Descripción

4to (210 x 155mm), pp. [xlviii], CCCLVII, [1]; woodcut device of the Society on title-page and 151 engraved illustrations; early inscription cut from title page (repaired, with no loss of printed area); else an unusually nice, clean copy in contemporary limp vellum, lacks ties, skilfully rebacked, new endpapers. Second edition: first published at Bologna in 1555 by Bocchi's own academy. In this edition Bonasone's engravings were retouched by the young Agostino Carracci, elder brother of the more famous Annibale: this book was published the year that Agostino began his career, at the age of 17, as an apprentice to Domenico Tibaldi. Great attention to detail characterises this book: as Mortimer points out, the plates were retouched by Carracci whilst it was in the press, and there is evidence of close reading of the text by the printer, with manuscript corrections on ff. C4r, E2r and 2A1r, some of which are corrected in later states of these leaves. Prospero Fontana's designs are often obscure in their iconography: their sources have not yet been fully identified. Two of the most striking are on pp. 166 and 168: they are apparently after a lost drawing of Jupiter abducting Ganymede, made by Michelangelo for Tommaso Cavalieri - see the exhibition catalogue Michelangelo and His Influence (1996, no. 15) where Paul Joannides summarises current critical opinion on the drawing, copies and engravings. Other designs have been identified as being after Raphael and Giulio Romano. These striking illustrations have been shown to have influenced Blake and Samuel Palmer after more than two centuries of neglect. This is the first production of Società Tipografica Bolognese, which was established in 1572 under the direction of Giovanni Rossi, and which existed for ten years. A list of its publications is given in La bibliofila, 23 (1921-22), pp. 95-105. BMC Italian p. 112; Adams B2195; Harvard Mortimer (Italian) 77. N° de ref. de la librería 17211
