BOSE (Johann Andreas).
Jenae, J. Bielki, 1676. - in-4. 8ff. 370pp. (dont portrait gravé de l'auteur). 11ff. Vélin de l'époque. Edition Originale du principal ouvrage du philosophe et historien allemand Johann Andreas Bose (1624-1674), éditée par G. Schubart. Ce volume, qui situe Bose parmi les fondateurs de la statistique, contient ses réflexions sur la façon d'étudier les sociétés humaines où il se montre précurseur en affirmant la necessité des recherches pluridisciplinaires: économiques, politiques, religieuses, scientifiques, historiques, géographiques, etc. Nombreuses références aux grandes découvertes géographiques, notamment en Amérique. Bose occupa la chaire d'histoire à l'Université de Jena en 1654 et fut nommé recteur en 1661. Il eut pour disciples Leibnitz et Puffendorf. Certains de ses ouvrages furent mis à l'Index. Rousseurs dues à la nature du papier, quelques cernes clairs. Bon exemplaire. Manque à Brunet et à Graesse. Manque à Sabin. Sur la place de Bose parmi les précurseurs de la statistique, cf. Robert Horvath, "La France en 1618 vue par un statisticien hongrois, Márton Szepsi Csombor" in: Population, 40e année, n°2, (1985) pp.335-346. [Attributes: First Edition]

""Still in the 'hard words' tradition, Coles included thousands of 'old words,' obsolete ones from Chaucer's day. His dictionary contained twenty-five thousand words, eight thousand more than the last, augmented edition of Phillips. He shortened Phillips' already brief definitions in order to include more words and more etymological information. Coles did break new ground in including cant (thieves' argot) and dialectical terms. These, taken from other specialized dictionaries, had never before been included in a general English dictionary"" (Landau, Dictionaries, p. 43).

HUYGENS, Christiaan.
An excellent copy of Huygens' pathbreaking exposition of his wave theory of light. ❧Grolier/Horblit, One Hundred Books Famous in Science 54; Dibner, Heralds of Science 145; Evans, First Editions of Epochal Achievements in the History of Science 32; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 111.<br/><br/> Huygens had developed his theory of light in 1676 and 1677, and completed his <i>Traité de la Lumière</i> in 1678. He read portions of the treatise to the Academy during the following year but left it unpublished, until Newton's <i>Principia</i> (1687) and a visit with Newton in 1689 stimulated him to have it printed at last. "Light, according to Huygens, is an irregular series of shock waves which proceeds with very great, but finite, velocity through the ether. This ether consists of uniformly minute, elastic particles compressed very close together. Light, therefore, is not an actual transference of matter but rather of a 'tendency to move', a serial displacement similar to a collision which proceeds through a row of balls ... Huygens therefore concluded that new wave fronts originate around each particle that is touched by light and extend outward from the particle in the form of hemispheres..." (DSB). Huygens was able to explain reflection and refraction using this theory, of which he became completely convinced in August 6, 1677, when he found that it explained the double refraction in Iceland spar. His view of light was opposed to the corpuscular theory of light advanced by Newton. <br/><br/> In the second part of the work, the <i>Discours de la cause de la pesanteur</i> … [Click Below for Full Description]
