ROBIANO, (E.J.B.) Comte de. (& A. de VRIES). Collection des desseins des figures colossales & des groupes qui ont été faits de neige. Antw., J.B. Carstiaenssens & M. Brüers, (1772 or 1773). (32) text-pp. (printed within woodcut frame) & 24 engr. plates. Loose (text unopened, completely untrimmed) in mod. cloth box. (Slightly browned, else in very good condition). Only edition. In the winter of 1772, from January 27 to February 1, severe weather conditions prevailed in Belgium. Several members of the Royal Academy of Design in Antwerpen took advantage from that occasion to create sculptures made of snow and ice. In order to perpetuate the memory of this uncommon achievement count Robiano, a high Austrian officer in the city, mandated the priest A. De Vries to compose a short text illustrating the sculptures, and had 24 plates accompanying the work engraved. - Kat. Orn. Berl., 4222.
