        The General History of the Air, Designed and Begun by the Honble Robert Boyle Esq.

      London: Awnsham and John Churchill, 1692. First edition of this rare posthumously published work on the nature of gases, seen through the press by Boyle’s friend John Locke and containing some of Locke’s own early meteorological observations. The product of Boyle’s life’s work on gases, the <em>General History</em> “is of special interest in that it sums up his ultimate conclusions” (Fulton, <em>Boyle</em>, p. 133). The work is of considerable importance in the history of science – not only did the views Boyle expressed here become the basis for the phlogiston theory of combustion, it also contained the first clear statement of the kinetic theory of gases, almost half a century before Daniel Bernoulli’s <em>Hydrodynamica</em>. Only two other copies of Boyle’s work have appeared at auction in the past 25 years.</p> <p> </p> <p>“The book begins with an excellent definition which deserves to be quoted (p. 1): ‘By the <em>Air </em>I commonly understand that thin, fluid, diaphanous, compressible and dilatable Body in which we breath, and wherein we move, which envelops the Earth on all sides to a great height above the highest Mountains; but yet is so different from the <em>Aether </em>[or<em> Vacuum</em>] in the intermundane or interplanetary Spaces, that it refracts the Rays of the Moon and other remoter Luminaries.’ He then discusses the ingredients of the air, prefacing his remarks by the following prescient sentence (p. 3): 'I much suspect there lies yet something concealed in it, that needs a further Discovery, which may perhaps be made by further Trials,’ It seems then not improbable to me', he goes on to say, ‘that our <em>Atmospherical </em>Air may consist of <em>three </em>differing kinds of Corpuscles'” (Fulton, p. 134).</p> <p>“Although [his] explanation of the composition of the air is crude, it had the effect of directing attention to the fact that the atmosphere is not ‘mere nothingness,’ but a ‘something’ with a definite composition, and this served as a good foundation for future investigations. To be sure, Boyle was neither the first nor the only chemist who had suspected that the air was a mixture of gases, and not a simple one … but Boyle’s work was better known, and in its effect probably more important. But with all Boyle’s explanations of the composition of air, he still believed that there was an inexplicable something, a ‘vital substance,’ which he was unable to fathom, and which later became the basis of Stahl’s phlogiston theory. Commenting on this mysterious substance, Boyle says: ‘The difficulty we find in keeping flame and fire alive, though but for a little time, without air, renders it suspicious that there be dispersed through the rest of the atmosphere some odd substance, either of a solar, astral, or other foreign nature; on account of which the air is so necessary to the substance of flame.’ It was this idea that attracted the attention of George Ernst Stahl (1660-1734), a professor of medicine in the University of Halle, who later founded his new theory upon it” (H. S. Williams, <em>A History of Science</em>, Vol. 4, p. 7).</p> <p>“There follows a most remarkable passage on the ‘Structure’ of the air, which amounts virtually to a statement of the modern kinetic theory of gases. This is what he says (pp. 6-7): “Only I shall here intimate that though the Elastical Air seem to continue such, rather upon the score of its Structure, than any external Agitation; yet Heat, that is a kind of Motion, may make the agitated Particles strive to recede further and further from the Centers of their Motions, and to beat off those, that would hinder the freedom of their Gyrations and so very much add to the endeavour of such Air to expand it self. And I will allow you to suspect, that there may be sometimes mingled with the Particles that are springy, upon the newly mentioned Account, some others, that owe their Elasticity, not so much to their Structure, as their Motion, which, variously brandishing them and whirling them about, may make them beat off the neighbouring Particles, and thereby promote an expansive Endeavour in the Air, whereof they are Parts’” (Fulton, p. 134).</p> <p>“The kinetic theory of gases originated in the ancient idea that matter consists of tiny invisible atoms in rapid motion. In the 17th century this idea was revived and used to explain, among other phenomena, the properties of gases. The British chemist and physicist Robert Boyle (1627-1691), building on the work of several other 17th-century scientists, showed that air is ‘elastic’: it resists compression and expands to fill the available space … Boyle mentioned two alternative atomistic explanations for air pressure: (1) air is composed of particles that repel each other, like coiled-up pieces of wool or springs; (2) air is composed of whirling particles that push each other away by impacts. The first hypothesis was taken up by Isaac Newton, who proved mathematically that if air pressure is due to the repulsion of neighboring particles, then the repulsive force must be inversely proportional to their distances. The second hypothesis, which Boyle associated with Descartes’ etherial vortices, lacked a quantitative foundation in the 17th century, though it gained qualitative support from the common idea that heat is related to atomic motion and the observation that air pressure increases with temperature” (Brush, <em>History of the Kinetic Theory of Gases</em>, p. 2).</p> <p>“The later parts of the book are taken up with discussions of clouds, mist, wind, and an important series of barometric observations based on ‘A Register kept by Mr (John) Locke, in Oxford’ (from June 1666 to June 1683). Locke recorded, among other things, the state of the Oxford sky, and on 4 September 1666 he characterized it as ‘Dim reddish Sunshine’. In a footnote Locke explains the observation as follows (p. 106): ‘This unusual colour of the Air, which without a Cloud appearing, made the Sun-beams of a strange red dim Light, was very remarkable. We had then heard nothing of the Fire of <em>London: </em>But it appeared afterwards to be the Smoak of <em>London </em>then burning, which driven this way by an Easterly Wind, caused this odd Phenomenon.’ A long and interesting letter from Locke, dated ‘Ch. Ch. 5 May, 1666’, relating to the barometer, is reprinted on pages 137-41” (Fulton, p. 134).</p> <p>Locke was uniquely well placed to see Boyle’s book through the press: not only had he acted as informal executor after his mentor’s death in December 1691, he had also made copies of some of Boyle’s papers, thereby compensating for the loss of some of the originals. The project to compose a comprehensive history of the air “began in the early 1660s when Boyle set out a set of Heads or Titles as a guideline for the collaborative gathering of information. No copy of this printed list survives, but there are likely responses to it among Boyle’s papers, some from the mid-1660s. Locke’s letter of May 5, 1666, may have been one of these, since as well as including a barometric measurement, it recounts the effects of water in mineral streams mixed with air from the lead mines in Somerset. From the published work it is evident that Boyle’s request had stimulated the participation of a range of observers – friends, travelers, virtuosi, and even royalty (the duke of York, in titles XX and XLVI) – thus marking it as a collaborative project of the Baconian kind … However, the incoming papers do not seem to have been assigned to such Heads, and several manuscripts from the early 1680s reveal attempts at settling on a set of ‘Titles’ under which various letters and papers could be published. One of the Boyle manuscripts Locke copied was ‘The Titles of the Naturall and Experimentall History of the Air’. This entry is dated 1682, and it was probably about this time that Locke began to help Boyle assemble the material. In preparing the text, he also added information from his own sources, including some gathered in Holland” (Yeo, <em>Notebooks, English Virtuosi, and Early Modern Science</em>, p. 209).</p> <p>Wing B3981; Fulton, <em>Boyle,</em> 194; Christophersen, <em>John Locke</em>, p. 13; Harrison & Laslett, <em>Library of John Locke</em>, 460. 4to (190 x 157 mm), pp. xii, 259, [1], woodcut diagrams in the margins of pp. 133 & 135.

        DER VERSCHMACHTENDEN SEELEN, HERTZENS TROST und THEIL: Aus den Sonn-und Fest-Tags-Evangelien, Durchs gantze Jahr [etc.]

      Frankfurt, Germany: Friedrich Eichorns.. Bound in period full leather over wooden boards. ND [1692]. hb. Thick 4to, pp. 1072, [16] . A German book of days, and prayers. The title translates as: "To the Sweltering Souls / Hearts Consolation and part/ out of the [?] and / festive days gospels / Through the entire year / and several sayings (or proverbs) for/ the High Festive Days and Afternoons / Next to two preachings at the End / for Preparation [?] Holy Communion and blissful death / introduced / In which everything is briefly explained / and directly to be used for edification". Title page in red and black letters. The text is in the Suelterlin form of German, and the pagination is continuous to page 1,072, when follows sixteen pages of unnumbered text, ending abruptly, thus lacking following pages, the quantity unknown. The only copy of this title, shown on WorldCat, is being held by the university library in Halle / Saale, Germany, and indicates a pagination of [4], [588]. Our copy is bound in full brown leather, with evidence of some very early repairs. Both the binding, and the edges of the pages, show considerable wear. Preliminary and end pages, in particular, are chipped at edges, and somewhat darkened. Front blanks, and inside rear board contain hand-written notes, in various early hands, describing what appears to be a family genealogy. The binding is weak but intact, and the text may be read without undue trepidation. A very scarce work. .

        Some Considerations of the Consequences of the Lowering of Interest

      1692 - [LOCKE, John]. Some Considerations of the Consequences of the Lowering of Interest, and Raising the Value of Money. London: Printed for Ansham and John Churchill, 1692. Small octavo (3-3/4 by 6 inches), 19th-century three-quarter brown calf gilt, raised bands, brown morocco spine labels, marbled boards. $15,000.First edition of Locke's important economic tract, "one of the scarcest and also one of the most important of his writings on mercantile and monetary theory"&#157; (AMEX Bank Library 269).After the Revolution Settlement of 1688, the question of lowering the rate of interest was topical: many London merchants wanted cheap money and Locke was thus prompted to look at his "&#152;old essay' and prepare it for publication under the title Some Considerations of the Consequences of the Lowering of Interest. "Locke controverts the view of Sir Josiah Child that the rate of interest could be fixed at a low rate, say 4 percent, by law. Locke, though ready to approve of a legal rate of 6 percent, argues that "&#152;generally speaking' the price of the hire of money cannot be fixed by law; and that any attempt to fix the rate of interest below "&#152;the true and natural value' can only harass trade and is sure to be defeated by the devices of expert traders"&#157; (Palgrave II:632-33). "The reasoning exhibited". gave Locke a permanent place among the founders of political economy. Locke showed conclusively the fallacy of [Secretary to the Treasury] Lowndes' schemes for altering the standard, and the bill passed in April 1696 for the restoration of the coinage was in substantial accordance with Locke's principles"&#157; (AMEX Bank Library 271). In Locke's "magnificently hard-money discussion,"&#157; he "superbly put his finger on the supposed function of the Mint: to maintain the currency as purely a definition, or standard of weight of silver"&#157; (Rothbard, Economic Thought befoe Adam Smith, 321-22). "Locke's writings on money and his arguments against devaluation have almost been regarded as gospels for "&#152;sound money' men"&#157; (Li, Great Recoinage of 1696-9:104-5). The first edition of Some Considerations was published anonymously, but subsequent editions bore Locke's name. This copy Yolton State A, bound without page 193 (errata). Attig 494. Kress 1792.

        A Brief Disquisition of the Law of Nature,

      London: Richard Baldwin,, 1692. According to the Principles and Method laid down in the Reverend Dr. Cumberland's (now Lord Bishop of Peterborough's) Latin Treatise on that Subject. As also His Confutations of Mr. Hobbs's Principles put into another Method. With the Right Reverend Author's Approbation. Octavo (180 x 108 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, red morocco label, raised bands, twin blind fillet to boards, broad flower-head and leaf spray roll along joints in blind, edges speckled red. Bound with the imprimantur and the two leaves of ads at rear but without the errata leaf. Small ownership signature to front pastedown. Short splits to heads of joints, two wormholes to tails of joints, closed tear to fore margin of signature O1, not affecting text, occasional light spotting. A very good copy. First edition, possibly early state as this copy does not include the errata leaf and leaf f1 is not cancelled and replaced with a bifolium, as is the case for the copy collated in ESTC. A Brief Disquisition of the Law of Nature is an abridged translation by political theorist and historian James Tyrrell of Richard Cumberland's treatise heralding English utilitarianism, De legibus naturae disquisitio philosophica (1671). Tyrrell's adaptation juxtaposed Cumberland's theories with John Locke's and further developed Cumberland's criticism of Thomas Hobbes. De legibus naturae argued that "science and reason could support the notion of a divinely ordained natural law, rather than subverting it as the work of Hobbes appeared to suggest" (ODNB). Cumberland's discussion has been described as "distinctly 'modern' because he arrives at his conclusions without discussion of scripture, and he generates ethical norms without a discussion of the afterlife. He also deployed recent scientific discoveries to back up his ethical claims and discussed morality in mathematical terms" (ibid.) Tyrrell was one of Locke's closest friends and his adaptation "drew upon Locke's unpublished 'Essays on the law of nature', and locates Locke in the modern school of natural jurisprudence inaugurated by Hugo Grotius; he sees this tradition as an instrument against Hobbist Epicureanism. Tyrrell's central axiom is that natural law is reducible to the duty to seek the common good of rational beings" (ibid.)

        Réflexions sur la Réponse de M. l'abbé de la Trappe Au Traité des Etudes monastiques. Par Dom Jean Mabillon, Religieux Benedictin de la Congregation de S. Maur.

      A Paris chez Charles Robustel 1692 In-4 de (8)-405 pp., veau brun, dos orné à nerfs (reliure de l'époque). « Dans son ouvrage de 1683, intitulé Sainteté et Devoirs de la vie monastique, Rancé, abbé de La Trappe, s'en prend à la vie menée dans d'autres monastères et surtout à celle des moines bénédictins, en rappelant que la règle de Saint Benoît prescrit aux moines le travail manuel et la lecture pieuse, ce qui excluerait l'étude, qui est, selon Rancé, contraire à l'humilité. Suit une série de commentaires, de réponses et de lettres, qui polémiquent autour du rôle de l'étude, de la science et de l'ignorance dans la vie monastique. Les interventions les plus marquantes sont celles de Mabillon, membre de la Congrégation de Saint Maur à Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Grand savant, Mabillon entreprend en 1691-1692 de réfuter la position de Rancé selon laquelle l'ignorance serait une qualité nécessaire à un moine, et de défendre l'étude et surtout l'érudition mauriste, dont ses propres travaux, notamment ceux sur la diplomatique, ont marqué un tournant important dans la discipline de l'histoire. Si les interventions de Mabillon sont les seules auxquelles Rancé a directement répondu, c'est sans doute parce que son ouvrage de 1683 visait l'érudition mauriste en particulier » (Ket). Bel exemplaire.

        Historia Salisburgensis, hoc est, vitae episcoporum, et archiepiscorum Salisburgensium, nec non Abbatum monasterii S. Petri. Salzburg, Johann Baptist Mayr, 1692.

      1692. Folio (212 x 320 mm). (40), 1278, (56) pp. With engr. frontispiece, engr. folding map, and 24 (mostly folding) engr. plates. Contemp. blindstamped pigskin; ms. spine label (c. 1718). First edition, first printing of Mezger's monumental chronicle of Salzburg, covering the years 582-1687. This copy, from the library of the Munich court librarian Johann Caspar Kandler, is the only known complete copy, containing more plates than the copy in the Austrian National Library. Of the five copies auctioned during the last two decades, one contained a mere 5 engravings, the others none at all. As compared with the list of plates as provided by Nebehay/Wagner, our copy wants two triumphal arches (and another engraving present only in copies issued after 1699), but instead has two other plates not listed there: a different arch and the martyrdom of St Maximus. "Die Kupferstichbeilagen in den verschiedenen Exemplaren variieren sehr stark. Alle 25 Tafeln konnten bisher noch in keinem Exemplar festgestellt werden. Insbesondere die Tafel, die eine Datierung von 1699 aufweist, kann selbstverständlich nur in Exemplaren, die nach dieser Zeit herausgegeben wurden, vorkommen" (Nebehay/W.). Entirely complete, with a distinct waterstain throughout; loss of corner to half-title (not touching text); corner to f. Zzz2 remargined. Ms. ownership "Ex libris Joannis Kandleri Monacensis" (dated 1706) on pastedown and half-title. The Bavarian scholar Johann Kaspar Kandler (1644-1718), son of an innkeeper and father of the important Augustinian friar Agnellus Kandler (1692-1745), first served as secretary to the Bavarian delegation at the Regensburg Imperial Diet; he then became Privy Registrator in Munich, where he was also appointed court librarian. After his death, the volume was transferred to the library of the Munich Augustinians (their ms. ownership, dated 1718, on title page). The monastery, secularized in 1803, now houses the Munich Police Headquarters. VD 17, 12:127505M. Nebehay/Wagner II, 414. Graesse IV, 514. Jöcher III, 1573. Wetzer/Welte VIII, 1475.

Come indicato nel cartiglio, questo lavoro è basato sulla mappa dell'Africa di Nicolas Sanson del 1668, stampata su due fogli. Rispetto a quest'ultima, le coste africane, in particolare quelle subequatoriali, appaiono più accurate, e anche l'idrografia è modificata e arricchita. Jaillot sposò la figlia di Sanson ed ereditò la tipografia di famiglia, dedicandosi all'attività cartografica. Le sue lastre furono poi vendute e pubblicate da Pierre Mortier ad Amstredam. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in buono stato di conservazione. Fine map of Africa with a decorative title and scale cartouche.

        Voyage en divers États d'Europe et d'Asie entrepris pour découvrir un nouveau chemin à la Chine

      Claude Barbin, Jean Boudot, George & Louis Josse, Paris 1692 - title+[pictorial plate]+xvii+folding map+406+xxiv pages with engraved initials and vignettes, and two additional plates and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7 1/2") bound in full leather with five raised bands and lettering in gilt and decorative vignettes. First edition. Philippe Avril was a Jesuit explorer of the Far East and professor of philosophy and mathematics at Paris when he was dispatched to the Jesuit missions of China. He was summoned by the Jesuit missions and sent as a Jesuit to the missions in China. Following the instructions of Ferdinand Verbiest, another Jesuit, then at Peking suggested that he attempted an overland journey which he ended up traveling for six years through Kurdistan, Armenia, Astrakhan, Persia, and other countries of eastern Asia arriving at Moscow. He now traveled to Grodno in Poland, where he renewed an acquaintance with Count de Syri, who had formerly befriended him at Astrakham. The count at the suggestion of Avril, applied ot the French government for the appointment of ambassador from the King of France to the Emperor of China. He succeed in obtaining the appointment and it was arranged that Avril should accompany him. They set out to Moscow together. An accident detained Avril and the count arrived at Moscow days before his companion. On the arrival of Avril, he received the intelligence that the Russian authorities and compelled the count to proceed and was refused permission to over take him. Avril proceeded to Warsaw, and through the assistance of Prince Jablonowksi to reach Constantinople by way of Moldavia.
