8vo, pp. [xiv], 56, [viii], 252, [20], 130, [6] + engraved half-title. Several wood engravings within the text. Eighteenth-century red turkey (perhaps Irish), boards bordered with a double gilt rule enclosing a dashed gilt rule, spine elaborately gilt in compartments with a sunburst pattern made up of smaller tools, green morocco label, marbled endpapers, edges mottled red and blue. A little minor spotting. Spine slightly sunned, a touch of rubbing to extremities, a few marks. Early purchase inscription to half-title: ‘G.S. 1-0’, modern bookplate to front pastedown.


A lovely copy of this edition of the Satyricon and other texts with erotic connections, edited by the Frisian scholar Simon Abbes Gabbema (1628-1668). The binding is certainly either Irish or British and the style is suggestive of the former.
