Cantel, Pierre Joseph, SJ. De romana republica, sive de re militari & civili romanorum, ad explicandos scriptores antiquos.

Utrecht, Frans Halm, 1691.

8vo. (22), 390 pp. With woodcut printer's device on title-page, engraved frontispiece, 1 folding engr. tables, 1 folding engr. map, and 12 engr. plates (6 folding). Contemporary vellum with ms. title to spine and front cover. Edges sprinkled in red.


Third edition of this frequently reprinted work (first printed in Paris in 1684).

The plates (mostly by T. Doesburgh and A. de Winter) show a map of classical Rome, costumes, circus games, a triumphal procession, coins, etc.

Occasionally slightly browned due to paper; altogether a pretty copy in an attractive contemporary vellum binding.
