        De religione Mohammedica libri duo. Editio altera auctior.Utrecht, Willem Broedelet, 1717. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece with an Ottoman court scene, and 4 engraved folding plates. Most of the engravings are signed or initialled in the plate by the artist Jan Goeree. 19th-century mottled half calf.

      Steenbrink, Dutch colonialism and Indonesian Islam, pp. 55-56. Second (enlarged) edition and first illustrated edition of the most detailed and most objective account of Islam published in Europe to this time, written by Adriaan Reland (1676-1718), professor of Oriental languages at Utrecht University, and first published (also by Broedelet at Utrecht) in 1705. It corrected many errors of the earlier writers on the subject, who often saw Islam only as an enemy of Christianity. The engravings were newly made for this edition, most of them signed or initialled by the artist Jan Goeree (1670-1731), the 1705 edition having only an engraved device (differing from the present one) on the title-page. The view of the great mosque at Mecca gave Europeans their first accurate view of that monument to Islam. Reland also expanded the text for this edition.The plates show a family tree, an illustration of Muslims praying, a view of the Byzantine temple of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople (Istanbul), which had been converted into a mosque (and now appears with all four minarets), and a view of the great mosque in Mecca (this last 28 x 53.5 cm, not including caption).With a couple small tears in the largest folding plate, not affecting the pictorial image, and occasional small stains and minor foxing, but still in very good condition. The best early European account of the religion of Islam.

Many parts printed to facing pages. Some soiling, especially to titles and edges; outer bifolium of Violino Principale part reinforced with tape and frayed at spine with additional repairs; some leaves separating. . First Edition. WorldCat (three copies only, at the British Library; tje Koninklijke bibliotheek in The Hague; and the Sächsische Landesbibliothek in Dresden). "[An] Italian violinist and composer... Polledro's playing was praised for its technical facility, especially in double stops and jumps across the fingerboard. His compositions were considered of only moderate interest even by his contemporaries; but they are elegant and exemplify the technical advances leading from Pugnani to Paganini." Boris Schwarz and Emanuele Senici in Grove Music Online. He was "acclaimed in Germany as the best violinist since Viotti. In 1812 he performed with Beethoven in Karlsbad. In 1814 he became leader of the Dresden court orchestra, with a salary equal to that of Weber, the conductor." Oxford Music Online. The strong percussion section is notable. "Tamburo" most probably stands for "bass drum"; the part doubles that of Piatti.

Original Hardcover (full leather with five raised bands and the original spinelabel). The binding with stronger signs of wear but firm and original. Interior in very good condition with only very mild signs of foxing. Very rare contemporary binding of Thomas North's Plutarch. Sir Thomas North (1535?-1604) was an English justice of the peace, military officer and translator. His translation into English of Plutarch's Parallel Lives is notable for being a source text used by William Shakespeare for several of his plays. The first edition of his translation of Plutarch, from the French of Jacques Amyot, appeared in 1579. The first edition was dedicated to Queen Elizabeth, and was followed by another edition in 1595, containing fresh Lives. A third edition of his Plutarch was published, in 1603, with more translated Parallel Lives, and a supplement of other translated biographies. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica Eleventh Edition, "[i]t is almost impossible to overestimate the influence of North's vigorous English on contemporary writers, and some critics have called him the first master of English prose." The Lives translation formed the source from which Shakespeare drew the materials for his Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra. It is in the last-named play that he follows the Lives most closely, whole speeches being taken directly from North.

        Recherches sur les courbes a double courbure.Paris: Nyon, Didot and Quillau, 1731. First edition.

      Fine large-paper copy of this celebrated treatise, "the first treatise on solid analytic geometry" (Boyer), written when the author was only sixteen. In it Clairaut demonstrates a claim made by Newton that all cubic curves in three dimensions are projections of a cubic curve of a special form. This publication led to Clairaut's election to the Académie des Sciences at the age of eighteen, the rules of admission being suspended to accommodate the mathematical prodigy.<br/><br/> "Alexis Claude Clairaut was one of the most precocious of mathematicians, outdoing even Blaise Pascal in this respect. At the age of ten he was reading the textbooks of L'Hospital on conics and the calculus, when he was thirteen he read a paper on geometry to the Académie des Sciences ... In the year of his election Clairaut published a celebrated treatise, <i>Recherches sur les courbes a double courbure</i>, the substance of which had been presented to the Académie two years earlier ... The treatise of Clairaut carried out for space curves the program that Descartes had suggested almost a century before - their study through projections on two coordinate planes. It was, in fact, this method that suggested the name given by Clairaut to gauche or twisted curves inasmuch as their curvature is determined by the curvatures of the two projections. In the <i>Recherches</i> numerous space curves are determined through intersections of various surfaces, distance formulas for two and three dimensions are given, an intercept form of the plane is included, and tangent lines to space curves are found. This book by the teenage Clairaut constitutes the first treatise on solid analytic geometry" (Boyer, <i>History of mathematics</i>, p. 494). <br/><br/> Isaac Newton was the first to investigate systematically third-order or cubic curves. His work on the subject, <i>Enumeratio linearum tertii ordinis</i>, was completed in 1676 but not published until 1704 (as an appendix to his <i>Opticks</i>). In it he claimed that all cubic curves could be obtained from those of the form <i>y<sup>2</sup> = ax<sup>3</sup> + bx<sup>2</sup> + cx + d</i> by projecting between planes. In the present work Clairaut published a proof of Newton's assertion. Geometrically, Clairaut thought of a space curve as the intersection of two surfaces; and analytically the equation of each surface was expressed as an equation in three variables. Clairaut established Newton's claim by proving that every cubic curve is the intersection of a plane and a cubic cone defined by the equation zy<sup>2</sup> = ax<sup>3</sup> +bx<sup>2</sup>z + cxz<sup>2</sup> + dz<sup>3</sup>. <br/><br/> "In his 1731 work ... Clairaut studied tangents to curves of double curvature. He saw that a space curve can have an infinity of normals located in a plane perpendicular to the tangent. The expressions for the arc length of a space curve and the quadrature of certain areas on surfaces are also due to him" (Kline, <i>Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times</i>, p. 557). <br/><br/> Parkinson p. 149.. 4to (257 x 194 mm), pp. [8], 119, [3], with six folding engraved plates, a beutiful copy on thick paper in fine French polished calf, entirely untouched, book plate and blind stamp of the Macclesfield library.

        Livre Nouveau de Toutes Sortes d'Ouvarges D'Orfevries

      1676. [MONCORNET, Balthazar]. Livre Nouveau de toutes sortes d'ouvrages d'Orfeuries receuillies des meilleurs ouvrieres de ce temps et se vendent chez Jean Moncornet. / Ein Newes Büchlein Von allerhant Goldtschmiderey... Illustrated with an engraved title-page followed by 11 engraved plates measuring 186 x 137 each mounted on stubs. Small 4to., bound in modern brown morocco in the style of a French eighteenth-century binding. [Paris]: Jean Moncornet, rue St. Jacques, [1679-95]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| An aesthetic, rare suite of early Rococo engravings depicting jewelry designs by the engraver Balthazar Moncornet (1600-1668) executed in the time of Louis XIV. The suite features bejeweled earrings, necklaces and broaches intertwined with floral borders made of cornucopias, wreaths, birds, swirling ribbons and other ornamental elements. Each design appears floating above engraved landscapes and cityscapes depicting Rome, Paris, Notre Dame, Saint Denis, and the gardens of the Château de Rueil. The final engraving features a portrait of Louis XIV within a jeweled frame, surrounded by a wreath over a view of Pont Neuf. A work of such unique charm that Bernard Quaritch saw fit to make facsimile edition published in 1888! The introduction to the facsimile describes the work as "An undescribed and apparently unknown series of 12 plates..." Bernard Moncornet came from a long line of Flemish artisans including his father, Pierre Moncornet, who moved the family to Paris at the request of Henry IV to work at the famed Gobelins tapestry manufacturer. He would later become a successful printer and engraver, as would his son Balthazar. The present work, which features Balthazar's designs, was published by his son, Jean Moncornet (1644-1716) who ran a print making shop on the rue St. Jacques from 1676 until its bankruptcy in 1695 (thus we assign the date). The publication history of this suite is complex. Berlin Katalog makes mention of a suite by Francois Lefebure and Balthazar Moncornet entitled Livre de Feuilles et de Fleurs Utile aux Orfeures... published in Paris in 1661 and reproduces plate 5 which appears in our copy (one might assume the rest of the plates are the same as well). It also notes that the first edition of this series was published in 1657. Guilmard lists the present title with the date 1665 and without mention of Jean Moncornet on the title-page. The Quaritch edition replicates our edition, erroneously noting that it is the first. In any case, no copies of the title mentioned in the Berlin Katalog are found on OCLC or at auction. One copy of the 1665 edition appears at Harvard. No copies of the present edition appear on ABPC. OCLC locates a copy at the NYPL, which we examined and found to have the title-page and three other engravings provided in facsimile. Very rare thus. Although trimmed and mounted the images are not effected and impressions are sharp. Guilmard, pg 54 No. 71. Berlin Katalog 818, 819.

        An Abstract of a Letter from Mr. Anthony Leewenhoeck at Delft, Dated Sep. 17. 1683. Containing Some Microscopical Observations, about Animals in the Scurf of the Teeth, the Substance Call'd Worms in the Nose, the Cuticula Consisting of Scales" in Philosophical Transactions, Volume 14, 1684 pp. 568-574 WITH "An Abstract of a Letter from Mr. Anthony Leeuwenhoeck of Delft about Generation by an Animalcule of the Male Seed. Animals in the Seed of a Frog. Some Other Observables in the Parts of a Frog. Digestion, and the Motion of the Blood in a Feavor" Philosophical Transactions, Volume 13, 1683 pp. 347-355

      - SEMINAL FIRST EDITIONS OF THE FIRST DEFINITIVE EVIDENCE, FIRST DESCRIPTION, & FIRST ILLUSTRATION OF THE DISCOVERY OF BACTERIA. 3 volumes bound as one, also including Leewenhoek's paper announcing the discovery of, first description of, and first illustrations of parasitic flagellites. Anton van Leeuwenhoek owned a dry goods shop in Delft, Holland. He was a draper, a haberdasher, a surveyor, and the official wine taster of the town of Delft - and in his spare time, he liked to grind glass into fine lenses. Though crude, Leeuwenhoek could magnify objects about 200 times beyond what the eye can see. With his lenses, he set about observing everything he could think of: "hair fibers, plant structures, crystals, an insect's eye, and a variety of fluids including blood, and even scrapings from his own teeth" (Sharma, The Fungi, 336). In 1676, Leeuwenhoek discovered very small microbes that he termed 'animalcules'. For a number of years, Leeuwenhoek had been sharing his research in the form of letters written to and then published in The Royal Society's journal The Philosophical Transactions. The first of the two offerings is a seminal paper written in 1683 and published in 1684 titled "Containing Some Microscopical Observations?". IIn this paper, Leeuwenhoek examined scrapings from his teeth, noticing that there were small, individual cells that were moving. As well, Leeuwenhoek drew what he saw (and these appear in the first paper) - he "sketched the rod, sphere, and spiral forms of bacteria and their movement. It was the first description of bacteria" (ibid). Leeuwenhoek's drawing clearly depicts the rods and indicates the pathway of their motion; he also illustrates bacteria in spherical forms, 'longer' types, spiral forms, and as 'clusters of spheres'. "Bacteria were Leeuwenhoek's most remarkable microscopic discovery. They were just at the limit of what his simple lenses could make out and, in one of the most striking hiatuses in the history of science, no one else would see them again for over a century. Only then were his by-then-largely-forgotten observations of bacteria- as opposed to his famous 'animalcules' (spermatozoa) - taken seriously" (Wikipedia). In the second offering, "Generation by an Animalcule of the Male Seed?", Leeuwenhoek penned his second letter on spermatozoa (the first in 1676); as well, the work marks the discovery and first description of parasitic flagellites - essentially parasites, with the word 'flagella' describing the construction of the cell or organism as well as its means of motions. Though Leeuwenhoek did not name what he saw, again, he illustrated it with drawings. Leeuwenhoek was a haberdasher and a draper who is now also known as "the Father of Microbiology" (Wikipedia). CONDITION & DETAILS: Three volumes bound as one. Philosophical Transactions Volume XII-XIV for the Years 1683-1684. Oxford: St. Pauls Church-yard, London.

      Genf, Joh. Hermann Widerhold, 1676. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ökonomischen Klassikers. Die erste französische Ausgabe des bedeutenden Werks des französischen Handelsschriftstellers Savary (1622-1690) erschien im Vorjahr und ist nach Eduard Weber nicht bekannt geworden. "Die 'Geburtsstunde' der Betriebswirtschaft in der verschollenen . Ausgabe. Die vorliegende Ausgabe wurde grundlegend für die Geschichte der Betriebswirtschaftslehre (Handelsbetriebslehre) und enthält im Anhang die 'Ordonnantz von Ludwig dem XIV.' ('Code Savary' genannt): Die erste Kodifikation des Handelsrechts" (Sauer 48). Der 'Parfait Negociant' (französischer Orig.-Titel) ist nicht nur eine erste Pionierleistung, mit der die Zeit des Merkantilismus beginnt, sondern auch ohne Zweifel die beste unter einer ganzen Reihe von Schriften, die teils in dieser Phase, teils aber auch später erschienen und durchweg von Savary beeinflusst sind. Quasi als Kommentar zum 'Code Savary' wurde es aber vor allem wirtschaftlicher Ratgeber und Unterrichtsbuch für die tägliche Handelspraxis. Savarys Verdienst liegt vor allem in der Gründlichkeit und großen Sachlichkeit seiner Darstellung. Kein anderer betriebswirtschaftlicher Titel übte einen ähnlich großen Einfluss aus. Nicht nur in der französischen oder deutschen, sondern auch in der englischen und holländischen Wirtschaftsliteratur wurde 'Le parfait negociant' bis ins19. Jh. hinein ausgiebig als Quelle genutzt. Paul Jacob Marperger, zu Lebzeiten Savarys der bedeutendste deutsche Vertreter des Merkantilismus, hat in seinen zahlreichen Schriften viel aus dem 'Parfait Negociant' übernommen, und nicht selten waren die von dem Franzosen beeinflussten Kapitel seine besten (E. Sundhoff). "Savary gibt eine Lehre der praktischen Handelskunst. Leitprinzip des Werkes ist, zu zeigen, wie der redliche Kaufmann auf die Dauer den größten Gewinn erzielen kann, womit der Verfasser zur Hebung der Wirtschaft seines Landes beitragen wollte. Das Buch ist dadurch dem Geist des Merkantilismus verbunden. In seiner praktischen Brauchbarkeit übertrifft es alle ähnlichen der Zeit ."

      Genf, Joh. Hermann Widerhold, 1676.. . Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ökonomischen Klassikers. Die erste französische Ausgabe des bedeutenden Werks des französischen Handelsschriftstellers Savary (1622-1690) erschien im Vorjahr und ist nach Eduard Weber nicht bekannt geworden. "Die 'Geburtsstunde' der Betriebswirtschaft in der verschollenen ... Ausgabe. Die vorliegende Ausgabe wurde grundlegend für die Geschichte der Betriebswirtschaftslehre (Handelsbetriebslehre) und enthält im Anhang die 'Ordonnantz von Ludwig dem XIV.' ('Code Savary' genannt): Die erste Kodifikation des Handelsrechts" (Sauer 48). Der 'Parfait Negociant' (französischer Orig.-Titel) ist nicht nur eine erste Pionierleistung, mit der die Zeit des Merkantilismus beginnt, sondern auch ohne Zweifel die beste unter einer ganzen Reihe von Schriften, die teils in dieser Phase, teils aber auch später erschienen und durchweg von Savary beeinflusst sind. Quasi als Kommentar zum 'Code Savary' wurde es aber vor allem wirtschaftlicher Ratgeber und Unterrichtsbuch für die tägliche Handelspraxis. Savarys Verdienst liegt vor allem in der Gründlichkeit und großen Sachlichkeit seiner Darstellung. Kein anderer betriebswirtschaftlicher Titel übte einen ähnlich großen Einfluss aus. Nicht nur in der französischen oder deutschen, sondern auch in der englischen und holländischen Wirtschaftsliteratur wurde 'Le parfait negociant' bis ins19. Jh. hinein ausgiebig als Quelle genutzt. Paul Jacob Marperger, zu Lebzeiten Savarys der bedeutendste deutsche Vertreter des Merkantilismus, hat in seinen zahlreichen Schriften viel aus dem 'Parfait Negociant' übernommen, und nicht selten waren die von dem Franzosen beeinflussten Kapitel seine besten (E. Sundhoff). "Savary gibt eine Lehre der praktischen Handelskunst. Leitprinzip des Werkes ist, zu zeigen, wie der redliche Kaufmann auf die Dauer den größten Gewinn erzielen kann, womit der Verfasser zur Hebung der Wirtschaft seines Landes beitragen wollte. Das Buch ist dadurch dem Geist des Merkantilismus verbunden. In seiner praktischen Brauchbarkeit übertrifft es alle ähnlichen der Zeit .."

        ARXIERATIKON. Liber pontificalis Ecclesiae Graecae. Edited by Isaac Habert

      Paris: 1676 (printed by Pierre Blaise in 1643). Folio (368 x 239 mm). [32], 749 [recte 753], [11] pp. Title printed in red & black with large woodcut printer?'s device. Text in two columns in Greek and Latin, commentary in single column. Woodcut initials throughout. Quires Eee-Ggg (pp. 597-632) misbound between quires Rr and Ss; light crease mark in some lower corners, faint marginal dampstaining at end. Contemporary French calf, spine gold-tooled, edges stained red (scuffed, edges rubbed, upper joint starting). Provenance: François Blouet de Camilly, with his armorial bookplate as bishop and inscription on the title; from the Macclesfield library (blindstamp on title and armorial bookplate, paper shelfmark labels on spine).*** A fine copy of the first printed Greek Orthodox pontifical. This is the second issue, with a new title added to the sheets of the 1643 edition. The Archieratikon is the book of Orthodox Catholic rites for service conducted by bishops (the Hieratikon was for priests). The extensive commentary was the work of the theologian and anti-Jansenist polemicist Isaac Habert (ca. 1600-1668), doctor of the theological faculty of the Sorbonne, prédicateur ordinaire du Roi, and, after 1645, Bishop of Vabres. This monumental work of erudition, ?"the results of his readings in the manuscript euchologies [prayer books] of the Bibliothèque Royale ... ensured him fame [and] is an essential source for the history of Greek liturgy?" (Scholasticon, online biographical dictionary of early modern European and American professors of theology and philosophy). Habert dedicated the work to Chancellor Séguier, one of France?'s greatest book collectors, whose collection of Greek manuscripts was unparalleled. The printer Pierre Blaise was the son of Séguier?'s librarian. This new issue was sponsored by the powerful publisher-bookseller Louis Billaine, libraire for the Benedictines, whose houses, especially at Saint-Maur and Saint Germain, were major centers of critical theological scholarship during the 17th and 18th centuries. The present copy belonged indeed to a bishop, though not of the Orthodox persuasion: François Blouet de Camilly (1664-1723), was Bishop and Comte de Toul, and later served briefly as archbishop of Tours from 1721 to 1723. His substantial library was dispersed at auction in 1726.
