Rare. While N.U.C. puts this under Henricus Hadrianus van der Marck, B.M.C. has it under Joannes à Marck, a professor of theology and Blogie attributes the catalogue to Thomas Nicolaas van der Marck. See Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 252 for a discussion.
This was an important and large library and the sale catalogue contains 8439 lots, including many 15th and 16th century books as well as early MSS.
The attractive frontispiece depicts a group of putti in the library. Fine crisp copy.
