Leipzig: Bey Moritz George Weidmann, 1722. Hardcover. Fair. 1721-1722. 2 vols. now bound in 1. 257 (of 393) plates, 372 [i.e.414], [6], 440, [12]p. Hardcover in old vellum which had been painted or lacquered red. 35cm. Cover rather heavily scuffed removing many small pieces of the red paint/lacquer. Lacks 136 plates. Text has some browning but is generally sound and clean. Vol. I has a square (2-3cm.) piece replaced on edge of title-leaf which also has a couple of indecipherable purple rectanglar stamps on the verso. German text. Most of the missing plates were probably in Vol. I (rulers and royalty) since that volume now has less than 90 while Vol. II (nobility) has over 160. The second volume has a different title (except for the first few words). These two volumes were apparently published (or first published) as an appendix to Khevenhuller's massive Annales Ferdinandei (1721-1726).
