Zunner), 1687.. 2 works in 1 Volume, the second: Tabulæ geomanticæ, seu liber singularis de tribus ultimis ex antiquo manuscripto de anno MDXXXV. Jam primo luci datus, annexis duabus tabellis huic studio mirè inservientibus, cæteroquin utilibus & jucundis. Frankfurt, J. D. Zunner, 1693. Fasciculus Geomanticus: FIRST EDITION 1687, small 8vo, approximately 170 x 95 mm, 6½ x 3¾ inches, title page printed red and black, 1 full page engraved plate plus 1 folding plate with 2 engraved illustrations, 6 folding tables, pages: 647, (1- a blank), pages 104, 123, 227, 533, 546 incorrectly numbered 04, 12, 229, 233, 346, respectively, collation: A-Z8, Aa-Rr8, Ss4 (T3, Ll3 incorrectly signed T5, Ll5, respectively), rebound at some time in half leather over marbled boards, endpapers renewed at the same time, title blind stamped on spine. Spine slightly faded, title page lightly browned with slight worming to top and bottom margins neatly repaired and a name at the top dated 1911, worming persists to page 10, occasional light browning and light spotting, small ink spot to page 353/4, no loss, some light brown staining to pages 555-557, and 571-572, no loss, single plate at page 256 and folding plate at page 292 are lightly browned. A very good complete copy. This is the first edition of a compilation of treatises on geomancy including Robert Fludd's Tractatus de geomantia, H. de Pisis' Opus Geomantiae completum in libros tres, and Quaestiones geomantiae Altakini. Robert Fludd was an English physician and a prominent Rosicrucian. Geomancy was historically a form of predicting the future or uncovering facts hidden to the inquirer using a number of dots randomly jotted down by the geomancer. Fludd attempted to take this idea a little further and to use its application to unlock the unconscious part of the mind. Consequently, the work is of interest to historians of early psychology. Bound with: Tabulae Geomanticae, anonymous, FIRST EDITION 1693, small 8vo, pages: (3), 4-197, (3 -blanks), 2 folding tables precede the title page: Tabula Harmonica Sublunarium and Speculum Judiciale Astrologicum. Collation: A-M8, N4. A few pages lightly browned, 1 table slightly misfolded. A very good copy. 2 copies in Copac, 2 others on WorldCat, none names the author. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy... Translated... by Andrew Motte. To which are added, the lawes of the moon's motion, according to gravity. By John Machin... In two volumes.London: Benjamin Motte, 1729.

      First edition in English of the Principia. The first edition was published in Latin in 1687 and "is generally described as the greatest work in the history of science. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The Principia provided the greatest synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, with a single physical theory. With him the separation of the natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equaled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species... [Newton] is generally regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time and the founder of mathematical physics" (PMM 161).<br/><br/> The first book, De Motu Corporum (On the motion of bodies), applies the laws of motion to the behaviour of bodies in various orbits. The second book continues with the motion of bodies in fluids and with the behaviour of fluids themselves. In the third book De Mundi Systemate (On the system of the world) Newton applies the Law of Universal Gravitation to the motion of planets, the Moon and comets. Newton derives Kepler's laws of planetary motion from this system and shows how a range of phenomena are governed by the same set of natural laws, including the behaviour of Earth's tides and the precession of the equinoxes, although Newton failed to account fully for the irregularities in the Moon's motion caused by the gravitational influence of the Sun. <br/><br/> This first English translation, published two years after Newton's death, was prepared by Andrew Motte (1696-1734). The son of the well-known printer Benjamin Motte, who printed Andrew Motte's Treatise on the mechanical powers (1727), as well as the present work, Motte was very briefly a lecturer on geometry at Gresham College. The translation is based on the 1726 third edition of the Latin text, edited by Henry Pemberton, and is dedicated to Sir Hans Sloane as President of the Royal Society. John Machin's attempt to rectify Newton's lunar theory is appended to the main work. <br/><br/> Babson 20; Norman 1587; Wallis 23; I. B. Cohen, "Pemberton's translation of Newton's Principia, with notes on Mote's translation", Isis 54 (1963), 319-51. See PMM 161... Two volumes, 8vo. pp. [38], 320, [2], 393, [13], viii, 71, [1], with 2 engraved frontispieces by A. Motte, 2 folding letterpress tables, 47 folding engraved plates, and 3 engraved head-pieces by Motte. The frontispiece to volume I shows the apotheosis of Newton, and quotes four lines from Halley's liminary verses to the original edition of Principia, that to volume II shows a pendulum and has two references to the text, one in the scholium generale. Contemporary calf, covers ruled in gilt, spine gilt with red and green lettering-pieces (rebacked). A large, clean copy

Carta con normale bruniture del tempo.Al frontespizio etichetta con il nome del possessore: Filippo Friggeri.Al risguardo anteriore annotazione: Bacco in Toscana del Sig. Fran.co Redi di Fiorenza. Al frontespizio marca tipografica rettangolare con una sirena coronata sul mare, in una corona vegetale con festoni. Capilettera e finalino al termine delle Annotazioni ornati.Seconda edizione dopo quella fiorentina del 1685 di questo famoso poema che dopo le prime 46 pagine, nelle annotazioni descrive le virtù del vino e dunque i benefici di un bere moderato, illustrando .Francesco Redi, figlio di Gregorio, medico del Granduca Ferdinando II , nacque ad Arezzo nel 1626 e si laureò in medicina e filosofia a Pisa nel 1647. Nei primi anni cinquanta è ospite a Roma del cardinale Colonna, poi tornato a Firenze entrò al servizio dei Medici: per la sua conoscenza di lingue e dialetti - francese, inglese, spagnolo e perfino l'arabo - venne incaricato insieme ad altri studiosi della correzione ed ampliamento del vocabolario della Crusca della cui accademia divenne Arciconsolo nel 1678. Come studioso fu un propugnatore del metodo galileiano che applicò a molti dei suoi studi scientifici. La sua vastissima cultura lo portò ad essere uno dei fondtori dell'Accademia del Cimento e ad essere nominato Archiatro del Granduca e, dopo la pubblicazione del Bacco in Toscana, venne chiamato a far parte dell'Accademia di Camera della Regina Maria Cristina di Svezia. Morì a Pisa il pimo marzo 1697, dove si trovava con la corte medicea che si spostava per la stagione di caccia nella tenuta di San Rossore. Il suo corpo venne imbalsamato e portato come aveva deciso ad Arezzo, dove è sepolto nel grande monumento funerario erettogli dal nipote nella chiesa di San Francesco.

        Philosophiæ naturalis principia mathematica. Editio tertia aucta & emendata.London: William & John Innys, 1726.

      Third and definitive edition of "the greatest work in the history of science" (PMM), one of only 1250 copies printed. "This edition was the last published during the author's lifetime and the basis of all subsequent editions. It was edited by Henry Pemberton, M.D., F.R.S., and contains a new preface by Newton and a large number of alterations, the most important being the scholium on fluxions, in which Leibnitz had been mentioned by name. This had been considered an acknowledgement of Leibnitz's independent discovery of the calculus. In omitting Leibnitz's name in this edition, Newton was criticized as taking advantage of an opponent whose death had prevented any reply" (Babson, p. 12).<br/><br/> In the <i>Principia</i>, first published in 1687, Newton formulated the three laws of motion from which he derived the principle of universal gravitation, "wherein all bodies, of whatever mass, attract one another in proportion to their masses and in inverse ratio as the square of the distance between them. This applies to dust particles as to the mightiest celestial bodies" (Dibner). "Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The Principia provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species" (PMM). <br/><br/> This is an absolutely complete copy, including the half-title, portrait, license leaf and publisher's catalogue, some of which are missing from most copies that appear on the market. <br/><br/> PMM 161 (first edition); Babson 13; Gray 9; Wallis 9.. 4to (241 x 192 mm), pp. [34], 530, [8], with engraved frontispiece portrait (facing title) by George Vertue after I.
