A portrait in an oval of French naval commander and privateer Jean Bart (1650 - 1702).

Philippe de Beaumanoir (c.1247-1296) was a French jurist and royal official. After his studies of law in Orleans, and possibly Bologna, he became bailiff of Clemont in the county of Beauvaisis, then senschal of Poitou and the Saintonge; he managed to hold some very senior positions in the realm. All of this administrative experience helped form the basis to his principal work: "Coustumes de Beauvoisis" of 1283, which was first printed in 1690. This work was later regarded as one of the best works bearing on old French customary law, and was often referred to with high admiration by Montesquieu, who called him "la lumiere de son temps".

[Andrew Geddes after Rubens]
Etching, platemark 230 x 170mm (9 x 6¾").
Nicolas Rockox (1560-1640), Burgomaster of Antwerp and patron of Rubens. He is remembered by the Museum Rockoxhuis in his former residence in the city. Copy after Rubens by the Scottish painter and etcher Andrew Geddes (1783-1844). The Oxford DNB states that 'as an etcher Geddes ranks higher than as a painter; his plates may be regarded as among the very earliest examples in modern British art of the brilliancy, concentration, and spirited selection of line proper to a ‘painter's-etching’'. This plate is one of ten he published in 1826.
