Two classics translated into Dutch bound together in a fine binding which can be identified as made by the Rotterdam Stag bindery (active between 1693 and 1743 or 1758), "(…) one of the most distinguished Dutch workshops of the first half of [the 18th c.]." Probable date of this binding is c. 1733. Cf. Storm v. Leeuwen, Dutch dec. bookb. vol. II, p. 432 and 439 (depicting a similar binding); Geerebaert, XCVII-5; Schweiger II, 38.
