Frankfurt J. Saurium 1605 Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
70 leaves, unpaginated, renewed end papers and blanks. In octavos. With the bookplate of Col. Victor De Guinzbourg, who was in counterintelligence prior to WWII and, according to his family, used a number of different names -- he also happened to collect books of proverbs, the book passed to Robert Easton after his death. Very attractively bound in modern 3/4 leather with gilt ruling, dark blue marbled boards, five raised bands to the spine with gilt florets in the panels, gilt spine label. End papers are marbled to match the boards, new blanks, the text is clean and bright, just lightly toned, pages never separated. Some pages have small wear to the fore-edges as people have tried to thumb through the unopened pages, the bookplate on the end paper, otherwise clean and bright. "A very rare collection of Italian proverbs, some of a lascivious and/or humorous nature, arranged alphabetically. Text is presented in Italian with translations in Latin. Duplessis notes the rarity of this book and remarks that none of the Italian bibliographies he consulted mention the work. He does note the appearance of an edition printed one year prior to this one. There are only a handful of copies held by institutions, and we record no auction appearance of this work in the last 100 years. [Duplessis, 461; Brunet I. , 1076. ] Provenance: Bookplate of Victor De Guinzbourg to front end paper. From the collection of Robert Easton. "; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 140 pages
