Figures preparing for a journey, near a pool filled from a waterfall over rocks on the right: two men talking on the left, in front of a laden camel, a woman holding a bundle and a pet dog, another behind her holding a child; a third woman sits to right, helping a child to drink while another child leans against her shoulder, a boy driving livestock towards the water in the centre. In the background a man on horseback followed by others, processing towards a distant town with pyramid. An illustration from the Genesis book of the Bible: following the period spent in Egypt, Abram, Sarai, and his nephew Lot returned to the Bethel-Ai area in Canaan. There they dwelt for some time, their herds increasing, until strife arose between the herdsmen. Abram thereupon proposed to Lot that they should separate, allowing Lot the first choice. Lot took the fertile land lying east of the Jordan River and near to Sodom and Gomorrah, while Abram lived in Canaan, moving south to the oaks of Mamre in Hebron, where he built an altar. After Francesco Zuccarelli (1702 - 1788).

Karl Friedrich Becker (1777 – 1806) was a German educator and historian. His most noted work was Weltgeschichte für Kinder und Kinderlehrer (World History for Children and Teachers of Children) which was widely used and much edited and revised by other noted historians after Becker's death. According to the Bible Absalom rebelled against his father King David and it was at the Battle of Ephraim Wood that Absalom's army was completely routed. Absalom himself was caught by his head in the boughs of an oak-tree as the mule he was riding ran beneath it. He was discovered hanging there still alive by one of David's men, who reported the matter to Joab, the king's commander. David had charged his men to deal gently with his son but Joab thrust three spears through Absalom's heart as he struggled in the branches. Then ten of Joa b's armor-bearers surrounded Absalom and killed him.

Twelve Stories of the Life of Christ.
Twelve Stories of the Life of Christ.
Engraved by Thomas Piroli from the Designs of William Young Ottley Rome Febr. 1796
Published as the Act directs Feb. 1st 1796.
Twelve aquatints with etched titlesheet, each sheet approx 185 x 265mm (7¼ x 10½"). Original stitching and dustsheets; foxing to titlesheet. Fine.
Twelve scenes from the life of Christ, beginning with the Annunciation and concluding with the Resurrection, etched in Rome by the Italian engraver Tommaso Piroli (1752-1824) after designs by William Young Ottley (1771-1836), writer on art and collector. The set was published during Ottley's period of study and travel in Italy (1791-99). Having began collecting as a teenager, Ottley took advantage of the French invasion of Italy in 1796 to acquire works from many prominent collectors wishing to sell their treasures before they were looted. These included paintings by Botticelli and Raphael now in the National Gallery, and old master drawings later sold to Sir Thomas Lawrence and now in the Ashmolean Museum. Returning to London in 1799, Ottley set himself up as a writer, connoisseur, and 'marchand-amateur'. In later life he also became keeper of prints and drawings at the British Museum.

The circumcision of Christ after Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (1591 – 1666), known as Guercino. One of a number of prints after drawings by Guercino and other masters in the Royal Collection, etched by Francesco Bartolozzi (1728 - 1815). The original drawings by the Bolognese artist were acquired by the Earl of Bute while on his Grand Tour, and later given to George III. The king's librarian, Richard Dalton, met Bartolozzi in Italy in the early 1760s. This brought Bartolozzi to London in 1764 under Dalton’s employ. The plates were later bought by the London publishers John and Josiah Boydell, and published in two folio volumes. This appeared in Boydells' 'Eighty-two prints, engraved by F. Bartolozzi & c. from the original drawings of Guercino, in the collection of his Majesty'.

Claude le Lorrain delin.t. R. Earlom fecit.
Published Nov.r 1st 1774 by John Boydell Engraver in Cheapside.
Mezzotint with etched lines, printed in sepia. 210 x 260mm, 8½ x 10¼". Uncut, with large margins, slight soiling of margins.
Samuel anointing David King of Israel in the portico of a temple. Engraved by Richard Earlom (1743 - 1822) after a sketch in the copy of Claude le Lorrain's 'Liber Veritatis' owned by the Duke of Devonshire at Chatsworth. Claude (c.1600-82) was a prolific and successful landscape painter, and, even during his lifetime, forgeries of his work appeared for sale. To combat this Claude made up six albums of tinted sketches of his completed works, each sketch with the name of the purchaser of the painting on the back. The 'Liber Veritatis' (Book of Truth) was then distributed around Europe so that his genuine paintings could be authenticated. The Chatsworth copy of the 'Liber Veritatis' contained 200 drawings, including a frontispiece portrait of Claude and five unrelated drawings. Commissioned by John Boydell, Richard Earlom engraved the full set between 1774 and 1777, when they were published by Boydell in two volumes, each containing 100 prints, numbered 1-200. A third volume of 100 prints was published by Boydell in 1819, which was numbered separately, containing mezzotints by Earlom after other drawings by Claude in various collections.
