      Leipzig, Grosse & Gleditsch, 1688. 4to. Contemp. full vellum. Faint handwritten title on spine. A small stamp to title page and pasted library label to pasted down front free end-paper. In: "Actorum Eruditorum Anno DCLXXXVIII". (8), 672, 8 pp. A clean copy. The entire volume offered. [Papin's papers:] Pp. 335-339. Pp. 497-501 + 1 plate. Pp. 643-646 + 1 plate. [Kirch' papers:] Pp. 452-53 + 1 plate. Pp. 670-71.. First edition of three Denis Papin-papers in which he describes a pneumatic device to transport power and two papers of astronomer Kirch in which the Sceptrum Brandenburgicum is first described. "In the Acta Eruditorum of 1688 he exhibited a practicable plan, in which he exhausted the air from a set of engines or pumps by means of pumps situated at a long distance from the point of application of the power, and at the place where the prime mover - which was in this case a water-wheel - was erected." (Thurston, Robert Henry. A History Of The Growth Of The Steam-Engine, 2008, p. 49).In 1681 Papin published his invention of the "safety-valve", and in 1687 he outlined another invention, the transmission of power from one point to another, by means of an air-pump. "At this time Papin's interest in air pumps and steam pressure merged to provide an innovative solution to the widespread need for raising water. He considered first a piston ballistic pump using gunpowder, the idea for which he had earlier discussed with Huygens but claimed as his own (in a letter of 6 March 1704 to Leibniz). Papin met the problem of a 20 percent residue of elastic air remaining in the chamber after combustion by substituting steam for gunpowder. In 1690 he published an account of a single cylinder engine in which water was both boiled and condensed in a tube beneath a piston. ______________________________________First edition of Gottfried Kirch's paper in which the Sceptrum Brandenburgicum (Scepter of Brandenburg), a star-constellation, is described for the first time. "Sceptrum Brandenburgicum, the Brandenburg Sceptre, was charted in 1688 by Gottfried Kirch, the first astronomer of the Preussian Royal Society of Sciences, and, more than a century thereafter, was published by bode, who thus rescued it for a time from oblivion [...]. (Allen, Richard Hinckley. Star names: their lore and meaning, 1963, p. 360). Kirch is also known to have discovered several comets.The following papers of interest is also contained in the present volume:Jakob Bernoulli:1. Nova ratio metiendi altitudines Nubium. Pp. 98-103.2. Animadversio in geometriam Cartesianam, et Constructio quarundam Problematum Hypersolidorum. Pp.323-330.3.

        Paradise Lost. A Poem In Twelve Books. The Author John Milton. The Fourth Edition, Adorn’d with Sculptures. [Large Copy]

      Printed by Miles Flesher, for Richard Bently, at the Post-Office in Russell-street London: Printed by Miles Flesher, for Richard Bently, at the Post-Office in Russell-street& , M DC LXXXVIII [1688]. Half-Calf. Near Fine. First Folio Edition (and First Illustrated Edition) of one of the greatest English printed books and Milton’s magnum opus. [4],219,[1],219-250,151-196,297-343(Yy2 misbound within list of subscribers),[8]pp, with 12 full-page copper-engraved plates (one opening each book) and frontispiece portrait of Milton, by R. White after William Faithorne. A rare large copy, measuring 365 by 225 mm (rather than 315 by 200 mm, the dimensions of the ordinary-paper copies, often described as a large-paper copy, but, as Jackson, Pforzheimer and others have pointed out, there is only issue issue, with the watermark (a bunch-of-grapes) always the same, so "this is evidently a cataloguer's fiction."). Contemporary speckled calf, spine in six compartments, expertly rebacked with original red morocco lettering piece laid-down; edges speckled red; plain period end papers. Complete in all respects, with clean pages, clear print and ample margins throughout. The plates are all excellent impressions and the book-block is strong, with both boards firmly attached—overall, an exceptional copy. Provenance: John Peyto Verney, Lord Willoughby de Broke (whose name appears among the subscribers) and Robert John Verney, Lord Willoughby De Broke, whose armorial bookplate appear on front paste down; and Louis Auchincloss, the New York novelist, with his book plate. Wing (2nd ed.), M2146; Shawcross, J. Milton, 345; Coleridge, K. A., Catalogue of the Milton collection in the Turnbull Library, 93c; Wing (CD-ROM, 1996), M2154; Pforzheimer, 720; ESTC Citation No. R180604. & & One of the most storied productions in all of English book publishing (and one of the first to have been financed through subscription). Following publication of the third edition of Paradise Lost, in 1678, Milton’s widow sold rights to the poem to a printer named Simmons. Simmons in turn sold his rights to Brabazon Aylmer, who sold half shares to Tonson and Bently, who apparently shared the copyright and together produced the great 1688 folio. (Tonson seems to have considered this his crowning effort, "for in his portrait, painted by Kneller, he holds the book conspicuously in his hand.” [Wither to Prior]) This First Folio is one of the "earliest serious effort to illustrate an important work of English poetry" (Five Centuries of Book Illustration), "distinguished by excellent paper, large, clear type and ample margins” (Jacob Tonson, Kit-Kat Publisher). The designs, commissioned by Tonson, are based not on the text but on Milton's argument for each book. Of particular note is the plate to Book I, with it's stunning chiaroscuro, Satin starkly lit by flames as he leans on his spear for support over Hell’s burning lake, the host of rebel angels prostrate before him,"one of the most forceful of English 17th century illustrations.” (Harthan, The Illustrated Book). The illustrator, John Baptist Medina (1659-1710), was a major Spanish figure of late 17th century art, deeply influenced by Rubens. All but two of the 13 plates were engraved by Michael Burghers (one of the 500 subscriber to this edition).&

        A Mapp of Ye Improved Part of Pensilvania in America Divided into Countyes Townshipps and Lotts

      [London]: "Surveyed by Tho: Holme Sold by P. Lea at ye Atlas and Hercules in Cheapside", [ca.1688]. Copper engraving, hand-coloured in outline. Inset plan of The City of Philadelphia two miles in Length and one in Breadth at upper center. Tables of References to the Settlements of the Inhabitants of Chester and Bucks counties at upper left and right. Dedication to "William Penn Esq. Proprietor and Governor of Pennsylvania by J. Harris" at upper right. 112 numbered and lettered references in Chester County, 29 numbered references in Bucks County, 36 numbered and lettered references in Philadelphia County, and hundreds of land holders identified on the map itself. Sheet size: 20½ x 24 inches. Very rare: the first issue of Holme's map of Pennsylvania -- the first map of Pennsylvania. This copy a superb example with contemporary outline colour and wide margins. Thomas Holme was appointed Surveyor General of Pennsylvania by William Penn in April 1682, the year after the colony was chartered. It was his responsibility to supervise the surveying of all tracts of land that had been sold. In May 1687, at Penn's request, he forwarded a manuscript map in London that gave a detailed portrait of the extent of settlement at that date. "This was published first as a very large and later as a smaller engraving. In both, the grid plan of the city was carefully inserted in recognition of the fact that Philadelphia was the focal point and that the city plan had strong sales value in all promotion of the province generally" (Snyder). The manuscript survey was published as a six-sheet wall map in late 1687, of which only a handful of copies have survived. The present version, finely engraved by John Harris, was published by Philip Lea shortly thereafter. Although reduced in size from the wall map, the engraver maintained the extraordinary detail. Virtually every first purchaser is identified, either on the map itself or via the numbered and lettered references. The present copy is the rare first state of the map, issued by P. Lea sometime between 1687 and 1699 (though likely circa 1688 as the map was an integral part of William Penn's promotion of his tract). On the later states, Lea's imprint has been erased from the plate and another imprint added at the lower left on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. The map is the most detailed and complete for any English American colony of the seventeenth century. Penn intended the map for promotional purposes, and it shows the boundaries and names the owner of every settled tract in the colony. The plan of Philadelphia at upper center is taken from Holme's original survey map of 1682, from which the city was laid out. Holme's was the first map of Philadelphia, and in its printed form, the first obtainable for any English American city.

Moderate foxing to title page, else clean, minor soil to cover with bumped corners. Joint on 1st volume is cracked but still holding. Eusebius, Greek ecclesiastical historian, is known as the father of church history. "The apologetic writings of Eusebius are the Praeparatio Evangelica... and the Demonstratio Evangelica... They are both, but especially the former, a rich storehouse of information on antiquity, particularly on the philosophy and religion of the Greeks." (Seyffert. Dictionnary of Classical Antiquities. p. 231). "The Praeparatio evangelica ('preparation for the gospel'), in which he shows that the Greek tradition is inferior to the Hebrew and the best of Greek philosophy merely coincided with or was derived from biblical teaching, is incidentally valuable in that it includes many quotations from classical authors now lost." (Oxford Companion to Classical Literature. 1995. p. 227). SCARCE!!! Photos available upon request. Heavy volume.
