Guth 98 [engraved in image.]
Octr. 6th. 1898. Vincent Brooks, Day & Son Ltd. Lith.
Chromolithograph. 398 x 266mm. 15¾ x 10½".
Eugène Henri Brisson (1835-1912) was a French statesman, Prime Minister of France for a period in 1885 until 1886 and again in 1898. He was a member of the extreme Left, he did however propose amnesty for the condemned but it was voted down. He was also a prominent figure in exposing the Panama scandals. In June of 1898 he formed a cabinet when the country was violently excited over the Dreyfus affair. The Dreyfus affair was a political scandal that divided France in the 1890s and the early 1900s. It involved the conviction for treason of Captain Alfred Dreyfus (1859-1935), a French artillery officer of Alsatian Jewish descent, who was sentenced to life for allegedly having communicated French military secrets to the German Embassy in Paris.

A portrait of Don Fernando Girón and his commanders during the successful defence of the city during the English 'Cadiz Expedition' of 1625. The elderly Girón sits in a sedan chair with his deputy commander, Diego Ruiz, standing before him. Behind can be seen different moments in the siege, with the naval attacks and land battles, including the English being chased back to their boats. The 'Cadiz Expedition' was an ill-conceived attempt by the Duke of Buckingham to gain prestige by emulating the exploits of the Elizabethan adventurers. In the autumn of 1625 nearly 100 ships and a total of 15,000 men were sent to attack Cadiz under Sir Edward Cecil, a capable soldier, but completely inexperienced at sea. Having faced heavy storms on the way they missed their main objective, a treasure ship from the Americas; and when Cecil landed his troops he realised he didn't have the supplies to maintain them. The landed troops resorted to scavenging, and unfortunately found too many wine vats. When Cecil gave the inevitable order to withdraw over a thousand troops were left behind, so drunk that the counter-attacking Spanish could run them through where they lay (depicted by the building at the centre of the background). The expedition cost the English an estimated £250,000, and in 1626, when Parliament attempted to impeach Buckingham for the ineptitude of the planning, Charles I had to dissolve Parliament to protect his favourite. Although attributed here to Eugenio Caxés, the painting was painted by Francisco de Zurbarán in 1634 and is now in the Prado Museum. This lithograph is from the 'Colección lithographica de cuadros del rey de España el señor Fernando VII'.

Ukraine: A view of Caffa, built in the form of an amphiteatre. It has regained its ancient name of Theodosia since it has been possessed by the Russians. It was built by the Greeks in the fifth century, upon the ruins of Theodosia; the Genoese took it from the Tartars in 1226, and 71 years later the Venetians drove out the Genoese, who soon after got possession of it for the second time, and fortified it. In the year 1474, it feel into the hands of the Turks, when of course it lost both its trade and commerce, which had been considerable up until this time. In the year 1774, it was ceded by the Turks to Russia. From "Museum Worsleyanum; or a Collection of Antique Basso-Relievos, Bustos, Statues, and Gems' with Views of Places in the Levant.

[Naples, 1784.]
Engraving with original colour, margins with grey wash. 210 x 330mm (8½ x 13"). Very large margins.
A view of the town of Villanova, which was badly damaged by the Calabrian earthquakes of February and March 1793. Pompeo Schiantarelli (1746-1802/5), an architect, led a team from Neapolitan Academy of Science and Letters to record the devastation, which killed 35,000 people in the region. He also helped with the rebuilding efforts, planning two towns, Polistena and Mileto. Schianarellu published his account as 'Istoria de' fenomeni del tremoto avvenuto nelle Calabrie e nel Valdemone nell'anno 1783' (Account of the Effects of the Earthquake in Calabria in 1783). The plates are very similar in style to those in William Hamilton's study of volcanoes, 'Campi Phlegraei', 1776-9, also published in Naples.
