Paris, Pierre-Jean Mariette, 1744. Single sheet (27.0 x 20.0 cm) on thick laid paper with a fine engraving – in very nice hand-colouring – by Jacques Coelemans. Printed surface ca. 24 x 19 cm. In modern passe partout with salmon linen cover. An excellent print from a work by the French (Aix-en-Provence) lawyer and engraver Jean-Baptiste Boyer, Marquis d’Éguilles, or Aguilles (1650-1709) and the Flemish engraver Jacques Coelemans (1654-1735), Recueil d'estampes d'après les tableaux des peintres les plus célèbres d'Italie, des Pays-Bas et de France . It was first published in Aix, in 1709, and republished in 1744 (see Brunet). The colouring is well done. Hand-coloured copies must be rare and are not recorded by Brunet. We assume this plate to be from the second edition, as the first is extremely rare. Of the second edition, only a handful of copies were auctioned after WWII. Margins unevenly trimmed, very slight soiling, but otherwise in a very good condition; the printing and colouring strong. Brunet 2, p. 122. An excellent engraving from a rare work
