There are are no markings inside the book. The pages are just beginning to yellow an tan. "Giovanni Domenico Theopolo's set of twenty-seven etchings entitled Picturesque Ideas of the Flight into Egypt is perhaps the most enchanting of his printmaking accomplishments. Within the history of printed scenes of Christ's life, which began in the fifteenth century, this series is probably unique in format; there is no other depiction known of the Flight into Egypt in such an extended sequence.Beyond this novel aspect, the set reveals the inspiration of Tiepolo's native Venice-her sunny skies and sparkling lagoons, her passion for theatrical spectacles, her artistic heritage of pageant masters. The joyous effects of light, space, and air in these prints reflect the achievements of the eighteenth-century Venetian etchers whose characteristic broken lines captured their city's shimmering atmosphere." - Picturesque Ideas of the Flight into Egypt
