About this Item: ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1719 edition. Language: Latin. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: apud Jo: Mariam Salvioni typographum Vaticanum in Archigymnasio sapientiae 57 pages. Seller Inventory # 457546263

Contemporary full vellum binding, boards a bit bowed (as are commonly seen with old vellum bindings). A bit of foxing, mainly in the margins. Printed on good paper. Small hole to the flyleaf. Still a very nice copy indeed. * Very scarce. Magnificent work from the Vatican: Michael Mercati (1541-96), director of the Vatican Botanical Garden, was a could-have-been groundbreaking paleonthologist, if he hadn't died before completing this work. It is built on his vast and systematic collection of minerals, fossils and shells, which were cased in 19 large cabinets in his "Metallotheca" (as a supplement to the "Bibliotheca", but also with a section on marble samples, described from some of the newly found antique masterpieces situated in the Vatican, as "Laocoon" and "Apollo Belvedere". This work - written in the 16th century - would surely have placed him as one of the founding fathers of paleonthology and geology, but due to his death, the work was not completed, but only consisted of the magnificent copperplate engravings (a highlight of renaissance skills) and approximately half of the texts for the various cabinets done. An attempt to get the work published was made by Carlo Roberti Dati in the 17th century, but to no avail. Other pioneers like Nicolaus Steno (1638-86) saw - and was influenced by - the unfinished work in the Vatican, and used one of the most iconic copperplates (of a shark skull) in his Canis carchariae dissectum caput (1667). When the Metallotheca was finally published in 1717, its discoveries were mainly sadly overtaken by 125 years of research. Nevertheless the finished book was a masterpiece of prints and typography (with text mainly in Latin, but also in Greek, Hebrew and Arabic), making a monument for the neglected genius. In 1719, an even more magnificent B-issue was made: The main book block was still the first edition, but a new title page was issued (stating 1719) and 20 of the plates were remade and added, notably both Laocoon and Apollo Belvedere, making artistically new impressions of them. One of the highlights of renaissance scientific works, though printed with 125 years delay. Seller Inventory # 631874

FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of the superb catalogue of the Vatican 'armaria', a series of cabinets with drawers which housed Mercati's fossils, marbles, ores, shells, earth samples, salts, alums, gums and resins; of particular interest to gemologists are the fine illustrations of lapis lazuli, jet, amber (including the absurd depiction of a frog encased in amber), precious coral, pearls, and nacre. "The collection reflects the state of knowledge extant at the time and therefore includes objects of presumed magical or medicinal virtue as well as those which are correctly identified and described. The plates can scarcely be equaled for fidelity to originals and the exquisite care employed in their engraving and printing" (Sinkankas). Mercati (1541-1593) directed the botanical garden of the Vatican and soon became famous for his scientific achievements. "As a naturalist Mercati's greatest interest lay in collecting minerals and fossils; this collection later formed the basis of the work that has made him famous: Metallotheca (Rome, 1717)" (DSB). The work existed only in manuscript at the time of Mercati's death, but it was prepared for publication by Givanni Maria Lancisi (1654-1720). In 1719 the work was reissued with a cancel title, a portrait of Lancisi added, and an appendix with most of Gaumier's plates in the main work re-engraved.- Visit our website to see more images!.
