These are the first two "centuries", the second incomplete of 25 plates and the accompanying text sheets. The work, rarely encountered without gaps, appeared in issues over twenty-four years, from 1789 to 1812, from three successive Viennese publishers, first under the direction of Joseph Jakob von Plenck, until his death in 1807, then under that of Joseph Lorenz
Kerndl. It should comprise a total of 7 complete centuries and one last unfinished one, i.e. an engraved title and 758 plates.
