[Dauphiné]. [DE MAILLES (Jacques) and GODEFROY (Théodore)]. Histoire du chevalier Bayard, lieutenant général pour le Roy au gouvernement de Daulphiné, et de plusieurs choses mémorables advenues en France, Italie, Espagne, & és Pays-Bas, du Règne des Roys Charles VIII, Louys XII, & François I, depuis l'an 1489, iusques à 1524. Seconde édition. Paris, Abraham Pacard, 1619. One volume in-4, full antique hard vellum binding, handwritten title on spine, red speckled edges. Title, 4 ff, portrait, 4 ff, 468 pp, 8 ff. Second edition of the rare, almost unobtainable original edition of 1527, published by "le loyal serviteur", i.e. Jacques de Mailles, a close friend of Bayard. Theodore Godefroy, a Calvinist who converted to Catholicism, edited and annotated this second edition. It features a fine intaglio portrait of Bayard. Rochas II, pp. 438-452 "Godefroy, to whom we owe this edition, has made a large number of changes to the original text; he has removed details that seemed idle, and even entire passages. He has rejuvenated the style." A good copy.
