COPERNICUS, Nicolaus.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

RECORD, Robert. [RECORDE, DEE, John (Ed.)]
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 en … [Click Below for Full Description]

Euclid
[Vinegia (i.e. Venice): Venturio Rossinelli ad instantia e requisitione de Guilielmo de Monferra, & de Pietro di Facolo da Vinegia libraro, 1543. [Vinegia (i.e. Venice): Venturio Rossinelli ad instantia e requisitione de Guilielmo de Monferra, & de Pietro di Facolo da Vinegia libraro, 1543. First edition in Italian and first edition in a modern language, folio, 242 leaves, large woodcut device on colophon and on verso of final leaf; woodcut arms on title page; geometrical woodcut diagrams in the margins throughout; a good, complete copy in dirty old vellum, recased in the 19th century, with extensive paper repair to margins of the title-p. and following leaf, also with paper repairs to corners of a number of pages throughout; some leaves washed. The translation and commentary is by Niccolo Tartaglia, one of the most noted mathematicians of the 16th century who here has added his own preface, commentary and eulogy on the utility of mathematics. According to Stillman Drake, Galileo at Work, pp. 2-4, it is probably this translation that was used by Galileo. "Tartaglia's Italian translation of Euclid - the first published translation of the Elements into any living language of Europe - was an event of great importance to the progress of mathematics, and indeed of all applied sciences. For the first time the principal treasury of rigorous mathematical reasoning was open to men who knew neither Greek nor Latin. The implications of that event for the science of mechanics were great because literacy in Europe was very high, especially among engineers and artisans" (Drake & Drabkin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contarini, Ambrogio:
Venice. 1543. - 40 leaves. 12mo. Modern half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt. Occasional very minor spots, some leaves expertly restored in lower margin, not affecting text. Leaf C3 bound before C2, leaf C6 bound before C7. A very good copy. The rare third edition of Contarini's account of his travels from Venice to Persia and Russia between 1473 and 1477. A member of a prominent Venetian family, the author was delegated by the republic, which at the time was at war with Mahomet II, to travel to the court of Hussum Hasan Bey, the sovereign of Persia. The purpose was to encourage that ruler to continue to wage war against the Ottomans, who were threatening Venetian interests in the Middle East and Europe. Unable to travel by sea, Contarini traveled by land through Poland to the Crimea, crossing the Black Sea and continuing to his destination through Mingrelia and Armenia. "Contarini encountered Hussum Hasan at Esfahan, accompanied him to Tabriz, and then returned homeward by way of Derbent and the Caspian Sea to Astrakhen. From there he ascended the Volga to Moscow, where he was politely received by the grand-duke of Muscovy. Contarini returned to Venice in 1477" - Howgego. First published in 1487, a second edition followed in 1524. In addition to this 1543 edition, the account was reprinted the same year with that of the Venetian traveler, Josafa Barbara. Confirming continuing interest in Contarini's travels throughout the Renaissance, the account was also included by Ramusio in his great collection of voyages and travels published between 1550 and 1559, and Antonio … [Click Below for Full Description]

FULVIO, Andrea; ROME
1543. ROME. Opera di Andrea Fulvio delle antichità della Città di Roma, & delli edificij memorabili di quella. Tradotta nuovamente di latino in lingua toscana, per Paulo dal Rosso cittadino Fiorentino. By Andrea Fulvio. 224, [8] ff. Small 8vo., 155 x 110 mm, bound in later full Italian vellum, title in manuscript on spine. Venezia: Michele Tramezino, 1543. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition in the vernacular of this important, early history of the city of Rome, translated from Fulvio's Latin edition of 1513. Fulvio's account of Rome, the classical antiquities, the private collections and the buildings as they survived at the beginning of the 1500s, is of the greatest historical significance. Fulvio's observations are recorded with a humanist's critical eye. The descriptions of private collections in Rome include the antiquities collection of Angelo Colocci and the numismatic collection of Cardinal Andrea Della Valle. The work has also been cited as the first true antiquarian topography of Rome. "Fulvius published the work under the guidance and instigation of Raphael, who had been charged by Pope Leo X to undertake a pictorial reconstruction of Ancient Rome. Fulvio was a friend of Raphael, Blondus and Laetus" (Kissner Catalogue 153). Andrea Fulvio (1470 - 1527), a Renaissance humanist, poet and antiquarian of Rome, advised Raphael in the reconstructions of ancient Rome and as possible settings for his frescoes. Fulvio was Raphael's cicerone as they explored the ruins of Rome, Fulvio showing Raphael what was essential to be drawn and extemporizing on them (cf: Bette Talvacchia, i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Galen
VENETIIS ex officina Farrea, 1543. Bound in early vellum. No writing on the cover or spine. Fore-edges decorated with red and brown (probably faded black) decorations. No other ornamentation. Blank endpaper and another blank page at the front. The first numbered page is 177. Numbers continue in sequence (both recto and verso numbered) to page 624. Then the numbering skips to page 707 and continues to page 1052. The text ends on page 1052 and there is a colophon that reads: a b c d e f g h i k l m n o p q r s t u v x y z aa bb cc dd ee ff gg hh ii kk ll mm nn oo pp qq rr ss tt uu xx yy zz aaa bbb ccc ddd eee fff ggg hhh iii kkk lll mmm nnn ooo ppp qqq rrr sss ttt uuu Quaterniones omnes VENETIIS ex officina Farrea. MDXLIII. There is a final blank page. From the decorations on the fore-edges, it is clear this book was bound as-is, with pages missing. It is not a damaged or depleted book, but something that was bound together in this form. Extensive and expert restoration is evident in several places: repaired pages (both tattered corners and tears at the gutter), rebacking, probable resewing, as well as the decorative work on the fore-edges. The endpapers are a different paper than the text. The rear free endpaper contains a partial watermark, of a crown. The text block is backed with a page printed in Latin (visible when you look behind the spine). The fact that itÂ’s a case binding and not a tight spine suggest that the binding is from the eighteenth century. Writings of Galen on many subjects.

CORROZET, GILLES
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'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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contarini, Ambrogio:
Venice. 1543.. 40 leaves. 12mo. Modern half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt. Occasional very minor spots, some leaves expertly restored in lower margin, not affecting text. Leaf C3 bound before C2, leaf C7 bound before C6. A very good copy. The rare third edition of Contarini's account of his travels from Venice to Persia and Russia between 1473 and 1477. A member of a prominent Venetian family, the author was delegated by the republic, which at the time was at war with Mahomet II, to travel to the court of Hussum Hasan Bey, the sovereign of Persia. The purpose was to encourage that ruler to continue to wage war against the Ottomans, who were threatening Venetian interests in the Middle East and Europe. Unable to travel by sea, Contarini traveled by land through Poland to the Crimea, crossing the Black Sea and continuing to his destination through Mingrelia and Armenia. "Contarini encountered Hussum Hasan at Esfahan, accompanied him to Tabriz, and then returned homeward by way of Derbent and the Caspian Sea to Astrakhen. From there he ascended the Volga to Moscow, where he was politely received by the grand-duke of Muscovy. Contarini returned to Venice in 1477" - Howgego. First published in 1487, a second edition followed in 1524. In addition to this 1543 edition, the account was reprinted the same year with that of the Venetian traveler, Josafa Barbara. Confirming continuing interest in Contarini's travels throughout the Renaissance, the account was also included by Ramusio in his great collection of voyages and travels published between 1550 and 1559, and Antonio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Solinus, C. Julius:
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'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'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.

(Colophon: Venice, Venturino Rossenelli, 1543). Folio. (30,5x22 cm.). Contemporary full Italian limp vellum. Remains of ties. Old handwritten title on spine. Upper part of frontcover slightly creased. A few small nicks to hinges at cords. Vellum with brownspots. 242 leaves (2-241 numb. II-CCXXXIX). Misnumbering of leaves in sign. A (10 lvs.), due to the insertion of corrections on f A5. (Collation corresponds to that given by Thomas-Stanford No. 34). Large margins profusely illustrated with diagrams. Upper right corner of title gone with loss of of 3 letters "NSE" in MEGARENSE, f A2-A6 with upper right corners and a wormtract-hole in lower margin repaired. A wormtract in lower margin on the next 11 lvs. A1-A6 mounted skillfully on thin opaque parchment-paper. A rather faint dampstain in upper right corner throughout. Last 5 leaves with a small nick in right margin, no loss. Otherwise remarkable clean and printed on good strong paper. On the title a large woodcut device with arms with G.T. (Gabriele Tadino, to whom the work is dedicated). Colophon with large woodcut device with the letters .P.Z.F. and this repeated on verso of last leaf. Scarce first edition of the first translation of Euclid in any modern language by the famous Niccolo Tartaglia. The translation and Tartaglia's commentaries, strongly accelerated the development of physics and mechanics in the 16th century, as it showed how mathematics could be applied to dynamics and mechanics as well as to architecture, construction and perspective.
