ALBERTOLLI, Giocondo (1742--1839)
Miscellanea per i giovani studiosi del disegno publicata da Giocondo Albertolli professore ... Parte terza.
Milano si ritrova presso allo stesso Albertolli in Milano, 1796.
Engr. t.-pl., engr. dedic., XX pl. ; 55.4 cm. (1°)

Dedication dated 'Milano li 2. Aprile 1796'. Plates XIV, XV, XVII and XVIII were drawn by Albertolli's son Rafaello. Plates XII and XIII each bear the impressions of two separate coppers. 'Parte terza' suggests that this collection of large scale studies after nature and the antique was intended to form part of a series with Albertolli's two earlier collections, Ornamenti diversi, [1782] (q.v.) and Alcune decorazioni, 1787 (q.v.) and is often, as here, bound with later copies of those collections, probably as issued. BAL, Early printed books, no. 63; Berlin Kat. 596.

Copy Notes Bound (2) with a later issue of Ornamenti diversi (q.v.) and a later edition of Alcune decorazioni (q.v.).

Binding Later C19th half calf, blind-tooled borders, gilt double-rule and blind roll-tooled spine with dark blue morocco spine-label; possibly replacing earlier binding supplied or repaired for 9s. (see payment to Josiah Taylor on 12 June 1804, Priv. Corr. XVI.E.1).

Reference Number 1586
