Bleyswijck, François van (1671-1746) - GEDICHTEN VAN JACOB ZEEUS

Frontispiece to the first edition of 'GEDICHTEN VAN JACOB ZEEUS', collection of poetry by Jakob Zeeus (1686-1718). A muse sitting on the left beside a grave, holding a lyre on her lap. Some putti at her feet playing with a book. Another putto hanging a laurel wreath on the grave. On the right a personification of a river and the ruins of a castle in the background. Above in the clouds a Fama playing a trumpet. The original plate was published as dating 1720 and bearing a different inscription on the grave. This was in fact the grave of Arnold Mooen and the frontispiece was employed for his own collection of poetry. The publisher likely modified the plate and adapted it to the new publication. Lettered below the composition: 'Te DELFT by REINIER BOITET. 1721', signed further below: 'F. Bleyswyck jnven & Fecit'. The title page is also included in this lot; Bleyswijck etched also a very nice vignette included in the title page, with a poet seated at a table, composing poems in front of a large library. l (Frontispiece) Etching and engraving on paper with some margin; plate mark: 186 x 140 mm, total: 201 x 158; paper cooked especially on the top left side, some soiling due to handling, yet interesting print.
