A COLLECTION OF ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-NINE FACSIMILES OF SCARCE AND CURIOUS PRINTS, BY THE EARLY MASTERS OF THE ITALIAN, GERMAN, AND FLEMISH SCHOOLS; Illustrative of the history of engraving, from the invention of the art, by Maso Finiguerra, in the middle of the fifteenth century: With introductory remarks, and a catalogue of the plates.

First edition. Contemporary half vellum over blue paper-covered boards. Green morocco label to the spine with titles in gilt. Illustrated with 117 engraved plates reproducing 129 prints. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with moderate rubbing to the boards and typical marking to the vellum. The contents with foxing (affecting some prints, although with the majority clean) are otherwise in good order and free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps. An excellent example.

Provenance: From the library of Martin Stone.
