Item Description: Aldus, Venice, 1502. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good. BOOK HISTORY À LA GRECQUE EDITIO PRINCEPS, Folio, 124 unnumbered ll. AA8, AA-?O8 OP8. Greek letter, undecorated, guide letters, spaces blank. Contemporary 4-line Latin inscription signed "S.P" on pastedown, "15ff" (probably original price) in margin of t.p. and small inked symbols in title, a few tiny wormholes in early and final ll. Ink stain to extreme upper edge of early gatherings, very light waterstain to upper blank margin of a few final ll. A very good clean copy, well margined, on extra thick quality paper, in striking contemporary calf over boards originally a la Grecque, covers with triple ruled outer borders, inner ropework with fine roundels gilt at each corner and centre, surrounding panel of richly decorated blind lattice work with gilt roundel at each corner, double and triple ruled panels within enclosing panel with roof vault border, gilt roundel in each vault space and in the middle, two ropework wheels surrounding ropework multiple knots; spine, joints, and all corners worn, covers with some surface abrasions, head and tail of spine shaved to stand upright. A handsome and historic quality binding, probably Venetian. Editio princeps of the first and still most famous work in the Western historical tradition. Thucydides has been described as the father of ‘scientific history’ because of his strict standards of evidence gathering and analysis of events in terms of cause and effect. He has also been called the father of the school of political realism viewing relations between states as based more on might than right. His text is still studied in military colleges throughout the world. Thucydides also makes the interesting, if somewhat cynical, analysis of human nature in explaining human behaviour in the context of wars, plagues and all sorts of disasters. Viewed in the highest regard by subsequent Greek historians, then ignored throughout the Middle Ages, Thucydides had some influence on Machiavelli, but much more on Hobbes who translated him, and almost idolisation by Schiller, Schlegel, Nietzsche, Macauley and von Ranke. Woodrow Wilson read him on the way to the Versailles conference, and Thucydides’ influence was increasingly felt in international relations during the period of the cold war. The Peloponnesian War of which Thucydides wrote was an epic 27 year struggle for supremacy between Athens and Sparta and their respective allies. It probably continued after Thucycides’ death. Thucydides is par excellence the political historian, a meticulous recorder of public events, in which he had fought and from which he was never far removed. He assiduously researched written documents and personally interviewed eye-witnesses whose testimonies he wrote up into somewhat stylistic speeches. The first edition of the greatest work of one of the greatest historians in its original, unsophisticated state. This richly decorated contemporary binding was constructed à la Grecque probably in Venice, though the repeated use of gilt roundel motifs is more Neopolitan than Venetian. During the 16th century books began to be shelved vertically rather than horizontally and the head and spine of à la Grecque bindings became hopelessly impractical. At that point here they were cut down though the base of their structure remains. A remarkably concrete example of a seismic change in the history of libraries. BM STC IV p. 672. Ren 33:4 "Première et rare édition, avec deux vies de Thucydide, en grec: l’une d’un anonyme d’une page et demie, et l’autre, de cinq pages, d’un nommé Marcellinus". Brunet V 844 "Edition rare". Dibdin II p. 505 "The first edition of Thucydides is a beautiful book, though at present by no means rare: copies with a fine margin bear a tolerable price". Printing and the Mind of Man p. 62. Greek. Bookseller Inventory # L1470

Item Description: London Imprinted the XXV day of July in the Yeare of our Lorde God a Thousande fyve hundredde and fiftye [1550], 1550. First Edition of the First Translation of Thucydides into English. Printed in Black Letter. Title within a woodcut border and with a profusion of illustrated or historiated initials. Folio, near contemporary calf, the spine decorated in gilt with period tools within compartments and with a brown morocco label lettered in gilt. Now housed in a very fine morocco backed fold-over box. CCxxiii + Errata. A fine unpressed and unwashed copy, some old and early marginalia, some very occasional and very small chips to edges of a few leaves, the binding with some expert and highly sympathetic restoration to the back but preserving the original spine panel. THE FIRST ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THUCYDIDES. 'Thucydides stands alone among the men of his own age and has no superior of any age, in the width of mental grasp which could seize the general significance of particular events. The political education of mankind began in Greece, and in the time of Thucydides their political life was still young. Thucydides knew only the small city-commonwealthe on the one hand, and on the other the vast barbaric kingdom; and yet, as has been well said of him, "there is hardly a problem in the science of government which the statesman will not find, if not solved, at any rate handled, in the pages of this universal master."' In an address to the great Greek scholar "Mayster John Cheke," Niccolls asks him "not onelye with fououre to accepte this the furste my fruict in translatyon, but also conferringe it with the Greke, so to amende and correct it, in those places and sentences, whiche youre exacte lernynge and knolaige shall Iudge mete to be altered and refourmed, that thereby thys sayd translation may triumphantly resist and wythstande the malycyous and deadly stynge of the generall and most ennemyes of all good exercyse." This translation alone held the field until Thomas Hobbes published his in 1629, nearly a century later. Bookseller Inventory # 25760

Item Description: London William Tylle the xxv. day of Iuly in the yeare of oure Lorde God a thousande fyue hundredde and fyftye, 1550. Folio. Cvi, Cvi-Clxxix, Clxxix-CC.xxiii [1], leaves, title within cartouche border; title just a bit cropped at head, last leaf (errata) soiled, marginal restoration to gutter not affecting text. Modern red morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, all edges gilt, generally a clean handsome example. First Edition of the first translation of Thucydides into English. Prior to this edition, works by classical authors were only available in Greek, Latin, or occasionally French. Such was the importance of having translations of classical works in English that Thomas Nicholls was granted a royal privilege to publish further translations uncontested for seven years. Nicholls had no knowledge of Greek and so translated his work from an earlier French edition by Claude de Seysell which had in turn been translated from Latin. It was this translating via a tertiary source which led Thomas Hobbes to criticise Nicholls' work in his 1676 English translation, the first to be translated directly from Greek. "The standards and methods of Thucydides as a contemporary historian have never been bettered. He began work at the very start of the events he records, and the penetration and concentration which he devoted to his account of the Peloponnesian War (between Athens and Sparta from 431 to 404 BC) were based on the conviction that it would prove the most important event in Greek history" (PMM). Scarce in fine condition: the handful of copies we could trace at auction in the last 30 years were all incomplete or badly damaged. Bookseller Inventory # 93874

Item Description: Ashendene Press, Chelsea, 1930. 407 x 277 mm. (16 x 11"). 4 p.l., 363, [1] pp.Translated by Benjamin Jowett. ONE OF 260 COPIES on paper, 240 for sale (and 20 on vellum). Original white pigskin by W. H. Smith & Son (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), raised bands, gilt titling, edges untrimmed. In a substantial marbled slipcase (from the time of publication?) with pigskin edging to match the volume. With first initial of each chapter and opening line of each book designed by Graily Hewitt, printer's device in the colophon. Printed in red and black. Hornby 37; Franklin, p. 242. A few small scrapes on spine (as almost always), just a whisper of soiling to the white pigskin, one tiny closed tear at a fore edge, but AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, the essentially unworn binding much cleaner than we have a right to expect, and the text virtually pristine. This is an uncommonly fine copy of a grand edition of the definitive classical account of the war between Athens and Sparta. A meticulous researcher who visited battlefields and interviewed participants from both sides in the Peloponnesian War, Thucydides (ca. 460 - ca. 395 B.C.), the greatest of all Greek historians, was himself an Athenian general who fought in the conflict's first phases. Influenced by the medical writers of his day, he diagnoses with clinical detachment the ills of a corrupt society under the pressures of war and epidemic. He was also a great dramatist, and the tragic defeat in the harbor of Syracuse that signals the fall of Athens is written with a skill that equals the greatest Greek tragedians. A work of this magnitude deserves a stately edition, and that is what St. John Hornby has produced here. Sidney Cockerell praised the Ashendene "Thucydides" as "one of the greatest of the many accomplishments of [the] Press--a very fine page, the measure not too wide for so large a type and the side notes most beautiful and effective." The book is printed in Ptolemy type (a "perceptive choice" for the large page, according to Franklin) with shoulder notes in Blado italic; it marks the first time Hornby used a typeface for the side notes that was different from the text. Our translation is by Benjamin Jowett (1817-93), Regius Professor of Greek at Oxford and the Master of Balliol College, whose influence in shaping the course of university education was far reaching. His translations of Plato, Aristotle, and Thucydides were still in print at the end of the 20th century. This is an uncommonly fine copy of a grand edition of the definitive classical account of the war between Athens and Sparta. A meticulous researcher who visited battlefields and interviewed participants from both sides in the Peloponnesian War, Thucydides (ca. 460 - ca. 395 B.C.), the greatest of all Greek historians, was himself an Athenian general who fought in the conflict's first phases.

One of 260 copies printed on paper (an additional 20 copies were printed on vellum). Boards (see photographs) have some light scattered soil and small bruises, and a superficial but unsightly 8" diagonal line indented on rear board; otherwise, and with those faults, an outstanding copy with a virtually flawless interior. The design and production of this edition makes it one of the finest achievements of St John Hornby's Ashendene Press. It is at one and the same time opulent and modest, and there can surely be no more gratifying way to read Thucydides than in one of the rare copies of this edition. The translation by Jowett, who was master of Balliol and regius professor of Greek at Oxford is, of course, authoritative. Bookseller Inventory # 412

Item Description: Printed by Andrew Clark for Charles Harper, London, 1676. Full Leather. Book Condition: Good Plus. Third Edition. Pp. 23 p.l ., 357, [10] table. Added copper-engraved title, title in red and black, 3 folding engraved maps, 2 engraved plates. Contemporary marbled calf (in an unusual striped pattern), with a plain spine, raised bands, and a gilt morocco label. Minor worming to front board, short split to upper front joint, engraved title and title partially reinforced with tape at inner margin, archival tape repairs to two maps, faint marginal dampstaining to a few leaves, sporadic marginal worming, occasionally touching letterpress, but not affecting legibility; but overall an exceptionally clean, crisp copy in a handsome and well-preserved binding. The Third Edition (not the second, as stated) of Thomas Hobbes' (1588-1679) famous translation of Thucydides. The work was first published in a folio edition in London 1628, then in 1634 and 1676, likewise in folio, and later in 1723, in two volumes, octavo. Hobbes' History of the Grecian War was the author's first published work; it was also the first English translation of Thucydides made directly from a Greek manuscript and the first to include maps. "(It) has been always esteemed one of the best translations we have of any Greek author, and the Author himself took care of the maps and indices." (Brueggemann) "Bating his inaccuracy of detail (his Greek was not perfect, and the text was still in bad case) it is a masterpiece. Read him in the famous speeches. and Jowett seems a nerveless paraphrase." (Smith). Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War describes the struggle between Athens and Sparta, and their allies, during the years 431-404 B.C. It was an on-again-off-again affair in which Thucydides personally took part as the commander of an Athenian naval squadron. As the later historian tells us, the war was fought mainly because of Sparta's fear of Athenian imperial ambitions. The contest was finally decided in favour of Sparta when Cyrus of Persia threw his weight behind the Spartan cause. Thucydides' authoritative account, which remained unfinished at his death, is "one of the greatest historical works of all time, notable for its condensed, direct, and graphic style, for its fairness and scientific method, for the author's sense of the causal co nnexion between events, and for its reasoning on political questions." (Harvey, p. 429). Wing T-1134. Brueggemann, p. 123. Moss II, 699. Smith, Classics in Translation. p. 162. Size: Folio. Bookseller Inventory # 21454

Item Description: London: by B. Motte; for D. Brown; D. Midwinter; B. Lintott; W. Taylor; and W. and J. Innys and B. Cowse, 1723, 1723. 2 volumes, octavo (197 × 122 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, double gilt rules, red morocco labels to style. Some restoration to joints and extremities, pale dampstaining at beginning of vol. I, a good copy. With 2 engraved folding maps and 3 engraved plates, of which 2 are folding. Engraved bookplates of William Hanbury (1704-1768), of Kelmarsh, Northants, and his note of acquisition dated 25 Oct 1741. Hobbes's translation of Thucydides, taken (unlike the only existing English version at the time) directly from the Greek, was first published in 1629. "Forty years later, in Vita Carmine Expressa, he said that he had written it so that his contemporaries might learn from the fate of Athenian democracy how much wiser one man is than the mass of men" (Macdonald & Hargreaves). The bibliography calls for a frontispiece portrait of Hobbes, but none was apparently ever inserted in this copy, nor does ESTC call for one. Macdonald & Hargreaves 5. Bookseller Inventory # 68378

Item Description: R. & J. Wetstenios & Gul. Smith, Amsterdam, 1731. Full Leather. Book Condition: Very Good +. full leather, ex libris a charitable organization and beautifully rebound by them with its insignia in blind gilt on front cover - no library markings; two foliated borders blind in gilt; one foliated border in blind. Spine titles gilt; 5 raised bands, with finely detailed gilt compartment decorations. pp. (34) [2, map] 1-728, [1]-123; all edges gilt. Title page in two colours; text dual columns, Greek and Latin. Engraved vignette on title page, full page engraved frontispiece of the siege of Syracuse; two maps, both double page, as noted above and ff. p. 376, these being of Ancient Greece and of Sicily; decorative initials, head and tail-pieces. Some rubbing to the cover; edgewear, especially at tail and head of spine, the latter with minor loss of leather; minor foxing to prelims and end-papers, else remarkably clean and bright. This edition of the complete eight books of Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War is a superb example of Dutch printing of the early 18th century. Its historical significance cannot be overstated. M. C. Howatson, editing the 2nd edition of Oxford's Companion to Classical Literature, notes: "Thucydides displayed a passion for accuracy and exactness that no other ancient historian approached and which was probably a product of his own individuality as much as the result of influence from contemporary scientific writers. Moreover, he saw history as explicable entirely in human terms without recourse to the supernatural; omens and oracles earned his contemptuous dismissal. He reported what he observed, and did not ponder what part if any the gods played in it." (p. 570) A very heavy book that will require significant postage: our policy will require shipping only with tracking and insurance. Size: Folio. Bookseller Inventory # 004180

Dibdin also reports that 'the famous Wasse had prepared a variety of materials for this work, by a careful revision of all the preceding editions: but he dying, Duker was prevailed upon to complete it' - this is a frequently-told story about editions with multiple editors, but in fact Wasse only died in 1738.
