Aristarchus of Samos, the ancient Copernicus : a history of Greek astronomy to Aristarchus, together with Aristarchus's Treatise
on the sizes and distances of the sun and moon : a new Greek text with translation and notes by
Thomas Little Heath(
Book
)
98 editions published between 1913 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Greek astronomer Aristarchus of Samos was active in the third century BCE, more than a thousand years before Copernicus presented his model of a heliocentric solar system. It was Aristarchus, however, who first suggested  in a work that is now lost  that the planets revolve around the sun. Edited by Sir Thomas Little Heath (18611940), this 1913 publication contains the ancient astronomer's only surviving treatise, which does not propound the heliocentric hypothesis. The Greek text is based principally on the tenthcentury manuscript Vaticanus Graecus 204. Heath also provides a facingpage English translation and explanatory notes. The treatise is prefaced by a substantial history of ancient Greek astronomy, ranging from Homer's first mention of constellations to work by Heraclides of Pontus in the fourth century BCE relating to the Earth's rotation. Heath's collection of translated ancient texts, Greek Astronomy (1932), is also reissued in this series

Archimedes : sein Leben und Werk by
V. F Kagan(
Book
)
8 editions published in 1914 in German and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ze tří hlavních geometrů, kteří budovali řeckou matematiku, a to ryzího teoretika Eukleida, velikého materialisty Demokrita a vynalézavého obhájce sicilských Syrakus Archimeda, vyzdvihuje Kagan Archimeda a jeho smysl pro praktické discipliny, čímž je zvláště blízkým naší době. Osvětluje jeho význam spočívající ve vybudování aritmetických základů početní soustavy, v objevu přesného vyjádření rozměrů kruhu a jeho částí podle poloměru, výpočtech kuželoseček a geometrických těles, dále v položení základů integrálního počtu, vytvoření statiky a hydrostatiky, ve vynálezu závitnice a konstrukce pohybového šroubu a také v pracích optických i astronomických. Kagan snaží se též přiblížiti čtenáři Archimedovu exhaustační methodu, kterážto část je jediným náročnějším místem jinak populárního spisku o geniálním objeviteli, jehož práce znamenaly podstatný vědecký přínos a podnes tvoří základ některých teoretických i užitých disciplin. Monografii doplňuje stručný přehled Archimedových spisů a jejich nejdůležitějších vydání
