Goya sketched his original set of 33 etchings of bull-fighting moves and techniques in the very early 1800s and it was published in 1816. A second edition appeared in 1855. The plates were acquired by a Paris publisher Loizelet who published the original etchings along with 7 new ones that he found on the backs of some of the plates. These new illustrations appear in the current portfolio, lettered A-G, as they were in Loizelet's third edition of 1876. In black velvet slipcase. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
