Étienne Nicolas Méhul (1763-1817), composer influential in the development of French opera. A physionotrace is an instrument designed to trace a person's profile, invented by a Frenchman named Gilles-Louis Chrétien in 178384. Chrétien's device transmitted the tracing of the silhouette, whilst crucially also including details such as clothing, to an engraving needle via an eyepiece. Enabling the production of multiple and therefore cheap copies, the physionotrace represented a precursor to photography in making portraiture a mass phenomenon.

The ducking of John Osborn & his Wife on a charge of Witchcraft
[Rennoldson after Samuel Wale, c.1770]
Engraving, platemark 180 x 115mm (7 x 4½"). Small margins.
In 1751 John and Ruth Osborn of Tring were accused of witchcraft. A farmer who had refused to spare them some buttermilk subsequently fell ill, and believed he had been cursed by Ruth Osborn. Soon it was announced by town criers that the Osborns were to be ducked in Tring for their 'crimes', and even though they sought sanctuary in the local church, they were dragged out by a baying crowd, and ducked. Ruth Osborn was drowned and while John Osborn survived the ducking, he died soon after. Engraving published in the 'Tyburn Chronicle'. The source drawing by Samuel Wale, a prominent artist who was a founder member of the Royal Academy of Arts, is in the British Museum (registration number 1863,0214.783).

John Pounds, late of St Mary Street Portsmouth, who while making an honest substance by Mending Shoes was also School-Master, Gratuitouslyly, to some hundreds of the Childeren of his poor Neighbours. Born 17 June 1766 _ Died 1 January 1839, Aged 72.
Drawn on Stone by W. Mitchell, from the Original Painting by H.S. Sheaf, in the possession of E. Carter Esq.r.

Lithograph. Sheet 435 x 315mm (17 x 12½"). Trimmed to image at top.
Apprenticed as a shipwright in the Portsmouth dockyard, Pounds was still a teenager when he fell into a dry dock, leaving him with permanent, crippling injuries. He became a cobbler, but while he worked he would give the poor and homeless children the basics of education. He would entice them in with hot baked potatoes, sometimes having as many as 40 children in his fourteen by eighteen feet workshop, as illustrated here. Thomas Guthrie (often credited with the creation of Ragged Schools) wrote his 'Plea for Ragged Schools' in 1847, proclaiming John Pounds as the originator of the idea. The 'Gentleman's Magazine' obituary of Pounds was published in February 1840, in which this print was described.

In the subsequent War of the Grand Alliance, Russell served at sea, commanding a fleet after 1690. In 1692, Russell was Commander-in-Chief of the Anglo-Dutch force that fought the French fleet at Barfleur, and destroyed much of it at La Hogue, his victory there being the decisive naval battle of the war. Russell became First Lord of the Admiralty in 1694, remaining in that post until 1699.

[George Villiers, first duke of Buckingham]
[George Villiers, first duke of Buckingham]
RE [for Renold Elstrack]
[published c.1700]
Engraving, platemark 255 x 180mm (10 x 7") large margins.
George Villiers, first duke of Buckingham (1592-1628), royal favourite, portrayed full-length with encampment and city in background. The initials 'RE' suggest the print was made by Renold Elstrack (1570-c.1625), the foremost English engraver of his time. In fact, Hind suggests that this is an eighteenth-century plate with Elstrack's initials fraudulently added to the second state. The first state, which bears text identifying the sitter and claiming dubiously that 'this plate hath been many years Preserved in a great persons Closet', was published (without the 'RE' monogram) by Benjamin Cole of Oxford (for an image of this state see NPG D5812).
