Coelestium corporum, et rerum ab ipsis pendentium accurata explication per instrumenta, rotulas, & figuras. Venice: Jacobus Antonius Somasci, 1605. In-4.

Contemporary ivory vellum with flaps, handwritten title on spine. (Notes on the title partly erased and at the end of the volume, foxing, small worm work in the white margin.) FIRST EDITION under this title of the work which was first published in 1588 and which bore the title Theatrum Mundi.
