Saint Gregory I the Great or Pope Saint Gregory I (c. 540 Ė 604) was pope from September 3, 590 until his death. This illustrates the circumstances of his famous quote 'Non Angli, sed Angeli' ('They are not Angles, but Angels') when he first encountered blue-eyed, blond-haired English boys at a slave market. The incident is said by Bede to have led to his dispatching of St. Augustine of Canterbury to England to convert the English. A fantastic example of colour printing.

[Oriental man reading a large book]
[Oriental man reading a large book]
[by Henry Singleton, 1803]
Pen lithograph, sheet 225 x 315mm (8¾ x 12½"). Very damaged; losses.
Early lithograph by Henry Singleton (1766-1839), painter. A professional portrait painter from the age of sixteen, Singleton was commissioned by Benjamin West to paint a large group portrait of the Royal Academicians in 1796, but Singleton never became an academician himself. He was known for his history paintings initially, but later moved into decorative and pastoral subject matter, often designed with a view to engraving. This print, a rare excursion into printmaking for Singleton, was included in the 1806 edition of the first portfolio of artists' lithographs, 'Specimens of Polyauthography'. The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing artists 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.

Sir Edward Vernon, commanded the fleet that took Pondicherry in 1778. Subsequently he was promoted to rear-admiral in 1779 and returned to England early in 1781. He saw no more active service, but was made a vice-admiral in 1787 and admiral in 1794, only to die a few weeks later. In 1785 he made a couple of balloon ascents from Tottenham Court Road, one reaching Horsham, the other Colchester. He was only a distant relative of his more famous namesake. Apparently Vernon's own copy of this full-length portrait.

[n.d., c.1813.]
Pair of stipple engravings with etching and aquatint, each 592 x 482mm. Crease through upper right corner of first image.
Two contrasting images, the first showing a contented young woman holding up a lamp in both hands, with four others standing in a row behind her to right, in a palace interior with musicians playing in the background. In the second, a woman listlessly holds an empty lamp and stands disconsolately with others, one holding a veil to her head in despair. The Parable of the Ten Virgins is a parable told by Jesus in the gospel of Matthew. In it, the five virgins who are prepared for the bridegroom's arrival are rewarded and the five who are not prepared are excluded. The parable has a clear apocalyptic theme: be prepared for the day of reckoning. On paper watermarked 1813.
