complete, wholly collated copy of the Sphaera of the Sacro Busto
the title page is missing, however, (1 page only printed on the front) as well as 2 lay-on turntables that originally must have been on two images, but have been lost in most of the known copies.
however, the original title page does not mention a year
However, this early edition from 1545 is sometimes bound with a follow-up commentary that has its own title page and preface, also in layout, which are completely different.
deals with the work of SacroBusto aka John Holywood.
this octavo version came after the quarters of the 15th century and has long remained the edition format.
