Descrizione libro: (Paris, D. Janot for) Gilles Corrozet, (February, 24th) 1542., 1542. Folio. VI, CLXXIIII lvs. With 36 woodcuts (one nearly full-page) all surrounded by a varying border (partly decorated with coats of arms), some "lettres fleuries" initials by G. Tory (cf. Mortimer ) and few "Crible " initials. Woodcut printer's device. A magnificent, signed heraldic binding worked in leather marquetry by the famous Paris bookbinder Gruel from the last quarter of the 19th century in an excellent state of preservation. First edition of Sevin's translation. Denys Janot organized this edition under his own name and for various Paris bookshops, whose own signets and sales notes were then imprinted. Thus our specimen bears the Corrozet-signet on the title page (v. Renouard 206) and the note : "On les vend à Paris en la grand Salle du Pa1ais du costé de 1a chapelle de messieurs, en 1a boutique de Gilles Corrozet Libraire." This signet makes the book - which is extremely rare anyhow - a top rarity , not accounted for in the relevant bibliographies / catalogues. The woodcuts derive from Janot's edition of the first books of the "Amadis de Gaula" of 1540 (cf. Brun and Mortimer), the borders partly were made earlier (thus one is dated "1520"). The borders frequently bear foliage ornaments, and a whole series of them shows grotesque faces and heraldic shields. The lavishly equipped Moroccan leather binding bears in the middle of both covers the coat of arms of Henri IV (1553 -1610) in an oval cartouche with the French heraldic shield (on a blue background) and that of Navarre (on red) together with three crowns: the two small ones representing France and Navarre, and the big one symbolizing the union (v. J. Guigard, Nouvelle Armorial du Bibliophile. Paris 1890. p. 20). The heraldic shields and the small crowns are enclosed by delicate foliage. Crown as well as tendrils are gold-embossed, the colours of the escutcheons are subtly repeated in the big crown. The coats of arms are surrounded by a network of partly geometrical, partly floral and ornamental polychromatic ribbons (in beige, brown, ruby and red) in Grolier-style, ending at top and bottom in a bigger grotesque, and below four corner vignettes in a smaller one each (in beige the bigger, in brown the smaller ones). The fields between the stripes are gold-embossed with ?Crible? dots. The cover decor is predominantly worked in leather marquetry .This binding in mock-historical style follows the tradition of ?reliure adaptée au texte?, a speciality of the Gruel studio (cf. R. Devauchelle, La reliure en France de ses origines a nos jours. Paris 1961. Vol. II, pp.34ff.).The above term would have to be extended with the top products from this workshop to ?reliure adaptée au texte et aux illustrations", as in these cases the bookbinder extended his historical approach to elements of the artistic illustration of the book: Thus in our example the ?Crible? - initials correlate with the corresponding cover decor, Henri's IV coats-of-arms correspond with the (fancy) heraldry of the woodcut borders, and this correlation continues right through to details of motif in the Bourbon fleur-de-lis or the crowns. The covers show floral corner vignettes unfolding in a fan shape, and these also reappear in the lines of several borders; the same applies to the grotesques and the floral elements. Thus the book with its illustrations and the cover binding form an integral artistic unity. Ex-libris. A carefully cleaned copy; title still with old and very faded entries. Throughout evenly somewhat browned, in places with faint mildew or brown spots. Some woodcuts slightly paler in imprint. Few sheets with surface irregularities in the bottom outer corner, due to the process of paper-making. Altogether a very clean specimen of this rarity.

I, 142; Cioranescu 20705; BMSTC (French Books) 71; Omont (Janot) 125; Brun S. 158 (if there is mentioned a printer it is only Janot). An extensivede. Codice libro della libreria 545

Descrizione libro: Giovanni Tacuino da Trino 6 marzo 1506, Venezia, 1506. Binding: Flemish (Antwerp) mid-sixteenth century blind paneled dark brown calf over pasteboard, by the Flemish binder Claes van Doermaele, the covers paneled with blind fillets and two frames of foliated roll-tools enclosing a central panel containing a circular medallion panel-stamp of the Emperor Charles V in a richly suit of armor with sword, with the legend "CAROLVS.V. ROMA.IMP.SEMPER.AVGVST.ETAT.SVE.XLII" the imperial insignia above and below, surrounding the panel a narrow foliated roll-toll with a central escutcheon at the foot bearing the binder’s mark "CVD", spine in six compartments. In a modern cloth folding box.Provenience: Johannes Hoyel (contemporary inscription); Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun (Scottish patriot, 1653-1716).Few minor restorations to spine and corners, a little rubbed, lacking 2 fore-edge ties, overall a beautiful copy in an outstanding binding with an interesting provenience.First edition of both works. Composed between 1342 and 1343 and revised by Boccaccio himself between 1356 and 1360, the Amorosa visione is a poem in fifty cantos of terza rima that tells of a dreamer, the poet-protagonist, with a female guide, encountering five triumphs as frescoes within a castle – probably Castelnouvo of Napoli whose rooms were frescoed by Giotto; emerging into a garden landscape he eventually discovers his beloved. The poem is reminiscent of Dante and presages Petrarch; contemporaries thought the work post-dated Petrarch’s Trionfi, but it is now recognized as pre-dating that work. This edition is considered to represent Boccaccio’s own revisions, albeit with some intervention by its humanist editor Claricio who also added his own defense of Boccaccio’s poetry. Urbano, a novel which has the natural son of the Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa as protagonist, is presented here as a newly discovered text by Boccaccio but it is in fact a spurious work now variously assigned either Givanni Bonsignori or to Buonaccorsi da Ginestrata. The binder Claes van Doermaele came to Antwerp in 1533, where he was made Stadsboekbinder, following the death of Willem Vorsterman in 1543.Van Doermaele is recorded as binder of the Antwerp archive up to 1549. A binding in the National Art Library at South Kensington (Waele B.94) with the same central panel and binder’s mark, on an octavo format edition of the Opus historiarum nostro saeculo, Basel 1541, is described by E.P. Goldschmidt in his Gothic and Renaissance Bookbindings, no.184. The binding of Giannalisa Feltrinelli’s copy of Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, has the same central panel and binder’s mark.

Descrizione libro: Zanotti Castiglione per Andrea Calvo, 10 February 1521; Bologna: Franciscus Plato de Benedictis, Milan, 1492. Hardcover. FIRST PRINTING OF BOTH WORKS. Two First Printings of Boccaccio (or Pseudo-Boccaccio) Texts,In a "Masterpiece" of Renaissance Binding, the Fletcher of Saltoun Copy. 215 x 150 mm (8 1/4 x 5 3/4"). [110] leaves, including final blank; [34] leaves, single column, 26 lines in roman type. Two separately published works bound in one volume. FIRST PRINTING OF BOTH WORKS. HANDSOME RENAISSANCE INTRICATELY DECORATED BLINDSTAMPED CALF BY CLAES VAN DOERMAELE, covers with outer frame of medallion and foliate roll, inner frame of long-stemmed lilies and scrolling vines, large central panel containing a medallion with three-quarter portrait of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, a sword in one hand, an orb in the other, the collar of the medallion with the inscription "Carolus V Roma. Imp. Semper August. Etat Sue XLII," a large escutcheon containing a double-headed eagle above the medallion, a banner with Charles V's motto "Plus Ultra" suspended between two columns below it, binder's small "CvD" escutcheon stamp below the central panel; raised bands, early ink-titled paper label, small paper shelf number of a private library at foot of spine, unobtrusive expert repairs to head of front joint, tail of both joints, and upper corners, lacking ties. In a (slightly worn) linen clamshell box. Front free endpaper with 16th century ink ownership inscription of Johannes Hoyel; rear pastedown with inscription of A. Fletcher (i.e., Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun--see below). Willems "Bibliotheca Fletcheriana," p. 34; First work: Brunet I, 994 ("edition rare"); Second work: Goff B-762; BMC VI, 826; for the binding: Goldschmidt 184; Weale 94; Fogelmark, p. 125. Title page just slightly soiled, two leaves with minor browning to lower corners, two tiny marginal stains, otherwise A FINE, FRESH COPY IN A VERY WELL-PRESERVED BINDING, the leather lustrous, and the blindstamped details remarkably sharp. This is a happy combination of two Boccaccio first editions in a wonderful Renaissance binding by a known binder, and with distinguished provenance. "Amorosa" tells of a dream of love in 50 cantos of terza rima, the text here with Boccaccio's own revisions, as well as with additional work by the humanist editor Claricio, who includes a defense of Boccaccio's poetry. The tale follows a dreamer led by a female guide through a castle to the garden where his beloved awaits, plot elements that are clearly reminiscent of Dante, and modern critics now see "Amorosa" as having exerted influence on Petrarch. The bound-in incunabular text here, the novel "Urbano," was represented originally as a newly discovered work by Boccaccio, but it is now known to be a spurious work variously attributed to Giovanni Buonsignori, Buonaccorsi da Ginestrata, or Cambio de Stefano. The hero, Urbano, is the son of Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa and a peasant girl whom he raped. Urbano bears a strong resemblance to the emperor's legitimate heir, Speculo, and is tricked by unscrupulous Florentine merchants into marrying the daughter of a sultan who believes him to be the emperor's heir. After numerous dramatic twists that include the death of Speculo, the plot is resolved when Frederick acknowledges Urbano as his heir. The first dated work by our Bolognese printer Franciscus de Benedictis (known by the nickname "Plato") appeared in 1482, and he began printing regularly in 1487, mostly for publisher Benedictus Hectoris. He issued several undated works in Venice, but continued printing in Bologna until six months before his death in August of 1496. BMC notes that he was known as a "Printer of mark" and was respected by his patrons as "a man of probity as well as of some cultivation." Binder Claes (Nicholas) van Doersmaele (or Claus Duermale) was active in Antwerp beginning in 1533. Goldschmidt notes that he was "appointed 'Stadsboekbinder' for the town of Antwerp" after the death of Willem Vorsterman in 1543, and that "the account books in the Antwerp achives after that date are bound by him." His name contines to appear in the archiv. Codice libro della libreria ST12543

Descrizione libro: Londres but Paris -61, 1757. Five volumes 8vo (20.2 x 13.5 cm). With 116 numbered engr. plates incl. 5 engraved titles and a portrait frontispiece, 97 head and tail pieces by Gravelot and Boucher among others, engraved by Aliamet, Bacquoy, Lemire and others, plus a frontispiece and 21 extra planches libres, unsigned but attributed to Gravelot; closed tear to p.57, vol.2. Red morocco by F. Bedford ca. 1900, gilt dentelles in imitation of Derome with the a l'oiseau tool, gilt spines with raised bands, blue silk doublures, all edges gilt; very slightly soiled. Finely bound in richly gilt red morocco à la dentelle, this beautiful example includes the very rare portrait and 50 plates from the first issue, "le plus recherché [with] les épreuves les plus belles" (Cohen). It contains the charming 'figures libres', even offering one more than usual: "l'une des plus jolies suites de Gravelot" (Gay-L.). Indeed our copy has 21 erotic plates plus the frontispiece, instead of 20 usually found and described by the bibliography. Almost all plates of the first two volumes and some of the third bear the ink stamp at the back proving that they belong to the much sought-after first issue, printed for the Italian edition. Cohen among others praised this great achievement of Gravelot, Boucher, Cochin and Eisen, the best illustrators of the French 18th century. The edition not only shows more than 100 plates, but also includes rich decorative engraved head- and tail-pieces in the best tradition of book illustration of its time. The Italian text was translated into French by A. Le Macon. Cohen-de Ricci 160 (not mentioning the portrait plate); Gay-Lemonnyer I, 830 (with the portrait); Ray 39-41; not in Nordmann.

Descrizione libro: Londra [i.e., Paris], 1757. Hardcover. First Edition with these Illustrations. A Large Paper Copy in Period Red Morocco of "One of the Masterpieces of the Illustrated Book" 222 x 140 mm (8 3/4 x 5 1/2"). Five volumes. Edited by Filippo di Matteo Villani. First Edition with these Illustrations. EXCELLENT CONTEMPORARY RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, covers with gilt fillet border, flat spines divided into six panels by plain gilt rules, three panels with small floral tool at center, two with titling, and one with a rampant lion and saltire from the Longe family crest, gilt-ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved title in each volume, many engraved vignette headpieces and tailpieces, and 111 VERY FINE ENGRAVED PLATES (including frontispiece portrait in first volume), primarily AFTER DRAWINGS BY GRAVELOT, but also after EISEN, BOUCHER, and COCHIN. Tissue guards (perhaps original) for all engraved matter. A Large Paper Copy printed on Papier de Hollande. Front pastedowns with engraved armorial bookplate of Francis Longe, Spixworth Park, Norfolk; final volume with ink monogram "ME" on last page. Two instances of ink marginalia noting reversed order of plates. Cohen-de Ricci 158 ("un des livres illustrés de plus réussis de tout le XVIIIe siècle"); Ray 15; Brunet I, 1003. Boards just a shade brighter than the spines, negligible rubbing to joints and extremities, covers with a couple of small dark spots, occasional minor smudges to the (extremely wide) margins, other trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE CONTEMPORARY COPY--unusually clean, fresh, and bright inside and out. This is a very special Large Paper Copy in period morocco of one of the most famous and charming illustrated books of the 18th century, and it may be the supreme example of refined libertine illustration of the period. Owen Holloway calls this one of the four masterpieces of book illustration at the end of the Rococo period. And Ray is expansive in his praise, calling the work simply "one of the masterpieces of the illustrated book." Although he had as collaborators on this work some of the outstanding French artists of the 18th century, Gravelot (born Hubert-François-Bourguignon, 1699-1773) was chiefly responsible for its production, designing 89 of its 222 plates and all 97 of its immensely delightful tailpieces. In this, the most ambitious undertaking of his career, Gravelot gave Boccaccio's narrative the settings and costumes of 18th century France, and this transposition "made it possible for him to exercise his special talent for depicting the social world around him. For the most part, his figures are young, the women graceful and pretty, the men lithe and handsome . . . . All levels of life are presented, from the peasant in his hovel to the king in his palace. Every variety of interior is there, from boudoirs and bedrooms to dining rooms and salons. Animated street scenes alternate with glimpses of gardens and farms, forests and river banks. The human condition has rarely been so attractively displayed. Yet this is only the beginning . . . . Gravelot's tailpieces complete what his plates have begun. They are peopled by amusing children, who . . . usually play their parts in interpreting Boccaccio's text." (Ray) Our handsome set was bound for Francis Longe (1748-1812), a gentleman who served as sheriff of Norfolk and whose library warrants mention in Quaritch's "Dictionary of Book Collectors." The "Catalogue of British and American Book Plates" held by the British Museum lists two different bookplates for Longe (3385 and 3386). Codice libro della libreria ST12596

Descrizione libro: London Guglielmo Pickering 1825, 1825. 3 volumes. First edition thus. beautifully illustrated with very fine plates engraved by the celebrated Auguste Fox after the designs of Stothard and finely printed on special paper and with an engraved frontispiece of Boccaccio in Volume I. 8vo, very handsomely and very beautifully bound in superb period bindings of full brown crushed morocco, the spines with specially designed gilt tooled raised bands, the compartments elaborately decorated in gilt with multiple tools filling completely the compartments, lettered and numbered in gilt within two compartments, the covers with gilt rolled borders enclosing double gilt fillet rules enclosing elaborately gilt tooled inner borders featuring very pleasing engraved grain and floral devices, gilt edges to the covers, fine gilt turnovers, finely marbled endpapers, t.e.g. cvi- (Discorso Storico, -cxxxv (tavola, the contents) 228; 229-586; 587-967 pp. A very fine, very beautiful set, in superb period bindings with virtually no evidence of age or wear. A VERY IMPORTANT AND VERY APPEALING SET OF THE DECAMERON IN THREE VOLUMES. THE PICKERING PRINTING OF 1825 IS REVERED FOR ITS BEAUTY AND QUALITY. The plates are very finely reproduced and contribute greatly to the appeal of this lovely set. Boccaccio is considered along with Dante and Petrarch as a member of the great triumvirate of early Italian writers. As contemporaries, they established what would be considered as the first post-classical literary style in Italy, and thus in Western Civilization. The DECAMERON is Boccaccio’s most influential work and has inspired generations of writers from all around the world. Perhaps most important to the history of English literature, the DECAMERON is considered to have been the greatest influence on Chaucer in his structuring of his CANTERBURY TALES. The work is a gathering of tales from several sources---created by Boccaccio and written over several years, it was finally collected under one title between 1349 and 1351. The story is of seven women and three men who have left Florence for a period of ten days in order to avoid the plague. They depart for neighboring villas and over the course of the next ten days each person tells a tale to entertain the others. The hundred tales are considered to be one of the greatest works in Italian literature and have influenced successive generations of writers for centuries. Codice libro della libreria 24381

Descrizione libro: In Vinegia [Venice]: Al segno del Pozzo [colophon: Stampato. per Comino da Trino di Monferrato], 1547., 1547. First Edition in Italian of the first medieval work to treat of classical mythology, the Latin editio princeps, printed by Vendelin of Spire, appearing at Venice in 1472. Boccaccio returned to Florence after the death of his father in the pestilence of 1348, where, under Petrarch's direction, he became a chief agent in the promotion of humanistic studies. After the bold literary career of his youth, he ?thenceforth appears in quite a new light, as a trusty diplomatist, [and] the author of various manuals? (Garnett, A History of Italian Lit.). Written around 1366, the Geneology is the most erudite of these reference works. Drawing largely from Ovid, the author arranged this mythological encyclopedia of the Greco-Roman deities in geneological format, providing a mine of information for several generations of scholars and writers, including Chaucer. The epilogue contains ?the first defense of poesy in honor of his own art by a poet of the modern world? (Spingarn), and is, according to Garnett ?what renders this volume really interesting and valuable.? The full-page woodcut illustrates a tree, the leaves of which represent the descendants of ?Demogorgone.? With fifteen large woodcut historiated initials, and hundreds of smaller ones thoroughout. Adams B-2174. BM STC Italian, p. 111. Jackson, Plimpton Collection, No.104 (pp.66-7). See: Spingarn, History of Literary Criticism in the Renaissance, p.9. 4to, (8), 286, (16)ff, woodcut vignette at title, historiated initials throughout, 1 woodcut illus., lacks final blank PP8. Later vellum, gilt lettering piece at spine, edges stained blue, early owner sig. at top margin title, later owner rubber stamp at blank inner margin, top and bottom margins trimmed closely, sometimes encroaching on headlines, loss to printer's motto at bottom edge title, early repairs to frayed bottom corner first 10 leaves, 1/2-inch bottom corner lacking next 20 leaves, barely affected border of woodcut, binder patches along bottom margin L3 and L4, otherwise pages bright and crisp, a good copy.
