(Apud Ioan. Tornaesiumapud Ioannem Tornaesium, 1551)
This little book is an earlier edition of what had long been the oldest book in the collection, listed under 1619? This book is Bodemann #29. What a great thing! Bodemann's twenty-ninth oldest book! See my description ...

(Printed at the Chiswick Press by C. Whittingham for J. Carpenter J. Booker, Sharpe and Hailes, and J. Carr,, 1813)
This is a curious find. At first it seems very similar to two smaller books, published in 1839 and 1841, with which it shares the words emblematical devices and a title-page illustration of a man seated in the countryside ...
