Second illustrated edition of Ehrensvärd's famous and beautiful account of his journey to Italy, first published in a small edition in 1786. Count Carl August Ehrensvärd (1745-1800) was an Admiral of the Fleet but also an art historian, writer, artist and architect. He travelled extensively throughout Europe and to Egypt and Turkey. He visited Italy to study the landscape and people, but especially the art and architecture of the classical era. He stayed for some time in Rome but became particularly fond of Naples and Sicily. The beautiful hand-coloured illustrations rendered in delicate pastel colours are drawn by Ehrensvärd himself and engraved by Elias Martin, renowned Swedish artist. This edition was published by Fredric Boye and the original etchings were used. Lindberg, Swedish books 52.
