[KEPLER, Johannes] MAGINI, Giovanni Antonio.
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 us … [Click Below for Full Description]

BELON DU MANS, Pierre.
Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1555. Small octavo, with title-page bearing striking printer's device, three maps including double-page plan of Mt. Sinai, finely executed woodblock illustrations; a most attractive copy in eighteenth-century sprinkled calf, spine gilt in panels with red label. One of the first explorer-naturalists: Pierre Belon'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 'can be considered the originator of comparative anatomy... he enriched the biological sciences by new observations and contributed greatly to the progress of the natural sciences in the sixteenth century.' (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'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 'one of the most readable travelogues to appear in the sixteenth century'.Belon had travelled to the east as a member of a diplomatic mission that also included the archaeologist Pierre Giles, and later Guil … [Click Below for Full Description]

[BRAHE, Tycho] MAGINI, Giovanni Antonio.
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 establis … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. Thimm, p. 280 (mistakenly calling for frontispiece); Levi & Geli, not in Adams; not in Brunet.

(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'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.

Testo in lingua latina e carattere prevalentemente tondo con richiami marginali; alcuni bei capilettera abitati. L'opera è una pregevole edizione veneziana di due trattati medici assai diffusi in Europa, nella traduzione latina dal greco. Il primo trattato, composto di 12 libri, è un'opera di terapeutica del greco Alessandro di Tralle, maestro di medicina a Roma, esponente dell'indirizzo pratico eclettico. Segue, dalla carta 233 / verso, il trattatello De pestilentia, composto dal medico, filosofo e scienziato musulmano Ar - Razi, conosciuto in Occidente con la forma latinizzata Rhazes o Razes. Il catalogo della Bibliotheca Walleriana scheda un esemplare della stessa edizione veneziana, riportando però che al fondo del volume vi è la data 1552 al posto di 1555; l'esemplare in esame, invece, reca l'anno 1555 sia al frontespizio che all'ultima carta.

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.

Rocca, Vicente
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.
