WINCKELMANN, Johann Joachim (1717-1768) - Monumenti antichi inediti spiegati ed illustrati. Rome: Carlo Mordacchini, 1821. An uncut copy. Winckelmann, the most famous antiquary of his day, considered this book the culmination of his career, outlining his mythological interpretations of previously unpublished monuments and decisively linking the disciplines of philology and art history. The introduction comprises a meditation on beauty, arguing for the superiority of the Greek imagination as the key to Classical art. It was prepared in Italian in hope of a larger buying audience, forcing Winckelmann to censor some of his references to male homosexuality. In the year following its publication at his expense, the author was brutally stabbed to death in Trieste. Despite its historical inaccuracies, the book was received with interest in later decades by those enamored by Winckelmann's life and legend and provided a major influence on the study of art history. 4 parts in 2 volumes divided in 2 tomes, folio (450 x 288mm). Half-title in volume one, titles with engraved vignettes, an unnumbered plate and 208 numbered plates, some full-page or folding, others of a smaller size with multiple images on the same sheet, elegant engraved headpieces (marginal dampstaining sometimes touching plates, occasional light foxing, plate 137 soiled on verso and 138 on recto). Modern half leather, spine decorated in gilt, uncut (light rubbing). (2)
