CALLOT, Jacques (1592-1635). Vie de la mere de Dieu representée par emblesmes. [No place, publisher or date].
CALLOT, Jacques (1592-1635). Vie de la mere de Dieu representée par emblesmes. [No place, publisher or date]. 4º (196 x 145mm). Etched Latin title below letterpress title in French, 26 emblematic etchings by Callot printed on rectos only, heading above in Latin, a Latin distich and its translation into a French quatrain below. (Light spotting and soiling to title, and small marginal repair, occasional isolated spots elsewhere, paper restoration at lower margin of E1.) Late 19th-century red morocco by Riviere, gilt-panelled sides, gilt spine compartments, one directly lettered, gilt turn-ins and edges. Provenance : Sir Henry Hope Edwardes, 10th Baronet (1829-1900; bookplate). There are four known editions of Callot's emblem book, Francois Langlois's Paris edition of 1646 in quarto (F.134), Benoit Audran's undated Paris edition in oblong octavo (F. 135), and two others with no imprint or date, both quarto (F.136-137). Despite the greater number of editions, it is much rarer than his other emblem book, Lux claustri. La lumiere du cloistre , published in Paris by Langlois in 1646. Both works show the artist's great characteristic of delicate simplicity. Adams, Rawles & Saunders F.137 (wrongly calls for headings in Latin and French); cf. Landwehr, Romanic 197; Praz 294.
