Engraving and Etching: A Handbook for the Use of Students and Print Collectors

London: H. Grevel and Co., 1906. Third Edition. Hardcover. An essentially Fine copy of the third and best edition, and the first edition to have been translated into English (with foxing to the boards as is usual with this title and with the closed page block's top edge in gilt) in a Fine dust jacket (with some foxing to the front and rear panels as well as to the jacket's verso --- we do not know how common such foxing is to the dust jacket as this is the only jacket for this first edition that we ever have seen). Lippmann was a German art historian, served as the Director of the Kupferstichkabinett, Berlin State Museums, and was noted for his work on Dürer, Holbein and Italian 15th-century woodcuts. The New York Evening Post described this book as: "...the best concise treatise ever written about the history of intanglio prints. There are 131 illustrations on the scale of the original engravings, and while these impressions from relief-blocks inevitably lack the quality of fine engravings, they suffice to study the techniq of the artists." This third edition, issued after Lippmann's death in 1903, is a revised edition of Lippmann's work was prepared by his successor in office, Max Lehrs, contains 131 illustrations, and still wears its QUITE SCARCE early turn of the century dust jacket. QUITE SCARCE INDEED. Near fine / near fine. Item #2903
