Item Description: heirs of Pierre de la Rovière, Geneva, 1630. Folio, five volumes bound in four, contemporary full vellum; with contemporary annotations to front blank of first volume. Early edition of the influential, and highly controversial, history of Europe by French luminary Jacques Auguste de Thou (1553-1617).A successful lawyer and career diplomat, de Thou remained devoted to the cultivation of the mind throughout his prolific political career. He amassed an impressive personal book collection and in 1593 was appointed director of the Royal Library. Access to such abundant printed and manuscript material, selected with characteristic diligence, allowed de Thou to write a foundational history of Europe spanning the years 1544 to 1607.De Thou was horrified by the unhappy history of religious intolerance and violence that plagued his lifetime, and his history reflects this (especially the treatment of the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre of 1572). The sections relating to the massacre were deemed too critical of the Holy See, and were accordingly placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1609.This is an early printing (the first edition of the first 18 books was published in Paris 1604), and is complete in 138 books here bound in four stately volumes. De Thou, a classicist by training, wrote in Latin during an era of vernacular scholarship and forbade translation of his opus. Numerous editions, in several European languages, appeared throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.This Geneva edition includes a detailed life of the author appended to the final volume. Modest intermittent browning. A very good set. Bookseller Inventory # 2907414

Item Description: Michaelis Vascosani 1558 - 1560, Parigi, 1558. Volume in folio legato in pelle, piatti inquadrati da filetto in oro, fleuron centrale impresso in oro, titolo al tassello al dorso (professionalmente restaurato), sguardie, frontespizio del primo tomo (scritta a pennino), tre carte non numerate, 236 carte numerate, 18 carte col panegirico di Benedetto Varchi e gli indici, 349 carte numerate comprensive del frontespizio del secondo tomo, bianca, 17 carte d'indici. I difetti: l'angolo esterno inferiore presenta tracce d'umidità che hanno in qualche foglio reso fragile la carta, tracce di tarlo insistenti sempre nel margine inferiore quasi sempre all'angolo esterno, ben lontane dal testo, traccia (molto chiara) di gora nel secondo tomo, leggermente più marcata in alcune carte. Testo completo e collazionato, stampato su carta forte e nerbata. Il Giovio dedicò a questo capodopera 30 anni di lavoro. Esso riporta gli avvenimenti accaduti negli gli anni dal 1494 al 1547 ed occupa un posto notevole nella storiografia del Rinascimento. Copia in ancor buone condizioni, di grandissima qualità, terza eccellente edizione. Margini ampi, bell'impaginazione. Peccato i difetti (più d'immagine che sostanziali). Importante e raro.

Item Description: Paris, M. Vascosani, 1553/1554. 4 Bl., 236 num. Bl., 18 Bl. u. 349 num. Bl., 1 Bl. weiß, 16 Bl. (letztes weiß). Neue Hldrbde auf 5 Bünden mit Rückenschild. Folio. (hintere Hälfte von Bd 1 wasserrandig und wellig, sonst schwach braunfleckig, Bl. 238 - 248 in Bd 2 mit Beschädigung im unteren weißen Rand außerhalb des Textes). Frühe Ausgabe dieses Geschichtswerkes (zuerst Florenz 1551-52). - Jovius war der erste große Reporter und Interviewer und begründete damit innerhalb der humanistischen Geschichtsschreibung einen ganz neuen, 'journalistischen' Ansatz. Unermüdlich reiste er den aktuellen Ereignissen hinterher, nahm die Orte des Geschehens in Augenschein und befragte die wichtigsten Teilnehmer. Seine Geschichte ist so für den dargestellten Zeitraum unentbehrlich. Er schrieb auch auf eigene Rechnung. Und das bedeutete, daß er sich von den handelnden Personen seiner Geschichte für eine wohlgefällige Darstellung durchaus bezahlen ließ. Diese Bestechlichkeit markiert jedoch nur die beginnende Emanzipation der Historiographie, standen doch die Geschichtsschreiber vor Jovius unmittelbar im Dienste der Fürsten und Republiken. Die Geschichte der Zeit von 1494 - 1547 weist zwei größere Lücken auf. Die Bücher 19-24 (vom Tode Leos X. bis zum Sacco di Roma) wurden nie geschrieben. Auch die Bücher 5-10 (vom Tode Karls VIII. bis zur Wahl Leos X.), die angeblich beim Sacco di Roma verloren gingen und nur in einem von Jovius selbst verfaßten Auszug überliefert sind, hat er vermutlich nie geschrieben. Für Jovius mochte die Vorstellung "keineswegs unangenehm sein, wenn sein Werk gleich dem des Livius nur fragmentarisch erhalten blieb" (Fueter 51). - Adams G 650 u. 652. - Exemplar mit einem von 1561 datierten handschriftlichen Besitzvermerk des Grafen Schweickard v. Helfenstein, Freiherr v. Gundelfingen. Nach dem Absterben dieses alten schwäbischen Geschlechts ging die Erbfolge teilweise an das Haus Fürstenberg. Bookseller Inventory # 621006

Historiarum sui temporis, ab anno domini 1543: THOU, Jacques-Auguste de

Item Description: Apud Heredes Petri de la Roviere, Ginebra, 1626. Materia: Obra del siglo XVII de gran prestigio y fama. La Historia Universal que Thou comenzó en 1593 fue concebida sobre el rigor que ofrecía la metódica investigación. Es uno de los primeros intentos de parcialidad histórica, que se refleja en el tratamiento de los enfrentamientos religiosos. Esto llevó a enviar el original a Ginebra para su impresión y evitar la censura eclesiástica. Hasta el siglo de las luces, la obra fue un modelo de historiografía, siendo alabada por los grandes filósofos del momento como Voltaire, Lessing o Herder. Destacado e interesante es el relato histórico concerniente a América. Publicación: Ginebra, Apud Heredes Petri de la Roviere, 1626. Descripción: Folio. 350 x 230 mm. 5 tomos en 4 volúmenes V.1: [48], 810 p., [1] h. b., [52], [3] h. b. V.2; [2] h. b., 992 p., [14] p, [2] h. b.; V.3 : [3] h. b. 480 p., [80] p. [2] h. b.; V. 4: [2] h. b. 1302 p., [226]p., 106 p., [4] h. b.; Capitulares historiadas. Bella encuadernación en plena piel de época, lomo con nervios, decoraciones en dorado, guardas decoradas en agua, cortes en rojo. Filetes en plano y contraplano. Texto en latín. Estado de conservación: Papel con ligeros puntos de oxidación metaloférrica propios de la época. Amplios márgenes. Lomos deteriorados. Tapa del vol. 5 suelta. Buen conjunto. Notas: Jacques-Auguste de Thou fue uno de los grandes historiadores de su época. Hombre de Estado y bibliófilo fue reconocido por su búsqueda de imparcialidad y objetividad histórica que plasmaría en sus obras. Bookseller Inventory # L2258
