About This Item

Paris: Jacques Kerver, 1543. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Good Condition. Rebound in 17th or 18th century sponged calf, recently rebacked, edges stained red. Trimmed a bit close affecting the title, running title and occasionally just touching the plate edges, title repaired in the gutter with manuscript replacement of lost text; light scattered stains, foxing, generally quite clean internally with 197 woodcuts on 104 leaves, a6v and a8v with cancelled cuts pasted over, as usual. Mortimer 314., Brunet III 344 ("edition recherchée a cause de jolies gravures").

"The finest of these cuts are by an extremely skillfuyl artist, probably one of the artists of the 1546 Kerver Hypnerotomachie and have been attributed to Jean Cousin or Jean Goujon...Kerver was the first to commission the emblematic woodcuts and to print the Horapollo text itself in the form of an emblem book." The first French addition, preceded by the Aldine in Greek (in an edition of Aesop) and two Latin editions.

Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Inventory No: 046445.
