Christopher Lehmann
1662 Florilegium Politicum.- Christopher Lehmann. Fine binding. German proverbs.
Frankfurt: John Gottfiedt Schonwett, 1662. See pictures. Binding is in a wonderful condition. Loss of bottom right corner of one blank unpaginated front endpaper, chipping around both blank endpapers.

Between the two sections of the book someone pasted in, at the foreedge, a small piece of metal that delineates the start of the second work/section. Very last printed page (register) has some loss at foreedge that doesn't affect text. A rich repertory of German proverbs from the early 17th century (this is a later edition). Title translates roughly, Flowers of Politics, Political Sentiments, Doctrines, Regulations, Expressions of Theology, Juris, Political, Historical, Philosophy, and the Poets. The Germans claim that this was one of the best collections for many years.
