‘Gnomonices Biformis’ is a rare and highly important 17th-century study on gnomonics. Written by Agostino dal Pozzo, this treatise is an exhaustive study on the behavior of light, perspective, sundials, and solar clocks. Little is known of Pozzo; however, this work indicates that he extensively studied Euclid, Theodosius, and Apollonius of Perga. This work is filled with illustrations and charts – illustrating light rays, geometry examples, and astronomy figures.

 

This 1693 edition is based on the original 1679 printing and is exceedingly rare. In fact, only one example of the 1679 is found for sale worldwide!
