Six separate title pages with woodcut illustration and one with copper engraving showing an astronomer at work with his instruments with Middelburg on the background. Binding somewhat soiled; a few pages with small waterstains. All together a very attractive copy!

Philippus Lansbergen (Gent 1561 - Middelburg 1632) was a theologian, mathematician and astronomer. In 1613 he settled down in Middelburg. He belonged to the first ones who defended the ideas of Copernicus in the Netherlands. His publications created sensations at home and abroad.
