The original engravings offered here are from the 1722 (2nd) French edition of a work by Bernard deMontfaucon entitled "L'Antiquite Expliquee et Representee en Fiqures" (Antiquity explained and represented in
sculptures.) The engravings were rendered by artists of the
House of Pierre Giffart
in Paris and depict various artifacts and monuments of the ancient world.
All the works have a sheet size of 10 x 15 in. and a plate (image) size
of 7 x 13 in.
The paper is hand-laid and exhibits some browning on
the edges that does not extend into the image area. Any other defects are noted
in the detailed descriptions of the individual plates. The scans are MORE than
honest. The scanning process has enhanced the browning and other minor defects
that are not as apparent in the original.
