    Hardcover. Etat : Very Good. (4) ff, 806 pp, (1) ff. Bound in luxurious 19th century red morocco by Chambolle-Duru. Very good. Rare second edition, carefully corrected by Montaigne himself, of his chef d'oeuvre and a masterpiece of world literature. Montaigne continuously corrected his Essais throughout his lifetime, and modern commentators have often been able to trace the development of his thought through these changes, in addition to the reflections they provide of Montaigne's life experiences. The first of these corrected editions is the present work, published shortly after Montaigne's return from a voyage to Italy. The work is of particular American interest for one of the earliest and most astute accounts of Brazilian Indians published in the 16th century ("Des Cannibales," pp. 174-191), and certainly the most widely read account of Brazilian Indians known to Renaissance readers. More meticulously (and beautifully) printed than the first edition, the present work incorporates some 34 additions and 16 new citations relative to the 1580 text. Many of the new citations reference Italian sources - an indication of the profound effect Montaigne's travels in Italy (1580-1) had on the author. Other corrections - in text, style, orthography, punctuation, and the addition or suppression of words - have also been recorded by Marcel Françon. The edition of 1582 "permits first of all the correction of a somewhat corrupted text. but also represents a commercial endeavour by Millanges, who had a great interest in associating himself with a new political power [ie Montaigne, who had been elected Mayor of Bordeaux in 1581]." (Desan) In his thought-provoking discussion of civilized behaviour famously titled 'Des Cannibales', Montaigne draws on printed sources-Léry, Thevet and Osorio-as well as a personal encounter with ethnic Brazilians. Montaigne had been in Rouen in 1562 when a group of Indians were presented to Charles IX. In "Des Cannibales", he reports with remarkable accuracy on Brazilian morals, music, housing and other ethnographic details. Following a detailed description of cannibalism, the essayist draws a deft parallel with the torture methods employed by the Inquisition. Like the first edition, the present work contains the first two books of the Essais. A third would appear only in 1588. OCLC shows Chicago, Virginia, the NYPL, Yale, Princeton, and Harvard. * Desan 12; Sayce, 2; Tchemerzine-Scheler, IV, 871; M. Françon, Les Essais de 1582 (Harvard, 1969).

    Hardcover. Etat : Very Good. (4) ff., 496 ff., first leaf is an etched title, woodcut headpieces and initials. Bound in nineteenth-century red morocco, spine gold stamped in six compartments, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, ribbon bookmark, all edges gilt. Minor rubbing and edge wear to spine and boards, book labels inside upper cover and on front flyleaf, title engraving trimmed at or just inside platemark as is usual, faint inscription of verso of f. (4), some edge wear to f. 2, small loss at corner of f. 247 (SSS iii), a few minor paper flaws, very occasional minor staining, very minor browning to a few quires. The first complete edition of Michel de Montaigne's (1533-92) Essais, one of the most influential and profound works of world literature. This is the last edition printed during the author's lifetime and the definitive text on which all later editions are based. The volume, the so-called 'cinquièsme edition', is in fact the fourth edition, and contains the first appearance of the third book, printed from Montaigne's manuscript copy. (Sayce offers an interesting hypothesis for the odd numbering of this edition: "The substitution of fifth for fourth edition may have been prompted by the desire to suggest that the book was selling better than it was, a trick unknown today.") Montaigne's association with Abel L'Angelier, among the great printer-editors of the time, was as much a coup for the author as it was for the publisher, and the present volume's format, "larger than the normal L'Angelier quarto, gives Montaigne's book a certain prestige" (Desan, p. 42). The etched title page, of putti, masks and garlands in a quasi-architectural framework, is here in its second state, with the date added and the 'g' of 'grand' corrected; the copperplate seems to have been a bit large for the book, as it is, "often trimmed in almost all examples, even those with the fullest margins" (Desan, p. 42). The present copy is typical of surviving 1588 editions, almost all of which have been rebound in nineteenth-century red morocco (Desan, p. 42). The volume carries the bookplates of Horace de Landau (1824-1803) and the Swiss poet Albert Natural, as well as a label indicating that it was exhibited in 1949 at the Lucerne exhibition "Dix Siècles de livres français" (cat. no. 130 bis). OCLC locates U.S. copies at the Morgan Library, Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Chicago, Williams, Virginia, NYPL, and Clark Art. * P.

    Hardcover. Etat : Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION thus. Folio, pp. (xx) 664 (iv). A [¶]² B-Q , R , S-2P , 2Q-2R , 2S-3I , 3K , [3L]². [2Q4 is blank]. Books 2 and 3 each has separate dated title page. First word of title is xylographic. Preliminaries include quire [¶.]² following A8. [¶]1 bears a poem to John Florio; [¶]2 bears errors and omissions; these 2 leaves are frequently lacking. Roman letter, some Italic and Greek. Dedications on verso of title within woodcut cartouches, floriated woodcut initials, grotesque head and tailpieces, woodcut cartouche at the end of the first book, large woodcut headpieces with royal arms in dedication of second book, small typeset slip reading vyle pasted over towns on B1r, line 25, Q3,4 and Kk 3,4 misbound (inverted). Later autograph Davenport Talbot on front free endpaper, red morocco bookplate gilt of C.A. and V. Baldwin on front pastedown, Robert S. Pirie bookplate below. A fine copy, crisp and clean and unusually complete, in very handsome mid seventeenth century English tan calf, covers double blind ruled to a panel design, blind fleurons to inner and outer corners of central panel, outer panel lightly speckled, inner panel heavily so, darkly speckled spine with raised bands, gilt ruled in compartments, richly gilt with small scrolled tools and semée of pointillé tools, gilt lettered tan calf title label, very minor abrasions. A lovely copy of the first edition of the first English translation of Montaigne, translated by the remarkable John Florio, and the most important Elizabethan translation of any contemporary text. This copy is complete with the rare commendatory verses by Samuel Daniel according to Pforzheimer (cit inf.) the three British Library copies lack them. Montaigne devised the essay form in which to express his personal convictions and private meditations, a form in which he can hardly be said to have been anticipated. The most elaborate essay, the Apologie de Raimonde Selonde, is second to no other modern writing in attacking fanaticism and pleading for toleration he finds a place in the present canon, however, chiefly for his consummate representation of the enlightened scepticism of the sixteenth century, to which Bacon, Descartes and Newton were to provide the answers in the next Printing and the Mind of Man 95 (1st edn.) There is hardly any other writer in whom the human comedy is treated with such completeness as it is in Montaigne. His humorous and sceptical (if haphazard) analysis of the vanities of human affairs and pleasures of life, typify the closing years of the renaissance. He was one of the few great writers not only to perfect but to invent his chosen literary form; the method of thinking crystallised in his Essays exercised the greatest influence on posterity. Florio, working in his third language, produced a masterpiece of translation and his version soon became a classic of English literature in its own right. Shakespeare read this edition and used it eg. when writing a passage on the natural commonwealth in the Tempest and Burton, Milton, Hobbes and Locke all knew their Montaigne through Florio s translation. It remained a great and enduring influence on English literature and philosophy even down to our own day. ESTC S111839 .STC 18041. Lowndes III 1588. Pforzheimer I 378. Grolier I 102.

    Bound in red maroquin, the panels ruled and decorated with a large, gilt floral design in the center, their fore and inner edges are gilt. Spine with five raised bands, gilt decoration, and title. Marbled pastedown. All edges gilt. (2) ff., 469 (ie 496) pp., (30) ff. Extremely scarce second, revised edition. Just as rare as the first (1569) of Montaigne's first book, the French translation of Theologia Naturalis, the important source of natural theology, written by Raymond Sebond, the 15th-century Catalan theologian. Sebond's text was composed around 1435 in Latin, and it was first published in 1487. It declares that not merely the Bible, but also Nature is a Divine revelation, and holding a position against the scholastic antithesis, the concept that reason and faith, philosophy and theology are antithetical and irreconcilable. Montaigne made his translation of Sebon's text on his father's request however his personal interest in the book and his affiliation to its content is conspicuous not only through this corrected and revised second edition, but also the corresponding ideas exposed in his 1580 Essais, and particularly by the Essais' long and most recognised chapter "L'Apologie de Raymond Sebond" (Book II, chapter XII.), an eloquent expression of Christian scepticism, wherein Montaigne poses the famous question "What do I know?" (Que sçay-je? / Que sais-je?), which is the intrinsic motif of the entire work and also served as Montaigne personal motto. Albeit this edition is sometimes referred as a reprint of the editio princeps, Alain Brieux, a Parisian bookseller, reported in 1958 the discovery of Montaigne's own copy with 229 inserted corrections in Montaigne's hand, which were incorporated into this 1581 edition. Ref.: USTC 1693; FB 47582; Adams no. S 40 (Gourbin imprint) [Bibl.: Brieux, Alain: Autres Souvenirs de Montaigne. In: Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance, Vol. 20. Geneva: E.

    First edition in English of the Essais of Montaigne, one of the great books of the Elizabethan era and the crowning achievement of its translator John Florio. "His extraordinary skill in the use of alliteration, his ability to embroider and amplify the French original through the addition of English synonyms, his sense of rhythm, his art of turning French proverbs and expressions into idiomatic English equivalents, and his experimentation with new-formed English words (such as 'conscientious', 'endeare', 'efface', 'facilitate') made his Montaigne one of the great translations of the Elizabethan age. The work was a source of inspiration for such as Ben Jonson, Sir Walter Ralegh, John Webster, and Shakespeare. Despite the fact that, as a translation, it was occasionally inaccurate, 'Florio's Montaigne' was reprinted both in his lifetime and over subsequent centuries" (ODNB). Luborsky & Ingram 18041; Pforzheimer 378; STC 18041. Folio (276 x 188 mm). Contemporary blind-panelled calf, neatly rebacked, red morocco spine label and dated in gilt at foot. Housed in a blue morocco-grain cloth folding case, spine lettered in gilt. Books 2 and 3 with separate dated title pages but continuous register; verses by Daniel and errata ( 1,2: "these 2 leaves are frequently lacking" - ESTC); complete with blank 2Q4 and 2 final errata leaves 3K5,6. Woodcut vignettes of altars on verso of first title-page, woodcut headpieces and initials, a few headpieces composed of printer's ornaments, woodcut tailpiece cartouche at the end of the first book; with the headline on A2v corrected to "The Epistle Dedicatorie", but without the printed slip-cancel on B1r (correcting "towns" at line 25) found in some copies. A few very small pen trials on title, single marginal note on A2r, ownership inscription dated 1689 at foot of 2v. Small paper restoration to title in gutter and to final errata leaves at head and tail, some light dampstaining at head towards end of Book 3 and very occasionally elsewhere, the occasional minor mark, spot, spill-burn, etc. but the paper generally clean and strong, overall a very good copy.

    The Definitive Edition and First Folio Edition MONTAIGNE, Michel de. Les Essais.Edition nouvelle, trouvee apres le deceds de l'Autheur, reveue & augmentee par luy d'un tiers plus qu'aux precedentes Impressions. Paris: chez Michel Sonnius, 1595. The Definitive edition and the first folio edition. Folio. [24], 523, [1 blank], 231, [1 errata] pp. Modern maroon morocco. Morocco spine label, raised bands, old gilt edges. Contents skillfully washed and sized, a few marginal tears not affecting text, some scattered pencil marginalia. A very good copy. This edition, edited by the French bluestocking Marie de Jars, Demoiselle de Gournay (1566-1645), has some claim to be the definitive edition of Montaigne's Essais. Mlle de Gournay, who as a very young girl had travelled to Paris to meet her intellectual hero, was Montaigne's adopted daughter. After Montaigne's death, his widow presented Mlle de Gournay with the philosopher's copiously annotated copy of the 1588 edition of his Essais, the last issued during his lifetime and the first to include the third book. Having inserted Montaigne's additions, marked the alterations, and translated all the quotations, Mlle de Gournay sent the proofs to Bordeaux, where the poet Pierre de Brach collated them against another copy with Montaigne's annotations deposited in the convent of the Feuillants in Bordeaux. "The edition thus produced in 1595 has with justice passed as the standard, even in preference to those which appeared in the author's lifetime" (Ency. Brit.). Copies were also issued with the imprint of Abel l'Angelier. STC French Books, p. 317; Adams M-1622 (both l'Angelier imprint); Graesse IV, 579 ("aujourd'hui la principale edition de Montaigne, pour l'authenticite du texte"). HBS 66552. $25,000.

Con un Discorso se is forastiero si deue admettere alla administratione della Republica. All'Illustriss. & Eccell. Sig. Don Cesare d'Este. - [THE FIRST TRANSLATION OF MONTAIGNE'S ESSAYS] mis en vente par Lynge & Søn ILAB-ABF

    Ferrara, Benedetto Mamarello, 1590. Small 8vo. Later half vellum with gilt title-label to spine. Marbbled paper over boards. A faint damp stain to the last few leaves, otherwise a nice and clean copy. Old ownership-signature to last leaf. Bookplate to inside of front board. Large woodcut device to title-page. Woodcut initials and headpieces at beginning. (8), 170, (5) pp. The very scarce first edition of the first translation into any language of any part of Montaigne's Essays, namely Naselli's monumental first Italian translation, which came to pave the way for later translations of the work, among them Florio's first English from 1603. Montaigne's magnum opus was published in 1580, and in 1588, the final edition appeared, constituting the definitive text of the work and that on which all later editions were based. With his seminal work, Montaigne not only created a novel genre of writing, he also founded modern scepticism and the revival of ancient scepticism, and he paved the way for the modern philosophy and thought presented by Bacon, Decartes and Newton. "Unlike anti-intellectuals like Erasmus, Montaigne developed his doubts through reasoning. Unlike his skeptical predecessors who presented mainly a series of reports on the variety of human opinions, Montaigne worked out his complete Pyrrhonism through a sequence of levels of doubt, culminating in some crucial philosophical difficulties. The occurrence of Montaigne's revitalization of the Pyrrhonism of Sextus Empiricus, coming at a time when the intellectual world of the 16th century was collapsing, made the "nouveau Pyrrhonisme" of Montaigne not the blind alley that historians like Copleston and Weber have portrayed, but one of the crucial forces in the formation of modern thought. It was also to be the womb of modern thought, in that it led to the attempt either to refute the new Pyrrhonism, or to find a way of living with it." (Popkin, vol. II, 1960, pp. 54-55). There are many important aspects of Montaigne's groundbreaking work, which has been subject of an uncountable number of scholars throughout centuries. But one aspect which seems to have been forgotten in recent times is one that is emphasized by Naselli's extremely important first ever translation of the work. As the Italian title will reveal, the work was also widely viewed - and intended - as a political council book. Naselli bases his translation on Montaigne's own final edition from 1588 and publishes it merely two years later, including 42 of 94 chapters of the first two books. His translation is the one closest in time to the original appearance of the work and is the only one published in Montaigne's own life-time. It is thus in a unique position to tell us about contemporary views on the work and its use. "One enormously important prose genre upon which Montaigne draws most heavily consists of political advice books for courtiers and princes that proliferated in great number and with great social and political impact in the late Renaissance. Montaigne's appropriation of the political counsel genre has gone largely unnoticed by contemporary scholars, and bringing it into focus has significant implications for our understanding of the "Essais". bringing it to the foreground allows us to challenge more robustly the common conclusion that Montaigne's unique project "is not a political work."Many in the first generation of Montaigne's reception appear to have seen the "Essais" principally as a contribution to the political contribution to the political counsel literature. For example, Girolamo Naselli's 1590 Italian translation of the "Essais is titled "Discorsi morali, politici e military", while John Florio follows Naselli's lead in the title of his 1603 English translation, "The Essayes or Morall, politike and militaire discourses". And when Francis Bacon enthusiastically adopts Montaigne's novel "Essai"-form for his own ends, he does so as a useful means of giving "Councels Civill and Morall", not simply musings personal and poetic." (Thompson, Montaigne and the Tolerance of Politics, p. 21). As is mentioned on the title-page, this first translation also contains another, long "questione". "In this deliberative discourse, very different in kind from anything a modern reader would associate with "Essais", and apparently composed soon after the winter 1576-7 Estates General of Blois, the author argues methodically and resolutely against those at the assembly who in a public "ragionamento" demonstrated the employment of foreigners in a republic to be universally undesirable, and who nearly succeeded in having this position passed into law." (Boutcher: The Scool of Montaigne in Early Modern Europe, vol. 2, p. 136).

    Couverture rigide. Etat : Très bon. In-folio (368 x 236 mm), 20 ff. n. ch., 871 pp., 1 p. n. ch., 11 ff. n. ch. Maroquin noir, dos à nerfs orné à la grotesque au pointillé, titre et tranches dorés, feuillet de titre réenmargé, étui moderne avec partie supérieure décollée (reliure de l'époque). Second tirage de cette très importante édition des Essais donnée par Melle de Gournay, illustrée d'un beau portrait gravé de Montaigne, et dédiée au Cardinal de Richelieu. Ce nouveau tirage corrige nombre d'erreurs qui étaient apparues dans le premier, publié par Toussaint Le Bray et ajoute au titre des armes dans les socles à l'antique. Dans de nombreux passages, cette édition revient au texte de l'édition de 1595, avec quelques inévitables rafraîchissements du vocabulaire. Pour Brunet, "Cette édition, dédiée au cardinal de Richelieu, l'emporte peut-être sur celle de 1595, à cause des pièces qui y sont jointes, et parce qu'elle donne la traduction des citations (.)". Notre exemplaire contient bien les 19 corrections portées à la plume par Mlle de Gournay elle-même, répertoriées par Sayce et Maskell, auxquelles elle fait référence dans sa longue préface : "nous avons pris la peine de corriger la plus part des erreurs avec la plume, & recueillir en un Errata bien exact le reste de celles qui peuvent importer". A titre d'exemple, à la p. 14, soy est corrigé en elle, à la page 18, forte devient haute. C'est un témoignage de l'exigence d'exactitude de celle qui s'était voulue la fidèle dépositaire de l'oeuvre de son père spirituel. Les traductions des citations grecques et latines, placées à la fin de chaque essai, répondent certainement à l'empire croissant du français sanctionné par la création de l'Académie française selon la volonté du Cardinal, quelques mois seulement avant la dédicace de Marie de Gournay.

    Woodcut ornament to both title-pages. Two vols in one. 8vo (180x110mm). [22]ff. 829pp. 360pp. [12]ff (last blank). Contemporary limp vellum, title lettered in ink at head of spine, binding detached revealing sewing of quires and printed binder?s waste fragment lining spine and vellum quire guards (some wear, small hole rear cover). Fifth edition, the first with indexes, one for Books I-II, and one for Book III and only the second edition to hold the complete text. It follows closely the fourth edition of Abel L?Angelier of 1588, which was the last produced before Montaigne?s death in 1592, and the first to contain the Third Book. Although this copy has a significant stain on the first title-page, which affects a few following leaves, it remains in its original limp vellum binding, which has now come loose to reveal the binding structure and sewing, and the interesting use of another contemporary printed waste to line the spine. The fragments appear to come from a very rare anonymous political tract, Le fouet des heretiques, politicques et traistres de la France, published in Lyon by Louis Tantillon, 1590 (BNF Résac. LB35 1339), pp. 19/20 (- see Denis Pallier Recherches sur l?imprimerie à Paris pendant le Ligue (1585?1594) no. 671_. Leaving aside Ronsard and Rabelais, today the most famous book written and published in French in the sixteenth century is probably the Essais of Michel Eyquem. seigneur de Montaigne, a work unpretentious in its first appearance and roughly presented, but a work which today, in part because of its author?s self-doubt ? ?Que scay-je?? - has attained a status afforded to few writers of the century. One might name in addition to the two Frenchmen already cited, Erasmus, More, Castiglione, two of whom wrote their works in Latin but they, for all their fame, are not such household names as that of Montaigne. Montaigne wrote in French, although his education had been completely Latinate, and he wrote at a time of civil unrest, but he was able, after a life of public service, in his own book-filled tower to give himself over to personal liberty, tranquillity and proper quiet. He does not, but well could he have quoted the Virgilian tag ?Deus nobis haec otia fecit? But it was not just God who had made him, it was a friend, Etienne de la Boétie (1530-63) whose influence both in life and posthumously ? for he died young ? turned Montaigne into the person called by Sainte-Beuve ?the wisest of all Frenchmen?: ?J?appelle Montaigne le Français le plus sage qui ait jamais existé? (Nouvelles Causeries de lundi, vol. 2, p. 177). The result of this God-given ease is the work known as the Essays. Title-page with dark stain affecting lower outer corner, gradually fading away after first few quires, title slightly frayed at fore-edge, minor worming affecting mostly blank inner margin of pp. 510-550, a few stains here and there but otherwise a well-margined and unsophisticated copy. Provenance: inscription of the Capuchins on title dated 1628?, partially inked over. Sayce & Maskell 5. OCLC: for North America only: Morgan, Princeton, Berkeley, Chicago, Harvard and Toronto. Sayce & Maskell adds Folger.

    Etat : Very good plus. Inscribed first edition, first issue, second printing (before publication) of this transcendentalist approach to the Great Man theory of history - an important copy, early among Emerson's inscriptions. The Transcendentalist belief in the inherent goodness of the world and the importance of individualism is reflected in Ralph Waldo Emerson's REPRESENTATIVE MEN. Emerson, a leading light of the Transcendentalist movement, found fertile ground in the Great Man theory of history, which focuses on how the works and lives of prominent individuals affected the world around them. Emerson's six REPRESENTATIVE MEN - Plato, Emanuel Swedenborg, Michel de Montaigne, Shakespeare, Napoleon, and Goethe - are those whose biographies he finds "teach us the qualities of primary nature, - admit us to the constitution of things." This copy is inscribed by Emerson to Elizabeth Davis Bancroft, a noted epistolary writer of the Victorian period whose reflections on English society via correspondence were published after her death. George Bancroft, Elizabeth's husband, was in fact one of the driving forces of the Great Man theory; his "fervently nationalistic interpretation of American history," concerned with justifying the divine providence of US exceptionalism, relied heavily on this framework to guide his narratives (Cheng, 3). Mrs. and Mr. Bancroft were good friends of Emerson and his wife, whose company Elizabeth remarks upon several times in her letters. Most copies signed by Emerson that appear on the market today are much later inscriptions than this, from the year of publication in one of his early books. 7.5'' x 4.5''. Original blind-stamped brown cloth with gilt spine lettering. Yellow endpapers. 286 pages, with [2] pages of ads to rear, collated complete. Inscribed by Emerson to front flyleaf, "Mrs. Bancroft / with affectionate regards" dated Feb. 8 1850 in Concord. Tiny blind-embossed bookseller seal to corners of front flyleaf and first blank. Binding expertly rebacked with original spine laid down. Boards with a few small areas of rubbing. A bit of toning to endpapers. Interior quite clan and bright. Sharp.

    Second edition. Second edition of Florio's great translation which was first published in 1603. Small folio (11 3/8 x 7 1/4 inches; 290 x 185 mm), collating: [12], 630, [2, blank] pp. With engraved portrait of Florio on leaf A6v, which was not included in the first English edition. With historiated initials and engraved head-and-tail pieces. The second and third books have separate dated title pages but pagination is continuous. This second edition replaces the original dedications of the three books to various Court ladies with a dedication and a new sonnet in Italian to the Queen, Anne of Denmark, who had appointed Florio as her reader in Italian and private secretary. Also for the first time in this edition is the anonymous sonnet Concerning the Honor of Bookes, which was once attributed to Shakespeare but is more probably by Samuel Daniel. Full contemporary polished calf. Boards and spine ruled in gilt. Board edges tooled in gilt. All edges speckled red. Remnants of green silk ties. Outer hinges professionally repaired. No front or rear pastedowns. Previous owner's bookplates. Contemporary ink notes on front free endpaper. Some minor toning to title-page, and some occasional light dampstaining. Small hole to leaf Xx3, and light scrape to Ddd3, both with minor loss of text. Overall a very good copy. This is considered the most important Elizabethan translation of any contemporary text. Its influence on English writers and philosophers of the time, including Shakespeare, Bacon, Milton, Hobbes and Locke, can hardly be overestimated. "Montaigne startles the common reader at each fresh encounter, if only because he is unlike any preconception we bring him. He can be interpreted as skeptic, humanist, Catholic, Stoic, even Epicurean" (Bloom, The Western Canon , 147-151) "Montaigne devised the essay form in which to express his personal convictions and private meditations, a form in which he can hardly be said to have been anticipated.He finds a place in the present canon, however, chiefly for his consummate representation of the enlightened scepticism of the sixteenth century, to which Bacon, Descartes, and Newton were to provide the answers in the next" (Printing and the Mind of Man 95). "The unfolding of a mind of genius in dialogue with itself and with the world, a Renaissance humanist speaking to all humanity" (Hollier, A New History of French Literature , 250). Grolier, Langland to Wither, 102. Pforzheimer 378 (Florio, 1st edition). STC 18042. ESTC S111840.

    Couverture rigide. Etat : Très bon. In-4 de 1 portrait, 4 ff.n.ch., LIV, 416 pp. ; veau fauve glacé, dos à nerfs, compartiments ornés de fleurons et fers d'angle, pièces d'armes dans les angles des plats (macle et chabot alternés), roulette intérieure, deux filets sur les coupes, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). LUXUEUSE ÉDITION, LA PREMIÈRE DANS LE FORMAT IN-4, PARUE L'ANNÉE DE L ORIGINALE. Elle est ornée en frontispice d'un portrait gravé par Saint-Aubin : cette reprise de la gravure de Nicolas Voyer (1771) permit de diffuser largement l'image d'un Montaigne « au chapeau ». Le manuscrit original du Journal du voyage en Italie, que son auteur ne destinait pas à la publication mais conservait à son seul usage, fut oublié pendant près de deux siècles. Il ne fut retrouvé dans un coffre au château de Montaigne, par l'abbé Prunis, qu'en 1770. L'éditeur parisien Le Jay confia la tâche de l'éditer à Anne-Gabriel Meunier de Querlon, gardien des manuscrits de la Bibliothèque du Roi, qui dédia le livre à Buffon. Quatre éditions virent le jour en 1774. La première fut imprimée en deux volumes in-12. Peu après parurent une édition in-quarto, puis une édition en trois volumes au format in-12. Une quatrième, enfin, vit le jour en deux volumes in-12, mais amputée du texte italien. Le Jay choisit Rome comme adresse fictive d'édition, sans doute pour souligner le caractère italien du journal. Complément du maître-livre de Montaigne, le Voyage est même « un essai plus vrai que les Essais » (Paul Faure, préface à l'édition de 1948). De plus, par un coup du destin, le manuscrit autographe ayant disparu peu de temps après sa découverte, l'édition de 1774 représente le seul texte « original » à la disposition des lecteurs. Le Journal du voyage en Italie, rédigé pour partie en français et pour partie en italien, a été tenu lors du voyage entrepris par Montaigne juste après qu'eut paru la première édition des Essais : dix-sept mois d'un périple au gré de l'humeur, du 22 juin 1580 au 30 novembre 1581, interrompu par la nomination de l'auteur comme maire de Bordeaux. Fuyant la routine d'une vie de gentilhomme campagnard, Montaigne s'ennuie du monde et de ses tracas. Aussi va-t-il, « par gambades », « promener sa philosophie » comme l'écrit joliment le préfacier, Meunier de Querlon. Le voyage devait nourrir le livre III des Essais. Une grande partie du Journal environ 30 % du texte a donc été rédigée directement en italien par Montaigne. Cette langue traitée de façon cavalière, à la fois expressive et savoureuse, ce style vif et heurté ont suscité de nombreux commentaires et analyses. BEL EXEMPLAIRE RELIE EN VEAU GLACE PORTANT LES PIECES D'ARMES DES ROHAN-CHABOT. Il a vraisemblablement fait partie de la bibliothèque de Guy-Auguste de Rohan-Chabot (1683-1760) ce même Chevalier de Rohan qui fit bastonner et embastiller Voltaire en 1726 , avant de passer dans celle de son fils, Louis-Antoine de Rohan-Chabot (1733-1807), correspondant de Madame du Barry et personnalité de l'Émigration. Les exemplaires du Journal du voyage de Montaigne en belle reliure du temps et dotés d'une provenance significative sont rares. Cachet anciennement gratté sur le titre, épidermures peu prononcées sur les plats, habile restauration à la coiffe supérieure. Références : Desan, nº 111 : « En accord avec le goût bibliophilique du XVIIIe siècle, le format in-4 est considéré comme le plus désirable ». Lacouture, Montaigne à cheval, 1996, pp. 193-225 : « L'érudit s'est fait philosophe, le retraité combattant. La déambulation cavalière à travers la Rhénanie, la Suisse, la Bavière, le Tyrol et les Italies aura contribué à accoucher le Montaigne qui va agir sur l'histoire de son temps »). J.-M. Chatelain, "Noms de pays : l'Italie de Michel de Montaigne", in Poètes, princes & collectionneurs. Mélanges offerts à Jean Paul Barbier-Mueller, Genève, 2011, pp. 351-366).

    Etat : molto buono. 2 opere in un volume in-4 (mm.220x170), parte prima: pp. (12), 780. (4, due di ''elenco Libri stampati da M:Ginammi'', e 2 bianche); parte seconda: pp. 58, (2). Impresa tipografica della Speranza sui due titoli, capilettera silografici ornati e istoriati. Legatura coeva piena pergamena rigida, titolo oro al dorso. Prima traduzione integrale dei celebri ''Essays'' di Montaigne, completi della seconda parte. La prima edizione francese vide la luce nel 1580-1588, con ampliamenti nell'edizione postuma del 1595. L'unico precedente volgarizzamento (Ferrara, 1590) consisteva in una semplice cernita dell'opera; la presente versione, ancorché ascritta al Ginammi nel frontespizio, è in realtà parto della penna di Girolamo Naselli, che la dedica a Davide Spinelli. Fu uno dei capolavori della letteratura moralistica di ogni tempo, esposizione della filosofia scettica dell'autore. L'''Apologia'', dedicata a a Annibale Mariscotti, costituisce il 12° capitolo del secondo libro ed è una sorta di esposizione della filosofia scettica di Montaigne. Esemplare assai fresco e genuino. ''Seconda, rispetto alla prima parziale versione comparsa a Ferrara nel 1590 ad opera di Girolamo Naselli, quella di Girolamo Canini ha il pregio della completezza. Non è che il suo intervento risulti a prima vista evidente: chè i suoi Saggi. figurano ''trasportati dalla lingua francese nell'italiana per opera di Marco Ginammi''.; e così pure a proposito della versione, uscita separatamente l'anno dopo, dell'Apologie de Raymond Sebond. Ma in realtà il Ginammi non fu che il munifico tipografo, spinto più da esigenza di ''riputazione'' che dalla speranza di guadagno. Egli stesso avverte infatti che la traduzione si deve al Canini, ''soggetto di. straordinarie virtu'' (Dizionario Laterza). Cfr. ''Bulletin du Bibliophile 1984, pp.535-538: Premières éditions Italiennes des Essays.'' Graesse, IV, 580. Diz. Biogr. Italiani, vol. 55, pp.1-3 (su Ginammi).

    8vo (104 x 152 mm). 3-480 (instead of 496) pp., lacking title and remaining 3 leaves of preliminaries, first leaf of text, and 8 leaves between p. "276" and "294". 17th century full calf with gilt spine and labels "Essais de Montaig" - "Tom I", leading edges gilt. Edges sprinkled blue. First edition of one of the most important works written and published in French in the 16th century. Incomplete copy of the first part only, lacking the first five leaves as well as the eight leaves comprising the 29 sonnets. - Montaigne's groundbreaking essays on an eclectic array of subjects - from cannibals to solitude, from sleep to sadness - constituted an entirely unique and unprecedented literary genre, and a philosophy of knowledge that was based on his own personal experience and observations, epitomizing 16th century enlightened scepticism. "The most elaborate essay, the 'Apologie de Raimond Sebonde', is second to no other modern writing in attacking fanaticism and pleading for tolerance" (PMM). - The publishing history of this work is complex, both for the rather careless printing of the first edition, and in large part because the changes to the text between editions were considerable: Montaigne's text was by no means static but constantly evolved under the eye of the author who "considered each new edition as the last". This first edition, printed by Millanges in the spring of 1580, is unsophisticated and rather hastily composed, as betrayed by the innumerable misprints, font and type inconsistencies, errors in page numbering and textual variants. This copy has G2 and Aa5 missigned as 2G and A5, while Aa2 is correctly signed thus (not as Aa; see Sayce & Maskell, p. 2), and the corrected states of C8 and O8 (ibid., p. 5, note 7), as well as the letters 'gsit' accidentally printed at the foot of Gg3 (ibid., p. 6, no. 9). The irregular spacing of lines on the page - occasionally very cramped - indicates composition by forme. - Copies of early editions of Montaigne's work are extremely rare. Fewer than 100 examples are estimated to exist in private and institutional collections worldwide, suggested by some to point to a small original print run of only 300 to 400 copies (Bibliotheca Desaniana, no. 8, 2011; Balsamo, p. 160). - Corners bumped, spine-ends chipped, hinges starting. Paper somewhat browned. PMM 95. Sayce & Maskell 1. Tchemerzine IV, 870. Brunet III, 1835.

A very good copy crisp and clean in handsome contemporary calf, covers bordered with a triple blind rule, spine with raised bands, gilt ruled, red morocco label gilt lettered, small repairs at head and lower outer joint, upper corners restored, all edges sprinkled blue. A very good copy of the second edition of the first English translation of the Essays, by the remarkable John Florio, probably the most famous prose translation in Renaissance England. Montaigne (1533-92) devised the essay form in which to express his personal convictions and private meditations, a form which he can hardly be said to have been anticipated. The most elaborate essay . is second to no other modern writing in attacking fanaticism and intolerance. He finds a place in the present canon however, chiefly for his consummate representation of the enlightened scepticism of the sixteenth century, to which Bacon, Descartes and Newton were to provide the answers in the next. Printing and the Mind of Man, cit. infr. There is hardly any other writer in whom the human comedy is treated with such completeness as it is in Montaigne. His humorous and sceptical (if haphazard) analysis of the vanities of human affairs and pleasures of life, typify the closing years of the Renaissance and the realisation that a golden age once more was just beyond mortal grasp. He was one of the few great writers not only to perfect but to invent his chosen literary form: the method of thinking crystallized in his Essays exercised the greatest influence on posterity, not least in England. There seems no doubt that Shakespeare read Florio s version of Montaigne. The Tempest contains clear echoes of Montaigne s essay Of the Caniballes . In Gonzalo s description of his perfect natural commonwealth there is no kind of traffic , no name of magistrate , no riches, poverty, And use of service . The essay also raises key questions explored in the play through Shakespeare s portrayal of Caliban and the Italians on the island. Inspired by reports into the exploration of Brazil, Montaigne celebrates the puritie of societies governed by the lawes of nature . He challenges any clear division between civilised Europeans and so-called savage nations, arguing that we exceede them in all kinde of barbarisme . In prying so narrowly into their faults , he says, we are blinded to our own. As Shakespeare seems to suggest in the treachery of his Italian characters Antonio, Sebastian, Trinculo and Stephano barbarism is not inherent in one nation or another but a matter of individual behaviour. British Library Florio produced a masterpiece of translation and his version soon became a classic of English literature in its own right, and it remains a great and enduring influence on English literature and philosophy until this day. Montaigne is one of the great translations of the Elizabethan age. The work was a source of inspiration for such as Ben Jonson, Sir Walter Ralegh, John Webster, and Shakespeare. ODNB.

    Hardcover. Etat : Very Good. Large folio (390 x 265mm). 840pp. Copper plate engraved printer s device of Courbé, a single palm tree surrounded by putti, some trumpeting, in frame with motto in allusion to his name Curvata Resurgo (curved, I straighten up) signed by Daret. Title printed in red and black. Full-page copper engraved half title with author portrait of Michel de Montaigne, the same as the 1635 edition. Near contemporary calf, the spine tooled and lettered in gilt with raised bands; (worming and small dampstain to margin of last 100 pages not affecting text, other spotting and small stains, binding slightly rubbed with losses to spine tips, otherwise internally bright with clean wide margins). Large Paris folio edition of Montaigne s moralist and political Essais. This 1652 edition contains, beside the Essays, the long preface and dedication of de Gournay, the preface of Montaigne, a summary of his life, references to the authors in the margin, and translations of the passages quoted. These citations, often very lengthy, make the Essays not only one of the great philosophical investigations in the Western tradition, but a storehouse of the most beautiful and profound passages of classical literature. His citations from classical authors, including Lucretius are especially remarkable. The whole is preceded by a notice of Estienne, in which he details the improvements he has made in this edition, most notably by placing the translations opposite the text the first time this arrangement was introduced. Estienne also allowed Courbé the privilege to use his name and device on the title for this edition only, although the work was printed on Estienne s press. This same year Cousterout prints the work but uses the Estienne device. "I do not teach, I tell" Montaigne Montaigne s Essays are central to the development of the early modern consciousness of the self; his skepticism and proto-empiricism were highly influential upon early modern scientific enquiry, especially upon the works of Bacon. In the Essays, Montaigne transcends his skepticism and transforms his stoicism to offer a positive and urgent message to his contemporaries. This message constitutes a new ethics, one of goodness, fellowship and trust, all countering the model of heroic virtue, which dominated his culture and his class by honor-bound aristocrats and religious zealots alike. Directed principally to the nobility of a nation torn apart by civil and religious conflict, which forms the backdrop of the Essays, Montaigne s message shuns violence and urges for a new civilizing process. His moral argument depicts extreme humanist aspirations toward radical and divisive individualism, in the name of a shared humanity. Canonical work in large format, attractive and good with Courbé s device found less often.

    (Con un Discorso se il forastiero si deve admettere alla administratione della Republica) 8° (mm. 157 x 115) piena pergamena coeva, cc.nn. 4, num. 170, nn. 2. Marca tipografica incisa in legno al frontespizio, iniziali e fregi xilografici. Piccolo restauro al margine bianco inferiore del frontesp., con ultimo numero della data rifatto a mano, pochi antichi segni a penna, piccoli segni di tarlo al margine bianco interno delle cc. centrali, lieve e piccolo aloncino marginale, peraltro buon esemplare fresco. Prima e rara edizione italiana degli Essais, curata da Girolamo Naselli, contemporaneo di Montaigne. Questa pregiata traduzione, condotta sulla prima edizione (Bordeaux, 1580) è una delle prime traduzioni mai realizzate dei Saggi, precedente anche la prima inglese del 1603. Naselli, che sembra avesse notizia anche delle edizioni posteriori, quanto bastava per aggiungere nel frontespizio, il titolo di Governatore di Bordeaux agli altri di Montaigne che già figuravano nell'ediz. del 1580, traduce in tutto quarantadue saggi, esercitando inoltre una lieve censura sull'originale. Adams, M-1625.
