Im dritten Teil werden die Sonnenuhren und die Theorie des Sonnenquadranten behandelt.

Important account of the outbreak of the plague in Sicily in 1575/76 and the medical countermeasures introduced by the author. Ingrassia (c. 1510-1580) was an important anatomist, teaching at Naples, and a clinician: his work in Palermo was of great value in containing the outbreak of plague there. A Pars quinta was published in 1577 (see Wellcome I 3417), but this is not present here, nor in the British Library copy. It is similarly neither in the Waller copy, nor that described by Durling.

About this Item: Bachelier, Paris, 1851. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. In: Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Seances de l'Academie des Sciences 32, Paris, Bachelier, 1851. 4to. (266 x 216 mm); pp. 135-138 (entire volume: 1010 pages). New endpapers. Library stamp of Universitätsbibliothek Paderborn and some additional library markings on the lower margin of page 2. Pages 959 to 1010 (index according to author and topic) in facsimile. Modern cloth with gilt-embossed spine. ---- PMM 130 (offprint), Dibner 17, Norman 818 (offprint). - THE FIRST MECHANICAL DEMONSTRATION OF THE EARTH'S ROTATION FIRST EDITION, RARE. To postulate astronomical behaviour is one order of thought, to prove its demonstration is of quite another order. The rotation of the earth had been accepted since Copernicus but it remained for Foucault to demonstrate it. He suspended an iron ball pendulum from the dome of the Pantheon in Paris, set it swinging and chartered its constantly rotating angular shift and proved it to rotate completely in one day." (Dibner, Heralds of Science 17). Although the rotation of the earth had been accepted since Copernicus, it was Foucault who first demonstrated it by experiment."His early experiments were private, but Louis Napoleon (later Napoleon III) became so interested that he arranged for them to be repeated publicly. This was a splendid affair which took place in the Pantheon in 1851 before a fashionable audience. A heavy ball was suspended from the dome on a wire 220 feet long; beneath the ball was a table 12 feet in diameter covered with sand on which the ball would leave a mark. This is known as 'Foucault's pendulum'. It soon became apparent that the plane in which the pendulum was swinging moved in a clockwise direction and in about thirty-two hours the plane of vibration had completed a full circuit. The audience in the Pantheon was greatly impressed; some ladies fainted with excitement, while other spectators maintained that they could feel the earth move beneath them" (PMM 330). "Continuing to experiment on the mechanics of the earth's rotation, Foucault in 1852 invented the gyroscope, which, he showed, gave a clearer demonstration than the pendulum of the earth's rotation and had the property, similar to that of the magnetic needle, of maintaining a fixed diretion. Foucault's pendulum and gyroscope had more than a popular significance (which continues to this day). First, they stimulated the development of theoretical mechanics, making relative motion and the theories of the pendulum and the gyroscope standard topics for study and investigation. Second, prior to Foucault's demonstrations, the study of those motions on the earth's surface in which the deflecting force of rotation plays a prominent part (especially winds and ocean currents) was dominated by unphysical notions of how this force acted. Foucault's demonstrations and the theoretical treatments they inspired showed conclusively that this deflecting fore acts in all horizontal directions, thus providing the sound physical insight on which Buys Ballot, Ferrel, Ulrich Vettin, and others could build" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography V, p. 86).

La Figure de la Terre, Déterminée par: BOUGUER, Pierre

Two small stains to title, occasional very light mainly marginal spotting, but generally a very clean and crisp copy. Provenance: Jean-Baptiste de Secondat baron de La Brède (1716-1796), eldest son of Charles de Seconat Montesquieu (signature to title-page); Giancarlo Beltrame Library. A near fine copy with interesting provenance. ---- Norman 285; Sabin 6876; DSB II, p.343. FIRST EDITION of the most important work to issue from the Peruvian expedition of 1735-1744, undertaken by the French Academie Royale des Sciences with the goal of measuring an arc of the meridian near the equator, resulting in the determination of the shape of the earth as an oblate spheroid. Bouguer quarrelled with his fellow scientists on the expedition, La Condamine and Godin, and thus published his own report separately. "Bouguer's work on the expedition. . . was of high quality. Apart from the main geodetic program, he did an astonishing amount of other scientific work, measuring the dilatation of various solids by making use of the large range of temperatures found in the Cordillera, investigating the phenomena of atmospheric refraction and the measurement of heights with the barometer, devising a new type of ship's log, and undertaking a number of other researches, despite the very difficult physical conditions under which the geodetic measurements had to be carried out" (DSB). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

Nationale Paris) III, 160. - Vollständige Folge der ersten zehn Bände (= Halbjahresbände) einer erfolgreichen Familienzeitschrift, deren Erfolgsrezept die spannenden Reiseberichte u. Reiseerzählungen, die Schilderungen möglichst grausamer Sitten fremder Völker, der Kämpfe mit wilden Tieren, Indianern u. Menschenfressern, aufregender Menschenschicksale etc. war (die vielen, teils ganzseitigen Illustrationen stehen den Erzählungen in Blutrünstigkeit kaum nach). Allein 4 Robinsonaden ("Le Robinson des mers", "Le Robinson noir", "Madame Robinson" u. "Les Robinsons de la Guyane"), in Fortsetzungen erschienen, sorgen für permanente Spannung. Daß daneben ernsthafte Reiseschilderungen, Beschreibungen französischer Städte (mit Ansichten) u. Departements etc. stehen, fällt kaum auf. Sprache: Französisch. Seller Inventory # 1065983

'Leichter als Luft', S. 223). - Teils etwas fleckig. - Bottin, s. 453 ff. - "Among the many 'firsts' Verne could claim for this novel are: The first approach to spacefligth on an mathematical basis; 'From the Earth to the Moon' can be rightly considered the grandfather of astronautics. He was the first to approach the problem of space travel on realistic terms. Verne correctly understood the operation of rockets in the vacuum of space and was the first to suggest their use. Verne chose a site for his launch in Florida that is only 137 miles from Cape Canaveral. This was no coincidence; Verne chose this site for at least one of the same reasons NASA did. .'From the Earth to the Moon' has been enormously influential on the history and development of rocketry and spacefligth. Ziolkowski, the great Russion theoretician who laid a great deal of the mathematical groundwork for modern astronautics, said 'Possibly the first seeds of the idea were sown by that great fantastic author Jules Verne - he directed my thinking". Hermann Obert, wrote, 'I always had in mind the rockets designed by Jules Verne'. Already mentioned is von Brauns's expression of debt. Other space pioneers Verne influenced include American rocket pioneer Robert H. Goddard; rocket engine designer Valentin Glushko . cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first man into space; and astronaut Frank Borman." (Miller, the dream machines, 53 ff.). - Bottin, Bibliogr. J. Verne, S. 462. Ordway III/Liebermann, Blueprint for Space, 51 ff. Nicolson, Voyages to the Moon, 243 ff. Very good copy. Seller Inventory # 1744AB

About this Item: Artist: Lane Michael d ; issued in: London; date: d1785, 1785. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 60 x 89; - description: Seachart shows Fogo Island is the largest of the offshore islands of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It lies off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. Fogo Island is one of the oldest named features on the coast of Newfoundland. The Bertius map from 1606 shows Fogo Island as one of only about a dozen important features around the coast of Newfoundland. On French maps of the 16th to 18th centuries the island is referred to as Ile des Fougues. The island was likely named by Portuguese explorers and early fishing crews in the 16th century (Fogo means Fire in Portuguese). Until 1783 Fogo Island was on an area of the coast called the French Shore. Seller Inventory # AMC0932_500
