        Elleborus Niger Adulterinus Syluestris, Plate 275

      Basel 1542 - Herbals are books containing the names and descriptions of plants and their medicinal properties. The herbal had declined during the Middle Ages, western European herbals of that era were based on the works of classical authors, in particular Pedanios Dioscorides, the ancient Greek writer who was the father of medical botany. This would change with the publication of Leonhart Fuchs’ illustrated herbal De historia stirpium commentarii insigne. The plan and organization of the herbal was entirely original with Fuchs, although the work did include some material derived from his Classical predecessors. Fuchs’De historia stirpium represented an impressive first step from medieval superstition to modern botany. Leonhart Fuchs, a German doctor of medicine, deplored the terrible state of medical practice during his lifetime. Most doctors of his time relied on information from illiterate apothecaries, whom were, in turn, depending upon the peasants who gathered roots and herbs for them. Fuchs realized that patients could easily be poisoned rather than cured because of improper identification of plants. Therefore he compiled this herbal to improve the German pharmacopoeia with a reference of accurate illustrations and identifications of medicinal herbs in both German and Latin. The result was a book of great splendor, without equal among sixteenth-century herbals. It is illustrated with 511 hand-colored woodcut figures, all original and depicted from life. Fuchs looked to living plants for his illustrations, a departure from common practice at that time, but then “improved” them by removing any natural imperfections and by showing a plant in the flowering and fruiting stages simultaneously. These figures established a standard of botanical illustration that has lasted to the present day, and more than 100 species were illustrated for the first time (including 12 New World plants such as maize, kidney bean, chili pepper, cactus, and tobacco). During Fuchs’ lifetime, the herbal and its various abridgments went through 39 printings in Latin, German, French, Spanish and Dutch. This hand colored wood-cut engraving, 14.25" x 9.25", is in excellent condition with evidence of verso page text. The image, Helleborus Niger, more commonly referred to as Christmas Rose or Black Hellebore, blooms in late autumn to early spring and often even in the snow, where it gets its Christmas Rose name from. In the Middle Ages it was used for many reasons, one to drive out evil spirits and witches. This engraving is original hand coloring from 1542 and has perfect oxidation of the copper in the green pigment, which goes idyllically through the paper. De Historia Stirpium is one of the earliest legitimate medicinal textbooks of its time.

        Eutyci Augustini Niphi Philothei Suessani in libru Destructio Destructionum Auerrois Comentarii . Codicillus de Sensu agente

      [apud] Jacobum Givnctam, Lyon 1542 - (ii); ff 346; (ii) pages. Tiny hole in title-page, lacking final blank leaf. Nineteenth century continental dark green quarter morocco, one corner bumped. With the book plate of the educational reformer and founder of the Dartington Trust L. K. Elmhirst. The Aristotelian scholar Eutycus Augustine Niphus was introduced to the text of Averroes' work 'Destructio Destructionum' by his friend the philosopher Jerome Bernardus of Venice and saw that it was 'full of benefit'. As well he might; for though the work was badly translated and difficult to understand, it was by the great 12th century Arab polymath Averroes, himself an Aristotelian scholar. Under pressure from his friend, Niphus agreed to present his own interpretation, which in the text follows a series of contentions between Averroes and his fellow philosopher Algazel. Size: 8vo.

"Schenk's Schriften gehören in das Gebiet der praktischen Theologie. Eine Abhandlung 'Ueber die Buße' (1539), gegen Georg Witzel gerichtet, fand den Beifall Luther's und Melanchthon's. Dagegen erhob sich gegen die Drucklegung seiner Predigten seitens der Wittenberger mehrfacher Widerspruch, so 1539, als die Herausgabe, nach erfolgter Billigung durch Melanchthon, von Luther verhindert wurde, so 1542 und 1543, als die Erlaubniß zum Verkaufe nach einer Reihe langwieriger Auseinandersetzungen nur auf wiederholte, energische Proteste dem Drucker Wohlrab in Leipzig ertheilt wurde. Die Predigten beschäftigen sich vorwiegend mit dem Katechismus und den Evangelien" (ADB XXXI, 51). - Titel des ersten Drucks unten abgerissen; hs. Besitzvermerk (dat. 1542) am vorderen Innendeckel.

        De Lateribus et Angulis Triangulorum, tum planorum rectilineorum, tum sphaericorum, libellus eruditissimus & utilissimus, cum ad plerasque Ptolemaei demonstrationes intelligendas...Additus est Canon semissium subtensarum rectarum linearum in circulo

      Title within an elaborate woodcut border & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. [30] leaves. 4to, fine 18th-cent. French-style green morocco, triple gilt fillets round sides, spine gilt, a.e.g. Wittenberg: J. Lufft, 1542. First edition of Copernicus' first original publication, containing the first appearance of any part of the text of De Revolutionibus and Rheticus' first published trigonometric tables. "When Rheticus returned to Wittenberg for the opening of the winter semester, he was elected dean of the liberal arts faculty on 18 October 1541. In early 1542 he separately published -- under the title De lateribus et angulis triangulorum -- the section on plane and spherical trigonometry in Copernicus' De revolutionibus. To this brief discussion of the Sides and Angles of Triangles [the present work] Rheticus added a table of half-chords subtended in a circle. Such a half-chord is actually a sine, although both Copernicus and Rheticus studiously avoided the use of that term. The table of sines in the Sides and Angles of Triangles differs from the corresponding table in De revolutionibus by increasing the length of the radius from one hundred thousand to ten million and by diminishing the interval of the central angle from 10' to 1'. Furthermore, by indicating the complementary angle at the foot of the columns and at the right-hand side of the page, the 1542 table became the first to give the cosine directly, although that term is not mentioned. Rheticus did not ascribe the authorship of this table to Copernicus nor, presumably out of modesty, to himself. Nevertheless, the table was undoubtedly his doing. His independent place in the history of mathematics is due precisely to his computation of innovative and monumental trigonometrical tables."­D.S.B., XI, p. 396. "This is Copernicus' first printed scientific work. Like most of the ephemeral textbooks from this period, De lateribus is quite scarce."­Gingerich, Science in the Age of Copernicus, 22. A fine and large copy with several lower margins uncut. Zinner 1795. .
