        Europe

      Antwerp: Ortelius, 1595. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, Latin text on verso of one half of the sheet, in excellent condition, apart from a small expert repair to the left blank margin, and a small section of the upper blank margin torn away. A superb map of Europe by one of the greatest names in the history of cartography This important map of Europe derives in large part from Mercator's work; Russia from Jenkinson's map; Scandinavia from Olaus Magnus. The relatively modest cartouche shows a partially covered and apparently distraught Europa sitting on the back of Zeus in the form of a placid bull (he, the unwelcome lover of Europa), both gazing toward Europe, curious about its future. Published in a Latin edition of Ortelius' s ground-breaking atlas Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. van den Broecke, Ortelius Atlas Maps, 5.

        De regio Persarum principatu libri tres. Editio altera [ed. Sylburg].

      [Heidelberg], Hieronymus Commelinus, 1595. - 8vo. (12), 378 pp., final blank f. (Bound with): Sylburg, Friedrich. Saracenica, sive Moamethica. Ibid., 1595. (8), 152 pp. Both works have printer's woodcut device to title page. Contemp. blindstamped vellum. I: An uncommon edition. The book was first published by Prevosteau in Paris in 1590 from the author's notes ("ex adversariis"). Essentially the sources drawn on are purely those of ancient writers, both Greek and Latin, from whom there is extensive quotation. Book I is concerned with the Persian rulers and their history, book II with religious and social life, and book III with military organisation and prowess, both ancient and modern. Brisson (1531-91) was a distinguished jurist and author of important works, notably the legal code of Henri III, but no traveller. He was hanged by the "Ligueurs" on 15 Nov. 1591. The "Typographus lectori" makes it very clear how difficult were the circumstances in which Brisson found himself, the very walls of the city being shaken by bombardment, and the shadow of death being seen everywhere, and the very opening paragraph of the text, in which Brisson speaks of "Regii nominis decus, imperii maiestatem, totumque regni statum", has contemporary resonance. Friedrich Sylburg, who acted as editor and proof-reader for the Commelin atelier, has added just a few notes at the end, the preface to these claiming that the original Paris edition of 1590 had been full of errors of transcription and editing. - II: Bound with this is the first edition of Sylburg's "Saracenica", a "theological compilation with many magical deliberations" (cf. Göllner 1878) providing a German Protestant apology against Islam based on works of the Oriental church. Contains extracts from the Panoplia of Zigabenus, a treatise against the "false prophet" Muhammad, the catechism for Saracene converts to Christianity, as well as extracts from Eutychius, Theophanes and Anastasius, printed in Greek and Latin parallel text. The "1591" edition cited by Göllner 1878 (a single supposed copy in Braunschweig) is a ghost, based on a misreading of the indistinct final digit of the imprint. - Binding stained; interior somewhat browned as common due to paper. Provenance: 1) Collection of the German historian Franz Dominikus Häberlin (1720-87) with his engr. bookplate on pastedown and monogrammed stamp on t. p. 2) Wilhelm Gesenius (1786-1842), German orientalist (his lithogr. bookplate on pastedown, with his acquisition note: "bought from D. Katsch [?] for 7 Silbergroschen"). 3) Franz Karl Movers (1806-56), German orientalist (his stamp on t. p.). 4) Hochschule für die Wissenschaft des Judentums, Berlin (stamp on reverse of t. p.; dispersed in 1942). 5) Swedish trade.

        Les essais de Michel seigneur de Montaigne. Edition nouvelle, trouvée après le décès de l'Autheur, reveue & augmentée par luy d'un tiers plus qu'aux précédentes impressions

      Paris: Abel Angelier, 1595. Small folio, bound in sixes. (12 3/4 x 8 3/8 inches). 3 parts in one. [24], 1-209, [1, blank]; 211-523, [1, blank]; 1-231, [1] pp. Large woodcut printer's device to title [Renouard, Marques Typographiques Parisennes 551], woodcut vignettes and initials. Errata on verso of terminal leaf. Nineteenth century red morocco, bound by Trautz-Bauzonnet, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in gilt the second and third, red morocco pastedowns elaborately panelled in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges First complete edition of Montaigne's Essays, enlarged and editied by his adopted daughter Marie le Jars de Gournay. This works comprises all three parts (two parts only had been previously published in Bordeaux in 1580), complete with Montaigne's final additions and corrections from his unpublished manuscripts, as well as Montaigne's 'Au Lecteur' dated 1580 and Gournay's preface. The latter does not appear in the simultaneous Paris edition by Michel Sonnius. Montaigne's Essays are justly celebrated as the essence of humanist thought during the French Rennaissance and the progenitor of the personal essay as a literary genre. His work, and its focus on the nature of man and his search for self knowledge via life experience, would have a profound influence on writers as varied as Descartes to Emerson to Nietzche and on the fields of philosophy, psychology, education and more. In his his final essay, On Experience, Montaigne, who suffered from kidney stones, writes eloquently on health, medicine and suffering in the 16th century. This copy bound by noted 19th-century French bindery Trautz-Bauzonnet. Adams M-1622; Graesse IV, 579 ("La principale édition de Montaigne, pour authenticité du texte"); Tchemerzine VIII, 408; STC French Books, pg. 317.

        Eglentiers poëtens borst-weringh.Amsterdam, Paulus van Ravesteyn for Jan Evertsz. Cloppenburgh, 1619. 4to. Contemporary vellum.

      Alblas, pp. 50-51; Borst & Verkruijsse, eds., pp. 486-487; Praz, p. 475. First edition, in Dutch, of a remarkable example of the cross-fertilization of English and Dutch literature in the early 17th century. Rodenburgh's Dutch adaption of Sir Philip Sidney's The defence of poesie (1595) and of excerpts from Thomas Wilson's The arte of rhetorique form the theoretical prose core of the present work about poetry and expresses this view as well. Rodenburgh complemented it with a great number of exemplary poems, short verse plays, occasional verse and emblematic poems, both borrowed and original, many published here for the first time.With early notes about the content on an endleaf. With occasional minor stains, mostly in the foot margin, a couple small marginal tears and a few tiny marginal worm holes, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. With the vellum slightly soiled and one headband partly detached, but binding still good. A landmark in the history of Dutch poetry.

        Fessae, et Marocchi Regna Africae Celeberr

      Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, 1595. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand color. Image measures 15 1/4" x 19 3/4". This stunning map of the Kingdoms of Fez and Morocco covers the northwestern part of Africa in beautiful detail. Depicts the Barbary Coast and the southern part of Spain and the Straits of Gibraltar, including Madera and the Canary Islands with a note reading "The Canary islands are seven in number, but together with smaller islands there are in fact eleven". The map offers extensive detail on the several tribes and kingdoms in west and north Africa. Topographical and geographical features such as mountains, forests and cities are beautifully rendered in profile.During this time, the Barbary Pirates operated in this area, despite of which Morocco managed to trade sugar, tobacco, gold and leather with France and England.Ortelius based this map on the 1564 Africa map by Gastaldi and maps from Livio Sanuto's Africa atlas. A large inset of the Congo region in the top left of the map was based on Pigafetta's 1591 map of the Congo. A beautifully engraved title cartouche adorns the lower right of the map. Illustrations of ships and a sea monster are included in the Atlantic Ocean.This map was published in the 1595 edition of Ortelius's famous "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which is historically considered the first modern atlas. Based on the Latin text on verso, only 500 copies of this particular atlas were ever printed (van der Broecke 177). The map is in good condition with minimal wear and toning along the original centerfold. Minor foxing in the margins with Latin text on verso. Abraham Ortelius (1527--1598), a Flemish cartographer and geographer, is widely regarded as one of the important and influential cartographers in history. He is known for his "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which was the first modern atlas.

        A new herball, or historie of plants: their names, natures, operations, & vertues: and that not onely of those which are heere growing in this our countrie of England but of al others also of forraine realms commonly vsed in physicke. Now first translated out of French into English, by Henrie Lyte Esquier.

      Edm. Bollifant, London 1595 - A CELEBRATED AND INNOVATIVE HERBAL 4to. pp. (xl), 916, (xlviii). a?b?, c?, B?3P?, 3Q . Black letter, some Roman and Italic. Title within ornate typographical border, historiated and floriated woodcut initials, typographical head and tail-pieces and ornaments, occasional early marginalia. Title expertly re-margined, corners of a2 and a few small holes at gutter of the next few leaves restored, light age yellowing, a little soiling in places. A good, clean copy, in handsome modern calf antique, spine and covers ruled in blind. Third edition (the second printed in England) of the first English version of Dodoens' celebrated Herbal, translated from French by Henrie Lyte. The work "was a national herbarium devoted to species indigenous to the Flemish provinces. The merit of this book was that rather than proceeding by alphabetical order, as Fuchs had done, Dodoens grouped the plants according to their properties and their reciprocal affinities" (DSB). Henry Lyte?s English translation was first published in 1578. Dodoens (1517 - 1585) was the first Flemish botanist to enjoy world wide renown. He was a very successful doctor, physician to the Emperors Maximillian II and Rudolph II and finally Professor of Medicine at Leyden. It was his interest in the medicinal aspects of botany which induced him to write a herbal. A French translation by Charles L'Ecluse appeared very shortly after the original Dutch; Dodoens supervised its progress and took the opportunity to make additions. It forms the basis of the present edition. Lyte (1529 - 1607), after leaving Oxford, travelled extensively in Europe and built a collection of rare plants, which is mentioned by Aubrey. He never published anything original but his translation of Dodoens is of inestimable value. We know from the annotated corrections on Lyte's working copy, now at the British Library, that he was no mechanical translator, but a painstaking and meticulous scholar who in places introduced his own references and criticisms to the text. Dodoens himself also sent him additional material for inclusion. The work has three separate indexes: one for the classical Latin names of plants, one for English names, together with a third index "wherein is contained the Nature, Vertues and Dangers of all the Herbs, Trees and Plants, of which is spoken in this present Booke, or Herball". This last index is essentially a subject index of what plants could do, such as ?‘against the bloody flixe", or "Against Madnesse", or "to clense and mundifie old rotten ulcers", with page references to the different plants that would be helpful. It is difficult to overestimate the influence of Lyte's work. It was the standard book on herbals and their properties in the English language during the later part of the C16 and exercised considerable influence on both Gerard and Parkinson. So far as we know Lyte was never a physician; Gilman described him as 'the first of a long line of British amateur Botanists', but he nevertheless produced a first rate pharmacoepia which must have been invaluable in its day. There are numerous references to plants from the Americas. STC 6986. ESTC S109768. Pritzel 2345n. Lowndes, II 656. Henrey 112. Not in Wellcome or Durling. Alden 595/21. Arents 19.

        Carmina Antonii Gigantis Forosemproniensis Exametra, Elegiaca, Lyrica, et Hendecasyllaba.

      Giovanni Rossi 1595 In 4to (cm 21), cartonato coevo (dorso rifatto), pp. (8), 250, (2 bianche). Marca tipografica al titolo. Alcuni fascicoli lievemente bruniti, ma nel complesso ottima copia genuina e marginosa nella sua prima legatura.RARA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE. Originario di Fossombrone, Antonio Giganti compì i suoi studi sotto la guida di Ludovico Panezio da Fano e dello zio paterno Girolamo, che fu letterato e giurista stimato. Grazie a lui il Giganti conobbe il prelato bolognese Ludovico Beccadelli, nunzio pontificio a Venezia dal 1550, di cui divenne fidatissimo segretario fino alla morte di quest'ultimo (1572). Dal 1555 fino al 1560, anno in cui fu richiamato a Roma, il Beccadelli insieme al suo seguito risiedette a Ragusa in Dalmazia. Quivi il Giganti cominciò la sua collezione di oggetti naturalistici, che divenne negl'anni un vero e proprio museo (cfr. G. Fragnito, Compositio memoriae: il museo di Antonio Giganti, in: "In museo e in villa. Saggi sul Rinascimento perduto"?, Venezia, 1988, pp. 159 - 214), si appassionò alla poesia provenzale e scrisse uno dei suoi primi componimenti De irrito piscatu in litore Illyrico (pp. 74 - 75 della presente edizione). Dopo un soggiorno di tre anni a Trento, Beccadelli si trasferì a Prato. Quivi il Giganti ampliò la sua collezione, continuò ad acquistare codici di poeti provenzali ed italiani del Tre - Quattrocento e divenne membro dell'Accademia fiorentina. Alla morte del Beccadelli, il Giganti entrò al servizio del cardinale Gabriele Paleotti, presso la cui residenza bolognese rimase fino al 1597. Fu in questi anni che egli conobbe Ulisse Aldrovandi ed ebbe modo di visitare il suo museo. Si sa che anche Aldrovandi visitò e redasse un catalogo della raccolta del Giganti, ma pare che questa fosse, per dimensioni ed importanza dei pezzi, alquanto inferiore a quella del celebre professore universitario. Giaganti morì a Fossombrone nel 1598. La presente raccolta poetica, cui nel 1598 fece seguito una postuma Appendix ad volumen poematum anno MDXCV editum, comprende gran parte delle traduzioni dal greco al latino e dei versi scritti dal Giganti nel corso della sua vita. Come tali, i componimenti rispecchiano gli incontri che egli fece e i luoghi in cui abitò negli anni e costituiscono un'interessante fonte documentaria per il periodo. In particolare abbondano i riferimenti a personaggi e luoghi bolognesi e ragusani. Molti sono inoltre i versi di altri autori in risposta a quelli del Giganti. Spiccano nella raccolta un componimento sulla Villa Tuscolano di Giovanni Battista Campeggi vicino Bologna, vari versi indirizzati a Gabriele Paleotti, Carlo Sigonio e, ovviamente, al protettore Ludovico Beccadelli, un componimento in memoria di Girolamo Manuzio, figlio di Paolo, morto bambino a Ragusa, carmina sugli ugonotti francesi, sull'obelisco di Sisto V, sul museo di Ulisse Aldrovandi, vari brevi carmina elegiaca in effigiem di Reginald Pole, Gaspare Contarini, Pietro Bembo, Giovanni Morone, Carlo Borromeo, Aldo Manuzio, Trifone Gabriele, Girolamo Mercuriale e tanti altri, un carmen lyricum indirizzato a Laura Battiferri ed uno sul matrimonio di Francesco Maria della Rovere e Lucrezia d'Este. (cfr. D.B.I., LIV, pp. 661 - 663). Edit16, CNCE20970. BMSTCItalian, p. 300. \

        HUNGARY: HUNGARIA.

      - Rare Lafrery school map of Hungary embraces the area between Vienna, Styria in Slovenia, Zagreb in Croatia, Belgrade in Serbia and Drohobyczka in the South of Poland. Arnoldo di Arnoldi was a Flemish cartographer, born as Arnold Scherpensiel, who worked with Magini in Bologna between 1595-1600 and Antonius Floriani and Florimi in Siena from 1600 to his death two years later. Matteo Florimi probably did an apprenticeship in the workshops of Antonio Lafrery and Claudio Duchetti and belongs because of his style of engraving to a late Lafrery school. All of his works are rare on the market. This rare map is copied after more common map by Gerhard Mercator, first published in 1585. References: Bifolco – Ronca, p. 388; Tooley, p. 23.

        Vita Ignatii Loiolae, qui religionem Clericorum Societatis Iesu Instituit.

      - Lugduni, Iacobum Roussin, 1595. Petit in-12, 676 pages, 20 feuillets, trous de vers dans les marges inferieures sur plusieurs feuillets sans atteindre le texte. Plein vélin de l?époque à rabats avec lacets. Pedro de Ribadeneira (1526-1611) est un jésuite espagnol, proche compagnon de Saint Ignace de Loyola. Outre ses missions diplomatiques pour la Compagnie de Jésus (il fut entre autres envoyé aux Pays-Bas pour y déclarer les Constitutions jésuites et contribua à obtenir la reconnaissance de la Compagnie des Jésuites dans les pays du Nord), il est célèbre pour ses ?uvres littéraires, et en particulier pour sa Vie de d?Ignace de Loyola. Témoin oculaire de la vie de Saint Ignace, il la décrit avec un foisonnement de détails et d?anecdotes, qui tend parfois même à atténuer le caractère grandiose des exploits relatés. Mais outre l?expérience personnelle de l?auteur en tant qu?ami et compagnon de Loyola, l?incroyable documentation sur laquelle est basée toute l??uvre a fait de cet ouvrage une référence dès sa parution en latin à Naples en 1572. La première édition en espagnole revue et commentée par l?auteur est parue en 1583 ; d?autres éditions ont suivi, toutes révisées par l?auteur ; l?édition de 1594 semble contenir le texte final. Très bel exemplaire dans son vélin de l?époque. Texte latin. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Descriptio Publicae Gratulationis Spectaculorum et Ludorum

      ex Officina Plantiniana, Antwerp 1595 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. Folio. pp. 174 [ii]. Roman and italic letter, historiated woodcut initials, head-and tail-pieces, title within engraved architectural border depicting Neptune and Athena, second t.p. after prelims within architectural border with allegories of Time and Fame, topped by double-headed eagle, cherubs holding globes. 29 full-page engravings and 4 double-page engravings by Pieter van der Borcht (1545-1608), all in extraordinarily clear, strong impression. Light age yellowing, occasional fingermarks to margins, slight tear to inner margin at F3, but a lovely, clean, fresh and well-margined copy in handsome contemporary calf, boards treble-ruled in blind, central gilt medallion, floral ornaments in each corner and six spine compartments, corners worn, cracking to extremities of joints on spine, remains of silk ties. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this magnificent festival book celebrating the entry of Archduke Ernst of Austria into Antwerp on 14 June 1594. The condition and detailing of the engravings indicates this must have been one of the earliest copies off the press. They were executed by Pieter van Der Borcht after drawings by Cornelius Floris II and Joos de Momper from the designs of Martin de Vos. The first double-page engraving depicts Ernst's parade approaching the city, images of the city entrance, the columns, stages, and arches erected in the town in honour of the occasion, the city theatre, and a two-page musical score for 6 voices of the song performed to welcome the Archduke. The pageantry continues with an engraving of the 27-foot statue erected in the marketplace of the giant Antigonus who once controlled Antwerp and was known for cutting off the right hands of mariners who did not pay him tribute. The city was liberated by another giant, Brabo, who cut off Antigonus' own hand, the legendary origin of the hands on the city's heraldic arms. The festivities end with nautical displays, fireworks and jousting, each frozen in time by their own splendid double-page engravings. Each is accompanied by descriptions of the festivities, and a commentary on their allegorical significance, by Joannes Bochius (1555-1609), a prominent lawyer and poet from Brussels who was an active official in the local government. The work provides a vivid depiction of the pageantry of the age and, the exuberant showmanship of a hopeful city: Antwerp had suffered sack, siege and plunder at the hands of Spaniards and Italians throughout the 1570s and 80s, its population halved to 55,000 by 1589. "What is unmistakable, once the real plight of the city is realized, is the extent to which the various spectacles prepared for 1594 convey the city's desire to put a brave front on its position, asserting, particularly, through the allegories on the arches of the foreign merchant communities, that the golden age which the city had enjoyed under Charles V was not lost beyond recall" Whether or not Ernst, a minor member of the Hapsburg family could deliver the town remains to be seen: "His relative unimportance is emphasized by the fact that Ernst was never invested with the titles of Margrave of Antwerp or Duke of Brabant" and thus was not entitled to the full ceremonial welcome. (Davidson and Van der Weel, cit. infr.). To add to the misfortune, Ernst died in Brussels 8 months later in February 1595, so the work ends with a funeral oration, a memorial as well as a tribute.

Brand of printer (allegorical scene forge) inset on the title page and large vignette on the back of the last leaf, the same pattern with frame composed of Renaissance allegorical characters. Some initials, a headband and a cul-de-lamp. Lexical Concordance originally published in 1535 under the title Mr. Tullium Ciceronem Observationes in Latin text in two columns of 85 lines. Cardboard posterior shabby: the back is missing. Lined paper margins on the back of the title page. Angular lack filled in sheet 1-2 in upper margin with small affect the text. Some pale foxing, foxing. Browning of paper features German and Swiss papers of that time. Like the Tabula Aurea (gold table) Bergama to the work of Thomas Aquinas, The Thesaurius Ciceronianus is essential to read the huge corpus of vocabulary work of Cicero and indispensable to its study, including teaching. Renaissance found in Cicero's classic, she exhumed the manuscripts and editions abound; it is the Latin author the least controversial and most studied, both in the religious world as civil, hence the need for this lexicon for determining the correct reading his work. "This book, very useful for the understanding of Cicero, first appeared under the title of Observationes in Ciceronem eg Prato Albuini (Brixiae), 1535". (Brunet IV-84). --- 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] Edition de Bâle, complétée et enrichie par Basile Zanchi, Marcello Squarcialupi et Caellii Secundi Curionis. Marque de l'imprimeur (scène allégorique de forge) en médaillon sur la page de titre et grande vignette au verso du dernier feuillet, au même motif avec encadrement Renaissance composé de personnages allégoriques. Quelques lettrines, un bandeau et un cul-de-lampe. Concordance lexicale initialement parue en 1535 sous le titre Observationes in M. Tullium Ciceronem Texte en latin sur deux colonnes de 85 lignes. Reliure en plein cartonnage postérieur défraîchi : le dos est manquant. Papier doublé en marge au verso de la page de titre. Manque angulaire comblé au feuillet 1-2 en marge supérieure avec petite atteinte au texte. Quelques pâles mouillures, rousseurs. Brunissures du papier caractéristiques des papiers allemands et suisses de cette époque. A l'instar de la Tabula Aurea (table d'or) de Bergama pour l'oeuvre de Thomas d'Aquin, Le Thesaurius Ciceronianus est le lexique indispensable à la lecture du corpus énorme de l'oeuvre de Cicéron et l'élément indispensable à son étude, notamment à son enseignement. La Renaissance a trouvé en Cicéron son grand classique, elle en exhumera les manuscrits et les éditions abonderont ; il est l'auteur latin le moins contesté et plus étudié, tant par le monde religieux que celui civil, d'où la nécessité de ce lexique déterminant pour la lecture correcte son oeuvre. «Cet ouvrage, d'une grande utilité pour l'intelligence de Cicéron, a paru d'abord sous le titre d'Observationes in Ciceronem, ex Prato Albuini (Brixiae), 1535».

        THE FLORENTINE HISTORIE Written in the Italian tongue, by Nicholo Macchiavelli, Citizen and Secretarie of Florence And translated into English by T B [Thomas Bedingfield] Esquire

      London: Printed by T. C. [Thomas Creede] for W. P. [William Ponsonby]. 1595. First English Edition. 222 pages. Decorated with woodcut engraved ornamental title page and engraved head and tailpieces. Tiny (3mm deep) chip to the fore edge of the title page and the first few leaves are just a little browned but overall a lovely clean and crisp copy with good margins. Lacking the blank terminal leaf. finely bound in recent 'Grolier' period style full calf binding. Spine with five raised bands. Compartments ruled, lettered and fully decorated in gilt. Burgundy title label, gilt. Triple blind ruled border on boards, surrounding a triple blind ruled panel which frames an elaborate decorative onlay and gilt design. A lovely copy in a fine period style binding of this rare work. "The first example in Italian literature of a national biography" (Britannica). "In the Florentine Histories Machiavelli has the chance to make the protagonists speak in their own voices to persuade or dissuade their fellow-citizens to uphold or reject a course. He can show deliberative rhetoric in action, and make ancient Florentines speak to the Florentines of his times to urge them with powerful and wise words not to imitate the errors that caused the decline of the city." Maurizio Viroli, Machiavelli. In 1520, Machiavelli was commissioned by Giulio de' Medici to write an account of the history of Florence. The book he produced "is the first example in Italian literature of a national biography, the first attempt in any literature to trace the vicissitudes of a people's life in their logical sequence, deducing each successive phase from passions or necessities inherent in preceding circumstance, reasoning upon them from general principles, and inferring corollaries for the conduct of the future." (Britannica). It is all the more unusual because Machiavelli followed the humanist style "of inventing speeches. Even though he was not present and could not have been present, he puts appropriate speeches into the mouths of actual historical figures as if they were characters in a play of his... Fact, in their [the humanists?'] view, needs to be filled out with opinion, and it is the duty of the historian, in the absence of scribes and witnesses, to infer human intention and to make it explicit in speeches, adding sense to actions in order to arrive at truth." (Harvey Claflin Mansfield, Machiavelli's Virtue). The Florentine Historie was not a dispassionate, purely factual account, but a tribute to "Machiavelli's desire to write a history that would inspire all lovers of the common good of man in whatever age or nation." The speeches he fabricated, the motivations behind the events he wrote about "are developed beyond dramatic requirements into expositions of social and political truths suggested by Florentine events." (Allan Gilbret, Machiavelli). Because "his historical context includes both the facts of his time, which would have influenced his writing of history, and the historiography characteristic of his time, together with the conception of history underlying those historiographic methods," he created a far more complete image of Florence than could ever be garnered from an impersonal examination of the city's archives (Mansfield). With translator's dedication and Machiavelli's own Introduction ("Proeme"). (Pollard and Redgrave 17162.)
