Jakob van der Schley (1715 – 1779)

Van der Schley was a Dutch draughtsman and engraver. His main interests were engraving portraits and producing illustrations for “La Vie de Marianne” by Pierre Varlet de Chamblain de Marivaux (1688-1763), published in The Hague between 1735 and 1747. He also engraved the frontispieces for a 15-volume edition of the complete works of Pierre de Brantôme (1540-1614), “Oeuvres du seigneur de Brantôme“, published in The Hague in 1740. Most of the plates in the Hague edition of Prévost’s “Histoire générale des voyages” are signed by van der Schley. He cooperated with Prosper Marchand who owned many of his prints.

Friedrich Wilhelm von Bauer (1731-1783)

Von Bauer was a Prussian Freihusarenfuhrer and Russian quartermaster general, lieutenant general, cartographer and architect.

The ports of St. Petersburg, Kronstadt and Riga were built according to his plans. In St. Petersburg, the shipyards, the city fortifications, the Bolshoi Theater, the Katerina Canal were fortified and the sewage system was built. In addition, the bank fortifications of the Fontanka and the Taitsky aqueduct that supplied Tsarskoe Selo. 

He drew some amazing maps and wrote his famous ‘Memoires historiques et geographiques sur la Valachie : avec un prospectus d’un atlas géographique & militaire de la derniere guerre entre la Russie & la Porte Ottomannete’, published in 1778.
