in his life he took to the fhidy of antiquities, and be« 
fides his quarto volume, containing accouots of our 
earlieii printers and their works, he publifhed a lift in 
duodecimo of Bnglifh heads, engraved and mezzotinto»

gendary hifiories, he turned the Teftament

Xs, another engraver in Meres's recapitula* 
tion of Englilh artifts. He en^aved a title- 
page to Linfchoten's Voyages to the Eaft 
Indies ; and probably the cuts to Hugh 
Broughton's Confent of Scriptures, which 
have this mark W^r ^^'^ which Vertue fays 
have been reckoned the firft graved plates 
dque in England. But this is a miftake; 
for Broughton's book was not printed till 
i6cx:>.* He alfo did heads of (^Eliza- 

iieved that they were cat by Chr. Switzer^ and that 
- -thefe plates were copied by Holl^ for Sandford. S wit- 
her alfo cut the coins and feals in Speed's Hiftory of 
Great Britain 1614, from the originals in the Cotton- 
ian colledicm. Speed calls him, the mofi ixqtdfiti and 
curious hand of that age. He probably engraved the 
{ iiotanic figures §Qt Lobel's Obfervations, and the; plates 
- &i Fdrliinfoii's Paradifus Terrefbis, 1629. Chr. Swit- 
^^zer'« works have been fometimes confounded with Jiis

^I have a very valuable print of the Pala-

manner I fhould take it for Sadeler. The 
king of Bohenniaj^ aged, fat, and melan-

trees. One of their fans, in appearance 
between twenty and thirty, ftands by the 
queen. On the other fide are three young 
children, the ieaft playing with a rabbit. 
Two greyhounds, a pigeon, a toad, and 
fev^ral animals are difpofed about the land-

freedom. The infcription is in French.

cxift* Nonfuch, that objeft of* curiofity, is 
commonly known only by the imperfeft and 
confufed fketch In one of Speed's map6» but 
there is a large and fine print of it^ by G. 
Hocfnagle, in the firft volume ofBraun'sCi- 
yitates Orbis Terrarum. Of* Old Richmond 
and Greenwich I have drawings i and of the 
former is a linall view by Hollar. In Over* 
ton's lift is mentioned a map of the Royal- 
exchange by Thomas Cartwright, the builder. 

* At the lord vifcoant FitzwilU^uns's on Richmond* 
green, are two very large j)idtai:es, which came out of 
the old neighbouring palace : they are views of that 
palace, and were painted by.Viiickenboom, who I ne. 
ver knew was in England. The landfcape in both is 
good, and touched in the ftyle of Rubens ; the figures 
are indifferent, the horfes bad. In the view to the green 
is t ftag*hanting : in the other morrice-dmcers, and a 
fool colledting money from the fpe^tors. By the 
drefTes Acy appear to have been painted about the lat- 
ter end of James I. or beginning of Charles^ for fome 
of the ruffs are horizontal, fome fitUing on the breaft, 
which latter faihion was introduced at that period« 
There appears to have been a pretty deuched diapdl» 
which is not inHoUar's view, and a bo^tfded gallery to 
. the ferry.

In this place Ihould appear the indefa-

be impertinent to dwell on his article. 
Though employed by bookfellers, few of

approach to wanting a magnifying glafs, 
the Jiearer they advance to perfeftion.

Mr; FRANCIS PLACE, 

A gentleman of Yorkfhire, had a turn to' 
moft of the beautiful arts. He painted, * 
deligned and etched ; Verrue had heard that 
he learned the latter of Hollar, and ha^ pre- 
ferved a letter that he received from Mr. 
Place, in anfwer to Tiis inquiries into that 
faft and about Hollar himfelf, of whom he 
relates on his own knowledge many particu- 
lars which Vertue has inferted in his Kfe of 
that artift, but denies his having been in* 
ftru6ted by him. Mr. Place was a younger 
fon of Mr. Rowland Place of Dinfdale in 
the .county of Durham, and was placed ^s- 
clerk to an attorney in London, where he 
continued till 1665, in whkh year going 
into a (hop, the officers came to fhiit up the* 
houfe, on its having the plague in it. This. 
<>ccafioned his leaving London; and gave, 
l»m an opportunity of quitting a profeflion

GEORGE WHITE, 

Son of Robert, finiftied fome of his fathcr^s 
plates, and engraved others himfelf, but 
chiefly pra&ifed in mezzotinto, in which he 
fucceeded, and had ibmetimes 20 guineas 
for a plate. His beft, I think, are of Sir 
Richard Blackmore, and Sylvcfter Petyt, 
the latter remarkably fine. He alfo painted 
in oil, and more frequently in miniature* 
One of his firft large heads, in his father*s 
manner^ was of James Gardiner biihop of 
Lincoln. He was alive ib late as the year 
1731, when a print by him of bifliop Wef^ 
ton is dated. 

ARTHUR SOLY 



1683} 



Was much employed by Robert 
White, who drew his head in black 
lead, which was engraved in 1683. Him- 
felf did prints of Richard Baxter and Tobias 
Crifp.
