A thorough history of the world during the period of 1545 to 1584, written by Jacques Auguste de Thou.

Later, he was appointed conseiller d'etat, and served Henry III and Henry IV faithfully. Bookplate to the front pastedowns. The bookplate is likely from the Cowper/Cooper family, being from the Earl Cowper line. The 1st Earl Cowper was the first Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain. Condition: In a full calf binding.

About this Item: Francofurt : Kopff & Oster; Excudebatur typis Egenolphi Emmelij, impensis Petri Kopffij and Balthasaris Ostern, 1625. Hardcover. Condition: Fair. 2nd. 2nd ed. 4 volume set. Folios. Bound in contemporary full vellum. Decorated in blind. One cover detached, some of the joints spit. Library stamps. Text printed in double columns. Browning to pages. Jacques Auguste de Thou (1553-1617) was a French historian lawyer, diplomat, and statesmen. He was also significantly, director of the Royal Library, a position that gave him a wealth of sources to work with and had an immense personal library of 9000 works. He served in the regimes of Henry III and Henry IV and replaced Sully as conseil de finances during the Medici regency (a demotion from his previous post of President of the Parlement). Thou helped negotiate the Edict of Nantes, which gave toleration to French Protestants. Thou's work is notable in his attempts to present an unbiased and scientific approach to contemporary European affairs, many of which he lived through. His work is divided into 138 books, which provide a first hand accounting of the French Wars of Religion (including the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre). Part one of his history covers recent history to 1560, (first published in 1604). The second through fifth parts of Thou's work concerns more recent history, 1560-1572, to 1574, to 1584, and finally to 1607. The first complete edition was published in 1620. His Historiarum was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum, and banned by Catholic authorities in 1609 for his unflattering portrayal of Catholic authorities. Brunet V, 841 (citing 1620 ed). This is an oversized or heavy book, which requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. Seller Inventory # 1905190037

About this Item: Basel, (P. Perna für H. Petri), 1567. 2 Bde. 24 Bll., 1046 S., 1 Bl.; 97 (recte 971) S., 65 Bll. Zweite lateinische Ausgabe der berühmten "Della istoria d`Italia libri XX", die erstmals 1561 auf Italienisch erschienen waren. - VD 16 G 4042. Adams G 1523. STC 376. - "`Die Grundlage aller späteren Werke über die Anfänge der neueren Geschichte`, so nannte Ranke die `Geschichte Italiens`, als eine `Kritik` den Ruf dieses Werkes als Originalquelle, dessen es sich dreihundert Jahre lang erfreut hatte, zerstörte. Zugleich legte Ranke scharfsinnig die Gründe dar für den unmittelbaren gewaltigen Einfluß des Buches auf die Staatsmänner wie Geschichtsschreiber vom 16. bis zum 18. Jharhundert. Denn Guicardini schrieb die erste Geschichte des gesamten Italien, eingebettet in den größeren Zusammenhang des europäischen Staatsgefüges, und zeigte damit die gleichzeitige und wechselseitige Abhängigkeit politischer Verträge überall auf dem europäischen Kontinent auf. Sein Interesse galt weniger den Tatsachen selbst als vielmehr ihren Ursache und Wirkungen. (Carter/Muir 180 f.). - Die lateinische Erstausgabe, ein Jahr zuvor bei Petri in Basel erschienen, enthält bereits alle 20 Bücher, also einschließlich der letzten vier, die bei Guicciardinis Tod 1540 nur im Manuskript vorlagen. Diese wurden zunächst als Nachtrag publiziert. Die Gesamtausgaben aller zwanzig Bücher sind aus Rücksicht auf die Kurie an einigen wenigen Stellen verstümmelt. - Vorsätze mit minimalen Einrissen des Spiegels und am Bug sowie kleiner Leimspur, Titel mit Besitzvermerk, gering fleckig und stellenw. leicht wasserrandig. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - Tel. +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1500 8°.

About this Item: 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 in five volumes, bound here as 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. A little intermittent browning; light worm damage to a couple of endpapers; a very good set.

About this Item: 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.
