Description:

"The Renaissance of the fifteenth century was, in many things,great rather by what it designed then by what it achieved" (Walter Pater)PATER, Walter. The Renaissance. Studies in Art and Poetry.

Limited to 2,000 copies signed by Martino Mardersteig, this being no. 1397.Large quarto (11 5/8 x 8 5/8 inches; 295 x 219 mm.). 278 pp. With eight mounted color plates including examples of the work of Sandro Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Raphael and Fra Angelico.Publisher's écru linen over red patterned paper boards, spine with red cloth label lettered in gilt. A fine copy housed in the publisher's red cloth slipcase with printed paper label on spine.Walter Horatio Pater (1839-1894) was an English essayist, literary and art critic, and writer of fiction. As a schoolboy Pater read John Ruskin's Modern Painters, which helped inspire his lifelong attraction to the study of art and gave him a taste for well-crafted prose. He gained a school exhibition, with which he proceeded in 1858 to Queen's College, Oxford. The opportunities for wider study and teaching at Oxford, combined with formative visits to the Continent - in 1865 he visited Florence, Pisa and Ravenna - meant that Pater's pre-occupations now multiplied. He became acutely interested in art and literature, and started to write articles and criticism. First to be printed was an essay on the metaphysics of Coleridge, 'Coleridge's Writings', contributed anonymously in 1866 to the Westminster Review. A few months later his essay on Winckelmann (1867), an early expression of his intellectual and artistic idealism, appeared in the same review, followed by 'The Poems of William Morris' (1868), expressing his admiration for romanticism. In the following years the Fortnightly Review printed his essays on Leonardo da Vinci (1869), Sandro Botticelli (1870), and Michelangelo (1871). The last three, with other similar pieces, were collected in his Studies in the History of the Renaissance (1873), renamed in the second and later editions The Renaissance: Studies in Art and Poetry. The Leonardo essay contains Pater's celebrated reverie on the Mona Lisa ("probably still the most famous piece of writing about any picture in the world"); the Botticelli essay was the first in English on this painter, contributing to the revival of interest in this artist. An essay on 'The School of Giorgione' (Fortnightly Review, 1877), added to the third edition (1888), contains Pater's much-quoted maxim "All art constantly aspires towards the condition of music" (i.e. the arts seek to unify subject-matter and form, and music is the only art in which subject and form are seemingly one). The final paragraphs of the 1868 William Morris essay were reworked as the book's 'Conclusion'.Limited Editions Club Bibliography, 496. Bookseller Inventory #
