. 4to. Pp. (viii), 97, index (11); (viii), 96. With one engraved extra title by A. Blothelingh, 3 engraved title-vignettes, 11 folding engraved plates (one with repaired tear), 9 full-page illustrations and further more vignettes and other illustrations in the text. With some old annotations. Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked with original spine preserved. Third and best edition of Pignoria's "Mensa Isiaca", the first notable work of Egyptology (first published as "Vetustissimae tabulae aeneae sacris Aegyptiorum" in 1605). "Mensa Isiaca" or the table of Isis was a elaborated bronze table top discovered in the ruins of the Temple of Isis in Rome in 1525 or 1527 and became one of the most famous Egyptian artefacts known at the time. It is beleived that this bronze table was executed in Rome in the first century A.D. It passed into the possession of Cardinal Bembo, who allowed Pignoria to examine it. Many scholars had different ideas about the function of the "Mensa Isiaca" but Pignoria's explanation was the simplest and most convincing. He believed that it was a representation of sacrificial ceremonies according to Egyptian rites. The illustrations were done by Aeneas Vico. The second work is Pignoria's essay on the Great Mother of Gods, first published in 1623. Blackmer 1312. Gay 1567. Ibrahim-Hilmy ii, 119.
