Folio. Engraved title, 37 full-page engravings of coins and 2 full-page maps. Contemporary vellum over board, manuscript titling on spine. This is the first volume issued by the Plantin Press of Goltzius's Opera Omnia. The popularity of Goltzius's works demanded a profusion of editions after they were first published in the 16th century. Though focused on numismatics in ancient Greece and Sicily, the works cover far broader historical subjects. The engraved title is after another enthusiast of ancient medals, Peter Paul Rubens. Minor browning throughout, front board slightly bowed with some slight associated splitting along joint, small wormtracks at foot of spine. Bookseller Inventory #
