EMILIO, Paolo [Paulus AEMYLIUS] [d.1529]
De Rebus Gestis Francorum. Libri IIII [=IX]
Paris: Jodocus Badius Ascensius, [c1519-20]., 1519. folio. ff. 287, [2]. title within four-part woodcut border of armor, dolphins, &c. (Renouard D, in use July 1519-Feb. 1520). Badius woodcut device on title (Renouard 1). cribl? initials. 17th century mottled calf (worn but solid, joints cracked, internally a very good wide-margined copy). signature on title of Joannes Brecht of Tournon. Sixth Issue, comprising the second printing of the first four books (signatures a-u), the first printing of books V-IX (signatures x-S), and a revised errata. Emilio's history of the French monarchy to the mid-fifteenth century was commissioned by Charles VIII. The first four books were originally printed by Badius about 1517, reissued about 1519 with books V-VII added, and issued again together with books VIII and IX. The first four books were then replaced by a new, corrected printing. The difference between the fourth, fifth, and sixth issues is in the two errata leaves. Here they are unsigned and titled Recognitio, and have the errors for all nine books printed as one list. Mortimer's dating of the fifth issue as 1530 would appear to be incorrect, this version of the fine woodcut title border being found only in seven books issued by Badius between 22 July 1519 and 13 February 1520. Adams A231. Brunet I 64-65. Mortimer, Harvard French 16th Century Books, 196n. Renouard, Badius II, pp. 2-3 (this issue not described). Renouard, Imprimeurs II, 752C. cfBM STC French p. 4.. 1st Edition.
