In this work Kepler explained the theory of refraction by lenses, enlarged his system of geometrical and instrumental optics, and expounded the principle of the inverting telescope.
Visual Culture and the German Middle Ages
In this work he enlarged upon his ideas on refraction and wrote about the anatomy of the eye. He described, for the first time, the defect of spherical aberration and stated that it could be overcome by giving optical surfaces hyperboloidal forms. He showed, also for the first time, that before an object can be seen distinctly, its image must be sharply formed on the retina" King, The History of the Telescope, pp.

Nevertheless, he had set forth the essential background by which the formation of images with lenses could be explained, and so he was able to complete his Dioptrice within six months after he had received Galileo's Sidereus nuncius With great thoroughness Kepler described the optics of lenses, including a new kind of astronomical telescope with two convex lenses.
The preface declares, 'I offer you, friendly reader, a mathematical book, that is, a book that is not so easy to understand,' but his severely mathematical approach only serves to place the Dioptrice all the more firmly in the mainstream of seventeenth-century science. In the long preface, Kepler comments on Galileo's recent discoveries made with the telescope and their importance in supporting the theories of Copernicus. The work also reprints a series of related letters from Galileo to Kepler, from 13 November to 26 March The Dioptrice is Kepler's only work on optics.

Title and imprints from colophon on leaf [S3] recto. Text printed in gothic type in two columns, tables of contents also in three, and printer's register in four columns. Unrubricated copy. Paper only very little browned, a few light brown spots in places, light dampstaining and soiling to final few leaves.
Numerous contemporary and later ink marginalia and a few text markings. A fine copy. One of the outstanding works of scientific interest written between the time of Pliny and the sixteenth century. Based largely on Aristotle, but offset by occasional observations and an attitude of mind indicative of a scientific point of view Stillwell. Albertus' De animalibus libri was widely used not only in the 13th and 14th centuries, but also in the age of Humanism, in the form of manuscripts and printed editions as well, and until the first half of the 16th century, it retained its status as an authoritative text.
Leiden, Boston: Brill, , p. This was the year he finally acceded to the pleas of his Dominican confreres to compose a work explaining the natural science of Aristotle. The immediate product of this decision was Albert's paraphrastic commentary on the Physics, but there were long-term results as well. This work was but the first part of what was to become one of the major literary productions of the Middle Ages; a production which would establish Albert as, according to his envious contemporary Roger Bacon, an auctoritas on equal footing with Avicenna, Averroes, and Aristotle himself.
Albert's project, intended to 'make the new learning of Aristotle intelligible to the Latins,' was largely concerned with the natural sciences. He not only commented extensively on all of Aristotle's libri naturales; but also recorded his own extensive researches in several fields. By far the largest part of this vast compilation of the sciences is that devoted to zoology. Albert's massive De animalibus libri XXVI is not only the longest of his Aristotelian commentaries but also represents one of the most extensive records of empirical observation published before modern times.

Both issues of the first edition are very rare: only one complete copies has appeared at auction in the past 60 years. Another copy sold in was lacking the eight preliminary leaves and in a poorer condition. In our copy, the missing single bifolium in gathering x was apparently never bound in.

Published by Antonio di Bartolomeo Miscomini, Florence Early 19th-century navy morocco over wooden boards; boards, board edges, turn-ins and spine richly tooled in gilt, plain spine titled in gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers extremities lightly rubbed. Text bright and clean, a few tiny wormholes on first 3 and last 2 leaves partially filled , early marginalia to first leaves, short closed tear to blank margin of leaf 2i2, small dampstain in bottom gutter corner of last 2 quires. An outstanding copy in fine binding. Plotinus' works, compiled by his disciple Porphyry, are the primary documents of Neo-Platonism and played an important role in the revival of Plato in the Renaissance.
Ficino considered Plotinus the summus interpres of Plato. Ficino, encouraged by Pico della Mirandola, translated the works for his patron and financer of the task, Lorenzo de'Medici. Ficino completed the translation in and his commentary on them in Lorenzo died one month before their publication. Ficino's dedicatory letter to Lorenzo in this edition is an important document in the history of Florentine Platonism, as it recounts how Lorenzo's father, Cosimo de'Medici, having heard Gemistus Pletho's lectures on the mysteries of Plato, had commissioned Ficino to translate the Platonic corpus.
In the midst of his labours the first works of Hermes Trismegistus came to light, and Cosimo requested that Ficino interrupt his work on Plato in order to translate Hermes. From the same dedicatory letter we find that Pico encouraged Ficino to translate Plotinus. In Plotinus, Ficino had found parallels not only to Asclepius, which he mentions in De Vita, but also a source of his beliefs on astral influences, the value of spiritual experiences, and the role of music as a tool for raising souls to God.
