‎London, W.Nicol, 1826. 4to. No wrappers as extracted from ""Philosophical Transactions"" 1826 - Part III. With titlepage to Part III.Pp. 423-482 and 3 engraved plates, of which 2 are larger and folded. A faint dampstain to margins of plates.‎

‎James South "" fitted up an observatory attached to his house in Blackman Street, Borough, with two equatoreals of respectively five and seven feet focal length, besides a first-rate transit instrument by Troughton Here he observed, jointly with John Frederick William Herschel, 380 double stars. In presenting him with the gold medal of the Astronomical Society in 1826, Francis Baily spoke of his âprincely collection of instruments, such as have never yet fallen to the lot of a private individualâ. In 1835 South removed his five-foot telescope to Passy, near Paris, where he came to know Humboldt and Arago, and convinced Laplace of the reality of revolving stars by ocular demonstration in the case of 70 Ophiuchi. He executed there in a few months what Herschel called âa noble series of measuresâ on 458 compound stars, of which 160 were new " and for these labours, together with his paper âOn the Discordances between the Sun's observed and computed Right Ascensions,â presented to the Royal Society on 8 June 1826 (the paper offered), was awarded the Copley medal in 1826. He was elected a member of the Royal Society in 1821.‎

‎General astronomy‎

‎London, Arnold, 1922; un volume in 8 relié en cartonnage éditeur, (4), 392pp., figures dans le texte, 24 planches‎

‎EDITION ORIGINALE ---- "Spencer Jones's scientific interests were connected mainly with the tasks of the observatories with which he was associated : primarily the problems of positional and fundamental astronomy. His outstanding personal contributions were a study of the speed of rotation of the earth, and one of the solar parallax... He proved that the fluctuations in the observed longitudes of the celestial bodies can be attributed not to any peculiarities of their motions but, rather, to fluctuations in the angular velocity of rotation of the earth. He devoted several years to a new determination of the mean distance of the earth from the sun through measurements of the parallactic displacement of the asteroid Eros during its favorable opposition in 1930-1931... All considered, Spencer Jones's principal original contributions suffered - as did those of many others - from the fact that they were concerned with problems eminently suitable for treatment by automatic computing machinery, but were carried out ten years or so before its advent". (DSB XII pp. 573/574) ---- The celestial sphere - The earth - The earth in relation to the sun - Eclipses and occulations - Astronomical instruments - The planetary motions - Comets and meteors - The stars - The stellar universe - etc‎

‎In Procli Diadochi Sphaeram mundi, omnibus numeris longe absolutissimus commentarius. - [STOEFFLER'S SEMINAL COMMENTARY ON PROCLUS' ""SPHAERA"" - WITH IMPORTANT REFERENCES TO AMERICA]‎

‎TÃŒbingen, Hulderich Morhart, 1534. Small folio. Nice full vellum with yapp edges. A, exceptionally nice, clean, and fresh copy. One blank corner of f. 100 restored and small part of upper blank margin of last three leaves restored - far from affecting text. (7), (1 - blank), 133 ff + 1 leaf with portrait. With numerous woodcut astronomical illustrations and diagrams in the text and the woodcut portrai, which is attributed to Holbein the Younger.‎

‎The rare first edition of Stoeffler's highly important commentary on Proclus' astronomical main work, ""Sphaera"", together with the Latin translation of the text by Ludovicus Schradinus (Ludwig Schradin). Proklos' astronomical main work constitutes one of the most important and influential works of Ptolemaic cosmology, and through Stoeffler's pivotal edition of the text with his seminal commentaries, the work comes to play a significant role in Renaissance astronomy. Through Stoeffler, Proclus' ""Speara"" came to be regarded as the most significant Renaissance alternative to the otherwise dominating ""Tractatus de Sphaera"" by Sacrobosco - it constituted a Platonic-humanistic and anti-scholastic alternative that gave it a unique role in the history of spherical astronomy, strongly influencing the likes of Kepler. Johannes Stoeffler (1452-1531), Professor of mathematics at the University of TÃŒbingen, was a highly important and influential astronomer and astrologer, who counted both Melanchton and Sebastian MÃŒnster among his students. His commentary on Proclus' ""Spaera"" became extremely influential and was studied by the most important astronomers of the Renaissance. The work furthermore contains two important references to the discovery of America (f. 24r: ""Ut est America provincia occidentialis vicina tropico Capricorni ... inventa per Columbanum Ianuensem"" & f. 54v: ""Hoc in primis, deprehendit Vespucius nobilis mathematicus, terram nusquam oceano ut illi crediderunt) Ã nostra omnino interceptam""). ‎
