    Encyclopaedia Britannica says: "Barclay's Euphormionis Lusinini Satyricon - 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 villains and rogues, it contributed to the later development of the picaresque novel". Premier Ainsi. Demi cuir avec planches texturées. Six panneaux en relief à décor doré d'époque. Pages de garde imprimées à la main. Tous les bords des pages sont rouges. Les plats et le dos sont en bon état, avec seulement de légers frottements. Coins et tranches légèrement émoussés. À l'intérieur, il y a un ex-libris de la bibliothèque hongroise à l'avant et quelques petits timbres de la bibliothèque hongroise. La page de titre comporte des notes manuscrites à l'encre et une zone qui semble avoir été brûlée par une bougie. Sinon, quelques rousseurs sporadiques, mais généralement très bien pour son âge. [24], 728 pages. 205 x 130 mm (8 x 5 pouces).
    L'Encyclopaedia Britannica dit : « Euphormionis Lusinini Satyricon de Barclay - une satire sévère sur les jésuites, la profession médicale et l'érudition, l'éducation et la littérature contemporaines - est calquée sur le style du satiriste romain Gaius Petronius Arbiter ; c'est un mélange courtois et facile de prose et de vers. Rempli de méchants et de coquins, il a contribué au développement ultérieur du roman picaresque ».
