12o (128 x 72 mm). Contemporary (Austrian or Bohemian?) sprinkled calf, spine richly gilt. Provenance: Christ. Lud. von Tieffenbach (eighteenth-century bookplate and signature on title); Martin Breslauer (his inventory number BB 19,102 penciled on inside lower cover); Martin Bodmer (original index card from his catalogue); H.P. Kraus (bookplate).

Beughem's most substantial single compilation, "in which he continued his attempt at a classified universal bibliography of works published since 1650. This time Beughem reached nearly 800 pages, in which he describes the works of nearly 2,500 writers. A substantial part of the book, however, is taken up by a so-called Museum Beughemianum, which would seem to be by many years the first iconography ... with a list of portraits in marbles, coins, gems, &c., of about 6,000 eminent persons, set out alphabetically within ... (six) divisions" (Besterman).
