KLENZE, Leo von (1784-1864). Die Schönsten Überbleibsel Griechischer Ornamente der Glyptik, Plastik und Malerei. Parts I-II. Munich: Unger, 1823. 2° (530 x 460mm). 11 (?of 12) engraved plates, 2 of these hand-coloured. (Light mostly marginal spotting.) Loose as issued in the original printed paper wrappers for Part II, with the front wrapper of Part I laid-in (light wear). In a 20th-century green cloth chemise together with the item below. IN THE ORIGINAL PRINTED WRAPPERS, a remarkable survival. The present set comprises the first two parts of a series of apparently only four published. The wrappers suggest that 8 parts were intended, published at 6fl. 18kr. each. In Germany KVK locates copies of Parts I-II at Kassel University Library, and Parts I-IV at Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich.

In Germany KVK locates only one copy of Part III, at Kassel University Library. RARE: neither JAP nor ABPC record copies of either work selling at auction.
