33 leaves in all: an etched title-page, by Bossi after Petitot; an engraved title-page; an etched dedication (numbered 1 in the upper right-hand corner), by Bossi after Petitot; and thirty fine, extremely imaginative etchings of vases (numbered from 2 to 31 in the upper right-hand corners) by Bossi after Petitot.

All plates are outstanding impressions in the final state.
