Notes:
Title from caption title of prefatory poem on leaf A1r.
Place of printing from Szabó & Hellebrant.
Szabó & Hellebrant give 1551 as imprint date. Hirsch argues that this work "was almost certainly published before the larger work, the De admirandis Hungariae aquis hypomnemation" [i.e. before September 1551]. Cf. R. Hirsch, "Georg Wernher and Sigismund von Herberstein," Gutenberg Jahrbuch (1963), p. 121.
Signatures: A⁴.
Without pagination.
Woodcut initial.
"Folio A1 recto contains distichs which are basically the same as those on the verso of the title page of the De admirandis Hungariae aquis hypomnemation, where they are identified as the work of Johannes Ludovicus Brassicanus ... The printed text of this poem is shorter by two lines than the version in the other Wernher tract and shows variant readings."--R. Hirsch, "Georg Wernher and Sigismund von Herberstein," Gutenberg Jahrbuch (1963), p. 120.
Local notes:
Penn Libraries copy bound with (i.e. between leaves B1 and B2 of): Werner, Georg. De admirandis Hungariae aquis hypomnemation. Viennae Austriae : Excudebat Egidius Aquila, Anno Domini MDLI ... [1551].
Purchased for the Penn Libraries in 1956. Rudolf Hirsch conjectures that this volume, as well as a copy of Georg von Reichersdorff's Chorographia Transyluaniae (Vienna: Aegidius Aquila, 1550) acquired by the Libraries in the same transaction, was disbound from a Sammelband owned by Sigismund von Herberstein. Cf. R. Hirsch, "Georg Wernher and Sigismund von Herberstein," Gutenberg Jahrbuch (1963), p. 121.
Penn Libraries copy has ms. gift inscription ("M[agnifico]. D[omino]. D[omino]. Sig[ismundo]: L[ibero]. B[aroni]. I[n] Herb[erstein]: D[ono] D[edit] Wernerus") from the author, Georg Werner, to Sigismund von Herberstein at foot of leaf A1r.
Penn Libraries copy has two ms. corrections to text on leaf A1r: "'Amici' has been changed in manuscript to 'Amicis[que]'; 'et' in line 16, a misprint, has been stricken out" (R. Hirsch, "Georg Wernher and Sigismund von Herberstein," Gutenberg Jahrbuch (1963), p. 120).
