In 'A Dialog on Polygamy' the Famous Italian Reformer; Bernardino Ochino, presents both sides of the polygamy argument, and it's hilarious! This book contains both the modern font version (with minor variations in the wording to make it easier for the modern reader) and the 18th century version for purists. That version was first printed in 1732 and again in 1736. I've personally seen both versions and they're identical. This particular reproduction is from the 1736 version. What is of note is that there is none of the markings typical of reproductions. This book is immaculate. The page numbering is mirrored in the new and old versions to make cross referencing easier. Beyond the interesting topic this book provides, it's a useful teaching aid for those learning 18th century fonts. An earlier version of A Dialog on Polygamy was translated but it lacks the unique flow of English prose that this one contains.
