The herball, or : Generall historie of plantes by John Gerard( Book )

1 edition published in 1597 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of this work was intended as a tribute for John Norton, the printer who wished to publish an English translation of the famous Dodoens' Herbal. Dr. Priest, a Fellow of the College of Physicians, was commissioned to do this translation. He completed the translation, but died before the book was type set. Norton then selected Gerard as editor due to his reputation in knowing about herbs. Gerard dealt unfairly in editing the work, suppressing the name of Dodoens, only partially crediting Priest, and altering the arrangement of the entire work. Gerard included his own observations on plants he knew well and added localities for British plants. He also added a few cuts, but most of the blocks for the illustrations came from Nicolas Basaeus of Frankfort. They had been previously used for the German Herbal of Tabernaemontanus and were also published separately. The second edition appeared in 1633. It's editor, Thomas Johnson, was more learned than Gerard. He improved the book from a botanical point of view; these improvements were carried through to the third edition of 1636

Orlando Furioso by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

1 edition published in 1634 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this new verse translation of Orlando Furioso ("Mad Orlando"), David R. Slavitt introduces readers to Ariosto's now-neglected masterpiece - a poem whose impact on Western literature can scarcely be exaggerated. Now, through translations of generous selections from this longest of all major European poems, Slavitt brings the poem to life in ways previous translators have nor." "At the heart of Ariosto's romance are Orlando's unrequited love for the pagan princess Angelica and his jealous rage when she elopes. The action takes place against a besieged Paris, as Charlemagne and his Christian paladins defend the city against the Saracen king. The poem, however, obeys no geography or rules but its own, as the story moves by whim from Japan to the Hebrides to the moon; it includes such imaginary creatures as the hippogriff and a sea monster called the orc. Orlando Furioso is Dante's medieval universe turned upside down and made comic. Characterized by satire, parody, and irony, the poem celebrates a new humanistic Renaissance conception of man in an utterly fantastical world. Slavitt's translation captures the energy, comedy, and great fun of Ariosto's Italian."--Jacket
