Hieronymi Cardani Mediolanensis Medici, de Subtilitate Libri XXI Iam Postremo, ab authore plusquam mille locis illustrati, nonnullis etiam cum additionibus. Addita insuper Apologia adversus calumniatorem, qua uis horum liborum aperitur
Sebastianum Henricpetri, Basilae 1611 - According to professor Schapiro's note, Book IV contains information on painting and colors; Book XVII is on the arts. "Apologia" at end of volume is an answer to Jules-Cesar Scaliger's Exoterimus de subtilitate ad Hieronymum Cardanum, Lutetiae, apud Mich. Vascosan, 1557. Illustrated with a medallion portrait and numerous woodcut diagrams in the text; printer's device on title and verso of final leaf; initials throughout. [80], 1148, [4] pages. Very thick 8vo, old vellum (well-rubbed but sound; spine darkened; 3 blank preliminary pages are replete with contemporary ink notations in Latin, otherwise internally clean). Basilae: Per Sebastianum Henricpetri, 1611. A very nice copy of this uncommon scientific work, with small ownership signature of art historian Meyer Schapiro. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
