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.

Rare edition of the 3rd century historian's account the chaotic period immediately following Marcus Aurelius' death through the brief reign of Gordianus III. The scholarly printer of Basle, Henricus Petrus, had first printed Herodian's text in 1535, with the Latin translation by Poliziano; but here, clearly with an eye on the student market, the text is set in parallel columns: Greek on the left, with the Latin "trot" on the right.

      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).
