F. Bartolozzi R.A. fecit
London Published as the Act directs Nov.12 1791
Stipple printed in brown, sheet 180 x 130mm (5 x 7"). Trimmed to platemark. Rare.
Christoph Friedrich von Ammon (1877-1850), German theological writer and preacher. Engraved by Francesco Bartlozzi (1725-1815), Florentine engraver elected a founding member of the Royal Academy in 1768 (the RA did not admit engravers at this time but made an exception in his case). He was already hailed as the best engraver in Italy when he met George III's librarian Richard Dalton in 1763. Dalton invited 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. This portrait was published after Bartolozzi had left England for the continent.

[Three banditti on horseback menacing a crouching figure.]
[Anon., c.1810.]
Pen lithograph, scarce; sheet 270 x 340mm (10½ x 13½"). Staining and mould to edges.
Dramatic early pen lithograph. The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing them to make prints which arguably resembled drawings more than any earlier printmaking technique. Unlike many printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography.

William Buchan (1729-1805), physician and author. His 'Domestic Medicine, or the Family Physician' was published in 1769, and rapidly sold out of its first edition of 5000 copies.

[anon., c.1790]
Etching with large margins, platemark 140 x 180mm (5½ x 7"). Folds, rust spot lower right.
Satire on the infamous Count Alessandro di Cagliostro (1743-95), adventurer, freemason, charlatan, radical politician and occultist. Cagliostro sits at ease while numerous figures around him sleep or vomit. Cagliostro's life is shrouded in mystery but involved forging and swindling of various kinds (and alleged involvement in the 'Affair of the Diamond Necklace' in which Marie Antoinette was thought to have defrauded the crown jewellers of the cost of an expensive necklace). He travelled around Europe, including time spent in London, and died in prison in Rome after he had been sentenced to life for being a Freemason. The error-strewn French and style of this print suggests it may have been made in Italy. Since his death, Cagliostro has been of tremendous cultural interest. He has been the subject of literary works by Goethe and Tolstoy amongst others.

Henry Hare, second Baron Coleraine (bap. 1636-d.1708), antiquary and architect. Coleraine traveled in Italy and translated G.F. Loredano's 'The Ascents of the Soul'.

[Two horses pulling large log.]
[Two horses pulling large log.]
[Anon., c.1807]
Pen lithograph, sheet 215 x 305mm (8½ x 12"). Creasing, trimmed.
Early pen lithograph. The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing them to make prints which arguably resembled drawings more than any earlier printmaking technique. Unlike many printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography.

[Theriac vendor] Au grand Magazin de Tériaque / Les voilà donc surpris mais cet air patelin / Trouvera des nigauds qui si laisseront prendre [...]
[Anon., published 8 March 1761? (date on poster in image)]
Etching with small margins, rare, platemark 125 x 160mm (5 x 6¼").
Anti-jesuit satire, whose subject is made explicit by a notice on the wall which forbids jesuits from any commercial activities. Theriac was a medical concoction formulated by the Greeks in the first century AD and sold up until the 19th century. Here the medicine, sometimes sold by jesuit traders, is seen as a quack treatment, as the text below explains, saying that if France welcomes the jesuits, they will deceive those who trusted in them. This print is probably a copy of a more skilfully-etched version, copies of which are in the BNF and Waddesdon.
