About this Item

Cronica cronica[rum] abbrege et mis p[ar] figures desce[n]tes et rondeaulx . . . 3 parts in 1, 4to. lvi, xxx, xxii, [1]ff. Separate title-leaves for each part with woodcut borders; woodcut border for the second part includes the initials "FR" (for François Regnault) and the date 1529. Woodcut text illustrations and initials. Paris: F. Regnault & J. Bonhomme, [1532]. 255 x 185 mm. 18th century mottled calf, gilt spine, hinges cracking, light edgewear, corners and top extremity a bit bumped. Repairs to title-leaf of part 1 and first 3 leaves of part 3, faint marginal dampstain on a few leaves, but very good. Signature of historian Étienne Baluze [Stephanus Baluzius] (1630-1718) on the title of the first part; woodcut armorial bookplate of Marguerite de Blottefière, Marquise de Sauzay (fl. mid-18th cent.); bookplate of writer and historian Guy Bechtel (b. 1931). First Edition in Book Form of this "chronicle of chronicles" relating the history of the world from Genesis to the time of publication, in the manner of Schedel's Nuremberg Chronicle but focusing on France, England and the Brabant (a region now part of modern-day Belgium and Holland). The Cronica cronicarum was famously first published in 1521 on 32 leaves that could be assembled either as a scroll (measuring 11 meters long) or in codex form; this edition is also famous for containing the first reality-based printed image of the city of Paris, as opposed to the imaginary views of the city contained in the Nuremberg Chronicle. This important woodcut is reprinted in the 1532 edition, together with nearly 100 additional woodcuts including city views of London, Rome, Trier and Troy; portraits of Henry VIII, François I, Emperor Charles V and other rulers both secular and ecclesiastical; personages and scenes from the Bible; coats of arms; and numerous "roundels" containing genealogical information. The 1532 edition is updated with information about historical events that occurred between 1521 and 1532. Adams C-1495. Bookseller Inventory # 44132
