(De Bussières, Jean:) Flosculi Historici Delibati Nunc Delibatiores Redditi, Sive Historia Universalis [...] Coloniae Agrippinae [Cologne]: apud Andream Bingium, 1661. 2 works bound as 1. 12mo., pp. [iv], 339, [i]; 68 + 12 leaves of plates, each with 6 portraits. Divisional title-page (i.e. ²A1) has 19mm excised at tail edge, seemingly to remove the imprint and date. Light dampstain to lower fore-edge corner of first few leaves, occasional light spots and smudges but generally clean. Contemporary brown calf, a little blind tooling to spine and borders. Rubbed, endcaps and joints worn, corners fraying with some loss to upper fore-edge corner. Much earlier binder's waste (misprinted fragments of a work of the medieval philosopher-theologian Duns Scotus (c.1266-1308)) has been used for the endpapers, which are not pasted to the boards. A very good, unsophisticated copy. Initials M.O. in an old hand to engraved title-page. The engraved title-page reads Universalis Historia ab orbe condito usq[ue] ad annum 1657, and is dated 1660. The last 68 pages, 'Chronologia principum sive series & successio Romanorum pontificum' have a separate title page on leaf ²A1, and separate pagination and signatures. No author given, but Jean de Bussières (1607-1678) is mentioned in other editions.   Ref: 51825  show full image..
