Francesco Moücke, 1734. folio,in contemporary full leather with armorial devise in both covers,gilded in gold, raised bands with tilte on spine, showing sign of weakness at the top, 48 x 38 cm; XXXV, [1], [2], 111 pp with 100 copper plates, showing some foxing for the firsts few pp, mainly by Domenico Campiglia. Separate work out of the 12 volumes. The project of Antonio Francesco Gori (1691-1757), the Museum Florentinum was intended to comprise a complete documentary overview of the various Florentine collections of antiquities of all sorts, drawing heavily upon the Medici collection. When completed, the Museum spanned twelve volumes published between 1731 and 1766: two on engraved gems; one on statues ; four on portraits and paintings (three of which are in the present lot) with two supplementary volumes; and three volumes on coins. The present volumes on artists were the work of Francesco Moucke. The exceptional engravings to be found in these volumes are frequently the work of Giovanni Domenico Campiglia (1692-1768), who would solidify his reputation through his later work on Giovanni Gaetano Bottari's Musei Capitolini. Gori himself would go on to contribute to a number of similar projects, including the 1752 continuation of the Thesaurus Morellianus. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
