[c. 1700]. 1 vol. small oblong in-folio, waiting boards - Spine detached, plate 6 damaged and repaired (Samson's head missing), scattered freckles, soiling on frontispiece, first four and last five plates. Probably missing plate 39 - Unpaginated, frontispiece and 38 plates numbered 1 to 38. Plates 17 and 18 have been interchanged. A pupil of Charles Le Brun, Verdier (1651-1730) was one of his most faithful epigones, albeit without the genius.
