$ 98.00

Rescued while on a trip in the Cotswolds, these bust-length copper engravings are unique in size and age. Engraved byJacob, or Jacobus, Houbraken. He was a Dutch portrait engraver, and dealer and collector of Rembrandt's etchings. The portraits featured in the series, which were engraved by Jacob Houbraken and George Vertue. Originally issued from 1737 onwards in portfolios of four portraits. Between 1743 and 1752, the series was published by John and Paul Knapton in London in the form of Birch's The Heads of Illustrious Persons of Great Britain, and contained biographies alongside the portraits. These are stunning works of art and would transition well in any frame.
