Boards rubbed with some loss/drying of leather, corners exposed. 1734 Full-Leather. Complete in sixteen volumes. Full calf, morocco spine labels, gilt titles and tooled compartments. The life's work of the French historian and book collector who lived from the mid-16th to early 17th century. Originally published in Latin under the title Historia sui temporis, in 138 books, three years after the author's death. The work, despite controversy over some of its depictions of religious matters, quickly became regarded as a scholarly classic, characterized by exhaustive research and reference to the best available contemporary sources. It would not be translated satisfactorily into other languages for several decades. This was in part due to de Thou's own demand that the work not be translated into French, fearing great faults and errors against the intention of the author. This edition was translated from a critical edition (also in Latin) produced by Samuel Buckley.
