PAIR of copper engravings by the early Flemish artist JOHANNES STRADANUS (also known as Johannes van der Straet), born 1523, died 1605. Each measures 8" by 10 1/2" (16" by 18" in identical silvery contemporary frames). One image is titled "Staphae, Sive Stapedes", the other "Ser Sive Sericus Vermis". These works date to about the year 1590 or 1591. They are numbered 8 and 9, part of Nova Reperta, a series of 20 images that illustrated important discoveries of the Renaissance. Philip Galle translated original works into the engravings we see. Both works show evidence of their advanced age, particularly "Ser Sive Sericus...", which shows wear at bottom including two possible very small holes, old edge tears (possibly repaired), discoloration, and some paper loss, which has apparently eradicated the last letter of "SE(R)" and some of the letters at lower left. The other print is in much better condition, with a small crease at bottom and a tiny perfectly round hole at bottom edge near the fillet. Compare with others online at 1,200 Euros each.
