David Loggan, 1634 - 1692. British engraver, draughtsman and painter. He married in 1663 and moved two years later to Nuffield, Oxon, to avoid the plague. He was living in Oxford by 1669, when he was appointed 'public sculptor' to the university. He then proceeded to draw and engrave all the Oxford colleges in bird's-eye views for his famous folio Oxonia illustrata , published in 1675, the year that he was made a British citizen. The book appeared in two editions which included :- Engraved title-page, index of plates, privilege leaf, dedication to Charles II, preface leaf, double-page plan of Oxford and 39 copper-engraved views, 1 folding, 38 double-page. The rarer second edition was printed, unusually, on thicker paper,. The plates in the second edition are easily recognised by the addition of a plate number in the bottom right-hand corner. Otherwise they are unchanged from the first edition, and the strength of the impression is indicative of the comparatively small number of copies printed in 1675 That year he once again settled in London, living in Leicester Fields, where he let rooms to aristocratic patrons, notably Sir Thomas Isham, and acted as their agent in the acquisition of works of art. From 1676 he was involved in preparing the folio
Condition : Very good condition slight random foxing the impressed size is 360 x 240 mm and the sheet size is 430 x 270 mm.
