Set of two engravings from the 19th century. One represents 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, Member of the Legion of Honour and of the Academies of Painting of Rome and Florence". It is a naked shepherd, sleeping on a leopard skin and a 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 spread out. The original painting is in the Louvre Museum.

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.
