‘Book of Raphael’s Madonnas’ is an illustrated study of Raphael’s Madonnas. Raphael painted a total of thirty-one different Madonnas, including Madonna with the Fish, Madonna de Cardellino, Colona Madonna, and Sistine Madonna. Raphael was still seen by 20th-century critics like Bernard Berenson as the “most famous and most loved” master of the High Renaissance. In addition to the art of Raphael, this book includes works of poetry by:

  • Poe
  • Chaucer
  • Dante
  • Goethe
  • Shelley
  • Southey
  • Tennyson

 

The North American review calls this book,

“elegantly bound and illustrated gift book … undoubtedly the most beautiful and valuable book of the season … the process by which these illustrations have been obtained give them an added value … These engravings were not copied by hand, but reproduced in phototype, and the pictures in this volume are phototypes of unsurpassed delicacy, pasted on the richly-margined and tinted leaves prepared to receive them”

 

This 1860 first edition includes 13 full-page plates tipped in photographs of engravings.
