VISSCHER, Roemer (1547-1620). Zinne-Poppen; Alle verciert met Rijmen, en sommighe met proze. Amsterdam: Johannes van Ravesteyn, 1669 -- VISSCHER, R. Brabbelingh. Amsterdam: Johannes van Ravesteyn, 1669.

2 works in one volume, 12º (128 x 69mm). First work with etched title and 193 etched emblems by Claes Jansz Visscher. Second work with woodcut device on title. Late 19th-century red morocco gilt by F. Bedford, multiple fillets on sides, spine panels richly tooled and directly lettered, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (spine slightly tarnished). Provenance: Sir Henry Hope Edwardes, 10th Baronet (1829-1900; bookplate).

This small volume combines Visscher's two most important works, the fourth edition of Zinne-Poppen, first published in 1614, and the third edition of Brabbelingh ('Babble' or 'Baby-talk'), his only published volume of poetry. Visscher led the movement for the purification and standardization of the Dutch language. His emblem book is among the foremost published in the Netherlands, showing a strong interest in specifically Dutch themes, while Visscher's engravings are finely detailed. Brabbelingh, which first appeared in 1612, records the often irreverent conversation of the poet and a young friend as they walk the streets of Amsterdam; the third edition was issued without the two plates. De Vries 56; Landwehr, Low Countries 874; Praz 531.
