Philippe de COMMYNES (ou COMMINES)

Les memoires de Messire Philippe de Commines, chevalier, seigneur d'Argenton : sur les faicts & gestes abbregees, de Loys xj. & Charles viij. son fils, rois de France: Auec la vie de mess. Angelo Cattho, archeuesque de Vienne: Plus, deux epistres de Iean Sleidan en la recommandation de l'autheur. Le tout reueu & corrigé de nouueau. Item, vn indice des choses plus remarquables

Pour Jacques Chouet, [Genève] 1593, in-12 (8x14,3cm), (38) 854pp. (1f. bc.), relié.


New edition of the revised version by Denys Savage with the Epistles of Sleidan, which seems to have appeared for the first time in 1579 in Bonefons in Paris. Velin full time flexible flap. As pen and time. Traces of laces. The first white layer was not connected. Very pale wetness of p.280 to 330P. Good copy in the old binding. Father of modern history, the book Commynes, which also sets a rule of political conduct of the Great Kingdom, is the largest source of this contemporary. From 1472 to 1483, after having been the advisor to the Duke of Burgundy (Charles the Bold), Commynes will the service of Louis XI, then Charles VIII and Louis XII. There shine through his diplomatic skills, especially in Italy; thereby memoirs are also a history of Europe. We often forget that his exemplary career enjoyed an interlude of disgrace opposing the young Charles VIII by his liberal ideas, he joined the cause of the future Louis XII (conspiracy to remove Charles VIII). He was accordingly arrested and locked up in an iron cage in Loches for five months in 1488. Until now, the work is still studied, Memoirs Commynes never failed to success and the interest. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
