In the title area, two medallions depicting Holland and Switzerland as precursors of the American struggle in their own experiences of oppression. One (left) is inscribed "Auto da fe" and "Holland. 1560". It represents a man tied to the stake, while a monk, holding up a crucifix, holds a torch to the pile. On the right. is "Wilhelm Tell, Switzerland. 1296".

Between the medallions is part of an oak-tree. The medallion representing Holland is supported (left) by the Dutch lion holding in his paw a sheaf of seven arrows representing the United Provinces. Hercules with his club (right) supports the medallion of Switzerland. An adaptation, in reverse, of 'The Oracle' by John Dixon. Engraved and published in Nuremberg by Carl Gottlieb Guttenberg (1743 - 1790).

Scarce lithograph on chine collé. Sheet 170 x 130mm (6¾ x 5") very large margins.
A portrait of Jacques Beaulieu (or Baulot, 1651-1719), an itinerant lithotomist, a surgeon specialising in the removal of calculi like kidney and gall stones. After a short career as a cavalry private, he had a six-year apprenticeship with another travelling surgeon. He travelled around with four assistants, who prepared his patients with cupping and blood-letting, before operating on all of them on the same day, usually leaving as soon as possible to avoid repercussions. From 1690 he donned the robes of a Dominican monk and started calling himself frère, without ordination. In 1697, in a session at the Hôtel Dieu in Paris, he performed a lithotomy in less than a minute and 10 more in less than an hour, with a 53.5% mortality rate while the average at the time was 14%, resulting in a five-year ban from practicing in Paris. He performed around 5,000 lithotomies before retiring in 1711. Based on a life-time portrait.

Guillaume Marie-Anne Brune (1764-1815), 1st Count Brune. A political journalist, he joined the National Guard on the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789. In 1793 he was appointed brigadier general, serving under Napoleon in the Italian campaign of 1796. In 1798 he commanded the army that occupied Switzerland and established the Helvetis Republic. The following year, he successfully defended Amsterdam during the Anglo-Russian invasion of Holland, when this portrait was painted. After Waterloo he was shot and killed by an angry Royalist mob in Avignon and his body thrown into the Rhone, although it was later recovered by his family and given a proper burial. The artist, Charles Howard Hodges (1764-1837) was a pupil of John Raphael Smith. He moved to The Hague in 1794 and to Amsterdam in 1797, where this plate was published and where he spent the rest of his life.
