1 Bowyer, Robert An Illustrated Record of Important Events in the Annals of Europe, During the Years 1812, 1813, 1814, & 1815. Comprising a Series of Views of Paris, Moscow, the Kremlin, Dresden, Berlin, the Battles of Leipsic, etc. etc. etc. Together with a History of Those Moentous Transactions.
London T. Bensley, for R. Bowyer 1815 First edition Half Calf. Marbled Boards. Very Good 
Folio, 46 by 32 cm. 76 pp. Eighteen hand-colored aquatint plates, four of which are folding. One b/w map plate. Also bound in, in slightly smaller size, are two b/w plates bound in at front, showing in one, portraits of the top figures in France (the royal family, the Bonaparte family, generals and statesmen), and in the other, portraits of the top British personages (and of their allies), with a hand-written key of names of the cameos on the back. Abbey Life 352. The work is complicated bibliographically, with another title used by Bowyer, "The Triumph of Europe", and various plate counts, with most copies coming with fewer than the present volume. While this copy doesn't have the Porto Ferrajo plate, it is still arguably complete. Some scattered light to moderate soiling -- finger smudging mainly. Some flattened paper creases. Still, overall on the clean side, with the pictorial images of the plates bright. Later half-calf binding with light scuffs and a few stain spots but still attractive.

London Adam and Charles Black 1900 Half Morocco, Marbled Boards Very Good 
This edition was Issued as two volumes, here re-organized as four half morocco bound volumes. The pages have light age toning. The brown morocco is lightly sunned on the spine, and there are a few small scuffs and other wear at the extremities and in the corners. Volume IV has a dampstain on the lower spine and onto the leather of the front board. No water damage internally. Still, the leather remains quite vibrant, and this is thus an attractive, economical leather set.

Schraubthaler Depicting the Expulsion of the Entire Protestant Community from Salzburg in 1731, Remshard, Abraham
5 Remshard, Abraham Schraubthaler Depicting the Expulsion of the Entire Protestant Community from Salzburg in 1731
Amsterdam 1732 or 1733 
The panorama or concertina was made, we believe, in 1732 or 1733, or close to that date. The silver "shraubthaler" or outer casing we assume was made separately, at a later date, but not long afterward.
