[ff] 108; *8 An elaborately illustrated Basel printing of the official handbook of the civil and military officials in the later Roman Empire with their insignia pictorially represented. Historiated capital letters with 88 full page woodcuts and 33 in the text, excellent impressions depicting Roman offices, insignia and personified regions and countries such as 'Macedonia Dacia' and even Britain. Bound in half calf, attractively rebacked, old paper-covered boards, new endpapers; text complete as called for; 3mm puncture to the title page over the 'I' of Occidentis; large paper repair to the final leaf containing Froben's emblem on the verso - not affecting image; three wormholes to the last few leaves. Minor staining to the first and last few leaves otherwise a very good and indeed robust copy of this beautifully printed work from one of the early centres of humanist printing in Europe.
