Ferencz III, Count de Nádasdy, was a prominent nobleman and patriotic Hungarian statesman who opposed the despotic policy of the Emperor Leopold. Unjustly condemned for conspiring against Leopold, he was beheaded in 1671. In this book, which is dedicated to the Hungarian nobility, he had promoted the idea of an independent Hungarian monarchy. The unsigned engravings, here in notably fine and dark impressions, are of great quality.

Further editions of the work appeared in 1667 and 1758, and a modern critical edition was published in Budapest in 1991.

The book is rare on the market, with just one poor copy recorded at public sale since 1986.
