[P. Rabus] De Boekzaal van Europe

Ontsloten met de Maanden Julius en Augustus 1692 - Gesticht door P. Rabus. November en December 1698. Rotterdam, P. van der Slaart, 1692-1698, 24 (of 57) volumes in 8 (of 19) volumes, each volume with ca. 600 pages, contemporary uniform calf with ribbed, gilt back, small 8vo.

Bookblocks here and there small defects (such as wormholes, stains etc.); bindings lack morocco title shields and are partly lightly damaged on spine ends and corners of boards. Rare bimonthly magazine, the first science magazine in Dutch. Even single volumes rarely come onto the market, large series such as this even less so. The important magazine was continued for another century under different names. According to PiCarta, complete sets of our edition must consist of the volumes July-December 1692 to November-December 1701. Our series consists of the complete volumes 1692 (therefore one volume, the binder mistakenly stated "II" on the spine), 1697 and 1698 and else the second half of volumes 1693 and 1696 and the first half of volume 1694.
