Chronik des Königlich Preußischen hohen Ordens vom Schwarzen Adler während des Grossmeisterthums des Erlauchten Stifters, 1701-1713. Auf Anordnung des königlichen Ober- und Ordens-Ceremonienmeisters Freiherrn von Stillfried. Als Manuscript gedruckt.
Berlin, Eduard Haenel's Buchdruckerei,1855.. Quarto. Pp. iv, 83. Hardcover, bound in green full cloth with the original printed wrappers bound-in, spine-ends gilt-ruled; inner hinges bit darkened front wrap dusty, very vague dampmark at lower corner of some leaves slightly more visible on title-page. In a very good condition. ~ First edition. Extremely rare. There exists some certain unclarity regarding the author's first name, with some sources claim it to be "Fraugott" (see for example Henning & Herfurth: "Orden und Ehrenzeichen: Handbuch der Phaleristik"); while others (WorldCat) insist on "Traugott". ~ Provenance: From the library of C. P. Mulder, renowned collector and international heraldry authority, with his charming armorial bookplate,"Nil Desperandum", to first free endpaper. For a complete catalogue of Mulder's library, from which we offer a considerable number of items, see: C. P. Mulder: "Catalogue of Works on Orders, Decorations and Medals in the Library of C. P. Mulder" (Rotterdam, 1988). See also: C. P. Mulder & A. A. Purves: "Bibliography of Orders and Decorations" (Copenhagen, 1999).
