F. de Calvi - Histori oft pracktycke der dieven - Leyden, David Lopez de Haro, 1645 / Legende Ofte, Historye Vande snoode practijcquen, ende de behendige listicheden der Dieven. Overgeset uyt het Frans. Hier achter is noch by gevoecht Gielers Vocabulaer hael tael - Nievstadt, Cornelis Claesz. van Buren, 1649 - [16] + 773 pp. - blind-stamped parchment binding with borders, flowers and medallions.

Condition: good - very neat parchment binding, quires attached to block, but block can move; crisp and clean pages (p. 289/290 is missing its right side - see last picture). Complete.

The beautiful and detailed title engraving with the appropriate warning “Hout oogh int Seil”, surrounded by various scenes showing “snoode practijcquen”, is attributed to J.B. Holzinger. This title engraving is identical to that of the (less rare) edition of Lopez de Haro from 1645.

Most “listicheden der Dieven” take place in France, at the end some from the Netherlands. On page 656 an example of secret code in numbers of the “kleyers” [= thieves] and on the last 4 pages “Kleyers vocabulaer en haer tael”, with explanation of words from the 17th-century thieve language.

The STCN mentions only 2 copies of this edition.
