Brady, John.
London: Pr. for the author & sold by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, & Brown, et al., 1812–13. 8vo (21.6 cm, 8.5"). 2 vols. I: xxxvi, 387, [1] pp.; 1 plt. II: [2], 395, [1] pp. Second edition of this popular survey of the history of time and calendars from the ancient world onwards, following the first edition of 1812. Brady here describes the rituals and lore associated with the regulation of time, in all its divisions and subdivisions; much material from the lives of the saints is present. Allibone quotes the London Quarterly Review's assertion that "Especially to students in divinity and law, [the work] will be an invaluable acquisition; and we hesitate not to declare that, in proportion as its merits become known to the public, it will find its way to the libraries of every gentleman and scholar in the kingdom." Contemporary opinion seems to have borne that prediction out, as the subscribers list here (carried over from the first edition) is substantial and the work went through several editions in the first few years after its initial publication.    Vol. I is illustrated with one wood-engraved plate depicting a Saxon almanac, and seven in-text engravings depicting Odin, Frigga, Thor, and the other deities with days named in their honor.    Provenance: Signature on title-pages of George Buckton, vol. I dated 1812 and vol. II dated 1813.         Allibone 237 (listing 1813 & 1814 eds. only); NSTC B4120. Contemporary treed calf, rebacked preserving original spines with gilt-stamped titles, gilt-ruled and -dotted compartment bands, and gilt-stamped compartment decorations; ori … [Click Below for Full Description]

Isabella I, Queen of Spain
1501. Single quarto manuscript document signed by Queen Isabella of Spain, dated 20 November, 1501. With "La Reyna" at the top, and signed "Yo la Reyna." The letter is for a credit to Isabella's chamberlain, Sancho de Paredes for various supplies, services, and expenditures. Matted and framed opposite a portrait of Isabella. The entire piece measures 19 inches by 20.5 inches. Rare and desirable signed by Queen Isabella. Isabella I was Queen of Castile. She was married to Ferdinand II of Aragon. Their marriage became the basis for the political unification of Spain under their grandson, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. After a struggle to claim her right to the throne, she reorganized the governmental system, brought the crime rate to the lowest it had been in years, and unburdened the kingdom of the enormous debt her brother had left behind. Her reforms and those she made with her husband had an influence that extended well beyond the borders of their united kingdoms. Isabella and Ferdinand are known for completing the Reconquista, and for supporting and financing Christopher Columbus' 1492 voyage that led to the opening of the New World and to the establishment of Spain as the first global power which dominated Europe and much of the world for more than a century. Isabella was granted the title Servant of God by the Catholic Church in 1974. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

SACROBOSCO, Johannes de (John of HOLYWOOD).
Alden & Landis 505/8; BMC STC German, p. 772; JCB I, pp. 40-41; Proctor, German Books 1501-1520, 10386; VD16, J-712 (4 copies); cf. Adams H-714 (1501 Quentell edition); DSB XII, pp. 60-63. Fourth Quentell edition, extensively illustrated, of Sacrobosco's classic 13th-century treatise on astronomy De sphaera mundi ("On the sphere of the world"), with extensive commentary by the Czech astronomer Wenceslaus Fabri de Budweis (1455-1518). Two of the diagrams clearly explain a solar and a lunar eclipse. The present copy is extensively annotated by a (near) contemporary hand, adding even some further illustrations, including an astronomical diagram. The book is divided into four chapters treating the definition of a sphere; the various circles and their names; the cosmic, chronic, and heliacal risings and settings of the constellations; and the movements of the sun, moon and planets."Sacrobosco's fame rests firmly on his De sphaeria, a small work based on Ptolemy and his Arabic commentators, published about 1220 [...] It was quite generally adopted as the fundamental astronomy text, for often it was so clear that it needed little or no explanation." (DSB). Sacrobosco was the first European scholar to use Arabic sources for his astronomical studies, helping to spread Arabic knowledge to the Western world. He describes the earth as a sphere, opening the way for the Renaissance astronomical revolution of Copernicus and Gallileo. The work had a great impact on the science of astronomy in the following centuries. Alden & Landis cites the present edition as, "The earliest edn to refer t … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALLA, Giorgio.
[Colophon:] Venice: Aldus Manutius for Giovanni Pietro Valla, December 1501. First and only edition of the first great humanistic Renaissance encyclopaedia, an extraordinarily rich collection of translations from classical authors, and "une des plus belles productions des presses Aldines" (Graesse). It contains the first printings of any of the works of Archimedes, Apollonius, Autolycus, Eutocius, and Hero of Alexandria, Valla's own commentaries on Euclid (the first to be printed based on the Greek text), and the first printing of Ptolemy's star catalogue (the Almagest was not printed until 1515). "For the next forty years at least, De Rebus Expetendis remained almost the only printed source of reference for the works of Apollonius, Archimedes, the Eutocius commentaries, and Hero. It was used extensively by Leonardo [da Vinci] and Copernicus" (Rose 1975, p. 48). Leonardo owned a copy of De Expetendis, translated sections from it into Italian, and used it in his work on geometric proportions. De Expetendis is now recognized "as one of the most important direct sources of Leonardo's mathematical knowledge" (Kelley & Popkin, p. 45, n. 55). Copernicus, who studied the book in Padua, learned from it of the heliocentric ideas of Aristarchus; he also "made heavy use of the mathematical excerpts translated by Valla from such Greek authors as Archimedes, Autolycus and Ptolemy. Moreover, Copernicus used a star-catalogue printed by Valla which differs significantly from that of Ptolemy" (Rose 1975, pp. 123-4). De Expetendis was also an important source for Johannes Werner's work on co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lely (Gilbert)
86 pages in-8 numérotées à la main, dont 4 pages autographes, sous couverture cartonnée autographe. Épreuves de l'autobiographie de Girolamo Cardano (1501-1576) : Jérôme Cardan, Ma Vie, Pages Magistrales suivie de Préceptes pour mes fils, traduite du latin par Paul Le Gendre de l'Académie de Médecine, et Gilbert Lely. Ouvrage en réalité entièrement retravaillé et édité par Lely sur ce mathématicien, médecin, astrologue, physicien, inventeur, philosophe, etc., de la fin de la Renaissance italienne. En page 2, Lely a rédigé la Table autographe du livre ; en page 4, il a également rédigé un Avertissement autographe, qu'il signe de ses initiales : "Ces pages ont été publiées de janvier 1937 a janvier 1938 dans la revue Hippocrate dont j'étais le rédacteur en chef. La traduction de M. Paul Le Gendre, qui m'avait été remise par des héritiers, était très correcte [...] mais à l'état de brouillon". Il l'a retravaillée complètement et en a modifié la forme, mais il précise qu'il n'avait pas, à l'époque de la publication dans Hippocrate, fait figurer sa signature à côté de celle de Le Gendre: "On ne l'y rencontre qu'au bas des fragments de Jérôme Cardan parus dans le numéro des Cahiers G.L.M. consacré au Rêve et publié sous la direction d'André Breton en mars 1938". Les épreuves de sa Notice sur Jérôme Cardan comportent de nombreuses corrections, ajouts autographes et rajouts de paragraphes autographes. Le reste des épreuves comporte également quelques corrections et ajouts autographes, ainsi que des corrections typographiques. Bel ensemble montrant le critique-poète au travail.. … [Click Below for Full Description]
