Guitfrey gives lists oi the dies and puncheons Mauger had to
alter at various times, as late as 1707 and even after that date; also
of dies by him not approved of by the Academy. In all over four
hundred puncheons are known of this engraver, which however do
not represent the whole of his work, as neither his earliest medallic
productions nor the latest have been placed on record.

Until 1698, the medals of the Louis XIV series were struck in
sixes of 30, 32 and 36 " lignes " ; about that time, Abbe Bignon
induced Mauger to engrave 200 medals, at 150 livres each, of the
size of 18 lignes, which were executed between 1699 and 1703.

Bolzenthal remarks that Mauger took the chief part in a series of
small medals, principally from Pontchartrain's designs, and from
drawings of Coypel's medals, of which in less than seven years
he had engraved in steel two hundred and sixty pieces, with the
King's bust on all of them, the monarch's likeness, however, being
rather poor. In 1702 the artist claimed 1400 livres for seven
puncheons, one with the head of Louis XIII. and the other six with
that of Louis XIV. at the respective ages of 5, n, 22, 27, 34 and
42 years, which were to accompany the reverses of the series ot
18 lignes (36 mill.) medals.

The artist was paid 30.000 livres for work done between 1697
and 1701, but in 1703 he claimed another 38600 livres, and his
claim was supported by Abbe Bignon.

Mauger never belonged to the Royal Academy of Painting and
Sculpture, although he appears to have held a distinguished rank
among his rivals, Bernard, Cheron, and others.

MAURER (Germ.}. Die-sinker and Engraver, born at Dresden, and
nephew of John Croker, Chief-engraver at the London Mint,
1705-1741. At the call of Croker, Maurer came to London towards
1740, to assist his uncle in his work at the mint, but nothing
further is known of him, nor can it be ascertained how long he
stayed in England. It is surmised that as Croker died without male
issue Maurer had been appointed his heir.

MAYER, RUDOLPH (Aiistr.). " The revival of the Medal is arousing
at the present time more interest in Germany than has hitherto
been shown in this branch of art, one of whose chief exponents is
Professor Rudolph Mayer, of Karlsruhe. The artist is a native of
Austria, and his technical knowledge of metal-work was gained in
the Art-Handicraft School (" Kunstgewerbeschule ") in Vienna. He
won his first laurels at the Vienna Exhibition of 1873, an d as a
result was invited to Stuttgart as teacher of medalling in the School
of Art-Handicraft there. After twelve years' teaching he went in a

- 63 1 -

similar capacity through the Lehrer-collegium of the Kunstgewer-
beschule at Karlsruhe, where he has now been engaged for the past
sixteen years. Apart from his teaching, he has undertaken many
private commissions, particularly for embossed gold and silver
vessels. For some years past, however, he has continued to indulge
his old fancy for the medal and the plaquette, which was stimula-
ted by a first prize which was awarded to him. The few medals and
plaquettes reproduced here give ample proof of his ability. In addition
to figures and heads are ornamental works, which, as decorative

objects, became popular when issued from the minting establish-
ment of B. H. Mayer of Pforzheim.

Professor R. Mayer takes the best modern Frenchmen as his
models, without directly imitating them, however. He strives to
present his motive in all simplicity, with broad effects, but without
disregarding detail. Therein one recognizes the accomplished
n'selenr, and realises how out of the craftsman has sprung the artist. "
