Frontispiece & 32 illustrations on 31 plates. + 46 pp. (including 12 figures). Full leather. 29 x 20 cm. PLUS a double suite of the 6 original etchings (12 total) loose in blue cloth folding case. All housed in 1/4-leather & blue cloth clamshell case. Very fine. **Copy XII of only 25 copies containing the double suite of 6 original etchings in their first and only public edition (plus 125 copies with the single suite). The three double-sided copper plates from which the plates were printed passed from Goya's grandson Mariano to John Savile Lumley, then to Colnaghi, from whom Philip Hofer acquired them in the 1930s. He, in turn, gave them in 1970 to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, after the present edition of 150 sets had been printed. The Museum's policies absolutely prohibit any further edition. The few proofs pulled by earlier owners are scrupulously described in Eleanor Sayre's superb catalogue. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.
