About this Item

First Edition in English and the ONLY edition of the only translation into English. With a woodcut architectural titlepage, handsome engraved head and tail pieces and a number of large woodcut initials throughout. Large, thick folio, contemporary full brown calf, spine with raised bands double ruled in blind, one compartment lettered in gilt. With the provenance of Thomas Agnew of Lochman; Baronet, with engraved bookplate. [6], 1380, [27] pp. Sound and sturdy copy of this scarce work, the binding with evidence of some age apparent at the edges and spine, with some old restoration to the head cap, inner joints strengthened, not unexpectedly due to the weight of the massive textblock, front free-fly renewed, title page with some old staining and mounted with some loss at the margins, that on the inner lower corner affecting a bit of the engraved border, otherwise internally fresh, clean and very well preserved. SCARCE FIRST AND ONLY EDITION IN ENGLISH OF MAYERNE TURQUET’S MONUMENTAL HISTORY OF SPAIN, highly influential to virtually all later Spanish Histories. Louis Mayerne Turquet was a French Protestant historian and the work was first published in Lyons in 1586. It is monumental in both size and scope. Gimeston[e], a noted translator and historian in his own right worked with Eld and Islip on a number of occasions. For this publication, the only in English, he wrote a continuation of the history from 1583 to 1612 drawn from a number of contemporary sources. A side note of interest, Mayerne Turquet is credited with coining the term "Political Economy". Bookseller Inventory # 21334
