Item Description: DROZ, 2010. Couverture souple. Book Condition: Neuf. Edition originale. En publiant en 1560 ses Histoires prodigieuses, œuvre parmi les plus curieuses et les plus populaires de la Renaissance, Pierre Boaistuau fonde un genre qui, jusqu’à la fin du siècle, aura les faveurs du public : celui du livre illustré sur les monstres et prodiges. S’il prétend instruire et édifier, l’ouvrage cherche tout autant à divertir et à piquer la curiosité ; il traite des illusions de Satan aussi bien que des morts inouïes de puissants personnages, des pierres précieuses non moins que des inondations et des tremblements de terre, des monstres marins autant que des amours prodigieuses. On savait que Pierre Boaistuau en avait dédié une première version à la reine Elisabeth d’Angleterre : la récente découverte de ce manuscrit, somptueusement relié et enluminé, permet à Stephen Bamforth et à Jean Céard d’en donner l’édition critique depuis longtemps souhaitée. L’introduction analyse l’évolution du texte et de l’image ; une bibliographie recense toutes les éditions de l’œuvre, y compris ses continuations et ses traductions, jusqu’à la fin du seizième siècle. L’annotation identifie les sources, souvent dissimulées, de l’auteur et le montre au travail, soucieux qu’il fut de conquérir les lecteurs en leur dispensant les trésors de son érudition et les richesses de son savoir. 750g.

Upper- and fore-margin closely trimmed but without affecting text. Light waterstains in places, occasional very minor spotting. Contemporary ink annotations to few leaves. A handsome copy, quite clean and crisp internally. ---- Caillet II, 5186bis; not in Adams. The rare first complete edition of this work on demons, sea-monsters, serpents, monstrous births, comets, earthquakes and floods, amongst other unnatural and natural phenomena, with many of the bizarre creatures brought to life in the woodcuts. Only the first part is by Boaistuau, with part 2 by Claude de Tesserant parts 3 and 5 by François de Belleforest and part 4 (dated 1580) by R. Hoyer. The work includes 102 woodcuts by Jean Cousin within the text representing monsters and prodigies whose stories are told. The taste of the times for the marvelous and the strange has been expressed in numerous publications which attempted to describe and list the monsters of the World. This one, first published in 1560, enjoyed a great success throughout Europe, and gave Boaistuau the respect of the learned community. Visit our website for additional images and information.

Editio princeps. "Las Histoires prodigeuses, compiladas por Pierre Boaistuau. tuvieron un extraordinario éxito en Europa. En Francia, no cesó de imprimirse, y cada nueva edición ampliaba la anterior. Se tradujo inmediatamente al inglés y al holandés y tuvo una influencia definitiva en obras francesas posteriores, como en el tratado De monstres et prodiges de Abroise Paré. Mas que una obra de autor, es ésta una compilación de prodigios y monstruos que Pierre Boiastuau relata, concediendo a los materiales de diversa procedencia un hilo argumental o una mínima trama narrativa. Son pues, 'historias' en sentido recto, e inaugura la moda del relato de prodigios en el tardo Renacimiento. A la traducción inglesa. se le atribuye una extraordinaria difusión e influencia en la literatura isabelina". Esta edición original en francés se tradujo al castellano y se publicó en Medina del Campo: 1586. Bookseller Inventory # 11220
