John Baptist Jackson (1701-1754) trained as a wood engraver before traveling to Paris and, finally, to Venice where he became proficient in the chiaroscuro woodcut technique printed in several colours. He is noted chiefly for his major work comprising 24 chiaroscuro woodcuts after paintings by Venetian masters made from 1739 to 1743 and published in Venice in a bound volume in 1745, now considered one of the greatest examples of 18th-century print-making. When Jackson returned to London in 1745 he stopped producing his woodcuts and instead began to work in textile and wallpaper patterning. These efforts did not succeed and he issued a book in 1754 entitled An Essay on the Invention of Engraving and Printing in Chiaro Oscuro, but did not produce any further work .

JOSEPHUS, FLAVIUS,
Historien Und Buecher
0. 1571.. vom juedischen Krieg .. alles aus dem urspruenglichen Griechischen Exemplar .. verteutscht. Two parts in one volume, Frankfurt, 1571; folio; [5ll] including engraved title-page, [1l.] [blank], 348 ll, with 83 large wood-cut illustrations, + 177 ll. with 14 wood-cut illustrations [making 97 woodcuts in all], final leaf with colophon & large printer's device of Georg Raben/und Weygand Hanen Erben; contemporary pigskin dated 1572, decorative brass bosses and holders for the now-lost metal clasps; the pigskin of the front hinge cracked but holding firmly, slanting crack in the skin on the front board, with slight loss of surface, another small surface hole the size of a small coin on front board; pale library stamp on front blank and verso of last page, scattered marginal library stamps (very small)); contents lightly browned, with a stabhole in c. 80 leaves which affectsa few letters. The front board - somewhat darkened - bears the title in capitals, and the date 1572 in a once dyed or painted central panel; the blind-stamped ornament of the boards is clearer on the brighter rear board: it includes panels of acorns, fleurs-de-lys, and small historical portraits. This copy is made particularly interesting by a contemporary full-page manuscript ex-libris in black, red, yellow, and silver with a full-page armorial crest and the name "Johan Tobing her Leonardes Son" painted directly on to the front paste-down. The name of a much later English owner is written neatly in small letters above, in the top margin. The book later passed to Stoke-on-Trent Public Library, who consigned it with other books to auction in 2006. Text in German.
