ROGERS, Charles (1711-1784). A Collection of Prints in Imitation of Drawings to which are annexed Lives of their Authors. London: Printed by J. Nichols, and sold by John Boydell, Benjamin White, and Peter Molini, 1778.

First edition of a fine series of prints after old masters including Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Rubens, and Van Dyck. Rogers commissioned some of the leading engravers of his day to replicate the style, colour and size of the original drawings.

2 volumes, folio (560 x 375mm). Two additional engraved titles by F. Bartolozzi after G.B. Cipriani and B. Rebecca, engraved dedication, mezzotint portrait of the author William Wynne Ryland after Joshua Reynolds, and 112 plates of which two are folding, the majority full-page (some light marginal soiling). Late 19th-century purple half morocco over cloth, spines gilt lettered (slightly scuffed and faded, boards a little skewed).
