De B?ze, Th?odore; Muret, Marc-Antoine; Secundus, Joannes: Poemata; Juvenilia; Juvenilia. Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden] [i.e. Paris]: s.n. [Barbou] 1757. Small 8vo. (155 x 90mm), pp. [ii], iv, 124 + portrait frontispiece; x, 11-106 + portrait frontispiece; iv, [i], 4-156. No loss to the 3rd work, just unusual pagination, and no portrait called for. Woodcut printer's device (formerly used by the Elzevirs) to each title-page. Occasional very light foxing. Contemporary brown mottled calf, spine gilt with dark red morocco label, gilt borders and dentelles, a.e.g., marbled endpapers, pink ribbon bookmark bound in. Spine a little creased, very light wear to endcaps and corners, a very good, attractive copy. Three highlights of 16th-century Neo-Latin poetry, bound together as usual. All three title-pages bear a false imprint, 'Lugduni Batavorum'; according to Brunet this edition was actually published in Paris by Barbou, and it does indeed have the appearance of a Barbou book. The first work comprises the poems of the Calvinist theologian Th?odore de B?ze (or Theodorus Beza, 1519-1605,) originally published in Paris in 1548. He is most known for his editions of the New Testament: a Latin translation and a Greek critical edition. The Juvenilia of Marc-Antoine Muret (or Marcus Antonius Muretus, 1526-1585) was first published in 1552. A Classical scholar, as well as writing poetry he lectured in schools in France and Italy and was involved with the rediscovery and interpretation of ancient texts. The final work is that of Janus Secundus Nicolai Hagiensis (1511-1536). The first publication of his works was posthumous, Secundus having died very young, and appeared in Utrecht in 1541. It was edited by his brother Marius. Secundus is primarily remembered for his love poems, often known as the 'kissing poet' for his variations on two kiss poems by Catullus.

De Beka, Johannes & Heda, Wilhelmus: De Episcopis Ultraiectinis, recogniti et notis historicis illustrati ab Arn. Buchelio [?]: Accedunt Lamb. Hortensii [?] Secessionum Ultrajectinarum libri, et Siffridi Petri [?] Appendix ad historiam Ultrajectinam. Utraiecti [Utrecht]: ex officina Ioannis a Doorn, 1643, 1642. First edition. Folio in 6s. 3 parts in 1. pp. [xx], 191, [xv]; [iv], 331, [i]; 12, [xxxii]; [iv], 180, [xxii] + engraved title-page and folding map of Utrecht. With half-title, each part with its own title-page. Additional illustrations in the text of coins and seals. Woodcut initials and endpieces. Occasional very light damp staining at fore-edge, small sporadic worm trail to gutter margin near head. Contemporary vellum, title inked to spine. Spine a bit darkened, a few smudgy marks, very good. A generally very clean copy of the first edition of these famous Dutch medieval chronicles, illustrated by a handsome, double-page engraved map of the provinces. Known as the 'Heda and Beka', they were first published by Suffridus Petri in 1612. Arnoldus Buchelius (1565-1641) worked painstakingly on editing the texts anew, leaving an unfinished manuscript upon his death; his work was finalised by L. van Waveren. The first part provides Johannes de Beka's 14th-century account of the early history of the Netherlands to 1393, with appendixes by later scholars to the year 1456. The second part is Wilhelmus Heda's (d.1525) account of the history of the bishops of Utrecht, with a life of Heda himself. The third features Lambertus Hortensius's 16th-century chronicle of Utrecht, with a life of the author and the text of Pope Clement VII's confirmation of the submission of the province of Utrecht to the Emperor Charles V.
