[Woodcut and letterpress/houtsnede met drukwerk] Euclides Elementorum Libri XV Demonstrati.
Title-page from the third edition of the important sixteenth edition of Euclid’s books edited by the Jesuit mathematician Clavius. The first edition appeared in Rome in 1574, then it was later completely revised in 1589, and the latter is based on the present: all three are dedicated to Charles Emmanuel Duke of Savoy. This impression comes from a convent in Brussels, as the inscription in pen and ink would suggest.
Letterpress and woodcut on paper; total: 308 x 207 mm; mounted on cardboard mat; several reparations, creases and dirty spots, yet charming impression. Date of print 1591.
