Engraved pictorial title of Heraclitus and Democritus and 2 illustrations and 19 circular emblematic engravings partly by Crispijn van de Passe the Younger. Contemporary stamped vellum with central arabesque ornament; (some light browning, some margins sliced in final quire but present, few corners chipped). Rear pastedown with inscription from the library of Van Isaac le Long and dated 1744. Modern armorial bookplate of Bibliotheque I.G. Schorsch on the front pastedown. Dawson’s Bookshop label also affixed on rear pastedown. First edition and scarce variant copy of this classic Dutch poetry and emblem work by Zierikzee native Adriaan Hoffer, which Benesch described as, ".adorned with etchings which in themselves are perfect little works of art, although only slightly connected with the text" (Benesch, Rubens to Daumier p. 39). Hoffer’s work contains poems comprising the author’s self-commentary, Biblical quotes, and notably mentioned the victory of the Spanish silverfleet by Pieter Heyn in 1628, all in verse. Largely written in the vernacular, Hoffer supplemented Latin notes to his poetry through ample marginal references. Hoffer was a wealthy man and book collector with many connections in the Zierikzee community. The Nederduytsche Poëmata was his most important work, which sought to restrict the interest of natural inquiry to its edifying potential. This edition is notable for its engravings by Crispijn van de Passe the Younger, a talented engraver who inherited his father’s style and repertoire and who remains inextricably linked to seventeenth-century Dutch printmaking. Not much else is known about the influence of Hoffer’s Nederduytsche Poëmata or "Dutch Poems," but an earlier work of the same title was written by Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655) and published in Amsterdam by Willem Jansson in 1618.
