About this Item

Lucan's Pharsalia in the French verse translation done by Georges de Br?beuf, here in an uncommon and relatively early edition. Br?beuf's version was originally published in 1654, with several editions (including one Elzevir) following over the next few years, and one additional Paris printing by Loyson appearing in the same year as this example, which is acknowledged in the statement of privilege. The => 10 full-page engravings present in this nicely printed volume include a frontispiece displaying a bust of Lucan (a native of Cordoba, Spain) surrounded by Roman motifs, an additional engraved title-page bearing a martial scene, and ? among other war images done by various hands ? a striking rendition of Cato and the snakes. 12mo (15 cm, 5.9"). Frontis., [12] ff., 390 pp. (lacking final blank); illus. Schweiger, II, 568 (citing the 1666 Pierre Ribou and the Loyson eds.) Contemporary mottled calf, board edges gilt-stamped, spine gilt extra, with raised bands and a gilt-stamped leather title label; moderately worn, leather cracking over joints, edges rubbed with corners bumped, spine with small chip to head exposing headband and with small paper label at foot. All page edges speckled in red and brown. Lacking final blank (only). Front pastedown with bookplate dated 1969. Pages clean; slight offsetting from a few illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # 7052
