Aston Hall, Birmingham, which he rented from 1819 until his death. (See Oliver Fairclough, The Grand Old Mansion. The Holtes and their successors at Aston Hall, 1618-1864, Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery, 1984). He also designed and built the south half of Doldowlod Hall, Radnorshire, which has remained the home of his heirs and descendants, the Gibson-Watt family.

Syn Koninckl: Hoogheit, de Heer Prince van Orangjen,wert Capite in Generael gemaeckt den 25 Febr: 1672. [Dutch title to banner cartouche; William of Orange taking the oath as the new stadtholder of the Netherlands.]
R. De Hooghe, Amsterdam, n.d. 1675.]
Etching, 180 x 300mm. 7 x 11¾". Vertical fold (as normal). The future King William III (1650 - 1702) behind a table in an interior of room, surrounded by officials, taking oath as the new Captain-General of the Dutch States Army, beneath a royal coat of arms. In view of the threat of an Anglo-French attack, the States of Gelderland wanted William to be appointed Captain-General as soon as possible, despite his youth and inexperience. On 15 December 1671 the States of Utrecht made this their official policy. On 19 January 1672 the States of Holland made a counterproposal: to appoint William for just a single campaign. The prince refused this and on 25 February a compromise was reached: an appointment by the States-General of the Netherlands for one summer, followed by a permanent appointment on his twenty-second birthday.
Maurice of Nassau received the title of "Captain General of the Union" and "Admiral General" in 1587, which became hereditary - like the Stadtholder title, to the Orange-Nassau family, until taken away by the States General in 1786.
The relationship between this print and an almost identical composition of a similar date (with different background) by Bernard Picart (item 16697, showing William taking the oath as stadtholder) is unclear; the one presumably copied and adapted from the other.
