        Autograph letter signed ("Caterine").

      Paris, 16. IV. 1562.. Folio. 2 pp. Small blue collector's stamp at lower edge of verso.. Fine, long letter to Sebastien de L'Aubespine (1518-1582), bishop of Limoges, her ambassador to the Spanish court (though actually written for the benefit of her son-in-law, King Philip II, and his wife, her daughter Elisabeth de Valois), defending herself against the accusation of having converted to Protestantism. She asserts that she will stay what she has been the first 43 years of her life - a Catholic, not a liar or hypocrite: "Monsieur de Limoge je byen voleu que tous ses signeurs aycripse au Roy despagne de la fason que je souis pour respet de la religion non pour temoignage se que je veulle ni devant dieu ni les hommes de ma fouys ni bonnes heuvres mes pour reguart de manterie que lons ha distes de moy et le calonnie que lon ma donnees. car set lons ha mande auparavent aultre chause que set que lon fayst asteure lons ha manti car je nay change ni en nefayst ni en volante ni en fason de vivre ma religion qui lya quarante et troys hans anuit que je tiens et hye ayste batisee et nourie et je ne se si tout le monde en peult dire aultent et set je an suis marrye ne san fault aybayr car set mansonge deure trop lontemps pour ne san facher a la fin et prinsipalement quant lon se sent la consiense neste y fayst byen mal que seus qui ne lon pas tent en parler et hardiment. monstre sete letre au duc dalbe et au Roy monsieur mon fils car ie ne voldres qui pansaset que jeuse mandie heun temoynage pour nestre alaye toutte ma vye le droyt chemin mes je lay fayst pour ne povoyr plus endeurer que lon me preste de cherite et que sela ferme la bouche a seus que disi ennavent san voldrest encore ayder et metre tousiour pouine de me aylongner de la bonne grase du Roy monsieur mon fils que je tien plus chere que ma propre vie. pourse aseure me sybien avent que partyes que neul naye puisanse de my demineuer et diste alla Royne ma fille que sele veult fayre chause pour me fayre vivray contente quellay mi y entertyene et lui fase tousiour bon pour moy que je ne sere jeames que set que je ayste jeuques ysi qui est cretiene catolyque et poynt manterese ni desimeuleuse et qui le truvere tous iour ynsin [...]". - The notion that Catherine had supposedly rejected Catholicism may be due to the two edicts she issued for her under-age son Henry III in July 1561 and January 1562, probably under the influence of the moderate chancellor Michel de l'Hopital. The former repealed the death sentence for heresy; the latter - the Edict of Saint-Germain - granted Huguenots private worship outside of towns. Meanwhile, Francis, Duke of Guise, butchered some 80 Huguenot worshippers in the Massacre of Vassy, prompting the first of the French Wars of Religion. The politically talented and ruthless Catherine first attempted to maneuver a middle course between Protestants and Catholics in order to strengthen royal dominion. Only after the so-called "Surprise de Meaux" (1567), during which Louis de Bourbon tried to arrest Charles IX and the royal family, did she entirely abandon compromise for repression. Her pragmatic approach is underlined by the fact that the offered the Huguenot Henri de Navarre her daughter's hand in marriage. While today some historians argue that the order for the 1572 St. Bartholomew's Day massacre did not come from her, there is no reason to believe she was not party to the decision when on 23 August Charles IX ordered, "Then kill them all!". - Note of receipt by L'Aubespine at the bottom: "Lettre de de la Royne a Mr de lymoges du 16 davril 1562. Je la monstra au Roy et au duc dalve [...]". - Left edge remargined (slight clipping; no loss to text); traces of mounting. From the Geneva collection of J. P. Barbier-Mueller. - Published in: Hector de la Ferriere, Lettres de Catherine de Medicis. Paris, 1880. Vol. I., p. 296f.

        In Epistolas M. Tullii Ciceronis ad M. Iunium Brutum, et ad Q. Ciceronem fratrem, Paulii Manutii commentarius. Venetiis, [Paolo Manuzio], 1562.

      In 8, [mm. 149 x 96], cc. (8) ? 168 (in realtà 160 perché il quinterno E anzichè inizia con c. 33 invece che con c. 25). Errore di numerazione a c. 54. In pergamena coeva con autore e titolo al dorso. Bindelle parzialmente conservate. Alone marrone al margine superiore a partire da c. 34 e, assai leggero a quello inferiore. Legatura parzialmente scollegata dai nervi. Dorso liscio. Frontespizio con ancora e delfino fra la scritta ALDUS. Al frontespizio ed all'ultima carta piccolo timbro ovale di possesso con cuore (?) sormontato da una croce patriarcale con un ?M? e altre lettere. In fine anche un numero manoscritto e alla carta di guardia posteriore annotazione ?N. 305 Strabigioli?. Paolo Manuzio, figlio di Aldo il vecchio e Maria Torresano, a sua volta figlia di Andrea soio di Aldo, nacque a Venezia nel 1512. Trascorse la fanciullezza ad Asola ma fu spesso a Venezia; alla morte della madre nel 1536, sette anni dopo quella del padre Aldo, si trasferì presso i Torresano e a quel tempo inizia anche il suo affacciarsi sulla scena culturale veneziana grazie alla frequentazione con il Bembo, il Sadoleto. Dopo aver iniziato a gestire la tipografia di famiglia in società con gli zii, eredi di Andrea Torresano, nel 1540 ci fu lo scioglimento della società e Paolo continuò a stampare dapprima insieme ai fratelli e poi a proprio nome. Nel 1561 fu chiamato a Roma per dirigere la Stamperia del Popolo Romano da Pio IV affidando la tipografia di Venezia al figlio Aldo il giovane. Morì a Roma nel 1574. Alla sua attività quale studioso si devono le edizioni sulle antichità romane e diversi commenti alle opere di Cicerone fra le quali appunto le Lettere a Marco Giunio Bruto e quelle a Quinto. Queste fanno parte del gran numero di lettere conservatosi di Cicerone, circa novecento, indirizzate a parenti, amici, cittadini, uomini poltici che costituiscono la fonte principale per la biografia dell'arpinate. In particolare dei 37 libri in cui sono raccolte le epistole, tre comprendono quelle al fratello Quinto e due a Marco Bruto.

        Die Sechs Erste Bücher Euclidis, Vom anfang oder grund der Geometri...auss Griechischer sprach in die Teütsch gebracht

      Numerous finely cut woodcut diagrams, initials, and tailpieces. Title & parts of the Preface printed in red & black. 8 p.l. (final leaf a blank), 185 pp., 1 blank leaf. Small folio, cont. vellum over boards (one corner a little worn, spine with two small defects), sides panelled in gilt, large central device on each cover in gilt (gilt now largely gone). Basel: [J. Kündig at the expense of J. Oporinus, 1562]. First edition of the first German translation of the first six books of Euclid's Elements, translated from the Greek by the German humanist Wilhelm Xylander [Holtzmann] (1532-76), professor of Greek and librarian at Heidelberg University. This translation was influential in Germany, according to Cantor (II, p. 507), as it allowed artists, gold workers, and builders to study the text in a modern and accessible language. This volume "is a rather handsome one, with an elaborate title-page, printed in red and black. It has good woodcut ornaments and well-executed diagrams. It contains a long preface by the translator."-Thomas Stanford, p. 13. Xylander's preface in fact amounts to a complete assessment of Euclid's importance. Very good with some light dampstaining at head, becoming more pronounced toward end. A rare edition. This copy lacks, as almost all copies, the four leaves of errata, which are found in only a few examples and were clearly inserted later. ❧ Adams E-1017-(our collation). Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p. 11-(without the errata leaves)-"This edition of Euclid is mentioned because the editor has thought it necessary to add to Book II some arithmetical work. In particular he gives three forms of multiplication, first from left to right, then in the usual way, and finally for special cases in which the short processes are involved. He also considers the division of numbers in given ratios, the extraction of roots, and a few other semi-algebraic calculations." Thomas-Stanford 36-(not knowing of the errata leaves). .

Urbanus Rhegius (1489-1541) highly educated and a friend of Erasmus as well as a follower of the Via Moderna, he was a famous court preacher before the Reformation who was associated with John Eck (who debated Luther at the Diet of Worms); initially he went along with the Roman Catholic Church even announcing the bulla (bull) known as Exsurge Domine against Luther; however, by his own critical stance against the selling of indulgences he wrote an apology for Luther in 1521 and was discharged becoming an evangelical pastor in 1524 and in attempting to form a compromise with Zwingli and Luther helped to have a major role in developing the Augsburg Confession in 1530. The copies in the Folder Library and Saint Andrews University Library in Scotland are also in a fine pigskin binding.. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        Historia della guerra sacra di Gierusalemme, della Terra di Promissione, e quasi di tutta la Soria ricuperata da' Christiani. Tradotta in Lingua Italiana da G. Horologgi. Venice, appresso Vincenzo Valgrisi,

      1562 - First Italian edition, translated by Giuseppe Orologi (1520-76), of the archbishop and chronicler William of Tyre's (d. 1190) history of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, the only source for the history of twelfth-century Jerusalem written by a native. The first Latin edition had only been published a decade or so before by Nicholas Brylinger, Basle 1549."The chief work of his which has reached us is the Historia rerum in partibus transmarinis gestarum, or Historia Hierosolymitana, in twenty-three books. It is a general history of the Crusades and the Kingdom of Jerusalem down to 1184. The work was begun between 1169 and 1173, at the request of King Amaury. The first sixteen books (down to 1144) were composed with the assistance of pre-existing sources, Albert of Aix, Raimond d'Aguilen, Foucher of Chartres, etc. On the other hand books seventeen to twenty-three have the value of personal memoirs. As chancellor of the kingdom the author consulted documents of the first importance, and he himself took part in the events which he recounts. He is therefore a chief source for the history of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. His account is in general remarkable for its literary charm. Very intelligent and well informed, the author had very broad views; from his stay at Constantinople he acquired a certain admiration for the Byzantine Empire, and his temperate opinions of John and Manuel Comneus are in contrast with the tone of other European chronicles".

        In Epistolas M. Tullii Ciceronis ad M. Iunium Brutum, et ad Q. Ciceronem fratrem, Paulii Manutii commentarius. Venetiis, [Paolo Manuzio], 1562.

      1562 - In 8, [mm. 149 x 96], cc. (8) &#150; 168 (in realtà 160 perché il quinterno E anzichè inizia con c. 33 invece che con c. 25). Errore di numerazione a c. 54. In pergamena coeva con autore e titolo al dorso. Bindelle parzialmente conservate.Alone marrone al margine superiore a partire da c. 34 e, assai leggero a quello inferiore. Legatura parzialmente scollegata dai nervi. Dorso liscio. Frontespizio con ancora e delfino fra la scritta ALDUS. Al frontespizio ed all'ultima carta piccolo timbro ovale di possesso con cuore (?) sormontato da una croce patriarcale con un "M" e altre lettere. In fine anche un numero manoscritto e alla carta di guardia posteriore annotazione "N. 305 Strabigioli". Paolo Manuzio, figlio di Aldo il vecchio e Maria Torresano, a sua volta figlia di Andrea soio di Aldo, nacque a Venezia nel 1512. Trascorse la fanciullezza ad Asola ma fu spesso a Venezia; alla morte della madre nel 1536, sette anni dopo quella del padre Aldo, si trasferì presso i Torresano e a quel tempo inizia anche il suo affacciarsi sulla scena culturale veneziana grazie alla frequentazione con il Bembo, il Sadoleto. Dopo aver iniziato a gestire la tipografia di famiglia in società con gli zii, eredi di Andrea Torresano, nel 1540 ci fu lo scioglimento della società e Paolo continuò a stampare dapprima insieme ai fratelli e poi a proprio nome. Nel 1561 fu chiamato a Roma per dirigere la Stamperia del Popolo Romano da Pio IV affidando la tipografia di Venezia al figlio Aldo il giovane. Morì a Roma nel 1574. Alla sua attività quale studioso si devono le edizioni sulle antichità romane e diversi commenti alle opere di Cicerone fra le quali appunto le Lettere a Marco Giunio Bruto e quelle a Quinto. Queste fanno parte del gran numero di lettere conservatosi di Cicerone, circa novecento, indirizzate a parenti, amici, cittadini, uomini poltici che costituiscono la fonte principale per la biografia dell'arpinate. In particolare dei 37 libri in cui sono raccolte le epistole, tre comprendono quelle al fratello Quinto e due a Marco Bruto.

At rear of page is a decorative seal depicting a serpent wrapping around a wooden post in the shape of a T. Below is printed the name, Vincent. An immaculately preserved volume in very good condition.<br><br> William of Tyres History of the Crusades is an epic chronicle of the events leading up to and following the establishment of the Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1099. Translated into various languages upon first publication, including Old French, Italian and English, Williams great work is a Latin chronicle, written between 1170 and 1184. It contains twenty-three books; the final book, which deals with the events of 1183 and the beginning of 1184, has only a prologue and one chapter, so it is either unfinished or the rest of the pages were lost before the whole chronicle began to be copied. The first book begins with the conquest of Syria by Umar in the seventh century, but otherwise the work deals with the advent of the First Crusade and the subsequent political history of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. It is arranged, but was not written, chronologically; the first sections to be written were probably the chapters about the invasion of Egypt in 1167, which are extremely detailed and were likely composed before the Fatimid dynasty was overthrown in 1171. This single-bound volume collects the entirety of Tyres works on the crusade in a gorgeous new binding. Please feel free to view our photographs of this exceptional volume.

Sein Hauptwerk ist dieses Sammelwerk in 8 Büchern über Handlesekusnt, Astrologie und Physiognomik, dessen chiromantischer Teil in 6 Büchern das ganze Wissen seiner Zeit zusammenfaßt und wegen seiner fast 1800 Illustrationen zu den geschätztesten Arbeiten über dieses Gebiet zählt. "... darinne er sonderlich von der Physiognomie und Chiromantie handelt; wie er denn zuletzt alle seine Zeit mit der Chiromantie zubrachte, und damit das leichtgläubige Volck an sich zog, aber auch bey andern seinen erlangten Ruhm wieder verlohr" (Jöcher IV, 989). "Taisnier posed as a distinguished specialist in the art of chiromancy. He asserted, like Cocles, that his judgement had never gone astray in the examination of human hands, and he gives many instances of his succesful past readings of palms. After consulting many painters, he found it advisable to draw his own figures of hands in order to have them exact" (Thorndike). Die Bücher 7 und 8 behandeln Physiognomik und Astrologie. Der 1509 im Hennegau geborene Jurist, Philosoph, Mathematiker und Musiker war Lehrer der Pagen Kaiser Karls V.

        Geographia Cl. Ptolemaei Alexandrini Olim a Bilibaldo Pirckheimherio traslata, at nunc multis codicibus graecis collata, pluribusque in locis ad pristinam ueritatem redacta

      Venice: Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1562. hardcover. very good(-). Venice: Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1562. 2 parts with separate pagination. Short, thick 4to bound in 19th century vellum with red edges. Features 64 double page maps: 27 Ptolemaic maps (showing the ancient world as Ptolemy knew it, including one world map), 37 "modern" maps (with two world maps) and several woodcut diagrams, illustrations and decorative initials. Text in Latin. Staining throughout affecting some of the maps. Bookplate of Otto Orren Fisher and ink inscription of Charles Singer. Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world&#39;s geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy&#39;s detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477. Giuseppe Moleto (Josephus Moletius) (1531-1588) was an Italian mathematician who based the text of this edition on the 1525 translation by Wilibald Pirckheimer. Moleto&#39;s draws upon Ruscelli&#39;s enlarged maps of his 1561 edition, which in turn, were based upon those by Jacopo Gastaldi. Moleto has also included some of Girolamo Ruscelli&#39;s innovations from his own edition: the double hemisphere world map and "Carta Marina Nuova Tavola", a rare sea chart of the world. Also from Ruscelli is a revised version of the Zeno map of the Arctic, first published in 1558. The Zeno map describes the purported journey of the author&#39;s ancestors in the 1390s to Greenland, Iceland, the mythical islands of Frisland and Icaria, and what is now thought to be Newfoundland and Labrador. While Zeno shows Greenland connected to Norway, Ruscelli updated the map by eliminating this land bridge. Despite its inaccuracies and inclusion of mythical lands, the Zeno map persisted as the prevailing map of the Arctic and Greenland for many years. Six other New World maps include the South American continent, Brazil, Central America and the Baja Peninsula, the eastern coast of North America, Cuba and Hispaniola. Moleto juxtaposes the Ptolemaic maps with the contemporary, offering easy comparison between ancient and new. A rare and exciting edition for any collector.

        Mendicante cieco con cane Bologna, XVI secolo

      BOLOGNA, XVI SECOLOIncisione all'acquaforte di mm 163 x 282 alla battuta, su carta vergatina antica. Piccole mancanze all'angolo inferiore destro; margini di 5 mm. Foglio inizialmente incollato su foglio settecentesco; sul retro di quest'ultimo era indicato con grafia antica "Pitoco di Bologna inciso da Francesco Brizio". Sotto l'immagine il cartiglio recita "Andei vù à lavorà fieùi de porche, Mà non havè besogn' de lavorà, Perche à disnà n'aspettano le forche". Pietro Faccini (Bologna 1562? - 1602), è stato un pittore italiano. Iniziò tardi l'attività pittorica sotto la guida dei Carracci, del 1590 è il Martirio di san Lorenzo ora nella chiesa di San Giovanni in Monte a Bologna. Dalle prime opere oltre l'influsso di Annibale Carracci nelle opere di piccolo formato e nella sua produzione grafica sembra risentire dell'influenza dell'opera del Tintoretto e del Bassano. Tra il 1593 e il 1594 prende le distanze da Annibale e mentre in opere come le pale delle chiese di San Domenico e di Santa Maria dei Servi e nel Presepio della Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna è presente l'influsso di Ludovico, nella Pala Pellicani e nella Madonna del Rosario di Quarto Inferiore vi sono esplicite citazioni dell'opera di Correggio e di Federico Barocci, nell' Autoritratto, ora agli Uffizi, queste influenze vengono portate alle estreme conseguenze arrivando a una disintegrazione delle formule manieristici e carraccesche anticipando buona pittura del settecento.

        Dialogo nel quale si ragiona del modo di accrescere e conservar la memoria.

      in Venetia, Gio. Battista et Marchio Sessa, 1562. 1562 In-8° antico (148x102mm), ff. (4), 119, (1) di registro, legatura ottocentesca in p. percallina con titolo e filetti in oro al dorso. Al frontespizio impresa tipografica. Decine di xilografie, sia intercalate n.t. che a p. pag.; le xilografie, di notevole elaborazione formale, raffigurano vari alfabeti (uno di essi si basa su quello che si trova nell?opera di Jacobus Publicius ?Oratoris Artis Epitomata?, impressa a Venezia nel 1482), una testa umana con la posizione delle facoltà mentali, una città, l?albero ?Hortus Philosophiae?, una figura femminile simulante la ?Gramatica?, ecc. Un capolettera istoriato. Esemplare leggermente più corto in testa. Ottimo stato conservativo. Prima e assai rara edizione di uno dei principali trattati mnemotecnici del Rinascimento italiano. Il Dolce traspone, in una forma dialogica latamente ispirata al De Oratore di Cicerone, i principi di ars memorativa contenuti nel Congestorium artificiosae memoriae (1520) del domenicano tedesco Johannes Romberch, trattato di cui il presente libro riprende anche numerose xilografie. Il Dolce, che dichiara espressamente tale debito, senza apportare innovazioni capitali alla mnemotecnica compie tuttavia un interessante sforzo di adattare le tecniche del Romberch alla cultura italiana, per esempio utilizzando, quali guide mnemoniche, Dante e le figure mitologiche presenti nella pittura di Tiziano. Il Dolce (Venezia, 1508-ivi, 1568), poligrafo dall'ingente produzione, amico di Tiziano e dell'Aretino, compose drammi, poemi, liriche di stampo bembiano, satire, capitoli, trattati sulla pittura, la lingua e le belle arti, e fu autore di numerosi commenti e traduzioni per il Giolito de'Ferrari.

        Hadrianus tit. S. Grisogonis r.e. card. Batonien. De sermone latino, et modis latine loquendis. Nuper a mendis plerisque expurgatus, & in suum pristinum candorem restitutus. Eiusdem venatio ad Ascanium Cardinalem

      VENEZIA : PER BERNARDINUM BINDONUM MEDIOLANENSEM SUMPTU VERO MELCHIORIS SESSAE, 1562. 1562 Venezia : per Bernardinum Bindonum Mediolanensem Sumptu vero Melchioris Sessae, 1562. In-8 (8) c. 167 c. (1) c. In fine: Gatto con topo in bocca, in cornice figurata. Motto: Dissimilium infida societas . Piena pergamena. Manoscritto sugl'usi medicinali del corallo all'ultima carta. Foro di tarlo al margine bianco superiore dalla carta 6 che si protrae per alcune decine di carte ed un altro dalla carta 120 alla 140. L'opera ebbe un successo straordinario, e venne stampata più di trenta volte, fino alla fine dell'8oo; la sua fortuna si deve soprattutto al poemetto finale di argomento venatorio: nei suoi 428 versi viene descritta una caccia organizzata dal Card. Ascanio Sforza, cui è dedicato, nei pressi di Tivoli, in vicinanza delle Acque Albule; battuta di caccia che venne seguita da un sontuoso banchetto ed alla quale partecipò anche l'autore. La "Venatio" è la prima opera di caccia in cui si accenni all'esistenza del fucile, col quale il tedesco Libs della Sicambria, qualificato dal Castellesi come l'inventore di tale arma, aveva ucciso un istrice. Castellesi, Adriano (da Corneto) latinista, grecista, ebraicista, nacque attorno al 1458, fu segretario di Adriano IV,che lo fece Cardinale, ebbe importanti nunziature , e fu anche in Inghilterra presso Enrico VII. Espertissimo negli affari, si arricchì grandemente, destando in tal modo l'invidia di Cesare Borgia, che tentò di avvelenarlo. Andato in esilio e ritornatone all'avvento di Leone X, dovette ritornarvi perché accusato di aver parte nella congiura del Card. Petrucci. Da questo momento di lui non si seppe più nulla: sembra che sia stato assassinato, a scopo di furto, da uno dei suoi servitori. (Ceresoli - Bibliografia ? su la caccia, la pesca?). Melchiorre Sessa, tipografo e libraio attivo a Venezia, figlio di Giovanni Battista il vecchio, stampò da solo dal 1506 al 1516; poi fu in società con Pietro Ravani, e dal 1526 riprese a lavorare da solo. Sposò Veronica Barone ed ebbe 6 figli. Come editore, si servì di molte tipografie, tra cui quelle dei Nicolini da Sabbio, dei Giglio, di Bernardino Bindoni e di Francesco Rampazetto. Vianello ipotizza che abbia usato sia l'insegna della gatta che quella della nave. La sua bottega si trovava a San Giuliano, vicino al campo San Lio. Morì probabilmente nel 1565; la firma Melchiorre Sessa dal 1555 al 1565 potrebbe riferirsi sia al padre che al figlio omonimo. Ceresoli 140.

      First edition of Ptolemy's <i>Analemma</i>, which "explained how to determine the position of the sun at a given moment in any latitude by an orthogonal projection using three mutually perpendicular planes" (DSB III 364). <br/><br/> "[The] <i>Analemma</i> [survives], apart from a few palimpsest fragments, only in William of Moerbeke's Latin translation from the Greek. It is an explanation of a method for finding angles used in the construction of sundials, involving projection onto the plane of the meridian and swinging other planes into that plane. The actual determination of the angles is achieved not by trigonometry (although Ptolemy shows how that is theoretically possible) but by an ingenious graphical technique which in modern terms would be classified as nomographic. Although the basic idea was not new (Ptolemy criticizes his predecessors, and a similar procedure is described by Vitruvius ca. 30 b.c.), the sophisticated development is probably Ptolemy's" (DSB XI 197). <br/><br/> "[As] in the case of Ptolemy's <i>Planisphere</i>, no Greek text was available to Commandino (a portion was later recovered from a palimpsest); but an Arabic version had been translated into Latin. This was edited from the manuscript by Commandino (Rome, 1562). Besides his customary commentary, he added his own essay <i>On the Calibration of Sundials</i> of various types, since he felt that Ptolemy's discussion was theoretical rather than practical" (DSB III 364). <br/><br/> Adams P2216; Riccardi I 360; Renouard 173:4.. 4to (225 x 160 mm), ll [iv] 93 [3], contemporary red morocco, boards with gilt ornamental figure, all edges gilt, capitals with some proffesional surface restoration, otherwise unrestored and with the original end papers, first four leaves with a light brown stain to lower right corner but in generall clean, a wide margined copy

        La Descrittione dell&#39;Africa

      1562. THE MAP THAT INFLUENCED THE CARTOGRAPHY OF AFRICA FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY AND A HALF. Copper-plate engraving: 191/8" x 241/2" Venice: Paolo Forlani, 1562. References: R.V. Tooley, "Maps in Italian Atlases of the Sixteenth Century," Imago Mundi 3 (1939), n. 67; David Woodward, The Maps and Prints of Paolo Forlani (Chicago, 1990), n. 10.01; Robert W. Karrow., Mapmakers of the Sixteenth Century and Their Maps (Chicago, 1993), 30/98.1. In 1546, the Venetian Council of Ten issued an order that a map of Africa be prepared for the "Sala del Scude" of the Palazzo Ducale (Doge&#39;s Palace). This task was entrusted to the most prominent Italian cartographer of the sixteenth century, Giacomo Gastaldi. More than two-hundred years later, in the 1760s, Gastaldi&#39;s map of Africa was painted over and the original lost to posterity. It was preserved, however, in the form of this splendid printed version, finely engraved and published by Paolo Forlani in 1562. Gastaldi (see also nos. 19-21, 23-26) was the principal cartographer of the Venetian school of mapmaking and one of the foremost geographers of the sixteenth century, rivaled only by his northern European counterpart, the great Gerard Mercator. A native of the Piedmont region, Gastaldi was official Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic. One of the foremost authorities on sixteenth-century European mapmakers, Robert Karrow, has described him as "one of the most important cartographers of the sixteenth century. He was certainly the greatest Italian mapmaker of his age." His colleague Paolo Forlani (see also nos. 14-15), who issued this printed version of Gastaldi&#39;s map of Africa, gained prominence in the Venetian map trade as an engraver and publisher. This map is a prime example of Forlani&#39;s finest work, characterized by crisp engraving, attention to detail and an elegant linear aesthetic. Africa had long held the European popular imagination and, like the New World, was the object of many voyages of discovery. From the early fifteenth century, the nautical school of Henry the Navigator had been extending Portuguese knowledge of the African coastline. In 1488 Bartolomeu Diaz rounded the Cape of Good Hope, and in 1497-1498 Vasco da Gama successfully landed at the southwestern coast of the Indian subcontinent. At the same time, Africa itself became a target for exploration, in part because the European discovery of the Americas in 1492 was followed by a surge in the slave trade. This industry, though a dark moment in history, did stimulate the production of better maps, and Gastaldi&#39;s delineation of Africa was perhaps the most accurate of its time.. Book.

        Das sibend, acht vnd neünt Buch, des hochberühmbten Mathematici Euclidis Megarensis.Augsburg: Valentine Ottmar, 10 April 1555.

      Very rare first appearance of any part of Euclid's work in German, and one of the earliest vernacular editions (preceded only by Italian translations). This is a fine copy with a distinguished provenance.<br/><br/>Although this work contains only three of Euclid's 'books' 7-9, it contains essentially all of his results relating to arithmetic and number theory, and forms a coherent collection. The six earlier books, first published in German translation in 1562, treat the geometry of lines and circles, while the later books deal mainly with three-dimensional geometry. Book 7 deals strictly with elementary number theory: divisibility, prime numbers, and the Euclidean algorithm for finding the greatest common divisor and least common multiple. Here Euclid also establishes the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, that (in modern terms) every positive integer can be written as a product of primes in an essentially unique way. Book 8 deals with proportions in number theory and geometric sequences. Book 9 applies the results of the preceding two books. Here is Euclid's great proof that there are infinitely many prime numbers. He also gives the sum of a geometric series, and the construction of even perfect numbers (i.e. numbers that are equal to the sum of their divisors).<br/><br/>The editor of the present work, Johann Scheubel (1494-1570), was professor of mathematics at the University of Tübingen. Scheubel had earlier produced a Latin edition of Books I-VI (Basel, 1550); an arithmetic text, <i>De numeris et diversis rationibus seu regulis computationum opusculum</i> (Leipzig, 1545), in which he found binomial coefficients by means of a Pascal triangle a century before Pascal made that device famous; and an algebra text, <i>Algebrae compendiosa facilisque descriptio</i> (Paris, 1552).<br/><br/> Provenance: 1. Jakob Fugger (1542-98), member of the famous German family of merchant princes. Then the richest family in Europe, the Fuggers were generous patrons of the arts and learning and philanthropists, notably at Augsburg, their principal residence. Their fortune was largely built on a virtual monopoly in the mining and trading of silver, copper, and mercury. 2. Constantin Caratheodory (1873-1950) was a distinguished mathematician who made significant contributions to the theory of functions, the calculus of variations and measure theory. He held a number of academic posts, eventually succeeding Felix Klein at Göttingen. <br/><br/>Very rare: No copies in the major collections of Macclesfield, Honeyman, Horblit, or De Vitry. The last collection included just under 200 editions of Euclid. We can locate no auction records from the past 50 years. OCLC: Brown, Columbia, British Library, National Library of Wales. <br/><br/>Thomas-Stanford, C. Early editions of Euclid's Elements, XVI (p. 54); Steck, M. Bib.
