    AUGSBURG 1690 -- WIELAND, Johann Friedrich. Das hoch-beehrte Augspurg, oder, Wahrgründliche Vorstellung der hochwichtigen Handlung- und Verrichtungen So Bey und nach dem Hoch-erfreulichsten Einzug beyder röm. kayserl. Majestäten... vorgegangen... Augsburg: Jacob Koppmayer, 1690.

    4o (200 x 163 mm). 16 engraved plates (8 folding) after JOHANN WIDNER. Contemporary half vellum (light rubbing to edges).

    The volume describes and illustrates the coronation ceremony of ELEONORA MAGDALENA THERESIA (1655-1720) of the Palatinate, third wife of Leopold I (1640-1705), as empress and the coronation of their son JOSEPH (1678-1711), as Roman king. The fine large frontispiece depicts the portraits of the Imperial family and the electors over the panorama of Augsburg. The other finely excecuted plates include: medals, the electoral college, the coronation and the banquet, processions, and popular entertainment. The title runs over two pages. The work is dedicated by the printer to the Bavarian Elector Max Emanuel. Jantz 2713; Lipperheide Sba 21 (describes what is presumably the second edition with a slightly different title Das hochbeehrte Augspurg, wie solches nicht allein ..., 1690 and 18 plates); Vinet 674.
