Drawings mounted, framed by narrow gold strips. Binding: Nineteenth century. Red, straight-grained goatskin, gold-tooled, with light blue, watered silk doublures and flyleaves. Possibly bound by one of the Bozerians (Paris, 1793-1817), but the foot of the spine where their signature usually appears was destroyed in rebacking. Gilt edges.
Manuscript on paper of an album of 105 water-color drawings of Italian costumes and scenes of daily life (some with titles), including two maps of Venice.
