[2 pl.] - [T.p., dedic.] - [Text and pl.] - Bericht an den Buchbinder / wie die Kupffer einzulegen.

Responsibility Note

The 'M.J.F.W.' of the title page has been identified with Magister Johann Friedrich Wieland.

Most plates are unsigned, but three are signed - pl. [1] (p.73) as drawn by Johann Weidner and made by J. Franck; pl. [6] (p.188) as made by Philipp Neüss; pl. [8] (p.194) as by J. Weidner and engraved by G. Ehinger.

The work is dedicated by Jacob Koppmayer to Maximilian Emanuel, Elector of Bavaria.


A survey of pageants was B. Holme, Princely feasts and festivals: five centuries of pageantry (1988).

Summary Note

Text and plates describe ceremonies and celebrations for the coronation of Emperor Leopold I's third wife, Eleonore Magdalena Theresia, as Empress, and of their son Joseph as king of Rome (afterwards Emperor Joseph I). Plate [4] (p.170) has a caption referring to a coronation of 1630.

The second edition was published in the same year, 1690 (Das hochbeehrte Augspurg wie solches nicht allein ...).


A microfiche version was published in 1980 (Zug: IDC). A microfilm version was published in 1973 (New Haven, Conn.: Research Pub.).


A preliminary leaf of the volume is inscribed in pencil, 'HW 13 Feb. 1827', and in red ink, '1973'.

Copy Note

Plate [5] (p. 182) has become disbound. This copy has three addditional plates bound in - two of them before the title-page, showing events relating to the wedding of Emperor Leopold I and his first wife, Margareta Theresa, in 1666 (the first of these consists of two prints pasted together), the third bound in at p.3, a folding plate showing portraits of the imperial family. None of these additional plates is signed.

Binding Note

17th-century mottled calf; gilt-decorated spine lettered 'Wahl U. Crönungs Diarium Leopoldi I. Wahl U. Cronungs Diarium Josephi I.', green morocco spine-label lettered 'R.A.' [Bound with two others.]
