    First Latin-French edition of Faerno’s collection, an English-French edition was published two years before. Gabriele Faerno (d. 1561) was commissioned to compile a selection of Aesopian fables by his protector Pope Pius IV in c. 1550. The collection of 100 fables was published in 1563 only, after Faerno'’s death. Charles Perrault’'s French translation in verses was first published in 1699. His aim was to achieve an ideal combination of closeness to the Latin text with La Fontaine’'s subtle poetry. The present Latin-French edition was in use as a text book at the time. – Bodemann 119.2; Cohen/de Ricci 371; Brunet II, 1160 Avec frontispice gravé et 100 vignettes gravées dans le texte par Claude du Bosc. (Achevée). [19], 45, 238, (2) p. 4 à. Demi veau XIXème sur plats marbrés. Pages de garde marbrées. Certains numéros de poèmes / sections sont imprimés de manière incorrecte, mais tous sont présents et toutes les gravures sont présentes. Légers frottements sur les bords du dos, et une touche de chocs sur les plats. Le bloc de texte est impeccable, avec des gravures magnifiquement propres et lumineuses. 260 par 210 mm (10¼ par 8¼ pouces).
    Première édition latino-française de la collection de Faerno, une édition anglais-français avait été publiée deux ans auparavant. Gabriele Faerno (d. 1561) a été chargé de compiler une sélection de fables ésopiennes par son protecteur le pape Pie IV en c. 1550. Le recueil de 100 fables fut publié en 1563 seulement, après la mort de Faerno. La traduction française en vers de Charles Perrault a été publiée pour la première fois en 1699. Son objectif était de parvenir à une combinaison idéale de proximité du texte latin avec la poésie subtile de La Fontaine. La présente édition latino-française était utilisée comme manuel à l'époque. – Bodemann 119,2 ; Cohen/de Ricci 371 ; Brunet II, 1160

  • Five Leaves of Lithographic Illustration from his 1918 Calendar by HOYTEMA, Theo Van.

    Five Leaves of Lithographic Illustration from his 1918 Calendar

    Amsterdam: Five leaves from Hoytema's 1918 calendar, printed by Tresling & Co. of Amsterdam. Juni / Maart / April / Mei / Juli. These sheets were still in preparation on Hoytema's death, and it is a tribute to his popularity that Tresling still published the calendar, even though they are black and white sketches, without the detail, borders or colour. Each plate is 43cm x 21cm (narrow folio format). Each plate is produced by a lithographic technique, signed or monogrammed to the stone. The top edge of each has a fine serrated tooth pattern, where it has been detached from the original calendar. Each of these sheets has a large amount of text in Dutch. These are notes on Chemistry…

    Amsterdam: Five leaves from Hoytema's 1918 calendar, printed by Tresling & Co. of Amsterdam. Juni / Maart / April / Mei / Juli. These sheets were still in preparation on Hoytema's death, and it is a tribute to his popularity that Tresling still published the calendar, even though they are black and white sketches, without the detail, borders or colour. Each plate is 43cm x 21cm (narrow folio format). Each plate is produced by a lithographic technique, signed or monogrammed to the stone. The top edge of each has a fine serrated tooth pattern, where it has been detached from the original calendar. Each of these sheets has a large amount of text in Dutch. These are notes on Chemistry in a detailed hand. Theo van Hoytema (1863-1917) was Dutch illustrator and book designer. He was particularly known for his nature images (more specifically birds). He grew up in The Hague, and afterwards in Voorschoten. He took drawing lessons at the Academy of Art in The Hague, and through his Uncle's contacts, he studied at the Zoological Museum in Leiden.
    His first illustrations were published in 1891, "How the birds came to a King" He followed this up with "The Ugly Duckling" in 1893, and "The Happy Owls" in 1895. He married in 1891, but it was not a happy marriage, and did not last. He entered a restless period after the breakdown of his marriage, moving around, and staying for a while with his brother in London. Between 1904 and 1906 he spent time in a hospital, and a sanatorium for neurotics. On release, he lived with his sister in The Hague for the rest of his life. It was during this later period that he made the calendars which made him famous. Theo van Hoytema made 17 calendars. The final one – for the year 1918, was somewhat sketchy, as it was in preparation in the year of his death, and was not completed as a full colour lithograph. There are collections of his work in the Museum Bijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, and the Rijksmuseum & Stedelijk Museums in Amsterdam. There is a road and square / park named after him in The Hague, with a memorial there.

    (less)

    Condition: Each of the sheets are clean and tidy. The serration has been neatly separated, and there are no significant marks to the illustrations. The white rear panel shows a touch of handling only. Maart only, has a touch of darkening / marking to the edge. No other marks apart from the text to the verso. Overall an excellent collection of these lithographic sheets.
