        World map - Willem Bleau, 1606 or later.

      ?Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica Ac Hydrographica Tabula? copper engraving first published in 1606 by Willem Bleau in Amsterdam. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 55 x 41 cm.Nice example of Blaeu?s classic world map in the so-called Mercator projection. This is one of the most famous landmarks of 17th-century cartography. Engraved and signed by Joshua van den Ende, reduced from Blaeu?s wall map of 1605, it first appeared as a separate publication in 1606. In 1630 it was incorporated into Willem Blaeu?s ?Atlantis Appendix? and then into the ?Atlas Novus? in all subsequent editions until 1658. Its influence was enormous, and it was closely copied by some of the greatest Dutch cartographers, such as Pieter Van der Keere and Johannes Janssonius. Others, such as the house of Hondius, were forced to produce their own highly decorative maps to compete.Geographically, the map was a reduction of Blaeu's large map of the world published in 1605. The charming cartouche in the interior of North America mentions its discovery by Columbus in 1492 and being named after Amerigo Vespucci in 1499. There is some confusion in the depiction of the landmass of the East coast of the United States, probably as a result of Indian reports of large bodies of water inland, almost certainly the Great Lakes. California is correctly shown as a peninsula. The Le Maire straits, separating Tierra del Fuego from South America, copied from an earlier map by Hondius, are clearly shown. In the north, a note beside ?Nova Zembla? in the Arctic declares that it was reached by Willem Barents in 1596. In the Far East Korea is shown as an island and northern Australia is shown without any place names.Decoratively the most striking features of this map are the magnificent and innovative panelled borders. The upper border shows allegorical figures of the sun and moon and the five known planets; Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Along the bottom border are depictions of the seven wonders of the ancient world; the hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Colossus at Rhodes, the Pyramids at Giza, the Mausoleum of Hallicarnassus, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia and the Lighthouse at Alexandria. Running down the left hand side of the map are representations of the four elements (Fire, Air, Water and Earth) and on the right, the Four Seasons.Reference : Rodney Shirley ?The Mapping of the World?, no. 255Price: ?11.500,- (incl. frame).

        Historie of Twelve Caesars, Emperours of Rome

      1606. First Edition . SUETONIUS. The Historie of Twelve Caesars, Emperors of Rome: Written in Latine by C. Suetonius Tranquillus, and newly translated into English by Philemon Holland. London: Matthew Lownes, 1606. Small folio in sixes (measures 8 by 11 inches), contemporary full limp vellum, ink manuscript title to spine, yapp edges, vellum ties. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $16,000.First edition in English of Suetonius’ dramatic biographies of the Caesars, the important Holland translation. An excellent copy in contemporary vellum binding.""De Vita Caesarum, from Julius Caesar to Domitian, is largely responsible for that vivid picture of Roman society and its leaders, morally and politically decadent, that dominated historical thought until modified in modern times by the discovery of nonliterary evidence. The biographies are organized by topics: the emperor's family background, career before accession, public actions, private life, appearance, personality and death… The earlier lives down to Nero, especially those of Julius Caesar and Octavius Caesar, are much the fullest, perhaps because as an antiquarian Suetonius was drawn to the documentary byways of an earlier age… [it is] exciting reading"" (Britannica). ""Classical 'lives' became prototypes for later writings about individuals. A rival for Plutarch was Suetonius (flourished A.D. 112-121), whose Lives of the Caesars overflowed with anecdotes of lust, violence, and idiosyncrasy"" (Boorstin, The Creators, 586). Holland was considered the ""translator general in his age… while the plague raged at Coventry [where Holland lived] in 1605-06, Holland translated Suetonius' Historie of Twelve Caesars"" (DNB). The work was Robert Graves' primary inspiration for his novel I, Claudius (1934). With woodcut initials and elaborate woodcut chapter headpieces incorporating medallion portraits. Without first and final blanks. STC 23423, with Holland's name on the letterpress title page. Brueggemann, 703. Moss II:636. Harris, 145. Palmer, 100. Early owner signature on title page.Text quite clean, one tie partial. An extraordinary copy in original vellum.

        Emblemata amatoria: iam demum emendata. [Amsterdam, ca. 1610]. Oblong 4to. With engraved title-page and 24 circular engraved emblems by Jacob de Gheyn, with captions in Latin, French or Italian, mottos in Latin in the borders of the emblems, and captions and 2 distichs in Latin on the facing pages. 18th-century vellum.

      - Landwehr, Emblem Books Low Countries 215 (3 copies); Praz, p. 96 (note); STCN (4 copies). Very rare edition using the engraved title-page and plates of Daniel Heinsius's first original emblem book, but with a different Latin text, the only edition with the present distichs in Latin by the otherwise unknown I.A. Timmermans, possibly a humorous pseudonym of Heinsius, using a Dutch pseudonym for this Latin edition instead of the Latin pseudonym Theocritus à Ganda, which he used in 1606 for the Dutch Spiegel vande . vrouwen.Although the title-page and the engraved emblems are the same as Heinsius's earlier Emblemata amatoria, the accompanying poetry is quite different. The first poem is signed with the initials I.A.T. and emblem 24 with the full name I.A. Timmermans. Also interesting is that three of the emblems bear the name of Hugo Grotius, but his actual contribution is unknown.Water stains in lower margin (a few leaves restored), one quire misbound, some occasional thumbing and first three leaves slightly soiled. Reasonable copy.

        GRÜNDLICHER GEGENBERICHT AUFF DEN FALSCHEN BERICHT UNND VERMAINTE ERINNERUNG DAVIDIS RUNGII, WITTENBERGISCHEN PROFESSORS, VON DER TYRANNISCHEN BÄPSTISCHEN VERFOLGUNG DESS H. EVANGELII IN STEYERMARCKT, KÄRNDTEN UND CRAYN IN WELCHEM MIT GRUND DER WARHEIT.

      Graz: Georg Widmanstetter 1606 - 4° (16 x 20.5 cm): [11] (Title page printed in red and black), 158, [41], contemporary velum with gilt blind-stamped tooling (paper slightly age-toned with tiny tears and folds, hand written-notes and ex-libris on fly leaves and title page, binding slightly dusty with small holes and cracking to the spine). This work is an extremely important and eminently readable primary source on the activities of the Counterreformation in Inner Austria during the turn of the 16th to 17th Centuries. It consists of the entertaining response of the Roman Catholic provost Jakob Rosolenz (c. 1570-1629) to a work written by David Rungius, Professor of Thelogy in Wittenberg, entitled Bericht und Erinnerung von der Tyrannischen Bäpstischen Verfolgung des heil. Evangelii in Steyermark, Kärnten und Krain (1601). While Rungius’ book was a dry, scholarly and theocratic attack on the Counterreformation, Rosolenz’s reprise is a remarkably unacademic, honest and entertaining account written by a frontline participant in many of the dramatic events of Archduke Ferdinand III’s campaign against Protestantism in Inner Austria. For over four centuries, Rosolenz’s book has remained one of the most authoritative primary sources on the Counterreformation in the region, and perhaps the most engaging and enjoyable to read. Until the late 1590s, a very uneasy environment prevailed in Inner Austria, whereupon the Roman Catholic Archdukes of the Habsburg family ruled over a largely Protestant populous, dominated by a mainly Protestant noble class. Continually threatened by the real possibility of an Ottoman invasion, the Habsburgs needed the financial support and cooperation of the Protestant nobles and, in return, had to begrudgingly tolerate Protestantism. This all ended when the zealously Catholic Archduke Ferdinand III (1578-1637) reached the age of majority in 1595. Educated under the most severe Jesuit regime in Ingolstadt, Ferdinand was hell-bent on destroying Protestantism in his domains, regardless of the costs or consequences. Martin Brenner, the Prince-Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Graz-Seckau, brought a rather extreme, yet ingenious, design to the attention of the archduke. He proposed that Ferdinand should assemble an army that would travel throughout Inner Austria in order to systematically destroy Protestant churches, burn books and remove the preachers in every city, town and village along on the way. Their objective would be to annihilate any and every sign of evangelic culture, so that the people would convert back to Catholicism, and would never look back.Rare editio princeps of a highly important primary source on the Counterreformation in Styria. .

        De Jesu Christi servatoris nostri vera anno, consideration novissimae sententiae Laurentii Suslygae Poloni... [SYLVA CHRONOLOGICA]

      35-[3] pages et [1] feuillet Francofurti, In officina Typographica Wolgangi Ricteri, 1606, , 35-[3] pages et [1] feuillet blanc, cartonnage postérieur, muet, Quatrième et dernière partie du De Stella nova sur la question de l'année de naissance du Christ, souvent citée par son titre courant "Sylva chronologica". Ici, Kepler réagit à la lecture d'un écrit de l'historien jésuite Laurentius Suslyga, Velificatio seu Theoremata de anno ortus et mortis domini, paru en 1605 ; l'auteur y postule que le calcul de notre ère commune est en retard de 4 ans. Cette publication coïncide avec l'apparition de la Nova Stella observée d'octobre 1604 à octobre 1605, à la faveur d'une conjonction Jupiter-Saturne, et que Kepler associe à l'étoile des Rois-Mages rapportée dans l'Évangile de Matthieu. L'astronome reprend ainsi les arguments historiques de Suslyga et établit, par des calculs astronomiques, une nouvelle date pour la naissance du Christ : -5 avant notre ère. Le De Stella nova a paru à l'automne 1606 : seuls 600 exemplaires ont été imprimés. Les exemplaires complets sont d'une insigne rareté et ses parties isolées le sont également. Une mouillure marginale fine et une auréole pâle en pied des feuillets. Biblioteca Kepleriana n° 27. Lalande 145.

Copenhagen: Henrico Waltkirch, [25th September] Thimm p.97. Pardoel 172. Lacking the engraved portraits of Christian IV (following the title) and the author (O2 recto). Two small holes at the foot of the title, marginal tears repaired C3, P4, Y2 and final index leaf, small stains pp.111, 165 and 207, some browning, especially to the first five leaves, minor dampstain in inner margin towards the end, and index leaf a little soiled. Bookplate of Robert Martin, American stuntman and collector of weapons. Accompanying this volume is a 353ff typescript of an English translation by A. F. Johnson, in quarto, recently bound in brown cloth with a black label. The first engraving (on p.27) is unnumbered, and is followed by a sequence numbered 1-179, then a second sequence numbered 2-12. This is the first Danish book to be illustrated with copperplate engravings and is one of the most celebrated examples of baroque printing. Salvator Fabris (1544-1618) was an Italian fencing master from Padua. He was in the service of Johan Frederik of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorp, Archbishop of Bremen in the 1590s and Christian IV of Denmark from 1601 to 1606. There is also a story that he was summoned to England to help Shakespeare choreograph the sword actions in Hamlet. Lo Schermo, overo Scienza d'Arme was translated into German in 1615, and published in various editions until 1713. It was highly regarded by fencing masters throughout Europe (Fabris being regarded as "a man of the greatest name in our profession") and the work was quoted and plagiarized (notably by Nicoletto Giganti).

Très rare réunion des cinq textes en édition originale de la controverse développée au fil des ans entre les Maîtres barbiers-chirurgiens Jacques de Marque et Jean Lanay (ou Launay) sur la nature de la moelle des os. Maître Barbier Chirurgien à Paris, Jacques de Marque (1569-1622), gascon d'origine, considère que la moelle est une sorte d'excrément des os alors que Lanay la considère comme une nourriture. Philippe Portal dans son "Histoire de l'anatomie et de la chirurgie" publié en 1770 fait l'éloge du "raisonnemenr & de l'expérience" dont Marque se sert pour prouver sa théorie. Mais selon Dezeimeris III, 527, Marque s'est surtout distingué par un traité des bandages "qui fut longtemps le meilleur qu'on possédât".

        Le citadin de Geneve ou Response au cavalier de Savoye.

      Paris, Se vendent à Paris : chez Pierre Le Bret demeurant rue S. Jean Latran à l'enseigne de la Grosse Escritoire, 1606.Petit in-8 de [22]-383 pages, demi-basane brune à coins, dos à nerfs orné de filets dorés, pièce de titre brune (reliure XVIIIe), tranche rouge, manque le dernier feuillet blanc. Page de titre empoussierrée, parfois un peu court de marge. Ex-libris et noms de posseurs en page de garde. Première édition de cette oeuvre polémique, extrêmement importante pour la source de documentation qu'elle représente sur Genève et la Savoie au début du 17e siècle. Cet ouvrage répond à celui de Claude-Louis Buttet "Le Cavalier de Savoye ou Response au Soldat Français" paru pour la première fois en 1605. L'ouvrage contient "Les Annales du Traite de Paix fait et conclu à S. Jullien le 21 de Juillet 1603". Jean Sarasin, plusieurs fois syndic, membre du conseil des deux-cents et du Petit Conseil, habile diplomate, fut l'un des négociateurs, avec Jacques Lect, de la paix de Saint-Julien en 1603. C'est d'ailleurs avec Lect qu'ils publient ce pamphlet de propagande antisavoyarde. C'est dans cet ouvrage qu'il est fant mention pour la première fois de Catherine Cheynel, alias la"Mère Royaume": "Vers la porte de la Monnoye, il y en eust aussi une qui mit par terre son homme du haut des fenestres d'une maison, à grands coups de pierre, et avec un fonds de tonneau qu'elle luy jetta sur le cerveau." Point de soupe donc, mais du courage. Hardi! Cf. Dictionnaire biographique des Genevois et des Vaudois, II, p. 445 "pamphlet d'un style enflé et maniéré, dans lequel il prodigue l'injure, mais où il ne néglige aucun argument propre à défendre son pays et à mettre en évidence la bonté de sa cause"; et "Notice bibliographique sur le Cavalier de Savoie, Le Citadin de Genève et le fléau de l'aristocratie genevoise", in Mémoires et Documents de la Société d'Histoire et d'Archéologie de Genève, XIX, pp. 318 à 343.

" D'ou est ce que procède le sommeil? " Ses propos vont de l'interrogation existentielle au propos d'une futilité parfois déconcertante.

Octavo (5-3/4" x 4"). Contemporary limp paper-covered binding with lapped edges, early hand-lettered titles to spine and foot of text block. Some soiling, rubbing to extremities with wear to foot of spine, lower corners and lower portion of front cover's fore-edge, front hinge cracked, pastedowns just beginning to detach. Light toning to text. Recent gift inscription to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. * First published around 1474 and attributed to Jodocus of Erfurt, this popular legal dictionary went through more than 70 editions over the next 150 years. The definitions are mostly derived from the Vocabularius Stuttgardiensis (1432), the Collectio Terminorum Legalium (c. 1400), and the Introductorium pro Studio Sacrorum Canonum of Hermann von Schildesch (c. 1330). The main text is preceded by Compendiolum de Ortographia, a short essay on legal orthography by Albericus de Rosate. It is followed by Tractatus de Modo Studendi, a longer essay on legal study by Caccialupe. The dictionary was produced for laymen, but it was very popular with law students, which explains the appended essays that are common in all later editions.

        Exquisita & magno aliquot mensium periculo lustrata et iam retecta Freti Magellanici facies

      1606. Importante mappa dello stretto di Magellano, antecedente alle scoperte di Le Maire. La carta è inclusa negli atlanti Mercator/Hondius a partire dal 1606; orientata con il Nord in basso, come mostra la bellissima bussola incisa al centro, la mappa identifica una vasta terra a Sud con il nome di "Tierra del Fuogo". I dettagli della costa derivano dalle informazioni raccolte da Bernardus Joannis Monasteriensis, che partecipò alla spedizione olandese nello stretto del 1599 - 1600. La spedizione è illustrata nella mappa che raffigura dei vascelli con bandiera olandese. Realizzata prima della scoperta di una rotta oltre la Terra del Fuoco, la mappa precede la scoperta di Cape Horn, datata 1616. Una delle più importanti ed antiche carte sulle scoperte geografiche. Incisione in rame, coloritura antica con ritocchi, lievi pieghe di carta centrali, testo francese al verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Important early map of the Straits of Magellan, predating the discovery of the Straits of Le Maire. A classic early Mercator map, featuring 3 large strapwork cartouches, one of which includes a profile view of the entrance to the Strait. The ornate compass rose point downward, indicating North at the bottom of the map. Seven sailing ships and both land and sea creatures are illustrated. The Southern Land is identified as Tierra Del Fuogo. In the Strait, there are approximately 15 place names identified, along with 30 - 40 soundings. Rhumb lines emanate from the compass rose. The coast line of Tierra del Fuego quickly turns from charted lands to conjecture, trailing off to become a part of the unknown southern continent. The geographic details for the map of the Straits of Magellan came from Bernardus Joannis Monasteriensis who had participated in the first Dutch expedition to sail through the Straits in 1599 - 1600. That expedition, which was led by the Duke Sebaldi de Waerdt, is portrayed on the map in the form of six sailing ships flying the Dutch Flag in what is labeled the "Mar del Zur." The map was printed from a copper plate engraved by Lambert Cornelisz in 1606. Made prior to the confirmation of a route around Tierra del Fuego, the Strait was, at that time, the only passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Controlled by the Dutch, exorbitant fees were charged for the passage. One of the most fascinating and decorative of all regional American maps, illustrating an important period in the history of the discovery of the Americas and water routes from the Atlantic to the Pacific, predating the discovery of Cape Horn in 1616. Copperplate, with contemporary colour and some light paper folds in the centre, otherwise in excellent condition. French text on the verso. Amsterdam Amsterdam 470 350

        Printed blank form completed in ink and signed by Edmund Castell (Semitic scholar, 1606-1685). [London], 2. V. 1664.

      1606. 1 f. (c. 190:85 mm). With autogr. signature and papered seal. Payment receipt for the final installment for one of the earliest works in British printing history published by subscription: "Received this second day of May in the year of our Lord God 1664 of John Gill Esquire the summe of twenty shillings being the full intire payment of four pounds by him Subscribed or Promised towards the Printing of a Lexicon and Grammars of the Orientall Languages: Witnesse my hand and seal, the day and yeare above written [...]". The receipt is filled in and signed by the theologian and Semitic scholar Dr. Edmund Castell, and the work subscribed is Castell's life-work, the 'Lexicon Heptaglotton'. Upon this work, "which has long challenged the admiration, and defied the competition, of foreigners; and which [...] has raised an eternal monument of literary fame" (Dibdin I, 34), Castell had been at work since 1651; it was published in two folio volumes in 1669, five years after Gill completed his payment and twelve years after the publication of Brian Walton's six-volume polyglot Bible edition, in the preparation of which Castell had been a valuable help and to which the 'Lexicon' was issued as a supplement. In his DNB article on Castell, the orientalist and historian Stanley Lane-Poole recounts the story of the Lexicon's composition, told with "sad simplicity" in the dedication to Charles II: "The eighteenth year of composition, he writes, has been reached, and that long period has been filled with unremitting toil of seldom less than sixteen or eighteen hours a day, with constant vigils, with bodily suffering [...], with loss of fortune, and finally all but the loss of sight. [...] He had scarcely any assistance. [...] He mentions three scholars who rendered him more protracted service, but these deserted him at last, even his printer mutinied, and he was left alone in his old age to finish the gigantic work. One of his assistants suddenly died, and Castell had to pay for his burial, and took charge of his orphan child. He had not only spent his life and strength; he had reduced himself to poverty by expending over 12,000 £ upon the work; and even so, he was 1,800 £ in debt, and had become responsible for some debts of his brother, for which the unfortunate scholar was sent to prison in 1667. This condition of actual distress, aggravated by the loss of much of his library and effects in the great fire, [...] at length procured him a scanty measure of royal favour. [...] Castell brought out his 'Lexicon' in 1669. It marks an epoch in Semitic scholarship [...], but [...] met with a deplorably cold welcome in England. The 'London Gazette' contains an advertisement in which the unhappy scholar states that for three-quarters of a year he or his servants have attended in London at the place of sale, but that the subscribers send so slowly for their copies that he must fix the following Lady-day as the last date of attendance. At the time of his death about five hundred copies still remained unsold, and his niece and executrix, Mrs. Crisp, lodged the remnant of her uncle's life-work in one of her tenant's houses at Martin in Surrey, where for some years the rats played such havoc with the learned pages that when the stock came to be examined scarcely a single copy could be made up from the wreck of the sheets, and the fragments were sold for the sum of 7 £" (III, 1180f.). - Slightly wrinkled. Cf. Vater/Jülg 352. Zaunmüller 344f. Dibdin I, 31ff.

La Corée est représentée comme une île, tandis que les côtes de la Nouvelle-Zemble, archipel de l'océan Arctique russe récemment exploré par Willem Barentsz entre 1594 et 1596, sont partiellement dessinées. Les continents asiatique et américain sont séparés par un imaginaire détroit d'Anian, nom donné au passage du Nord-ouest au XVIe siècle par les Espagnols, qui le croyaient à tort relier les deux continents. La carte est ornée d'un beau cartouche de titre, de deux personnages tartare et samoyède, et d'une vignette représentant une scène de camp au nord-ouest de la Sibérie. Texte latin au verso. Rousseurs dans la partie gauche de la carte, près du cadre ; mouillure claire dans la marge supérieure, petit manque de papier dans les marges gauche et droite. Exemplaire brillamment aquarellé à l'époque avec rehauts d'or. van der Krogt, 8050:1A.

        Vocabularium Utriusque Iuris [Juris], Una cum Tract Admodum Utili...

      1606. An Important Early Law Dictionary Nebrija, Antonio de [144?-1522]. [Abericus de Rosate (1290-1360)]. [Caccialupe, Giovanni Battista]. [Jodocus of Erfurt, Presumed Compiler of Vocabularius]. Vocabularium Utriusque Iuris, Una cum Tract. Admodum Utili de Ratione Studii. Accessit Lexicon Iuris Civilis, In Quo Varii & Insignes Errores Accurtii Notantur. Antonio Nebrissensi Viro Doctiss. Auctore. Nunc Denuo Studio, Ac Diligentia ab Innumeris Erroribus Expurgatum Multisque Multarum Vocum Significationibus Illustratum. Venice: Apud Petrum Bertanum, 1606. 414 ff. Main text in parallel columns. Octavo (5-3/4" x 4"). Contemporary limp paper-covered binding with lapped edges, early hand-lettered titles to spine and foot of text block. Some soiling, rubbing to extremities with wear to foot of spine, lower corners and lower portion of front cover's fore-edge, front hinge cracked, pastedowns just beginning to detach. Light toning to text. Recent gift inscription to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. * First published around 1474 and attributed to Jodocus of Erfurt, this popular legal dictionary went through more than 70 editions over the next 150 years. The definitions are mostly derived from the Vocabularius Stuttgardiensis (1432), the Collectio Terminorum Legalium (c. 1400), and the Introductorium pro Studio Sacrorum Canonum of Hermann von Schildesch (c. 1330). The main text is preceded by Compendiolum de Ortographia, a short essay on legal orthography by Albericus de Rosate. It is followed by Tractatus de Modo Studendi, a longer essay on legal study by Caccialupe. The dictionary was produced for laymen, but it was very popular with law students, which explains the appended essays that are common in all later editions. OCLC locates 7 copies of this imprint, 4 in North American law libraries (Boston College, Harvard, Library of Congress, UT-Austin). This imprint not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        REMONSTRANCE, OU HARANGUE SOLEMNELLE, faicte en la Cour de la Seneschaucee, & siege Presidial d'Agenois, & Gascongne, à Agen.

      1606Paris, François Huby, 1606. In-12 (102 X 166) veau blond glacé, encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, avec fer doré dans les angles, dos cinq nerfs filetés, caissons dorés ornés aux petits fers, guirlande dorée en queue, pièce de titre grenat, bordure intérieure entièrement ornée d'une dentelle dorée, tranches rouges (reliure circa 1870) ; (2) ff. blancs ajoutés à la reliure, (1) f. blanc, (4) ff. de titre et dédicace à la reine Marguerite de Valois, 134 ff.. Ex-libris manuscrit sur le titre. Petites taches brunes sur les plats. ÉDITION ORIGINALE et unique édition de cet « ouvrage rare et recherché » (Brunet). On n'a que fort peu de renseignements sur Jean DARNALT, premier historien agenais qui fut nommé le 6 février 1597 procureur du roi au Présidial d'Agen. Né à ou près de Villeneuve-sur-Lot vers 1565, M. de Bellecombe le fait mourir en 1600, à l'âge de 35 ans. On s'accorde à penser que cette singulière harangue n'ait été prononcée par l'auteur dans la forme que nous lui connaissons. Elle dut certainement être remaniée, complétée et divisée en chapitres pour l'impression. On la retrouve en partie dans la préface des "Réflexions singulières sur l'ancienne Coustume d'Agen" (1665) de Jacques Ducros. « Malgré ses négligences naïves et ses fréquentes obscurités, la chronique de Darnalt n'en reste pas moins un livre très curieux et qu'on ne peut se dispenser de consulter pour l'histoire de l'agenais » (Jules Andrieu). EXEMPLAIRE D'ÉTIENNE BALUZE (1630-1718), avec son ex-libris manuscrit en bas du titre « Stephanus Baluzius Tutelengis », et sur le feuillet blanc la probable côte du livre dans sa bibliothèque « n°8265 ». Célèbre jurisconsulte et historiographe, originaire de Tulle, il fut également le secrétaire de l'archevêque de Toulouse, Pierre de Marca, et le bibliothécaire de Colbert. L'exemplaire est ensuite passé dans la bibliothèque de Louis-Hector de Galard de Brassac de Béarn, comte et prince de Béarn (1802-1871), militaire, diplomate et homme politique français, avec son ex-libris armorié de la « Bibliothèque du château de Wideville ». C'est très probablement le comte de Galard qui a fait exécuté la reliure en veau blond qui pare désormais cet exemplaire, et qui a fait rapporter sur un des premiers feuillets blancs ajoutés à la reliure l'ex-libris d'Étienne-François d'Aligre, comte de Maran (1727-1798), premier président au Parlement de Paris et qui avait réuni une très belle bibliothèque. AGRÉABLE EXEMPLAIRE en veau blond du XIXe, de belle provenance. [Bibliographie : Andrieu, "Bibliographie de l'agenais", 211-212 - Labadie, "Catalogue de la bibliothèque", n°3041, «Rare » - Guiguard, II, page 10 - Provenance : Étienne Baluze (ex-libris manuscrit), Étienne-François d'Aligre, comte de Maran (ex-libris) et Louis-Hector de Galard de Brassac de Béarn, comte et prince de Béarn (ex-libris gravés)].
