[Anne de Montmorency]
[Anne de Montmorency] Annas de Montmorency Comes Stabuli Sub Ludov.o 12.o Francisco i.o
[1660]
Engraving with accompanying letterpress sheet, each 470 x 350mm (18½ x 13¾") very large margins. Slight foxing.
Anne de Montmorency (1493-1567), French soldier, statesman and diplomat. Montmorency spent most of his career serving under king Francis I, fighting in the Italian wars and then, as governor of Languedoc, defending Provence against the invasion of Charles V from northern Italy. He was also an important diplomat, working with Cardinal Wolsey to negotiate an alliance between Francis I and Henry VII in 1527, although he fell from favour after a settlement he brokered with Charles V failed. Montmorency recovered his previous status, however, under subsequent French monarchs. From 'Les Portraits des Hommes Illustres Francois qui sont Peints dans la Galerie du Palais Cardinal de Richelieu' (1660). The book reproduces the portraits of great men hanging in Richelieu's 'Galerie des hommes illustres' by Simon Vouet and Philippe de Champaigne (although only four of the original paintings survive). The final 'illustrious figure' was Richelieu himself.

Mezzotint, very scarce. 440 x 340mm (17¼ x 13¼). Slight scratch bottom right.
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."
