Book Description: Antwerp: Jean Bellère, 1562. with woodcut printer’s device on title, and innumerable woodcuts in the text, final leaf with corroded ink blot with loss of text to the last 5 lines, rust spot in the outer margin of another leaf touching the initial letter of a side-note, pp. [xvi], 192, 8vo, contemporary calf with 3 panels blind ruled on the covers with connecting diagonals, central panels with gilt a snowflake at each corner and a prancing reindeer at the centre, seventeenth-century paper manuscript lettering piece on spine, and in the superior compartment a similar shelf number, traces of a later label at foot of spine, headcaps defective, an old repair to that at the head, a few abrasions to the lower cover, corners a little worn, one early seventeenth-century and one later ownership inscription of the Jesuit College of Còrdoba, with an ink stamp of the same provenance, an unsuccessful attempt having been made to bleach out part of the inscriptions, one or two early marginal annotations, printer’s waste endpapers (two bifolia from a 1548 Lyons printing of the works of Horace), good An attractive copy - in a suitably Nordically decorated binding - of the second Bellère edition of this abridgment, a first having appeared possibly in 1557 in 16mo. The relation between the present edition and Plantin’s of 1558 is unclear (the format is identical), but this is probably printed by Plantin, whose Dedication precedes the text. The famous Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus, first printed in Rome in 1555, is a patriotic work of folklore and history which long remained for the rest of Europe the authority on Swedish matters. This text on dark winters, violent currents and beasts of the sea and the like amazed the rest of Europe. It was translated into Italian (1565), German (1567), English (1658) and Dutch (1665), and not until 1909 into Swedish. Abridgments of the work appeared also at Antwerp (1558 and 1562), Paris (1561), Amsterdam (1586), Frankfort (1618) and Leiden (1652). It is still today a valuable repertory of much curious information in regard to Scandinavian customs and folklore. (Adams M144). Bookseller Inventory # 50178

Book Description: Petit in-8, veau brun, dos à nerfs, orné, motif et filet dorés sur les plats. An early abridgment of Olaus Magnus? monumental description of the Northern Peoples which was first printed in Rome in 1555 and immediately became the authority on Swedish and Nordic matters for the rest of Europe. Many of the woodcuts that made the popularity of the first edition and amazed the European audience for centuries are reproduced here, depicting curious Scandinavian social habits, wild beasts and unknown natural phenomena. This edition was instrumental in increasing the popularity and reach of Olaus Magnus? work, creating a standard that remains today an important repertory of ancient Scandinavian customs and folklore. Publiée pour la première fois à Rome en 1555, l??uvre monumentale d?Olaus Magnus sur les pays nordiques connut un succès commercial immédiat et demeura pendant plusieurs siècles l?ouvrage de référence sur la Scandinavie et la Suède. Cette deuxième édition, publiée à Anvers probablement vers 1558 ou 1562 joua un rôle instrumental dans la diffusion du travail de Magnus en donnant une place de choix aux coutumes scandinaves les plus étonnantes qui avaient fait le succès de l?ouvrage original. On y retrouve également les innombrables gravures sur bois qui avaient fascinées l?Europe lors de la première édition, représentant les bêtes sauvages les plus curieuses, ainsi que d?intrigants phénomènes naturels jusqu?alors inconnus.
