        Utilissimo Trattato dell' Acque correnti. Diviso in Tre Libri, nel quale si notificano le Misure, ed Esperienze di Esse. I Giuochi, e Scherzi, li quali per mezzo dell' Aria, e del Fuoco, vengono operati dall' Acqua.

      Two double-page plates & 80 engravings in the text. 8 p.l., 196, [16] pp. Folio, orig. carta rustica (covers a little soiled & spotted, first few leaves a little dampstained in outer lower corner). Rome: G.F. Buagni, 1696. First edition and a fine fresh copy of this finely illustrated work on baroque hydraulics. Fontana (1638-1714), was the most important Roman architect of his generation. This book "emerges from an actual design problem. The practical source for this theoretical work was the project for the raising of the water level of Lake Bracciano, necessary since the second fountain in Saint Peter's square, built by Bernini under Pope Clement X, was to be fed with water brought from this lake... "In the three parts of Acque correnti, Fontana takes up a wide range of empirical and theoretical issues. In his discussion of the behavior of water, Fontana challenges Galileo's theory of flotation, positing water as heavier than earth. The technique of moving water through lead pipes is discussed, as is the theory of the speed of the movement of water, followed by an analysis of compression and the functioning of pumps. In the third part, Fontana deals specifically with the project of bringing water from Bracciano to Rome. The water brought from Bracciano was drawn from the property of the Orsini, and Fontana was able to draw from a rich range of documents in the family archives... "The Acque correnti is exquisitely illustrated with engravings of a high artistic and decorative standard, and thus appreciated not only by hydraulic engineers but also by collectors of fine books and wealthy patrons of garden fountains. Despite this aesthetic quality, however, the book is modest in length and compact in format, suitable for practical use...The text of the Acque correnti aims at scientific clarity and addresses the hydraulic engineer and fountain specialist."-Millard Architectural Collection, IV, 39. Fine copy. Occasional light browning. ❧ Riccardi, I, 465-66-(with a long note). Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 115-16. .

Dans cette œuvre de physique universelle, il étudie les éléments qui composent l'univers, la formation de la Terre et des planètes, le phénomène de la pesanteur, les propriétés des corps solides et liquides, la formation du Soleil, des étoiles fixes et la nature du feu, le mouvement de la terre et des planètes, le flux et reflux de la mer, la nature et les propriétés de l'aimant, les volcans et les tremblements de terre, les vents, les météores, l'origine des fontaines, des puits et des rivières. Hartsoeker enseigna sa physique à d'illustres élèves parmi lesquels Pierre le Grand. Tous ses traités furent rédigés en français et ne furent souvent traduits, même en langue flamande, que beaucoup plus tard. Sa correspondance avec Fontenelle, qui le soutenait contre les attaques de ses adversaires, ainsi que quelques démonstrations sur l'invalidité du système de Newton, auquel il était violemment opposé, ne seront publiées qu'après sa mort.

Testatine, capilettera e finalini xilografici. Incisioni n.t. - Testo in latino - Nervi al dorso e fregio al piatto superiore - Alcune numeri di pagina errati. Pagine molto brunite - First and only Latin edition of this important early work by John Selden. It is translated by Simon John Arnold from the English edition, which appeared for the first time in London in 1614.The second enlarged English folio edition was published in the same city in 1631, the third also in London in 1672 with an eulogy by Ben Johnson. Selden's great historical work on nobility begins with a general discussion of titles and nobility. The following chapters consider the nobility of ancient Greece and Rome, Europe, the British Isles, the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox Churches, the Middle East and Asia. The final chapters survey various aspects of ceremony and precedence. The work is dedicated by Arnold to Margrave Albert Frideric of Brandenburg and Prussia, dated Sonnenburg, 24 August 1696, and by Selden to Edward Heyward, who was Selden's friend and chamber - fellow. After the dedications follow a laudatory poem by Ben Johnson and the preface by Selden. The work remained a comprehensive and trustworthy work for centuries. John Selden (1584 - 1654), was an English jurist, antiquary and scholar of England's ancient laws and constitution and scholar of Jewish law. He was known as a polymath of astounding intellectual depth and breadth; even John Milton, one of the greatest luminaries of 17th - century England, hailed Selden as ''the chief of learned men reputed in this land''.

        The voyages & travels of Sir John Mandevile, Knight, to the Holy Land, and to Hierusalem: as also to the lands of the Great Caan, and of Prestor John: to Inde, and divers other countries.

      London, Richard Chiswell, Benjamin Walford, Matthew Wotton, George Conyers, [printing probably shared by 2 printers, one possibly Samuel Roycroft], 1696. - 4to (19.5 x 15.5 cm). [4], "139" [= 135], [5] pp. With a woodcut ship on the title-page (with a griffin on the sail) and about 60 woodcut illustrations in the text (mostly about 5.5 x 8 cm) plus about 10 repeats, each with a thick-thin border. Set in textura types with incidental roman and italic. Gold-tooled, red goatskin morocco by Robert Riviere in London (ca. 1875/80), with 5 (false?) bands on the spine, each board with a double frame of double and triple fillets and 2 different sets of 4 corner pieces, author and title in gold in 2nd and 3rd of 6 spine compartments, the others with gold-tooled decorations and the date and place of publication at the foot, gold-tooled turn-ins, gold fillets on board edges, straight-combed endpapers, gilt edges, stamped on the back of the free marbled endleaf in sans-serif capitals: "Bound by Riviere". A rare 17th-century English edition, with about 60 different woodcut illustrations, of a classic and partly fictional 14th-century account of travels presented as voyages of Sir John Mandeville through Turkey, Egypt, Ethiopia, Syria, Persia, Arabia, India and the East Indies. According to the story he set off on his travels in 1322 from Saint Albans in England, returned in 1343, wrote the present account in 1364 and died in 1371. It was originally written in French and is thought to have been compiled from various sources by Jehan d'Outremeuse (1338-1400) of Liege. A 1371 manuscript survives and it first appeared in print under the title Itinerarius in Dutch (ca. 1477), French (1480), German (1480) and other languages, and in English in Richard Pynson's edition of ca. 1497/98. It includes many well-known stories and illustrations of monstrous people and animals in exotic lands: a man with only one enormous foot that he can use as a parasol, a dog-headed man, a man with his face in his chest, a girl who turns into a dragon, griffins, nine-meter giants, ants that gather gold, diamonds that mate and give birth to baby diamonds and much more that spoke to the imagination (though the ox-headed man is presented as an idol that was worshipped, rather than a fantastic beast). The book also includes genuine descriptions of the regions covered and gave many Europeans their first notions of the Near East, Middle East, India and East Indies. It shows carrier pigeons, an elephant and other recognisable or plausible scenes. It also incorporates and illustrates some biblical stories. The part on Arabia includes an account of the birth of Mohammed. Most of the present woodcuts are loosely and indirectly based on those in the 1481 Augsburg edition, partly in mirror image. The book went through dozens of editions in English and other languages. It reached more or less the present form with the 1650 London edition, which may have used the same woodblocks (we have not had an opportunity to compare them). The imprint of the present edition names four London publishers, and one of them (Conyers) also advertises his edition of William Lithgow's Nineteen years travels (1692) at the foot of the last page. The book was registered for these four publishers in the term catalogue for Trinity 1696, issued in June. The printing was probably shared between two different anonymous printers: exactly half way through the book, between quires I and K, the running heads, the textura type used for the main text and the roman drop capitals opening the chapters change. The 1684 edition by four London publishers (none named in the present edition) not only uses the same woodblocks but is also typographically almost identical to the first half of the present edition and no doubt came from the same printer. The drop capitals differ, but those in the present edition have not been recorded before 1688. Samuel Roycroft and James Orme both used them, and Roycroft used at least several of the other types in the first half. The book is printed on coarse laid paper with no watermark. Halliwell, in his 1869 edition of Mandeville, noted the pr [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The snake in the grass: or, Satan transform'd into an angel of light. Discovering the deep and unsuspected subtilty which is couched under the pretended simplicity of many of the principal leaders of those people call'd Quakers.

      London: printed for Charles Brome 8vo (16.5 cm; 6.5"). [6], cccxlii [i.e. ccclii], 271, [1] pp.. 1696 First edition of the first of nine anti-Quaker books written by the author after living with a Quaker family while in hiding. Within this easily portable yet densely packed text, Leslie (1650?1722), a nonjuring Church of Ireland clergyman, claims "the Quakers are False Prophets and Conjurers," "the Popish Emissaries first set up Quakerism in England," and "No Quakers in the world do defend themselves with greater vehemence, and self-assurance than the Muggletonians do" ? among other numerous, only occasionally factual criticisms. However harsh the allegations, the Quakers were not Leslie's sole target; he also wrote works against deism, Judaism, Catholicism, Socinianism, and more, not to mention his numerous writings against various political parties. Sabin's entry for this Americanum has this bizarre and amusing note: "It gives a long account of the 'Fourth or New Quakers who mostly reside in Long Island and East Jersey, in America,' one of whom was => Mary Ross, who went to meeting stark naked, and carrying a fiddle." => The text here is in a rather striking mix of roman, italic, and large black letter. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released), with bookplate tucked into front cover. 17th-century speckled calf, Cambridge-style, spine gilt-lettered with two labels, bands accented and covers panelled in blind; rebacked with new endpapers; abraded, edges worn. Moderate age-toning and foxing, a handful of leaves with rounded corners or chipped edges. Ex-library with its rubber-stamp on title-page and one leaf of text, five-digit number on title-page verso; light pencilling on title-page.

        A practical discourse concerning swearing: especially in the two great points of perjury and common-swearing.

      London: Richard Sare. 1696. 8vo., (4) + xxix (i.e. xlv) + (15) + 144pp., including the preliminary blank (A1), contemporary panelled calf with raised bands, unlettered, short (1 cm.) split at head of upper joint but, nonetheless, a fine, crisp, copy. First edition. Wing W.252. A 'practical discourse' on swearing in all its forms, including, of course, the use of profane words in everyday speech. it was, Wake suggests, an 'evil practice'. 'This is so just a reflection, that it is, perhaps, the only account that can be given, how men come to swear so ordinarily, and upon such little occasions, as they do: in such cases, where there is neither any manner of need of an oath for the conformation of what they speak; nor have they, often times, any such design in it. But 'tis a fashionable way of adorning, or rather of profaning their discourse; the practice of it is become almost epidemical; and they have, insensibly, accustomed their tongues to it, till at last they neither know how to avoid it, nor are themselves sensible when they do it .....'. [p.104]. William Wake (1657-1737) was at the time rector of St. James's church, Westminster. In 1716 he was elevated to the Archbishopric of Canterbury.

Within this easily portable yet densely packed text, Leslie (1650–1722), a nonjuring Church of Ireland clergyman, claims "the Quakers are False Prophets and Conjurers," "the Popish Emissaries first set up Quakerism in England," and "No Quakers in the world do defend themselves with greater vehemence, and self-assurance than the Muggletonians do" — among other numerous, only occasionally factual criticisms. However harsh the allegations, the Quakers were not Leslie's sole target; he also wrote works against deism, Judaism, Catholicism, Socinianism, and more, not to mention his numerous writings against various political parties. Sabin's entry for this Americanum has this bizarre and amusing note: "It gives a long account of the 'Fourth or New Quakers who mostly reside in Long Island and East Jersey, in America,' one of whom was => Mary Ross, who went to meeting stark naked, and carrying a fiddle." => The text here is in a rather striking mix of roman, italic, and large black letter. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released), with bookplate tucked into front cover. 17th-century speckled calf, Cambridge-style, spine gilt-lettered with two labels, bands accented and covers panelled in blind; rebacked with new endpapers; abraded, edges worn. Moderate age-toning and foxing, a handful of leaves with rounded corners or chipped edges. Ex-library with its rubber-stamp on title-page and one leaf of text, five-digit number on title-page verso; light pencilling on title-page.

James Moxon (fl. 1647-96) was, perhaps, Joseph Moxon's younger brother; he was established in a shop in Edinburgh at Low Ord's Close. (See Taylor on the confusions of the elder and younger James Moxons) Baillie says he was a fellow of the Royal Society and hydrographer to the King. He worked with Venturus Mandey who was a mathematical teacher and author of ?Mellificium Mensionis: Or, the Marrow of Measuring?, a title based on masonry and measurement. Mandey collected a large library of mathematical books, which was sold by auction after his death, and lived in Bloomsbury Market at the Red Hart in Hart Street where he sold his books.They mention the Stackfreed regulator, which Baillie notes "is the earliest mention of it, and, I believe, the only mention in early literature."
