Les Vrays Pourtraits ou Images des Comtes et Comtesses de Hollande; Trouvés anciennement dans le Cloitre des Carmes à Haarlem. Avec le Vray Pourtrait du Noble & fameux Seigneur Gerard de Velsen; avec le Tombeau du Comte Floris 5me
[Leyden?], nd [ca. 1699] - French issue of the atlas volume of HOLLANDSCHE JAAR-BOEKEN OF RIJM- KRONIJK, the third edition (Leyden, 1699), and first illustrated, of Melis Stoke's (ca. 1235-1305) medieval chronicle. With 35 engravings after paintings in the Carmelite Monastery at Haarlem of medieval Dutch royalty, with the final plate a smiling Death. The Leyden 1699 edition is relatively common, while this issue with French title page and no imprint, is scarce. We locate only one institutional copy worldwide, at the New York Public, which, like the present copy, omits Stoke's text and contains only the 35 plates. The French title suggests that the plates were issued alone Folio (16-1/2 x 10-1/4 inches). 35 engraved plates (one double page), some titled in contemporary hand. Uncut, in contemporary marbled wrappers, binding split and perished, two leaves with minor marginal repair, plates clean. Brunet V 547 , Lipperheide 939, Graesse VI, 502 (all for Leyden, 1699 edition); for this edition: Guigard IV, 3067 (citing the copy in "Catalogue des livres rare et curieux de Francisque Michel") [Attributes: Soft Cover]
