Wien, k. k. Hof- und Staatsdruckerei, 1817.. Two parts in one volume. Paginated consecutively. Quarto. Pp. viii, 57 (verso blank); 59-164, (1) Errata. Plus 11 folding lithographic plates. Shoulder notes in petit font. Hardcover, bound in contemporary brown half cloth and matching marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt, sprinkled edges, old shelf ticket to spine, old military institutional stamps to title. In a very good condition. Rather fine, wide-margined copy, preserved entirely in the original state. ~ First edition. Jordan 1600. The fine plates were drawn directly on the lithography stone by Kohl von Zach. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios but has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms.
