[London: R. Reynolds, 1669.]
Rare engraving. Sheet 110 x 80mm (4¼ x 3¼"). Trimmed to image, notch in bottom edge.
Portrait of George Alsop, the frontispiece of his ''An Orthodox Plea for the Sanctuary of God, Common Service, and White Robe of the House''. This was a polemic in support of church worship. While he does not mention any nonconformist sects by name, he condemns 'wretches' who claim to have 'a quickening spirit within them that informs them of all things', apparently a reference to the Quaker 'inner light'. Alsop was ordained deacon by Henry King, Bishop of Chichester c.1666, then priest in 1669.

Very early West Australiana item. The 'Original' and 'Duplicate Original' of a land ownership contract, relating to the new settlement of Australind in Western Australia, the third part, the 'Counterpart', was retained by the company. The colony was set up with the intention of breeding horses for the army in India (thus the name Austral-Ind), and plots were sold to investors and prospective settlers in London and elsewhere. By 1841 there were 440 settlers but that year Methodist minister Rev. John Smithies wrote to the Wesleyan Missionary Society in London, ''If any of your friends are thinking of Austral-Ind as a point of emigration tell them to Stop. It is one of the greatest puffs that there has been for some time. I should be sorry if any of our Methodist friends or others should be so deluded as to embark for such a place''. Poor soil, summer droughts and winter deluges meant that by 1875 the settlement was abandoned.

Magnificent prospect of the battle at Chalmette Plantation, Louisiana, on January 8th 1815, the largest engagement of the Battle of New Orleans, a prolonged battle between the United Kingdom and United States which took place from December 23rd, 1814, to January 26th, 1815. American forces, commanded by General Andrew Jackson, defeated an invading British Army intent on seizing New Orleans and the vast territory America had acquired with the Louisiana Purchase. The Treaty of Ghent had been signed on December 24th, 1814, but news of the peace would not reach the combatants until February. The battle is often regarded as the greatest American land victory of the Anglo-American War of 1812 to 1815, called the 'War of 1812'. At the end of that January day, the British had 2,042 casualties: 291 killed (including Generals Pakenham and Gibbs), 1,267 wounded (including General Keane) and 484 captured or missing. The Americans had 71 casualties: 13 dead; 39 wounded and 19 missing. Seal of the United States between English and French titles. Print made by Philibert Louis Debucourt (1755 - 1832), after the painting by Jean-Hyacinthe Laclotte, composed from his first-hand sketches of the battle. Laclotte was an architect, artist and engineer born in Bordeaux. He worked in New Orleans from 1806 until 1815, where he designed the Orleans Theater and planned the Faubourg Plaisance subdivision of the city. In 1810, he had formed a partnership with Arsene Latour and opened a school of drawing, architecture, carpentry and decorating. This print comes onto the market extremely rarely (usually hand coloured). Eight impressions are known in institutional collection: at the Library of Congress, New York Public Library, Amon Carter Museum, the New Orleans Historical Society, and four at the New York Historical Society.
