With an engraved architectural title-page showing (above) Orpheus charming animals with a violin and (below) Actaeon with a stag"s head about to be attacked by his dogs after surprising the naked Artemis/Diana and her handmaid, while the pilasters on either side have images of animals and hunting weapons and equipment. 13 full-page engraved illustrations (plus 8 repeats) on integral leaves, depicting hunting, hawking, fishing and fowling, they and the title-page engraved by N. Perrey, woodcut initials (3 series) and tailpieces, cast fleurons. [56], 635, [1 blank] pp.


Second edition (with new and more extensive illustrations and some additions) of one of the most noted Italian books on hunting, also including falconry, fishing and husbandry. Bartolomeo Fontana in Raimondi"s native Brescia published the first edition in 1621, but it contained only 7 woodcuts. On pp. 41-78 ""the different kinds of falcons and hawks are described, as well as the method of training and flying the goshawk and sparrow-hawk, the former of which was much used in Italy in the seventeenth century for taking partridges and pheasants.' While on pp. 80-137 'the qualities of a good falconer are noted, the mode of training falcons, making them to the hood, &c., and general advice as to feeding and mounting"" (Harting). The author drew largely on information from previous writers on the subject: the present edition adds a table of 84 authors from whom he borrowed, facing page 1.

With the engraved armorial bookplate (on paste-down) and embossed armorial stamp (in foot margin of title-page) of José Gaetano Mazziotti Selema Garção (1893-1961). Leaf K4 and possibly some other leaves with engravings appear to have been sophisticated at an early date, so that they are no longer conjugate. With an old repair to a tear in one engraving (K4) also slightly affecting the tailpiece on the back and with some modern marginal restorations; but otherwise in good condition, with some worm holes in the upper gutter margin of quires X-Z, not touching the text; some marginal browning. The vellum was secured to the book block only by the headbands and paste-downs, but the former have broken at 3 of the 4 connections and the first free end leaf has been removed, leaving the vellum only loosely attached, but revealing the binding structure and the printed waste use to line the spine. With a tear repaired in the vellum of the binding. One of the most noted Italian books on hunting, in the much better illustrated second edition.

Harting, Bibl. Accipitraria 277; Schwerdt II, p. 123; Souhart, col 394; cf. Nissen, ZBI 3273 (later editions).
