About This Item

Rome: Commissione Vinciana, 1949. First printing. 15 x 21.25 inches; 25-page booklet plus 60 plates (printed boards) containing a total of 133 mounted lithographic reproductions in color and black-and-white, housed in printed folding card and cloth portfolio. Published in an edition of 500 numbered copies.

Booklet with toning to edges of cover and very mild bump to one corner, otherwise very good; boards age-toned and with occasional corner bumps or creases, but still very good; reproductions all very fine (with the exception of very minor and unobtrusive waviness where two of the reproductions are tipped to their boards). Portfolio age toned and worn at folds, with one flap partially detached, but all ribbon ties intact and still functional.

Fascicolo VI (volume 6) of the series of reproductions of Da Vinci manuscripts and drawings published over the course of several decades by the Italian Ministry of Education.

Most of the drawings reproduced in this volume, which date from the end of 1499 through 1519, reside in the renowned collection at Windsor Castle, though others are (or were) in London and Paris — such as the famous portrait of Isabella d’Este Gonzaga at the Louvre, sometimes put forward as the sitter for the Mona Lisa, which is the first reproduction in the volume. There are quite a few of the much-discussed studi cataclismi (the “deluge drawings”) in this volume, among other typical subjects (battles, anatomical and motion studies, machines, animals, and so on).

(Given its dimensions and weight, this portfolio is likely to incur significant shipping charges.)
