Summary Note

This work is in four parts, each with its own title-page and imprint, but some parts sharing continuous pagination and signatures: [1] 'Mausolei Mauritani Pars Altera ... (imprint as above)' (pp. 1-134, [2]; signatures AA-RR4); [2] 'Viginti Academiarum ... Epicedia ... (same imprint)' (pp. 1-90; signatures AAa-LLl4, MMm[1]); [3] 'Epicedia Exterarum Nationum ... (same imprint)' (pp.91-262, [2]; signatures MMm2-ZZz4, AAaa-KKkk4); [4] 'Sequuntur Orationes Et Carmina ... (same imprint)'; 'Index' (pp.1-90, [8]; signatures a-l4, m[5]). The index includes a 'Pars Prima', but the text begins only with 'Pars Altera'. The texts are tributes to Landgraf Moritz of Hesse-Kassel (who abdicated in 1627 and died in 1632), by J. Crocius, J. Combach, J.P. Dauber and others.


An electronic edition was published in 2005 (Wolfenbüttel: Herzog August Bibliothek).


The front pastedown of the volume is inscribed in pencil, 'S.A.H.', i.e. S.A. Hart, librarian of the Royal Academy 1864-81.
