I blank, light toning to text, near fine. In custom green morocco clamshell box and cloth chemises. This edition, with the imprint "London: Printed in the Year MDCCLXVI," resembles in all respects but its title-pages the Cork edition of 1766 printed by Eugene Swiney.

Welker", verso vom Künstler bezeichnet "La Cresenza / Tenuta nella Campagna di Roma / Detto La Fabrica di Pussino.". 21,2:31,7 cm. Provenienz: Ernt Jürgen Otto, Celle, Lugt 873b.. Welker war Schüler von J.C.E. Müller (1766-1824) in Weimar und 1804-1808 an der Wiener Akademie. Als Lützower Jäger nahm er an den Freiheitskriegen teil und war Augenzeuge des Todes von Th.

Poussin (1594-1665) ließen sich von dem Kastell und der malerischen Umgebung anregen, weshalb sie im Volksmund "La valle di Pussino" genannt wurde.

Fritt porto inom Sverige.25% Temporary sale on everything. The discount will be deducted when the order is made.A fine portrrait of the queen of Denmark by the great mezzotint engraver James Watson after an original by Francis Cotes. Carolina Matilda (Mathilde in Denmark) (1751-1775) was the daughter of the Prince of Wales and the sister of George III. She married her cousin Christian VII of Denmark in 1766. The marriage did not work out as both the queen and the king had more interest in their respective lovers. The queen´s lover was the notorious royal physician Johann Friedrich Struensee. In 1770 he became privy council and for a short time the de facto ruler of Denmark, as the king´s mental status deteriorated. In 1772 the nation had had enough of the queen´s intimate and very public relationship with Struensee and she was forced to leave Denmark for Hannover where she lived her last three years before dying at the very young age of twentythree. Struensee was stripped of his power. James Watson (1740-1790) was an irish engraver working in London reproducing art work by Gainsborough, Cotes, Read, van Dyck, Metzu, Schalcken, Rubens and others. He was regarded as one of the best of his time. Francis Cotes (1726-1770) was an english painter and funding member of The Royal Academy in 1768. He specialized in pastel and crayon works and was one of the most fashionable artists of the mid 18th. century

Period hand-colored copper engraving from the [Natural History of the Birds Treated Systematically and Adorned with Copperplate Engraving Illustrations, in Miniature and Life-Size], 1766-1777. The work carries some interesting historical importance according to Peter Dance: "The production of its five massive folio volumes must have been one of the most remarkable publishing ventures ever undertaken in Florence. Begun in 1767, and [based on birds taken from the collection of Giovanni Gerini], it was completed ten years later. It was larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous work on birds, but these are not its only claim to fame. The attitudes of the birds themselves give this book its unique character. Strutting, parading, posturing, and occasionally flying....are birds whose real-life counterparts would surely disown them, and not without reason, for Manetti seems in these pictures to be depicting the human comedy, the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society. His book may still be rated among the very greatest bird books, if only for its magnificent comicality" (S. Peter Dance, The Art of Natural History: Animal Illustrators and their Work. London 1978). Approx. 10 5/8 x 13 1/2" (platemark) on watermarked paper measuring 14 1/2 x 18". The original images were drawn by Lorenzo Lorenzi, Violante Vanni, or Manetti himself.
