Callot’s Etchings (page 1/2)

details...

Some images taken from Callot’s Etchings; this is a collection of reproductions of Callot’s 17th century etchings edited by Howard Daniel. The book was published in Britain and Canada in 1974; the text is still in copyright, but the images themselves are long out of copyright. I have given the collection an arbitrary incorrect date of 1635 so that it sorts into a useful place in the list of books by date.
