Bibliographic details

Printed throughout in Roman letter of various sizes and mostly in double columns. First title page in red and black; heraldic woodcuts on second and third titles, devices, initials and text diagrams throughout. Final leaf, with large woodcut of Saint Catherine on colophon, is in facsimile on contemporary paper. Old vellum, new endpapers; occasional stains and a few wormholes. This edition of Aristotle's scientific and philosophical writings was brought together by Johann Eck (1486-1543) and here first printed in Augsburg by Grimm and Wirsung. This is also the first time the beautiful heraldic woodcuts were used. Research suggests that the artist could be Hans Burgkmair who worked in Augsburg at the time the book was printed. Another source indicates the woodcuts could be by the "Petrarca-Master" or that Books 2 and 3 were done by Hans Weiditz.
