The first page reads "Depuis le commencement du XV Sicle. Seconde Partie. Livre Second." The entire volume is devoted to Japan.

The "Avis au Relieur" at the rear shows two plates. Plate "XV Armes de l'Empire & des Princes Japonois" (page 73) and Plate "XVI Marques d'honneur, des Princes des Grands du Japon" (page 177). It does not list the other five plates found at the rear of this volume and these appear to be supplements to previous volumes. Those five plates relate to volumes on Africa.
