A view of the remains of the Aqueduct of Hadrian, on the slopes of Anchesmos, to the north east of the Acropolis in Athens, published in the 'Antiquities of Athens and Other Monuments of Greece' by James 'Athenian' Stuart & Nicholas Revett.

Engraving with letterpress sheet, each 210 x 130mm (8¼ x 5"). Slightly time stained.
Dinocrates' proposal to build a city dedicated to Alexander the Great on Mount Athos, with a colossal image of Alexander sculpted in its side. Alexander holds a building (standing for the city) in his left hand, while a river flows into the sea from above his right arm.

From the 'Wonderful Magazine', an entertaining but short-lived periodical founded in 1793 by the hack writer and bookseller Henry Lemoine (1756-1812).

A portrait in an oval of French naval commander and privateer Jean Bart (1650 - 1702).

In this capacity he displayed such astonishing bravery, that Louis XIV sent him on a special mission to the Mediterranean, where he gained great distinction. He went on to achieve his greatest successes during the Nine Years' War (16881697).
