1558. "Acquaforte, 1558, nella parte inferiore della stampa, al centro, "Ornithon sive Aviarium M Varronis Pyrro Ligorio neap inv", più in basso, "Romae MDLVIII/Michaelis Tramezini formis". La bella tavola mostra la ricostruzione delineata da Pirro Ligorio della celebre Uccelleria di Varrone, in latino Ornithon o Aviarium, nella sua villa a Cassino, descritta dall'autore nel suo trattato "De re rustica" (Libro III, V-VI), e pubblicata per la prima volta da Michele Tramezzino a Roma nel 1558. Come per altre lastre basate su lavori di Ligorio ed edite da Tramezzino, è plausibile, anche per evidenti ragioni stilistiche, che anche in questo caso l'incisore sia Jacob Bos. Sono note due copie di questa lastra edite una a Venezia da Bolognino Zaltieri, e l'altra a Roma da Claudio Duchetti, a firma Ambrogio Brambilla. Huelsen, che non conosce questa edizione di Tramezzino, considera l'edizione di Zaltieri come originaria, e quella di Duchetti una copia successiva. In realtà, alla luce di questa tavola con l'excudit di Tramezzino e la data 1558, è evidente che questa prova è quella originaria, realizzata durante il periodo di collaborazione tra Pirro Ligorio e l'editore Tramezzino. Questa tiratura è di estrema rarità. Le copie edite da Duchetti si trovano, invece, inserite nello Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae.

Gioseffo Zarlino (1517-1590) laid down the theoretical basis for almost all aspects of modern music, for which he was cited as the ultimate authority for the next two hundred years. He codified the contrapuntal techniques of the great composers of his time and was the first to explain the modern tonal system of major and minor modes. In the terza parte Zarlino treats counterpoint in a conservative manner, particularly regarding the treatment of dissonances, provoking widespread attacks by Vincenzo Galilei and others.

ALVARES, Francisco.
Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1558. Small octavo, printed in italic and roman letter, xxx, [2], 341 leaves numbered on rectos only, with a woodcut of the stars of the Southern Cross and six woodcut plans of Ethiopian churches; a fine copy in eighteenth-century English red morocco, gilt-ruled borders on the sides with flower-pieces at the corners, spine panelled in gilt between raised bands, dark green leather label; marbled endpapers, all edges gilt; in a red morocco folding case, ornately gilt. A delightful copy of the first edition in French, in a most attractive English binding. This is the great collector William Beckford's copy of the book, subsequently having belonged to a number of other significant collectors including Wilfred Thesiger. While its main purpose is to describe the important Portuguese embassy to Ethiopia of 1520-26, it also includes a narrative of great significance to the southern hemisphere and the way there: Corsali's description of his identification of the Southern Cross along with the famous image illustrating the cross.The narrative of the embassy to Ethiopia by its chaplain Alvares was first published in Portuguese in 1540 as "Verdadera informaçam das terras do Preste Ioam": it was the earliest first-hand description of Ethiopia by a known European. Alvares' description was of great importance for the history of the country, not least for its unequivocal identification of King David of Ethiopia as the Prester John of the Indies, the legendary figure who had inspired Christendom since the twelfth century. Ethiopia in the sixteenth century stood … [Click Below for Full Description]

COMMANDINO, Federico. [Ptolemy, Ptolemaeus]
Venice: Aldus (Paolo Manuzio), 1558. First edition of Commandino's commentary. The Greek text of this writing by Ptolemy on stereographic projection is lost, a Latin version appeared in Basel in 1536, but this is the first separate and best edition, translated from the Arabic and edited by Commandino with his commentary. The 'Planisphaerium' concerns the stereographic projection of the celestial sphere on a plane with the south celestial pole at the center, a technique which Ptolemy used for mapping points in the heavens on the plane of the equator. In working with this projection and conic sections, Commandino noticed that conic sections can be considered sections in visual cones or perspective images. This inspired him to include in his work a study of perspective which occupies the first nineteen leaves of his commentary, and represents one of the earliest mathematical formulations of a method already widely employed by artists. (For a detailed account of this work see Andersen's The Geometry of an Art, pp.138-145). Houzeau & Lancaster 769; Riccardi I, 360.1; Adams P-2242; Sarton I, 277 and II, 616; Renouard 173.4; STC 543. Two parts bound in one volume (as issued). Small 4to: 211 x 156 mm. Contemporary limp vellum. ff. 3, (1:blank), 37, (1:printers device); 28. [complete].

MAUROLICO, Francesco.
Messina: Pietro Spira, 1558. First edition, 'excessively rare' (Sotheran, 1917), of Maurolico's Latin translations of works on 'sphaerics' by four ancient Greek writers, Autolycus, Menelaus, Euclid and Theodosius, those of the first two authors constituting the first printed editions. Maurolico, one of the most original mathematicians of the 16th century, appended his own original propositions on sphaerics, probably based on astronomical observations made from 1548 to 1550 in Sicily, as well as a number of trigonometrical tables, including the first printed tables of secants. Sphaerics, the geometry of the sphere, was regarded by the ancient Greeks as a branch of astronomy rather than of geometry. The order in which the works are presented by Maurolico is pedagogical rather than historical. He begins with the Sphaerica of Theodosius of Bithynia (ca. 160 BC - ca. 100 BC), a mathematician and astronomer who lived in Tripoli on the Fenicia coast who is thought to be a younger contemporary of Hipparchus, the inventor of trigonometry (although no work by Hipparchus on this subject has survived). Arranged in three books, the Sphaerica discusses the properties of circular arcs lying on the surface of a sphere, notably great circles. Maurolico's version is based on a Latin manuscript of Plato of Tivoli (in turn prepared on the basis of an Arabic translation). The Sphaerica first appeared in the compendium Sphaera published at Venice in 1518; the first separate Latin edition at Vienna in 1529; and the editio princeps of the Greek text at Paris in the same year as the present wor … [Click Below for Full Description]

With Italian annotations in ink, partly dated 1815, on old fly-leaves. Skilful repairs to blank corners of title page and a number of leaves.

La première avait paru en 1545. L'édition originale du texte de Bassantin fut publiée en 1555 à Lyon chez Jean de Tournes sous le titre "Paraphrase de l'Astrolabe". L'auteur décrit méthodiquement et avec un grand souci du détail, dans une première partie et en 43 propositions, les usages astronomiques et astrologiques de l'astrolabe ; et dans une seconde partie, qui compte 12 propositions, son utilisation pour connaitre les hauteurs et longueurs. 48 figures en bois dans le texte représentent le système astrologique pré-Copernicien établit par Jacquinot, puis de nombreux détails des différentes parties dont se composent un Astrolabe, enfin les diverses méthodes pour l'utiliser en tant qu'outil permettant de mesurer les distances, les hauteurs et les profondeurs : ces dernières figures montrent des personnages en train d'établir des mesures. Bel exemplaire, enrichi, sur les premières gardes, des deux jolis croquis d'une main du XVIe siècle.

Naples, Matthias Cancer, 1558 In-4, (16), 163 et (1) pages ; veau brun moderne dans le goût de l'époque. Aux origines de l'hermétisme moderne et de la magie naturelle Première description de la chambre noire. Première édition, rare, de ce texte paradigme des savoirs de la Renaissance qui contient, entre autres, la toute première description de la chambre noire ou camera obscura, autrement dit la description du premier dispositif technique permettant la projection d'une image. A l'instar de son contemporain Jérôme Cardan, Porta, en réaction au modèle et à la méthode aristotélicienne, s'intéresse, comme l'indique le titre de l'ouvrage, aux irrégularités, merveilles et secrets inexpliqués du monde naturel. Les quatre livres contiennent « des formules de médecine hermétique, des secrets de beauté, des recettes pour améliorer les produits du sol, des renseignements sur les teintures et les encres de sympathie, des tours de physique » (Dorbon 3731, à propos de la traduction de Rouen, 1620) ; et plus généralement, des observations sur des thèmes variés comme la géologie, l'optique, la médecine, les poisons, la cuisine, la métallurgie, le magnétisme, les parfums et cosmétiques, la poudre à canon, la cryptographie, etc. « Porta's first book, published in 1558 as Magiae naturalis, was a treatise on the secrets of nature, which he began collecting when he was fifteen. The secrets are arranged in four books, and the conception implied in the title is that natural magic is the perfection of natural philosophy and the highest science.
