Description:

and 1550. Two works in one volume, thick 8vo (105 x 170mm). I: 448 ff.; II: 109 ff. Collation: A-Z(8), Aa-Za(8), AA-KK(8). Red hand-ruled border to title and text pages, printed throughout in a fine italic. Contemporary full brown morocco, covers stamped in gilt with a winged heart aflame and within an oval surrounded by motto based on Psalm 54, "Et Volabo et Requiescam" [I will fly away and be at rest], elaborate entwined leafy cornerpieces within multiple rules and rolls, flat spine richly gilt, all edges gilt; (neatly recased with joints expertly repaired, some slight scuffs, internally a clean copy with crisp pages). Fine Parisian printing by Michel de Vascosan of Paolo Emiliís "History" with Arnoul Le Ferronís additions, two works often bound together, all in an authentic French tan calf intricately gilt with period crest and a motto reflecting Psalm 54. Michel de Vascosan produced the first complete edition of this history of France in 1539 where French Parliament gave him the privilege of publishing the work for two years. Previously, the first edition of Emiliís "History" (consisting of the first four books) appeared in 1517 by Badius Ascensius. This later 1555 edition contains ten books of Emiliís "History" on the rulers of France and covered events during the reign of Pharamond to Philip I. The second part bound in and separately titled was first printed by Vascosanc in an octavo edition in 1549, and reprinted as here. Le Ferronís is the continuation of Emiliís "History" covering the time through Henry II and until 1547. Le Ferronís supplement was praised in his lifetime as it was accepted as the first French history written by a national; it also later provided rich details of monarchs and courtesans living in Renaissance France. Both histories were very popular in the 16th century and were continued by various hands and translated into French, Italian, and German. Michel de Vascosan (d. 1577) was the son-in-law of Badius Ascensius; he had a successful typographic career in Paris in the mid to late 16th century. Vascosanís works are synonymous with elegant French printing in the early modern era.
