Janssonium a Wasberge & Widow Wayerstraet
Copperplate frontispiece by Chr. Hagens + 103 text copperplates complete with the often missing brothel scene page 276.
Octavo worn calf spine extra gilt (worn to edges / hinges cracked and mainly held by cords / lacks label) All Edges Rouged 462pp +blanks +pp Indices (see Lamb 43 for collation & commentary). Very minor signs of use, the pages are crisp and supple, the book tight and neat. Frontis is shaved to the plate line and neatly strengthened on the blank verso with old paper but otherwise the margins do not encroach on text or illustrations. Copperplates on pp194, 205 were wrongly printed and they have had a the correct plate now glued in on top of the wrongly printed one, slight show through of glue to p206 but the text is entirely legible. The plates are about half page and are strongly printed and show life of the 1660's in fascinating detail.
