Geschiedenis - Aantal: 1 - Boek

An extremely rare first edition printed privately at the chateau de Sully by a typographer from Angers, it indeed contains (pages 470 to 488 of the first volume) the French and Latin text of the "Parallèles de César et de Henry le Grand" printed in Roman typeface, which distinguishes it from the forgeries and subsequent editions where it was printed in italics. Another point is that the word "soldats" in the title is written with a lower case "s" and the front of the page is blank.
Title page with the emblem of 3 virtues crowned with amaranth (in reality at the chateau de Sully) undated (1638), folio volume bound in later ivory-coloured vellum binding, title written in fountain pen on the spine (a small lack of vellum at the head of the spine and the back cover), the paper is yellowed, some scattered foxing and small, clear water stains in the margins and at the end of the volume, small, inconsequential wormholes in the margin. Bookplate on the title page.
1 blank page, title page, 5 pages, “imprimeur au lecteur” 1 page, mémoires 530 pages (including general table 8 pages).

Very securely packed registered and insured UPS shipment, delivered against signature.
