London: Gerard Dewes, 1578. 1st Edition. Full calf. 2º, 30cm.; 779pp. + index.; Expertly restored by binder Trevor Lloyd and including final fol. in facsimile and spot repairs to corners and edges. Some damp staining here and there and soiling to title page. Contemporary signature to foot of title: "William Browne his booke" Very good. Item #52

This first English edition was translated from the French by Henry Lyte. The French translation was by Charles de L’Ecluse. Title page contains the error “…by my Gerard Dewes, …” Some number of copies had the ‘y’ excised presumably by the printer and replaced with an ‘e’. This copy retains the ‘y’ as typesetter laid down and thus remains unaltered post-impression.

Price: $4,500.00
