M.D.C.LXVI (1666) Lugduni Batav. Ex
officina Johannis a Gelder. (Lyon Gelder).
12mo (14 cm) . , 638 pp . Red&Black title page.
The original vellum leather binding is as new, with title handwritten
on the back. Interior is very good with a very unusual printer
device on the Red&Black title page. One of the rarest editions
of that lengthy "book of secrets" (first published as libri
III and then one book was added) , that is to be put with the
"Magiae naturalis" by Porta , or "De secretis mulierum", by
Albertus Magnus. Last edition, far rarer than the usual editions
that were published around 1600, there are no copies in the
US libraries and only two in Europe (UK libraries). No bibliographies
are acquainted with it. A beautiful book.
