The School of Raphael; or, The student's guide to expression in historical painting. Illustrated by examples engraved by Duchange, and others, under the inspection of Sir Nicholas Dorigny, from his own drawings, after the most celebrated heads in the Cartons at the Queen's Palace. To which are now added, the outlines of each head, and also several plates of the most celebrated antique statues, skeletons ... (Second edition.) Folio. Printed for John Boydell. 1782
8, [i], 6-21, [i]. 102 plates, numbered I-XII, 1-45 with an additional 45 unnumbered plates made up of the 'celebrated heads' in outline only; largely inoffensive damp mark to lower margin of most plates, affecting the image of plates II, VI, & VII. 19th century half dark blue calf; sl. rubbing.
¶ESTC N36284, which records Sir John Soane's Museum only in British Isles and four copies only in North America, does not mention the 45 unnumbered plates in its collation. Copac records additional copies at Oxford, the Courtauld and Edinburgh, the last two including an additional engraved titlepage in English and French. Soane's copy is as recorded by ESTC with no engraved titlepage. It appears that this title was issued in different formats, with and without the additional unnumbered plates. A separate publication in landscape format, with an engraved titlepage in French and English and including the additional unnumbered 45 plates was also issued by Boydell, probably in 1782. This publication, entitled Recueil de XC têtes tirées des sept cartons des actes des apôtres peints par Ralph was first published in 1722.
