First Edition. quarto, printed wrappers. (50)pp. Olivetti, Item #320
Illustrated. An interesting discussion in the introduction on the use of watermarks for help in dating old master drawings from the sixteenth century, or help, in fact, in ascribing a drawing to an artist. The dictionary reproduces watermark, location and date with a reference to similar watermarks found in Briquet or Zonghi. Very fine, clean.
