Ali Pasha (1740-1822), the Lion of Yannina, a Muslim Albanian ruler who served as an Ottoman pasha of the western part of Rumelia, the Ottoman Empire's European territory. A cruel ruler, he set about creating an almost-independent Greek-speaking state, allying himself with Napoleon, the British and whoever would serve him best. He eventually irked Sultan Mahmud II enough to send an army to bring him back under Ottoman control. Accepting the offer of a pardon he retired to a monastery, but soldiers were sent to arrest him for execution. Aged 82 he died fighting, shot through the floor of his room then beheaded.

A view of the remains of the Aqueduct of Hadrian, on the slopes of Anchesmos, to the north east of the Acropolis in Athens, published in the 'Antiquities of Athens and Other Monuments of Greece' by James 'Athenian' Stuart & Nicholas Revett. Stuart (1713–88) and Revett (1720–1804) joined Gavin Hamillton and Matthew Brettingham on a Grand Tour of Italy, the Balkans & Greece between 1748-55.

A view and an elevation of the Monument of Philopappus, published in the 'Antiquities of Athens and Other Monuments of Greece' by James 'Athenian' Stuart & Nicholas Revett.

Julius Antiochus Philopappos, the grandson of the last king of Commagene, a Syrian kingdom abolished by emperor Vespasian in AD72, took Athenian citizenship. His monument, containing his tomb, was built AD114.

Engraving with letterpress sheet, each 210 x 130mm (8¼ x 5"). Slightly time stained.
Dinocrates' proposal to build a city dedicated to Alexander the Great on Mount Athos, with a colossal image of Alexander sculpted in its side. Alexander holds a building (standing for the city) in his left hand, while a river flows into the sea from above his right arm.

[London: Elizabeth Stuart, 1794.]
Engraving. 360 x 510mm, 14 x 20". Trimmed to plate at top, large margins on 3 sides..
A view of the exterior of the Temple of Apollo, Corinth, published in the 'Antiquities of Athens and Other Monuments of Greece' by James 'Athenian' Stuart & Nicholas Revett. Stuart (1713–88) and Revett (1720–1804) joined Gavin Hamillton and Matthew Brettingham on a Grand Tour of Italy, the Balkans & Greece between 1748-55. On their return they started work on the 'Antiquities', which was the first accurate survey of the surviving classical buildings of Athens, with the first volume published in 1762, the second 1789, third 1794, fourth 1816 and fifth 1830 (nearly 80 years after the first). The work was incredibly influential, fueling the Greek revivalist style in 18th-century English architecture. The attention to detail was such that it attracted the attention of Hogarth, who satirised the work with his 'Five Orders of Periwig'.
Stuart's gouache of the temple is in the Victoria and Albert Museum, RIBA Library Drawings Collection, SD146/2.

Map of the Greek island of Delos, published in the 'Antiquities of Athens and Other Monuments of Greece' by James 'Athenian' Stuart & Nicholas Revett. Delos had been the meeting place of the Delian League, a defensive group of Greek city states founded in 477BC but eventually overwhelmed and turned into the Athenian Empire by 454BC. Stuart (1713–88) and Revett (1720–1804) joined Gavin Hamillton and Matthew Brettingham on a Grand Tour of Italy, the Balkans & Greece between 1748-55. On their return they started work on the 'Antiquities', which was the first accurate survey of the surviving classical buildings of Athens, with the first volume published in 1762, the second 1789, third 1794, fourth 1816 and fifth 1830 (nearly 80 years after the first). The work was incredibly influential, fueling the Greek revivalist style in 18th-century English architecture. The attention to detail was such that it attracted the attention of Hogarth, who satirised the work with his 'Five Orders of Periwig'. This map was published in Volume 4; the general map of Attica in the same volume was signed by Arrowsmith. The hatchuring of elevated regions has been aquatinted, an uncommon usage.
