Some light browning, but a very good copy. All the most famous subsequent authors on the subjects are somehow indebted to Tiberti cf. Sabbatini, Bio-bibliografia chiromantica, Reggio Emilia, , pp. The original dedication by Tiberti to Ottavio Ubaldino, earl of Mercatello, is followed by a new dedication addressed by the editor Johannes Dryander to the Mainz nobleman Johann Furderer de Richtenfels.
The text of the two Mainz editions differs significantly from that of the first Bologna edition, a thing that can only be explained by the fact that Dryander had not access to the first edition or to the manuscript used as a basis for the first edition; he probably had at hand only a defective manuscript and on several occasions he had to intervene to complete the incomplete text.
Tiberti defends palmistry and tries to prove it as a science.
In the arrangement of the seven planets on the lines of the palm, he significantly deviates from his predecessors, creating a new system that had a long-lasting influence on his successors. The work was later put in the Index. Antioco Tiberti was born into a noble Cesena family. After completing his studies in France, he came back to Italy, published his treatise on palmistry, which made him famous, and had the temerity to go to Rome at the invitation of Pope Alexander VI to defend his case.
He did it so well that he was exiled, but not convicted. In he went to Rimini, where he was arrested by order of Pandolfo Malatesta. While he was in prison, the latter visited him to learn about his future.
Tiberti predicted him that he would lose his lordship and would die in exile and in extreme poverty. Later, during an attempt to escape, Tiberti was captured and beheaded his corpse remained unburied for almost a year. Shortly after Malatesta was ousted by Cesare Borgia and died in exile and extreme poverty as predicted. The only source about Tiberi's life is an eighteenth-century manuscript Diatribae caesenates written by a certain G.

The two works are bound together in a blind-stamped calf binding made by the Flemish Jacob Clercx de Geel from Antwerp active from about to He was succeeded by his son Gheert who was married with Abraham Ortelius' sister Anna. Gheert used the same panel with the first name of his father erased. In the same period, Jan Tys from Mechelen used a panel with the same design and the same text border but with his own name cf. Evidence and Principles, New York, , pp. On each cover there are two impressions of a panel divided into two rectangles each occupied by three animals above: dragon, rabbit, dog; below: cattle, eagle, deer enclosed within the curves of a vine branch.
Between these two panels is another panel figuring dancing peasants and a piper cf. This seems to be the only surviving specimen of the two panels in combination with the frieze of dancers signed by Jacob Clerx see also L.
