RAPHAEL SANZIO, da Urbino (1483--1520)
Miscellaneæ picturæ vulgo grotesqves in spelæis Vaticanis à Raphaële Vrbinate elaboratæ, et à F. De la Guertiere regio pictore delineatæ insculptæ Recœil des grotesques de Raphael d'Vrbin peintes dans les loges du Vatican a Rome dessignées et gravées par F. de la Guertiere peintre du Roy.
Paris: chez Mariette rüe St. Jacques aux Colonnes d'Hercule, [c. 1710?]
17 etch. double pl. ; 30.4 cm. (2°)

The imprint of Mariette appears only on the title-plate; the other 16 plates have no imprint. This suite was probably first published in the 1660s by Jean I Le Blond, and later c. 1670 by Jean II Le Blond, whose stock of coppers passed after his death in 1709 to Pierre II Mariette. Here it forms part of L'architecture à la mode published by Jean Mariette around 1710 (q.v.), suggesting that the Soane copy of the compilation may have been issued after the death of Pierre II Mariette in 1716. See BAL, Early printed books, no. 2712. See also Guilmard p. 79; Berlin Kat. 525.

Copy Notes Bound as pencil numbers 116--132 in Mariette, L'architecture à la mode (q.v.).

Binding C18th sprinkled calf, gilt tooled spine, red spine label gilt lettered 'Architec/ A La/ Mode', blind lettered 'Tome/ II', circular paper label numbered in ink '151'.
