Martínez, Enrico.  Los signos del zodiaco: Trece grabados de Artemio Rodríguez y uno, del mismo autor. [Tacámbaro de Codallos, Mexico]: Taller Martín Pescador, 2019. Small 4to (25.5 cm, 10"). 40 pp.
$145.00

Master printer Juan Pascoe of the Taller Martin Pescador explains (p. 1) that the text of this short treatise on astrology comes from pages 25 through 38 of the Repertorio de los tiempos, y historia natural desta Nueva España that the cosmographer and printer Enrico Martinez wrote and published in 1606 in Mexico City. To that text he has added wonderfully striking woodcuts by the T.M.P.'s long-time artist Artemio Rodríguez and a working replica volvelle.
        In his introduction Pascoe tells us about the press that Enrico Martinez used, the later printings of the Repertorio, and the special characters that were recast for this edition "en homenaje a los 480 años de imprenta en México-Tenochtitlán."
        Limited to 150 copies: "Florencia Ramírez compuso las letras de caja Poliphilus Blado, Castellar, con la cruz fourchée tallada por Antionio de Espinosa en 1554 y el punto alargado de Enrico Martínez, 1600. Juan Pascoe y Martín Urbina imprimieron . . . [el libro] sobre papel de hilo De Ponte" (colophon).
