Condition Report

Un'opera molto rara apparsa di rado nelle aste. Roethlisberger I, 71. 'have formed the image of Claude for their century'. Nella prima parte Lewis racconta di aver riprodotto disegni originali di Claude, che sono stati portati da Madrid dal signor Binda, acquisito da Richard Payne Knight e lasciato in eredità al British Museum 'none of them have been before engraved'. La terza parte era dedicata al Duca del Devonshire; tra gli inclusi al lavoro c'era John Constable.
