Abree De L'Histoire Des Empereurs D'Occident Depuis Charlemagne Jusqu'a Francois Etienne De Lorraine A Present Regnant. Enrichais De Leurs Portraits et De Ceux Des Imperatrices
Basset, [c.1750]. [19ff]. Engraved title and 18 engraved plates. Eighteenth-century, likely original marbled paper wraps. Worn, with some loss to spine, wear to extremities. Plates themselves with some light water-staining and marking, wear to margins. Consisting of an engraved title page and 18 further engraved plates depicting the portraits and genealogy of the title of Holy Roman Emperor from its inception until 1745, commencing with Charlemagne and depicting most of the subsequent holders of the position. The latest Emperor depicted, with his Empress, is Francois Etienne de Lorraine, who succeeded Charles VII in 1745. The presence of Emperor Francois's portrait proves that dating of this work to 1720 is entirely spurious. A rare survivor in wraps. . Large Folio.
