In Venetia: Appresso F. Sansovino, et compagni, 1560. First edition, small 4to, ff. [4], 187, [1]; woodcut device on title and on recto of final leaf; profusely illustrated with over 400 woodcuts of garden plants, vegetables, tubers, fruits, gourds, mushrooms, grains, ferns, etc., as well as a few of pests such as rodents and insects; 17th century vellum-backed paste-paper boards; the binding a bit rubbed and soiled, minor marginal worming, and there is occasional dampstaining in the lower margins, but generally this is a very good copy of the uncommon first edition. Giovanni Tatti, whose name appears in the title is, in fact, a pseudonym of Sansovino who here has produced a gardening handbook based on the writings of Pliny, Virgil, Columella, and others. The second of the five books contained herein is devoted entirely to grapes and wine. Le Simon, Bibliotheca Bacchica, 636; Unzelman, Wine & Gastronomy, p. 149; BM-STC Italian, p. 662.
