HELIODORUS. Les amours de Theagene et Chariclee. Histoire Ethiopique. Trad. nouv. [by Jehan de Montlyard]. 2e éd. Paris, S. Thiboust, 1626, (2), 806, (18) pp. W. engr. title-p. and 52 plates by Michel Lasne, J. Briot, Crispin de Passe etc. after Daniel Rabel. Cont. cf., both covers with double gilt fillet border, gilt and ribbed spine. (Bind. sl. worn at spine-ends and lacking spine label, ti.-p. restored in lower right corner and w. 2 tiny wormholes, vaguely waterst. at the beginning and occas. sl. foxed/browned, a few marg. defects such as sm. tears, endpapers renewed, but in all, an acceptable copy).

From the library of the French etcher Emmanuel Phelippes-Beaulieux (Nantes, 1829-1874), with his engr. bookplate on upper pastedown and a tipped-in 2-page description by him in pen between the two free endpapers at the beginning. The rare second edition of this French translation (first: 1623), beautifully illustrated. Heliodorus of Emesa, a Greek writer from the 3rd/4th century, is known for his Aithiopika (Latin: Aethiopica), one of the most famous works of antiquity, endlessly republished or imitated and a great source of inspiration for authors of the Middle-Ages and later.
