1. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00177
Description: - Vol. 1: ff. 71; Vol. 2: ff. 117 - Vol. 1 bound, s. XX ineunte, in quarter brown suede over marbled boards. Vol. 2 bound, s. XVII, in brown calf, gold tooled; remains of 2 fore edge ties; rebacked, original spine laid down; later marbled endpapers; a remboitage. - On the first leaf of most books a small section has been clipped out, possibly to remove some identifying marks, and replaced with matching paper on which the original text was recopied by tracing. An early Huntington Library report mentions the presence of the bookplate of Don José Colón of Cáceres on the first page of Vol. 2 (Book IV); it is no longer in the book. The back pastedown bears a pencilled bookseller's notation "AY 81." Purchased from Maggs by Henry E. Huntington, 25 February 1926. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.
