Lugd. Batavorum [Leiden]: Elzevirios, 1637. Hardcover. Presumed to be the first edition thus: Elzevier produced two editions in 1637; in this example, pages 207 and 209 are erroneously numbered 107 and 109 which, according to Willems (#452) and others, indicates the earliest printing. "Barclay's Euphormionis Lusinini Satyricon (1603-7) - a severe satire on the Jesuits, the medical profession, and contemporary scholarship, education, and literature - is modeled on the style of the Roman satirist Gaius Petronius Arbiter; it is an urbane and facile mixture of prose and verse. Filled with villians and rogues, it contributed to the later development of the picaresque novel" (EB). 717 p. with an engraved title page. 12mo. Period full vellum binding, with holographic titles on the spine. Some minor soiling to the vellum; else very good. Very good. Item #69657
