Une suite de l'ouvrage précédent, qui traite des applications pratiques. La plus grande partie est consacrée à l'astronomie et ses instruments. L'auteur traite aussi des cadrans solaires, de géographie, de navigation, d'arpentage, de balistique... Le mathématicien et astronome Daniel Santbech était hollandais.

Exemplaire dans une magnifique reliure en maroquin aux armes et au chiffre de JACQUES-AUGUSTE DE THOU. Ce volume porte ses seules armes et a donc été relié avant 1587, date de son premier mariage. Jacques-Auguste de Thou (1553-1617) commença sa collection vers 1573. Ce fameux bibliophile a rassemblé des milliers de livres sur tous les sujets, mais, il est cependant rare de rencontrer un livre de science portant ses armes. Celui-ci a été particulièrement bien relié, dans un maroquin précieux, probablement de Turquie. ******************* ENGLISH *********** Copy from the famous library of Jacques Auguste de Thou, in a splendid morroco binding. First edition given by Daniel Santbech. He revised and augmented this work by Regiomontanus, according to Copernicus' discoveries. Written in 1464, it was published for the first time in 1533 in Nuremberg. "The first systematic treatise on plane and spheric trigonometry to be published in Europe. (...) With 'De triangulis' trigonometry was established as an independent discipline. Regiomontanus' original purpose, however, had been to furnish astronomers with a mathematical technique essential for their studies, and in this De triangulis had a success perhaps greater than its author could have dreamed of. For in 1539 Georg Joachim Rheticus presented a copy of the work's 1533 edition as a gift to Copernicus. The great astronomer had already written the trigonometrically-based portion of his De Revolutionibus without knowledge of his predecessor's treatise. After reading the new book, Copernicus modified the presentation of several of his own indispensable theorems by inserting two leaves in the manuscript of the De Revolutionibus. Hence, Rheticus' remark that Regiomontanus began the reconstruction of astronomy that Copernicus completed takes on a fuller meaning." (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics). Bound with: - SANTBECH. Problematum astronomicorum and geometricorum sectiones septem ... Basileae, Per Henrichum Petri, and Petrum Pernam, 1561. First edition. A continuation with practical applications of the previous work. Most of the book is devoted to astronomy and its instruments. The author also deals with sundials, geography, navigation, surveying, ballistics ... Daniel Santbech (fl. 1561) was a Dutch mathematician and astronomer. In 1651, Riccioli gave his name to a crater on the Moon. Both volumes are illustrated with many woodcuts in text. Bound with: - REGIOMONTANUS, PEURBACH. In Ptolemaei magnam compositionem, quam almagestum vocant, libri tredecim. Nuremberg, Apud Ioannem Montanum & Ulricum Neuberum, 1550. Third edition of the first complete translation of Ptolemy, given by Peurbach and Regiomontanus from a Greek manuscript discovered in Byzantium. (The first Venice, 1496, the 2nd Basel, 1543). Title in black and red and many wood cuts in the margins. Contemporary yellow morroco, spine gilt with nerves, arms of de Thou gilt on boards. Splendid copy with a distinguished provenance.
