About This Item

Paris, Germain Hardouyn, 1518.

8vo [171 x 110 mm] printed on vellum skin of (84) ll. in 11 quires signed A-K by 8 and L by 4. Roman characters, 31 lines. The mark of the Hardouins is printed on l. A1.

17 large figures including the anatomical Man. 21 small illuminated vignettes, 4 illuminated borders. Complete.

Full brown velvet from the 18th century, signs of wear.

Precious Book of Hours printed on vellum skin decorated with 17 full-page engravings illuminated with gold at the time, with 21 small vignettes equally illuminated and with numerous gilt initials on a blue or red background.

The calendar is dated 1518.

Lacombe 290 ; Van Praet Catalogue, p. 112, n°135 ; Brunet, Heures, n°251.

The iconography is composed, besides the printer's mark and the anatomical man, of 16 large full-page figures all colored with shimmering colours and inserted inside gilt framings.

The 16 engravings represent:

- St John the Evangelist.

- Arrest of Jesus.

- Adam and Eve.

- Annunciation.

- Visitation.

- Nativity.

- Annunciation to the Shepherds.

- Adoration of the Magi.

- Presentation at the temple.

- Flight into Egypt.

- Presentation of Mary at the Temple.

- Bathsheba in her bath.

- Resurrection of Lazarus

- Crucifixion.

- Annunciation (of a different manner).

The illustration also contains 21 vignettes hand-colored at the time and illuminated.

This precious Book of Hours entirely rubricated is thus decorated with all its capital letters painted in gold on an alternated red or blue background.

Brunet underlines the rarity of Books of Hours printed by the Hardouins when they are rubricated and illuminated.

" We can find quite precious copies because of the paintings and decorated letters that illustrate them. It appears that those gilt and coloured letters are the work of Germain Hardouyn, 'in arte litteriare peritissimus', as bears the subscription of the Hours of the Virgin, dated 1514 " Brunet, V, 1628.

Gilles Hardouyn settled at the end of the Nostre dame Bridge where he worked from 1509 until 1521.

After this date his associate Germain Hardouyn who was his associate in the bookshop, succeeded him and temporarily occupied his home. He himself printed until 1528.

Precious copy illuminated on vellum skin, coming from the library of Montalembert with ex-libris and stamp of the Earl of Montalembert.

Brunet souligne la rareté des livres d'Heures imprimés par les Hardouin lorsqu'ils sont rubriqués et enluminés.

" Il se trouve des exemplaires assez précieux à cause des peintures et des lettres ornées qui les décorent. Il paraît que ces lettres en or et en couleur sont l'ouvrage de Germain Hardouyn, 'in arte litteriare peritissimus', ainsi que le porte la souscription des Heures de la Vierge, à la date de 1514 " Brunet, V, 1628.

Gilles Hardouyn s'établit au bout du pont Nostre dame où il exerça de 1509 jusqu'en 1521.

Après cette année son associé Germain Hardouyn qui avait été son associé dans la librairie, lui succéda et occupa momentanément son domicile. Il imprima lui-même jusqu'en 1528.

Précieux exemplaire enluminé sur peau de vélin, provenant de la Bibliothèque de Montalembert avec ex-libris et cachet du Comte de Montalembert.
