Details
Isidore Stanislas Henri Helman (1743-1806)
Faits Mémorables des Empereurs de la Chine
24 engraved plates, published Paris: chez l'Auteur and M. Ponce, [1788] unframed
S. 17 x 23¼in. (43.2 x 59cm.)
This series of engravings, which illustrate the memorable acts of the emperors of China, are after the original Chinese drawings (according to Cohen/De Ricci, by P. Jésuite Attiret), held in the Cabinet du Roi. Large plates were engraved on the orders of the Emperor, and distributed only in China. Only a few rare proofs remained in Europe, and it was after these that Helman engraved these reduced versions.
Special Notice

No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 17.5% will be added to the buyer's premium, which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.
