I have here for sale a lovely collection of four genuine and original hand coloured aquatints of Russian central Asian peoples. The plates all come from the famous book by Pallas entitledTravels through the Southern Provinces of the Russian Empire in the years 1793 and 1794. This was published by Longman in 1802. The plates are all in colour, all with tissue guards, all mounted on card with separate card backing, enabling the back of each plate to be viewed.
Male with pipe and female in national dress - Plate 7
Two well armed men - Vol I, plate 22
Man with pipe, woman with huge sack - cannot make out the plate number, but there appears to be a faint mark along the pipe held by the man
Cossack warrior - I cannot make out the plate details but it may say 'Pl 10'
Card mount  measures 35 cm by 25 cm; and the colour plates measure 18 cm x 14 cm.
Separately I also have another 'lot' of five Pallas plates.
From St Petersburgh eastwards, to Astrakhan, the Caspian Sea, thence to the Caucasus Mountains, the Crimea, and back to St. Petersburg. Pallas covers the ethnology, costumes, flora, fauna, geology, topography and commerce of the southern provinces of Russia. Tooley called the work "an extremely charming colour plate book ... It deserves a place in every colour plate collection for its numerous attractive coloured vignettes, an unusual feature." Abbey Travel
222; Tooley 357.
