Bound together in exquisite Bohemian vellum, forming a sammelband, these two works create an illustrated manual for still-life and portrait artists. De Symmetria is the first two books of the Latin edition of his elaborate study of human anatomy and proportion. Underweysung is the result of Dürers lifelong study of geometry, mathematics, and the methods of art. Both books demonstrate Dürers technical and artistic brilliance. This Octavo Edition shows these extraordinary works in remarkable detail and includes bibliographical data and English translations of Dürers texts. Commentary by David Price.
