Most of those works were returned to their original owners. The book these prints came from was a work of art in its own right and had contrubutions from the greatest artists and engravers of the day. It is a catalog of the works in the collection in 1815.

Jean Duchesne Ainé was conservator of the Department of Prints in the Bibliothèque Impériale from the age of 15 until his death 60 years later.
