REYNARD THE FOX, available at auction--of interest to fans of Amazon's BOSCH

Swann Auction Galleries April 9, 2015 auction, Early Printed, Medical, Science & Travel Books includes a 1681 Edition of a verse adaptation of Reynard the Fox.  Perhaps the eventual buyer will be associated with the Amazon Series, Bosch, since Season 1 focused on a serial killer named Reynard, and the medieval epic was key to plot line.  I am not familiar with Michael Connelly the author of the Bosch crime novel series but I expect they too would be a prime interest group for this auction.

This appears to be a nice edition and certainly for the right buyer, the price is reasonable.  A low ball starting bid of $250 might even be a winning bid.
