            Emblèmes ou devises chrestiennes. Monumenta Emblematum Christianorum virtutum, tum politicarum, tum œconomicarum chorum, centuria una adumbrantia. Rhythmis Gallicis elegantissimis primum conscripta, figuris æneis incisa, ... a G.

de Montenay, Georgette [French author of Emblemes ou devises chrestiennes, published in Lyon between 1567 and 1571. Montenay has always been regarded as a lady-in-waiting to Jeanne d'Albret, the Protestant Queen of Navarre, partly because she dedicated her work to the Queen. An intriguing aspect of Montenay's Calvinist life is that she was married in 1562 to Guyon de Gout, a devout Catholic]. Pierre Woeiriot de Bouzey (1532-1596?) was a French engraver, goldsmith, painter, sculptor and medallist.

(Book #ID 93528)

Imprimes es frays de lean Charles Vnckel Libraire a Francfort au Mayn, 1619. 1619.

Contemporary vellum covers. 12mo. 7¼'' x 4¾''. Contains illustrated title, 447 pp, frontiespiece of Georgette de Montenay (1567) by Pierre Woeiriot. The Prefatory and Back Matter are reproduced from a copy in the Bodleian Library by Alison Adams. Georgette de Montenay's work occupies a particularly important position in the history of emblems: firstly, of course, it was written by a woman, and secondly that woman was a member of the Reformed (Calvinist) faith. Indeed Montenay claims that her book gives us the first Christian emblems ('...je croy estre premier chrestiens'). This claim needs to be taken in the context of Montenay's position among Protestants, who at this period, had undergone some kind of personal conversion, 'Renez par l'Evangile'. Earlier emblematic works are of course also Christian, often very overtly so, if not in quite the same way (e.g. Claude Paradin's Devises heroiques (Lyons:, 1551; 1557). Nevertheless, Montenay's Emblemes mark the beginning of the systematic exploitation of emblems for religious propaganda. It is also the first emblem book to use incised engravings (by Pierre Woeiriot) rather than woodcuts for the picturae. It is distinctive for the way in which it calls on the reader to recognise and often complete biblical allusions, both verbal and visual. This edition of 1619 printed in Frankfurt in which, although French resumes its position beneath the pictura, a second Latin version is added, as well as versions in Spanish, Italian, German, English and Dutch (a different version from that by Anna Roemers Visscher). This edition is found with title pages in all these languages apart from Dutch. Notable is the fact that the same engravings are used in the three editions, so the plates must have been transported first from Lyons to Zurich and subsequently to Frankfurt. The 1567/1571 edition is reissued in La Rochelle, a notable Protestant centre, in 1620. Illustrated title, 100 engraved emblems in text by Pierre Woeriot, most printed recto only, Page 102 does not have the modified version of emblem 18 pasted over the original, showing the phallic symbol. Pages 242-244 and emblem 53 mis-placed after page 248. Emblem 55 to page 250 incorrectly labled as emblem 56, and misplaced after page 256. Front joint exposed. Member of the P.B.F.A.

            Letters of Junius | Stat nominis umbra

Philo Junius [Attributed to Sir Philip Francis GCB (22 October 1740 - 23 December 1818) was an Irish-born British politician and pamphleteer, thought to be the author of the Letters of Junius, and the chief antagonist of Warren Hastings]

(Book #ID 105677)

Printed By T. Bensley, for Vernor and Hood, Birchin Lane, London 1797. 1797.

Uniform matching hard back binding in nineteenth century half dark green leather with wide fold-ins, the spine divided into six panels, lettered in the second and fourth, tooling to the others, dated at the foot, tea green cloth sides, all page edges gilt, pale blue and rose marble paper end sheets. 8vo. 8½'' x 5½''. Junius was the pseudonym of a writer who contributed a series of political letters critical of the government of King George III to the Public Advertiser, from 21 January 1769 to 21 January 1772 as well as several other London newspapers such as the London Evening Post. The collection of private and open letters were from an anonymous polemicist (Junius) claimed by some to be Philip Francis, as well as other letters in-reply from people to whom Junius had written between 1769 and 1772. The collection was published in two volumes in 1772 by Henry Sampson Woodfall, the owner and editor of a London newspaper, the Public Advertiser. The collection includes 69 letters, 29 to the Printer of the Public Advertiser originally intended for public readership, with the remaining 40 to individuals, then made public. It included letters written by Philo Junius, who, some say, was Junius himself. Contains Engraved title pages (xl), 325; 366 pp with 15 full-page monochrome historical figure engravings. The engravings are without tissue papers and have left off-setting to the text block opposite, sun darkening of the leather down the spines.
