        La Descrittione dell'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'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'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's map of Africa, gained prominence in the Venetian map trade as an engraver and publisher. This map is a prime example of Forlani'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's delineation of Africa was perhaps the most accurate of its time.. Book.

      Engraved map, 39x52cm Venice 1562 or later Separately published, but has probably been included in an Italian composite atlas in a "made-to-order" collection. Italy was a center of mapmaking during the mid-sixteenth Century and the cartographers "produced maps that possessed a characteristic style and elegance that raised cartography to new levels of artistry and accuracy" Ginsberg page 70. The map is based on Cornelis Anthonisz "Caerte van oostlant" from 1543 (see Ginsberg entry 11).. Contemporary laid down on paper in order to fit into a composite atlas of the "Lafreri-type". Narrow or no margins on the sides, on the lower right hand-side shaved c. 1mm into the engraved surface. A fine and delicate copy of an important collector's item. Ginsberg "Printed Maps of Scandinavia and the Arctic 1482 - 1601" Entry 20, state 2 with the date but no attribution to Camocio)

        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. Euclideana, III.54 (p. 65); Grässe, II, p. 513; Riccardi, P. Bib. Euclidea, p. 19, no. 1555. Not in Schweiger, STC German, or Adams.. 4to: 203 x 145 mm. Pp. [12, last two blank], CCXXXIIII, [6, last two blank], woodcut diagrams in text. Contemporary German calf gilt, title of work and super ex-libris of Jakob Fugger; 'iac f' lettered in gilt on upper cover, edges gilt and gauffered, some light browning, lacking two pairs of ties, spine damaged at head and foot, corners slightly worn, remains of blue and yellow silk ties. Bookplate of Constantin Caratheodory on front paste-down. A fine and unsophisticated copy
