This nice set of six hand colored aquatints titled “Paul et Virginie” were published by French engraver Charles Melchior Descourtis, Paris (1753-1820) after Frédéric-Jean Schall (1752-1825), circa 1788. Each aquatint is glued to a backboard and the set is in good condition, with some tear repairs, water stain discoloring, light soiling, imperfections, and expected wear from age and use. Dimensions: 18” h x 21 ½”, actual (one measures slightly smaller at 17 ½” h x 20 ¼” w).
