12mo, , 249,  p., + 140,  p., + 65,  p., engraved half-title with standing woman holding a treasure chest and ring above a woman with dog stooping into two bowls of rings in a classical background, engraved title device of a flying bird of prey trailing a motto ribbon above an urban landscape. 19th century bespoke binding (extremities rubbed), possibly English in the cathedral style and with small binders initials E.V. or C.V.. Ornately gilt with domed spine, banded at both ends with flower and inter-linked diamond design, rectangular spine panel with scrollwork outer border and central titling with three inter-linked rings above and below and two ovals with central fleurons and bisected with arcs at the compass points, boards alike with repeated scrollwork outer border and central repeated framework design of gothic arches and fleurons, inner dentelles, edges stained red and sprinkled blue. This finely bound and comprehensive collection of Latin works on the history, origin and significance of the ring brings together three works for the first time, presumably with the intention of producing a work for bibliophiles.
