Lord Byron.
Lord Byron. Proof.
Painted by T. Phillips, engraved by S. W. Reynolds.
Pub.d by T. Phillips, Feb.y 1822.
Fine mezzotint. 230 x 165mm (9 x 6½"), with wide margins.
George Gordon Noel Byron (1788-1824), a British poet and a leading figure in the Romantic movement. He was celebrated in life for aristocratic excesses including huge debts, numerous love affairs, rumours of a scandalous incestuous liaison with his half-sister, and self-imposed exile. He travelled to fight against the Ottoman Empire in the Greek War of Independence, for which Greeks revere him as a national hero. He died at 36 years old from a fever contracted while in Missolonghi, Greece. Engraved from the portrait by Thomas Phillips, which was undertaken as part of a commission by the publisher William Miller to paint the portraits of several poets whose works he published, the intention being to hang them together at Miller's house at 50 Albemarle Street, London. Annette Peach writes of the commission: "In 1813 Murray commissioned from Phillips a portrait of Byron (who brought the publisher more commercial success than any other of his writers), which still hangs over the drawing-room fireplace in Albemarle Street. The half-length view famously shows a pale-complexioned Byron in a white shirt with a large turned-down ‘Byronic’ collar open at the neck to reveal his throat, and wrapped in a dark cloak. The dress and pose are identical to that of Charles Mayne Young in his portrait by G. H. Harlow (1809; Garrick Club, London), where the actor is portrayed as Hamlet, and it is possible that Byron saw Young perform this role. As in his portrait of Blake, Phillips's ability to convey the Romantic (and here self-dramatizing) cast of his sitter's imagination indicates that, although his œuvre is less flamboyant than that of his contemporary Sir Thomas Lawrence, he, too, was quintessentially a Romantic painter." One of several engravings made from Phillips' portrait.

[n.d., c.1829.]
Scarce mezzotint. Sheet 560 x 740mm (22 x 29"). Trimmed within plate on three sides. Few minor repairs. Repaired tear top centre.
David Garrick lounging in a chair, arm raised to an informal audience. Behind the actor is the winged figure of Fame. According to a key in G. Daniel's "A Biographical and Critical Analysis of a Picture' (published in 1829, probably to coincide with the publication of this print), the audience consists of other English actors and Garrick's family, with William Hogarth at the front, back to the audience, head turned, gesturing at Garrick. These attributions were made by the owner of the painting and publisher of the print, James Webb Southgate, who, as an auctioneer and art dealer, had a vested interest in improving the attribution. The BM now attributes the painting to Pietro Longhi (1701-85) and describes the scene as Garrick in a Venetian salon in front of the Duke of Parma; The Lady Lever Art Gallery, where the painting currently resides, titles it merely 'A Poet Declaiming His Verses', despite the masks of comedy and tragedy under the seat suggesting a more theatrical theme.

Portrait of Mohammed ben Hadou, ambassador to Charles II from the court of Moulay Ismail Ben Sharif, in England 1681-2, negotiating a treaty at a time that English-occupied Tangier (a dowry gift from Portugal to Charles II) was under siege by the Moroccans. John Evelyn wrote that he had an English mother and to be 'a handsome person, well featured and of a wise look, subtile and extremely civile'. He was also said to have married an English servant during his stay. The treaty that he negotiated was never ratified. In 1684 the English forces left Tangier, having destroyed the fortifications. This seated portrait was painted by Susannah-Penelope Rosse (1652-1700), daughter of Richard Gibson and close friend of Samuel Cooper. Another painting shows ben Hadou riding in Hyde Park in full Ottoman attire.

John Pounds, late of St Mary Street Portsmouth.
John Pounds, late of St Mary Street Portsmouth. who while making an honest substance by Mending Shoes was also School-Master, Gratuitouslyly, to some hundreds of the Childeren of his poor Neighbours. Born 17 June 1766 _ Died 1 January 1839, Aged 72.
Drawn on Stone by W. Mitchell, from the Original Painting by H.S. Sheaf, in the possession of E. Carter Esq.r.
Printed & Published by W.H. Charpentier, Artists' Repository 50, High Street, Portsmouth. [n.d., 1839.]
Fine & rare coloured lithograph. Sheet 435 x 315mm (17 x 12½"). Trimmed to image. Some distortion and toning to the page.
Apprenticed as a shipwright in the Portsmouth dockyard, Pounds was still a teenager when he fell into a dry dock, leaving him with permanent, crippling injuries. He became a cobbler, but while he worked he would give the poor and homeless children the basics of education. He would entice them in with hot baked potatoes, sometimes having as many as 40 children in his fourteen by eighteen feet workshop, as illustrated here. Thomas Guthrie (often credited with the creation of Ragged Schools) wrote his 'Plea for Ragged Schools' in 1847, proclaiming John Pounds as the originator of the idea. The 'Gentleman's Magazine' obituary of Pounds was published in February 1840, in which this print was described.
