About this Item: apud Gulielmum Cauellat, sub pingui Gallina, ex aduerso collegij Cameracensis, Lutetiae [Parigi], 1561. Condition: MOLTO BUONO (VERY GOOD). 8vo (172x112 mm), nineteenth century marbled paper binding; 50 leaves. Xyl. initials and head-pieces. Printer’s woodcut device at title-page. Many xyl. illustrations in the text. UNCOMMON PAMPHLET BY JOHANNES DE SACROBOSCO ABOUT CHURCH CALENDAR. This copy is the B variation of the 1561 edition, without printing year at title-page. Johannes de Sacrobosco, also written Ioannis de Sacro Bosco (Genoa c. 1195 – c. 1256 in Paris), was a scholar, monk and astronomer who was a teacher at the University of Paris, recorded as originally from Genoa, Italy, residing scholar in Yorkshire and Scotland. He wrote a short introduction to the Hindu–Arabic numeral system which became the most widely read introduction to that subject in the later medieval centuries (judging from the number of manuscript copies that survive today). He also wrote a short astronomy textbook, Tractatus de Sphaera, which was widely read and influential in Europe during the later medieval centuries as an introduction to astronomy. In his longest and most original book, Sacrobosco correctly described the defects of the then-used Julian calendar, and, three centuries before its implementation, recommended a solution much like the modern Gregorian calendar. Provenance: Marginal handwritten study notes at some pages. References: IT\ICCU\LIAE\001284. OCLC, 28058516 (2 copies in USA and 1 copy in UK). Cond.: Presence of marginal water-stains at some pages and light spots. Overall, a very good copy. 62g. Seller Inventory # 1674

About this Item: [Wittenberg, Josef Clug, 1538?]. Sm-8vo. (112 pp.) New leather spine, later boards (binding worn; name of Philip Melanchton on title page crossed out, contemporary droodle on last page; corner from one page without loss of text, one page slightly trimmed chafing one woodcut) Adams (Holywood) 724. What Sacrobosco may be most famous for is his criticism of the Julian calendar. In his book on computus, entitled in Latin De Anni Ratione (English: On reckoning the years), dated circa 1235, he maintained that the Julian calendar had accumulated an error of ten days and that some correction was needed. The Julian calendar was instituted in the 1st century AD. and a calendar year contained 365.25 days, with the 0.25 day provided for by a Leap year every four years. However, the more precise length of a solar year is about 365.2425 days. The imprecise 365.25 days had resulted in an accumulated error of about 10 days by the 13th century. Sacrobosco made no proposal on how to get rid of the accumulated error. But looking to the future, he proposed to leave one day out of the calendar every 288 years to prevent continuing error. Sacrobosco's data were not quite as accurate as those of the Alfonsine tables which were produced a few decades later in the 1270s based on the Arabic Tables of Toledo. The astronomer Campanus of Novara in 1268 did similar work, again making use of Arabic astronomy sources. Sacrobosco too was influenced by Arabic astronomical sources, but not the same sources, and there is no indication in his writings that he could read Arabic. (Wikipedia). The preface by Melanchton is dated August 1538. He joined this text of 'De anni ratione' to his edition of 'De sphaera' on the instigation of Rheticus: "Valde probo consilium Georgii Ioachimi Rhetici, quod ad libellum de Sphaera adiunxit rationem Anni conscriptam ab eodem authore Ioanne de Sacro busto". (f.3.v.). FIRST EDITION. Collation: A4,B-G8,H4. Seller Inventory # 119566
