de Victoria, Baltasar
Theatro de los Dioses de la Getilidad - primera parte
Antonia Ramirez, Salamanca, 1620. Rare 1st edition, in vellum binding which is not original but very old; the binder used a leaf which has a portion of a royal seal on the rear free endpaper with the date 1726; also on the obverse of that leaf is written, "Huno emi libry pothuidie Kalendar gbxu 1728 - JR Vn." which I believe is the binder's signature; I may very well not have all the letters right. The spine is inscribed "Teatro de Los Dioses". Vellum is in good condition; an old rip in the rear cover has been sewn shut. Otherwise it is rippled, a little soiled, and darkened on the spine. The endpapers likewise are rippled and creased, and written on by several different people. The text is likewise good; begins with the engraved title page, which has been reinforced on the foreedge and has an old owner's name at the bottom. The first introductory page also has owner's writing. There is no loss of text anywhere, but there are water stains here and there, the worst being a brown stain at the upper right from p. 897 to the end. The final page of the 'Tabla' (table of contents, appearing after the text) has short tears in the foreedge. All text is Spanish. Note: the second volume of this work was published in 1623, and a third (by a different author) in 1688. [Attributes: First Edition]
