John Pounds, late of St Mary Street Portsmouth,
John Pounds, late of St Mary Street Portsmouth, who while making an honest substance by Mending Shoes was also School-Master, Gratuitouslyly, to some hundreds of the Childeren of his poor Neighbours. Born 17 June 1766 _ Died 1 January 1839, Aged 72.
Drawn on Stone by W. Mitchell, from the Original Painting by H.S. Sheaf, in the possession of E. Carter Esq.r.
Printed & Published by W.H. Charpentier, Artists' Repository 50, High Street, Portsmouth. [n.d., 1839.]
Lithograph. Sheet 435 x 315mm (17 x 12½"). Trimmed to image at top.
Apprenticed as a shipwright in the Portsmouth dockyard, Pounds was still a teenager when he fell into a dry dock, leaving him with permanent, crippling injuries. He became a cobbler, but while he worked he would give the poor and homeless children the basics of education. He would entice them in with hot baked potatoes, sometimes having as many as 40 children in his fourteen by eighteen feet workshop, as illustrated here. Thomas Guthrie (often credited with the creation of Ragged Schools) wrote his 'Plea for Ragged Schools' in 1847, proclaiming John Pounds as the originator of the idea. The 'Gentleman's Magazine' obituary of Pounds was published in February 1840, in which this print was described.

Admiral of the Fleet Edward Russell, 1st Earl of Orford, PC (1653-1727), First Lord of the Admiralty under King William III. Russell was named Lieutenant at the age of eighteen and saw active service in the North Sea before serving in the Mediterranean in the operations against the Barbary Pirates with Sir John Narborough and Arthur Herbert (1676-82). In 1683 he fell into disfavour with Charles II after the discovery of his connection with the Rye House Plot. In 1688, Russell was one of the Immortal Seven, a group of English nobleman who issued the Invitation to William, a document asking William of Orange to depose King James II. In the subsequent War of the Grand Alliance, Russell served at sea, commanding a fleet after 1690. In 1692, Russell was Commander-in-Chief of the Anglo-Dutch force that fought the French fleet at Barfleur, and destroyed much of it at La Hogue, his victory there being the decisive naval battle of the war. Russell became First Lord of the Admiralty in 1694, remaining in that post until 1699. He served in the Mediterranean from 1694 to 1695 and was created Baron Shingey, Viscount Barfleur, and Earl of Orford in 1697.

[Women as Allegories of the Four Seasons]
[Women as Allegories of the Four Seasons]
[By (Autumn, Winter) and after (Spring, Summer) Wenceslaus Hollar, c.1644-7]
Four etchings, each approx 180 x 140mm (7 x 5"), paired in Hogarth frames, mismatched mounts. Unexamined out of frames.
In 1644 Wenceslaus Hollar etched a set of half-length figures representing the four seasons. Of the present set, Spring and Summer are copies in reverse, probably issued by Peter Stent (publisher of the original set) or Peregrine Lovell. Autumn and Winter are not reversed and are either from a different set of copies or, as seems possible, by Hollar himself. If this were the case, the fact that they are unlettered would make them very rare (Antony Griffiths in 'The Print in Stuart Britain' notes that only three series of these plates before letters are known).
See Pennington 614-7.
