Good, with scuffing & chipping to spine, several small library stamps, light foxing (age darkened spotting). From Preface: This book contains a catalogue of the painters in each of the schools of the several states of Italy, arranged according to the names of the masters under whom they studied, and the time at which they lived: the places where their chief works may be found is also given, together with the year of their birth or death. To each catalogue is subjoined, a compendious history of the school, pointing out the distinctions of the various styles and manners of painting, which successively prevailed; and interspersed with some biographical anecdotes of the artists themselves. A few observations on the present state of this art have been added, and a short account of sculpture as related to the art of painting. The storia pittorica of the Abbe Lanzi...has been made the foundation of this work: many other writers have been consulted, and some observations, made in a recent tour of Italy, have been also embodied.
