1710. In French. Vellum, 5 x 7½ inches, one filing hole, generally in good condition.With a small engraved portrait of Audran. Benoît Audran the Elder, engraver, the second son of Germain Audran, was born at Lyons in 1661. He received his first instruction in the art of engraving from his father; but had afterwards the advantage of studying under his uncle, the celebrated Gérard Audran. Although he never equalled the admirable style of his uncle, he engraved many plates of historical subjects and portraits, which have justly established his reputation. His style, like that of Gérard, is bold and clear; his drawing of the figure is very correct; and there is a fine expression of character in his heads. He was received into the Academy in 1709, and was appointed engraver to the king, with a pension. He died in 1721, in the village of Ouzouer, near Sens. His portrait, after J. Vivien, has been engraved by his nephew Benoit, the younger.

9 July 1707. 1 page 12 x 7½ inches, folds, minor marginal tears, in clean condition, Moore’s personal seal in red wax affixed. John Moore (1646–1714) was an English cleric, scholar, and book collector. He was Bishop of Norwich (1691–1707) and Bishop of Ely (1707–1714). At the time of his death in 1714, Moore's collection of books and papers contained over 30,000 items, and may have been the largest in England. To celebrate his coronation, King George I caused it to be purchased intact, at a cost of 6,000 guineas, and donated to Cambridge University. Moore's library alone contained nearly twice the material in the existing University library. While some material has been removed over the years, the gift is still largely intact, and is called The Royal Library in honour of its patron.
