A General Chronological History of France, Beginning before the Reign of King Pharamond, And ending with the Reign of King Henry the Fourth: Containing both the Civil and Ecclesiastical Transactions of that Kingdom.
London: Printed by T. N. for Thomas Basset, Samuel Lowndes, Christopher Wilkinson, William Cademan, and Jacob Tonson, 1683 A fair copy of the first English translation of this classic work by the then Historiographer of France, Francois Eudes de Mezeray 1610-1683. Classed as 'fair' because it lacks the frontispiece and the contemporary full leather binding is worn, with some splitting at the joint between the spine and the front board. The contents are generally very clean and sound. The binding has raised bands to spine and the remains of lining to the boards. The endpapers appear contemporary. Contents: title page (small repaired tear to bottom edge; some older reinforcement to the gutter; very small ?worm track to top); dedication to James of York 2pp; To the Reader 2pp; text to book I ;; 1-353 (some light marking to pp 51, 97/8; small tear to bottom margin p 325 with a little loss); blank; title page Book II; text pp 357-654 (small worm track in gutter of bottom margin to p 425; loss of corner tip p356; title page Book III; text pp 657-968 (mispagination pp 662 to 665, and 804 to 705 to 806, but no text loss; brown mark p683; small hole p743); Tables 60pp; Finis.
