P. H. MALLET & DANEMARK Histoire de Dannemarc


Histoire de Dannemarc

Chez Barde, Manget & Compagnie & Chez Buisson, A Genève & à Paris 1787, 9 tomes en 9 Vol. in-12 (10,5x17,5cm), XXIV, 360pp. et 333pp. (1) et 444pp. et 465pp. et 558pp. (1) et 416pp. (1) et 451pp. (1) et 429pp. (1) et 470pp. (1), 9 volumes reliés.

Third and best edition; it is indeed the most complete. Before composing this ensemble, several editions were published: in the first place an Introduction to the history of Dannemarc in 1755, which forms in our copy the first illustrated volume of a large folding map of Scandinavia. Two volumes in 4 will appear a few years later, then a third. The story was then continued until 1720, then until 1773 in this edition.
Full flamed calfskin bindings slightly posterior. Smooth backs decorated with 4 irons and wheels. Title and volume pieces in green calf. Misses in the head of volumes 5 and 7. Friction. 2 blunt corners. Nice copy.
The book is considered the best ancient history of Denmark, it is indeed extensively documented, and contains in addition a study of mythology and the 33 fables of what composes the Edda, as well as other epics. Before the historical narration, the first two volumes are an anthropological approach of Denmark, addressing the specificity of this country as much by its geographical location as by its customs and its mythology. The author lived for a long time in Denmark and was tutor to the reigning prince, at the same time as he was a professor at the Royal College of Copenhagen.

NB: This book is available at the bookstore on request within 48 hours.
