    Highly detailed and decorative copper-engraved city maps of six fortified cities comprising Bruges, Brussels, Lisle (Lille), Ghent, Mechlin (Mechelen) and Béthune.

    The maps are embellished with numbered tables of explanation indicating churches, monasteries, palaces, city gates & numerous markets, including those dedicated to corn, hogs, cheese, herbs, veal, milk, flax, & wood. The maps also depict roads, waterways, bridges, city walls & gates, & showing trees, boats on the waterways & houses in outline.

    These maps were published to illustrate Mr. Tindal's translation of Mr. Rapin's History of England, which was considered one of the few comprehensive histories written during the period. Tindal then wrote a three-volume 'Continuation', including the reigns of James II to George II. They were engraved by Isaac Basire.

    Isaac Basire (1704-68) was an renowned map engraver. He is often remembered for a great number of maps he engraved for Tindall's continuation of Rapin de Thoyras' History of England. He also contributed maps to the Gentleman's magazine. He was the first of his generation in a line of engravers, but was arguably the most successful.

    Paul de Rapin (25 March 1661[1] – 25 April 1725), sieur of Thoyras (and therefore styled Thoyras de Rapin), was a French historian writing under English patronage. His History of England, written and first published in French in 1724–27, was an influential exposition of the Whig view of history on both sides of the English Channel.

    Nicolas Tindal (1687-1774) was Rector of Alverstoke in Hampshire, Vicar of Great Waltham, Essex, Chaplain of Greenwich Hospital and a Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford. He translated Frenchman Paul de Rapin's History of England, one of the few comprehensive histories written at that time. Tindal then wrote a three-volume 'Continuation', including the reigns of James II to George II.

    A wonderfully detailed early Victorian antique folding map of London and its environs in vibrant original hand-colour with original slipcase as pictured.
    Published by G. F. Crutchley, 81 Fleet St London, 1st January 1841.

    The map spans the River Thames from Windsor to Gravesend incorporating all of modern day London including, to name but a few, Fulham and Chelsea, Hampstead, Richmond and The City of London. It clearly shows the great parks of London and is also annotated with fascinating historical references, such as the Millbank Prison at Pimlico designed by Jeremy Bentham as a Panopticon. Also shown are a number of central London farms still in use in the mid-19th century as the city expanded around them. Take a step back in time and let the mind's eye wander through a byegone age.
    English, published in 1841.

    18th century portrait of a lady in the typical dress of the early Georgian period; chemise, modesty piece, vee décolletage, criss-cross bodice, full sleeves and hair arranged in a long straight coiffure. There is evidence of a pentiment about the shoulders and there is loose, confident brushwork; especially in the drapery. The painting exudes the sparse elegance of the period; there is intelligence in the assertive gaze of the sitter.

    A large antique armorial hatchment, oil on canvas from the 18th century. Of diamond form, showing a crown under which is draped an ermine-edged robe set within which are a lion and dragon rampant holding a diamond panel embellished with heraldic motifs. Wear commensurate with age.
    English 18th century.

    Provenance: By repute "The arms on this hatchment are those of John Baker-Holroyd (1735-1821), 1st earl of Sheffield. The arms quarter Holroyd, Elwood and Baker, all impaling North." Holroyd entered the House of Commons in 1780, where he was prominent against Lord George Gordon and the rioters but he is chiefly remembered as the friend and literary executor of Edward Gibbon (author of The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire), whose memoirs and other works he edited and published. He was created a Peer of Ireland as Baron Sheffield in 1871 and in 1802 he also became a Peer of the United Kingdom, again as Baron Sheffield. In 1816, he was created Viscount Pevensey and Earl of Sheffield in the Peerage of Ireland.

    Notes: A hatchment is a large coat of arms, usually painted on a wood and canvas frame, which was carried at the front of a funeral procession after which they were erected over the door of a deceased person's house. Diamond in shape the hatchment stayed in place for one year, after which it was moved to the parish church where it was usually hung on a wall. Hatchments were used in Britain from the 17th century, and the last recorded use was in 1942 at Over Kellet church in Lancashire. Some churches display numerous hatchments spanning centuries of local gentry families and thus are a good source of information about local history. Look for hatchments over nave arcades or on the walls of transepts.

    A large oil on canvas armorial Heraldic hatchment. The crescent symbols usually represent either Crusader adventures of the family or a second son. The animal could be a Panther and the gilt foliate decoration is in the Rococo manner indicating a probable date of around 1750. English, mid 18th century.

    Notes: Hatchments were commemorative plaques or canvas panels representing the Heraldic Coats of Arms of prominent noble families placed in public buildings and churches of a locality around the 17th century and later, and were preceded by actual armour, arms and colours..pennants or flags in Medieval times. Many are still to be seen particularly in prestigious country houses and churches in England.

    A fine late 17th early 18th century oil on canvas portrait of a young gentleman set in a carved giltwood frame painted in the manner of John Michael Wright (1617-1694) which has been tentatively attributed to him in the past.

    The young gentleman is wearing a blue velvet coat decorated with gold wire brocade in scrolled floral and cockade patterns, with two clasps set with semi-precious stones. The chiffon choker or cravat is very restrained and unpretentious. He is possibly French but his modest and sensible appearance, his attire and his peaches and cream complexion suggest he is more likely to be English or Scottish and was probably a young country gentleman.

    Notes: John Michael Wright was an English portrait painter who was apprenticed to George Jamesone in Edinburgh from 1636–41, then spent a long period abroad, chiefly in Rome, where in 1648 he became a member of the Accademia di S. Luca, the only British painter of the 17th century to have this distinction.

    Further Notes of Interest: The frame is carved giltwood late 18th century, a little too big for the painting but has been adequately packed out behind. Part of torn label on the back is that of an art packer and shipper Andre Chenue, still in existence in Paris , but in the 1960/70s they had a small warehouse in St Martins Lane in London run by two elderly Parisian ladies. There is a torn second label on the back with the Continental figure 9 not the usual English 9 along with numerous auctioneers chalk marks indistinctly visible on the frame. There is also a stencilled inventory number on the back of the stretcher crossbar - JE 677. The 7’s are not Continental crossed so this may be an English inventory number from a gallery or collection. The painting is still in very sound condition and has been restretched and relined with linen on the back in the distant past. It has also been re-laquered many years ago, probably during the 19th century.

    Johann Heinrich Tischbein the elder, a studio portrait of a lady, half-length, wearing a green and pink lace-trimmed dress, seated at a table holding a music score.
    German, mid 18th century.

    Notes: Johann Heinrich Tischbein the Elder, called the Kasseler, (October 3, 1722 in Haina – August 22, 1789 in Kassel), was one of the most respected European painters in the 18th century and an important member of the Tischbein dynasty of German painters, which spanned four generations. His work consisted primarily of portraits of the nobility, mythology scenes, and historical paintings. For his mythology paintings he mostly resorted to models from the highest aristocracy.
