About this Item

Per saper misurare tutte le cose, che si possono veder coll'occhio cosi in lunghezza, & larghezza; come in altezza, & profondita. Engraved printer's device on title page. Illustrated with 16 engravings, of which 8 are full-page; numerous fine decorative initials and headpieces. [12], 60pp. Short thin 4to (measures 6.25 x 8.5 inches), bound in contemporary brown calf with blind and gilt- tooled armorial covers (rubbed; joints starting but still very firm; very clean internally). Venetia: Apresso Giordano Ziletti, 1564. Text in Italian. A scarce book detailing how to take survey measurements using the Holometro instrument.
