Aguafuerte - Sin firmar - 1632-1635

Les images des Saints.

Early impression from the first edition printed in Paris by Israël Henriet. Before all rework. From the earlies impression available, a second state while the first before the publishers address of Israël is only known from a few examples (R.R.R.R.)

I have a couple of leaves mostly with the watermark 'huchet' showing a post horn as called for by Lieure to be found on these early Paris impressions.

Uncut sheet with wide margins. Original pinholes on top of the sheet where the series was once bound together with a small rope still visible.

Four oval scenes showing events of saints celebrated in February;, interior with three men kneeling beside a seated Bishop (St Felix of Metz' Day); a bearded saint wearing a turban and standing in a landscape with Mount Golgotha in the background (St Joseph of Arimathea's Day); a bearded saint, hands clasped and stabbed by a soldier (St Polycarp's Day); St Matthew standing in a landscape, reading a book and holding an axe in left hand (St Matthew Evangelist's Day).
