Description: elaborate engraved title-page (cut close, just within plate-mark, and re-inforced at top), repair to lower outer corner to C3, rust spot on L8 (obscuring but not obliterating a few letters), generally a small copy, a few headlines shaved, a little browned in places, side-notes on N6 trimmed, pp. [viii], 235, [9], small 8vo, old mottled calf, sides gilt with the arms of Eduardo de Braganza, first marquis of Frechilla y Villarramiel, rebacked, preserving original spine, sprinkled edges

Publication Details: Antwerp: [colophon: G.Wolsschat & Aerts for] Juan Keerberghio, 1615

Notes: Very scarce first edition of Sveiro's translation. Sverio also translated Velleius, and Tacitus, and wrote historical works on the Low Countries. Not in RBH; a copy was Lot 7629 in the Roxburghe sale. The attribution of the arms on the binding are due to a pencil inscription on the fly-leaf: but we don't think these are the arms of the first marquis, although they do have elements both of Castille and Braganza.
