Note: The prints are possibly a later state or a copy of Callot's etchings from the suite titled Capricci di varie figure, that was first published in Florence around 1617, and later again in Nancy. The impression of the suite does not comprise the second plate, dedicated to Lorenzo de' Medici. Most of the prints are numbered in arabic at the upper left 1-46. Plate 46 depicts a fireworks display in Florence over the Arno; Bound in the volume are also copies or impressions of the etchings from the suite titled Balli di sfessania. The figures are reversed and differently combined. The backgrounds have been eliminated, the characters' names appear above them rather than below, and the prints are numbered 1-12 at lower right. There is no title, imprint or date; The prints of both suites are mounted over windows cut in leaves of wove paper, bound in tan goatskin. The vol. is tooled in gilt along the margins of the boards, on the edges of boards and on the turn-ins. Spine tooled in gilt with author & title: CALLOT. CAPRICCI DI VARIE FIGURE. Page edges gilt; Inscription on 2nd front free endpaper recto to Ralph D. Kerr by J. Gaisford(?), dated Aug. 11, 1870.
