Haerlem: Harman Kranepoe, 1627. Folio. Contemporary calf; raised bands; rear hinge repaired; minor wear to binding. Collation: [16], 940, [12] pp. + numerous woodcuts in text. Title page and several other pages repaired. There is some spotting and staining in text, but general appearance is very good, particularly seen in the strong impression for the woodcuts. Provenance: Ex Libris Jean-Jacob de Gruytere médicin à Menin et de Henri-Marcel Van Mock(sic) date du 17 Février 1755, and Ex Libris Dr. Leboucq. This is another page-for-page reprint of the text of the 1604 edition. The publisher is the same as that of the 1615 edition, his device appearing on both title-pages (Doe, p. 197). Doe also points out that the Dutch editions were fare superior to the “very inferior” Latin edition. In addition, the Dutch editions used the same woodblocks used for the French editions minus “a few historical woodcuts, which the printer left out by …the translator’s advice because they were not instructive and would have encumbered the book…” (Doe, pp.193- 194). Item #0000795
