François GUICHARDIN (Lodovico GUICCIARDINI) Histoire des guerres d'Italie


Histoire des guerres d'Italie

Chez Paul et Isaac Vaillant, Londres 1738, 3 Vol. in-4 (19,5x26cm), (4) xxvj (16) 620pp. et (4) xi, 604pp. et (10) 476pp; (188), relié.

New edition. Although other editions have been given in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it is not only the most beautiful edition of this text, but also the best translation by Favre, reviewed by Gorgeons and others .. Full speckled antique glazed calf. Back tooled raised florets in 4 boxes. Part of title in red morocco. Caps head leveled. Tail headdress of Volume II threadbare. Wormholes and a gallery on the upper flat of Volume I. A flap of skin torn on upper cover of Volume III of 3 cm. Corners bumped. Of the three title pages, two rectangles of paper were pasted ly of both sides, under the title, thus masking a previous owner. History of the wars of Italy begins in 1490 and ends in 1534; Guicciardini worked there for 27 years, and his work, in the opinion of critics of his time is valuable and of great merit, even though it was criticized its violence would greatly praised his impartiality; this work did much to modernize methods in history. Ambassador, writer and politician of Florence, friend Machiavelli, Guicciardini is part of the pantheon of great men of Florence. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
