About this Item

33 cm x 20 cm, bound in 6's, pp. [x], 538, [56]. Contains approximately 300 woodcuts (2 are folding), along with some head and tail pieces, and illuminated initials. Contemporary full calf, 6 raised bands, gilt-stamped leather spine label. Early sympathetic rebacking, covers worn, leather to upper cover crackled, some abrasions to lower cover, one tiny wormhole at extreme whitespace margin of fore-edge affecting about 15 leaves only, offsetting to the text, 2 leaves with one vertical closed tear in the fore-edge margin, signature of previous owner, M.O. Farrar, with circular ink stamp: Metallurgy, Mining, Chemistry, M.O. Farrar on the front free endpaper and twice on the title-page. Overall, a very good copy of a book that is one of the most highly respected scientific classics of all time. Originally published in 1556, it was the first book on mining written using a "scientific approach" and the first to offer detailed technical drawings. It wasn't until 1912 that the book was translated from the Latin to English by the mining engineer and soon to be President of the United States, Herbert Hoover. Size: Folio.
