All pages of both volumes exceptionally clean and crisp throughout, with no pages loose. The margins wide and side notes well printed in italics. *Vol.I covers rulers who reigned before unification of areas later making up Belgium (from 615 to 1430). Vol.II deals with Philip the Good under whom Belgium was unified, and ends with Philip II of Spain who died in 1598. Vol.III ends with the reign of Albert Archduke of Austria and Isabella the Spanish Infanta from 1599-1609. Each chapter has a full length portrait of the ruler, sometimes with his wife and their coats of arms. The figures are either in armour or sumptuously dressed, often accompanied by dogs or hawks, set in scenery with battle scenes in the background, or in an archway showing harbour or country scenes behind. All plates are large and well drawn with details of dress and equipement as well as regal paraphenalia [NB large heavy volumes - extra shipping cost].
