Братья de Bry. 16 век. Алфавит и гравюры.



Братья JOHANN THEODOR DE BRY (1560-1623)и JOHANN ISRAEL DE BRY (1565-1609), сыновья гравера THEODOR DE BRY (1528-1598)
Алфавит и замечательные гравюры из книги 'Emblemata Saecularia' (Frankfurt), 1592г, прижизненное издание.
Про их книгу 'Emblemata Saecularia' уже есть великолепный пост [livejournal.com profile] lufer_lj, там она называется "Emblematum Secularium", издана во Франкфурте в 1627 году, то есть на 35 лет позже. Что интересно- гравюры почти не повторяются, кроме нескольких. Полностью это издание книги я не нашла, может- где-то она и есть, пока неоцифрованная. Зато алфавит- практически все картинки, в очень хорошем разрешении, раньше я видела только несколько картинок из него и хуже качеством.






Вот что они все здесь делают???

Theodor de Bry (1528-98, Johann’s father) had been a goldsmith in Liège who found himself obliged, as a Protestant, to leave that Catholic city in 1570. After living in Strasbourg for several years, he relocated again, to Frankfurt, in 1588, where he established himself as a book-seller and publisher, many of his volumes being illustrated with engravings by his own hand. He was aided in this enterprise by his sons Johann Theodor (1561-1623) and Johann Israël (ca. 1570-1611). The de Bry firm issued almost two hundred books, including a renowned series of illustrated accounts of the Americas, emblem-books, and the mystical & alchemical works of Robert Fludd and Michael Maier.

Johann Theodor de Bry was born in Liège in 1561, the eldest son of the engraver and publisher Theodor de Bry. It was from his father that Johann learned his craft, producing both A branch of Christianity taking its name from Martin Luther (1483-1546), a German theologian who challenged the authority of Rome. For Luther, the Bible was the sole basis of faith. His open dissent led to a break with the Catholic Church. This was the trigger that started the Reformation. After the initial confrontation with the established faith, Lutheranism developed within the divided Reformation movement as a separate Church. De Bry family settled in Frankfurt am Main, a safe haven for Lutherans at this time of religious discord. Together with his father and brother (Johann Israël de Bry), Johann published two popular emblem books. He also produced engravings from celebrated contemporary painters. De Bry died in Frankfurt in 1623.
