EUCLID (fl. ca. 300 B.C). Optica & catoptrica, Greek with Latin translation by J. Pena. Paris: Andreas Wechel, 1557. 2 parts in one, 4 o (206 x 148 mm). Woodcut printer's device on titles, woodcut diagrams in text. 20th-century quarter sheep and marbled boards. First edition in Greek, ?first separate edition. An edition of the Catoptrica was published in Strassburg in 1557; the priority of the two editions is unknown. Euclid's Optica was the first Greek work on perspective. The Catoptrica, a treatise on mirrors, was attributed by Proclus to Euclid but is a later compilation. Latin translations of both works appeared previously in Georgius Valla's massive compendium De expetendis et fugiendis rebus opus (Venice: Aldus, 1501). Adams E-1020.
