Lithograph. Sheet 430 x 380mm (17 x 15"), with blindstamp in inscription area. Laid on album paper.
A portrait of Don Fernando Girón and his commanders during the successful defence of the city during the English 'Cadiz Expedition' of 1625. The elderly Girón sits in a sedan chair with his deputy commander, Diego Ruiz, standing before him. Behind can be seen different moments in the siege, with the naval attacks and land battles, including the English being chased back to their boats. The 'Cadiz Expedition' was an ill-conceived attempt by the Duke of Buckingham to gain prestige by emulating the exploits of the Elizabethan adventurers. In the autumn of 1625 nearly 100 ships and a total of 15,000 men were sent to attack Cadiz under Sir Edward Cecil, a capable soldier, but completely inexperienced at sea. Having faced heavy storms on the way they missed their main objective, a treasure ship from the Americas; and when Cecil landed his troops he realised he didn't have the supplies to maintain them. The landed troops resorted to scavenging, and unfortunately found too many wine vats. When Cecil gave the inevitable order to withdraw over a thousand troops were left behind, so drunk that the counter-attacking Spanish could run them through where they lay (depicted by the building at the centre of the background). The expedition cost the English an estimated £250,000, and in 1626, when Parliament attempted to impeach Buckingham for the ineptitude of the planning, Charles I had to dissolve Parliament to protect his favourite. Although attributed here to Eugenio Caxés, the painting was painted by Francisco de Zurbarán in 1634 and is now in the Prado Museum. This lithograph is from the 'Colección lithographica de cuadros del rey de España el señor Fernando VII'.

Ukraine: A view of Caffa, built in the form of an amphiteatre. It has regained its ancient name of Theodosia since it has been possessed by the Russians. It was built by the Greeks in the fifth century, upon the ruins of Theodosia; the Genoese took it from the Tartars in 1226, and 71 years later the Venetians drove out the Genoese, who soon after got possession of it for the second time, and fortified it. In the year 1474, it feel into the hands of the Turks, when of course it lost both its trade and commerce, which had been considerable up until this time. In the year 1774, it was ceded by the Turks to Russia. From "Museum Worsleyanum; or a Collection of Antique Basso-Relievos, Bustos, Statues, and Gems' with Views of Places in the Levant.

[Naples, 1784.]
Engraving with original colour, margins with grey wash. 210 x 330mm (8½ x 13"). Very large margins.
A view of the town of Villanova, which was badly damaged by the Calabrian earthquakes of February and March 1793. Pompeo Schiantarelli (1746-1802/5), an architect, led a team from Neapolitan Academy of Science and Letters to record the devastation, which killed 35,000 people in the region. He also helped with the rebuilding efforts, planning two towns, Polistena and Mileto. Schianarellu published his account as 'Istoria de' fenomeni del tremoto avvenuto nelle Calabrie e nel Valdemone nell'anno 1783' (Account of the Effects of the Earthquake in Calabria in 1783). The plates are very similar in style to those in William Hamilton's study of volcanoes, 'Campi Phlegraei', 1776-9, also published in Naples.

Cales [i.e. Calais]
[Wenceslaus Hollar, c.1644-50]
Etching, sheet 55 x 135mm (2¼ x 5¼"). Trimmed;
The French port town of Calais viewed from the sea. One of a set of 'English views' by Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-77), Bohemian printmaker who spent most of his career working in England after meeting Thomas Howard, second earl of Arundel, in Cologne in 1636. In 1644 Hollar moved to Antwerp (where Arundel was living at the time), and Pennington suggests Hollar may have sketched Calais from the sea, along with views of the Channel Islands in the same series, when travelling from England to the continent that year.

Carlo III (1486-1553), duke of Savoy, often called 'il Buono' ('the good'). Carlo was a younger son of of Filippo II (see ref. 41068), who having spent much of his life without possessions, unexpectedly became duke shortly before his death owing to the death in childhood of Carlo II (see ref. 41067). This made Carlo duke following the death of his father's half-brother Filiberto II in 1504. After France invaded Savoy in 1535 and held almost all of Carlo's possessions, he spent the rest of his life in near-exile. After F.J. de Lange, it is one of the 33 portraits of the Dukes of Savoy engraved by Georges Tasnière for 'Augustae Regiæque Sabaudæ domus arbor gentilitia', 1702.

The Infante Carlos of Spain (1788-1855), son of Charles IV of Spain and first of the Carlist claimants to the Spanish throne. Shortly before his death, Carlos' brother king Ferdinand VII had changed the law (the 'Pragmatic Sanction') to permit his daughter Isabella to succeed to the throne.

From this dispute the First Carlist War took place in the 1830s, only definitively concluding in 1840, by which time Carlos had left Spain for France.

During Philipp Hackert's time in Naples he became a close friend of Goethe, who edited and published the artist's memoirs after his death.
