Caspar Rutz, Mecheln 1581. Jean-Jacques Boissard (1528 - October 30, 1602) fu un antiquario francese e un poeta. Nacque a Besançon e fu educato a Leuven, ma disgustato dal suo istruttore, lasciò segretamente il seminario e viaggiò attraverso la Germania per arrivare in Italia, dove rimase numerosi anni, spesso ridotto in povertà. Il tempo rascorso in Italia lo educò al gusto per l'antiquariato. Visitò quindi le isole greche finchè una grave malattia non l'obbligò a tornare a Roma. Completata la sua collezione di artefatti antichi romani, tornò in Francia, ma non potendo praticare la religione Protestante, si trasferì a Metz, dove rimase fino alla sua morte. Julius Goltzius era il figlio di Hubrecht Goltzius, e divenne egli stesso pittore. Non si sa molto di lui tranne che si sposò ad Anversa il 27 settembre 1581 e morì circa nel 1595. Le sue maggiori opere furono le incisioni dei quattro Evangelisti sono conservati al "Dutch Renaissance History Painting". Jean-Jacques Boissard (1528 - October 30, 1602) was a French antiquary and Latin poet. He was born at Besançon and educated at Leuven; but disgusted by the severity of his master, he secretly left the seminary there, and travelled through Germany to Italy, where he remained several years and was often reduced to poverty. His time in Italy gave him a taste for antiquities, and he soon formed a collection of curious artefacts from Rome and its vicinity. He then visited the islands of Greece, but a severe illness obliged him to return to Rome. Here he resumed his favourite pastimes, and having completed his collection, returned to France; but not being permitted to profess publicly the Protestant religion, which he had embraced some time before, he withdrew to Metz, where he remained till his death. Julius Goltzius was the son of Hubrecht Goltzius, himself a painter of "History Paintings" and followed in his father's and his teachers' footsteps. We know little about him save that he was married in Anvers / Antwerp on 27 September 1581 and died about 1595. His engravings of the four Evangelists are in the mainstream of Dutch Renaissance History Painting and the needs of the print market in the late 16th century in a country in revolt from King Philip II of Spain, their hereditary ruler but a Catholic, and riven by civil war between Catholics and Protestants. The choice of subject matter is appropriate for Catholics but would also especially appeal to Protestants seeking a biblically-based religion. Although Goltzius has been identified as the son of Hendrick Goltzius, Benezit rejects that assertion. According to the St. Matthew and St Mark engravings, the works are based upon drawings by Anthonie Blocklandt, a pupil of Frans Floris and an artist influenced by Parmigianino during a 7-month trip to Italy; in 1577, he entered into the Painter's Guild in Utrecht in 1577. The works were published by Hans II Liefrinck, a painter, engraver, and print publisher active in Anvers from 1581 on. Graesse p. 454 16mo secolo

Impressão com todas as páginas com a composição trajada de filetes. A secção em portugues com folha de rosto e paginação próprias. Por norma, mas erradamente, esta obra vem descrita na bibliografia como sendo dois espécimes bibliográficos diferentes, mas na verdade trata-se evidentemente de um só espécimen bibliográfico, como facilmente se pode verificar pelos cadernos que correm seguidos de A a S. Exemplar com assinatura de posse coeva na folha de rosto de Dr. Frei Gerardo das Chagas, (provávelmente o que foi Prior e Abade Geral do Mosteiro de Alcobaça de 1592 a 1594). Fr. Bartolomeu Ferreira foi o famoso censor da primeira edição dos Lusíadas. Curiosamente as duas secções da obra não coincidem exatamente, sendo provavelmente a versão latina emanada de Roma, pois tem uma bula ao papa Pio IV e aprovação de 1564, estando a segunda secção adaptada em português dedicada arcebispo de Lisboa e inquisidor-mor de Portugal D. Jorge de Almeida por Fr. Bartolomeu Ferreira. Azevedo e Samodães 1607. "Excelente e mui nítida impressão; todas as pags. adornadas de moldura constituída por dois largos filetes.

Illustrated at title pages with the heraldic coat-of-arms of the Archbishop of Lisbon and Grand Inquisitor of Portugal D. Jorge de Almeida. Printed (in all pages) inside typographical frames. The Portuguese part of the work with has its own title page. Generally (but wrongly) this work is described as two different bibliographic specimens, but in fact it a single release, as can be seen easily by printed notes running straight from A to S. Ownership title at frontispice from Dr. Fray Gerado das Chagas (most probably the the one that was the Abbot from the Alcobaça Monastery from 1592 to 1594). Fray Bartholomew Ferreira was the famous censor of the first edition of The Lusiads of Camoes. The two sections of the book do not match exactly, and probably the Latin version was from Rome, it has a Bulla of Pope Pius IV and approval in 1564, with a second section adapted dedicated to the Portuguese archbishop of Lisbon by Fray Bartholomew Ferreira.

Provenance: Turin, Minorites of St. Thomas (library stamps on first page of dedication and inscription on free front endpaper). A very good, unstained and unmarked copy in untouched original binding. ---- Adams C-2098; BL/STC Italian p. 126; Houzeau-Lancaster 11383; Lalande p 112; Zinner, Astronom. Instrumente, 281. Honeyman 706; De Backer-S. II, 1220, 3; DSB III, 311. - FIRST EDITION of this masterwork on the theory and construction of sundials. Clavius considers the astronomical background, the geometrical theory and the various construction methods of the sundial, a topic which occupied many mathematicians in this period. The problems of sundial construction were related to those of the studies of perspective and shadows, which were also of interest to painters such as Albrecht Dürer. The Latin name Christopher Clavius is the only name known of this Jesuit mathematician and astronomer, whose given name in German has been lost to time. He was born in Bamberg, and joined the Jesuit order in 1555. He studied at the Collegio Romano, and in 1579 was assigned the task of determining a way to adjust the calendar to keep it in line with the actual seasons of the year. The result, built on the work of Erasmus Reinhold and Aloysius Lillius, was a reformed calendar that was endorsed by Pope Gregory XIII. Adopted in 1582, the Gregorian Calendar is still in use as the common calendar of the Western world today. "Sums up all that was known on gnomonics" (Honeyman), "le plus grand ouvrage existant sur la gnomonique" (Houzeau and Lancaster). Erste Ausgabe. - Hauptwerk des Christoph Clavius (1538-1612) über die Sonnenuhren, in dem der "Euklid seines Zeitalters" seine astronomischen Forschungen über den Sonnenstand und die daraus resultierende Zeitmessung und Kalenderrechnung darlegt sowie Anleitungen zur Konstruktion von Sonnenuhren gibt. "Er trat in den Jesuitenorden, studirte in Coimbra (wo er 1596 eine Sonnenfinsterniss beobachtete, bei der nach seiner Angabe die Dunkelheit so gross war, dass er seine Schritte nicht hat sehen können), war 14 Jahre Lehrer der Mathematik am Collegium seines Ordens in Rom, stand wegen seiner Gelehrsamkeit in hohem Ansehen und stieg bis zum Cardinal empor. Er wurde ... vom Papst Gregor XIII zur Kalenderverbesserung berufen ... und (hat) über die Verbesserung einen erbitterten Streit mit Scaliger, Calvisius und Maestlin geführt" (ADB IV, 298). - Die zahlreichen Textholzschnitte zeigen Sonnenuhren, Sonnenräder, Messtabellen und Instrumente, Schemen zu Planetenbahnen, Strahlenreflexionen und vieles mehr. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        Kitab al-Jawami - French]. Apomazar des significations et evenemens des songes, selon la doctrine des Indiens, Perses et Egyptiens.

      Paris, Jean Houzé (de l'imprimerie de Denys du-Val), (6 Oct.) 1581. - 8vo. (8), 312, (8) pp. With woodcut device to title page. Contemporary limp vellum. Extremely rare French edition of the "Kitab al-Jawami", an Arabic work on the interpretation of dreams by an "Achmet, son of Seirim" - almost certainly identical with the 8th century Muslim mystic Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Sirin. The work survived in a Greek translation ("Biblion oneirokritikon") prepared in the 12th century. This is the French translation of Leunclavius's Latin edition, published by Wechel at Frankfurt in 1577: Leunclavius had erroneously attributed the work to "Apomazar" (Albumasar, i.e. Ga`far Abu Ma`sar al-Balhi), which mistake he later acknowledged, though it is repeated by the present edition. "The author Ahmed served as interpreter of dreams to Caliph Al-Mamun around 820 [.] The mediaeval conflation of medicine with astrology originated with the Arabs. Through the Salernitanian school, which had many Arabic works translated, the notion reached Europe in the 11th century, where it remained predominant as late as the 17th and 18th century [.] In 1577 J. Loewenklau published a Latin translation of the Oneirokritiká of Ahmed, whom he calls Apomasar" (Schöll). - Some waterstains and edge flaws, especially to the first and last leaves. 17th c. handwritten ownership of the Discalced Carmelites of Bordeaux on title page; a few old annotations in ink. Several small defects to the vellum binding have been repaired. While the 1577 Latin edition (which Caillet calls "rarissime") has been auctioned three times since 1959, no copy of the present French edition is known in auction records internationally. Caillet I, 153 (note). Graesse, Bibl. mag. et pneum. 97 ("1580" in error). OCLC 1218171. Not in Adams or BM-STC French. Cf. GAL I, 66. Schöll, Geschichte der griechischen Literatur III, 487.

        De DIE. NATALI liber ad. Q. Caerellium. [Du Jour natal].

      Venise, Apud Aldum, 1581. - Petit in-8 de (8) ff. dont le titre avec le portrait en médaillon d'Alde Manuce, 84 pp., 40 ff.(notes et index), 2 ff. blc. Basane brune marbrée du XVIII ème siècle, filet doré d'encadrement, dos à nerfs orné. Petit accident à une coiffe et un mors. L’édition princeps parut à Bologne, en 1497. Alde donna une première édition de ce texte en 1528, puis celle-ci par Alde le Jeune et annotée par ses soins. Censorinus, grammairien et philosophe du IIIe siècle, florissait à Rome sous les règnes d’Alexandre Sévère, de Maximien et de Gordien. Ce fut vers l’an 991 de la fondation de Rome, ou 238 de l’ère chrétienne, sous le consulat d’Ulpius et de Pontianus, ainsi qu’il nous l’apprend lui-même (ch. XXI), que Censorinus écrivit ce petit, mais curieux ouvrage, qu’il intitula de Die natali, moins sans doute à cause des matières qu’il y traitait, que parce qu’il l’avait composé à l’occasion de l’anniversaire de la naissance de Quintus Cerellius, Aussi bien notre auteur y parle-t-il non seulement de l’histoire naturelle de l’homme, mais encore de la musique, des rites religieux, de l’astronomie, de la chronologie, des années, des mois et des jours chez les Romains et les diverses nations. Quoi qu’il en soit, ce petit livre a été de la plus grande utilité aux chronologistes, pour déterminer les principales époques des événements anciens. Brunet I, 1731

        DE AUTORIBUS INTERPRETANDIS, SIVE DE EXERCITATIONE

      Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1581. FIRST EDITION. This is a short treatise on the art of poetry by Spanish philologist and humanist Francisco Sanchez De Las Brozas (1523-1600), a professor of Greek and rhetoric at the University of Salamanca. Voet, noting that the work was printed at a time when the Netherlands--where Plantin had his press--was in revolt against Spain, suggests that it may have been commissioned for the Spanish market by Plantin's former employee Joannes Pulmannus, who was establishing himself as a bookseller in Salamanca. Plantin printed a short Greek grammar by Sanchez the same year, and a Latin grammar in 1582. Christopher Plantin (1520-89) set up shop in Antwerp as a bookbinder in 1549, but he turned to printing in 1555 and soon rose to the top of his trade, both as a printer and type designer. He produced, among a great many things, the celebrated Antwerp Polyglot Bible of 1569-72 and a steady stream of emblem books. In 1575, he employed nearly 150 workers, who helped to keep more than 20 presses going, and for a time, he established premises in Paris and Leyden. This is not a widely held work: OCLC finds just four in North American libraries (Huntington, University of Illinois, University of Pennsylvania, Boston Athenaeum). ABPC and Rare Book Hub locate no copies at auction in the past 40 years.. 168 x 100 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). 28 pp., [2] leaves (final blank). FIRST EDITION. Late 19th century tan calf, covers with blind-ruled frame, flat spine with vertical titling. Voet 2176. Joints and extremities lightly rubbed, a few small, dark spots to boards, leaves a shade less than bright, other minor imperfections internally, but certainly a very good copy, the binding scarcely worn, and the text clean and fresh.

        I Quattro Libri di Architettura (The Four Books of Architecture)

      Venice: Bartholomeo Carampello, 1581. Rare second edition after the first of 1570, "the most studied of the architectural treatises of the Renaissance" (Millard). Folio, bound in full morocco, gilt tooling of Renaissance-style panel design, spine ends. General and divisional titles within woodcut historiated architectural border; profusion of woodcut illustrations, mostly full-page. 67, [1]; 78, [2]; 46, [2]; 133, [1] (of [3]) pages, including blank 2K4. Four parts in one volume. In excellent condition with light rubbing and wear, some leaves toned. A very nice example. First published in Italian in 1570, Palladio's treatise popularized classical decorative details, becoming what is probably the most influential architectural book ever printed. Incorporating many of his own designs to illustrate the principles of classical Roman architecture, Palladio strongly influenced 18th-century architecture in the British Isles, Italy and America. While Palladio's work was the most common architectural book owned by designers and builders, it was difficult to obtain in America. Thomas Jefferson commented in 1804 that "there never was a Palladio here [in Washington] even in private hands till I brought one... the chance of getting one in America is slender.

        LE SECOND TOME DES HISTOIRES TRAGIQUES, EXTRAITES, QUAND AU SUJET DE L'ITALIEN DE BANDEL, MAIS LE RESTE DE L'INVENTION DE L'AUTEUR

      Paris: Chez Gabriel Buon(1581). 459 pages; François de Belleforest was a prolific French author, poet and translator of the Renaissance. He was born in Comminges, into a poor family, and his father (a soldier) was killed when he was seven. He spent some time in the court of Marguerite of Navarre, traveled to Toulouse and Bordeaux (where he met George Buchanan) , and then to Paris where he came into contact with members of the young literary generation, including Pierre de Ronsard, Jean Antoine de Baif, Jean Dorat, Remy Belleau, Antoine Du Verdier and Odet de Turnebe. In 1568 he became historiographer to the king. He died in Paris. Belleforest wrote on cosmography, morals, literature and history, and he translated the works of Matteo Bandello, Boccaccio, Antonio de Guevara, Lodovico Guicciardini, Polydore Vergil, Saint Cyprian, Sebastian Munster, Achilles Tatius, Cicero and Demosthenes into French. He is also the author of the first French pastoral novel, "La Pyrenee" (or "La Pastorale amoureuse") (1571) modeled on the "Diana" of Jorge de Montemayor. His "Grandes Annales" are a polemic tract against Francois Hotman. His total output comprises more than 50 volumes. His most successful work was most likely his translation and adaptation of the "histoires tragiques" by the Italian Matteo Bandello, which built on the work of Pierre Boaistuau and eventually amounted to seven volumes (1564-1582). One of these tales might be the source for Shakespeare's "Hamlet". One of these tales might be the source for Shakespeare's "Hamlet".

      Antwerp, Gérard de Jode, 1581. Four "column books", a type of pattern book intended for the man of practice - building masters, stonemasons, sculptors, cabinet makers, stained glass artists, painters of architectural backgrounds, and all "ingenious lovers of architecture", reducing Vitruvius's architectural theory to a more narrow description of column orders, and showing those craftsmen interested the new foreign (Italian) fashion how to choose the right columnar elements and combine them appropriately on real buildings or in decoration. Their author, the productive and multi-talented artist Jan Vredeman de Vries, has only lately been recognised as one of the most successful disseminators in countries north of the Alps of the ideas and forms of the Italian Renaissance, as the "chief motor behind the spread of the so-called Antwerp Mannerist architecture" (Krista de Jonghe), whose "paper architecture" had an impact on a variety of media not just in Europe but also in the New World.

Platemark 240 × 304 mm Four 'column books', a type of pattern book intended for the man of practice - building masters, stonemasons, sculptors, cabinet makers, stained glass artists, painters of architectural backgrounds, and all 'ingenious lovers of architecture', reducing Vitruvius's architectural theory to a more narrow description of column orders, and showing those craftsmen interested the new foreign (Italian) fashion how to choose the right columnar elements and combine them appropriately on real buildings or in decoration. Their author, the productive and multi-talented artist Jan Vredeman de Vries, has only lately been recognised as one of the most successful disseminators in countries north of the Alps of the ideas and forms of the Italian Renaissance, as the 'chief motor behind the spread of the so-called Antwerp Mannerist architecture', 1 whose 'paper architecture' had an impact on a variety of media not just in Europe but also in the 'New World'. Jan Vredeman apprenticed at first to become a joiner, then as a painter and glass painter in Leeuwarden, before joining the workshop run by the Municipal Painter of Kampen in 1546-1547. In 1549 he took part in creating ephemeral architecture for the entry into Antwerp of the Emperor Charles v and his son, later King Philip ii of Spain. Soon after­ward he is said to have become familiar with the works of Serlio and Vitruvius in the translations published by Pieter i Coecke van Aelst. Vredeman himself never set foot on Italian soil; he obtained most of his knowledge of the new formal language from books and engravings, and used the same medium to present his own contribution. Vredeman began his career as a designer of prints with the Antwerp publisher Gerard de Jode, who brought out two series of his designs for strapwork cartouches in 1555. In the following years, Vredeman designed more series of cartouches, several series of architec­tural perspective views (useful especially in intarsia work), and examples of fountains, vases and tombs, most of which were etched by the brothers Joannes and Lucas Van Doetecum, and published at Antwerp by Hieronymus Cock. He continued meanwhile his collaboration with De Jode, who published his designs of grotesques, terms, and well-heads, among other works. By the mid-1560s, Vredeman's reputation had grown to the point where he - no longer his publisher - was subscribing the dedication and introducing the designs. [img-2396-left-large_default] Fig. 3 Architectura, oder Bauung der Antiquen (folio 21). Platemark 345 × 260 mm The first publications to be brought out under Vredeman's own control were two works exploring the decorative possibilities of the orders of columns: Dorica-Ionica ('Das erst Buch'), structured as three sequences of six plates each, published by Hieronymus Cock in 1565; 2 and Corinthia-Composita ('Das ander Buech'), four unequal sequences of plates, published by Cock later the same year. 3 The plates in these works - both are present in our volume (see Figs. 1 and 2) - show sin­gle architectural details, such as pedestals and capitals with entablature or gable tops; designs for entire columns are not offered, and measurement scales are not always present. It seems Vredeman did not intend his designs to be slavishly copied; he preferred that the reader be stimulated by them into devising his own designs, accommodated to a specific task, and local building practice. [img-2395-left-large_default] Fig. 4 Architectura 3e stuck. De oorden tuschana (folio 9). Platemark 237 × 298 mm The programme thus instituted in 1565 was completed in 1578 with publication by Cock's widow of a third work Tuschana - also present in our volume (Fig. 4) - showing details of bases, columns, entablatures and façades according to the Tuscan order, which Vredeman considered particularly suited to fortifications. Although the 'erst Buch' was reprinted by Cock and his widow in various editions, including one as late as 1601; and the 'ander Buech' appeared in four editions by Cock and his widow, from 1565 until 1581; the plates comprising Tuschana appeared in just this edition. 4 The work bound first in our volume, 'The architecture of building in Antiquity according to Vitruvius', is the only one of the author's publications to feature explanatory text (Fig. 3). 5 Despite its ambitious title, the Architectura is another 'column book', organised in five chapters (one for each of the five orders), each chapter containing etchings and a letterpress text commenting on the etchings. The first plate of each chapter presents the column order itself in five different alternatives of decoration (in the proportions and in the secondary decoration); the other plates are examples of the application of the order, mostly building façades shown frontally, and deal with the problem of how to apply this knowledge on real buildings. The façades are accompanied by a small ground plan which occasionally depicts the space behind the screen of the façade and thus conveys information about the function of the building. The traditional symbolism of the column orders expressed by Vitruvius, Serlio, and Coecke van Aelst, is abandoned by Vredeman, who proposes instead that the choice of order be deter­mined by the degree of prestige the architect wishes to give to the building. The first edition of the Architectura was published in 1577 by Gerard de Jode with German text and reprinted later the same year with French text; another edition in German and a first edition in Dutch appeared in 1581. Apart from alterations to the title-print, the plates are identical in these editions (in some copies of the French edition there is an appendix and additional plate). The letterpress in the 1577 German edition is known in two variants, both set on seven leaves. 6 Although rare copies of the 1581 German edition retain the old letter­press, 7 most provide the second version of the 1577 text reprinted on five leaves. 8 The work passed through at least ten editions before the end of the seventeenth century and influ­enced other books of the same genre. 9 Like most pattern books, Vredeman's have survived mostly in imperfect copies, and very rarely are found complete and in contemporary bindings, even in libraries of an early foun­dation. As Cock and De Jode were competitors, most albums logically present either Cock's editions alone or De Jode's editions alone. Such albums are more suggestive of the marketing practices of the two publishers than the choice or taste of the original owner. An album comparable to our own, presenting the same four works (albeit in different editions), was in the architect Vincenzo Scamozzi's library. 10 Unfortunately, the individual who formed our album has left no recognizable clue to his identity. In structure and decoration, the binding may be localized no more specifically than 'Flemish, probably Antwerp', modi­fied in England during the eighteenth century (when blue paper was pasted over the leather, so that the volume harmonized with others in the Macclesfield Library shelved nearby). There are no inscriptions of ownership antedating those made by Macclesfield librarians. references Peter Fuhring, in Hollstein's Dutch & Flemish etchings, engravings and Woodcuts, 1450-1700: Vredeman de Vries (Rotterdam 1997), xlvii, pp.164-178 nos. 183-200 (Das Erst Buch), pp.179-202 nos. 201-222 (Das ander Buech); Ibid., xlviii, pp.56-85 nos. 408-431 (Architectura, oder Bauung der Antiquen), pp.94-102 nos. 442-453 (Architectura 3e stuck Tuschana) 1.

Three works bound in one volume, 8vo, (viii), 182, (2), 79, (1); 357, (3); xxviii, 186 pp. Printers' woodcut to each title page, second work cut close to the top margin with some loss of page numbers and headline, brief old inked inscriptions to the first two title pages. Bound in 20th century half vellum over marbled boards, black morocco spine labels detailing only the first work. Herodian's history, first printed 1502, was edited by Henri Estienne using the Latin of Angelo Poliziano. It was dedicated to the English poet and courtier Sir Philip Sidney, whom Estienne had befriended some years earlier. The second publication Estienne had dedicated to Sidney, "...he was concerned lest Sidney should be dissipating his intellectual gifts in the futile life of the court, and begins his dedication with three lines adapted from an epistle of Horace warning him against throwing away the gifts Apollo gave..." (Buxton). The second part is the editio princeps of Zosimus' history, albeit only the first two books. Described by Gibbon as "a very questionable judge of merit", Zosimus wrote in Constantinople around 500 AD. The second work is also an editio princeps, of Xiphilanus' abridgement of books 61-80 of Dio Cassius' history, originally produced in the 12th century and the only source for this part of the work. It is beautifully printed by Robert Estienne (Henri's father) almost entirely in the Grec du Roi type designed for him by Garamond. Three years earlier Estienne had first published the surviving text of the rest of the work. The third work, a later printing of Cassius Dio's history, is, like the Herodian and Zosimus, printed in double column, Greek and Latin parallel. A splendid collection of three early historians.

In 1577 he left his position, gave up his allegiance to the Church of England, travelled to Rome, and voluntarily submitted himself to the => Inquisition where he formally recanted his Protestantism. He was welcomed warmly into the Roman Catholic Church, and in 1580 was back in England.    He was arrested in Islington, London, sent to the Tower, recanted his Catholicism, became an informer denouncing various Catholics of his acquaintance. His allegiance changed yet again in 1582, in Rouen, where he recanted his most previous recantation and was => very cautiously received back in the Church of Rome. Death came soon after.    "Nicholls died on the continent in want and, probably, depression, most likely in 1584. He has been condemned by biographers for his want of constancy in what are assumed to be genuine, if bewildering, changes of faith and profession. Yet it may have been the case that there was a kind of cynical consistency in his animal sense of self-preservation, one actively encouraged by the systems of religious repression and polarization under which he managed for a while to operate with some success" (ODNB). => He was clearly one of the most troubled figures in the history of Recusancy.    This copy of his Declaration has setting 2 of the title-page, setting 1 of leaf N1r, and setting 1 of L1r (see ESTC). The title-page has a handsome, elaborate woodcut frame/border in a typical "Barker" style; the prefatory "epistola" is printed in italics, the preface in roman, and the text in gothic (i.e., black letter).    Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and ESTC locate only seven U.S. libraries reporting ownership of this, not one a Catholic institution.    Binding: Signed binding by Bedford. Full sprinkled calf, round spine, raised bands, gilt spine extra. Gilt triple-rule border on both boards; gilt double-rule on board edges; gilt turn-ins including a gilt dentelle rule and a gilt floral vine roll. Red French swirl marbled endpapers. All edges gilt.         STC (rev. ed.) 18533; ESTC S113205; Franks 6551. Apparently beyond the scope of Allison & Rogers (rev. ed.). Excellent 19th-century binding as above, lightly rubbed along the joints (outside). Very good.
