A small account on recent Polish history. Like the two copies of Hertzliches Seyten-Spiel … this book is decorated with a fine dedication to Frederik III, straw mosaic on light blue silk, in the same wording as the dedication in the King’s copy of Hertzliches Seyten-Spiel. These luxuriously decorated books may be connected to the Pole Stanislav Lubieniecki, who was the head of a controversial theological movement and stayed in Copenhagen for a few months in 1660-1661.
This copy is bound in black morocco with gilt decorations.
12.9 x 7.3 cm.
