    De re metallica, libri XII:

    quibus Officia, Instrumenta, Machinae, ac omnia denique ad Metallicam spectantia, non modo luculentissimè describuntur, sed & per effigies, suis locis insertas, adiunctis Latinis, Germanicisque appellationibus ita ob oculos ponuntur, ut clarius tradi non possint. Eiusdem De animantibus subterraneis Liber, ab Autore recognitus: cum Indicibus diversis, quicquid in opere tractatum est, pulchrè demonstrantibus.
    First edition. "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times" (PMM). The book is extensively illustrated with a fine series of almost 300 woodcuts, some signed with the monogram "RMD", generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl. 1525-1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring.
