At the back of the volume is a section of => rhymed proverbs taken from Alonso Guajardo Fajardo's Proverbios morales (with non-rhyming French). This is the third edition, corrected and expanded, following the first of 1605. The compiler was a French polyglot, grammarian, and translator to King Louis XIII; he holds the distinction of having been the first person to render Don Quixote in French. 8vo (17.4 cm, 6.9").

Faint to moderate waterstaining throughout; scattered small areas of worming, mostly in outer margins but touching a few letters barely. Occasional small pencilled marks of emphasis.
