Zeichnungen nach dem gemeinen Volke besonders der Kaufruf in Wien. Etudes prises dans le bas peuple et principalement les cris de Vienne, 1775. Vienna: T. Mollo, [c. 1775].
An attractive copy, beautifully coloured including all backgrounds; the very rare later issue of Johann Christian Brand's Viennese street-cries. These very fine plates are titled in German and French and bear the name L. Brand, together with that of his engravers. This issue contains nine new plates: 1. 'Cocher de Place'; 37. 'Le Marchand de figures de pltre; 43. 'Parapluie! Parasol!'; 44. 'Fendeur de bois', all by K. Ponheimer; 13. Ravaudeux de poles' by F. Assner, dated 1781; 17. 'Une Cuisinire' and 45. 'Lanternier', by S. and J.E. Mansfeld respectively; 8. 'Fille de Chambre' by A. Bartsch replaces 'Servante' by Mark; and 33. 'La petite Poste' by H. Benedicti replaces the same title by S. Mansfeld. 'Escalvon qui vend des nattes' and 'Bouquetire', both present in the 1775 issue, are dropped here. Brand's new designs have a noticeably stronger emphasis on landscape and architectural detail. The title page is rarely seen, and is lacking in most copies. Beall Austria O-5; Bobins II, 432; Colas 423; Lipperheide Ebb1-2; Vinet 2167; Rahir 342.

Folio (485 x 360mm). Engraved title, border hand-coloured, 45 engraved plates coloured by a contemporary hand, within pen line and grey wash borders, tissue guards, some deckle edges (engraved title slightly soiled in upper margin, with repairs to two tiny marginal tears on verso, very minor soiling to margins of one plate). Contemporary half red morocco over straight grained red paper boards, spine gilt ruled in compartments (head and tail of spine and corners expertly restored).
