AMBROSII CALEPINI DICTIONARIUM LINGUARUM SEPTEM : IAM DEMUM ACCURATA EMENDATIONE, ATQUE INFINITORUM LOCORUM AUGMENTATIONE, COLLECTIS ex bonorum authorum monumentis ... : respondent autem LATINIS VOCABULIS, GRAECA, ITALICA, GALLICA, HISPANICA, GERMANICA, BELGICA ... : ONOMASTICUM uero, hoc est, propriorum nominum, regionum, gentium, urbium, montium, fluminum, hominum & similium catalogum ... adiunximus.

BASILEAE : EX OFFICINA HENRICPETRINA, MDLXXIX (dated at the bottom of the very last page).

Two Parts in One Volume. Very Thick, Heavy, Wonderful Volume.

BEAUTIFUL PIGSKIN covered boards, blind embossed with intricate designs on both the front and rear covers, eight raised spine bands (including bands at the top and bottom of the spine), two original metal clasps at the front edge of the front and rear covers, a portion of the original two leather straps is still attached to the rear cover clasps, spine is titled by hand, 9” x 14” x 5” (thick).

Pagination: [1 leaf] Front Free-Endpaper, [44 pages - 22 Leaves], 1674 Pages, [1 leaf] Blank, 355 pages, [1] Engraved Printer’s Device Illustration.

There are some interesting, very early, ownership signatures and inscriptions, and a bookplate. These are on the front pastedown, title page, and rear free endpaper, as follows:

Handwritten on the front pastedown is: “Ex Libris JOANNIS PETRI FISCHER... 1690” (this inscription has been lined out but is fully legible), and “Nunc ad Voum JOANNIS LUDOVICI VICTORIS... anno 1725”. Also on the front pastedown is the bookplate of “PAUL SCHERRER-BYLUND”, who I believe was an important Swiss Librarian and Book Scholar.

At the top of the title page is the signature of “VALLIER DE VENDELSTORFF L'AÎNÉ”.

At the bottom of the title page is a Signature and some Manuscript Information - All I can make out is “WOLFGANG” and the date “A.D. 1588”.

The rear free endpaper has a small paragraph of manuscript writing, in Latin.

SOLID, LOVELY CONDITION - Covers are age spotted, toned and rubbed, but remain sturdy and very handsome; Internally, there is shorelining to the upper margin area of the first 300 or so pages (not or just barely affecting text), there is light foxing throughout, heavy on some pages, very light on most pages (text always clear), some pages with edge wear or light chips, the last few pages have tearing and creasing to the bottom corner; the rear pastedown has scrapes, scratches, rubs, some numbers written on it, and has remnants of recent paper sheets of some sort (one remnant has a few typed German words still visible - perhaps these were information sheets tipped-on there by PAUL SCHERRER-BYLUND, the Swiss bibliophile whose bookplate is on the front pastedown?); overall the inner pages are tight, bright and clean. The solid feel, look, and overall condition of this book is impressive.

SCARCE - the only two copies that I could find, with both the “DICTIONARIUM” and the “ONOMASTICUM”, are selling for well over $1,500, with this exact edition being priced at $2,200 (though I think my copy has a Much Nicer cover, with its Intricately Embossed Pigskin with Clasps vs. Plain Leather).
