        HAKLUYTUS POSTUMUS OR PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES. CONTAYNING A HISTORY OF THE WORLD, IN SEA VOYAGES & LANDE-TRAUELLS, BY ENGLISHMEN & OTHERS...IN FIVE BOOKS

      London: William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1625-1626.. Five volumes. Folio. Crushed blue morocco, gilt, by W. Pratt, covers with central gilt arabesques, spines lettered in gilt in six compartments, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. A fine copy. The second great collection of English voyages, expanding upon and greatly adding to the work of Hakluyt, whose manuscripts Purchas took over after Hakluyt's death. Purchas collects over twelve hundred separate narratives of explorations in every part of the world. Many of the accounts relate to the New World, especially Virginia, and one of the engraved maps is Smith's famous "Map of Virginia." Besides the Smith Virginia map, Purchas also includes two other maps of the greatest importance for North American cartography. The first of these is the "Briggs" map of North America, generally considered the first map to show California as an island. The Briggs map is also the first to note New Mexico by that name, and the first to name the Hudson River and Hudson Bay. The other notable American map is William Alexander's depiction of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts north to Newfoundland. As Burden notes, this is the first map to record many place names and is a "map of great importance." Purchas began work on his massive collection in 1611, and published various editions of a short collection, with the similar title of "Purchas His Pilgrimage," over the next ten years. That publication, however, was merely a precursor to the present work, an entirely different book and arguably the greatest collection of travels and voyages ever published. The first two volumes are mainly devoted to travels in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The third volume largely treats northern explorations and America. The fourth volume is almost entirely devoted to America. The fifth volume, PILGRIMAGE, is a supplement to all of the preceding parts, and properly completes a set of Purchas' ...PILGRIMES.... A foundation work for any collection of travels and voyages. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 625/173. SABIN 66682-6. CHURCH 401A. HUTH SALE 6057. BAER MARYLAND 8. HILL 1403. STREETER SALE 36. STC 20509.

        [Decamerone, in English.] The Modell of Wit, Mirth, Eloquence, and Conversation

      [London:] Printed by Isaac Jaggard,, 1625. Framed in Ten Dayes, of an hundred curious Pieces, by seven honourable ladies, and three noble gentlemen. Preserved to Posterity by the renowned John Boccacio, the first refiner of Italian prose: and now translated into English. 2 volumes bound in one, folio (274 × 170 mm), first volume gathered in sixes, second volume in fours. Contemporary dark calf, rebacked with original gilt spine laid down, red morocco label sometime added in second compartment, corners skilfully restored. Housed in a dark brown flat back cloth solander box. Titles within woodcut borders, the border to volume II composed of 6 woodcut medallions repeated as vignettes throughout both volumes, decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials, typographic head- and tailpieces. Small ink ownership inscription of the English poet Martyn Skinner (1906-1993), dated 1935, to front free endpaper. Some wear and cracklure to the binding, first title just shaved at fore-edge margin and with small hole at centre not affecting text, remains of old ink (faded) over imprint, second title just shaved at head and fore-margin, a few trivial marks internally, a few small paper restorations to blank lower outer corners, overall a very good copy. The Decameron in English: second edition in English of volume I; first edition of volume II, as often. The translation is attributed on stylistic grounds to John Florio. Boccaccio's Decamerone, composed between 1348 and 1351, a collection of one hundred novelle was hugely influential in England, its canonical status reinforced by the imitations of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dryden, Keats, and Tennyson, yet Boccaccio's masterpiece nevertheless came to the English language late, significantly later than the first translations into French, Spanish, Catalan, and German. Florio apparently worked with both the Salviati (1582) edition of the Decameron and Antoine Le Maçon's (1545) French version to hand. He shows some uneasiness in presenting the Italian novelle to an English readership and amending a Catholic author for a Protestant audience. Moral applications are interjected between the brief summaries of the tales and the novelle themselves, and the names of some characters are anglicized or given in French forms. The translation is dedicated to Sir Philip Herbert, the future fourth Earl of Pembroke, whose father had been tutored by Florio. The first volume was first published in 1620. The second volume has a separate title, The Decameron … The last Five Dayes, also dated 1620, but the 1625 title page of the first volume is specifically worded as a general title for the whole work, implying that Jaggard intended this edition to be issued thus, two volumes in one. Isaac Jaggard was successor to his father William, best known as the printer, in 1623, of the first folio of Shakespeare's plays, which recent scholars have suggested was edited by John Florio.

        Memoires du sieur Richer ambassadeur pour les roys tres-chrestiens Francois premier & Henry second en Suede & Dannemarch. [=headline].

      1625 - Troyes, 1625. 8:o. 22 leaves. Elegant contemporary varnished tan calf with raised bands, somewhat worn, spine richly gilt and with crimson and green morocco labels, sides with gilt border, gilt cover edges and inner dentelles. Marbled edges. Major dampstain throughout, closely cut, at places into signatures and catchwords. With the bookstamp of Fredrik Vult von Steijern.Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 8204: "This extremely rare little book". The Royal Library's copy is bound last in a volume beginning with "Melanges historiques", printed 1619 in Troyes. The latter work seems to have been enlarged with several separate appendixes in the form of travel books like Richer's, whose text was printed two years after the previous appendix. These appendixes all have separate signatures and paginations. In Richer's "Memoires" is found, on leaf 3 verso-9 recto, "Memoires dressé par le sieur Richer sur la conference qu'il eut par commandement du roy avec le secretaire du roy du Suede". The text concerns a visit in Chastellerault 1541 in 1541 by the Swedish ambassador Frantz Trebou, sent there by "Gostuë roy de Shuede & des goths". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Opera physica anatomica: de formato foetu, de venarum ostiolis, de formatione ovi et pulli, de locutione et eius instrumentis, de brutorum loquela.

      Roberti Meglietti, Padua 1625 - 5 parts in one volume. Folio (403 x 273 mm). General title with engraved printer¿s device, [4], 150, [2] pp, 34 plates (including unnumbered plate on verso of plate XI, 11 double page); 23 [1] pp., 8 plates (1 double page); 68, [2] pp., 7 plates (including 4 unnumbered bound at the end); 27, [5] pp., 1 plate; 27, [3] pp. In total fifty engraved copper plates of which twelve are double-page. Contemporary sprincled calf, spine with 5 raised bands gilt in compartments (binding rubbed, corners and extremities worn, joints slighty cracked), marbled pastedowns. Internally fresh, with only very minor spotting, marginal finger soiling and browning, most plates with the edges folded in, plate 8 somewhat frayed at fore-margin. Provenance: Presentation copy from the anatomist and neurologist Sir Charles Bell (1774-1842) with his inscription on first flyleaf: "George J. Bell from his uncle Sir Charles Bell." Sir Charles Bell's brother was George Joseph Bell (1770-1843), a distinguished Scottish advocate; George J. Bell was one of his sons. Presentation inscriptions by Charles Bell, possibly the most distinguished anatomist and physiologist of his time, are of considerable rarity. An outstanding association copy of one of the greatest works in the history of anatomy. ---- NLM/Krivatsy 3804/3831 ; Norman 750 ; Wellcome I, 2126 ; Waller 2886 ; Hirsch-H. II, 460 ff. ; Grolier Medicine 27b ; Franklin, « Valves in veins : An historical survey, » Proc. Roy. Soc. Medicine 21 (1927), pp.1-33 - Important first collected edition, very rare. Fabrici¿s best known and most important medical work is his classic monograph on the venous valves, De venarum ostiolis, firt published in Padua in 1603 and reissued with four other works in 1625 under the general title Opera anatomica and Opera physica anatomica, respectively. This tract, published originally as an unbound folio pamphlet consisting of 23 pages of text and 8 engr. Plates, has been described as one of the rarest and most beautiful works in the history of anatomical illustrations. Among the plates is the well-known depiction of the surface anatomy of the veins of the forearm that William Harvey adapted to illustrate his De motu cordis. Although Fabrici did not fully appreciate the functional significance of the venous valves, hist work was a crucial precursor of Harvey¿s discovery. As Harvey told the British physicist and chemist Robert Boyle, i twas his recognition of the significance of Fabrici¿s observations and his own realization of the function of the venous valves that led him to conceptualize the circulation of the blood (Grolier, Medicine, p.104). - Fabricius's De Venarum Ostiolis (On the Valves of the Veins) was the first detailed demonstration of the existence of venous valves, and it contains the first extended illustrations of them. It was the immediately significant precursor of the De Motu Cordis of William Harvey, who studied for two years at Padua where Fabricius was Professor of Anatomy; and Harvey used the great double-plate of the veins of the arm in his own book 25 years later. Apart from his importance in relation to Harvey, Fabricius has in recent years been increasingly recognized as a man of mark in his own right; and in 1933 a translation, with reduced-size facsimile, was made of the De Venarum Ostiolis by K. J. Franklin (History of Science Society, through Charles C Thomas, Springfield, Illinois). The most striking feature of the splendidly produced editio princeps is the series of full-page plates. As Franklin says: "The sumptuously printed folios which Fabricius published in 1603-1604 were issued separately, and unbound. Though they escaped Choulant's notice, they are among the rarest and most beautiful works in the history of anatomical illustration. The plates are magnificent; in fact nothing on their scale had been seen since the days of Vesalius." In addition to its significance in the history of anatomy, the De Venarum Ostiolis is a book of the hi [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        L'Histoire du Vieux et du Nouveau Testament, avec des Explications edifiantes, tirees des Saints Peres

      16mo. Full calf, compartments, gilt spine decoration and gilt title ("Sainte Bible") on crimson spine label. (20pp), 583pp. Sewn-in silk page marker. Tables, numerous small decorative woodcuts. Marbled endpapers. Very good overall. Bit of leather damage at lower right tip of front board, with small chips at head and tail of spine; age toning to opening and closing preliminary leaves; contemporary ownership signature on inner flyleaf; small stain at bottom of some pages, though most are bright, clean and lovely. Tight, clean, attractive early printing of the noted "Bible de Royaumont" or "Sainte Bible" in an early (circa late 18th century) binding. De Royaupont (Nicolas Fontaine,1625-1709) was companion to the reknowned French theologian, priest of Port-Royal and humanist Lemaistre de Sacy (1613-84) during his captivity at the Bastille (1666-68), where he completed his famed translation of the Old Testament (known as the "Bible de Sacy" or "Bible de Port-Royal") -- supposedly with much help from Fontaine -- which became the most popular French version of the Bible in the 18th century. Fontaine's "History of the Old and New Testaments, with Edifying Explanations, from the Holy Fathers" was first published in Paris in 1670. Pierre La Petit published it again in 1681, and in 1687 Denys Thierry obtained the rights to it. Perhaps most interesting about this copy is that six leaves (pp. 25-26, pp. 29-36 and pp. 39-40) were removed at some point in the 18th century and replaced with beautifully handwritten replacements (including header and blank rule), clearly of 18th century vintage. It's been suggested these leaves were removed by a censor, but this is not definitive and clearly it would take a line-by-line comparison of these handwritten leaves against another 1692 copy to determine if any text has been altered or deleted. It's an intriguing notion, though, for the Jansenism reform movement within the Roman Catholic church, of which this volume was a part, was often heated and often violent. Censorship was not outside the realm of possibility.

        Tabula processum seu ordinem ultimi divini & criminalis judicii exhibens ... additurque Cantio germanica... [Part 2:] Ein geistlich Lied von dem Process des Jüngsten Gerichts

      Cleves:: Gerhard Verstegen,, 1625 (engraved title: Cleves: so. Cleves: Gerhard Verstegen, 1625 (engraved title: Cleves: sold by Jacob van Biese, 1629) 4to 4to (177 x 139 mm). [4], 82; [10] pp. Added engraved title dated 1629, letterpress title on mounted roundel at center, 11 etched and engraved plates, folding letterpress table. Part 2, in German, in gothic types, separately titled, but part of same quire sequence as part 1. Woodcut tailpieces, rule page-borders. Some foxing, severe browning to folding table and to a few text leaves, the table with clean fold tear, repair to title slightly affecting the letterpress roundel, last quire on a guard. Late 18th- or early 19th-century half parchment and marbled paper boards, manuscript title on spine (covers rubbed). ***First edition, second issue, of a curious analytical treatise on the Apocalypse and Last Judgment, illustrated with superb engravings by an unknown artist, including an allegorical illustration of America. The author was a Palatine councillor and Protestant theologian from Emmerich (across the Rhine from Cleves), who applied a legalistic mind to matters of religion. In his dedication to Georg Wilhelm, Elector of Brandenburg, he explains that he is setting out to analyze the Final Judgment, without which life has no meaning. The large typographical table is the basis for the rest of the book; it charts the how, when and where of Judgment Day: its apparatus (the means by which God has made its coming known, and how it will arrive); its location (the entire world), the criteria and mechanism of Judgment (including who will go to the right and who to the left); and its execution and ultimate end: a new world. Every line in the table is letter-keyed to the text and illustrations. Part 2 consists of a shorter, poetic version of the treatise, written in German for those who could not read Latin (presumably women); it is dedicated to the Elector?s wife Elisabeth-Charlotte von der Pfalz, and was to be sung to the tunes of two church psalms (Psalms 100 and 134).The exceptional illustrations were the work of an experienced engraver, who created a striking range of tones with light areas of etching contrasting with darker hatched engraved areas. The first engraving shows the four continents in four roundels on a Renaissance arabesque ground; America is represented by a peaceful encounter between Native Americans and Europeans. The ten other engravings appear to constitute an original interpretation of the Apocalypse, showing the ruin of Monarchy (depicted in an allegorical palace scene of the 7 electors throwing down their crowns and swords), destruction of Rome, rain of comets, terrifying resurrection of the dead (shown falling from the sky, swimming out of the sea, and climbing out of the earth), aerial ascendance of the Saved and grim entry into Hell of the Damned, and the final Conflagration.The first edition of this surprisingly exciting book appeared in 1625. This reissue of the same sheets has a new engraved title; VD-17 suggests that the bookseller Jacob van Biese acquired Verstegen?s stock after the latter ceased printing in 1628. In some copies (e.g., the Houghton and Beinecke Library copies), Part 2, the Geistlich Lied, was revised, a cancel quire *6 replacing fols. L2-4 and quire M2. Gerhard Verstegen was the first printer in Cleves (Kleve in German, Kleef in Dutch), a town on the Lower Rhine, and this was one of the first works from his press, preceded only by two editions in 1622 of a polemical anti-Catholic pamphlet.

      Brussels: , 1625. An invaluable sourcebook for the history of New Mexico. 1625. Brussels. Juan de Meerbeque. In folio (305 mm x 194 mm). 4 ff. + 654 + 3 ff. Contemporary limp vellum, front board lightened and a little stained, bookplate of William Mayer on front pasteboard, ties missing, upper joint cracked, spine lettered in ink. Title with seal erased, light browning to text as often, final leaf with mainly marginal loss of paper causing text loss repaired in manuscript facsimile, ff. 1 re-margined; overall entirely genuine, unrestored copy of a great rarity, of wide margins and generally fresh and clean.Second edition. The first edition was published in Madrid in 1596, it is rarely found, and a third edition appeared in 1634 under a new title "Varia historia de la Nueva España y Florida". It is main source of information on the Dominican?s work in New Mexico from 1526 to 1592, and the basis for future works on the region. It is rich in new information and is namely drawn out of missionaries experiences working in Mexico, namely amongst Indians, with notes on their activities, beliefs and mysticism, their conversion to Catholicism; thus, it?s contents are not to be found in previous relations. Amongst others, the lives of Domingo de Betanzos (founder of the Province and its first Provincial), Domingo de la Cruz, Domingo de Santa Maria, Julian Garces (first Bishop of Tlaxcala), Cristobal de la Cruz, Pedro de Pravia, and Luis Cancer (missionary in Mexico and Florida, where he was martyred by natives). "An invaluable work for the history of the earliest missions to the New World. All editions of this important work are of extreme rarity. It contains some of the most valuable materials in existence for the history of the Spanish Conquest and settlements in America; as well as of the manners, language, and religions of the aborigines." (Maggs).Davila Padilla (1562 ? 1604) was Mexican born, studied at the University of Mexico, where he achieved a degree of Master of Arts when 16 before going into the Dominican Order. He is one of the foremost chroniclers of Mexico and one of the first to be born, raised and educated there. During a visit to Spain Davila met Philip II, who appointed him Chronicler of the Indies. He was also an Inquisitor in Mexico.Medina, Hispano-Americana, 784. Palau, 68981. Sabin, 18780. European Americana, 1625/62.

Die deutsche Übertragung von Harsdörffer (1646) beruht nicht auf dem spanischen Original, sondern auf dieser lateinischen Fassung von Barth, die als congenial gilt: "Barths translation is a masterpiece, elegant and precise" (Faber du Faur). Die ungewöhnlich schönen und detailreichen Kupfer zeigen Landschaften oder Gesellschaften in einem Park. Barth (1587-1658), Studiengenosse von Martin Opitz in Heidelberg, gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Späthumanisten. In Wittenberg Schüler Friedrich Taubmanns gehörte später Johann Michael Dilherr zu seinen Leipziger Schülern. Sein beträchtliches Vermögen erlaubte es Barth, Zeit seines Lebens ohne feste Anstellung seinen humanistisch-philologischen Neigungen nachzugehen. Während seines mehrjährigen Aufenthaltes in Halle gehörte er zum angesehenen Patriziat der Salzherren. - Umfangreiche zeitgenössische Anstreichungen und Annotationen.

Wherein hee makes apparant by good and evident reasons, infallible arguments, most true and certaine histories, and notable examples, the right way, and true meanes to resist the violence of the Spanish King, to breake the course of his designes, to beate downe his pride, and to ruinate his puissance.

        Hanawischen Erdbalsams, Petrolei oder weichen Agsteins Beschreibung: Welcher bey dess Hochwolgebornen Grafen und Herren, Johan Reinhardten Grafen zu Hanaw und Zweybrücken...

      1625. Strassburg, Rihel, 1625. Small 8vo (160 x 950mm). pp. (38). Modern speckled brown boards. One of the earliest works descibing the discovery of oil. Johann Volck was a student of Leonard Thurneisser who was one of the first followers of Paracelsus. Little is known about Volck apart from the fact that he had a distilling plant at Lampertloch. The English translation of the German title is as follows: Description of the Hanau earth balsam, petroleum and soft agate stone, which are found in the village named Lampertloch, belonging to the most nobly born count Johan Reinhard, Count of Hanau and Zweibrücken etc., etc., together with its qualities, power and efficacy, which various authors ascribe to it.... The work describes the petroleum basins of the Alsace of which the town Hagenau is of major importance. "The interesting aspects of his pamphlet, however, resides in the fact that in the last four pages he expatiates upon technical uses of petroleum which... were not generally accepted until very much later... Comparing Volck's statement with those of a famous technologist such as Agricola... Volck's pamphlet stands out by virtue of acumen of its auhtor, who obviously personally looked for the possible practical uses of crude oil and the distillate therefrom in directions which had not occured to his contemporaries" (Forbes, Studies in early petroleum history pp. 74-75). A very rare item. The Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog only mentions six copies in German libraries..

        RELACION CIERTA Y VERDADERA DE LA FELIZ VITORIA Y PROSPEROS SUCESSOS QUE EN LA INDIA ORIENTAL HAN CONSEGUIDO LOS PORTUGUESES, CONTRA ARMADAS MUY PODEROSAS DE OLANDO, Y PERSIA, ESTE AÑO DE 1624. LA FECHA EN LA CIUDAD DE GOA, CABEÇA DE AQUEL REYNO, A 27. DE MARÇO, DEL DICHO AÑO, Y VINO EN LA NAO SANTO TOMÊ

      Madrid: Bernardino de Guzman, 1625.. Madrid: Bernardino de Guzman, 1625.. [4]pp. In Spanish. Decorative woodcut initial on first page. Small folio. Dbd. Light contemporary annotations in margins of each page. Early folds. Loss, repaired in silk, to gutter and outer margins and along one fold, affecting a few characters of text on p.[4]. Overall very good. Rare Spanish newsletter reporting on recent victories by the Portuguese against the Dutch, the Persians, and others throughout Asia in 1624. The early 17th century saw the Dutch begin to present a serious threat to Portuguese power and commerce in the East, and by the mid-1620s the Portuguese were beleaguered by constant attacks by the Dutch navy and its various Asian allies. The present Spanish newsletter celebrates one of the last great series of Dutch defeats by the Portuguese, who are lauded here by their Iberian partners as worldwide defenders of the Catholic faith holding their ground against overwhelming odds. Within a few years the Dutch would clearly gain the upper hand in Asia, both militarily and commercially, and by 1663 would control much of the Malabar Coast, Ceylon, Indonesia, Malacca, and European trade with Japan, leaving Portugal only with bases at Macao, East Timor, and Portuguese India. The newsletter discusses several naval battles off the coast of Persia, down the Malabar Coast to Ceylon, to Malacca, China, and Macao. A significant portion of the pamphlet describes the heavy Portuguese losses sustained by repeated attacks on Macao by the Dutch, who by this time had established a base in the Pescadores Islands. In the last paragraph attention is turned to the activities of the Jesuits in Ethiopia (described here as the "Realm of Prester John") and the recent conversion of Ethiopian King Suseynos to Roman Catholicism. Palau records four printings of the text, assigning priority to the present document and locating one copy at the National Library in Madrid. Palau also notes that a copy of this printing was sold by Maggs Bros. for £5 5s in 1927 and by Melchor García for 35 pesetas in 1934. OCLC locates four copies, at the Bavarian State Library in Germany, the University of Amsterdam, the Newberry Library, and the University of Chicago. PALAU 257729.

        Euclidis elementa practica, oder Außzug aller Problematum und Handarbeiten auß den 15 Büchern Euclidis. Allen und jeden, deß uhralten Geometrischen nutzlichen gebrauchs, deß Circkels Liebhabern zu gut in Teutsche Sprach dargegeben, Durch M. Luc. Brunn [...].

      Nürnberg, Simon Halbmayer, [1625].. (8), 92 SS. Mit einer gest. breiten figuralen und architektonischen Titelbordüre sowie 125, meist schematischen Holzschnitten und einigen Holzschnittvignetten im Text. Pergamentband unter Verwendung eines zeitgen. Pergamentmanuskripts in rot und schwarz mit einigen Federwerksinitialen in Rot und Blau, Schließbänder. 4to.. Erste deutsche Ausgabe aller 15 Bücher der "Elemente". Die berühmte Basler Ausgabe von 1562 bringt bekanntlich nur "Die sechs ersten Bücher des Euklidis", ein Umstand, auf den auch im Vorwort des vorliegenden Werkes Bezug genommen wird: "Weiln ich denn meines theils nicht wußte mich zuentsinnen, daß jemals was in deutscher Sprach auß den letzern Bühern Euclidis ans Liecht bracht worden were, Als habe ich alle problemata durch den gantzen Euclidem collagiret, ergäntze und zusammen gezogen, wollen in offentlichen Truck kommen lassen [...]". Freilich handelt es sich bei dieser vom Mathematiker Lukas Brunn besorgten Ausgabe eher um eine Auswahl und Kompilation aus den 15 Büchern des Euklid als um eine wortgetreue Übersetzung aus dem griechischen Urtext. Hoffmann (II, 49) bemerkt denn auch bei Kommentierung eines 1653 in Jena unter dem Titel "Teutscher Euclides" erschienenen Werks, daß es sich hierbei nicht um eine Übersetzung im eigentlichen Sinn handelt. Gleichwohl führt er ebendieses Werk von 1653 als erste und bis 1714 auch einzige vollständige deutsche Ausgabe; unsere 28 Jahre früher erschienene Ausgabe war Hoffmann offenbar unbekannt, während Schweiger dieselbe bereits als selbständige Übersetzung anführt. - "Die 'Elemente' sind eine Sammlung des ganzen älteren mathematischen Wissens der Griechen seit Pythagoras, so in ein zusammenhängendes System gebracht, daß jeder Lehrsatz logisch aus dem vorangegangenen folgt; in dieser Einfachheit liegt das Geheimnis seines Erfolges. Das Werk ist in dreizehn Bücher gegliedert: 1-4 behandeln die Planimetrie; 5 und 6 die auf Eudoxos zurückgehende Proportionslehre und ihre Anwendung; 7-9 die Eigenschaften der Zahlen, 10 irrationale Größen; 11-13 die Raumgeometrie, die in dem Nachweis gipfelt, daß es nur fünf regelmäßige Körper gibt; die Bücher 14 und 15 sind spätere, nicht von Euklid stammende Hinzufügungen [...] Die 'Elemente' blieben jahrhundertelang das allgemein gebräuchliche Lehrbuch der Geometrie und erschienen in rund tausend verschiedenen Ausgaben und Übersetzungen" (PMM 25). - Der Bearbeiter und Herausgeber Lukas Brunn "studierte 1598-1601 in Leipzig; seit 1607 war er Schüler des Mathematikers Johannes Praetorius, danach des Malers und Radierers Johannes Hauer in Nürnberg. Seit 1619 lebte er als Inspektor der Kunstkammer in Dresden. Brunn erfand das auf einer Rechenschiene angebrachte Schraubenmikrometer zum Messen kleiner Größen" (DBE). Darüber hinaus studierte der in Adam Rieses Sterbeort Annaberg geborene Brunn auch bei dessen Sohn, dem Rechenmeister Abraham Riese, und stand in brieflichem Ausstausch mit Johannes Kepler (vgl. Doppelmayr in DBA I 152, 415). Die aufwendige architektonische Titelbordüre ist von Brunns Lehrer Johann Hauer signiert, der sich nebenbei "im Schleiffen optischer Gläser übte" (Doppelmayer zit. n. DBA I 152, 415) und dem ganz offensichtlich auch bei Gestaltung des vorliegenden Kupfertitels "sein genaues Studium der Perspektive sehr wol zu Statten kam" (Nagler VI, 348). - Recht selten; kein Exemplar auf internationalen Auktionen der letzten 30 Jahre nachgewiesen. - Teils unbedeutend gebräunt, sonst sehr schönes Exemplar des durchgehend illustrierten mathematischen Lehrbuchs. - VD 17, 23:288981F. Schweiger I, 112. Poggendorf I, 320. Jöcher I (DBA I 152, 418). Will I (DBA I 152, 417). Doppelmayr (Nachricht von Nürnbergischen Mathematicis und Künstlern 1740, zit. nach DBA I 152, 416). Nicht bei Graesse, Ebert und Hoffmann.
