First Florentine edition and edited by Mariano Tucci, of Pontano’s most extensive and original collection of poems on astrology, meteorology, horticulture and pastoral literature. It is based on the 1505 Aldine 'editio princeps' ('Giunti tipografi' 51) the poem 'De Urania', deals with the heavenly bodies, their influence on the earth and their supposed influence on human affairs; the 'Meteora' on the weather; 'De Hortis Hesperidum' on the growing of oranges and lemons.
Internally holds pretty good, both end leaves detached (I will supply some old end leaves as well) some page sign of small worms.

This edition is pretty rare.
