Lopez de Gomara, Francisco:
Rome: Valerio & Luigi Dorici, 1556.. [2],211,[1] leaves, including two woodcuts. Quarto. Later vellum, yapp edges. Vellum dust soiled. Old bookseller's label adhered to front pastedown. Internally clean and bright. Very good. The first Italian edition of one of the most important early chronicles of the Spanish conquest of the New World, and one of the two chief accounts of Cortes' conquest of Mexico, the other being provided by Bernal Diaz. Lopez de Gomara was Cortes' secretary for a number of years, and made use of his unparalleled opportunity to gather information from the primary source relating to the extraordinary exploits surrounding the overthrow of the Aztec empire. The work was first published in Zaragosa in 1552, and quickly went through a number of editions in Spain, Italy, and the Low Countries. Dedicated to Cosmo de Medici, this edition is enhanced by two woodcuts, the first of what appears to represent a buffalo, and the second being an elaborate printer's device on the verso of the last leaf. A rare account of the Mexican conquest. WAGNER SPANISH SOUTHWEST 2N. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 556/22. SABIN 27736. MEDINA (BHA) 159N.

FINÉ, ORONCE (ORONTIUS FINAEUS). - [THE MEDIAEVAL QUADRANT]
Lutetiae (Paris), Aegidium Gourbinum, 1556. 4to. (24x17 cm.). Later limp vellum with ms. title on spine. Title with printers device in woodcut. Initials in woodcut. Ff (4),56 (=(8),102 pp.). 1 full-page woodcut illustration of the quadrant and many diagrams and illustrations in the text. Upper right corner of titlepage repaired with paperpulp, and a tear to corner on F 2 repaired, not affecting the text. Light scattered brownspots, but a good broad-margined copy.. First edition as a separate text published posthumously by Fine's son the year after his father's death. The work was originally issued as part two of Finé's "Protomathesis" from 1532. In this work Finé shows the varied use of the quadrant in measuring distances, proportions, solids etc. as a derivation of the trigonometric quadrant from the eleventh century "quadrans vetustissimus", as also described by Appian in his "Instrumentum...primi mobilis" 1534. - "Finé dealt only with the strictly trigonometric use of the quadrant, determination of the right and versed sines of a given arc - or vice versa - and the products or ratios of two sines. Virtually ignoring the application of its properties to astronomical calculations..."(DSB). "Fine apparently built very large instruments of four or five feet in size and thus was able to graduate them in finer detail than their simpler hand-held cousins. An illustration shows a geometric square with 120 divisions in the quadrant-a significant improvement over the usual dozen or so on the shadow scales of the smaller instruments. One illustration shows a mechanism for finding t … [Click Below for Full Description]

GIRAVA, Hieronymus (d.1556).
Milan: G.A. Castiglione and C. Carron, 1556. - 4to., (8 4/8 x 6 2/8 inches). Folding woodcut world map (11 x 16 inches) (folds of map strengthened in one or two places on verso, some worming to upper margin of gatherings Y-2E, some pale dampstaining). 18th-century mottled sheep, spine in six panels with four raised bands, citron morocco lettering piece in one, the others decorated in gilt (extremities scuffed with some minor loss to one corner); modern quarter morocco slipcase and chemise. Provenance: 17th-century inscription of Augustinian Hermits partially obscured at the foot of the title-page; inscription on front pastedown of "T. Norton. Pte. de Lima 13 Dec. 1841. Affe. de Fornellos" and ink stamp on title-page; Frank Sherwin Streeter (1918-2006) (Collection of Important Navigation, Pacific Voyages, Cartography and Science). AN IDENTICAL COPY SOLD AT CHRISTIE'S IN JULY 2016 FOR $138,776. First edition, with the rare world map: "Girava's woodcut map is uncommon, and it is often missing from the volume in which it first appeared. The author, cosmographer to the Emperor Charles V, has drawn a much simplified version of the large world map by Casper Vopel, the contemporary German cartographer from Cologne. All Vopel's world maps--supposedly of 1545, 1549 and 1552 - have perished and only derivatives by Vavassore (1558) and Van den Putte (1570) have survived. Balboa's discovery of the Pacific Ocean in 1513 is noted, and there is an interesting inscription across the southern continent saying that it was sighted in 1499: this has given rise to considerable speculation" (Shir … [Click Below for Full Description]
