PARADIN, Claude (c.1510-1573) and Gabriel SYMEON (1509-1570). Les devises heroiques . Antwerp: Christophe Plantin, 1562.
PARADIN, Claude (c.1510-1573) and Gabriel SYMEON (1509-1570). Les devises heroiques . Antwerp: Christophe Plantin, 1562. 16° (110 x 70mm). 215 (of 216) woodcut devices: 178 (of 179) for Paradin, 37 for Symeon. (Title crinkled and with paper flaw causing loss of two letters, stained on verso and with the small area of loss repaired.) Red morocco by Roger de Coverly, gilt spine lettering, gilt ruled turn-ins, gilt edges. Provenance : Geoffrey Whitney (1548?-1600/01; title inscription) -- sold Sotheby's, 19 May 1884, lot 108, purchased by: S.A. Thompson Yates (book plate; his bibliographical pencil note on Whitney and record of costs including rebinding on front blank). The Whitney copy. Second edition of Plantin's first emblem book, first printed in 1561. Geoffrey Whitney wrote A Choice of Emblemes , printed at the Plantin Press by Francis Raphelengius in Leiden in 1586. He has been called 'the pre-eminent emblematist of the Elizabethan period' (Andrew King in ODNB), and it seems a safe assumption that he used this copy as a key source for his own work. Thompson Yates's bibliographical note in fact lists the 32 blocks (out of 248) which he chose from it. For Whitney's autograph and motto, see the preliminary plate in Henry Green's edition of Whitney's Choice of Emblems (1866). Landwehr Low Countries 598; Praz p.444 (referring to this copy); Voet 1950.
