[Set of landscapes after Claude Lorrain's 'Liber Veritatis'.]
Claude le Lorrain delin. R. Earlom Fecit.
Published May 1st 1775 by John Boydell Engraver in Cheapside.
20 plates numbered sequentially 81-100 (lower left), etched outline states before mezzotinting, from 'Liber Veritatis or a collection of two hundred prints after the original designs of Claude Le Lorrain ... executed by R. Earlom'. Disbound and lacking binding, on watermarked laid paper, stitching holes to left margins. Generally fine impressions, with full margins. Crease through lower right corner of final plate.
A magnificent set of these decorative pastoral, and occasionally marine and urban, landscapes after Claude Lorrain (1600 - 1682). The first plate shows figures and cattle crossing a stream, a capriccio of Tivoli beyond; the final composition portrays the Death of Procris, a man and dog standing over a woman who lies on the ground beneath a tree in the foreground with an arrow in her chest. Richard Earlom (British, 1743 - 1822) made a set of prints after Claude's "Book of Truth" (drawings from his own paintings) while it was in the collection of the Dukes of Devonshire at Chatsworth; they were bound into an album together with a frontispiece portrait of Claude and five unrelated drawings, bringing the total number of drawings by Claude contained in it to 200. The Earlom set was engraved between 1774 and 1777, published by Boydell in two volumes in 1777, each containing 100 prints, numbered 1-200. A third volume of 100 prints was published by Boydell in 1819, which was numbered separately, 1-100, and contained Earlom's prints after other drawings by Claude in various collections.

Frontispiece to a later edition of 'Lexicon tetraglotton' (first edition 1660) by James Howell (1594?-1666), a dictionary in four languages. The four women are emblematic of the English, French, Spanish and Italian languages. The publication of this work was supported by Bulstrode Whitelock (for whom see ref. 21594). Engraving by William Faithorne (c.1620-91), printmaker who was apprenticed to the printseller William Peake, with whom he served in the royalist army during the civil war. At the Restoration Faithorne was appointed engraver in copper to the king, doubtless as reward for his devotion to the Stuart cause. The finest native British engraver born before the eighteenth century, Faithorne was highly esteemed by Pepys (who recorded many visits to his shop) while enthusiasts such as Horace Walpole ensured his posthumous reputation, which led to fine proofs of his work fetching extraordinary prices in the late Georgian period.

[Horse Chestnut]
J Martin
[London, Published May 15th 1817 at R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 101 Strand.]
Etching, sheet 330 x 270mm (13 x 10½"). Trimmed losing text. Crease; slight foxing.
Horse chestnut with two groups of figures, and deer, beneath. One of seven etchings contained in John Martin's (1789-1854) first commercial publication, 'Characters of Trees' (1817). The work contained no text, being simply a series of unnumbered prints advertised as a drawing book. According to Campbell, ''Horse Chestnut' is, without doubt, the most elaborate of the etchings produced for 'Characters of Trees''. Martin (1789 - 1854) is best known for his paintings and mezzotints of biblical subjects, in which capacity his hold on the popular imagination was unparalleled in its day. In the 20th century the influence of these works has continued to be felt- Martin's mezzotint of Belshazzar's Feast was the basis of the enormous Babylon set constructed for D.W. Griffith's film 'Intolerance' (1916).

Pine with ruined castle and distant mountains beyond, with a contrast between the strong foreground and faint, distant background produced by a 'stopping out' technique during the biting of the copper plate. One of seven etchings contained in John Martin's (1789-1854) first commercial publication, 'Characters of Trees' (1817). The work contained no text, being simply a series of unnumbered prints advertised as a drawing book. A preparatory drawing is in the Courtauld Institute collection.
