Du Rebus Gestis Ludovici Philippi Cominaei 1561


Du Rebus Gestis Ludovici, eius nominus undecimi Galliarum Regis, & Caroli, Burgundiae, Ducis.

(The history of Louis 11th and Charles, Duke of Burgundy).

By Philippi Cominaei. Translated from the French into Latin by Ioanne Sleidano (Johanne Slediano, Johannes Sledianus, sleidanus ioannes). Sleidanus (1506-1556) was a historian from Luxembourg.

Published Paris, 1561. Andrea Wecheli.

Hardback with original vellum covers and hand inked title to spine. 212pp + 10pp. Very good overall. Binding is sound. Text is very good - clean for age with occasional scholarly annotations. 1st free blank endpaper is torn with two thirds missing and an additional endpaper prior to title page has also been torn out. Age discoloration to covers and text as would be expected for a book of this age, but really a rather nice copy. Text in Latin.

Approximate dimensions: 11.6cm high x 9cm wide x 3.5cm deep.
