MINIATURE BOOK – Kalendarium. Evangelia 4. Psalmi poenit. 7 . Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1570. The Esmerian copy of Plantin ’ s exceptionally rare first miniature book. This is truly the first miniature book to be issued by Plantin and precedes by 15 years his next book in this format, another miniature Kalendarium (1585), which has been erroneously regarded as the first. We are aware of just three other copies – two in Belgium (Royal Library and the Plantin-Moretus Museum) and another sold at Bonhams, London in 2017. Cf. Bromer and Edison, Miniature Books , p.92 (1585 edition); USTC 411574; Voet 862. 64mo (33 x 20mm). Printed in black and red. Contemporary black morocco, fine filigree metal clasp (tiny hole in spine, minor wear to upper joint); housed in a modern morocco box. Provenance : Raphaël Esmerian (sale Paris, 6 June 1972, lot 81; book label in box).
