About this Item

40 pages. Folio, 442x330 mm, contemporary 1/4 vellum, spine darkened, chipped at top, with horizontal crack across bottom; front free endpaper loose. 26 (of 30) engraved plates by Pieter Nolpe after Post; four plates 18-21 have been replaced with remarkably skillfull pen-and-ink facsimiles, each signed "Joh. Luiscius v. Essen inv. & fec. 1768" on paper watermarked "C & I Honig." Exceedingly rare first edition of a collection of plates depicting the funeral procession of Frederick Henry, Prince of Orange. Although some might see the missing plates as a serious detraction, the replacement of them with facsimiles by an accomplished Dutch artist just over 100 years later makes this an even more interesting piece.
