The Lord Euston by Kneller
Charles Fitzroy, 2nd Duke of Grafton when Lord Euston (1683-1757)'
From volume "Mezzotintoes by Smith Vol II" 1689 . By and published by John Smith, after Sir Godfrey Kneller, Bt Mezzotint  340 mm x 255 dated in plate to1689 cut to image with some light edge soiling, small old crease above title right.John Smith (1652-1743) was a gifted and ambitious printmaker and publisher whose long career began in the reign of Charles II and closed after the accession of George II. He was born in Northamptonshire and worked in London, specializing in the relatively new technique of mezzotint printing. Between 1683 and 1729 he produced over three hundred prints. Trained as a printmaker he was able to retain a controlling hand when, in the early 1690s, he turned from pure printmaking to printmaking and publishing. The refinement and 'modernity' of his prints brought him fame and then material prosperity and Smith's career, largely independent of interference from outside publishers, must have been an inspiration to William Hogarth (1697-1764) and the next generation of printmakers. £105 PRE BOYDELL on laid

Prince George of Denmark, Duke of Cumberland (1653-1708), Consort of Queen Anne; son of King Frederick III of Denmark and Norway and Sophie Amalie of Brunswick-Lüneburg Later Stuart Portraits Catalogue Entry Sitter in 34 portraits The second son of Frederick III, King of Demark, George married Princess Anne in 1683. There was not much affection for George in England: he was widely held to be lazy, incompetent, hypocritical, and to speak poor English. Anne became Queen of England in 1702, but George was not made King. He was given charge of the Admiralty but had little skill. This was made worse by the chronic asthma which eventually killed him. by George Vertue, after anon ... from Vertues work "The Heads of the Kings of England Proper Published: P.

He was called Beauclerc for his scholarly interests and Lion of Justice for refinements which he brought about in the rudimentary administrative and legislative machinery of the time. by George Vertue, after anon ... from Vertues work "The Heads of the Kings of England Proper Published: P.

King Henry VI (1421-1471), Reigned 1422-61 and 1470-71 Sitter associated with 39 portraits Henry VI descended from the royal house of Lancaster and succeeded to the throne at the age of nine months. A council ruled in his name during his minority. As an adult he suffered military defeats and territorial losses in France. Contemporary accounts indicate his personal instability and he was involved in constant power struggles. After losing the crown to the Duke of York (Edward IV) in 1461, he was imprisoned between 1465 and 1470. In 1470 the hapless king was briefly restored to the throne but was captured and perhaps murdered. He was the founder of Eton College and King's College, Cambridge.

King Edward IV
King Edward IV (1442-1483), Reigned 1461-70 and 1471-83 The first Yorkist King of England. Edward was the son of Richard, Duke of York and great grandson of Edward III. Following his father's death in 1460, Edward defeated Henry VI's Lancastrian supporters at a decisive battle in the ongoing Wars of the Roses and was crowned king in 1461. Edward's unpopular marriage in 1464 to a commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, alienated his staunchest supporter, the Earl of Warwick, who staged an invasion with Henry VI's queen, Margaret of Anjou, in 1470. Edward was forced to flee but returned in 1471, killing Warwick and finally establishing the House of York firmly on the throne. As king he renewed England's wars with France, and reorganised crown revenues. from Vertues work "The Heads of the Kings of England Proper Published: P. Rapin de Thoyras [trans. N.
