Notes

A publication based on the famous Würzburg Lügensteine hoax.

Originally published with title: Lithographiae Wirceburgensis ducentis lapidum figuratorum, a potiori insectiformium, prodigiosis imaginibus exornatae. (Wirceburgi : P.W. Fuggart, 1726).

"The 2nd ed. of the Lithographiae Wirceburgensis consisted of original sheets with a new title page. The sheets undoubtedly came from copies of the original ed. recalled from booksellers and the press by Beringer but not destroyed. The reissue of the work as a literary curiosity is often attributed to one of Beringer's sons."--DSB, v. 2, p. 16.

Numbers 79-80 are each repeated once in the pagination sequence, without repetition of text (leaf X1).

The unnumbered plate, apparently intended as a frontispiece, is signed: Puschner sc.

Engraved device on t.p., with motto "Pretiosior illis" and monogram [GE?].

Head- and tail-pieces; initials.

Signatures: pi2 A-2A² 2B² (-2B2).

Leaf pi2 is blank.
