Second, enlarged 25th anniversary edition. An attractive work of imperial representation commemorating the ninth centenary of the founding of the Holy Roman Empire.

The engraved title shows a triumphal procession for Charles VI, featuring the Emperor on horseback, led by a group of angels and warriors as well as by Christ himself. The engravings were created by Johannes Andreas Pfeffel, Johann Ulrich Kraus, and Christian Engelbrecht. First published in 1700 in Vienna.

The pretty brocade wrappers are slightly rubbed. Paper somewhat dusty; corner tears to first two leaves repaired with paper.
