The book for which these proofs were intended is: 'Images des Heros et grands Hommes de l'Antiquite.', by Giovanni Angelo Canini. The French edition, with the plates by Picart and Vallet, was first published in Amsterdam: B.Picart & J.F. Bernard, 1731. The original edition was published in Rome, 1669.Artists and Engravers: Engravers associated with this print are: Etienne Picart and Guillaume Vallet. Etienne Picart (1632-1721) was a Parisian engraver and print publisher. He was trained in Paris, but from 1655 to 1661 worked in Rome, together with Vallet. Afterwards they returned to Paris, where they were admitted to the Academie Royale de Peinture et Sculpture. He emigrated to Amsterdam later in life. Guillaume Vallet (1632-1704) was a friend of Picart's; they stayed and worked in Paris together.

Size (in inch): The overall size is ca. 5.9 x 8.7 inch. The image size is ca. 3.9 x 5.3 inch.
