These 4 works are bound together in CONTEMPORARY VELLUM COVERED BOARDS, blind tooled vellum, handwritten title on spine, 3.5" x 6.25", page edges stained black, FOUR WORKS IN THIS ONE VOLUME, all title pages present. ILLUSTRATED with some engraved Printer's Devices and Tail Pieces.

CONDITION: .Vellum Covers are splitting for 1 inch at the top of the spine fold, have a 1x1 inch piece of vellum missing from the bottom of the rear cover, are soiled / darkened / age toned, the spine has especially darkened making the manuscript spine title difficult to read, and there are remnants of a paper label to the bottom of the spine; nonetheless, the vellum covers are still attractive in a Harry Potter Hogwarts' Library way. Internally, the, front and rear hinges have split exposing the inner spine of the text block; there is a previous owner's name and date on the front pastedown "Ern. Zimmermann / Gerv. 1812"; there is a lovely circular red stamp of "Bucherei Friedelhausen" on the blank page facing the title page; several leaves in the Kirchmann work (the first work) have small pieces missing : the title page has a small piece neatly cut out (perhaps removing a previous owner's name?); the bottom front margin area of pages 639/640 (Rr8) is torn away, affecting some text; the upper corners of pages 725/726, 729/730 and 731/732 (Zz3, Zz 5 & 6) are torn away, each affecting only a bit of text; there are some early relevant margin notes, in Latin; the pages are lightly browned / aged; there is some foxing, creasing, edge wear, here and there throughout; overall the inner pages of this approximately 400 year old book are in remarkable shape, still tight, bright, clean, clear and fully legible.

FOUR IMPORTANT WORKS, EACH VERY SCARCE ON ITS OWN. Copies of any of these four works are normally found in Rare Book Rooms of Major Universities and National Libraries (e.g. the Austrian National Library).
