[Ten portraits of horses] - Malleyn, G - 1800. 
Rotterdam, ca. 1800. Ten original engravings (ca. 15.0 x 12.0 cm), all but one mounted on contemporary paper (ca. 27.0 x 21.5 cm).l This is a collection of ten drawings made by the Dutch artist Gerrit Malleyn (1753-1816) - who specialized in drawing horses - and engraved by the Dutch artist, Johannes Adriaanz Bemme (1775-1841). Bemme was renowned for his horse engravings and engraved nearly all the horses in J. F. Teupken's "Beschrijving hoedanig de Koninklijke Nederlandsche troepen en alle in militaire betrekking staande personen gekleed, geÃ«quipeerd en gewapend zijn" ("Description of the Royal Dutch troops and all military related people and their clothes, equipment and arms" see Landwehr, 455). The illustrations are quite lively and show horses in different moods. Impressions strong, paper quality good. A nice collection. Complete suites, with 12 engravings, are very rare but single engravings are quite uncommon too.
