Description:

Twenty-Four Superb Hand-Colored Aquatint Plates Depicting The Street Vendors of Naples[CHIUSOLE, Count Adam]. [Itinerario delle Pitture, Sculture, ed Architetture plu' rare di molte citta d'Italia?]. [The Street Vendors of Naples] [n.p., n.d., ca. 1820]. Small quarto (5 1/8 x 4 1/4 inches; 130 x107 mm.). Twenty-four magnificent hand-colored aquatint plates watermarked "J. Whatman", each image approximately 3 x 4 inches: 78 x 103 mm., surrounded by a black ink border. Contemporary quarter red morocco over red patterned boards, covers decoratively bordered in gilt, spine ruled in gilt. A fine copy housed in the original matching (slightly worn) red paper over boards slip-case.A fascinating and very amusing little book. The detail of the plates and the richness and delicacy of the hand-coloring are of the highest quality. The only reference we could find to this book was in a 1940 Maggs Brothers catalog whose entry reads "[219] ITALY. CHIUSOLE (cav. Adamo). Itinerario delle Pitture, Sculture, ed Architetture plu' rare di molte citta d'Italia, del Cav. Adamo Chiusole roveretano fra gli arcadi vergisio sipiliano. Illustrated with 24 finely coloured plates. Square 12mo, original boards, uncut. Vicenza, 1782].
