An important commentary on Euclid (1st: Rome, 1574) by the famous Jesuit mathematician Christopher Clavius; "Probably the man who did the most of all the German scholars of the 16th century to extend the knowledge of mathematics ... He was an excellent teacher of mathematics, and his textbooks were highly esteemed because of their arrangement, particularly in the Latin schools. Sixtus V testified to his standing, saying: 'Had the Jesuit order produced nothing else than this Clavius, on this account alone should it be praised'" (Smith, History of Math. I, p. 334) 2 volumes in on. [128], 671, [1]; 680 pages. Title printed in red and black. Woodcut printer's device on title-page with numerous text diagrams.
