Kriegs Ordnung Neu Gemacht
Gedruckt Zu Leipzig: Durch Michael Blum, 1534. [128ff]. With an elaborate woodcut depicting the leader of a besieged town submitting in the camp of the besieging army, with artillery pieces in the background, repeated to A2. Contemporary black calf over wooden boards, elaborately roll-tooled to both boards, with original clasps both intact. Loss to head and foot of spine, corners. Some wear to boards. Marginal worming to final three leaves. Seventeenth-century ink inscription to FFEP, occasional earlier annotation to text. With a distinguished provenance: bookplates to FEP indicating presence at one time in the militaria collection of Mark Dineley and the library of Prince Adalbert of Prussia, (1811-73) - himself an artillery-man. In addition to detailing instructions on the conduct of armies, this work provides much detail on laying sieges and the use of artillery. An undated folio edition on 86 leaves likely precedes this first dated edition: both are immensely rare, with no copies recorded in the rooms in the past 40 years. . Second Edition?. 8vo.
