Andrew F Affleck - Etching - Chapel at Rue - France
ANDREW F AFFLECK (British 1869 - 1935)


Affleck was a Scottish painter and etcher born in Ayr who specialised in architectural subjects. Ranked with Hedley Fitton and Axel Haig he also produced a few landscape and topographical scenes. He settled in London having spent a lot of time travelling extensively and living for long periods in England, Belgium, France and Spain. Affleck etched many views in England, Holland, Italy, Belgium, and in America. Around 1910 Affleck moved permanently to France and some of his finest art deals with French buildings and their interiors. He exhibited at the RSA and RA between 1904 and 1923.


Today, the largest collections of Affleck's original etchings are housed in the British Museum, London.

Antique Framed Road Map by John Ogilby
The Road Map of London to Barstaple in Devon by John Ogilby(1600-1675)

John Ogilby, a colourful character who led a turbulent life. Only took to map-making in later life. He was made Geographic Printer and Cosmologist to the King by Charles II.

The 'Britannia' was the first national road-atlas of any country in Western Europe. It was composed of maps of seventy-three major roads and cross-roads, presented in a continuous strip-form. For the first time in England, an atlas was prepared on a uniform scale, at one inch to a mile, based on the statute mile of 1,760 yards to the mile. Ogilby claimed that 26,600 miles of roads were surveyed in the course of preparing the atlas, but only about 7,500 were actually depicted in print.

The atlas was composed of a hundred sheets of roads, with each covering a distance of about 70 miles. Longer roads, such as London to Lands End, were depicted on a series of sheets. On each map, the road is depicted in a series of parallel strips. The surveyors noted whether the roads were enclosed by walls or hedges, or open, local landmarks, inns, bridges (with a note on the material of construction), fords, and sometimes even the cultivation being practised in the country on either side of the road. Hills were drawn to show the direction of their incline, and relative steepness.



The 'Britannia', issued in 1675, is a landmark in the mapping of England and Wales. After its publication, no map in England could be published without incorporating his information. Four editions were printed the last being in 1698.



A genuine uncoloured road map, dating to 1698.

In excellent condition. No tears or damage.

In it's old frame from 1972, could perhaps do with re-framing though..


Measures approx:

Road Map only: 18" x 13". 46cm x 33cm.

Including Frame: 21 1/2" x 17 1/2". 55cm x 45cm.


A lovely piece of cartographical history for any collector.

Georgian Reverse Glass Painting of St Matthew c.1800
Stunningly beautiful, rare, late George III, hand painted reverse glass picture.

Dating to c.1800.

Depicting an image of St Matthew.

Inscription at the bottom:

St Matthew. Pub. Dec.13.1800. by I.Hinton, 44 top of Well Strt,, Oxford Strt,,



Amazing attention to detail, showing wonderful craftmanship.

In beautiful condition, the colours are crisp and strong.

Age commensurate yellow marking to the painting and some old marks as you see to the area around the sleeve and left edge of the picture. The frame is not original I think, and needs some attention or replacing as the glass has some room for movement.

Measures approx picture only:

7 1/2" x 9 1/2".

Frame:

10" x 12".

A truly stunning piece for any collector of religious works of art.
