Description: 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.

Comments: 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.

Wow - This is amazing - the book arrived in the post this morning! It was quicker for your book to get from New York to New Zealand, than the two books I ordered from Australia at the same time! Many thanks for that - I know it was sent by cheapest post (at my request) but somewhere along the line I got lucky. Love the book by the way - and it arrived here in such perfect condition I could almost think no one has even touched it before... - Anne W.
