The Great Hours of Anne of Brittany, Bourdichon, Jean
14 Bourdichon, Jean The Great Hours of Anne of Brittany
Barcelona Moleiro, S.A. 2009 849640028X / 9788496400283 First Edition Full morocco in box As New 
[c. 1503-1508.] A fine facsimile, limited to 987 copies only. Bound in full black morocco, with solid silver clasps. Contained in a black leather fitted book box. Size: 305 x 200 mm. 476 pages with 49 full-page miniatures. 337 marginal illuminations with plants, insects and small mammals. Painted by Jean Bourdichon, Tours and written in Latin. TOGETHER WITH : Full-colour commentary volume, black cloth with dustwrapper (400 p.) by Marie-Pierre Laffitte (Curator in the department of Manuscripts, Bibliothèque nationale de France), Georges Minois (Historian of Brittany), Michèle Bilimoff (Research engineer in archaeology, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)) and Carlos Miranda García-Tejedor (Doctor in History). All in excellent condition. ["It is undoubtedly a masterpiece of French painting, as is fitting for a manuscript intended for someone who was twice queen of France: with Charles VIII and Louis XII. The folios of this codex feature veritable paintings rather than the miniatures usual in this type of book. Jean Bourdichon painted almost fifty full-page scenes with gold frames upon a ground of parchment dyed black. The Nativity (f. 51v) is one of the most outstanding night scenes ever painted in a book of hours. The supernatural light cast by the star of Bethlehem magically illuminates an image conveying a clear, theological message. Master Bourdichon's talent stands out again in the Flight to Egypt (f. 76v), whose light, atmosphere and dark background of rocky mountains recall Leonardo da Vinci's Virgin of the Rocks. The play of light and shade in a starry night is also masterful in the scene of Judas' kiss (f. 227v); the lamps and torches guide the spectator's gaze so that no detail of the tragic scene is overlooked. Bourdichon enhances the intriguing luminosity of his colours by delicate brushstrokes of gold that highlight garments, weapons, hair, angels' wings, etc. Also noteworthy is the remarkably innovative nature of the calendar featuring not just marginal scenes but full-page paintings interrupted by the framed text beneath the sign of the zodiac of each month. This arrangement was apparently not used in French miniatures prior to Jean Bourdichon except in two manuscripts. The magnificent herbal in the margins of the text folios makes this manuscript a peerless book of hours. The margins of this codex constitute a comprehensive, botanical treatise of more than 330 plants, with their scientific names in Latin at the top of the image and their common names in French at the bottom. Furthermore, this veritable herbal is dotted with brightly-coloured insects and small animals that enhance the beauty and originality of each miniature. This is, in short, two codices in one: a spiritual book for meditation and prayer, and a natural encyclopaedia; a book of hours and a botanical treatise."

19 Callery, Bernadette G. & Mosimann, Elizabeth A. (eds) The Tradition of Fine Bookbinding in the Twentieth Century : Catalogue of an Exhibition, 1979-1980
Pittsburgh Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation 1979 0913196282 / 9780913196281 First Edition Cloth-backed boards Very Good 
Well illustrated, tall slim quarto, pp 129, very clean internally, cloth-backed boards very slightly bumped, spine very slightly marked, otherwise a very good copy. [The preface states "The Tradition of Fine Bookbinding in the Twentieth Century" explores the tension that results from modern craftsmen working in a traditional craft. The twentieth century binder must always contend with traditions of binding structure, material and cover design, and this conflict is compounded when facing the re-binding of an older book. We have attempted to gather representative examples of what we see as the two major divisions of modem binding : the traditional or retrospective approach, and the modem design or intuitive approach where the design is intended to be an expressive extension of the book within. Such distinctions are somewhat arbitrary, and the binders are even less easily categorized than their bindings. Retrospective bindings need not be restrictively imitative. And binders frequently look to historical styles for inspiration even when creating new designs that reflect the artistic tastes of the twentieth century. The requirements of the book itself should also determine some aspects of the binding. All works of value deserve a careful choice of conservation binding techniques. The exquisite twentieth century livre d'artiste and the primary scientific source of the eighteenth century demand equal respect, though different design considerations. Our survey includes selected original examples of major historical styles, countered with a variety of twentieth century bindings, both modem and retrospective. By grouping the bindings according to style, we hope to demonstrate relationships in design and technique which suggest that no modem binder is beyond tradition."]
