[8], 344, [8] pp. Illustrated with woodcut title-page and 199 in-text woodcuts plus numerous woodcut tailpieces and additional ornaments. 8vo., 147 x 100 mm, bound in contemporary Spanish limp vellum housed in a new burnt sienna cloth folding box with white printed label. Gerona: Per Francisco Bro, [ca. 1790]. |~||~||~||~| First Edition to be illustrated with this wonderful series of woodcuts by an unknown Catalan artist. Many of the cuts are clearly based on earlier models going back to the fifteenth century, however the artist of these cuts has imbued them with his own sense of whimsy. The book itself is undated, but the Biblioteca de Catalunya assigns it a date of 1790. This copy is preserved in particularly unsophisticated condition. A rare book, with OCLC listing only 4 copies in America, of which two are imperfect, and no copies at auction in ABPC. Palau y Dulcet, V, 81976 (note). Aguiló y Fuster, no. 2165.
