Extremely scarce first edition of Leclerc's important work on binocular vision in which he finds that one of the eyes has a dominant status, thus announcing the discovery of the "Master-eye" - a discovery of outmost importance in the theory of shooting and elsewhere. With use of diagrams he shows that "things that can be seen clearly are seen with but one single eye.". He records and depicts a large series of experiments with binocular vision and shows geometrically the relation to the science of perspective, and points out the importance of understanding the physiology of binocular vision for perspective painting in general.Sebastien Leclerc was originally an engraver who studied physics and geometry in relation to perspective theory, a field of which he became famous. In 1672 he was appointed to "l'Academie de Peinture" as professor in perspective. He was also engraver to Louis XIV and was appointed professor at "l'Ecole des Gobelins"

Alle u-partiske oc sandheds elskende til underretning. Lübeck, 1679. 4:o. (2),+ 67 s. Lätt lagerfläckig, liten fläck s. 12, mindre reva s. 27 och ett litet hål i marginalen s. 51-52. Fint nära samtida skinnband av spegeltyp, rikt guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind, blindpressade pärmar med guldram, marmorerade snitt. Litet maskhål på främre pärmens nedre hörn. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 1517. Thesaurus 632. Warmholtz 5055, not. De tre danska adelsmännen Knud, Holger och Tage Thott flydde våren 1678 till Danmark efter anklagelser om att ha hjälpt snapphanarna. I april samma år avrättades de i Malmö "in effigie", d.v.s. dockor föreställande dem blev symboliskt halshuggna och fick huvudena uppsatta på pålar. Holger Thotts slott Sövdeborg överlämnades till Jörgen Sperling. Efter krigsslutet fick de dock återkomma och Holger återfick slottet. Den svenske vicegeneralguvernören i Malmö Jörgen Sperling var en hårdför snapphanejägare och ökänd bl.a. för sitt försök att komma över Krageholms slott genom att efter en summarisk rättegång och dom 1678 låta avrätta dess ägare Jörgen Krabbe. Krabbe var dessutom svåger till Thottarna. Oluf Rosencrantz (1623-85) var geheimråd och författare samt ihärdig försvarare av den danska adelns rättigheter. Han angrep även domen mot Jörgen Krabbe i skriften "En sandfærdig repliqve imod den falske deduction...", även den utkommen 1678. Han angrep dock inte bara den svenska staten utan försvarar i andra verk den danska adeln även mot det danska enväldets övergrepp

        Précis des Oeuvres mathématiques de Fermat et de l'Arithmétique de Diophante.Toulouse: Douladoure, 1853. First edition, offprint issue.

      A separately paginated offprint from the Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences de Toulouse, Tom. III. Brassinne begins (pp. 11-46) with a summary of the contents of Fermat's Varia Opera published by his son Samuel in 1679. This is followed (pp. 47-131) with a summary of the six books of Diophantus' Arithmetica, together with the comments Fermat added in the margins of his copy of the 1621 edition of that work (one of which was Fermat's 'last theorem'). The remainder of the work reprints Fermat's correspondence with Mersenne, Pascal, Roberval and others. In view of the relative inaccessibility of the original works, for many 19th century mathematicians and historians this was the most accessible source for understanding Fermat's work before the publication of his Oeuvres (1891-1912).. 8vo: 220 x 140 mm. Contemporary plain wrappers (chipped at edges). 164 pp. and 2 folded engraved plates
