Décrits et expliqués par Amaury Duval. Paris, Brunet Denon, 1829, 4 vols., 314 (col./ tinted) lithogr. plates, contemp. unif. gilt green hmor., large folio.

- Occas. foxed; a few plates sl. wrinkled. Bindings sl. worn along extremities; corners bumped.

= Rare, complete copy (one print numbered separately, but printed together with another print on one leaf (plate 192bis printed on plate 181) and one plate skipped because it was already included in a previous vol. (plate 186 = plate 111)). A work of such an enormous scope that Denon, having begun it in 1814, left it unfinished at his death in 1825. It was published posthumously in 250 copies only. Brunet II, p.598; Thieme-Becker IX, p.79.
