PHAEDRI [PHAEDRUS / FEDRO] [AESOP]
[Aesop's Fables] Phaedri Aug. Liberti Fabularum Aesopiarum Libri V. Notis illustravit in usum serenissimi principis Nassauii David Hoogstratanus. Accedunt ejusdem opera duo indices, [...], quae observatu digna in notis occurrunt.
Amsterdam, Typographia Francisci Halmae (F. Halma), 1701. Leather Bound. 4to. Original vellum, hand-laid paper. Engraved half-title, letterpress red & black title page with allegorical engraved vignette. 18 full-page copper-engraved plates by Jan van Vianen (1660-1703), each featuring six circular images; plus 38 in-text reproductions, engraved decorative initials, and many head- and tailpieces. This copy includes the oft-missing fold-out engraved portrait of Joannes Gulielmus, Prince of Nassau. Front board slightly bowed; overall in excellent condition. Ill.: Jan van Vianen. Phaedrus (15 BC - AD 50, Italy), was a "Roman fabulist, the first writer to Latinize whole books of fables, producing free versions in iambic metre of Greek prose fables then circulating under the name of Aesop." (- Britannica). Rare and luxurious 1701 edition, specially made for the Prince of Nassau, and profusely illustrated with sharp, charming, exquisite engravings. Dibdin: "I have always considered this as a correct and very sumptuous edition. It is ornamented with a great number of small plates, or medallions, in which the subject of the fable is very ably and spiritedly executed. The type is peculiarly rich and bold, and is hardly equalled by any Dutch edition of a classic." (p 285); OCLC, 2519971.

BOOTHBY, SIR BROOKE, BART.
Fables and Satires, with a Preface on the Esopean Fable [Two Volumes -Complete - Bound Together - Author's Signature Laid-in]
Edinburgh, Archibald Constable and Co. 1809. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. 192, 241.12mo,,,A quite rare item. WorldCat recording only two institutional holdings. Our copy bears Boothby's signature, laid down on to page lv. At the top of the Preface page is written: 'E Libris Johannis Sleigh / Leek / 1811', and on the half-title page for the second volume is written: 'John Sleigh / Thornbridge, Derbyshire / 12 Nov. 1858'; one or both sigmnatures possibly being those of John Sleigh, the author of 'A History of the Ancient Parish of Leek in Staffordshire.' Armorial bookplate inside front board with motto 'Medio Tutissimus' ('you will go most safely by the middle course'). This is a re-binding copy, only. All pages present, and it could be re-bound as two volumes, as there is a separate title page for the second volume. However, the present binding is shot. There is old, pervasive, tide mark extending from the top to below mid-point of each page, the extent declining progressively towards the end of the book. Priced with all faults in mind. .
