Bartolozzi was born in Florence but migrated to England, and in 1768 was elected as a founding member of the Royal Academy in London (the RA did not admit engravers at this time but made an exception in his case, getting around the rules by electing Bartolozzi as a painter). He was already hailed as the best engraver in Italy when he met George III's librarian Richard Dalton in 1763. Dalton enticed Bartolozzi to London with a promise of an appointment as engraver to the king. In England he became the most celebrated exponent of the 'stipple' technique whereby he produced prints using dots rather than lines. In 1801 Bartolozzi was invited to Lisbon to reform the royal printing press, and he spent his final years in Portugal.

[Jodocus Hondius and George Vertue, c.1733, but 19th century impression.]
Engraving, platemark 400 x 315mm (15¾ x 12½"), with large margins.
Sir Francis Drake (1540-1596) the most famous of all English seafarers, large globe in left background. This print has an interesting history: the plate was started during Drake's lifetime, hence the date of 1580 on the print (the artist is widely believed to be Jodocus Hondius although Remigius Hogenburg has also been suggested). The plate was left unfinished (an example of the print in its unfinished state is in the British Museum, registration no. O,8.86) until in the 18th century the printmaker and antiquary George Vertue purchased the plate from Drake's descendants and completed it. Drake earned his fame and fortune through his skilful seamanship and outstandindingly successful piracy. His circumnavigation of the globe from 1577-81 involved a number of very profitable raids on Spanish ships and ports. His increasingly frequent and serious attacks during the 1580s were an important factor contributing to Philip II's decision to launch the Armada against English in 1588. Drake served as vice-admiral of the English fleet which defeated the Armada.

He represented New Woodstock in the parliaments of 1774 and 1780, and Heytesbury in those of 1784 and 1790. In 1776 he became a commissioner on the Board of Trade and Plantations. In 1778 he carried an Act for the improvement of the treatment of prisoners, and accompanied the earl of Carlisle as a commissioner to North America on an unsuccessful mission to settle certain disputes with certain colonists there. On his return in 1779 he published his widely-read Four Letters to the Earl of Carlisle, and in 1780 became Chief Secretary for Ireland. He gained election to the Irish House of Commons as the member for Dungannon and became a member of the Irish Privy Council. While in Ireland he established the National Bank. In 1840 Gov. Hobson selected and named the site of Auckland after him, now the capital of New Zealand. For a short period it was called Bishop's Auckland.

He then took his crust of bread out of his wallet again, as if to eat it; held it some time in his hand,--then laid it upon the bit of his ass's bridle,--looked wistfully at the little arrangement he had made--and then gave a sigh."
