Nero
Nero From the Life
B.E. Duppa Esq.r Del.t R. Roe fec.t [c.1850]
Lithograph, rare, printed area 195 x 180mm (7¾ x 7").
Head of a lion named Nero. This is presumably the same lion which the menagerie owner George Wombwell (1777-1850) attempted to make fight against a pack of dogs in Warwick in 1825. In a notorious event which provoked public outcry, Wombwell sold tickets (prices varied), but Nero took no notice of the dogs and so was replaced by another lion, Wallace. When the dogs were introduced into the cage with Wallace, two at a time, they were immediately destroyed. Lithograph after portrait painter Bryan Edward Duppa (1804-1866).

[William Shakespeare.]
[Martin Droeshout.]
[n.d., c.1623-1685]
Engraving. Sheet: 155 x 185mm (6 x 7¼") Trimmed, laid on an album sheet. Some damage on left and paper tone.
A portrait of poet and playwright William Shakespeare (1564-1616) by Martin Droeshout. The portrait served as frontis piece to the Shakespeare folios the first published in 1623, the Second in 1632, the Third in 1663 and the Fourth in 1685. This is the third state of the portrait so could have been used in any of the 1623, 1632 or 1663 editions; the portrait was re-engraved for the 1685 edition. The portrait was praised by Ben Jonson for its likeness to Shakespeare in his poem which faced the portrait and served as preface to the Folios.
