Although the bibliographies and catalogues consulted do not give strict indications as to the engravings, we are not aware of any copies with greater number of engravings. The three volumes also have three engraved frontispieces and numerous woodcut and intaglio engravings, integrated into the text, representing viceroys and other historical characters. The third volume includes, in the end, a rare errata sheet. The frontispiece of the first volume trimmed to the head and with imperfect outer margin, with prejudice of the engraved image. The three trimmed volumes with slight acidity but in general, clean and solid. 18th century entire calf binding, slightly fatigued, with large boards. Innocent, V, p. 416. Auvermann, 493. Arouca, S 530, 531 and 532.
