BLONDEL [François]
Paris, François Le Cointe for the author & Nicolas Langlois, 1683. 4to.

Contemporary mottled calf, compartments of spine richly gilt, one with title morocco label; ends of spine and corners worn. First edition of this exposition of the author's system of fortification, a widely read work which ran into many editions. The plates represent layouts of fortifications and diagrams (8 signed by the artist J. B. Broebes). Blondel advocates an intricate defence system based on massively built, long flanks fortified with casemates on several floors and with polygons heavily defended with canon and small arms to stop intruders before attempting to cross the elaborate, deep ditches. His system was partially applied by the Swedish army in the fortifications of the city of Wismar. A good copy with minor traces of wear only; inside front cover the contemporary manuscript entry: 'Ce Livre apartient a Monsieur le Commandeur de St Martin de Laraye'. Berlin Katalog 3533; Jähns 1391-92; not in Jordan who lists an Amsterdam reprint of the same year (0333) and 7 later editions; Goldsmith (1211) lists a Hague edition of 1684 in the British Library.

Mitelli, Giuseppe Maria
e. [Bologna: n.p.], 1683 [i.e. c. 1700?] Folio (11 x 15-7/8 inches), (25) ff, consisting of illustrated title-page, dedication leaf (?A svoi scolari?), and 23 leaves, one for each letter of the 23 letter alphabet; engraved throughout. Blind-panelled vellum over boards, bound to style by Byzantium. Inner margins just touched with a few repaired wormholes, nowhere near the image and quite unobtrusive. printed on 18th-century paper from the original plates, an unrecorded restrike edition. An unrecorded reprinting of the great Mitelli alphabet, probably printed c. 1700 in Italy judging by the paper. This wonderful Baroque artist?s model book includes various illustrations for use as drawing models surrounding the letters of the alphabet rendered as variations on the human form, with didactic captions in verse at foot of each leaf. Grove notes (vol. 21, p. 732) that Mitelli was the son of the painter Agostino Mitelli, and owes his reputation to over 500 etched prints of contemporary manners and morals. ?His large print oeuvre, illustrating ceremonies and pageants, warfare, folklore, trades, and religious paintings,, provides a rich cultural source of contemporary Bolognese life... ?

First appearance of Tschirnhaus's two papers in which he used infinitisimal methods which were very close to Leibniz's method and where he tried to lay down criteria for rational quadratures in the case of conic, cubic and quadratic curves, papers that led Leibniz to publish his first paper on the differential calculus, the "Nova Methoda" in the Acta for 1684 in order to secure his priority over Tschirnhaus concerning the calculus. Leibniz discovered, when he read Tschirnhaus' papers, that Tschirnhaus had here published results showing similarity with Leibniz's invention of the calculus as he had confided to Tschirnhaus earlier, during their Parisian stay, and this without references to Leibniz.The second issue contains an original paper by LEIBNIZ: "Meditatio Juridico-Mathematica de Interusurio simplice".

Extraneous creasing, generally fresh and clean. First edition. An anonymous letter sent by a monk dated from Manila, 26th May, 1683 and clearly written by a missionary; begins making reference to the supposedly miserable state of the islands ¿Hallase en tan miserable estado aquella tierra, y tan necesitada de remedio, que parece indispensable el dexar de dar noticia de todo por los medio posibles¿. On folio 8 a new piece by the same writer of the letter starts with the title ¿Puntos que hemos sabido se escriven al Consejo contra nosostros este año, y respuesta a ellos, que haran la fee que Dios les diere luegar, porque no es possible hazer informacion, que aun para casos muy Corrientes, ni tenemos Escrivanos, ni testigos que se atrean a ayudarnos, ni aun por sueños¿; this part contains the accusations made against the Dominicans in the region and their replies, contesting the accusations & statements. Alonso de Sandin was a Spanish Priest, in 1682 he was elected Vicar General of the Philippines, Japan and China; a prominent figure, he authorized Cogolludo´s significant Historia de Yucathan for printing (1688).

Mark Catesby
A very detailed hand colored engraving by Mark Catesby (1683-1749 from his breathtaking series "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands". This print is from the Third edition, published in London in 1731-44 [1771]. Overall this print is 14” x 20”. In 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. Widely considered a crowning achievement of 18t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plates quite sharp, though text with. some occasional light staining. Withal, a solid VG - VG+ copy.. In its day, Tolet's Treatise a well-regarded work on the subject; initially published in 1681, it was soon translated into English and German, with his work still being published in England in 1723, and in Paris as late as 1758. This English version of Tolet's Treatise one of the earliest books in this language on the subject, preceded only by, our research suggests, a 1677 translation of Groenveldt's Lithologia, and Fabricius Hildanus' Lithotomia Vesic¾, published in 1640. Quite rare on the market, especially complete with all 20 plates, with APBC not having any listings, and AE showing the most recent auction of that by Southeby's, in 1981, an imperfect copy lacking 2 plates. .

Mark Catesby
A very detailed hand colored engraving by Mark Catesby (1683-1749 from his breathtaking series "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands". This book was published in London 1731-1743 (first edition), 1754 (second edition), 1771 (third edition). Overall this print is 14” x 20” and is from the Third edition. In 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le susdit Rivier (Rivière) ayant séduit la marquise de Colligny, suit le récit des stupéfiantes tribulations du Sieur Rivière, lequel arguait de la réalité et validité de son mariage.
