[Emmanuel Philibert, Duke of Savoy.]
[Innsbruck: D. Baur, 1603.]
Engraving with large margins. 425 x 295mm (16¾ x 7¾").
Emmanuel Philibert (1528-80), Duke of Savoy from 1553 until his death. At the time his duchy was occupied by the French so he entered the service of his cousin Philip II of Spain, becoming Governor of the Netherlands (1555-59). In 1557 he led the Spanish invasion of France: in the peace talks of 1559 Savoy was returned to him and he married the daughter of the King of France. In 1580 he was a claimant to the throne of Portugal, but lost out to Philip. He moved his capital from Chambéry to Turin, where he died and was buried in the Chapel of the Holy Shroud in Turin Cathedral. He is shown in armour within an alcove with superb architectural details, a strap-work cartouche for a title left blank. On the reverse is a German-text biography relating to another portrait, within an ornate woodcut frame. Published in Jacob Schrenck von Notzing's 'Der aller Durchleuchtigisten und Grossmächtigen Kayser, Durchleuchtigisten unnd Großmächtigen Königen'.

Willemin del.t et sculp.t Pérée Sculp.t
[n.d. c.1839.]
Mixed-method, coloured; paper watermarked. Plate 317 x 210mm. 12½ x 8¼". Six worm holes.
Louise of Savoy (1476-1531) the Duchess regnant of Auvergne and Bourbon, Duchess of Nemours and the mother of King Francis I of France. She was politically active and served as the Regent of France in 1515, in 1525-1526 and again in 1529. From "Monuments français inédits pour servir à l'histoire des arts depuis le Vie siècle jusqu'au commencement du XVIIe". Willemin's ambition was to present a parallel of antique and French art and design, but this proved an impossible task, and Willemin, perhaps spurred on by the revival of interest in medieval art across the Channel, decided to devote the latter half of his career to the production of the present volumes, chronicling the best examples of French design of the mediaeval and early renaissance period by examples taken from buildings, works of art, books and manuscripts. Willemin started work on it in 1806 (the engraved title leaf to the first volume bears this date), but he died in 1833 before the plates were quite finished, and it was left to his daughter to arrange for the engravings of the last of the plates and to commission an explanatory text from André Pottier. Willemin was the first to provide such accurate illustrations of French mediaeval decorative art and his plates had considerable influence in forming contemporary taste. It may be noted that he was a personal friend of Augustus Pugin senior, who allowed objects from his personal collection of mediaeval antiquities to be illustrated on one of the plates, and that the frontispiece to the younger Pugin's True Principles was evidently adapted from Willemin's illustration of King René of Anjou in his study.

Contadina della Savoja.
H.W.Bunbury delin. J.Bretherton. f.
Publish'd as the Act dircts April 30th 1772 by J.Bretherton No.134 New Bond Street.
Etching, 265 x 180mm (10½ x 7"). Trimmed to platemark; light foxing; crease through top of image; glued to backing sheet.
A country woman from Savoy, stood on a mountain-top in regional costume with a child and dog. One of a series of costume prints. Etched after Henry Bunbury, an amateur printmaker who subsequently enjoyed a successful career as a designer for printsellers. 'Prints by Bunbury an his imitators were conspicuously 'polite' and appealed, like novels, 'To the Fashionable World and Polite circles'. Of good family, amply endowed with social skills, a beautiful wife and connections in high society, Bunbury's appeal was not solely aesthetic' and his admirers 'recognized his comic talent, his informed enthusiasm for literature, and his ability to draw a momentary pang with something of the sensitivity with which Sterne could write it' (Clayton).
