[BOTERO (Giovanni), inter alia]:
Respublica, Sive Status Regni Poloniae, Lituaniae, Prussiae, Livoniae, etc. Diversorum Autorum
Lugduni Batavorum, Apud Elzeviriana, 1627. Small 12mo [24mo], 106 x 53 mms., pp. [viii], 410 [411 - 422 Index, 423 Privilege, 424 blank], including engraved title-page with royal seal between two knights), contemporary vellum; contemporary ownership inscription on verso of front free end-paper, 18th century inscriptions on verso of title-page, paper label at base of spine. A very good copy. This was one of the books in the "Respublica" series which had the aim of making knowledge of eastern Europe more readily accessible. Willems notes, "II y a sous la meme date une seconde edition, augmentee et crigee, comme 1'indique la preface. Elle a 467 pp., 11 pp. d'index et 1 f. pour le privilege. Bonaventure et Abraham ont reimpr ime cette Republique en 1642. Cette troisieme edition est la mieux executee, mais De la Faye y a signale diverses fautes d'impression, qui lui font donner la preference a la seconde."
