Perisin (Persinus) or Perrisim, Jacques
Perisin (Persinus) Or Perrisim, Jacques a French engraver, was born, according to Nagler, in 1530. In concert with Jean Tortorel, he designed and engraved, partly on wood and partly on copper, a set of twenty-four large prints to illustrate a History of the Wars of the Huguenots, 1559 to 1570. This book is exceedingly rare. The copper plates are etched in a coarse and incorrect style; the wooden cuts are executed with more attention. When Perisin and Tortorel engraved in concert, they marked their prints with the second monogram. When Perisin engraved alone, he used the first monogram. Malpe attributes to the latter a series of Tritons and marine monsters, small pieces lengthways, marked with his monogram reversed.
