A Dialogue of Polygamy, Written Originally in Italian; A Dialogue of Divorce
London: Printed for John Garfield, 1657. First edition in English. Hardcover. Very good. Item #19790
"Rendred into English by a person of quality, and dedicated to the author of that well-known treatise call'd Advice to a son."
12mo. (22), 89. 61pp. Contemporary full leather, tooled simply in blind. The dialogue of Polygamy is followed by the dialogue of Divorce, which has its own pagination.
The endpapers are filled with penciled notations of a former owner (C. Inglis, M.D? His bookplate is on the front pastedown.) Also the first two blanks are filled with a beautifully calligraphed biography of Ochino.
We note some old repairs to the leather especially the spine, perhaps they could actually be part of the original binding. The corners are worn else this is in very good condition.
