Todas las reproducciones plateadas de los niellos conservan su protección. Como en todos los ejemplares, puntos de oxidación en algunas de las hojas de facsímiles sin afectar apenas, salvo en cuatro de las catorce hojas que reproducen las cartas de una baraja, donde varios facsimiles de naipes están afectados.- // Proc.: Ex-libris encolado en contraplano delantero, Paul Marceau.- // Refs.: Bigmore & Wyman, II, p. 98; Quaritch (1868), 11040; Stirling, p. 99.- // Exquisita muestra de grabados del siglo XVI.Si la tirada de esta obra no venal fue corta de por sí, el ejemplar que comentamos es uno de los escasos publicados en gran papel donde Ottley hizo reproducir los grabados de tipo "nielli" estampándolos sobre "pan de plata", a imitación de su producción original. Su denominación como "nielli" procedía de la técnica empleada tradicionalmente en los talleres de orfebrería donde el hueco que quedaba entre las filigranas de plata se rellenaba con un esmalte negro, el niello, compuesto de plata, plomo y azufre, para resaltarlas. Gran coleccionista de arte renacentista italiano, especialmente de grabado y de pintura, William Ottley residió en Italia entre 1791 y 1798, periodo durante el que adquirió, de orígenes en ocasiones ligados a los avatares de la invasión napoleónica, parte de su impresionante colección. Enamorado y estudioso de los grabados y de las técnicas que podían emplearse en sus variantes, a finales de su vida vió recompensada su dedicación cuando en 1833 fue designado "Keeper of the Prints and drawings" del rey. Varios años antes, al concebir la publicación de esta obra, la imaginó como una selección exquisita de 300 grabados, que presentaría mediante facsímiles distribuidos en tres volúmenes. El primero vió la luz en 1826 bajo el título de "A collection of fac-similes of scarce and curious prints, by the early masters., in the middle of the fifteenth century, to the end of the century following, . Vol. 1.- London: Published for the proprietor; and sold by Longman, 1826" (1). Este primer volumen, sin embargo, no tuvo continuación y, en 1828, apareció otra obra, a la que corresponde este ejemplar, en la que de reproducir cien grabados se pasaba a presentar 129, aumentando con ello de 20 a 26 las páginas del catálogo que las precedía. Sobre esta obra, Bigmore señaló que casi podría decirse que "es inédita porque se imprimieron muy pocos ejemplares y solo circuló como regalo de su autor a sus amigos. Se trata de un estupendo suplemento para su History of engraving (2), con la que comparte el tamaño, la tipografía, etc. En las copias en gran papel los facsímiles de Nielli aparecen impresos en plata imitando exactamente los apreciadísimos originales, ofreciendo un duplicado en papel de India. Tal es la belleza de los originales, que ni siquiera las reproducciones grabadas en este hermoso volumen pueden alcanzarla" (3).- // (1) Frontispicio, [6], XXXVI, XX, [1] p., [100] h. de grab.- (2) Bigmore, .
