GABUCCINI ou GABUCINI (Girolamo)
Venetiis, Aldus [Paul Manuce]. 1561, 1561, , in-4 [155 x 212 mm], [4]-99-[17] feuillets (signatures *4, A-Z4, AA-FF4), vélin souple de l'époque, titre en long manuscrit au dos, Première édition de cet ouvrage, l'un des premiers traités complets sur l'épilepsie. Il est issu de l'imprimerie aldine de Paul Manuce, avec la marque typographique à l'ancre au titre et au verso du dernier feuillet. Très rare. Contre les opinions populaires et théologiques de son temps, Gabuccini met l'accent sur le caractère "naturel" de l'épilepsie. Gabuccini, médecin italien du milieu du XVIe siècle, élève de A. Theodosio, fut également l'auteur du premier traité sur le ver solitaire (De lumbricis almum occupantibus. Venise, Scotus, 1547). Ses ouvrages sont remarquables par leurs nombreuses observations pathologiques et anatomiques. Il détermina entre autres, à la suite de son maître, que le tournis chez le mouton était causé par la présence d'un ver (le cénure) dans le cerveau. Quelques rousseurs pâles.

Giacomo GASTALDI (circa 1500 - 1566) - GIROLAMO Ruscelli (ca 1518 - 1566).
Copper engraving (Very Good, slight traces from the text on the back), 23,5 x 32 cm (9.2 x 12,6 inches). - Venice: Vincenzo Valgrisi 1561. This classic 16th century map of the world was published in La geografia di Claudio Tolomeo Alessandrino, nuouamente tradotta di Greco in Italiano, by a Venetian author Girolamo Ruscelli, and was based on Giacomo Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy thirteen years earlier. The map is adapted from the oval projection used in Gastaldi's larger world map and is presented on Roger Bacon's circular projection, also used by Tramezzino's large world map of 1554. This is the first state of the map, when two maps were still engraved on one plate and the images were separated after printing. That is why the upper part of the plate does not have a neatline.

Mesue (The younger)
Parisiis, Apud Aegidium Gorbinum, 1561, 8, (14), 200 leaves, Pergamenteinband der Zeit mit rotem Rückenschild einige Seiten angegossen etwas fleckig trotz der Fehler ein schönes Exemplar. Another of the more than forty works attributed to Mesuë the Younger, this one deals with the principles of medicine and the use of drugs, laxatives, and antidotes. "Masawayh al-Mardini (known in the West as Mesuë the Younger) is supposed to have been a Jacobite Christian who lived in the tenth century. Since none of his writings has been found in its original language and no Arabian historian or bibliographer seems to know him, it is now believed that a Latin author (perhaps an Italian) of the early thirteenth century assumed the name of Mesuë, hoping thereby to gain ready recognition for his works under the guise of the ninth century Syrian physician who wrote in Arabic. At any rate, his writings were accepted as genuinely Arabian and held such a place of importance that" it passed through more than 30 editions up to 1581 and influenced all later pharmacopeias. This is an early translation from the Arabic by Jacques Dubois, known as Sylvius. "Jacques Dubois (1478-1555) a most able anatomist and one often quoted both by contemporaries and by medical men for many years to follow, Dubois (also known as Jacobus Sylvius) was Vesalius' teacher at the University of Paris. He was a staunch Galenist and, when Vesalius cast open doubt on much of Galenic "law," Dubois turned on his former pupil, denounced him, and thus caused Vesalius some of the unhappiness which was later to accumulate t … [Click Below for Full Description]

REGIOMONTANUS, Johannes [Georg von PEUERBACH, Daniel SANTBECH
Basel: Heinrich Petri & Peter Perna, 1561. First edition. Rare augmented edition of "the first systematic treatise on plane and spheric trigonometry to be published in Europe. Although it drew heavily on Arabic sources, those earlier treatises had been either lost or forgotten by 1533 when Regiomontanuss work was first printed. Among the notable contents of this work are the sine law and perhaps the first European application of algebra to trigonometry. Indeed with De triangulis trigonometry was established as an independent discipline. Regiomontanus' original purpose, however, had been to furnish astronomers with a mathematical technique essential for their studies, and in this De triangulis had a success perhaps greater than its author could have dreamed of. For in 1539 Georg Joachim Rheticus presented a copy of the work's 1533 edition as a gift to Copernicus. The great astronomer had already written the trigonometrically-based portion of his De Revolutionibus without knowledge of his predecessor's treatise. After reading the new book, Copernicus modified the presentation of several of his own indispensable theorems by inserting two leaves in the manuscript of the De Revolutionibus. Hence, Rheticus' remark that Regiomontanus began the reconstruction of astronomy that Copernicus completed takes on a fuller meaning" (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, pp. 99-100). This edition is augmented by two early allied treatises: 'Tabula sinuum ad 6000000 partes per I. de Regiomonte computata' and 'Tractatus super propositiones Ptolemaei de sinubus et chordis' by Peurbach. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Chaves (1523-74) was a distinguished mathematician, cosmographer, and poet living in Seville, and the first occupant of the chair for cosmography at the Casa de Contractacion. He was one of the first cosmographers to publish a map of the New World, appearing on the verso of leaf 68 in this edition. Chaves' New World map is an early and notable map of North American and South America. Burden notes that the map "does show knowledge of some of the latest geographical findings; the Gulf of California and Cartier's expeditions in Canada. The Yucatan is correctly shown as a peninsula."

LANSBERGE (LANSBERGIUS), Philip van.

The complete mathematical and astronomical works, in Latin, of (Johan) Philip van Lansberge (1561-1632), one of the most famous mathematicians and astronomers of the Dutch Republic during its golden age. These collected works were published by Zacharias Roman at Middelburg who had also published many of Lansberge's works separately. He assembled the present compete works primarily by reissuing the separate editions that had been printed earlier, but printed new preliminaries, the previously unpublished Horologium and apparently parts of the Tabulae motum coelestium. We number them here according to the numbered list of contents in the preliminaries, but there are several bibliographical irregularities. What we call item 4.5 does not appear in the list but is apparently a normal part of the book. Item 5 (the Horologium) is the first edition, published 31 years after Lansbergius's death and item 4.5 (the Sphaera plana) is the first Latin edition.With an early owner's name on the half-title, repeated with another at the head of the dedication, all difficult to decipher, but clearly Geo[rge] ... and probably ... Brook. The binding with some small cuts and somewhat dirty. In good condition.The Opera contain the following works, all with many woodcut illustrations in the text:- 1-2: Triangulorum geometriae libri quattuor ... Item Cyclometriae novae libri duo.
