I, item 20: Printing and the Mind of Man, 79 'The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times.' ... 'The De Re Metallica embraces everything connected with the mining industry and metallurgical processes, including administration, prospecting, the duties of officials and companies and the manufacture of glass, sulphur and alum. The magnificent series of 273 large woodcut ills. by Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch add to its value. Some of the most important sections are those on mechanical engineering and the use of water-power, hauling, pumps, ventilation, blowing of furnaces, transport of ores etc. showing a very elaborate technique. ... In Book V, ... Agricola made an important contribution to physical geology. He recognized the influence of water and wind on the shaping of the landscape and gave a clear account of the order of the strata he saw in the mines. ... Agricola supplied a new scientific classification of minerals based on their physical properties. He described 80 different minerals and metallic ores [including 20 new ones], their mode of occurrence and mutual relation. ...': Verne Roberts Coll., comp. p. 6 [first english ed. 1912]: Barchas Coll. [Stanford Univ. 1985] see item 33 'The son of a wool dyer, Agricola was a physician who was comfortable with the classics and corresponded with noted humanists such as Erasmus. His medical practice took him to Joachimstal and to Chemnitz, important Central European mining centers, where he learned enough about mining to invest profitably. He began to set down his observations on geology, mineralogy, metallurgy and mining practice. The De Re Metallica, published shortly after his death, represents 15 years of collecting and writing these observations, and three more years for the illustrator, Blasius Weffring of St. Joachimstal, to produce the nearly 300 woodcuts. ...': MIT Institute archives & Special coll.

On Hubert Maclean Evans [19.. - 1971], anatomist, discoverer of Vitamin E, bibliophile and avid bookcollector, see a.o. the speech held in March 1971 by Jake Zeitlin on 'San Francisco Bay Rare Book Collectors'. The presence of the bookplate in this copy of Agricola raises a few questions. Strictly speaking this good copy would most likely not have been part of one of the Evans collections, because of the non-original binding [prior to the present binding the book was covered in a dreadful 19th c. re used vellum) and because of the removed library stamps, professionally filled in w. paper at a much earlier date. Evans would have discarded this copy in a time when [from 1900 onwards] copies in original bindings were still to be had with some ease. Not so nowadays! Research into the provenance [early 1990ties to 2009] indicates that at some time the bookplate was added from another Evans book.
