Payne's Royal Dresden Gallery Being a Selection of Subjects Engraved after Pictures by the Great Masters . . . Two volumes.
12 Payne's Royal Dresden Gallery Being a Selection of Subjects Engraved after Pictures by the Great Masters . . . Two volumes.
Leipzig, Germany. Published for the Proprietors A(lbert) H(enry) Payne of Dresden and Leipzig and W. French of London. Hardcover Very Good 
4to - 27.5 x 21.5 cm.; Volume I: 164 numbered pages of text with 64 steel engraved plates. Volume II: 187 numbered pages of text with 72 steel engraved plates. The title continues (after the list of the Great Masters) as: ". . . with Accompanying Notices Consisting of Tales, Biographies etc". No date of publication is given though it is in the mid to late 1840's with a one volume American edition (Appleton) produced in the early 1860's. Both volumes are half bound with a marbled paper on the boards and a dark green leather on the spines and fore corners. Six panels are present on the spines with gilt lettering in the second and third panels from the top and gilt decorations at the spine head and tail panels with a dentilled gilding on the bands. The gilding on the bands is dulled and rubbed in contrast to the rest of the spine gilding which is bright. All tissue protectors are present with the exception of the one for the "Dresden" plate facing page 4 of Volume One; it is missing. The tissue protectors for "The Madonna of St. Sixtus" plate facing page 126 of Volume One is missing a small piece of the front fore corner and the tissue protector for "The Hermit" plate facing page 100 of Volume Two has an internal tear at the top. In Volume One, an erratum should be noted that the plate "Dutch Boors" is listed as facing page 44 in the contents but actually is facing page 19. Foxing is present though restricted to the page margins with some (~10 to 15) plates showing some foxing on the blank sides though it does tend to be milder and less pronounced in these instances. The text block head edge of both volumes is gilt and retains much of the original sheen. The board edges are rubbed with loss of the marbled paper on the tail edges and the leather corners are bumped with wear and rubbing. The spine tips are similar though more so on the tail. The tail edge of the front board of Volume One is bumped in the middle. The binding is very supple with solid hinges and text block. Both volumes present well. A handsome and desirable set. Digital images of any aspect are available upon request. 19451
