LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS
Various publishers, places, and dates of publication, 1655 to 1900, 1655. The Language of Flowers phenomenon flourished for almost eighty years, beginning in France in the early 19th century. As both potent and subtle symbols in Western culture, flowers are found in religious texts, poetry, heraldic, and emblematic literature from the classical period and early Christianity, through medieval literature and the enlightenment. In the early 19th century books were written and published for the first time under titles such as Ab�c�daire de Flore ou Langage des Fleurs (1811), Oracles de Flore (1816), Emblemes de Flore et des V�g�aux (1819) and Le Langage des Fleurs (1819). With those publications, the language of flowers and its exploration of floral symbolism in communication - usually as a language of love and romance - gained acceptance and popularity. By 1830, the genre was widely available to a new world of fervent book buyers and readers in the working and middle classes. The vogue for language of flowers books was so prevalent that it became the subject of parodies and satires by, among others, Frederick Marryat and J. J. Grandville. Herman Melville was a devotee of symbolic flower language and referred to it in Mardi and Pierre and poems written to his wife Lizzie. See Beverly Seaton, The Language of Flowers, A History. University Press of Virginia, 1995. Overall in good to fine condition. A catalogue with full descriptions is available via pdf at our website, www.brickrow.com, on the catalogues page..

Acquaforte, 1655 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con l'indirizzo dell'editore Daman aggiunto.

Bartolomeo BISCAINO (Genova 1632 circa - 1657)
Acquaforte, 1655 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel quinto stato di sei. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, inusuali ampi margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione si basa sul dipinto, nello stesso verso, di Valerio Castello, oggi in una collezione privata a Genova. Questa lastra è stata poi pubblicata da Daman, il cui nome appare in quasi tutte le incisioni realizzate da Biscaino e da Remondini. Nato a Genova dal grande pittore Giovanni Andrea Biscaino, i primi anni di formazione Bartolomeo li visse a fianco del padre per poi passare nel laboratorio dell'ancora più illustre Valerio Castello. La breve carriera di Biscaino venne interrotta nel 1657, quando morì, a soli venticinque anni, a causa di un'epidemia di peste a Genova. La sua fama come pittore rimase piuttosto circoscritta, ma la sua prolifica produzione di incisioni lo rese famoso ben oltre i confini della sua città natale. Etching, about 1655, signed in plate lower right. Example in the fifth state of six. Beautiful proof, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, unusual large margins, in excellent condition. The composition is based on the painting, in the same direction, by Valerio Castello, now in a private collection in Genoa. This plate was then published by Daman, whose name appears in almost all the recordings made by Biscaino and Remondini. Born in Genoa by the great painter Giovanni Andrea Biscaino, the first year of training Bartolomeo he lived with his father before moving in laboratory the even more illustrious Vale … [Click Below for Full Description]

Parent, J
Lille: Manuscript, 1655. A remarkable, unpublished chronicle of the legal evolution of Lille, borne witness by the members of the Magistrat, or Loi, who are listed by name almost every year from 1303-1655. The Loi was led by the rewart (respector amicitiae), who, in addition to being the most visible of the voting constituent of the Conclave, also served as chief of the civic militia. Each year the requirements for inclusion in the Conclave differed, but for the highly active mid-16th century, the members were the 12-strong bench of échevins (municipal alderman), the council, comprising four voir-jurés and eight jurés, and finally the eight huit-hommes. Non-voting members of the Conclave included five apaiseurs, five gard'orphènes, and several civil servants, among which were treasurers, conseillers, procurer-syndics, and two clerks--one for civil and one for criminal affairs. The present manuscript lists many of the members of each year's Loi, beginning in 1301. First listed, following the rewart, are the échevins, who had a hand in virtually all quotidian civic matters, from chimney inspections to toll collections; then conseillers, or city jurists; then the huit-hommes, who set tax structures and quotas at the discretion of the aldermen, and were always of course eight in number; then the voir-jurés and jurés, who arbitrated with the aldermen on most non-judicial issues; finally the apaiseurs, who settled the more trivial disputes among townspeople, and the gard'orphènes, who had the highly specialized duty of managing the property of bourgeois orphans. Other nonvoting m … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bartolomeo BISCAINO
Acquaforte, 1655 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel quinto stato di sei. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, inusuali ampi margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione si basa sul dipinto, nello stesso verso, di Valerio Castello, oggi in una collezione privata a Genova. Questa lastra è stata poi pubblicata da Daman, il cui nome appare in quasi tutte le incisioni realizzate da Biscaino e da Remondini. Nato a Genova dal grande pittore Giovanni Andrea Biscaino, i primi anni di formazione Bartolomeo li visse a fianco del padre per poi passare nel laboratorio dell’ancora più illustre Valerio Castello. La breve carriera di Biscaino venne interrotta nel 1657, quando morì, a soli venticinque anni, a causa di un'epidemia di peste a Genova. La sua fama come pittore rimase piuttosto circoscritta, ma la sua prolifica produzione di incisioni lo rese famoso ben oltre i confini della sua città natale. Etching, about 1655, signed in plate lower right. Example in the fifth state of six. Beautiful proof, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, unusual large margins, in excellent condition. The composition is based on the painting, in the same direction, by Valerio Castello, now in a private collection in Genoa. This plate was then published by Daman, whose name appears in almost all the recordings made by Biscaino and Remondini. Born in Genoa by the great painter Giovanni Andrea Biscaino, the first year of training Bartolomeo he lived with his father before moving in laboratory the even more illustrious Vale … [Click Below for Full Description]

Up for sale is this fine work by Richard Sibbes from 1655: A learned commentary or exposition: upon the first chapter of the second Epistle of S. Paul to the Corinthians Being the substance of many sermons formerly preached at Grayes-Inne, London, by that reverend and judicious divine, Richard Sibbs, D.D. The book has tight binding but looks to have been rebound circa 1900. The pages are surprisingly clean but do have some staining and folding in spots (see pictures). The front end page has an inscription from some early Bergen County NJ settlers. Please contact me with any questions. This will sell to the first fair offer I receive. [Attributes: First Edition]
