[8], 77pp., [4]. 4to (197 x 157mm). Engraved title vignette and 38 copperplate engraved emblems by Crispin de Passe the Elder derived from Elegantissimorum emblematum corpusculum (no. 64). The circular emblematic engravings are for the "lover of Netherlandish poetry," each with a Latin caption and distich, below a Dutch motto and distich. Contemporary vellum; (some light staining, mostly marginal as engravings remain fresh and bright). From the collection of Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow, their ownership label on front pastedown. First edition of this finely engraved Dutch Emblem book on for the "lover of Netherlandish poetry." In 1589 Crispin de Passe, publisher and engraver, settled in Cologne where he remained until 1611, before fleeing to Utrecht. This work on poetry is one of Crispinís lesser-known works but the engravings are still a fine example of the Utrecht Mannerism style and technique. The 38 emblematic engravings of his figures and scenes are exaggerated in proportion and exist in a vibrating landscape. Utrecht Mannerism is among the most sophisticated and celebrated works of Dutch Art, which forms the "Dawn of the Golden Age." Emblem books flourished after the Renaissance and made use of a vastly wider vocabulary of subject matter, which had become available through the revival of classicism. The emblem book had by far the largest audience amongst the literature of symbolism. Praz, p. 246; Landwehr 9. Bookseller Inventory # D7812
