18.5 x 13.5 cm plate, mounted to 23.5 x 16 cm leaf. One of 1000 copies published of the Aquarelle Edition of The Library of Choice Literature and Encyclopidia of Universal Authorship, the 10-volume set was edited by Ainsworth R. Spofford and Charles Gibbon. "The photogravure illustrations form a gallery of art exclusively devoted to the representation of literature, such as has never been seen till now; and these pictures, by the best artists of all nations, conclusively prove the importance of the editors' selections from literature, because the paintings were made for the text, not the text for the paintings, and the great modern painters confirm the good judgement of the editors in their selection of great masterpieces."
