Book Description: Imprinted [by William Tylle], the xxv. day of Iuly in the yeare of oure Lorde God a thousande, fyue hundredde and fyftye., 1550. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Folio: 31.2 x 20 cm. Cvi, Cvi-Clxxix, Clxxix-CC.xxiii, [1] leaves. Collation: A-Z6, Aa-Oo6, Pp4. Lacking the privilege (leaf A2). With the final errata leaf present. 'Nicholls's translation of Thucydides was published in London on 25 July 1550 as The hystory writtone by Thucidides the Athenyan of the warre which was betweene the Peloponesians and the Athenyans; the printer has been identified as William Tylle. A royal privilege granted in February 1550 (the text of which was prefixed to the edition) protected the work from unauthorized publication for seven years so that Nicholls could continue in his intention to 'bring other profytable hystories out of frenche & latene into our sayd maternall language, to the generall benefyt, comodytie & profyt of all our louing Subiectes' (fol. 2r). With no knowledge of Greek, Nicholls based his work on the French translation by Claude de Seyssel published in Paris in 1527 which, according to Nicholls, was in turn based on the Latin translation of Laurentius Valla; Nicholls included a translation of Valla's preface in the 'Hystory'. Nicholls dedicated his translation to his former tutor, acknowledging his debt to Cheke's tuition. Cheke's own position as tutor to Edward VI meant that Nicholls's 'Hystory' was one of the books bought as a school book for the young king. Thucydides was not translated again until the philosopher Thomas Hobbes issued a new translation in 1629.(R.C.D. Bladwin, ODNB) The historical methods of Thucydides, who lived in the fifth century B.C., have never been bettered. His severe standard of historical truth, coupled with his passionate belief in the general significance of particular events, have given his history of the tragic war between Athens and Sparta a universal value to statesmen and historians alike.(Printing and the Mind of Man, 219) Antiquarian, Early Printing, History, Greek, Classics, Henry VIII, England, STC Bound in a contemporary London binding, tooled in blind and with ornamental rolls (Oldham HM.a.6 & MW.d.12). The binding is in fine condition aside from minor faults. The text block is backed with vellum manuscript waste from a gradual with musical notation. The text is printed in Black Letter. The title page is framed by an elaborate woodcut border incorporating the Tudor arms and the initials E.R. (Edward (VI) Rex). The top margin of the title has been cut away, just shaving the top of the border. The text is in excellent condition throughout with a bit of minor worming to the blank margins only in the first part. Lacking the privilege leaf, A2. Provenance: With the near contemporary signature of Henry Dingley, possibly Henry Dingley of Charlton, High Sheriff of Worcestershire under Mary I, mentioned in Fuller's Worthies. With the bookplate of Walter Bagot (probably the cleric and landowner, 1731-1806). Bookseller Inventory # 2129D

Book Description: Geneva Henri Estienne, 1588. The Historian of Athens THUCYDIDES. De Bello Peloponnesiaco libri VIII. Iidem Latine, ex interpretatione Laurentii Vallae, ab Henrico Stephano recognita. Geneva: Henri Estienne, 1588. Augmented second, and best, edition. Folio (13 x 8 1/8 inches). [20], 621, [15], 73, [7] pp. Greek and Latin text in parallel columns; Estienne device [Schreiber 10] on title page, ornamental initials and head-pieces. Eighteenth-century tree calf, expertly rebacked preserving original spine, gilt stamped spine compartments, newer morocco spine label. Armorial bookplate. Corners a bit bumped. Aside from some general toning and browning to edges, an excellent copy. The augmented second Estienne edition (first published in 1564) is generally considered the best and most important Renaissance edition of the greatest historian of Athens, and for that reason is included as a Printing and the Mind of Man entry [102]. Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War is an eye-witness account of the great conflict between Athens and Sparta (431-404 B.C.), in which Thucydides himself participated as a general. Besides being the first "modern" historical work in Western literature, Thucydides' great book also contains important medical and scientific observations: the eminent historian of science, George Sarton called Thucydides history "one of the greatest literary - and I would say, scientific- classics of the world. He explains his method at the beginning of his work and gives a brief account of the evolution of Greek society from the earliest times to his own day. His description of the 'plague' of Athens is classical. His description of the solar eclipse of Athens on August 3, 431, is the earliest detailed description of an eclipse' (Introduction to the History of Science I, p. 106). For this new edition, the great scholar-printer Henri Estienne (1531-1598) has corrected the Greek text and scholia and has further revised the Latin translation of Lorenzo Valla, which is now printed on the same page with the Greek text in parallel columns. "The standards and methods of Thucydides as a contemporary historian have never been bettered. Thucydides has been valued as he hoped; statesmen as well as historians, men of affairs as well as scholars, have read and profited by him" (PMM). Hoffmann III, 552. Printing and the Mind of Man 102.

Book Description: London: Printed by Andrew Clark for Charles Harper, 1676., 1676. Folio. 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 lab el. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 2072

Book Description: Jacques Chouet, Genève, 1600. In-4 de (12) pp. 1 f. blanc, 551 pp. (24) pp., vélin rigide à petits rabats (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale de la traduction française établie sur le texte grec par Louis de Jaussaud d'Uzès. Les versions françaises de l'Histoire de la guerre du Peloponèse étaient - depuis la traduction de Claude de Seyssel publiée en 1527, faites sur la version latine de Laurent Valla (Jacques Colin en 1559 traduisit partiellement le texte grec pour reprendre la version latine de Seyssel). Louis de Jaussaud (1580-1665), brillant helléniste et latiniste, publia cette nouvelle traduction à l'âge de 20 ans. Il fut l'un des membres les plus zélés de l'académie de Castres. Son ouvrage est dédié à Philippe de Canaie, sieur de Fresne, président de la Chambre Mepartie de Castres. Belle impression du genevois Jacques Chouet : d'abord libraire à Dijon, il fut reçu habitant de Genève en septembre 1572 et bourgeois de la ville le 15 juillet 1580. Il y exerça la librairie dès 1577. Jacques III et Pierre II Chouet lui succèdent en 1607 en qualité d' « héritiers de Jacques Chouet ». Bel exemplaire en reliure du temps. Edition inconnue de Brunet ; Arbour, L'Ere baroque en France (1585-1643) ; Repertoire chronologique des editions de textes litteraires, 3193 ; Michel Nicolas, Histoire littéraire de Nimes (1854), p. 295.

Book 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

Book Description: no place c, 1790. manuscript written primarily on rectos, in English with some Latin and Greek, in a clear cursive hand with occasional corrections, blanks at the end of each vol. (a few in vol. i, c.35 in vol. ii), on laid paper with a ‘Maid of Dort’ ‘Pro Patria’ watermark, countermarked ‘GR’ under a crown, ff. [155]; [57], 4to, contemporary marbled boards backed with vellum, spines lettered in ink, paper rubbed and faded, good An unpublished and learned abstract of Thucydides’ great historical work by an unknown English writer at the end of the eighteenth century. The manuscript is in an adult hand and the writer is has clearly mastered the ancient languages, regularly citing passages in Greek and occasionally Latin, and has also clearly read widely in the ancient authors, citing Herodotus, Homer, Strabo, and even the Thucydidean scholia with confidence. However, no mention is made of any contemporary scholarship or interpretation, the closest being a single note indicating that the writer has closely compared Valla’s Latin translation (of the mid-fifteenth century) with the original Greek and two mentions of contemporary (‘hodie’) place names: ‘Castellammare della Bruca’ (formerly Velia) and ‘The Patrimony of St Peter’ (containing ancient Caere). In the summary of Book III the writer gives a direct quotation of a section (III.21) rather than summarising, but this appears to be the writer’s own translation, since it matches neither Hobbes (1629), Smith (1753), or even Bloomfield (1829). Although he wrote in the 5th century BCE, Thucydides could be considered one of the most important historians of the eighteenth century. He had been mostly neglected through the Renaissance, despite Machiavelli’s parallels with his work, and it was Hobbes’ translation that began the restoration of his fortunes in the English-speaking world. Hobbes’ version was reprinted in 1723, to be followed by Smith’s, and Hume wrote in 1742 that ‘The first page of Thucydides is, in my opinion, the commencement of real history’. This unknown writer’s close attention to the text is further evidence of the value placed by eighteenth-century readers on his work. Bookseller Inventory # 48819

Book Description: 1555. translatée en langue françoise, par seu Messire Claude de Seysell. reueu & corrigée. Paris, Estienne Groulleau,One vol. bound in 2. 16mo (110 x 70mm. ) ff. 16], 555, [13]., last leaf blank, device on title-page, 19th- century French polished calf, triple gilt fillet on covers, spine with two labels and decorated in gilt, g.e. A pretty copy of this édition partagée (entirely printed in a small italic) of the infuential translation into French by Claude de Seyssel, based on the Latin version of Lorenzo Valla, and first published in 1527. Claude de Seyssel (d. 1520), from Savoy, was a jurist, humanist and theologian. He was an advisor to Louis XII, to whom he dedicated the translation, was later created Bishop of Marseille and later Archbishop of Turin. As Seysell worked from Valla's Latin translation (he also translated Valla's prologue), so Thomas Nicoll's first English edition of 1550 was made from de Seyssel's French version. The preliminaries include a sonnet by Clément Marot addressed 'aux lectuers'.This copy has an additional title-page in manuscript to volume II, written in a neat calligraphic hand, probably inserted when the volume was rebound.Adams T680 (imprint of Jehan Ruelle). Schweiger p. 239. Not in BMSTC (French). Only a handful of copies are located in European libraries as listed by KVK and only two locations are given on OCLC/RLIN (Universities of Maryland and Ohio).
