 opposite side being blank. This is a sumptuous presentation
 of the great medallic history of "Sun King" Louis XIV, whose
 meticulously organized Academy assured a remarkable uniformity
 of classically oriented designs. Octavo, 11¼ x8¼ inches. Spine
 and cover are elaborately gold-stamped with traces of book
 plate removal on the inside cover, a few calligraphic notes
 in minute script appear on several pages from an unknown
 early owner.
