A Russian Dandy a scene at Aix la Chapelle.
A Russian Dandy a scene at Aix la Chapelle. Tis said that the Head of the Forces allied, Not having a Coat to his Back, A generous Monarch the needful supplied, And when thus equip'd they sat down side by side, To drink their Champaign & theire Sack, Now doubtless this Hero of wonderful note, Had the Monarch allowed him to choose, Would have barter'd his honor to sit in his Coat, For the Pleasure to stand in his Shoes.
Pub Dec 8th 1818 by S W Fores 50 Piccadilli & Oxford Street.
Hand coloured etching, 340 x 240mm (13¼ x 9½"), with large margins. Laid on paper. Mount burn. Time staining. Small crease in top margin. Taped tear bottom margin.
Scarce and good satire image showing the Congress of Aix-la-Chapelle, held in the autumn of 1818. It (incorrectly) suggests that the Tsar imposes his policy on Wellington, who attended the Conference as Commander-in-Chief of the allied forces, Castlereagh being the British plenipotentiary. Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington (1769-1852) stands left wearing a uniform and cocked hat with field-marshal's plume. He faces talking to Alexander I, Tsar of Russia (1777-1825). They both wear giant boots that reach the hips, and being wrinkled at the ankles suggest the trousers of the dandies. Wellington: "One may be allowed a Variety of Mistresses; but I have such a Variety of Masters, I shall not know which to serve first!!!" Alexander: "I think you will be a little Straiten'd in it." One of the Russians: "Our Master has put him in a strait coat now; it will be well if he does not get a Strait Waistcoat by & by."

Seleucus giving up his wife for his son: classic interior with prince Antiochus I Soter lying ill on a canopied bed at right, his father Seleucus I pointing in despair at the crown and sceptre on a table at centre, his father's wife Stratonice standing by, the doctor Eristratos seen standing behind. Antiochus I Soter (c. 324/3 261 BC) was struck down by a mysterious illness. Erasistratus (c. 304 c. 250 BC), Greek anatomist and royal physician under Seleucus I Nicator of Syria, realised that the illness of Antiochus was lovesickness for his stepmother Stratonice (c. 320 BC - 254 BC), by observing that Antiochus's pulse rate rises when ever he sees her. Seleucus I Nicator (c. 358 281 BC) gave up his young wife to save his son and in 294 BC Antiochus married his stepmother.

Behind, two men flirt with another woman whose profile is on the extreme left Above them flies the Royal Standard, however this design was changed in 1801 with the fleur-de-lis quartering abandoned.

[n.d. c.1800]
Rare lithograph, sheet 355 x 495mm (14 x 18½"), very large margins. Repaired tears in margins.
A Swedish print of the Skirmish at Bender (1 February 1713), with Charles XII of Sweden (1682 1718) in the middle of the action. After the defeat of the Swedish at the Battle of Poltava in 1709, Charles was far away from Sweden and he needed somewhere to go. The Ottoman Empire had disliked Russia since time immemorial so Charles XII received the hospitality of Sultan Ahmed III and fled to the town of Bender in the modern country of Moldova. Charles XII of Sweden overstayed his welcome by a few years; so the Ottoman forces, forced him out and after some fighting Charles XII and his fighters were captured. After some time as a prisoner, Charles XII and his soldiers were released when news about the Swedish victory in the Battle of Gadebusch reached the Ottomans.
