Florence: Nella Stamperia di Giorgio Marescotti, 1579-1580. [The colophon is dated Florence, 1579, but the dedication to Francesco de Medici, is dated April 15, 1580.] 1st edition. Small 4to, 1/2 vellum and purple boards, inked title on spine.[38] 829 [1] pp. Text in Italian. Buoninsegni was a Florentine patrician, merchant and historian. Politically he held some of the city's most important offices and was a member of the broader circle of the early Medici regime. He spent the last ten years of his life completing this Historia Florentine; he died in Florence in March of 1466. The history existed only in manuscript form until its publication in nine volumes between 1579-1637. This 1579-80 edition consists of the first four books available, bound as one, and covers the history of Florence to 1421. The last two volumes, as well as the first complete set, were not published until 1637. Good. Several vintage inked signatures and notes inside front cover, end papers. Small bookplate inside front cover. The original title page is missing and is replaced by a handwritten, inked annotation dated Torino, 1861. The rest of the text block is clean, tight, and bright with no foxing but occasional page toning -- several pages have vintage inked corrections in the margins.
