First and uncommon original edition of this work, typographically very accurate, which describes the six
days of the creation of the world from a philosophical point of view, with references to Dante’s Paradise, of which
the author was a great admirer.

Excerpts from Paradise are present on the
back of the title page and register.
“ This is his rarest work.”

Francesco Cattani da Diacceto
(Florence 1466/ 1522 ) was a
Florentine Neo-Platonic philosopher, disciple
of Marsilio Ficino, whom he succeeded in the chair of the Studio di Firenze.
He then became rector of the Accademia
Neoplatonica.
He shared Pico della Mirandola’s intent to reconcile Platonism,
Aristotelianism and Christianity.
