        Confucius sinarum Philosophus, sive Scientia Sinensis latine exposita …

      Paris: Daniel Horthemels,, 1687. Adjecta est tabula chronologica sinicae monarchiae ab hujus exordio ad haec usque tempora. Folio (322 × 220 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, sides with gilt roll border, spine gilt in compartments, hand-lettered title label in third compartment, comb-marbled endpapers, red sprinkled edges. Engraved portrait of Confucius, engraved map of China (fore-edge folded in), both for Jean Nolin; engraved headpieces. Bookplate of Neander Library, Rochester Theological Seminary, pencil shelf-mark on title verso, but no other library marks. Occasional marginalia in pencil and ink. Skilful unobtrusive restoration to front joint, spine ends and corners, a little dampstaining at head only markedly affecting central gatherings L-N, a few marks or blemishes, but a very good copy in contemporary calf. First European edition of Confucius: the first three parts being Latin translations of the Ta Hsüeh, the Chung Yung, and the Lun Yü or Analects; and the fourth, Philippe Couplet's Tabula chronologica sinicae monicharchiae, listing Chinese kings from BCE 2952 to 1683 CE, with a separate title-page. Partial translations only of Confucius' works had previously been made into Latin and into French. The book was published under the patronage of Louis XIV during a lengthy trip to Europe from 1683 to 1692 made by the Flemish Jesuit Couplet (1624-1693) to promote the activities of the mission. The other Jesuits credited are Prospero Intorcetta, Christian Herdtrich, and François Rougement. The work is also notable for the map representing the provinces of China with indications of centres of missionary activity.

        Pas kaart van de Zee kusten van Nieuw Nederland anders genaamt Niew York

      Amsterdam: Johannes van Keulen, [1687]. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring, heightened with gold. In excellent condition. 20 7/8 x 25 inches. A very fine copy of the second state of this spectacular map: the second printed chart of New York, Long Island and southern New England, with a large integral inset which includes the first separate map of the River Hudson Issued in the fourth part of Van Keulen's Zee-Fakkel, this highly important chart is only pre-dated by Arent Roggeveen's extremely rare Pascaerte van Nieu Nederland of 1675. Based on original Dutch surveys made just before they surrendered New Netherlands to the English in 1664, this map "arguably represents the apogee of Dutch knowledge of the region, many toponyms appearing for the first time... Although the region is named both New Netherlands and New York the city itself is unnamed. Nearby are a great number of placenames including some recognisable ones such as Konynen Eyl., Breukelen and further east on Long Island Heemstede, Ooster Bay and Oost Hampton " (Burden II, p.247). The shores of southern New England show the influence of the English settlers with names including Newport, Portsmouth, Providence, Norwich. de Thaems River, Gilford and Niew London. In the far right, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are correctly named and more accurately represented than had previously been the case. "The inset in the top third is the map's main claim to fame. It is the first engraved map devoted to the Hudson River and it, too, introduces many new placenames. On the west side above Manhattan is Taphaan and further upriver is Kats Kil, Middelburgh now Hudson, and 't Greyn Bosch near Albany. Tucked in with it is a smaller inset map of the lower reaches of the Connecticut River called the Versche , or fresh, River" (Burden II, p.247). After an initial investigation by the Dutch, and the establishment of an early trading post near Hartford in 1633, the Connecticut River was left largely to the English. Four main settlements identified here include the towns of Winser, Hereford (i.e. Hartford), Waters Veldt (Weathersfield) and Zee Broeck (Saybrook). The first state of this chart was published by innovative Dutch cartographer and publisher Johannes van Keulen, in his 1685 Sea-Atlas [or Zee-Fakkel]. He had "published earlier editions of his Sea-Atlas [or Zee-Fakkel] in 1680 and 1683, but the [first state of the present chart] ... first appeared as illustration 20 in the third volume of the first completed edition published in 1685." (Deak p.41). The present example, Burden's second state with the plate number engraved in the lower left corner, is from the second edition of the atlas published in 1687. Burden records a third state (c.1695?) and a fourth (the most common, published first in about 1702). Burden The Mapping of North America II, 587 (State 2); Deák Picturing America 68; cf. Koeman IV, Keu109B; McCorkle New England 684.3; cf. Phillips 530, 3444, 3453 and 5692; Stokes Iconography II, pp/158-159.

        Pas Kaart Van de Kust van Carolina tusschen C de Canaveral en C Henry door C. J. Vooght geometra

      Amsterdam: Johannis van Keulen, [1687]. Copper engraved map, period hand colouring. Sheet size: 21 1/8 x 24 1/4 inches. In good condition. An attractive map with an inset of Charleston Harbour, the mouths of the Ashley and Cooper rivers and showing the settlement before it was moved from the west bank of the Ashley. This copy in Burden's second state, with period hand colouring. An excellent copy of Burden's second state with the number '18' engraved at the lower left corner. Burden notes that the cartographer C.J. Vooght draws on unpublished sources for this map, but that the "southern regions still call upon old Spanish nomenclature ... The immediate Carolina coastline is ... compressed on a northerly axis and does not utilise the advances made in the Second Lords Proprietors map of 1682 ... The more southerly of the Outer Bank sounds differ from earlier depictions and C. Hatteras is less prominent also. The soundings off more northerly Outer Banks are from an unknown but presumably English source" (Burden). Burden The Mapping of North America II, 589, state 2; Cumming & De Vorsey 91; Koeman Atlantes Neelandici IV, Keu109A, no.18 & p.376; cf Phillips Atlases nos. 530, 3444 & 3453.

        Pas kaart van de Zee kusten van Guiana Cabo Noord en Rio Amano

      Amsterdam: Johannes van Keulen, [1687]. Copper-engraved map, full contemporary hand-colouring, heightened with gold. 20 7/8 x 25 inches. A very fine copy of this excellent and very early chart of French Guiana. This beautifully-finished map was published by innovative Dutch cartographer and publisher ,Johannes van Keulen, in the 1687 second edition of the third volume his Sea-Atlas [or Zee-Fakkel]. The chart concentrates on Cayenne (now the capital of French Guiana) and coast to the north-west almost to the border with Surinam and south-east to the border with Brazil and beyond to the Rio Arowary, close to the mouth of the Amazon. There are two insets: one a close-up of the island of Cayenne, and the second of the French fort of the same name. The French made a number of abortive attempts to colonise the region, in 1604 and 1643, and it was not until 1664, when France finally succeeded at establishing a permanent settlement at Cayenne. As with most parts of the region, the area changed hand a number of times, between the French, Dutch and English, before being finally restored to France. Cf. Koeman IV, Keu109B

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.

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.

        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

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.
