Description du livre London: printed by Peter Short, 1600, 1600. 2 works bound in 1, folio (281 x 184 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered in manuscript, lacks ties. With 19th-century ownership inscriptions ("Mr R. Thomas, from Mr. Wm. Owen his cousin, North Wales" and "R. G. Thomas 1842, from his mother") and later ownership inscriptions of Spencer John Skipper, a South Australian-born journalist, and his eldest son Herbert Stanley Skipper (1880–1962), solicitor and promoter of libraries, all to the front pastedown. Barret diagram on F6v just shaved at fore edge margin; Edmondes first plate just shaved at fore edges, third plate with small loss of border at foot; these minor flaws consequent to the folding plates being bound in and trimmed as double-page. Vellum a little short at foot and likely re-cased at an early date, front joint split at head, small repair to fore edge of front cover, slight fraying to first two leaves of Edmondes, small dampstain at foot, lower third of folding leaf O1 in Barret skilfully reattached, a few minor marks and spill-burns, still a very good copy. Barret: woodcut vignette to title, full-page woodcut arms of dedicatee on title verso, woodcut diagrams in text, leaf O1 (a singleton) is a folded diagram, full-page woodcut arms of author on last leaf verso (Y6v). Edmondes: 6 engraved plates (4 double-page). First editions of two of the most authoritative of the military treatises issued in the period. At a time when England had largely been isolated from developments elsewhere, Barret derived his authority from "having spent the most part of my time in the profession of Armes, and that among forraine nations, as the French, the Dutch, the Italian, and Spaniard". His book, dedicated to Henry Herbert, earl of Pembroke, and his son William, later the co-dedicatee of the 1623 Shakespeare first folio, is finely printed by Shakespeare's Stratford schoolfellow Richard Field. The downfall of Shakespeare's Parolles in All's Well that Ends Well ("the gallant militarist that had the whole theoricke of warre in the knot of his scarfe, and the practise in the chape of his dagger" – IV, iii) may be an echo of the book's title. Edmondes's work is a commentary on books 1–5 of Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars, together with an abridged translation of the books. "Edmondes explained that the work was directed at English soldiers and he supplemented his comments on Roman military practice with observations on contemporary campaigns, including those of the English forces in France and the war in Ireland, as well as the battle of Dreux of 1562 between the royal army and protestant forces in France. He also discussed the question of how to deal with an invasion of England, whether to oppose an invading army at the coast or to withdraw and offer battle later. His preference was to fortify the coast of Kent and oppose a landing. As well as military matters, he included an explanation of the causes of tides" (ODNB). STC (also Luborsky & Ingram) 1500 & 7488.
