Cyprianus Caecilius
1682. Seltene Ausgabe der Werke des Hl. Cyprian, Kirchenvater u. Bischof v. Karthago, kommentiert v. J. Fell, Erzbischof v. Oxford.- "In 1682 appeared the magnificent large folio, the fruit of Fell's long study of the Father whose stand against Rome and special theory of the episcopate gave him a unique appeal to Anglicans. The folio comprised all the saint's writings, copiously annotated by Fell, and a new Life, Annales Cyprianici, which was compiled by the greatest English patristic scholar of the age, John Pearson. Fell's apparatus is impressive; his collations numerous, his notes copius. The composition of the text is creditable to an English press; the paper is excellent and the presswork admirable. The book represents the greatest of Fell's contributions to patriotic scholarship and the exposition of the position of the Anglican Church." (Stanley Morison, John Fell, the University Press and the 'Fell' Types, S.48-49.).- Frontispiz u. Titel verso gestempelt, tls. leicht gebräunt od. braunfleckig, sonst gutes Ex.

BOYLE, Robert.
London: Printed by Miles Flesher for Richard Davis, Bookseller in Oxford, 1682. [1] FIRST EDITION. After the Spring and Weight of the Air, Boyle continued to devise experiments on air. In this first continuation, he describes the second English air-pump, constructed like the first by himself and Robert Hooke. He investigated sound, magnetic force and frictional heat in a vacuum; he also confirmed the results of Pascal's famous experiment on the Puy-de-Dôme. Wing B3934. Fulton 16. [2] FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH (from the Latin). The first description of the double air-pump, the third air-pump in England, devised and constructed by Denis Papin, who had brought it with him from France. It had the great advantage of two barrels so arranged that, as the air became exhausted, the resistance offered to the ascent of one piston was nearly balanced by the force with which it compelled the other to descend. It is clear from this book that Boyle and Papin worked together for almost four years. Wing B3935. Fulton 18. [3] Third edition of Boyle's book on his original experiments on air, his first scientific work and the one on which his fame rests. This edition, like the second, includes his controversial tracts against Linus and Hobbes, the former provoking an attack to which Boyle wrote a defence that contained "Boyle's law", first published in the second edition. Wing B4000. Fulton 15. See Horblit 15, PMM 143, and the Norman catalogue 300 for the second edition. Neville I, p. 192, has the same combination of works as are present here.3 works in 2 volumes (the third in 3 parts), 4 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Historically [Pleas of the Crown] is interesting as the first attempt to introduce some order into this branch of the law.": Holdsworth, A History of English Law VI:590-91.

Valentinof Saint-Amand
Cologne - Petrum and Alistorff, 1682. Cologne - Petrum and Alistorff, 1682 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Extremely scarce latin work, detailing the life of the prophet Elijah. With examples of the lives of John and Alberto, the patriarchs of Jerusalem. 'Newly translated by thewriter Vilipendiis Vindicata'. P. Beeckman, in religion Valentine de Saint Amand, was of the order of Carmelites. He born circa 1627 in Alost, taught theology at Louvain, then distinguished himself by his preaching in Antwerp, where he died January 10, 1687, at the age of 60. He took an active part in the fight that broke out at the end of the seventeenth century, between Bollandist scholars of Antwerp, an association of Jesuit scholars, philologists, and historians who studied hagiography and the cult of the saints in Christianity, and the Carmelites, concerning the origin and antiquity of the Carmelite Order. The history of this controversy took on enormous proportions and occupied Europe for several years. Beeckmans wrote works relating to these debates, including Heroica Carmeli. Elijah was a prophet in the Kingdom of Samaria during the reign of Ahab (9th century BCE), according to the Books of Kings. According to the Books of Kings, Elijah defended the worship of Yahweh over that of the more popular Baal, he raised the dead, brought fire down from the sky, and ascended into heaven in a whirlwind (either accompanied by a chariot and horses of flame or riding in it). In the Book of Malachi, Elijah's return is prophesied before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. Conditi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Reinesius,Thomas (1587-1667)
Leipzig: Printed Johann Eric Hahn for Jo. Fritsch & Jo. Fr. Gleditsch, 1682. Hardcover. Very Good. Engraved frontispiece includs the portrait of author in allegorical frontispiece by Johann Jacob de Sandrart + figures in the text + many foliated initial capitals & head- & tailpieces. Folio vellum with black leather gilt spine label (tips rubbed) fine armorial bookplate with motto Tuum Est. Engraved f rontis + printed title +28pp prelims +1032pp + doublepage genealogical table. The titlepage in black only and title without the additional "cum commentariis absolutissimis et instructissimis indicibus nunc primu`m editum" on the titlepage. This edition thus without the index which seems to go with the red & black titlepage. Precedence unknown but usually the index is the last item typeset as the book has to be printed to allow page numbering so probably the those without index are the earlier state. Some inscriptions in Greek, most in Latin many now lost or indecipherable. A very clean, crisp copy of this indispensable and monumental work.

Mark Catesby
Mark Catesby (1682-1749)Plate from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama IslandsLondon: 1731 - 1743; [1731-1771, 3rd edition]Hand-colored copper-plate engraving20" x 14"; 24" x 20 1/2" framedIn 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done.

[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]
