Uncommon. From the Preface- "Niccolaas Rockox was a great humanist, Burgomaster of Antwerp nine times in the first half of the 17th century, and friend and patron of P.P. Rubens. Together with his contemporaries Rubens, Plantin, Moretus, Jordaens and Snijders, Rockox was one of the key figures who helped create the spirit of his times, at the height of the baroque period in Antwerp."
