Title continues: "Praeter Addenda comprehendens Historiam Animalium, Plantarum, Lapidum, Metallorum, Elementorum, Rerum Africarum, praecipuè Hominis Negotiorúmque ejus, in omni AEtate, Sexu, Conditione, AEvo, Recentiori, medio, veteri, ex omnium Gentium, imprimis Hebrae, Graece, Romanae, Monumentis sacris, civilibus, erutam." Latin text. Apparently a continuation of the author's earlier work, Lexico Universalis (1677). The earlier work and its continuation were combined into the edition of 1698. An impressive conversation piece.
