[WILKINS, John]
Title and text within double rules. With numerous text woodcuts and 8 engravings (mostly full-page). Contemporary calf, rebacked; fore-edges of leaves a bit brown, and with occasional soiling to the text. Contemporary notes bound into the front and back on small strips of heavy paper, early signatures of Charles Mackie dated 1682, another signature crossed out, and a James and Jacob Finlay and J. Powell in contemporary hand. First edition of the first book on mechanics in English. Wilkins describes a number of machines that make up his collection of mechanical inventions and devices. Among the most famous are the perpetual motion machines generated by means of magnets, flying machines, submarines, and clocks. Wilkins also includes a more general discussion of mechanics, treating the use of the wheel, screw, pulley, wedge, and lever. & & Wilkins (1614-72), 14th Bishop of Chester, was the warden at Wadham College, Oxford when this work was written. He was amongst a number of individuals who would get together at an Oxford laboratory during this time to discuss their interests in experimental philosophy and science. They were the nucleus of the future Royal Society: John Wallis, Jonathan Goddard, William Petty, Thomas Willis, Robert Boyle, Hooke, and many more. Wilkins was one of the founders of the Royal Society, and its first secretary.&

Leibniz, G. W. & J. Bernoulli & others
- Lipsiae [Leipzig], J. Gross & J. F. Gleditsch, 1682-1692. Twelve volumes in seven. 4to (20.0 x 16.0 cm). Over 7,150 pp., 162 (of 164) engraved plates of which many are large, folded, numerous text engravings. Original half vellum over speckled boards (1684), or full vellum (all other volumes). Near uniform script title on the spines. Edges red.l The Acta Eruditorum (Reports of scholars) was the first scientific journal of the German world. Arguably the most important scientific journal of its time, with all the major discoveries in physics, chemistry, mathematics, astronomy, biology medicine and history, it was widely read throughout the scientific world, being written in Latin. The Acta eruditorum was founded in Leipzig in 1682 (the present set thus is the rare start, including the first volume). Founders and first editors were Otto Mencke, and Gottfried Leibniz. Like the English 'Philosophical Transactions' and the French 'Journal des Savants', the 'Acta Eruditorum' contained excerpts from new writings (often letters, circulating among scientists), reviews, and original contributions. Some of the foremost scientists of their time made regular contributions. In particular Leibniz, and Jakob and Johan Bernoulli, published their important mathematical contributions in here. Leibniz published 36 articles in these volumes of the Acta Eruditorum, perhaps the most important being his work on integral calculus "De Geometria recondita et Analysi Indivisibilium atque infinitorum,." in 1686, described in more detail below. The 1684 volume contains Leibniz's famous article on diffe … [Click Below for Full Description]

A2v). It is on his findings in this area that his reputation as a scientist is chiefly based. His work was primarily marked by his brilliant observation and description of plants and their component parts; having begun by making observations using only the naked eye, Grew supplemented these with the use of a microscope under the tutelage of his colleague Hooke.

Par monsieur de Wicquefort. 1-2. The Hague, Maurice Georg Veneur, 1682. 4:o. (4),+ 658,+ (58); (4),+ 308,+ (15) pp. Spotting throughout and a few minor dampsstains. Worn contemporary full calf, with gilt spine, tears at head and tail. Second edition of this important study of diplomatics, printed in several editions and translations. First published in The Hague in 1680-81. The Dutchman Abraham de Wicquefort (1606-1682), who wrote "L'ambassadeur et ses Fonctions" in prison, is the first author whose focus was more on actual diplomatic practise. "The purpose of this work was to describe what an envoy does and how he should conduct himself. He was on the threshold of a new development and gave the literature on diplomacy a new orientation". Wicquefort was from 1642 Brandenburg diplomat in Paris, but was imprisoned by Cardinal Mazarin in 1659 and in 1660 expelled. He then stayed in Hague, but was in 1679 imprisoned for life for high treason. Beside this book and a history of the Netherlands, he also translated the travels by Olearius into French

Title extended at foot, a little marginal restoration to early and last leaves not affecting text, outer leaves slightly dusty, still a good copy. Rare early edition of the first Scottish music book. The Hero as Printer comments that "this work was the first published edition containing Scottish songs and the only music book which presents the music as well as the teaching method employed in a Scottish music school of the period." Among the many songs here is the old Scots carol, "Remember, O thou man", which is frequently cited as the source of the tune used for the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen". Wing attributes the work to Thomas Davidson, as the first edition title has "T.D." [i.e. Thomas Davidson] as the instructor of the "musick-schole", but Forbes signs the introduction here twice, and claims to have compiled the whole work himself.

SWAMMERDAM, J.
Ou l'on expose clairement la manière lente & presqu' insensible de l'accroissement de leurs membres, & ou l'on decouvre evidemment l'erreur ou l'on tombe d'ordinaire au sujet de leur prétendué transformation. Utrecht, G. de Walcheren, 1682. Small-4to. pp. (8), 215, (1), with woodcut title-vignette, 1 folded table and 13 (10 folded) engraved plates. Contemporary boards, spine with 2 red gilt lettered labels. Hagen II, 209; Horn & Schenkling 21794; Nissen ZBI, 4054. First French edition; the original Dutch edition was published in 1669, entitled 'Historia Insectorum generalis'. "Swammerdam's thesis about insects was fundamentally new and significant. For his contemporaries, as for Aristotle, there existed three good arguments, that not only placed the insects far from the higher animals, but even tended to remove them from the realm of subjects open to scientific study. These arguments were: insects lack internal anatomy; they originate by spontaneous generation; and they develop by metamorphosis. Swammerdam believed that all three arguments were false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas" (D.S.B. XIII, pp. 168-175). One leaf with 2 small tears.

Cellarius Christophori
Ienae (Jena) Io. Bielckii 1680 [and] 1682. Two books bound as one. Second edition of the Curae Posteriores and second edition of the Latinitate Mediae. With the engraved pictorial title dated 1680. 12mo, handsomely bound in contemporary antique vellum with yap edges. [xvi], 317, [25 index]; [xxiv], 280, [24 index] pp. A very fine and proper copy, unusually well preserved. Rare thus. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT EARLY PRINTING FROM JENA. Two works bound together on the study of Latin by one of the most learned philologists of the 17th century. Christopher Cellarius studied at several German universities, he taught moral philosophy and the Oriental languages at Weissenfels. In 1673, he was made rector of the school at Weimar, and afterwards of the seminaries at Zeitz and Merseburg, and, finally, professor of eloquence and history at Halle, where he died in 1707. He is also noted for being the first person to divide Western history into the Ancient, Medieval and New periods, and in doing so is credited for creating the term "Middle Ages". Cellarius published a great number of ancient authors, with learned annotations and very accurate indexes, as, for instance, the letters of Cicero and of Pliny, Cornelius Nepos, Curtius, Eutropius, Sextus Rufus, Velleius Paterculus, the 12 ancient panegyrists, Minucius Felix, Silius Italicus, &c. His own compositions relate to ancient history and geography, Roman antiquities, and the Latin language, as is presented here. The CURAE POSTERIORES is quite rare.

(BARBADOS, SUGAR & SLAVERY)
13 May, , 1682. The settlement between Gunstone and Major Rowland Bulkeley, Captain John Cousins, Richard Forde and Henry Byrch, all of Barbados. Folio (475 × 325 mm). Three conjoined pieces of paper, including "A List or Schedule of all and every ye Negro-Slaves, Horses, Cattle & Stock, Coppers, Stills & Materialls belonging to ye Plantacion of Capt. Thomas Gunstone..." Slightly browned, some creases from old folds, a number of minor professional repairs to small splits, negligible loss, some staining along the folds, seal tags truncated, about very good. Barbados was first settled by the English in 1627. By 1638 it was a tobacco plantation economy, in depression because of over-production in Virginia and the West Indies. Soon after sugar production commenced it was boosted by rising sugar prices in Europe caused by dislocation in Portuguese Brazil, which had up till then been the major source. By the early 1650s Barbados could be described as the richest spot in the New World, and had left Hispaniola behind as the sugar centre of the Caribbean. This "Sugar Revolution" in Barbados and the Leeward Islands led to major changes in economic organization. Sugar production needed land both for growing cane and for the associated industrial works, mills, boiling-houses etc., so there was a move towards large plantation units, and the heavy, severe labour needs greatly accelerated the slave trade. In 1645 Barbados had less than 6,000 slaves and in 1698, 42,000. The census of property owners in Barbados compiled in 1679 shows that in the parish of St. George, the parish of Thomas … [Click Below for Full Description]
