Place

Lyon

Note

Includes 197 woodcut emblems and 14 woodcuts of trees, in richly decorated woodcut Renaissance borders of varying design, some woodcut initials and tailpieces.
The vignettes and the borders enclosing them (in part signed P.V.) are most probably by Pierre Vase, or Du Vase, son of Jakob Eskrich, and known also as Petrus Escrichius, or Pierre Cruche; they have been erroneously attributed to Pierre Vingle, and to others--cf. Thieme-Becker XI (1915) pages 31-32 and Baudrier, Bibl. Lyonnaise, t. IX (1912) page 46.
Title printed in a cartouche in a richly decorated woodcut architectural border with grotesques, containing Bonhomme's Perseus device in an oval frame below the title.
Includes index.
Victoria University Library copy bound in contemporary gold-tooled calf over wooden boards, each board with a frame of blind fillets, remnants of clasps.
