Nova Architectura Militaris, das ist neu-erfundene Fortificationes, oder Vestungs-Bau

Nuremburg, Johann Ziegers, 1683.

Small folio, two volumes bound as one, [iv], 28 pages plus an engraved pictorial title page and 7 large folding plates, and [iv], 28 plates plus an engraved pictorial title page and 8 large folding plates (with all the folding plates mounted near the right-hand edge of blank leaves so that they can be opened out and referred to at the same time as the relevant text).

Recent antique-style quarter leather (a little marked) and early marbled papered boards (rubbed and worn at the extremities); occasional small light tidemarks to some bottom margins; trifling signs of use and age, with some early pencilling on the endpapers (including a sketch of a castle on the front flyleaf); a very good copy.

An early and well-illustrated work on military architecture and fortifications, presumably very rare if the standard online resources are any indication.
