About This Item

Paris: P.Didot, 1816. 4to, original printed pink boards, later morocco spine. Duplicate withdrawn from the Metropolitan Museum with their bookplate indicating the 1976 gift of Lincoln Kirstein, founder with George Balanchine of what is now called the NYC Ballet. Older bookplate effaced. Tiny stamp of the Museum on verso of plates; considerable foxing although the plates are clean. Twelve exquisite small engravings, an example of the works illustrated by miniature plates which were popular in 1789 because of unsettled political and economic conditions and appearing for another quarter century. (See Gordon Ray, page 148). Scarce : only an 1836 Brussels edition on OCLC. Cohen, Guide de l'Amateur de Livres a Vignettes et a Figures du XVIIIe Siecle.. Original Boards, Later Spine. Very Good. Illus. by Jean duplessi-Bertaux. 4to.
