1 Crozat, Joseph Antoine Miscellaneous Engravings in Color [Recueil D'Estampes D'Apres les Plus Beaux Tableaux et D'Apres les Plus Beaux Desseins qui sont en France]
Paris Chez Basin 1729-1742 Full Morocco Fine 
A set of spectacular hand-colored baroque wood engravings of mythological and allegorical scenes mostly. Large folio. Nine hand-colored copperplate engravings and mezzotints from an edition of Cabinet Crozat. Four of the plates are double sided. While this is far from the full complement of plates from Crozat's work, they are hand-colored, and meticulously so, and generally one does not encounter so. The paintings represented are "La Champestre", by Dominque Feti and from the Royal Collection, "Mars et Venus lies par l'Amour" by Paul Veronese from the Collection of the Duc D'Orleans, "Venus et Adonis" by Paul Veronese from the Cabinet de M. Dupille, "Portrait de Raphael" from the Royal Collection, "Erigone" by Guido Reni, "Venus Couchee" from the Palazzo Barberini in Rome, "Le Triomphe de Titus et de Vespasien" by Jules Romain from the Royal Collection, "Galatee" by Carle Maratte from the Collection of the Duc D'Orleans, and "Jupiter amoureux d"Antiope se transforme en Satire" by Titien in the Royal Collection. The collection might have been created by a print seller. There are many blank sheets upon which the compiler might have intended to add additional prints; there is evidence on only a single leaf that a print might have been removed. In any case, the binding is magnificent and for that reason, this collection deserves to remain as such. Full green Morocco ruled and lettered in gilt, with morocco doublures and silk endpapers. Even with some scuffs and wear on the binding, it is magnificent. The volume measures a massive 24.5 by 18 inches, or 62 by 49 cm.
