Spiritalium liber. A Federico Commandino Urbinate, ex Graeco, nuper in Latinum conversis. Cum Privilegio Gregorij XIII. Pont. Max. Urbini, (D. Frisolini), 1575. Small 4to. Fine recent full vellum in old style with written title on back. Titlepage + 80 leaves (title unnumb. + F 180 with 4 leaves misnumb., e.g. F70 instead of 80). The dedicationleaf (unnumb.) after title missing. Text complete, fine and clean with broad margins. One large initial in woodcut and 89 large textillustrations in woodcut.. First edition of Heron's main work, being his first publication. The work stimulated and contributed substantially to the interest in pneumatics that arose suddenly in the late 16th century and led to the work of Toricelli and Boyle. The "Pneumatics" was not published in Greek until 1693. It is one of the major sources to our knowledge of the techniques and mechanics of Antiquity, and the many hydraulic and mechanical inventions by Hero are here depicted for the first time in print. The work includes studies of pneumatics and mechanics and include 89 illustrations of different inventions, such as siphons, fountains, engines, an account of a small stationary steamengine (which is of the form now known as Avery's patent), the doubleforce pump etc., which "by the union of (compressed) air, earth, fire, and water, and the concurrence of...elementary principles..., supply the most pressing wants of the human life, (or) produce amazement and alarm." The book describes many gadgets and magical tricks and includes the first suggestion of a steam engine (see f. 52).  Sarton, Introduction...Vol. I pp. 208 ff.

Arithmeticorum libri sex, et de numeris multangulis liber unus. Nunc primum Graece & Latine editi, atque commentariis illustrati. Auctore C. G. Bacheto. Paris: H. Drouart, 1621. First edition. Editio princeps of "the first systematic treatise on algebra" (David Eugene Smith, Rara Arithmetica). First printing of the Greek text, accompanied by Xylander's Latin translation (1575) and Bachet's commentary. "The most famous edition of the Arithemtic was that of Bachet de Mézeriac (1621). Bachet glimpsed the possibility of general principles behind the special problems of the Arithmetic and, in his commentary on the book, alerted his contemporaries to the challenge of properly understanding Diophantus and carrying his ideas further. It was Fermat who took up this challenge and made the first significant advances in number theory since the classical era." (John Stillwell, Mathematics and Its History, p.51). Fermat's son published in 1670 the second edition of this work adding his father's notes and an essay by Fermat's correspondent Jacques de Billy.<br/><br/> "Although entitled an arithmetic this is really a treatise on algebra, the first systematic one ever written. It contains, however, a good deal of matter upon Greek theory of numbers, notably the 'Clavdii Gasparis Bacheti Sebusiani, in Diophantvm, Liber Primus,' 'Liber Secundus,' and 'Liber Tertius.' A certain amount of this work also enters into the treatise itself, but this is generally algebraic in character, the standard problem requiring the finding of a number satisfying given conditions. This leads to numerous indeterminate (Diophantine) equations." (Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p.348). "One of Diophantus' major steps is the introduction of symbolism into algebra ... Diophantus called the unknown 'the number of the problem,' For our x<sup>2</sup> Diophantus used Δ<sup>Y</sup>, the Δ being the first letter of 'dynamis' (power) ... The appearance of such symbolism is of course remarkable but the use of powers higher than three is even more extraordinary. The classical Greeks could not and would not consider a product of more than three factors because such a product had no geometrical significance. On a purely arithmetic basis, however, such products do have a meaning; and this is precisely the basis Diophantus adopts." (Kline, Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times, p.13844). "Although many of the problemsolving methods we now know as algebra are very ancient, the explicit statement of the notion of an equation, that is, the equivalence of two formally different expressions for the same unknown quantity, was first formulated by Diophantus of Alexandria in the second or third century CE. As Bashmakova and Smirnova note [The Beginnings and Evolution of Algebra], 'Diophantus was the first to deduce that it was possible to formulate the conditions of a problem as equations or systems of equations; as a matter of fact, before Diophantus, there were no equations at all, either determinate or indeterminate. Problems were studied that we can now reduce to equations, but nothing more than that'." (Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, p. 391).<br/><br/> Honeyman 891.. Folio: 338 x 217 mm.

(20),285,(1 leaf blank)  (2),(6 = 1 unnumb. and paginated a,b,c,d),175,(1),(18) pp. Illustrated throughout with numerous figures in the text. Internally a fine, clean and widemargined copy. At verso of titlepage a previous owners name "H.C. Schumacher/ 1808/ Göttingen den 9 Dec", which is probably the astronomer Hans Christian Schumacher. In 1810 Schumacher was named extraordinary professor of astronomy at the University of Copenhagen; but he did not assume the duties connected with this post until after Thomas Bugge's death in 1815, serving in the meantime as director of the observatory at Mannheim (1813  1815). In 1817 the Danish government released Schumacher from his duties so that he could take part in the geodetic survey of Schleswig and Holstein.. Scarce first edition of this highly important work by Maurolyco, who was "doubtless, the greatest geometer of the sixteenth century" (Cajori, "History of Mathematics", p.153), and whom Galileo lists among his teachers. Pascal, in one of his letters, acknowledged him for introducing the "Method of mathematical Induction" (in the present work), a method he himself used in his "Traité du triangle arithmetique" (1665). "The method of mathematical induction... was recognized explicitly by Maurolycus in his 'Arithmetica' of 1575, and was used by him to prove, for example, that 1 + 3 + 5 + .... + (2n1) = n2." (Morris Kline "Mathematical Thought...", p. 272). Francesco Maurolyco (14941575), professor of mathematics in Messina, and city engineer, was a highly respected and hugely influential mathematician and astronomer. He allegedly wrote a large number of works, but only a few of them were printed, "although these are enough to show him as an outstanding scholar" (DSB IX:190); his "Opuscula mathematica" counts as one of his most important works, and it hugely influenced the scientific thought of the Renaissance. More specifically, Maurolyco's "Opuscula mathematica", which contains the greatest number of Maurolico's mathematical writings, constitutes a milestone in the history of mathematical thought as well as in astronomy. From the colophon in volume two it appears that the work lay in manuscript from 1557 to 1575, when it was finally printed for the first time. The work is in two separate parts, and a second edition of volume two appeared in 1580. The first volume deals mainly with astronomy and geometry, comprising seven tracts 1. De Sphaera liber unus. 2. Computus Ecclesiasticus in summam collectus. 3. Tractatus Instrumentatorum Astronomicarum. 4. Tractatus de Lineis horarijs. 5. Euclidis propositiones elementorum, libri Tredecimi solidorum tertij, regularium corporum primi. 6. Musicae traditiones. 7. De lineis horarijs libri tres. The second volume is devoted entirely to arithmetic "and contains, among other things, some notable research on the theory of numbers. This includes, in particular, a treatment of polygonal numbers that is more complete than that of Diophantus, to which Maurolico added a number of simple and ingenious proofs." (DSB IX:191)."Among the topics related to mathematics in the Opuscula are chronology (the treatise "Computus ecclesiasticus") and gnomonics (in two treatises, both entitled "De lineis horariis," one of which also discusses conics). The work also contains writing on Euclid's "Elements" (for which see also the unpublished Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris, manuscript Fonds Latin 7463). Of particular interest, too, is a passage on a correlation between regular polyhedrons, which was commented upon by J.H.T. Müller, and later by Moritz Cantor. [...]Maurolico's work in astronomy includes the first treatise collected in the Opuscula, "De sphaera liber unus," in which he criticized Copernicus. In another item of the collection, "De instrumentis astronomicis," Maurolico described the principal astronomical instruments and discussed their theory, use, and history...." (DSB IX:191).Adams M 919.  Riccardi VIII:38.  Smith "Rara Arithmetica", pp. 34850.  Augustus de Morgan "Arithmetical Books", p. 24 "On the properties of numbers and the doctrine of incommensurables (listing only volume two); a superior work to the mass of those which then treated of similar subjects" [Bookseller: Lynge & Søn A/S] 6.
