Printed on Rives vellum. Number 144 of the 175 printed as described above. Total edition was 429.
Published by Editions Eryx 1950. The complete text of the edition princeps 1734.
Cover and case in luxurious velvet texture, in blue with gold lettering
Very good condition. Dryoints are excellent. Some fading to the outside case and to the main spine and some rubbing to the outside case.
These drypoints are a wonderful showcase for Becat's etching work within a beautifully produced and printed collector's edition. One of the greatest illustrators in magnificent form. 15 drypoint etchings, plus an additional suite of the 15 with remarques, with the addition of a 'planche refusée' which is in versions both sanguin and noir and is one of his most tenderly sensual and romantic images (the main image shown here). 32 etchings altogether.
