Engraved armorial book-plate "Bibliotheque du Chateau de Tanqueux" on front pastedown, inscription "1742 di Giaco Soranzo"(probably a descendant of Jacopo Soranzo, the 16c.

This is the second edition of a very rare book, first published in 1544. COPAC locates only the BL copy in the UK; the World Catalogue adds two copies in France, Bibliotheque Mazarine and Bibliotheque Sainte-Genevieve, and only one copy of the 1544 edition (BL), the earliest in Italy is a 1558 edition at Bologna and in the USA a 1552 edition at the Huntington Library. The original Spanish text was first published in Salamanca in 1511 and is sometimes attributed to Francisco Vazquez; this translation into Italian is attributed to Mambrino Roseo.
