      Chez Estienne Michallet, 1682., Paris: - 12mo. Collation: a4, A-P12, Q2. Pagination: [8], 120, 125-367[*], [1] pp. [* = 363 pages; some pages misnumbered]. Figures. Modern half brown morocco, marbled boards. Very good. RARE. FIRST PRINTED HYPOTHESIS ON THE WAVE THEORY OF LIGHT. First edition of this curious treatise on optics, sound, vision, refraction, color, and 'lumination,' incorporating Ignace Gaston Pardies' previously unpublished treatise on optics and based largely on Aristotelian principles. Divided into three parts: Contains the pt. I: On the properties of light and its movement; pt. II: Comments on vision, including correcting sight with glasses; pt. III: devoted to assisting and improving sight, magnifying glasses, theory of the telescope (p.[vi], 190, 281) and frequently refers to the microscope (pp. 99, 106-7, 180, 186-7, 190-1, 193, 198, 200, 237, 244-8, 251-2, 254, 256-7, 265-6, 280-2, 344-366, etc.). Olivier Darrigol gives an assessment of the text: It is a work in defense of Aristotle's views against neo-atomism as describe by Gassendi and Maignan. Instead their study of sound and light is based on Aristotelian principles. "Ango/Pardies introduced the notion of undulation by means of the picture of a vibrating body that induced alternating compressions and dilations of the contiguous layer of air, followed by similar periodic deformation of the next layer…" (p. 61). They also "introduced some of the main properties of waves by means of the water-wave illustration." In "the case of sound, which they regarded as paradigmatic for other undulations… They indeed pioneered the concept of sound as a compression wave." (pp. 61-2; see Ango p. 26). They rejected the sine law by Maignan [p.88] relating to refraction of undulations. With light Ango/Pardies take the position of periodic vibrating, 'every luminous body breathes' â€" also using the beating of a heart as an example. Dealing also with color theory they site Aristotle's, De sensu. They support a curious system of corresponding ratios, comparing color to musical consonance, or a "frequency of the undulations." (pp. 63-4). "The first author who explicitly and systematically constructed optics on the basis of analogy with sound and water waves was the Jesuit father Ignace Gaston Pardies, in a now lost manuscript written around 1670 and entitled "On the motion of undulations." His treatise on statics, published in 1673, contains a short description of the intent of his work: first to describe the undulation of water, "a matter of game and entertainment for children, which can be the subject of a very deep meditation for the most skilled philosophers"; and then to treat sound by analogy with these undulations, and light by analogy with sound: - In a conjecture on the propagation of light, we examine whether one could not also suppose that the vehicle of light is some similar motion in a subtler air; and we show indeed that under this hypothesis one would explain in a very natural manner all the properties of light and colors, which are otherwise very difficult to explain; and I hope my reader will enjoy the manner in which the measure of refraction is demonstrated.' â€" A younger Jesuit, Pierre Ango, inherited Pardies' manuscript and exploited it in the first book of the optical treatise he published in 1682 in Paris. In an introductory letter to this treatise, Ango emphasized the analogy with sound and Pardies' importance in this respect: 'You will see that [this first book] contains every beautiful and solid thing that can be said on the propagation and properties of light, on colors, and even on sounds, about which I write at first in order to ease the conception of what I subsequently say on light. â€" There I have used some of the thoughts of the later Father Pardies which you believe to be still novel and which are in a better shape than this Father left them in the memoirs which you know I long had in my hands.'" â€" Olivier Darrigol, A History of Optics from Greek Antiquity to the Nineteenth C [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Anatomy of Plants. With an Idea of a Philosophical History of Plants. And several other Lectures, Read before the Royal Society

      Printed by W. Rawlins, for the Author, London 1682 - Folio (318 x 193 mm). 11 ff., 304, [19] pp. With 83 engraved plates, of which 5 are double-page. Bound in contemporary English calf, rebacked, red morocco spine label (chipped with loss of 5 letters), extremities worn and partially defective; some soiling or browning internally. Plates 54-83 with stain along top margin. A good copy. Nehemiah Grew is considered to be among the founders of the science of plant anatomy. This revised collected edition represents the first textbook on the subject, containing three earlier treatises: The Anatomy of Vegetables Begun (1672), An Idea of a Phytological History Propounded (1673), and The Comparative Anatomy of Trunks (1675). Grew’s pioneering investigations into how organs and tissues are formed during plant growth led to the conception of the plant as a coordinated developing structure and marked the beginning of efforts to link structure and development. Along with Malpighi, Grew was the first to investigate internal plant anatomy: with the aid of the microscope, he demonstrated that plants have a characteristic ordered inner structure, (illustrated in his accurate and beautiful plates) and that all plant tissues could be broadly divided into "ligneous" (fibro-vascular) and "pithy" (parenchymatous) categories. He showed that the "cells" first observed by Robert Hooke made up the normal structure of the parenchyma, and came very close to recognizing the universal cellular structure of plants. He believed that a plant’s sexual organs were contained in its flowers, and recognized the stamen to be a male organ. As we learn from the DNB: "In 1682 Grew’s magnum opus, ‘The Anatomy of Plants,’ was issued. Of the four ‘books’ of this work, the first, second, and third are second editions of ‘The Anatomy begun,’ ‘The Anatomy of Roots,’ and the ‘The Anatomy of Trunks,’ extending to 49, 46, and 44 folio pages respectively, and illustrated by four, thirteen, and twenty-three plates. The fourth book, dedicated to Boyle, includes ‘The Anatomy of Leaves, Flowers, Fruits, and Seeds,’ 72 pages, with forty-two plates. Among the structural points clearly shown in these plates are the coats of the ovule and seed, the pulpy coat to that of the gooseberry, the cotyledons, plumule, and radicle of the embryo, the vascular bundles in leaf-stalks, the resin-ducts of the pine, the latex-vessels of the vine and the sumach, the folding of leaves in buds, superficial hairs and internal crystals, the structure of the minute flowers of the compositae, the stamens, or ‘attire,’ as they were then termed, and their pollen-grains. Although it is commonly attributed, on the ground of a modest remark of Grew’s, to Sir Thomas Millington, it is probable that to Grew himself belongs the credit of first observing the true existence of sex in plants. Haller styles him ‘industrius ubique naturae observator,’ and Linneaus dedicated to him the genus Grewia in Tiliaceae." "The book is best remembered for the idea, suggested to Grew by the physician Sir Thomas Millington, that the stamen, with its pollen, is the male sex organ and that the pistil corresponds to the sex organ of the female."

Copperplate etching and engraving on verge type hand laid paper. Watermark present, but not visible on every sheet. Johan / Jan / Johannes Nieuhof / Nieuhoff / Neuhof (1618-1672) was a Dutch traveler who wrote about his journeys to Brazil, China and India. The most famous of these was a trip of 2,400 km from Canton to Peking in 1655-1657, which enabled him to become an authoritative Western writer on China. Johan Nieuhof was born in Uelsen, Germany, of which his father (originally from Zwolle) was mayor. Nieuhof left for Brazil in 1640 as a reserve officer-candidate - from then on, barring two short family visits in 1658 and 1671, he spent all the rest of his life abroad.

        Antique Map-CAPE OF GOOD HOPE-SOUTH AFRICA-Nieuhof-1682

      - Map: 'Caerte van de Cabo de Bona Esperanca en haer gelegentheyt daer omtrent '. (Map of Cape of Good Hope and surroundings.) This map shows Cape of Good hope in South Africa. Inset view of the Table Mountain with ships in the bay. Also depicted are several African animal species; elephant, lion. rhinoceros, ostrich etc. Cartouche with native Africans. Compass rose, legend and ships on the ocean. This map is of particular interest for three reasons: it is the best-known early map of the Cape that shows not only the canal between Table Bay and False Bay proposed by Commissionar-General Rijckloff van Goens, but also the route of one of the early exploring expeditions (it is marked 'Rey's wech door ons volck int Land gedaen'). The canal was never constructed. Copperplate etching and engraving on verge type hand laid paper. Watermark present, but not visible on every sheet. Johan / Jan / Johannes Nieuhof / Nieuhoff / Neuhof (1618-1672) was a Dutch traveler who wrote about his journeys to Brazil, China and India. The most famous of these was a trip of 2,400 km from Canton to Peking in 1655-1657, which enabled him to become an authoritative Western writer on China. Johan Nieuhof was born in Uelsen, Germany, of which his father (originally from Zwolle) was mayor. Nieuhof left for Brazil in 1640 as a reserve officer-candidate - from then on, barring two short family visits in 1658 and 1671, he spent all the rest of his life abroad. After an adventurous career in the service of the Dutch East India Company (or VOC) - between 1660 and 1667 he occupied posts in India and on Ceylon - he then lived in Batavia until 1670. He then disappeared without trace on Madagascar, traveling in a sloop from which he had landed to seek drinking water. The engravings are made after Nieuhoff's drawings. Condition: Fine; General age related toning and light staining from handling. Two brown spots, upper left and upper right. Irregular paper edges eith small tears. Original middle fold as issued.

        The Anatomy of Plants. With an Idea of a Philosophical History of Plants. And several other Lectures, Read before the Royal Society

      London: Printed by W. Rawlins, for the Author, 1682. FIRST EDITION. Folio (318 x 193 mm). 11 ff., 304, [19] pp. With 83 engraved plates, of which 5 are double-page. Bound in contemporary English calf, rebacked, red morocco spine label (chipped with loss of 5 letters), extremities worn and partially defective; some soiling or browning internally. Plates 54-83 with stain along top margin. A good copy. Nehemiah Grew is considered to be among the founders of the science of plant anatomy. This revised collected edition represents the first textbook on the subject, containing three earlier treatises: The Anatomy of Vegetables Begun (1672), An Idea of a Phytological History Propounded (1673), and The Comparative Anatomy of Trunks (1675). GrewÂ’s pioneering investigations into how organs and tissues are formed during plant growth led to the conception of the plant as a coordinated developing structure and marked the beginning of efforts to link structure and development. Along with Malpighi, Grew was the first to investigate internal plant anatomy: with the aid of the microscope, he demonstrated that plants have a characteristic ordered inner structure, (illustrated in his accurate and beautiful plates) and that all plant tissues could be broadly divided into “ligneous” (fibro-vascular) and “pithy” (parenchymatous) categories. He showed that the “cells” first observed by Robert Hooke made up the normal structure of the parenchyma, and came very close to recognizing the universal cellular structure of plants. He believed that a plantÂ’s sexual organs were contained in its flowers, and recognized the stamen to be a male organ. As we learn from the DNB: “In 1682 GrewÂ’s magnum opus, ‘The Anatomy of Plants,Â’ was issued. Of the four ‘booksÂ’ of this work, the first, second, and third are second editions of ‘The Anatomy begun,Â’ ‘The Anatomy of Roots,Â’ and the ‘The Anatomy of Trunks,Â’ extending to 49, 46, and 44 folio pages respectively, and illustrated by four, thirteen, and twenty-three plates. The fourth book, dedicated to Boyle, includes ‘The Anatomy of Leaves, Flowers, Fruits, and Seeds,Â’ 72 pages, with forty-two plates. Among the structural points clearly shown in these plates are the coats of the ovule and seed, the pulpy coat to that of the gooseberry, the cotyledons, plumule, and radicle of the embryo, the vascular bundles in leaf-stalks, the resin-ducts of the pine, the latex-vessels of the vine and the sumach, the folding of leaves in buds, superficial hairs and internal crystals, the structure of the minute flowers of the compositae, the stamens, or ‘attire,Â’ as they were then termed, and their pollen-grains. Although it is commonly attributed, on the ground of a modest remark of GrewÂ’s, to Sir Thomas Millington, it is probable that to Grew himself belongs the credit of first observing the true existence of sex in plants. Haller styles him ‘industrius ubique naturae observator,Â’ and Linneaus dedicated to him the genus Grewia in Tiliaceae.” “The book is best remembered for the idea, suggested to Grew by the physician Sir Thomas Millington, that the stamen, with its pollen, is the male sex organ and that the pistil corresponds to the sex organ of the female.” (Encyclopedia Britannica) Hunt 362.

He also established standard forms of English poetry though his satires, fables, epigrams, poems, and plays. “Absaom and Achitophel” was a satirical poem by Dryden first published in 1681 and follows the standard meter than Druden established as the norm. This allegorical poem follows the Biblical story of Absalom’s rebellion from King David, but represents Charles II and the Exclusion Crisis, the Popish Plot, and the Monmouth Rebellion. This short work is considered as “the finest political satire in the English language” by the Cambridge Guide to English Literature.

      Acta Eruditorum, 1682+1683. - Leipzig, Grossium & Gleditsch, 1682, 4, (10), 402, (6) pp., 21 Kupferstichtafeln 1683, 4, (8), 561, (7) pp., 14 Kupferstichtafeln, Pergamenteinband der Zeit. First Edition !I. De vera proportione circuli ad quadratum circumscriptum in numeris rationalibus. Mit Kupfertafel. (1682: pp.41-46).This was Leibniz first article published in Acta Eruditorum He deals with mensuration and describes the Leibniz series 1-1/3+1/5-1/7...=pi/4.II. Unicum opticae, catoptricae et dioptricae principium. Mit Kupfertafel. (1682: pp.185-190).Leibniz hinted at the derivation of the law of refraction by means of extreme value methods. He names p.186 his method: "methodo de maximus et minimis" not jet published. "Auch Leibniz lehnte die Descartessche Ableitung mit ihren Voraussetzungen ab und wandte ebenfalls das Heronsche Prinzip an, verstand aber unter Kraftaufwand eine Arbeitsleistung. Damit war das Brechnungsgesetz endgültig festgestellt, unabhängig von den Voraussetzungen über das Wesen des Lichts" Hoppe, Geschichte der Optik, p.35 vgl. DSB VIII, pp.156 ff.III. Meditatio de separatione salis et aquae dulcis, novoque separationum chymicarum genere. (1682: pp.386-388). Leibniz publishes in the Acta Eruditorum a short "Meditatio de Separatione Salis et aquae dulcis, novoque Separationum Chymicarum genere [Meditation on the Separation of Salt and Fresh Water, and on the Genus of Chemical Separations]." Considering this treatise's appearance shortly after the work on phosphorus and the one on the 'spiritus ardens', and considering that these appear at a time when we know Leibniz was working on the animal-economical texts that will be studied in the following chapter, we may say that the early 1680s mark a high point in both Leibniz's chemical and physiological interests. We may also conjecture that he saw the two domains of inquiry as deeply interwoven, even inseparable: there is, Leibniz believed, an application for chemistry in the study of animal bodies. Animal economy considers these bodies qua structures chemistry studies them as masses. The fact that the raw material for some of the most important chemical experiments of Leibniz's day came directly from the animal or human body-for example, the use of urine for the production of phosphorus-further shows how difficult it would have been for Leibniz and his contemporaries to make a firm distinction between chemistry as the study of all sorts of mixtures, on the one hand, and on the other what we call "biology." Justin E.H. Smith, Divine Machines (2011), p.30IV. Meditatio juridico-mathematica de interusurio simplice. (1683: pp.425-432) . Mathematik, Statistik und Versicherung - "Auch selbst hat sich Leibniz eingehend mit Fragen der Versicherungsmathematik, insbesondere des Barwertes, des Gesundheitswesens und der Statistik befaßt. Er forderte die jährliche Veröffentlichung von Geburts- und Sterbelisten im Interesse des Ausbaus der Personenversicherung. Außerdem dachte er an eine "Reservekasse als Nothpfennig für Witwen und Waisen", wofür jedem Beamten von seiner Besoldung jeweils ein bestimmter Betrag abgezogen werden sollte, um die Hinterbliebenen vor dem äußersten Ruin und Armut nach dem Tode des Ernährers zu schützen. Dem weiteren Fortschritt des Versicherungswesens kam schließlich außer der Erfindung seiner Rechenmaschine die Entwicklung der Zinseszinsrechnung zu statten, die er 1683 in der damaligen Gelehrtenzeitschrift "Acta Eruditorum" veröffentlichte." Peter Koch, Geschichte der Versicherungswissenschaft in Deutschland: Aus Anlass seiner .. (1998), pp.61-62 "A detailed legal and economic apologia for the principle of discounting with compound interest is to be found for the first time in the works of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in 1682. He shows that the calculation of capital values follows from three self-evident legal maxims for the premature redemption of a debt. Compound interest is a result of the reinvestment of money released from an investment. And that is why the discussion on whether compound interest is usury was bound to lead to the discovery of the reinvestment premises in investment accounting procedures." Hans Pohl & Bernd Rudolph (Ed.): German Yearbook on Business History 1985, p.32Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz's (1646-1716) Hannover) appointment in the Hanoverian service gave him more time for his favourite pursuits. He used to assert that as the first-fruit of his increased leisure, he invented the differential and integral calculus in 1674, but the earliest traces of the use of it in his extant note-books do not occur till 1675, and it was not till 1677 that we find it developed into a consistent system it was not published till 1684. Most of his mathematical papers were produced within the ten years from 1682 to 1692, and many of them in a journal, called the Acta Eruditorum, founded by himself and Otto Mencke in 1682, which had a wide circulation on the continent.He was one of the true geniuses of modern history. Although his contributions to the development of differential calculus remain his greatest legacy, his definition of identity and his work in establishing a formal notation for all mathematics provided the foundation for others like Peano nearly two hundred years later.Further items of special interest are Robert Boyle: Noctiluca aerea, seu nova quaedam phaenomena & processus substantiae artificialis per se lucentis.
