Note
N. Michels and others (ed.), Die Chalcographische Gesellschaft Dessau. Catalogue 1996 Nos. 102-107. UCBA III, 524. Not in the Berlin catalogue and in Cicognara. Scarce publication by the Chalcographischen Gesellschaft in Dessau produced 1796 onwards and limited to only 200 copies which didn’t sell very well (in 1800 only six copies had been sold !). Around 1804 the remainders were bought by the Weimarian publisher Bertuch. Issued in three separate instalments with separate titles. This is the second instalment. A beautiful copy printed on thick paper.
