UNCOMMON FIRST ITALIAN TRANSLATION OF THE FAMOUS TREATISE BY ALBRECHT DÜRER ["VIER BÜCHER VON MENSCHLICHER PROPORTION"], A FUNDAMENTAL WORK IN ANATOMY PICTORIAL HISTORY. First edition in Italian, translated from Latin by Gallucci with the addition of a fifth book with considerations about art and poetry. The woodcuts are copied from the first edition, posthumously published at Nuremberg in 1528.
