Inner boards and facing flyleaf marbled. A few pages have notations in old hand. Bilingual edition: most pages include two columns, Hebrew and Latin. Steinschneider 4222, 2 column 689. Roest 34. Wing F-438. Vinograd. Oxford 4; Geography/Americana. Hebrew and Latin. Translated by Thomas Hyde. Oxford: Sheldon. The author, Abraham ben Mordechai Farissol (1452-1528), a Renaissance Jew, was a contemporary of Christopher Columbus. Farissol served as scribe, educator, cantor in the Ferrara synagogue, communal leader, polemicist and biblical exegete. He was born in Avignon, France, but spent most of his life in Ferrara and Mantua This fascinating work represents Farissol¿s foray into geography. It so interested Thomas Hyde, the Chief Librarian at the Bodleian Library and Professor of Hebrew at Oxford, that he translated it into Latin with the aid of contemporary Jewish scholars and published it in this parallel Hebrew and Latin edition. It is the first Latin edition of this work. It is also the first Hebrew book to describe the discovery of the New World (Chapter 18, 29) and it contains a fascinating discourse on the Ten Lost Tribes (Chapter 14). In addition to being a pioneering work on geography, it is also the first Hebrew text to contain a description of America. Bound with Tractatus Alberti Bobovii [Muslim Liturgy and Religious Practices] (Oxford 1690). Text in Latin and Osmanli (Turkish in Arabic characters), with notes by the Editor, Thomas Hyde. Oxford, Sheldon Theatre: 1691. The Igeret Orkhot Olam is a pioneering work on geography. First published in Ferrara in 1524. Besides its rudimentary description of the "Erets Hadasha" (The New World), the book also contains a valuable reference to the enigmatic personality of David Reubeni (chapter 14). For a thorough account of his Farissol's life and achievements, see David B. Ruderman, The World of a Renaissance Jew: The Life and Thought of Abraham ben Mordecai Farissol (Cincinnati, 1981); see also Andre Neher, Jewish Thought and the Scientific Revolution of the 16th century (Oxford, 1986), pages 122-135; and EJ, volume VI, columns 1184-1185. According to the preface to the second work, present here, but often missing, is another work translated by Hyde, a tract on the religious ceremonies of the Turks. (ESTC R27480; Sabin 60934). Albert Bobowski was a Polish interloper in the Ottoman Empire who, in recognition of his linguistic ability, was given the title "Turgeman Bashi" (Chief interpreter) by Sultan Mohammed IV. Bobowski recorded Muslim practices, including the hajj to Mecca and the Muslim rites of circumcision. Scans are available upon request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

WITH First edition of Edmund Halley's description of his diving bell. Though Halley lodged a patent for his diving bell in 1691, this 1716 Phil Trans paper was his first public description of his improved device. "Halley's paper, 'The Art of Living Underwater,' sets out the problems as he saw them of the bells constructed at the time. Bells were in use in shallow water throughout Europe, and there had been several notable cases of salvage... [but] Halley was keen to improve on the system, which involvwed hauling the diver and his bell all the way to the surface in order to replenish the air inside the container. He proposed a method whereby barrels of fresh air could be lowered to the bell, and emptied into it by means of a hose. Stale air would be let out from the top end of the bell through a stopcock. He tells us that air in an enclosed space loses its 'vivifying spirit,' and wisely states that he will not go into the precise physiological reasons for this, leaving that to the 'curious anatomist, to whom the structure of the lungs is better understood.' But Halley does understand that current models of diving bells contained only a small amount of air, and while it had been proposed to pump fresh air into them from the surface, the strength of the pumps available at the time was not sufficient to overcome the pressure at depths of more than fifteen feet or so. The deeper a bell descended, the smaller the air space that would be left in which to breathe, as the water pressure would compress the air inside the bell. Edmund Halley's bell was bigger and more stable than those of his contemporaries, and he further proposed that a diver might make excursions from the bell wearing a miniature bell on his head. What he suggested was a primitive diving helmet, which would be attached by a leather pipe to the large bell, although even at publication he does not reveal the precise details of this device. Unlike other scientific brains of the age, Halley tested his improved diving bell himself, descending into the waters of Pagham harbor in Sussex in the summer of 1691. According to his own account, Halley sat on a bench suspended across the lower reaches of the bell and remained dry except for his showes. Noting the effects of increased air pressure as the bell descends, he describes the physical sensations produced on the Eustachian tubes during the dive: 'The only inconvenience that attends [the descent] is found in the ears, within which there are cavities opening only outwards, and that by pores so small as not to give admission even to the air itself, unless they be dilated and distended by considerable force. Hence, a pressure begins to be felt on each ear, which by degrees grows painful, like as if a quill were forcibly thrust into the hole of the ear; till at length, the force overcoming the obstacle, that which constrains these pores yields to the pressure, and letting some condensed air slip in, present ease ensues'" (Ecott, Neutral Buoyancy, 19-20).

      FIRST EDITION OF DESAGULIERS AND NEWTON PAPERS ABOUT NEWTON'S THEORY OF LIGHT AND COLOURS. First edition of Edmund Halley's description of his diving bell. The Phil Trans is the oldest continuously published journal of an academy of science. As such, the Phil Trans established the important principles of scientific priority and peer review that have become the central foundations of scientific journals ever since. Works in every field of science are present; in addition to those of Hauksbee, there are papers by Cotes, Newton, Desaguliers, and Taylor. Though Halley lodged a patent for his diving bell in 1691, this 1716 Phil Trans paper was his first public description of his improved device. "Halley's paper, 'The Art of Living Underwater,' sets out the problems as he saw them of the bells constructed at the time. Bells were in use in shallow water throughout Europe, and there had been several notable cases of salvage... [but] Halley was keen to improve on the system, which involvwed hauling the diver and his bell all the way to the surface in order to replenish the air inside the container. He proposed a method whereby barrels of fresh air could be lowered to the bell, and emptied into it by means of a hose. Stale air would be let out from the top end of the bell through a stopcock. He tells us that air in an enclosed space loses its 'vivifying spirit,' and wisely states that he will not go into the precise physiological reasons for this, leaving that to the 'curious anatomist, to whom the structure of the lungs is better understood.' But Halley does understand that current models of diving bells contained only a small amount of air, and while it had been proposed to pump fresh air into them from the surface, the strength of the pumps available at the time was not sufficient to overcome the pressure at depths of more than fifteen feet or so. The deeper a bell descended, the smaller the air space that would be left in which to breathe, as the water pressure would compress the air inside the bell. Edmund Halley's bell was bigger and more stable than those of his contemporaries, and he further proposed that a diver might make excursions from the bell wearing a miniature bell on his head. What he suggested was a primitive diving helmet, which would be attached by a leather pipe to the large bell, although even at publication he does not reveal the precise details of this device. Unlike other scientific brains of the age, Halley tested his improved diving bell himself, descending into the waters of Pagham harbor in Sussex in the summer of 1691. According to his own account, Halley sat on a bench suspended across the lower reaches of the bell and remained dry except for his showes. Noting the effects of increased air pressure as the bell descends, he describes the physical sensations produced on the Eustachian tubes during the dive: 'The only inconvenience that attends [the descent] is found in the ears, within which there are cavities opening only outwards, and that by pores so small as not to give admission even to the air itself, unless they be dilated and distended by considerable force. Hence, a pressure begins to be felt on each ear, which by degrees grows painful, like as if a quill were forcibly thrust into the hole of the ear; till at length, the force overcoming the obstacle, that which constrains these pores yields to the pressure, and letting some condensed air slip in, present ease ensues'" (Ecott, Neutral Buoyancy, 19-20). ALSO INCLUDED are two other Halley papers, both on the astronomical phenomena of objects in the sky that produce light but do not contain a sun 'nebulae'. ALSO INCLUDED is Cotes' "Logometria Auctore Rogero Cotes," his only paper and the one in which he provides the first proof of the relation between exponential function to trigonometric functions -- the identity now known as Euler's formula. ALSO INCLUDED is Taylor's important deduction that "at the distance of nine feet, the power alters faster, than as the cubes of the distances, whereas at the distances of one and two feet, the power alters nearly as their square." "Several important early diciples of Newton, particularly his assistants Francis Hauksbee and Brook Taylor... accordingly undertook to obtain by experiment a magnetic analog to the law of gravitation.

        Copia de carta escrita a un caballero de la ciudad de los Reyes, dandole cuenta de la muerte del Excelentisimo Señor Duque de la Palata, en la ciudad de Portovelo, Viernes Santo 13 de Abril de 1691

      News from Portobello of the death of a Peruvian Viceroy, printed in Lima. 1691. San Felipe de Portovelo. In folio (290 mm x 190 mm). 2 ff. Unbound. Upper right corner with damp, fold traces, else good.First edition. A rare imprint printed in Lima with news of the death of Melchor Nvarra y Rocafull, more widely known as the Duque de la Palata (1626 ?" 1691); the letter is written in the form of praise, by an anonymous party and addressed to a gentleman from Lima, whom in turn had it printed. It describes the process of his sickness and attempts to cure him, prior to ecclesiastical preparation for his death, at three thirty in the afternoon, April 13, 1691. Melchor de Navarra was a military officer and Spanish colonial officer; he reached the pinnacle of his career in the Indies when appointed Viceroy of Peru (1681 ?" 1689). During his reign he fought off the pirate fleet lead by Edward Davis who had previously sacked small town on the coast, and reestablished the Casa de Moneda. He stayed in Lima until 1691 when he sailed back to Spain, stopping at Portobello (Panama), where he died of sickness.It ends with a short note referring to the deeds and achievement during the colonial administration, naming his struggle against piracy in the Pacific ports and active administration.

        Planisphero Del Mondo Vecchio Maior Del Mondo Nuovo Descritto

      Venice: circa, 1691. Engraved map, 450 x 615 mm.; some small repairs, small section of restoration along the old central fold near the Persian Gulf, but in overall good condition, framed. Coronelli map with Tasman details. A very fine map of the Eastern Hemisphere by the great Venetian cartographer Coronelli, which combines 'the most up-to-date cartographic information with elegant engraving and restrained accompanying decoration' (Shirley). Coronelli (1650-1718) was Italy's finest seventeenth-century cartographer, famous for a pair of globes he made for Louis XIV. He was a member of the Franciscan order, of which he became general, and founder of the learned society Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti. Coronelli is highly regarded for his tireless efforts of cartographic research. He was involved in the production of some four hundred maps all of which he drew, engraved and printed. This Eastern Hemisphere map features a decorative coat-of-arms and descriptive text with astrological symbols at the side. Australia is reasonably well delineated with the discoveries of Tasman's second voyage taken into account. Notes refer to the discoveries of "Terra de Concordia" (1618), "Terra d'Edels" (1619), "Terra de Lewin" (1622), "Terra di Pietro Nuyts" (1627), as well as the island of "San Francisco" (off the south coast, mapped by Nuyts and Thijssen), as well as generally the "Terra di Diemen" and "Terra di Arnhem". Also marked are the "Rocher de Frederic Outman" (Houtmans Abrolhos, referring to the shoals on which the Batavia wrecked in 1629) and, just to their south, "Isole d'Edels Turtel Duyf" (the Turtle Dove Shoals, mapped by Hessel Gerritsz in 1627). A massive "Terra Australe Incognita" dominates the bottom of the map, but is here little more than a vaguely suggested outline with, to the south-west of Cape Horn, the "Terra de Pappagalli, creduta fauolosa" - the land of the Parrots, thought to be fabulous.

        King Arthur: Or, The British Worthy. A Dramatck Opera,

      Printed for Jacob Tonson, London 1691 - 4to. (14),51,(1)pp. The half-title is present with its advertisement on the reverse. Also present are the Prologue and the Epilogue. The earliest copies lack these leaves, but an unsigned leaf was inserted after A4 headed "Prologue to the OPERA, Spoken by Mr. Betterton." H2 was cancelled and a new leaf headed [H2v]: The EPILOGUE. Spoken by Mrs. Bracegirdle, the word FINIS being transferred from H2 to H2v. The text block shows some aging and light staining; it is finely bound in full crushed crimson morocco, unsigned but reminiscent of Sangorski: Spine in six compartments with raised bands, intricately tooled in gilt; gilt rules on the boards; gilt inner dentelles; endpapers of crimson Victorian cloth in a linen effect. Top edge gilt. The text has been bulked out with several pages of blank paper in the rear. A nice copy of the scarce first edition in a fine binding.Dryden's 'King Arthur' owes little to the Arthur of history of romance. The play centers around a battle with Oswald, a Saxon leader, which Arthur wins. He also wing the faire but blind Emmeline, whose sight is restored by Merlin. The play was first performed at the Queen's Theatre with music by Purcell, and marks the likely beginning of a rekindling of interest in King Arthur and other things monarchial after their suppression by Cromwell and the Commonwealth.Macdonald, 91 a ii.
