Antonio Mariæ Zanetto Hieronymi filio viro picturæ, & antiquitatis studiosissimo. Secundas has decem et octo tabulas, olim a Marco Ricio Bellunensi pictore egregio inventas, et modo lineis, modo coloribus expressas, nunc vero a Juliano Giampiccolo ære ductas Bartholomæus Zucconius collector in suæ æstimationis specimen. ...
[Venice, c. 1755?].
Engr. dedic. t.-pl., 18 pl. ; 35.5 x 50.3 cm. (obl. blank_page2°)

Landscape and genre paintings, some featuring classical ruins, etched after Ricci by Giuliano Giampiccolo sometime between 1753 and the latter's death in 1762 (not 1759). The plates are numbered as a second series to accompany an earlier one dedicated by the publisher Zucconi to (Consul) Joseph Smith (q.v.).

Copy Notes Bound (and probably issued) with a copy of the first series dedicated to Joseph Smith (q.v.). The two series bound second and third with a copy of the suite of Ricci's own etchings published by Orsolini in 1730 (q.v.) and another suite of etchings after Ricci published in 1743 by Davide Antonio Fossati (q.v.). The volume was bought from the Adam Sale, 21 May 1818, lot 92 for £2. (A.T. Bolton, Adam (1922), appendix C, p. 331).

Binding Contemporary C18th half vellum, red morocco spine-label lettered 'Ricci'.
