        De gli elementi d'Euclide libri quindici. Con gli scholii antichi

      Domenico Frisolino Urbino: Domenico Frisolino, 1575. Hard cover. Very Good/The first book printed in Urbino in the 16th century, and only the fourth overall. Urbino's presses lagged behind those of other Italian cities, due in part to Duke Federico's predilection for manuscripts. It seems Federico Commandino, the foremost mathematician of the generation before Galileo, had a press set up in his house. He hired in a printer, Domenico Frisolino, and there he published his translation into Italian of Euclid, based on his own Latin translation of 1572. Commandino died just as the sheets were coming off the press. His brother-in-law hastily attached a dedicatory letter (to Francesco Maria II della Rovere) explaining that the Commandino wanted the text to be available to "all who are served by mathematics," that is, even those who do not understand classical languages. Euclid's text is glossed by Commandino's running commentary, and illustrated with figures. . Folio; [16], 278 pages. Title page and all text pages ruled in typographic border. Typographic ornament on title page, 18 historiated initials (some duplicates) showing putti with geometer's instruments against a background of Italian hill towns. Numerous geometric figures in text. Bound in c19 (?) full mint green sheep, with red leather title label lettered and tooled in gilt. Edges stained indigo. Binding somewhat scuffed, with upper joint cracked; spine darkened and scuffed. Early ownership inscription on title page, later bookplate on front pastedown.Few marginal notes in contemporary hand. Very light occasional foxing present. References: Moranti, #4 ("un vero capolavoro tipografico" p.14); Gamba 1386 ("Nobile edizione").

        La Carte d'Europe

      Carta tratta dalla celebre Cosmographie Universelle de tout le Monde, traduzione francese della Cosmographia di Sebastian Muenster. La carta deriva da quella contenuta nella prima edizione del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius, 1570. A differenza del Muenster, questa opera è pubblicata in una sola edizione, e risulta pertanto molto rara. Le carte incluse sono differenti, e derivano da Ortelius, Braun & Hogenberg oltre che dal Muenster. Alcuni legni sono invece ripresi utilizzando le matrici pubblicate per la prima volta nel 1552 nella Cosmografia di Lione da Guèroult & Balthazar Arnoullet (1517-1556), nel Premier livre des figure set pourtraitz des villes plus illustre set renommées d?Europe, contenente 9 immagini urbane, perlopiù copiate dalla Cosmographia di Sebastian Muenster. Silografia, in buone condizioni. Rara. In 1575, François de Belleforest published a new edition of the Cosmographie Universelle of Münster (Germany). One section of city maps which in this work was reprinted, and this was the case for this map engraved in wood with finesse by Cruche.Woodcut, cut in the right side, in good condition.

        Delle Lettere.

      in Vinegia, (Gualtiero Scoto), 1575 - 1552.4 voll. in-8° (151x102mm), pp. 382, (2); ff. 168 [in questo secondo volume la numerazione procede per fogli]; pp. (16), 432; (16), 268; legatura antica p. pergamena rigida con unghie e titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa ai dorsi. Tagli azzurri. Impresa tipografiche ai frontespizi incise su legno con Mercurio con che impugna il caduceo e abbraccia Minerva con elmo piumato, scudo e due dardi nella mano sinistra; le due divinità tengono i piedi incrociantisi su un dado e un libro chiuso). Capilettera ornati incisi su legno. Svariate dedicatorie ai vari volumi e indici dei corrispondenti in principion di ciascun volume. Alcune annotazioni di antica mano. Sparsi aloni ed arrossature, ma bell'esemplare nell'insieme. Assieme di due rare edizioni veneziane di Gualtiero Scoto delle lettere bembiane, con i primi due volumi appartenenti all'impressione del 1575 e i restanti due all'antecedente del 1552 (di cui quella del '75 costituisce una nuova emissione). Il primo volume contiene le lettere "A sommi Pontefici, a Cardinali et ad altri Signori et persone Ecclesiastice, scritte. Con la giunta della Vitta del Bembo"; i restanti tre contengono le epistole "a suoi congiunti et amici, et altri gentili huomini venitiani". Al primo vol., una vita del Bembo scritta da Francesco Sansovino. "Pregiata raccolta.. ai quali tutti vuolsi che abbia prestato sua assistenza Carlo Gualterazzi da Fano", annota il Gamba, che ricorda, citando Apostolo Zeno, come i figli di Aldo Manuzio si valessero dei caratteri dello Scoto, che era stato anche proto nella loro stamperia e, ancora, come lo stesso Renouard (Annales des Aldes) dubitasse, infondatamente, "che esistessero i quattro volumi dell'anno 1552" (tale dubbio è un'ulteriore conferma della rarità dell'edizione). "Lo Scoto.. nel medesimo anno 1575 ristampò anche il Volume Terzo della sua edizione 1552.. Il Volume Quarto credo non siasi mai ristampato, trovandosi sempre colla data del 1552" (Gamba). Le epistole indirizzate dal letterato veneziano a pontefici, cardinali ed ecclesiastici d'alto bordo raccolte nei primi due volumi vennero composte quando il Bembo svolgeva l'incarico di segretario personale di papa Leone X. Il Bembo mantenne l'ufficio di segretario fino al 1521, anno della morte del pontefice, acquistandosi il favore sia della Corte che del papa, dal quale fu adoperato non solo come segretario (vergò anche la maggior parte delle bolle pontificie), ma anche come Consigliere e inviato in missioni diplomatiche.Le epistole bembiane costituiscono un modello insuperato dell'epistolografia rinascimentale per nitore ed eleganza di stile e, insieme, una fonte di grande valore per la ricostruzione della storia ecclesiastica e politico-diplomatica del periodo. STC Italian, p. 80. Adams, B-591 e B-595-596. Index Aureliensis, 116.432 (ed. 1552). EDIT 16 CNCE 5084 (ed. 1575) e EDIT16 CNCE 5040 (ed. 1552). Gamba, 139. Razzolini / Bacchi della Lega, pp. 49-50: "Assai rare" [ed. 1552]; "Rare" [ed. 1575]; "è assai difficile rinvenirli uniti, ed ordinariamente non sono che i primi due voll. che si trovano in commercio".

        Dispensatorium sive Pharmacorum Conficiendorum Ratio

      Ludouicum Cloquemin et Stephanum Michaelem, Lyon, 1575. Early Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Full pig skin finely blind tooled but rubbed and worn; still intact and attractive, though with three raised bands on the spine. One or two small repairs to the hinges - housed in a custom chemise and leather backed slipcase. Small octavo (duo-decimo in size but bound in 8vo). Copious notes in an early hand fill the margins and endpapers as well as between many lines of what was obviously a working copy. Scattered underlining and a few marks to the text itself, but nothing rendering it illegible. A few minor dampstains in the margins, rear endpaper loose. With an Epitaph for Cordus and an appendix; 474pp plus the index. Cordus (1515-1544) was the author of one of the Renaissance's first major herbals, and this, the first real (surviving) pharmacopoeia which was prepared in manuscript in 1542 but was so popular in Nuremberg that they printed it and it became the official pharmacopoeia of the city. Cordus, remarkably given his young age and other accomplishments, is most famous for his discovery of a method for synthesizing ether. Size: Octavo (8vo). Text is clean and unmarked.

        Roma.

      Dal "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", Colonia, 1575 circa. Incisione in rame, b/n, cm 34 x 49 (alla lastra) pi? margini; titolo in alto al centro, posto entro riquadro; legenda a 101 voci al margine inferiore, posta in due riquadri intervallati da due figure; testo latino al verso. George Braun (1541 - 1622), chierico di Colonia, ? stato il principale curatore del "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", per la prima volta pubblicato a Colonia nel 1572, poi edito ad Anversa e a Colonia fino al 1618, anno in cui apparve il sesto e ultimo volume. Queste le principali edizioni: 1572, vol. I; 1575, vol. II; 1581 vol. III; 1588 ca. vol. IV; 1598 ca. vol. V; 1618 vol. VI. Questi volumi vennero pubblicati originariamente in latino, e poi ristampati in tedesco e in francese. Il volume VI comprendeva un'edizione di piante supplementari. Dopo il 1618 le lastre divennero di propriet? di Abraham Hogenberg, il quale si incaric? delle successive riedizioni. Alla sua morte, le lastre vennero acquistate da Jan Jansson il quale, usandole come base, pubblic? un'edizione in otto volumi, riedita a sua volta negli anni successivi. Bella veduta prospettica della citt? di Roma attorno al 1550, resa con una prospettiva di ampio raggio a volo d'uccello. Uno strappo non perfettattamente restaurato al margine laterale destro invade la parte incisa per una decina di centimentri, ma ? comunque poco visibile; ingiallimento alla brachetta centrale e due presenze di umido in alto ai margini. Nell'insieme l'esemplare, in bella impressione, pu? comunque definirsi in pi? che accettabile stato di conservazione.

        Información en Derecho. En defensa de la Bula conservatoria, dada por los summos Pontifices Pio V y Gregorio XIII, á la Compañía de Iesus, Casas, Colegios y Religiosos dellas. [with] Bulla Pii V per Gregorium XIII. Edita qua conceditur Societati Iesu

      Extremely scarce Spanish work pertaining to the Societas Iesu in the 16th century. N.d. [c. 1575]. N.p. [Toledo or Madrid]. In 4to (273 mm x 195 mm). 18 ; 6. Unbound in recent folder, perfect. A very clean and fresh copy, with contemporary handwritten marginalia and only lightly soiled. An extremely scarce work, CCPBE (Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico Español) registers only two copies, apparently incomplete [both quoting 16 pages instead of 18, stating ?Error de pag., de p. 15 pasa a 18?]. Abreo (c.1528 ? 1592), studied at the University of Salamanca where he received a degree as a lawyer; although it is uncertain when he became a Jesuit, he was consulted from an early age as a Jesuit Jurist from the Provinces of Castille and Toledo. His opposition to the government of the Societas Iesu gained him fame and enemies, but according to the ?Diccionario histórico de la compañia de Jesus?, his character was well reputed by the Inquisition, so he was able to continue as a Jesuit.  There are no printer details, but it´s supposed to have been printed c.1575. In the work Abreu writes in favor of the Bula Conservatoria, given by Popes Pius V (1504 ? 1572) and Gregorius XIII (1502 ? 1585), both pertaining to the Jesuit Order and it´s confirmation. Palau, 987 (only for Abreu´s part).

Tidigare upplagor av "Rerum Germanicarum" hade utkommit i Basel 1548 och Köln 1574. Albert Krantz (1448-1517) var lärd tysk historieskrivare och gav ut flera krönikor över Nordens och de germanska områdenas historia i Adam av Bremens anda. Hans skrifter studerades bl.a. av Olaus Magnus som refererar till dem vid flera tillfällen i sina egna arbeten. Historikern Matti Klinge har visat hur Krantz uppfattning att antikens vandaler och Sveriges vender var samma folk påverkade Gustav Vasa att för att stärka sin historiska legitimitet lägga till vendernas och vandalernas konung i sin titel. Flera av Krantz krönikor fortsattes av David Chytraeus (1530-1600), lärjunge till Luther, teolog, historieskrivare och "en vän av allt svenskt" enligt Lindroth

        Americae Sive Novi Orbis, Nova Descriptio

      Abraham Ortelius, 1575. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 14 3/8" x 20". Outstanding early map of the Western Hemisphere dotted with ships and sea monsters. This was the first map of the Americas to appear in a modern atlas. At the time it was issued, the coastal areas of the New World had been fairly well explored, and Europeans were just beginning settlement and colonization. It is notable for depicting Spanish and Portuguese colonies in high detail, for these powers were notoriously protective of their geographical surveys. This is the third state of the first plate engraved for Ortelius's landmark map of the New World. It is distinguished from the second plate by the unusual bulge in the western coast of South America. This map is on the cover of Philip D. Burden's thorough reference book, "The Mapping of North America", see map number 39. Latin text on verso. Repairs to several tears lower left, abrasions, repaired hole 45 degrees S in the Atlantic Ocean, early repairs to upper left margin, but an overall pleasing copy of a famous map.

      Urbini, (D. Frisolini), 1575. Small 4to. Fine recent full vellum in old style with written title on back. Titlepage + 80 leaves (title unnumb. + F 1-80 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 steam-engine (which is of the form now known as Avery's patent), the double-force 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. - Adams H:369 - Poggendorff I: 1084

        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 &Delta;<sup>Y</sup>, the &Delta; 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.138-44). "Although many of the problem-solving 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.

        Libro di Marco Aurelio, con l'Horologio de' Prencipi.... con la giunta del Quarto Libro, già tradotto di lingua Spagnuola in Italiano

      Francesco Portonaris Venice: Francesco Portonaris, 1575. Leather. 4to (21 cm); 4 parts in one volume, each with separate title page and pagination: [24], 88; [4], 96; [4], 112; [4], 59 leaves. Publisher's woodcut device on title pages. Woodcut historiated and decorated initials, and head- and tailpieces. Eight woodcut medallions and two woodcut illustrations in text.Marginal notes. Bound in later (c17?) calf, with double gilt rules on both boards and gilt-tooled panels on spine. Covers somewhat worn, with upper joint cracked but holding. Not in standard bibliographies (Adams, BM STC Italian).In the 16th century, Antonio de Guevara was more famous in Europe than any other Spanish writer. His "Marco Aurelio con el reloj de príncipes," first published 1529, achieved extraordinary success, appearing in more than 40 editions in several languages before 1600. The "Marcus Aurelius" portion pretends to be a translation of a biography of the Emperor discovered in manuscript in the Medici library. The "Dial of Princes" (to use the 16th-century English title) belongs to the tradition of counsel and instruction to heads of state to lead just, courteous and well-rounded lives. This Italian edition by Francesco Portonaris da Trino includes the fourth book (absent in some editions) which deals with sobriety, dipsomania and gluttony. It has several charming illustrations.

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 + .... + (2n-1) = n2." (Morris Kline "Mathematical Thought...", p. 272). Francesco Maurolyco (1494-1575), 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. 348-50. - 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"
