Philipp Daniel Lippert published the first edition of his Dactyliotheca Universalis signorum exemplis nitidis redditae in Leipzig in 1755-1762. It comprised three 'volumes' in book form, each containing twenty drawers of one thousand gem casts per volume, chosen from the prominent collections of the day in Europe. It was accompanied by a summary catalogue. This is the edition presented here. A second edition (1767-1776) is somewhat differently composed and had a far longer text. It will be put on line by the Beazley Archive in the near future.
