4to (251x181 mm). [8], 484, [28, of which the last two are blank] pp. Collation: a4 A-Sss4. Leaf Sss4 is a blank. Printer's device on title page. Woodcut headpieces and initials. Full-page engraved portrait of Michele Foscarini on l. a4v. Contemporary vellum over boards, inked title on spine, red sprinkled edges (lascing front flyleaf). A very good copy with wide margins.
