Thucydides. (Niccolls Thomas)
Imprinted the XXV day of July in the Yeare of our Lorde God a Thousande fyve hundredde and fiftye, 1550. First Edition of the First Translation of Thucydides into English. Printed in Black Letter. Title within a woodcut border and with a profusion of illustrated or historiated initials. Folio, near contemporary calf, the spine decorated in gilt with period tools within compartments and with a brown morocco label lettered in gilt. Now housed in a very fine morocco backed fold-over box. CCxxiii + Errata. A fine unpressed and unwashed copy, some old and early marginalia, some very occasional and very small chips to edges of a few leaves, the binding with some expert and highly sympathetic restoration to the back but preserving the original spine panel. THE FIRST ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THUCYDIDES. 'Thucydides stands alone among the men of his own age and has no superior of any age, in the width of mental grasp which could seize the general significance of particular events. The political education of mankind began in Greece, and in the time of Thucydides their political life was still young. Thucydides knew only the small city-commonwealthe on the one hand, and on the other the vast barbaric kingdom; and yet, as has been well said of him, "there is hardly a problem in the science of government which the statesman will not find, if not solved, at any rate handled, in the pages of this universal master."' In an address to the great Greek scholar "Mayster John Cheke," Niccolls asks him "not onelye with fououre to accepte this the furste my fruict in translatyon, but also conferrin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition originale rare de la traduction française due à Jean Louveau. L'édition originale italienne est parue à Venise en 1550, sous le titre Problemi naturali e morali. Titre imprimé dans un encadrement gravé sur bois. Ouvrage « fort amusant, du genre de ceux de Cholière et Bouchet, mais moins répandu et plus rare » où l'auteur examine avec une religieuse attention : pourquoi le chien masle hausse la jambe pour pisser et non la femelle ? - La cause pourquoi les femmes ont plus de caquet que les hommes ? - Puisqu'il est beaucoup pire de faire les choses deshonnestes que de les dire, d'où vient que les hommes ont plus de honte à les dire qu'à les faire, etc.... (Techener, Répertoire universel de bibliographie). Au même titre que les Facecies de Domenichi, ou bien encore les Heures de recreation de Louys Guicciardin, il fait partie des ouvrages facétieux traduits de l'italien qui furent très appréciés et fort à la mode dans la deuxième moitié du XVIème siècle.

Ariosto, Lodovico.
Lyon, Macé Bonhomme for Guillaume Rouillé, 1550. 4to. 436 p + [4]p index. Roman & italic letter. Text in 8-line heroic cantos printed in 2 columns. Title with printer’s device surrounded by grotesque architectural woodcut border, large oval woodcut portrait of author on recto of 2nd leaf, 46 woodcut illustrations in the text (50 x 90mm) with ornamental horizontal borders, 2 historiated woodcut initials. Renaissance style morocco binding gilt; top edge git (Pacchiotti,Torino). The influential first Spanish translation of the celebrated epic romance in octavos considered one of the greatest literary achievements of the Italian Renaissance. The final version of Ariosto’s parody of the chivalric legends of Charlemagne and the Arab invasions of France was published in Ferrara in 1532 to be translated into Spanish as early as 1549 by Jerónimo Jiménes de Urrea (c1510 — c1573), Aragonese writer and a distinguished soldier from Epila, Zaragoza. Urrea’s translation is an acknowledged major source for Cervantes’s Don Quixote which contains numerous references to Orlando Furioso. The 45 cantos are dedicated to King Philip II of Spain. It was first published at Antwerp in 1549 and is here offered in its second printing. The charming woodcuts showing heroic feats are impressions from blocks cut for the attractive Giolito editions (‘the first Ariosto illustrations of any artistic merit’ – see Mortimer, Italian 16th Century Books, I, 36). Top margins shaven, 2 quires toned, last leaves with light waterstain, margins of 2 leaves strengthened, otherwise a good copy with an early old ownershi … [Click Below for Full Description]
