Poggendoff I, 1373; DSB VIII, p.28; Bierens de Haan 2667. RARE FIRST EDITION in Latin of Bedenckingen op den dagelyckschen, ende jaerlyckschen loop van den aerdt-kloot (Middelburg, 1629), translated by Martinus van den Hove, of van Lansberge's treatise on the probability of earth's motion according to the Copernican theory. In his preface, Van den Hove considered Lansberge, not Tycho Brahe, as the one who was restoring astronomy. The second work is a reply by the Leuven professor Fromondus (1587-1653) to Jacobus Lansbergius' defense of his father Philippus (Apologia, 1633), who had been attacked by Fromondus in his Ant-Aristarchus (1631). - Visit our website to see more images!
