Vorsterman sculptor D.D.: Hansus Holbenius pinxit. Cum Privilegio Reg: [c.1625]
Engraving. 210 x 145mm (8¼ x 5¾"). Trimmed inside platemark; tipped into album sheet with hand-drawn borders around edges.
Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536), Dutch Renaissance humanist and a Catholic theologian. Erasmus prepared important new Latin and Greek editions of the New Testament, and also wrote The Praise of Folly, Handbook of a Christian Knight, On Civility in Children, Copia: Foundations of the Abundant Style, Julius Exclusus, and many other works. Erasmus lived through the Reformation period and he consistently criticized some contemporary popular Christian beliefs. In relation to clerical abuses in the Church, Erasmus remained committed to reforming the Church from within. He also held to Catholic doctrines such as that of free will, which some Protestant Reformers rejected in favour of the doctrine of predestination. His middle road disappointed and even angered many Protestants, such as Martin Luther, as well as conservative Catholics. One of the earliest of many prints reproducing the famous 1532 portrait of Erasmus by Hans Holbein the younger. Engraved by Lucas Vorsterman I (1595-1675), a favoured engraver of his contemporaries Rubens and Van Dyck. Despite his close relationship with Rubens (who was godfather to Vorsterman's eldest son), the engraver felt exploited by the famous painter. At one point Vorsterman made an attempt on Rubens' life, and subsequently moved to England, where he was employed by Charles I, Thomas Howard and the Earl of Pembroke to reproduce paintings from their collections. Howard was then the owner of this picture (one of many versions of the portrait that exist but one of the only ones believed to be painted by Holbein himself). The painting is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Finding of Arms or A Midnight Domiciliary Visit to the Boarding School.
Finding of Arms or A Midnight Domiciliary Visit to the Boarding School.
[by Charles Williams]
No.111 Cheapside
Etching with hand-colouring, platemark 250 x 380mm (9¾ x 15") large margins. Paper watermarked 'G. Wilmott / 1819'
Satire on the Search for Arms Act, brought in December 1819. This print, in which a police-officer with a warrant searches the dormitory of a female boarding school during the night, responds specifically to protests against searches being conducted during the night on account that they would subject women to 'insult and indignity'. Etching by Charles Williams (1797 - 1830, fl.), prolific etcher of satires from his own designs and those of other artists (especially Woodward). Almost all his plates are anonymous and little work has been done to establish for certain which prints he made. As a result Williams is little-known in comparison with contemporaries such as Rowlandson and Gillray in spite of the comparable quality of some of his work.
