Notes
  • Ill. by Girolamo Muziano and by Raphael and his students Giulio Romano and Giovanni Polidoro.
  • First edition.
  • Signatures: A-F⁴.
  • T.p. exists in two states, one of which includes this bookseller statement: Si vendono in Piazza Nauona da Gio. Battista Rossi milanese.
  • Adams also identifies another edition (C1628) published by the same printers in the same year. In this edition (Adams C1627) the decorated initial in the dedication occupies 6 lines; in the other edition it occupies 11. In this edition the final page is numbered correctly; in the other it is misnumbered 34.
  • Printer's device with anchor and dolphin on t.p.
  • Possibly sometimes issued with "Historia ceu verissima a calumniis multorum vindicata", 22 further pages following the index (cf. OCLC). 320 individual scenes are numbered in the plates, presumably corresponding to explanations in Chacón's text.
  • Woodcuts in text: device, ornamental initials, tail-piece.
  • Includes index.
  • Purchase supported by the Elise and Wesley Wright, Jr. '51 Marquand Book Fund.
