‘Came to England soon after Louis XIV took Utrecht, and settled at Oxford where besides several other things he engraved the almanacs; his first appeared in 1676, without his name. He made many small views for the new buildings at Queen’s-college, and drew an exact plan of the old chapel before it was pulled down.’ (Horace Walpole ‘A catalogue of engravers who have been born or resided in England’)
