        Vita Christi

      Lugduni [Lyon]: Coimpressa Sumptibus honorat. vir. Jacobi. q. Francisci de Giunta Florentini, 4 May 1536. Leather Bound. Very Good +. 6 x 8 1/4 inches. Begins at t(cross)ii, otherwise collates as complete compared with Registrum on last page. First page with large woodcut and printed in red and black. Some light dampstains to lower margins and last four to five lines of text. Printed in two column black letter. With numerous decorated initial capitals and miniatures. Occasional old ink in margins. Title and author in ink to foreedge. Two brands to top edge (an "S" and an "F" with a small circle on to horizontal line of the "F"). Bound in old brown calf over wooden boards, with darkened geometrical designs possibly made with heated instruments. Brass catches, clasps and corners, with brass clasps renewed. Professionally rebacked to style with four large raised bands. Provenance: Convent in Arequipa, Peru, title page existed during the 1884 war with Chile. Although virtually unknown to English speakers, Ludolph's Vita Christi was an extremely popular devotional work that was widely read during the fifteenth century, and which influenced St. Ignatius Loyola during his recuperation (1521-22), the influence of which may be seen in the similar structure, imagery and themes of his Spiritual Exercises. The miniatures provide valuable period detail and information (e.g., vestments and clothing, clerical and secular headgear, a rosary, hairstyles including tonsures) others are interesting for their theological information (e.g., a horned devil, the church as an ark). A very good copy of this rare work.

        ORGANUM VRANICUM. SEBASTIANVS MVNSTERVS HABES IN HOC LIBRO, AMICE LECTOR, EXPLICATAS THEORICAS OMNIVM PLANETARU

      Basel: Henricvm Petrvm, [1536].. [8],70,[36]pp., including fourteen working volvelles (four in pen-and-ink facsimile). [bound with:] Finé, Oronce: ORONTII FINEI DELPHINATIS, REGII MATHEMATICARVM PROFESSORIS QVADRANS ASTROLABICVS, OMNIBUS EUROPÆ REGIONIBUS INSERUIES: EX RECENTI & EMEDATA IPSIUS AUTHORIS RECOGNITIONE IN AMPLIORÉ, AC LONGE FIDELIOREM REDACTUS DESCRIPTIONEM. Paris: Simonem Colinæum, 1534. 18 leaves. Folio. Later calf, ornate blind tooled covers, gilt-lettered spine. Moderately rubbed. Front board detached. Old bookplate and binder's label on front pastedown. Some light dampstaining to inner margin of first few leaves, one leaf neatly repaired. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. Two primary works of early astronomy and mathematics. The first, by Sebastian Munster, author of the celebrated COSMOGRAPHIA UNIVERSALIS of 1544, is especially notable for its remarkably clean and operable original volvelles. His inclusion of numerous volvelles (which track the movements of the planets through the solar system) has made his text one of the primary sources for the study of "dialing" in the 16th century. Munster previously employed volvelles in his 1525 INSTRUMENT OF THE SUNS, though here he makes more ample use of them. The text examines the movement of the planets, a popular subject of the time due to the demand to improve navigation techniques. It is extremely rare for volvelles to survive in such pristine condition, making this copy highly desirable. The second text, by Oronce Finé, is the second edition, after the first of 1527. This work is Finé's first treatment of what Karrow calls a "universal" quadrant, an essential component of astronomy during Finé's lifetime. Though Finé is best known for his work on spheres, all of his writings demonstrate his command of contemporary mathematical theory and are evidence of his station as one of France's leading 16th-century mathematicians. Two astronomical and mathematical treatises by leading luminaries of their day, one with lovely volvelles, both fueled by the demands of the art of navigation and the race to the New World.

        OPERA DI AGRICOLTURA. Ne la qual si contiene a che modi si debbe coltiuar la terra: seminare, inserire li alberi, gouernar gli giardini e li horti: la proprietà de tutti i frutti & herbe: la natura de tutti gli animali: & uccelli...

(mm. 152 x 98), p. pergam. coeva (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso, cc.nn. 392, cornice figurata al frontesp., con bella xilografia a p. pag. al verso della terza carta; ornato da grandi iniz. figur. a vignetta inc. su legno. Di questo celebre trattato, che ebbe numerosiss. edizioni a partire dal XV secolo, cosi' precisa Gamba,374: "Il Crescenzio scrisse quest'opera in latino tra il 1307 e il 1311, ed è stata opinione di Leonardo Salviati, che'l volgarizzamento siasi fatto verso il 1350. Egli notò che dee riguardarsi come una delle principali scritture del volgar nostro, si' per li nomi specialissimi degli affari della villa, e talora anche di astrologia e di medicina e di altre arti, e si' perchè in genere di buone voci e di pura lingua è ripiena..". Cfr. anche Sander,I,2240: ?Page du titre, encadrement orné à la grotesque; dans le haut, le chat des Sessa. Bois de page, portrait de l?auteur assis in cathedra? - Ceresoli, p. 184. Esemplare corto del margine sup., peraltro ben conservato.

        Ptolomaei Planisphaerium. Jordani Planisphaerium. Federici Commandini Urbinatis in Ptolemaei Planisphaerium Commentarius. In quo universa Scenographices ratio quam brevissime traditur, ac demonstrationibus confirmatur.Venice: Aldus (Paolo Manuzio), 1558.

      First edition of Commandino's commentary. The Greek text of this writing by Ptolemy on stereographic projection is lost, a Latin version appeared in Basel in 1536, but this is the first separate and best edition, translated from the Arabic and edited by Commandino with his commentary. The 'Planisphaerium' concerns the stereographic projection of the celestial sphere on a plane with the south celestial pole at the center, a technique which Ptolemy used for mapping points in the heavens on the plane of the equator. In working with this projection and conic sections, Commandino noticed that conic sections can be considered sections in visual cones or perspective images. This inspired him to include in his work a study of perspective which occupies the first nineteen leaves of his commentary, and represents one of the earliest mathematical formulations of a method already widely employed by artists. (For a detailed account of this work see Andersen's The Geometry of an Art, pp.138-145). Houzeau & Lancaster 769; Riccardi I, 360.1; Adams P-2242; Sarton I, 277 and II, 616; Renouard 173.4; STC 543.. Two parts bound in one volume (as issued). Small 4to: 211 x 156 mm. Contemporary limp vellum. ff. 3, (1:blank), 37, (1:printers device); 28. [complete]
