[Queen Anne presiding over the House of Lords in Session.] Het Hoog en Lager Huys van Engeland.
R. de Hooge fecit [in image].
[tot Amsterdam, by Pieter Rotterdam, Boekverkooper on de Vugaendam.]
Etching, sheet 450 x 580mm (17¾ x 22¾"). Trimmed, losing text and vignettes below image; vertical folds. Few very minor repairs. A rich impression.
Queen Anne (1665-1714) seated on throne at right, presiding over the Lords. Above two allegorical figures representing Plenty (with a cornucopia) and War (with a shield) hold a scroll showing Anne with Prince George of Denmark besides her presiding over the Commons. Second state (published c.1702) of a print first published in 1689, showing William III on the throne shortly after his coronation. It was subsequently reworked to fit the arrival of successive monarchs up to and including George II in 1727. Etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. De Hooghe's output as an artist was broad, however, and he had other talents and responsibilities: in 1689 he was placed in charge of obtaining building materials for the royal hunting lodge of Het Loo; the same year he became a Doctor of Law at Harderwijk University; he designed ceiling paintings for municipal buildings and church windows; and he wrote several political and historical treatises.

The signing of the Treaty of Breda, with the delegates in the conference chamber (centre), arrival and departure of the English delegation (top and bottom), and topographical scenes of Breda (left and right).

With the seas around the south coast of England essentially controlled by the Dutch admiral de Ruyter following the raid on the Medway in 1667, the English were eager to reach a swift agreement. By this treaty the lands of New Netherlands were ceded to the English producing the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania & Delaware.

[Portrait of Charles II, with three prints relating to his escape following the battle of Worcester]
[various printmakers, early eighteenth century]
Four etchings and engravings, various dimensions, tipped into album sheets.
Soon after the battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651, the fugitive Charles II met with the royalist army officer William Careless, and on 6 September they hid together in boughs of an oak tree to hide from pursuing Commonwealth forces. That night they retired to nearby Boscobel House, before Charles II made his way south disguised (unconvincingly) as a servant, narrowly avoiding capture several times before finally obtaining passage to the continent via Shoreham six weeks after the battle. This group of prints includes: a portrait of Charles II; an image of Charles II and Careless 'advising under the Royal Oak'; Charles II travelling in disguise with royalist army officer Henry Wilmot in attendance; and a bird's-eye view of Boscobel House, the Royal Oak, and the surrounding area.

[Coronation of Charles II, 1661]

Etching, sheet 360 x 465mm (14¼ x 18¼"). Trimmed to image; central fold as normal;
The coronation of Charles II at Westminster Abbey on 23 April 1661. Published in 'The entertainment of His most excellent Majestie Charles II...' (1662) by John Ogilby. Ogilby had obtained exclusive publishing rights for the coronation procession days before it took place, rushing out a simple and unillustrated text in time for the event, and over the next year worked on this sumptuous account with engravings by leading engravers including (as here) 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.

Engraving, sheet 215 x 150mm (9 x 6"). Trimmed; tipped into album sheet.
The second great seal of the Commonwealth, showing parliament in session, designed by medallist and seal-engraver Thomas Simon (bap.1618-d.1665). Illustration to a volume of engravings (1753) made after Simon's designs, engraved and published by George Vertue. Following the execution of Charles I, Simon was appointed chief engraver by the parliamentarians, and designed a seal within a week of the execution. This was supposedly not very hard-wearing, and in 1651 the Rump ordered its replacement, similar except for the new date (as shown here). Simon made many seals for public service during the interregnum, before being appointed to the office of one of gravers of the king's arms, shields and stamps at the restoration. Vertue was instructed by Parliament to produce this account of Simon's work, marking national recognition for his work at the mint.

Four etched and engraved sheets, dimensions 150 x 115mm (6 x 4½") to 315 x 200mm (12½ x 8"). All trimmed and tipped into album sheets.
The murders of the De Witt brothers, Cornelis (1623-72) and Jan (1625-72), shown in four panels (originally printed on one sheet). Etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. Jan de Witt opposed the appointment of William of Orange as stadtholder, and after the French invasion of the United Provinces in 1672 the people called for William and demonstrated against Jan. That same year Cornelis de Witt was suspected of treason and condemned to exile for life. As a result Jan resigned his position as councillor pensionary, but when he visited Cornelis in prison in the Hague, a mob gathered, dragged both brothers outside, and murdered them (as shown here). Offered with description of the events and double portrait of the brothers (probably not by de Hooghe).

Etching with letterpress, scarce; 320 x 210mm (12½ x 8¼"). Tipped into album sheet.
The murder of the Dutch scholar and diplomat Isaac Dorislaus (1595-1649), scholar and diplomat. Dorislaus was appointed to the counsel for the prosecution of Charles I in January 1649 and he helped draw up the charge of high treason against the king, arguing for the lawful deposition of tyrants who deprive subjects of their freedom and privileges. After the trial Dorislaus sought the position of keeper of the library of St James, but first agreed to undertake one last diplomatic mission to the Hague. The decision was fatal: on 2 May 1649 a group of royalists entered the inn in Scheveningen where Dorislaus was staying, and stabbed him to death.
