PEPYS, SAMUEL.
[London]: Printed Anno, 1690. First edition, the issue for private distribution without the commercial imprint on the title-page; the regular issue has the full imprint: "London: Printed for Ben. Griffin, and are to be sold by Sam. Keble, 1690." 8vo, contemporary panelled calf, red morocco label, gilt decorations and lettering. Frontis portrait and folding table. ¶ Pepys' account of what he thought was needed for the Royal Navy, written just after his retirement as Secretary of the Navy in 1688.

This copy has nine of the manuscript corrections (in Pepys' hand or under his direction) and the usual cancels. ¶ Early ink signature on the title-page of "Northesk," which is probably that of John Carnegie (1756-1831), the seventh earl of Northesk, who served in the Royal Navy with great distinction. Edges a little rubbed; upper joints starting, but sound; fine copy.

HUYGENS, Christian
Woodcut device on general & divisional titles and numerous woodcut diagrams & illus. in the text. General title printed in red & black. 4 p.l., 124, [2], 125-128, [2], 129-180 pp. 4to, cont. vellum over boards. Leyden: P. vanderAa, 1690. First edition of one of the great classics of optics. This book contains Huygens' classical formulation of optical phenomena in terms of the wave theory of light, opposing the corpuscular theory advanced by Newton. Huygens showed how all points of a wave front originate partial waves and thereby propagate further wave motion. Thus reflection and refraction of light could also be explained. By the same means the complicated phenomena of double refraction and the polarization by double refraction were also explained. Huygens' wave theory of light remained unaccepted for over 100 years until Thomas Young used it to explain optical interference. The second part of this book -- the Discours de la Cause de la Pesanteur -- contains Huygens' mechanical explanation of gravity. His "point of view was that gravity should not be attributed to a quality or propensity of bodies, but should be explained, like every other natural process, in terms of motion."-Wolf, I, p. 164. This copy belongs to the issue in which Huygens' initials are on the title rather than his full name (no priority established). A fine and fresh copy. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 146.

[LOCKE, John.]
London: by Eliz. Holt, for Thomas Basset,, 1690. In Four Books. Folio (320 × 188 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, neatly rebacked and relined. Collector's maroon morocco-backed slipcase (spine slightly rubbed and faded) and folding cloth chemise. Bookplate of James Strohn Copley. Original rear free endpaper preserved, with early manuscript notes, torn part of another similar leaf with notes mounted on rear free endpaper, contemporary marginalia throughout. Title leaf sometime washed to remove an early inscription, now a little browned in places and with minor paper restoration at fore-edge margin and extreme upper outer corner without affecting text, prelims somewhat browned towards head, a little browning in places elsewhere, a good copy. First edition, the Holt issue (traditionally considered the first), with two emendations in the author's hand. Locke worked for nearly two decades on his investigation of "the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge," concluding that "though knowledge must necessarily fall short of complete comprehension, it can at least be 'sufficient'; enough to convince us that we are not at the mercy of pure chance, and can to some extent control our own destiny" (PMM). The significance of his Essay was immediately recognized: it quickly ran to several editions and was popularized on the Continent by French translations. "Few books in the literature of philosophy have so widely represented the spirit of the age and country in which they appeared, or have so influenced opinion afterwards" (Fraser). This copy has two emendations in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio, pp. [4], 864, cxlviii; musical notation printed in red and black throughout; 2 additional manuscript leaves with musical notation bound in at the back; manuscript musical notation on verso of front free endpaper; woodcut vignette on title, title printed in red and black, woodcut historiated initials; elaborate contemporary blindtooled pigskin over wooden boards, edges stained red (but faded along bottom edge and part of fore-edge), brass bosses at center of both covers and in all corners, brass clasps and hasps, and preserving as well the striped cloth page markers (12 in all ) held together by a plain brass head plate at the top edge; slight loss of leather at corners, small minor abrasions, otherwise a near fine and most impressive copy. A Catholic Antiphonal containing the Propers of the office according to the Cistercian use, and employing the black notes and red staves of the Georgian musical notation. This copy was acquired by the Cistercian monastery in Salem in southern Germany (Baden) following the fire in 1697 that destroyed many of the buildings. The monastery secularized in 1802 and the library was moved to Peterhausen, and thence was sold to the University of Heidelberg. A portion of the library, including this volume, was acquired by Baron von Lassberg. The Lassberg collection of post-incunabula was sold en bloc to an Anglo-American bookselling consortium in 1999. The Cistercian Monastery at Salem was an important imperial abbey, founded in 1136 by Bl. Frowin (a companion of St. Bernard of Clairvaux). It was noted in the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bidloo, Govard (anatomist) and Gerard de Lairesse (artist)
Amsterdam: By de weduwe van Joannes van Someren, de erfgenaamen van Joannes van Dyk, Hendrik en de weduwe van Dirk Boom, 1690. Amsterdam: By de weduwe van Joannes van Someren, de erfgenaamen van Joannes van Dyk, Hendrik en de weduwe van Dirk Boom, 1690. Hardcover. Very good. Broadside, 305 x 470 (visible image size), professionally matted and framed. An extraordinary 17th-century anatomical engraving, justly celebrated by anatomists and artists alike for over 300 years; the Surrealists found it particularly fascinating. "This stark dissection -- with ragged flesh fully displayed and hands bound with a cord -- signals a commitment to a higher level of realism. To our eyes, the picture may suggest a distressing indifference to, or even pleasure in, human suffering" (Dream Anatomy, National Library of Medicine, 2003). "Govard Bidloo was born in Amsterdam in 1649 and became professor of anatomy at The Hague from 1688 to 1694, when he took the same position at Leyden. He was later appointed the physician of William III of England, who was originally Dutch, until the King's death in 1702. In that year, Bidloo returned to Leyden to take his old position until his death there in 1713. "Best known as an anatomist, Govard Bidloo's most famous work was his monumental Anatomia humani corporis published in Amsterdam in 1685, containing 107 copperplate engravings. Like so many large and expensive anatomical atlases of the time, the work was not a financial success, and in 1690 he published a Dutch translation entitled, Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams, using the same plates.

L'ouvrage de La Quintinye ayant rencontré un succès tout au long du XVIIIe siècle, le texte fut rapidement réédité et surtout augmenté et enrichi de nouveaux et plus amples conseils. Un portrait de l'auteur en frontispice, 13 planches dont une sur double page et une repliée, et de jolis bandeaux historiés illustrent l'ouvrage Cet ouvrage rassemble les réflexions et l'expérience de Jean-Baptiste de la Quintinye (1626-1688), célèbre jardinier et agronome français, qui abandonna la profession d'avocat pour se consacrer à l'art des jardins. Il s'occupa de ceux des grands personnages de l'époque (Nicolas Fouquet, le prince de Condé, le duc de Montausier, Colbert). En 1670 Louis XIV le chargea de la direction de ses jardins fruitiers et potagers. Ensuite, pour cinq années, il se consacra à la création du nouveau potager du roi. Sur les deux pages de titres, ex-libris du temps d'un prénommé "Regnault", qui a laisse une longue note manuscrite à la fin du premier tome où il donne sa "Méthode" pour "faire le goudron à couvrir greffes en fente et les greffes branches coupées".

HUYGENS, Christiaan
Leiden: Pieter van der Aa,, 1690. Où sont expliquées les causes de ce qui luy arrive dans la reflexion, & dans la refraction. Et particulierement dans l'etrange refraction du cristal d'islande … Avec un discours de la cause de la pesanteur. Small quarto (189 × 157 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked to style with red morocco label. General title printed in red and black, second part with separate title, continuously paginated, both titles with woodcut printer's device, woodcut headpieces and initials, 89 woodcut diagrams in text, a few repeated. Some imperceptible paper restoration to old wormholes in the gutter not affecting text, text generally clean and fresh, an excellent copy. First edition of Huygens's path breaking exposition of his wave or pulse theory of light. Huygens had developed his theory in 1676 and 1677, and completed his Traité in 1678. He read portions of it to the Academy the following year but left it unpublished until publication of Newton's Principia in 1687 and a visit to Newton in 1689 stimulated him to have it printed at last. "Light, according to Huygens, is an irregular series of shock waves which proceeds with very great, but finite, velocity through the ether. This ether consists of uniformly minute, elastic particles compressed very close together. Light, therefore, is not an actual transference of matter but rather of a 'tendency to move', a serial displacement similar to a collision which proceeds through a row of balls ... Huygens therefore concluded that new wave fronts originate around eac … [Click Below for Full Description]

The beautifully detailed map includes views of the North and South poles, and is decorated with allegorical scenes illustrating the seasons, the elements and the zodiac.

Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718) Idea dell Universo Venice, circa 1690 Hand-colored copperplate engraving; two panels 26 ½" x 34 ½" framed(each page separately framed) Condition: Very good, later color Coronelli’s maps and globe gores represent the most complete geographical knowledge of the world in the late 17th century. Coronelli was a cleric and encyclopedist with a particular interest in geography and cartography. He was author of more than 140 titles and produced several hundred maps over his lifetime. As Royal Cartographer to King Louis XIV, Coronelli had complete access to the most current documentation sent from the colonies to the French Academy of Sciences. Accordingly, his maps contain many legends that comment on the most important explorations and discoveries. After serving Louis XIV, Coronelli returned to Venice in 1684 and founded the Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, a geographical society with membership drawn from the aristocracy and church hierarchy. One year later he was appointed Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. This vibrantly colored celestial chart represents an accounting of the major astronomical and astrological theories at the beginning at the end of the 17th century. In the center of the chart is a large celestial planisphere incorporating the rotations of the planets and signs of the zodiac, which is surrounded by 4 blowing wind heads and 5 planetary diagrams. The border is comprised of 28 smaller illustrations of solar and lunar eclipses, terrestrial maps, astrological charts - including a chart indicating which zodiacal signs gover … [Click Below for Full Description]
