      A remarkable sammelband containing the bulk of Oughtred's published works, with the exception of his <i>Mathematical recreations</i>. Oughtred (1574-1660) was one of the most important and influential mathematicians of the first half of the seventeenth century and was much admired by Newton, who described him as "a man whose judgment (if any man's) may be safely relied upon" (<i>Correspondence</i> III, 364). Oughtred "exercised a formative influence on a host of young men with a mathematical bent, alike at the university level and at the instrument maker's bench" (Taylor, <i>Practitioners</i>, p. 192). One of Oughtred's pupils, William Forster, visited him at his rectory at Albury, Surrey in 1630, and persuaded him to let him translate and publish his Latin treatises.<br/><br/> Ad I. Third and best edition of Oughtred's most important work, edited by John Wallis, with three further treatises published here for the first time (or the first time in Latin for the last). <i>Clavis mathematicae</i> (<i>The key of the mathematics now forged and filed</i> in the English edition, 1647) was first published as <i>Arithmeticae in numeris</i> in 1631 and contained all that was then known in arithmetic and algebra. Both popular and hugely influential, both in England and on the Continent, the <i>Clavis</i> was translated into English in 1647 by Robert Wood and as late as 1694 a new translation by Halley was published. It was here that Oughtred introduced the signs x for multiplication and :: for proportion, along with many other signs and abbreviations which have not been adopted, though in a number of cases his lead has been followed and similar symbols have become standard. The second part of the main work, 'De aequationum affectarum resolution in numeris,' treats the approximate numerical solution of polynomial equations by a method which goes back to Viète and of which the modern 'Newton-Raphson' method is a further development. After two geometrical tracts, here in their first editions, the work concludes with a more practical treatise on laying out sundials by geometry (this was first printed in English in 1647 with the translation of the <i>Clavis</i>).<br/><br/> Ad II. First edition. Although, according to Aubrey, Oughtred burnt "a world of papers" just before his death in 1660, he also left behind a great number of papers on mathematical subjects; and, in most of his Greek and Latin mathematical books there were found notes in his own handwriting, with an abridgment of almost every proposition and demonstration in the margin. These came into the hands of Sir Charles Scarborough (1616-94), first physician to Charles II, who prepared those which were suitable to be printed for the university press. The resulting collection, <i>Opuscula Mathematica hactenus inedita</i>, contains the following pieces: 1. Institutiones mechanics. 2. De variis corporum generibus gravitate et magnitudine comparatis. 3. Automata. 4. Questiones Diophanti Alexandrini, libri tres. 5. De triangulis planis rectangulis. 6. De divisione superficierum. 7. Musicae elementa. 8. De propugnaculorum munitionibus. 9. Sectiones angulares. <br/><br/> Ad III. Second edition of the first manual for the slide-rule - the every-day pocket calculating device of scientists and engineers for the next three centuries - invented by Oughtred about 1621. <i>Circles of proportion</i> was first published in 1632-3 and describes the principles of logarithmic scales and the use of the slide-rule in a wide range of applications including astronomical and navigational. The 'circle of proportion' of the title is a circular logarithmic scale with pointers, while the 'horizontal instrument' is a device for laying out sundials on any inclined plane. The rectilinear slide-rule is described at the end of the second part "An addition unto the use of the instrument, called the circles of proportion, for the working of nauticall questions" (this has a separate dated title page, but the pagination and register are continuous). <br/><br/> Oughtred was an early proponent of Napier's logarithms (1614), assisting Henry Briggs in the completion of Napier's tables, so it is not surprising that he should have been among those who saw the possibilities of mechanical methods of using logarithms. He was not, however, the first to publish: the circular instrument was described by Oughtred's pupil (and henceforth enemy) Richard Delamain in 1631 and the true slide rule was mentioned by Edmund Wingate, who probably invented it independently but later than Oughtred, in 1630. <br/><br/> This second edition was edited by Arthur Haughton who stresses that the changes he has made are with the author's 'advice and appointment.' There is a copy of the first edition in the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford with corrections, said to be in the author's hand, some of which were incorporated into the second edition (see STC 18899, note).. Three works in one volume, bound in contemporary yapped vellum (fore-edge of upper cover damaged with some loss, slight wear to other edges, re-cased). 8vo (159 x 104 mm).

Brief annotations in early chancery hand to preliminaries and interleaves of Plees, underlining in a few other places. A nice copy with an appealing association. * Later editions. First published in 1557, Staunford's Plees is considered a "principal book" by Pollock and Maitland, one that enables us "to trace our modern laws of crimes, from the later middle ages onwards." Based on Bracton and the Year Books, Staunford's treatise is divided into three parts. The first treats offences, the second treats jurisdiction, appeals, indictments, and defenses. The third addresses trials and convictions. Plees was written after Staunford was appointed judge of the common pleas in 1554.

The first part of the work, beginning with a biography of Paolo Luccio Anafesto, appointed Doge in 697, and ending with that of Agostino Barbarigo, elected in 1486, was written by the Venetian nobleman, Pietro Marcello, and first published in 1502 in Venice. The second part, by Silvestro Girello, covers the years from 1501 to 1544 (Leonardo Loredan to Pietro Lando), and was first added in the edition of 1554. Heinrich Kellner, who was the editor and translator of the German edition, wrote the third part, which ends with the 84th Doge, Alvise Mocenigo, elected in 1570. Appended are verses on various events in the history of the Venetian Republic by Venetian poet, Bernardo Giorgio, followed by a chronological list of the Doges. Adams M532. BM STC German p. 593.

        Historiarum et annalium libri qui exstant ... Liber de moribus Germanorum

      The PMM Plantin Edition of TacitusTACITUS, Publius Cornelius. LIPSIUS, Justus, [editor]. Historiarum et annalium libri qui exstant ... Liber de moribus Germanorum. Iulii Agricolae vita. Incerti Scriptoris dialogus de oratoribus sui temporis. Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1574.Lipsius' first edition of the works of Tacitus. Small octavo (6 11/16 x 4 1/16 inches; 170 x 105 mm). 762, [4, privilege and colophon] pp. with woodcut printer's device on title and figurated woodcut initials in text.Full eighteenth-century marbled sheep with gilt borders on the covers, spine gilt tooled and ruled in compartments, burgundy morocco gilt spine label, gilt board edges, marbled endpapers. Minor foxing. Contemporary owner's faded ink signature on title page, old underlining at places. A very attractive copy of this classic.This seminal edition was reprinted nineteen times and forms the basis for modern editions of Tacitus' text. Tacitus (c. 55-c. 120) is regarded both as the finest prose writer of the Silver Age of Roman literature and the era's most important historian. His principle work, the Annals and Histories, cover the period from the accession of Tiberius (AD 14) to the death of Domitian (AD 97). Tacitus held positions of high political power, eventually rising to become both Senator and Consul. His political position gave him access to all sources of information. "A natural pessimism had been confirmed by the reign of terror in the last years of Domitian reign, but looking back on the history of the century there was little to combat his theory that it was a period of gradual degeneracy to which the reign of Trajan had put a welcome period. Tacitus' standpoint is fundamentally ethical-he sees the woes which he describes as a warning to future generations, yet his sentimental longing for the heroic age of liberty is tempered by the realization that the strong central Imperial government is a beneficial necessity" (PMM). Tacitus was relatively unknown in the Middle Ages though his works were first printed in Venice in 1473. Justus Lipsius, the Dutch scholar, was said to have known all of Tacitus by heart. This is his great edition of Tacitus and it is one of the monuments of sixteenth century scholarship and was the basis for all later editions of the text.Printing and the Mind of Man 93.

        The History of France, Under the Kings of the Race of Valois, from the Accession of Charles the Fifth in 1364, to the Death of Charles the Ninth in 1574. In two volumes

      o the Death of Charles the Ninth in 1574. In two volumes, 1807. o the Death of Charles the Ninth in 1574. In two volumes, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce set of Wraxhall&#39;s brilliant history of medieval France. Complete in two volumes. With interesting armorial bookplates of Lilyan Montgomery Leader Williams to front pastedowns. Sir Nathaniel William Wraxall, first baronet (17511831), traveller and memoirist. In 1775 Wraxall published Cursory Remarks Made in a Tour through some of the Northern Parts of Europe, dedicated to Viscount Clare in gratitude for his patronage. Wraxall&#39;s travelogue is elegantly written, and its Scandinavian and Russian itinerary was novel and therefore of great interest to the reading public. Wraxall continued to travel around Europe during the late 1770s, visiting Germany and Italy in 17789. In 1780 he returned to England and became member of parliament for Hindon (Wiltshire). Between the late 1770s and 1815 Wraxall published several more works of travel narrative and historical anecdote, including Memoirs of the kings of France of the race of Valois: interspersed with interesting anecdotes, to which is added, A tour through the western, southern, and interior provinces of France (2 vols. , 1777), which was translated into French in 1784, and saw several English editions; Memoirs of the Courts of Berlin, Dresden, Warsaw, and Vienna (2 vols. , 1779); and an uncompleted History of France, from the Accession of Henry III to the Death of Louis XIV (3 vols. , 1795; 6 vols. , 1814). These works may be seen as rehearsals for the publication which was to bring Wraxall great fame and notoriety in 1815: the Historical Memoirs of my Own Time, from 1772 to 1784 (2 vols. ). The first part of the narrative is a collection of anecdotes gathered during his European travels, including some grisly tales of aristocratic murder allegedly told to Wraxall by Lady Hamilton; but it was the second and more substantial section which generated public interest and critical outrage. Here Wraxall describes in fascinating, often scurrilous detail the political world and the London social scene, commenting on everything from hairstyles and costume to the conduct of the American war. DNBThe House of Valois was a cadet branch of the Capetian dynasty, succeeding the House of Capet (or Direct Capetians) as kings of France from 1328 to 1589. A cadet branch of the family reigned as dukes of Burgundy from 1363 to 1482. They were descendants of Charles of Valois, the fourth son of King Philip III. They based their claim on the Salic law, which excluded females (Joan II of Navarre) as well as male descendants through the distaff line (Edward III of England), from the succession to the French throne. Condition: Rebound in half calf bindings with marbled boards, original decorative backstrips laid over. Externally sound, some shelfwear, slight loss to original spine labels. Internally, firmly bound. Bright with light scattered spotting throughout, and some damp staining throughvolume I. Pages iii-vi detached in volume I. Overall: GOOD..

First edition of the Hall; third edition of the Budgell.. The Hall lacks the first and final blanks; title on the Hall trimmed a little close at the top margin, but not touching the printing; some smudges and stains in the text; very good copy.. STC 12648a, the second of three printings [Hall]; Murphy, Bibliography of English Character Books, pages 11-12; and see Boyce, The Theophrastan Character in England, pages 122-135. 2 vols in 1, small 8vo, 18th century quarter vellum, marbled sides, red leather label, gilt lettering. Engraved frontis portrait to the Budgell. The first book in English fashioned after the character-writings of the Greek philosopher Theophrastus, and the beginning of what became a popular genre for English authors of the 17th and 18th centuries, among them Donne, Overbury, Earle, Braithwaite and Stephens. Hall?s work, attractively printed with woodcut borders and decorations, examines in concise sketches the nature of humility, patience, true-friendship, the busy-body, the superstitious, the inconstant, the distrustful, the flatterer, the vainglorious, the envious, etc. In addition to character-writing, Hall (1574-1656) was responsible for other important literary innovations, including Juvenalian satire. The Budgell translation, with a biographical introduction about Theophrastus, appropriately and interestingly compliments the Hall.
