Lugduni: Gryphium, 1556. Full vellum wrappers, 12mo, 256pp + index. Binding good with wrapper loose/detached at rear hinge, exposing the original sewing and backing. The wrapper is partially cracked/open along part of the rear joint, with a small tear toward the top, possibly caused by hardening from an old lacquering or varnishing of the spine. The upper edge is chipped but the spine end is fine. There is an old adhesive remainder toward the bottom of the spine. The vellum appears to have been written on at some point, though the evidence of this is faint. Internally, the book is in very good condition with a light tidemark to upper corner of the last 40 or so pages, otherwise bright and clean. There is a nice printer's device on the title page, and the book is nicely printed in general. Contents are unmarked, a very nice copy of this scarce volume. Good +.
