Jesus fait son entree dans la ville de Jerusalem

By [Print] Christ Enters Jerusalem

1693. Leaf. Very Good +. Folio, 26.5 x 19.2cm, handcolored engraving, from Evangelicae Historiae Imagines {"Illustrations of the Gospel Stories"). Ignatius Loyola suggested to his friend Jerome Nadal the need of commissioning a series of engraings that used perspective and annotations to draw the reader into the biblical stories, so they could become more real and of use to daily meditation. The artists for this work were the best Flemish engravers of the day including members of the Wierx family, C. de Mallory, and A. Collaert, all related to the Galle publishers of Antwerp. Most of the plates are after drawings of the Italian artist Bernardo Passari, and a few are after drawings by Martin de Vos. This engraving is from a later French edition published in Paris by Jean Baptiste Loison in 1683. A little dusty with light staining, minor scuffing.

Buffalo Hunt

By [Print] CATLIN: Buffalo Hunt

1842. Very Good. 8vo, 13.5x9.2cm, handcolored copper plate engraving from Illustrations of the Manners, Customs, and Conditions of the North American Indian. Though some plates were colored in early editions of Catlin's famous study of North American Indians in 1842, the fresh color and later date of this example suggests that it was colored at a later date. [Note: we grade conservatively and endeavor to identify any defects that might affect overall quality and price.].
