NUOVO LIBRO DI CARATTERI DIVERSI DE SCRITTURA FORMATA, E CORSIVA PERFETTA AD USO PRATTICO E MODERNO ED INTAGLIATTI DA DE BEREY IN PARIGGI
Torino: Reycends & Guibert, 1722. contemporary blue wrappers. Calligraphy. oblong folio. contemporary blue wrappers. 26 engraved leaves (of 28). Text in Italian. A manual by Italian writing master Pitois. One of a number of his works produced in Turin by Reycends Brothers and the book/mapseller firm Guibert. At the beginning of the 18th century, the Rome-Venice hegemony in penmanship was waning, due to growing French influence in calligraphy. This slant towards French taste is revealed in the "Moderno" of the title and the fact that most of the twenty-six leaves are marked as engraved in Paris by artist Claude-Auguste de Berey. From 1690 to 1730 de Berey, or Berey, engraved the plates for several well-known French works on calligraphy. All the firm's writing manuals printed at this time were engraved in Paris (Barker, p. 147). Two leaves lacking. Soiled, margins chipped, old fold at center. Marks in ink throughout.
