Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. First published in 1546 the second edition was the first to contain the Addendum to Book VI, which is an early important treatise on fortification. Niccolo Fontana Tartaglia (1499-1557), born in Brescia, was an Italian mathematician who originated the science of ballistics which he first treated in his earlier work Nova Scientia. The first two books in the Quesiti consist of dialogues on this subject, the first with the cannon founder Alberghetto di Alberghetti, the third book is on gunpowder, the fourth on military formations in battle, the fifth on the geometer's compass is a dialogue with his friend Richard Wentworth, Henry VIII's envoy in Venice (the entire book is dedicated to Henry VIII of England), the sixth, as noted, on fortifications, the seventh and eighth are on mechanics and the final ninth book is on problems in arithmetic and ends with the famous correspondence with Cardan on their rival claims to have been the first to solve cubic equations.
