        Dioptrica nova. A Treatise of Dioptricks, In Two Parts. Wherein the Various Effects and Appearances of Spherick Glasses, both Convex and Concave, Single and Combined, in Telescopes and Microscopes, Together with Their Usefulness in many Concerns of humane life, are explained.

      London: for Benj. Tooke, 1692 - Quarto (240 × 183 mm). Contemporary blind-panelled calf, sometime rebacked with gilt spine, red morocco label, relined to style. Short closed tear at foot of imprimatur leaf with old repair, wormhole (mostly single, becoming double) at lower outer corner through to quire O, mostly beyond the text, very occasional minor damping at fore-edge margin, 4 plates to the appendix on browned paper; overall, a very good copy. Complete with initial imprimatur leaf and final advert leaf. 43 engraved plates (most folded), diagrams, tables in the text. First edition of the first treatise on the subject to be published in English. Molyneux, who has a claim to be considered the founder of modern science in Ireland, based his book on his discourses to the Dublin Philosophical Society delivered between 1683 and 1686 on the illusion of the different magnitudes of the horizontal and meridional moon, on double vision, and on why four glasses in a telescope show objects erect. The first part presents 59 propositions on geometrical optics, providing a thorough treatment of the nature of sight and the properties of lenses, telescopes, microscopes, and magic lanterns. The second part consists of a series of chapters on topics including refraction and light, glasses for defective eyes, and telescopic instruments. A second edition was published in 1709. The manuscript was seen through the press by Edmond Halley, who allowed Molyneux to include as an appendix his theorem for finding the focus of a spherical lens. Although Molyneux also acknowledged his obligation to John Flamsteed, who had lent him instruments, and gave the solutions of Flamsteed for certain propositions in addition to his own, the publication led to their falling out, probably because Flamsteed resented that the manuscript was not shown to him before publication but entrusted instead to his rival Halley. The book brought Molyneux to the attention of Leibniz – whose refutation of Descartes's explanation of refraction and doctrine of final causes were both warmly approved by Molyneux – and Huygens, then the foremost authority on optics. It also led to a key friendship with John Locke, who took Molyneux's criticisms and suggestions into account in the second edition of his Essay on Human Understanding, notably "the so-called Molyneux problem, included as an addition to the chapter on perception. The question posed was whether a blind man who had learned to distinguish by touch between a cube and a sphere would be able, on gaining his sight, to differentiate the objects without touching them. Molyneux thought not and Locke agreed. The problem had profound philosophical implications and became a key topic in British philosophy" (ODNB). The first edition is notably rare in commerce, having appeared at auction only twice in the past 46 years. Taylor, Mathematical Practitioners, 489; Wing M2405.

        Xantung, e Peking Provincie della China, divise nelle sue Reggioni e dedicate a Mons.re Ill.mo Rev.mo Severoli ?" Coronelli

      CORONELLIIncisione su rame all'acquaforte e bulino. Foglio unico di due incollati insieme di mm 602 x 471. Carta di filo senza tinte, porosa e spessa. Filigrana non rilevata. Ottimo foglio a grandi margini, in carta candida e forte. Lievemente arrossata la piega centrale. Titolo in alto a destra entro ricco cartiglio. Toponimi e descrizioni geografiche nella pianta. Proveniente da: "Corso Geografico Universale", Venezia 1692. Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (August 16, 1650 - December 9, 1718) was a Franciscan monk, an Italian cosmographer, publisher and encyclopedist known in particular for his globes. Born in Venice, Coronelli became a Minorite Friar and doctor of Theology at the Collegium San Bonaventura in Rome. In 1678 Coronelli created two globes for the Duke of Parma. These globes had a diameter of c. 175cm and were finely crafted. This drew the attention of the French ambassador, César d'Estrées, who subsequently invited Coronelli to Paris. Coronelli moved to the French capital in 1681, where he lived for two years. Coronelli was commissioned by the cardinal d'Estrées to produce two globes, one of the earth, the other of the heavens, for king Louis XIV. These globes measuring 384cm in diameter are presently relocated to their new place, Bibliothèque nationale François Mitterrand in Paris. Due to his renown he worked in various European countries in the following years, permanently returning to Venice in 1705. In Venice he started his own cosmographical project and published the volumes of Atlante Veneto. In his home city he founded the very first geographical society, the Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti. He also held the position of Cosmographer of the Republic of Venice. Later six volumes of the Biblioteca Universale Sacro-Profana were published by Coronelli. This was the first encyclopedia to be ordered alphabetically. Coronelli died at the age of 68 in Vienna, having created hundreds of maps in his lifetime. Original globes by Coronelli are today located in several collections. Pairs of his most famous large (c. 110 cm diameter) globes are e.g. in the Biblioteca Marciana in Venice, in the National Library of Austria and in the Globe Museum in Vienna, in the library of Stift Melk, as well as in Trier, Prague, Paris, London, Washington D.C.. Having been restored and completed, another 1688 terrestrial globe is displayed at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. The International Coronelli Society for the Study of Globes, founded 1952 in Vienna, is named in Coronelli's honour. Ermanno Armao (1944) p. 108 e seguenti.

        Poems on several occasions, and translations wherein the first and second books of Virgil's íneis are attempted, in English

      Printed: 1692. 1664 -1713 Octavo, 4.25 x 6.5 inches . First edition of the author's only book. A-I8, K6 (K6 is an advert for books sold by Charles Harper.) This copy is bound in original gilt calf which has been rebacked, The text is uniformly age toned. The author's only book, published when he was a 26-year-old fellow of New College, Oxford; Fletcher resigned this position upon his marriage in 1702, and became an undermaster at Winchester College, where he remained until the year before his death in 1713. The translation of Virgil is partly in heroic couples, and partly in blank verse; there are also translations of an epode of Horace and a fragment from Boethius, along with a number of occasional poems. English poet and priest of the Church of England. He was born in Avington, Hampshire, received his B.A., M.A., and D.D. from New College, Oxford. He received the doctorate in 1707. He was the parish priest for Fairfield Somerset in 1694 and moved on to be the prebendary in Wells Cathedral from 1696 until his death. He became a fellow of Winchester College in 1711 and was buried in Westminster Cathedral upon his death at age 47. His sole contribution to English letters was an eight volume Poems on several occasions and translations, wherein the first and second books of Virgil's 'AEneis' are attempted in 1692. The collection contained mostly juvenalia, its dedication said, and a good number of school exercises. His translation of the first book of Aeneid was in heroic couplets, while part of the translation of book 2 was in blank verse. The volumes also contained a partial translation of Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy and the second epode of Horace.

        Atlas Nouveau, contenant toutes les parties du Monde, ou sont exactement remarqués les empires, monarchies, royaumes, estats, republiques & peuples qui sy [sic.] trouvent à present. Par le Sr. Sanson ... Presenté ... par ... Hubert Iaillot

      "Paris" [but Amsterdam]: "chez Hubert Jaillot" [but Pierre Mortier], 1692- 1693. 3 volumes, folio. (25 3/4 x 19 3/4 inches). Letterpress title printed in red and black with small engraved vignette, 1 folding letterpress text leaf "Les vies des anciens solitaires...". Hand-coloured engraved title, engraved frontispiece "Table des Cartes" with hand- coloured border surrrounding an onlaid central letterpress panel listing the contents, 94 only (of 100) engraved maps hand-colored in outline (1 folding, 69 double-page), 96 leaves of engraved text only (of 98, each printed recto only). (Lacking map numbers '3' "La Mappe-Monde"; '5' "L'Europe"; '11' " L'Amerique Septentrionale"; '42' "L'Espagne"; '46' "L'Italie"; '66' "Le Cours du Danube"; and 2 engraved text leaves, engraved frontispiece creased and with small tears to creases, 2 maps torn at folds). Contemporary light brown speckled calf, covers with gilt double- fillet border, spines in nine compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by gilt fillets, red/brown morocco lettering-pieces in the second, third and fourth compartments. A very fine copy, with excellent contemporary hand colouring, of a variant not recorded by the standard bibliographies One of the most important figures in French cartography, Nicolas Sanson initiated the great school of French geographers. Born in Abbeville in 1600, Sanson established his first printing house in Paris in 1638. He soon became geographer to the king, establishing himself as one of the most influential cartographers on the continent. He was succeeded by his sons, Adrien, and Guillaume, and by his son-in-law Pierre Duval, who continued to publish a wealth of maps using Sanson's name. At the close of the seventeenth century, Sanson's plates were purchased by the influential cartographer Alexis Hubert Jaillot, who joined Sanson's heirs in the production of this atlas, which first appeared in 1681 (but with less than half the number of maps here). Jaillot had the elder Sanson's maps redrawn on a larger scale and with fresh embellishments on the finest paper. Pierre (or Pieter) Mortier was born in Amsterdam, but lived and worked in Paris for various cartographical publishers from 1681 to 1685, making the connections and learning the skills that were to stand him in good stead on his return to Amsterdam. He specialised in French books and according to Koeman "His knowledge of modern French cartography led him to copying the maps by Sanson, published by Jaillot". Maps of other cartographers frequently appear bound in this work; this copy contains Herman Moll's "A New Map Containing The Towns, Gentlemens Houses, Villages, and other Remarks Round London". This example seems to be an intermediate issue falling somewhere between Pastoreau 1D (same date on title, with 99 maps and 27 leaves of views and plans, but only 72 engraved text leaves) and Pastoreau 1E (with no views and plans, 99 engraved text leaves , but with 111 maps and 17pp. of letterpress text). Cf. Pastoreau 1 D; Tooley Maps and Map-Makers pp.40-41.

        Archaeologiae Philosophicae: sive doctrina antiqua de reum originibus. Libri duo

      London: Typis R.N. Impensis Gualt. Kettilby.. 1692 First edition of Burnet's second major work, an early attempt to reconcile the formation of the earth with the Biblical account of creation. . Contemporary calf with covers ruled in blind. . Small quarto. Text engraving on p. 181. Separate title-page for Book II. Dedication to William III. Joints cracking but cords sound. Several marginal tears and dog-ears, small wormhole at lower margin in gatherings K and L. Endpapers ruled in red, with some contemporary ink notes, additional ink notes in some margins, in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. A very good, unsophisticated copy. Burnet (1635-1715), who received his BA at Clare College, Cambridge, and his MA at Christ's College, Cambridge, was Master of Charterhouse and Clerk of the Closet to William III.. He first espoused his theory of the earth's creation in The Theory of the Earth, published in Latin as Telljuris Theori Sacra in 1681, and in English in 1684. He suggested that the earth was a hollow sphere, with most of the water inside until Noah's Flood, at which time the mountains and oceans appeared. Burnet discussed his theories with his friend, Isaac Newton, who admired his thought processes, and even suggested the possibility that when God created the Earth, the days were longer. In Archaeologiae Philosophicae, Burnet amplifies his ideas in The Theory of the Earth. Whereas the earlier work is based on his understanding of scripture and history, which were largely speculative, the second book is an attempt to base it on the Cartesian world theory and neo-Platonist philosophy, and it was here that he got into trouble and offended many people, including the king, who made him resign his post.

Ex-libris pasted on to pasted down front free end-paper ("Deus Meumque Jus - Supreme Council 33" - i.e. THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF FREEMASONRY). Minor soiling throughout, otherwise fine and clean. An very nice copy in a contemporary binding, printed on good paper. The work, most copies of which seem to have been frequently used by its owners, is almost never seen in such nice condition. (12), 180 pp.. Seemingly the title-issue of the first edition of this rare work on cryptography, with the most interesting provenance of the highest authority of the masonic order of the Scottish rite. The work constitutes the second English publication on the subject but the first work containing practical information. It seems to present the earliest illustration of keyed columnar transposition. "The second English book on the subject excelled, and its high quality is all the more surprising when one considers that John Falconer had written Cryptomenysis Patefacta in France some thirty years before its first publication in 1685." (Leeuw, The History of Information Security, p. 303).The first edition (1685) was published under the somewhat obscure title "Cryptomenysis Patefacta". In 1692 the work appears under the present title, "Rules for Explaining and Decyphering all Manner of Secret Writing", stating more obviously the subject of the work. Although the 1692-edition is referred to by eg. Leeuw as the second edition, and Both Alston and Wing record the title separately as another work, the contents are the same as that of the 1685-edition, though with a new title-page and not having the dedication and Address to the Reader. The signatures are the same as the 1685-edition, indicating that this is either a title- or re-issue of the first edition. The alphabet on p. 21 has been substituted with a different one in the present issue, printed on a paper-strip that has been inserted over the original one, covering it.It has been stated that Falconer was greatly influenced by John Wilkins's Mercury [1641], the first English work on the subject. This is, however, not entirely true; Wilkins' work has "a certain air of unreality" about it; he borrowed knowledge from earlier volumes and puffed it out with his own hypothesizing, which seems never to have been deflated by contact with the bruising actuality of solving cryptograms that he himself had not made up. Up until Falconer the literature was all theory and no practice. (Kahn, The Code Breakers, P. 156)."Falconer also gave what seems to be the earliest illustration of keyed columnar transposition, a cipher that is today the primary and most widely used transposition cipher, having served (with modifications) for French military ciphers, Japanese diplomatic superencipherments, and Soviet spy ciphers." (Leeuw, p. 303).Falconer's approach was that of practical coding and cryptography, which probably was a product of his profession as the private cipher of King James II. "In the middle of the 17th-century, the first adequate English handbook of cryptology was finally written [The present work]; the second edition in 1692 may be an indication that Falconer's work was in demand even forty years after its redaction." (Leeuw, The History of Information Security, p. 303). Only very little is known about John Falconer except that he was a distant relative of the Scottish philosopher David Hume and "was reportedly entrusted with the private cipher of the future King James II, and died in France while following James into temporary exile there." (Kahn, The Code Breakers, P. 155). The book has previously been part of a freemasonic library. "DEUS MEUMQUE JUS" ( i.e. "God and My Right") is a typical phrase used by Freemasons to worship of Satan/Lucifer. It has a dual meaning. First, this phrase means that the Freemason can depend upon their God to determine their Right and Justice. Secondly, since the God of Freemasonry is Lucifer, Masons are saying that they are "using occult methods", through Lucifer, to achieve their Rights and Justice. Apparently it is a very powerful and very dangerous phrase within Satanism. "Supreme Council 33" refers to the central authority of the Scottish Rite of Northern America (Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States) which dates itself from May 15, 1867. This was the date of the "Union of 1867", when it merged with the competing Cerneau "Supreme Council" in New York. The Scottish rite is divided into 33 degrees, the 33. degree being the highest order, usually referred to as Inspector General. It is conferred on members who have made major contributions to society or to Masonry in general. In the Southern Jurisdiction, a member who has been a 32. Scottish Rite Mason for 46 months or more is eligible to be elected to receive the "rank and decoration" of Knight Commander of the Court of Honour (K.C.C.H.) in recognition of outstanding service. After 46 months as a K.C.C.H. he is then eligible to be elected to the 33rd degree, upon approval of the Supreme Council and Grand Commander. A recipient of the 33rd Degree is an honorary member of the Supreme Council and is therefore called an "Inspector General Honorary." However, those who are appointed Deputies of the Supreme Council that are later elected to membership on the Supreme Council are then designated "Sovereign Grand Inspectors General." In the Northern Jurisdiction a recipient of the 33rd Degree is an honorary member of the Supreme Council, and all members are referred to as a "Sovereign Grand Inspectors General. (Normand, "The Scottish Rite Journal")

        Medicinal Experiments; or a Collection of Choice Remidies, for The most part Simple, and Easily Prepared. 2 Parts.

      London, for Sam. Smith, 1692. 12mo. Beautiful cont. full Cambridge-style binding. All edges of boards gilt and inner blindstamped dentelles. Front hinge a bit weak, and corners a bit bumped. A nice and clean copy. (10), 11, (1), 88, (2), 17 (being Catalogue of the Philosophical Books and Tracts), (1) pp.. The very rare (presumably) second (perhaps first) edition of Boyle's only entirely medical work, being without doubt the first edition under this title and the first edition to contain both parts. "We have it on the authority of Birch (No. 380, p. 262) that Boyle published a little duodecimo in 1688 under the title "Receipts sent to a Friend in America", containing five decads of "Choise remidies". The original has not yet been seen, but its existence is implied in the first sub-title - "The latter Five Decads being a Second Part" - and also in the Catalogue of 1692 described below (No. 179). The work passed eventually into three volumes and through many editions. The first two volumes, unbelievable though it may seem, are certainly written by Boyle, but the third volume, which did not appear until 1694, has many of the earmarks of a forgery... There are numerous statements in this astonishing collection of nostrums which might well shatter one's confidence in Boyle's judgment, but in charity it is perhaps better to look upon them as a commentary on the state of medicine in the seventeenth century rather than as an indictment of a high-minded seeker after truth. One should perhaps forget that he warmly recommended Paracelsus' receipt of pulverized human dung for sore eyes (Decad III, No. 3) and recall that he elected to take laudanum for toothache (Dec. I, 4) and linseed oil for burns (Dec. X, 5)." (Fulton p. 118).Fulton: 179

      sumtibus Johannis Friderici Gleditsch Lipsiae: sumtibus Johannis Friderici Gleditsch. 1692. Folio, 12 p.l., 2934 columns (thus paged), [92] leaves; engraved pictorial title-p., vignette title-p. printed in red and black; text in double column; woodcut head-pieces and initials; full contemporary Dutch vellum, blindstamped panel and arabesques on both covers, spine in 7 compartments, manuscript lettering in 1; front joint cracked, vellum soiled; good and sound. Basil Faber (1520–1576), Lutheran schoolmaster and theologian, was born at Zary in 1520. In 1538 he entered the University of Wittenberg, studying as pauper gratis under Philipp Melanchthon. Choosing the schoolmaster's profession, he became successively rector of the schools at Nordhausen, Tennstadt (1555), Magdeburg (1557) and Quedlinburg (1560). From this last post he was removed in December 1570 as a crypto-Calvinist. In 1571 he was appointed to the Rathsgymnasium at Erfurt, not as rector, but as director. In this situation he remained till his death in 1575 or 1576. His translation of the first twenty-five chapters of Luther's commentary on Genesis was published in 1557; in other ways he promoted the spread of Lutheran views. He was a contributor to the first four of the Magdeburg Centuries. He is best known by his Thesaurus eruditionis scholasticae (1571; last edition, improved by J. H. Leich, 1749, folio, 2 vols.); this was followed by his Libellus de disciplina scholastica (1572).
