Lamy a Berne, Lausanne & Geneve, s.d., ca. 1830,. 25.2x32.6 cm la feuille (11.7x16.5 cm l'image), aquatinte coloriee a la main (gouachee), encadrement au trait noir, sur papier gris/noir / Kolorierte Aquatinta mit guachiertem Blattrand, En bas de la feuille tamponnee (stamped:) 'depose' & 'Propriete de J. P. Lamy'. En bas a gauche de la feuille un num. ms. '162' (stocknumber ?), 1 feuille sous passepartout.. Johann Peter Lamy was active in Geneva ca. 1791-1838 as a specialist publisher of Swiss Alpine views; little is known of Grundmann, the artist and probably Lamy's employee. He may have been Swiss, or from Courmayeur. This aquatint is from a set of publisher's samples of Alpine views, largely around the Chain of Mont Blanc, originally taken round the countryside by a salesman to show potential buyers, hence the colouring and finishing are exceptionally fine and of the highest quality.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage.
