         EMBLEMATA, CUM ALIQUOT NUMMIS ANTIQUI OPERIS. Bound with: EMBLEMATUS BY ALCIATI.

      Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1564. A VERY EARLY PICTURE OF A TENNIS MATCH, FIRST EDITION 1564. Small 8vo, approximately 175 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, 240 pages, LACKS 4 LEAVES, H6 I7 K4 N8, there are 157 woodcut emblems, should be 166, portrait of Sambucus on page 8, last 4 leaves show medals, PAGE 133 SHOWS THE EARLY ILLUSTRATION OF A TENNIS MATCH WITH THE DECORATED BORDER AND SLIGHTLY BETTER IMPRESSION THAN SOME LATER EDITIONS, bound in later vellum, marbled endpapers, edges stained blue. Binding slightly bowed, crude hand colouring to the title page, portrait and 1 emblem, 4 other emblems have slight pale colouring, pale age-browning throughout, some pale stains to last 60 pages, not offensive, the 4 last leaves showing the medals have pale soiling and spotting, a few tips of corners missing, a few pages at beginning have occasional old ink neat underlining and words translated from Greek to Latin, otherwise a good copy. "The tennis emblem had appeared in Guillaume de la Perrières's Le theatre des bons engins of 1539, and then in the Picta Poesis of Barthélémy Aneau (first edition 1552). Here the emblem is more refined, there is greater form to the rackets and dress of the players, and the tennis balls on the court floor are an important addition. While the net still appears to be a simple rope, two lines of the accompanying poem, 'Temporis iactura' ('A Waste of Time'), draw a comparison between the allure of tennis nets and the more useful nets used in hunting birds. Addressed 'Ad pilulam' ('To the tennis ball'), the poem treats the ball as the deceiver of the young men who waste their time chasing after it". See Christies, London, Sale 3013, lot 155, 28 November 2011; Adams, Volume 2, S-218; Brunet V, 104-05.

         Il Metamorfosi Metallico et Humano

      Brescia - Francesco Marchetti al Segno dell' Ancora, 1564 Book. Good. Hardcover. First edition.. An extremely scarce work on alchemical transformation and allegorical alchemy. This work mostly speaks of the alchemical transformationof metals but also discusses humans. It is an extended allegory in the form of several dreams. The title loosely translates into English as 'Metallic and Human Metamorphosis: Which Contains four Dreams, The first of them and the sophisticated metal mutation, the second of the real transformation or the alchemy of metals; the third of physical transformation of human bodies and the fourth of the spiritual transformation in Christ: new in light to useful, and commodious of every curious ingenuity. 'Through the dreams the author meets several symbolic figures who lead him to realise the errors, deceptions and falsehoods of alchemy. The first edition of this work. Later editions of this work were titled Della Tramutatione Metallica Sogni Tre. . and issued in 1572 and 1599. In the original Italian. With only one of the original two full page woodcuts to this work. In addition to this full page woodcut there is a printer's colophon to the verso of title page and an illuminated letter to the first leaf of text. Collated, lacking leaves G3 and G4 and therefore numbered pages 27 and 28. To the verso of leaf G4 is a full page illustration which is therefore missing from the work as above. Very little is known about Nazari, buthe was asixteenth centuryalchemist. He has been mentioned through historyby other fellow alchemists. An extremely early and fascinatingwork on alchemy. This very scarce work is likely to have been extremely influential in the forthcominginflux of works in the field of alchemical allegories at the start of the seventeenth century. Condition: In paper covered boards. Externally, rubbed to the extremities and spine. Label to the tail of spine. Marks to boards. Small piece of paper adhered to the front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Prior owner's inscription to the title page. Small closed tear to the title page at the top. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned. Spotting to the endpapers and occasional spots to pages, heavier to the first and last few pages. Prior owner's correction to the word 'edera' to page 21. Lacking two leaves, G3 and G4, therefore pages 27-28. Overall: GOOD..

      Folio (30 x 40 cm). Titelbl. in Rot- und Schwarzdruck u. m. gest. Titelvignette (F. Ottens inv. et fecit), 2 Bll., 6 S. (Leeven Beschryving), 2 Bll., 79 (dav. 1 in dplt. Ausführung, dav. 1 in Chiaroscuro-Technik) [von 172] gest. Kupfertstich-Tafeln (gest. v. Frederick Bloemaert nach Abraham Bloemaert). Späterer Halbpergamentband m. marmor. Überzugspapier. Einband mit leichten Stellspuren, durchgeh. etw. abgegriffen, einzelne Tafeln mit fachmännisch unterlegten Randrissen. Der niederländische Maler Abraham Bloemaert (1564-1651) verfaßte eine Reihe von Anleitungen zum Zeichnen, die, oft mit Übungsblättern angereichert, im 17. und weit bis ins 18. Jahrhundert hinein in immer neuen Auflagen verbreitet waren. Hier vorliegend die als beste geltende Ausgabe des berühmten Lehrbuchs der Zeichenkunst in der Abraham?s jüngster Sohn, Frederick Bloemaert (1610-1669), die Tafeln nach den Vorlagen seines Vaters gestochen hat. Die Anordnung für diese Ausgabe besorgte der berühmte französische Stecher und Buchillustrator Bernard Picart. Die Tafeln sind unterteilt in 8 Abteilungen (jeder Teil mit eigenem gest. Titel, von denen in unserem Ex. nur einer vorhanden ist): I. Köpfe & Gesichter / II. Hände & Füße / III. Figuren / IV. Männlich & weibliche Aktdarstellungen / V. Kinder / VI. Figuren & Gruppen / VII.

This work consists mostly of academic drawing examples with depictions of both parts of the body and of the human figure as a whole. Bloemaert?s drawing examples are not derived from those of other authors. They represent the fruits of a life of industrious study in academies and after nature. Each individual example bears the unmistakable stamp of Bloemaert. It is not a method or a system of construction which is being offered as an example, but the maniera of the great and respected master himself... " (Bolten, Jaap. Method and Practice: Dutch and Flemish Drawing Books, 1600-1750. Ss. 57ff:). - Abraham Bloemaert ging 1611 nach Utrecht, wo er mit seinem Atelier als der Begründer der Utrechter Malschule gilt. Er übte mit seinem Schaffen bedeutenden Einfluss auf die holländische Malerei aus. Er gilt gleichsam als Vermittler zwischen der flämischen und der holländischen Schule. - Unser Exemplar enthält folgende Tafeln: 2-39, 51-59, 61-68, 97, 98, 100-117 u. 156-159. Die übrigen Tafeln fehlen, ebenso das gestochene Frontispiz, das gestochene Porträt des Autors und die gestochene Widmung.

      Venice, Giordano Ziletti, 1564. - 4to (165 x 242 mm). 3 parts in one volume, each with its own title page. (8), 358, (2) pp. (56) pp., with 64 double-page engraved plates with letterpress descriptions on versos, all mounted on guards. 47, (1), (48) pp. (a few gatherings misbound near end, but complete).

The second edition of Ptolemy's Geography translated by Ruscelli, reprinted from the 1561 edition: "a new and important edition in Italian, with a new series of maps" (Stevens). The 64 maps are the same as those of the previous edition, and reproduce the same irregular numbering: apart from the 27 traditional Ptolemaic maps, this edition boasts 37 new ones, including three maps of the world, showing the earth according to the description of Ptolemy ("tutta la terra conosciuta fin' à tempi di Tolomeo") and as it was viewed after the discovery of America ("Tavola universal nuova", in two hemispheres), with a separate navigation map ("carta marina nuova tavola"). "This is the first time that such a representation (double-hemispherical world map) had been used in an atlas" (Shirley 110). Among the "new" maps, the most remarkable ones are those of India, South-East Asia and of America, offering some of the earliest depictions of the newly-discovered continent; other maps include Arabia, Asia Minor, Greece, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, and North and South Africa. Ten of the old Ptolemaic series show Europe, four show Africa, and twelve Asia. - Text and plates rules throughout in brown ink. Slight worming to gutter and guards (barely touching a few of the maps). Binding slightly rubbed; extremeties and spine professionally repaired. A paper flaw to the upper right corner of a single plate (Europa antica V), not touching the image. A pretty, clean copy. Edit 16, CNCE 41068. BM-STC Italian 543. Phillips 373 (and cf. Le Gear 5915).

He also set out to explain how teeth develop, and offered suggestions on how to treat various dental diseases.The volume also includes the first specific treatise on the kidney, the first account of the Eustachian tube in the ear, the first description of the thoracic duct, and the Eustachian valve.Garrison-Morton, 3668; DSB, IV, pp. 486-88; Hoffmann-Axthelm, pp. 141-42..

(As the publisher's information is already given on the title-page, this was an extra, as from before the early 16th century, this was where the information was to be found. Over this transitional period the publishers would sometimes give the information both on the title-page and at the rear. Often, as in this case, there were discrepencies.) Vol. II: [vi], 571. Vol. III: [iv], 540, [2]pp errata. Vol. IV: [iv], 806 + 2 blank leaves. Woodcut borders to title-pages depicting the seals of the four evangelists and of Luther and Elector Johann Friedrich worshipping the crucified Christ; on verso of Vol. II title, and on leaf following titles in Vols. III & IV, are woodcuts depicting three Saxon princes and their coats of arms; woodcut initials, many of cherubs, engraved decorations. Uniformly bound in contemporary blind-stamped vellum over wooden boards, highly decorated with a central portrait of Luther to upper and lower bds of all volumes. Raised bands, later morocco spine labels with text in gilt. One whole original metal clasp remains to volume IV but all the upper boards retain the upper metal catch. The vellum is worn and soiled but the bindings are sound. The lower board to volume I has been sympathetically restored with a patch of later vellum, possibly 17th/18th century. Each volume has a small neat bookplate from the C.M. College Library at Bala and there is one stamp to the front free e/p but these are 19th century and do not detract. There is some worming to vol. I but it does not affect the reading of the text. There is occ. contemporary underlining and signatures to title-pages. This set is sound. Pictures are available on request. The first complete edition of Luther's works was published at Wittemburg under the auspices of the Elector of Saxony between 1539 and 1559. Those in Latin were in four volumes and those in German in eight. These were subsequently reprinted at both Wittemberg and Jena. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First Breugel edition of the "nieu geusen liet boeck", the most popular songbook of the Dutch Republic with songs about the victories against Spain and satirical songs against the papists. The name "geuzen" was adopted by the Dutch who opposed the Spanish rule in the Netherlands. Most of the songs probably originated from one-leaf prints and pamphlets with popular songs about military events, rhymed news reports, and propaganda songs. The songbook also contains "Wilhelmus van Nassaue", the Dutch national anthem, and many other songs with a nationalistic or Calvinistic character. Most of the songs were written anonymously, but the book also includes song by Coornhert, Lucas d'Heere, Arent Dircsz. Vos, Jan Fruytiers and Dirck Adriaensz.

Small 8vo, approximately 175 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, 240 pages, LACKS 4 LEAVES, H6 I7 K4 N8, there are 157 woodcut emblems, should be 166, portrait of Sambucus on page 8, last 4 leaves show medals, PAGE 133 SHOWS THE EARLY ILLUSTRATION OF A TENNIS MATCH WITH THE DECORATED BORDER AND SLIGHTLY BETTER IMPRESSION THAN SOME LATER EDITIONS, bound in later vellum, marbled endpapers, edges stained blue. Binding slightly bowed, crude hand colouring to the title page, portrait and 1 emblem, 4 other emblems have slight pale colouring, pale age-browning throughout, some pale stains to last 60 pages, not offensive, the 4 last leaves showing the medals have pale soiling and spotting, a few tips of corners missing, a few pages at beginning have occasional old ink neat underlining and words translated from Greek to Latin, otherwise a good copy. "The tennis emblem had appeared in Guillaume de la Perrières's Le theatre des bons engins of 1539, and then in the Picta Poesis of Barthélémy Aneau (first edition 1552). Here the emblem is more refined, there is greater form to the rackets and dress of the players, and the tennis balls on the court floor are an important addition. While the net still appears to be a simple rope, two lines of the accompanying poem, 'Temporis iactura' ('A Waste of Time'), draw a comparison between the allure of tennis nets and the more useful nets used in hunting birds. Addressed 'Ad pilulam' ('To the tennis ball'), the poem treats the ball as the deceiver of the young men who waste their time chasing after it".

         [OPERA] CON L'ESPOSITIONI DI CHRISTOFORO LANDINO, et D'Alessandro Vellutello. Sopra la sua Comedia dell'Inferno, del Purgatorio, del Paradiso. Con tavole, argomenti, & allegorie, & riformato, riveduto, & ridotto alla sua vera lettura, per Francesco Sansovino Fiorentino

      Venice: Giovambattista Marchio Sessa, & fratelli, 1564. First of the Edition, First Sansovino edition, First edition with a portrait of Dante. With a fine woodcut title page and 96 woodcut illustrations, including three full-page, 77 large cuts in the text. Of the cuts, there are 37 for the Inferno, 24 for Purgatorio, and 27 for Paradiso, and numerous head- and tailpieces. Printer's woodcut device on the final leaf. Folio, very fine and handsome antique Italian calf, the spine with raised bands ruled in gilt, there is a single red/brown morocco label gilt lettered and ruled. [28 ff.), 163, [4 ff.], 164-393 pp. A very handsome and very well preserved copy in a very pleasing state of preservation. Rare in full antique calf. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THIS HISTORIC PRINTING OF ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS IN THE MIND OF MAN. This is the first edition of Dante edited by Francisco Sansovino, incorporating two commentaries: that of Christoforo Landino, which first appeared in the Florentine edition of 1481, and the noteworthy commentary of Alessandro Velutello, first published at Venice in 1544. The volume includes extensive introductory matter by all three commentators, and a running commentary that virtually overwhelms the poem itself. The woodcuts in this edition are taken from those in Velutello's edition of 1544 and represent a departure, both iconographically and stylistically, from those in the Brescia, 1487 edition--they appear more accomplished and more confident in execution. Francesco Sansovino recovered Vellutello?s commentary, never printed in Italy again until this time (except for a Lyonese reprint of 1551). This edition, printed here first in 1564, is very important because it is richly illustrated with many woodcuts taken from the edition of 1544 printed by Marcolini. The portrait of Dante on the title-page, inspired in Vasari?s tradition, is quite famous and this edition is commonly known as ?of the big nose?. The portrait most likely comes from two paintings by Vasari, now at the Oriel College of Oxford and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Cleveland.

         Venere punta dalle spine

      1564 - Bulino, 1564, datato e firmato "Gas/ .P. F. /1564" su una tavoletta sotto il piede di Cupido; su un’altra tavoletta, in basso al centro, l’iscrizione L./PENIS/.R./.IN.' Da un soggetto di Luca Penni. Nel margine inferiore, due distici in latino 'Mortiferis spinis toto sum corpore loesa./Purpurea estq. meo sanguine facta rosa./Dulcis amor causa est: sed nil mea vulnera curo./Eripiam crudis dum puerum manibus'. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre, con l’indirizzo di Antonio Lafrery aggiunto in basso a destra all’excudit di Niccolò Nelli posto al centro, tra i due distici. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata, con filigrana non leggibile, completa della linea marginale, una piega di carta sul margine sinistro, verso il basso, nel complesso in eccellente stato di conservazione. Questa magnifica incisione, è una copia, nello stesso verso e all’incirca delle stesse dimensioni, di un bulino di Giorgio Ghisi, datata 1556. Si tratta di una delle sei incisioni, finora conosciute, che nel 1564 Gaspar ab Avibus dal suo maestro Giorgio Ghisi. L’inventor dichiarato del soggetto è Luca Penni, pittore e disegnatore. Alla lettera "Sono ferita i tutto il corpo da spine mortali/ e col il mio sangue ho reso purpurea la rosa/ l’Amore ne è la causa, ma non mi preoccupo delle ferite/ finchè (non) strapperò dalle mani crudeli il fanciullo. Nell’incisione è raffigurata in primo piano Venere, con i piedi immersa nell’acqua che osserva di nascosto la scena sullo sfondo con Adone inseguito da Marte. I versi chiariscono l’immagine: "Sono ferita i tutto il corpo da spine mortali/ e col il mio sangue ho reso purpurea la rosa/ l’Amore ne è la causa, ma non mi preoccupo delle ferite/ finchè (non) strapperò dalle mani crudeli il fanciullo." Venere è stata punta da alcune spine e il suo sangue ha colorato di rosso una rosa. La dea però non si cura delle ferite perché ha in animo di salvare il giovane e amato Adone dalle "mani crudele" di Marte. Secondo alcune versioni del mito infatti, la dea di punge con una spina di rosa mentre sta correndo in soccorso di Adone inseguito da Marte e macchiate dal sangue della dea, le rose da bianche diventarono rosse. Engraving, 1564, inscrideb on a tablet lower right "Gas/ .P. F. /1564". Inscribed on a tablet lower centre: '.L./PENIS/.R./.IN.', and in the lower margin with a Latin poem of two distychs: 'Mortiferis spinis toto sum corpore loesa./Purpurea estq. meo sanguine facta rosa./Dulcis amor causa est: sed nil mea vulnera curo./Eripiam crudis dum puerum manibus'. Example in the second state, of three, with "Ant. Lafrerij Formis" added in the bottom right corner to the inscription "Niccolaus /Nelli exc" in a diamond in center of bottom margin. Magnificent example, rich tones and good contrast, printed on laid paper with an unidentified watermark, complete of the marginal line, a paper fold in the left margin, overall in excellent condition. This magnificent work is a copy, in the same direction and about the same size, after Giorgio Ghisi’engraving, dated 1556. It is one of six engravings, so far known, that in 1564 Gaspar ab Avibus made after his teacher Giorgio Ghisi. The composition for this print is based on a design (now lost) by Luca Penni, who in turn was influenced by an episode in the Hypnerotomachia Polifili, as can be seen in the poses of the three main figures. In this episode, Venus scratches her leg upon a rosebush, while Mars attacks Adonis. It is the blood of Venus which transforms the white rose to red. The Latin inscription at the bottom of this Ghisi print gives us a clue as to what is happening: "With deadly thorns I have been wounded in my whole body, and the rose has become purple through my blood/ Sweet love is the cause, but in no way do I care for my wounds [i.e., I won't attend to my wounds at all] Until I rescue the boy from cruel hands" A very rare work G. Streliotto, Gaspar ab Avibus, p. 24 n. 4; Bartsch XV, 400 n. 40; Lewis, p. 95 n. 22; Bellini, pp. 129-13

         L’Isola Spagnola & L’Isola Cuba

      Venezia 1564 - Coppia di incisioni, 1564, datate e firmate in lastra. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti l’indirizzo di Pietro de Nobili. Incisioni al bulino, magnifiche prove impresse su un unico foglio di carta vergata coeva con filigrana "agnello nel cerchio", con ampli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La fonte cartografica di queste due mappe è tuttora sconosciuta; se le fonti cartografiche ed i toponimi nelle mappe derivano dalla precedenti di Gastaldi (1548) e Ruscelli (1561), la morfologia delle isole è assolutamente differente e risulta molto distorta. Un recente articolo sulle opere di Paolo Forlani uscito su Map Forum, numero 11, descrive tre stati delle mappe, di cui il secondo con le iniziali nel cartiglio di Ferrando Bertelli. Tuttavia ci sentiamo di dissentire da questa ipotesi, in quanto le due carte del Bertelli sono molto simili ma realizzate con un’altra lastra. Come giustamente fa notare Meurer la tavola del Bertelli è copiata da questo modello di Paolo Forlani. Magnifico esemplare. Two maps on one sheet, 1564, signed and dated on the plate. Example in the first state of two, before the address of Peter de Nobili. Beautiful engravings printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "Lamb in the circle", with wide margins, in excellent conditions. The cartographic source of these two maps is unknown; but if the cartographic sources in the maps and place names are derived from previous Gastaldi (1548) and Brooks (1561), the morphology of the islands is very different. A recent article about Forlani published on Map Forum, n. 11, describes three states of these maps, and the second presents a cartouche with the initials of Ferrando Bertelli. However we would like to disagree with this hypothesis, since the two maps by Bertelli are very similar but printed from a different plate. Meurer shows Bertelli’s example, after this model of Paolo Forlani.

         En candidi Lectores, elegantioris Italiae partis, Tusciae scilicet Topographiam

      Roma 1564 - - RARISSIMO ESEMPLARE DELLA TIRATURA GRAZIANI/DE NOBILI - In alto a destra, in una targa incorniciata da fregi, una breve descrizione ai lettori del territorio rappresentato En candidi Lectores, elegantioris Italiae partis, Tusciae scilicet Topographiam, aeneis n[ost]ris formis excussam in hac Tabella vobis denuo damus, atque ita quidem absolute, ut nihil amplius, in ea desiderali possit, praesertim quod, cum adiacentibus Umbriae, Aemiliae, Lombardiae, et Liguriae partibus ad unguem fuerit effigiata. In qua conficienda haec nos praestare conati sumus, ut singulas urbes, oppida, Montes, Flumina, Lacus, Portus, Insulsas, et memoratu digna Littoribus maris Tusci adiacentia promontoria diligentissime describeremus. Quae omnia ab his qui oculata fide nobis cuncta retulerunt didicimus. Non Vos pigeat igitur optimi Lectores ha[n]c Tabellam paulum ociose contemplari sigermani et exactam Tusciae descriptionem intelligere desideratis. Romae Anno M.D.LXIIII. In basso a destra, la scala grafica di 30 miglia pari a mm 85, sotto l’iscrizione Locorum distantiam sic inuenies Aperto Circino cape quaesiti loci distantiam e amque ad lineas has applica, mox lineolae cercini pedibus inclusae maioresque secantes militaria in dìcabunt, quod si distantia inuenta maior ipsa linea sit, per partes re expedire oportebit. Orientazione nei quattro lati al centro, con il nome dei venti TRAMONTANA, OSTRO, LEVANTE, PONENTE. La graduazione ai margini è disegnata, ma senza riportarne i valori. Acquaforte e bulino, con margini, restauri perfettamente eseguiti visibili al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Altra derivazione della Toscana del Bellarmati. Questa tavola è molto simile alla carta del Salamanca edita a Roma nel 1560 circa, e una delle poche da lui firmate mentre era in società con il Lafreri. La mappa che descriviamo, edita a Roma quattro anni dopo, per quanto riguarda i dati geo-cartografici mostra poche differenze con la precedente, mentre si notano alcuni cambiamenti nelle decorazioni, il disegno della scala grafica è spostato (ma è priva anche qui delle miglia), nel mare non ci sono imbarcazioni mentre, invece, la descrizione del territorio raffigurato è la medesima, anche se in questa ultima la si trova distribuita in parte nel cartiglio e in parte sotto la scala grafica. Siamo portati a pensare che la tavola in esame sia stata ristampata dal Lafreri da un nuovo rame, dopo lo scioglimento della società con Francesco Salamanca (1563 circa) che era succeduto al padre. La carta è rarissima: ne abbiamo riscontrato un esemplare del primo stato alla Biblioteca Nazionale di Firenze e in una collezione privata, e due copie alla Newberry Library e alla Biblioteca Nazionale di Roma. Il secondo stato, firmato da Pietro de Nobili ePaolo Graziani, e databile circa al 1582, è alla National Library of Malta.

        De morbo gallico [sic] liber absolutissimus a Petro Angelo Agatho Materate.Additus etiam est in calce de Morbo Callico tractatus, Antonii Fracanciani Bononiae in loco eminentis scientiae faeliciter legentis

      Lucam Bertellum; Christopher Gryphium, Padua 1564 - Title page to each work. Three lovely woodblock text initials. Half-calf with paper boards; some leaves lightly water-stained along lower corners, otherwise an excellent copy. First edition of two rare treatises on syphilis. "In this classic work on 'the French disease,' Fallopius wrote more knowingly of the Europe-wide scourge of syphilis than previous authors on the subject and was one of the first to oppose the use of mercury in its treatment." Posthumously printed, Fallopius (1523-1562) was a surgeon and professor at Ferrar, Pisa and Padua where he succeeded his own teacher Vesalius. He here asserts his belief that syphilis was brought to Europe from America by the associates of Columbus, and strongly recommends the use of guaiac wood for its cure, though he also mentions certain other remedies.The second treatise on the same subject is by Fracanzano (1500?-1569), who became professor of medicine at Padua in 1539.There is a variant issue of De morbo dated 1563 on the title (although the colophon is dated 1564). The two versions differ only in the resetting of the date on the title. OCLC locates 9 copies total of both variants in America.
