Valenciennes, Lemaitre, 1846, 2e edition (second edition), in-8°, lithographed portrait frontispiece + viii pp + 569 pp, index, bound in contemporary half leather, two labels on raised spine, some slight foxing but a fine copy. Rare second edition printed in an unspecified small number. The first edition was published in Brussels in 1808 in two volumes. The author (Maastricht 1743-1818) chose a medical career and became a member of the Académie de Bruxelles. In this long study he deals with the formation of a painting collection and its technical aspects such as cleaning , restoration, safeguarding against deterioration etc. He also discusses the merits of different schools of paintings and e.g. the system that ''de Piles'' had devised to judge the quality of paintings. He was one of the first to rehabilitate the 17th century Dutch School of painting which was all but forgotten in the 18th century.
