Cornelis de Bruijn (1652-c.1727) was a Dutch artist and traveller in the Levant and Russia. Following two large tours he published illustrated books of his observations of the people, buildings, plants and animals. The output of publisher, Cluer Dicey (c.1713 - 1775) consisted mostly of re-issued plates, in this case a Dutch plate from about 1690. He is most famous as the last publisher of John Speed's county maps in 1770, over one-and-a-half centuries after their first issue!

Engraving, very fine & rare; sheet 340 x 250mm (13¼ x 9¾"). Trimmed; tipped into album sheet.
Nell Gwyn (1651?-1687), actress and mistress of Charles II, in a landscape as a shepherdess. Gwyn arrived in London as an orange-seller and rose to become one of the leading comic actresses of the day. The playwright Dryden supplied her with a series of saucy, bustling parts, ideally suited to her talents. She had two sons by the King, the elder of whom was created duke of St Albans, and she was said to have been remembered by Charles on his deathbed with the words "Let not poor Nelly starve".
For another engraving after the same painting by Lely see ref. 19681.

Imprimé chez Nicolas Visscher Avec Privil. des Etats Generaux. [n.d., c.1688.]
Engraving, 340 x 260mm. 13½ x 10¼". Faint horizontal crease.
King William III (1650 - 1702) as Prince of Orange, before he ascended the British throne in 1689. The posthumous son of the Stadholder William II of Holland and Mary, daughter of Charles I, William married his cousin Mary, daughter of James II and Anne Hyde in 1677. In 1688 he accepted an invitation by a group of leading statesmen to land in Britain with an armed force; after the flight of James II he was crowned king, jointly with his wife, in 1689. William's life-long devotion to the fight against French expansionism benefited from additional resources after he became King. Although he lacked warmth and physical presence he showed considerable political, diplomatic and military ability. Engraving by Gerard Valck (1651/1652 - 1726), first published by Nicolaas Visscher I c.1675. Later states show William as King of England; the plate was later transformed into George I.
