Lacks everything after 2i6; outer half of p89 excised, last leaf trimmed and mounted. Faint scattered browning and dampstain. The colored woodcuts are in excellent condition. Sold as is. Chasseneux's encyclopedic text deals with the structure of various religious, political, and social spheres, and the woodcuts represent such subjects as the nine choirs of angels, the order of precedence in the church or among the nobility, and the divisions of the arts and sciences or occupations," Harvard/Mortimer-French 136 (1529 original edition).
