WILLIAM JOY
(c1675-1734). English Strongman, Known As 'The English Sampson.' Line Engraving, C1819(William Joy was a native of Kent, and born May 2, 1675, at St. Lawrence, a small village one mile from Ramsgate, in the Isle of Thanet. When very young, he distinguished himself among his juvenile companions and playmates, by his amazing superiority in strength, over any antagonist that dare to come in competition with his power, whether in play or earnest When about twenty-four years of age, he first began to exhibit in public his astonishing feats, in a display of personal prowess inferior to none but the Hebrew champion recorded in holy writ. Among many other of this man's extraordinary performances may be recorded:—1. A strong horse, urged by the whip to escape his powerful rein, is restrained and kept from escape solely by the check of his pull, aided by a strong rope, and this without any stay or support whatever. 2. Seated upon a stool, with his legs horizontally elevated, solely by muscular power, he jumps clearly from his seat. 3. To prove the agility and flexibility of his joints, he places a glass of wine on the sole of his foot, and, in an erect posture, without the least bending of his head or body, raises the glass to his mouth, and drinks the contents, turning his foot with both hands, to accommodate his draught. 4. Aided by a strong leather girdle, or belt, and supporting himself by pressing his arms on a railing, he lifts from the ground a stone of the enormous weight of 2,240 lbs. 5. A rope fastened to a wall, which had borne 3,500 lbs. weight, without giving way, is broke asunder by his amazing strength. The celebrity of this man attracted the curiosity of King William III., before whom he exhibited at Kensington Palace; likewise before George, Prince of Denmark, and his royal consort, the Princess, afterwards Queen Anne, and their son William, Duke of Gloucester, called the Hope of England. He also went through a regular course of performances at the Duke's Theatre, in Dorset-gardens, Salisbury-square, which was attended by the first nobility and gentry in the kingdom.)

 Engraved by Nicolas de Launay after Joseph Siffred Duplessis Printed Paris, c. 1780 Copper engraving 235x170mm Trimmed within platemark tipped on to paper blindstamp to base corner  Swiss financier Jacques Necker (1732-1804).  Geneva-born Jacques Necker started off as a clerk in a Swiss bank of Issac Vernet at the age of 15 and worked his way to the top quickly. In 1750 Necker moved to bank's Paris branch and, by 1762, was made partner. He made numerous loans to the French government, was appointed minister for Geneva in Paris and sat on the board of directors of the French Compagnie des Indes. It was the news of Necker's removal as Minister of Finance that the population of Paris headed to the Bastille on July 14th 1789. Necker was appointed Minister of Finance by the new regime, but went into retirement at his Swiss estate soon afterwards. Father of the intellectual and Swedish Ambassadress Germaine de Stael, he returned to Paris in 1792 to make a passionate and ultimately unsuccessful plea before the National Assembly to spare the life of King Louis XVI. £35 inc unmounted
