* “New Emperor Chronicle or History Book of All Roman Emperors, Eastern and Western”. In 17th century Dutch, this is the longest book title we have! The main attraction of this book is the depiction of numerous ancient coins and medals, although the descriptions of the emperors in prose and poetry is nice, too, if you can read the language. With a large attractive 17th century bookplate: two leopards holding a coat of arms with a winged dragon. Under this, a dragon with heads on both ends, each devouring a leopard. Unfortunately we don’t know the name of the owner.

* Opus magnum van de jurist, geschiedkundige en munt- en penningverzamelaar Mr. Gerard van Loon (1683-1758) over de geschiedenis van Nederland. Het eerste deel gaat over de Romeinen, de Bataven en de Kaninefaten en wat daarvan resteert: de Brittenburg bij Katwijk bijvoorbeeld, naast de vele munten waar Van Loon extra op gespitst was. Het tweede deel gaat over de periode 600-1200, waarbij de uitvoerigheid en de precieze details de moderne lezer blijven imponeren – Van Loon verzamelde zijn materiaal in een tijd waarin er van archeologie nog geen sprake was. Dit schitterende, reuzengrote boekwerk heeft hier een heel eenvoudig kleedje: de hap-snap-gemaakte banden zijn sleets en in deel twee is zo te zien een kopje thee omver gegaan.
Maar je kunt het nog altijd genietend doorbladeren en turen naar de hypergedetailleerde, barokke kopergravures, zoals deze:
== Ancient History of Holland (between 0 and 1200 AD) seen through an 18th century historian’s eyes. These two (internally) beautiful, gigantic volumes have a very simple dress: the higgledy-piggledy bindings are jaded and worn and in Vol. Two a cup of tea seems to have been knocked over. Van Loon was a great coin collector and these books (especially vol. I) are littered with tiny, accurate engravings of coins and medals. Shipping these books overseas may cost about 130 euros, I think.
