Publisher

Venice: The Sons of Aldus,

Date

1554.

Description

This copy of Cataneo’s four books on architecture was owned by and bound for Charles-Henry Comte d’Hoym (1694–1736). Comte d’Hoym employed a number of binders during his career as a collector, but this simple binding, featuring his gilt arms on French calf covers, was likely executed by Jacques Girou in the 1730s. The Grolier Club printed a biography of Comte d’Hoym in 1899, and the manuscript catalogue of his library is held by The Grolier Club.
