Contemporary blue glazed paper boards, rebacked. Boards with borders tooled in gilt. Boards with some minor rubbing and spine with a few tiny tears. Previous owner's old ink ownership inscription dated 1829 to rear pastedown. Engravings are extremely clean and bright. Overall a near fine copy. Housed in a modern blue cloth clamshell with morocco spine label, lettered in gilt.

This is the rare first edition of this book which was meant as an artist manual depicting street vendors and other laborers such as fish mongers, wig makers and musicians, many of which are women, by Perkois who was a Dutch art teacher from the Drawing Academy in Middleburg, and Prins who was the secretary of the art society Pictura in The Hague. The engraver, Sallieth, from Rotterdam, is known mostly for his maritime views. There have been very few copies of this first edition at auction, and even fewer that are hand-colored.
