Landscape after Samuel Hieronymous Grimm (1733-94) by the little-known etcher J. Tobin (1770s, fl.). Grimm was a Swiss painter who moved to England around the time this print was made, where he became known for his versatility, producing illustrations to Shakespeare, topographical views, caricatures, and drawings of antiquities. As Joseph Strutt writes of Tobin in his biographical dictionary of engravers: 'he was a native of England, and etched several small plates of landscapes from H. Grim. We have also some small tinted plates from him, from Both, Ostade, and other painters'. Probably from a volume of Tobin's etchings.

The English Atlas. Volume II. Tome I.
The English Atlas. Volume II. Tome I. Anno 1681.
[Oxford, Moses Pitt, 1681.]
Engraving. 410 x 270mm, 16 x 10½". Trimmed close to plate.
One of the titlepages to the first English attempt at a 'Grand Atlas', a multi-volume atlas in the style of the Dutch cartographers. Moses Pitt began his plan to create the atlas in 1670, producing the first volume a decade later. He had to rely on existing Dutch maps rather than producing his own, negotiating use of the plates of Johannes Jansson to be published with English text. This volume contained maps of Germany, so this titlepage shows the Holy Roman Emperor (left) and his seven Electors. The double-headed eagle and arms at the top are overseen by the eye of the trinity. Originally intended to be a 12-volume set, arguments among the partners meant the project ground to a halt after four. In 1686 Pitt Atlas was arrested for debt and confined to the Fleet Prison and nothing is known of him after 1691.
