A Postdam, chez Chrétien Horvath, 1799-1800. 14 in-8 books bound in one volume, long-grained red morocco, smooth spine ornamented, dent. on boards, dent. intér. and on edges, gilt tr. (Rel. anc.).

Our copy is complete with all the plates mentioned in the tables, plus four others not mentioned, but the number of plates may vary from one copy to another; that of the famous Ch.
