Défaite de la cavalerie Turque (1st State) From: The Life of Ferdinando de’Medici, The Defeat of the Turkish Cavalry Engraving 224 x 300 mm.; 8 7/8 x 11 7/8 inches References: Lieure No. 154 Meaume No. 541 Russell, 1975 no. 174 Nancy, 1992 no. 72 I Russell notes an impression in the Bibliothèque Nationale with the background apparently lightly sketched in. This present impression therefore would be a 2nd state. However, the present very rare impression appears to be the earliest complete one and could be described as a 1st state. The Nancy catalogue of 1992, notes that the 2nd state always carries the inscription of: Matteo Rosselli inv. - Iacopo Callot inc., not found in this impression. Thus, according to the Nancy catalogue, this would confirm our description of this impression as a 1st state.
