The Three volumes of the edition were printed by Peter de Hondt in the Hague and richly illustrated with the engravings by Dutch painters and engravers Gerard Hoet and Jacob Houbraken, and by a well-known French master of engraving Bernard Picart. Each image has comments in five European languages and in Hebrew.
