Hjalmar Mörner (1794-1837):
Il carnevale di Roma.
Rome, F. Bourlié, 1820. Oblong folio, 33,5 x 52,5 cms.  pp. of text + 20 engraved plates.
Contemporary leather-backed boards, somewhat worn, corners bumped. Light finger-soiling and creasing, very slight foxing, a few small stains, thinning of the paper to small area of the first plate.
This famous and important suite of etchings – Mörner’s graphic debut – gives 20 scenes from the carneval in Rome, starting at Piazza del Popolo and ending at the present Piazza Venezia. The original drawings were presented to Mörner’s friend and host in Rome, sculptor Johan Niclas Byström, who mounted them as a frieze in his house. A few copies of the etchings are said to have been hand-coloured by the artist. This work published in Rome in the early 1800s, would have been a perfect Grand Tour Souvenir.
