NINETEENTH CENTURY VIEWS OF VENICE

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 Léfevre each within a double blue lined border and with the delicate hand-colouring heightened with gum arabic.
