First edition. (Breslauer & Folter 101, Petzholdt 281-282). The third supplement to Georgi's ambitious Allgemeines Europäisches Bücher-Lexicon. This work "represents the last attempt to list all the books ever printed (up to 1757)." A good source for information on 17th century German books. This supplement contains a complete A-Z listing with all book sizes and prices listed. Among the topics represented are theology, medicine, physics, geography, arithmetic, chemistry and history. Georgi, who also provides a forword, was a Leipzig bookseller and publisher. Decorative head and trail pieces. Boards detached with considerable wear and stamped with "Mercantile Library Co." Pages foxed and brittle. Library stamp on title page. Spine lacking.
