        Libri Quinque de Mensuris & Ponderibus: in quibus pleraque à Budaeo & Portio parum animadversa diligenter excutiuntur

      Woodcut printer'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'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' Opera (Lyons: 1552). On the title of this work is the ownership inscription of Minims's convent at Chateaudun, dated 1652. ❧ Darmstaedter, G. Agricola, pp. 71-74-"especially important for the historian of medicine." .

        [Greek:] Elementa geometriae

      Johann Herwagen With woodcut device on title and colophon, decorated woodcut border to first page of text and numerous woodcut diagrams. Contemporary English calf, neatly rebacked, remains of ties, later endpapers. A very good copy. Editio princeps of Euclid's Elements and of the important commentary by Proclus on the first book. The first printing of Euclid in 1482 was a Latin translation from an Arabic manuscript, but the original Greek text did not appear for a further half-century. The Greek text was edited by Simon Grynaeus, a German Protestant theologian and philologist. This edition is also important for the innovation of geometrical diagrams within the text, rather than in the margins as had been the case with the earlier printed editions. The commentary by the Neoplatonist mathematician and philosopher Proclus on the first book of the Elements is the earliest extant criticism of Euclid's fifth postulate on the existence of parallel lines, the study of which led, after a further fifteen hundred years of effort, to the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry by Gauss, Bolyai and Lobachevsky. It is also the first printing of the earliest work on the philosophy of mathematics. "Because of his interest in the principles underlying mathematical thought and their relation to ultimate philosophical principles, Proclus' commentary is a notable - and also the earliest - contribution to the philosophy of mathematics. Its numerous references to the views of Euclid's predecessors and successors, many of them otherwise unknown to us, render it an invaluable source for the history of science" (DSB).

        STOICHEION BIBL. IE' EK TON THEONOS SYNOUSION. Eis tou autou to proton, exegematon Proklou bibl. d. (Greek). (Elementa geometriae). 1533.

      Basel, Johannes Herwegen, 1533. Folio. (323x220 cm). Cont. full blind-tooled calf with a broad border of ornamental rolls with corner-pieces, inside which an oblique blind-tooled parallelogram and a rectangular tooled decoration, also with corner-pieces. Professionally rebacked in old style, w. seven raised bands blindstamped ornamentations to all compartments. Corners professionally and neatly restored. (12), 268; 115, (1) pp. incl. last page with large woodcut printer's device. Numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. The last page of Grynaeus' foreword with a half-page note on Euclid, Proclus and Grynaeus in 18th century hand. One contemporary marginal note. First 3 leaves with faint finger-soiling to lower right corner. The text framed throughout by a decorative but faint ink-border. Verso of title-page with 2 small stamps. 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. (Tractatus Georgii Peurbachii super propositiones Ptolomaei de sinubus et chrodis) omnia nunc simul in lucem edita in gratiam matheseos studiosorum per Danielem Santbech.Basel: Heinrich Petri & Peter Perna, 1561.

      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.. Folio (), pp [xvi] 146 [38]; [20] 294 [2]. Woodcut initials and numerous woodcut diagrams in text. Contemporary vellum (hinge of title and final leaf mended, some light occasional browning)

        Astronomicon Lib. VIII. per Nicolavum Prucknerum Astrologum nuper ab innumetis mendis uindicati.....Claudii Ptolemaei.....Quadrupartitum vocant, Lib. IIII......Ex Arabicus et Chaldeis.... (3 Parts).

      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. (16),244,143,(89) pp. Last page with woodcut printer's device. Some woodcuts in the text and fine wood-cut initials throughout. 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)
