CICÉRON

Orationum. Volumen III. Lyon, Antoine Gryphe, 1567.
In-16, 720 pp. and 31 ff.n.ch.: fawn calf, gilt fillet, circular gilt mark in the center, spine decorated with gilt fillets and a small iron repeated, gilt edges (contemporary binding).
Rare specimen of binding with the pelican mark of Jérôme Marnef.
Bookseller in Paris, Jérôme de Marnef worked from 1546 to 1595, Sub Pelicano monte D. Hilarii, under the sign of the Pelican, rue St. Jean de Beauvais, at the corner of rue du Mont-St-Hilaire.
The golden mark stamped on the plates represents a pelican turned to the right in an oval.
Gruel reproduced two of the known irons (Manuel de l'amateur de reliures II, 1905, p. 119) and Georges Colin listed five specimens with this mark, including the present one.
Very restored binding.
(Colin, Marques de libraires et d'éditeurs, in Mélanges Hobson, 1994, p. 103, no. 3: curiously, four of the specimens listed were printed in Lyon for Antoine Gryphe).
