TELLING TIME IN THE SPANISH GOLDEN AGE
UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT
FROM S. FRANCISCO DE MARBELLA
WITH FINE FULL-PAGE ILLUSTRATIONS
AND A POEM BY LOPE DE VEGA


[HOROLOGY] / [SPANISH] GUTIERREZ, Bartolome. Reloxes. En este trat(ad)o si ponen cosas de Horologiographia. Quiere deçir cosas de la discripçion y fabrica y uso de algunos reloxes solares orizontales y verticales. Marbella, 1610.

Unpublished, illustrated Spanish manuscript on the construction and use of sundials written at the Convento de San Francisco in Marbella in 1610. This handbook on Reloxes, apparently the work of a certain cleric Bartolome Gutierrez, who signed two sections at the rear of the volume (ff. 234 & 236), represents a more practical approach to gnomonics than is usually encountered in this period.

THE BREAD BAKER’S SAINT
& THE BAKER’S GUILD OF BRUSSELS


VAN VEEN, G. D.. Alsoo Myne Heeren die Wethouderen deser Stadt Brussele op den 16. Februarii 1719, aen die van het Broodt-maeckers Ambacht …. Brussels, Antonius Claudinot, 1719.

A fine pen-and-ink drawing and a very rare letterpress broadside, both relating to the baker’s trade in 18th-century Brussels. The drawing of a finial design – perhaps for a liturgical object or architectural element – depicts St. Honoratus of Amiens (d. c. 600), patron saint of bakers, atop an oven tended by bread makers. Included with the drawing is a 1719 broadside relating to the ordinances of the Baker’s Trade (Broodt-maeckers Ambacht) in Brussels.

Augmented edition of THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF VITRUVIUS (1511), the first attempt to establish a critical text of the only surviving ancient architectural treatise, one notoriously difficult for its technical matter and crabbed means of expression.
