Samuel Puffendorf (Pufendorf)
1710 Introduction a l'Histoire. l'Europe, Samuel Puffendorf. 19 fold-out maps.
Leide (Leiden): Chez Pierre Vander Aa, 1710. See pictures. Edge and corner wear, occasional rub or spot to boards, some loss of spine decoration and a little chipping at spine tops (but all head-bands present). Fourth volume has square ghost of smaller book on its top board, and a 1" crack at top of front joint. Top-edges of text blocks slightly darker from dust. Pencil "128" at verso of v1. flyleaf. Some bookbinder notes at rear of each volume. Some toning throughout, and a little foxing (not bad). Occasionally there's a little damage at the gutter of the fold of the maps, but mostly they're in great shape. In summary, it seems to me that these books are in contemporary bindings and have had very little use, and were stored well, leaving the maps and text blocks in good condition. A handsome four-volume history of Europe, complete set, illustrated with portraits of Europe's leaders (Louis XIV, Charles V, Leopold I, among others), with nineteen fold-out maps and one fold-out dedicatory leaf (bound at the start of the second book). Most of the fold-out maps (excepting just several) are multi-fold and extend to approx. 31 x 22 cm. They are named: Book one (Volumes 1 and 2) - 1. p4 - Orbis Terrarum - Lugdi Batav. Apud Petrum Vander Aa 2. p64 - L'Europe 3. p75 - Carte de l'Espagne 4. p198 - Algarbiaem/Portugalliae 5. p255 - Britannia Magna 6. p258 - Anglia 7. p292 - Scotia 8. p326 - Hibernia 9. p444 - La France Book two (Volumes 3 and 4) 1. p12 - Les Provinces Unies des Paysbas 2. p108 - La Suisse 3. p144 - l'Allemagni 4. p222 - Le Danemarc 5. p290 - La Suede 6. p468 - Mer Ba … [Click Below for Full Description]
