Recueil De Trentes Sujets, Paysages, Ruines, Animaux, Pastorales Et Divers Sujets Champêtres, Composés Et Dessinés Par Nic. Berghem, Peintre Hollandais, Né En 1624, Mort En 1683. Cet habile Peintre travailla successivement sous Vangoyen, Meyaer, Grebber et Woenninx, qu'il surpassa. La richesse de la composition, le charme du coloris, les effets piquants de lumière, l'esprit avec lequel il peignait les Animaux, sont les qualités qu'on remarque dans ses Ouvrages. L'on a ajouté, à cette intéreollection, dix Planches gravées par Wischer; cinq d'après Laer, et les cinq autres d'après Wouvermans.

The first four plates following the title-page are numbered 1-4 - the first carrying the caption in the plate, 'Diversa Animalia Quadrupedia', signed as designed by Berghem, and engraved by J. Vischer, the rest unsigned. The second four pl. are numbered 1-4, the first signed as drawn by Berghem, engraved by J. Vischer and printed by Nicolaus Vischer, the rest unsigned. The next four pl. are unnumbered, but captioned below the plate as 'Aurora', 'Meridies', 'Vesper' and 'Nox', and all signed as drawn by Berghem, engraved by J. Vischer and printed by Justus Danckerts. The next two are unnumbered; both signed as painted by Nicolaus P. Berghem, made by Joannes de Vischer and printed by Nicolaus Vischer. The next five are unnumbered; all signed as painted by Berghem, engraved by Dancker Danckerts and printed by Nicolai Vischer. The next one is unnumbered; signed as painted by Berghem, engraved by J.

Summary Note

No publication-date is given on the title page; but 'Jean, Marchand D'Estampes' was partner of L.J. Mondhare, and operated alone from Mondhare's address at rue Saint-Jean-de-Beauvais when Mondhare ceased to be active, ca. 1792.

Binding Note

19th-century half green morocco, marbled-papered boards; spine lettered 'Gravure De Berghem'.
