The Reign of Charles I


Printmaker: Mynde, James
Publisher: Bowles, Thomas II



Acquisition and important dates

by Unknown


18th Century
Circa 1728 CE - Circa 1752 CE


Thomas Bowles's first series of prints of the life of Charles I was published in 1728, by some printmakers who were brought over from the Continent (or perhaps executed in Paris), after several paintings by various artists including Pieter Angellis, Louis Chéron, Joseph Parrocel and Jean Raoux. This is a copy of the series, published by the same men. The plates are the same height as those in the original set but slightly narrower. They have the titles at the top of the plate and a description of the event at the bottom, in English only (the originals had a description in English and French, divided into two columns). The publication details only appear on the first print of the set. The printmakers' names only appear on some of the plates.
