Sébastien Le Clerc & Charles Alphonse du Fresnoy - Figures d'Académie pour aprendre à désiner gravées par S.L.C. Préc. de L'Art de peinture - 1673/1684

In-8, contemporary full sheepskin, rubbed, spine with raised bands, split joints, caps missing, blunted corners, verse work in pages 99 to 120, dampness in the upper part of the first few pages, I: Paris , Langlois, 1684, 276 pp., 15 table papers; II: Paris, Langlois, 1673, 30 engraved plates

If the Art of painting by Du Fresnoy as a "bestseller" of his time is relatively common, Le Clerc's treatise on drawings is much rarer. It is possible, if not probable, that the origin of this rarity is linked to the cutting up of the engravings to be sold individually and this, practically since the publication of the work.
