In a dark brown new quarter morocco binding, spine with 5 raised bands and red title label, cloth covered boards, new end papers . John Baptist Jackson (1701-1754) trained as a wood engraver before traveling to Paris and, finally, to Venice where he became proficient in the chiaroscuro woodcut technique printed in several colours. He is noted chiefly for his major work comprising 24 chiaroscuro woodcuts after paintings by Venetian masters made from 1739 to 1743 and published in Venice in a bound volume in 1745, now considered one of the greatest examples of 18th-century print-making. When Jackson returned to London in 1745 he stopped producing his woodcuts and instead began to work in textile and wallpaper patterning. These efforts did not succeed and he issued a book in 1754 entitled An Essay on the Invention of Engraving and Printing in Chiaro Oscuro, but did not produce any further work .
