    • Portrait of Gov. Jonathan Belcher, engraved by Faber
      Jul. 11, 2020

      Portrait of Gov. Jonathan Belcher, engraved by Faber

      Est: $500 - $700

      Important c. 1734 mezzotint portrait of Jonathan Belcher, the Colonial Governor of Massachusetts and founder of the College of New Jersey, now Princeton University; engraving by John Faber the Younger (British, 1684-1756) after the now-lost painting by Richard Phillips. Over the subject's left shoulder is a view of Beacon Hill and its environs, derived from a circa 1723 engraving by William Burgis. Belcher is depicted standing in curly white wig and formal coat, holding his commission, with the royal seal (lower right) and the Belcher family arms (center, lower margin). Old Bowling Green, KY framer's business card taped to back of frame. Housed under glass in an ebonized frame with gilt rabbet edge. Sheet - 9 3/4" H x 13 7/8" W. Framed - 16" H x 12 1/2" W. Note: Jonathan Belcher (1682-1757) was a third-generation descendant of an early settler of the Massachusetts colony (Andrew Belcher). He became a prosperous merchant and was colonial governor of the British colonies of Massachusetts and New Hampshire from 1730-1741, and of New Jersey from 1746 until 1757, the year of his death. According to the Princeton University website, Belcher, "alienated by religious developments at his alma mater, Harvard, sympathized with the fledgling college in New Jersey. On September 14, 1748, Belcher granted a second charter, which expanded the trustees from 12 to 23, stipulating that the governor would chair the Board of Trustees and that four seats would be reserved for members of the New Jersey Council. He also added three leading Philadelphians, placating a group that had felt excluded. These appointments, by not specifying religious affiliation, made Princeton the first American college whose trustees were drawn from more than one denomination. On November 9, 1748, at the College's first Commencement, the trustees conferred on Belcher Princeton's first honorary degree. Belcher encouraged the trustees to raise funds for a college building and played a central role in its location. While Newark, Elizabeth and New Brunswick were initial favorites, Belcher threw his influence behind Princeton -- 'as near the center of the Province as any and a fine situation.' Just before the College moved to Princeton, Belcher donated his 474-volume library, a full-length portrait of himself, his carved and gilded coat-of-arms, a pair of terrestrial globes, and portraits of 10 kings and queens of England. In gratitude, the trustees asked his permission to name the new building in his honor. Instead, the governor persuaded them to name it Nassau Hall, "for the glorious King William the Third of the illustrious House of Nassau," who was highly regarded by dissenters as a champion of religious freedom and political liberty. Although only six of Belcher's books have survived, he is still honored as the library's oldest benefactor. When Firestone Library was built in 1948, his coat of arms was carved in stone over the main entrance along with those of the University. Belcher's full-length portrait and the paintings of the 10 English monarchs were destroyed during the Revolution." (Source: https://princetoniana.princeton.edu/history/early-years/belcher).

      * Faber (John 1695-1756). Mary Tofts of Godelman the pretended Rabbit Breeder, n.d., c. 1726, mezzotint on laid after John Laguerre, thread margins, 355x255 mm Mary Tofts was an English woman from Godalming in Surrey who created one of the great medical scandals of her day. Having miscarried, she then claimed to be able to give birth to parts of animals, especially rabbits. A local doctor called John Howard was called to investigate and upon delivering several animal parts summoned other physicians. The matter come to the attention of Nathaniel St. Andre, surgeon to the Royal household and physician to King George I. St. Andre examined Mary Tofts and pronounced that she was indeed giving birth to parts of rabbits. The king remained fascinated but sceptical and sent another doctor, Cyriacus Ahlers to examine Tofts. Ahlers was not convinced and Tofts was subjected to a long and thorough examination. Unable to produce any more rabbits she eventually confessed to the hoax and was subsequently imprisoned fo fraud. The general public had followed the case with prurient fascination and the revelation of the hoax caused widespread mockery of the medical profession and several careers were destroyed as a result of the scandal. Several scathing caricatures were produced in the wake of the scandal with William Hogarth being notably critical of the stupidity and gullability of the medical profession.
