      Paris, Chez Ambroise Drouart, 1600. Folio. Bound in one contemporary full limp vellum binding with a bit of spotting and soiling. Contemporary owner's name torn out of top margin of first title-page. Faint damp stain to two first leaves and a light dampstain to last ab. 40 leaves of the Plato, getting heavier on the last five index-leaves. A bit of occasional minor light brownspotting. All in all a very attractive copy, with good margins. Roman and Italic letter, and some Greek. Title-pages printed in red and black and with large woodcut printer's devices. Woodcut head- and tail-pieces and numerous beautiful woodcut initials. (24), 499, (41, -tables) pp. + (8), 420, (10, -table) pp.. Extremely scarce first editions of the important first complete French translations of the Politics of Aristotle and the Republic of Plato. We have not been able to locate any earlier printings of the two works in any bibliographies, nor have we been able to find any in the library databases, but it seems that Bibliothèque nationale du France owns a copy of at least the Aristotle with a title-page stating 1599, also Paris by Drouart. We thus assume that this is the same printing, but with a variant title-page. Both of these monumental works are translated by Louis Le Roy (or Leroy), the great classical scholar, and have his learned an important commentaries, including additions and amendments by Louis Morel, who published the work with Drouart. For many many years this first complete translation in to French was considered by far the best and it exercised a tremendous influence on 17th century French thought. Louis Le Roy (ab.1510-1577) was a famous French humanist scholar and professor of Greek at the Collège Royal in 1572. He used his own magnificent translations of Plato and Aristotle in his voluminous political and historical writings; his masterwork "De la vicissitude ou variété des choses en l'univers", 1576, is considered a pioneering work on cyclical change in cultural history. He had previously published parts of his translation of both Aristotle's Politics and Plato's Republic, before his death, but only smaller sections. In the dedication in Aristotle, dated 1576, Le Roy states his intention of completing his translation of Plato's Republic and, provided that his health holds, to add a commentary that would help the understanding of the text. When he died, he left a number of finished works behind that had never been printed, among them his monumental full translations of Aristotle's Politics and Plato's Republic, which the scholarly printer Frederic Morel completed. It took more that 20 years, however, to bring the printing of them to fruition. The Republic is augmented with a translation of Plato's Phaedon.Aristotle: BM STC Fr. C16, p.28; Brunet: I, 469; Cranz-Schmitt. Plato: BM STC Fr. C16, p. 354; Brunet: IV, 702; Adams: P1467
