Amstelaedami: Franciscus Halma 1707. Folio. 2 works in 1 vol. (xiv 290 30pp.). Roman and italic letter woodcut-style engraved decorations and initials engraved vignettes to title-pages and to head of second work full-page engraved title to first main title in red and black 162 engraved medallions in first book. Light age-yellowing the odd thumb mark at the beginning light browning and foxing towards end a very good copy in 18th cent. diced Russia (rubbed) gilt dentelles and borders marbled edges rebacked wear to sides. First edition of a guide to the Roman Emperors with engravings of medallions from the collection of Queen Christina of Sweden. It was co-authored by Joannes Jacobus Hofmann and carries footnotes by Henricus Christianus Henninius; at the end is a long ode on the Emperors by Henricus Hamelow. The book has a very unclear pagination and collation and lists emperors out of chronological sequence (the pagination making it clear that the leaves should be placed here). An exhaustive checking points to its being complete.
