[Dauphiné] [Provence]. DU PÉRIER (Aymar). Discours historique touchant l'estat général des Gaules. Et principalement des provinces de Dauphiné, & Provence ; tant sous la République & Empire Romain ; qu'en après sous les François, & Bourguignons. Ensemble quelques recherches particulières de certaines villes y estans. Lyon, Barthelemy Ancelin, 1610. One volume in-12, full contemporary vellum, handwritten title and small gilded coat of arms on a basane piece added to the spine. 8 ff. 131 pp. (actually 133, leaf numbers 127 and 128 being repeated). Portrait of the author on verso of the title surrounded by the motto: Nec liberis nec libris vixi satis: "I have lived without ever too many books or too much freedom", a coat of arms on fol. 2 (arms of Aymar du Périer), facing the portrait, and a woodcut in the text (p.17). First edition, uncommon according to Brunet. A very curious work, the fruit of a great deal of research, particularly on the city of DIE and the Voconces palace. Considered the first historical book on the Dauphiné. Aymar Du Périer, born in Die, was lord of Chamaloc, a village near Die, and lord of the fortified house of Arvilliers. He belonged to an ancient family, which, according to the Armorial de Dauphiné, originated in Lyon and is known from 1420. The Dauphiné branch died out with the death of Jacques Du Périer, son of Aymar. He was a member of the Grenoble parliament in the second half of the 16th century, and died in 1591. Small cracks near the headpieces (not serious), laces missing. Very fine worm work in the margins of the first 25 leaves, reaching the text on 3 leaves but without missing text, as well as on the last 3 leaves, with partial loss of 3 characters. One quire partially disbound.
