Bound with the Opitz is another rare book: Musaeus Grammaticus' Deschonen Poeten Lieb-und Lob-gedichte von Hero und Leandern, Aus dem Griechischen in Hochteutsche. Published in Leipzig, Andreas Ohlen, Buchhendlers, 1633.
This second volume with one page with an edge trim, not affecting text. 32pp. Both volumes in what I think is a late 17th Century full brown calf binding with gilt ruling to both boards & spine with finely engraved title page. Small loss of leather near to the bottom of front hinge and general age wear but overall still sound and tight. Internally in good condition with some offsetting from text to opposite page, light spotting, browning to pages and light stain to bottom right corner from page 200 onwards, ink contemporary doodles to front free endpaper and ink marks/scribbles to pages 125-6, not affecting text. Worming to bottom left of first seven pages, however the first page of the dedication (mis numbered 233/234 and with edges trimmed) doesn't have worming, which suggests it was, at one time, further back in the book. The last page of dedication has a repaired tear across the page and is still quite legible.
