Vinegia (Venice): Presso Giovachino Brugnolo, 1602. Contemporary full vellum. Very Good. 70 numbered leaves, 140 pp. Small 4to, 7.75 by 6 inches, 19.5 by 15 cm. With 78 woodcuts of philosophers, writers and other figures whose biographies are here rendered as well as a few more allegorical subjects. Also in addition a few printer's devices and/or other woodcut ornaments. This is a translation of Laertius, a third century Greek biographer of philosphers of the Ancient World. The charm of this copy most definitely resides in the illustrations. Vellum boards splayed and with film of soilage. Skiver spine label worn and rubbed. Blank leaves, preliminary and at rear, with chipping and very browned. Some marginal foxing. Generally the text is clean and crisp, as are the illustrations, and the binding remains tight overall.
