In the year 1687, as the world turned its pages, history unfolded with a hand and quill pen. Nell Gwynn, renowned for her charm and wit, graced the houses she called home with her presence. Meanwhile, Jb Lully's bust stood tall, a testament to his musical genius. Johann Albrecht Bengel delved into theological depths during this time of enlightenment. In another corner of the world, a secret was kept hidden in an oak tree - the Connecticut charter safeguarded from prying eyes. Charles Cotton and Humphrys weaved words together like silk threads on paper. Across borders in France's grand Versailles palace, an enchanting avenue led to stables adorned with gates and courtyards; captured forever in a line engraving from The Description of Versailles. Jb Lully's melodies echoed through Johannot and Geille's artistry. Emblema XXXIV emerged from bronze baths as it took shape in copper form - beauty born out of metalwork. On Venice's Grand Canal, serenades floated through gondolas under moonlit skies. And amidst all these tales of glory and splendor came tragedy - Prince Orange met his untimely demise by drowning between 1687-1711. A headpiece adorned with floral compositions whispered secrets on thick yellow paper; its manuscript holding stories yet to be told. As 1687 drew to a close, it left behind fragments of history that would continue to captivate generations to come.
