Descrizione prodotto

Early 20th-century calf-backed boards with slipcase. 422 leaves (first quire containing the register possibly supplied) 44 lines. Woodcut illustrations and diagrams, initials, large printer’s device printed in red.
FIRST EDITION of a beautifully printed incunabulum. This work relies heavily on the writings of the Arab astrologers as well as those of Ptolemy and writers of the classical period. Bonatti was the author of several astronomical works and one of the most famous and influential astrologers of the 13th century. In 1260 he held the tilte “Astrologus Communis Florentiae de
Forolivio” (Astrologer of the Florentine community Forlì). Title and last leaf tipped onto endpaper, device soiled and with a few marginal tears (with holes and wormhole touching one letter), few
small wormholes in first few leaves, occasional light marginal waterstaining, wormtrack in upper
margin of last 4 leaves. Very rare with the register, often lacking.

Provenance: F. Hopkinson, Malvern
