Vanderbank engraved a set of heads for Kennet's History of England; they were designed by Lutterel. Vanderbank executed from the Conqueror to Queen Elizabeth ; the rest were finished by M. Vandergutch.
He also graved after Verrio's paintings at Windsor, and some other histories, and did some plates which have his name in Tijon's Book of Iron-works. He appears too to have had some concern in a manufacture of tapestry; in the Duke of Ancaster's sale was a suite of tapestry with Vanderbank's name to it.
two obscure engravers, whom Vertue mentions together for these plates—
Sir William Waller, ob. 1669.
Embassadors from Bantam, H. Peart, pictor. ; printed 1682, large folio.
Leonard Plunkenet, M.D. Collin sculp. 1681.
Oliver Plunkenet, Archbishop, ob. 1681. Collins Bruxell. sculp. [Robert Dixon, Prebendary of Rochester.]

did a head of George, Duke of Albemarle, from a painting of Barlow ; and another of John Shower, from a picture of his own ; the latter is a small mezzotinto.
