BERNOULLI, Jacob.
First edition of the "establishment of the fundamental principles of the calculus of probabilities" (Grolier/Horblit). Bernoulli's posthumous treatise was edited by his nephew and is considered the first significant book on probability theory. The title refers to conjectandi, or 'casting' as in the casting of dice. The Ars conjectandi "was the first systematic attempt to place the theory of probability on a firm basis and is still the foundation of much modern practice in all fields where probability is concerned-insurance, statistics and mathematical heredity tables" (PMM). The work is divided into four parts: the first a commentary on Huygens' De ratiociniis in aleae ludo (1657), the second a treatise on permutations and combinations (the former Bernoulli's own term), the third an application of the theory of combination to various games of chance, and the final, and most important, part which contains Bernoulli's philosophical thoughts on probability - as a measurable degree of certainty, necessity and chance, of moral versus mathematical expectation, and of a priori and a posteriori probability. It also contains his theorem, an application of probability to statistics. <br/><br/> PMM 179; Dibner, Heralds of Science, 110; Evans, First Editions of Epochal Achievements in the History of Science, 8; Grolier/Horblit, One Hundred Books Famous in Science,12; Sparrow, Milestones of Science, 21; Barchas, The Making of Modern Science, 46; Norman 216; Honeyman 291.. 4to: 180 x 145 mm.

MONTMORT, Pierre Rémond de
Rare first edition of one of the most important landmark works on probability theory of the eighteenth century. Based on the problem's set forth by Huygens in his famous treatise <i>De Ratiociniis in Ludo Aleae</i> (1657), it spawned the publication of De Moivre's two important works <i>De Mesura Sortis</i> (1711) and <i>Doctrine of Chances</i> (1718) as well as Bernoulli's celebrated <i>Ars Conjectandi</i> (1713). <br/><br/> "Huygens heard of about Pascal's and Fermat's ideas [on games of chance] but had to work out the details for himself. His treatise <i>De ratiociniis in ludo aleae</i> ... essentially followed Pascal's method of expectation. ... At the end of his treatise, Huygens listed five problems about fair odds in games of chance, some of which had already been solved by Pascal and Fermat. These problems, together with similar questions inspired by other card and dice games popular at the time, set an agenda for research that continued for nearly a century. The most important landmarks of this work are Bernoulli's <i> Ars conjectandi</i> (1713), Montmort's <i> Essay d'analyse sur les jeux de hazard</i> (editions in 1708 and 1711 [recto: 1713]) and De Moivre's <i>Doctrine of Chances</i> (editions in 1718, 1738, and 1756). These authors investigated many of the problems still studied under the heading of discrete probability, including gamblers ruin, duration of play, handicaps, coincidences and runs. In order to solve these problems, they improved Pascal and Fermat's combinatorial reasoning, summed infinite series, developed the method of inclusion and exclusion, a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Honore D'Urfe
- London -H. Moseley, T. Drink and H. Herringman, 1657 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An extremely scarce copy ofthe first English publication of Honore D'Urfe's Astrea, generally considered the first classical French novel. 'Translated by a person of quality': attributed to John Davies, (16251693). Davies's fluency in French came from the years he spent in France during the interregnum. He earned his living by translating works from French, Spanish, and Latin. With a vignette title, head pieces and capitals. Volumes II and III of three volumes. Honor d'Urfe, marquis de Valromey, comte de Chateauneuf (February 11, 1568 June 1, 1625) was a French novelist and miscellaneous writer. He was born at Marseille, and was educated at the College de Tournon. A partisan of the League, he was taken prisoner in 1595, and, though soon set free, he was again captured and imprisoned. During his imprisonment he read Ronsard, Petrarch and above all the Diana of Jorge de Montemayor and Tasso's Aminta. It was in Savoy that he conceived the plan of his novel Astrea, the scene of which is laid on the banks of the Lignon in his native province of Forez. It is a leisurely romance in which the loves of Celadon and Astrea are told at immense length with many digressions. The recently discovered circumstances of the marriages of the brothers have disposed of the idea that the romance is autobiographical in its main idea, but some of the episodes are said to be but slightly veiled accounts of the adventures of Henry IV.

SCANNELLI, Francesco
Cesena Neri 1657. Scarce first edition of this 17th-century survey of Italian painting, and a valuable document for developing Baroque "gusto" by a cultivated amateur. Scannelli follows Mancini’s tripartite division of Italian schools—Roman, Venetian and Lombard, and in an age in which microcosms were everywhere, he compared the whole of Italian painting to a body, likening Corregio to the brain, Titian to the heart, Raphael to the liver (!), and Veronese to the organs of reproduction. According to the Dictionary of Art, Il Microcosmo "stands alongside the works of Mario Boschini (La carta del navegar pittoresco, Venice, 1660) and of Luigi Pellegrino Scaramuccia (Le finezze dei penelli italiani, Padua, 1674), both of whom quoted him. Scannelli’s treatise represents a reaction against the notion, formulated by Giorgio Vasari, that the art of Florence was pre-eminent throughout Italy. He reevaluated the Lombard-Emilian school, led by Correggio, seeing in it an ideal synthesis of the finest achievements of the Venetian (Titian) and of the Roman-Tuscan (Raphael) schools. In taste, he showed classicist inclinations, modified by a liking for vivacity and naturalism, qualities well represented in the art of his ideal painter, Correggio" (Franco Bernabei, DA XXVIII.33-34). Little is known about the author, save that he was a priest and a physician, that he served at the court of Mantua until Francesco I d’Este died, and that he traveled to Milan, Rome and Venice. * Besterman, Old Art Books, p. 93; Schlosser-Magnino p. 614 (rather harsh elsewhere); Cicognara 204; Hollis BAL 6360 (sp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam (Tl. 2: "Ambsterdam"), Johan Jansson, 1657,1660.. 133 S. (die beiden Kupfertaf. aus dem ersten Teil wurden nicht miteingebunden; beiliegend Kopien) / 10 Bll., 113 S., Kl.-8°, Pergament d. Zt. mit Rückenschild. Ferguson I, S. 324f; Caillet 4579 u. 4580; Vgl. Rosenthal 376; Vgl. Ackermann IV, 73. - "In Anlehnung an Jacob Böhmes Natursprachentheorie führte Glauber hier ein neuartiges System der Benennung der Stoffe ein. Wie Böhme glaubte er, aus den natürlichen Namen der Stoffe etwas über jeweiliges Wesen herauslesen zu können." (Dünnhaupt 19.I.1 zur dtsch. Ausg. von 1658). - Über Glauber (1603 od. 1604-1670) siehe Biedermann S. 181f; Knopp S. 55f u. Schmieder S. 408f: "So sagt er z.B. in der Continuatio miraculi mundi, Frankfurter Ausgabe, S. 263.: 'Auch bekenne ich wahrhaftig, daß ich noch zur Zeit den geringsten Nutzen in Verbesserung der Metalle damit nicht gehabt.'" - Einband leicht fleckig; Besitzervermerk im Innendeckel mit entferntem ExLibris; Bibliografische Vermerke mit Bleistift im Vorsatz; wenige Seiten leicht braunfleckig, sonst ein gutes Expl.

SANSON, N and JAILLOT, A.H.
Estates de Pologne Subdivisses suinant l'Estendue des PalatinatsLarge scale map of Poland and Lithuania, including the surrounding bordering regions of Hungary, Austria and Russia. Rivers, lakes, forest, mountains and major cities and towns are depicted. A decorative title cartouche is at the top left corner, and a cartouche with a distance key is shown at the top right corner. Very brilliant original coloring.Born in Avignon, Alexis-Hubert Jaillot came to Paris in 1657 with his brother Simon, and both became sculptors.  In 1664, Jaillot married the daughter of Nicolas Berey, an established mapmaker, and soon joined his father-in-law in the trade.  Within a few years, Jaillot became the successor to Nicolas Sanson, the greatest French mapmaker of the seventeenth century. In 1669,  Jaillot undertook the re-engraving, enlarging and re-publishing of the Sanson maps in sheet form and in atlases, sparing no effort to fill the gap in the map trade left by the destruction of Blaeu's printing establishment in Amsterdam in 1672-one of the most productive cartographic establishment in the Netherlands.  Jaillot redrew Sanson's maps with many additions and corrections and fresh embellishments. Jaillot's maps are considered to be among the most decorative ever done.  They are justly famed for their large size and baroque ornamentation, and do considerable justice to their maker who was the court geographer to Louis XIV.  In 1690, Pierre Mortier began to publish Sanson's and Jaillot's maps from his Amsterdam firm.SANSON, N and JAILLOT, A.H.Paris, 1690622 x 699 mmOriginal colorVery minor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Additional engraved title-page, fine double-page double-hemisphere world map, one plan, 31 plates of medals, 4 folding plates, and 329 vignettes, extra-illustrated with a fine engraved portrait of Godfrey of Boulogne, King of Jerusalem by David (one or two spots). Contemporary vellum over paste-board, manuscript title on the spine (a bit rubbed, a few small stains). Provenance: One-page manuscript 20th-century bibliography of Merian tipped-in to paste-down. First published in 8 parts, and then as a collected work in 1642. A comprehensive collection of chronicles from the beginning of the world to the first decades of the 17th-century. With magnificent engravings by Matthias Merian, who was one of the most prominent members of the leading publishing family of 17th-century Germany. He was known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his series of travel books. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland, Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry's daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing st … [Click Below for Full Description]

JENNER, Thomas
c1657. Dimensions : 100 x 100 mm. Actual map (triangular) : 75 x 74 mm. Staining and worm track to the lower part of the text, although the engraved map very good with a good plate mark. Miniature map, first published in 1643. This edition is from " A Book of the Names of all Parishes," published with text. It is suggested that this series of maps were issued to be used by the two armies during the English Civil War, and possibly the hast that this was done, would account for the number of rather quaint mistakes in the engraving of the map; for instance St. Agnes and ( Zennor ) have been transposed in each others place, St. Ives is located just above St. Agnes, and Padstow is found in the position of Hayle. Also the name of St. Michael's Mount has been engraved backwards, suggesting the engraver was copying directly onto the copper plate. The first edition is distinguished from this edition by the lack of text printed beneath the actual engraved map.

SCANNELLI, Francesco
Cesena Neri 1657. Scarce first edition of this 17th-century survey of Italian painting, and a valuable document for developing Baroque "gusto" by a cultivated amateur. Scannelli follows Mancini’s tripartite division of Italian schools—Roman, Venetian and Lombard, and in an age in which microcosms were everywhere, he compared the whole of Italian painting to a body, likening Corregio to the brain, Titian to the heart, Raphael to the liver (!), and Veronese to the organs of reproduction. According to the Dictionary of Art, Il Microcosmo "stands alongside the works of Mario Boschini (La carta del navegar pittoresco, Venice, 1660) and of Luigi Pellegrino Scaramuccia (Le finezze dei penelli italiani, Padua, 1674), both of whom quoted him. Scannelli’s treatise represents a reaction against the notion, formulated by Giorgio Vasari, that the art of Florence was pre-eminent throughout Italy. He reevaluated the Lombard-Emilian school, led by Correggio, seeing in it an ideal synthesis of the finest achievements of the Venetian (Titian) and of the Roman-Tuscan (Raphael) schools. In taste, he showed classicist inclinations, modified by a liking for vivacity and naturalism, qualities well represented in the art of his ideal painter, Correggio" (Franco Bernabei, DA XXVIII.33-34). Little is known about the author, save that he was a priest and a physician, that he served at the court of Mantua until Francesco I d’Este died, and that he traveled to Milan, Rome and Venice. * Besterman, Old Art Books, p. 93; Schlosser-Magnino p. 614 (rather harsh elsewhere); Cicognara 204; Hollis BAL 6360 (sp … [Click Below for Full Description]
