Beerbohm (Max) Mr W. Rothenstein doing nothing, circa 1910-1920. Beerbohm

Beerbohm (Max) Mr W. Rothenstein doing nothing, graphite on laid paper, title inscribed lower centre, and further inscription centre left, 195 x 180 mm. (7 3/4 x 7 1/8 in), [circa 1910-1920] ⁂ Beerbohm first met the artist William Rothenstein while in Oxford in the 1890s, where the latter had gone to work on the series of lithographic portraits "Oxford Characters". Another caricature by Beerbohm of Rothenstein was offered at Christie's in 1995 (see: Christie's, Modern British & Irish Pictures, March 23rd, 1995, Lot 265), and shows a closely modelled profile that Beerbohm clearly enjoyed portraying; similarly the 1906 caricature previously in the collection of Herbert D. Schimmel features Rothenstein portrayed in the same manner alongside Albert Rutherston. Beerbohm (Max), Mr W.

Balbi (Girolamo) De futuris Caroli Augusti successibus Vaticinium

Balbi (Girolamo) De futuris Caroli Augusti successibus Vaticinium, collation: a-b3, woodcut architectural title border, disbound, 4to, Bologna, in Aedibus Io. Baptistae Phaeli, November 1529. ⁂ ?First edition: USTC and Censimento distinguish two editions of 1529, both from the same Bologna press of G-B Faelli, a without month-dated version, of eight leaves, located in two copies only, at Bologna and Treviso probably has priority. The other, probably later edition of seven leaves, dated November 1529, is located by Censimento at Bologna, Perugia, Rome/Allesandrina and Vatican, Treviso, Venice/Marciana, and Harvard; USTC adds Orihuela (Sicily), but omits Harvard, and there is also a copy in the British Library (not on COPAC). Balbi is one of the first wave of major Italian humanist poets, whose long-lived career - like so many others' - spanned an unruly wandering youth, a court-haunting middle-age, and an ecclesiastical winding-up. Venetian by birth, educated at Rome under Pomponius Laetus and at Ferrara under Lucas Ripa, he migrated to Paris in 1485, where he later obtained a position at the University. Before that (1486-87) he had broken into print with a volume of original epigrams (many of them 'tres-licencieuses': NBG), which saw several editions, and gained him the praise of Cornelis Gerard, as 'the only modern poet fit to walk in the footsteps of the ancients' (Contemporaries of Erasmus, citing a letter of Gerard to Erasmus, who 'did not share his opinion'). Jozef Ijsewijn (Companion to Neo-Latin Studies (1990), p. 129) links Balbi with Philip Beroualdus and Fausto Andrelini as 'prophets of a new era' in converting the French neo-Latinists to the stylistic elegance of Petrarch, Bruni, and Poggio, but the Venetian was run out of town after polemical attacks on a sequence of colleagues, and next tried his luck briefly in England. By 1493 he was at Vienna, where he taught law and literature, but got in trouble again and moved on to Prague. There he prospered, becoming tutor to the children of the Hungarian King Vladislav II, and remained in the service of his successor Louis II from 1516 to 1522, largely as a diplomatist in Turkish affairs. He performed similar missions for the Emperor Ferdinand I (1522), and - having at some point taken orders - in 1523 was made Bishop of Goritz or Gurck in Corinthia. In 1524 he was back in Rome as domestic chaplain to Pope Clement VII, and attended the coronation of Charles V at Bologna in 1530, which he here celebrates in anticipatory prophetic verses ('vaticinium')-- to be followed up three months later by an 'assez curieux' longer work, De coronatione (Bologna 1530, and several reprints). He also co-edited Seneca (which Erasmus, the great rival editor, disparaged), and wrote a history of the Turkish empire. His Opera poetica, oratoria, et politica was edited by J. de Retzer at Vienna in 1791-92; a new edition, ed. A. F. W. Sommer, is in progress. Literature: Not in Adams; EDIT 16 CNCE 3937.
