        Vn abridgement de touts les cases, reportes per Mounsieur Iasques Dyer. Ore nouelment imprimee

      London: Londini In Ædibus Thomæ Wight. 1602., 1602. Book. Very Good. Leather. 3rd Edition. Description: Sm. 8vo (6 × 4 in): 99, [2] l. (last leaf blank). Early calf, rebacked, embossed medallions to top and bottom boards. · Register: 8º: A-M^8 N^4. · Condition: Very clean and well-margined. · Comments: Dyer's Reports, the second to be published under their author's name, first issued in January 1586. This abridgment followed a few years later and was reprinted three times, the copy here being from the third edition. The chronological order of the cases is preserved and the page of the original given in the margin. The first two editions are very rare and were probably printed in violation of Richard Tottell's monopoly patent. John Baker suggests that this abridgment would have been of use to "the impecunious or less industrious student" as a substitute for the full version. · References: ODNB, J. H.

        LA VERDADERA HISTORIA DEL REY DON RODRIGO, en la qual se trata la causa principal de la pérdida de España, y la conquista que della hizo Miramamolin Almançor rey que fue del África, y de las Arabias, y vida del Rey Iacob Almançor

      Angelo Tvanno, Zaragoza 1602 - Segunda edición completa de "La verdadera historia del rey Don Rodrigo (.) compuesta por el sabio Alcayde Albucacim Tarif Abentarique, de nacion Arabe, y natural de la Arabia Petrea", con la fecha de 1603 en la portada de la Primera Parte, y MDCIII en la portada de la Segunda parte. Sin embargo, el ejemplar presenta el siguiente colofón, tal y como viene referido por Palau en su ref. 144073: "Acabóse de imprimir esta Primera y Segunda parte de la Historia de la perdida de España. en la muy noble y leal Ciudad de Çaragoça, a los nueve dias del mes de Noviembre del año de nuestro señor Iesu Christo de 1602. EN ÇARAGOÇA. Por Angelo Tavanno, Año 1602." La primera edición es de 1592 (1º parte) y 1599 (2ª parte), pero no existen referencias en el mercado. Miguel de Luna, morisco de Granada e intérprete oficial de lengua árabe, fingió haber descubierto en la Biblioteca del Escorial un manuscrito que calificó de Historia verdadera del rey Don Rodrigo, y que cayó en el desprestigio por ser en realidad una historia fabulada. Primera Parte (Libro Primero y Libro Segundo): Portada + 7 hojas + 118 fol. Segunda Parte: Portada + 1 hoja + 107 fol. + 7 hojas (Tabla de los capítulos que contienen esta Primera y Segunda parte, de la historia de la perdida de España y Colofón). En las dos portadas figura el escudo del impresor; enfrentado al fol.I de la Primera parte, xilografía de un escudo, probablemente de Don Alonso Gregorio, obispo de Zaragoza; capitulares xilografiadas; enfrentado al Colofón, bella xilografía de un caballero armado; en el reverso del Colofón, xilografía del escudo de las Barras de Aragón. Encuadernación heráldica en Plena Piel con algunos roces en bordes y esquinas, estampada en ambas tapas con el escudo de la familia Goldsmid de Kent y el lema "Concordia et Sedulitate"; cortes dorados. El papel de tina se encuentra en perfecto estado; la hoja de respeto manuscrita por ambas caras en inglés, probablemente por su anterior propietario, haciendo referencia al fraude de Miguel de Luna.

        CHRONOGRAPHIA OV REPORTORIO DOS TEMPOS:

      - O mais Copioso que te agora sayo a Lvz. Quarta impressam. Lisboa, Iorge Rodriguez, 1602. In 8.º de 19x14 cm. Com [viii], 373 fólios. Encadernação da época em pergaminho flexivel. Ilustrado com numerosas xilogravuras no texto, a primeira encontra-se na folha de rosto, é um globo que representa a Europa, a África, a Asia e parte do continente Américano, a mesma aparece repetida no fólio H5. Exemplar com anotações coevas marginais, falta de 4 (de 8) fólios iniciais não numerados, contendo parte doíndice. Apresenta também leves picos de oxidação própria do papel. Trata-se provavelmente da quinta e última edição desta obra que trata principalmente de meteorologia, astrologia e geografia. Todas as edições são de grande raridade. Originalmente era uma tradução livre da obra de Jerónimo Chaves, Cronografia ou Reportório dos Tempos, escrita em castelhano. As edições portuguesas, mais tardias (Lisboa 1585, Coimbra 1590 e 1593, e Lisboa 1594) foram significativamente alteradas, dando especial atenção à América (Brasil, bem como às possessões espanholas), África, Ásia e nas regiões polares. As xilogravuras incluem um globo que representa o Brasil e o Continente Sul Americano, um corte transversal da Terra, cada um dos 12 signos do zodíaco, o sol, a lua e os cinco planetas conhecidos. Um capítulo sobre medicina e astrologia contém três cortes anatómicos (um deles de página inteira). Há também tabelas e diagramas. Este trabalho é de considerável interesse científico, uma vez que é um dos mais antigos almanaques a utilizar e descrever o novo calendário gregoriano, adotado apenas uma década antes da primeira edição desta obra (1593). Avellar dá uma explicação completa do sistema de epacts (fases da lua) que é essencial para a compreensão do novo calendário. O novo calendário não foi completamente explicado até que Clavius publicou seu monumental tratado em 1603. Andre Avellar, foi professor de Matemática na Universidade de Coimbra, sendo o mais notável sucessor português de Pedro Nunes, e um dos cristãos-novos da universidade que foi perseguido pela Inquisição 1616-1626. [EN] AVELLAR, Andre do. Chronographia ou repertorio dos tempos . Lisbon: Jorge Rodrigues por Estevão Lopez, 1602. 8°, contemporary vellum. Woodcut hemisphere on title, repeated on f. H5; numerous woodcut illustrations in text. Copy with minor browning, contemporary notes on a few leaves. Missing 4 unn. inital leaves with part of the indice. Fifth (?) and final edition of this work dealing mainly with astrology, meteorology and geography; all the editions are of great rarity. Originally a free translation of Jeronimo Chaves’ Chronographia o repertorio de los tiempos, the later Portuguese editions (Lisbon 1585, Coimbra 1590 and 1593, and Lisbon 1594) were significantly altered. Attention is given to America (Brazil as well as the Spanish possessions), Africa, Asia and the polar regions. Woodcuts include one of the Earth that shows Brazil and the Southern Continent, a cross-section of the Earth, each of the 12 signs of the zodiac, the sun, the moon and the five known planets. A chapter on medicine and astrology contains three anatomical cuts (one of them full-page). There are also tables and diagrams. This work is of considerable scientific interest, since it is one of the earliest almanacs to use and describe the new Gregorian calendar, adopted only a decade before this work’s first appearance (1593). Avellar gives a complete explanation of the system of epacts that is essential for understanding the new calendar. The calendar was not completely explained until Clavius published his monumental treatise in 1603. Andre do Avellar, professor of mathematics at the University of Coimbra, was the most noteworthy Portuguese successor to Pedro Nunes. He was one of the New Christians at the University who was persecuted by the Inquisition from 1616 to 1626. j Alden & Landis 602/10: citing the BL copy only, with 372 ll. Inocêncio I, 58-9.

        Il Memoriale della lingua estratto dalle scritture de' migliori e più nobili autori antichi ; ridotto in ordine d'alfabeto

      Venice: Giovanni Battista Ciotti, 1602. First edition. Leather. Very Good/The first methodical Italian dictionary based on literary examples, il Memoriale della lingua appeared ten years before the Accademia della Crusca issued its famous dictionary. Gamba points out that Pergamino, who was a friend of Tasso, utilized examples that the Crusca missed, such as Tasso's dialogues, Guido Cavalcanti, Ludovico Dolce and Gian Giorgio Trissino. The first edition is quite scarce, absent from recent auction records, with copies scattered in a few important libraries. Gamba himself saw only the second edition of 1617. A third edition appeared in 1656.. Folio (31 cm); [12], 524, 395 [i.e. 375], lacks two unnumbered leaves errata at end. Title page in red and black. Printer's device on title page and colophon. Text printed in two columns. Woodcut head pieces; initials. Rebacked in period style, retaining eighteenth-century boards in flecked calf gilt with double fillets. Title page and colophon a little worn, but contents generally clean and bright. Few marginal worm trails. Discrete 19th-century library blindstamp on title page, colophon, and few other leaves. Reference: Bruni & Evans, 4042; Michel, VI, 97; Fontanini I,80 ("il primo Vocabolario pieno e metodico"); Gamba 2757 (1617 ed.); Vinciana 3839 (1656 ed., "uno dei migliori vocabolari italiani pubblicati prima della Crusca.")

        Americae Nona & Postrema Pars

      Frankfurt: Matthias Becker, 1602. First Latin edition of the ninth part of the De Bry’s Grand Voyages, containing an extremely important account of a Pacific voyage by Olivier van Noort -- as well as much ethnographic material relating to the indigenous Indian culture of Mexico and Peru. As the importance of the America material in all of the De Bry volumes is extremely well-known -- “the cornerstone of every library of Americana” (Penrose) --, let us focus on the Pacific material. Like the earlier parts of the De Bry series, this volume provided the majority of European readers with the first detailed illustrations of many of the locales described, particularly of the Philippines and other Pacific locales. In fact, according to Lach, the van Noort account contains “the earliest first-hand Dutch descriptions of the Ladrones (Marianas), the Philippines, and Borneo.” -- Asia III.1.442. On the political front, it was the first publication to inform Europe that the Spanish monopoly of the Pacific was being aggressively challenged by the Dutch, including an illustration showing the battle of Manila. Van Noort journeyed to the Moluccas via the Straits of Magellan, entering them in September of 1599 but, owing to disastrous weather conditions in that precipitous region, it did not reach the Pacific until the end of the following February. Continuing along the coast of Chile, he stopped at Peru, New Spain, and eventually reached the Mariana Islands, Manila, Borneo and Java. “Van Noort describes the Ladrones very much as did the earlier Spanish writers: the people are superb swimmers, incorrigible thieves, live without law, hold women in common, and subsist on bananas, coconuts, sweet potatoes and sugar cane, which they gladly trade for pieces of old iron. The Dutch writer reports on the visible damage suffered by many of the islanders from the Spanish pox (syphilis)... the Dutch were impressed and somewhat bewildered by the vast number of Philippine islands. To thread their way from the San Bernadino Straits to Manila they seized both native canoes and a Chinese junk to obtain pilots. They notice the usually naked and tattooed natives, the houses on stilts, and the many boats and ships which bring what is called tribute from the outlying islands to the Spanish at Manila. From a captured Chinese pilot they learned much about Manila’s size and fortification and about its large Chinese settlement. Luzon is thought to be larger than Scotland and England combined.” -- Lach, III.1.442. Chirino (Cartography of the Philippines) includes 4 maps in the present volume, all notable for their early date: #9 Ladrones insula descriptio; #10 Quid in Ladrones insula Hollandis acciderit; #11 De sinu Baye la Baye, which he terms the “first scene of Albay in southern Luzon province, where Admiral van Noort paused on route to Manila. Dutch ship is anchored in the bay, with a tattooed native holding a bow and arrow, while another wears shorts”; #13 Hollandorum cum Hispanis ante Manillam pugna navalis. The van Noort was first published in Dutch, in editions of 1601 and a corrected edition of 1602. As the first Latin edition, this account in the de Bry series was the first to gain a general European readership. * Church 168; Griffin, Bibliography of the Philippines, p. 24; Medina XXX; Chirino, Cartography of the Philippines p. 20 & pp. 79ff.. Folio, 362 pp., with 1 map outside collation; (1) f., xxv numbered plates; 100 pp (misbound after plates); (1) f., XIV plates. Bound in later vellum. Blank lower margin of title and following 2 leaves re-margined; typical light browning to text leaves almost always seen in this series, but generally not affecting maps and plates, which are in very good impressions.

Edition limited to 290 copies, each with an original leaf from the King James "She" Bible, 1611. Hamel 113. *The original leaf in this copy, loosely inserted within a bound-in folded sheet, is from the Gospel of St. Mark, chapters 4 and 5. Printed double column, black letter, with two decorative initials, the leaf is a trifle soiled and foxed, with a light damp stain extending from the fore-edge on both sides, slightly affecting the text. The so-called "She" Bible is generally accepted as the second issue of the first edition of the King James Bible, with the more commonly accepted rendering of 'and she went into the city' in Ruth III, 15. (The earlier issue rendered this as 'he went into the city' and is therefore known as the "He" Bible). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Regno di Napoli

      L?importanza di questa carta del Magini sta nel grande lavoro di assemblaggio compiuto per realizzarla, discordandosi completamente dalla precedenti realizzazioni a stampa basate sul lavoro di Pirro Logorio e del Gastaldi. Questa risulta infatti un paziente assemblaggio delle numerose carte regionali fino ad allora prodotte; la Puglia del Gastaldi nel 1567, l?Abruzzo del Bonifacio nel 1587 e la Calabria del Parisio nel 1589 per quelle stampate, le pitture di Egnatio Danti nella Galleria Vaticana e soprattutto l?atlante realizzato da Mario Cartaro e Niccolò Antonio Stigliola, del quale rimangono oggi alcuni esemplari in copia. Incisa da Benjamin Wright, l?opera è tratta dalla prima edizione de l?Italia, pubblicato postumo dal figlio Fabio nel 1620. Magnifica impressione, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Almagià pag.73/76, Principe pag. 51. Dimensioni: 440x380. The importance of this map realized by Magini consists in the great assemblage work needed for its realization, which is completely different from any previous printed work based on Pirro Logorio?s and Gastaldi?s creations. This is, in fact, the result of the assemblage of many regional maps previously realized; Gastaldi?s Puglia, 1567, Bonifacio? Abruzzo, 1587 and Parisio?s Calabria, 1589 for the printed part, the paintings of Egnatio Danti in the Vatican Gallery and the Atlas Mario Cartaro and Niccolò Antonio Stigliola realized, which is nowadays know through its copies. Engraved by Benjamin Wright, this example is taken from the first edition of l?Italia, posthumously published by the son, Fabio, in 1620. Magnificent work, in excellent condition.

        Melencolia I

      Bulino, 1602, firmato e datato in lastra in basso. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti l?indirizzo di Danker Dankerts. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con sottili margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Copia molto fedele dell?omonima e celebre incisione di Albrecht Dürer, questo lavoro viene realizzato dal Wierix a distanza di quasi 90 anni dall?originale. La presenza del monogramma del Maestro di Norimberga, fa supporre ad un omaggio per lui e dimostra la grande influenza dell?opera a distanza di un secolo circa dalla sua esecuzione. La composizione è assolutamente fedele all?originale. Di notte o in una relativa oscurità, illuminata da un arcobaleno e una cometa, una figura femminile alata e pensosa è seduta su una terrazza di pietra. Sullo sfondo, una massa d?acqua sopra la quale volteggia un pipistrello che sorregge un cartiglio esplicativo che contiene il titolo. Attorniato da un?impressionante e apparentemente disordinata serie d?oggetti, la figura alata trova quali compagni nella sua notturna solitudine, un cane addormentato e un cherubino alato. Hieronimus Wierix, esponente della nota famiglia di incisori ed artisti di Anversa, inizia la sua attività presso Christoph Plantin, maggiore editore dell?epoca nelle Fiandre, dove diviene un esperto incisore. La sua prima opera indipendente è datata 1577 ed è successiva al periodo che trascorse in prigione per le sue idee ribelli verso la Spagna cattolica.La migliore derivazione della Melelcolia I di Dürer. Engraving, 1602, signed and dated in plate at the bottom. Example in the first state of two, before the address of Danker Dankerts. A beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with narrow margins, in good condition.A very faithful copy of the homonymous famous engraving by Albrecht Dürer, this work is carried out by Wierix after almost 90 years from the original. The presence of the monogram of the Master of Nuremberg, suggests a tribute to him and shows the great influence of the work at a distance of about a century from its execution. The composition is absolutely faithful to the original. At night or in relative darkness, lit by a rainbow and a comet, a winged female figure and thoughtful is sitting on a stone terrace. In the background, a body of water over which hovers a bat holding a scroll that contains the explanatory title. Surrounded by an impressive and seemingly chaotic series of objects, the winged figure is as companions in his lonely night, a sleeping dog and a winged cherub. Hieronimus Wierix, a member of the famous family of engravers and artists in Antwerp, he began his career working with Christoph Plantin,'s largest publisher of the time in Flanders, where he became an expert engraver. His first independent work is dated 1577, and after the period he spent in prison for his ideas to the rebels Catholic Spain.The best derivation of the Melelcolia by Dürer.

The country is shown as far north as Steigen. Our example has Latin text on the back and above the map, this is the edition published by Claesz in Amsterdam. According to Ginsberg there are only five printings of the map: A French text edition 1602, a Latin (our example), in this case the letterpress title page in the atlas is dated 1602 and the title-page 1603, further a 1609 French issue, one without any text above the map or on the back, (only one copy of this variant is known, inserted in a German 1612 atlas edition), and the last 1649 Latin edition. The first four issues are classified as "State 1" and the 1649 "State 2". Accompanied with the map of Scandinavia titled "Nortcaep" from the 1600 issue.. Both maps are in excellent condition. W. B. Ginsberg "Maps and Mapping of Norway 1602 - 1855" Entry 1, Arne I. Hoem "Norge på gamle kart" no. 20 pages 42-45, does not mention this Latin issue, W.B.

Schottus, portrait of Ortelius and 149 engraved maps by Frans Hogenberg and others on 120 copperplates and printed on 117 mapsheets, each map richly embellished with figural cartouches, arms, sailing ships, sea monsters, and deities etc (map 21 misbound, rusthole on world map just touching the plate-mark), 120 ten-line woodcut historiated initials, 33 various smaller woodcut initials, all FINELY COLOURED IN A CONTEMPORARY HAND, PROBABLY BY MYNCKEN LIEFRINCKS (TRUUSJE GOEDINGS).

Modern half green morocco folding-case. Provenance: Otto Schaefer, his sale Sotheby's November 1995, lot 162. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE AND ATTRACTIVE COPY OF THE EXTREMELY RARE SPANISH EDITION OF ORTELIUS'S "THEATRUM ORBIS TERRARUM" The first edition in Spanish, and the first edition of the "Theatrum." published under the imprint of Jan Baptist Vrients, who assumed responsibility for the atlas three years after Ortelius's death. Vrients added several new maps to Ortelius's oeuvre and continued to publish the atlas until his own death in 1612, after which no further editions appeared. This edition of the "Theatrum." was published without the "Parergon" and the "Nomenclator". The world map used in this edition is printed from Ortelius's third and final "Typus orbis terrarium" plate, which greatly improved the delineation of the southwest coastline of South America and depicted the Solomon Islands for the first time. Also included is the landmark map "America Sive Novi Orbis Nova Descrptio" (America, or New World, Newly Described). Ortelius first published his "Theatrum.", arguably the first atlas in the modern sense of the word in 1570, A businessman native to Antwerp, Ortelius complied the best existing maps, re-engraved them on a standardized format, and included them with the text in one volume. Dedicated to Philip III, King of Spain, who in 1602 ordered an 'armada' to sail from Acapulco on the South coast of Mexico to report on the islands of the Pacific Oceans and the "great realm of California". Truusje Goedings, renowned expert in Dutch colouists of the 17th-century writes of this copy: "The de-luxe colouring of this copy of the Spanish edition has remained remarkably fresh and is of very high quality. It was done by one, contemporary hand in a definitely Flemish style, with its overall colouring in rather heavy, warm hues, though somewhat more refined than usual. The plates and maps are heightened with gold, also in the lettering. Moreover, all initials in the text are coloured brightly and with care and variation. This is rare, and accentuates the quality of the colouring. In general coloured copies of the 'Theatrum' had their texts left plain, and if colour was applied to initials or text-decorations, this was mostly done thin and hastily with just one or two colours. The green used for large land surfaces did not turn into a brownish yellow as often in atlases of this period, but remained fresh in many places. Only a brighter hue, apparently a mixture, has been discoloured. A special feature is the lead white used to whiten the white of the paper (to enhance contrast, or as ground for other colours). In some places this has oxidized and turned into grey, f.e. at the upper part of the dedication print on verso title, and in the cartouche on the Africa map. A de-luxe colouring like this was very costly at the time. Plantijn, former publisher of the 'Theatrum', used to ask especially for these copies expert colourist Myncken Liefrincks, head of the Liefrincks printing firm. As she was still the best address at the time, Vrients will have done the same. Plantijn's archives reveal some of her prices. For instance, for a de-luxe colouring of a Spanish Theatrum (ed. 1578, priced uncoloured ca. fl. 20) with adornments in gold and silver she got payed fl. 36,-, almost four times the price of a regular colouring - and almost twice the price of a plain copy. (see on this my article in Kunst in Kaart, exh. Amsterdam The richness of colouring and the carefull overall treatment of this copy suggest it was intended for a wealthy client or for presentation. This Spanish version was Vrients's first edition of the Theatrum after he had bought the plates from Ortelius' heirs, which he dedicated in print to the Spanish king. He certainly had prepared a few copies for presentation to the Spanish court. Where the dedicatee himself in general was presented with a de-luxe binding in leather, one or two of his high-placed favorites who were often also gifted had to do with a little bit less, be it in colour, or in binding (as here might have been the case). Anyhow, the Spanish title and monograms on spine indicate a provenance from an early Spanish owner. Comparison with 2 copies of the same edition held in the Escorial library (see Koeman 31:451, p.212) might bring more light to this". Rijksmuseum 1989, p.95-130, esp. p.113-117, with lit.; and C.Hofmann in Couleur de la Terre, Paris Bibl. Nationale 1999, p.69 ). Koeman Ort 34; Palay 205364; Shirley 158. Catalogued by Kate Hunter..

        Divers ouvrages de mathématique et de physique.Paris: L'Imprimerie Royale, 1693.

      First edition of this superb collection of thirty-one treatises by the leading scientists of seventeenth-century France, all but one of which are published here for the first time.<br/><br/> There are nine treatises by Gilles Personne de Roberval (1602-75), comprising the principal corpus of his published works. Of particular importance is his Traité des indivisibles, composed around the same time as Cavalieri's Geometria (1635) but independent of it and published here for the first time. "Roberval was one of the leading proponents of the geometry of infinitesimals, which he claimed to have taken directly from Archimedes, without having known of the work of Cavalieri. Moreover, in supposing that the constituent elements of a figure possess the same dimensions as the figure itself, Roberval came closer to the integral calculus than did Cavalieri... The numerous results that he obtained in this area are collected in the Divers Ouvrages, under the title of Traité des indivisibles... The most famous of his works in this domain concerns the cycloid" (DSB XI.487). The volume also contains Roberval's foundation work on kinematic geometry, and his treatise on the composition of movements. "On account of his method of 'composition of movements' Roberval may be called the founder of kinematic geometry. This construction has three applications - the fundamental and most famous being the construction of tangents..." (ibid.).<br/><br/> The collection also contains four treatises by the accomplished amateur mathematician Bernard Frenicle de Bessy (ca. 1605-75), a close correspondent of Fermat, who made significant contributions of his own to number theory and related fields. These treatises include the tract on his method of calculation by exclusion, which gives applications to problems concerning right-angled triangles whose sides are integers, e.g. he discussed right-angles triangles the sum or difference of whose legs is given. There are also two treatises on magic squares. "The most important of these works of Frenicle is the treatise "Des quarrez ou tables magiques". These squares, which are of Chinese origin and to which the Arabs were so partial, reached the Occident not later then the fifteenth century. Frenicle pointed out that the number of magic squares increased enormously with the order by writing down 880 magic squares of the fourth order, and gave a process for writing down magic squares of even order" (DSB V.159). <br/><br/> After the death of Frenicle and Roberval in 1675, their books and manuscripts were entrusted to the astronomer Jean Picard. Eight treatises by Huygens were also sent to Picard expressly for publication in this collection, including De la cause de la pesanteur, Construction d'un problème d'optique and his Démonstration de l'equilibre de la balance. The volume also contains five treatises by Picard himself, including an unusual 37-page work on dioptrics, one by Mariotte and two by Rømer. One of the Auzout contributions is a description of his micrometer - the only treatise in this collection which was published previously. <br/><br/> This is one of the earliest important publications of the Académie des Sciences, and one of the most magnificent. Founded on 22 December 1666, one of the principal functions of the Académie was to facilitate publication of the works of its members. Frenicle and Roberval were founding members (as was Huygens), and without the assistance of the Académie it is likely that many of their works would have remained unpublished (only one work by Frenicle and two by Roberval were published in their lifetimes).. Folio, pp. [viii, last leaf blank], 518, [2, colophon], with numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in text. Contemporary calf
