Description

Title Page - Venice: This leaf is from the "Iconologia Di Cesare Ripa" published in 1659 by Nicolo Pezzana. The leaf measures 220 x 160 mm. and contains 17-lines of text surrounding by a detailed steel engraving of fleur-de-les and cherubs. The "Iconologia", originally published in 1593, alphabetically arranged classical and baroque symbolism. It was used both by viewers of art as well as by artists wishing to employ complex iconography in their work. Cesare Ripa was the pseudonym for Giovanni Campani, although not a professional scholar, he was associated with literary academies in Siena and Perugia writing as a leisure pursuit when not working as majordomo to Cardinal Antonio Maria Salvini. The verso is blank. There is minor foxing and soiling.
