BURG, Hermanus van den.
, . . Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries 92 (cf. 786); Praz, p. 292 (cf. pp. 509-510); STCN (8 copies); cf. Hippisley, The first Russian emblem book. First and only edition of Van den Burg's revised edition of the first Russian emblem book. The original emblem book was published in the Netherlands in 1705 as Symbola et Emblemata, with captions in Russian, German, Dutch, etc. It was published as part of a deal by Tsar Peter the Great granting the Dutch merchant Jan Tesing the right to print books in Holland for sale in Russia. The first genuinely Russian edition was published in 1788. This edition by the Dutch poet Hermanus van den Burg (1682-1752), uses the original plates and replaces most of the captions, including the Russian, by new two-line verses in Dutch. With a wormhole in the lower outer corner of the first 9 leaves and in the gutter, both not affecting the text, also with some minor spots. Binding somewhat rubbed along the extremities. Overall in good condition.

Sold by I Smith at the Lyon & Crown in Russel Atreet Covent Garden. 1705 - Mezzotint Image 325 x 250 mm, Plate 345 x 250 mm, Sheet 356 x 260 mm Portrait of William Anne Keppel, 2nd Earl of Albemarle (1702-1754) was a British general, diplomat and an American colonist. On 21 February 1722, he married Lady Anne Lennox (1703 â€" 1789), a daughter of the 1st Duke of Richmond (and a granddaughter of King Charles II through an illegitimate line). Albemarle County, Virginia, in the United States is named after him. John Smith (1652-1743) was a pioneer of the mezzotint process. Born in Northampton, he moved to London to become a printer's apprentice. He turned his attention to mezzotint engraving and became the pupil of Jan Van der Vaart. In the first nine years of his career Smith worked for five publishers: Richard Palmer, Edward Cooper, Alexander Browne, Pierce Tempest and Isaac Beckett. He began publishing for himself in 1687, and from 1692 worked only for himself. When Beckett died in 1688 Smith inherited his position as chief engraver to Godfrey Kneller. He engraved over a hundred plates after Kneller's portraits, giving him access to prominent members of society; who became customers. Sir Godfrey Kneller (1646 - 1723) Portrait painter; born Lübeck, he trained in Amsterdam under Bol (possibly also under Rembrandt). He was based in Rome and Venice from 1672-75 and settled in London in1676. He was appointed Principal Painter to William III and Mary (jointly with Riley) in 1688, retaining office until his death. Kneller was knighted in 1692 and made baronet 1715. He was ap … [Click Below for Full Description]
