The book was instrumental in spreading the study of Greek throughout France. The first edition was originally published in 1529, but this definitive edition is enlarged by more than one-third from notes left by Guillaume Budé, one of the greatest Renaissance contributors to the study of Greek antiquity. Indeed, Budé's "Commentarii" formed the basis for the study of the Greek language in France, and served as the basis of Henri Estienne's "Thesaurus Graecae linguae" (Schreiber). For more information, see: Schreiber 100. Renouard 71, no. 7. Adams B3096. PMM no. 60 (1529 ed.).Binding partly darkened, rubbed and age-toned. Front cover warped.

About the publisher: Robert Estienne (1503-1559) was a 16th-century printer and classical scholar in Paris. He was a former Catholic who became a Protestant late in his life and the first to print the Bible divided into standard numbered verses (from Wikipedia).*Johann Gottfried Schweighäuser (1776-1844) was a renown French philologist and archaeologist who, in 1812, became a professor at the Protestant seminary in Strasbourg. In 1822, he became a correspondent member of the "Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres." (From Wikipedia). Second edition completely revised and greatly expanded.

         El felicissimo viaje d'el muy alto y muy poderoso Principe Don Phelippe, hijo d'el Emperador Don Carlos Quinto Maximo, desde España à sus tierras dela Baxa Alemaña: con la descripcion de todos los estados de Brabante y Flandes. Escrito en quatro libros, ...Antwerp, Martinus Nutius I, 1552 (colophon 25 May 1552). Small folio (27 x 19.5 cm). With the woodcut arms of Charles V on title-page, a full-page woodcut triumphal arch erected in Ghent for Philip's entry, Nutius's woodcut device at the end, and dozens of woodcut decorated initials (4 series). Near contemporary limp vellum, with 6 fragments of a 16th-century manuscript reinforcing the spine of the bookblock, blind- and (later) gold-tooled spine.

      Adams C264; Belg. Typ. 539; Iberian books 2403; Landwehr, Splendid ceremonies 14; Palau 40491. First (and only early) edition, in the original Spanish, of an eyewitness account of the future King Philip II of Spain's travels from Spain through Italy and the German states to the Low Countries from 1548 to 1550 or 1551, intended as preparation for the duties he would face when he succeeded to (in the event only some of) the titles of his father, the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, who was also King Charles I of Spain. The Aragon humanist scholar Juan Cristóbal Calvete de Estrella (ca. 1510/20?-1593) served in the Spanish court of Charles V, who appointed him tutor to Prince Philip (1527-1598) in 1541. He accompanied Philip on these travels, so that his book forms an essential primary source for both the life and personality of the future King Philip II, who was to bring Spain its golden age and its greatest power and wealth, and for the early beginnings of his relations with the Netherlands, which was to revolt against the King, bring about Spain's fall from power and develop its own golden age as an independent state. Calvete de Estrella remained in Antwerp when Philip returned to Spain, having his book printed there. It is an excellent piece of book production, anticipating the role Antwerp was to play as Europe's leading centre of printing and publishing.With an early marginal manuscript note and occasional later (mostly pencil) notes and marks. With a small worm trail in the inner foot margin of about 40 leaves, not approaching the text, and faint marginal water stains in the last and first three leaves, but still in very good condition. The cover has nearly come loose from the bookblock, has some tears and stains, has lost its 2 pair of ties and the endpapers are tattered.

         Omnia Divini Platonis Opera tralatione Marsilii Ficini. emendatione, et ad graecum codicem collatione Simonis Grynaei, summa diligentia repurgata

      Antonium Vincentium (Godefr. - Marcellus Beringi), 1548. In-folio (348x215mm), pp. (40) di indice tricolonne preliminare, 646, legatura antica in p. pergamena rigida con titolo calligrafato anticamente su dorso a 3 nervi rilevati. Tagli spruzzati. Marca tipografica al titolo Le cc. 617-618 e 621-622 sono anteposte. Ex-libris manoscritto in data 1803 al titolo. Qualche sporadica e ininfluente brunitura. Ottimo esemplare. Inconsueta cinquecentina lionese (esemplata sull'edizione del froben del 1532) del corpus completo delle opere di Platone nella classica traduzione latina di Marsilio Ficino, la prima e più importante di ogni epoca. Il sommo umanista avviò la sua traduzione platonica nel 1462, dopo aver studiato il greco con il Platina, per volere di Cosimo de' Medici, raccogliendo attorno a sé nella villa di Careggi una schiera di dotti e di fatto fondando quello che sarà il preludio all'Accademia fiorentina sviluppatasi sotto Lorenzo il Magnifico. Compiuta nel 1477, l'opera segnò in modo determinante la rivalutazione, anche in chiave cristiana, del pensiero platonico (e il conseguente tentativo di un connubio tra platonismo e cristianesimo sistematizzato nella sua massima opera, la "Theologia Platonica") ed è tra le più alte produzioni letterarie e speculative dell'Umanesimo, di capitale importanza nella storia della cultura rinascimentale. Ad essa risale la moderna diffusione e conoscenza del pensiero platonico, limitate in età medievale al solo "Timeo". La prima edizione apparve a Firenze nel 1484, precedendo l'editio princeps del testo greco, edita da Aldo Manuzio nel 1513. Alla presente impressione lionese è premessa una lettera dedicatoria di Simon Grynaeus [Gryner] (Veringenstadt, 1543-Basilea, 1541)), teologo protestante, grecista e latinista tedesco, compagno di studi di Melantone e assiduo corrispondente di Erasmo e di Calvino, seguita da una lettera del Ficino a Lorenzo de Medici, dalla sua vita di Platone, dal suo avviso al lettore e da tre quartine in lingua greca.

(old stamps and owners entries on title page, first 30 pp. stained and slightly moulded, sporadic foxing; annotations and corrections in a contemporary hand) First edition of this "work of miscellaneous content, dealing with various medical, physical, and astrological questions". Thorndike IV, p.399-405. Galeotto Marzio da Narni (1427-1490?) was from 1461 to 1486 librarian of the famous library of King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary. He was also favoured by Louis XI of France, according to Gabriel Naudé. Galeotto Marzio finished 'De doctrina promiscua' ca. 1490, and dedicated the book to Lorenzo di Medici il Magnifico in the hope of finding a new mecenas. Laurentius Torrentinus, (1499-1563) from the Netherlands' province of Brabant, famous printer to Duke Cosimo de Medici. In his introduction he gives two reasons for publishing this work: firstly the importance of Galeotti Marzio and his knowledge; and secondly to praise the Medici family (from whose library he had extracted the manuscript).

First (and only early) edition, in the original Spanish, of an eyewitness account of the future King Philip II of Spain's travels from Spain through Italy and the German states to the Low Countries from 1548 to 1550 or 1551, intended as preparation for the duties he would face when he succeeded to (in the event only some of) the titles of his father, the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, who was also King Charles I of Spain. The Aragon humanist scholar Juan Cristóbal Calvete de Estrella (ca. 1510/20?-1593) served in the Spanish court of Charles V, who appointed him tutor to Prince Philip (1527-1598) in 1541. He accompanied Philip on these travels, so that his book forms an essential primary source for both the life and personality of the future King Philip II, who was to bring Spain its golden age and its greatest power and wealth, and for the early beginnings of his relations with the Netherlands, which was to revolt against the King, bring about Spain's fall from power and develop its own golden age as an independent state. Calvete de Estrella remained in Antwerp when Philip returned to Spain, having his book printed there. It is an excellent piece of book production, anticipating the role Antwerp was to play as Europe's leading centre of printing and publishing.With an early marginal manuscript note and occasional later (mostly pencil) notes and marks. With a small worm trail in the inner foot margin of about 40 leaves, not approaching the text, and faint marginal water stains in the last and first three leaves, but still in very good condition. The cover has nearly come loose from the bookblock, has some tears and stains, has lost its 2 pair of ties and the endpapers are tattered.

Small 4to in 8s (18.0 x 14 cm). Title-page with woodcut Portuguese royal coat of arms and a 4-piece woodcut border, and further with some woodcut initials. Modern richly gold-tooled red morocco, boards gold-tooled in a panel design, with earlier brass clasps and catchplates.

      Cordier, Sinica, col. 2063; Lach, Asia and the making of Europe I, p. 330 & 748; Porbase (5 copies, incl. 1 incomplete); R. Loureiro, " in: Christian-Muslim relations: a bibliographical history VI, pp. 369-375; USTC 346100 (5 copies); WorldCat (3 copies); cf. Boxer, South China in the sixteenth century. Very rare first edition of "the first European book devoted exclusively to China" (Lach). A highly important work, the first printed book published in the West on the subject, serving as the primary source on China for European authors and their readers -- most of whom never set foot in the East -- for many decades following its publication. Including an account of a chronicle of the kings of Hormuz, based on a Persian or Arabic manuscript now lost, and thus "an irreplaceable source for the early history of the kingdom of Hormuz" (Loureiro), and a chapter on the Chinese Islamic communities in China.In 1548 Gaspar da Cruz, along with ten fellow Dominican friars, departed for Portuguese India with the purpose of establishing a mission in the East. Cruz visited Goa, Chaul, Kochi, and Portuguese Ceylon. In 1554 Cruz was in Malacca and then left for Cambodia in a (failed) attempt to found a mission there. In 1556 he was in Canton bay on the island of Lampacao and later went to Canton itself to preach. Cruz left China in 1560, sailed to Hormuz and stayed there for three years. In 1565 he sailed back to Goa and returned home to Lisbon in the next year. His Tractado provides a highly unusual and remarkable eyewitness account of Ming China, including many details never before published in the West. Comparing the work to the more renown account of Marco Polo's travels to Asia, Boxer remarks: "there can be no doubt that the Portuguese friar [Cruz] gives us a better and clearer account of China as he saw it than did the more famous Italian traveler" (Boxer)With a couple manuscript annotations and underscoring (one shaved). Some restorations (to title-page, leaves a2, d3, e4, e5 and f8, quires a, b and k, and a few tiny corners), faint water stains in the head margins and washed. Still a good copy.

         Hamisha Humshei Torah | Hamesh Megilot | Haftarot. (Mikra'ot Gedolot).

      Venice Daniel Bomberg 1548 - Folio (31 x 23 cm). ff. 371, 26 (as many others, bound without the title page for the Five Scrolls - f. 344), with divisional title page for Haftarot; trimmed with occasional marginal loss at the top to leaf numbers, tears to two leaves with minimal loss of text. Modern brown calf boards, embossed floral ornaments and gilt title to spine, matching calf and red cloth slipcase; library stamps, previous owners' signatures; inscription by a censor from Bologna on second to last page (f. 25) partially lost due to trimming. Third edition of Bomberg's Rabbinic Bible, which includes the five books of the Torah, bound together with Haftarot and Hamesh Megilot. With Targum Onkeles and commentaries by Rashi, Nachmanides and the First Edition of the super-commentary on Nachmanides by Isaac Aboab. In 1516, Daniel Bomberg, a wealthy Christian, was granted the privilege of publishing Hebrew books in Venice. Among the first works he printed in 1516-17 was the Mikra'ot Gedolot [Rabbinic Bible], a folio edition of the entire Bible with commentaries. Pope Leo X gave his imprimatur for this book and Felix Pratensis, a monk who had been born a Jew, was the editor. Bomberg published the edition in response to growing interest in the Hebrew language and the Bible among learned Christians. The commentaries by Rashi, Nahmanides and Gersonides attracted some Jewish readers, but the editorship of an apostate and the blessing of the Pope led many Jews to avoid the 1516-17 edition. However, the second edition, published in Venice in 1524-5 and incorporating the work of the Tunisian refugee Jacob b. Chayim, was more successful, as was a third edition published in 1546-48.

         Συμμίκτον, sive, Miscellaneorum decas una.

      Godefroy and Marcellin Beringen. In 8°; mezza pergamena tardo seicentesca, tassello con titolo in oro al dorso, piatti marmorizzati; pp. 263, (1). Marca editoriale al frontespizio. Macchie di umidità al margine inferiore nella parte centrale del volume, ma nel complesso buona copia. RISTAMPA della prima edizione di Lovanio (pubblicata lo stesso anno) della raccolta di saggi filologici, in prevalenza presentati dall'umanista belga nel corso delle sue lezioni presso il Collegium Trilingue di Lovanio. "Sans être volumineux, ce receuil est l'un de ceux qui ont le plus contribué à établir la renommée philologique de son auteur; il donne en effet, une idée générale de sa sagacité, de la moderation de son caractère et de l'étendue de son erudition" (A. Polet, Une gloire de l'humanisme belge Petrus Nannius, Louvain, 1936, p. 144). L'opera is apre con la dedica al politico inglese William Paget datata 1 giugno 1548 (cf. Oxford Bibliographical Society, Proceedings e Papers, 1927, I, p. 210). I dieci libri del volume contengono un'interpretazione di Terenzio (Libri I e II); un commento ad Orazio (Libro III: contiene inoltre un resoconto della scoperta di quattro antichi manoscritti di Oratio nella biblioteca del monastero benedettino di San Pietro, a Gand, o "Mont Blandin". Questi sono I cosiddetti "Blandinian manuscripts", che andarono distrutti nell'incendiò del monastero nel 1566); un'interpretazione di alcuni passi delle Satire e delle Epistole di Orazio (Libro IV); commenti ad alcuni brani di Livio (Libro V); un commento ad alcuni passaggi della Bucolica e dell'Eneide di Virgilio (Libri VI e VII); una difesa di Erasmo contro Robortello (Libro VIII, vedi sotto); il commento ad alcuni passaggi di Cicerone (Libro IX) e diversi commentari sulla geologia, sull'etimologia, sulla grammatica comparata, sull'astronomia antica, sulla storia e sul diritto romano (Libro X) (cf. L. Laureys, Petrus Nannius als Philologe und Literaturkritiker im Lichte seines Kommentar's zur "Ars Poetica' des Horaz, in: "Transformations of the Classics via Early Modern Commentaries", A.E. Enekel, ed., Leiden, 204, pp. 91-110). L'umanista italiano Franceso Robortello, soprannominato "Canis grammaticus" (cane della grammatica) per il suo atteggiamento esigente e conflittuale, nell'opera "Variorum locorum annotationes (1543)" critica alcune delle parafrasi degli Apophthegmata di Diogene Laerzio fatte da Erasmo. "The shortcomings of Robortello's Annotationes were notices by Petrus Nannius, who devoted chapter VIII of his Miscellanea (1548) to the defense of Erasmus Apophthegmata. The first part of this chapter consist of a detailed discussion and, if possible, refutation of Robortello's notes. Contrary to Robortello, the Leuven professor shows a clear understanding of Erasmus' intention and method, without being blind to the errors he came across. He does not deny that the Italian critic was sometimes right, but disapproves of the acerbitas of his tone. Nannius quotes Robortello's annotations almost in full before discussing them. Sometimes he proves that Erasmus' interpretation was right. In other cases he tries to explain why Erasmus rendered the apophthegm as he did, or at least to mitigate the criticism. The second part of the chapter VIII, were Nannius corrects Erasmus' interpretation of nineteen other apophthegms, departs from the same benevolent attitude" (T.L. Ter Meer, Introduction, in: "Opera Omnia Desiderii Erasmi Roterdami. Ordinis Quarti. Tomus Quartus: Apophthegmata", Leiden 2010, p. 21). Petrus Nannius (Pieter Nanninck) nacque ad Alkmaar, dove Alardus di Amsterdam, gli insegnò latino presso l'allora famosa scuola locale. Tra gli altri furono suoi insegnanti Bartolomeo di Colonia, Rutgerus Rescius e Johannes Murmellius. Nel novembre del 1518 iniziò gli studi presso l'Università di Lovanio, dove probabilmente incontrò Erasmo. Dopo la laurea, insegnò per un anno presso la scuola latina della sua città natale e nel 1521 fu nominato rettore della scuola latina di Gouda. Durante questo periodo fu pubblicata la sua commedia "Victus" (1522). Alla morte di Erasmo, nel 1536, Nannius contribuì alla raccolta di epitaffi a cura di Rutgerus Rescius (Lovanio, 1537). Alla morte dell'amico Conrad Goclenius, nel gennaio del 1539, Nannius gli succedette come insegnante di latino presso il Collegium Trilingue di Lovanio, ruolo che conservò fino alla propria morte. La grande fama raggiunta in questo periodo è legata ai suoi commentari sugli scritti di Orazio, Cicerone, Virgilio e Lucrezio. La sua corrispondenza mostra quanto fosse vasta la sua rete di amicizie, e quanto fossero frequenti i confronti con studiosi e politici, tra i quali occorre ricordare Nicolas Olah, che sarebbe divenuto prelato di Ungheria, Nicolas e Antoine Perrenot de Granvelle, Giacomo Fieschi, vescovo di Savona, Stephen Gardiner, vescovo di Wincester, l'umanista portoghese Damião de Goes e Achilles Statius, il diplomatico inglese Nicholas Wotton, Edmond Bonner, vescovo di London, l'umanista inglese Roger Asham, Henri Estienne e molti altri (cf. A. Polet, op. cit., pp. 3-28 and H. de Vocht, History of the Foundation and Rise of the Collegium Trilingue Lovaniense, 1517-1550, Louvain, 1955, IV, pp. 460-461).

Daer nae in dry deelen 't leven der (...) schilders des ouden en nieuwen tyds. Eyntlyck d'uitlegginghe op den metamorphoseon. Haarlem, Passchier van Wesbusch, 1604.

      Contempory vellum, tear in the spine, 4°: foliated [16] 300 [5] [8] 136 [2]. With engraved titlepage by J. Matham after Carel van Mander. Includes the often lacking explanation of Ovidius Naso's Metamorphoses but misses the portrait of Van Mander. Good copy of this masterpiece of art history. First edition of this famous biographical work on painters by the mennonite poet, writer and painter Carel van Mander (1548-1606). Born of a noble family at Meulebeke in Flanders, Van Mander studied under Lucas de Heere at Ghent and in 1568-69 under Pieter Vlerick at Courtrai and Tournai. Due to the religious troubles in Flanders, Van Mander fled to the Northern Netherlands. In 1583 he settled at Haarlem, where, with Hendrik Goltzius and Cornelis Cornelisz., he founded a successful academy of painting. Het Schilder-boeck contains about 175 biographies of Dutch, Flemish, and German painters of the 15th and 16th centuries and is a unique source of information on the northern European artists of those times. Most of this material is a condensed translation into Dutch of Vasari, it also has valuable information collected by Van Mander himself when he was in Italy in 1573-77 or from friends and correspondents. Van Mander's own pictures, which were mainly religious and allegorical, adopted the elongated forms of the Mannerist, but his later works showed a tendency towards naturalism. , 523, Hals was probably his pupil.

With a woodcut device on title and 38 woodcut diagrams and plans of fortifications (one large folding plan on D5). 2o: (.?.)2 A-D4 E1 F-H4 I2; pag.: [4], 61, [1 blank]. The polymath Simon Stevin (1548-1620) was a figure of great importance in the history of science, law and 4, 54, 228, of the northern Netherlands. Stevin was a bookkeeper in Antwerp, then a clerk in the tax office at Brugge. After this he moved to Leiden where he first attended the Latin school, then he entered the University of Leiden in 1583 (at the age of 35). He was at various times mathematics and science tutor to Maurice of Nassau, founder of a school of engineers at Leiden and a prolific writer, mostly in Dutch, on everything from interest tables to mechanics and hydrostatics. While quartermaster in the Dutch army, Stevin invented a way of flooding the lowlands in the path of an invading army by opening selected sluices in dikes. He was an outstanding engineer who built windmills, locks and ports. He advised the Prince Maurice of Nassau on building fortifications for the war against Spain. His two works on fortification contained ideas which were not put into practice until a hundred years later by Vauban and Coehoorn.B0126.

Carattere tondetto. Bella legatura in piena pergamena rigida di inizio settecento, tagli spruzzati di rosso e di verde. Esemplare marginoso e bellissimo, stupendamente impresso. Edizione originale di questo celebre trattato di medicina e farmacologia astrologica. Galeotto Marzio (Narni, 1427 - Boemia, 1490) proveniente dalla nobile famiglia dei Marzi, dopo gli studi a Ferrara fu chiamato a soli 23 anni ad insegnare letteratura all'università di Padova e, più tardi, a quella di Bologna. Fu in costante contatto con Janus Pannonius e János Vitéz, che lo invitarono a più riprese in Ungheria. Per le etorodosse sue dottrine fu accusato di eresia, ma morì tuttavia in pace con le istituzioni ecclesiastiche e "per soverchia grassezza", come attesta Francesco Serdonati che curò, molti anni appresso, la prima edizione italiana di questo suo trattato (Giunti, 1595).

         [Grant of arms to Ponce de Leon] Con Carlos por la divina clemencia

      Important Carta Executoria, in favour of Hernan Ponce de Leon and Pedro de Valbuena (from Ruiponce); the first ff. with a large miniature incorporating the coat of arms, and an historiated frame, showing a diversity of subjects. The condition is very good: preserving the original lead seal portraying Charles V, hold by the multi-colour silk string. The manuscript has its origin in a lawsuit established by the former and their procurator against Valladolid, demanding that, as they are Hidalgos, they should not be forced to contribute or pechar (a sort of tribute). The King grants this Executoria to Ponce de Leon, favouring him. Hernan Ponce de Leon participated in the earliest discoveries and processes of colonization in America, especially in the Caribbean, possibly accompanying Soto to the first expedition into the United States, visiting Florida, Georgia, and the Mississippi. By 1516, Hernan Ponce de Leon participated in the expedition lead by Pedrarias Davila to Panama (and other punitive expeditions, alongside Soto) and the conquest of Nicaragua, becoming important figures in that city. Towards 1536, he would join Hernando de Soto in the conquest of Peru "While still in Guatemala he had formed a partnership with Hernan Ponce de Leon and Francisco Campañon, each obligating himself to share equally in all his possessions with the other two" (The De Soto Chronicles Vol 1 & 2: The Expedition of Hernando de Soto, pp. 174). Campañon died, and Ponce de Leon and Soto stroke a new alliance, which would later engage Ponce de Leon in a long lawsuit against Isabel de Bobadilla (Soto´s widow). Ponce de Leon and Soto formed a tight partnership -and likely participated in the same campaigns-, as evidenced by the papers of the Harkness Collection at the Library of Congress: in one document, Ponce de Leon and Soto agree to a "renewal and ratification of a fraternal partnership which had existed between them for eighteen... years, in which they agree to share whatever they may have of obtain by profit, mining, in war...", a power of attorney, granting Soto "Full authority to recover gold, jewels.., negroes, Indians, to enter into contracts... in his place". The expedition to Peru was successful, Soto was regarded next in importance after the Pizarro´s; the Spanish force captured the last Inca: Atahualpa, and completed the conquest of Peru. The next step would be the exploration of the United States, it is presumable that, following the tight alliance made before, their good fortunes would be tied together again in the promising expedition. There is not an abundant array of information to be found on the personal life of Ponce de Leon, although it is clear that he was active by 1516, and still alive by 1548. The last name is well related to the history of early American discovery, his relative, Juan Ponce de Leon (ca. 1460 - 1521), who was Governor of Puerto Rico, and discovered Florida.

         DE LEONIS PAPAE HUIUS NOMINIS PRIMI, QUI MERITO SUMMO MAGNI COGNOME IAM OLIM OBTINET.POTUERUNT OMNES

      Melchioris Nouesiani, Cologne 1548 - Vellum backed marbled boards. 4" x 6". Unpaginated. Book in very good condition. Title in ink on spine. Boards somewhat shelfworn. Engraved chapter initials. Library stamp on front free endpaper and title page. Piece cut off top of front free endpaper. Stain on title page and through several following pages. 25 pages show a worm trail. Scattered period underlining. Otherwise, book is clean and tight and in very good condition. All text Latin. Rare edition of a Latin-language history text concerning Pope Leo I. Pope Saint Leo I (d. 461), also known as Saint Leo the Great, was pope from 29 September 440 to his death. He was a Roman aristocrat, and was the first pope to have been called "the Great". He is perhaps best known for having met Attila the Hun in 452 and persuading him to turn back from his invasion of Italy. He is also a Doctor of the Church, most remembered theologically for issuing the Tome of Leo, a document which was a major foundation to the debates of the Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon. The Council of Chalcedon, the fourth ecumenical council, dealt primarily with Christology, and elucidated the orthodox definition of Christ's being as the hypostatic union of two natures, divine and human, united in one person, "with neither confusion nor division".

         The Union of the two noble and illustrate famelies of Lancastre & Yorke

      London: Grafton, 1548. FIRST EDITION. Woodcut title page and full-page woodcut colophon, numerous woodcut historiated initials, including the large woodcut on the first text leaf. Contemporary calf, rebacked; title repaired at top, not affecting any printing. Signature of Thomas Spring dated 1663 on title and the word Dartmouth written in pen on the verso of title, contemporary annotation on first text leaf. Overall an excellent copy, very little browning, sharp impression. First edition, first issue of Hall's chronicles of English history, famed as one of Shakespeare's major sources. Spanning from the accession of Henry IV in 1399 and the War of the Roses to the death of Henry VIII in 1547, the text serves primarily as a moral exemplar and cautionary political tale. It was fundamental in cementing the memory of Richard III as a villainous ruler. Unlike other chroniclers, Hall weaves his own eye-witness accounts into the narrative, bringing a dramatic immediacy to these political mechanisms. Hall's text reiterates his respect for the monarchy and royal ceremony and is decidedly sympathetic to the Protestant cause. He is also one of the earliest historians to suggest that the Tudor house would restore England to its rightful glory after the political strife and economic upheavals of the fifteenth century. Of particular interest is the chronicle's role as inspiration and source material for William Shakespeare's plays on the Wars of the Roses-Richard II, Henry IV (parts one and two), Henry V, Henry VI (parts one, two and three) and Richard III. Hall (1497-1547), lawyer, historian, and member of Parliament, likely viewed the production of this chronicle as his life's mission. Although he died before his magnum opus could be completed, Hall left the manuscript to the King's printer, Richard Grafton (c. 1507-1573), who completed and published the text.
