The Role of Agricola

I'm still not sure where to place one of the earliest machine books: De Re Metallica by Agricola. It's both a scientific text and a business tome; a machine book and a geology field book. I finally found a copy online, at the ECHO Project. They kindly provide the original Latin version and the Hoover translation into English (very helpful for those of us who don't read German or Latin).
