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.
