[engraved by Giacomo Aliprandi and James Prand after Giacomo Beys and Jean-Jacques-François Lebarbier, 1794-1802]
Six stipples, each sheet approx. 390 x 285mm (15¼ x 11¼"). Trimmed inside platemark; collector's stamp of Reverend J. Burleigh James verso of all but one.
Series of French Revolutionary subjects published over several years, and while bearing English text and London publication dates were probably produced in Italy (Giacomo Aliprandi, for instance, is not known to have worked in England). Aliprandi's prints were copied after stipples by artists such as Bartolozzi, and presented as published in England to capitalize on the vogue for English prints. Once in the collection of Reverend J. Burleigh James of Knowbury Park, Shropshire. An important collector of prints of all schools and periods, James' collection of prints by Rembrandt and Dürer was particularly notable.
L.1425; for the two Robespierre plates offered together, see ref. 19974.
