In 1630, the first edition of Enrico Caterino Davila’s “Historia delle guerre civili di Francia” was published in the Tuscan vernacular in Venice. At this time, Venice was one of the leading centers of printing in the world. Twenty thousand copies were sold during the first year of its publication. The work was translated into Latin, French, Spanish, English, and German and has resurfaced in print many times. During the latter part of the 20th century, a resurgence of interest in Davila took place and the reprint of the 1630 edition was published. This presentation will review selected editions of Davila’s work in order to illustrate a progression of styles which illustrate a shift from the accepted format of works in print as well as the historic developments of the publishing industry.
