Large armorial bookplate of Edward Francis Searles (1841-1920), his no. 2111. Searles was a Massachusetts-native and successful interior and architectural designer with a "connoisseur’s library" of rare books. Modern armorial bookplate of Bibliotheque I.G. Schorsch on the front flyleaf. Giovio’s original Dialogo dell’imprese was written as a dialogue between him and his friend Ludovico Domenichi (1515-1564). His was the first treatise devoted entirely to imprese, those personal devices that exemplified sixteenth-century thought on self. First published in 1555 in an unillustrated duodecimo edition, Paolo Giovio’s Dialogo dell’imprese was not issued in the present format until 1559 by Rouille in Lyon. It was first presented in a joint edition with Gabriello Simeoni’s emblems in 1561, again with Rouille, and then reprinted in 1574, as here. Simeoni’s text replaced Giovio’s historical text with "moral testratichs" of his own invention and he added his own imprese and prose commentary. The result was two emerging, different publishing and editing approaches, which led to increasingly exact identification of the specific traits of imprese. Giovio’s example informed not only subsequent imprese treatises, but also books of "heroic" emblems. Their form in Italian social circles, as a type of browsable museum of famous people, remained familiar for some time. Brunet calls this a "jolie édition." A Bibliography of French Emblem Books of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries (1999) locates seventeen copies in US institutions. Praz p. 353; Landwehr Romanic 345.
