Beautiful edition (financed by Raimund Fugger and dedicated to him) of a collection inscriptions, mostly from Fugger's own collection, with privilege of Karl V and short contributions by Ph. Melanchthon, J. Agricola, A. Osiander, a.o. It includes inscriptions on tombs and other stones, but also on ceramics and other objects. The inscriptions, some taken from works by Peutinger, Pirckheimer, Choler, Giocondo and others, are arranged geographically. The book includes some obviously fictitious items lifted from the Hypnerotomachia Polifili (Venice 1499) and from Ciriaco d'Ancona. - Adams A-1291; VD 16 A-3086; Brunet I, 342.
