About this Item

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.
