Tornaesium, 1569. - 1569 HUGE Biblia Sacra Latin BIBLE Tournes Estienne Salomon ART Illustrated An extremely rare, 16th-century Biblia Sacra published by Joannes Tornaesius in Lugduni. In 1554, first published an example of the Latin Bible based on those of Robert Stephanus (Estienne). This Bible was the very first and earliest which contains the illustrations of Bernard Salomon, which are now referred to as ‘le petit Bernard.’ This 1569 printing of the same Bible features the expected title page device which “represents a Sower with the legend ‘son art en Dieu.’” (D&M 6138). Both Jean Tornaesium (Jean de Tournes) and Bernard Salomon worked in Lyon (Lugduni), in the mid-16th-century producing emblem books containing the art of Salomon.

Rare second edition, in the original Latin, of the second part of Conrad Gesner's very popular book of secrets, this volume first published posthumously based on Gesner's notes and edited by his friend and pupil Hans Kaspar Wolf. The text of this volume is divided into four parts. It primarily concerns distillation and its use in making medicines, with most of the woodcuts illustrating furnaces, glassware and other equipment for distilling. It discusses the various kinds of distillation, the equipment and techniques, aqueous solutions, the making of medicines from a wide variety of plants, animals and minerals (including metal salts), extracting oils, etc.The first edition of 1569, in 8vo format, is often described as a rare book, but the present second edition in 16mo is even rarer. Although Gesner borrowed much of the information from earlier publications, his book proved very popular, going through numerous editions in the original Latin and in English, German, French and Italian translations.With the ca. 1650(?) woodcut armorial bookplate of the Avignon physician André Alexandre Normandeau. Somewhat browned and with a small brown spot affecting a couple words in one leaf, but otherwise in good condition. The parchment of the binding has broken where the sewing supports were laced through it and it has been reattached, and parts of the ties are lost.

Dorbon 4572. Houzeau & Lancaster 889. Wellcome I, 5956. Edwards, Encyclopedia of Philosophy: «Sextus extant works constitute the only lucid, and firsthand summary of Greek Skepticism available to us. They are usually divided into two works, the Outlines of Pyrrhonism (Hypotyposes) and the Against the Dogmatics (Adversus Mathematicos). The Hypotyposes... is divided into three books, the first of which defines the key terms of Skepticism, while the two others make use of these terms to attack dogmatism... The Adversus Mathematicos contains 11 books, 5 of which use the method defined and exemplified in the Hypotyposes in order to refute 'philosophers' (logicians, physicists, and ethicists), and six of which use the method to refute 'scientists' (grammarians, rethoricians, geometricians, arithmeticians, astronomers, and musicians)». First edition of the Adversus mathematicos, followed by the Pyrrhonian Hypotyposes which had already been published separately in 1562. Printer's devices on titles and end.

        Le antichità della città di Roma raccolte sotto brevità da diversi antichi & moderni scrittori.

      Varisco, 1569. In 8° (mm 145x105); carte (8), 202, con 38 silografie a piena pagina illustranti i più importanti monumenti romani. Tagli spruzzati di rosso. Piena pergamena semirigida moderna eseguita utilizzando del materiale antico; titolo manoscritto al dorso. Seconda edizione aumentata e corretta da Tommaso Porcacchi, autore del celeberrimo isolario edito nel 1572. Interessantissima guida archeologica di Roma, che illustra, anche visivamente, le più interessanti antichità romane nello stato in cui versavano a metà del Cinquecento. Si tratta della "guida" di Roma per antonomasia, infatti fu utilizzata da tutti i turisti che durante il Rinascimento visitavano l'Urbe. Organizzata secondo canoni moderni, la prima parte, intitolata "del luogo dove fu edificata Roma, et del vario acrescimento d'essa incominciando da Romulo" illustra i siti e i monumenti più antichi; le altre tre parti, descrivono la città e le sue vestigia più antiche suddividendola geograficamente; l'ultima sezione prende in considerazione anche i monumenti "moderni" del Vaticano. Bernardo Gamucci fu un archeologo originario di San Gimignano, attivo nella seconda metà del secolo XVI. Ebbe anche interessi di natura antiquaria, architettonia e matematica. L'unica sua opera nota è questa guida della città di Roma. Buon esemplare, con nota manoscritta abrasa al frontespizio; alcuni leggeri e saltuari aloni di umidità soprattutto nella parte finale. Adams G 204; BM STC It. p. 290; Schudt, Le Guida di Roma, 712. Non presente in Mortimer Fowler e Berlin Cat.

Importanti opere del celebre giureconsulto tolosano Jacques Cujas (1522-1590), massimo esegeta della giurisprudenza culta che mirava al superamento della tradizione italiana del commentario ed allo spostamento in Francia dell'asse portante della scienza giuridica europea. Cujas insegnò a Tolosa, Cahors, Bourges, Valenza e Torino; fu maestro di straordinari giuristi ed intellettuali del tempo, fra cui Scaligero, Loisel e Pithou. Questi commentari, nell'ambito delle pubblicazioni di tutte le opere cuiaciane stampate a Colonia alla fine degli anni ottanta del Cinquecento, rappresentano uno straordinario exemplum d'esegesi analitica e critica del testo.

Stupendi marchi tipografici a frontespizi e colophon, decine di graziosi capilettera xilografici.

Abile intervento di restauro conservativo alle legature, lievi aloni sparsi e qualche carta arrossata, sporadici segni di tarlo perlopiù limitati al margine esterno. Esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Marco Antonio Natta (?-1568), celebre giureconsulto nativo di Asti, fu magistrato di gran fama a Genova e autore di numerosi ed autorevoli consilia legati alla sua esperienza di praticus. Così la voce N. a proposito della sua attività di giurista consulente (Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, vol. 78, voce curata da Alberto Lupano): "I quali [consilia] rimasero citati a lungo non solo in ambito subalpino ma tra i giuristi di tutta Europa. L'opera di Natta, insieme con quella di Aimone Cravetta, rappresentò infatti un riferimento alla dottrina di diritto comune di origine piemontese anche per Ugo Grozio che, nel De iure belli ac pacis, ne colse il profondo valore equitativo [...]. I sostanziosi responsi, in prevalenza composti su richiesta di committenti locali, astigiani, monferrini, genovesi e mantovani, sono costruiti sulla base della communis opinio, però esprimono uno stile caratteristico che evita elucubrazioni troppo complicate, mirando unicamente a raggiungere l'obiettivo, e produce un risultato espressivo limpido, asciutto e incisivo, raro nella letteratura consiliare". Edizione non comune completa in tre volumi (per un totale di 642 consilia); nelle edizioni successive fu aggiunto un quarto tomo. Cfr. Sapori, 2075; Iccu..

A systematic work, it emphasizes the separation of procedural and substantive matters and also cites cases as sources of at least intellectual, if not formal, authority. The principles formulated in this work and its use of precedents determined the development of English law and established the method adopted by Littleton and Coke.

      Ex officina Marci de Maria Salernitani, 1569. In-4° antico (207x143mm), pp. (16), 461, (3), legatura dell'inizio del '700 in piena pergamena rigida (rimontata) con titolo in oro su tassello in pelle granata al dorso. Impresa editoriale al frontespizio (ripetuta al verso dell'ultima carta) con un angelo con gigli nella mano sinistra entro cornice figurata con motto:" Hi sunt administratorii spiritus - Humilis sicut lilium germinabit.". Dedicatoria dell'autore al cardinale Girolamo Seripando. Indice preliminare. Alcune note manoscritte del tempo al margine. Una firma antica. Ex-libris nobiliare ottocentesco Luigi Antonio Imperiale Lercaro. Sparsi aloni, insignificante foro di tarlo marginale ad alcune cc., nel complesso più che discreto esemplare. Seconda edizione di questo trattato rinascimentale sulla profilassi e la cura delle febbri. L'ultima parte è dedicata alla peste. L'Altomare (Napoli, 1506 ca.-ivi, 1566), medico nella propria città, seguace della scuola classicistica ispirata alle dottrine di Ippocrate e Galeno, godette della protezione di papa Paolo IV e pubblicò anche un altro trattato, più volte ristampato, di medicina generale. Egli fu altresì l'autore di una curiosa monografia sulla manna che gli valse l'accusa di plagio da parte di Annibale Briganti. "Fu insegnante nello Studio di Napoli, dove formò una combattiva schiera di discepoli e sostenne vivaci polemiche soprattutto contro i paracelsiani. A contatto con i migliori ingegni napoletani del suo tempo, dal Tansillo ai Della Porta, l'A. fu stimato uomo virtuoso e di acuta intelligenza speculativa e raggiunse tale fama da essere ancora ricordato da T. Boccalini in un elenco di medici famosi di tutti i tempi accanto a Cornelio Celso, Ippocrate, Galeno, Fracastoro.. Spesso nei suoi scritti l'A. non fa che commentare, sfrondandole delle interpretazioni magiche e delle incrostazioni medievali e riportandole, con spirito umanistico, alla loro forma originaria, le opere classiche della medicina, greche e arabe, opponendosi contemporaneamente sia al magismo di alcuni ambienti medici del tempo sia, anche, agli studi nuovi che si andavano svolgendo nel campo dell'anatomia e della fisiologia."

Abile intervento di restauro conservativo alle legature, lievi aloni sparsi e qualche carta arrossata, sporadici segni di tarlo perlopiù limitati al margine esterno. Esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Marco Antonio Natta (?-1568), celebre giureconsulto nativo di Asti, fu magistrato di gran fama a Genova e autore di numerosi ed autorevoli consilia legati alla sua esperienza di praticus. Così la voce N. a proposito della sua attività di giurista consulente (Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, vol. 78, voce curata da Alberto Lupano): "I quali [consilia] rimasero citati a lungo non solo in ambito subalpino ma tra i giuristi di tutta Europa. L'opera di Natta, insieme con quella di Aimone Cravetta, rappresentò infatti un riferimento alla dottrina di diritto comune di origine piemontese anche per Ugo Grozio che, nel De iure belli ac pacis, ne colse il profondo valore equitativo [.]. I sostanziosi responsi, in prevalenza composti su richiesta di committenti locali, astigiani, monferrini, genovesi e mantovani, sono costruiti sulla base della communis opinio, però esprimono uno stile caratteristico che evita elucubrazioni troppo complicate, mirando unicamente a raggiungere l'obiettivo, e produce un risultato espressivo limpido, asciutto e incisivo, raro nella letteratura consiliare". Edizione non comune completa in tre volumi (per un totale di 642 consilia); nelle edizioni successive fu aggiunto un quarto tomo. Cfr. Sapori, 2075; Iccu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Signature from the end of a document in Latin (James Douglas, c.1516-1581, Lord Chancellor of Scotland, 1563-1566 and 1567-1573, Regent for James VI 1572-1578, from 1553 4th Earl)

      1569 - with transcription and translation, "In witness whereof I [have put] my hand to these presents . to which also my seal is appended. In the presence of these witnesses . Archibald Douglas rector of Douglas, George Auchinlek . with divers others", vellum, 1 side 2"x5¼", Dalkeith, lacking the beginnings of the lines present Morton procured the murder of Rizzio, 'discovered' the casket letters and led the van at the battle of Langside against Mary's supporters. He was also implicated in Darnley's murder, for which he was finally charged and executed in 1581. The Archibald Douglas who witnessed this document was a cousin of Morton's wife, being a grandson of the 2nd Earl. (Morton was Earl in right of his wife). The old kirk at Douglas where he was rector is the burial place of the Douglases. He too was implicated in Rizzio's and Darnley's murder. By 1572 he had been installed, after great opposition, as parson of Glasgow (St. Mungo's, the cathedral). When Morton was apprehended in 1580, Douglas was forewarned and fled to England. A packed jury acquitted him of all treasons in 1586, and he was sent as ambassador to England, where he contributed to the condemnation of Queen Mary. Signed also 'Angius', i.e. 'of Angus', the 8th Earl, 1553-1588, another Archibald Douglas, Morton's nephew and ward, being the son of Morton's elder brother David, briefly 3rd Earl in 1555. The young earl attended St. Andrews, and carried the sword at James' first parliament in 1567. When his uncle was apprehended in December 1580 by his political enemies, he planned an English invasion to support him, but was detected and fled to England., where he got to know Sir Philip Sidney. He was later pardoned, and was lieutenant-general of Scotland in 1586. His neat signature is based on Italian models rather than a secretary hand. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Printer's device at last leaf verso. Bookplate of Count Thun-Hohenstein Tetschen on front flyleaf. A very fine copy with wide margins and in its original binding.RARE ORIGINAL EDITION of the definitive version of one of the most important Renaissance treatises on agriculture. First appeared in Brescia in 1564 under the title Le dieci giornate ('The ten days'), comprising only ten books, it was reprinted in Venice by N. Bevilacqua in 1566 in an edition augmented to thirteen books. In 1569 Percacino published separately books 14 to 20, before issuing the complete text in twenty books (or days) in the same year.The work is written in the form of a dialogue between two gentlemen from Brescia, Giovan Battista Avogadro, the owner of an estate in Borgo Poncarale (as the author), and Vincenzo Maggio, his guest. In book 11, dedicated to breeding and dairy farming, is introduced the character of Scaltrito, an expert 'Malghese' who buys hay for Avogadro. The 'Malghesi' were herdsmen of cattle, sheep and goats, who in summer time used to bring their herds up to the mountain pastures in the Alps. The detailed description that Scaltrito gives of the manufacture of matured cheese (a real compendium of dairy technique) corresponds precisely to the methods used today to make Parmesan cheese.Agostino Gallo, undoubtedly the most important Italian agronomist of the sixteenth century, was born in Cadignano. His treaty mainly focuses on the agricultural region that he knew best, i.e. the plain of Brescia. He writes about the citrus and olive trees of the Riviera del Garda, as well as the local wines, to which are dedicated books 3 and 4 (cf. B. Scaglia, Presentazione, in: A. Gallo, "Le venti giornate dell'agricoltura e de' piaceri della villa", Brescia, 2003).The kind of agriculture that emerges from the Giornate is an intensive one. It is an agriculture which is transforming its tools and techniques to increase the production in order to meet the needs of a growing and more urbanized society (cf. A. Saltini, Storia delle scienze agrarie, Bologna, 1979, pp. 71-86).Edit 16, CNCE20249; Mortimer, I, 205 (1572 edition); V. Peroni, Biblioteca Bresciana, Brescia, 1818-'23, II, pp. 88-90; R.

Extremely rare Old Testament Apocrypha containing the testaments of the 12 sons of Jacob. This apocryphal piece was originally created around the second century by Jews who converted to Christianity.

        1569 "Bear" Bible; First Bible in Spanish

      THOMAS GUARINUS AND SAMUEL APIARIUS 1569 - 1569 BEAR BIBLE; First Complete Bible Printed in Spanish. Formerly owned by Oscar B. Cintas, Cuban Ambassador to the United States. LA BIBLIA, QUE ES, LOS SACROS LIBROS DEL VIEEIO Y NUEVO TESTAMENTO. TRASLADADA EN ESPAÑOL. [BASEL: THOMAS GUARINUS AND SAMUEL APIARIUS?], 1569. Title-page with woodcut printer's device of a bear cub raiding a beehive, one full-page woodcut plate and one woodcut text vignette, numerous woodcut initials. An extraordinary, complete copy. Clean and crisp. Full calf binding, gilt edges, hand marbled endpapers. La Biblia del Oso or the "Bear Bible," is the earliest edition of the complete Bible in Castilian Spanish. The translator was Cassisoro de Reina (ca. 1520–94) of Seville, who fled the Spanish Inquisition in 1557 and preached to Spanish Protestants in London, Antwerp, and Frankfurt-am-Main. The publisher and printer of his bible are not named within the book, but the copy Reina presented to the University of Basel in 1569 was inscribed with the name of the printer Thomas Guarinus and the printer's device is that which appeared in other books printed by the Apiarius family of Bern. Reina's "Bear bible" derives it nickname from the famous woodcut on the title, which shows a bear helping himself to honey from a hive. The bear was the emblem of Apiarius's native city state, Bern, and the bees are a reference to his family name. Other works printed by Apianus with this device also include the legend from Psalm 119: "how sweet are they words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!" Here one finds instead the Hebrew and Spanish versions of Isaiah 40:8, a passage dear to Martin Luther: "The word of our God shall stand forever." A remarkable example.

        Therapeutices universalis seu Medendi rationis libri septem

      [Genève], Jacques Derbilly [Jacobum Arbillium] 1569 - [Genève], Jacques Derbilly [Jacobum Arbillium], 1569. In-8 de 252 [ei 552] pages et 40 pages; veau fauve de l’époque, double filet d’encadrement sur les plats avec petits fers dorés centraux et en écoinçon ; dos avec nom de l'auteur et titre incisé sur un cartouche doré. Peu courante première édition séparée d’une partie de la Medicina de 1554. Fernel est un des meilleurs cliniciens du XVIe siècle et l'inventeur de la physiologie. Sa thérapeutique, avec sa physiologie et sa pathologie, est l'un de ses textes les plus importants et influents. Les therapeuthices universalis seront à nouveau publiés séparément à plusieurs reprises jusqu'à la fin du XVIe siècle notamment en 1574, 1577, 1581 et 1592. Pour une édition plus tardive de 1577, voir Heirs of Hippocrates 220.2 : "This is an uncommon posthumous edition of Fernel’s landmark work that served as a medical textbook for many decades. Fernel is generally considered to be the person who established physiology, pathology, and therapeutics as standard and discrete categories of medical inquiry. According to PMM [sic], “Both physiology and pathology had, of course, existed in rudimentary form before Fernel; but he was the pioneer who gave these subjects their names and established them as separate systems.” The second work in this volume is his treatise on therapeutics and treatments, including those for fevers, syphilis, and epilepsy Fernel was physician to Catherine de Medici, whose infertility he was credited with curing, and subsequently to Henri II, to his wife, and to his famous mistress, Diane de Poitiers. Fernel was an influential reformer during his lifetime, as he insisted that medical studies be based on clinical observation more than on ancient authorities. “His insistence that physicians should study the human body and not rely on tradition may well have inspired his pupil, Vesalius, to the latter’s great anatomical studies” (Heirs of Hippocrates)." Auréoles d'humidité angulaires et marginales, toutefois bel et rare exemplaire en élégante reliure d'époque avec une étonnant pièce de titre ciselée sur dorure.

        Trattato ... delle lodi e della coltivatione de gl'ulivi.

      Florence: Filippo Giunti e fratelli, 1569. First edition. One of the most erudite and accomplished intellectuals of the late Renaissance, Pietro Vettori (1499-1585) served as the house philologist for the Giunti publishing firm, and held the chair in Latin and Greek at the Florence Studio. A first-echelon classicist, he prepared several important editions of ancient texts, culminating in the standard Renaissance text of Aristotle's Poetics. While this essay on the cultivation and production of olives is profoundly informed by Vettori's classical scholarship, it is, as he says, a labor of love ("composto con amore"). Indeed, Vettori describes the olive tree in sensual terms, extolling its grace and beauty that invite caresses ("sua vaghezza e leggiadria merita d'essere accarezzata.") He approaches the subject from the perspective of a practical farmer who is also able to condense the advice of classical and modern literary sources such as Columella, Theophrastus, Cato, Varro, Sophocles, and Dante. The book opens with a sort of brief survey of the literature, followed by a long central section of practical instruction on the planting, cultivation, and harvesting of olive trees. The last section deals with production and use of olive oil. The present copy was owned by an Italian farmer of the sixteenth or seventeenth century who made notes in the margins and underlines in the text. This farmer ignored the literary history and even the section on oil production, but paid close attention to the middle section on planting and cultivation. The farmer's notes and comments provide interesting insight into contemporary interpretation of the text. An early owner, perhaps the farmer, removed the famous portrait of Vettori from the 1574 edition of the Trattato (the first edition was published without the portrait) and pasted it onto the blank page facing the title page. . Quarto (22 cm); [2], [8], 89 pages. Signatures X1, A-L4, M6. Woodcut portrait by Hugo de Bloote and Cornelius Cort from 1574 edition mounted before title page. Device on title, two woodcut historiated initials. Later (?) vellum. Scattered light foxing, mostly marginal. Occasional marginal notation in early hand.

        Aureum caelimundium, seu liber de caelo et mundo.

      1569?]. 1569 - Aurea descriptio mundialis. aedita annis ab octuagesima constitutione mundi, quinque millibus, & septingentis nonagintaseptem [5797], regnante eodem domino. folio (260 x 200mm). XXX, [4], XXX1-XLIIII, [2], Bologna device with motto 'libertas non bene pro toto venditur auro' on title-page, penultimate leaf with errata (recto) and 'peroratio', last leaf blank, 20 8-line woodcut initials, antique style calf-backed marbled boards, red morocco label. [Bologna? Extremely rare edition of the only published work of Battista Gargiaria listed by Censimento Edit 16. We can locate only one other copy outside Italy, that at the Bodleian Library, Oxford. The author is generally described as a Bolognese jurist who flourished in the second half of the sixteenth century, but this may be a confusion arising from the fact that G. B. Gargiaria published several works on the law in Bologne in the mid 17th century. On the title to this work he is described as 'most diligent master and investigator of heavenly, terrestrial and universal [mundanarum] matters'. The book is described as published in the year of the world 5797. In the preface addressed to all those desirous to learn of natural things the author indicates that he has been prevented from publishing the book by various external forces but that now a happy conjunction of time and matter has enabled him to print it. Gargiaria has compiled a digest of opinions (not one of them identified) on the physical nature of heaven and earth. The first section (ff. 2v-13v) discusses the 'entitas' of the heavens. There then follow (ff xiv-xxx plus [4] 'Opiniones de caelo multiformes et super quidditate eiusdem'. This consists of a large number of 3- or 4-line definitions, not one of them attributed to a name. He follows traditional Aristotelian distinctions so in the first part we have a wide range of views on the essence and ?quiddity? of the heavens. There then (ff. xxxi -xxxvr) follow the views of philosophers, astronomers and others on the heavens, and of the poets ( ff. xxxvv-xxxvir, taken from Ovid Metamorphoses). The two Jewish views of heaven follow (xxxviv-xxxviiv) and these are two whole chapters (1 and 10) from Ezekiel in the Vulgate version. The seven heavens envisaged by muslim writers are briefly described and the commentator Alphachi (Alfasi?) is specifically mentioned, only to be refuted. There then follow short citations of Jewish and Christian authorities (taken from the O.T. and the N.T.), and on ff. xliiv- xlivr various opinions on the division of heaven. F. xlivverso is blank, , the next leaf has errata and register, and on the final verso is the Perorartio which states that the author has brought his task to completion. Provenance: Early inscription on title-page inked out (Nicolai de Arenis?). Stamp on verso of final leaf, ?Ex libris Prof. Romuli Meli Romae? Romulo Meli (1852-1921) was a noted Italian geologist and palaeontologist.Title-page soiled with some paper repairs with two letters and a small piece of banner from the armorial device expertly replaced in manuscript, ff.

Title, "Tassa" leaf and lower corner of leaf L2 repaired, all with some loss, a few minor repaired tears in some other leaves. Very good copy apart from the repairs.Second edition of Monardes's treatise on the medical plants of the New World, first published in 1565. Both editions are rare in commerce. Monardes, a physician living in Seville, Spain, never traveled to America but was able to study a large number of New World plants due to Seville's control over the navigation and commerce operating between Spain and the Americas. He maintained a botanical garden in which he grew both native and exotic plants, and made scientific studies of the pharmacological properties of such New World species as tobacco, coca, sunflower, sarsaparilla, ipecacuanha, cinchona and sassafras. Monardes's Dos libros was "the first full treatise on these drugs, and for many years the most important study of the medicinal plants of Central America" (Mann, Modern Drug Use, p. 202). It was through Monardes's writings that the American materia medica began to be known, and his books were widely read and translated. The English version, translated by John Frampton, was published in 1569-71 under the title Joyfull Newes out of the Newe Founde Worlde. Dictionary of Scientific Biography.

Contemporary vellum.

      BMC STC German, p. 24; Brunet I, col. 219; VD16 A 2138. First edition of the German translation of the 16th book of Amadis de Gaule, a collection of popular chivalric novels, translated from a French adaptation of the original Spanish chivalric romance. Amadis de Gaule was modelled after characters from the King Arthur tradition, especially Lancelot, and also heavily influenced by the legend of Tristan and Iseult. Amadis became an exemplary knight: a good Christian who rescued people and fought monsters. The complete series consisted of 24 books, published at Frankfurt between 1569 and 1595. The first surviving Amadis de Gaule was published in 1508 at Saragossa in 4 volumes, edited and enlarged by Rodrigues de Montalvo, and became immensely popular, though the text probably dates back to the 14th century. The French adaptation of the text by Nicolas Herberay increased the work's popularity throughout Europe and inspired many sequels and similar texts. These works also gave impetus to works like Don Quixote, which mocked the chivalric genre.Reasonable copy. Foxed and slightly browned throughout, with a water stain in the upper margin of the first few leaves and a larger water stain on the last 100 pages. Binding damaged at the head and foot of the spine, revealing a manuscript fragment supporting the spine, front board stained.
