Le premier [- troisie' me ] livre du Labyrinthe de recre´ation, recerche´ des plus bea ux esprits de ce temps. Rouen: Claude Le Vilain,1602.
Le premier [- troisie' me ] livre du Labyrinthe de recre´ation, recerche´ des plus bea ux esprits de ce temps. Rouen: Claude Le Vilain,1602. 3 volumes in one, 24° (95 x 49mm). Ruled in red throughout. Woodcut title vignette and headpiece to each volume, two decorative initials. Limp brown morocco gilt with yapp edges by Trautz-Bauzonnet, comb-marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Provenance : [Jérôme Bignon (cat. 1848, 1450) -- Marquis de Clinchamp (cat. 1860, 543) -- Félix Solar (cat. 1860, 2147: 'Recueil très rare.') -- François Guyot de Villeneuve (cat. 1900, 706)] -- Pierre Louÿs (cat. 1918, 225; his bibliographical notes tipped in, recording the sale of this copy by Bignon, Clinchamp and Solar when in red morocco, then its appearance at the sale of Guyot de Villeneuve rebound by Trautz; also listing the 3 copies known to him, of which this copy is one). ONE OF ONLY THREE COPIES KNOWN OF THE FIRST EDITION OF THIS COLLECTION OF 238 POEMS, NEARLY HALF OF WHICH ARE BY BAÏF. Tchemerzine meticulously listed the hundred poems attributed to Jean-Antoine Baïf; the others are by Durant de la Bergerie. The book was reprinted in 1603. Brunet affirmed that it was reprinted in 1610 and 1615 under a new title: Labyrinthe d'amour, but in fact this was a different book. (The publisher, Claude Le Vilain extracted 30 poems from the Labyrinthe de Recreation to insert them in the Labyrinthe d'Amour. ) The two other copies known are held by French public institutions: the Bnf and the Musée Condé, Chantilly (Cigongne copy). This superb copy in limp morocco by Trautz, ruled throughout and the only one in private hands, belonged to a prestigious lineage of bibliophiles: Bignon, Clinchamp, Solar, Guyot de Villeneuve and Pierre Louÿs who detailed its provenance in an autograph note. Tchemerzine I, 316-320; Brunet Splt 734: 'Première édition d'un recueil fort rare'; omitted by Lachèvre, Bibliographie des recueils collectifs de poé sies.
