Seite 295 - Indian incke. water colours: graveing; and, above all, the whole secret of mezzo-tinto, and the manner of it which is very pretty, and good things done with it.
Seite 408 - God knows when they will begin to act again ; but my business here was to see the inside of the stage and all the tiring-rooms and machines ; and, indeed, it was a sight worth seeing. But to see their clothes, and the various sorts, and what a mixture of things there was ; here a wooden leg, there a ruff, here a...
Seite 428 - To Mr. Lilly's, the painter's; and there saw the heads, some finished, and all begun, of the Flaggmen in the late great fight with the Duke of York against the Dutch. The Duke of York hath them done to hang in his chamber, and very finely they are done indeed.
