         Delle Lettere libri VII con nuova aggiunta ristampati, & con somma diligenza da molti errori corretti.

      In Vinegia, Presso Altobello Salicato 1572 - petit in-8, 296 ff. chiff., 7 ff. de tables non chiff., maroquin rouge, dos lisse orné d'un semé de deux monogrammes et d'une fleur de lys, titre doré dans un cartouche, triple filet doré d'encadr. sur les plats, filet sur les coupes, tranches dorées (rel. début XVIIe). Mors très habilement restaurés. Cette nouvelle édition, en caractères italiques et réglure encadrant la typographie, a été augmentée et corrigée "con somma diligenza". Claudio Tolomei (1492-1555), littérateur et docteur en droit natif de Sienne, se rendit à Rome et se rangea du côté du pape Clément VII contre la République Siennoise. Contraint à l'exil, il entra au service du cardinal Hippolyte de Médicis puis du fils du pape Paul III, Pierre-Louis Farnèse, devenu duc de Parme en 1545. Après l'assassinant de ce dernier en 1547, il se retira à Padoue. Revenu à Rome, il fut nommé évêque de Corsola puis rappelé dans sa patrie, il fut chargé d'une mission en France auprès du roi Henri II. Indépendamment de ses fonctions, il se consacra à la défense de la langue italienne et fonda l'Accademia della Virtu dont le programme des études était de traduire en italien les formes littéraires et grammaticales du latin classique. Au travers de plus de trois cent cinquante lettres adressées à de nombreux correspondants, dont les littérateurs Atanagi, Citolini, Luca Contile ou le fameux Pietro Aretino, l'imprimeur Paolo Manuzio mais aussi Gio. Battista Grimaldi, l'évêque de Brescia ou le cardinal de Médicis, Tolomei dispute des modèles antiques, de prononciation, d'orthographe ou de pureté de la langue. Une petite carte gravée sur bois se trouve in-texte. Elle situe, en Toscane, sur la mer Tyrrhénienne, le mont Argentaro, le lieu idéal, selon l'auteur, pour fonder "una bella citta". Pierre Vidal en emprunta le nom dans le titre Les Epistres argentées (Paris, 1572) qui est la première traduction française du présent texte mais qui n'en contient que les principales lettres. Élégante reliure aux chiffres de Louise-Marguerite de Lorraine (1577-1631), fille du duc de Guise, dit le Balafré, et de François de Bourbon, prince de Conti (1558-1614), cousin germain du roi Henri IV, qui l'épousa en 1605. L'association se lit sous la forme des deux initiales Y (gamma) entrelacées pour les Guises et des deux initiales B affrontées pour les Bourbons. Guigard, I, 116. Olivier, 2621.

         Elementorumlibri XV una cum scholiis antiquiis. A Federico CommandinoUrbinatenuper in latinum conversi, commentariisque quibusdam illustrati.

      Camillo Franceschini, [Colophon:] Pesaro 1572 - First edition of ?the most important Latin translation [of Euclid] . it was the foundation of most translations which followed it up to the time of Peyrard [1814]? (Heath, The Thirteen Books of Euclid's Elements, Vol. 1, p. 104). Euclid?s Elements is the ?oldest mathematical textbook still in common use today? (PMM). The Elements ?exercised an influence upon the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible? (DSB). Federico Commandino was the most prolific Renaissance translator of Greek mathematical works, as well as the most mathematically competent. His translation was the first to be based upon a tolerably critical Greek original. Although thus far only the chief book-producing centers like Venice had been involved in printing Euclid, this new translation into Latin of the fifteen books of the Elements was produced in Pesaro, a provincial seaport on the Adriatic near Urbino.The first printed Latin translations of Euclid were the medieval translation from the Arabic by Campanus of Novara (Venice, 1482), followed by a Latin translation from the Greek by Bartolomeo Zamberti (Venice, 1505). These two translations, together with the editio princeps of the Greek (Basel, 1533), were the basis for all subsequent Latin editions for more than half a century, and for many translations after that. ?However, the better part of this influence was interrupted suddenly and decisively by the fourth major version: the publication at Pesaro in 1572 of the Latin translation by Federico Commandino of Urbino. Commandino?who, in addition to the place he holds in the history of physics deriving from his Liber de centro gravitatis (Bologna, 1565), prepared exacting Latin versions of many other Greek mathematical works?was clearly the most competent mathematician of all Renaissance editors of Euclid. He was also most astute in his scholarship, for we know that in addition to the 1533 editio princeps, he employed at least one other Greek manuscript in establishing the text for his translation. For the first time, save for the anonymous translation in the twelfth century, we now have a version (no matter what language) of the Elements that is solidly based on a tolerably critical Greek original. It even includes, also for the first time, a rendering of numerous Greek scholia. Aware, but critical, of the efforts of his predecessors, Commandino leaves no doubt of the advantage of staying closer to the Greek sources so many of them had minimized, if not ignored. The result of his labors may prove to be of less fascination than other versions, since it so closely follows the Greek we already know, but the importance it held for the subsequent modern history of the Elements is immeasurable. It came to serve, in sum, as the base of almost all other proper translations before Peyrard?s discovery of the ?pristine? Euclid in the early nineteenth century. Thus, to cite only the most notable cases in point, Greek texts of the Elements with accompanying Latin translation frequently based the latter on Commandino: for example, Henry Briggs?s Elementorum Euclidis libri VI priores (London, 1620) and even David Gregory?s 1703 Oxford edition of Euclid?s Opera omnia (which was the standard, pre-nineteenth-century source for the Greek text). Commandino was also followed in later strictly Latin versions: that of Robert Simson, simultaneously issued in English at Glasgow in 1756; and even that of Samuel Horsley, appearing at London in 1802. Vernacular translations often followed a similar course, beginning with the Italian translation, revised by Commandino himself, appearing at Urbino in 1575 and extending to and beyond the English version by John Keill, Savilian professor of astronomy at Oxford, in 1708? (DSB, under Euclid).?Born ca. 300 BC in Alexandria, Egypt, ?Euclid compiled his Elements from a number of works of earlier men. Among these are Hippocrates of Chios (flourished c. 440 BC), not to be confused with the physician Hippocrates of Cos (c. 4

         Antique Map-DORDRECHT-NETHERLANDS-GUICCIARDINI-Hogenberg-Braun-ca. 1572

      - Antique map, titled: 'Dordrecht' - Coloured plan of Dordrecht in the province of Zuid-Holland, The Netherlands, Holland. With the coats of arms of Dordrecht and Holland. Handcoloured etching/engraving on laid (verge) paper. Description: the famous city Atlas: "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", published in 1575-1612. Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Franz Hogenberg' after 'Georg Braun'. Franz Hogenberg (1533-1588) was the son of a Munich engraver who settled in Malines. He engraved most of the plates for Ortelius' Theatrum and the majority of those in the Civitates, and may have been responsible for originating the project. Worked and died in Cologne/Germany. He was a prolific copper engraver and etching artist of maps and town views. In cooperation with Georg Braun he created the first four volumes of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum in 1572. The fifth and sixth volume was created by Simon van den Neuwel (Novellanus). This map was made by the Dutch cartographer Jan van Liefrinck, who was active in Leiden in 1567 and died there in 1599. He received payment on 22 August 1580 from the Leiden Magistracy for his map and view of the city, which was destined for Plantijn's edition of Guicciardini's Descrittione, 1581. Georg Braun (1542-1622), a German publisher and Frans Hogenberg issued the famous six volume town book "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" between 1572 and 1618. The volumes originally published in Latin, follow by German and French translations. The plates passed to Jan Janssonius who reissued the town books in 1657 while removing the costume figures on the plates. Condition: Very good, given age. Original middle fold, tear in middle fold, reinforced with acid free archival tape. Text on reverse. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling.

Traccia di tarlo limitata ad una ventina di cc. con lesione di alcune parole, strappetto all'angolo alto di c. 121 (senza interessamento di testo), alcune macchiette sparse, sporadici e marginali aloni, peraltro esemplare nel complesso genuino e ben conservato. Jean Faber (12?-1340), detto Joannes Roncinus, fu giureconsulto francese di considerevole fama ed autorità. Dedicatosi ben presto all'opera d'attualizzazione del diritto romano, produsse questo celebre commentario alle Istituzioni giustinianee oltre ad un Breviarium del Codex tralatiziamente attribuitogli. Tiraqueau, du Moulin e Boerius lo definirono rispettivamente "vir apud nos maxime autoritatis", "subtilissimus et consumatissimus juris doctor" e "summum Franciae Consuetudinarium" (cfr. Taisand, Les vies des plus celebres jurisconsultes, ed. 1737, pp. 181-82). In definitiva Faber va inserito a pieno titolo fra gli eredi della grande tradizione degli Ultramontani. Oltre che creatore di dottrina fu, così riportano le antiche biografie, impegnato come giudice e, notizia su cui peraltro sussistono dubbi, come cancelliere di Francia. L'opera appare fondata sulle dottrine di Azzone, Dino del Mugello, Guido da Baisio, Innocenzo IV, Enrico da Susa (ed ovviamente Jacobus de Ravanis) e va cronologicamente inserita nel contesto storico-dottrinale immediatamente pre-bartoliano.

         1572 Greek ed PLUTARCH Parallel Lives Alexander the Great Cicero Henri Estienne

      [Paris : Henrici Stephani, 1572.] - 1572 Greek ed PLUTARCH Parallel Lives Alexander the Great Cicero Henri Estienne “The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” Plutarch ‘Plutarch’s Lives’ or ‘Parallel Lives’ is one of the most important and comprehensive collection of biographies of famous Greek and Roman figures. Plutarch was not so much focused on providing a historical account of these famous individuals as much as he was seeking to write of the type of person they were and the life in which they lived. He focuses on Alexander the Great, Romulus and Remus, Demosthenes, Cicero, Brutus, Julius Caesar, and many other important figures. Published complete in Greek, this 3-volume example contains the complete ‘Parallel Lives’ in Greek with continuous pagination. Interestingly, Estienne’s pagination for ‘Parallel Lives’ became the standard pagination for Plutarch editions during his day. This edition of ‘Parallel Lives’ is from the first complete printed edition of Plutarch. Brunet claims this edition to have “beautiful execution and accuracy”.

         Elementorum libri XV una cum scholiis antiquiis. A Federico Commandino Urbinate nuper in latinum conversi, commentariisque quibusdam illustrati.

      [Colophon:] Pesaro: Camillo Franceschini, 1572. First edition of "the most important Latin translation [of Euclid] ... it was the foundation of most translations which followed it up to the time of Peyrard [1814]" (Heath, The Thirteen Books of Euclid's Elements, Vol. 1, p. 104). Euclid's Elements is the "oldest mathematical textbook still in common use today" (PMM). The Elements "exercised an influence upon the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible" (DSB). Federico Commandino was the most prolific Renaissance translator of Greek mathematical works, as well as the most mathematically competent. His translation was the first to be based upon a tolerably critical Greek original. Although thus far only the chief book-producing centers like Venice had been involved in printing Euclid, this new translation into Latin of the fifteen books of the Elements was produced in Pesaro, a provincial seaport on the Adriatic near Urbino. The first printed Latin translations of Euclid were the medieval translation from the Arabic by Campanus of Novara (Venice, 1482), followed by a Latin translation from the Greek by Bartolomeo Zamberti (Venice, 1505). These two translations, together with the editio princeps of the Greek (Basel, 1533), were the basis for all subsequent Latin editions for more than half a century, and for many translations after that. "However, the better part of this influence was interrupted suddenly and decisively by the fourth major version: the publication at Pesaro in 1572 of the Latin translation by Federico Commandino of Urbino. Commandino--who, in addition to the place he holds in the history of physics deriving from his Liber de centro gravitatis (Bologna, 1565), prepared exacting Latin versions of many other Greek mathematical works--was clearly the most competent mathematician of all Renaissance editors of Euclid. He was also most astute in his scholarship, for we know that in addition to the 1533 editio princeps, he employed at least one other Greek manuscript in establishing the text for his translation. For the first time, save for the anonymous translation in the twelfth century, we now have a version (no matter what language) of the Elements that is solidly based on a tolerably critical Greek original. It even includes, also for the first time, a rendering of numerous Greek scholia. Aware, but critical, of the efforts of his predecessors, Commandino leaves no doubt of the advantage of staying closer to the Greek sources so many of them had minimized, if not ignored. The result of his labors may prove to be of less fascination than other versions, since it so closely follows the Greek we already know, but the importance it held for the subsequent modern history of the Elements is immeasurable. It came to serve, in sum, as the base of almost all other proper translations before Peyrard's discovery of the "pristine" Euclid in the early nineteenth century. Thus, to cite only the most notable cases in point, Greek texts of the Elements with accompanying Latin translation frequently based the latter on Commandino: for example, Henry Briggs's Elementorum Euclidis libri VI priores (London, 1620) and even David Gregory's 1703 Oxford edition of Euclid's Opera omnia (which was the standard, pre-nineteenth-century source for the Greek text). Commandino was also followed in later strictly Latin versions: that of Robert Simson, simultaneously issued in English at Glasgow in 1756; and even that of Samuel Horsley, appearing at London in 1802. Vernacular translations often followed a similar course, beginning with the Italian translation, revised by Commandino himself, appearing at Urbino in 1575 and extending to and beyond the English version by John Keill, Savilian professor of astronomy at Oxford, in 1708" (DSB, under Euclid). "Born ca. 300 BC in Alexandria, Egypt, "Euclid compiled his Elements from a number of works of earlier men. Among these are Hippocrates of Chios (flourished c. 440 BC), not to be confused with the physician Hippocrates of Cos (c. 460-375 BC). The latest compiler before Euclid was Theudius, whose textbook was used in the Academy and was probably the one used by Aristotle (384-322 BC). The older elements were at once superseded by Euclid's and then forgotten. For his subject matter Euclid doubtless drew upon all his predecessors, but it is clear that the whole design of his work was his own ... "Euclid understood that building a logical and rigorous geometry depends on the foundation--a foundation that Euclid began in Book I with 23 definitions (such as "a point is that which has no part" and "a line is a length without breadth"), five unproved assumptions that Euclid called postulates (now known as axioms), and five further unproved assumptions that he called common notions. Book I then proves elementary theorems about triangles and parallelograms and ends with the Pythagorean theorem ... "The subject of Book II has been called geometric algebra because it states algebraic identities as theorems about equivalent geometric figures. Book II contains a construction of "the section," the division of a line into two parts such that the ratio of the larger to the smaller segment is equal to the ratio of the original line to the larger segment. (This division was renamed the golden section in the Renaissance after artists and architects rediscovered its pleasing proportions.) Book II also generalizes the Pythagorean theorem to arbitrary triangles, a result that is equivalent to the law of cosines. Book III deals with properties of circles and Book IV with the construction of regular polygons, in particular the pentagon. "Book V shifts from plane geometry to expound a general theory of ratios and proportions that is attributed by Proclus (along with Book XII) to Eudoxus of Cnidus (c. 395/390-342/337 BC). While Book V can be read independently of the rest of the Elements, its solution to the problem of incommensurables (irrational numbers) is essential to later books. In addition, it formed the foundation for a geometric theory of numbers until an analytic theory developed in the late 19th century. Book VI applies this theory of ratios to plane geometry, mainly triangles and parallelograms, culminating in the "application of areas," a procedure for solving quadratic problems by geometric means. "Books VII-IX contain elements of number theory, where number (arithmos) means positive integers greater than 1. Beginning with 22 new definitions--such as unity, even, odd, and prime--these books develop various properties of the positive integers. For instance, Book VII describes a method, antanaresis (now known as the Euclidean algorithm), for finding the greatest common divisor of two or more numbers; Book VIII examines numbers in continued proportions, now known as geometric sequences (such as ax, ax2, ax3, ax4, ...); and Book IX proves that there are an infinite number of primes. "According to Proclus, Books X and XIII incorporate the work of the Pythagorean Thaetetus (c. 417-369 BC). Book X, which comprises roughly one-fourth of the Elements, seems disproportionate to the importance of its classification of incommensurable lines and areas (although study of this book would inspire Johannes Kepler [1571-1630] in his search for a cosmological model). "Books XI-XIII examine three-dimensional figures, in Greek stereometria. Book XI concerns the intersections of planes, lines, and parallelepipeds (solids with parallel parallelograms as opposite faces). Book XII applies Eudoxus's method of exhaustion to prove that the areas of circles are to one another as the squares of their diameters and that the volumes of spheres are to one another as the cubes of their diameters. Book XIII culminates with the construction of the five regular Platonic solids (pyramid, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron) in a given sphere" (Britannica). Rose (p. 185) emphasizes the importance of Commandino to the mathematical renaissance of the sixteenth century: "Perhaps the clearest perception of the mathematical renaissance is to be found in the writings of the Urbino school. Not only did Commandino, Guidobaldo dal Monte and Bernardino Baldi (1533-1617) pursue the revival of Greek mathematics and the restoration of mathematical certainty, but in their thought there also emerged a strong sense of the historical development of mathematics. The idea of a mathematical renaissance is especially evident in the tributes paid to the founder of the Urbino school by his two important pupils. Guidobaldo writes in 1577: 'Yet in the midst of that darkness (though there were also some other famous names) Federico Commandino shone like the sun. He by his many learned studies not only restored the lost heritage of mathematics, but actually increased and enhanced it. For that great man was so well endowed with mathematical talent that in him there seem to have lived again Archytas, Eudoxus, Hero, Euclid, Theon, Aristarchus, Diophantus, Theodosius, Ptolemy, Apollonius, Serenus, Pappus and even Archimedes himself, for his commentaries on Archimedes smell of the mathematician's own lamp. And lo! just as he had been suddenly thrust from the darkness and prison of the body (as we believe) into the light and liberty of mathematics, so at the most opportune time he left mathematics bereft of its fine and noble father and left us so prostrate that we scarcely seem able even by a long discourse to console ourselves for his loss.' And Baldi: 'Commandino with the greatest diligence and insight restored to light, to dignity and to splendour the works of nearly all the principal writers of the age in which mathematics had flourished.'"
