Biflium, drop-head title, dated '24th June, 1825' at head. Verso of second leaf blank. A follow-up to the same team of artists' collection of lithographs of the Galerie de son altesse royale, Madame le duchesse de Berry published in 1822, this latest in the long genealogy of reproductions of 'Raphael's Bible' was available to subscribers in thirteen monthly parts, price 10 shillings each ('or on India Paper, Fifteen Shillings'). It includes a list of the contents of the seven parts so far published ('the Eighth will be delivered the beginning of next Week') and an interim list of subscribers. The latter is notable for the absence of any well-known artists' names, the architect John Nash being a solitary exception.

Binding Loose bifolium.
