In der Vorrede zum zweiten Teil berichtet der Verleger Egenolff, dass Ryff "diesen Theyl ... nach seinem Absterben hinderlassen / und nachdem des von vilen / dieser kunst erfarnen / wirdig geacht worden / zu publicieren und in Truck zuuordnen ... haben wir dich dises nützlichen Buchs / dieweil es uns zuhanden kommen / nicht wöllen berauben ... (Vorwort zum zweiten Teil). Gurlt, in "Geschichte der Chirurgie S. 42 ff" geht davon aus, dass Ryffs "grosze Chirurgei" eine eigentliche Bearbeitung von Gerssdorfs "Feldtbuch der Wundartzney" ist, die Ryff mit Übersetzungen aus anderen Werken seiner Zeit, wie von Tagault anreicherte. Gurlt nennt das Werk planlos und unvollständig, weist aber darauf hin, dass Ryff durch seinen Tode das Buch nicht vollenden konnte. "Nichts destoweniger ist die grosse Chirurgie als zu den ältesten deutschen Schriften der Chirurgie gehörig, von Wert" (Gurlt). Der eindrückliche Titelholzschnitt in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt mit der Darstellung einer Unterschenkel-Amputation in Gegenwart eines Geistlichen. Die anatomischen Holzschnitte stammen aus der "Anatomia mundini" von Johannes Dryander. Die Holzschnitte mit den Instrumenten sind verkleinerte Nachschnitte aus dem Buch von Gerssdorf. - Mit handschriftlichen Besitzvermerken auf dem Innendeckel und auf dem letzten weissen Blatt des ersten Teils u.a. eines "Hans Bärger Barbieres Sohn des Meister Jakob Bärger zu Unterhallau 1729".

      Basel, (Heinrich Petri, 1559). Folio. Contemporary full richly blindstamped pigskin binding over wooden boards. Elaborately illustrated inner and outer roll-borders to boards, with saints and apostles. Remains of brass clasps to boards. Four raised bands to spine. Lower compartment of spine with a crack in leather, but overall a very good, sturdy, and tight copy in a lovely contemporary German typical Renaissance binding. Title-page with a large woodcut medaillon portrait of the author. Old owner's inscriptions to title-page (dated 1645). A (mostly very light) dampstain to upper corners and the last ab. 100 leaves also with a small dampstain in outer margin, minor and mainly marginal brownspots. Numerous small woodcuts and line drawings in the text, illustrating astronomy, mechanics, physics, technology, botany, mineralogy, alchemy, etc. (52), 934, (2) pp. (last leaf recto with printer and year - verso with woodcut printer's device).. Scarce first edition thus, being the seminal first German edition of two of Cardanus' most influential works, under the joint title "Disclosure of Nature and Natural Things...", constituting the first printing of the first translation into German of any part of Cardanus' foundational main work "De Subtilitate" (originally published in Latin in 1550), "a rambling miscellany of natural philosophy which eventually grew to twenty-one books and appeared in many reprints and revisions before and after Cardano's death in 1575" (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 308) as well as the first printing of the first German translation of the great sequel to the "De Subtilitate", namely "De rerum varietate", (originally published in Latin in 1557), containing the translation of all 17 books in their entirety. These two works, here presented as en entity for the first time, constitute in their unity the greatest encyclopaedia of Renaissance Science and they greatly influenced scientific thought of the following century. "The two works, written in an elliptical and often obscure Latin, contain a little of everything: from cosmology to the construction of machines; from the usefulness of natural sciences to the evil influence of demons; from the laws of machanics to cryptology. It is a mine of facts, both real and imaginary; of notes of the states of the sciences; of superstition, technology, alchemy, and various branches of the occult. The similarities between the scientific opininons expressed by Cardano in these two works and those of Leonardo da Vinci, at that time unpublished, has led some historians, particularly Pierre Duheim to suppose that Cardano has used Leonardo's manuscript notes; others insist that the similarity is intirely coincidental. Be that as it may, Cardano must always be credited with having introduced new ideas that inspired new investigations." (DSB III:66). It is through his great enclyclopaedic endeavors that many of da Vinci's unpublished ideas are passed on to the likes of Stevin, Galilei and Descartes, but Cardanus not only reported and collected, he himself made important contributions in the fields of mathematics and algebra, mechanics (where he developed and went beyond Leonardo da Vinci's ideas on the balance and virtual velocities), in chemistry, astronomy, mineralogy, hydrodynamics, etc. In fact, it seems that there is hardly a scientific field to which Cardanus' encyclopedic work did not make the most important contributions. As an example, Stillwell lists the "De subtilitate" under no less than three different chapters (Medicine, Natural Science, Physics): "[w]ritten in a popular style and treating a wide range of subjects. Includes a description of a touch-system not unlike Braille, as an aid to the blind, and a suggestion regarding a sign-language for the deaf. According to Garrison, Cardano's biological concepts tended toward evolution." (III: 329). "A philosophical discussion of method, tending toward evolution in its biologic concepts. Wightman ... speaks of Cardano's heat as having a "modern" character. The author was a scientist of advanced ideas and varied interests, his writing relating to medicine, physics, natural science, and in particular to mathematics." (IV:609). "Cardano refers to the electro-magnetic powers of the lodestone, magnetic declination, and electrification by friction. He describes pumps, siphons, the water-screw of Archimedes, and machinery for raising sunken vessels. His concepts regarding heat and various other matters veered towards the modern." (V:745).
