Genealogie, Geschiedenis, Portugal, Biografieën - Aantal: 1 - Boek

A volume in large folio (39.9 x 27.5 cm), bound in full antique leather, spine with ribs, gold embossing and label (top and bottom spine is somewhat worn).

48 pp., including the copper-engraved frontispiece and the typographic title page, 986 pp., 7 unnumbered sheets. With 34 full-page copper-engraved plates, most of them are full-length portraits of members of the Sousa dynasty. Tops, vignettes, culs de lamp, and copper engravings in the text.

Small hole in the upper inner corner, without affecting the text, from page 159 to 213 and 895 to 951, and in the outer side from page 219 to 244.

Some sheets are foxed.

Salvá, 3603, who describes it as a magnificent volume, says: ‘The edition is beautiful and each biography comes with a beautiful portrait engraved in copper by Giffart, and a praise in verse at last. I suppose it was paid by Carlos José de Ligne, married to a descendant of the house of Sousa, and there is no doubt few copies were printed and they were distributed privately’; Inocêncio, VI, p. 114.

Illustrated history of the House of Sousa, one of the main noble families of Portugal, whose origin dates back to the times of the Visigoth kings.
It is a rare work, rarely for sale.
