Urstisio, Christiano/ Christian Wurstein; Michael Maestlin, & Georgius von Pubachius
Quaestiones in Theoricas Planetarum Georgii Purbachii (Bound With) Theoricae Novae Planetarum Georgij Purbachij
Basel, Switzerland: Sebastianum Henricpetri. 1596. Hardcover. Very Good. 1596 edition. Short, thick 8vo. in full vellum. pp. (48), 423, (1) 230, with many woodcut illustrations of planets and planetary orbits and movement, including four folding plates. Very good with minor ex-library markings: bookplate to pastedown with 'withdrawn' stamp, perforated stamp to title page, ink stamp to first page, and marking to spine. Binding tight, with moderate soil. Contents very clean and unmarked. RARE edition, with only one listed on OCLC. Wurstein (1544-1588) is credited to have first introduced Copernicus' work to Galileo Galilee, while Galileo's adoption of heliocentrism was often attributed to Michael Maestlin. This rare edition contains both Wurstisen's critique and interpretation to Puerbach but also Peurbach's own work. Digital images available upon request.
