About this Item

[14],412 pp. + 100 emblem plates, all full page. 12mo., 6 by 4 inches. Decorative devices, head and foot pieces throughout in the form of bouquets, friezes, vases, baskets, as well as decorated letter at the beginning of each section (100 in all). Plates are wonderful baroque woodcuts each illustrating a moral. This would appear to be a second or third edition, the first being in 1646. Brunet II 1658, who describes the work as "now a bit rare", mentions a 1684 edition without citing this earlier one (and clearly meaning a different edition). Graesse III 114 mentions a 1681 edition without detail and thus this might essentially be. Tight. With some light scattered soilage, but overall impression is clean other than on some of the plates a prior owner wrote Latin translations of the maxims beneath the printed captions -- never affecting the pictorial image. Also old handwritten cursive notes on title and blank verso. Attractively rebound in full modern calf with green and red spine labels. Bookseller Inventory # 001262

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
