Description:
London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, 1717. 395 x 245 mm. (15 5/8 x 9 5/8"). Seven individual engravings. LARGE, RICHLY DETAILED ENGRAVED PLATES, each with a small crest and dedication at foot to a notable contemporary woman; Mrs. Walpole, Viscountess Towshend, and the Honourable Mrs. Margaret Pelham among the dedicatees. Slight browning and fraying at edges, otherwise very well preserved, the impressions deep and fresh. The engravings on these charming leaves illustrating various books of Ovid's "Metamorphoses" are extremely animated and full of interest. The artist is not content with just one theme: each illustration contains subjects from several different legends. Among the scenes pictured are: 1) people becoming trees and Phaeton falling from his chariot in the sky; 2) Perseus flourishing the head of Medusa while Minerva chats with the Nine Muses and, in the background, the ship of Odysseus sails past the Sirens; 3) Apollo and Artemis slaying the children of the arrogant Niobe, with a vignette,… Read more
