A mid 18th century copy of Jacob Cats' Thoughts on Sleepless Nights.
Jacob Cats was a 17th century Dutch poet, jurist, and even a politician for a period of time. Today, he is most well regarded for his emblematic poetical books, and continues to be fairly popular for it as well.
One volume in 8vo, 238 pages
There is one beautifully engraved title page, as well as 28 other engravings within the text. The original 1769 copy calls for two illustrated title pages.
On note of condition, this volume is bound in a very simple paper cover, which is fairly worn and peeling along the spine. Part of the first title page has also been cut off, but the rest of the interior is fine.
