Gründlicher Bericht, von dem biss in den Februar. dieses 1665sten Jahrs, am Himmel gestandenen importirlichen Cometen, und dessen vermuthlich-merckwürdigen Bedeutung
by NOTTNAGEL, Christoph
Large engraved vignette on title. Two parts in one vol.  leaves. Small 4to, modern boards (some browning due to the quality of the paper). Wittenberg: M. Henckeln, [date on Appendix title:] 1665. First edition and very rare with the additional eight-leaf Appendix. Nottnagel (1607-66), was the highly regarded professor of mathematics at the University of Wittenberg; he wrote a number of books on astronomy, several of which went into later editions. This is a detailed account of the less impressive 1665 comet which arrived only a week after the 1664 comet was last sighted. Again, leading astronomers observed this new comet, including Hevelius, Auzout, Petit, Borelli, Hooke, and others. Very good copy. ❧ A.D.B., Vol. 24, pp. 45-46. Lalande, p. 264. Poggendorff, II, cols. 302-03. (Inventory #: 6343)
