        Genio con alfabeto

      Bulino, 1544, 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, 1544, 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 229, Pauli 233 II/III. Dim.70x43.

        Il Fenestella d'i Sacerdotii, e d'i Magistrati romani tradotto di latino alla lingua Toscana, Al Magnifico M. Angelo Motta?

      Appresso Gabriel Giolito di Ferrarii 1544 Cm. 15, cc. 43 (1). Marchio tipografico giolitino al frontespizio e molti capolettera figurati. Perfetta legatura coeva in pergamena floscia con laccetti di chiusura miracolosamente intatti. Titoli manoscritti al doso. Esemplare in perfetto stato di conservazione. Prima edizione in volgare (di Francesco Sansovino) di questa dissertazione del Fiocco sui sacerdoti ed i magistrati dell'antica Roma. Cfr. Bongi (I 75-76): "Questo libretto, che dal suo vero autore Domenico Fiocco... si finse composto dal latino Fenestella mille anni prima, fu tradotto da Francesco Sansovino". Andrea Domenico Fiocco, giureconsulto e umanista fiorentino morto nel 1452, usò nei suoi scritti lo pseudonimo di Lucius Fenestella. Caratteristica assai interessante di quest'edizione è la quantità di capolettera (ben 42!) che illustrano prevalentemente professioni ed attività, tra cui vi è la celebre raffigurazione dell'antico tennis.

        Furmalung und kunstlich beschreibung der horologien, nemlich wie man der sonnen vren mit mancherley weys und form, und auff allerley gattung entwerffen soll an die mauren

      Basel: Heinrich Peter, 1544. Small folio. (11 1/2 x 7 5/8 inches). [7],clxvi,[1]pp. Two plates. Illustrated with more than sixty in-text woodcut diagrams. Printer's device on verso of final leaf. (The two plates chipped along the fore-edge with minor losses affecting some of the numbering). Expertly bound to style in period vellum. Housed in a black morocco backed box. Early edition of a noted mid-16th century work on sundials and horology. Second German-language edition, following the first edition printed in Basel in 1531 (in Latin) and the first German-language edition of 1537. This is Munster's revision of his significant work on sundials and horology. The text is illustrated with many woodcuts of sundials, measuring devices, and quadrants, some of them attributed to Hans Holbein the Younger. This edition appeared the same year as Munster's famed Cosmographia. This copy is especially interesting for the three early ownership inscriptions on the titlepage, as well as two pages of manuscript diagrams and four pages of manuscript notes that follow the text. One signature on the titlepage, written below the printer's name, is dated 1566 and appears to read "Egodolf." Immediately below it is the undated ownership signature "Ex libris Blasij Dasner." At the top of the titlepage is a manuscript note showing that this volume was in the possession of the monastery "Rhenoriensis" in 1631, under the Abbot Eberhard. Rheinau Abbey (also known as Kloster Rheinau), a Benedictine monastery in the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland, was founded in about 778 and suppressed in 1862. The two full-page manuscript diagrams and four pages of manuscript text at the end deal with the subject of Muenster's work, sundials and problems of solar declination and hour ascension, and their use on different dates and in different latitudes. The diagrams and manuscript notes consider problems that have been taken from Munster's text. A part of the manuscript is in the form of questions and answers. The first page of manuscript notes contains a diagram of a hand holding a stick, and was a common horological tool of the time. OCLC locates only six copies of this 1544 edition, with only two of them (Harvard and Folger Shakespeare Library) in the United States. Brunet 1944-1945; Burmeister 52.

        Opera, quæ quidem extant, omnia, multis iam seculis desiderata, atque à quàm paucissimis hactenus uisa, cuncque primùm & Graecis & Latine in lucem edita. Quorum Catalogum uersa pagina reperies. Adiecta quoque sunt Eutocii Ascalonitae in eosdem Archimedis Libros Commentaria, item Graecè & Latinè, nuquam antea excusa. [i.e. Archimedes' Opera, both the Greek and the Latin text + Eutocius of Ascalon's commentary, in both Greek and Latin].

      Basel, Johannes Hervagius, 1544. Folio. (30,5 x 21 cm.). A very handsome set of both volumes, the Latin being in a very nice a bit later full vellum binding with visible bands and handwritten title to spine, the Greek being in an excellently executed recent binding to match, in all making up a very desireable and lovely set. [Greek part:] (8), 139; (4), 65, (3) pp. incl. the last blank. Many woodcut diagrams throughout, and a fine woodcut initial to each section. Title-page with 2 small stamps, and a stamp on verso of title-page. The first 4 leaves very lightly browned, occasionally very light marginal browning. One leaf with loss of a small portion of lower right corner, no loss of text. Otherwise very nice and clean. [Latin part:] (8), 163, (1); 68, (4) pp. Many woodcut diagrams throughout, and a fine woodcut intial to each section. Title-page with old ex-libris-inscription: "Dom. prof. Rom. Soc. Jesu. Catal. miseris. Bibliot. Comun." in neat hand. The first ab. 6 leaves with a dampstain to lower blank corner, not affecting text. A bit of brownspotting throughout, mostly very light, and mostly marginal. The Eutochius-section (last 68 pp.) with a bit more brownspotting. This section is marked with an old vellum-strip, indicating where it begins. All in all very nice.. The seminal editio princeps of Archimedes' Opera, constituting the first edition of the original Greek text and the first edition of the Latin text, as well as the first printing of Eutocius' highly important commentaries, also in both Greek and Latin. The magnificent Archmedian princeps constitutes a Renaissance magnum opus that profoundly influenced the development of mathematical thought as well as the Renaissance and early modern concepts and understanding of the universe. It is in the present publication that we find the first printed statement of the Heliocentric world picture."[i]t was not until the late sixteenth century, then increasingly in the seventeenth, that Archimedes' mathematical work began to have formative influence on the development of mathematics.Of exceptional significance for the beginnings of this modern European inheritance and handing-on of the Archimedes legacy were the first edition ("editio princeps"), in 1544, of an almost complete Greek and Latin Archimedes text based on Codex A, with Latin text by Jacob Cremona". (Grattan-Guinness, p. 183) Both parts, i.e. both the Greek and Latin, were printed by Hervagius in Basle, 1544. The edition is edited by Thomas Geschauff, also called Venatorius. Including the Greek text as well as the Latin translation of both Archimedes' text and the highly important commentaries of Eutocios of Ascalon (ab. 500 A.D.), this publication is a cornerstone in the history of Western thought, marking the beginning of the Archimedean renaissance. No incunable-edition of the work of Archimedes appeared, and the present edition is only preceded by small Latin selections from his works in 1503 and 1543. Archimedes, by Plinius called "the God of mathematics", is arguably the greatest mathematician, physicist and engineer of ancient times and one of the greatest geniuses of all times. "There is no one individual whose work epitomizes the character of the Alexandrian age so well as Archimedes (287-212 B.C), the greatest mathematician in antiquity". (Morris Kline). "He gave birth to the calculus of the infinite conceived and brought to perfection successively by Kepler, Cavalieri, Fermat, Leibnitz, and Newton." (Chasles).With the commentaries of Eutocius, Renaissance thinkers read and understood the works of the Great Archimedes, and one dare say that these commentaries influenced the Renaissance as much as Archimedes' work itself. Had it not been for Eutocius' commentaries, we might not have extant all that we have of Aristotle, and it is no coincidence that these commentaries have followed almost all editions of Archimedes ever since their first appearance in print, in 1544. "The accompanying commentaries by Eutocius, still extant, had an effect on the history of mathematics. They contain not only cross-references to Greek geometry, but also exhaustive comments on Archimedes' calculation of circles. It was these that opened an early door to Archimedes' work and then, centuries later, influenced the work of Western scholars such as Niclas of Cusa, Leonardo da Vinci, the Abbot Francesco Maurolico and Niccolò Tartaglia." (Grattan-Guinness p. 181).Eutocius' commentaries are of seminal importance to the history of mathematics, his "examples of long multiplication in his commentary on the "Measurement of a Circle" are the best available evidence of the way in which the Greek handled such operations, and he preserves solutions of mathematical problems by the earlier Greek geometers that are sometimes the sole evidence for their existence and are therefore of major importance for the historian of mathematics. It is through Eutocius that we have a valuable collection of solutions by Greek geometers of the problem of finding two mean proportions to two given straight lines..." (D.S.B. IV:489)."All the books by Archimedes on which Eutocius commented have survived, and his elucidations may have contributed to their survival. [...] His commentaries on Archimedes were translated into Latin along with the parent works of William of Moerbeke in 1269. The commentaries have usually been printed with the editions of Archimedes and Apollonius and have never been printed separately." (D.S.B. IV:491). The influence of Archimedes' work can hardly be over-estimated. He was the first to formulate what can genuinely be called physical laws: "Law of the Lever" and "Law of floating bodies." - "in fact, from all of physics before Simon Stevin (1548-1650), the only "basic" achievements which have textbook status nowadays are the two laws by Archimedes." (Salomon Bochner).In Mechanics, he worked out the principles of the subject, and he was the first to apply geometry to physical science. In geometry, his works consist in the main of original investigations, beginning where Euclid left off. In fact, he performed what is equivalent to integration, in finding the area of a parabolic segment, and of a spiral, the surface and volume of a sphere and a segment etc. He also invented the whole science of Hydrastatics. "This represents a sum of mathematical achievements unsurpassed by any man in the world's history" (Thomas Heath) - "There was hardly a field of mathematics (including approximation mathematics and numerical analysis) to which he did not contribute something exceptionally ingenious and original. His work in higher mathematics was almost two thousand years ahead of his time and was fully appreciated only in the nineteenth century." (Cornelius Lanczos).Among the 7 works contained in the Archimedian Princeps we have also the famous "Sand Reckoner" (Psammites, Arenarius) dedicated to King Gelon, in which an extremely large number is introduced in arithmetic. "How many grains of sand could the whole universe hold?" - a work which also contains THE FIRST PRINTED STATEMENT of the Heliocentric world picture, the COPERNICAN THEORY OF THE UNIVERSE with the sun in the centre and the planets and the earth revolving around it, a theory first put forward by Aristarchus in a lost work and here (in the "Sand Reckoner") referred to by Archimedes: "Aristarchus brought out a book consisting of certain hypotheses, wherein it appears, as a consequence of the assumptions made, that the universe is many times greater than the "universe" just mentioned (the common conception). His hypotheses are that the fixed stars and the sun remain unmoved, that the earth revolves about the sun in the circumference of a circle, the sun lying in the middle of the orbit, and that the fixed stars, situated about the same centre as the sun, is so great that the circle in which he supposes the earth to revolve bears a proportion to the distance of the fixed stars as the centre of the sphere bears to its surface" (Heath's translation). - "The Sand Reckoner" (De arenae numero, Psammites, Arenarius) had also not been printed before.Smith, Rara Arithmetica p. 227 - Dibner, Heralds..No 137 - Printing and the Mind of Man No 72 - Sparrow, Milestones of Science No 9 - Adams A-1531 - Stillwell No 140 (both Greek and Latin translation)
