T'Antwerpen: Inde Plantijnsche Druckerije, by Ian Moerentorf, 1602. |~||~||~||~| A complete copy of this rare and attractive emblem book, in the version issued without text, accompanied by an incomplete copy of the version published by Plantin with the text. This text version has an extra part with a particularly splendid illustrated title page. The illustrations, many of which are quite surreal, are by Theodore Galle (1571-1633), although those in the version without text were presumably copies made by his son, Jan (1600-1676), whose name appears on the title-page. The text version lacks 11 text leaves in addition to the 31 plates mentioned above. Generally good copies of both, spine worn on Ad. 1. PROVENANCE of Ad. 1: Early ownership inscription on front past-down. Bibliotheque Schorsch, with armorial bookplate on front pastedown. Landwehr, J. Emblem Books in the Low Countries 1554-1949. A Bibliography. No. 132. Landwehr, J. Emblem & Fable Books (3rd ed.) 184.
