About this Item

4to: [8],205,[3]pp, with full-page engraved coat-of-arms, portrait of "Octavio Vaenius," and 103 engraved emblems with mottoes in Latin and stanzas in French below each plate and verses in Latin, Italian, Dutch and French on verso of preceding plate. Contemporary sprinkled calf, very skillfully rebacked, spine in six compartments between raised bands with central printer's ornament in blind, recent blue morocco lettering piece gilt, title page in red and black with portrait medallion. Provenance: Crawfurd Antrobus (armorial book plate on front paste down). An excellent, well-margined copy with several old well-executed paper repairs to short closed tears, mostly marginal; few marginal stains, else clean, fresh, and bright, plates in deep, rich impressions, in handsome period binding. Landwehr, Low Countries, 680 (for the identical Brussels Foppens edition of 1683). Praz II, p.168-69. First of the Brussels Foppens editions of Veen's enduringly popular "Emblems from Horace" (principally from the Odes and Satires), a classic of the emblematic literature, originally published, in Antwerp, in 1607, then reprinted in numerous editions with polyglot text, ensuring it a Europe-wide readership. Van Veen was among the most important Dutch emblematists of the 17th-century, as well as Antwerp's leading artist and dean of the painters' guild of St. Luke. Peter Paul Rubens entered his studio, in 1594 or 1595, as an apprentice, and Veen's role as a classically educated humanist artist (a pictor doctus) influenced Rubens deeply. N. B.
