Also contains a genealogy of the Imperial family, starting with Emperor Ferdinand I.

Some foxing throughout; binding slightly rubbed and brownstained. Spine and hinges reinforced by a paper strip, traces of glue visible on spine. Handwritten ownership of the Austro-Hungarian soldier Gyula Radány (1828-98), who served in the war of 1849, to the title-page.
