The First Plate of the Regalia.
The First Plate of the Regalia.
W Sherwin sc [1687]
Engraving, sheet 445 x 505mm (17½ x 19¾").
Regalia used in the coronation of James II in 1685, including clothing, swords, anointing spoon and 'King Edwards Chair in which his Majestie was Crown'd' Illustration to Francis Sandford, 'The history of the coronation of the Most High, Most Mighty, and Most Excellent Monarch, James II, by the grace of God, King of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith, &c. And of his royal consort, Queen Mary' (London, 1687). Sandford worked for two years with his fellow herald Gregory King to produce this record of the coronation rituals, which included twenty-seven lavish engravings of the sumptuous feasts, processions and fireworks in a style previously unseen in the British Isles. Unfortunately for Sandford, the book appeared shortly before the Glorious Revolution which saw James II flee the country, and the authors barely cleared their expenses.

Etching, rare; sheet 170 x 130mm (6¾ x 5"). Tipped into album sheet with small portrait.
The Independent Minister Hugh Peters (bap.1598-d.1660) introduces the four Dutch ambassadors Paulus van der Perre, Willem Nieupoort, Allard Peter Jongstall, and Hieronymus Berverningk to Secretary of State John Thurloe (bap.1616-d.1668). Beverningk presents a petition for peace during the First Anglo-Dutch War (1652-4). Thurloe was secretary of state from 1652-8 and his intelligence work both at home and abroad were crucial for the protectoral regime. He took part in negotiations with the Dutch ambassadors in autumn 1653 and thereafter he was the protectoral council's conduit to Nieupoort, the resident ambassador, and he was part of the negotiating team for the maritime treaty. Frontispiece to Henry Stubbe, 'A Further Justification of the Present War against the United Netherlands' (1673), published during the third Anglo-Dutch war (1672-4).
For a portrait of Thurloe see ref. 24244.
