Item Description: Antverpiae (Antwerpen), no printer ( Nutius ) , 1593, in-folio, 32,7 cm, engraved title + suite of 153 engravings, ( complete). Bound in later boards covered with marbled paper, leather title label on smooth spine. Printed on unwatermarked paper. With some marginal small stains and foxing spots at some pages. Plates 61, 73, and 78 have a restoration at the inner margin, not affecting the engraved image. Plates 81, 98, 104 and 145 have small restorations in the upper margin, also not affecting the engraved image. On the whole a complete and well preserved set of the first edition of the plates illustrating the life of Jeus Christ. This first edition , a real masterpiece of Flemish bookillustration in the 16th century, appeared anonymously in Antwerp in 1593. The publishers were the Antwerp Jesuits **. An explanatory text by Natalis with the plates was published one year after these suite was published (in 1594). The engavings were commissioned by the Headquarter of the Jesuit Order in Rome. From correspondance by Christophe Plantin we know that he was involved in this project from 1587 onwards. But he never published this suite. This was done by the Antwerp Jesuits, the printer was Nutius. Only in 1605 did Plantin's son in law Jan Moretus aquire the plates from Carolus Scribanus - the head of the Antwerp Jesuit College. Antoon Wiericx engraved 58 plates, 57 were done by Hieronymus Wiericx, 17 by Jan Wiericx , 11 by Adriaen Collaert, 9 by Karel de Mallery, 1 by Jan Collaert and 1 by the unkown engraver I.N. The drawings were made by the Roman draughtsman B.Passaro and are preserved in the Brussels Royal Library. ** See Manuel Insolara. La spiritualité en images aux Pays-Bas.Leuven, 1996, pp. 135-141.
