        Aviso de Cazadores y Caça [bound after] De Exequendis Mandatis Regnum Hispaniae, quae rectoribus Ciuitatum dantur, & hodie continentur in titulo

      Second edition of this exceedingly scarce work on the chase and falconry, one of the earliest and most important of those written in Spanish in the 16th century; the work focuses on the laws of hawking and hunting, it was the first Castilian printed book on hunting and the first to deal with its legal and moral aspects. The treatise was first published in 1543 in Alcala, which is now scarce. "Avendano wrote the Aviso to show the Castilian aristocracy its responsibilities regarding hunting. He argued that hunting was made legal by natural law and ius gentium and could be controlled by the monarch only when hunting threatened the public interest" (John Marshall Carter, "Medieval Sport," in Journal of Sport History, vol. 9, no. 1, Spring 1982, p.71). Uhagon says of the present edition "Los ejemplares de esta segunda edicion son quiza mas raros que los de la primera". A rare book, of whish we find copies in the United States at University of Pennsylvania, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Library of Congress, UC Berkeley, and National Library of Medicine. The only comparable example to have appeared at auction was sold in 1992, lot 320, Sotheby´s, £5,500. Palau 197084 (first edition), 197089. Schwerdt II, p.46. Jeanson 1266. Uhagon 297.

        Les memoires de Messire Philippe de Commines chevalier seigneur d'Argento

      [Genève]: Pour Jacques Chouet, 1593. Fine. Pour Jacques Chouet, [Genève] 1593, in-12 (8x14,3cm), (38) 854pp. (1f. bc.), relié. - New edition of the revised version by Denys Savage with the Epistles of Sleidan, which seems to have appeared for the first time in 1579 in Bonefons in Paris. Velin full time flexible flap. As pen and time. Traces of laces. The first white layer was not connected. Very pale wetness of p.280 to 330P. Good copy in the old binding. Father of modern history, the book Commynes, which also sets a rule of political conduct of the Great Kingdom, is the largest source of this contemporary. From 1472 to 1483, after having been the advisor to the Duke of Burgundy (Charles the Bold), Commynes will the service of Louis XI, then Charles VIII and Louis XII. There shine through his diplomatic skills, especially in Italy; thereby memoirs are also a history of Europe. We often forget that his exemplary career enjoyed an interlude of disgrace opposing the young Charles VIII by his liberal ideas, he joined the cause of the future Louis XII (conspiracy to remove Charles VIII). He was accordingly arrested and locked up in an iron cage in Loches for five months in 1488. Until now, the work is still studied, Memoirs Commynes never failed to success and the interest. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition de la version revue et corrigée par Denys Savage avec les épitres de Sleidan, laquelle a paru pour la première fois en 1552, à Paris. Reliure en plein vélin souple d'époque à rabats. Titre à la plume et date. Traces de lacets. Le premier feuillet blanc n'a pas été relié. Mouillure très pâle de la p.280 à 330p. Bon exemplaire dans sa reliure ancienne. Oeuvre incontournable engendrant l'histoire moderne, l'ouvrage de Commynes, qui fixe en outre une règle de conduite politique aux Grands du royaume, constitue la plus grande source de cette période. De 1472 à 1483, après avoir été le conseiller du Duc de Bourgogne (Charles le Téméraire), Commynes passera au service de Louis XI, puis de charles VIII et de Louis XII. Il y brillera par ses talents de diplomate, notamment en Italie ; de ce fait, les Mémoires sont aussi une histoire de l'Europe. On oublie trop souvent que sa carrière exemplaire connut un intermède de disgrâce : s'opposant au jeune Charles VIII par ses idées libérales, il rallia la cause du futur Louis XII (complot visant à enlever Charles VIII). Il fut en conséquence arrêté et enfermé dans une cage de fer à Loches durant cinq mois, en 1488. Jusqu'à aujourd'hui, l'oeuvre étant encore étudiée, Les Mémoires de commynes n'ont jamais failli au succès et à l'intérêt.

        Testamenti Veteris sive, Libri Canonici Priscae Indeorum Ecclesiae a Deo traditi, Latini recens ex Hebraeo facti, brevibrisque Scholiis illustrati ab Immanuele Tremellio & Franciso Junio,

      Londini: N Guliel, 1593 A good copy of the 3rd edition of what was considered to be a ground-breaking protestant version of the Bible. Immanuel Tremellius, a convert from Judaism to Christianity and then to Calvinism, worked with his son-in-law Franciscus Junius, on the translation. The New Testament is laid out in 2 columns, the first with Tremellius' interpretation and the second with Theodore Beza's. Beza did not believe that Jerome was the translator of the Vulgate and instead used Erasmus' writings - so this version allows a comparison between the two. It was first published in 1579 and by 1764 had gone through 33 different printings. This copy is in a full leather binding probably dating from the late 1700's/early 1800's but retaining some leather from an earlier binding. It is complete but the boards are attached to the spine by the sewing and the leather has split. The spine, with title label and raised bands is scuffed, particularly at the top and the boards have a lot of scuffing and wear. The contents are complete and in very good condition. The endpapers are marbledc and there is a small ink inscription from 1814 on the second iniitial blank, and a further signature from 1832 on the 3rd initial blank. Contents: decorative title page 1593; dedication 1p; preface 4pp; lectori 1p; Text 'Primus Liber' pp 1-177 (stain in bottom corner p 129); blank; title page Pars Secunda; preface 4pp; text pp1-104 (with numbering only on facing pages); blank; title page Pars Tertia; preface 4pp; text pp 1-75 (numbering on facing pages only)(stain 1cm x 3 cm extending from gutter pp 15-17 affecting a small piece of text; p 24 has a historic page repair in silk thread); title page Pars Quarti; preface 2pp; text pp 5-130 (no text missing - page numbering on both sides of paper); blank; title page Libri Apocryphi Sive Appendix testamenti Veteris ad Canonem 1592; preface 4pp; text p 4-74 (pages numbered on face only); title page D N Jesu Christi Testamentum Novum Sive Foedus Novum, Franciscus Junius 1592; dedication 2pp; note re translation 1p; contents and note 1p; text in dual columns pp 1-187 (page numbers on face only)(repaired page tear bottom margin p177); Prolegomena 2pp; Apocalypsis pp 189-198; final blank.

Provenance: one or two early marginal notes, small early ink doodle on vol. I title; Franciscus Xaverius Scharz (engraved armorial bookplate); Joseph Hennston (1814 inscription); Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.*** first edition, first issue, with the text in German, a complete copy, in its original binding, of Books I and II of Dietterlin's exuberant, fantastical, at times sinister, and highly influential visual exposition of architecture and ornament. Wendel Dietterlin was well known to his contemporaries as a painter and muralist. His grandest commission, from Conrad Schlossberger, intendant to Duke Louis of Württemberg and the dedicatee of the present first volume, was for the decoration of the ducal pleasure villa (the Neues Lusthaus). Executed between 1590 and 1593, his vast murals of the Creation and Last Judgement, painted on the ceiling and walls of the great hall, were sadly demolished in the 18th century. Most of Dietterlin's other paintings met the same fate, and only one of his easel paintings is extant (in the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe). His main surviving oeuvre is therefore this collection of etchings of architecture and ornament, published over six years. While the first volume nominally surveys the five classical orders (Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, Tuscan and Composite), and the second volume is devoted to doorways and portals, Dietterlin ranges far beyond architecture and proportion to embrace the entire universe of ornament, successfully and inimitably combining Gothic and Renaissance elements in dizzying assemblages of scrollwork, strapwork, grotesque figures, and allegorical motifs whose meanings were obvious to his contemporaries. In both volumes Dietterlin states that his work is intended for young artists. In his preface to the reader, he explains rather breathlessly that he wishes to put at the disposal of young painters, stoneworkers, cabinetmakers, stone carvers and other artists and artisans, who lack access or understanding of Vitruvius and other architectural treatises, a comprehensive visual supply of models of each of the five orders with corresponding ornamentation. For Dietterlin's conception of the five orders embraced more than architecture: influenced by Serlio and by Hans Blum (whose column book was first published in Latin in 1550), Dietterlin "conceives the column orders as little more than thematic categories or divisions into which fall a range of original decorative forms" (Millard Collection III, p. 25), from the most rustic to the most elegant. Dietterlin's sophisticated decorative repertory, elements of which he borrowed from Androuet du Cerceau, may not have been of much use for students: while his extravagant horreur du vide was in keeping with contemporary northern European aesthetic taste, Dietterlin's application of the principles of architecture to design is delightfully and sometimes nightmarishly idiosyncratic. These 99 etchings printed from 94 plates depict columns, pediments, cartouches, doorways and gateways, adorned or morphing into an array of human, zoomorphic and grotesque figures. The three later volumes, published in Nuremberg in 1498 along with restrikes of the plates from volumes I and II, extended the fantastical element into perspective itself, prefiguring the "impossible realities" of M. C. Escher. While these first volumes exhibit a gentler mood, the "terror and dementia ... sometimes evoked by these images" (Millard Collection III, p. 28) surfaces in Volume II, notably in the final plate, an ominous memento mori showing a portal overrun with dead animals, prone putti, a carcass, vultures, devils, and other sinister figures, with a pile of skulls inside the doorway and a tiny tombstone visible in the distance. In spite of their iconographic flights of fancy, Dietterlin's books seem to have been heavily used by artists and even a few architects. The Architectura helped disseminate Renaissance decorative forms in Germany, and Dietterlin's exaggerated Mannerist style influenced other pattern book designers as well as artisans and craftsmen throughout Northern Europe, even as far afield as England (cf. Summerson, Architecture in Britain 1530 to 1830, pp. 54 & 73). No doubt precisely because of their popularity, unsophisticated sets of even the 1598 edition are scarce, while complete copies of this first edition are few and far between. (These volumes were reprinted with the text in Latin by Jobin in 1594-1595; that edition is also exceedingly rare.) OCLC erroneously lists two American instututions holding copies of the first German edition (Columbia and the Canadian Centre for Architecture): in fact both holdings are of the Latin edition of 1594/95, and Columbia has volume 1 only of this first edition. ABPC lists no copy of either the German or Latin editions in Anglo-American auctions for the past 35 or more years, nor do we locate any other complete copies in the trade in the past half-century (a copy offered by Weinreb in 1964, in later sheep, lacked a text leaf). this large, unrestored copy in its contemporary german binding is a great rarity. VD16 D-1691; Berlin Katalog 1941; Brunet II, 706; Schlosser Magnino, pp. 412, 421; Fowler 104 (second volume only). Cf. Neue Deutsche Biographie 3:702; Thieme Becker 9:269-71; H. F. Malgrave, introduction, Millard Collection III: Northern European Books, pp. 25-28); Architectural Theory from the Renaissance to the Present (2011) 2:520-29 ("this is the earliest etched work of any size to appear prior to Jacques Callot").

        Horae Recreationis, sive Facetiarum et Apophtegematum Centuriae II. In usum inclyta Academia Witebergenis Italice discit, collect à Catharino Dulci

      Witeberg [i.e., Wittenberg]: Ex Officina Cratoniana, 1593. Interleaved. A-C8 D1. INCOMPLETE, with 25 leaves only (of 40); lacking D2 through F8. 1 vols. 12mo. Vellum, new endpapers. Bookplate. One interleaf bears manuscript translations into French of two of the anecdotes, in what appears to be an 17th- or early 18th-century hand. Interleaved. A-C8 D1. INCOMPLETE, with 25 leaves only (of 40); lacking D2 through F8. 1 vols. 12mo. Italian as a Foreign Language, Wittenburg, 1593. Rare collection of sayings, anecdotes and jokes written and compiled from Lodovico Guicciardini (1521-1589) by Catharinus Dulcis, for young students of Italian. Dulcis was an itinerant scholar of languages, and evidently the first professor of French and Italian at the University of Marburg, who published this work during a sojourn in Wittenburg in the 1590s. OCLC only records two copies--at the University of Leipzig, and the University of Jena-- and a thorough search of online catalogues throughout Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, and France, and Switzerland, turns up only one other copy, at the University of Gotha, of this peculiar and very interesting book - presumably the first by Dulcis - printed in Wittenberg, whose university provided a home to Martin Luther and Philip Melanchton - and where Prince Hamlet himself studied before returning to Elsinore upon his father's death. The dedicatee of Dulcis' little book makes this Danish-Wittenburg connection all the more intriguing: Dulcis dedicates his book to the learned nobleman, Doctor Holger Rosenkrantz, of Denmark. Albeit incomplete, a rare and fascinating book. USTC 620617; not in Hunt

        GIARDINO DI AGRICOLTURA

      Venetia: Bartolomeo Carampello, 1593. Second Edition. First printed the preceding year, this popular Italian work on gardening tools and techniques promises to explain all one needs to know to have the perfect kitchen garden, including the proper way to plant and graft trees. The present edition was expanded to 78 chapters from the 64 that appeared in the 1592 version, and the text also includes a revision of Bussato's 1578 work on graftings. Ravenna agronomist Marco Bussato (fl. 1578-98) resided in one of the most fertile regions of Italy, where the production of orchard fruits and wine grapes were important industries. Successful grafting techniques are key to the production of these crops, and Bussato's work would have been a valuable reference, especially with its clear illustrations showing how to cut and tie grafts. Simon notes that the author also addresses the wine harvest and the care that must be taken during the production of wine. At the end of the book is a gardener's calendar, discussing tasks for each month. In the tradition of the book of hours, each month features a vignette showing the labor of the month. The "Giardino" was reprinted in 1599 and 1612. All editions are uncommon, and the 1593 printing appears less often than the other issues, with just one other copy sold at auction in the past 40 years (in 1999, a stained and foxed copy fetched a hammer price of $1,400).. 202 x 142 mm. (8 x 5 3/4"). 4 p.l., 1-42, 51-54 (i.e. 43-46), 47-71, [3] leaves (misnumbered but complete). Second Edition. Contemporary limp vellum, rebacked to style, flat spine with gilt titling, new endpapers. Woodcut printer's device on title page, 12 woodcut vignette headpieces showing the labor of the month, and 20 full-page woodcuts, mostly of grafting techniques, one of these repeated three times.Simon BB II, 117; Wellcome I, 1164; Mortimer, Italian 95; STC Italian, p. 132.

      Anversa 1593 - L’opera proviene dalla seconda edizione dello Speculum Orbis Terrarum, pubblicata postuma dal figlio Cornelis nel 1593. Gerard de Jode, editore e cartografo con fervente attività in Anversa, nel 1578 pubblica la prima edizione del suo celebre Speculum Orbis Terrarum.

Incisione in rame, intagliata dai fratelli Johoannes o Lucas van Deutecum, bella coloriura coeva, in buono stato di conservazione. This work comes from the second edition of Speculum Orbis Terrarum, published by his son Cornelis in 1591 after his death.

        Riposo durante la fuga in Egitto

      1593 - Acquaforte, 1593, datata e firmata in lastra, in basso a destra. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con piccoli margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Stato unico. Quando Procaccini incide questa lastra, nel 1593 secondo la data riportata in basso a destra, era da poco giunto a Milano, perciò l’artista ricorda la sua città di origine nella firma Bol. bolognese. L’opera è tra le sue realizzazioni più celebri. Questa incisione rappresenta la terza versione del soggetto realizzata dell’artista. La scena è basata sul brano del Vangelo secondo Matteo 2: 13-15 I in cui si narra che un angelo apparve in sogno a Giuseppe e gli disse «Alzati, prendi con te il bambino e sua madre e fuggi in Egitto, e resta là finché non ti avvertirò, perché Erode sta cercando il bambino per ucciderlo». Il paesaggio è spesso una caratteristica importante nelle rappresentazioni della Fuga in Egitto, ma in questa incisione a dominare sono le figure che riempiono la scena quasi completamente. Il bambino, con l’aureola, è nel grembo di Maria, e guarda in direzione di Giuseppe che è appena dietro di loro, piegato in avanti. I volti di Giuseppe e Maria sono illuminati da una iridescenza che sembra irradiarsi dal bambino al quale guardano con espressione reverenziale. Etching, 1593, dated and signed on plate at bottom right. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with small margins, very good condition. When Procaccini engraved this plate, in 1593 according to the date shown on the bottom right, he had just arrived in Milan, so the artist recalls his hometown in the signature: Bol bolognese. This etching represents the artist’s third version of the Rest. The motif is based on Matthew 2:13-15 I which Joseph, warned in a dream of Herod’s murderous search for the prophesied King of the Jews, talking "the child and his mother with him, left that night for Egypt". Landscape is often an important feature in images of the Rest, but in this etching the massive figures fill the scene almost entirely. The haloed child reclines in Mary’s lap, looking upward toward Joseph who looms over them, animating the scene as he leans forward with a citron in his hand. Forming sort of a protective cave for the baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph are each encased in a bulky carapace of draperies composed of a thick network of cross-hatching complemented by shorter strokes and a system of dots that modulate the chiaroscuro and suggest homespun textures. Their faces are lit by an iridescence that seems to radiate from the child on whom they gaze with awed expressions. The work is among his most famous creations.

Er "nimmt unter den streng lutherischen Theologen der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts eine der ersten Stellen ein . An gelehrter Gründlichkeit und Scharfsinn übertraf er seine gleichzeitigen Parteigenossen, an Verdienst ist er sogar der Dritte nach Luther genannt worden" (ADB). In seiner Schrift wandte sich Hunnius vehement gegen den Calvinismus und begründete damit die lutherische Frühorthodoxie und seine Lehre des „Gnadenuniversalismus". Eine zweite Ausgabe erschien 1600 bei Georg Müller in Wittenberg (VD16 H 6142). Von besonderem Interesse ist der große Textholzschnitt, der Christus als jugendlichen Salvator mit der Weltkugel zeigt, auf der man Adam und Eva am Baum der Erkenntnis mit Mond und Sonne sieht. Christi Hand ist zum Segensgestus erhoben, während sein Antlitz von der Strahlenaureole hinterleuchtet wird. Auf Wolkenbänken umgeben ihn 10 Putti, die die Arma Christi, die Marterwerkzeuge seines Martyriums präsentieren. Über seinem Haupte schwebt der Heilige Geist als Taube und ganz oben ist – der Trinität entsprechend – Gottvater als drei hebräische Buchstaben dargestellt.

        De la Démonomanie des sorciers

      Arnould Coninx, Anvers 1593 - Plein vélin à rabat de l'époque Un volume in-8 (165x107 mm), 467-(1) pages Cet ouvrage est considéré comme le meilleur que l'on ait sur la Sorcellerie". Édition complète de la "réfutation des opinions de Iean Wier" qui occupe les 65 dernières pages. Dans la préface, Bodin dit que c'est après avoir assisté au procès d'une sorcière qu'il s'est "advisé de faire ce traicté que j'ay intitulé, DEMONOMANIE DES SORCIERS, pour la rage qu'ils ont de courir après les Diables, pour servir d'advertissement à tous ceux qui le verront, à fin de faire cognoistre au doigt & à l'oeil, qu'il n'y a crimes qui soient à beaucoup près si execrables que que cestuy-cy, ou qui méritent peines plus griefues." Bodin est un véritable reflet des opinions de son temps : il croit aux pactes faits avec les démons, à l'évocation des morts et à la copulation charnelle avec les démons. Il a par ailleurs, pour son compte personnel, un esprit familier qui ne le quitte pas, qui le conseille dans toutes les circonstances de la vie. Alors qu'au point de vue religieux, Bodin était très tolérant - il faillit même perdre la vie durant la Saint Barthélemy- il l'est beaucoup moins lorsqu'il s'agit des sorciers puisque, dans sa réfutation des opinions de Jean Wier qui soutenait que les sorciers sont le plus souvent des malades ou des fous et qu'il ne fallait pas les brûler, lui, au contraire, exprime le désir de réunir des centaines de sorciers et sorcières pour pouvoir lui-même les griller en seul tas. (Dorbon) BEL EXEMPAIRE, TRÈS PUR, DE CET OUVRAGE RECHERCHÉ. Rare dans cet état Coumont [B87.9], Dorbon [5475] ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Contemporary full limp vellum. 8vo (165x107 mm), 467-(1) pages This work is considered as the best we have on Witchcraft. It is followed by the "Réfutation des opinions de Jean Wier". Bodin believes in pacts with demons, in the remembrance of the dead and carnal copulation with devils. He also has, for his personal account, a familiar spirit that does not leave him, to advise him in all circumstances of life. While at the religious point of view, Bodin was very tolerant, he is much harder with witches. Since in his refutation of the opinions of John Wier who claimed that sorcerers are more often sick or crazy and that they should not burn, Bodin expresses the desire to raise hundreds of wizards and witches for burning them itself.

        Emblematum liber. Ipsa emblemata ab auctore delineata: a Theodoro de Bry sculpta, & nunc recens in lucem edita.

      Francofurti ad Moenum, (Theodorus de Bry), 1593. ____ Son "Emblemata" publié à Metz en 1584 et 1588, est un recueil d'emblèmes tout à fait différent de celui-ci. Les dessins ne sont pas les mêmes et les gravures de Théodore de Bry sont dans cette édition de Francfort d'une qualité bien supérieure. Jean-Jacques Boissard (Besançon, 1528-1602) est une exception parmi les auteurs d'emblèmes, puisqu'il est à la fois l'auteur du texte et des illustrations. Relié à la suite : - PIGNORIA, Lorenzo. Characteres Aegyptii, hoc est sacrorum quibus aegypti utuntur, simulacrorum accurata delineatio. Francofurti, Matthiae Becker, 1608. In-4 de (4), 43, (4) ff., 14 planches. Illustré par plusieurs gravures dans le texte et 14 planches hors-texte, mais il manque probablement trois planches montrant des hiéroglyphes et 6 planches ont été ajoutées. Seconde édition, d'un des premiers ouvrages d'égyptologie. Coiffes usées, charnière supérieure fendillée, assez bon exemplaire. Sur le premier feuillet de garde, un longue note à la plume sur cet ouvrage, d'un bibliophile comtois qui déclare l'avoir acheté à la vente de Mr. Méon en 1803, (N°3989 du catalogue).***** First edition. Illustrated by 51 emblems engraved by Theodore de Bry, after the author's drawings. This edition has different emblems from those found in 1584 and 1588. Bound with : PIGNORIA.

        Nova totius Europae tabula ex magnis Gerardi de Iudaeis desumpta...

      1593. Incisione in rame, mm 338x450, colorata d'epoca, firmata in lastra in basso "formis hered? Gerardi de Jode". Rarissima carta pubblicata solo in questa edizione del raro "Speculum Orbis Terrae", curato dal figlio Cornelio con alcune varianti nel testo e nel numero delle tavole, seconda edizione dell'atlante. Nella prima edizione del 1578 Gerard aveva inserito una diversa carta, sostituita da Cornelio con questa più decorativa, che in basso entro riquadro presenta dieci coppie di abitanti di vari paesi europei nell'abito tradizionale. De Jode (1509-1591) fu cartografo, incisore, stampatore, editore attivo ad Anversa a metà del Cinquecento, nello stesso periodo di Ortelio; la vicissitudini della vita non gli permisero di avere il medesimo successo e no fu in grado di uguagliare l'importanza dell'attività economica del rivale. Questo fece però si che le sue carte siano diventate decisamente più rare. Esemplare perfetto in rara coloritura antica. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, II, Jod 2, pag 210.Copper engraving, mm 338x450, original color, signed "formis hered? Gerardi de Jode" in the plate. A large inset includes 20 costumed figures, representing the dress of various European inhabitants. The map has been published only in this second edition of the atlas.Gerard De Jode was a competitor of Ortelius, active in the same period; but his atlas 'Speculum Orbis Terrarum' did not enjoy the same commercial success as Ortelius and now-a-days his maps are much rarer than Ortelius' ones.After the death of Gerard in 1591, the business was carried on by his widow and his son Cornelis, who re-issued the Speculum in 1593, most plates were newly engraved, and therefore making those of the first edition extremely rare. A perfect example in its original antique color. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, II, Jod 2, pag 210.

Angelo Cattho, archeuesque de Vienne: Plus, deux epistres de Iean Sleidan en la recommandation de l'autheur. Le tout reueu & corrigé de nouueau. Item, vn indice des choses plus remarquables

      Pour Jacques Chouet. New edition of the revised version by Denys Savage with the Epistles of Sleidan, which seems to have appeared for the first time in 1579 in Bonefons in Paris. Velin full time flexible flap. As pen and time. Traces of laces. The first white layer was not connected. Very pale wetness of p.280 to 330P. Good copy in the old binding. Father of modern history, the book Commynes, which also sets a rule of political conduct of the Great Kingdom, is the largest source of this contemporary. From 1472 to 1483, after having been the advisor to the Duke of Burgundy (Charles the Bold), Commynes will the service of Louis XI, then Charles VIII and Louis XII. There shine through his diplomatic skills, especially in Italy; thereby memoirs are also a history of Europe. We often forget that his exemplary career enjoyed an interlude of disgrace opposing the young Charles VIII by his liberal ideas, he joined the cause of the future Louis XII (conspiracy to remove Charles VIII). He was accordingly arrested and locked up in an iron cage in Loches for five months in 1488. Until now, the work is still studied, Memoirs Commynes never failed to success and the interest. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
