Comment on 24.10.1800

A folio with engravings of Raphael’s tapestries in the Vatican, which Thorvaldsen had sent home in 1798: Les celèbres Tapisseries de Raphaël d’Urbin au Vatican à Rome, gravées par Louis Sommerau, nos. 1-20, Rome 1780, and which Abildgaard asked if he could buy in letter of 21.7.1800.
As the work is still in Thorvaldsen’s library, M315, he must have acquired another copy for himself later, as he mentions below.
