Cotes, Roger WITH Halley, Edmund [Halleio] WITH Cotes, Roger WITH Newton, Isaac; Desaguliers, J. T. WITH Taylor, Brook
Royal Society, London, 1691. FIRST EDITION of Roger 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. 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 Halley, Newton, Desaguliers, and Taylor. ALSO INCLUDED: 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Halley, Edmund [Halleio] WITH Cotes, Roger WITH Newton, Isaac; Desaguliers, J. T. WITH Taylor, Brook
London: Royal Society, 1691. FIRST EDITION of Roger 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. 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 Halley, Newton, Desaguliers, and Taylor. ALSO INCLUDED: 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.

[TASMAN] CORONELLI, Vincenzo
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 the … [Click Below for Full Description]

HAPPEL, Eberhard Werner
Hamburg: Thomas von Wiering, 1683-, 1691. A few plates trimmed, some browning and spotting, but generally a very attractive set.. Five volumes, quarto, 196 engraved and woodcut plates (some folding), title-pages printed in red and black, woodcut textual illustrations and initials; bound in contemporary vellum, titles lettered on spine. A fine set of Happel's remarkable book of wonders, an endlessly informative series filled with the newest and most sensational news from around the world: 'a miscellany of popular information, containing short notices of curious phenomena in every part of the globe, as well as of curious historical events. The notices of American matters are numerous in all the volumes' (Sabin).Among the many wonders here described, the double-page map of the world showing ocean currents is particularly notable. Showing the entire globe from Greenland in the north to the "Süd-Land", this map is a good instance of popular interest in the mapping of the world, including the putative outline of Terra Australis: 'an important early representation of oceanographic phenomena. It illustrates Kircher's idea that there are chasms in the depths of the sea into which the water flows, then percolates through the earth and up to the tops of mountains' (National Maritime Museum, Greenwich).Happel (1647-1690) was a writer and journalist, and one of the most-widely read novelists of his time. His so-called "endless novels" with their picaresque attention to detail relied on his omnivorous fascination with social history, scientific discovery, and oth … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dryden, John
London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, 1691. First edition. 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.

No general title page, no printer or date, apparently a surreptitious edition, attractive engraved title signed C. Decker; near miniature, binding measures 3 7/8" x 2 1/4". Old signature crossed out on verso of first section title with browning, unmarked internally otherwise. Some editions of the same material (lacking the final section) appear with a title dated 1590 (though presumed to be later), but this collection can be dated to ca. 1691 when the spurious fragment of the Satyricon "found" during the sacking of Belgrade in 1688 was first published. It appears here in the final section. The fragment was the source of much debate, even Leibniz weighed in, and though found to be fallacious, was reprinted and included in editions into the 20th century. 58, 87, [1], 502, (39) p.
