Catalogue Note

"Five additional essays, not part of the earlier 1533 Paris edition, are included here. These added essays are simply extensions of the earlier ones—except the last, De precio metallorum et monetis. This breaks new ground in discussing the price differential between gold and silver and the influence on the local economy of foreign as well as counterfeit money" (Tomash & Williams).
