A shipwreck off a rocky coastline with a keep. Engraved by Richard Earlom (1743 - 1822) after a sketch in the copy of Claude le Lorrain's 'Liber Veritatis' owned by the Duke of Devonshire at Chatsworth. Claude (c.1600-82) was a prolific and successful landscape painter, and, even during his lifetime, forgeries of his work appeared for sale. To combat this Claude made up six albums of tinted sketches of his completed works, each sketch with the name of the purchaser of the painting on the back. The 'Liber Veritatis' (Book of Truth) was then distributed around Europe so that his genuine paintings could be authenticated. The Chatsworth copy of the 'Liber Veritatis' contained 200 drawings, including a frontispiece portrait of Claude and five unrelated drawings. Commissioned by John Boydell, Richard Earlom engraved the full set between 1774 and 1777, when they were published by Boydell in two volumes, each containing 100 prints, numbered 1-200. A third volume of 100 prints was published by Boydell in 1819, which was numbered separately, containing mezzotints by Earlom after other drawings by Claude in various collections.

Claude fecit Roma 1676 [in image lower left]. R. Earlom sculpt.
Pub. Jan. 20 1802 by J. & J. Boydell, No 90, Cheapside &c at the Shakespeare Gallery, Pall Mall.
Etching, platemark 270 x 360mm (10½ x 14¼"). Large margins. State before mezzotinting.
Etching by Richard Earlom (1743 - 1822) after a sketch in the copy of Claude le Lorrain's 'Liber Veritatis' owned by the Duke of Devonshire at Chatsworth. Claude (c.1600-82) was a prolific and successful landscape painter, and, even during his lifetime, forgeries of his work appeared for sale. To combat this Claude made up six albums of tinted sketches of his completed works, each sketch with the name of the purchaser of the painting on the back. The 'Liber Veritatis' (Book of Truth) was then distributed around Europe so that his genuine paintings could be authenticated. The Chatsworth copy of the 'Liber Veritatis' contained 200 drawings, including a frontispiece portrait of Claude and five unrelated drawings. Commissioned by John Boydell, Earlom engraved the full set between 1774 and 1777, when they were published by Boydell in two volumes, each containing 100 prints, numbered 1-200. A third volume of 100 prints was published by Boydell in 1819, which was numbered separately, containing mezzotints by Earlom after other drawings by Claude in various collections.

Cyrus, the greatest King of Persia, was abandoned as a baby in the wilderness due to a prophecy that frightened his grandfather. Woodland scene with a naked young boy lying on a cloth in the foreground, guarded by dogs; to right, a herdsman and a woman, presumably Mithridates and his wife Cyno, surprised at the sight; to left, a curved stone frieze of soldiers, surmounted by a crown and a naked child holding up a shield; to right, a boy looking on from behind Mithridates' sheep; fields and cattle in the background at centre. 'The Houghton Gallery', a set of 162 prints reproducing paintings from the collection of Sir Robert Walpole at Houghton. The project was initiated by John Boydell after it had become increasingly likely that the collection formed by Robert Walpole at Hougthon would have to be sold (the paintings were eventually sold to Catherine of Russia in 1778 and are now part of the Hermitage's collections). The plates were published from 1774 to 1788, when they were gathered in two volumes (first volume of 62 plates, with 60 numbered plates, a frontispiece and a title-page; second volume of 71 plates, with 69 numbered plates, a frontispiece and a title-page).

This third volume, also by Earlom, contained 100 plates of paintings in other collections. Engraving the plates of this additional volume began in January 1802 and the completed book was published 1819.
