LORRAIN (CLAUDE)
Liber Veritatis. Or, a Collection of Two Hundred Prints after the Original Designs of Claude Le Lorrain, in the Collection of His Grace The Duke of Devonshire, Executed by Richard Earlom, in the Manner and Taste of the Drawings, vol. 1-2 (of 3), mezzotint portrait in volume one only, 200 mezzotint plates by R. Earldom after Claude Lorrain, all printed in bistre and black (plate 26 loosely inserted from another copy, and with a further impression tipped in, printed in black, without text and cut to the platemark; plate 74 with 2 additional impressions loosely inserted), bookplate of Viscount Midleton, later half morocco gilt, t.e.g., slightly rubbed [Abbey, Life 200; Cohen-de Ricci, p.242], folio, John Boydell, 1777

Footnotes

  • The fine mezzotint plates represent "a landmark in the history of reproduction of master drawings" (Abbey).

    This copy varies slightly from that in Abbey. Each title is dated 1777 below the imprint, and volume one has twelve (rather than Abbey's fourteen) pages of text, but is apparently complete as such. A third volume was published in 1819.
