Descrizione prodotto

Recased binding in contemporary vellum. (8), CLII. Title with woodcut vignettes, numerous woodcut
diagrams and tables in text, woodcut printer’s device on last leaf, historiated initials.
FIRST EDITION of one of the earliest publications to comment favourably on the new discoveries of Copernicus, with a preface by Philip Melanchthon.
‘Schöner in 1545 printed another work of his own of considerable length, namely, three books on the judgments of nativities, with another preface by Melanchthon. Schöner had been one of those who encouraged Copernicus to publish his magnum opus. Now in the present work, although preferring the method of Ptolemy in astrological
judgments to those of subsequent astrologers, Schöner maintained that the Copernican system was not unfavourable to astrology’ (Thorndike, V p. 367). Title and verso of last leaf dust-soiled, vertical crease through top third of title, affecting woodcut border, very light and even browning, a few marginal spots.
