Paris: Pierre le Voirrier for Lucas Breyer, 1583. Paris: Pierre le Voirrier for Lucas Breyer, 1583. First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Very Good Condition. First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Contemporary vellum, soiled, one corner repaired, binding coming away from the spine at the rear, front endpaper rumpled, first few pages slightly soiled with slight wear at the edges, bump to the upper right corner early on, slight browning occasionally but overall quite fresh. Guy du Faur's Plaisirs de la Vie Rustique appeared in 1574 and was a sensation, provoking a number of imitators, the chief of which are collected here in first or early editions, all published by Pierre le Voirrier for the widow of Lucas Breyer. Four volumes bound as one, each with a separate title page. 36; (12); 28, (2); 33, (2) leaves. Historiated initials throughout and one full page emblem with notes around it in an early hand. Brunet III 734/35.& & Though inspired by Roman models, especially Horace, these French romanticizations of the rural life were almost entirely novel, and blended ruminations on the love of nature, solitude and the pastoral with deep appreciations of cultivated landscapes. Binet's has a number of references to angling, including a long poem (likely by his brother) titled La Truite and dedicated to Ronsard. Though these were reprinted frequently over the following century, all early editions are rare and the first editions especially so. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Poetry; Fishing & Hunting. Inventory No: 044739.
