Christie, James

A catalogue of an interesting assemblage of original studies, chalk and tinted drawings and a few finished in oils : chiefly wild and domestic animals, deer and subjects relating to the Chace : also a fine copy of he celebrated Windmill by Rembrandt, executed by E. A. Spilsbury, Esq. : together with a few Dutch etchings and prints of animals by Ridinger, Woollett, &c. : this pleasing assemblage is offered to sale merely to lessen the collection of an amateur artist, whose professional studies and knowledge of anatomy have directed him to this line of amusement : it is presumed they will be found well worthy the attention of the public : they will be sold by auction by Mr. Christie, at his Great Room, Pall Mall, on Wednesday, July the 15th, 1807.
