AUBIN (David, sieur de Morelles)
Les Urnes de Jullie [sic]. Angers, Antoine Hernault, 1618. In-4, lemon morocco, decorated in the style of Du Seuil, spine decorated (modern pastiche binding).
Extremely rare first edition of this poetic collection by an Angevin poet from Ronsault.
Arbour, n°8752, cites 2 copies in France: in Bordeaux and in Angers. We can add the copy of the Sainte-Geneviève library, which is incomplete of the title.
The work, whose title is not without recalling the famous Guirlande de Julie, is the work of an Angevin poet born around 1560 and who died in the 1620s: David Aubin, sieur de Morelles, "impenitent ronsardien at the time of Malherbe and Théophile" (Georges Cesbron in Dix siècles de littérature angevine). It was composed at the end of the 16th century on the death of a beloved beauty but published only 30 years later in Angers.
On the author and his book, see Jean-Pierre Chauveau, "L'Amour en deuil : David Aubin de Morelles" in La Poésie angevine du XVIe siècle au début du XVIIe siècle, 1982.
Marginal restoration to title.
