Book Description Collectors Editions, New York, 1971. Two volumes (one of text, one of plates), complete. First and only edition of the standard catalogue raisonné of Della Bella's prints. De Vesme's catalogue initially appeared in 1906 (as pp. 66-332 of his "Peintre-Graveur Italien") but that edition is less than ideal, both because it is unillustrated and because of its many errors and omissions. In the late 1960s Phyllis Dearborn Massar performed the Herculean task of assembling photographs of the over 1,300 prints described, correcting De Vesme's mistakes, and supplying new information regarding unknown states and proofs. This two-volume edition is the result of her outstanding scholarship. Folio, bound in publisher's cloth. Tiny traces of wear to extremities of bindings, otherwise as new. The essential reference for anyone interested in Della Bella's prints. Seller Inventory # 38860
