‎(PSEUDO-REGIOMONTANUS) - REGIOMONTANUS - JOHANN MÜLLER VON KÖNIGSBERG - KÜNIGSPERGER.‎

Reference : 29136

‎(Franckfurdt am Mayn (= Frankfurt am Main), durch Weygand Han/ in der Schnurgassen/ zum Krug (on colophon), [ca. 1550]). Small 4to (18 x 13,5 cm.). Full vellum bdg. made from a manuscript leaf, written in red and black ink, w. red (1- and 2-line) and one blue (2-line) initial, two columns (ca. 1450). Lacking about 1/3 of f. B1, affecting a schedule, small lower part of a woodcut of Saturn and probably about 8 lines of text; also lacking lower corner of D4, not affecting text or illustr. T-p. soiled and professionally repaired at outer left margin, not affecting text or illustr.; overall some soiling and brownspotting. A few small marginal wormholes. T-p. printed in red and black and w. large woodcut illustr. of the four elements, months, starsigns etc. incoorprated into a system, 7 woodcut-illustr. of the planets humanized, 12 woodcut illustr. of the starsigns, 3 woodcut illustr. figures of systems, 11 woodcut illustr. of sceneries belonging to the different months, one woodcut illustr. of a naked man showing which parts of his body are affected by which starsigns. A few woodcut vignettes. (37) ff. The first edition (see Adams K:88) of this rare work was printed in Strasbourg in 1528 and is very scarce, as are all the early editions. The book contains astronomical readings and tells how to behave regarding every-day exercises such as eating, bathing, sleeping etc. It also gives medical advise. The many woodcuts are ascribed to Hans Brosame. Regiomontanus (1436 - 76) is the Latinized version of the German Königberger or Künigsperger; the work is stated to be by him, but is probably not.‎

First appearance of a milestone paper in astronomy, giving the solution of the great problem of distances in the universe which had baffled astronomers ever since the time of Copernicus, announcing the FIRST SUCCESSFUL DISPLACEMENT OR PARALLAX OF A FIXED STAR and hence deducing the FIRST RELIABLE DISTANCE OF THE EARTH TO A FIXED STAR. The parallax observed corresponded to ab. 600.000 times that of the earth from the sun. On these grounds Bessel calculated the distance to about 11 light years, and this was confirmed by fresh investigations by Bessel in 1839-40 (the second paper offered).

The distance of sixteen seconds of arc between the components favored the accuracy of the determination of the parallax because pointing could be carried out with two star images. After observing for eighteen months, by the fall of 1838 Bessel had enough measurements for the determination of a reliable parallax. He found that p = 0.314? with a mean error of ±:0.020?.

Reference : 52737

‎Fundamenta Astronomiae pro Anno MDCCLV deducta ex Observationibus Viri incomparabilis James Bradley in Specula Astronomica Grenovicensi per Annos 1750 - 1762 institutis.‎

‎Regiomonti (Königsberg), Frid. Nicolovium, 1818. Folio. Near contemp. hcalf. Gilt spine with gilt lettering. A small nick at upper backhinge. (12),325,(1) pp. Light scattered brownspots. Top of title-page with old owners name and a small stamp. First edition of this milestone work in astronomical obeservation, where Bessel reduced the observations for the "personal equation" based on Bradley's observations and here published Bradley's Greenwich observations for the first time and making a catalogue of 3222 stars extracted from them.<br>"The positions of Bradleys stars valid for 1755 were published by Bessel as Fundamenta astronomiae pro anno 1755 (1818). This work also gives the proper motions of the stars, as derived from these observations of Bradley, of Piazzi, and of Bessel himself. It constitutes a milestone in the history of astronomical observations, for until then positions of stars could not be given with comparable accuracy: through Bessels work, Bradleys observations were made to mark the beginning of modern astrometry. During this investigation Bessel became an admirer of the art of observation as practiced by Bradley; and because Bradley could not evaluate his own observations, Bessel followed and also taught the principle that immediately after an observation, the reduction had to be done by the observer himself. Further, he realized that the accurate determination of the motions of the planets and the stars required continuous observations of their positions until such motions could be used to predict "the positions of the stars .... for all times with sufficient accuracy."

‎Leipzig, Grosse & Gleditsch, 1753. 4to. Contemp. full vellum. Faint handwritten title on spine. Two small stamps on titlepage. In: "Nova Acta Eruditorum Anno MDCCLII". Occassional brownspotting. The entire volume offered. Pp. 466-480. [Entire issue: (6), 720, (26) pp + 6 plates]. First printing of Bose's paper on astronomical observations of the moon. <br>"Bose, a merchant's son, was educated at the University of Leipzig, where he concentrated on philosophy, mathematics, and languages. In 1727 he received the M.A. and joined the philosophy faculty as a junior lecturer (Assessor) in mathematics and physics. In 1738 he accepted the chair of natural philosophy (Naturlehre) at the University of Wittenberg, where he remained until 1760, when the Prussians carried him off to Magdeburg as a hostage of war." (DSB).<br><br>"The Wittenberg professor Georg Matthias Bose was a main actor in the transformation of electricity from an academic branch of natural investigation into a fashionable amusement. If, during the 1730s, both Stephen Gray at the Royal Society of London and Charles Du Chisternay Dufay at the Académie des Sciences in Paris devoted themselves to the investigation of the electric matter, it was Bose and other "Saxon virtuosi" that, as the Gentleman's Magazineacknowledged in 1745, made electricity a subject à-la-mode, with "princes willing to see this new fire that man produced from himself, and which did not descend from heaven." (Bertucci, Therapeutic Attractions: Early Applications of Electricity to the Art of Healing, P. 271).<br><br>Many other papers by influential contemporary mathematicians, philosophers and historians are to be found in the present volume.‎

‎Francofurti apud Godefridum Tampachium, 1610. (Colophon: Uraniburgi, Ex Officina Typhographica Authoris, 1596). 4to. Bound to style in a fine later full vellum with handwritten title to spine. In all 176 leaves. (40),309,(1 - Errata Typhographica),(1 - Brahe's large woodcut device "Astronomien"). In the text 6 woodcuts (map of Hven, Uraniborg (full page) and Stjerneborg (full page)). Upper margins with faint small remains of dampstaining, mainly at end. Otherwise clean, as it is probably washed when given a new binding. A bit of fraying to upper margins of the last 10 leaves, not affecting the letters. According to Lauritz Nielsen, "some copies of this issue has an engraved portrait of Brahe pasted to verso of titlepage" - This copy without portrait. First edition, third issue. Nearly all of the book is printed on Hven on Brahe's own handpress, as only the title-sheet and title-page are changed by the Frankfurt-printer Tampach. Friends of Brahe, in particular Henrik Rantzau, urged Brahe to publish his correspondence, and the printing of this is known to have started long before 1590. However, as with all of Brahe's major works from the printing-office on Hven, it took many years before the book was finished. The contents mainly consist in the letters exchanged with Landgraf Wilh. of Hessen and his Court-astronomer, Christoffer Rothmann. Included in the book is a description written in German of the buildings and instruments found at Hven.<br><br>"This is the early correspondance of Brahe with the learned Landgraf William of Hesse containing detailed instructions for the construction of astronomical instruments. Brahe's observatory at Uraniborg, on the island of Hveen in Denmark, is shown;here the the last of the pre-telescope observations were made, which enabled Kepler to discover the laws of planetary motion."(Dibner, "Heralds of Science", No 4).<br><br>Thesaurus: 256. - Lauritz Nielsen, Tycho Brahes Bogtrykkeri p. 71., Bibl.
