2º (360 x 240mm). Engraved title with the author’s portrait, 40 etched and engraved plates numbered 3-42, woodcut mythological headpiece and historiated initials. (Persistent waterstaining, plates 10, 34, 38-39 affected by internal tears, plates 33, 35-42 damaged at outer margin and repaired with some minor loss.) 18th-century half calf, elegant gilt spine, marbled edges (lightly rubbed). Provenance: Westport House (bookplate) – Jasper More (bookplate).

Apart from two letterpress leaves which contain the dedication and laudatory verses to Pietro Aretino and the address to the reader, this work is all-engraved, and 'largely a reprint of the plates first published in Venice by Bolognino Zaltieri in or after 1570.' First published in 1562, it achieved classic status continuing in print well into the 19th century. Casotti 23; RIBA 3449
