Berain Ornemens: 100 Planches principales de l'ŒUVRE complet de JEAN BERAIN, 1649-1711, exact and clear facsimiles in portfolio,
Brivois (Jules) Bibliographie des Ouvrages illustrés du XIXe Siècle, principalement des livres a gravures sur bois; containing descriptions of the most beautiful editions of Bourdin, Charpentier, L. Conquet, Curmer, Dubocher, Fournier, Hetzel, Jouaust, Lemerre, Perrotin, Quantin, P. Rouquette, and of the Société des Amis des livres, etc. 468 pages, sewed, large 8vo. £1.
It is two years since this work was announced to appear in 1880. At this time the author intended to describe only the most remarkable works illustrated with woodcuts. The volume would not have contained more than 300 pp.
Cellini (Benvenuto), ORFEVRE, MÉDAILLEUR SCULPTEUR-recherches sur sa Vie, sur son Œuvre, et sur les pièces qui lui sont attribuées, par EUGÈNE PLON, 415 pages, impl. 4to. with 100 engravings, of which 82 are full-page illustrations, sewed, £2. 5s; half bound, £3. 3s
It is the only authority on Cellini, discriminating between the "attributions" and "Euvres authentiques" in a most artistic and scientific manner-it is simply invaluable.
The author of "Thorwaldsen" is amply capable of the work he has undertaken, while in type and lavishness of illustration it is as beautiful a work as has been published.
