        Alphabetu[m] Hebraicum. Cum privilegio regis. Paris, Robert Estienne, 1550. 8vo. With Estienne's woodcut tree device on title-page. Set in Hebrew (meruba and rabbinical), roman and Greek types. Early sheepskin parchment wrappers.

      Buisson p. 2; Renouard 3; WorldCat (4 copies); cf. Updike, I, p. 204, note (not specifying an ed.); for the types: Vervliet, Conspectus 377, 378, 396, 399 (Hebrew, illustrating the 1543 ed.), 352 (Greek), 51, 106, 143 (roman); Vervliet, Palaeotypography, pp. 105-160, types 1, 2, 4, 15, 23, 25, 26, 27 (illustrating the 1543 ed.); not in Adams; Audin, Livrets typographiques; Birrell & Garnett; BMC STC French; Philologia orientalis; Schreiber. Third edition, showing the beautiful Hebrew types introduced in the second edition (1543), of Robert Estienne's handy little guide to Hebrew, intended mainly as a primer for scholars learning the language but especially valuable today as a specimen of his types. The book's pages progress from right to left, as in a Hebrew book. It includes complete alphabets of the meruba Hebrew and the smaller rabbinical Hebrew.Robert Estienne (ca. 1503-1559), the greatest scholarly printer and publisher of the French golden age, worked at Paris from 1526 to 1550 and at Geneva from 1550 to 1559. He published a combined guide to Greek and Hebrew in 1528, but expanded both parts for separate publication in 1539. The 1539 Alphabetum Hebraicum introduced the present rabbinical Hebrew type, but its meruba Hebrew was a rather poor type that he abandoned in the second edition (1543), where he introduced three new meruba Hebrews, all used again in the present edition. All three were cut in-house for Estienne ca. 1539-1542 by Jean Arnoul, also known as Picard le jeune (ca. 1510/15?-ca. 1545). Although Picard's name is little known today, no doubt due in part to his premature death, Le Bé's son described him as "homme le plus adroit a la proportion & grace des caracteres quil fut en ce templa". The present Hebrew types, some of the best ever made, show he deserved this praise. They form a link between the more famous types of Bomberg in Venice and those later cut by Le Bé and used by many printers, including Plantin. In very good condition and nearly untrimmed, retaining some deckles, with the fold of the outer bifolium of the first quire reinforced.

        De humani corporis fabrica libri septem.

      Basle colophon: Johannes Oporinus June 1543 - Folio, pp. [xii], 659 (recte 663), [36], with a fine woodcut title, woodcut portrait of the author, two double page-size woodcuts (within pagination and folded; one printed on both sides), and one additional folded leaf with eight woodcuts, 21 full-page woodcuts, c. 200 smaller woodcuts, numerous woodcut initials, and woodcut printer's device at the end; ruled in red throughout and the capitals rubricated in pale yellow; title mounted at the date of binding (a little loss to inner margin of the woodcut border), tears to *2 and to the leaf with the portrait repaired without loss; one opening with offsetting from an inserted leaf; occasional light spotting; 17th-century French mottled, spine richly ornamented and lettered in gilt a la grotesque, raised bands, sprinkled edges; minor restorations to corners. A VERY GOOD, CLEAN COPY IN A VERY WELL PRESERVED 17TH-CENTURY BINDING, OF THE FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORKS IN THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE. This copy is complete with the leaf of overlays, intended to be cut out and lacking in a number of copies. 'The Fabrica, a handsomely printed folio, is remarkable for its series of magnificent plates, which set new technical standards of anatomical illustration, and indeed of book illustration in general. They have generally been ascribed to an artist of Titian's school No other work of the sixteenth century equals it It was translated, reissued, copied and plagiarized over and over again and its illustrations were used or copied in other medical works until the end of the eighteenth century' (PMM). 'Published when the author was only 29 years old, the Fabrica revolutionized not only the science of anatomy but how it was taught. Throughout his encyclopaedic work on the structure and workings of the human body, Vesalius provided a fuller and more detailed description of the human body than any of his predecessors, correcting errors in the traditional anatomical teachings of Galen. Even more epochal than his criticism of Galen and other medieval authorities was Vesalius' assertion that the dissection of cadavers must be performed by the physician himself' (Garrison-Morton). The present copy is complete with the inserted single leaf m3, headed Charta parvas aliquot figuras complectens: 'This leaf has on its recto eight anatomical figures which were to be cut out and superimposed on the folded m3 double-leaf The half-sheet in question is often absent' (Cushing).

        Original-Lutherbibel von 1543, AT und NT, 117 Abb. von L. Cranach, bei Lufft v

      . Bei dieser Bibel handelt es sich um eine Ausgabe von Hans Lufft, Wittenberg, 1543. Sie ist in einem Ledereinband auf 7 Bünden mit Rollstempelverzierung aus der Entstehungszeit gebunden. Der Einband ist allerdeings stark berieben und abgegriffen und deshalb ist die Verzierung ist kaum mehr sichtbar. Der Einband war ursprünglich mit Eckbeschlägen und Schließen versehen, die aber fehlen. Lediglich die Druckstellen lassen darauf schließen, daß die Beschläge und Schließen einmal vorhanden waren. Der Drucksatz ist einspaltig, der Satzspiegel ist etwa 18 X 28 cm. Die Anfangsinitialen der einzelnen Bücher und Absätze sind kunstvoll floral und von Holzstöcken (2,5 x 2,5 cm und 4,5 x 4,5 cm) gedruckt. Die 117 Abb. (10,8 cm x 14,7 cm) stammen ausschließlich von Lucas Cranach. Die Wissenschaft geht davon aus, daß es sich dabei um Lucas Cranach den Älteren handelt. Die Ausschmückungen der Bibel sind besonders kunstvoll gestaltet, da diese Bibel auf der Frühjhahsmesse in Leipzig ausgestellt wurde. Zum Zustand der Seiten: Einige wenige Seiten und einige wenige Abb. sind nur noch als Fragmente erhalten. Die meisten Seiten aber sind in einem altersäßig guten Zustand, manchmal allerdings etwas wasserrandig. Der Schnitt ist durch Verschmutzung ziemlich dunkel. Der Einband ist fest und auch der Buchblock mit allen Seiten ist fest eingebunden. Für weitere Fragen zum Zustand und Inhalt dieser Bibel stehen wir Ihnen jederzeit gern zur Verfügung..

(12), 124, (4) SS. (8), 108, (2) SS. Holzdeckelband der Zeit mit breitem Rücken aus weißem Kalbleder, sign. und dat. "PAZL 1659". Folio.. Erste Ausgabe der ersten gedruckten Koranübersetzung überhaupt. Eine von mehreren undatierten Druckvarianten, die sich u. a. durch die Kollation der Vorstücke und die Zuschreibung der Praemonitio unterscheiden; im vorliegenden Exemplar läuft diese unter Luthers (nicht Melanchthons) Namen. Am Schluß der Vorstücke findet sich außerdem die nicht in allen Varianten enthaltene Praefatio Luthers (2 Bll.). "Der Text dieser lateinischen Koranübertragung geht auf ein arabisches Manuskript zurück, welches im 12. Jahrhundert von Pierre von Cluny und Bernard von Clairvaux anläßlich ihres Besuches in Toledo erworben wurde. Pierre von Cluny übertrug dem Engländer Robert von Kent, der sich ebenfalls in Toledo aufhielt, die Aufgabe, dieses Manuskript ins Lateinische zu übersetzen. Eine Version davon besaß vierhundert Jahre später Martin Luther, der sie wiederum Theodor Bibliander zur Veröffentlichung anvertraute. Neben dieser Textversion benutzte Bibliander noch drei andere Manuskripte, die er zusätzlich gefunden hatte. Am 1. Juli 1542 wurde jedoch der Satz und die fertigen Druckbogen von der Obrigkeit beschlagnahmt. Mit dem Basler Rat begannen langwierige Verhandlungen, in deren Folge am 30. August Joh. Oporin verurteilt und für kurze Zeit in Haft genommen wurde. Nur durch das energische Eingreifen von Luther und Melanchthon wurde die Vernichtung des Satzes und der ausgedruckten Bogen verhindert. Schließlich stimmte der Baseler Rat am 7. Dezember 1542 einer Veröffentlichung unter der Bedingung zu, daß in der Auflage weder der Name der Stadt noch der Name des Druckers publiziert wurde. Zudem wurde verfügt, daß Luther zu der Edition ein Vorwort beisteuern müßte und daß das Buch nur von Wittenberg aus verkauft werden dürfte" (Enay). Der zweite Teil enthält eine Kompilation von älteren Schriften über den Islam und den Koran, teils mit griechisch-lateinischem Paralleltext, darunter Schriften von Savonarola und Nikolaus von Kues. Der dritte Teil enthält Schriften über die Türken, den Islam und den Mongoleneinfall Timur Lengs. - II: Erste Ausgabe. Enthält im ersten Teil die Übersetzung, im zweiten den griechischen Text. "Kaiser Johannes Kantakuzenos schrieb eine Apologie, in der er zum Teil mit theologischen Argumentationen die Lehre Mohammeds zu widerlegen versuchte, zum Teil aber auch auf die 'Mohammedlegenden' einging. Weitgehend benützte er in seiner Apologie das Propugnaculum des Riccoldo de Monte Croce" (Göllner). - Beide Drucke recht sauber; stärkere Wurmspuren gegen Anfang und Ende fachmännisch geschlossen. Einband etwas beschabt und bestoßen, mit Wurmlöchern. Ein ähnlicher Einband wird in der Festschrift Otto Schäfer S. 434 beschrieben. Beide tragen die Initialen von Placidus Hieber, Abt zu Lambach (Amtszeit 1640-1678). - I: VD 16, ZV 18456. Adams M 1889 (?). BM-STC German 479. Graesse IV, 43. Vgl.

VD 16 V 1427 o. 1429. - Goedeke II, 217,25. - Frühe Ausgabe der ersten deutschen Vergil-Übertragung von Thomas Murner (1475-1537), die erstmals 1515 in Straßburg erschienen war: Murner übersetzt neben den 12 Büchern Vergils auch das 13. von Maffeo Vergio (1406-1458). Er überträgt die Geschichte mit begrifflichen Anpassungen ins Deutsche und führt einige Stellen über eine Übersetzung hinausgehend aus. Während die Fakten trotz Inhalts-Verschiebungen ungefähr bestehen bleiben, wird von Vergils Stil fast nichts in den deutschen Text hinübergerettet (Gronemeyer 1963). "Rücksichtnahme auf die Verstehens- und Aufnahmebereitschaft breiter Schichten transponiert das würdevolle antike Epos auf ein niedriges Sprach- und Stilniveau, versetzt es in die zeitgenössische Lebensumwelt, formt es um in volkstümliche Knittelverse. Der Leistung Murners, die über hundert Jahre konkurrenzlos blieb und fünf Neuauflagen erlebte, wird man nur mit historischen Maßstäben gerecht." (Murner-Katalog, Karlsruhe 1987, S. 208). - Das Bl. mit dem Druckvermerk fehlt (Kopie liegt bei), Gelenke vorne u. hinten etw. gelockert. Einband aus einer alten Musikhandschrift fleckig. Stempel auf Rücks. d. Titels. Einige Einrisse u. Knicke, 2 Eckabrisse ohne Textverlust. Kl. Wurmgang. Einige alte Tintenmarginalien. Insgesamt ansprechend.

        De humani corporis fabrica libri septem.

      Basel, (Johannes Oporinus, Juni 1543).. Folio (428 x 282 mm). Woodcut title-page depicting a lecture hall with the dissection of a corpse, woodcut portrait of Vesalius (aged 28) with a dissected arm on *6v, woodcut initials (depicting cherubs conducting dissections or robbing graves), woodcut illustrations (some full-page), woodcut and letterpress double-sided folding plate at m3, with another sheet signed m3, woodcut and letterpress folding plate at p4, woodcut printer's device on final verso. Early 18th-c. speckled calf with contemp. marbled pastedowns and later endpapers, spine with raised bands marked by double gilt fillets, red morocco lettering-piece, edges speckled but retaining contemporary title lettered on foot of text-block. Modern slipcase.. First edition of the most famous anatomical work ever published. - With the publication of "De humani corporis fabrica" (when he was only twenty-eight) Vesalius revolutionised both the science of anatomy and how it was taught. In his preface, he describes his disappointing experiences as a student in Paris and Louvain, stating his intention to reform the teaching of anatomy by giving in this book a complete description of the structure of the human body and thereby drawing attention "to the falsity of Galen's pronouncements". Vesalius also broke with tradition by performing dissections himself instead of leaving this task to assistants: the striking and dramatic title-page illustration shows him conducting such a dissection, his hand plunged into a female cadaver (striking in itself, as only the cadavers of executed criminals could be legally dissected and female criminals were rarely executed), surrounded by a seething mass of students. - The "Fabrica" is also revolutionary for "its unprecedented blending of scientific exposition, art and typography" (Norman). Vesalius took great care with every aspect of his book: his letter to Joannes Oporinus, reproduced in the prefatory matter (*5r-v), discusses the layout of the book, the system of reference between text and image, and the delivery of the woodcut blocks. The numerous and elegant illustrations, including the title-page and the frequently disarming woodcut initials, were entrusted to Jan Stephan van Calcar (1499-1546), a student of Titian who had also worked on Vesalius's "Tabulae anatomicae sex" of 1537-38. The beauty and accuracy of these woodcuts led to frequent piracy, despite Vesalius's attempts to protect his work with various privileges (as stated at the foot of the title-page). - B2-5 and 3-4 transposed. Light dampstaining to upper corner of textblock. Title-page very slightly soiled with a few small holes (one affecting image) and laid down; a few small marginal paper repairs (that on Q5 touching image but without loss). A few small abrasions and repairs on lower cover; extremities repaired; small tear to head of spine. A tall copy. - VD 16, V 910. Cushing VI.A.1. Eimas 281. Norman 2137. Wellcome 6560.

        The Chronicle of Jhon Hardyng in metre, from the firste begynnyng of Englande, unto the reigne of kyng Edwarde the fourth

      London: Richard Grafton. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Scarce 1543 edition of John Hardyng's Chronicles: an important source for Shakespeare, Spenser, and Malory. The Chronicles were first printed in two separate editions in January 1543, compiled and issued by Richard Grafton. The edition offered here contains the expanded section (by Grafton) on Henry VIII. The English chronicler John Hardyng's (1378-1465) lengthy verse chronicle covers English history from Brutus through Hardyng's own lifetime. Hardyng, who served in the household of Henry Percy (Hotspur) and was present at the battle of Agincourt was an eyewitness to many important events of the day. Richard Grafton, who edited Hardyng's manuscripts, continued his history down to the reign of Henry VIII. Hardyng's Chronicle has been cited as a significant influence on Malory (who likely read it in manuscript form), Shakespeare (most notably for Henry IV), and Spenser. London: Richard Grafton, 1543. Eighteenth century full calf rebacked with original spine laid-down; custom half-morocco box. Handsome armorial bookplate of Baron Lord Calthorpe on front pastedown. A few early marginal notes to text. Title page with browning and repaired tear on outer edge; occasional browning to text (mostly to Grafton continuation); a few tears to pages in Grafton continuation; colophon with repaired tear to corner.

        Alphabetu[m] Hebraicum. Cum privilegio regis.

      - Buisson p. 2; Renouard 3; WorldCat (4 copies); cf. Updike, I, p. 204, note (not specifying an ed.); for the types: Vervliet, Conspectus 377, 378, 396, 399 (Hebrew, illustrating the 1543 ed.), 352 (Greek), 51, 106, 143 (roman); Vervliet, Palaeotypography, pp. 105-160, types 1, 2, 4, 15, 23, 25, 26, 27 (illustrating the 1543 ed.); not in Adams; Audin, Livrets typographiques; Birrell & Garnett; BMC STC French; Philologia orientalis; Schreiber. Third edition, showing the beautiful Hebrew types introduced in the second edition (1543), of Robert Estienne's handy little guide to Hebrew, intended mainly as a primer for scholars learning the language but especially valuable today as a specimen of his types. The book's pages progress from right to left, as in a Hebrew book. It includes complete alphabets of the meruba Hebrew used for the main text and the smaller rabbinical Hebrew, both including the five variant forms for letters in the final position. The meruba also appears in a 2-page table showing the letters with all possible combinations of vowel points and dagesh, a table showing the cantillation marks (all with the letter beth) and a table of the Hebrew numbers. The text also shows the wider ("dilated") forms used for a few letters to aid justification of the lines. After a brief explanatory text in Latin, the book provides eight pages of Hebrew texts, with transliterations in a small roman type above and Latin translations in a larger roman below, and two pages of Hebrew text without transliteration or translation. At least some of the texts are taken from the Old Testament. Aldus Manutius had published an Alphabetum Hebraicum ca. 1501, and it no doubt influenced Estienne, but Estienne provided more material and presented it better. Neither Aldus ca. 1501 nor Estienne in 1539 showed the cantillation marks, and the two pages of Hebrew text without transliteration or translation were also new in the 1543 edition.Robert Estienne (ca. 1503-1559), the greatest scholarly printer and publisher of the French golden age, worked at Paris from 1526 to 1550 and at Geneva from 1550 to 1559. He published a combined guide to Greek and Hebrew in 1528, but expanded both parts for separate publication in 1539. The 1539 Alphabetum Hebraicum introduced the present rabbinical Hebrew type, but its meruba Hebrew was a rather poor type (the younger Le Bé described it as "vilain") that he abandoned in the second edition (1543), where he introduced three new meruba Hebrews, all used again in the present edition, the middle size for the main text. All three were cut in-house for Estienne ca. 1539-1542 by Jean Arnoul, also known as Picard le jeune (ca. 1510/15?-ca. 1545), assisted Guillaume Le Bé I, then still an apprentice. Incidentally the book uses one size of Claude Garamont's famous Grecs du Roi (also new in 1543) and three of the four sizes of Estienne's seminal roman types, introduced 1530-1533 and formerly attributed to Garamont but now to "Maitre Constantin". Although Picard's name is little known today, no doubt due in part to his premature death, Le Bé's son described him as "homme le plus adroit a la proportion & grace des caracteres quil fut en ce templa". The present Hebrew types, some of the best ever made, show he deserved this praise. They form a link between the more famous types of Bomberg in Venice and those later cut by Le Bé and used by many printers, including Plantin. When Picard cut these types Augereau and apparently also Constantin had died and Garamont was just beginning to establish his reputation.

        Il combattimento delle amazzoni

      Bulino, 1543, datato e monogrammato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Perin del Vaga. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, leggere abrasioni nel margine bianco, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione, ritenuta dal Bartsch invenzione di Raffaello o di Giulio Romano, deriva dal foglio di Perin del Vaga raffigurante il combattimento delle amazzoni conservato al Louvre e noto come Teseo e le Amazzoni. La scena è una delle dieci rappresentazioni intagliate su cristallo da Giovanni Bernardi che adornano la Casetta Farnese, oggi al museo di Capodimonte di Napoli. Rispetto al disegno del Perin, l?opera di Enea Vico è molto più ricca di particolari e interpretata in maniera del tutto personale. L?artista raggiunge con questa incisione un risultato bizzarro, complicato da arbitrari usi della luce alternati da ombre scure e zone appena tratteggiate al bulino. Il risultato è un effetto teatrale altamente suggestivo e tipicamente manierista. Opera rara e ricercata. Engraving, 1543, monogrammed and dated in plate lower center. After Perin del Vaga. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, light abrasions in the white margin, otherwise in excellent condition. The composition, which is considered by Bartsch invention by Raphael or Giulio Romano, is derived from the drawing by Perin del Vaga depicting the battle of the Amazons in the Louvre and known as Theseus and the Amazons. The scene is one of the ten representations of crystal carved by Giovanni Bernardi adorning the house Farnese, now in the Capodimonte Museum in Naples. Compared to the design of Perin, Enea Vico's work is much richer in detail and interpreted in a personal way. The artist achieves this result engraving a bizarre, complicated by arbitrary use of light alternating with dark shadows and areas just dashed to the punch. The result is a theatrical and evocative typically mannerist. Bartsch XV, p. 287, 14; Massari, Tra Mito ed Allegoria, p. 262, 100. Dimensioni 280x205.

        La cacciata dal Paradiso Terrestre.

      Bulino, 1543, monogrammato in lastra. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilate al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1543, signed on plate. A good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions. Shortly before 1520, several young artists in the immediate circle of Albercht Dürer began making remarkably small engravings that challenged the viewer with a world in miniature; a world of new secular subject and of unconventional interpretations of traditional themes. Because of the scale of their engravings these artists have long been saddled with the unflattering collective name the Little Masters. The core of the group consist in three Nuremberg artists, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham and Georg Pencz, Jacob Bink form Cologne and Heinrich Aldegrever from Soest. This engraving comes from an old collection and were pasted in XVIII century portofolio. Bartsch 7, Pauli 8 III/III. Dim.56x81.

        Alcuni opusculetti de le cose morali del Divino Plutarco in questa nostra lingua nuovamente tradotti.

      in Venetia, Michele Tramezino, 1543. 1543 In-8° (156x101mm), pp. (1), 176, legatura antica p. pergamena con titolo calligrafato verticalmente in antico al dorso. Impresa xilografica con figura della Sibilla al frontespizio (replicata al colophon); spazi guida per i capilettera. Sparse bruniture ed alone al frontespizio. Piccoli restauri al dorso. Ex-libris moderno. Varie annotazioni di possesso antiche. Discreto esemplare. Prima edizione in volgare di alcuni opuscoli morali di Plutarco, alcuni dei quali a carattere pedagogico. Nonostante la titolazione (che fu data in realtà soltanto nel XIII secolo da Massimo Planude, che per primo li raccolse in un corpus organico), i "Moralia" plutarchei esorbitano dalla pura trattazione di filosofia morale, finendo con l'abbracciare questioni di religione, politica, scienze naturali, letteratura, medicina.

        Astronomia instaurata, libris sex comprehensa, qui de revolutionibus orbium coelestium inscribuntur. Nunc demum post 75 ab obitu authoris annum integritati suae restituta, notisque illustrata, opera & studio D. Nicolai Mulerii.Amsterdam: Willem Janszoon Blaeu, 1617.

      The important third edition of Copernicus's <i>De revolutionibus</i> (first printed 1543), but the first to contain a commentary. This edition was extensively corrected and annotated by Mulerius, and includes (for the first time) Copernicus's biography. Nicholaus Müller, or Mulerius (1564-1630) was a professor of mathematics at the University of Gröningen.<br/><br/> "Important third edition, published by Blaeu (a student of Tycho Brahe) in 1617 soon after <i>De Revolutionibus</i> was condemned." (Eisenstein, The Printing Press as an Agent of Change, p.617). "This edition, much improved over the previous two remained the standard edition until the nineteenth century." (Van Berkel, et al, A history of science in the Netherlands, p.35). "The publication of 'On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres' in 1543 was a landmark in human thought. It challenged the authority of antiquity and set the course for the modern world by its effective destruction of the anthropocentric view of the universe." (Printing and the Mind of Man).<br/><br/> Copernicus "was indisputably the first great astronomer of modern times; the first to assign the Earth its proper planetary status and the first to provide a scientific justification for placing the sun near the center of the known universe. He initiated a revolution, not only in astronomy but also in physics, by ascribing the Earth a circular motion." (Hilfstein). The book had a small but highly significant readership, including (according to Owen Gingerich) Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, G. Rheticus, J. Schoner, and Ch. Clavius. This third edition, published one year after <i>De revolutionibus</i> was placed on the <i>Index librorum prohibitorum</i> by papal authority, was the last of the early editions of this epochal work. <br/><br/> <i>De revolutionibus</i> was placed on the <i>Index librorum prohibitorum</i> in 1616, and a desultory attempt was made to censor copies in circulation; this effort was carried out with any regularity only in Italy. The Copernican cosmology was unchallenged by the Catholic Church for more than seventy years for a number of reasons: Andreas Osiander's anonymous (and unauthorized) preface presented <i>De revolutionibus</i> as a strictly hypothetical system invented as a convenient calculating device, but not necessarily true, even if consistent with astronomical observations. Perhaps, because of this disarming foreword, cleverly addressed, as though in the name of the author, the Church overlooked the revolutionary importance of <i>De revolutionibus</i>. Copernicus himself "was annoyingly vague concerning whether or not he believed in the reality of his system" (Gingerich). <br/><br/> This 1617 Amsterdam edition annotated by Nicolaus Mulerius (1564 - 1630), quickly became the standard one. Like many astronomers, Mulerius had studied medicine and in 1614 he was appointed to the chair of medicine and mathematics at the new University of Groningen. Apart from his edition of Copernicus, he is perhaps best known for his <i>Tabulae Frisicae lunae-solares quadruplices</i> of 1611, astronomical tables based on the work of Ptolemy, Copernicus and Tycho Brahe.<br/><br/> The book is illustrated with numerous astronomical and geometrical woodcut diagrams, including a woodcut showing the heliocentric system. Also of interest is a woodcut of 'triquetrum,' i.e the paralactic instrument (Book IV, Ch. 15 of <i>De Revolutionibus</i>), which was primarily designed to determine the moon's parallaxes, and probably, was the most popular astronomical instrument before the invention of the telescope. Also included are numerous tables of planetary motions and the positions of stars. <br/><br/> Nicolaus Copernicus (Nikolai Kopernik) was born February 19, 1473 in Torun, Poland. Copernicus received his education, first at the University of Krakow, and then at various universities in Italy. While attending Padua University in Italy, Copernicus studied medicine, the Greek language, and mathematical sciences. He eventually received a degree in Canon Law at the University of Ferrara. When Copernicus returned to Poland he practiced medicine, though his official employment was as a canon in the cathedral chapter run by his uncle, the Bishop of Olsztyn. Copernicus was never a professional Astronomer. The great work that made him famous was written in his spare time. A full account of his heliocentric theory titled, On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres (<i>De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium</i>) was published in 1543, very near the end of Copernicus' life. He is said to have received a copy of the printed book on his deathbed. Copernicus' heliocentric system was considered implausible by the vast majority of his contemporaries, and by most astronomers and natural philosophers until the middle of the seventeenth century. Its notable defenders included Johannes Kepler (1571 - 1630) and Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642). Strong theoretical underpinning for the Copernican theory was finally provided by Sir Isaac Newton's theory of universal gravitation (1687). Copernicus died on May 24, 1543 in Frombork, Poland. <br/><br/> Cinti 128 (58); De Caro 72; Honeyman II 756; Houzeau & Lancaster 2503; Thorndike VII, pp. 51-52.. 4to (232 x 167 mm), contemporary vellum, pp [22] 487 [1:blank], Woodcut printer's device on title-page, with motto 'Praestat' on title, numerous woodcut diagrams throughout the text, decorative woodcut initials. Publisher's prefatory note to the reader on verso of title-page. Preliminaries further contain a dedicatory preface by Mulerius, A letter from Nicholas Schonberg, Cardinal of Capua to Copernicus, dated November 1, 1536 (encouraging him to publish the work or at least to send him a copy of the manuscript); Copernicus' dedication to Pope Paul III from the 1543 first edition, and Andreas Osiander's anonymous apologetic preface Ad lectorem de hypothesibus huius operis. Errata on (****)3. Small rubber stamp to the title page (Swedish library?), repaired from the verso. Very light water stain to the lower margin of the first half of the book, but in all a very fine and unsophistaced copy in its original state

        Hecatomgraphie. C&#39;est a dire les descriptio[n]s de ce[n]t figures & hystoires, contenans plusieurs appopthegmes, Sentences & dictz, tant des Anciens que les modernes

      Paris: Denys Janot, 1543. Octavo. 104ff. Illustrated with 100 small woodcuts of emblems attributed to Jean Cousin and framed by four-part borders of four different designs. With woodcut initials in "lettre fleuries" and criblé style. Of the two issues that comprise the third edition of this rare emblem book, this copy belongs to what is widely accepted to be the first issue, which preserves the title spelling of the 1540 and 1541 editions and employs a roman font for the verse legends, a font that is italic in the second issue. The colophon in this copy preserves the "m" in Hecatomgraphie. Mortimer points out Corrozet&#39;s view of the emblem book as a "model book," i.e., a textual structure that is able to clearly and effectively impart instruction through a combination of verse and image. His verses, therefore, are set up in dialogue form, a common didactic style of the period. Many of the woodcuts appeared in previous works printed by Janot, who is credited with printing the first emblem book in French. Mortimer notes that all editions of this title are rare. Title page remargined, small stain and hole at lower margin of title page, extending to A2, some very early underlining throughout, else crisp and clean internally, with strong impressions. Bound in eighteenth-century citron morocco, triple ruled in gilt on both panels, spine flat and gilt in an ovoid pattern, brown morocco lettering piece, gilt turn-ins. Housed in a cloth slipcase. With the shelfmark of Lord Bertram Ashburnham, who established one of the largest private English manuscript collections, booklabel of Édouard Rahir, noted antiquarian bookseller and publisher, and the monogram of Otto Schäfer, the German industrialist and bibliophile.

        POLYHISTOR, RERUM TOTO ORBE MEMORABILIUM THESAURUS LOCUPLETISSIMUS

      Basel: Michael Isingrin, 1543.. [20],230,[2]pp. plus two folding maps and eighteen in- text maps. Woodcut vignette on titlepage and final leaf. Folio. 18th- century three-quarter calf and patterned paper boards, spine gilt, morocco label. Boards a bit bowed, spine slightly wormed. A few leaves very lightly tanned, two small worm holes in outer margin of final four leaves. Very good. Second edition, after the first of 1538. A landmark in the mapping of North America, this collection of geographic accounts, edited by Sebastian Münster, contains "the earliest representation of the north-west coast of America on a printed map" (Burden). It takes the form of a land mass in the upper right corner of the folding "Asia Major" map, extending northwest, labeled "Terra Incognita," and shown with a small bay, trees, and hills. The cartographer of the map is unidentified, though Wagner asserts that it was drawn by Münster. Julius Solinus (ca. 250 A.D.) was a Roman geographer of some repute. His POLYHISTOR... was first published by Nicholas Jenson in Venice in 1473, and Isingrin&#39;s edition of 1538 was the first to contain maps by Münster. Münster also added notes to the text containing up-to- date geographic information. Burden further notes that the Asia Major map shows one of the first delineations of a strait between Asia and America, some two hundred years before Bering&#39;s voyages to the region. It is also the first work to include a printed map of Asia as a whole. A significant work of geography, containing a seminal image of the northwest coast of North America. BURDEN 11.

        The Grounde of Artes: teaching the work and practise of arithmetike, bothe in whole numbers and fractions, after a more easyer and exacter sorte than any like hath hitherto bin sette foorthe ... And now of late diligently ouerseene and augmented with new and necessarie additions. I.D. [John Dee].London: John Harison, 1579.

      A very rare and early edition of 'the first commercial arithmetic of any note used in the English schools' (Smith), by 'the founder of the English school of mathematical writers' (DSB). Only one other complete copy of this issue is known (see below). All sixteenth-century editions of this book are rare.<br/><br/> 'Recorde is primarily remembered for his mathematical texts. His first publication was his most basic and popular, The Grounde of Artes (1543), an elementary introduction to arithmetic written in dialogue form. After several reissues, the book was enlarged in 1552 with a new dedication to Edward VI which draws on Recorde's mint experience ... After Recorde's death the Grounde was edited first by John Dee and then by a string of successors, passing through at least forty-five editions up to 1699 ... Recorde's works were intended as an accessible and readable introduction to mathematics, rather than a repository of elevated or novel results. His preferred dialogue form and choice of the vernacular were meant to render a previously forbidding subject familiar to all, especially those unskilful in Latin. His concern with pedagogical order and his own experience of teaching led him to emphasize the presentation of propositions over the proof of their validity; he believed that students could more readily grasp the subject if the exposition of results was separated from demonstration' (ODNB). <br/><br/> "The first edition (1543) dealt only with whole numbers, covering the fundamental operations, reduction, progression, golden rule and counter reckoning. In 1552 it was enlarged to include the same operations with fractions, and false position and alligation" (DSB). The first edition edited by Dee appeared in 1561, three years after Recorde's death. Initially he made few changes, but in 1570 he added two sections on foreign exchange after Recorde's final section on false position. The first gives "The Valuation of Englishe, Flemishe and French mony, and how each of them may ne brought to other value"; the second, "The equalitie or valuation, weyghtes, and measures of sundry Countries and towns", compares the widely varying standards of length and weight of some 15 English and Continental towns. Further discussion of commercial practice appeared in editions prepared by other editors from 1582 onwards. <br/><br/> The Grounde of Artes was the first of a series of mathematical books which were published in the order in which Recorde intended them to be studied. It was followed by The Pathway to Knowledge (1551), a translation and rearrangement of the first four books of Euclid's Elements; The Castle of Knowledge (1556), an elementary Ptolemaic astronomy with brief references to Copernicus; and The Whetstone of Witte, which treats elementary algebra through quadratic equations. "In England,... his books remained the standard texts throughout the Elizabethan period. A generation of English scientists, especially the non-university men, stated that Recorde's books had been their first tutors in the mathematical sciences. The excellence of the English school of mathematical practitioners, fostered by growing geographical interests, has been attributed to the high quality of the vernacular movement in applied science begun by Recorde" (ibid.). <br/><br/> There are two variants of this edition. Both have the colophon with the joint imprint of Henry Binneman and Harison, and the date 1577; the other variant has Binneman's name only on the title-page. Only one other complete copy of the present issue is known (Princeton); BL holds a 'copy' with the title leaf only. Three copies of the other issue are recorded: Columbia, National Library of Wales, and UCL (imperfect). Remarking on the date at the colophon, Smith states 'this is therefore one of the cases where a large edition was printed, and a new title-page was added from year to year as necessary. This [Binneman] edition is more rare than the date would suggest.' Binneman and Harison first issued the book in 1575, and again in 1582, but no edition of 1577 is recorded. <br/><br/> Provenance: Contemporary ownership inscription of Matth. Francis, and a curious 17th-century inscription on rear end leaf 'Man was not born for himself but for service of gods John Aldersey Not his Booke April'. <br/><br/> DSB XI, 338-9; ESTC 20801.7; Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p. 217 (for the Binneman issue). For an account of the evolution of the text see J. B. Easton, 'The Early Editions of Robert Recorde's Ground of Artes,' in Isis, 58 (1967), 515-532.. Small 8vo, pp. [502], with woodcut initials, one full-page woodcut illustration, numerous diagrams and complex typesetting in the text, woodcut printer's device at colophon (see below). Contemporary blind-panelled calf, fleurons at corners (traces of gilt), central medallion, remains of ties, endleaves of printer's waste (the front endpapers are a bifolium from Thomas Becon's Reliques of Rome (John Daye, 1561), the rear endpapers are an unidentified rubricated Latin text) (binding worn, small piece missing from head of spine and top outer corner of lower cover, lacking final blank, some damp-staining and soiling, a couple of gatherings misbound). A very good, unsophisticated copy, untouched in its original binding
