Set of two 19th century engravings. One depicts Endymion after "Effet de lune dit le sommeil d'endymion" by Girodet engraved by H.G. Chatillon in Paris in 1810. It is "dedicated to Monsieur Trioson Docteur en Médecine Ancien Médecin des Camps et Armées de France by his adopted son A.-L. Girordet-Trioson, Membre de la Légion d'honneur et des académies de peinture de Rome et de Florence". It shows a naked shepherd, asleep on a leopard skin and blue cloth, bathed in the moonlight that Zephyr, with butterfly wings, allows to filter through a bush. At his feet, his dog and weapons are strewn about. The original painting is in the Musée du Louvre.

The other depicts the goddess Venus on the waters after Bernardino Nocchi by Giovanni Folo Venelo in Rome. It depicts the goddess lying on a conch covered with white and blue cloth, pushed by two loves on a dolphin. Above her stands a cherub holding two birds tied with a string. On the shore, there are Italian architectures in rocks and two putti guarding the goddess' chariot. A similar engraving is in the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Both paintings are in carved and gilded wooden frames decorated with moulding, a frieze of palmettes and a line of hearts.
