One Captain Fisher wrote upon Mr. Lodge's picture— " Parisiis, Burdegalæ, Romæ, ac postremo Venetiis humanioribus studiis juxta biennium versatus, jam tandem honestis literis et artibus excultus, natale solum petiit 1671, ætatis 23, jam pridem hospitii Lincolniensis admisso socio."
Mr. Lodge's works, besides those I have mentioned, are—
View of Gaeta, the Mole and Plan- cus's tomb.
Pozzuolo, Caracalla's Mole, Baiæ, &c.
Ruins of the Amphitheatre and Aqueduct at Minturnum.
Promontory of Circe, Temple of the Sun, &c.
Lambeth-house from the Thames.
Westminster-hall and the Abbey.
View of York, from the water-house to the ruins of the Manor-house.
Besides these, which were small, he did some large plates of—
The Poon du Gard in Languedoc. To this he signs W].
The Monument. This is reckoned the best draught of it.
Leeds, with the ruins of Kirkstal and Fountain abbeys, with a map of the wapentakes of Shireach and Mor- ley, and a prospect of Wakefield.
Newcastle-upon-Tine, with lesser views of Tinmouth-castle, Alnwic, Holy-island, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Car- lisle, and Barnard-castle; all which were finished, and a specimen printed off, before the plate was spoiled by an accident. In the middle was designed a map of Northumberland, and at bottom a prospect of Durham, of the same dimensions with that of New- castle.
Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Dysart; different plates.
Oliver Cromwell and his page; dedicated to the Protector.
Samuel Malines, after a picture by Claret.
He painted some few things from the life in oil.
son of a divine of the same names, 1 is the only person whom I find to have been royal engraver by patent, which himself, on a print of his father, prefixed to the latter's Clavis, tells us he was. 2 By what interest he obtained this distinction does not appear ; certainly by no great excellence in his profession. Nor are his works numerous,____________________
