CÓRDOBA, Alfonso de
Large printer's mark, printed in red & black on verso of final leaf. Two parts in one vol. [52] leaves (incl. the blank B8). Small 4to, early 19th cent. calf, triple gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red & green leather lettering pieces on spine, a.e.g. Venice: Petrus Liechtenstein, 1503. First edition of this rare set of astronomical tables which were prepared for Isabella I (1451-1504), the Queen of Castile and Aragon. The book is divided into two parts: the first includes a dedication to Isabella and Ferdinand (who, most famously, sent Columbus on his voyage to discover a route to the East Indies) and a set of canons in sixty chapters explaining the use of the tables, with several examples. The second part contains the tables. In the Commentariolus, Copernicus' first draft of his planetary theory, which remained unpublished until the late 19th century, he refers to the length of the year. Copernicus mentions the values given by four astronomers: three of whom are well-known predecessors, Hipparchus, Ptolemy, and al-Battani. The fourth was referred to as "Hispalensis." Thanks to the researches of L. Birkenmajer in the early 20th century, "Hispalensis" has been identified as Alfonso de Córdoba, a contemporary of Copernicus. He was a Spanish astronomer, a doctor of arts and medicine, and probably born in 1458 in Seville. In the beginning of the 16th century, Alfonso de Córdoba lived in Rome and was employed by the powerful Borgia family, serving as physician to Cardinal Cesar Borgia (1475-1507) and was also working for Cesar's father, Rodrigo Borgia (1431-150 … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARCHIMEDES / BOETHIUS / CAMPANO DA NOVARA / GAURICO, Luca, ed
Venice: Ioan. Bapti. Sessa, 1503. 32 ff. with elaborate woodcut on title, woodcut initials and diagrams throughout.  Bound in later marbled paper over boards.  Title and first 3 leaves stained at outer margin, scattered light waterstaining, cropped at top margin affecting running head and foliation, a handful of leaves reinforced in the gutter, repaired tear on ff. 30-31 not affecting legibility. Printed on exceptionally heavy paper; overall very good. First published Latin edition of De Mensura Circuli and De Quadratura Parabolae, containing Archimedes’ application of the method of exhaustion (the early form of integration) and the earliest theoretical calculation of Ï€; apart from Valla’s excerpts of 1501 in his encyclopedia, the first printed Latin texts of Archimedes (Rose, p. 50). The brief treatise On the Measurement of the Circle contains "one of the most popular results of [Archimedes’s] mathematical investigations" (Dijsterhuis, p. 222).  Archimedes calculated the ratio between the circumference and the diameter of a circle (not called Ï€ until early modern times) as being less than 3-1/7 and greater than 3-10/71. The average of these two bounds is 3.1418, an error of about 0.0002. Archimedes obtained his sophisticated estimate for Ï€ by circumscribing and inscribing a circle with regular polygons having 96 sides. "In the course of this proof [of Ï€] Archimedes showed that he had an accurate method of approximating the roots of large numbers.  It is also of interest that he there gave an approximation for √3, namely 1351/780 > √3 > 265/153.  How he … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dürer, Albrecht (1471-1528)
Albrecht Durer, 1503. AN EXQUISITE WOODCUT FROM ALBRECHT DURER'S GROUNDBREAKING LIFE OF THE VIRGIN SERIES Woodcut ca. 1503 Literature: Bartsch, Le peintre graveur, 89; Meder, Dürer-Katalog, 201, after text; Troyen, Life of the Virgin This exquisite woodcut entitled, "Flight into Egypt," was originally produced for Albrecht Dürer's famed Life of the Virgin cycle. Dürer began assembling the works for the series in 1501, publishing the first complete edition of it in 1511. Life of the Virgin ultimately contained 19 woodcuts by Dürer and a Latin text supplied by Benedictus Chelidonius. The series as a whole and this woodcut in particular marvelously demonstrate Dürer's unparalleled skills as a graphic artist. Indeed, this lush work, which remains in superb condition, beautifully demonstrates Dürer's exemplary and crisp modeling skills, keen awareness of human psychology, and consummate understanding of the Italianate one-point perspective system. . Book.
