COMMANDINO, Federico. [Ptolemy, Ptolemaeus]
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]

Charles V, Emperor
Splendid early and large illuminated Spanish Grant of Arms on vellum, from Carlos V, 1536. October, 1536. Valladolid. In large folio (575 mm x 417 mm). 1 ff. Margins extended for appropriate framing expertly done; some scratching and rubbing, signatures at bottom slightly faded, else perfect. Large illuminated document on vellum, in fine rotunda, 55 lines plus headline. Early and handsome example of early 16th century Spanish illumination and grant of arms; signed by the Emperor and including two large miniatures. Headed with ?D O N   C A R L O S?. Large initial ?D? (c70 mm x 70 mm) including the Imperial Spanish Royal Coat of Arms; 9 illuminated initials in blue and red; and a large coat of arms in a central block at the centre of the document. All painted in brilliant colours. Text is surrounded by a wide border to top and lateral margins, embodying interlacing designs, flora and fauna, with a golden background. The border and heraldic decoration are splendid examples of the Hispano-Flemish school of miniature painting. The document begins with ?Don Carlos V Por la divina clemencia Emperador de los Romanos Augusto Rey de Alemania Doña Juana su madre y el mismo Don Carlos por la gracia de Dios Reyes de Castilla, de Leon de Aragon, de las Dos Sicilias de Jerusalem...?, thus sharing the power with his mother, Doña Juana. The grant is extended to Gregorio de Castro ?vezino de la Abadia de Burgos?. The last part of the document, after explaining who the grantee is, describes the Coat of Arms given to the family. Castro is a long-standing family name of Spain, apparently descen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Munster, Sebastian:
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 fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ludolphi de Saxony [Ludolph of Saxony]
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 excised 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).

Paris: Robert Estienne, 1536. FIRST EDITION OF "De re Navali," First Printing of this collection. This is the first of just five illustrated books published by Robert Estienne, offered here in a handsome and historically important contemporary English binding. Included in the present volume are Baïf's monograph on ancient ships, the author's treatise on Roman dress, and his work on early vases and receptacles, as well as an early printing of the first published monograph on colors, "De Coloribus" by Antonio Telesio (1482-1534), later reprinted in Goethe's "Farbenlehre." A distinguished humanist and diplomat who was well known in his own time for translations of the Greek dramatists, Baïf (1485-1547) is today best remembered for the works contained in this collection. The woodcuts, which include 20 of early ships, may have been produced by the atelier of Geoffroy Tory, since five of them are signed with the Lorraine cross (Tory was the Royal printer of France, appointed by François I, whose titles included Duke of Lorraine). Our volume appears here in a lovely 16th century decorative binding that certainly is English and seems in design and execution similar to the work of the artist whom Nixon dubbed the "Dudley Binder," for the work he did for Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Our binding's central panel, with its oval medallion and ornate cornerpieces, is typical of the Dudley Binder's work (see, for example, items #16 and 17 in Nixon's "Five Centuries" and Foot's "Davis Gift," #43).. 216 x 140 mm.
