He was elected to the Académie Royale des Sciences in 1678 and in 1683 he was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the Collège Royale. Four years later he was appointed, in addition, to the chair of architecture at the Académie Royale. Geometry which he had studied during 4 years in Italy was a special interest of his. "This work marks a significant step toward the elaboration of a modern manual of practical mechanics, suitable for engineers of various disciplines... he furnished useful descriptions and put forth the suggestion of adopting an epicycloidal profile for gear wheels." DSB 7, 578. "Pages 231-237 are devoted finding the correct form to be given to the fusee in spring clocks. The form is found geometrically on the assumption that the force of the spring is proportional to the angular movement of the barrel." Baillie, Clocks and Watches, page 122.

        Canada Orientale nell' America Settentrionale descritta

      Venice: V.M. Coronelli, [circa 1695]. Copper-engraved map. 18 1/2 x 25 1/8 inches. Decorative 17th century mapping of Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, a Venetian scholar and Minorite Friar, became one of the most celebrated map and globe makers of his era. Throughout his industrious life he produced more than one-hundred terrestrial and celestial globes, several hundred maps, and a wealth of cartographic publications. In 1683, he completed the Marly Globes for Louis XIV, the largest and most magnificent globes ever made. In 1684 he founded the Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, the first geographical society, and was appointed Cosmographer of the Republic of Venice. He published two atlases, the Atlante Veneto (Venice, 1691) and the Isolario (1696-98), and compiled the first encyclopedia to be arranged alphabetically. This fine map of Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, with parts of Labrador and Nova Scotia, appeared in the 1692-94 Corso Geografico and in the second edition of Atlante Veneto 1695-1697. The map closely follows Coronelli and Nolin's 1689 mapping of Canada and the American coast, though is more focussed on the Newfoundland and Gulf of St. Lawrence region. Derived from manuscript and printed sources, the map is remarkably accurate for its time. As with many of Coronelli's charts, elaborate cartouches provide decorative touches. Text concerning the Grand Banks appears at the bottom of the map, along with a note off the northeastern shore of Newfoundland concerning Cabot's discoveries.

In 1686, he decided to write epic poetry and show his genuine devotion to Christianity, & wrote Saint Paulin, évêque de Nôle (St. Paulinus, Bishop of Nola, about Paulinus of Nola).

        Thesaurus Geographicus. A new body of geography: or, a compleat description of the Earth … Collected with great care from the most approv'd geographers and modern travellers and discoveries, by several hands

      London: printed for Abel Swall and Tim. Child, 1695. Folio. (12 3/8 x 7 7/8 inches). 58 engraved maps, plans and town plans (comprising: 2 full- page maps, 56 printed within the text (24 maps and charts, 32 plans of fortified towns). Contemporary panelled calf, covers tooled in blind, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, brown morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, the others each tooled in gilt with a single centrally-placed Tudor rose tool (neat repairs to joints). A fine copy of this valuable compendium, fully illustrated with an attractive series of maps and town plans. Shirley notes that some of the maps in this work "carry Moll's signature", but Moll's sources are acknowledged in the preface, where it is stated that the maps "are drawn according to those of Sanson, De Wit, and Visscher; and tho' the size of them be small, they contain the Names of all the most considerable Places. The ...[Plans] of the Fortified Towns will give a better Idea of the Strength of the Places than the best Description in Words could do. They are mostly taken from those publish't at Paris by Monsieur du Fer the French King's Engineer, for the use of the Duke of Burgundy, which are generally esteemed the most exact." The collation and pagination of this work is erratic, suggesting that it was printed by different shops - but it is undoubtedly complete. The triple hemisphere world map at the start of the Geography section is particularly attractive, and there are two valuable maps which specifically refer to the Americas: on p.473 is a map of the entire continent (with California still shown as an island); and "A Map of the English Plantations in America" (covering from just north of Boston to the southern shores of the Caribbean) on p. 480.

        Virginiae Partis Australis, et Floridae Partis Orientalis, Interjacentinumq[ue] Regionum Nova Discriptio

      Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1695. Circa 1695. Double-page hand-colored map. Map is approximately 19" x 15"; the sheet is approximately 24" x 20.5". This map is a re-issue of Jan Jansson's map of southern Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia, which was first printed in 1621. Jansson's map was, in turn, a very close copy of Willem Blaeu's identically named map, which was published in 1620. This edition shows correctly labeled lattitudes and longitudes, French and British coats of arms in their countries' claimed territories, and one of the first identifications of Newport News. There are three imaginary inland lakes labeled: 1) Lacus aqua dulcis adeo magnus ut ex una ripa conspici altara non posit (A freshwater lake so large one shore cannot be seen from the opposite side); 2) In hoc lacu Indigenae argenti grana inveniunt (In this lake, natives find grains of silver); 3) Lacus et insula sarrope, abundat optimus fruct (There is abundant fruit at Lake Sarrope and island.) Clean with several light spots of marginal toning. No rips or tears. Minor offestting of color in the Atlantic Ocean. Tiny pinhole in the lower left corner above the "N" in orientalis. Another map of this edition in lesser condition sold for $1440 (including buyer's commission) at Swann's Auction on 6 June 2013 (Lot 202).. Map. Very Good.

        Amerique Septentrionale Divisée en ses Principales Parties

      Paris: 1695. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. 21 1/4 x 28 inches. Beautifully engraved map of North America, here in the rare first state with California as an island. Although similarly titled to Jaillot's earlier map of 1674, this map is on a slightly smaller scale. Like Jaillot's earlier map, however, it is beautifully engraved and based on the mappings by Sanson. "The attractive title cartouche engraved by C. Simmoneau is adorned with two tropical birds" (Burden). Although Burden cites the first issue as having no date in the top right cartouche enclosing the scale of miles, close inspection reveals the date to have been abraded off. On the present copy, which includes a contemporary manuscript dating of 1695 in the title cartouche, the date "16 - -" appears in the upper right cartouche, with the terminal digits abraded off. Subsequent issues would add a title below Jaillot's name and amend the mapping of the region to reflect changing boundaries and the creation of colonies. The map would be reissued with such changes until the end of the 18th century. The first and early issues, however, are scarce. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 709; McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island 101; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 695.5; Tooley, "California as an Island," 38 in Tooley, The Mapping of America.

        An Essay on the State of England, in Relation to its Trade, its Poor, and its Taxes, for Carrying on the Present War in France,

      First Edition, complete with half title, [20], 178pp octavo, contemporary panelled calf, neatly rebacked, a very good copy. Bristol: Printed by W. Bonny, for the Author, 1695. * Wing C 730. Kress 1870. Goldsmiths' 3074. Sabin 11200. Hollander 422. Massie 1310. Hutchinson, Before Adam Smith, p. 389n. Heckscher, Mercantilism II, 119, 169ff. * John Cary (d. circa 1720), was a Bristol merchant. The Essay was said by Locke to be 'the best discourse I ever read on that subject' (quoted by F. Y. Edgeworth in Palgrave I, 230; see Locke's correspondence with Cary in the British Museum), and is significant for its advocacy of technological progress. 'Cary was evidently esteemed by his fellow citizens as a man of sound practical judgment, for he acted as an arbitrator in commercial disputes, and was chosen by the Bristol committee of trade as their representative in London to advise the city members in matters affecting Bristol trade' (DNB III, 1153f). This rare first edition, Bristol published, was also possibly the most influential of all seventeenth century treatises on the poor. Cary proposed to deal with the problem of poverty in the city of Bristol by erecting a workhouse at the general charge in which those who could not work (the old, the sick, the disabled etc.) would be accommodated free of charge and in which children who could not be provided for would receive some useful education and training. Those who could work would be provided with profitable employment and laziness was firmly discouraged. To this end Cary sought to encourage local merchants to regard the workhouse as a useful source of labour. Cary's proposals were destined to be copied up and down the kingdom. They embodied the idea of "Putting the Poor to work" which for a while was the dominating principle in the history of the poor. By 1700 Cary was able to see beneficial results of his exertions: "The success hath answered our expectation; we are freed from beggars, our old people are comfortably provided for; our Boys and Girls are educated to Sobriety, and brought up to delight in Labour...". See Sidney and Beatrice Webb, 'The Old Poor Law' pp.108-116. For Cary, the encouragement of trade and the amelioration of poverty by setting the poor on work were two sides of the same question. Thus the other major strand in this book deals with the question of trade. In the preface Cary mentions the "Plantation Trade" as one of the largest issues facing the British economy. Some feared that through emigration the home land might become depopulated. In this way, since "People are or may be the Wealth of a Nation", the growth of Plantations might prove harmful to the home economy. From page 66 et seq. Cary argues that they are a benefit. If the produce of the Plantations came to England for processing and distribution including re-exportation the result would be a substantial net benefit to the home country. "England would become the Centre of Trade, and standing like the Sun in the midst of its Plantations would not only refresh them, but also draw Profits from them..." Cary goes on to list the laws which would be needed to formalise and protect the arrangement. These laws would forbid any exportation from the Plantations except to England; to prevent manufacturing in the colonies; to prevent the exportation of raw materials to the colonies from the home country and finally, in compensation to the colonies "To lay open the African Trade, that the inhabitants may be supply'd with Negroes on easie Terms." These arguments are elaborated (pp 66-89) with much on the use of Negro labour. The role of the American Plantations remains a theme throughout the discussion on trade which makes up the rest of the volume. * PROVENANCE: Earl of Hardwicke, Lord Chancellor, with his armorial bookplate, perhaps from Wimpole Hall. Charles Yorke (1722 -1770) was Lord Chancellor of Great Britain, the second son of Philip Yorke, 1st Earl of Hardwicke (whose copy this originally probably was). Charles Yorke was educated at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. In 1745 he published "An able treatise on the law of forfeiture for high treason," in defence of the severe sentences his father had given to the Scottish Jacobite peers following the Battle of Culloden. In the following year he was called to the bar. His father being at this time Lord Chancellor (to which he also eventually succeeded), Yorke obtained a sinecure appointment in the Court of Chancery in 1747, and entered parliament as member for Reigate, a seat which he afterwards exchanged for that for the University of Cambridge. In 1751 he became counsel to the East India Company, and in 1756 he was appointed Solicitor-General, a place which he retained in the administration of the elder Pitt, of whose foreign policy he was a powerful defender. He resigned with Pitt in 1761, but in 1762 became Attorney-General under Lord Bute. He supported the repeal of the Stamp Act, while urging the simultaneous passing of the Declaratory Act. His most important measure was the constitution which he drew up for the province of Quebec, and which after his resignation of office became the Quebec Act of 1774. In 1770 he was invited by the Duke of Grafton to become Chancellor.

Leibnitz (1653-1705) var tysk präst och flyttade på grund av läromässiga stridigheter till Stockholm 1694, där han fick tillfälle att predika i Tyska kyrkan. Boken är till största delen utdrag ur Arndts "Sanna kristendom", och till återstående del citat från Christian Scriver, Joachim Lütkemann m.fl. Bokens titel är hämtad från "Ordspråksboken" 25:11: "Den som i sinom tid talat är såsom gyllne äpplen uti silverskålom." I bokstavsordning är den kristnes nyckelord uppställda, från "Abendmahl" till "Zwey beste Wort, 1. Peccavi. 2 Miserere." Förklaringarna under nyckelorden har en tydligt pietistisk karaktär. "Pånyttfödelse" behandlas under "Neue Geburth" och mer utförligt, försiktigtvis under ordet "Nativitet". Boken "angreps snart av L:s ärkeortodoxe ämbetsbroder Aug. Strauch, som [...] funnit anstötliga ordasätt i hans predikningar. L:s skrift utgör en liten antologi av religiösa, mestadels av en fin mystik präglade iakttagelser av det religiösa livet. Då L återkallade de 'misstänkta ordasätt och villfarande läror' som boken innehöll frikändes han av en biskoplig granskningskommission. L var som predikant högt skattad." (citat ur Em. Linderholms "Sven Rosen och hans insats i frihetstidens radikala pietism". Uppsala 1911, s. 89. Skriften är senare analyserad av Bengt Wahlström i "Kyrkohistorisk årsskrift" 1954, s. 31 ff.)

Wear to spine ends, corners bumped and lightly worn. Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light browning, occasional light foxing. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. Derived in part from Roman models but otherwise based on Germanic law, the Lombard Laws were introduced by the Lombard kings after their conquest of Italy in 568CE. It was a successful system that became more sophisticated during the following decades, especially after the union of the Lombards with the Frankish kingdom. This body of law was a decisive influence in Italian law and legal study into the seventeenth century and did not wholly disappear until the introduction of French-based codes in the nineteenth century. Schilter, a Ratskonsulent in Frankfurt and professor of law at the University of Strassburg, was a sophisticated jurist and a pioneering scholar of comparative law and legal history. The ground-breaking Ad Jus Feudale was one of the first modern studies of its kind. A standard work, it went through nine editions by 1750. OCLC locates 1 copy of the 1695 edition in a North American library (Harvard Law School). Stintzing/Landesberg, Geschichte der Deutschen Rechtswissenschaft III:1, n. 35.

        Habit de Masque

      Augsburg: Published in Augsburg by Jeremias Wolff., circa 1695. Engraving with superb early colour and rich gold highlights. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 9 ½ x 6 5/8 inches. 10 3/8 x 6 5/8 inches. 14 1/8 x 8 ¾ inches. Archivally framed. This is a handsome print, with breathtaking early colour, depicting the costume of a singer at a masque ball. This bold print is from a colourful series of costume prints engraved and published by Jeremias Wolff at the beginning of the 18th century. The series depicts prancing figures in flamboyant theatrical costumes, and is a superb example of early costume prints. Costume and trade prints, such as this, became extremely popular in Europe at the close of the seventeenth century and continued to serve as a source of inspiration until the decadent days of the Art Deco movement in the 1920's. This magnificent series depicts the costumes of ballet dancers, and opera singers, as well as the vibrant apparel of a jester at a masque ball. As is typical of this genre of print, the figures are pictured in front of an architectural or pastoral background and richly coloured in thick opaque colour with vibrant gold highlights. The series was executed and produced by the prolific German publisher Jeremias Wolff. Wolff came from a family of engravers and became extremely successful, both as an engraver and as a publisher and printseller. He was one of the most prolific publishers and engravers in Augsburg and is responsible for some of the finest engravings to come out of the city. In addition to a number of other costume books and portraits, he was a successful map publisher and it is for his skill as a cartographic engraver that he is perhaps best known.

        Traite de mecanique, ou l'on explique tout ce qui est necessaire dans la pratique des arts, et les proprietes des corps pesants lesquelles ont un plus grand usage dans la physique.Paris: L'Imprimerie Royale, 1695.

      First edition of La Hire's important manual of mechanics. "Associated with the leading scientists of the age, La Hire was, for nearly half a century, one of the principal animators of scientific life in France... His diverse observations in physics, meteorology and the natural sciences simply attest to the high level of is intellectual curiosity... His early works in projective, analytic and applied geometry place him among the best of the followers of Desargues and Descartes. Finally, his diverse knowledge and artistic, technical and scientific experience were factors in the growth of technological thought, the advance of practical mechanics and the perfecting of graphic techniques... The important <i>Traité de mécanique</i> that La Hire published in 1695 represents a synthesis of his diverse theoretical and practical preoccupations. Although passed over by the majority of the historians of mechanics, this work marks a significant step toward the elaboration of a modern manual of practical mechanics, suitable for engineers of various disciplines. La Hire thus partially answered the wish expressed by Colbert in 1675 of seeing the Academy produce an exact description of all the machines useful in the arts and trades... La Hire furnished useful descriptions and put forth the suggestion (already made in his <i>Traité des épicycloides</i>) following Desargues, of adopting an epicycloidal profile for gear wheels". (DSB VII: 576-9). <br/><br/> "Timoshenko notes that La Hire was responsible for the first application of statics to the solution of arch problems. In the present work we find the funicular polygon used for the first time in arch analysis. His analysis revealed 'that under the assumption of perfect smoothness at the wedge surfaces, stability of a semicircular arch cannot exist', but that the cement holding the wedges will contribute to the stability, thereby removing the necessity of complying rigorously with the established ratio for P1:P2:P3" (Bibliotheca Mechanica p. 192). <br/><br/> Poggendorff 477; Dugas, Mechanics in the seventeenth century, 1958, p. 546; Timoshenko, History of Strength of Materials, 1953, pp. 63-4.. 12mo (161 x 98 mm), pp [xii], 492.

        Pas Kaart van de Golff van Mexico Sea chart from the Zee-Fakkel

      Amsterdam: Johannes Van Keulen, 1695. JOHANN VAN KEULEN&#39;S SPECTACULAR SEA CHARTS OF THE GULF COAST AND THE WORLD Copperplate engraving Johannes van Keulen was the founding member of a family of mapmakers that created a veritable cartographic dynasty in 17th-century Amsterdam, becoming the chief publisher of sea atlases and nautical works during the era. This finely engraved and important chart of the Gulf of Mexico was published in van Keulen&#39;s monumental sea atlas, the Zee-Fakkel, considered by many to be the culmination of the development of Dutch pilot books. The chart is beautifully engraved with a splendid baroque cartouche that includes cherubs with a falcon, a snake and seafaring utensils. The Zee-Fakkel was published in five parts from 1684 to 1689. Part IV of the atlas was devoted to America, and in its separately published form, was the first sea atlas specifically devoted to the New World. It contained some of the most important 17th-century sea charts of American areas, including this rare chart, a re-issue of the 1684 edition, with significantly more detail added - particularly place names. Oriented with West at the top, as was common in Dutch sea charts of the time, it depicts the entire Gulf coast, and includes the region from present day Pensacola, Florida to Cozumel Island off the Yucatan peninsula. Rhumb lines are depicted throughout. An inset in the lower left shows the area around present day Vera Cruz. The Zee-Fakkel was the largest and most complete sea atlas to be published to date. As with preceding Dutch atlases of the type, it was designed for the international market, for the publication of hydrographic knowledge throughout the 17th century was predominantly a Dutch affair, under the undisputed leadership of Amsterdam. The Zee-Fakkel marked the climax of this development, and the house of van Keulen, active without a break from 1678 to 1885, was the largest unofficial hydrographic office in the world..

        A New Map of the English Empire in America Viz Virginia Maryland Carolina Pennsylvania New York New Jersey New England by Rob: Morden

      London: "Sold by Robt. Morden at the Atlas in Cornhill./ And by Christopher Brown at ye Globe/ near the Westend of St. Pauls/ Church: London", [circa 1695]. Copper-engraved map by John Harris, with original outline colour. Paper toned and margins somewhat soiled otherwise in very good condition. 20 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches. A rare and important map of the American colonies, in the scarce first state. This is in effect a propaganda map, compiled during the War of the League of Augsburg, or King William&#39;s War (1689-97). Morden shows the English American colonies thrusting westward, at the expense of the rival French claims. In addition to the Midwest, much of Canada is shown as English. The English colonies along the Atlantic Seaboard are carefully delineated according to English sources, but Canada, the Mississippi Valley, and the Great Lakes are based on French sources, including the maps of Dablon (1672) and Thevenot (1681). Morden still preserves Lederer&#39;s configuration (1672) in his depiction of the interior of the Southeast. At lower right is a large inset map of the North Atlantic, the vital life line between Britain and its American empire. Just above is the title piece crowned by the Royal Arms, and an inset map of Boston Harbor based on Thomas Pound&#39;s A New Mapp of New England from Cape Codd to Cape Sables (1691). The engraver, John Harris was one of the most accomplished members of his profession working in England. The insets are surrounded by decorative acanthus brackets and supports in the arabesque style, a signature motif of the artist. A second state was published in 1719 with the imprint of John Senex. Provenance: deaccessioned from the Western Reserve Historical Society, 2001 Degrees of Latitude, pp. 358-360; Stevens & Tree, Comparative Cartography, 20a, in Tooley, The Mapping of America; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps, 695; Cumming, The Southeast in Early Maps, 119; Phillips, A List of Maps of America, p. 564.

        Camden&#39;s Britannia, Newly Translated into English: With Large Additions And Improvements

      London: F. Collins. for A.Swalle & A. & F. Churchil, 1695. leather_bound. Contemporary panelled calf decorated in blind, rebacked with original red leather spine label laid-down. Near fine./No Dust Jacket. 1116, (18), (26) pages.[*1, A2, a-g2, B-Fff4, Ggg4,*Ggg2, Hhh4, *Hhh2, Iii-Mmm4,& Nnn-Nnnn2, a-l2]. Frontispiece, fifty double-paged maps by Robert Morden, nine plates of maps, and a host of engravings in the text -- most notable, that of Stonehenge, Rolle-rich stones of Oxfordshire; and some Roman tablets, altars and inscriptions. "Britannia" is a county-by-county description of Great Britain. It is a work of chorography: a study that relates landscape, geography, antiquarianism and history. Rather than write a history, Camden described in detail the Great Britain of the present, and attempted to delineate how the past could be discerned in the existing landscape. He thus produced the first coherent picture of Roman Britain. His circle of friends and acquaintances included Lord Burghley, Fulke Greville, Philip Sydney, Edmund Spencer, and Ben Jonson, the latter was Camden&#39;s student at Westminster, and who dedicated an early edition of "Every Man in His Humor" to him. SKELTON 117, WING C-359. Handwritten bookplate of Thomas Ansell, dated 1762, text and maps largely bright and clean, minor margin worming leaves Ffff-Mmmm, old repair upper corner of leaf Bb, Kent plate inverted, but overall a fresh and unsophisticated copy.
