Originally consisting of 208 numbered plates on about 120 pages (plates 12-13, 23-26, 65-68, 76-78, 128-129, 160, 172, 180, and 185-190 are missing from this folio). Engraved numbered plates include images of Greek and Roman antiquities including freizes, urns, human figures, architecture, and weapons. Included with this lot are 7 additional plates of the same style and era but which do not appear to be from this publication. Pages measure 17" x 11 1/2". Plate sizes vary from 2" x 3" to 16" x 10 1/2". (Additional high-resolution photos are available at www.caseantiques.com)


Pages unbound with worn edges; old red covers in poor condition. Several pages have staining or foxing, but many stains are in the margins, leaving the plates unaffected.
