APIANUS (Petrus) et FRISIUS (Gemma).
Libro de la Cosmographia, el qual trata la descripcion del Mundo, y sus partes, por muy claro y lindo artificio, augmentado por el doctissimo varon Gemma Frisio, doctor en Medicina, y Mathematico excellentissimo: con otros dos libros del dicho Gemma, de la materia mesma. Agora nuevamente traduzidos en Romance Castellano.
En Enveres en casa de Gregorio Bontio, 1548. 4to. 2 leaves. 68 numbered leaves. 2 leaves and 1 folding engraved map. Full calf, gilt frames around the boards, adorned flat spine (18th century binding, perhaps a remboitage). First Spanish Edition of the celebrated Cosmography of German astronomer Peter Bienewitz, also known as Apianus (1495-1551), the personal astronomer of Emperor Charles V. It was published for the first time in Latin in 1524 before it was revised by Gemma Frisius in 1529. A quite heavily used copy (stains and dirt) but nicely bound and perfectly complete, in particular of its four wood-engraved mobile plates (volvelles) and the folding world map depicting South, Central and North America. Palau, 13808. Sabin, 1753.
