508 # # $a The first frontispiece is signed as drawn by Reichel and engraved by Sanders; the second, as drawn by Gerard and engraved by Sanders. The two title-plates are signed as scripted and engraved by Sanders. Most numbered plates are signed by their draughtsmen (Reichel, Choustow, Scotnikow, Michailow, Yacowlof (or Jacoblew or Yacoblow), Glovatchevsky, Sokolow), and all are signed by their engravers (Sanders (or J. Saunders), Scotnikow, Kollmann, Podolinsky). Most plates in Vol. I are also signed as directed by Labensky.

The work is dedicated by F.X. Labensky to the Emperor Alexander I.

520 2 # $a The publication-date of 1805 is given on both the French title-plates and on the Russian title-page of Volume I; but the publication-date of the Russian title-page of Volume II is that of 1809. The work appears to have been published serially: the tables of plates state that the first volume was issued as 9 cahiers in three livraisons, and the second volume as six cahiers in three livraisons.

The half-titles read, 'Description De La Galerie De L'Hermitage. Tome Premier. (Second.)'. The Russian titles read, 'Ermitazhnaia Gal(l)ereia Gravirovannaia shtrichami ... Camilem Urozhentsem' Zhenevscim'. S' Frantsuzcago perevel' Sergii Glinka (Pavel Titov) ... i izdano F.I. Labenscim'. Tom' Pervuii (Vtoroi) ... Alitsiia ... v' Tipographii Shnora, MDCCCV (pechatano pri Senatscoi Tipographii, MDCCCIX.)'.

The text is given in French and Russian (apart from the half-titles, which are in French only). Each language has its own text-pagination.

The work shows and describes a selection of paintings from one of the most celebrated European collections, that of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. The imperial collections were begun by Peter I, greatly enlarged by Catherine II and continued by Alexander I and Nicolas I.

The frontispieces show portraits of Empress Catherine II (vol.I) and Emperor Alexander I (vol. II). The numbered plates show paintings by: Raphael (2 plates), Rubens (3), Poussin (6), Rembrandt (2), F. Albani (2), Leonardo, S. del Piombo, S. Mieris, Correggio (2), Domenichino, S. Rosa (4), Veronese (2), Van Dyck (9), P. Potter, E. Le Sueur (4), F. Barocchi, Guido (5), Ann. Carracci (2), C. Maratta (2), Murillo, S. Bourdon, Claude, Perugino, C.
