Description du livre Routledge & Kegan Paul, London, first edition, 1979, 1979. Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm, viii, 248 pp, ills. From the blurb: "Many of the major books published in the years between 1550 and 1660 - one of the richest periods in English culture - were embellished with an elaborate engraved title-page. From among them Margery Corbett and Ronald Lightbown have selected twenty title-pages which represent all the different branches of learning - theology, philosophy, history, poetry, medicine. Some of the books are among the most famous in the language - the Bible, Chapman's Homer, Raleigh's History of the World, Smith's History of Virginia, Hobbes's Leviathan. We learn that these title-pages were not intended simply as ornaments but as visual epitomes in the emblematic mode of significant aspects of the book. Mrs Corbett and Mr Lightbown show that they were designed by the author and his advisers, and explore the whole world of Renaissance emblematic imagery on which they drew. We see how famous figures used the engraved title-page to express the ideas they had in mind when their books were conceived and written - ideas about the Church and society, philosophy and manners, poetry and drama, science and medicine - so that it affords us an exceptional insight into what they themselves considered was important or attractive in their own creations. The authors have also provided a long general introduction to the world of Renaissance title. Pages and emblematic imagery which is the first of its kind." Rosenblum: "The authors discuss four types of illustrated title pages-those with "a single overall design," those divided into compartments, those with a cartouche, and those arranged architecturally. " Among the other title-pages considered are those for John Dee's 1577 General and Rare Memorials and Henry Peacham's 1622 the Compleat Gentleman.
