This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1885 edition. Excerpt: ... I. Adoration of the Magi, The. N. Pouss1n pinx Dimensions, 18J x 13. This.and the portrait of Joan of Aragon, No. 12, are the only plates in the Musee Royal or Musee Francais on which Raphael Morghen worked.
