EUCLID.
[Colophon:] Pesaro: Camillo Franceschini, 1572. First edition of "the most important Latin translation [of Euclid] ... it was the foundation of most translations which followed it up to the time of Peyrard [1814]" (Heath, The Thirteen Books of Euclid's Elements, Vol. 1, p. 104). Euclid's Elements is the "oldest mathematical textbook still in common use today" (PMM). The Elements "exercised an influence upon the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible" (DSB). Federico Commandino was the most prolific Renaissance translator of Greek mathematical works, as well as the most mathematically competent. His translation was the first to be based upon a tolerably critical Greek original. Although thus far only the chief book-producing centers like Venice had been involved in printing Euclid, this new translation into Latin of the fifteen books of the Elements was produced in Pesaro, a provincial seaport on the Adriatic near Urbino. The first printed Latin translations of Euclid were the medieval translation from the Arabic by Campanus of Novara (Venice, 1482), followed by a Latin translation from the Greek by Bartolomeo Zamberti (Venice, 1505). These two translations, together with the editio princeps of the Greek (Basel, 1533), were the basis for all subsequent Latin editions for more than half a century, and for many translations after that. "However, the better part of this influence was interrupted suddenly and decisively by the fourth major version: the publication at Pesaro in 1572 of the Latin translation by Federico Commandino of Urbino.

Bayer Johann ( 1572 - 1625 ) Augsburg
Artist: Bayer Johann ( - 1625 ) Augsburg; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca 1603. - technic: Copper print; colorit: gouache; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 27,5 x 37,5; - description : Reperesentation of the constellatation triangolum in the northern fixed star. Legend and Mythology: The Ancient Greeks called Triangulum Deltoton, as the constellation resembled an upper-case Greek letter delta. Eratosthenes linked it with the Nile Delta, while the Roman writer Hyginus associated it with the triangular island of Sicily, formerly known as Trinacria due to its shape. It was also called Sicilia, because the Romans believed Ceres, patron goddess of Sicily, begged Jupiter to place the island in the heavens. Greek astronomers such as Hipparchos and Ptolemy called it Trigonon, and later, it was Romanized as Trigonum. Later, the 17th-century German celestial cartographer Johann Bayer called the constellation Triplicitas and Orbis terrarum tripertitus, for the three regions Europe, Asia, and Africa. Triangulus Septentrionalis was a name used to distinguish it from Triangulum Australe, the Southern Triangle.; - vita of the artist: Johann Bayer ( 1572- 1625 ) was a German lawyer and uranographer (celestial cartographer). Bayer had several interests outside his work, including archaeology and mathematics. However, he is primarily known for his work in astronomy; particularly for his work on determining the positions of objects on the celestial sphere. He remained unmarried and died in 1625. Bayer is most famous for his star atlas Uranometria Omnium Asterismorum ("Uranometry … [Click Below for Full Description]

Braun/Hogenberg Franz/ Georg ( 1572 - 1618 ) Köln

Damascus is the capital and likely the largest city of Syria. Nicolaus of Damascus, in the fourth book of his History, says thus: ;Abraham reigned at Damascus, being a foreigner, who came with an army out of the land above Babylon, called the land of the Chaldeans: but, after a long time, he got him up, and removed from that country also, with his people, and went into the land then called the land of Canaan, but now the land of Judea, and this when his posterity were become a multitude; as to which posterity of his, we relate their history in another work. Now the name of Abraham is even still famous in the country of Damascus; and there is shown a village named from him, The Habitation of Abraham.; - vita of the artist: Frans Hogenberg (1535 ? 1590) was a Flemish and German painter, engraver, and mapmaker.Hogenberg was born in Mechelen as the son of Nicolaas Hogenberg In 1568 he was banned from Antwerp by the Duke of Alva. He travelled to London, where he stayed a few years before emigrating to Cologne. He is known for portraits and topographical views as well as historical allegories. He also produced scenes of contemporary historical events.George Braun (1541-1622), a cleric of Cologne, was the principal editor of the "Civitates Orbis Terrarum".The first … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and HOGENBERG, Frans (fl. 1540-1590).
Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. - Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, margin staining, chipping) A stunning trio of views, featuring Montpellier, Tours, and Poitiers; taken from Braun and Hogenberg’s illustrative Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Presented as two smaller plans on top, and a landscape view of Poitiers on the bottom. Montpellier and Tours contain a letter guide to significant buildings within the city proper; Poitiers labels the buildings directly on the plan. Montpellier held its fame for its Cathedral and University. The Notre-Dames-des-Tables, recognizable for the tall spire overlooking the city, was a frequent stopping point for pilgrims on their way to the famed Santiago di Compostela during the Middle Ages. The University was founded in the 13th century, containing schools for medicine, arts, and law. Tours is viewed from a near bird’s eye perspective; showing off the city’s distinctive medieval center. The right bears the late Gothic cathedral of Saint-Gatien (built from 13-16th c). The abbey of Saint-Martin is here in tact – it was later destroyed in a fire in 1562. Poitier, the largest plan on this sheet, is engraved with the most precise detail; allowing a facilitated recognition to the significant buildings. Between the University and Royal Court of Law, Poitiers became an intellectual hub in the 16th century. This is perhaps the main reason for focusing on Poitiers in this sheet. The ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum’ (‘Atlas of the Cities of the World’) by Braun and Hogenburg is … [Click Below for Full Description]

EUCLID [Translated by Federico COMMANDINO]
Pesaro: Camillo Franceschini. Folio, ff. [xii], 255, [1, blank]. Contemporary vellum, at some time rebacked, later endpapers (some soiling, repair to gutter of O2 and outer margin of G4, not affecting text, first 6 leaves slightly short at fore-edge but otherwise matching, perhaps a result of the reback). Old ownership inscriptions to title (in French) and front free endpaper (in Italian), marginal annotations (in English) to one page. First edition of “the most important Latin translation [of Euclid] . It was the foundation of most translations which followed it up to the time of Peyrard [1814]” (Heath, The Thirteen Books of Euclid's Elements, Vol. 1, p. 104).

With a woodcut device on the title-page and at the end. Contemporary vellum, spine covered by a red paper with label and ink title, slightly rubbed and worn, a good and genuine copy.

E. Taddeo, Il manierismo letterario e i lirici veneziani del tardo Cinquecento, Rome, 1974, pp. 73-91). "Nel 1569 muore Girolamo Molino.

BRAUN, Georg & HOGENBERG, Frans
Cologne: Braun & Hogenberg. unbound. Two bird's-eye plans on one sheet. Copper engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 13" x 18.75".These two bird's-eye plans on one sheet depict the French cities of Chartres and Châteaudun. Chartres is shown from the southeast, with its famous cathedral at the center of the frame towering over the comparatively diminutive city around it. This prized church became the model for many other Gothic churches and is nearly synonymous with the city in which it is located. A number of lesser churches are also shown in detail, as are houses, fields, and gardens. Similarly detailed is the map of Châteaudun, shown from the east as to clearly illustrate how the city leans up against the ridge of the hill to its right. This city's prominent buildings are the 12th-century chateau at the top right and the church of La Madeleine at the upper left. Its seal and coat of arms are also rendered. he print is from Braun's city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and published between 1572 and 1617. Latin text on verso. The plans are in very good condition with some overall toning and wear to the title of the Chartres view. Chips in the margins not affecting the image. Some mat burn and margin folds from being previously framed. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," a collection of 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities. Hogenberg created the tables for the first … [Click Below for Full Description]
