      Paris, Simon de Colines 1533.. Folio. (36) Bll., 101 Bll., (1) Bl. (weiss); (10), 42; (10), 53, (3), 13 Bll. Ohne das letzte weiße Bl. Mit grosser Holzschnitt-Druckermarke ("Tempus" Marke 1 [Abb. s. Renouard S. 104]) und vielen Initialen in Holzschnitt.Kalbsleder d. Zt. (rissig, berieben, Bezugsfehlstellen an Kanten und Kopf sowie Fuss des Rückens ergänzt, Vordergelenk angerissen) mit sparsamer Blindpressung und goldgeprägtem Supralibros auf beiden Deckeln. Wohl zweite Colines-Ausgabe, zugleich zweite Ausgabe der zoologischen Schriften des Aristoteles in dieser Geschlossenheit und Vollständigkeit. Eine seltene Ausgabe. Schweiger und Hoffmann führen neben den Colines-Ausgaben 1524 und 1533 eine von 1522 an, die sich aber sonst nicht verifizieren lässt (es gibt aus diesem Jahr einen Colines-Druck mit den Ethiken des Aristoteles). Mit den hier versammelten Schriften gilt Aristoteles (384 - 322 v. Chr.) als "Begründer der Biologie und... Urvater aller Zoologen" (DNP 1, Sp. 1139/1140). Die Thematik ist weit gespannt, wie die folgenden Überschriften schon andeuten: "Über die Entstehung der Tiere", "Die Geschichte [gemeint: die Arten] der Tiere", "Die Fortbewegung d. T.", "Die Anatomie d. T." Die Tatsache, dass Aristoteles die Erforschung der Botanik seinem Freund und Schüler Theophrast überliess, hatte zur Folge, dass in den Inkunabelausgaben und in zahlreichen des 16. Jahrhunderts in der Regel die ersten drei aristotelischen Schriften mit den Werken Theophrasts gekoppelt und erst relativ spät alle zoologischen Werke des Philosophen zusammengeführt wurden. Spätere Spiegel, unter Verwendung wohl ursprünglicher Pergament-Streifen. Titel recto und verso mit Besitzereinträgen (der recto teils mitttels Rasur gelöscht, dadurch kleinere Papierdurchbrüche; Text / Druckermarke nicht betroffen). Vorsätze, letztes Bl. im weißen Rand, Titel und erste Bll. am äussersten Rand mit Feuchtigkeitsschäden, 1 Bl. mit Eckabriss.

        De re uxoria libelli duo. De re uxoria libri duo.

      Haganoae, Seceriana [Haguenau, Jean Secer], 1533 (au colophon).. Petit in-8, plein velin moderne a la Bradel, dos orne d'un petit fer aldin au centre et date en pied, titre dore, tranches rouges, 52 feuillets non pagines accompagnes de 3 lettrines, grande marque de l'imprimeur au colophon. Precoce edition, imprimee a Haguenau chez Jean Secer, de cet ouvrage compose a Florence en 1416 pour les noces de Laurent de Medicis, l'un des principaux traites de la periode sur la question du mariage et du statut de la femme. L'ouvrage, tres populaire au XVIe siecle, fut traduit dans les principales langues europeennes. Il est l'une des sources de Jean Bodin. Envisageant l'institution familiale dans ses relations avec le fonctionnement de la cite, Barbaro examine la nature du mariage du point de vue social et legal. Le deuxieme livre est plus specifiquement consacre aux devoirs de la femme et a son role auquel il accorde un role central. "With his emphasis in the 'De re uxoria' on the family as the basic unit of state and society, and on the duties of wives in this context, Barbaro created a new literary genre. Aided by his studies of works from Greek antiquity, he gave the conventional treatise on family life a new twist (...). The 'De re uxoria' stands as a pioneering work on the subject of love, marriage, and family in the early modern period" (B.G. Kohl & R.G. Witt. ed., 'The Earthly Republic. Italian Humanists on Government and Society', Manchester, 1978, p. 186-187). Petit traite rare et recherche pour sa singularite" (Osmont). (Panzer, 7, 111, n° 359 et 9, 472, n°359. VD16 B 356). Quelques piqures, plus prononcees aux derniers feuillets. Bon exemplaire..

Rare et precoce edition, de cette adaptation elegante, sous forme de dialogues, de la 'Theologie Naturelle' du medecin, theologien et philosophe catalan Raymond de Sebonde, auquel la traduction de Montaigne et son 'Apologie' apporta une notoriete immortelle. Compose par Pierre Dorland (Petrus Dorlandus), cette adaptation suscita des sa premiere parution (1499) une extraordinaire ferveur a travers toute l'Europe. Marguerite de Valois fit de cette 'Violette de l'Ame' son livre de chevet. Une autre reine de France, Eleonore d'Autriche, femme de Francois Ier, le fit traduire Les six premiers dialogues sont des adaptations de chacune des parties de la 'Theologie naturelle', "inflechie en terme de spiritualite erasmienne et marquee de reminiscence virgilienne", le septieme est, en propre de Pierre Dorland. D'abord imprimeur en France, d'inspiration reformee, l'editeur Merten de Keyser (ou Martin Lempereur) dut s'exiler a Anvers, apres qu'une serie d'interdits aient frappe ses productions. Sur ce texte, cf. J. Balsamo, 'Un gentilhomme et sa Theologie', in 'Montaigne et la theologie...' (dir. Ph. Desan), Droz, 2008, p. 105-126. Sur l'editeur cf.

Title printed within attractive woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials, large printer device to verso of final text leaf. Toning, light soiling to title page, internally clean. Attractive. * Later edition. Du Rivail, who studied under Alciati, was a humanist jurist, historian and member of the parlement of Grenoble. As Peter Stein has observed, Civilis Historiae Juris, a set of commentaries on the Twelve Tables, was an important contribution to the early-modern recovery of Roman law from the obfuscations of the glossators and Commentators. It was first published in 1515 and went through four subsequent editions, the final in 1539. The laws identified erroneously or questionably as those of the Twelve Tables are included as well. The final section is a historical sketch of canon law entitled Historia Pontificii Iuris Liber Singularis. "He concentrated on the main account of the 'origin of law' in the Digest, the long fragment...from Pomponius, and supplemented it by reference to Livy's account of the early republic. Du Rivail sought to reconstruct the contents of the Twelve Tables, and, since that legislation was said to be inspired by the Athenian laws of Solon, he included all known provisions of Solon's law (Stein). 3 copies of this edition located in North America (at the National Library of Canada, UC-Berkeley Law School and the Library of Congress).

        Ian Hamilton's March

      Longmans, Green, and Co. Here is a collector-worthy copy of the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fifth book - the second of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers. His daring escape made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill was first elected to Parliament the same year his two Boer War books - London to Ladysmith via Pretoria and Ian Hamilton's March - were published.  This American edition is considerably more scarce than the British; the publisher issued just 1533 copies (against 5003 British first edition, first printing copies).  The edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine.  Here is an unusually well preserved, near-fine example for collectors.  The red cloth binding is highly unusual in that it suffers almost none of the scuffing and uneven coloration endemic to this edition.  Most notably the spine remains absolutely uniform in color with bright gilt and only trivial wear limited to the spine corners.  There is slight overall soiling, but this does not detract from the overall appearance and particularly impressive shelf presentation.  The contents remain clean with no spotting.  The sole previous ownership mark noted is the remnant of a mostly removed bookplate at the rear pastedown.  The top edge gilt remains bright.  The fore edge is modestly age-toned.  The binding is very slightly loose at the front gutter but not enough to be called tender, with no damage to the binding integrity and no splitting of the endpapers.  A very handsome copy, scarce thus.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.2, Woods/ICS A5(ca), Langworth p.61.

        Regola da imparate scrivere varii caratteri de littere con li suoi compassi et misure: et il modo di temperare le penne secondo la sorte de littere che vorrai scrivere

      Venice: Nicolo d’Aristotile detto Zoppino, 1533. Very rare early augmented edition (second) of Arrighi’s treatise on writing containing both the writing samples and the instructions on preparing pen and ink, which were previously issued separately. (See below) Arrighi’s writing books were among the earliest and most influential of the genre, contributing significantly to the adoption of Italian hands throughout Europe. Ludovico Vicentino degli Arrighi (1475-1527) was a native of Vicenza but moved to Rome around 1510, where he entered the printing business. His ambition was to have his own printing house specializing in the production of limited-edition quality works for wealthy clients. He perfected his hand as a copyist for patrons such as Vittoria Colonna, Lorenzo de’ Medici and Machiavelli; through the patronage of Cardinal Giulio de’ Medici he was given work in the Papal chancery. He began composing a writing manual in 1522, and the resulting two volumes, La Operina and Il Modo de temperare le Penne were probably published in 1524 and 1525 respectively. (Osley, Becker). Arrighi took the blocks with him to Venice on a trip in 1527 and left them there; he subsequently had a falling out with his Roman partner Ugo da Carpi who had created a special type based on Arrighi’s design. As a result of this, subsequent Roman editions of Arrighi’s writing manual were based on recut blocks by da Carpi, while the Venetian editions by Zoppino used the original blocks. Zoppino’s editions were also the first to combine together the Operina and Il Modo, but only the present, second, edition includes Arrighi’s instructions for manufacturing fine ink.“If we compare the contents of Arrighi’s Operina and Il Modo with those of Tagliente’s Lo presente libro, we can detect, behind the general similarity, some important difference. Arrighi’s books are better presented and bear the stamp of a professional typographer; Arrighi has a higher proportion of white alphabets against a black background, an indication of Celebrino’s collaboration’ and his selection of models reveals the natural bias of a scribe trained in book hands and ecclesiastical work. He is thinking more of the Church than of the Foreign Office or Stock Exchange. His manuals, in other words, are cast in the mould of Rome rather than Venice.” (Osley, p. 34)OCLC: 1522 Operina: Newberry1523 Il modo: Newberry1523 Operina: Newberry1525 Operina: Newberry1532 Regola da imparare: Harvard* Becker, Practice of Letters 6; Bonacini 1968;. 4to.

        ...DE REBUS OCEANICIS & ORBE NOVO DECADES TRES: QUIBUS QUICQUID DE INVENTIS NUPER TERRIS TRADITUM, NOVARUM RERUM CUPIDUM LECTOREM RETINERE POSSIT, COPIOSE, FIDELITER, ERUDITEQUE DOCETUR. EIUSDEM PRAETEREA LEGATIONIS BABYLONICAE LIBRI TRES

      Basel: Joannes Bebelius, 1533.. [12],92 leaves. Folio. Bound to style in old vellum. Some very light dampstaining in margins. Discreet contemporary marginal annotations throughout. Very good. This esteemed early Americanum contains Martyr's initial three Decades, first published in 1516, supplemented in this edition by an abridgement of the fourth Decade. Martyr, a native of Italy, served the Spanish court in numerous capacities: soldier, priest, courtier, chaplain, teacher, historian, and ambassador. "In 1520 he became secretary to the Council of the Indies and later was appointed by emperor Charles V as the first official chronicler of the Indies. Although Martyr never set foot in the New World, he used his privileged position as a courtier to gather a great wealth of information from documents and through personal interviews. Following the model of the Latin historian Titus Livius, the Decades are volumes written in Latin divided into ten books each. They cover all aspects of the New World - the geography, the natural world...the natives, and all major events after the discovery" - Delgado-Gomez. Based on firsthand information the author was able to access through his position on the Council of the Indies, the Decades include accounts of the discoveries of Columbus, Vespucci, Cabot, and Cortes. In addition, there is information concerning the conquest of Mexico and details regarding Spanish settlements in the New World including Florida, Cuba, Hispaniola, and the Caribbean. Included in this edition, as in the 1516 printing, is Martyr's account of his embassy to Egypt in 1501 on behalf of King Ferdinand. A nice copy of this fundamental text by the first Spanish historian of the New World. HARRISSE 176. CHURCH 65. SABIN 1557. MEDINA (BHA) 92. MAGGS BIBLIOTHECA AMERICANA VII:4923. BELL A213.

        Cosmographia introductio

      Venice,: Io. Antonius da Sabbio & others, July, 1533.. Small octavo, with a large woodcut on title-page of an astrolabe enclosing the world, full-page astronomical woodcut on the verso, numerous illustrations and diagrams in the text, printer's device on last leaf; a few stains but a very good copy in old half red calf. Essential cosmographical text of the renaissance: the German humanist Apian, better known by the latinised form of his name as Apianus, produced a book in 1524 that became one of the most popular of all scientific works, an early geographical text with numerous woodcuts of the earth, the Zodiac, and examples of determining longitude and latitude. Its popularity was quite extraordinary by comparison with other popular books of the period: over nearly a century Apianus' text went through more than forty-five editions, in four languages, published in seven cities, by at least eighteen publishers.This rare early edition is an example of the popular shortened format of this widely-studied work on cosmography. It neatly summarises the Renaissance world view, and includes several references to Vespucci's discovery of America. The book is notable for 'the division of the earth into climatic zones, the uses of parallels and meridians, the determination of latitude, several methods for determining longitude including that of lunar distance, the use of trigonometry to determine distances, several types of map projections, and many other topics...' (Karrow).Apianus' work in its full-length form was first published in 1524; it first appeared in this popular format in Antwerp in 1532 or 1533. This is the second edition in this form, and the first of at least seven such editions produced in Italy in the sixteenth century.Alden, 'European Americana', 533/3; Harrisse (BAV), Add 100; JCB, I, 107; Van Ortroy , 84.

        Ian Hamilton's March

      Here is a superlative copy for collectors - as good as they come.  This is Churchill's fifth book and the second of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers. His daring escape made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career.  The publisher issued just 1533 copies of this first American edition, only printing (against 5003 British first edition, first printing copies).  The American edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine.  Offered here is a superlative, collector-grade example.  The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square with vivid, unfaded color and bright gilt.  We note only very slight wear at the spine ends and corners.  The contents are likewise exceptional - crisp, clean, bright, and tight.  We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks of any kind.  All maps and plans are present and perfectly preserved, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard.  The top edge gilt remains bright with only slight scuffing.  The fore and bottom edges remain clean.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.2, Woods/ICS A5(ca), Langworth p.61

        Ercole ed Anteo

      Bulino, 1533, datato e monogrammato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre, avanti l?indirizzo dell?editore Antonio Salamanca. Magnifica prova, particolarmente contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimi margini, tracce di colla al verso, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La composizione raffigura una delle fatiche di Ercole, che soffoca Anteo in presenza della Terra, raffigurata con la donna seduta. L?incisione, nonostante sia realizzata nel 1533, viene eseguita nello stile delle opere fiorentine del Raimondi del 1508-10; sebbene derivi da un disegno di Raffaello, è tradotta in maniera ?michelangiolesca?, ed è stilisticamente simile al successivo lavoro del Veneziano, Gli Arrampicatori, che deriva appunto da Michelangelo. Ex collezione Earl Spencer Althorp (Lugt 2341a). Engraving, 1533, dated and signed with monogram on lower centre plate. After a subject by Raphael. Example in the second state of three, before the address of Antonio Salamanca. Magnificent work, extremely clear, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to platemark of with thin margins, signs of glue on verso, in excellent condition. The composition depicts one of the twelve labours of Hercules, who suffocates Antaeus before the Earth, represented by a sitting woman. Although realized in 1533, the engraving shows the style of the Folrentine works of Raimondi (1508-10). Although it derives from a drawing of Rapahel, the style this works is close to Michelangelo?s.

      Bulino, 1533. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1533. A good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions. Shortly before 1520, several young artists in the immediate circle of Albercht Dürer began making remarkably small engravings that challenged the viewer with a world in miniature; a world of new secular subject and of unconventional interpretations of traditional themes. Because of the scale of their engravings these artists have long been saddled with the unflattering collective name the Little Masters. The core of the group consist in three Nuremberg artists, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham and Georg Pencz, Jacob Bink form Cologne and Heinrich Aldegrever from Soest. This engraving comes from an old collection and were pasted in XVIII century portofolio. Bartsch 78. Dim. 63x97.

        Conatuum praecipuorum theoriam parallelarum demonstrandi recensio qvam pvblico examini svnmittent Abrah. Gotthelf Kaestner et avctor Georgivs Simon Klv¨gel Hambvrgensis ...Göttingen: Schultz, 1763.

      Extremely rare first edition of one of the most influential works in the history of non-Euclidean geometry. "If one means by the creation of non-Euclidean geometry the recognition that there can be geometries alternative to Euclid's then Klügel and Lambert deserve the credit" (Kline, p. 869).<br/><br/> There is good evidence that the Parallel Postulate (that through any point not on a given straight line exactly one straight line can be drawn that does not intersect the given line) was considered even by Euclid to be less self-evident than the other axioms of Euclidean geometry. Attempts to deduce the Parallel Postulate from the other axioms began with the commentary of Proclus (published in 1533) and continued through to the eighteenth and even the nineteenth century. However, "... from the general want of success of these attempts, the conviction began to be formed in the second half of the eighteenth century that it would be necessary to admit the Euclidean postulate, or some other equivalent postulate, without proof. In Germany, where the writings upon the question followed closely upon each other, this conviction had already assumed a fairly definite form. We recognize it in A. G. Kästner, a well-known student of the theory of parallels, and in his pupil, G. S. Klügel, author of the valuable criticism of the most celebrated attempts to demonstrate the Fifth Postulate... In this work Klügel finds each of the proposed proofs insufficient and suggests the possibility of non-intersecting straight lines being divergent... He adds that the apparent contradiction which this presents is not the result of a rigorous proof, nor a consequence of the definitions of straight lines and curves, but rather something derived from experience and the judgement of our senses" (Bonola, pp. 50-51). <br/><br/> Born in Hamburg, Georg Simon Klügel (August 19, 1739 - August 1812) entered the University of Göttingen in 1760, where he initially studied theology, though he also took courses in mathematics. He soon came under the influence of Abraham Gotthelf Kästner (27 September 1719 - 20 June 1800), a Göttingen professor who was deeply interested in the Parallel Postulate and had discussed it at some length in his <i>Anfangsgründe der Mathematik</i> (1758). Kästner quickly recognized Klügel's talent for mathematics and persuaded him to devote himself exclusively to its study. At Kästner's suggestion Klügel took as the subject of his doctoral thesis a critical analysis of the attempts made thus far to prove the Parallel Postulate. Klügel had access to Kästner's impressive library of more than 7000 volumes (according to a catalogue of his library published in 1801), which contained virtually everything that had been written up to that time on the Parallel Postulate. The thesis, <i>Conatuum praecipuorum theoriam parallelarum demonstrandi recensio</i>, was defended on 20 August 1763. <br/><br/> Klügel's thesis criticized some thirty attempted proofs of the Parallel Postulate, organized as follows (we have indicated the authors and titles of the works in which the attempts are made, along with the sections of the text where Klügel considers them). Sections I, II and XV are devoted to general remarks. <br/><br/> §III Proclus, Posidonius, Ptolemy, in Euclid, <i>Elements</i> [Greek] (1533). <br/> §IV & V Girolamo Saccheri, <i>Euclides ab omni naevo vindicatus</i> (1733). <br/> §VI Christian August Hausen, <i>Elementa matheseos</i> (1734). <br/> §VII Nicola de Malezieu, <i>Élémens de Géométrie</i> (1722). <br/> §VIII Wenceslaus Karsten, <i>Mathesis theoretica elementaris</i> (1760). <br/> §VIIII Nasir-al-Din al-Tusi, printed version of a public lecture given by Wallis in Oxford in 1651, contained in John Wallis, <i>Opera mathematica</i>, Tom.

In this work, Saccheri denies the truth of the Parallel Postulate and draws a series of conclusions which, in retrospect, constitute many of the basic results of non-Euclidean geometry. Saccheri believed he had reached a contradiction, thus establishing the truth of the Parallel Postulate by <i>reductio ad absurdam</i>, but Klügel showed that he had done so by assuming certain properties of figures at infinite distance that are only known at finite distances. Despite its importance, Saccheri's work was not widely known, and it was largely via Klügel's thesis that its influence began to be felt. Johann Heinrich Lambert (1728-77) quotes Klügel's thesis in his important <i>Theorie der Parallellinien</i>, written in 1766 but not published until twenty years later, and probably learned of Saccheri's work from it. It is probable that Janos Bolyai learned of Saccheri's work from his father Farkas, who studied at Göttingen in 1796-8 and became interested in the parallel postulate under Kästner's influence; he will inevitably have been directed by Kästner to study Klügel's thesis. The other founder of non-Euclidean geometry, Nicolai Lobachevsky, Bonola (p. 92) speculates that he may also have learned about Saccheri's work via Klügel's thesis. Thus, Klügel's thesis provided the starting point for the most important developments in non-Euclidean geometry in the second half of the seventeenth and the first half of the eighteenth centuries. <br/><br/> NDB XII, p. 135; DSB VII 206-7 (Kästner) & 404-5 (Klügel).

      Woodcut printer&#39;s device on title (repeated on verso of final leaf, otherwise blank). 261, [9] pp. (lacking final leaf, a blank). Small 8vo, 17th cent. panelled calf (foot of upper joint & head of lower joint with short splits), fleurons in blind in each corner. Paris: C. Wechel, 1533. Second edition and a very fine copy, of one of Agricola&#39;s most important books which became a standard work on ancient weights and measures. It is "a valuable book of reference on the history of ancient measures...The book is also valuable to the student of Roman and Greek numerals, and of the various symbols of measures. Such works explain the origin of certain systems of measures employed before the metric system was developed, and of such symbols as are still used by apothecaries."-Smith, Rara Arithmetica, pp. 171-73-(who, like several other bibliographers, including the Hoovers, describes this in error as the first edition). Besides these subjects, Agricola treats the value of metals of all kinds and of money both in ancient and modern times. The first edition appeared in the same year at Basel. A fine copy bound after C.S. Apollinaris Sidonius&#39; Opera (Lyons: 1552). On the title of this work is the ownership inscription of Minims&#39;s convent at Chateaudun, dated 1652. &#10087; Darmstaedter, G. Agricola, pp. 71-74-"especially important for the historian of medicine." .

Title with woodcut printer's device. The first text-page framed with a broad woodcut border, many smaller and larger woodcut initials throughout. Internally a very fine and clean copy w. wide margins.. The monumental editio princeps of the "Elements" of Euclid, "the greatest mathematical textbook of all times", being the first printing of the original Greek text, including the first printing of Proclus' seminal commentary to the first book (the so-called "Herwagiana"). The present editio princeps constitutes one of the most important publications in the history of scientific (and philosophical) thought, and it profoundly influenced Renaissance, and in turn all modern, thought. The first printing of the original Greek text of the "Elements", which is edited by the famous Basel-professor of Greek Simon Gryneaus the elder, served as the basis for all later texts and translations of the "Elements" until the nineteenth century. Proclus's seminal commentary to the first book, which had never been printed before, is considered the earliest contribution to the philosophy of mathematics and "one of the most valuable documents in ancient philosophy" (Morrow, p. XXXII). It profoundly influenced Renaissance and modern readings of Euclid's Elements and is responsible for the role that this magnum opus came to play during the Renaissance. It is not until Proclus (ca. 410-485), the great Neoplatonist, applies Plato's manner of thinking to Greek geometry that it achieves completion as a real system. His view of mathematics as part of a larger system of thought was perfectly in tune with the currents of Renaissance thought, and with the commentary of Proclus, the Renaissance student of Euclid was carried beyond the ostensible boundaries of mathematics into the paths of cosmological and metaphysical speculation, paving the way for these fields in modern thought. But Proclus' commentary is not only of seminal importance to the antique and Renaissance interpretation of the work, it also provides us with invaluable information regarding geometers and the history of geometry prior to Euclid. "Its numerous references to the views of Euclid's predecessors, many of them otherwise unknown to us, render it an invaluable source for the history of science." (DSB, pp. 160-61). "These numerous and sometimes very extended references to opinions and accomplishments of his predecessors, taken together with the material rescued from Eudemus's early history of geometry, make Proclus' "Commentary" a priceless source of information regarding the geometry of the previous nine or ten centuries." (Morrow. p. XXVIII). -"Yet the value of the matter it contains regarding the foundations of mathematics and geometry in particular is even greater, though less widely recognized." (Morrow, p. XXXII). Proclus here explains the meaning of "Element" in geometry, he states the theoretical and pedagogical purposes of an elementary treatise, and offers a striking evaluation of the excellence of Euclid's own work. Futhermore, he famously defends pure mathematics, and geometry in particular, against its critics, and includes an important interpretation of the attitude of Plato, who was often used by these critics, against mathematics. Proclus furthermore raises questions that are absolutely fundamental to the understanding of both Plato and the science of Euclid, namely what the nature of the objects of mathematic enquiry is, and what the validity of the procedures used to handling them are. Posing these absolutely fundamental problems for the first time makes Proclus the first real philosopher of mathematics. "Proclus' treatise is the only systematic treatise that has come down to us from antiquity dealing with these questions". (Marrow, p. XXXIII). Proclus' commentary, which takes up the second part of the book, pp. 1-115, is also known as the "Herwagiana", named after the printer. Apart from the above-mentioned elements of the commentary, it also constitutes the first criticism of Euclid to question the "Parallel-axiom", - hereby paving the road to "NON-EUCLIDEAN GEOMETRY". Proclus was the first commentator to be very explicit about his objection to the Parallel axiom, as he refused to count it among the postulates. To justify his opinion he remarks that the converse (the sum of two angles is less than that of two right angles), is one of the theorems proved by Euclid (Book I. Prop. 17), and he thinks it impossible that a theorem, the converse of which can be proved, is not itself capable of proof. He says: "This (postulate) ought even to be struck out of the postulates altogether; for it is a theorem involving many difficulties, which Ptolemy, in a certain book, set himself to solve, and it requires for the demonstration of it a number of definitions as well as theorems, and the converse of it is actually proved by Euclid himself as a theorem." - Proclus' proof, taking up another axiom, was essentially correct, but he substituted one questionable axiom for another. (Se Bonola: Non-Euclidean Geometry). It goes without saying that Euclid's treatise itself, the "Elements" also directly influenced all scientific thought ever since its appearance. The exemplary role of geometry after Euclid enjoyed uncontested supremacy for centuries, until the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry introduced entirely new questions for mathematical thought and forced it to a new interpretation of its own logical structure."There are few books that have played a larger part in the thought and education of the Western world than Euclid's "Elements". For more than twenty centuries it has been used as an introduction to geometry, and only within the last hundred years has it begun to be supplemented, or supplanted, by more modern textbooks. "This wonderful book", writes Sir Thomas Heath, "with all its imperfections, which indeed are slight enough when account is taken of the date at which it appeared, is and will doubtless remain the greatest mathematical textbook of all times. Scarcely any other book except the Bible can have been circulated more widely the world over, or been more edited and studied"." (Morrow, pp. XXI-XXII)."The most famous source of Greek geometry is the monumental work of Euclid of Alexandria, called the "Elements" (around 300 B.C.). No other book of science had a comparable influence on the intellectual development of mankind. It was a treatise of geometry in thirteen books which included all the fundamental results of scientific geometry up to his time. Euclid did not claim for himself any particular discovery, he was merely a compiler. Yet, in view of the systematic arrangement of the subject matter and the exact logical procedure followed, we cannot doubt that he himself provided a large body of specific formulations and specific auxiliary theorems in his deductions. It is no longer possible to pass judgment on the authorship of much of this material; his book was meant as a textbook of geometry which paid attention to the material, while questions of priority did not enter the discussion" (Cornelius Lanczos in "Space through the Ages").

        De triangulis planis et sphaericis libri quinque : una cum tabulis sinuum, in quibus tota ipsorum triangulorum scientia ex primis fundamentis geometricarum ... continentur, quam multiplicem usum haec triangulorum doctrina omnibus ... adferat ... qui sana rerum intelligentia sunt instructi, in sequenti opere, quod complectitur ordinata astronomicorum et geometricorum problematum descriptionem (autore D. Santbech) ... deprehendere poterunt.

      Rare augmented edition of "the first systematic treatise on plane and spheric trigonometry to be published in Europe. Although it drew heavily on Arabic sources, those earlier treatises had been either lost or forgotten by 1533 when Regiomontanuss work was first printed. Among the notable contents of this work are the sine law and perhaps the first European application of algebra to trigonometry. Indeed with <i>De triangulis</i> trigonometry was established as an independent discipline. Regiomontanus' original purpose, however, had been to furnish astronomers with a mathematical technique essential for their studies, and in this <i>De triangulis</i> had a success perhaps greater than its author could have dreamed of. For in 1539 Georg Joachim Rheticus presented a copy of the work's 1533 edition as a gift to Copernicus. The great astronomer had already written the trigonometrically-based portion of his <i>De Revolutionibus</i> without knowledge of his predecessor's treatise. After reading the new book, Copernicus modified the presentation of several of his own indispensable theorems by inserting two leaves in the manuscript of the <i>De Revolutionibus</i>. Hence, Rheticus' remark that Regiomontanus began the reconstruction of astronomy that Copernicus completed takes on a fuller meaning" (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, pp. 99-100).<br/><br/> This edition is augmented by two early allied treatises: 'Tabula sinuum ad 6000000 partes per I. de Regiomonte computata' and 'Tractatus super propositiones Ptolemaei de sinubus et chordis' by Peurbach. These contain trigonometric tables etc., not present in the first edition. This edition is also immeasurably improved by the extended treatise of Santbech, appearing here for the first time, which contains a wealth of information about astronomy in the first years after Copernicus. It addresses the use of instruments for astronomical observations, and the solution of various problems in measurement making use of the doctrine of triangles given in the first part, as well as occasionally citing Copernicus (e.g. pp. 46, 52). <br/><br/> The writing of <i>De Triangulis</i> was completed by 1464 but it was first published in 1533 at Nuremberg by Johann Schöner. A second edition of this work, published in 1541, contained the first appearance of the two additional tracts by Regiomontanus and Peurbach included here (but not the Santbech) and appears to be so rare that even Zinner, who cites it (no. 1900), gives it the wrong date (Basel, 1546) and may never have seen a copy. <br/><br/> Adams R-281; see Stillwell, Awakening 218; Cockle, Military Books, p. 23; see PMM 40; DSB 11: 348-52 & 15:478..

      Basel, J. Hervagius, 1533. Folio. Beautiful manuscript-binding, made of large double manuscript leaf from the 13th century (?), double-columned in red and black/ brown ink. Initials and remains of larger red and blue illumination. The block has been professionally restored, renewing the vellum-cords and preserving the old covers.

Some annotations in old hand on title-page and some contemporary annotations in margins, mainly on the first ab. 25 leaves. Fine and in general clean, probably due partly to some gentle washing during the restoration stage.. Scarce and early edition (first issued in Venice 1497 and by Aldus 1499) of the author's famous "Mathesis" (forming the first part of the present edition). It has been called "the most comprehensive handbook of astrology to come down to us from antiquity" (Franz Boll). "Compiled as a handy guide for practioneers of the art, it best represents popular traditions of the previous four centuries (before ca. 350) and bears little resemblance to Ptolemy's quasi-scientific manual of astrology, the Quadripartitum...Firmicus' citations include the legendary Hermes, Orpheus, Abrahem, Petosiris, Nechepso, and Aesculapius". (DSB). Firmicius' work is called the Mathesis, and is a large work in eight books, written in Latin for Roman audience (middle 4th Century). It draws on many of the earliest Hellenistic sources and writings of the Hermetic tradition, and preserves much material not found elsewhere. From a practical astrological perspective, it is the largest single source of delineation text, treating of planets in houses, aspects, applications and separations of the Moon, decennials etc. Brunet II:1270. - Houzeau & Lancaster: 761. - Wellcome: 2308 (listing only the later edition from the same printer 1551)
