  1. The title of the edition of 1591 is: “Jo. Baptistæ Portæ Neapolitani Magiæ Naturalis Libri Viginti, Ab ipso quidem authore ante biennium adaucti, nunc vero ab infinitis, quibus editio illa scatebat mendis, optime repurgati; in quibus scientiarum Naturalium divitiæ & deliciæ demonstrantur. Accesit Index, rem omnem dilucidà repræsentans, copiosissimus. Francofurti, Apud Andreæ Wecheli heredes, Claudium Marnium & Joann. Aubrium. MDXCI.”
  2. According to Porta the seat of vision had to be between the pupil and the centre of the eye where the visual rays from the various points of the object intersect, if the object was to be seen erect; and consequently he inferred that the seat of vision was in the crystalline lens, which, as he says, is “extra oculi centrum.”

  4. Another work on optics by this same author written in 1553 but apparently published many years after his death has the following title: “R. D.

Lugduni Apud Ludovicum Hurillion, MDCXIII, cum privilegio.”
