The historie of the world : commonly called, The naturall historie of C. Plinius Secundus by Pliny( Book )

2 editions published between 1601 and 1634 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Holland's monumental English translation of Pliny was dedicated to Sire Robert Cecil, then Queen Elizabeth's Principal Secretary. This encyclopedia of ancient knowledge about the natural world had not been translated into English before, and it would not be again for 250 years. Holland is still the only translator of this work to attempt to evoke it literary richness and beauty."--Note from bookseller

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

1 edition published in 1636 in English and held by 112 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 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ariosto's Orlando Furioso (1532) is the culmination of the chivalric legends of Charlemagne and the Saracen invasion of France, a brilliantly witty parody of the medieval romances, and a fitting monument to the court society of the Italian Renaissance which gave it birth. In a kaleidoscope of scenes and emotions, three principal stories are developed: the love of Orlando for Angelica; the war between the Franks and the Saracens; and the love of Ruggiero, a Saracen, for Bradamant, a Christian. Enlivening and unifying the whole work is the vital personality of the author, endlessly teasing his readers and dropping casual asides about his contemporaries. Though highly serious in purpose and sophisticated in design, Orlando Furioso displays to the full Ariostro's remarkable sense of the absurd. This unabridged prose translation faithfully captures the narrative entire and renders meaning in its lightest shadings."--Back cover
