Quotation

The Excellence of a Print, as of a Drawing consists not particularly in the Handling ; This is but One, and even one of the Least considerable parts of it : ‘tis the Invention, the Grace, and Greatness, and those Principal things that in the first place are to be regarded. There is better Graving, a finer Burin in many Worthless Prints than in those of Marc Antonio, but those of Him that come after Raffaele are Generally more esteem’d than even those which are Grav’d by the Masters themselves ;
