Engraving, 17th century watermark, scarce. Sheet 375 x 275mm (14¾ x 11¾"). Trimmed to plate, wear in corners with loss. Edges tatty, damaged.
The family tree of James VI and I, with portraits of his ancestors back to Henry VII, designed to show his claim to the English throne but also celebrating the uniting of the Houses of York and Lancaster. The arms of the two rival families fill the bottom corners. The plate was first published by Hans Woutnell in 1603. The engraver was Benjamin Wright (fl. 1596-1613), a Londoner who seems to have spent much of his career abroad. He usually engraved maps, for example for the Langenes 'Caert-Thrésor' and Antonio Magini's atlas of Italy (the country's first), but does not appear to be reliable: he is recorded as pawning the copper plate of the map of Genova he was working on.

Portrait of Josias van de Kapelle (1632-96), a minister in Noordwijk, Den Briel and Leiden. This print was originally in the Kupferstich-Kabinett of Dresden, one of the most important print collections in the world. Established c.1560 as the private collection of the Prince-electors of Saxony, it became an independent museum in 1720. Relocated during the Second World War (thus missing the bombing of Dresden), most of the collection was looted by Soviets; although the bulk was returned in the late 1950s, over 50,000 items are still missing. However this print had already left the collection, as one of the inkstamps reads 'Duplum veräussert' (double sold); there were two sales of duplicates, 1904 and 1920.

[Anthony Maddox.]
[Anthony Maddox.] To long, unjust to our own country's cause, / On foreigners we wasted our applause, / On home-bred merit seldom known to smile, / Nor praise the product of our Native Isle. / But now each artist from abroad must yield, / And Mahomet to Maddox quits the field, / Who's form'd alike t'astonish & to please, / And adds to matchless skill a gracefull ease, / The sweetly smiling fair in crowds appear, / And love that art, they used to view with fear.

Mezzotint. 355 x 250mm (14 x 9¾"). Small margins.
A three-quarter length portrait of the entertainer Anthony Maddox, wearing a rich suit with an emboidered waistcoat, holding a straw. Maddox was a successful slack-wire acrobat: his signature trick was standing on the wire and passing the straw from his foot to his mouth, accounting for its inclusion here. He drowned in 1758 when 'The Dublin Trader' was wrecked off the Scottish coast en route to Dublin, along with his travelling companion, actor Theophilus Cibber, and Edward, fifth Earl of Drogheda..

Mary Magdalen Washing Christ's Feet.

Rubens Pinxit. G Farington delin.t. Rich.d Earlom sculpsit.
John Boydell excudit 1777. Published Aug.st 1st 1777 by John Boydell Engraver in Cheapside London.
Mezzotint. 470 x 580mm (18½ x 22¾"). Small margins. Small tears.
Peter Paul Ruben's 'Feast in the House of Simon the Pharisee', painted in Flanders circa 1618-20, representing the conflict between the material values and religious dogmatism of the Pharisees world and the Christian doctrine of sympathy, charity and goodness. Here the repentant sinner washing Christ's feet with her tears is named as Mary Magdalene; however the Gospel of Luke leaves her nameless. At the time of this engraving the painting was part of the art collection of Sir Horace Walpole (1676-1745) at Houghton, Norfolk. Following his death part of the collection was sold to pay off debts, and by the 1770s it was inevitable the rest would suffer the same fate. Before it could be dispersed John Boydell commissioned a vast series of mezzotints of the collection, which was fortuitous: despite John Wilkes attempt to persuade Parliament to buy the collection for the nation 206 paintings were sold to Catherine the Great for £40,550 in 1779. 127 works from Houghton, including this one, are now in the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg.
