Description: Title vignette, 26 half-page engravings and decorative woodcut vignettes and initials throughout. 419pp + 4pp table. Small 8vo, old mottled calf with gilt spine, leather spine label (bottom piece of spine end missing, lacks frontispiece and half-title, corners bumped). Amstelodami: Abrahamum a Someren, 1692. A very good copy, with pages quite clean and bright.

Comments: This work, first published in 1521, established the new literary genre of Marconic verse. The longest piece in the work is a fantastical story in which a prince and his cohorts meet their doom inside a giant pumpkin, where such "liars" as poets, philosophers, etc. are tortured by such methods as diabolical dentistry. Brunet 1319. Brunet notes that this edition may have been published in Naples.
