In 1876 the city of Antwerp became the owner of the "Officina Plantiniana", which housed over 300 years of correspondence. The present set also contains letters by some of Plantin's successors, including Jan Moretus. Bindings slightly rubbed along the extremities, spine of the third volume discoloured. Overall in very good condition.
