Later full calf, decorated in blind, gilt-ruled raised spine bands, compartments in blind, marbled enpapers. Light scattered foxing, frontis. lightly chipped, else a very good copy. Wing 3530. Arents 271. Krivatsy 3748. Sabin 23216. Wellcome II, p.537. First published in Latin in 1587, this first edition in English includes parts of Neander's Tobacologia (1622) and is dedicated to "the worthy merchants and planters of Tobacco, for and in the West-Indies and America." From the dedication: "I confes that Tobacco is a plant of Gods making, and it hath many admirable faculties in it, and the fault is not in the leaf, though it be sophisticated by some, and inordinately abused by others; yet there is some reason to suspect, that there hath been much of the cunning of the Devil, and of mans perverse understanding imployed in the large propagation of it, because that Christians, Jews, Turks and Infidels, almost all mankind, who are naturally so averse from all that is good, and prone to nothing but mischief, are so much delighted with it.".
