Autore (by) JO: BAPTISTA DU HAMEL.

PARS PRIMA only (PART ONE ONLY of Two Parts).

VENETIIS (Venice) MDCCXXXI (1731). Ex Typographia Balleoniana.

Hardcovers, leather covered boards, bound with six cord bands, large thick volume, 8x11.5 inches, 866 pages.

Illustrated with a title page engraving, head and tail pieces, engraved title letters, and most notably approximately 60 (I tried to count them all but probably missed some) intricately detailed 2.5x2.25 inch in text woodcuts.

This particular copy is particularly interesting because of one of its flaws. The leaf composed of pages 551 and 552 is missing and has been replaced with hand copied text of the missing pages. The handwritten script is on 3 pages of a 4 page single fold sheet that has been bound in with string. The hand copied text appears to have been done at a time fairly contemporary with the printing of this book. The calligraphy is beautiful. The pages of hand calligraphy do have some edge chipping that affects a few words.

FAIR Condition: The covers are scraped, rubbed, and worn, with chips and some tears to the spine covering, and boards that are worn though at their corners and edges; nonetheless the covers are still holding together and doing their job. Internally, the front and rear hinges are completely split but holding together with the six cord binding; there are two ink stamps on the front free endpaper, both indicating the book was in Caraglio, Italy, at some point; the inner hinge is split at a number of places, holding together by the cord binding, but causing the overall binding to be somewhat shaky and the front page edges to be irregular; the text block is stiff with age; the leaf composed of pages 553 and 554 (following the hand written pages) has old yellowed tape repairs over its face and is almost (but not quite!) loose; some pages, including the title page, have shorelining / waterstaining, but the text and illustrations are always fully legible; there are some age spots, light stains and smudges, and other signs of age here and there; overall the inner pages are still bright, clean and clear, with printing that is fully legible throughout. Part One only of Two Parts, as noted above.

This 1731 Edition is the EARLIEST EDITION I could find online at the time of this writing.
