Early half calf and plain brown paper boards, gilt-stamped lettering in red and green leather spine labels, gilt-stamped ornament direct in spine compartments (5 raised bands); oblong 8vo (315x203mm); 24 parts, each with a separate title-p., bound in a single volume, with 141 (of 144) plates. Binding scuffed and a little spotted; front joints cracked. Some light foxing and dust-smudging, but overall internally nice and clean. The number of plates per part varies from 4 to 8, these numbered in an early hand an apparently lacking plates 36-38 from Part 6. The first 12 plates and title pages of Parts 1 and 2 are trimmed and mounted to sheets of a size matching the remainder of the pages. Several of the plates are dated in the 1770s. A rare collection of plates for instruction and inspiration in drawing (portraits, ornament, scenes, landscapes, and more), mostly etchings but a few in other engraved mediums. OCLC locates only a single copy of this work at the National Library of Poland, that copy lacking Parts 1 and 2 but including a 25th part not present here and dating the collection, presumably in error, to 1767.
