PTOLEMY The Tetrabiblos of the famous astronomer and geographer Claudius Ptolemaeus (c. A.D. 100-178) of Egypt consists of four books, the title given in some MSS meaning Mathematical Treatise in Four Books, in others The Prognostics addressed to Syrus. The subject is astrology which in Ptolemys time as down to the Renaissance was fused as a respectable science with astronomy. Translations and commentaries are few, and only three Greek texts had been printed (all in the 16th century) before the present one and the one begun by F. Boll and finished by Emilie Boer in 1940
Ptolemy's Almagest by Claudi Ptolemeu( Book )

22 editions published between 1981 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ptolemy's Almagest is one of the most influential scientific works in history. A masterpiece of technical exposition, it was the basic textbook of astronomy for more than a thousand years, and still is the main source for our knowledge of ancient astronomy. This translation, based on the standard Greek text of Heiberg, makes the work accessible to English readers in an intelligible and reliable form. It contains numerous corrections derived from medieval Arabic translations and extensive footnotes that take account of the great progress in understanding the work made in this century, due to the discovery of Babylonian records and other researches. It is designed to stand by itself as an interpretation of the original, but it will also be useful as an aid to reading the Greek text."--Jacket

The Tetrabiblos, or Quadripartite of Ptolemy is one of the most signigicant surviving ancient texts about astrology.

In balance, the universe had a vast influence on earthly events, which was the basis for the belief in Astrology

Harmonics by Ptolemy( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ptolemy's comprehensive treatises on astronomy and geography were influential for nearly two millennia. Equally influential was his treatise on harmonics, the ancient science which combined and brought to completion the study of philosophy and science. This volume offers a comprehensive English translation and commentary of Ptolemy's Harmonics." "The treatise begins with Ptolemy's study of pitches and intervals, for which he extracts both an idealized musical scale and a new acoustical tool. After discussing modulation, he expands his horizons by applying musical intervals to the human soul and celestial bodies, ultimately describing a cosmic harmony." "The English translation faithfully reproduces Ptolemy's style and includes all the charts surviving in the manuscript tradition. The commentary offers a full exegesis of the text, loci paralleli, and citations of modern scholarly sources."--BOOK JACKET

Claudii Ptolemaei Opera quae exstant omnia by Ptolemy( Book )

35 editions published between 1898 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known for his 1906 discovery of lost texts in the Archimedes Palimpsest, Danish scholar Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1854-1928), professor of classical philology at Copenhagen, published numerous editions of ancient mathematicians, including Archimedes and Apollonius of Perga (also reissued in this series). Between 1898 and 1907, he published in three parts the extant astronomical works of Ptolemy, active in second-century Alexandria. The Ptolemaic system, his geocentric model of the universe, prevailed in the Islamic world and in medieval Europe until the time of Copernicus. This first part of Volume 1, published in 1898, contains a brief Latin preface and the Greek text of Books 1-6 of Ptolemy's major astronomical treatise, known as the Almagest. It demonstrates how to use astronomical observations to construct cosmological models and includes tables that make it possible for celestial phenomena to be calculated for arbitrary dates
