Description

LUDOLFO, Jobo. Sciagraphia Historiae Aethiopicae, sive regni abessinorum, quod vulgo Presbyteri Johannis vocatur, Deo volente, aliquando in lucem proditurae, auctorè Jobo Ludolfo. Jenae: Ex Officina Orientali Samuel Krebsii, 1676 Later boards, Fcap.4to. [20 cm.] 40pp. title printed in red and black, errata.

This is a brief “prospectus” for Ludolf’s Historia, first published in 1681. Some spotting throughout, bookplate of A. A. Bonar, from the library of Dr. Juel-Jensen with his Amharic bookplate, a very nice copy in eighteenth century boards. [Fumagalli 1427; Streit XVI, 4572; not in Black.]
