Description

This set of six copper plate engravings was designed and engraved by Jean Le Pautre (1618-1682), whom the Getty Museum calls “the most important and imaginative ornament engraver of the seventeenth century.”  The prints were designed and published as a set of six, and are described in a cartouche on Plate 1 - "Panaux d'ornements nouvellements inventee et graves par Le Pautre. Se vendent chez P. Mariette a Paris Rue St Jacques a L'Esperance Avec Privilege dy Roy"

The set was originally published, as described by Pierre Mariette le fils in the 17th century, but this set may be from Jombert's definitve 1751 edition of Le Pautre's works.  The prints are very good impressions on thin chain laid paper.  They are hand coloured - the Jombert edition was published without hand colour, it is not clear whether this set is later colouring. 

Condition is excellent, with full margins.  A very good set of rare prints.
