        I dilettevoli Sermoni, altrimenti Satire, e le Morali Epistole di Horatio, Illustre Poeta Lirico, insieme con la Poetica. Ridotte da M. Lodovico Dolce dal Poema Latino in versi Sciolti Volgari. Con la Vita di Horatio. Origine della Satira. Discorso sopra le Satire. Discorso sopra le Epistole. Discorso spra la Poetica.

      Venezia, Appresso Gabriel Giolito De Ferrari, 1559. In 12esimo, front. con impresa giolitina e marca tipografica "Semper Laudem", pp. 318, fregi capolettera istoriati e finalini, testo corsivo volgare su unica colonna, legatura settecentesca in piena perg. rigida, titolo in oro su tassello rosso, tagli in pointillé rosa. Un errore di numerazione tra la pagina 157 e la 158, la 157 si ripete due volte. Rara edizione, col volgarizzamento oraziano del Dolce, di una importante traduzione in italiano delle opere più popolari di Orazio, composta da due libri, il primo con i Sermoni; il secondo con le Satire, le Epistole e la Poetica. Prima traduzione in italiano dei Sermoni (le Satire) e delle Epistole, mentre la Poetica era già stata pubblicata dal Dolce nel 1535 e 1536 (cfr. Bongi II, 69). Satire e Epistole di Orazio, che sono fra le opere più personali di Orazio e forse le più accessibili ai lettori contemporanei. Soprattutto le satire, composte in esametri, sono di grande attualità: percorrono, dal proemio al commiato, riflessioni sull'incontentabilità umana e sull'avarizia, ed esplorano i segreti della felicità umana e della perfezione letteraria. Orazio combina filosofia greca e romana, con l'intento di convincere sulla futilità delle ambizioni e dei desideri. Umani; e in alternativa offre una vita basata sugli ideali filosofici greci di autarkeia (autarchia, autosufficienza) e metriotes (moderazione). Nella celebre "Ars Poetica", Orazio propone una nuova teoria della poesia: deve essere accuratamente e sapientemente elaborata a livello semantico e formale, ed essa dovrebbe essere sana quanto piacevole. Quinto Orazio Flacco fu il principale poeta lirico romano. Lodovico Dolce (Venezia, 1508 - 1568), umanista veneziano, compì numerose e importanti imprese letterarie e editoriali, lavorando per le presse di Venezia (il più delle volte per Gabriel Giolito) ed essendo personalmente responsabile di oltre il venticinque per cento dei libri pubblicati a Venezia nell'arco del Cinquecento. (Cfr.: Brunet, III; Bongi, II, pp. 68 ? 69: ?Libro di qualche rarità?; Col., p.331: ?Très difficile a trouver?). Antica firma di appartenenza privata al frontespizio. Esemplare in eccellente stato di conservazione, in nitidaimpressione, dall'interno fresco e in ampi i margini.

Contemporary calf, worn, endleaves lacking, covers almost detached but hanging (for dear life) by cords, spine defective. Title-page soiled and chipped at outer edge, old ownership inscriptions in ink and library stamp on title as well as final page; closely cropped copy, with a few running headings shaved. Still, an acceptable copy for its rarity. The First Plantin Latin Bible A new edition of the Louvain edition (originally published 1547) of the Vulgate Latin Bible (see Darlow & Moule, note at no. 6141), printed by Plantin. Another issue of this edition (from the same typesetting) has imprint: "Antuerpi : Apud Iohannem Steelsium, 1559." It is the first Latin Bible printed by Plantin, and both issues are extremely scarce. OCLC locates only two copies in the United States of this, the scarcer and more desirable issue with the Plantin imprint; and no copies have appeared at auction for (at least) 35 years.

Rare edition of the famous account of the circumnavigation by Olivier van Noort (1559-1627) in the years 1598 to 1601. Van Noort was the fourth to circumnavigate the globe and the first Dutchman to do so. His predecessors were Magellan, Drake and Cavendish. He left Holland in 1598 with four ships and orders to attack the Spanish and Portuguese and harass them in any way possible. After many adventures Van Noort returned in 1601 with only one ship and only a few dozen of his crew. Those few had survived numerous skirmishes with the Portuguese and Spanish, and attacks by natives at Puerto Deseada and Tierra del Fuego, the former described here as "zeer groot van gestalte" (very large in stature) leading to tales of giants. They suffered from scurvy and survived on penguin meat and ostrich eggs. Van Noort's story was extremely popular and as the first Dutchman to sail round the world he was revered out of national pride, even though his voyage accomplished little.With a 19th-century owner's name on an endleaf and an occasional word underlined. In very good condition. Cloth of backstrip gone and cloth frayed at the corners. Rare edition of an account of one of the earliest voyages around the world.

        Document Signed

      When France's King Henry II died in 1559 and his sickly 15-year-old heir Francis II followed the next year, the throne went to 10-year-old Charles Maximilian, who became Charles IX; his mother, Catherine de' Medici, dominated his reign, which is noted for the Wars of Religion and for the infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre of 1572. Partial vellum DS, 1p, 11" X 8", n.p., n.y. [September 1570 lightly pencilled in another hand]. Very good. Folds and mild bit of wear evident, but overall handsome and boldly penned. Though penned in difficult early French (which is to modern French what Elizabethan English is to modern English) and not accompanied by a translation, this is a probate approval legal document. Below six lines of finely penned legalese, Charles signs at left with his usual enormous signature in a different and somewhat lighter ink. Below this appears another sentence in a large flamboyant hand (which appears to refer to Provence) and huge ornate signature of an official. This atmospheric piece has been archivally free-floated against a cream matte with a surrounding raised cream matte, framed in a contemporary 1" walnut frame (overall dimensions 18½" X 16"). A beautiful display item.

        SYLVARUM LIBRI V. THEBAIDOS LIB. XII. ACHILLEIDOS LIB. II

      Lugduni: Apud Haered. Seb. Gryphij, 1559. n. Hardcover. 127 x 79 mm (5 x 3 1/8"). 524 pp., [2] blank leaves. Once fine and still attractive contemporary calf, covers with elaborate entrelac design in gilt with painted elements, flat spine gilt in three compartments, the upper and lower adorned with azured floral swirls and the center panel with rows of small stemmed flowers, all edges gilt and gauffered with similar floral designs (joints expertly renewed). Wood engraved printer's device on title page and woodcut initials. Pages ruled in red. Front free endpaper with contemporary ink ownership inscription of Jesuit priest Marcus Antonius Romolus; verso of same with modern "HB" bookplate of Heribert Boeder (see item # xxxx, above). Adams S-1676; Schweiger II, 964. Perhaps half the paint rubbed off the cover, corners a bit rubbed, a handful of small abrasions to covers, one leaf with long tear into text (no loss), overall light browning of leaves, other very minor imperfections, but generally a satisfactory copy, the binding retaining much of the original pleasure of its ornate design (despite its losses), and the text fresh and clean. This fetching early entrelac binding by an unknown, probably French, hand dresses this selection of the work of the ancient Neapolitan poet Statius (ca. 45 - ca. 96 A.D.), who flourished during the Silver Age of Latin literature. As with other works published by Sebastian Gryphius of Lyons and, as here, by his heirs, this volume was issued for scholastic use yet the text is graced by an attractive italicized font and rublicated borders that belie its basic purpose. In concert with its somewhat lavish binding we can only presume that the original owner of this volume was not a starving student but, rather, a gentleman of taste and means. Statius is generally given a high place among heroic poets of the Silver Age, Dante and Scaliger placing him immediately after Virgil. The "Silvarum," a collection of 32 fresh and expressive occasional poems (written on everything from flattery of the emperor to the description of a garden), is generally considered to be his best work; the "Thebaidos," which occupied Statius for 12 years, is an heroic poem embodying the ancient legends with regard to the expedition of the Seven against Thebes; the "Achilleidos" is the fragment of an heroic poem that was to have comprised a complete history of the exploits of Achilles. Selections from these works are found within this exceptional volume. See item #[?. SJG going kwazy trying to find all editions of Statius in our DB] for more on Statius.

        EPIGRAMMATON LIBRI XIII

      Lugduni: Apud Haered. Seb. Gryphius, 1559. n. Hardcover. 108 x 76 mm (4 1/4 x 3"). 398 pp. Appealing contemporary olive-brown morocco, covers bordered with fillets in gilt and in blind and with small gilt floral cornerpieces as well as central azured gilt arabesque, raised bands forming eight spine panels, each of these with small gilt cruciform sprigs flanking a central majuscule, the letters running vertically to spell out "MARTIAL," all edges gilt. Woodcut printer's device to title page, woodcut initials. Front pastedown with library label of Chatsworth House, and with modern bookplate of "HB" (i.e., collector Heribert Boeder). Schweiger II, 595. Quarter-inch chip at top of backstrip, half a dozen tiny wormholes near head or tail of spine, minor rubbing to corners and a few abrasions on covers, but A VERY APPEALING COPY, the unsophisticated contemporaneous binding completely solid, with lustrous boards, and virtually no wear to joints, and THE TEXT ESPECIALLY FRESH AND CLEAN THROUGOUT. Well printed and tastefully bound, this is a pocket edition of a classic originally meant for students, the volume having later resided in the grand library of the dukes of Devonshire at Chatsworth House. Of Martial's corpus of epigrams, Smith says that "it is impossible not to be amazed by the singular fertility of imagination, the prodigious flow of wit, and the delicate felicity of language everywhere developed in this extraordinary collection, and from no source do we derive more copious information on the national customs and social habits of the Romans during the first century of the empire." (This despite the fact that more than a few of the epigrams are full of self-serving flattery and of grossness.) Gryphius first published Martial in 1534, and it became one of the staples of his press, frequently reissued. Like other Gryphius imprints, this item was intended for scholastic use, and consequently is uncommonly seen in an attractive binding and in such fresh condition. The spine of the binding identifies the author in a manner well suited for such a small volume but not often seen on bindings of this period: by spelling the name out vertically on the spine, with each letter acting as the centerpiece of a panel. Heribert Boeder (1928-2013) was a professor of philosophy who had studied with Heidegger in his youth and who acquired a taste for book collecting while at Oxford.

His monumental chronicle was first printed at Strassburg in 1555, one year before his death. Despite his Protestant convictions, Sleidan strove to achieve the utmost impartiality in his history. "It was [in fact] so impartial that it pleased no one, not even Melanchthon." (Encyc. Brit., 11th Edn.)These editions not in Adams. Thompson I, pp. 528-29.. Hardcover.

El autor fue caballero de la milicia dorada a las órdenes del emperador y cambió la espada por la pluma al ser consejero de Felipe II (quien da el privilegio para impresión de este libro) y bibliotecario.

        LIBER DE MORIBUS VETERUM GALLORUM.

      Apud Andream Wechelum. París, 1559 - . 17 cm. [8], 74 h., 2 h. (sign A-I8, K4). Enc. en plena piel s. XIX. Pequeña restauración en la parte inferior derecha de la portada que no afecta. Marcas y pequeña fotografía sobrepuesta de anterior poseedor. Subrayados antiguos en algunas páginas. * Primera edición, rara, de una obra que rápidamente adquirió un gran éxito. Pierre de la Ramée (1515-1572) fue un humanista y retórico francés, creador de una corriente de pensamiento antiaristotélica denominada Ramismo. En un mundo en el que la palabra escrita tenía la supremacía, el ramismo surge como alternativa formal a la lógica y la retórica clásicas. Contrario al escolasticismo que reinaba en las universidades de la época, a pesar de su ideología ocupó la cátedra de matemáticas del Collège de France a mediados del siglo XVI, y lo consiguió gracias a la figura del cardenal de Lorena, a quien dedica la presente obra. Sus controvertidas teorías acabaron por costarle la vida durante la matanza de San Bartolomé, en la que se persiguió y asesinó a miles de protestantes. Voltaire dedica precisamente un fragmento de su Diccionario filosófico a este episodio y se lamenta de la actitud de las masas y de la triste suerte de Ramée. En el Liber de moribus el autor ofrece una visión filosófico-política y a la vez antropológica que reinterpreta las fuentes históricas clásicas bajo la óptica francesa y tiende a ver en los antiguos galos la raíz de la etnia propia. Inspirándose en César, Ramée realiza un halagüeño retrato de los galos, de quienes recalca especialmente su amor por la libertad, frugalidad y ardor en el trabajo y expresa abiertamiente cuál era su objetivo: "Amo patriam ut debeo ejusque praeclaras laudes illustrari celebrarique maxime cupio." Brunet 23204 (IV, 1099) califica la obra de "curiosa y bien escrita". historia de francia, galia, ramismo, siglo XVI Història d'Europa Libros antiguos anteriores a 1830 latín [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A Brief Narrative of the Life and Facts of the Sovereign Uzun Hasan. 2- Giosafat Barbaro, a Venetian Nobleman, Travels to Tana and Persia. 3- Travels of the Magnificent Ambrosio Contarini] Folio. Venice: Giunti, 1559. 62 pages (numbered 65-126). Text is in Italian. Three accounts, each one in itself complete. Together in a recent binding, brown cloth over marbled boards, titled in gilt to spine. These are the original pages, published in 1559, from Ramusio's monumental multi-volume compilation of circumnavigations, voyages and travels, 'Delle Navigationi et Viaggi'. Ink blemish to one leaf, otherwise, printed 450 years ago, these pages are in very good condition, clean and bright, nicely preserved. Italian travel accounts represent a mjor source for the history of Iran, especially that of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The first attempt to assemble this kind of material was made by Venetian humanist, historian, and geographer Giovan Battista Ramusio. This is three separate accounts all dealing with Persia, from volume II of Ramusio's Collection of Voyages. The first narrative is essentially a first person chronicle of the political and military events in Persia from 1467 to 1524, and particularly a report of the Turkish-Persian wars. It describes Uzun Hasan, ruler of the Turkmen Ak Koyunlu dynasty from 1453 to 1478, who created a short-lived empire in Iran, Iraq, and Armenia. Further topics include the campaign of Caramania against the Ottomans in which Aq Qoyunlu forces were defeated, the Turkish counter offensive in 1474 in which the author took part and describes in detail the two opposing armies, a Persian campaign in Georgia from 1477-80, and Uzun Hasan's death in 1478. The second section, in twenty-three succinct chapters, concerns the beginnings of the Safavid rise to power: Yaqub Padsah Sultan's succession to Uzun Hasan; the struggle of Shaikh Haydar and his "Sofians" against Rostam; Shaikh Haydar's death; the birth, education, character, and rise of Esmail; his conquest of Iraq at the turn of the sixteenth century, subsequent campaigns against Ottomans and Uzbeks until 1515, his campaign in Sirvan and the conquest of Samaki, the Ottoman campaign of Egypt and the conquest of Cairo in 1516-17. Giovanni Maria Angiolello (1451- ca.1525), was a Venetian adventurer, merchant, and author of this important historical report on the Aq Qoyunlu and early Safavid Persia. Of noble family, he took part as a youth in the defense of Negroponte, besieged by the Ottoman emperor Mehmed II. In the summer of 1470 he was captured and enslaved by the Turks, then transferred to Constantinople. In 1472 he was assigned to Mosafa Celebi, the Sultan’s second son and commander of the Ottoman troops in the war against the Aq Qoyunlu Uzun Hasan, who at that time was allied with the Venetian Republic. After the death of Mosafa Celebi (1474), Angiolello became a daftardar (treasurer) of Mehmed II and was among the officers of his suite in the palace of Constantinople and on various military campaigns. He also entered the service of the following sultan, Bayazid II. The second account is a valuable resource, as much of the information about the Kipchak Khanate, Persia, and Georgia is not found in any other sources. This is an account of 16 years of travels from 1436 to 1452 by a merchant named Giosafat Barbaro, who travelled to the Genoese colony Tana on the Sea of Azov. During this time the Golden Horde was disintegrating due to political rivalries. Giosaphat Barbaro (1413-1494) was a member of the Venetian Barbaro family. He was a diplomat, merchant and explorer. He was unusually well-traveled for someone of his times. In 1472, Giosafat Barbaro was selected as an ambassador to Persia, due to his experienc

        Document Signed

      When France's King Henry II died in 1559 and his sickly 15-year-old heir Francis II followed the next year, the throne went to 10-year-old Charles Maximilian, who became Charles IX; his mother, Catherine de' Medici, dominated his reign, which is noted for the Wars of Religion and for the infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre of 1572. Partial vellum DS, 1p, 11" X 8", n.p., n.y. [September 1570 lightly pencilled in another hand]. Very good. Folds and mild bit of wear evident, but overall handsome and boldly penned. Though penned in difficult early French (which is to modern French what Elizabethan English is to modern English) and not accompanied by a translation, this is a probate approval legal document. Below six lines of finely penned legalese, Charles signs at left with his usual enormous signature in a different and somewhat lighter ink. Below this appears another sentence in a large flamboyant hand (which appears to refer to Provence) and huge ornate signature of an official. This atmospheric piece has been archivally free-floated against a cream matte with a surrounding raised cream matte, framed in a contemporary 1" walnut frame (overall dimensions 18½" X 16"). A beautiful display item.

For more than 300 years following, the book was considered an essential component of any physician's library. Bernardus is reputed to have been either French or from Scotland. He was the first to describe seizures of petit mal. Moreover, the text is supposed to contain the first reference to eye-glasses! According to one catalog entry, he relied greatly on Arabic sources, adding his own observations to those of earlier writers.

        Physico-mathesis de lumine, coloribus, et iride, aliisque adnexis libri duo, in quorum primo asseruntur nova experimenta, & rationes ab iis deductae pro substantialitate luminis...Bologna: heirs of Vittorio Benacci for Girolamo Bernia, 1665. First edition.

      A fine copy of Grimaldi's only publication. This very important book contains the first account of the diffraction of light discovered by the author and it marks the first scientific attempt to establish a comprehensive wave theory of light. <br/><br/> &#10087;Macclesfield 943 (lacking the 2nd title); Arnoud de Vitry 429; Honeyman 1559. The diffraction experiments which Grimaldi describes here show "that a new mode of transmission of light had been discovered and that this mode contradicts the notion of an exclusively rectilinear passage of light. Diffraction thus gave prima facie evidence for a fluid nature of light. The name 'diffraction' comes from the loss of uniformity observed in the flow of a stream of water as it 'splits apart' around a slender obstacle placed in its path." (DSB). <br/><br/> Grimaldi repeatedly states that colors are not something different from light but are modifications of light produced by the fine structure of the bodies which reflect it, and probably consisting of an alteration in the type of motion and in the velocity of the light. The different colors are produced when the eye is stimulated by light oscillations whose velocities differ. All these views were of fundamental importance for the subsequent development of optics. <br/><br/> Newton was aware of Grimaldi's work, though only secondhand. The Englishman's great contribution to the knowledge of diffraction is his set of careful measurements which made clear the periodic nature of the phenomenon. <i>Provenance: old inscription to letter press title, previous stamp scrapped away and another three letter stamp in the same area.</i><br/><br/> Parkinson, Breakthroughs p. 103.. 4to (252 x 184 mm), fully complete with the often lacking additional letter press title page: pp. [22], 1-535 [536:blank], [14:index], [2: Riccioli's address about the author].

      Lugduni Batav. Ex Officina Elzeviriana, Porta & Vincentius 1559 - [34], 1151p. An important collection of the Decretals organized under the aegis of Pope Gregory IX. The Decretals are the collection of papal letters that formulate the full force of canon law in the medieval Church. Before Lorenzo Valla's expose of the Donation of Constantine, the power of the papal authority dominated kings, emperors and every aspect of the late medieval world. This universal authority existed in a time when the term "Christendom" embraced not only the church world but the various secular authorities. It was only with the rise of the nation-states that monarchial law began to take on the authority that eventually diminished canonical law though a large part of it still is retained within the Roman Catholic church. This volume is bound in contemporary vellum with scholarly notes on front endpapers (not deciphered by us), as well as across the vellum cover. Scholarly margin notes and two full pages of scholarly notes in Latin pasted in at p. 430p., 602 and p. 804. The latter appears to be a correction to a major correction possibly in an early 17th century hand. Previous owner's name in an elaborate calligraphy. Some minor repairs to margins. A small hint of mold damage to outer margin on p. 1084-1151, some damp stains to first few leaves. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

Very Good/In the context of Renaissance society, publishing a well-crafted letter was one more way for courtiers and notables to broadcast their refinement, like wearing the clothes we see in Renaissance portraiture. Apparently private letters were indeed public matter, enthusiastically shared and discussed. Some letters became famous. Renaissance publishers could not resist the urge to anthologize such fare. Paolo Manuzio and several other established publishers issued collections of letters, and so did Gabriel Giolito de&#39; Ferrari.

Dolce set out to collect "the most beautiful letters and the ones of greatest value." The collection first appeared in 1554, and it became a model for a certain type of familiar-sounding Italian prose, as well as a treasury of stories involving some of 16th-century Italy&#39;s greatest minds. The book was produced in small quantity and quickly sold out. A second edition was necessary, and Dolce prepared it with a completely new dedication, and with notable changes in content from the 1554 edition, including the addition of several letters by Giulia da Ponte. Of the two editions, Bongi writes "both are very uncommon, and highly sought by collectors. Since there are notable differences between the two, with each containing letters that are missing in the other, both would be worthy of acquisition by a true devotee (Bongi I, 442). .

      Köln, Erben J. Quentels u. G. Calenius 1559.. Folio. 6 Bl., 1129, (1) S. mit Titel in Rot u. Schwarz, Titelvignette u. großer illustr. Initiale auf dem ersten Blatt. Schweinsledereinband d. Zt. auf 4 Bünden über Holzdeckeln mit reicher teils figürlicher Blindprägung.. VD16 N 231. - Zweite deutsche Ausgabe der Predigtsammlung des Bischofs von Wien, welche zuerst 1535 in Mainz erschien. - Fr. Nausea (um 1496-1552) studierte in Leipzig, Padua und Siena Rechtswissenschaften und Theologie. War 1524 Teilnehmer des Nürnberger Reichstags und des Regensburger Konvents. In Bretten versuchte er, Philipp Melanchthon zur Rückkehr in die katholische Kirche zu bewegen. 1525 Diakon und seit 1535 Domprediger in Mainz, war Nausea seit 1534 auch Hofprediger Ferdinands I. und ab 1538 Koadjutor von Johann Fabri, zu dessen Nachfolger als Bischof von Wien er 1541 geweiht wurde. - "Da sich seine Predigten vielfach auf die schwebenden Zeitfragen bezogen und da die meisten derselben auch im Druck erschienen, lenkte er die Aufmerksamkeit immer weiterer Kreise auf sich, zuletzt - durch seine Homiliensammlung - jene des römischen Königs Ferdinand, der ihn zu seinem Rath und Hofprediger ersah und ihm in der Folge zur Entlohnung seiner Dienste die Pfarren Asparn (an der Zaya) und Mistelbach verlieh. Bevor N. dieses neue Amt antrat, begab er sich (1533) nach Rom, wo ihn der Papst von dem nach canonischem Rechte für eine solche Stelle nöthigen Doctorgrade der Theologie dispensirte, den er sich gleichwol (1534) zu Siena erwarb. Da er indeß gewöhnlich nur in der Advent- und Fastenzeit am königlichen Hofe zu Wien, Innsbruck oder Prag als Prediger zu fungiren hatte, hielt er sich auch jetzt während der übrigen Monate des Jahres in Mainz auf, wo er damals sein großes Homilienwerk in's Deutsche übersetzte" (H. Ritter v. Zeißberg iin ADB XXIII, S. 321 ff.). - Der interessante zeitgenössische Einband mit zwei halbfigürlichen Mittelporträts umgeben von kleinen Porträtmedallions berühmter Reformatoren wie M. Luther, Melanchthon und Erasmus v. Rotterdam sowie zeittypischer Rankenornamentik. - Lederbezug an den Stehkanten und Bünden stellenweise aufgeplatzt, Schließen fehlen, zeitgenöss. Besitzvermerke a. V. u. T., Titelblatt im oberen Rand mit größerem Einriß (ca. 5 cm), stellenweise zeitgenöss. Anstreichungen, durchgehend etwas gebräunt, stellenweise auch in den Blatträndern wasser- u. braunfleckig, insgesamt gutes vollständiges Exemplar in einem dekorativen zeitgenöss. Einband.

        Figures du Nouveau Testament.

      Lyon, Jean de Tournes 1559 - In-8 [155 x 103 mm]. Collation : (52) ff., [A-F8, G4] Maroquin brun, dos à nerfs, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées. (Reliure du XIXe, Thibaron-Joly.) Titre dans un bel encadrement d&#146;arabesques gravé et 96 gravures sur bois de Bernard Salomon, «un pur chef-d&#146;&#156;uvre de l&#146;école lyonnaise». Un bois est répété (aux ff. A5r et E6r). Chaque bois est accompagné d&#146;un sixain de Charles Fontaine (ou Fonteine). A la fin, dans un «Avertissement au lecteur», Fontaine s&#146;excuse d&#146;avoir utilisé des «rimes non assez riches», mais qu&#146;il a voulu éviter ainsi de rendre ses «petits vers rudes & obscurs». Cet avertissement est signé : «Hante le françois», anagramme de son nom. D&#146;après Cartier, il s&#146;agit de la réimpression page pour page de l&#146;édition de 1556. Pour ce bibliographe, la seule différence est la présence d&#146;un bois répété (aux feuillets F7r et G2v), mais dans notre exemplaire ces bois sont différents comme dans le premier tirage.

      [Genève], Henri Estienne 1559 - In-folio [337 x 222 mm]. Collation : (16), 847 pp. Veau, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées. (Reliure du XVIIe.) Edition princeps des livres 1 à 5 et 11 à 15 ainsi que des extraits des livres 31 à 33, 36 à 38 et 40. Préface en latin à Ulrich Fugger, qui était alors le mécène d'Henri Estienne. Texte de Diodore de Sicile en grec. L'ouvrage de Diodore contient une foule de faits historiques qui ne se trouvent dans aucun autre écrivain de l'Antiquité, et dont le souvenir eût été sans lui, tout à fait perdu. Une première édition, en 1539, ne réunissait que les livres 16 à 20, que l'on croyait être les seuls conservés. "A beautifully printed and impressive volume, in the tradition of the magnificient Greek folios printed by Robert Estienne in Paris." Schreiber, The Estiennes 147. Le dos a été refait au XIXe.
