2 volumes in 4, demi-reliure à coins. xii 240 [3], [4] 240 [4] pages. Texte en français et italien, 240 gravures en couleurs. Rare première édition richement illustrée de ce livre de référence pour les peintres et sculpteurs du XIX. 2 folio volumes, modern half binding, raised bands, top edge guilt,  pp. xii 240 [3]; [4] 240 [4]; parallel text in French and Italian; hand-colored aquatint frontispiece and 240 hand-colored aquatint plates. Rare first edition of this magnificently illustrated emblematic model book for painters and sculptors. Each of the two volumes of Pistrucci's work contains 120 models or icons, illustrated with a corresponding full-page etched plate partly printed in colors and finished with aquatint. As Pistrucci notes in his preface, the coloring (a particular shade of green said to represent envy) is a significant component of the work, as his descriptions often refer to a specific color associated with each icon.  This advantage is lacking in all other editions of the Iconologia so far published.
