Descripción

Two works bound in one volume, octavo (205 x 147 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, manuscript title on spine and bottom edge of edge block, deerskin ties. Ff. 30 misnumbered 20. Three or four small wormholes to spine and joints, scattered light foxing and old marginal dampstaining. An excellent copy. 47 full-page woodcut star maps, 68 full-page woodcut tables, woodcut diagrams and historiated initials. Eighth edition of the first printed star atlas, originally published in 1540. All early editions are rare. De la sfera del mondo is a traditional Ptolemaic-Aristotelian geocentric cosmography, but its appendix, De le stelle fisse, "represents the first printed star atlas, containing maps of the stars as opposed to simple pictures of constellations, and introducing the practice of identifying stars by letter, a method later adopted and expanded by Bayer" (Norman). Piccolomini was an early popularizer of science who wrote in the vernacular to extend scientific knowledge beyond the confines of church and university. Later Bishop of Patrae, Piccolomini belonged to the notable Sienese ecclesiastical family that produced two popes, including the great Renaissance figure Pope Pius II. BMC/STC Italian p. 514 (second part only); Houzeau & Lancaster 2491; Kenney 142 & p. 237–8; Norman 1696 (for fifth edition of 1559); Riccardi I, 268-69. N° de ref. de la librería 92530
