HERO ALEXANDRINUS.
Urbino, s.n. (D. Frisolini), 1575. In - 4°; 2 cc., 80 cc. (mal numerate 70) con 87 incisioni xilografiche nel testo; legatura settecentesca in mezza pergamena, tassello con titolo in oro al dorso. Qualche macchiolina e brunitura. Prima edizione assoluta degli Spiritali (o Pneumatica), opera maggiore di Erone di Alessandria. La versione latina è di Federico Commandino, l'edizione del testo greco vedrà la luce solo nel 1693. Il testo è ampiamente illustrato da interessanti xilografie che raffigurano macchine, meccanismi, fontane, giochi ed esperimenti azionati dalla pressione dell'acqua, del vapore e del vento. Erone, matematico e inventore di Alessandria vissuto con tutta probabilità nel I sec. d.C. e le cui opere sono pervenute tramite la mediazione araba, propose meccanismi e invenzioni ammirate da tutti gli ingegneri del Rinascimento. Tra le macchine descritte e illustrate, particolarmente curiose sono la fontana detta di Erone, che zampilla grazie alla pressione dell'acqua, o la eolipila (o sfera di Eolo), che rappresenta il primo tentativo di trasformare il vapore in energia meccanica (si tratta della prima turbina a vapore della storia) o ancora un dispositivo (basato sulla dilatazione dell'aria) per far aprire le porte del tempio all'accensione del fuoco sull'altare.

CHOPPIN René;
Nicolas Chesneau, Paris, 1575. In-4 (234 x 175 mm), 8 ff. n. ch., 248 pp., 12 ff. n. ch. Vélin, décoration au centre des plats dans le style Renaissance de l'époque, composée d'arabesques et de filets dorés estampés, filet doré d'encadrement, dos lisse à faux nerfs dorés, petit fer en caissons, pièce de titre en maroquin brun, tranches dorées, exemplaire réglé, mouillure dans le coin inférieur d'un cahier (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale. De Privilegiis rusticorum aborde les privilèges légaux dont jouissaient les populations rurales dans le droit romain et civile. Comme Jean Bacquet et Jean Bodin, Choppin s'est servi du droit romain et des principes féodaux pour défendre un état centralisé dominé par le pouvoir royal. Les privilèges ruraux furent un sujet rarement exploré. Le traité de Choppin fit référence et fut réédité de nombreuses fois. Un travail bien écrit et remarquablement complet. René Choppin (Le Bailleul, 1537-Paris, 1606) fut un des plus célèbres jurisconsultes de son siècle. Il plaida longtemps au Barreau du Parlement de Paris, puis il vieillit dans son cabinet où il était consulté comme un des plus illustres oracles du droit. Il avait beaucoup d'esprit, d'érudition et une prodigieuse mémoire. Il se passionna pour l'antiquité et l'usage. Son second volume sur la coutume d'Anjou lui attira les honneurs de la ville d'Angers. Il fut anobli en 1578 par Henri III pour son De Domanio et son De Privilegiis rusticorum est ?rempli de belles recherches et de décisions très notables? (Moreri).

HERO (HERON) OF ALEXANDRIA. - [THE FOUNDATION OF HYDRAULICS]
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.

Caesar, [Caius Julius], and Andrea Palladio
Venice: Apresso Pietro de Franceschi, 1575. [58, including blank], 407,[1]pp. Small quarto. Full vellum, spine gilt extra, gilt labels. Two folding maps, forty double- page engraved plates. Some foxing and occasional marginal thumbing and soiling, some spotting to G1-2, trivial worm nibble in gutter of a number of the plates, a few old ink marginal annotations, still a very good copy. First Palladio edition of Caesar's COMMENTARIES, based on the translation by Francesco Baldelli (first published in 1554). Andrea Palladio (1508 - 1580) is most widely known for his highly influential designs and treatises on architecture. In his preface to this late, somewhat out-of- genre work, Palladio indicates that this illustrated edition of the Commentaries "originated in a project for his two sons, Leonida and Orazio. The sons died in 1572, and Palladio, finding the sketches they had made, decided to publish them with his own additions..." - Mortimer. Palladio engraved the fine plates, which depict overhead views of encampments and land and sea battles, fortified cities, river crossings, and bridge and wall construction. "Édition rechercheé à cause des gravures dont elle est ornée" - Brunet. The work was reprinted several times in the following decades. MORTIMER ITALIAN 16TH CENTURY BOOKS, 97. BRUNET I:1461.

When we moved back to the States; he was stationed in Omaha, Nebraska in 1972. In 1974, he took the book to an appraiser and had the book reviewed again and the appraiser gave him the same amount that the shop keeper gave to him then.

Good, original copies of the first editions of Marc-Antoine Muret’s much-commended rhetorical, philosophical and poetic works. Muret (or Muretus, 1526-85) was a French humanist and talented Latin author skilled—like his classical model, Cicero—in all genres. Among his admirers were Henry II and Ronsard. After years of wondering to escape persecution for his alleged homosexuality, he spent the rest of his life in Rome under the auspices of Cardinal Ippolito d’Este. This was the first florilegium of his complete works. His 23 orations, which bear the date of their first delivery, deal with rhetoric (e.g., a defence of ‘humanae litterae’, the conjunction of ‘eloquentia’ and philosophy); commentaries on Aristotle’s ‘Ni … [Click Below for Full Description]

Julius Caesar: Commentaries on Gallic Wars (1575) (Comte de Rochambeau’s copy?)
Francofurti ad Moenum, Georgium Corvinum, 1575. 1575. Splendidly bound in full leather with bright gilt armorial design bordered by 3 gilt rectangles with square floretts at each corner, on the front and rear boards. Handsome floral gold tooling and bright lettering along the spine. With numerous fine engravings throughout (the one on p. 14 is signed 1A). All edges are gilded. Very high quality paper, supple and white with splendid, crisp engravings throughout. This copy was purchased at a sale at The Vernon House * in Newport, RI.

There are occasional dates of 1803 and 1806 in the margins among the text of notes and comments.

The house is an architecturally distinguished colonial-era house with a construction history probably dating back to the late 17th century, with alterations made in the 18th century, possibly by architect Peter Harrison. During the American Revolutionary War this house served as the headquarters of the Comte de Rochambeau, commander of the French forces stationed in Newport 1780-83.

Andre THEVET (Angoulême 1516 ca. - Parigi 1592)
Suite completa delle carte raffiguranti i 4 continenti. Xilografie, 1575, finemente colorate a mano in epoca, impresse su carta vergata coeva, complete della linea marginale, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Le carte sono tratte dalla prima edizione de La Cosmographie universelle d'Andre Thevet, cosmographe du roy : illustree de diverses figures des choses plus remarquables veues par l'auteur, & incogneues de noz anciens & modernes, curata da Pierre l'Huilier, che precede di uno o due anni la ristampa di Guillaume Chaudiere. Nato a Angoulême intorno al 1516, Thevet divenne frate francescano e intorno al 1550 compì la sua prima spedizione, quando accompagnò il cardinale Jean de Lorraine in Italia e nel bacino del Mediterraneo. Poco dopo, Thevet pubblicò la Cosmographie de Levant, un compendio circa fatti, persone, luoghi, flora e fauna della zona visitata. L'esperienza di Thevet come un viaggiatore attirò l'attenzione di Nicolas Durand, Cavaliere di Villegagnon, che si apprestava a fondare una colonia in quello che è oggi il Brasile. Durant chiese a Thevet di accompagnarlo nella spedizione come suo confessore. Durante il viaggio, Thevet si ammalò e fu costretto a tornare in Francia dopo aver trascorso sole dieci settimane in Brasile. Tuttavia, combinando le sue osservazioni con le informazioni acquisite da altri viaggiatori, Thevet realizzò il suo Singularitez de la France Antarctique, pubblicato a Parigi nel 1557, che gli valse il riconoscimento reale e la nomina a cosmografo della corte dei Valois. Si dedicò poi alla sua opera più ambiziosa, La Cosmographie universell … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hackaert, Jan (1628 - Amsterdam - nach 1686) - zugeschrieben
Feder in Rotbraun, grau laviert, mit brauner Feder umrandet, auf Bütten mit Fragment eines Wasserzeichens: Buchstaben FDC, verso von späterer Hand bezeichnet "Stefano De La Bella". 12:17,8 cm. - Leicht stockfleckig, verso am Oberrand alte Leimspuren. Vergleichsliteratur: M.C.Plomp, The Dutch Drawings in the eyler Museum. Bd. II: Artists born between 1575 and 1630. Haarlem/Ghent/Doornspijk, 1997, Nr. 183-1889. Hackaert ist vermutlich zwischen dem 26.07. und 24.08.1654 oder zwischen dem 26.07.1654 und 28.05.1655 in Italien gewesen. Darüber hinaus sind Ansichten von Martigny und bei Lausanne in alten Katalogen nachzuweisen. Hackaerts Lehrer sind nicht bekannt. Reisen in die Schweiz und nach Italien sind durch einen Klebeband belegt, der sich im Besitz des Kunsthauses Zürich befindet. Zeichnungen mit Schweizer Motiven befinden sich in dem berühmten Atlas von Joan Blaeu (Kartograph, 1596-1673) in der Nationalbibliothek in Wien. Hackaert zeichnete holländische und italienische Landschaften, Flußtäler mit bewaldeten Hängen. Entweder sind es einfache lavierte Federskizzen nach der Natur oder durchgeführte Landschaftskompositionen, die an seine selteneren Gemälde erinnern. Charakteristisch ist die umrahmende Zeichnung des Blattwerkes und eine kleine skizzenhafte Staffage. Auch ist das Sonnenlicht, das um Stamm und Laub spielt, besonders betont.

Vignerius, Nicolaus [Vignier, Nicolas]
Basileae (Basel): Thomas Guarinus, 1575. First Edition. Small 4to. [8], 185, [23] pp. Modern vellum, red and white mottled edges. Old shelf-mark (?) "4069" in ink on title. Light foxing throughout. Overall very good. "All Things Burgundian." This early and impressive Renaissance chronicle of Burgundy covers the years 408 to 1482 and presents key events in tabular form. That copies of this work were in the libraries of Isaac Newton (cf. John Harrison, No. H1687) and Horace Walpole (Strawberry Hill sale, 26 April 1842, Case E, group lot 8) attests to its significance. According to the author, the present work was composed with the aid of hitherto unpublished manuscripts; among these must have been the Chronica Regum Visigothorum or Leges Visigothorum: in the list of authors and "monumental works" consulted is the reference to the "Vuisigothorii (sic) Chronicon manuscriptum." "The only writer who dealt with the later history in a really critical spirit was Nicolas Vignier (1530-96), whose critical sense had been stimulated by the study and practice of medicine" (A.A. Tilley, French Humanism and Montaigne, in: The Cambridge Modern History, 1905, vol. III, pp. 63-64). A Calvanist by birth, Vignier first trained as a lawyer; fleeing persecutions he was exiled to Germany where he was retained as the personal physician to several German princes. After converting to Catholicism he returned to Paris where he served as a physician and court historian to Henry III of France. This is his first book, complete in itself, which later formed part of his monumental "Bibliotheque Historial … [Click Below for Full Description]

First and third t-ps with Paulus Manutius’s woodcut portrait to recto and arms of Emperor Maximilian II with Aldine device to verso; woodcut portrait of Muret within oval cartouche, grotesque headpieces, decorated initials and tailpieces. A few ll. lightly browned, upper margins a bit trimmed, occasional slight marginal foxing, tiny worm trail to inner gutter of a few gatherings. A good copy in contemporary vellum, spine in four compartments, raised bands,  lettering in two hands, shelfmark at foot. ‘12-5’ (price?) on front pastedown, illegible later annotation to first t-p, ‘K.2. II app. Le (?) 762’ (bibliographic reference?), ‘Calle(?)’ in red crayon, ‘170’ and ‘19/46’ ms. to rear eps. Good, original copies of the first editions of Marc-Antoine Muret’s much-commended rhetorical, philosophical and poetic works. Muret (or Muretus, 1526-85) was a French humanist and talented Latin author skilled—like his classical model, Cicero—in all genres. Among his admirers were Henry II and Ronsard. After years of wondering to escape persecution for his alleged homosexuality, he spent the rest of his life in Rome under the auspices of Cardinal Ippolito d’Este. This was the first florilegium of his complete works. His 23 orations, which bear the date of their first delivery, deal with rhetoric (e.g., a defence of ‘humanae litterae’, the conjunction of ‘eloquentia’ and philosophy); commentaries on Aristotle’s ‘Ni … [Click Below for Full Description]

Euclide
appresso Domenico Frisolino (in casa di Federico Commandino), 1575. Legatura coeva in mezza pergamena, dorso con 5 nervi, titolo calligrafato al dorso e al taglio di piede, frontespizio in cornice tipografica, bellissimi capilettera animati con putti e strumenti geometrici; elegante specchio di stampa in cornice a doppio filo, i teoremi e i problemi di Euclide, illustrati con centinaia di figure geometriche incise nel testo, sono stampati in carattere tondo, mentre il commento del matematico urbinate in un bel carattere corsivo. Note di possesso in grafia coeva o di poco successiva al contropiatto anteriore e alla prima carta bianca. Federico Commandino, nato ad Urbino nel 1509, fu uno dei matematici più importanti che precedette la generazione di Galileo; a lui si devono numerose traduzioni, prima in Latino e poi in lingua volgare, degli scritti dei più importanti matematici greci, tra cui il Trattato dei corpi galleggianti di Archimede; ma fu proprio la traduzione degli Elementi di Euclide che gli valse la fama. Nel 1574 ebbe dal duca Francesco Maria II il permesso di impiantare una tipografia nella sua casa e ne diede la direzione a Domenico Frisolino, lì pubblicò la sua traduzione in italiano di Euclide, basata sulla sua precedente latina del 1572. Commandino morì proprio mentre i fogli uscivano dalla stampa, tant'è che la dedicatoria a Francesco Maria II della Rovere fu composta dal genero del Commandino Valerio Spacciuoli, il quale avvalorò l'intento umanistico e didattico dell'autore che prevedeva di rendere friubile il testo anche a coloro che "non intendevan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Good copy. In 1560, Ulloa published his first and most famous original work, the biography of Charles V, an attempt is made to place a hasty trip to Spain, either in the nuncio's entourage, Prospero Publicola, or called by the King himself, as he wanted to magnify he himself in the nuncupatoria letter of the 1564 edition of the spurious book third of the family Epistles of Guevara.

HERO (HERON) OF ALEXANDRIA. - [THE FOUNDATION OF HYDRAULICS]
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.

Casa de Hernado Diaz, Sevilla, 1575. "First edition of El Conde Lucanor: the major work of narrative prose of Spanish literature- with an unknown version,of the title page and colophon not registered in any bibliography". 8vo. Title page and the final leaf distinct from know versions (see explanations below); lacking the final leaf with the printer s device; contemporary vellum. A NOTABLE BIBLIOGRAPHIC DISCOVERY, without a doubt the most interesting and important "finding" by the Librería de Antaño in many years. THE WORK: El Conde Lucanor is, generally, a book of examples or moral stories written between 1330 and 1335 by prince don Juan Manuel. Considered at the maximum work of narrative prose of the 14th century of Spanish literature, its complete and original title in Medieval Castilian is Libro de los exemplas del Conde Lucanor et de Patron (Book of the examples of Count Lucanor and of Patron.) The book comprises five parts, the best known of which include 51 stories (some of them of one or two pages or more) taken from various sources such as Aesop and other classics, as well as traditional Arabic stories. The "History of the Dean of Santiago and the magician of Toledo" (story XI) has similarities with traditional Japanese stories, and the story of a woman named Dona Truman (story VII) - the "Story of the milk seller", but slightly varied- has been identified by Max Miller as originating in the Hindu cycle Panchatantra. The mark of the book is didactics and morals. Conde Lucanor begins with a conversation with his counsellor Patronio, proposing a problem ("A man has ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

THEVET, Andre
L'Huillier. One of only a few maps of the period created from first-hand knowledge Double-page and folding woodcut map, two closed tears crossing the image extending from the left-hand margin, lower left-hand margin renewed. From the first edition, of the fourth volume of Thevet's 'Cosmographie universelle', 1575, here in a state not recorded by Burden, corresponding to his first state, but without the title above the neatline, even though there is a wide and untrimmed top margin. Although the geography of the map is mainly derived from that of Ortelius, Thevet, in his accompanying text, claims to have based his map of America on his own first-hand observations. Thevet did in fact visit America, returning from Brazil in 1555, and the map contains some interesting information not found in other maps of the period. Thevet has added placenames along the northeastern seaboard of North America. The map's depiction of southwest south America is a sort of compromise between maps showing the bulge in Chile, first depicted by Mercator in 1569, and subsequent maps that have corrected it, first by Ortelius in 1570. "The region in Brazil where Frnce dabbled in trade and prostelytizing is appropriately called 'France Antartique', as dubbed by Villegagnon, who considered himself to be 'King of America'. Here Thevet, long anticipating most mapmakers, introduces the name 'r. Janairo'. Directly inland, Thevet's missionary role in the New World is reflected in his knowledge of various Indian peoples. Most prominent is 'Toupinambaux', the Tupinamba Indians known to us mainly through the adven … [Click Below for Full Description]

1575. Incisione in rame, mm 350x490. Fascinosa veduta panoramica della metropoli russa a volo d'uccello. La città è colta in modo molto schematico, circondata da un muro. Tratta da "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", pietra miliare del vedutismo, stampata dal 1572 al 1617 in 6 volumi pubblicati in anni differenti in varie lingue, compilata e scritta da Georg Braun, mentre Frans Hogenberg fu autore delle incisioni insieme a Simon Novellanus, generalmente da soggetti di Georg Hoefnagel. Buon esemplare con qualche restauro in alto, mentre in basso è stata rifatta parte del margine e della cornice di inquadramento.(Taschen): "Moscow is shown very schematically in a bird's-eye view; between the groups of identical houses are e few people and some very simplified large buildings. In contradiction to the text, the city is surrounded by a wall. According to legend, Moscow was founded in 1147 by Yuri Dolgoruki; by the 15th century it had become a large city with decisive wordly and religious power. The symbol of wordly power is the Kremlin, which was constructed from 1485 to 1495 and extended in several stages up to 1530. In 1472, through the marriage of Ivan III with the Byzantine Princess Sophia Palaiologos, the niece of the last East Roman emperor, Moscow also became the centre of the Russian-Orthodox church. By 1600 the fast-growing city already had more than 100,000 inhabitants. On the right people can be seen taking sleigh rides on the Moskva, which is incongruous with the vegetation, and the foreground Russian soldiers, here called "Moscovites", are depicted"Copper engraving, mm 350x … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Seine aus dem Nachlass herausgegebenen historischen Werke bieten eine auf reichem Quellenmaterial aufbauende Geschichte Nord-, Mittel- und Osteuropas in vier nebeneinander ausgearbeiteten Teilen: 1. der Saxonia (Erstdruck 1520) als Geschichte des sächsischen Stammes und des deutschen Reiches, 2. der Metropolis (1548), eine niedersächsische Kirchengeschichte, 3. der Wandalia (1519), eine Geschichte der Wandalen, der Wenden und Osteuropas, 4. der Chronica regnorum aquilonarium (1546) in ihren Teilen Dania, Suecia und Norvagia als eine Geschichte Skandinaviens, der Goten und Normannen.

by Thomas Mar[s]he, 1575. RARE, the first edition that includes the expanded and updated translations of J. Higgins. The Udall translation was first published by Berthelet in 1534. Title within woodcut border. 8vo, in early 20th century full brown crushed morocco by C. Walters with raised bands, tooled in blind and titled in gilt in two compartments and with date in gilt at the tail, boards ruled and decorated in blind, with inlaid leather doublures with borders of mitered gilt filets, silk brocade endleaves and a.e.g. A4, A-H, K-Cc8, Dd2. Lacking signature I. A handsome copy, the binding in fine condition, text firm and quite clean, title rubbed with slight loss to top woodcut border, small marginal tear to title and a repair to [2]A1, far from text. Some edges stained from the glaire used to adhere the gold leaf, old repair to M5, not affecting text. Some minor marginal wear to final leaves. VERY RARE. Only four copies located; British Library, University of Illinois, and two at the Folger. Terence was much studied during the Middle Ages and particularly in England where his influence can be easily seen in early English comedies. There was a revival of his popularity in England during the 16th century, largely due to Udall's text, and his influence is also felt in the popular comedies of manners of the Restoration. A Roman writer of comedies, Terence's works, like those of Plautus and most other Roman playwrights, were derived from the Greeks. Terence is however known for several significant departures in classical drama. He abandoned the expository prologue and instead i … [Click Below for Full Description]

1575 Agrippa OCCULT Science Alchemy Magic WITCHCRAFT Astronomy Cabala Abraxas “For whosoever do, practicing through magical vanities, exorcisms, incantations and other demoniacal works and deceits of idolatry, brag that they can do miracles, I say all these shall be destined to the torments of eternal fire.” – Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa was an early 16th-century a German writer on the occult and theology. One of his most important works was “Incertitudine” or “Declamation of Arts and Sciences” which was a satirical account of the disappointing state of science during the 1520s. It was an important contributor to skepticism and philosophers such as Montaigne, Descartes, and Goethe. According to Jones, this book is “one of the great classics of skeptical literature.” This 1575 printing of “Incertitudine” covers a wide variety of occult topics including alchemy, astronomy, theurgy, magic rituals, summoning gods, discovering one’s psyche, mysticism and the cabala, Abraxas stones and charms, general magic and natural magic, dreams and dream interpreting, dangers of witchcraft, phantasms and miracles, and much more! Agrippa’s aim with this work was “to propose a cultural alternative, delineating a different philosophical approach, capable of forming a new intellectual élite, who would be seriously interested in the moral and religious progress of human community.” (SEP) Item number: #3409 Price: $2500 AGRIPPA, Heinrich Cornelius Henrici Cornelii Agrippae ab Nettesheym, De incertitydine et vanitate scientiarum declamatio inuectiua, expostrema authoris re … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAUROLICO, Francesco.
Venice: Franciscum Franciscium Senensem, 1575. First edition. First and only edition (see Rara Aritmetica) of the first clear statement of the principle of mathematical induction. "Francesco Maurolico is generally recognized to have been one of the foremost mathematicians of the sixteenth century" (Rosen); Cajori has called him 'the greatest geometer of the sixteenth century'. Only a few of his many works were printed, the present volume containing the majority of his published scientific writings in eight treatises, each published here for the first time: De sphaera liber unus (in which he criticized Copernicus); Computus Ecclesiasticus in summam collectus; Tractatus instrumentorum astronomicorum; Tractatus de lineis horariis; Euclidis propositiones elementorum; Musicae traditione; De lineis horariis; and Arithmeticorum. "The greatest number of Maurolico's mathematical writings are gathered in the Opuscula mathematica; indeed, the second volume of that work, Arithmeticorum libri duo, is wholly devoted to that subject 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. L. E. Dickson has remarked upon Maurolico's argument that every perfect number is hexagonal, and therefore traingular, while Baldassarre Boncompagni noted his proof of a peculiarity of the succession of odd numbers... "Among the topics related to mathematics in the Opuscula are chronology (the treatise 'Com … [Click Below for Full Description]

Apian, Peter [Apianus, Petrus]; Frisius, Gemma
An important and handsome edition, magnificently bound for a wealthy patron, of the standard work on cosmography -a combination of geography and astronomy- of the 16th century; first printed in 1524, Apian´s work saw close to 40 editions in the first 100 years of its appearance. The work includes parts on geography, cartography, navigation, and instrument making. The illustration is composed of a large vignette to title portraying the globe, over 100 woodcuts in text, and 4volvelles (fol. 8 verso, 11 recto, 28 recto et 49 recto, 65 et 189) Apian (1495 - 1552), born Peter Bienewitz to a shoemaker was a remarkable German humanist, mathematician, astronomer and cartographer. The work was edited by Gemma Frisius (1508 - 1555), physician, mathematician, and instrument marker, famous for his globes and advanced in surveying and navigation. It is due to Frisius that we owe the Libellus de locorum, which proposed the principle of triangulation as a means to locate places and map areas. Provenance: M. Grobliez (manuscript ownership inscription on front pastedown); another inscription on last leaf "Kopernikorda ratia iez rakazana"; purchased from Rossignol in 1935 by Maurice Burrus, his printed ex-libris on front pastedown. Alden & Landis 574/2. Sabin 1738-1756 (for different editions).
