        De revolutionibus orbium coelestium, libri VI . . . Narratio prima, per M. Georgium Ioachimum Rheticum ad D. Ioan. Schonerum scripta SECOND EDITION OF COPERNICUS’ DE REVOLUTIONIBUSAND FIRST WITH RHETICUS’ NARRATIO PRIMA

      Basel: Petri, [1566]. With printer’s device on title and verso of last leaf and numerous text woodcuts and tables. Contemporary vellum, author and title in ink on spine; title page repaired on upper corner and on fore-edge. A fine, clean copy. Second edition of Copernicus’ epochal work. Copernicus (1473-1543), the founder of modern astronomy, was the first to propound the theory of planetary orbits. This work revealed one of the greatest advances in human thought proving that the Earth was not after all the central point around which the entire universe revolved. Copernicus initially was hesitant to have his system printed, believing that any suggestion that the Earth moved would be considered heretical and cause him trouble. It was likely that this edition “was printed soon after the 1543 printing had sold out; the two editions must have been almost identical in size because the same number of each printing survive (Gingerich).”& & Added here for the first time is Rheticus’ famous tract, Narratio prima, printed in the form of a letter to his teacher Joh. Schoener, the Nuremberg astronomer. This great rarity, first published in 1540, contains the actual first announcement of Copernicus’s system and has exercised a profound influence on all succeeding scientific endeavors. Rheticus, a disciple and friend, surveys the principal features of Copernicus’ heliocentric universe and describes the new discoveries made by Copernicus – probably the most important scientific text of the sixteenth century.&

      [Georg Raben, with Sigmund Feyrabends und Simon Huters], Frankfurt am Mayn 1566 - Small folio, 34 by 21 cm, 13 by 8 inches. [6], ccxliii, [3], [4], lxxxi. Early coloring sets this copy apart. Abundant woodcuts attributed to Josse Amman and Feyerabend. Brunet IV 1471. The illustrations depict, of course, jousting tournaments, but also banquets, music-making, courtship and festivities that went along with the tournaments and military marches and activity that were the real impetus for the tournament and its particular culture. In addition many of the decorative devices and many coat-of-arms are colored. This is an early history of tournaments, and surely the most comprehensive on the topic at the time of its appearance and still a meaty work on the topic, notwithstanding some inaccuracies. As might be expected, the illustrations show everyone in typical mid-sixteenth century attire regardless of actual period. Remarkable about the color is the variety of color employed in the better examples. While there are places where the colors appear to have been daubed in a looser wash manner, overall the colors were carefully and neatly applied and the result is a far livelier pictorial element than otherwise would have been the case. The color also served the practical objective of bringing out the detail. There are 116 color pictures in all, generally measuring 10.5 by 14 cm, with some of the images repeated a few times. In addition there are 74 pages with images of coat-of-arms hand-colored. Approximately half of these pages have multiple images on the page. Some coat-of-arms reappear several times. Finally counted were 26 leaves with hand-colored decoration or decorative devices. There are actually three parts of this book, or perhaps one might think of it as three works bound in one, and the other parts have their own titles. The second title is "Warhafftige Beschreibunge aller kurzweil und Ritterspil . . . " and the third part is entitled: Des Allerdurchleuchtigste Grossmechtigsten Keyser Carols dess funfften froliche Gluckselige Ankunfft . . . " (Please be aware that the German is Mitteldeutsch or early modern and thus the spellings are at considerable variance with contemporary German.) Bound in period pigskin, with intricate stamped ornamentation and a regal figure in the center. The off white patina has considerable soilage darkening very much in keeping with age. Later spine label chipped around edges. Small stamp at base of spine, possibly a library stamp, but this is a rare instance in which the stamp seems fitting and is not the least bit disconcerting. One of two antique metal clasps has piece broken off. Some chips along edges of the title page and some pages within have chips or minor losses and/or closed tears. One leaf had largish corner loss and was remedied with new paper and handwritten or manuscript version of the still comparatively small loss of text. There are a few repaired tears. In general stains and soilage are minor.

        Libro Primo d?Architettura? nelquale con facile & breve modo si trata de primi principii della Geometria

      One of the first modern works on architecture. 1566. Venice. Francesco Senese. In 4to (235 mm x 168 mm). 219 ff. [273] + 1 [blank] + 52 ff. Eighteen century half calf over boards, spine flat tooled in gilt, lettering piece; spine restored, and minor rubbing. First title page with small foxing spots, else a generally fresh and clean copy.First quarto edition; enhanced, and illustrated with the same woodcuts as the Sabbio and Sessa editions. Serlio (1475 ?" 1554) was born in Bologna, he studied drawing and perspective; in 1514 he moved to Rome where he studied under Bramante, a famed Roman architect. His treatise appeared in parts, beginning with the fourth book in 1537. Serlio´s is one of the first great-illustrated architectural treatises of the Renaissance. This copy includes the "Extraordinary Book of Doors" that was added to some copies of this edition, and not present in earlier editions. The success was immediate, translated into Italian, Latin and English. "The first genuine advance in architectural illustration seems to have been made by Serlio, and his Libro Terzo set the type of architectural illustration in Italy for the rest of the century" (Fowler 308). The work is divided into books, each dealing with a different subject: book I and II study geometry, perspective, and theatrical scenery; book III deals with Roman antiquities; book IV deals with structures and buildings; and book V deals with churches mostly. Fowler, 327. Cicognara, 668.

        Zoroaster nova, brevis, veraq[ue] de universa philosophia. Wittenberg, Ex officina Cratoniana (Johann Krafft), 1593. Small 8vo (16 x 10 cm). With an arabesque woodcut decoration on the title-page, 3 woodcut tailpieces (2 arabesque and 1 with a mask and scrolls) plus 1 repeat, and 5 decorated woodcut initials. Set in roman type, with the dedication in italic. Late 17th- or early 18th-century stiff marbled-paper wrappers.

      Caillet 5534; Thorndike XI, 11, p. 461; VD16 J237 (9 copies); Wellcome I, 3454; WorldCat (3 copies). A work of occult philosophy by the Silesian-born Johann Jessen (1566-1621), professor of anatomy at the University of Wittenberg and later rector of Charles University in Prague. It is largely based on Francesco Patrizi's Nova de universis philosophia (1591), which emphasized the study of occult secrets hidden in sources from the ancient world, but it gives a different orientation by placing the study of the order of the cosmos, rather than the study of life, in the central position. It includes the author's dedication to Friedrich Wilhelm I, Duke of Saxony-Wiemar, his preface (referring to Egyptian hieroglyphs), and a laudatory verse by Salomon Frenzel von Friedenthal (1564-1605). Jessen joined the anti-Hapsburg Bohemian Protestant revolt at Prague in 1618 and was executed in 1621, soon after the Bohemian defeat at the Battle of the White Mountain.The book is interesting typographically as a late example of the continued use of so-called "Venetian" roman types (in the variant form introduced Peter Schoeffer the younger and others north of the Alps in the 1510s) a century after Aldus had introduced the very different style that was to supersede them.Slightly browned but in good condition, with minor, mostly marginal water stains and a and a small abrasion on the title-page, not affecting the text or ornament.

      Bologna, A. Benatius, 1566.. Titel, 3 nn. Bl., fol. 114, 2 nn. Bl., fol 36. Mit einigen figürlichen HSchnitt-Initialen und zahlr. schematischen Holzschnitten. Folio (29,5 x 20,5 cm). Späterer HLederbd mit Rückenschild.. Berieben bzw. beschabt, etwas bestoßen und fleckig; Außengelenke am oberen Kapital geplatzt (und fixiert); alte Inventarnummer (in Blaustift) auf Titelei, hier auch alt hinterlegter Ausschnitt (kein Textverlust); Inventarnummer auf fliegendem Vorsatz gestempelt; Randfleck auf fol. 17, sonst sehr sauberes, breitrandiges Exemplar. Apollonius (ca. 262-190 v. u. Z.), neben Euklid und Archimedes der bedeutenste Mathematiker des Altertums (nur von den beiden ersten sind authentische Schriften überliefert), verfaßte 8 Bücher über die Kegelschnitte, von denen 7 erhalten sind, davon wurden I-IV erst 1270 ins Lateinische übersetzt, während die Bücher V-VIII unbekannt blieben. Die Handschrift einer arabischen Übersetzung (um 800 n. u. Z.) umfaßte die Bücher I-VII und wurde von dem Arabisten und Diplomaten Jacob Golius 1629 wahrscheinlich in Marokko erworben (vgl. Jöcher I, 1280f); nach seinem Tod (1667) gelangte das Manuskript in den Besitz des Astronomen und Mathematikers Edmund Halley (1656-1742), der es schließlich 1710 zusammen mit einer Rekonstruktion des verschollenen Buches VIII in Griechisch und einer lateinischen Übertragung herausgab (Poggendorff I, 1005; iSTC 34). Die Bücher I-IV, zu diesem Zeitpunkt die einzig bekannten, erschienen in einer lateinischen Übersetzung des Giovanni Battista Memmo (J.-B. Memus) 1537 zum ersten Mal im Druck (Brunet I, 347); vorliegende Bologneser Ausgabe des Federigo Commandino (1509-1575) war bis zur Halley-Edition die einflußreichere und wurde von den zeitgenössischen Mathematiker wie Descartes, Newton, J. Kepler, B. Pascal, P. de Fermat oder G. Desargues bei ihren Arbeiten nutzbringend rezipiert. Apollonius' Bedeutung für den Zeitraum von 1800 Jahren erhellt sich daraus, dass er u. a. eine einheitliche Methode zur Berechnung von Kegelschnitten entwickelte, die in ihren Formen von Parabel, Ellipse und Hyperbel rein geometrisch (nicht arithmetisch wie bei den Vorläufern) vorgestellt wurden als Schnitte einer festen Ebene durch denselben Kegel in verschiedenen Neigungswinkeln (die Bezeichnungen Ellipse und Hyperbel stammen von ihm). Zudem lieferte er die Grundlagen zur 'Rettung der paradoxen Phänomene' (z. b. die 'rückläufige Bewegung' des Mars), die Ptolemäus bei Begründung seines geozentrischen Weltbildes erklären mußte. Unter dem Einfluß von Platon legte er die Grundlage zur Theorie der epizyklischen Planetenbahnen, nach der die Planeten zwar kreisförmige Bahnen haben, deren Mittelpunkte jedoch sich ihrerseits auf Kreisbahnen der Erde bewegen. Provenienz: aus dem Besitz von Vincenzo Scamozzi (ca. 1550 Vincenza -1616 Venedig), Baumeister und Architekturtheoretiker ("Architettura universale". Venedig 1615) , mit dessen hs. Besitzvermerk auf Titelei. V. S. als neoklassischer Interpret Palladios nahm Rekurs auf die platonische Ideenlehre und ordnete die Funktion seiner zahlreichen Gebäude (u. a. dem Palazzo Trissino-Barton) einem ahistorischen Begriff von Schönheit unter, wie er ihn z. B. in der Mathematik verwirklicht sah. Konsequent also, dass in seiner umfänglichen Bibliothek Apollonius auch als Basis für Berechnungen nicht fehlen durfte; möglicherweise stammt die Glosse "Hyperbola Ellipsi Circuli" (fol. 25r) zu einem Holzschnitt ebenfalls von seiner Hand. Poggendorff II 765; Thieme/B. 29. 524-27; Hartmann²: Baukunst. II, 232.

        Il Disegno Del Discoperto Della Nova Franza

      Venice: Bolognino Zaltieri, 1566. . Venice: Bolognino Zaltieri, 1566. Single sheet, float-mounted and framed (10 4/8 x 15 6/8 inches). EXCEPTIONALLY FINE engraved map of North America. THE EARLIEST PRINTED MAP DEVOTED TO THE CONTINENT OF NORTH AMERICA, AND THE FIRST MAP TO SHOW THE STRAIT OF ANIAN WHICH SEPARATES AMERICA FROM ASIA The modest dimensions of Paolo Forlani's rare and finely engraved map of North America belie its signal importance in the history of New World cartography. It is the earliest printed map devoted solely to North America, the first to portray that landmass as a separate continent and the first to show the so-called Strait of Anian separating America from Asia at the approximate location of the Bering Strait (in a purely coincidental instance of early geographical myth dovetailing with the discoveries of later exploration). North America "began to take shape geographically in the printing shops of Venice during the middle decades of the sixteenth century. The first depictions of the American continent appeared on early world maps as the eastern component of the Asian land mass" (Cohen). Entitled "Il Disegno Del Discoperto Della Nova Franza, il quale s'e hauuto ultimamente dalla nouissima nauigatione de' Franzesi in quel luogo" (or, 'The Drawing of the Discovery of New France, recently derived from the Newest Voyage of the French in that Region") Forlani based his rendering largely on the western part of a world map published by his colleague, the great Venetian cartographer Giacomo Gastaldi, several years before. Gastaldi had been the first to formulate the concept of the Strait of Anian, a name that probably originated with Ania, a Chinese province mentioned in a 1559 edition of Marco Polo's travels. Forlani's early graphic depiction of Gastaldi's mistaken theory, which persisted well into the eighteenth century, makes this map a cornerstone work in the mapping of America. In the early 1560s, Forlani also published a map of South America and the West Indies, 'La descrittione de tutto il Peru', and with this 1565 map of North America he completed his coverage of the New World. The map stretches from Greenland down the coast of Canada and the Atlantic Seaboard to the West Indies, including a corner of South America, and from the coast of China in the west to the Azores and Cape Verde in the east. Until fairly recently, the map was attributed to Venetian publisher Bolognino Zaltieri, whose name and imprint appear on the second state, published in 1566. As David Woodward has demonstrated, however, authorship should be ascribed to Forlani, who sold some copperplates - including, presumably, the one used to print this map - to Zaltieri sometime around late 1565 or early 1566. Zaltieri then altered the plate, adding his own name, and proceeded to issue his own examples of the map, in a practice of appropriation (or licit plagiarism) that was quite common in the fluid world of Venetian map publishing. This is an extremely rare example of this fascinating map, a landmark in the history of the mapping of America, here in outstanding condition. Cohen, "Mapping of the West", pages 29-30. R.V.

The deluxe 'Hellmouth' edition, limited to just 25 copies; a further 45 copies were issued in full black leather and 606 copies in cloth & dust jacket. A fine copy without dust jacket, as issued. ¶ James VI and I (1566 - 1625) was King of Scotland as James VI, and King of England and King of Ireland as James I. His 1597 work 'Daemonologie' was written after his involvement in the North Berwick witch trials. While traveling by ship, the King’s journey was beset with an unexpected storm at sea which nearly sank the vessel and greatly delayed the voyage. The storm was blamed on witchcraft, and several nobles of the Scottish court were implicated. This led to the first major persecution of witches in Scotland, and James involved himself firsthand in the prosecution. Many were investigated and confessions extracted by torture, providing damning details of Sorcery, Devilry and reports of the Witches Sabbath. The results of those confessions serve as a foundation for his 'Daemonologie', which supports the demonic origins of the black arts and witchcraft, as opposed to the works of Reginald Scot and Johannes Weirus, whom James debunks in the Preface to this work. An important work: James was responsible for the wholesale persecution of witches - between 1603 and 1625, there were about twenty witchcraft trials a year in Scotland – nearly 450 in total. Half of the accused were found guilty and executed. This work serves as a monument of the terrible inhumanity society can be capable of.

        Quadernuccio di Ma Luisa Donna fu di Luigi de Medici segnato A, legato con coreggie verde

      [Florence or Tuscany],: , 1566-1573.. [Florence or Tuscany], 1566-1573. Agenda format (334 x 111 mm). 96 leaves: 1-616 (6/14-16 blank), page openings foliated to 92 (foliation in arabic numerals on versos and in roman numerals on recots), 3 blank leaves at end. Irregular line numbers, not more than 32/33, written in brown ink in a fluent Italian cursive, the pages crossed through diagonally. Small loosely inserted slip inside front cover identifying the owner. Contemporary Italian tacketed laced-case parchment stationery binding with fore-edge flap, sewn on two sewing supports consisting of a pair of goatskin bands originally dyed dark green (the color mostly faded to brown), stitched with intersecting parchment strips forming X’s; upper cover with lthe word “Quadernuccio” in neat gothic lettering at top scraped neatly out of the parchment, and a large ornate capital A at center within circular pen-and-ink cartouche, no. 113 lettered in later ink below, thong attachments for fore-edge flap partially preserved, the inner parchment unlined, printer’s waste used in neat backing thong inside front cover.***& & A fascinating sixteenth-century manuscript documenting six years of expenses for a wealthy female member of the Medici family, the head of her household; preserved in its original stationery binding, and in impeccable condition.& & The first page of the quadernuccio contains a devout reflexion or prayer at top, and the above title at center. The inserted slip bears the same title and the date 1566 but uses a different form of Luisa’s father’s name (?Buigliano?). The earliest date mentioned in the accounts is 26 March 1566; the latest is the 13th of August [1573]. & & Signora Luisa clearly supervised all the familial expenses, presumably after the death of her father: covering the years 1566-1573, the account book provides a straight chronological list of expenses ranging from the many costs entailed by the family’s house and estate to domestic expenses including wine and writing supplies. Payments are made to repair the palazzo (palagio del podesta) and to dig sewer drainages; the gamekeeper Matteo di Cristofano, whose name appears repeatedly, is paid his salary; there are costs for grinding the wheat; the mule needs to be shoed. At home barrels of vin santo are a regular expense, and there are costs for writing supplies, including an entry for an account book similar to this one (un quaderno di fogli per fare un quadernuccio...). & & Luisa’s father Luigi de’ Medici, one of the less illustrious scions of the dynasty, is briefly identified in the online Medici archive a Captain in Livorno from a document dated 1538. The scrawled entries were no doubt recorded in the notebook by the family’s busy caretaker or majordomo.The title indicates that the account book is marked with an A and bound with green leather straps.

        CONICORUM LIBRI QUATTUOR Una cum pappi Alexandrini Lemmatibus, et Commentariis Eutocii Ascalonitae SERENUS OF ANZI Libri Duo. Unus de Secrione Cylindri, alter de Sectione Conti

      Bologna: Alessandro Benacci , 1566. Bologna: Alessandro Benacci , 1566. First Commandino edition. Folio (215mm x 315mm), two parts in one volume as issued. Contemporary vellum lettered in manuscript to the spine. Minor repairs to the head of the spine. Contents sometime recased. Internally well margined, with some spotting and occasional early marginalia, but a generally clean and fresh copy. Illustrated with woodcut diagrams throughout the text and woodcut initials. The most important text on conic sections, influencing many later scholars including Ptolemy, Newton, and Descartes. "The invention of conic sections is attributed to Menaechmus (4th cent. BC), a member of Plato's Academy at Athens. Various species of conic sections were obtained by truncating an acute-angled, right-angled and obtuse-angled cone by a plane perpendicular to the generator of the cone.... The greatest ancient writer on conic sections was Apollonius of Perga (c.262-c.190 BC). His famous work Conics consisted of eight books and contained 487 propositions. Apollonius introduced the terms ellipse, parabola and hyperbola and showed that various sections of the cone can be obtained by varying the inclination of the intersecting plane... The Latin translation of the first four books of Apollonius by Gianbattista Memo appeared in Venice in 1537. The most notable printed edition of Apollonius' Conics in the sixteenth century is based on the translation by Federico Commandino (1506-1575), who played the key role in the project of editing, translating and publishing classical Greek mathematical texts under the auspices of the Duke of Urbino."

        De revolutionibus orbium coelestium, libri VI . . . Narratio prima, per M. Georgium Ioachimum Rheticum ad D. Ioan. Schonerum scripta.

      Petri [1566]. With printer?s device on title and verso of last leaf and numerous text woodcuts and tables. Contemporary vellum, author and title in ink on spine; title page repaired on upper corner and on fore-edge. A fine, clean copy. Second edition of Copernicus? epochal work. Copernicus (1473-1543), the founder of modern astronomy, was the first to propound the theory of planetary orbits. This work revealed one of the greatest advances in human thought proving that the Earth was not after all the central point around which the entire universe revolved. Copernicus initially was hesitant to have his system printed, believing that any suggestion that the Earth moved would be considered heretical and cause him trouble. It was likely that this edition ?was printed soon after the 1543 printing had sold out; the two editions must have been almost identical in size because the same number of each printing survive (Gingerich).? Added here for the first time is Rheticus? famous tract, Narratio prima, printed in the form of a letter to his teacher Joh. Schoener, the Nuremberg astronomer. This great rarity, first published in 1540, contains the actual first announcement of Copernicus?s system and has exercised a profound influence on all succeeding scientific endeavors. Rheticus, a disciple and friend, surveys the principal features of Copernicus? heliocentric universe and describes the new discoveries made by Copernicus ? probably the most important scientific text of the sixteenth century.

        Costantinopoli

      Venedig, G. F. Camocio, 1566-71. 18,5 : 25,7 cm.. Sehr seltene, frühe Ansicht von Konstantinopel (Istanbul) aus Camocios Isole Famose. Zeigt die Stadt aus der Vogelperspektive, ausgeschmückt mit mehreren Schiffen und einer Kompassrose. Camocios Druckvermerk in der unteren rechten Ecke 'Appreßo Gioan Francesco Camocio'. Unterhalb der Abbildung eine Legende zu den wichtigen Gebäuden, Kirchen und Orten von a-z, aa-zz und aaa-nnn. Dieses Blatt wurde vom ersten Zustand der Platte gedruckt, ohne die Zahl in der unteren rechten Ecke und ist äußerst selten auf dem Markt zu finden. Zu den begehrtesten kartographischen Arbeiten zählen die Italienischen Atlanten des 16. Jahrhunderts. Neben den sogenannten Lafreri Atlanten, einer individuellen Zusammenstellung von Karten verschiedener Größen, entstanden bei den Venezianischen Verlegern Camocio und Bertelli auch einige Atlanten mit Karten von einheitlicher Größe und Machart. Einer der wichtigsten dieser Atlanten, ist der erstmals 1566 von Camocio herausgegebene Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime, eine Zusammenstellung von Karten der Gebiete, welche unter Einfluss der Venezianer standen. Dargestellt wird die Situation während der Belagerung Wiens 1566, sowie die Auseinandersetzung zwischen den Venezianern und Türken im Mittelmeer während der Jahre 1570-1573. Beinhaltet sind vornehmlich Karten der Mittelmeer Küsten, die wichtigsten Inseln, sowie Stadtansichten. Der Atlas wurde zwischen 1566 und 1574 von Camocio ohne Titel herausgegeben, ab 1575 erschien die Kartensammlung, gedruckt von den original Platten, bei Donato Bertelli. - Mit Rändern, selten, da Blätter aus Camocios Isole Famose zumeist am oder in den Plattenrand beschnitten sind. Zwei kleine Wurmlöcher hinterlegt. Etwas fleckig. Guter, kräftiger Abdruck. - A very rare, early view of Constantinople (Istanbul) from Camocio's Isole Famose. Showing the city from above, decorated with several ships and a compass rose. Camocio's imprint in the lower right corner 'Appreßo Gioan Francesco Camocio'. Below a key from a-z, aa-zz and aaa-nnn, naming important buildings, churches and places. This copy is printed from the first state of the plate, without the number in the lower right corner and is extremely rare to find on the market. The Italian atlases of the 16th Century are among the much sought after cartographic rarities. Besides the so-called Lafreri atlases, a compilation of individual maps of various sizes, the Venetian publishers Camocio and Bertelli issued a few atlases with maps of uniform size and style. Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime is one of the most important of these atlases, issued first by Camocio in 1566 It comprises a collection of maps of the areas under the influence of the Venetians. Shown is the situation during the siege of Vienna in 1566, and the battle between the Venetians and Turks in the Mediterranean during the years 1570-1573. Mainly included are maps of the Mediterranean coasts, the main islands, and city views. The atlas was published between 1566 and 1574 by Camocio without a title, after 1575 it was issued by Donato Bertelli with a printed title, also printed from the original plates. - With margin, which is rare, since sheets from Camocio's Isole Famose often cut along or within plate marks. Two tiny worm holes backed. Some small tears in margin backed. Some staining. A good and strong impression.
