About this Item

A translation of the author's Primera part de la Hist?ria de Val?ncia, the first edition of which appeared in 1538, written in the Valencian dialect of Catalan. Beuter (ca. 1490?1554), of German origin, was born in Valencia, educated at the university there, and had a successful career as a historian, university professor, and preacher. The work at hand was a widely read and respected history of the founding and history of Valencia, and Spain, through the 11th century, with the last chapters having much to say about => El Cid. The translation is the work of Alfonso de Ulloa, who translated a number of important Spanish texts into Italian. Gabriel Giolito, the most prolific printer in Italy during the 16th century, printed about 850 books from the date of founding his press in 1539 to his death in 1578; he exercised great influence on his contemporaries and successors in the form and decoration of books. This work is printed in his italic type, has a woodcut printer's device on title-page and a different one on the verso of final leaf, woodcut head- and tail-pieces, and decorative and historiated woodcut initials. The preliminary matter contains => a double-page woodcut map of Spain. A curious aspect of the text is the claim that Spaniards fleeing the Moorish invasion settled in America in the Yucatan! => What a fable! Provenance: 17th-century private ownership stamp on title of a heart surrounding the letters COP; late 20th- and early 21st-century bookplate of Kenneth Rapoport. Small 8vo (15.5 cm; 6.125"). [38] ff., 533, [3] pp., map. EDIT 16 CNCE 5679; Index Aureliensis 118418; Palau 28828; Alden & Landis 556/6;Toda y Guell 686. Contemporary limp vellum, evidence of lost ties. Tear in rear joint (outside), unidentified monogram stamp on title-page, light dampstaining in lower inner corner of early leaves. A complete copy with the sometimes missing map.
