[Cofre de Perote, Mexico] From From Giulio Ferrario’s Il Costume Antico e Moderno. Florence, 1821. Aquatint by Fumagalli. 8 1/4 x 11. Original hand color. Very good condition.
Giulio Ferrario was founder of the Società tipografica de’ classici italiani and served as the director of the Braidense National Library in Milan. Beginning in 1821, he issued a multi-volume work on the “Ancient and Modern Costumes: The history of the government, the militia, the religion, the arts and sciences, and the customs of all people ancient and modern.” This included a number of excellent views based on various artists. This print is a lovely view of the Cofre de Perote volcano in the Mexican state of Veracruz.
