The rare first edition, with a frontispiece of the astronomers represented in the work, astronomical figures (eclipses), as well as diagrams in the text. The Calendarium Romanum vetus has an unusual title page in red and black. Tabularum emptori (p. 8) is signed by the author.
Contemporary brown sheep. Spine in decorated compartments. Red morocco title piece. Headpiece torn, tail-piece worn down. Two holes to third compartment of spine.
This important astronomical work contains the complete solar and lunar tables of Ptolemy, Copernicus, Tycho Brahe and Alphonsus. The commentaries are by Nicolas des Muliers (1564-1630) of Bruges, a Professor of Mathematics and Medicine at the University of Groeningen, and later its librarian. He wrote and published several works on astronomy: Institutionum astronomicarum libri duo, 1616, Iudæorum annus lunæ-solaris , and Turc-Arabum annus merê lunaris. Des Muliers was particularly interested in chronology but also makes numerous astronomical observations by means of a personal telescope. He was interested in both eclipses and the methods different astronomers used to make their calculations. He realized that astronomical calculations revealed the reality behind celestial bodies.
