CECCHINI, G. B. Vedute Dei Principali Monumenti Di Venezia VIEWS OF THE PRINCIPAL MONUMENTS OF VENICE

Eugenio Testolini, 1850.

First edition. Folio album with original cloth-backed blue boards and printed decoration to upper cover. Hand-coloured lithographed title page, incorporating a view of Piazza San Marco, and twelve further hand-coloured lithographed plates heightened with gum arabic and printed by Kirchmayr or Lefevre after Cecchini, Pividor and Viola. A very good copy, with slight damp staining to the front panel and foxing to the plate mounts, a couple of plates affected by areas of staining, though remaining mainly bright and clear. The remainder of the plates are extremely bright and evocative.

A fine series of views of Venice by the Venetian artists Giovanni-Battista Cecchini (1804-79), Giovanni Pividor (d. 1872) and Tommaso Viola (b. c. 1810). The lithograph plates are finely printed by LĂ©fevre each within a double blue lined border and with the delicate hand-colouring heightened with gum arabic.
