First edition

Abraham Nicolas AMELOT DE LA HOUSSAYE Histoire du gouvernement de Venise, avec le supplément; et l'examen de la liberté originaire de Venise

Abraham Nicolas AMELOT DE LA HOUSSAYE

Histoire du gouvernement de Venise, avec le supplément; et l'examen de la liberté originaire de Venise

Chez Frederic Leonard, à Paris 1677, Fort in-12 (7,5x13,8cm), (26) 550pp; (2) ; 237pp; (3) ; (12) 211pp. (39), relié.


Edition partly original, rare, much preferable to the original 1676 which contains only the first part; it is thereby significantly increased by major parts. A frontispiece representing the Piazza San Marco in Venice. The 1677 edition contains 3 titles for each section plus an added title summarizing the whole; it is easy to perceive that we find very rarely found these three parts in libraries (see Oxford, Leeds ...) and they most often appear separately. No doubt there hath several editions that date from 1677, of which only the latter contains three parts. Also this year the sphere would suggest that it was printed elsewhere; the third part deals Ratisbone as place of publication and publisher for Jean Aubry. This part contains the Rant Louis Helian, Ambassador of France under Louis XII.
Binding in Full Calf glossy brown time. Back to mute nerves decorated with cold wheels on the caps and nerves. Cold nets on the dishes. Good copy.
More than a history of Venice, this is a critical study of its institutions and its laws. The book was not well received in Venice where it is burned, diplomatic relations with France soured (Amelot de la Houssaye was secretary of embassy in Venice), and the King of France was more or less forced to deliver the author Bastille (six days) to satisfy Venice. The additional studies and storytelling disputes What would the Republic with Pope Paul V. The third part of the book is a translation of a book of Fra Paolo. The Rant Louis Hélian was pronounced in 1510 before the Emperor Maximilian, she very harshly accuses the Republic of Venice many ailments.
