Marca tipografica all' inizio e fregio in fine. Eleganti capilettera xilografici. Edizione molto rara, manca ad Adams, Bm. Stc. French e Sapori. Celebre ed erudita opera misogina che si inimicò il gentil sesso per i suoi feroci sarcasmi contro il mondo femminile e contro il matrimonio optando per il concubinaggio. Si dice che per le maldicenze l' autore fu costretto ad inginocchiarsi davanti alle dame di Torino e l' opera fu messa all' indice. Per questo motivo l' edizione originale del 1518 è pressocchè sparita. Qualche antica sottolineatura, più pesante a pagg. 22 danneggia alcune righe. Una macchiolina all' estremo margine di poche carte in fine peraltro esemplare bello nitido e genuino.

Internally clean and bright. Very good.

The work was first published in Zaragosa in 1552, and quickly went through a number of editions in Spain, Italy, and the Low Countries. Dedicated to Cosmo de Medici, this edition is enhanced by two woodcuts, the first of what appears to represent a buffalo, and the second being an elaborate printer's device on the verso of the last leaf. A rare account of the Mexican conquest. WAGNER SPANISH SOUTHWEST 2N. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 556/22. SABIN 27736. MEDINA (BHA) 159N.

        CRONICA GENERALE D'HISPAGNA, ET DEL REGNO DI VALENZA.

      Trad. Alfonso d'Ulloa. Imp. Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari. Venecia, 1556 - . 16 cm. 36 h., 533 pág., un mapa de España, a doble página. Marca tipográfica en portada, cabeceras y capitulares xilográficas. Enc. en piel gofrada, ruedas doradas en ambos planos. Cajo parcialmente sesgado. Portada levemente deslucida. Anotaciones manuscritas antiguas en los márgenes, algunas son glosas en francés. Ex-libris de anterior poseedor. * Edición veneciana de la obra magna de Pedro Antonio Beuter (1522-1554), primer cronista del reino de Valencia. Beuter se considera, entre otros, el creador de la leyenda de las cuatro barras para el escudo de Cataluña, pues adaptó la leyenda de la toma de Córdoba en 1236 y estableció una nueva tradición. Su obra obtuvo una enorme difusión, como lo demuestra el hecho de que se editara en Venecia apenas diez años después de que la primera parte española viera la luz. Beuter ofrece valiosos testimonios, como la que se considera la cita más antigua sobre yacimientos arqueológicos españoles referente a una tumba eneolítica en la Cartuja de las Fuentes. Asimismo, reinterpreta algunas leyendas e instaura otras nuevas, como la de Blasco de Alagón y la conquista de Morella. En relación a ésta cabe destacar que la versión de Beuter presenta la particularidad de reseñar la procedencia de la misma, pues el autor afirma que dio con la narración en los archivos del castillo de Morella.

      In Aedibus Rouillij, Via Iacobaea, Sub Signo Concordiae, Paris 1556 - four volumes bound in two, much-worn half-leather, probably 19th century rebinding. Volume one is second edition of 1566, place of publication given as 'Parisiis'; volumes 2 and 4 are first editions dated Lutetiae 1565, title page of volume 3 is missing, so edition unknown. The text has been disbound at some period, resulting in creasing and marginal damage to title page of volume 1, and to final few leaves of index in volume 2. Old dampstains are evident in foredge area in parts of volumes 1 and 2. However, there is no loss of text, apart from title page of volume 3, and the binding is now sound and tight. All volumes contain frequent scholarly marginalia in a neat hand, in Latin and Greek. The handwriting of these notes does not correspond to any of the names of previous owners signed on the outer leaves. The latest owner was 'Tomas O Ceallaigh', signature dated 1942. An earlier owner seems to have been Henry Hare (? - surname is blotted out), dated 1698. Photos and further information on inquiry. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Memorabilium Gaudentii Merulae

      Lyons: Macé Bonhomme,, 1556. Novariensis ultra primam editionem et recognitum ... cum emendatione et scholiis Pomponii Castalli Olivetani. Octavo (167 × 103 mm). Later brown morocco to 16th-century style, plain raised bands, spine gilt-lettered in second compartment, old gilt edges. 5 woodcut figures in the text. Contemporary ownership inscription at head of title, contemporary Latin marginalia to title verso and extensively to the last leaf blank verso, underlining and marginalia elsewhere, the brown ink occasionally having spread, manuscript diagram to blank A6 verso. A very good copy. First edition published in France, the third and most extensive overall. Gaudenzio Merula (1500-1555) was born of a humble family in Borgolavezzaro, near Novara. He held teaching appointments in Milan, at the Academy in Novara, and subsequently at Vigevano and Turin. In 1554 he was charged with Protestant heresy, first before the bishop of Novara and subsequently in Milan. "His Memorabilia, printed at his native town in 1546, then at Venice in 1550, and at Lyons in 1556 in an enlarged edition, contain some alchemy as well as astrology, natural philosophy, history and theology" (Lynn Thorndike, History of Magic and Experimental Science, pt. 9, p. 547). The book was prohibited until purged of anticlerical passages, but he was cleared of the other charges of heresy, only to fall ill and die shortly after the termination of his second trial. Pages 417 and 418 contain a short notice of the "insulae Americae." The book is rare in commerce, with no copy at auction since 1951.

      Antwerp Johannes de Laet 1556 - First Edition of the Latin translation of this seminal book by Hasan ben Muhamed el-Wazzan-ez-Zayyati (1485-1552), known by his Latin name Johannes Leo Africanus. . Engraved title-page with the vignette and woodcut initials. 8vo, Late 17th or early 18th century French polished calf, the covers with single fillet line at the borders, elaborately decorated in gilt on the spine within compartments separated by double gilt fillet lines, redmorocco lettering label gilt, period marbled endleaves, edges stained red, armorial bookplate. 332 pp. A very fine copy, text very bright and clean, a touch of very occasional toning, hinges strong and sound, the binding in very pleasing and well preserved condition. VERY IMPORTANT AND RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE PRIZED LATIN TRANSLATION OF THE FIRST GREAT WORK ON AFRICA. During the years 1511-1517 Leo Africanus traveled to Fez, Morocco, Tunis, and across the Sahara Desert to Timbuktu. He visited the native sates on the Upper Niger to Kario, Houssa, Bornou and Lake Chad. He also made a voyage to Constantinople and Egypt and then crossed the Red Sea to Arabia. He was subsequently captured by the Venetians and presented to Pope Leo X whose name Leo he adopted as his surname. The Pope persuaded him to translate the Arabian manuscript account of his travels into Italian. The account was then translated by Floreanu into Latin. This is generally considered to be the first book published in Europe by a person of primarily African descent. The book was considered the most important on the geography of Africa and an especially important source for all information on the continent. The book was printed in a multitude of languages over hundreds of years after the first Italian and Latin editions were issued. The English translation did not appear until 1600. Until the great European voyages and explorations into Africa in the 1600’s and 1700’s, Leo Africanus’ work was considered the primary source for all studies on the Sudan and even of Africa. First edition copies in condition such as this are very rare on the open market. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Eiusdem De animantibus subterraneis Liber, ab Autore recognitus: cum Indicibus diversis, quicquid in opere tractatum est, pulchrè demonstrantibus.

      Basel: Hieronymus Froben and Nicolaus Bischoff, March 1556 - Folio (317 × 219 mm) in sixes, complete with blank leaf [alpha]6. Seventeenth-century calf, skilfully rebacked with original spine laid down, relined, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco label, double gilt rules. Binding rubbed and with light scoring, early manuscript notes at head of title; an excellent copy, clean and well-margined, of an important book not uncommonly found in poor state. Woodcut title device, repeated on Bb6v, 2 woodcut plates (edges folded in), woodcut illustrations and diagrams in the text, white-on-black initials. Roman, Greek, and gothic types. First edition. "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times" (PMM). The book is extensively illustrated with a fine series of almost 300 woodcuts, some signed with the monogram "RMD", generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl. 1525–1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring. Preparation of the woodcuts delayed publication until four months after the author's death. Mining as an industry underwent dramatic changes in medieval Europe, with the centre of technological development being central Europe. From his base in Saxony, the prodigiously scholarly Georgius Agricola (the Latinized name of Georg Pawer) was ideally placed to discuss the technologies used, the chemistry behind the processes of mineral extraction, and – reflecting his role as town physician at Joachimsthal, a centre of mining and smelting works – the health and daily routine of mine workers. One of the prime issues confronting medieval miners (and one which Agricola explains in detail) was the removal of water from mining shafts. Written over a 20-year period between 1530 and 1550, the 12 books have an earlier treatise on subterranean zoology, De animantibus subterraneis (first published Basel: 1549), appended, and "embrace everything connected with the mining industry and metallurgical processes, including administration, prospecting, the duties of officials and companies, and the manufacture of glass, sulphur and alum" (PMM).

Internally clean and bright. Very good. The first Italian edition of one of the most important early chronicles of the Spanish conquest of the New World, and one of the two chief accounts of Cortés' conquest of Mexico, the other being provided by Bernal Diaz.

The work was first published in Zaragosa in 1552, and quickly went through a number of editions in Spain, Italy, and the Low Countries. Dedicated to Cosmo de Medici, this edition is enhanced by two woodcuts, the first of what appears to represent a buffalo, and the second being an elaborate printer's device on the verso of the last leaf.

        Memorabilium Gaudentii Merulae Novariensis ultra primam editionem et recognitum . cum emendatione et scholiis Pomponii Castalli Olivetani.

      Lyons: Macé Bonhomme, 1556 - Octavo (167 × 103 mm). Later brown morocco to 16th-century style, plain raised bands, spine gilt-lettered in second compartment, old gilt edges. Contemporary ownership inscription at head of title, contemporary Latin marginalia to title verso and extensively to the last leaf blank verso, underlining and marginalia elsewhere, the brown ink occasionally having spread, manuscript diagram to blank A6 verso. A very good copy. 5 woodcut figures in the text. First edition published in France, the third and most extensive overall. Gaudenzio Merula (1500-1555) was born of a humble family in Borgolavezzaro, near Novara. He held teaching appointments in Milan, at the Academy in Novara, and subsequently at Vigevano and Turin. In 1554 he was charged with Protestant heresy, first before the bishop of Novara and subsequently in Milan. "His Memorabilia, printed at his native town in 1546, then at Venice in 1550, and at Lyons in 1556 in an enlarged edition, contain some alchemy as well as astrology, natural philosophy, history and theology" (Lynn Thorndike, History of Magic and Experimental Science, pt. 9, p. 547). The book was prohibited until purged of anticlerical passages, but he was cleared of the other charges of heresy, only to fall ill and die shortly after the termination of his second trial. Pages 417 and 418 contain a short notice of the "insulae Americae." The book is rare in commerce, with no copy at auction since 1951. Sabin 48033.

Strip of the lower margin of B4 replaced, not affecting the text. Light foxing to second t.p., one quire toned, marginal waterstain to last few leaves. Otherwise excellent. Rare first edition of the Tractatus de erigendis figures coeli, documenting Copernican influence on 16th-century astronomical literature, with two ex dono dedications to the Wittenberg mathematician and physician Jacob Milich, (see below)¿indicating that Milich, whose numerous collaborations with Melanchthon are already well-documented, was a here-to-fore unknown of the Wittenberg Circle, the informal group of Copernicans centered around Rheticus and Reinhold. The present work is essentially astrological, dealing chiefly with the casting of horoscopes. It thereby reflects, however, the mathematical rigor that 16th C astronomers applied to astrological prediction: Garcaeus insists upon an accurate astronomical basis for such predictions, citing Copernicus more than twenty times and drawing upon Copernicus¿s calculations to get celestial positions of the planets. The second Tractatus, an extremely rare astronomical text published the same year by another Wittenberg publisher, also includes references to Copernicus. Such references are clear evidence that only 13 years after the publication of De Revolutionibus, Copernicus was well-known and esteemed as a mathematician and astronomer, and his name was appearing frequently in print. Both works are dedicated by Garcaeus to Jacob Milich (1501-1559), the astronomer, physician, and professor of mathematics at Wittenberg from at least 1535, where he presided as Dean of Arts during a public ¿Oratio de dignitate astrologiae,¿ written by himself or possibly Melanchthon. Milich evidently taught at the university from 1535 onward (placing him in Wittenberg during the first printing of De rev in 1543), and ¿seems to have been such a close collaborator in Melanchthon¿s cause that even his contemporaries mistook Milich¿s commentary on the second book of [Pliny] . . . as a work by Melanchthon¿ (Kusukawa). Indeed, Garcaeus¿ respect for the physician¿s learning is such that, among the genitures of ¿learned men¿ printed in his Astrologiae methodus (Basel 1576), Milich¿s geniture is given prior to those of Copernicus, Camerarius, Erasmus and even Melanchthon himself¿prior to every contemporary, in fact, but Reinhold, who authored the third work in the present volume. Among Milich¿s medical works, Thorndike also records orations on the lives of Galen and Avicenna, and anatomical and cardiac treatises printed among Melanchthon¿s Declamationes (1558). Milich is also the namesake of the lunar crater Milichius. Johannes Garcaeus (1530-1575) was a German astronomer, mathematician, meteorologist and astrologer who studied at Wittenberg. The works of Erasmus Reinhold, professor of Mathematics at Wittenberg, also promoted Copernicanism. This first [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Universale Della Parte Del Mondo . . .

      Venice 1556 - Mended centerfold splits, lightly toned along fold, overall very good condition. The rare first state of an important and in some ways groundbreaking map. The woodblock for this map was destroyed shortly after its publication in a fire in November of 1557, hence its rarity. The map was compiled by the great Venetian cartographer, Giacomo Gastaldi, and appeared in a three-volume collection of voyage and travel accounts that was by far the most extensive, early compilation of this kind relating to the New World. In its overall delineation of North America, the map is a great improvement over Munster¿s 1540 Americas map in its general depiction of both North and South America. Yet ¿La Florida¿ is the only place name in what is now the United States, aside from the mythical cities of the Southwest. There are several tantalizing inlets along the eastern seaboard of the United States, which have given rise to much speculation as to their identity. When he prepared this map, Gastaldi clearly had the benefit of the travel accounts included in Ramusio¿s compendium. For example, this work was one of the first to contain a printed account of Coronado¿s explorations in the Southwest, hence ¿this is the first printed American map to include any of the names from the travels of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado of 1540-42¿ (Burden). It was also the first map to show the Sierra Nevada mountain range and ¿Quivira,¿ one of the fabled cities that spurred the expeditions of Coronado and others. The map has a surprisingly good depiction of lower California and the Gulf of California. It visually hedges the question of whether America and Asia are connected. Burden 24.

        Britannia insula quae duo regna continent Angliam et Scotiam cum Hibernia adiacente ("The British Isles, comprising two kingdoms, England and Scotland, with Ireland adjacent")

      Rome, 1556. THE FIRST COPPER-PLATE MAP OF THE BRITISH ISLES BASED ON CONTEMPORARY KNOWLEDGE Copperplate engraving: 193/8" x 137/8" trimmed with original extended margins References: R.V. Tooley, "Maps in Italian Atlases of the Sixteenth Century," Imago Mundi 3 (1939), n. 269; Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 163; Rodney W. Shirley, Early Printed Maps of the British Isles: A Bibliography 1477-1650 (Somerset, England, 1980), n. 60. George Lily, a religious exile from England living in Rome, was the author of the earliest separately published map to show the British Isles as a whole. Lily's map, first issued in Rome in 1546, derived the shape of England and Wales from Sebastian Münster's map of 1540 and also perhaps from a manuscript produced around 1535 known as the Cotton map, which is now in the British Library. Lily, however, included many more place names and topographical features than either model. Rodney Shirley, the great authority on maps of Great Britain, wrote that "the Lily map is one of the finest engravings of the first part of the 16th century and rightly deserves the accord which has been given to it. There are several earlier versions of the British Isles in Ptolemaic atlases but none of these approaches the Lily map in originality, clarity, or elegance." Lily was an English Catholic who, as part of the entourage of Reginald Cardinal Pole, was banished from England in 1543 during the aftermath of Henry VIII's split with the papacy. Lily established himself in Rome, working as an editor of maps in collaboration with the prominent publisher Michele Tramezzini. Lily signed his work with a monogrammed 'GLA' (Georgius Lilius Anglus). "Britanniae Insulae," although unsigned, may also have been engraved by Beatrizet, and was probably published by Tramezzini. Lily's original issue of 1546 is of great rarity. The present map is a fine example of the second issue, published a decade later and also quite scarce. It is true to the original, although the British Isles are oriented with north at top (in contrast to the 1546 orientation with north at left), in the more familiar configuration that has become standard in modern times. The depiction of Great Britain is geographically advanced, while Ireland is represented with noticeably less definition. The identity of the publisher and engraver is unknown, and the appearance of the creator's mark, I.H.S., at the lower right corner, is the only clue as to its author. This example of the rare second issue of Lily's map is in very good condition and represents an exceptionally important work in the early history of British Isles cartography.. Book.

Overall, a beautiful copy, elegantly bound.Originally published in Latin in 1516, Utopia, was not translated into English until Ralph Robinsonís 1551 version. His address ìTo the Gentle Readerî in this second edition explains that he had initially intended his translation only for the ìpriuate useî of his friend William Cecil, the greatest statesman of his era: ìBut as the latine prouerbe sayeth: The hastye bitche bringesth furth blind whelpes. For when this my worke was finished, the rudenes therof shewed it to be done in post haste. How be it, rude and base though it were, yet fortune so ruled the matter that to Imprintinge it came, and that partly against my wyll.îFive years later, Robinson presented the English press with this corrected and refined translation. In addition to adding a new preface, marginal notes, and verses at the end in Utopian and English, he spent ìsuch painesî on the translation that, his address claims, there are ìverye fewe great faultes & notable errours are in it.îPforzheimer notes: ìSucceeding editors admit [Robinsonís] claims to be just and this edition the most correct of all the early editions and his text, likewise, worthy of the tradition of the Tudor translators and not easily to be superseded by modern scholarship. It is this edition which was reprinted by Morris at the Kelmscott Press.îThis copy is the Foyle copy with the Foyle bookplate. Housed in a custom black morocco clamshell, gilt-stamped.Gibson 26b.

      Woodcut printer's device on title & on verso of last leaf, two folding woodcut plates (the second just shaved at head), & about 270 splendid woodcuts (many full-page) in the text. 6 p.l. (sixth leaf blank), 502 pp., 37 leaves. Folio (324 x 223 mm.), fine 18th-cent. green sheep & blue paste-paper boards (some minor foxing & browning), spine decorated in gilt, orange leather lettering piece on spine. Basel: [H. Froben & N. Episcopius], 1556. First edition, and a fine, crisp, and large copy of "the first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times...The De Re Metallica embraces everything connected with the mining industry and metallurgical processes, including administration, prospecting, the duties of officials and companies and the manufacture of glass, sulphur and alum. The magnificent series of two hundred and seventy-three large woodcut illustrations by Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch add to its value. Some of the most important sections are those on mechanical engineering and the use of water-power, hauling, pumps, ventilation, blowing of furnaces, transport of ores, etc., showing a very elaborate technique."-Printing & the Mind of Man 79. Agricola mentions a large number of minerals, many for the first time, and describes and illustrates numerous mining and metallurgical processes, many of which are still in use. The separate parts of the machinery are shown. Book V contains Agricola's important contribution to physical geology; he recognized the influence of water and wind on the shaping of the landscape and gave a clear account of the order of the strata he saw in the mines. Writing on the origin of mountains, he describes the eroding action of water as their cause with a perspicacity much in advance of his time. The famous woodcuts depict various mining and metallurgical machinery, men at work, and the first illustration of a railway (p. 276 -- trucks containing ore on wooden rails). A pleasing copy in a most attractive 18th-century binding. From the library of Marchese Massimiliano Spinola, Castello Spinola. Bookplates of Dr. Piergiorgio Borio. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 88.

        DIPNOSOPHISTARUM.

      Venise, Arrivabenus. 1556 - ATHENEE. DIPNOSOPHISTARUM sive Coenae sapientum Libri XV. Natale de Comitibus veneto nunc primum e Graeca in Latinam linguam vertente. Venise, Arrivabenus, 1556. In-folio de (6) ff., 288 pp. et (6) ff. d’index. Vélin souple, titre calligraphié au dos, quelques éclats au dos, mouillure marginale. Reliure de l’époque. 300 X 208 mm. PREMIERE TRADUCTION LATINE DU célèbre « Banquet des Savants » d’Athénée, « encyclopédie riche et variée de l’antiquité et véritable traité de gastronomie ». La première édition de cet ouvrage parut en grec à Venise, chez Alde, en 1514. Vicaire, 50-52 ; Adams, A 2098 ; Oberlé, p.21 ; K. Mengis, Die scriffistellerische Technik im Sophistenmahl des Athenaios, Paderborn, 1920 ; Ch. B. Gulick, Athenaeus, « The Deipnosophists », London, Cambridge (Mass.), 1927-1941. « Les digressions auxquelles se livrent les convives font passer sous nos yeux toute la société antique » (G. Oberlé). « Ce Banquet doit prendre place dans une bibliothèque gourmande. Athénée y traite en effet d’une quantité de sujets relatifs à la gastronomie. Les noms des gourmands les plus fameux, des cuisiniers célèbres y sont cités; les vertus et qualités des légumes, poissons et animaux font le sujet de longues dissertations ainsi que les vins, les usages admis dans les repas et fêtes épulaires. » (Vicaire). L’auteur nous a laissé cet important ouvrage qui est un trésor d’érudition. Sa compilation est d’autant plus précieuse que la plupart des ouvrages qu’il cite sont perdus. C’est une encyclopédie de l’Antiquité, riche, variée, éblouissante.   « D’une manière générale, il s’agit d’une mine précieuse pour la connaissance d’une sphère culturelle et sociale qui joue un rôle fondamental dans la civilisation grecque : celle du plaisir, qu’il s’agisse des plaisirs de la table, du vin, de l’éros, de la musique ou encore de l’entretien symposiaque, avec ses genres poétiques, ses modes et règles de l’échange verbal, sa conception hédoniste de la culture et de l’érudition». (A.Lukinovich). Rabelais, dans Pantagruel et Gargantua cite Athénée et va s’inspirer du Dipnosophistarum dans la rédaction de ses « banquets burlesques ». « La liberté de la parodie, la volubilité des convives, l’inventivité de leur parole sont des lieux communs du banquet rabelaisien. Les mangeurs sont des parleurs et ces parleurs sont des philologues amoureux de la langue qui se rassasient de mots autant que de mets. Les savants à table dans Athénée s’intéressent aux verba ; leur boulimie de connaissances s’accompagne d’une active curiosité philologique. » (M. Jeanneret). PRECIEUX ET BEL EXEMPLAIRE CONSERVE DANS SON VELIN SOUPLE DE L’EPOQUE. L’OUVRAGE A ETE LU, SOULIGNE ET COMMENTE PAR UN ERUDIT. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Erstmals 1555 veröffentlichte Philippika gegen die Trunksucht, später auch den zahlreichen Ausgaben von Friderichs "Wider den Sauffteufel" beigegeben. Seltener Druck des Augsburger Winkeldruckers Hans Gegler, der Saufteufel zählt zu den schönsten Beispielen der sogenannten Teufelsliteratur des 16. Jahrhunderts. - Der lutherische Theologe Friderich aus Görlitz (um 1510-1559) predigt aus eigener Erfahrung gegen den Saufteufel "als der ich vor zeyten auch im gedienet". Mit geschickter Rhetorik und in direkter Sprache wird Alltäglichkeit und Verbreitung des Lasters angeprangert: "Ich sehe auch, wie das sauffen bey uns Teütschen so gar uber hand genom(m)en hat, Also, das es gantz schwärlich, ja gleich unmüglich scheinet, das solch Laster solte bey uns gantz außgereüttet künden werden. Denn es wirt yetzund von wenigen für ain Laster, ja vil mehr für eytel Tugendt geachtet [...] So braucht man auch nicht mehr gebürlich un(d) gewöhnliche Trinckgefäß, sondern auß schüsseln, Töpffeln, Saltzfessern, Käßnepffen, Becken, handbecke(n), Handfässern, fischpfan(n)en, Kacheln. Item auß Hüten, Schühen, un(d) so noch was ergers ist, saufft man yetzund ainander zü. Und ich achte, so es noch lenger stehn soll, So werden sy ainander auß Säwtrögen züsauffen" (Bl. A2 verso und A3 recto). Anschließend wird unter Berufung auf biblische und antike Autoritäten zur Umkehr aufgerufen. - Gering gebräunt, vereinzelt minimal fleckig. *VD 16 F 2757.
