Gerardi TvningI IC. praestantissimi, in Academia Lvgduno-Batava legum quondam professoris. In quatuor libros Institutionum iuris civilis divi Justiniani commentarius; ex adversarijs auctoris magna cura collectus ac nunc primùm editus ab Arnoldo Vinnioic
Lvgdvni Batavorvm [Leiden]: ex Officina Elzeviriana, 1618. First edition, posthumously published; small 4to, pp. [20], 928, [14]; printer's woodcut vignette on title page, woodcut initials and ornaments; contemporary unadorned full vellum, turned-in edges; some soiling and staining to the vellum, but on the whole very good and sound. Early ink annotations, underlinings, and references throughout the text. This copy with an attractive watercolor (collage) pasted to front pastedown, which is subtly overpainted to make it seem as if it were a painting made directly into the book. A signature to the left of it reads "Cornelius Hirt" (?). Born in Leiden, Gerard Tuning (1566-1610) wrote a number of books on divine and constitutional law. A life of him by Vinnius is part of the preliminaries. Not a common book: only 3 in OCLC as of 3/16 and only George Washington Univ. in the US. Copinger 4781; Willems 150.
