Omstandig en waaragtig verhaal van veele gepleegde en nooit gehoorde diefstallen:

Als voornamentlyk aan de zeer beruchte Goude Tafel (...) En een groot aantal Huisbraaken, listige en behendige ontsluiting van welgesloote Huizen en gewelfde Kelders, allerwegen in Duitsland gepleegd. By M.S.H. [= Siegmund Hosemann]. Translated from High German. Amsterdam, H. Schelte, 1710, (6),377,(17) p., with 10 (of 11) engraved portraits, 2 (large) folding engraved plates and 1 other plate, old half parchment binding, small 4to.

Very poor copy lacking two leafs from the preliminary pages, a portrait and a plate of the Golden Table, one folding plate is incomplete. Very rare. Besides the earlier defects, this copy also possesses a defect that, in the light of the subject, still adds something: in numerous places, the contents have been provided with the owner's stamp of the "Bataillon Cantine Mineurs et Sappeurs", as if the stamper aspired to discourage any reader inspired by the text in an indecent fashion from spontaneous bouts of kleptomania.
