Goldfuß, Georg August (Verfasser, 1782-1848), Aimé Henry (Zeichner und Stecher 1801-1875)
Gr.-Folio (48 x 60 cm). Altkolorierte, teils gehöhte Lithographie (Auge) auf Whatman-Papier. Unbeschnittenes Blatt. Einwandfreies Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe. - Nissen, ZBI 1617. - Nicht bei Zimmer oder Schlenker. Der Naturhistorische Atlas von Goldfuß' ist eines der seltensten Werke der deutschsprachigen Naturgeschichte, was sowohl auf den langen Erscheinungszeitraum zurückzuführen ist, als auch auf den von Goldfuß explizit empfohlenen Gebrauch der Illustrationen als separate Anschauungstafeln für den Naturhistorischen Unterricht (siehe G.s Ankündigung des Werkes in ISIS, Jg. 1824). Komplette Exemplare sind aus diesem Grund kaum auffindbar und verlagsseitig gebundene Exemplare nicht bekannt. Die Illustrationen stammen von Aimé Henry. Aimé gründete zusammen mit Max Cohen 1828 in Bonn die Lithographische Anstalt, die in den Folgejahren für zahlreiche Höhepunkte lithographischer Illustrationskunst in Deutschland verantwortlich zeichnete.

[NAPIER'S BONES]
No Binding. Fine. Set is comprised of decorated boxwood case with sliding lid (including thumb groove), 10 boxwood multiplying rods and one wider rod for calculating squares and cubes, and boxwood tabulat for arranging rods. Total dimensions 9.2 x 6.8 cm. Set is complete and integral. Small hairline crack to corner of case, otherwise a very fine set. Very rare complete set of Napier's Bones in boxwood, the first modern calculating instrument, designed to facilitate multiplication and division of large numbers and first described in Napier's Rabdologie (Edinburgh 1617). Complete sets from as early as the 17th century are rare; the present set is in exceptionally fine condition, and as such represents a rare survival from the first century of their use. As was customary, the present set was designed in boxwood to fit comfortably into the pocket of the would-be mathematician. Napier's ingenious instrument consists of a series of 10 small 'bones,' each side of which presents a multiplication column for a single integer. Diagonal lines between the 'tens' and the 'units' of each number show how to carry the second digit, allowing one to multiply any number up to ten digits long (provided it contains a single integer no more than four times). To obtain the product of 9 x 14, for instance, one places rods 1 and 4 on the tabulat, and reads the result from the 9th row of the tabulat's fixed multiplier rod: 0/9 and 3/6. The solution emerges from right to left: 6 and 9+3, or 126. The instrument's wider block also allows users to quickly extra … [Click Below for Full Description]

LANGREN, Arnold Floris van
Brussels, 1617. Hardcover. Very Good. French manuscript written in brown ink in a French cursive hand, pages ruled in red, 21 lines per page. 15.3 cm x 9.5 cm, (58) pp. Bound in contemporary limp vellum with remains of green silk ties. A presentation copy with the dedicatee's name left blank. Clean and fresh, an excellent copy.Very rare manuscript user's manual for the famous terrestrial and celestial globes by the van Langren cartographic dynasty, notable as the first to employ the highly accurate star observations of the "tresfameux" Tycho Brahe - whose contribution is duly acknowledged (fol. 9v). Well into the age of print, these manuals were handwritten rather than printed because the globes which they accompanied were luxury articles and relatively few were produced, notwithstanding their importance. The celestial globes of Van Langren (1594), and later Blaeu, soon rendered Mercator's great globes obsolete. As early as 1590, the young Arnold van Langren was sent to Hven to take advantage of what was at the time the most advanced celestial observatory in Europe. "When Arnold came to Uraniborg, Tycho's plan to publish his stellar positions was already formulated, but the observations and calculations that resulted in the catalogue of 777 stars had not been completed. While Tycho could have provided Arnold van Langren with the newly calculated positions of some stars, perhaps even interim locations for most of them, it seems quite likely that he would have advised the Dutchman to await the completion of this work before beginning a globus Tychonicus. He may even have … [Click Below for Full Description]

After taking the habit of Dominicain in his hometown in 1600, he acquired, a reputation for eloquence and zeal in his preaching.

Overall a clean, unsophisticated copy. - Wheeler Gift 55; Honeyman 2864; Norman 1963; DSB XII, 500 - FIRST EDITION OF SNEL'S FUNDAMENTAL WORK IN THE SCIENCE OF GEODESY AND OF GREAT IMPORT IN THE HISTORY OF NAVIGATION. In this work Snel outlines the principles of a new method for determining the length of the arc of the meridian by triangulation. "In 1615 he became deeply involved in the determination of the length of the meridian, selecting for this work the method of triangulation, first proposed by Gemma Frisius in 1533 and also used by Tycho. Snel developed it to such an extent that he may rightfully be called the father of triangulation. Starting with his house... he used the spires of town churches as points of reference. Thus, through a net of triangles, he computed the distance from Alkmaar to Bergen-op-Zoom (around 130 kilometers). The two towns lie on approximately the same meridian. Snel used the distance from Leiden to Zoeterwoude (about 5 kilometers) as a baseline. His instruments were made by Blaeu" (DSB). From the mean of these two measurements Snel calculated the length of a degree to be 352,347 feet, a more … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOEHNEYSS, Georg Engelhard von
Title within fine & decorative woodcut border & 16 double-page woodcut plates (each within an elaborate woodcut border). Printed tables in the text. 11 p.l., 343 pp. Folio, cont. vellum over boards (upper cover with two small defects, some browning as is usual due to the quality of the paper), ties gone. Zellerfeld: [Privately Printed for the Author], 1617. First edition and a fine copy of this classic of mining and assaying. Printed on the author's private press, this the third of the great early illustrated treatises on the subjects, following Agricola and Ercker. Löhneyss (1552-1625?), was inspector general of the mines of Zellerfeld, Clausthal, and Andreasberg. After having a fight with a publisher, Löhneyss established his own private printing press; this is the first and only book printed at Zellerfeld. He designed the plates, woodcuts, and initials, employing Moses Thym as engraver of the cuts. His books are considered masterpieces of typography; most copies, however, were destroyed during the Thirty Years War. "One of the artistically most precious, but also one of the rarest books on mining is the first edition of Georg Engelhard Löhneyss, Report on Mines...The book was printed in the author's own printing shop at Zellerfeld in the Harz Mountains and appeared first in 1617...The splendid woodcut plates of the Zellerfeld editions were, according to Nagler, designed by Moses Thym."-W.

Luteriae Parisiorum (Paris) : Ex officina Nivelliana, sumptibus S. Cramoisy, 1617 Folio. Contemp., richly blindtooled pigskin over wood, raised bands, remains of clasps. Engraved portrait of Alcuin facing titlepage, printed on verso of halftitle. Titlepage in red/black with large woodcut device. (46),1896 coloumns (=948 pp.),(24) pp. Occasionally a faint dampstain to lower margins, mostly to Index-leaves. From the library of the Benedictine Monastery "Benediktbeuern" south of Munich. On titlepage in old hand "Monasterij Benedictoburanj." and on htitle "Iste Liber est Monasterij Benechten..." ? ¶ The scarce first edition of Alcuin's "Opera".Alcuin is the most prominent figure of the Carolingian Renaissance, in which three main periods have been distinguished: in the first of these, up to the arrival of Alcuin at the court, the Italians occupy a central place; in the second, Alcuin and the Anglo-Saxons are dominant; in the third (from 804), the influence of Theodulf, the Visigoth is preponderant.We owe to him, too, manuals used in his educational work - a grammar and works on rhetoric and dialectics. They are written in the form of dialogues and in two of them the interlocutors are Charlemagne and Alcuin. He wrote several theological treatises: a De fide Trinitatis, commentaries on the Bible, etc.Alcuin transmitted to the Franks the knowledge of Latin culture which had existed in Ango-Saxon England. A number of his works still exist. His letters and his poetry are equally interesting. Besides some graceful epistles in the style of Venantius Fortunatus, he wrote some long poe … [Click Below for Full Description]
