WHollar delin et sculp 1665
Etching, sheet 95 x 130mm (3¾ x 5").
View of London from Islington made shortly before the Great Fire of London, with the old St Paul's cathedral in the distance and three men practicing archery in the foreground. Etching by Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-77), Bohemian printmaker who spent most of his career working in England. Hollar's technical skill has ensured that his prints have always been keenly collected, and comprehensive collections of his work are at institutions in London, Berlin and Prague. Hollar's life was changed when he met Thomas Howard, second earl of Arundel, at Cologne in 1636: for eight months he travelled in Arundel's retinue at travelled with him to London, taking lodgings at Arundel House and marrying a servant of the countess of Arundel. This is one of a group of small views from north London sometimes thought to have been issued as a set.

A balloon-view of London taken from above Vauxhall, with a 32-point key. The Houses of Parliament and Lambeth Palace are lower left, St George's Circus and Bethlehem Hospital (now the Imperial War Museum) lower right. Other landmarks in the key are Buckingham Palace, Regents Park, St Paul's, Monument and London Bridge. We have assigned the date of 1865 because of the Hungerford Railway Bridge of John Hawkshaw which opened in 1864 and a cursory depiction of Joseph Bazalgette's Victoria Embankent, started 1865 and not finished until 1870. Little is known about the artist, Charles François de Riffardeau, Duc de Rivière (1848-1920). He produced a volume 'Vues de Londres dessinées d'après nature et lithographiées' in 1862 (not including this prospect). His father (with the same name) was French ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, during which time he helped purchase the Venus de Milo for the Louvre.

London and Southwark, with London Bridge crossing the River Thames. The panorama features St. Paul's Cathedral in its previous gothic incarnation, before the Wren building that was completed in 1708. This suggests a piracy of an engraving made before the Great Fire of London of 1666, or that the plate pre-dates the adoption of Wren's design. Possibly derived from a larger but similar view published in a French series of city prospects by Crépy.

“Count L. Magalott, Travels of Cosmo the Third, Grand Duke of Tuscany, through England during the Reign of King Charles the Second 1669” (1821). In 1669 Cosimo de Medici III travelled through various countries, including England. He had in his retinue an artist to record the places he saw and Count Lorenzo Magalotti, who was entrusted with creating a written account. The illustrated manuscript was later deposited in the Laurentian Library, Florence, where the section on the English leg of his tour attracted the interest of English visitors. In the 19th century a translation was made along with Indian ink copies of the original drawings by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd. Those copies are now in the British Library Department of Manuscripts. Scaled down engravings in aquatint from these illustrate the 1821 translation. Panoramic view of Westminster and the City of London from Lambeth, looking across the River Thames to Westminster Abbey, and showing the built-up area from Millbank to the Tower of London. The remains of the old St.Paul's Cathedral with its Inigo Jones facade is to be seen, and numerous church towers that survived the Great Fire of London in 1666.

London. Plate IV.
London. Plate IV.
Drawn, Engraved & Published by William Daniell.
No.9, Cleveland Street, Fitzroy Square, London, June 1. 1804.
Coloured aquatint. 470 x 718mm (18½ x 28¼")
View westwards from the south bank along the Thames with St Paul's upper right. From 'Six Views of London'. William Daniell was a much travelled landscape painter. In 1784 he went to India with his uncle, the artist Thomas Daniell, where he assisted Thomas with his drawing and sketching. By the time they returned to England in 1794, William was not only a proficient draughtsman but had also perfected the art of aquatinting. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1807 and a Royal Academician in 1822. He refused the post of draughtsman to an Australian expedition to instead make numerous sketching tours throughout England and Scotland. Daniell is regarded as a superb aquatinter and his best works are thought to be among his Scottish views for ‘Voyage Round Great Britain’. He died in London in 1837.

London Plate V.
London Plate V.
Drawn, Engraved & Published by William Daniell,
N.o 9 Cleveland Street, Fitzroy Square, London, Jan.y 1, 1805.
Coloured aquatint. Sheet 505 x 870mm (19½ x 34¼"). Repaired tear in lower margin.
The unembanked Somerset House viewed from the opposite shore; Drury Lane on the skyline. From William Daniell's 'Six Views of the Metropolis of the British Empire'. William Daniell RA (1769-1837) was one of the few artists of the period who was as skilled as an aquatinter as he was a painter. It was common practice to add engraved or etched lines to give shape to the tonal effect of the aquatint; this plate is pure aquatint, with no added lines, not even on the rigging of the boats. The margins have been given a grey wash in imitation of watercolour presentation of the period.
See ref. 11769 for Plate VI from the series.
