Description:

Folio. Complete two-volume set. Olive cloth spines with gilt-lettered leather labels and marbled paper over boards with calf corners. ciii, 368pp; (ca. 250pp). Title pages in black and red with engraved vignettes, 208 copper-plate engravings. Very good. Binding edgeworn and scuffed and age toned, but tight and durable; internally very good to near fine, showing occasional light foxing but overall clean and sharp; upper outer corner of each front flyleaf corner clipped (presumably to remove slightly visible ownership signature). An appealing and attractive first edition, published by the author, of this pioneering work by Johann Joachim Winckelmann (1717-68), German art historian and archaeologist. Entirely in Italian, its title translates "Unpublished Monuments of Antiquity Explained and Illustrated," and in it "the father of modern archaeology" (as Winckelmann is known) applies his scientific archaeology principles to a wide range of archaeological artifacts depicted in 208 superb copper-plate engravings (which fill the second volume). He explains through sharp observation how numerous objects have been misidentified and shows how to separate Greek artifacts from Greco-Roman artifacts and Roman artifacts. All 208 engravings are present, bold and lovely, with plates #197 and #198 bound slightly out of sequence. Early 20th century bookplate of Katharine Allen on 2nd volume front flyleaf. Quite scarce in this first edition form. Bookseller Inventory #
