WITH REPURPOSED HYPNEROTOMACHIAN WOODBLOCKS MARTIAL, Marcus Valerius.
Epigram. [epigrammatum] libri magna diligentia nuperrime castigati, adiectis doctissimis commentariis illustrium virorum Domitii Chalderini atque Georgii Merulae … accedunt his omnibus complura adnotamenta ex Angelo Politiano aliisque praestantissimis viris excerpta, ac ipsius authoris vita ab eruditissimo viro Petro Crinito fidelissime collecta.
A handsome early Lyons edition of Martial’s epigrams, with the commentaries of Calderino, Merula, and Poliziano, and illustrated with sixteen attractive woodcuts by Guillaume le Roy. Le Roy’s blocks, previously used to illustrated a 1510 Lyons Ovid, are copied from the unattributed woodcuts used to illustrate the 1497 Giunta Metamophoses, ‘the style [of which] suggests that of the famous Aldine Hypnerotomachia Poliphili which was to follow two years later’ (Mortimer). Even in this new context in the only Morin edition of Martial’s epigrams, the woodcuts lose none of their charm and vivacity.
PATRIOTIC PARKS OF PARIS ROBINSON, W.
The Parks and Gardens of Paris, considered in Relation to the Wants of other Cities and of public and private Gardens, being Notes on a Study of Paris Gardens … third Edition, illustrated.
Third edition of an attractively illustrated guide to the parks and gardens of Paris. The gardener and horticulturalist William Robinson (1838–1935) combines descriptions of the green spaces of the city with observations on the methods of their maintenance, and compares French horticulture with its English equivalent. Though he staunchly insists on English superiority (ODNB notes that he was a ‘belligerent and capricious character’ whom Lutyens found ‘boring and cantankerous’), Robinson acknowledges the particular skills of French gardeners in fruit-culture, which he advocates adopting in England.
