large plate of Nonsuch. 1 He was one of the engravers employed by Ortelius. Vertue says that Mr. Green showed to the Society of Antiquaries a quarto containing about fifty copper plates, engraved in 1592 by James Hoefnagle of Frankfort, aged then seventeen, from drawings by his father, George, of beasts, birds, flowers, insects, &c. 2


THEODORE DE BRIE,

(1528—1598,) 3

was, as he informs us on his plates to Boissard's Roman Antiquities, a native of Liege and a citizen of Frankfort. He engraved the plates for the first four volumes of that work, the last of which was completed in 1601 and 1602, after his death, by his sons Theodore and Israel, whom he brought up to his own business. His own head and Boissard's he has prefixed to some of the volumes. The first English work that I find with his name was the funeral procession of Sir Philip Sidney, of which I have given an account before, 4 and which was expressly engraved in London. The next was 5 a title-page with the arms of the Lord Keeper Hatton at large, to Wagenar's Mariners' Mirrour, the second part, published by Antony Ashley, in 1588. The last does great honour to De Brie : he cut the curious plates describing the manners and fashions of the Virginians in the Brief and True Report of the New-found Land of Virginia, published by Thomas Hariot, 6 servant to Sir Walter Raleigh, and employed by him in the discovery. This work was printed at Frankfort, by J. Wechelius, in 1590. 7 The cuts were done at De Brie's own expense,
