Lithograph. Printed area 390 x 270mm (15½ x 10½"). Margins with wear and tears.
A ghost-like Jesus appearing to the Apostles in an ornate room. After an engraving by Grégoire Huret (1606-70). Adam Friedel (1780- death date unknown) was a Danish artist, printmaker and publisher who, after serving in the Napoleonic wars, voluntarily joined the Greek army at the start of the Greek War of Independence, fashioning himself as Danish nobility. He was exposed by a real noble who proved his backstory to be a lie. After spending a year in Egypt he took refuge in London in 1824 where he opened a lithographer's shop. Between 1825 and 1826 Friedel printed and published, both in Paris and London, twenty-four lithographs with portraits of politicians and prominent military figures of the Greek War of Independence. He had drawn the portraits himself, in most cases from nature, while J. Bouvier coloured and lithographed these images. The series was a success and he was awarded for his contributions to the Greek Struggle for Independence with two decorations. For health reasons he travelled around a lot. He travelled to Smyrna and taught at a Greek school. He stayed at the Ottoman Capital during the Crimean War and painted several portraits of various politicians. In 1865 he asked for a pension for his services to Greece however little is known about what happened to him after that and his place and date of death is unknown.

[Publish'd by J. Wesson Litchfield Street Soho.] [n.d. c.1760.]
Mezzotint. 354 x 254mm (14 x 10"), on watermarked paper. Thread margins.
Portrait of James Harrington (1611-1677), political theorist and philosopher, head and shoulders in an oval wearing a lace collar and hair in long ringlets, after on an oil in the National Portrait Gallery dated c.1635. Despite being a Parliamentarian Harrington has a close association with Charles I, becoming a gentleman groom of the royal bedchamber in 1647, a role he played at both Hurst Castle and Carisbrooke. Parliament hasd him removed in 1649 for refusing to spy on the king. After Charles's execution Harrington started work on 'The Commonwealth of Oceana', a composition of Utopian political philosophy, a metaphor for interregnum England, with its beneficent lawgiver Olphaus Megaletor representing Oliver Cromwell. Despite this, the first edition (1656) was seized at the printers on the orders of Cromwell; Harrington appealed to Elizabeth Claypole, Cromwell's favourite daughter, and it was eventually issued with a new dedication to the Lord Protector.

Schidone Pinx.t.
London, Printed & Published by A. Friedel, 252, Tottenham C.t Road. [n.d., c.1836.]
Rare lithograph. Printed area 255 x 185mm (10 x 7¼") very large margins.
A young girl with a hornbook (a primer for study, a sheet of horn with a handle), a boy looking over her shoulder. Adam Friedel (1780- death date unknown) was a Danish artist, printmaker and publisher who, after serving in the Napoleonic wars, voluntarily joined the Greek army at the start of the Greek War of Independence, fashioning himself as Danish nobility. He was exposed by a real noble who proved his backstory to be a lie. After spending a year in Egypt he took refuge in London in 1824 where he opened a lithographer's shop. Between 1825 and 1826 Friedel printed and published, both in Paris and London, twenty-four lithographs with portraits of politicians and prominent military figures of the Greek War of Independence. He had drawn the portraits himself, in most cases from nature, while J. Bouvier coloured and lithographed these images. The series was a success and he was awarded for his contributions to the Greek Struggle for Independence with two decorations. For health reasons he travelled around a lot. He travelled to Smyrna and taught at a Greek school. He stayed at the Ottoman Capital during the Crimean War and painted several portraits of various politicians. In 1865 he asked for a pension for his services to Greece however little is known about what happened to him after that and his place and date of death is unknown.
