RARE. The tables in the first eight leaves contain the first publication of all six trigonometric functions, designed to serve as an introduction to Rheticus' planned larger work on triangles, which was finally published in 1596 (see lot 566). The final four leaves of text contain a humanist dialogue between Hospes (a guest) and Philomathes, who represents Matthias Stojus, a pupil of Rheticus who also wrote the verse preface to this work (signed "Philomathes" in Greek). They discuss the importance of the geometry of triangles, in particular with reference to Copernicus, whose astronomical work Rheticus considers perfect.
