About The Poster: These two engravings from 1745 are from a book produced by Mr. Tindal, as a continuation of Mr. Rapin's History of England. Rapin's "The History of England. This publication chronicles the time of Britain from the invasion of the Romans to the death of Charles I. It was published in Holland in 1724 in 8 volumes. The work was an attempt to be exhaustive in the spirit of the eighteenth century philosophies by treating the subject from prehistoric times up to the date of publication. It was translated into English and published by Nicholas Tindal in London between 1725-31. Tindal was chaplain to Sir Charles Wager in the Baltic in 1726. It was at this time he published the first of fifteen volumes of his translation of Rapin's History of England."

These original prints are incredibly detailed and include not only the visages of kings and queens but symbols that were important to them as well. They will frame up beautifully and would, we feel, add a sense of charm and elegance to any room, office, or even country house!
