New York: Philip Hofer, 1971. Slim small folio, 46 pp. With a frontispiece and 32 illustrations. Original full brown morocco by Arno Werner, the extra suite of plates in a cloth folder, all contained in a quarter brown morocco clamshell box. The second suite of plates are archivally matted and framed. Limited edition, this being number VIII of XXV super de luxe copies, with 2 additional suites of original prints, from an edition limited to 150 copies. This super de luxe edition includes a double suite of the 6 original etchings (12 total) six of which are loose in a blue cloth folding case and 6 of which are beautifully framed. The three double-sided copper plates from which the plates were printed passed from Goya's grandson Mariano to John Savile Lumley, then to Colnaghi, from whom Philip Hofer acquired them in the 1930s. He, in turn, gave them in 1970 to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, after the present edition of 150 sets had been printed by David Godine. No further prints will ever be pulled from these plates. They depict “Warlock”, “Witch”, two “Majas” and two “Smugglers”. (Item Id: 106722)
