Summary
"The only surviving work of the first-century Roman scholar and naturalist Pliny the Elder, this is an encyclopedia of learning dealing with the various branches of science as well as art as it relates to nature. In his preface the writer acknowledges that he has drawn material from two thousand books and one hundred authors. - Nicholas Jenson, one of the world?s great type-designers, was born in France about 1420. He was a die-cutter by profession, and it is believed that he learned printing in Mainz before establishing the second printing press in Venice about 1470. Within ten years he had printed over one hundred books on a variety of subjects; this book is judged to be one of his finest The type is Venetian Roman with capitals and paragraph marks in red or blue. The volume has wooden boards with red morocco back." -- [from 1973 Dysart Exhibition Catalogue, which uses 1472 rather than 1477 as publication date]. --
