An interesting title page surrounded by allegorical figures and heraldic symbols; fidelity and fortune grace either side and a city prospect of Argentina, the ancient name for Strasbourg, is at the base of the architectural form. A previous owner added his brown ink manuscript signature, unobtrusive on the highly decorated page. Title printed in red and black.
Lovely impression and adequate margins. Even age toning and a small area of minor surface soiling.
