About this Item

A set of spectacular hand-colored baroque wood engravings of mythological and allegorical scenes mostly. Large folio. Nine hand-colored copperplate engravings and mezzotints from an edition of Cabinet Crozat. Four of the plates are double sided. While this is far from the full complement of plates from Crozat's work, they are hand-colored, and meticulously so, and generally one does not encounter so. The paintings represented are "La Champestre", by Dominque Feti and from the Royal Collection, "Mars et Venus lies par l'Amour" by Paul Veronese from the Collection of the Duc D'Orleans, "Venus et Adonis" by Paul Veronese from the Cabinet de M. Dupille, "Portrait de Raphael" from the Royal Collection, "Erigone" by Guido Reni, "Venus Couchee" from the Palazzo Barberini in Rome, "Le Triomphe de Titus et de Vespasien" by Jules Romain from the Royal Collection, "Galatee" by Carle Maratte from the Collection of the Duc D'Orleans, and "Jupiter amoureux d"Antiope se transforme en Satire" by Titien in the Royal Collection. The collection might have been created by a print seller. There are many blank sheets upon which the compiler might have intended to add additional prints; there is evidence on only a single leaf that a print might have been removed. In any case, the binding is magnificent and for that reason, this collection deserves to remain as such. Full green Morocco ruled and lettered in gilt, with morocco doublures and silk endpapers. Even with some scuffs and wear on the binding, it is magnificent. The volume measures a massive 24.5 by 18 inches, or 62 by 49 cm. Bookseller Inventory # 002101

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
