ansB6456

London, Henry Bohn, 1843. 55x36. 2 chromolithographed title leaves + 2 leaves with lists of plates + X pp. + 81 lithographed plates (including 74 tinted and 3 chromolithograph), each with one leaf with explanatory text. Rebound in fine half brown morocco with the original 19th-century spine labels reattached.

A fine set of these impressive volumes on Italian church architecture. After completing his studies at Eton and Cambridge, Henry Gally Knight (1796-1846) travelled extensively in the Mediterranean and the Near East. In Italy he was accompanied by the architectural draughtsman George Moore, who prepared most of the lithographed perspectives of early churches and chapels all over Italy, from drawings of his own and of Domenico Quaglio's and some other Italian and English artists' - an attractive view of Orvieto is from a drawing by Edward Lear. The chromolithographs (the title leaves and three plates of mosaics) were prepared by Owen Jones.
