Set a standard that has never been excelled".

Various notes on the pastedowns including a very cool contemporary one in French stating,"Today this book belongs to my lord Jacques du Faux, a cloth merchant."†A beautifully printed, wide-margined copy of an important and very rare book. *** The study of Thucydides was part of the Renaissance tradition of turning to Greek and Roman historians to solve the problems of modern politics. Italian humanist and priest, Lorenzo Valla, made the first known Latin translation of Thucydides in 1452. The editio princeps of Thucydides was printed by Aldus in 1502. Claude de Seyssel(1450-1520), the bishop of Marseilles and later Archbishop of Turin, was the first to put the History of the Peloponnesian War into a modern language using Valla s Latin edition. In the prologue, he states that this is one of the translations he has done for the use of King Louis XII, who had found in the Ancients useful lessons for a modern monarch. This book was printed by order of his successor, King Francis I, who was said to have carried it with him into war. The famed printer, Jodocus Badius, was contracted to produce 1225 copies on paper and a few on vellum. In the fifty years following this edition, Thucydides was translated and re-translated into several modern languages. The first English translation, based on this French edition, wouldn t appear until 1550 by Cambridge scholar Thomas Nicolls. Thomas Hobbes well-known translation from the Greek text would appear even later in 1629. No other copies of this book appear in sales records since the early 1950s. Scarce.***** One of the greatest ancient historians, Thucydides(c.460 B.C. c.400 B.C.) chronicled nearly 30 years of war and tension between Athens and Sparta. His History of the Peloponnesian War set a standard for scope, concision, and accuracy that makes it a defining text of the historical genre. Unlike his near-contemporary Herodotus(author of the other great ancient Greek work, The Histories), Thucydides topic was his own time. He relied on the testimony of eyewitnesses and his own experiences as a general during the war. Though specific in detail, the questions he addressed were timeless: What makes nations go to war? How can politics elevate or poison a society? What is the measure of a great leader or a great democracy? It took several generations for Thucydides to attain his now-unassailed place as one of the greatest historians of all time. Aristotle, who lived a few decades later and wrote about the same era, never mentions him. By the first century B.C. writers such as Cicero declared him as a great historian. Over the next centuries, numerous copies were made of the work, ensuring its survival past the dark ages. After the Renaissance, political philosophers from Thomas Hobbes to Friedrich Nietzsche extolled Thucydides clear vision and realist s grasp of politics and warfare. (A&E)*** In these difficult times, perhaps some inspiration can be gleaned from Pericles famed Funeral Oration for fallen Athenian soldiers(a speech which was possibly a model for Lincoln s Gettysburg Address). Our democracy can only survive if citizens of good will come together for the greater good of the nation. Tolerance, respect for our fellow citizens, and commitment to freedom can be the bulwark against annihilators of truth and fear mongers seeking to corrupt our institutions.***Please email us for better pricing.***.

First edition of one one of the greatest of classic historical works. Folio, bound in 19th century full vellum, morocco spine label, marbled endpapers, title-page with elaboarate historiated woodcut border. In very good condition with light toning to the text. Rare and desirable in this condition. ‚ The standards and methods of Thucydides as a contemporary historian have never been bettered. He began work at the very start of the events he records, and the penetration and concentration which he devoted to his account of the ‚ Peloponnesian War‚ (the war between Athens and Sparta from 431 to 404 B.C.) were based on the conviction that it would prove the most important event in Greek history‚ ¶ He saw his history as a source of profit to ‚ those who desire an exact knowledge of the past as a key to the future, which in all probability will resemble the past.‚ It was in this sense‚ ¶ that he called it‚ ¶ ‚ a possession forever.‚ This is exactly what it has become‚ (PMM 102).
