R. De Hooghe, Amsterdam, n.d. 1675.]
Etching, 180 x 300mm (7 x 11¾"). Vertical fold (as normal).
The future King William III (1650 - 1702) behind a table in an interior of room, surrounded by officials, taking oath as the new Captain-General of the Dutch States Army, beneath a royal coat of arms. In view of the threat of an Anglo-French attack, the States of Gelderland wanted William to be appointed Captain-General as soon as possible, despite his youth and inexperience. On 15 December 1671 the States of Utrecht made this their official policy. On 19 January 1672 the States of Holland made a counterproposal: to appoint William for just a single campaign. The prince refused this and on 25 February a compromise was reached: an appointment by the States-General of the Netherlands for one summer, followed by a permanent appointment on his twenty-second birthday. Maurice of Nassau received the title of "Captain General of the Union" and "Admiral General" in 1587, which became hereditary - like the Stadtholder title, to the Orange-Nassau family, until taken away by the States General in 1786. The relationship between this print and an almost identical composition of a similar date (with different background) by Bernard Picart (item 16697, showing William taking the oath as stadtholder) is unclear; the one presumably copied and adapted from the other.

Mezzotint. Plate 229 x 178mm. 9 x 7". Very small margins as would be the norm.
Portrait of Cornelis de Witt, bust in an oval frame directed to left, looking towards the viewer, with shoulder-length curling hair, moustache and a stiff, embroidered collar, swathed in a dark cloak. Cornelis de Witt (1623-1672) was a prominent Dutch politician during the Stadtholderless Period of 1650-1672. He represented the States General in the field and in 1667 he accompanied the fleet that attacked the English naval base at Chatham. In the summer of 1672 he came under suspicion of conspiring against Prince William III, but despite the lack of evidence and the absence of a confession under torture, he was condemned to exile for life. On the day of his release from prison, an angry mob dragged him outside, with his brother, and killed them. Captain William Baillie (1723-1810) was a well-known amateur engraver and etcher from Ireland. He fought at the Battle of Culloden and served in various campaigns on the continent. retiring early to hold an appointment of Commissioner of Stamps. He executed over one hundred plates, 113 of which are contained in Boydell's collective edition of 1792; the most admired are those made from Rembrandt's etchings. Nearly all of Baillie's prints were collected, mostly in the collection of the Earl of Bute, and issued by Boydell in 1792 and re-issued in 1803.
