Gueudeville, Nicolas. Le Grand Théâtre Historique Ou Histoire Universelle, Tant Sacrée Que Profane, Depuis La Création Du Monde Jusqu'au Commencement Du XVIIIès... Leiden: Pieter Van Der Aa, 1703. First edition. Five volumes in three, folio. Profusely illustrated with copper engravings including a double page world map, several double page battle scenes, full page portraits and plates within the text. Contemporary mottled calf, a very appealing copy.
First and probably only edition. A fantastically illustrated history of the world from the beginning to the date of publication. Peiter Van Der Aa's publications deserve far more attention for their quality of illustration, and this is perhaps his "magnum opus". (#kfk183)
