        Selva rinovata di varia lettione di Pietro Messia

      Venice: Ambrosio & Bartolomeo Dei, 1616. 5 volumes in one. Quarto (23 cm); [40], 357, [17], 214, [12],186, [2 blank], [24], 277, [8], 112 pages. Each of the five parts with separate title page, with woodcut printer's device. Frequent woodcut illustrations, portraits, emblems, diagrams and ornaments in text. Bound in ineteenth-century half calf over marbled boards, expertly rebacked, with new leather label. Gilt edges. Few blemishes. Edges trimmed close, with some slight loss at lower edge of title page. References: Laurenti, Spanish Golden Age, 276. A 17th-century Italian translation of the Spanish 16th-century "forest of many stories" by Pedro Mexia. The book is a Spanish Renaissance entry into the genre named "Silvae" by Statius, but this text falls more into the tradition of Xenophon's Symposium, Athenaeus, Macrobius, and Aulus Gellius, that is, expansive, shapeless, episodic, with masses of detail and a stupefying variety of topics and narratives. It was incredibly popular in the 16th and 17th centuries, reprinted in something like 106 editions in every European language. It was a rich treasure chest for later Renaissance authors, such as Miguel Cervantes (whose Quixote is also a forest of many tales, several of them lifted from Mexia) and Christopher Marlowe (who pulled his Tamburlaine from its pages). It is now thoroughly obscure.

        Geometriae Practicae Novae.Nuremberg: Simon Halbmayer, 1627.

      First complete edition and the first edition of the fourth part (the first part was published in 1616, the first three parts together in 1618). The first book is a treatise on general mathematics and the principles of geometry. The second deals entirely with techniques of surveying. The third part describes a surveying instrument (the 'mensula praetoriana') invented by the scientific instrument maker Johann Praetorius (Richter) and its application. The fourth part is in fact a German translation of Curzio Casati's 'Geometricum problema' (1602). He shows himself to be particularly well acquainted with the contemporary Italian mathematical literature, giving in particular a resumé of some of the work of Pietro Antonio Cataldi: "The use of limited continued fractions in the expression of a relationship between large numbers is found in the 'Geometria practica' of Daniel Schweneter (1627), published soon after Cataldi's death." (DSB, III, p.128). Cantor, Vorlesungen II, p.666-70; Zeitlinger/Sotheran, 2nd suppl, 2421; Poggendorff II 878.. Four parts in one volume. 4to: 200 x 154 mm. Contemporary vellum.
