Der im italienischen Sassoferrato geborene Verfasser (um 1313-1357) war einer der bedeutendsten Rechtslehrer des Mittelalters. Er gehörte zur Richtung der Kommentatoren. Charakteristisch für sein Ansehen bei den späteren Juristen ist der Satz nemo bonus iurista nisi bartolista (niemand ist ein guter Jurist, wenn er nicht Bartolist [Anhänger des Bartolus] ist). Bartolus lehrte in Pisa und Perugia. Es war nicht etwas ganz Anderes, was er unternahm, in Vergleichung mit seinen Vorgängern, aber er that es besser, als die Meisten unter ihnen (Savigny, Geschichte des römischen Rechts im Mittelalter VI, 157). Dass man Bartolus zeitweise als den größten Juristen schlechthin ansah, zeigt sich auch darin, dass im italienischen Theater der Name Bartolo für die Figur des Juristen (Figur des Dottore in der Commedia dell'Arte) üblich wurde. - Einband etw. beschabt u. fleckig.

        Elementorum Geometricorum. Lib. XV. Cum Expositione Theonis in Priores XIII à Bartholomaeo Veneto Latinitate donata, Campani in omnes, & Hypsiclis Alexandrini in duos postremos. His adjecta sunt Phaenomena, Catoptrica & Optica, deinde Protheoria Marini & Data, postremum vero, Opusculum De Levi & Ponderoso, hactenus non visum, eiusdem autoris

      Woodcut printer's device on title & another on verso of last leaf. Many woodcut diagrams throughout and numerous fine & large woodcut initials. 4 p.l., 587, [1] pp. Folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over beveled wooden boards (minor worming at beginning, touching some letters), orig. clasps (one defective) and catches, 19th-cent. morocco lettering pieces on spine. Basel: J. Herwagen, 1537. First Basel edition; this is the first complete assemblage of the Euclidean texts, with printings of both Campanus of Navara's and Bartolomeo Zamberti's versions. It also contains the new Preface by Philipp Melanchthon which in many copies, according to Thomas-Stanford, was removed by the censor. This Herwagen edition contains all the major Euclidean texts: the Elements, Phaenomena, Catoptrica, Data, and the Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso, which appears here for the first time. The version of Books I-XV of the Elements by Campanus of Navara, (d. 1296) was the one generally used in the later Middle Ages and was employed in the first edition of 1482. It was frequently reprinted (at least 14 times in the 15th and 16th centuries). Our edition also contains the version of Bartolomeo Zamberti (b. ca. 1473). "Zamberti was most conscious of the advantages he believed to accrue from his working from a Greek text. This enabled him, he claimed, to add things hitherto missing and properly to arrange and prove again much found in the version of Campanus."-D.S.B., IV, p. 448. Also included is the first printing of the Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso. "No work by Euclid on mechanics is extant in Greek, nor is he credited with any mechanical works by ancient writers. According to Arabic sources, however, he wrote a Book on the Heavy and the Light, and when Hervagius was about to publish his 1537 edition there was brought to him a mutilated fragment, De levi et ponderoso, which he included as one of Euclid's works…It is the most precise exposition that we possess of the Aristotelian dynamics of freely moving bodies."-D.S.B., IV, p. 431. "Applies geometric methods of proof to theorems relative to freely falling bodies. Possibly a fragment of the original text. Authenticity questioned, but inconclusively. A translation presumably based upon an Arabic version."-Stillwell, The Awakening Interest in Science during the First Century of Printing 1450-1550, 750. A fine copy from the Oettingen-Wallerstein library with their stamp on title-page. Modern bookplates of H. Staigmüller and David L. DiLaura. ? Thomas-Stanford 9.

        Opuscula complura de temporum ratione diligenter castigata. Cologne, Johannes Prael for Peter Quentel, May 1537.

      1537. Folio (215 x 310 mm). (14), 18, (6), CXXVI, (4) ff. With 35 woodcuts in the text, initials, and printer's device on recto of final leaf. Contemp. vellum. First edition of Beda's collected writings on historical and astronomical chronology. The section "On the Reckoning of Time" (De temporum ratione) includes an introduction to the traditional ancient and medieval view of the cosmos, including an explanation of how the spherical earth influenced the changing length of daylight, of how the seasonal motion of the sun and moon influenced the changing appearance of the new moon at evening twilight, and a quantitative relation between the changes of the tides at a given place and the daily motion of the moon. "Ce volume contient les principaux traités de l'auteur sur le calendrier" (Houzeau/L.). The woodcut world map on d1, evidently redrawn from those of Petrus de Alliaco and Ambrosius Macrobius (Shirley 12 & 13), shows the four continents of the old world surrounded by water, the southern hemisphere labeled as "nobis incognita frigida". - Very slightly browned; title page shows insignificant fingerstaining; otherwise an excellent copy with a very few contemporary marginalia. VD 16, B 1440. Zinner 1657. Houzeau/L. 1074.

        Les Faictz et dictz de feu de bonne memoire maistre Jehan Molinet contenans plusieurs beaufx traitez oraisons et champs royaulx comme lon pourra facillement trouver par la table qui sensuit.

      On les vends à Paris en la rue Saint-Jacques à l'ensigne de la fleur de Lys d'or chez Jehan Petit Inconnu 1537 Très rare seconde édition des oeuvres de Jean Molinet, ayant appartenue dans l'ordre aux bibliophiles suivant : Henri Bordes, Guy Pellion et Frédéric Lachèvre portant les trois ex-libris ainsi que le fer de F. Lachèvre au premier plat, conservé dans une reliure plein maroquin rouge probablement exécuté à la fin du XVIII° siècle. Disciple de Georges Chastellain, Molinet fut le dernier des réthoriqueurs de la cour de Bourgogne, le maître de Jean Lemaire de Belges et l'ami de Guillaume Crétin. Imprimée en caractères gothiques, le titre en rouge et noir, c'est la première édition de ce format, l'originale ayant paru en 1531 dans le format in-folio. Elle fut partagée entre six grands libraires de l'époque. Viollet-le-Duc, dans sa Bibliothèque poétique (1843, p. 131), analyse longuement et sévèrement la virtuosité de Molinet qui, dit-il, était persuadé que la poésie n'est rien autre chose que de la difficulté vaincue. Parmi les nombreuses pièces contenues dans ce volume, mentionnons La Recollection des merveilleuses histoires advenues en nostre temps, commencée par G. Chastelain et continuée par Molinet. Elle contient, en 140 huitains, tous les événements historiques qui eurent lieu de 1428 à 1498, c'est-à-dire jusqu'à la mort de Charles VIII. Les premières strophes sont consacrées à l'histoire de Jeanne d'Arc. Caractères gothiques, lettres ornées, titre imprimé en rouge et noir.

        Castigatissimi Annali con la loro copiosa tavola della Eccelsa et Ill.ma Republ. di Genoa, da fideli et approvati scrittori accuratamente racolti..Opera certamente molto laudevole, a Studiosi assai comoda..e utilissima. Genoa, M.D.XXXVII. (In fine:) Per Antonio Bellono Taurinense, 1537

      Bellone Ant, 1537. in - folio, ff. (12), CCLXXXII, carattere tondo, titolo in rosso e nero con silografia raffigurante uno scudo con le armi di Genova ''aurea libertas vexillum Genue'' sostenato da due angeli alati. Al verso del foglio altra silogr. di San Giorgio e il drago (mm.125x97). Grandi e piccoli capilettera ornati. Elegante legatura moderna in pieno marocchno marrone, decorata in oro ad imitazione delle legature cinquecentesche ''Apollo e Pegaso'' di Canevari con figura emblematica impressa in ovale al centro dei due piatti. Prima edizione di quest'opera rara, fondamentale sulla storia di Genova e della regione dall'origine al 1527. Nel I libro, dopo una breve descrizione della Liguria, si forniscono notizie specifiche su Nizza, Ventimiglia, le valli di Marro e Diano, Pieve di Teco, Albenga, Finale, Noli, Savona e Val Polcevera. Interessante sotto l'anno 1493 (f. 249 r.) il passaggio che parla di ''Christoforo Colombo Genovese inventore della navigatione al mondo novo''. Volume accuratamente impresso, come si legge nel colophon, ''con diligencia, e opera del nobile Laurentio Lomellino Sorba'' e stampata da ''Antonio Bellono Taurinense''. Buon esemplare, con foglio di titolo accuratamente rimarginato, lievissima uniforme arrossatura nella parte finale. (Ex - libris Michel Wittock).

        Il Vendemiatore. Manoscritto (metà XVII secolo).

      1537. in - 8 (mm 196x150), ff. 44 n.n., vergati in bella e chiara su entrambe le facciate. Legatura coeva in pergamena rigida, titolo manoscritto lungo il dorso. Poemetto erotico in ottava rima di tono popolaresco, pubblicato nel 1537 col titolo ''Stanze di coltura sopra gli horti delle donne'' e messo all'Indice in quello stesso anno: questo favorì indubbiamente una incredibile proliferazione di copie manoscritte non autorizzate, come non autorizzata e per di più manipolata fu la princeps napoletana del 1534. Questo manoscritto si compone da 171 ottave, come gli esemplari a stampa e manoscritti più antichi, a differenza di edizioni successive, che ne hanno 183. Il vendemmiatore, dall'alto di un olmo, si rivolge alle donne giovani e belle invitandole a godere i piaceri dell'amore, sotto la metafora della coltivazione degli orti. Luigi Tansillo (Venosa, Napoli, ca. 1510 - 1568) fu uno dei più validi poeti italiani del XVI sec., da alcuni considerato il creatore del dramma pastorale; prima ''Il vendemmiatore'' (1534) e poi (1550) tutte le sue opere furono messe all'Indice; per riconquistare il favore della Chiesa compose il poema sacro ''Le lagrime di San Pietro''. Al contropiatto anteriore ex libris Josephi Maria Parascandolo.

      1537. in - 4, ff. 114 n.n. (privo del f. G7), bellissima legatura coeva parlante in marocchino granata, piatti ornati da doppia cornice dorata con quattro motivi floreali agli angoli, all'interno, due cornici concentriche recanti l'iscrizione latina, dall'oscuro significato, impressa in capitali oro: ''Sic.o.sic frontem cingat tibi purpura dives''. Ex libris manoscritto al piatto anteriore, tagli dorati e cesellati, dorso abilmente rifatto. Prima edizione italiana delle poesie in vari metri (Silve, Epigrammi) cui segue il ''De Imitatione'' di Giovanni Battista Giraldi Cinthio, impressa da Francesco Rosso, attivo a Ferrara tra il 1521 ed il 1576. Curioso notare che per la prima volta in quest'opera all'interno dell'Epigramma dedicato ''Ad Ioannem Stanchiarum'' l'a. spieghi l'origine dell'epiteto ''Cynthius'' da lui scelto per amore di una donna. L'esemplare seppur privo di un foglio e con alcuni difetti (leggera macchia d'umido nel margine esterno bianco di circa metà del volume, piccolo lavoro di tarlo nel margine superiore interno bianco) risulta particolarmente prezioso per l'inusuale legatura. L'oscura frase (''così come .. così la preziosa porpora ti cinga la fronte'') doveva essere il motto di un dotto collezionista dell'epoca, probabilmente di origine ferrarese.

        Canti XI composti dal Bandello de le Lodi de la S.Lucrezia Gonzaga di Gazuolo, e del vero amore, col tempio di pudicitia, e con altre cose per dentro poeticamente descritte. (Segue:) Le Tre Parche da esso Bandello cantate.. Manoscritto cartaceo, Venezia, fine XVII secolo

      1537. mm 150x210, ff. 269, elegantemente vergati in inchiostro bruno, in bella e ordinata grafia. Completo e perfettamente conservato, in semplice legatura coeva di cartoncino grigio. Rime scritte nel 1537 - 1538 dal Bandello quando divenne precettore di Lucrezia Gonzaga, ove ne celebra la bellezza e la virtù. Le "Tre Parche" sono capitoli in terza rima per la nascita di Giano, primogenito di Caterina Fregoso. La sola edizione a stampa di questi poemi di Bandello fu quella di Agens del 1545 ("Si stampavano in Guienna ne la città di Agen per Antonio Reboglio", 202 ff. a stampa). Estremamente raro, fu il primo libro stampato nella città di Agens (STC French Books, p.69). Matteo Bandello, il più illustre scrittore piemontese del Rinascimento (n. a Castelnuovo Scrivia nel 1485), ebbe una vita assai travagliata, iniziata con una vocazione religiosa ben presto spentasi. Ebbe subito irrequieti rapporti mondani, politici e letterari con potenti signori ed illustri dame del tempo. Nel presente codice gli errori del testo a stampa furono corretti. La provenienza è indicata sul primo foglio bianco: "copia fatta dall'esemplare esistente nella Libreria dei PP. Domenicani di Venezia sulle Zattere: Le postille marginali son copiate dalle originali di mano del A. Zeni sull'esemplare stesso". Altre provenienze del presente ms. sono "Prof. Federico Patetta ? Gianfranco Galeani Napione".

      Basel: Heinrich Peter [Heinrich Petri], 1537. VERY RARE. First edition in German. With 66 fine and impressive large woodcuts, woodcut initials throughout. Small Folio, bound in an early vellum manuscript leaf, likely from an antiphonal written in black and ruled in red, page edges died red. [vii], 157 pp. A handsome copy, the text very clean and fresh, some very minor marginal wormholes. SEBASTIAN MÃœNSTER'S IMPORTANT WORK ON SUNDIALS AND HOROLOGY, illustrated with many very impressive woodcuts, some attributed to Holbein the Younger. The work displays not only Münster's mathematical and scientific abilities but also those of a master-craftsman. The many fine woodcuts include sundials, quadrants and various other measuring devices, some of which are attributed to Hans Holbein the Younger. The work was original published in Latin in 1531. This edition appeared several years prior to Muenster's famed 'Cosmographia' and is far scarcer.

      Jehan André, Paris 1537 - UNRECORDED NEW AND EXPANDING EDITION. Folio. ff. [10] CXCIX. Lettre bâtarde, t-p in red and black, white on black floriated initials plus one large criblé and one grotesque. Ms ex-libris on upper margin of t-p in English hand " a Joanne Prentt", recording the book's purchase in Paris in 1539 and of "Nicolai Von Bodeck Dantzigi Anno 1652"in lower margin, C19 armorial bookplate of a Marquis on pastedown. A very good clean copy in C17 mottled calf, upper joint cracked at head. Spine gilt in compartments, red morocco lettering piece,edges speckled red, old Quaritch collation note in pencil at end. Unrecorded new and expanded edition of Jean Bouchet's most important work continued up to 1537, though similar printings can be found by Richard du Hamel, Jehan Macé, Sergent Pierre, Guilaume le Bret and A Girault. Jean Bouchet (1476-1555(?)) was a public prosecutor at Poitiers and writer of the «Grand rhétoriqueurs », a literary movement supported by Louis XII's court. Jean d'Auton, abbé d'Angle and Louis XII's historiographer and poet, taught him poetry and instilled in him the taste for history. Bouchet was close to the important La Tremoille family and became a member of Anne of Brittany's court at the request of the Duchess de la Tremoille, Gabrielle of Bourbon. However he is really remembered now more as a historian than as a poet. After eight years of research in all Poitou and having recorded Louis II La Tremoille's recollections of the reigns of Charles VIII, Louis XII and Francois the First, he published the first version of his "Annales d'Acquitaine", the first historical work about a French province. It is a valuable text for the history of Aquitaine and of France but for English history as well, with their long involvement with the Duchy of Guyenne. The author continued his work until the end of his long life in 1557, the last corrected edition was published the day after his death. It seems that booksellers often changed the t-p but the colophon, collation and the printing date stayed/are the same. In these editions the last leaf is often cancelled, maybe to conceal the device of another printer. The present edition was unauthorized and the addition up to 1537 were not by Bouchet, who warned his readers against them in the fourth edition of 1545. " « Au commancement de l'an mil cinq cent trente cinq, les présentes Annales d'Aquitaine furent imprimées a Poictiers pour la troysicsme foys. Depuis et l'an mil cinq cents quarante, aultre imprimeur que le mien, les a imprimées a Paris pour la quatriesme fois ; et continue mon histoire sans moy, iusques audict an mil cinq cents quarante en mon nom : qui est crime de faulx, me supposant contre vérité ce qu'ils ont continue estre de mon ouurage, combien que ce soyent choses triuiales et non sentans l'histoire. » Nicklas Von Bodeck was probably the mayor of Dantzig between (1664-1675) and author of "Sehnliche Klage des Nicolai von Bodeck iiber dessen Tochter Barbara. Danzig 1653 "and "Auf das Ehrenfest des Nicolaus von Bodeck und Coustantia Giesen. Danzig 1648". Sadly we have not located John Prentt.

        Zodiacus vitae, hoc est, de hominis vita, studio ac miribus optime instituendis Libri XII.. opus mire eruditum, planeq(ue) Philosophicum: nunc denuo longe quam antea cum emendatius, tum diligenter excusum.

      [Robert Winter] 1537 settembre In 8vo (cm 15,5), legatura coeva in piena pelle con ricche decorazioni floreali impresse a secco, dorso a tre nervi (porzione inferiore del dorso abilmente restaurata, mancano i legacci), pp. (88), 387, (1 bianca). Mancano le ultime 2 carte bianche. Antiche firme di appartenenza al titolo e numerose sottolineature e annotazioni, sia nel margine che sul risguardo posteriore (probabilmente una copia di studio). Leggere fioriture, qualche lieve alone marginale, ma ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE DATATA e prima edizione fuori dall'Italia, dove fu stampata la prima ed unica volta da Bernardino dei Vitali a Venezia senza data (con ogni probabilità  nella seconda metà  del 1536). L'opera, dedicata a Ercole II d'Este, fu composta fra il 1520 e il 1534 e ottenne l'imprimatur dalle autorità  veneziane nel febbraio del '35. Dopo la morte del Palingenio, che avvenne sicuramente prima del '51 quando Lilio Gregorio Giraldi pubblicò i suoi Dialogi duo de poetis nostrorum temporum, nei quali a p. 95 fa menzione dell'esumazione e del rogo del corpo del Palingenio «ob impietatis crimen», lo Zodiacus Vitae fu dichiarato eretico e inserito nell'Index del 1558 a causa dell'empietà  delle dottrine e dell'aspra critica del clero. Per questo motivo il poema ebbe molto successo nei paesi protestanti, mentre in Italia fu letto solo da pochi liberi pensatori come Giordano Bruno. Esso andò incontro a ben sessanta edizioni e a numerose traduzioni: tra queste la versione inglese realizzata fra il 1560 e il 1565 da Banabe Googe divenne ben presto un testo scolastico dell'età  elisabettiana.Lo Zodiacus Vitae, un poema didattico in esametri lungo circa diecimila versi, si divide in dodici libri, ciascuno dei quali porta il nome di un segno dello zodiaco. Esso sintetizza e si rifa a diverse filosofie, spaziando dal Neoplatonismo a Lucrezio, da Ficino all'Ermetismo, ed è rimarchevole non solo come prodotto del pensiero italiano nell'età  della Riforma, ma anche per le sue qualità  poetiche.Il motivo principale del trattato è il raggiungimento della virtù: la bontà  è superiore al sapere, ma bisogna aspirare a possedere entrambe, e il "summum bonum"? non si identifica col possesso di ricchezze. Il libro III introduce la figura di Epicuro come avvocato del Piacere, contro cui l'autore scaglia i suoi strali, mostrando le male conseguenze che comporta. Col libro IV l'argomento principale diventa l'amore e il comportamento civile in generale. Il libro V tratta invece della vera felicità  e della natura di Dio. Nel VI il poeta si confronta con la morte, la quale è un qualcosa che non va temuto, ma piuttosto accolto con benevolenza. A partire dal libro VII Palingenio sposta il suo interesse verso la contemplazione delle cose celesti, parla della natura dell'universo e affronta temi come il fato, il libero arbitrio e la divina provvidenza. Nel libro IX il poeta si eleva al di sopra delle cose terrene e dimostra come il male si generi dall'errore e dall'ignoranza umana. Il libro X riguarda la preparazione della mente alla contemplazione delle cose celesti ed discute della pietra filosofale, la cui scoperta può verificarsi solo grazie ad un atto di necromanzia. Nel libro XI Palingenio descrive minuziosamente il cielo secondo il sistema tolemaico e discute diverse teorie sull'origine e lo sviluppo dell'universo. Infine il libro XII conclude l'opera con la visione della vita spirituale al di là  del cielo, alla quale solo pochi possono aspirare (cfr. F.S. Ryle, Fate, Free Will and Providence in the 'Zodiacus Vitae' of Marcello Palingenio Stellato, in: "L'uomo e la natura nel Rinascimento"?, Milano, 1996, pp. 209 - 226).I primi filosofi che presero seriamente in considerazione questo poema furono G.C. Scaligero nelle sue Poetices (1561) e Giordano Bruno nel libro VIII del suo Immenso (1591), dove egli discute le idee cosmologiche del Palingenio, mentre alcuni passaggi di quest'opera risultano essere delle vere e proprie parafrasi di parti dello Zodiacus Vitae (cfr. L. Keller, Palingène, Ronsard et Du Bartas, Bern, 1974, pp. 10 - 11).J. Facciolati nelle sue Epistolae latinae (Padova, 1785) sostiene che il nome Marcello Palingenio non sia altro che l'anagramma di Pier Angelo Manzolli, cognome affatto comune nella Ferrara di quel tempo. Stellato deriverebbe invece dal distretto chiamato La Stellata vicino Bondeno, una ventina di chilometri a nord - ovest della capitale estense. Riferisce inoltre che il Palingenio visse per un certo periodo a Roma, che ebbe rapporti con il circolo eterodosso di Renata di Francia a Ferrara e che praticò la medicina nei dintorni di Rimini.Tuttavia oggi si considera più probabile che il Manzolli fosse originario di Napoli, dal momento che l'imprimatur dello Zodiacus Vitae nomina «Marcellus Stellatus Neapolitanus». Oltre all'anagramma, egli utilizza anche un acronimo ad apertura del poema, in cui le lettere inziali dei primi ventinove versi formano la sua firma, «Marseilles Palingenius Stellatus» (cfr. F. Bacchelli, Note per un inquadramento biografico di Marcello Palingenio Stellato, in: "Rinascimento"?, 2 / XXV, 1985, pp. 275 - 292).VD - 16, M - 852. G.

        De Natura Stirpium Libri Tres

      in officina Frobeniana, Basel 1537 - Folio. pp. [xcii] 666 [ii]. Roman letter, index in Italic, occasional Greek. Printer’s woodcut device on t-p and last, woodcut initials throughout. Age-yellowing, intermittent light foxing (esp. t-p), occasional contemp. marginalia. A very good, well margined copy in contemp. vellum over bds., later black and gold morocco label on spine. Second edition of this rare and important botanical work - the first general botanical text since the time of Theophrastus - in which Jean Ruel, physician to Francis I, described in detail some 600 plants, as well as a number of species not occurring in the classical texts he drew upon (Theophrastus and Pliny). Ruel also added French names obtained by questioning the peasants and mountaineers during his plant-hunting trips. Divided into three books, the work opens with a dedication to Francis I, followed by a four-page table of contents, and by a very useful eighty-page ‘elenchus copiosissimus’ an alphabetical index of all the species mentioned. The first twenty chapters of the first book contain a general introduction in which elements of botany such as roots, branches, barks, leaves, flowers, germination, grafting, fruits, and seeds, together with their medicinal properties, the variety of colours, and even the smells and flavours of flowers and fruits, are dealt with individually. Next comes a long chapter on nomenclature, followed by numerous chapters of varying length, each devoted to a particular plant. According to the ‘Dictionary of Scientific Biography’, De Natura Stirpium ‘is elegantly written’ and the fact that, instead of a botanical classification, Ruel used alphabetical order, ‘rendered the book of great practical value’. Francis I, the dedicatee of the work and Ruel’s patron, paid the cost of printing. ‘Only a few copies [.] can still be found; the rarity of the book is attested by its absence from the libraries of Jussieu and Joseph Decaisne [.], both of whom were informed bibliophiles.’ BM STC Ger.

        Nova scientia inventa. [with:] Quesiti, et inventioni diverse.Venice; Venice: Nicolo de Bascarini; Venturino Ruffinelli, 1550; 1546.

      First edition of the <i>Quesiti</i>, second edition of the <i>Nova Scientia</i> (first, 1537), the two most important works of Tartaglia (1499-1557), and containing the extremely rare instrument plate, which is virtually unknown.<br/><br/> "Few European mathematicians of the 16th century had been as directly affected by war as Niccolò Tartaglia. In 1512, when still a boy, he received a facial wound during the sack of Brescia by the French. Left with a speech defect he adopted the nickname of Tartaglia ('stammerer') to replace his original surname Fontana. If Tartaglia's very identity was marked by war, he in turn reshaped the character of military discourse by identifying a 'new science' of artillery and casting it as a mathematical discipline ... A measure of Tartaglia's importance for the study of artillery is that [his] account was still being paraphrased and parroted into the later 17th century" (mhs.ox.ac.uk/geometry/cat1.htm).<br/><br/> I. Tartaglia's first work, the foundation of the new sciences and a major catalyst for the researches of Galileo. "<i>The New Sciences</i> stands at the threshold of a new age in the history of mechanics" (<i>Printing and the Mind of Man</i>). Tartaglia investigated problems of ballistics, fortification, surveying and engineering and sought to apply mathematical analysis to physical problems, free from the conceptual constraints of Aristotelianism and Scholasticism. "Tartaglia proved both mathematically and experimentally that the trajectory of a missile fired from a cannon was a curved line throughout, thus contradicting the 'impetus' theory derived from Aristotle's Physics, which stated that a projectile's trajectory was described by two straight lines united by a curved line (Tartaglia was the first Renaissance scientist to point out serious flaws in the <i>Physics</i>). Tartaglia demonstrated that from the beginning of its flight, a projectile was affected by gravity, which, along with wind resistance, caused its forward velocity to lessen while increasing the speed of its fall. Tartaglia also observed a relationship between the speed of projection and the speed of fall: the greater the initial speed, the less the gravitational influence. Through experimentation, he determined that the maximum cannon range, at any given initial speed, was obtained with a firing elevation of forty-five degrees" (Norman Catalogue 2053). "The latter result was obtained through an erroneous argument, but the proposition is correct (in a vacuum) and might well be called 'Tartaglia's theorem'" (Arnaldo Masotti in <i>DSB</i>).<br/><br/> Dibner describes the allegory of the frontispiece as follows: "Euclid greets the students at the outer gate of the circle in which Tartaglia is surrounded by Arithmetic, Geometry, Music, Astronomy, Astrology, etc. - the mathematical disciplines. A fired cannon and a mortar show the trajectories defined by Tartaglia. In the farther circle sits Philosophy. Beneath the scroll in Plato's hand, reading 'None not expert in Geometry may enter here', Aristotle moves forward to welcome the students."<br/><br/> II. In the <i>Questiti</i> Tartaglia continued his discussion of ballistics, but also included what, without exaggeration, can be called the first real advance in algebra since antiquity. "Tartaglia's <i>Quesiti</i> contains his most important mathematical accomplishment: the independent discovery of the rule for solving third-degree (cubic) equations, a rule first formulated but left unpublished by Sciopione de Ferro in the first or second decade of the sixteenth century. Tartaglia re-solved the problem in 1535 but kept the details a secret for many years, using his knowledge to gain advantage in the frequent public disputations held between scholars in his era. He finally revealed the rule to Girolamo Cardano in 1539 after Cardano swore to keep it secret, but six years later Cardano broke his promise by publishing the rule in his <i>Ars magna</i> ... Tartaglia was incensed at Cardano's breach of promise and abused him roundly in Book IX of the Quesiti, in which he also published his own version of his researches into third-degree equations" (Norman). <br/><br/> "Dedicated to Henry VIII, this work contains nine books of questions posed to Tartaglia by various people, and demonstrates his skill in non-mathematical areas: solving problems in the firing of artillery; topographical surveying; equilibrium in balances and statics; a new method for raising sunken ships; etc. In the course of the discussions, some fundamental issues in the theory of motion and of statics are raised, which are elaborated upon in the eighth book ... Among its other important points are the anticipation of the principle of inertia in book three, the observations on the use of compasses in book five, and the solution of cubic equations in book nine" (Roberts and Trent, p. 313). <br/><br/> The large folding plate, recorded by Cockle, is virtually unknown. The only other copy we know of was bound into a copy of the first editions of both works offered by W. P. Watson in 1999. In his description of that copy, Watson wrote that the plate "is absent from all copies I have seen or seen records of. It illustrates, with accompanying text, the construction of various instruments discussed in the text: a compass described in the fifth book of the <i>Quesiti</i>, an artillery square discussed in the first book of the <i>Nova scientia</i> and the <i>Quesiti</i>, and a quadrant in the third book of the <i>Nova scientia</i>. Its relation to both titles is explained by the fact that the <i>Quesiti</i> was intended by Tartaglia as a continuation of the <i>Nova scientia</i>. The preface to the latter promises five books, but in fact the work contains only three. In the introduction to the <i>Quesiti</i>, Tartaglia explains that he was rushed in publication of the <i>Nova scientia</i>, and is therefore offering the <i>Quesiti</i> as a continuation. In fact, the first book of the <i>Quesiti</i> has title and contents virtually identical to the unpublished fourth book announced in the contents of the <i>Nova scientia</i>. The large plate gives practical instructions and diagrams for constructing the instruments discussed in both works; its conspicuous absence from almost all copies may be the results of its having been published later and/or frequent removal for use in the instrument workshops for which it was intended" (W. P. Watson, Catalogue 4, No. 91). <br/><br/> The instrument plate is not only extremely rare, it is also highly important for Galileo's later work on the 'geometric and military compass,' the first general purpose mechanical calculating device since the abacus. Galileo read these works of Tartaglia (his annotated copy is in Florence), and Stillman Drake has demonstrated that Galileo constructed his compass by combining two of Tartaglia's instruments, both of which are illustrated and described in detail on the plate. "In Galileo's course on military architecture and fortification [at Padua, from 1592], he mentioned an artillery elevation gauge that he called the <i>squadra</i>. This was in use all over Europe, having been introduced in 1537 by Niccolò Tartaglia of Brescia in a book called "The New Science" [the <i>squadra</i> is illustrated on *2v of the first work, and on the plate] ... Another instrument introduced by Tartaglia in the same book was for use in determining the distance and height of a target by means of sighting and triangulation [illustrated on F3r of the first work and the plate] ... In 1595-96 Galileo combined Tartaglia's two instruments into one ... For this instrument ... Galileo wrote his treatise on triangulation in 1596" (Drake, p. 15). Sven Dupré has further pointed out that the surveying compass presented by Tartaglia in the fifth book of the <i>Quesiti</i>, and illustrated on the plate, is reminiscent of the ones described by Leon Battista Alberti in his <i>Ludi matematici</i>, which was one of the texts used by Ostilio Ricci, Galileo's teacher of mathematics, in his private lessons. With some modifications, the combined instrument is the one described in Galileo's first published work, <i>Le operazioni di compasso geometrico et militare</i> (1606). <br/><br/> It is interesting to note that our plate is actually a variant of Watson's: our plate has the blank area above the text shaded, in Watson's copy it was blank. The existence of two variant issues of the plate seems to be unrecorded. The lower half of the plate with the text has been glued onto the upper half, probably <i>ab initio</i>, and appears to be printed on a different paper stock: the worming affects only the region where the two halves are joined (suggesting that the perpetrators were attracted by the glue rather than the paper itself) and occurred after the two parts were joined (and after the plate was folded) as it is consistent between the two halves. <br/><br/> Stillman Drake (tr. & ed.), <i>Galileo Galilei, Operations of the Geometric and Military Compass</i> 1606, 1979; Sven Dupré, "Mathematical Instruments and the 'Theory of the Concave Spherical Mirror': Galileo's Optics beyond Art and Science", <i>Nuncius</i>, 15 (2000), pp. 551-588. <br/><br/> I.

Contemp. vellum.. First edition of Beda's collected writings on historical and astronomical chronology. The section "On the Reckoning of Time" (De temporum ratione) includes an introduction to the traditional ancient and medieval view of the cosmos, including an explanation of how the spherical earth influenced the changing length of daylight, of how the seasonal motion of the sun and moon influenced the changing appearance of the new moon at evening twilight, and a quantitative relation between the changes of the tides at a given place and the daily motion of the moon. "Ce volume contient les principaux traites de l'auteur sur le calendrier" (Houzeau/L.). The woodcut world map on d1, evidently redrawn from those of Petrus de Alliaco and Ambrosius Macrobius (Shirley 12 & 13), shows the four continents of the old world surrounded by water, the southern hemisphere labeled as "nobis incognita frigida". - Very slightly browned; title page shows insignificant fingerstaining; otherwise an excellent copy with a very few contemporary marginalia. - VD 16, B 1440.

      Woodcut title by Hans Weiditz depicts a man raking the earth and woman gathering herbs. Among the other woodcuts are illustrations of a herb garden, an apothecary shop, and a banqueting scene. Finely bound in blind - stamped full calf of the period. Second edition (first 1537) of Brunschwig's popular pharmacology and distillation manual, based on his Thesaurus pauperum, which formed Book Five of his Liber de arte distillandi, also called Grosses destillierbuch. Brunschwig's advice on herbal remedies became the authority throughout the sixteenth century. Prescriptions are offered for marital compatibility, good memory, happiness, drunkenness and fright. In addition, he describes a number of liqueurs and elixirs; the most curious is a section on intoxication with a large woodcut depicting a wild party. Brunschwig (ca. 1450 - ca. 1512) was a surgeon primarily concerned with anatomy, treatment of wounds, and pharmacy. The present edition is quite rare with only two copies located.
