Martin de Vos Inventor. [engraved by Maarten Wierix.]
CJVißcher Excu. [n.d., 1652.]
Engraving with etching. 375 x 515mm, with contemporary red ruling. Creasing, margin worn lower left.
A fine fantastical image incorporating two scenes from the Book of Jonah. On the right Jonah is being thrown into the sea, where the sea monster, with ears and crest, waits; on the left he is regurgitated on the shore, the city of Nineveh behind. From a Dutch bible, 'Historiae Sacrae Veteris et Novi Testamenti'; the red ruling suggests it comes from the English edition, 'Figures of the Bible, in wich almost every history of the Holy Scriptures is discribed'.

Horse Combat in Lodoiska.
Pub. Nov. 1825 by W. Cole, Lit. Newport Street.
Coloured etching. Sheet 185 x 225mm (7½ x 8¾"). Trimmed into image, laid on album paper.
A scene from 'Lodoïska', an opera by Luigi Cherubini to a French libretto by Claude-François Fillette-Loraux, first performed in Paris in July 1791. A Polish huzzar crosses swords with a Tartar rider, before a castle. Surprisingly, the Tartar is one of the good guys: in the climax the castle's wall collapses and the Tartars storm in to rescue the hero and heroine from their wicked countryman.
