Book 3, Line 365. Proof. [The Courts of God]
Designed & Engraved by J. Martin Esq.r. Printed by Chatfield & Co.
London Published by Septimus Prowett, 23 Old Bond Street. 1825.
Rare proof mezzotint. 255 x 350mm (10 x 13¾"), with large margins. Small rust spot in lower right corner.
The Courts of God; A city, seen above an open court surrounded by colonnades, full of angels, with several in the foreground. Two are facing each other, playing harps. Fully lettered proof impression. From a series of prints illustrating John Milton's (1608-1674) 'Paradise Lost', first published in 1667, consisting of ten books with over ten thousand lines of verse. The poem concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man, the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Begun by early 1824, this series of engravings was the result of a comission from a little known American publisher Septimus Prowett, who approached Martin to produce mezzotint illustrations to accompany an issue of Milton's text. Prowett's publication was released in four different proof forms; this print is from the 'Imperial Folio Edition' but not bound up at publication time.

A Tigress.
A Tigress.
Engraved by John Murphy by Permission of Mr. George Stubbs from the Picture Painted by himself and in his Possession.
London, Published July 27, 1798 by J. Murphy, North side Paddington Green.
Coloured mezzotint. Sheet 490 x 610mm (19¼ x 24"). Trimmed to platemark. Very slight hole above tiger's head.
A very rare mezzotint, probably engraved from the life-size portrait of the Royal Tiger in Stubbs's possession when he died. The painting had originally been engraved by John Dixon in 1772; however that mezzotint plate had been destroyed, so John Murphy was allowed to engrave a new plate. A beautifully-coloured example of one of the finest images produced in the history of mezzotint.
