Other Images:

Engraving, 1657, 323 x 245 mm., Robert-Dumesnil 223 i/iii, Petitjean & Wickert 208 i-ii/iv. Exceedingly fine impression on laid paper, trimmed just inside the borderline and thus removing the narrow plate margin with (or without) the vertical line that distinguishes P&W's 1st and 2nd states (the 1st state is RRR); tiny nick at the upper right edge, tiny tear at the left edge, the sheet edges slightly browned, some old tape verso. Seguier was Chancellor of France until his death. The year of his death and his age (84) have been inscribed in brown ink in an old hand on either side of his coat of arms.

Junius S. Morgan (ref. Lugt 1536) The mark here does not correspond exactly to the one illustrated in Lugt, but is, like that one, inscribed in pencil on the reverse of the print and is certainly authentic. Morgan (1867-1932), the nephew of J. Pierpont Morgan, was a banker, living in Princeton, N.J. and later in Paris. He was a collector both of Delft pottery and of prints, the latter collection containing, according to Lugt, an exceptional group of Dürers and a famous impression of Rembrandt’s Jan Six in addition to many other fine works. A portion of his print collection was left to Princeton University (of which he was a graduate), and a portion to the Metropolitan Museum of New York. His portrait engravings, including “belles feuilles de Nanteuil,”of which this would be one, were sold in New York in 1916 at the American Art Association.
