        Greece "Europae Tabula Decima continet MAcedoniam Epyrum, Archaiam, Pelopnesum & Cretam insulam

      Greece: Vienne, Daupniné Gaspar Trechsel, 1541. Black and white woodcut map o fGreece by Laurent Fries from "Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae Enarrationis, Libri Octo ... Prostant Lugduni apud Hugonem a Porta. M. D. XLI." Latin text to verso. The map is from the second edition edited by Michael Villanovanus known as Servetus, the woodblock is the same as that used for the editions of 1522 & 1535. Dark impression; dampstain to upper margin; light toning;some soiling and spotting ;wormtrack to lower centrefold in blank margin [30mm] and short split to upper centrefold [7mm]. Laurent Fries was a French physician and mathematician born around 1485 in Mulhouse. He settled finally in Strassburg where he meat Peter Apian and the publisher Johannes Grüninger which made him interested in the Ptolemy Atlas of 1513 and 1520. Fries made new woodcut maps in reduced size. His Ptolemy Atlas was published first in 1522, reissued in 1525, 1535 and 1541. He died in 1532. Second edition of Michael Servetus' Ptolemy edition, published by G. Trechsel 1541 in Vienne, Dauphine. The text is the new Latin translation by the humanist Wilibald Pirckheimer which first appeared in the 1525 edition, which has been edited by Michael Servetus, for the first time for 1535 edition and the second time for this 1541 edition. The maps of all four issues were printed from the same wooden blocks which were made for the first edition by Laurent Fries in 1522. in most cases he simply producied a reduction of the equivalent map from the 1513 edition of Waldseemüller's Geographie Opus Novissima, printed by Johann Schott. A special feature of the 1541 edition is the missing text on verso of some modern maps. This is due to the action of Calvinism, especially since the text on verso of the Holy Land map provoked controversy. Many of the first three editions were burned, which led Servetus to abdicate on some text on verso. Nevertheless, Servetus was burnt at the stake in 1553, condemned by Calvin for his doctrinal heresies, although the text is originally from Pirckheimer.

        Lexicon Juris Civilis, Ex Variis Probatorum Authorum Commentariis Congestum

      Lugdani [i.e. Lyon]: Apud Sebtastianum Gryphium, 1541. [3], cols. 14-740, [3ff]. Signatures: a-z8, A-H8. Contemporary blind-ruled sheep, with some wear and loss to surfaces. Slight loss and splitting to joints at base of spine. Dampstaining, some soiling and occasional worming to text - mostly marginal, but causing loss to the odd letter. Adam Bothwell, Bishop of Orkney's copy, with his ink inscription 'Adamus Episcopi orchadey' to title page. Later in the library of the Grahams, inscribed as such to title, with the eighteenth-century shelfmark of B.29, and with the nineteenth-century armorial bookplate of Robert Graham to FEP. Undoubtedly the copy of Adam, Bishop of Orkney (1529-1583), Reformed clergyman and civil servant who married Mary Queen of Scots to James Hepburn according to the reformed rite on 15th May 1567, and, following the former's abdication, anointed her son James as King of Scotland just two over two months later on 29th July. It bears his distinctive ink inscription to title and is entirely in keeping with the wide ranging judicial portion of his library, this most successful work of Alsatian humanist and jurist Jakob Speigel (1483-1547) is nevertheless not included in the inventory of his books contained within The Warrender Papers (London, 1932. Vol II). Not in Adams.. First Edition. Folio.

Julii Obsequentis Prodigiorum liber. ...Basel, (colophon: Andream Cratandrum, March) 1526. 8vo. With publisher's woodcut Fortuna device on verso of the last leaf and fine decorated woodcut initials. Contemporary blind-panel-stamped calf over wooden boards, with 4 different blind-stamped rectangular panels (2 on each board), each with 6 or 8 birds and animals in floral decoration, surrounded by text, 1 panel signed by Anthoine de Gavere, gilt and gauffered edges.

      Adams P-1541; BMC STC German, p. 704; VD 16, P3485; for the binding: cf. Devauchelle I, p. 60; S. Fogelmark pp. 86, 88, 126, 151, 171, 178, 185, 218, and plates XI, XXXVII R 81 (variant), and XL R 104; Gruel II, 85-87. Fine 16th-century Flemish panel-stamped binding, signed by Anthoine de Gavere. The family De Gavere were bookbinders at Ghent and Bruges between 1450 and 1545. The panel-stamped bindings from Ghent and Bruges are among the most delicately engraved and the most carefully executed of all. According to Weale, Anthoine was active at Ghent from 1459 to 1505, but the archives of Lille contain documents proving that from 1495 to 1505 Anthoine worked at Bruges, not Ghent, and that he was the binder of many of the beautiful manuscripts from the library of Philip I ("the Handsome"), Duke of Burgundy (1478-1506). A binding with similar panels signed by Anthoine de Gavere, and containing another Plinius edition, also dated 1526, is cited by Leon Gruel. Contents: three works by Plinius II, forming the main historical source for Trajan's ill-documented reign: his letters, presenting with considerable charm a richly varied picture of the life of the more cultured Romans under the Empire; his famous rhetorical essay, the Panegyricus to Trajan; and the lives of illustrious men of that period. At the end follow the biographies of literary men by Suetonius, and Julius Obsequens's work on prodigies. With several early inscriptions in the endleaves, including owners' names, and a later inscription dated 1729, early annotations in the margins. In very good condition, with only the title-page rather dirty and small corners torn off the first 2 leaves (not approaching the text). Binding with some damage to the spine and the joints cracked, brass fastenings lost (4 pins remain), some restorations, but still in good condition, the panel stamps on the front board very good and those on the back with only a crack and a few small pock marks.

Tinte im Text; letzte S. etw. angeschmutzt.. Benzing 3383, VD 16-L 6934. Das hier vorliegende Exemplar mit den bei Benzing genannten Merkmalen des 5. Abdruckes der ersten Ausgabe. Die einzelnen Drucke unterscheiden sich nur in Schriftbild, Erscheinungsort und leicht veränderter Seitenaufteilung. Die figurativ verzierte Titeleinrahmung dieser 5. Ausgabe zeigt Putten u. zwei Hirschen. Luthers theologische Deutung der Geschehnisse rund um die Türkenkreuzzüge, wie er sie vor allem in seiner Schrift "Vermahnung zum Gebet wider die Türken" von 1541 vornahm, vollzog sich noch, wie auch bei anderen Verfassern dieser Zeit, im Kontext des mittelalterlichen Weltverständnisses. In der Bedrohung durch die türkischen Truppen sah L. ein Strafgericht Gottes, das zu Buße und neuem Leben anleiten wollte. Der 'Vermahnung' gingen zwei 1529 veröffentlichte Schriften zum Türkenproblem voraus: 'Vom Kriege wider die Türcken' sowie die 'Heerpredigt wider die Türken'.

        Der Swangerenn Frawen und Hebammen Rosengarten.

      . Augsburg, Heinrich Steiner, 1541, Kl.4°. 44 Bl. mit 23 Holzschnitten, flexibler Pergamenteinband.. EIN RARISSIMUM - HEBAMMENBUCH VON 1541 - Sehr seltene, frühe deutsche Ausgabe des Rösslinschen "ROSENGARTEN", des ersten gedruckten Hebammenbuches. - "Rösslins "Rosengarten" ist ein Markstein der Geburtshilfe und Frauenheilkunde geworden, der die Geschichte der Geburtshilfe den Beginn eines neuen Abschnitt festlegt." -cf. Fasbender, p.121". - Das schön illustrierte Buch, in vielen Auflagen und Sprachen erschienen, wurde eine "WELTBERÜHMTHEIT" (Diepgen) und war für über 200 Jahre eine anerkannte Authorität. Erstmalig wird die Geburtshilfe selbständig und nicht als ein Teil der Chirurgie behandelt. Besonders interessant ist der "Rosengarten" für die Überlieferung der Kindslagenbilder zur Illustration für die typischen Handgriffe der Hebammen. Diese 16 Holzschnitte umfassende Bilderserie knüpft direkt, ohne orientalische Vermittlung, an die antiken Traditionen an. Die Vorlagen zu den Abbildungen stammen wahrscheinlich aus dem Soranus-Muscio Manuscript (13. Jahrhundert), damals in Heidelberg, jetzt in der vatikanischen Bibliothek aufbewahrt. - Der ganzseitige Holzschnitt zeigt die Wochenstube, die Wöchnerin im Himmelbett, zu ihrer rechten Seite bringt ihr eine Frauenperson einen Teller Essen, zur Linken des Bettes ein gedeckter Tisch, zu welchem noch ein Topf gebracht wird, vorn links im Bilde sitzt eine Frauenperson vor einer mit Wasser gefüllten Holzwanne, in welcher ihre blossen Füsse stehen, auf ihrem Schosse hält sie ein nacktes Kind, in ein Tuch geschlagen; im Hintergrund sieht man durch eine geöffnete Tür die Küche. Ein weiterer großer Holzschnitt zeigt eine Gebärende auf dem Stuhl, hinter ihr eine stehende Frau, welche sie hält, vor ihr die Hebamme sitzend und hilfeleistend. Der Holzschnitt auf Blatt XII verso zeigt einen Gebärstuhl. - Eucharius Rösslin, der Hebammenlehrer Europas, war ein hochangesehener Arzt, der in Freiburg i.Br., Worms und Frankfurt tätig war, wo er 1526 starb. Der "Rosengarten" half den Frauen, sich richtig auf ihre schwere Stunde vorzubereiten und ihr Leben in Schwangerschaft und Wochenbett, sowie die Pflege des Neugeborenen hygienisch zu regeln. Gleichzeitig diente es der Belehrung der Hebammen. Die vorliegende Edition ist in keiner der großen Sammlungen wie National Library of Medicine, Wellcome, Osler, Cushing, Adams, Pybus Collection, Edinburgh Libraries, Waller, Wolfenbüttel, Josephin. Bibliothek, enthalten. Weder in der umfangreichen 'Hellmann-Collection of early obstetrical books', noch bei der Bonhams-Auktion 1979 in London war ein Exemplar zu finden. - Nur ganz wenige Exemplare haben die über 450 Jahre seit ihrem Erscheinen überlebt. Auch an unserem Exemplar ist die lange Zeit nicht spurlos vorüber gegangen. Jedoch wurden alle kleinen Schäden fachmännisch restauriert: Vorsätze erneuert, der Pergamenteinband mußte neu aus altem Pergament gestaltet werden, somit entstand ein sehr schönes Exemplar dieses extrem seltenen Werkes. - Very rare edition of this important book. The only work by Eucharius Rösslin, the Elder, is the "Rosengarten". Rösslin's "Rosengarten" is the first printed book dealing exclusively with the subject of obstetrics. It became enormously popular and went through many editions and translations. For nearly two centuries they served as authoritative treatises on obstetrics throughout Europe. There has probably been no medical book in history so widely translated and distributed. - "The significance of the 'Rosengarten' is not due to its being the first printed obstetrical work, but rather to the fact that its text and illustrations resumed a tradition, broken for almost fifteen hundred years. Roesslin's famous pictures of the position of the child closely resemble the sixteen in the manuscripts of antiquity ... largely based on Soranus of Ephesus..." (Hellmann). - G.Klein, Zur Bio-Bibliographie Rösslins und seines Rosengartens, Leipzig, 1909, S.317 no.5; Fassbender, Gesch. d. Geburtshilfe, 115-121; Still, Hist. of paediatrics, pp.69-72 + 94-100; Hirsch-H. IV, 85ff; Choulant, Graphische Incunabeln für Naturgeschichte und Medizin, S.90.

        Map of Israel-- Palestine, Jordan, Holy Land, 12 tribes): Tabula nova terrae Sanctae

      G. Treschel, Vienne (France) 1541 - VG, B&W woodcut of this Fries reduction of the earlier Waldseemuller map. Striking image, showing ancient Palestine divided into the regions for the 12 tribes. Many of the waterways are not configured as we know them from modern maps (i.e. the Dead S ea shows as an elongated lake, etc.). According to Laor's "Maps of the Holy Land" this map was modelled on Vesconte-Sanuto's map of Palestine. This map has no verso text, contrary to earlier editions (first issued in Strassburg in 1522). A few central wormholes have been expertly repaired and are nearly invisible; the image is intact and measures 22x41cm.

A rare copy of the first Spanish work on Rhetoric. Miguel de Salinas believed that there should be greater accessibility to the rhetorical tradition. And so, by writing in the vernacular it opened up the subject to those Spanish speakers without a firm grasp of classical languages, in which many of the other rhetorical texts were written. Provenance: Joseph Campi (early ink inscriptions to foot of n4); Hieronymi ?Sedda (early ink inscription below colophon). . First Edition.

Woodcut vignette of an astrolabe encompassing the globe on titlepage; Melchior's device of a cat holding a mouse on verso of final leaf. Several woodcuts throughout text. Small octavo. Later vellum. Covers bowed. Light old stain at foredge of first four leaves. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. An abridgement of Apianus' 1524 COSMOGRAPHICUS LIBER, first published in this version in 1533. The COSMOGRAPHICUS LIBER remains a foundation work of cosmography, being notable for "the division of the earth into climatic zones, the uses of parallels and meridians, the determination of latitude, several methods for determining longitude including that of lunar distance, the use of trigonometry to determine distances, several types of map projections, and many other topics" (Karrow). Apianus owes much of his early work to the eminent Martin Waldseemuller, often making only minor changes to his maps and then publishing them as his own. With the publication of the present work, Apianus separates himself from his past near-plagiarism and becomes a cartographic force in his own right. This edition omits the chapters on America and is therefore not included in EUROPEAN AMERICANA, though it is recorded by Harrisse and Sabin. There is, however, a mention of America on leaf C6.

        De secretis naturae sive quinta essentia libri duo. Including : ALBERTUS MAGNUS . De mineralibus & rebus metallicis libri quinque. Quae omnia solerti cura repurgata rerum naturae studiosis recens publicata sunt per ... Gualtherum H. Ryff, ... Venice, Peter Schoeffer the younger, 1542. 8vo. With 1 full-page and 7 half-page woodcut illustrations in text, showing an oven, distilling equipment and other chemical apparatus. 18th-century sheepskin parchment, marbled pastedowns.

      Caillet 6858; Duveen, p. 369; Ferguson, Bib. Chem. II, p. 54; Ferguson, Books of Secrets 544; ICCU 031206; cf. Schuh, Magnus (other eds. of De Mineralibus); for Lullius: Thorndike II, pp. 862-873; for Albertus Magnus: Thorndike II, pp. 517-592. Second edition, edited by Walter Herman Ryff, of two famous tracts attributed to Raymond Lull and Albertus Magnus, two of the most interesting scholars of the Middle Ages. It was first published in this form in 1541 and followed a year later by the present edition "well-produced by Peter Schoeffer's youngest son" (Duveen).De secretis naturae, an alchemical treatise on the quintessence of things, is generally considered to be one of earliest of the many pseudo-Lullian texts. But is in fact a "Lullified" version of John of Rupescissa's De consideratione quintæ essentiae. The De Mineralibus by Albertus Magnus, is a 13th-century treatise on minerals divided into five parts, dealing with stones (parts I-II), metals (parts III-IV), and "intermediates" (part V), which are neither stones nor metals, but have characteristics of both. "De Mineralibus is not a simple lapidary. Even though its background is based in medieval thought, ..., the structure of the text is recognizable in modern textbooks ... With Albertus Magnus' mineralogy, the study of minerals begins to emerge from its embryonic period into a full-fledged science" (Schuh).Peter Schoeffer the younger (ca. 1475/80-1547), son of Gutenberg's assistant, appears to have been one of the most important and innovative punchcutters in history and one of the first whose roman and italic types spread widely internationally. He cut many of the types used in the present work. The book owes the quality of its production, noted by Duveen, partly to the types themselves and partly to the presswork.With owner's inscription of Lodovico Bernardy dated 1725 on first fly-leaf and an earlier owner's inscription on title-page, struck through. With most of the last leaf, containing the colophon, cut off, and faint stains in the first and last leaves, but generally in very good condition.

        Tabula nova partis Africæ.

      1541 - Vienne: Gaspar Trechsel, 1541. Coloured. Woodcut, printed area 315 x 395mm. The second printed map to focus on South Africa, reduced from Wäldseemüller's 'modern' map in his edition of Ptolemy, with added vignettes including kings, an elephant and a cockatrice (a reptile with a cockerel's head). Between the mainland and Madagascar is the King of Portugal riding on a sea-serpent, representing his country's dominance in the East. Originally intended not for an edition of Ptolemy but for a new 'Chronica mundi' being written by Wäldseemüller, his death c.1520 caused the project to be shelved. The reduced woodcuts were then used to publish a smaller sized and so cheaper edition of Ptolemy's 'Geography'. See NORWICH: 150.

        Nova, Et Integra Universi Orbis Descriptio

      Paris: Christianus Wechelus, 1541 Single sheet, matted and framed (11 2/8 x 16 2/8 inches to the neat line; framed size 24 x 28 4/8 inches). Fine woodcut double-cordiform world map, the title within a ribbon banner along the top edge, Wechelis' imprint centre lower edge, showing the world in two hemispheres, the right being mostly "Terra Australis', 'recently discovered, but not yet explored' and South America, the left, Europe and North America, surrounded by an elaborate decorative border. Provenance: The Goodyear Collection, purchased September 1984, their sale Rachel Davis Fine Arts, September 21st, 2013, lot 477. First published the Paris edition of Huttich and Grynaeus' "Novus Orbis Regionum" in 1532, this the fourth impression from the same 1531 woodblock was issued in Pomponius Mela's "De Orbis Situ", Paris, 1541. Oronce Fine's double-cordiform map of the world is remarkable for several reasons. It was the most superior rendering of the world to-date, originally accompanying Johann Huttich's and Simon Grynaeus' collection of accounts of voyages entitled "Novus Orbis Regionum". The book was first published in Basel but reprinted in Paris during 1532 by Christian Wechel with this accompanying map. It is thought that Wechel also sold copies of the map separately, as here. Another world map, "Typus Cosmographicus Universalis," rendered by Sebastian Munster and Hans Holbein in 1532, accompanied the Basel editions. Geographically, Fine's map included the most advanced information available. The North American continent remains an extension of the Asian mainland much along the lines of the Contarini-Rosselli map of 1506 and Ruysch of 1507. However, the monumental discoveries made since the creation of these maps, which forever altering the coastlines, have also been included. Fine extended the eastern coast of North America southward beyond the discoveries of Gomes and Ayllon to a peninsular outline of Florida, which is named, and a reasonable depiction of the Gulf coast as described by Pineda in 1519. This is the earliest recognizable depiction of a continuous east coast of North America on a printed map. The South American continent is also admirably depicted, incorporating discoveries by the Portugese and by Ferdinand Magellan. Central America contains numerous place names reflecting conquests and explorations. The isthmus of Darian is shown and named, as well as the "Mare magellanicum" (Pacific Ocean), one of the first uses of the navigator's name in such a context. The west coast of Mexico, although continuous with Asia, is the earliest record on a printed map of the discoveries of Hernando Cortes."Terra Australis" (Australia) fills much of the right-hand (or southern) cordum and is marked as being 'recently discovered but not yet explored.' The north pole is indicated by four islands and the separate island of Greenland is named. A large promontory marked "Gaccalar" (supposedly Labrador) extends from North America into the Atlantic. This highly detailed woodcut is surrounded by floral embellishments, two mermaids, two muscular cherubs, the French royal coat of arms and, at the head of the map, the title in a flowing banner. It's cartographic findings were hugely influential to the history of mapping and were followed by Gerard Mercator for his important world map of 1538, and for the copies by Antonio Salamanca (ca. 1550) and Antonio Lafreri (ca. 1564). Oronce Fine was a French mathematician and cartographer. Born in Briançon, the son and grandson of physicians, he was educated in Paris (Collège de Navarre), and obtained a degree in medicine in 1522. In 1531, he was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the Collège Royal (the present Collège de France), founded by Francis I of France, where he taught until his death. As well as being a fortifications expert (he worked on the fortifications of Milan), Fine was a noted astronomer and cartographer. He invented the cordiform or heart-shaped map, frequently utilized by other cartographers, such as Peter Apian and Gerardus Mercator. Oronce Fine's maps are particularly notable for his attempts to reconcile the discoveries in the New World with old medieval legends and information (derived from Ptolemy) regarding the Orient. H.

        Dialogi di Amore composti per Leone medico, di natione hebreo, et dipoi fatto christiano

      Venice: in casa de' figliuoli di Aldo, 1541. Venice: in casa de' figliuoli di Aldo, 1541. First Aldine edition. Boards. Very Good/Informed by Jewish and Platonic currents, the Dialogues on Love managed to leap out of its borders and become a seminal influence on Renaissance philosophies of love. It was first published in Rome six years earlier, but received little attention until this first Aldine edition launched the text's international success as one of the most popular philosophical works of its age. Not only was it considered an emblematic text of its age and among the best examples of the treatises on love that abounded in its wake, but it managed to synthesize Italian, Iberian, Neapolitan, and Jewish currents into a Neoplatonic matrix that resonated into the broader European culture of the sixteenth century.. Octavo (16 cm); [2], 241 (misnumbered 261), [1] leaves. Aldine anchor device on title page and on verso of final leaf. Nineteenth-century 1/4 calf, spine faded. Slight soiling on title-page, with few stains. Cropped marginalia in Italian throughout. Bookseller's ticket of William Salloch. Bookplate of Kenneth Rapoport.

In Pogium Florentinum apologeticus & scenicus actus admodum fesivus ac facetus. Iodoci Badii Ascensii in sex de Latinae linguae elegantia libros & libellum de reciprocatione, postrema epitome.

      Paris, Ex officina Rob. Stephani typographii Regii, 1541, 5. Oktober.. Quart. Titelblatt mit schönem Druckersignet, 495, 109, (24) S. Eleganter, zeitgenössischer Kalbslederband auf fünf Bünde geheftet.. Der bedeutendste Philologe des Spätmittelalters als Kritiker der Jurisprudenz! Die Impulse für eine Reform der Rechtswissenschaft gingen von der französischen Reformuniversität Bourges aus. Der bedeutende Gräzist Bude erstellte die ersten philologisch ausgrichteten Kommentare zu den Digesten. Der Mailänder Jurist Andreas Alciat nahm diesen Impuls auf und begründete mit der humanistischen Jurisprudenz eine juristische Epoche, die ihre Ausrichtung auf die Antike und die klassische Philologie verstärkte. Unter den Initiatoren einer Reform innerhalb der Rechtswissenschaft befindet sich auch der größte lateinische Philologe des 15. Jahrhunderts Lorenzo Valla. Valla war ein Sprachgenie, ein gebildeter Gelehrter von höchstem Wissen, der auch zu temperamentvollen Kritiken neigte. Lorenzo Valla, in Rom geboren, entfaltete seine ganze Gelehrsamkeit in Florenz, dem Zentrum der italienischen Renaissnce. Valla hat die antike Rhetorik wiederentdeckt und er zeigte, wie wenig es den frühen Humanisten um die Rekonstruktion der antiken Welt ging. Valla entwickelte die Philologie zu bis dato nicht gekannter Präzision. Zugleich setzte er diese sowohl zur Lebenserneuerung wie als Waffe ein. So kritisierte er die Juristen vehement. Er griff sie an wegen ihres barabarischen Lateins. Er hielt ihnen vor, die Texte aufgrung ihrer mangelnden philologischen Ausbildung gar nicht richtig zu verstehen. Neben aller Kritik schöpften die Juristen auch Mut aus dem Werk von Valla. Im dritten Buch bezeugt Valla seine große Bewunderung für die Digesten und deren schöpferische Kraft: "Perlegi proxime quinquaginta Digestorum libros ex plerisque iurisconsultorum voluminibus excerptos, & relegi quum libenter, tum vero quadam cum admiratione. Primum, quod nescias utrum diligentiae an gravitas, prudentia an aequitas, scientia rerum an orationis dignitas praestet, & mariori laude digna esse videatur..."

He first explains the computation using 'kardagas' (arc of 15°) according, he says, to the method of az-Zarqal, and then, at somewhat greater length, sets out Ptolemy's derivation from the first book of the 'Almagest'" (DSB). - Ungewöhnlich sauberes und gut erhaltenes Exemplar. - DSB 15, 473; VD16 P2071; Zinner 1781; Zinner, Regiomontanus Nr. 131

        Instrumentum sinuum, seu primi mobilis... nunc autem ab eodem diligenter recognitum & locupletatum.

      Nürnberg, Petreius, 1541.. (32 x 20 cm). 44 (1w) Bll. Mit großem Titelholzschnitt, blattgroßem Wappenholzschnitt und zahlreichen Textholzschnitten. Moderner Halbpergamentband im Stil der Zeit.. Zweite Ausgabe dieses bedeutenden, 1534 erstmals erschienenen Werkes. Es stellt den Höhepunkt seiner trigonometrischen Anwendungen in der Astronomie dar. Apian, der von Cantor als "sinnreicher Erfinder von trigonometrisch anwendbaren Vorrichtungen" bezeichnet wird, beschreibt hier ein Instrument zum Auffinden des Sinus und des Sinus versus. "Of greater scientific significance, however, is Apian's 'Instrumentum sinuum sive primi mobilis' (1534), where he calculates sines for every minute, with the radius divided decimally. These are the first such tables ever printed" (DSB). - Ungewöhnlich sauberes Exemplar. - DSB 1, 178; VD16 A 3088; Zinner 1768; Van Ortroy 108; Houzeau-Lancaster 2399
