REGIOMONTANUS, Johannes & PEURBACH Georg [PTOLEMY].
A beautiful copy, entirely untouched in the publisher's boards, of the second printed edition (first 1496) of this epochal text. The date of publication of this edition of the <i>Epitome coincides</i>, of course, with that of the first edition of Copernicus' <i>De revolutionibus</i> (printed at Nuremberg by Petreius). In his annotated Census of Copernicus' great work, Owen Gingerich notes that the 1543 <i>Epitome</i> is the work most commonly bound up with copies of <i>De revolutionibus</i> (it is found with 12 copies of the first edition and four of the second), and comments that this is appropriate not just because of the timing but also the subject matter. But in his review of the <i>Census</i> (<i>Journal for the History of Astronomy</i> 34 (2003), pp. 97-111), Adam Mosley suggests that there may be another explanation. Petreius studied at Basel, after which he worked as a corrector in the printing office of Heinrich Petri's father Adam. Mosley suggests that the two printer-publishers, Petreius and Petri, may have been co-distributors of the first edition of <i>De revolutionibus</i>, and the close relationship between them is further suggested by the fact that Petri published the second edition of Copernicus in 1566. <br/><br/> "Regiomontanus' influence was felt in both western and eastern Europe and his publication of the Almagest helped to re-introduce Greek astronomy into the western world" (PMM 40). "The <i>Epytoma</i> is a central work in the history of Renaissance astronomy in that it codified and corrected the somewhat disordered Ptolemaic astronomy of the middle … [Click Below for Full Description]

Numerous 6-, 7-, & 14-line floriated & historiated woodcut initials, xylographic title, & woodcut printer's device on verso of final leaf. 107 leaves (lacking the final blank). Folio (298 x 210 mm.), 17th cent. calf (joints & corners well repaired, first & final leaves with some worming, second & third leaves entirely remargined), single gilt fillet round sides, gilt arabesque in center of each cover, spine gilt. Venice: Johannes Hamman, 21 Aug. 1496. First edition and a good copy of this great book in the history of astronomy. "The importance of this book lies in the fact that it enshrines, within the editor's commentary, the first appearance in print, in a Latin translation from the Greek, of the monumental compendium of Claudius Ptolemaeus of Alexandria known as the Almagest...The Almagest is an encyclopaedia of astronomical knowledge...which established astronomy as a mathematical discipline. It contains an elaborate theory of the planets, the discovery of the second inequality of the moon's motion (known as evection), the determination of the distance of the moon, an exposition of spherical and plane trigonometry and an account of the construction and use of astronomical instruments... "Regiomontanus' influence was felt in both western and eastern Europe and his publication of the Almagest helped to re-introduce Greek astronomy into the … [Click Below for Full Description]
