Hardcover. 406pp. Published 1638. Contemporary calf. Neatly re-hinged, a very good copy. The letters were originally published, in French, in 1624 and met with an extraordinary reception for their eloquence. Such was his reputation that any man who wished to be deemed a man of wit and letters wrote to him for the sole purpose of obtaining a reply. Sometimes he would need to reply to fifty or more at a time, a task which caused him much harassment. In the opinion of Voltaire he was the first person to give harmony and number to French prose.

Hardback. Published 1684. 'Translated into English according to His Majesty's Command, by Mr Dryden.' Full contemporary calf, raised bands, red title-label. Lightly rubbed but a very good copy. Engraved frontspiece. Inner margin of title marked but not touching the text. According to Lowndes, this translation was made, not as Johnson later stated with the hopes of promoting popery but to strengthen the hands of government and to discredit the party who had acted with Lord Shaftesbury.

1674. 13th Edition. Folio. Light soiling to the title, some page numerals cropped mostly around the centre signatures, otherwise a very good copy in later diced-calf re spined with twin labels, gilt. The last edition of Sidney's masterpiece to be printed in the seventeenth century and effectively the last to appear without considerable alteration. It contains Belins sixth book titled seperately, the "Remedie For Love" and Johnston's Supplement to the thrid book. The second of these pieces first appeared in the 10th edition of 1655. None of Sidney's works were published before his death in 1586. The "Arcadia" was begun in 1580 and was probably completed by 1583, three years before his death and five before publication. Wing S3770. An extremely nice copy.
