Goldsmith 14941.RARE FIRST EDITION of the earliest published biography in English of the Scottish economist John Law. The dedication is to William Davidson of Muirhead. The son of a prosperous banker John Law [1671-1729] devoted his entire life to making proposals for the establishment of banks, both in Scotland and on the Continent, convinced as he was that the key to economic prosperity lay in augmenting the base of metallic currencies with paper money, particularly paper money backed by land holdings. He was appointed Controller General of Finances in France by the regent Philippe dOrleans in 1716 and the became the architect of the Mississippi Bubble. Law was dismissed from his post in 1720.His principal theories on money and banking, giving a detailed account of his plan to replace specie with paper currency based on land and of his proposals for a state bank were published in his Money and trade considered, published anonymously in Edinburgh in 1705. Law is described by Schumpeter as "in the front rank of monetary theorists of all times". Antoin Murphy writes "Money and trade in particular is a seminal work....In it Law discussed not only the money/inflation issue, but, more significantly, the money/output issue. He was contending that money was linked, not just to the price level, but also to output ? or trade, as it was then called. Law wanted to show that an expansion of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bernier, F[rançois]
London: Moses Pitt, 1671. 2 volumes in 1, 12mo, pp. 258, 176, 102; 1 fold-out map; modern brown buckram, gilt lettering on spine, some shelf wear; worming in margins, tape repair to title page verso. Title page of volume II reads "Particular Events; or the most considerable passages after the war of five years, or thereabouts, in the Empire of the Great Mogol". "A more curious and entertaining work than Bernier's Travels can hardly be imagined; the lively style of the author, combined with his intelligence, and the extraordinary nature of the scenes he witnessed render his work altogether more like a glowing romance than a detail of real events" (Lownes). "Bernier, a French physician, was one of those travellers like della Valle who was lured abroad for the sake of gratifying curiosity. Of much learning, especially in the philosophy of Gassendi, whose opinions and discoveries he inherited, capable of penetrating to the ultimate causes of an event, he proved to be a political and social historian of the first magnitude His work is particularly valuable for its record of the struggle of the four sons of Shah Jahan to secure the throne, which finally fell to the fourth, Aurangzib. At the court of the Mogul, with whom he was a favorite, he spent twelve years. He notes in detail the weakness inherent in the Mogul system of inheritance... the rapacity of the governors; the corruption of its military leaders; and the rottenness of the land system, together with the miserable state of the lower classes" (Cox I, p. 274, quoting Oaten's Early Travellers and Travel in India).

LOWER, RICHARD
Amstelodami: Apud Danielem Elsevirium, 1671. Third Edition. One of the most prominent English physiologists of his day, Lower (in Norman's words) "made the next great advance after Harvey in the physiology of blood circulation when he determined experimentally, with the assistance of Robert Hooke, that venous blood is changed to arterial blood in the lungs by virtue of its contact with air. The experiments leading to this discovery are reported in the third chapter of Lower's 'De Corde,' a work that also contains a number of other important observations, such as the scroll-like structure of the cardiac muscle (confirmed 250 years later by Mall), the heart's contractive and expulsive movements, the tamponade effect of pericardial effusion, and the limiting effect of pericardial adhesions on the heart." The fourth chapter here gives details of blood transfusions Lower (1631-91) made between dogs in February of 1665 and between humans in November of 1667, among the very first such operations to be performed. An edition appeared in London in 1669, and that "is usually considered to be the first." (Heirs of Hippocrates) All early editions are in Latin, and while none of them can be said to be extremely rare, it is difficult to imagine a contemporary copy in better condition than the present one.. 165 x 98 mm. (6 1/2 x 3 7/8"). 8 p.l., 237, [1] pp. (without final blank). Third Edition.

BOTERO Giovanni
- Perli Bertani, in Venetia 1671, in-4 (16x22,8cm), (8) 747pp. (36), relié. - Nouvelle édition, après l'originale parue en 1591 et 1593. Illustrée de 4 cartes dépliantes de Gioseppe Rosatio, l'Europe, l'Asie, l'Amérique et l'Afrique, sur fond grisé. L'oeuvre connut de nombreuses réeditions au XVIIe. Reliure en plein vélin souple d'époque. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre à la plume noire. La géographie universelle de Botero est un moyen d'évaluer la puissance réelle de tous les états. Botero écrit ses Relazioni dans la foulée de son grand oeuvre politique De la raison d'état et ne peut être comprise que dans son sillage. Si l'ouvrage est une géographie universelle classique, avec une description de toutes les régions du monde connues alors dans la première partie, les autres parties décrivent le monde cette fois du point de vue politique et religieux, privilégiant la place de l'évangélisme catholique dans le monde. Le livre était à l'origine une demande du cardinal Borroméo sur l'état de la religion chrétienne dans le monde. Les Relazioni sont donc la transmission d'une vision géopolitique du monde, mais placée sous l'angle de la Contre-Réforme. Botero tente de joindre l'espace géographique et l'espace politique, fournissant au catholicisme et à la contre Réforme sa future expansion. De nombreux géographes modernes firent de l'oeuvre la charte de naissance de la géographie moderne par l'utilisation des méthodes employées par Botero, même si le livre offre une triple vision du monde (géographique, politique et religieuse)et non unilatéralement géographique.

CHÂTELET, Émilie, Marquise Du.
A fine copy of "the first new theoretical physics book to appear in France since 1671. [Du Chatelet] was troubled, as were most French scientists, by the lack of a physical explanation for Newton's mathematical physics, and various metaphysical concepts are introduced. The allegorical frontispiece shows muses of the sciences at the bottom and a female figure climbing to a naked figure, perhaps representing Truth. The figures at the top probably represent Descartes, Newton, and Leibniz." (Ronald Smeltzer, <i>Extraordinary Women in Science & Medicine</i>, no. 7).. 8vo (191 x 124 mm), contemporary French calf, fully complete with engraved frontispiece, pp. [8], 450, [28] and 11 engraved folding plates

CHEVANES, Jacques de.
Lyons: Jean Molin, 1671. Quarto (220 x 160 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments, red and brown sprinkled edges. Binding rubbed and scuffed, with small leather loss at foot of front joint, title page marked from over-enthusiastic edge-sprinkling, occasional minor staining elsewhere, a very good copy. Woodcut vignette on title, woodcut initials, and head- and tailpieces. First edition, a reply to Gabriel Naudé's sceptical Apologie pour tous les grands personnages, qui ont été faussement soupçonnés de magie, recently republished in 1669. Jacques de Chevanes (c.1608-1678) of Autun had personal experience of a witch-hunt in Burgundy in 1648/9, and he includes extracts from a 1670 interview with a woman accused of sorcery and witchcraft. Addressed to the parlement of Dijon, the book is written largely from a legalistic point of view, though with lengthy digressions, for example on astrology. Lynn Thorndike suggests that its title was a deliberate echo of the English anti-sceptical work On Credulity and Incredulity in Things Natural, Civil and Divine (1668) by Méric Casaubon. The book walks a middle way between scepticism and credulity: Chevanes argues that sorcerers are few in number and that their redemption and regeneration is both possible and preferable to their judicial execution.

MORLAND (Samuel):
London, Printed by W. Godbid, and are to be Sold by M. Pitt..., 1671. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 295 x 200 mms., pp. [ii], 14, with five illustrations of trumpets and acoustical phenomena on the verso of the title-page, and pages 2, 6, 8, and 10, title-page and page 12 printed in red and black, late 18th century calf spine, marbled boards (slightly worn); without the portrait found in some copies, small paper flaw in C2, very slight browning of margins with a few very minor abrasions. From the Macclesfield Library, with the armorial bookplate date 1860 on the front paste-down end-paper and the small Macclesfield crest in blind on the first two leaves. Sir Samuel Morland (1625 - 1695) was interested in mathematics, natural philosophy, and languages from an early age and was a fellow of Magdalene College, Cambridge. One of his students was Samuel Pepys, who recorded his presence at a dinner in 1660 when no one "did give him any respect, he being looked upon by...all men as a knave." Later in 1668, when Pepys was invited to see the calculating machine that Morland had invented, he observed that the invention was "very pretty, but not very useful." Of this particular invention, Alan Marshall in the Oxford DNB says "Early work on a speaking trumpet, said to be Morland's own invention, culminated in the 1670s with his experiments in St James's Park before Charles II and a number of courtiers. With the king's encouragement various types of trumpet were manufactured and used, the three largest being sent off to Deal Castle for trials there. The navy was also given orders for … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fint stänkdekorerat pappbd från 1700-talets slut med nött rosa titeletikett i papp. Stänkta snitt. Sista sidan förstärkt i yttermarginalen. Ett äldre försättsblad med gamla anteckningar, sannolikt av Warmholtz, medbundet. Bring Itineraria Svecana 55. Schiötz Itineraria Norvegica 563a***. Fiske Icelandic collection s. 335, då verket rör Island på s. 161-79. Vare sig Bring eller Schiötz har uppmärksammat hoppet i pagineringen, dock rättar den senare uppgiften i sitt supplement. Som vanligt saknas det grav. porträttet av författaren, vilket i enstaka fall återfinns på baksidan av "extraict du privilege du roy". Detta är den första upplagan av la Martinières reseskildring. Författaren var en fransk läkare, sannolikt född i Rouen, och den förste fransman, som publicerat en sjöresa längs norra Europas kust. Han befann sig i Köpenhamn, då det dansk-norska handelskompaniet beslöt sig för att skicka tre fartyg till kusterna längst upp i norr för att inhämta upplysningar om eventuella affärsmöjligheter. Under denna färd, som tog sin början i februari 1653, besökte författaren även Bohuslän, men vad han skriver om detta landskap är mycket obetydligt. Han kan även möjligen ha besökt svenska lappmarken.

Prayer books, unlike books of prayers, contain the words of structured services of worship.

BAUHIN, C.
synonymiis & differentiis methodice secundum genera & species proponens. Basileae, Joannis Regis, 1671. 4to (242 x 185mm). pp. (24), 518, (22), with woodcut printer's mark on title (bound up with:) IDEM. Prodromus Theatri Botanici in quo plantae supra sexcentae ab ipso primum descriptae cum plurimis figuris proponuntur. Editio altera emendatior. Basileae, impensis Ioannis Regis, 1671. 4to. pp. (4), 160, (12), with woodcut printer's mark on title and 138 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary vellum. Second and enlarged edition of these two great botanical works. Bauhin's 'Pinax' and 'Prodromus' ushered in a new era for botany, establishing it as a science in its own right, distinct from its herbal/medical affiliations. "The progress of botanical science... reaches its highest point in the labours of Gaspard Bauhin, as regards both the naming and describing of the individual plants and their classification according to likeness of habit... The descriptions of species in the 'Prodromus'... notice all obvious parts of the plants with all possible brevity and in fixed order...; the description of a single species is here in fact developed into an art and becomes a diagnoses. A still higher value must be set on the fact, that in Gaspard Bauhin the distinction between species and genus is fully and consciously carried out; every plant has with him a generic and specific name, and this binary nomenclature which Linnaeus is usually thought to have founded, is almost perfectly maintained by Bauhin, especially in the 'Pinax'" (Sachs p. 33). Some foxing as usual. Stafleu & Cowan 367 & 366 … [Click Below for Full Description]

OGILBY, J./ MONTANUS, A
Amsterdam, 1671. No Binding. Near Fine. 11 3/8 x 13 7/8 inche. Fine hand color; old manuscript additions to title, excellent condition. Attractively colored example of this edition of Capt. John Smith's landmark map, based on the first survey of the Chesapeake Bay. Curiously, the map is illustrated with images of a llama, goat, and unicorn, which were evidently considered by Europeans to be native to Virginia. In early ink, Maryland ("Terre-Mariae") was added to the title. Although the map itself is based on the Blaeu-Hondius engraving of the Smith map, all three cartouches on Ogilby-Montanus were newly added. Tooley, America, Derivative 8, pp. 168-69; Stephenson & McKee, Map I-6, pp. 30-1.
