The Querini Foundation's Print Collection comprises 2,634 printed works and around 200 illustrated volumes. 

This collection assembles works from engravers of the Veneto region from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries such as Francesco Bartolozzi, Marco Pitteri, Francesco Del Pedro, Gianbattista Brustolon, the Sadeler family, Stefano Della Bella, Francesco Novelli, Giovanni Volpato, the Giampiccoli family, Francesco Zucchi and Gaetano Zompini.

The engravings of Venetian life provide a unique reflection of society of the times. They constitute a rich source  of epistolary texts, toponymy prints and portraits of famous figures from the political and cultural realms of the Renaissance through the Enlightenment. Among the books of exceptional merit are: "Jerusalem Delivered," by Torquato Tasso, illustrated by Giambattista Piazzetta; and the manuscript of the Arsenale, Cuore Veneto Legale, a collection of the Arsenal laws in 1703, with engravings by Isabella Piccini and Angela Baroni.

There are numerous volumes by Vincenzi Coronelli as well as atlases from the eighteenth century.

One of the most interesting portrait series portrays illustrious members of the Querini family. Most of the engravings depict Cardinal Angelo Maria Querini, Archbishop of Brescia, but there are also portraits of other family members such as Gerolamo by Cassana and of Andrea by Bartolozzi.
