Agostino de MUSI detto "Agostino VENEZIANO" (Venezia 1490 ca. - Roma 1536/38)
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.

Heinrich ALDEGREVER (Paderborn, 1502; Soest, Westfalia, 1555?61)
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.

KLÜGEL, Georg Simon.
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 p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nel 1517 strinse amicizia con Pietro Bembo e Iacopo Sadoleto ma questo non impedi' che nei suoi confronti si scatenasse una forte campagna diffamatoria tanto che fu costretto a trasferirsi a Padova dove si spense a soli 32 anni.

AGRICOLA, Georg
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." .

REGIOMONTANUS, Johannes [Georg von PEUERBACH, Daniel SANTBECH
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.

With a large rinter's device ("Tempus" device 2 [see Renouard p. 104] and numerous woodcut initials.Contemporary calf (splitting and rubbed, the edges, foot and head of spine have been repaired, upper hinge torn) with some blind-stamping and gold embossed ownership mark on both covers.Second Colines edition, and simultaneously the 2nd edition of the zoological writings of Aristotle in this compactness and completeness. Schweiger and Hoffmann record a Colines edition in 1522 (apart of those in 1524 and 1533) but that one seems to be a mistake: verifiable in 1522 is only an edition with Aristotle's ethical works by Colines. With the issue of the collected works presented here Aristotle (384 - 322 B.C.) can be considered "The founder of biology and . first of all Zoologists". There is a wide variety of themes, as shown from the following titles: "The origination of animals", "the history [actually types] of animals", "The motion of animals.", "Anatomy ." The fact that Aristotle left the research into botany to his friend and pupil, Theophrast, resulted in the first three works of Aristotle generally being issued together with the works of Theophrast in the Incunabula editions and in numerous editions throughout the 16th century and only relatively later on were the zoological works of the philosopher issued together.

[CALLIGRAPHY] ARRIGHI, Ludovico degli
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, editi … [Click Below for Full Description]

EUCLIDES
[:in Greek]. Woodcut printer's device on title & verso of final leaf, first page of text with a woodcut decorative border, & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 6 p.l., 268; 115, [1] pp. Folio, 18th cent. mottled calf (upper blank margin of title -- 2.7 cm -- renewed & title carefully backed at an early date), double gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Basel: J. Herwagen, 1533. Editio princeps in Greek of Euclid's Elements, one of the great books in the history of the exact sciences. This is also the first Euclid to have the diagrams inset in the text. The Greek text was edited by Simon Grynaeus, professor of Greek at Basel University. Grynaeus used two manuscripts -- one sent by Lazarus Bayfius from Venice and the other supplied by John Claymond, president of Magdalen and later of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. The Elements occupy 268 pages, followed by 115 pages containing the four books of the commentary of Proclus on the first book of the Elements. This commentary "is of considerable value for the study of ancient Greek geometry because of the historical information which it contains, derived from the lost works of Eudemos...and Geminos."­Sarton, I, p. 403. Grynaeus dedicated this edition to Cuthbert Tunstall, Bishop of Durham and the author of the first English arithmetic. A fine crisp copy. Thomas-Stanford 7. .

Martyr, Peter:
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 E … [Click Below for Full Description]

FIRMICUS MATERNUS JUN., JULIUS - ASTROLOGY. - [THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE HANDBOOK OF ASTROLOGY]

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). <br><br>"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".

Winston S. Churchill
Longman's Green & Co. 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. This is the first American edition, only printing - one of just 1533 copies. The American edition, more scarce than the British, is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. Offered here is a superior, collector-worthy example. The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square with vivid color, bright gilt. Wear is minimal, with the only flaw of note being some minor dimpling of the cloth on the blank lower portion of the spine. The contents are superlative - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. No inscriptions. No age-toning. Bright top edge gilt. All maps and plans are present and pristine, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard.

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 American edition, more scarce than the British, is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear, particularly on the spine. Offered here is a very good copy. The red cloth binding is tight and square. Light wear is confined to extremities. The spine has a 1.5 inch vertical line of slight discoloration beginning at the lower part of the title and some mild blotchiness and soiling to the lower quarter of the spine. Exterior presentation is nonetheless quite respectable for this scarce and wear-prone edition. The contents are clean, bright, and entirely free of spotting. The top edge gilt remains bright, though lightly soiled and with a small oval stain. The tissue over the frontispiece is intact, as are all maps and plans. There is a decorative owner bookplate on the front pastedown and the name of this same owner inked on the ffep and dated "1903". Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.2, Woods/ICS A5(ca), Langworth p.61.

EUCLID
Basle: Johann Herwagen, 1533. EDITIO PRINCEPS. 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 inv … [Click Below for Full Description]
