Ptolemy (2nd century)
Nuremberg, Ionnem Petreium, 1535
PA4404 Q3 1535
Editio princips in Greek. This work was first printed in Venice in 1484 in a different translation. The Greek text of Ptolemy’s “Tetrabiblos” (so called because it consists of four books) and that of the “Karpos” (a collection of 100 ‘karpos’ in Greek – astrological aphorisms erroneously attributed to Ptolemy) are followed by the first edition of Joachim Camerarius’ Latin translation of the first two books and of passages from the third and fourth of the Tetrabiblos (there is some disagreement among scholars as to whether these last two are Camerarius’ translations), and by Geovanni Pontano’s Latin version of the Karpos.
Next come seven pages of annotations by Camerarius on the first two books of the Tetrabiblos, Matthaeus Guarimbertus’ complete translation of the third and fourth books of the Tetrabiblos. Ptolemy’s Tetrabiblos is considered one of the most important astrological textbooks of antiquity. The Greek text here is well-printed and interspersed with graphic symbols representing the zodiac and the most important planets and stars. A chart explaining these ‘abbreviations’ is at the beginning of the book.

Joshua Henry Paul was the President of the Latter-day Saints University of Salt Lake City, a theological school which included high school, normal, business and college course of study. He studied at the University of Deseret, under John R. Park. In 1889 he became associate editor of the “Salt Lake Herald,” but resigned to become president of the Brigham Young College at Logan, which he left for the presidency of the Agricultural College of Utah. After he retired he became active in the movement for an old-age pension in the United States.
The Morning Road
Thomas Wood Stevens (1880- – 1942)
Chicago: The Blue Sky Press, 1902
PS3537 T475 M67 1902
Drawing from the great number of Chicago artists and writers of the time, three ambitious young men, Fred Langworthy, Tom Stevens, and Alden Noble – all students at the new Armour Institute – produced almost fifty books and a monthly magazine, under the name of The Blue Sky Press of Hyde Park, between 1899 and 1907. The publications, part of the international renaissance of bookmaking led by William Morris, represent a successful press producing handmade limited editions and a significant chapter in the history of American fine press in the early twentieth century.
