First Thus. Half leather with textured boards. Six raised panels with contemporary gilt decoration. Hand printed endpapers. All page edges red. 205 x 130 mm (8 x 5 inches). Boards and spine are in a good condition, with only light rubbing. Corners and edges lightly bumped. Inside, there is a Hungarian library bookplate to front, and a couple of small Hungarian library stamps. Title page has some ink handwritten notes, and an area that looks like it has been scorched by a candle. Otherwise, some sporadic foxing, but generally very good for its age.
Dealer Notes
Encyclopaedia Britannica says: “Barclay’s Euphormionis Lusinini Satyricon - a severe satire on the Jesuits, the medical profession, and contemporary scholarship, education, and literature - is modeled on the style of the Roman satirist Gaius Petronius Arbiter; it is an urbane and facile mixture of prose and verse. Filled with villains and rogues, it contributed to the later development of the picaresque novel”.
