        Supplementum ephemeridum, ac tabularum secundorum mobilium, Io. Antonii Magini ... in quo habentur ratio, & methodus perfacilis promptissimè supputandi verum motum Solis, Lunae, & Martis ex nouis tabulis secundum Tychonicas obseruationes, nunc primum accuratè constructis...Venice: Damiano Zenari, 1614.

      Very rare first edition, containing the first published tables of Martian positions calculated upon Keplerian principles (Voelkel & Gingerich, 240), anticipating by 13 years the publication of Kepler's own computational method in the <i>Tabulae Rudolphinae</i>. "The examination of Magini's 'Keplerian' tables offers a new and interesting insight into the early reception of Keplerian astronomy. For here, as though stuck in amber, we have a record of the moment in time during which one of Europe's leading astronomers was first coming to grips with a very odd but ultimately very significant new theory [i.e. that published in the <i>Astronomia nova</i>]" (<i>ibid</i>., 238). The work also contains the first printing of four letters each between Kepler and Magini which illuminate Magini's ultimately unsuccessful attempts to obtain Kepler's own tables.<br/><br/> "Giovanni Antonio Magini (1555-1617) is today best known as the man who in 1588 received the chair in astronomy at Bologna, a post coveted by the younger Galileo. To his contemporaries, he was known as an indefatigable calculator of mathematical tables and astronomical ephemerides... In mid-January of 1610 Magini wrote to Kepler that he had managed to see a copy of the new <i>Astronomia nova</i> in the hands of a local Bolognese bookseller, but that he had been able to examine it for only a single day because the book was reserved for a Venetian nobleman. Magini, the maker and lover of tables, had zeroed in on the book's only two-page table, in which Kepler had calculated the equation of centre and distances for the Sun using his bisected equant theory. This was one of the <i>Astronomia nova</i>'s most important innovations, but Magini seemed less impressed by the table's novelty than by the fact that Kepler had calculated it for a slightly rounded eccentricity, 0.018, rather than the more precise 0.01792. Thus the correspondence got off to a somewhat brittle start, and in response Kepler ignored the hint for a complementary copy of the book, "The emperor took charge of the distribution of the book to mathematicians," Kepler replied, "so I was obliged to sell every last copy to a bookseller in order to feed my family. Copies of the book can be bought in Prague for 3 florins" [letter of 1 February, 1610, p. 259 of the present work]" (<i>ibid</i>., 240-1).<br/><br/> "But what Magini wanted even more than a copy of the <i>Astronomia nova</i> were Kepler's tables of equations and distances for the other planets, and he repeated his desire in a letter of 23 February 1610 [printed on pp. 260-61 in the present work]. Kepler parried the request, saying the tables were not quite ready. He countered with his own proposal for Magini to come to Prague to help compute the new ephemerides. In his response, the 55-year-old Magini explained why he could not come to Prague: his age, health and teaching responsibilities did not permit such a long and hazardous journey, and besides, he preferred the Italian climate to warm stoves and German beer. In closing, he asked for Kepler's opinion on Galileo's four new companions to Jupiter. In reply, Kepler sent a copy of his <i>Dissertatio cum Nuncio siderio</i>. At the end of the letter, after discussing further the computation of ephemerides, he remarked on his sympathetic treatment of Galileo, explaining, "We are both Copernicans"" (<i>ibid</i>., 242). In the printed version of this letter (pp. 262-3 of the present work), this last statement was excised. "Magini surely noted that Kepler was carrying out the logical sequence of Copernicus' heliocentrism in treating the Earth as another of the planets, all with similar geometrical attributes, but he gave no hint that he ever entertained any doubts regarding his own firm allegiance to geocentrism" (<i>ibid</i>, 257). <br/><br/> "With this letter the brief but intense correspondence was over, leaving Magini on his own to establish the equations and distances for the planets. Four years later the <i>Supplementum ephemeridum</i> was published... In the main text of his <i>Supplementum</i>, Magini gives detailed examples for three methods of calculating the longitude of Mars... The first method proves to be the most intriguing part of the whole book, for in it Magini introduces four important innovations from Kepler's <i>Astronomia nova</i>. Just as interesting as what Magini uses is the contribution he ignores: Kepler's law of areas. <br/><br/> "Canon 10 of Magini's <i>Supplementum</i> gives instructions for calculating the position of Mars "according to Tycho's and Kepler's hypotheses and observations". The only Keplerian planetary theories available to Magini when compiling his new tables were the new theory of Mars and the attendant new theory of the Earth's motion, the two major topics of the <i>Astronomia nova</i>. From the layout of the calculation, it is immediately apparent that Magini has anticipated one of the major innovations of the <i>Rudolphine Tables</i>. Rather than treating the calculation of a planet's position as an isolated operation, Magini calculates the heliocentric longitude and distance of Mars and the geocentric longitude and distance of the Sun separately and then combines them to yield Mars's geocentric position" (<i>ibid</i>., 243-4). <br/><br/> Voelkel & Gingerich explain in detail how Magini calculated his tables, and show that they are remarkably accurate. "As he pored over Kepler's pages, he cobbled together an empirical, geometrically inconsistent computational procedure that worked brilliantly-but how successfully neither he nor his contemporaries knew, and in fact, no one seems to have known until the researches reported here" (<i>ibid</i>., 257). Successful or not, Kepler was not impressed. "Kepler seems to have been somewhat irked that Magini stole his thunder by publishing tables based on the theoretical advances of the <i>Astronomia nova</i> before he himself was able to publish the <i>Rudolphine Tables</i>. He remarked in its preface: "Moreover, when eight years after the death of Tycho, I published my aforementioned <i>Commentaries on the motions of the planet Mars...</i> [i.e. <i>Astronomia nova</i>], Magini, impatient with delays, used the foundations laid by me in that work and computed the tables of the prosthaphaereses of Mars, but in the usual form, and he made them a part of his supplement... [i.e. the present work]. Thus, for a long time now everyone has been adding to his own boat the tables taken from the shipwreck of Brahean astronomy" (quoted in <i>ibid</i>., 258). <br/><br/> Caspar 46; Houzeau & Lancaster 15036; Riccardi II.70; cf.

        Untitled World Map

      Venice: Antonio Floriano, 1555. 2 sheets, joined (21 4/8 x 34 4/8 inches). Fine engraved double-hemisphere map constructed on a polar projections, with each hemisphere cut into thirty-six gores, in the manner of printed globes. In 1555, the Venetian Senate granted Antonio Floriano of Udine a privilege (the Renaissance equivalent of a copyright) to publish this map of the world. In his application to the Senate, Floriano wrote that he had used his "diligence and knowledge" to create "a mappemonde which has never been made before, with the aid of which one can easily study and learn cosmography and see the entire picture of the world, since it can be reduced to spheric form." Dramatically, Floriano wrote that the map had caused him "so much drudgery and sweat," such "heavy toil," that it defied the imagination. The result of Floriano&#39;s labor was this unique world map, which shows not the eastern and western hemispheres--later one of the most popular formats for world maps--but rather the northern and southern hemispheres, with the earth shown as if bisected at the Equator. In yet another graphic innovation, Floriano divided each hemisphere into thirty-six curving triangular segments meant to imitate globe gores: the sections that, when joined at the edges, generated the spherical form. Floriano&#39;s gores each encompass ten degrees of longitude (hence thirty-six of them, for a total of 360 degrees). Floriano&#39;s intriguing map bears no title, location or date, and two cartouches at top and bottom that were clearly meant to contain text were left incomplete. Although there is no record of a publication date, Floriano&#39;s petition to the Senate from early 1555 makes it quite likely that the map appeared the same year. Whatever mystery surrounds the exact circumstances of its publication, the map&#39;s refinement is beyond doubt. Floriano&#39;s "mappemonde" is finely engraved and splendidly ornamented. The geographical information was gleaned from Gerard Mercator&#39;s landmark world map of 1538, including the place names as well as forms. The projection, too, was identical to Mercator&#39;s. Floriano shows the Americas as being entirely separate from Asia, and divided into two labeled continents, north and south. A massive sheet of ice occupies the Arctic, while an enormous landmass covers the South Pole, centuries before the discovery of Antarctica. This example of Floriano&#39;s map is in excellent condition, with handsome examples of decorative strapwork and circular portraits of Ptolemy and Floriano in the top corners. Very few examples of Floriano&#39;s map were issued in the sixteenth century and many fewer survive today. It is legendary for its rarity. This represents a singular opportunity to obtain a striking and unusual map by a prominent Venetian cartographer. Rodney W.

        Les observations de plusieurs singularitez et choses memorables , trouvees en Grece, Asie, Indée, Egypte, Arabie & autres pays estranges

      Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1555. Small octavo, with title-page bearing striking printer&#39;s device, three maps including double-page plan of Mt. Sinai, finely executed woodblock illustrations; first few gatherings mildly water-stained with minute worming, small localised loss to the bottom edge of six gatherings (s-z), yet a most attractive copy in eighteenth-century sprinkled calf, spine gilt in panels with red label. Exotica, real and imaginary. One of the first explorer-naturalists: Pierre Belon&#39;s near-eastern travels in a beautifully printed account. Belon, a physician and naturalist best remembered for his work as a comparative anatomist and master of dissection, undertook long voyages through Egypt, Arabia, the Levant, Greece and Asia Minor between 1546 and 1550. He was a careful and meticulous observer who &#39;can be considered the originator of comparative anatomy&hellip; he enriched the biological sciences by new observations and contributed greatly to the progress of the natural sciences in the sixteenth century.&#39; (DSB). Les observations de plusieurs singularitez et choses memorables is a rich travel narrative, combining natural history detail with descriptions of the curious customs, costumes and history of the peoples Belon encountered on his travels. The work includes a fascinating diversity of material reflecting the author&#39;s innate curiosity, including chapters on the ancient labyrinths of Crete, opium cultivation and use in Turkey, the daily lives of children and the flooding of the Nile. Donald Lach described it as &#39;one of the most readable travelogues to appear in the sixteenth century&#39;. Belon had travelled to the east as a member of a diplomatic mission that also included the archaeologist Pierre Giles, and later Guillaume Postel the early arabist as well as the royal cosmographers André Thevet and Nicolas de Nicolay. Together the books published by this remarkably gifted group of travellers provided the west with a compendium of information on the near east that was at the same time exotic and closely observed. Inevitably some fantasy crept in to their observations, and the exotic depictions and descriptions - whether of a giraffe or a chameleon from direct observation, or a gryphon or dragon surviving from mythology - show us the creatures that excited great interest at the time, and clearly especially appealed to the mapmakers since they can often be found in early maps inhabiting the dangerous edges of a world not yet fully discovered. The second edition published in Antwerp by Christopher Plantin in 1555, this typified the printing for which Plantin is renowned. Although small octavo in format, the composition is spacious, combining elegant cursive type and decorated capitals with sharp, neat impressions of the fine woodblock illustrations.

        Tabulae novae iuxta Tychonis rationes elaboratae quibus directionum conficiendar[um] brevior quam unquam antehac a nemine ars traditur.Bologna: Sebastiano Bonomo, 1619.

      Rare first edition of Magini's modified Tychonic cosmological system and the new astronomical tables he calculated based upon it. Magini (1555-1617) is today best known as the man who in 1588 received the chair in astronomy at Bologna, a post coveted by the younger Galileo. "Within the boundaries of his Ptolomaicism, Magini drew up complex theories, among them the multiplication of Ptolomaic spheres and orbits, and also performed some useful calculations. He was, in fact, much more skilled in calculation than in theory, and his ephemerides remained valid for a long time" (DSB).<br/><br/> Although Magini endorsed the unprecedented accuracy of Copernicus's calculation of celestial movements, he never accepted the Copernican system from a philosophical standpoint. In the preface to his <i>Novae coelestium orbium theoricae</i> he wrote: 'there is a general desire for some one who would systematize the motions of the heavenly bodies, in agreement with the latest observations, not according to the absurd hypotheses such as Copernicus contrived, but according to such as should seem less repugnant to truth.' <br/><br/> Magini was introduced to Tycho's theories after meeting Tycho's assistant Gellius Sascerides in Bologna in 1589, the same year in which <i>Novae coelestium</i> was published. Tycho sent autographed copies of his printed works for Gellius to present as gifts to Magini, and soon the two men were corresponding directly. This led Magini to develop a new cosmological system based upon Tycho's. "[Magini] later adopted the cosmological system of Brahe, with whom he established a relationship of both friendship and scientific collaboration. However, he modified the Tychonic system with elements from Kepler's astronomy. Magini defined his new theory in the <i>Tabulae novae iuxta Tychonis rationes elaboratae...</i>" (<i>Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers</i>, 725). The work was unfinished at his death and was published posthumously by his student Antonius Roncho. <br/><br/> Houzeau & Lancaster 12752; Riccardi II 70.

        I tre libri di Messer Giovan Battista Susio, della ingiustitia del duello, et di coloro, che lo permettono. Con la tavola delle cose piu notabili

      Vinegia: Apresso G. Giolito de Ferrari, et Fratelli, 1555 - An important and beautifully printed attack on the practice of duelling which has become quite rare on the market (whereas the second edition of 1558 shows up with some frequency). Thimm, who had never seen a copy himself, refers to one in "Captain Hutton's Collection" and calls for a folding plate -- in obvious error, for among the 10 copies located by OCLC in institutions, not one contains any plates; nor did the one dampstained copy which appeared at auction in 1996 (and which was mistakenly presumed to be incomplete). Susio (1519-1583), Renaissance man of letters, eminent physician, humanist, and poet, dedicates his book to Henry II, King of France, who passed an ordinance against duelling. The subject of duelling and its legal, ethical, and social implications was a hot one in the latter half of 16th century Italy, and Susio's work is among the most important of several to appear in his day (Mutio, il Duello, 1550; Attendolo, il Duello, 1560; Pigna, Il Duello, 1560; Gallese, Contra l' uso del duello, 1565; et al.); and the Venetian house of the Giolito family seems to have printed many of them, including this. A very desirable copy of a rare and important book on the subject First edition. 4to. Large woodcut vignette (publisher's device); head- and tail-pieces, numerous large woodcut initial capital letters. Text printed in italic. 182, [18] pp. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title lettered along spine. Binding somewhat soiled and worn, title-page page a bit dusty, first four leaves show a mild early dampstaining at lower outer corners, contemporary owner's inscription to ffep; otherwise, overall, a lovely, unsophisticated, large-margined copy in its 16th-century binding.

        Toutes les euvres vulgaires de Francoys Petrarque. Contenant quatre livres de M. D. Laure d'Avignon sa maitresse : jadis par luy composez en langage Thuscan, & mis en Françoys par Vasquin Philieul de Carpentras Docteur es droictz. Avecques briefs sommaires ou argumes requis pour plus facile intelligence du tout.

      Avignon, Barthelemy Bonhomme 1555 - In-8. Collation : 399 pp. [noté 409] Maroquin rouge, dos à nerf orné, tranches dorées, encadrement doré sur les plats. (Reliure du XIXe, Niedrée.) Première traduction française complète des oeuvres de Pétrarque. Le traducteur, Vasquin Philieul (Carpentras, 1522 - vers 1582, 1586) avait déjà publié en 1548, sous le titre de Laure d&#146;Avignon, la première traduction en vers du Canzoniere de Pétrarque, que l'on retrouve ici dans la première partie. "Vasquin Philieul a joué un rôle de premier plan dans la divulgation de la poésie de Pétrarque en France au XVIe siècle : il a été le premier à publier une traduction complète des oeuvres vulgaires du poète italien. Avant lui, seuls Clément Marot et Jacques Peletier du Mans s'étaient essayés à une transposition des sonnets de Pétrarque en français, mais leur contribution n'avait été que très partielle : Marot avait traduit six sonnets et une chanson, Peletier douze sonnets recueillis dans ses Oeuvres poétiques. Vers le milieu du siècle qui fut celui de pétrarquisme triomphant, une francisation des oeuvres vulgaires du poète toscan était encore à faire, du moins pour les 'Rerum vulgarium fragmenta', puisque les 'Triumphi' comptaient déjà un certain nombre de traductions françaises. Vasquin Philieul fut celui qui se chargea de l'entreprise." Jean Balsamo, Les poètes français de la Renaissance et Pétrarque. Divisé en quatre livres, avec pour chacun une page de titre. Petit accroc restauré sur la page de titre. Erreur de pagination, passe de 240 à 251 sans manque. Très bel exemplaire relié par Niedrée en 1846.

        Las Siete Partidas nuevamente glosadas por el Licenciado Gregorio Lopez del Consejo Real de Indias de su Magestad. Con su repertorio muy Copioso, assi del Testo como de la Glosa.

      Impresso en Salamanca por Andrea de Portonaris, Impressor de su Magestad, 1555. - 9 tomes en 4 volumes in-folio. 151ff. chiffrés. + 116ff. chiffrés. + 186ff. chiffrés. + 73ff. chiffrés. (1f.blanc) + 112ff. chiffrés. + 116ff. chiffrés. + 102ff. chiffrés. + 20ff. 31ff. + 68ff. 8ff. 237ff. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs ornés (reliure espagnole du 18e siècle). Edition Originale de la version de référence des fameuses "Siete Partidas", texte fondamental pour l'histoire du Droit. Il exerça une influence considérable, dès son apparition au 13e siècle, sur tout l'Occident chrétien et, plus tard, sur les pays de l'Amérique latine auxquels il servit de base à l'élaboration de leur propre juridiction et où il fut en application jusqu'au 19e siècle et parfois même jusqu'au début du 20e siècle. Rédigé entre 1256 et 1265 par plusieurs juristes sous l'égide du roi de Castille Alfonso X, l'ouvrage aborde tous les aspects du savoir juridique à travers 7 grandes sections ("Partidas") que la qualité de leur rédaction en espagnol, place parmi les grands textes écrits dans cette langue. La présente édition, éditée par le juriste Gregorio López avec ses commentaires qui paraissent pour la première fois, constitue l'édition de référence, et un remarquable monument typographique à ce texte fondateur. Intéressant exemplaire enrichi d'un tome additionnel constitué des index et répertoires de l'édition de 1576, parue chez le même imprimeur. Traces d'humidité aux 60 premiers feuillets du premier tome, dues à un accident ayant déformé le plat supérieur du premier volume. Quelques défauts ici ou là, mais bon exemplaire à grandes marges imprimé sur papier fort et bien relié au 18e siècle. Palau, 7091: "Primera edición del texto de Gregorio López, quien revisó y corregió escrupulosamente los manuscritos y textos anteriores, en los que el descuido de copistas e impresores habia llegado a introducir variantes de importancia y a falsear el espiritu del legislador. De modo que esta edición fue declarada como texto único auténtico y legal en la práctica del foro". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Hystoria en la qual se trata dela origen y guerras que han tenido los Turcos, desde su comienco hasta nuestros tiempos. Con muy notables sucessosque con diversas getes y nasciones les han acotecido: y de las costubres y vida dllos

      Valencia: , 1555. Remarkable Spanish treatise on the Turks, first and only edition. 1555. Valencia. Juan Navarro. In folio (303 mm x 214 mm). 4 ff. + cliii. Eighteenth century stiff vellum, raised bands to spine, lettered in ink, head restored. A fine, wide-margined and unsophisticated copy, with only minor scattered foxing. First and only edition of the best 16th century work on the Turks. During the greater part of century of discoveries, Soliman the Magnificent?s expansion through the Mediterranean and across central Europe threatened Europe and Spain to the point only a large-scale invasion could. Valencian-born Rocca narrates the campaigns, battles and privateering activities of the Bereberes on the coasts of Valencia and Andalucia. The Hystoria is divided into three parts, the first deals with the crusades done to Jerusalem, the second with victories of Charles V and Venice over the Turks at the African coasts, and the third deals extensively with the way of life and customs of the Turks ?which allows us a glimpse of Spanish perception of what was one of the greatest nations of the 16th century. The work has been considered rare and important from the date of Salva. It is considerably rare, no copies are traced at auction in over 30 years. It is handsomely printed in two columns, with large engraved device to title page, gothic types. Salva, 3388. Palau, 271434.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Philippus").

      [Wittenberg], Ostern [14. April 1555].. Lateinische Hs. auf Papier. 2 SS. Folio (194:320 mm). Unter Passepartout gerahmt.. Empfehlungsbrief an den protestantischen Theologen Sebastian Boetius in Halle, mit Fürsprache für den jungen Priester Christian Hertwig d. J. - Boetius (1515-73), der in Wittenberg unter Luther und Melanchthon studiert hatte, folgte Justus Jonas als Superintendent von Halle nach und gründete die berühmte, noch heute bestehende Marienbibliothek. - In seinem Brief erinnert Melanchthon seinen ehemaligen Schüler daran, dass ihre Gedanken oft parallelen Bahnen folgten, wie auch ihre Briefe zeigten, und beschreibt die Rolle des idealen Pastors. Er empfiehlt Hertwig für eine solche Stellung, sowohl aufgrund seiner dogmatischen wie seiner moralischen Qualifikation: "S[alutem] d[ico] reverendo vir & cariss[imo] frater. Memini antea in quada[m] ad te epistola hac uti similitudine, de qua sepe cogito. Ut in navi remiges, amisso gubernatore, cuius cernere signa & cora[m] audire ma[n]data potera[n]t, necesse est sua sponte maiore cura concordia[m] tutti et co[n]silia co[n]ferre. Sic nos oportet co[n]iu[n]ctiores esse, cu[m] principes cura ecclesiar[um] paru[m] adficiantur, ac insu[m]eamur summu[m] gubernatore[m] filii dei qui non deerit nobis invocantib[us] ipsu[m]. Spes facta est huic Christiano Hertwik nato ex pastore ecclesia vicina oppido Hertzberg, prafectu[m] vestru[m] ei commendatu[rum] esse ecclesia[m] qua[n]da[m]. Quare te oro ut p[er]fecto eu[m] co[m]me[n]des, sed ita ut tu quoq[ue] consideres doctrina[m] & mores huius iuvenis. Vides quale sit seculu[m] in hac circumstantia [?]. Ideo qua[n]tu[m] potes vicinis ecclesiis consulito. De sale tibi gratia[m] habeo, et si nollem te sumptus fecisse mea causa. Sed benevolentia tua delector. Mitto pagellas, quia alia nu[n]c no[n] erant ad manu[m] [...]". - Christian Hertwig (geb. in Buckau um 1530, gest. vor Okt. 1574) war wahrscheinlich der ältere von zwei Söhnen des gleichnamigen ehemaligen Augustinermönchs C. Hertwig (um 1495-1562), der seinen Orden 1526 verließ und von 1531 von Justus Jonas und Luther selbst dem Kurfürsten empfohlen wurde. Christian d. J. studierte ein Jahr in Wittenberg, bevor er als Lehrer des Evangeliums nach Brandenburg ging. Zweimal verwandte sich Melanchthon für ihn: Am 25. III. 1555, kurz vor dem vorliegenden Brief an Boetius, versah er Hertwig mit einem persönlichen Empfehlungsschreiben, in dem er Georg Buchholzers lobende Worte zitierte und jedermann bat, dem jungen Mann, soweit möglich, zu seiner Stellung zu verhelfen (CR VIII, 449f.). - Leicht gebräunt; Spuren alter Faltung. Insgesamt wohlerhalten. Unveröffentlicht. - Melanchthons Briefwechsel (hg. v. H. Scheible), Bd. VII, S. 295, Nr. 7449. Koehler, Epistolae quaedam Phil. Melanthonis (1802), 37 Anm. 2.
