NANI, Giovanni Battista
Histoire de la republique de Venise.
1682. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Giovan Battista Nani, a 17th-century Venetian ambassador and librarian, wrote his most famous book "History of Republic of Venice" in his free time. This work deals with the foundation of Venice as well as the Thirty Years' War. Nani writes of important figures from Flanders, Spain, Norway, Sweden, and other European powers such as: · Ferdinand II, Holy Roman Emperor · Christian IV of Denmark, Norway · Christian the Younger of Brusnwick, Halberstadt · Ernst von Mansfeld · Charles II Gonzaga · Ambrogio Spinola · Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden · Christina of Sweden · Cardinal Richelieu · Isabella Clara Eugenia, Netherlands This complete four-volume printing, translated by Francois Tallemand and Paulin de Masclari (Barbier), includes an added engraved title page and is illustrated throughout with 27 portrait engravings. This edition is particularly desirable because it was published by Elzevier. While the title page states 'Pierre Marteau', Marteau was a fictitious name of the famed Dutch printers.
