About this Item

Beautiful book of engravings by various artists. Engravings are full page and following each is another page giving a description of the engraving. There is slight soiling on some of the pages but generally the plates are in very nice condition. The blank page inside the front e/p is creased. The black has worn off the leather on edges, corners and down spine. There is some splitting of external spine. This is more cosmetic than structural and the binding is tight. Originally 45 engravings, unfortunately one has been removed. Plates are as follows "The Triumph of Galatea" by Domenichino "The Hawking Party at Rest" by Wouvermans "Titian's Daughter" by Titian "Apotheosis of the Virgin" by Murillo "The Alchemist" by A Van Ostade "The Misers" by Q Matsys "The Windmill" by J Ruysdael "St. Martin Deviding his Cloak" by Rubens "Going to the Ferry" by Wouvermans "The Madonna and Child" by Raffaelle "Dead Christ Supported by Cherubs" by Giorgione "The Infant Christ" by C Maratti "Weary Travellers" by Rembrandt "The Springhead" by F Zuccherelli (MISSING) "The Martyr St. Sebastian and his Companions" by P Veronese "The Madonna" by C Dolci "Children of Charles the First" by Van Dyck "Procession of the Virgin" by G Bellini "The Villiage Fete" by Teniers "St Catherine" by Guido "Abundance" by Van Eycken "The Bunch of Grapes" by Metzu "Silence!" by Carracci "The Marriage of St Catherine" by Correggio "The Negro Page" by Cuyp "St Catherine" by Domenichino "The River Bank" by Van Der Heyden "The Writing Master" by Mieris "Pastoral With Animals" by Bassano "The Daughter of Jeruselem" by Giordano "The Storm" by Van Der Velde "A Spanish Lady" by Velasquez "The Marriage at Cana" by Padovanino "The Agony in the Garden" by Basaiti "The Misers" by Teniers "The Dogana, Venice" by Canaletto "The Birth of Christ" by De Conegliano "Crossing the Ford" by Berghem "The Glory of St. Lorenzo Giustiniani" by Pordenone "The Old Mill" by Hobbema "Soldiers Gambling" by Salvator Rosa "The Miracle of St. Mark" by Tintoretto "The Old Woman's Feast" by G Douw "Milking Time" by P Potter "The Woman of Samaria" by Guercino "The Miraculous Ring of St. Mark" by Bordone This is a very heavy book but we will ship at the quoted price.
