Description: From a later edition of the complete works of Deuchar (A Collection of etchings after the most eminent Masters ..., first published in 1803.) This ed. which varies quite a bit from the earlier version, with less prints, but many more prints by Deuchar himself and others, we estimate was printed around 1870. The original work, was printed in a limited number for Deuchar's art friends. As such they are quite scarse. The date in our titles is the date the etchings were originally etched.

Artists and Engravers: Made by 'David Deuchar' after 'Stefano della Bella'. David Deuchar (1743-1808) worked as an engraver and etcher in Edinburgh. Stefano Della Bella (1610-1664) originated from Florence and was later active as a graphic artist in Paris. He produced a wide variety of prints, with all kinds of subjectmatter. His prints were very popular and widely copied by printpublishers.
