SENECA, Lucius Annaeus
Woodcut printer's device on title & repeated on verso of final leaf. Small folio (319 x 208 mm.), cont. blind-stamped south German pigskin over wooden boards, orig. two catches & clasps. Basel: Johannes Hervagius, March 1537. Admired by Erasmus as a pagan moralist, Seneca (ca. 4 B.C.-65 A.D.) exerted a lasting influence on moral philosophy and rhetoric. He served as tutor to Nero until the Emperor's deeds forced Seneca to withdraw into retirement and, ultimately, commit suicide, an episode poignantly related by Tacitus (Annales XV, 62-64). Seneca's popularity endured unabated throughout the Middle Ages into the 15th and 16th centuries. Erasmus (ca. 1466-1536) produced the first critical edition of importance in 1515 at Basel, and he revised this in 1529, of which the present edition is a reprint. Vecellio Fore-edge Painting: Two full-length figures of a robed older Seneca with his former student, a young Nero, are painted on the fore-edge. The author's name is lettered vertically along the whole fore-edge, and horizontally below the lower clasp. Bottom and top edges are marbled. The painted decoration is the work of Cesare Vecellio (1521-1601), a cousin and pupil of Titian, in whose studio Vecellio worked until Titian's death. Among Vecellio's major paintings is the altarpiece at Belluno Cathedral. In addition to the painted fore-edges executed for the Pillones, Vecellio also painted a room in the Palazzo Pillone with the Four Seasons and the Rape of the Sabines. In his famous book on costume and manners, De gli habiti antichi et moderni (Venice: 1590), Vecellio mentions th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maitland, William. (18th century).
Copper Engraving. (36 x 24cm). Excellent conditon with only faint signs of a former fold to upper left corner. The London Charterhouse is a historic complex of buildings in Smithfield, London dating back to the 14th century. It occupies land to the north of Charterhouse Square. The Charterhouse began as (and takes its name from) a Carthusian priory, founded in 1371 and dissolved in 1537. Substantial fragments remain from this monastic period, but the site was largely rebuilt after 1545 as a large courtyard house. Thus, today it "conveys a vivid impression of the type of large rambling 16th century mansion that once existed all round London". The Charterhouse was further altered and extended after 1611, when it became an almshouse and school, endowed by Thomas Sutton. The almshouse (a home for gentlemen pensioners) still occupies the site today under the name Sutton's Hospital in Charterhouse. (Wikipedia)
