    Antuerpiae: Christophori Plantini, 1578. A fairly recent binding with the original (?) boards laid onto the new binding. label with title and label to spine. Presented from the rear to the front of the book. Plantin's printer's emblem* to the title page, and historiated initial to the first paragraph. The book ends with a royal privilege from Emperor Maximilian II. The fairly recent binding is tidy, with a little rubbing to the spine edge only. The original binding has been neatly laid onto the leather, in a contrasting colour. New end papers. On the front end paper is the inscription "ex lib Guil Whitington 1679" Some of the pages to the beginning of the book have been neatly conserved and rebuilt to the corners. The rest of the book is in clean, if slightly darkened condition. Overall a very nice copy. Christophe Plantin (1520-1589) was a Dutch typographer and printer. He was to suffer frequently due to the religious struggles of the time (his press once confiscated for heresy) and the political upheavals. Despite this, his firm continued until the 1860's and the building which housed it is now the Plantin-Moretus Museum. (the Spanish destroyed Antwerp whilst he was based there). * Plantin's emblem carries the motto "Labore et Constantia" ("By Labour and Constancy") surrounds the symbol of a compass held by a hand extending from a bank of clouds and inscribing a circle. The centre point of the compass indicates constancy, the moving point which renders the circle is the labour. Une reliure assez récente avec les plats d'origine (?) posés sur la nouvelle reliure. étiquette avec titre et étiquette au dos. Présenté de l'arrière vers l'avant du livre. Emblème de l'imprimeur Plantin* sur la page de titre, et initiale historiée au premier paragraphe. Le livre se termine par un privilège royal de l'empereur Maximilien II. La reliure assez récente est soignée, avec quelques frottements sur le bord du dos seulement. La reliure d'origine a été soigneusement collée sur le cuir, dans une couleur contrastée. Nouveaux papiers de fin. Sur le premier papier se trouve l'inscription « ex lib Guil Whitington 1679 ». Certaines des pages du début du livre ont été soigneusement conservées et reconstruites jusqu'aux coins. Le reste du livre est dans un état propre, quoique légèrement noirci. Dans l'ensemble un très bel exemplaire. Christophe Plantin (1520-1589) était un typographe et imprimeur néerlandais. Il souffrira fréquemment des luttes religieuses de l'époque (sa presse autrefois confisquée pour hérésie) et des bouleversements politiques. Malgré cela, son entreprise perdura jusque dans les années 1860 et le bâtiment qui l'abritait est aujourd'hui le Musée Plantin-Moretus. (les Espagnols ont détruit Anvers alors qu'il y était basé). * L'emblème de Plantin porte la devise "Labore et Constantia" ("Par le travail et la constance") entoure le symbole d'une boussole tenue par une main s'étendant d'un banc de nuages ​​et inscrivant un cercle. Le point central de la boussole indique la constance, le point mobile qui rend le cercle est le travail. [xvi], 1-447, [viii]. pp
