A rare Renaissance book on fortifications written by Carlo Teti, "Discorsi delle fortificationi, del sig. Carlo Tetti. Oue diffusamente si dimostra, quali debbano essere i siti delle fortezze ... & altre cose à loro appartenenti, con le figure di esse. Hora di nuouo da lui medesimo ricorretti, & ampliati del secondo libro. Con gli elenchi di tutti i capitoli; & tauola di tutte le materie, che in essi si trattano ", printed in 1575 in Venice by Bolognino Zaltiero.

This book on forts is of particular note as it describes the  sector (or military compass), thus predating the more famous compass made by  Galileo Galilei.

Illustrated with over 50 woodcuts (see the many photos).

Title page with a restoration (see the photo), some dampstain, but a very good copy printed on crisp Renaissance paper.

Rare.

Pages: 3 leaves + one original blank + 119 + 8. The text is complete. Missing four folding plates in the end.
