Incisioni e Disegni. 1. La Campagna Romana Nelle Acqueforti Degli Olandesi e dei Fiamminghi del Secolo Decimosettimo

£175.00

Product description

Engravings and drawings. 1. The Roman Countryside in Etchings from Dutch and Flemish Artists of the Seventeenth Century. A very unusual set of papers held within an intriguing case. The case is grey mix cloth covered stiff card 42cm x 33cm. On the front are titles in Italian and a tipped in reproduction of an etching. On the reverse of the front cover is an ex-libris plate from Henry and Gwen Melchett (2nd Baron & Lady Melchett). Internally the covering is of a beige mix paper covering stiff card. The three internal covers have cloth hinges and open up to contain loose papers which can be removed. There is a 12 page text in Italian which appears to discuss a series of artists of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The front has some tanning near the left edge and some light foxing near the right edge; the back has some tanning along the fold. In addition there are 17 separate sheets of etchings by a number of artists of the period: Ian Van Noordt (1), Pieter Van Laer (4), Bartholomaus Breenbergh (1), Nicolas Berchem (1), Ian Both (5), Karel Dujardin (3) and Ian Fyt (2). Some have very light foxing. Included are a few brass rubbings and a three page Lenten Indult dated 1856, text in English, which was given in London by Cardinal Wiseman and appointed to be read in churches.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
