L'ARETIN D'AUGUSTIN CARRACHE, ou Recueil... - Lot 11 - Gros & Delettrez
L'ARETIN D'AUGUSTIN CARRACHE, ou Recueil de Postures érotiques, d'après les Gravures à l'eau forte, par cet Artiste célèbre, avec le texte explicatif des Sujets. New edition with colored figures. A la Nouvelle Cythère, s.d. [1798 ?]. In-16, full lavalier calf, large cold plate on covers framed by cold roulette and gilt fillet, slightly faded ornate ribbed spine, chased edges, interior roulette and gilt edges (Romantic binding). 174 pp., 20 finely colored engraved plates. Extremely rare edition, which Pia cites only from a note drawn up by Louis Perceau in 1935, which completed the catalog of l'Enfer that he drew up with Apollinaire and Fleuret in 1913. This edition was probably donated by Didot, who published another in 1798 in 4° format, with 20 plates by Coiny after Carracci, of which these are fine reductions. The text is by Simon-Célestin Croze-Magnan. Minor rubbing on the nerves, light wetness in the lower margin. Cohen, 88; Gay I, 261; Pia, 85. A charming copy of one of the most remarkable erotica of the 18th century, here with finely colored figures.
