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.

        Tituli honorum. Autore clarissimo & eruditissimo antiquario Joanne Seldeno interioris Templi, Armigero

      impensis Jeremiae Schrey, & Henrici Johannis Meyeri haered, 1696. Juxta editionem tertiam Londinensem anni 1672. cui accessisse dicuntur Seldeni emendationes & additamenta latine vertit notasque addidit Simon Johannes Arnold - in 8° - pp.48 nn + 690 + 76nn - Pergamena - Incisione in antiporta raffigurante l'artista - Incisioni che rappresentano: Princeps Walliae - Dvx - Marchio - Comes - Vice comes - Baro. 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.

L'Hospital freely acknownledged his indeptedness to his sources, but also claimed credit for some work which was not his own. The ninth chapter of his textbook contains what is now known as "L'Hospital's rule" for finding the limiting value of a fraction whose numerator and denominator tend to zero; however, this rule was actually the work of Bernoulli, who included it in his letter to L'Hospital of 22 July 1694."

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."

        De la generation de l'homme, ou tableau de l'amour conjugal.

      Cologne: Claude Joly 1696 - 7th edition. 672 p., frontis, 12 pl., some folding. Bound in contemporary vellum. Good binding and cover. Soiling to vellum. Tear to front joint, splitting head of spine vellum and side of front board. Clean, unmarked pages. First treatise on sexology in West. Discussing four sub-topics with respect to sex: anatomy, reproduction, desire, and impotence/infertility, Venette reviews ancient and medieval authors, adding his own observations or those of later authors, and comments where common sense prevails. The resulting composition has an ambiguous mixture of seriousness and light-heartedness bordering upon erotic literature. Venette proposes a solution to the crisis of love that exists in his time, advocating a balance between impetuous lovers and religious imperatives. On the one hand, it seeks to defuse the fears of people regarding sex, and to change overall pessimistic views towards love and sexuality. On the other hand, it invites the reader to tame romantic passions by reason and respect for natural laws. The book is not only an instruction manual that provides information on sexuality, it also aims to educate by offering a new way of being and living love in the state of marriage.

        Utrecht wandkaart - De Roy.

      NIEUWE KAART VANDEN LANDE VAN UTRECHTKopergravure, samengesteld uit meerdere bladen, vervaardigd door Bernard de Roy in 1696, 2e staat uitgegeven door Covens en Mortier in 1743. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 121 x 184 cm.Dit is de bekendste kaart van de provincie Utrecht en na uitgifte van de gedetailleerdere 2e staat in 1743, ongeveer een eeuw het meest gezaghebbende kaartwerk over de provincie waarop alle latere kaarten zouden teruggaan.Ter omkadering van de kaart werden gravures gemaakt met wapens van Holland, stad en provincie Utrecht, magistraatspersonen en gezichten van Montfoort, Wijk bij Duursteerde, Utrecht, Rhenen en Amersfoort. Deze op losse bladen gedrukte versieringen zitten niet bij dit exemplaar.De Roy"s grootschalige kaart is er een in een reeks, als wandkaarten bedoelde, die in de 17e-eeuw van vele delen van ons land zijn verschenen. Bij gebrek aan een uniforme grootschalige kaart van het gehele grondgebied van de Republiek, vormden deze op verschillende schalen ontworpen en in kwaliteit en uitvoering uiteenlopende kaartwerken, toenmaals de hoofdbron van de geografische kennis omtrent de afzonderlijke gewesten.De kaart van Den Lande van Utrecht werd behalve om haar geografische informatie ook uit decoratieve en representatieve overwegingen gebruikt en vormde een waardige en passende versiering, zowel voor de vergaderzalen van de bestuurscolleges als voor de huizen van welgestelde particulieren. Helaas betekende deze bestemming meestal haar vrijwel zekere ondergang. Blootgesteld aan licht, stof, vocht, roet, temperatuurswisselingen, veelvuldige aanraking en andere ongunstige invloeden, takelden de op linnen of hout gemonteerde exemplaren in de loop der tijden sterk af en eindigden meestal roemloos hun bestaan. Dit exemplaar heeft haar "bestemming" als wandkaart in eerste instantie niet bereikt, maar is in atlasvorm samengebonden geconserveerd gebleven en pas in de 20e-eeuw gemonteerd.Literatuur: facsimile met introductie door A.H. Sijmons (1973).Prijs: € 7.500,-.

        Reliquiae Baxterianae or Mr. Richard Baxter's Narrative of the Most Memorable Passages of his Life and Times

      t. Park Hurts, F Robsinson, F Lawrence and F. Dunton, London 1696 - Complete Vol. is tight and almost no foxing. Frontispiece engraved by Robert White. Missing some leather on front cover and is quite loose but still attached. Some page corners are nibbled the back of the book is attached to the spine and has some missing leather as well. Some writing on inside of front cover from 1894 some more writing from 1792 on the next pg. by John Hudson. The book measure 13 inches by 8 inches by 3 inches deep. If the new owner wishes to have this book rebound we will agree to reimburse the cost back to the buyer after it is rebound. The 800-page folio consists of autobiographical papers, with supporting documents, written in the main in 1664, 1665 and 1670-85, covering the seventy-year period from Baxter's birth in 1615, most expansively the years following the restoration of monarchy and Charles II's return in 1660. Its editor was the nonconformist minister Matthew Sylvester (1636?-1708). This book is an unrivalled primary historical source for seventeenth-century English political, religious, social, cultural and literary history. Baxter offers a first-hand account of events at the highest level (he met, and comments on, Cromwell, Charles II, Clarendon, Sheldon) but he is also (particularly through his ministry) a witness to the experiences of a great range of provincial members of the mercantile, clerical, artisan and agricultural classes. The Reliquiae is a foundation text for eighteenth-century ecclesiastical and historiographical traditions. Its vindication of moderate Puritanism and its accounts of the early nonconformists passed Baxterianism on to eighteenth-century dissent. In this respect, the Reliquiae was an early contributor to the literary civil war prompted by the 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688/89 to determine the master narrative of seventeenth-century English history. Baxter's was one of the most acute intelligences and complex personalities of the period. He was fascinated by individuality, by temperament and by psychology, his own as much as others'. The Reliquiae is rich in sharply realised and acute characterisations and in passages of remarkably perceptive self-scrutiny and reflection, leading to its being hailed as one of the masterpieces of early autobiographical writing in the English tradition and as a key text in the development of both historiography and autobiography as distinct literary genres. The Reliquiae is the most significant and substantial seventeenth-century work of personal record never to have received scholarly editorial attention. Much of this info obtained from the University of Stirling. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Er wird nicht müde, sich an bildungswillige Musik-Interessierte zu wenden, obwohl er in seinem Amt als Kantor jahrzehntelang jungen Menschen musikalischen Unterricht gibt. Was ihn antreibt, ist der Neid seiner Spötter und das ungenierte Treiben der ungelehrten "Bierfiedler", die eine ernsthafte ökonomische Konkurrenz in der Akzeptanz der Bürgerschicht und an den Höfen bedeuten. Ihn treibt aber auch ein unbändiger Fleiß, die Musik in ihrem antiken und gottbegründeten Bezug in barockenzyklopädistischer Genauigkeit zu erforschen und darzulegen. Alles dies gipfelt in seinem "Satyrischen Componisten", den es in seiner Ambivalenz zu würdigen gilt, da dies weder die Literatur- noch die Musikwissenschaft bisher zu leisten im Stande waren" (Buchner, Thomas: Der "Satyrische Componist": Im Wirkungsgefüge des musikökonomischen und musiktheoretischen Wandels zum ausgehenden 17.

        The Method to Science.

      London: Printed by W. Redmayne for the Author, and are to be Sold by Thomas Metcalf, , 1696. Octavo (171 x 108 mm). Contemporary mottled calf neatly rebacked. Tiny ownership inscription on front pastedown of Leonard J. Eslick of St Louis University. General light paper toning and foxing. A very good copy. First edition of one of the principal works of the Roman Catholic controversialist and philosopher John Sergeant (1623-1707). "A more thoroughgoing Aristotelian critique of Locke came from... John Sergeant, who, as a Catholic, stood outside the clerical assaults emanating from the established church. Sergeant's critique of Locke was part of a more wide-ranging critique of what he called 'ideists', a category which yokes Descartes and Locke together. He targets Locke in his The Method to Science (1696) and Solid Philosophy Asserted, against the Fancies of the Ideists (1697)... His principal objection to Locke's epistemology was its implicit scepticism. he charged Locke that his natural philosophy failed to provide universal conclusions or maxims" (Sarah Hutton, British Philosophy in the Seventeenth Century, OUP 2015, p. 202). With an interesting provenance: contemporary ownership inscription at head of title page of Thomas Sandys (and one or two neat marginal corrections), possibly the "interloper" or private trader, who, in 1689, was at the centre of a court case against the East India Company. Ownership inscription on verso of front free endpaper: "The property of Shaderick Penn, Bought at Harpers Ferry, Sept the 4 1819 price $1.00"; this may be an alternate spelling of Shadrak Penn Jr, editor of the Louisville Public Advertiser and "the dominant editorial voice in the state for a number of years" (John E. Kleber ed., The Encyclopaedia of Louisville, 2001, p. 569).

        CODEX JURIS ALEMANNICI FEUDALIS .

      Joh. Friderici Spoor, Argentorati (Strassburg) 1696 - Small 4to. (7-5/8" x 5-3/4") . 14 preliminary leaves, an inserted leaf (engraved: "Alphabetum Anglo-Saxonicum") -- 221 ff. ("Das Rehte lehenbuch das zu Nuerenberg wwart gemaht" -- this section is arranged with the medieval German text on the left-hand side, versos, facing Schilter's Latin translation, rectos) -- Following this bilingual text is a 5-1/2 pp. Index (printed in double-columns, with headings in both old German and Latin) ; Next -- is a text: "Jus Feudale Saxonicum. Ab Epkowe de Repkaw." 56 pp. Next follows Johann Schilter's commentary (in Latin) on German Feudal Law -- 658 pp. (This long section also includes a supplement, and several short dissertations on specific related subjects) -- The volume concludes with an unpaginated "Index Rerum et Verborum" [20] pp. The binding is contemporary -- half tan sheep over sprinkled paper-covered boards, raised bands, dark red spine label lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, edges stained red. There is an excellent engraved pictorial bookplate mounted to the front paste-down -- with an identification in old ink MSS of Georgius Albertus Steinheil. And a corroborating ink owner's inscription on the title page. There is some minor rubbing to the spine, and to the corners -- but generally this in excellent condition. The author is known for a compilation of documents of Feudal German history and literature -- "Thesaurus Antiquitatum Teutonicarum." published in Ulm in 1727-8 (see Brunet V: 202) -- which has shown up a couple of times at auction in the last 25 years -- but this earlier work strictly on Feudal and Medieval law appears to be quite rare. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Observations concerning the Original and Various Forms of Government,

      London: Printed for R.R.C. and are to be Sold by Samuel Keble and Daniel Brown [Patriarcha:] Printed for Ric. Chiswell, Matthew Gillyflower and William Henchman, , 1696 & 1680. as described, viz. 1st. Upon Aristotles Politiques. 2d. Mr. Hobbs's Laviathan. 3d. Mr. Milton against Salmatius. 4th. Hugo Grotius, de Jure Bello. 5th. Mr. Hunton's Treatise of Manoarchy, or the Nature of a limited or mixed Monarchy, To which is added the Power of Kings. With directions for Obedience to Government in Dangerous and Doubtful Times. [Together with:] Patriarcha: or the Natural Power of Kings. 2 works bound as one, small octavo (179 x 109 mm). Contemporary panelled calf neatly rebacked (in 1967, according to a pencil note). Engraved portrait frontispiece of Charles II. Discreet book label of the historian Peter Laslett (1915-2001), editor of Filmer (Patriarcha and other Political Writings, 1949). A little wear to corners of binding, bound without the preliminary blank to Patriarcha, neat marginal repair to H3 in Observations. A very good copy. First expanded edition of the Observations (published originally in 1652) and first edition of the Patriarcha, although Johann Sommerville (in his edition of 1991) notes that the Chiswell edition was "probably published later" as it corrects errors in the edition of 1680 published by Walter Davis. These are both key works by the English political writer Robert Filmer (1588?-1653), perhaps best known for being on the receiving end of John Locke's Two Treatises of Government (1690), an "extended attack on the politics of Sir Robert Filmer. Filmer had died in 1653, but his main work, Patriarcha, was not published until 1680. It set out the patriarchal theory of politics in its most extreme and most vulnerable form. For Filmer we are not born free, but in a state of subjection to our parents and to the rulers whom God has set over us. Paternal and political power are ultimately the same: both descend from Adam, who had by right of fatherhood royal authority over his children, and this authority passed to his successors. Locke set out to demolish this theory not merely by severing the chain of argument at its weakest link, but by destroying every part that appeared vulnerable. He argued that Adam never possessed the kind of power that Filmer supposed, and that even if he had done, it could not have been conveyed to his posterity in any manner that could justify the titles of any of the monarchs now ruling. Filmer's theory required that Adam's power descended either by a form of primogeniture, so that at any time there was a single heir who was rightful monarch of the whole world, or to all his descendants—that is, to everyone" (ODNB).

        The Method to Science.

      London: Printed by W. Redmayne for the Author, and are to be Sold by Thomas Metcalf, 1696 - Octavo (171 x 108 mm). Contemporary mottled calf neatly rebacked. Tiny ownership inscription on front pastedown of Leonard J. Eslick of St Louis University. General light paper toning and foxing. A very good copy. First edition of one of the principal works of the Roman Catholic controversialist and philosopher John Sergeant (1623-1707). "A more thoroughgoing Aristotelian critique of Locke came from. John Sergeant, who, as a Catholic, stood outside the clerical assaults emanating from the established church. Sergeant's critique of Locke was part of a more wide-ranging critique of what he called 'ideists', a category which yokes Descartes and Locke together. He targets Locke in his The Method to Science (1696) and Solid Philosophy Asserted, against the Fancies of the Ideists (1697). His principal objection to Locke's epistemology was its implicit scepticism. he charged Locke that his natural philosophy failed to provide universal conclusions or maxims" (Sarah Hutton, British Philosophy in the Seventeenth Century, OUP 2015, p. 202). With an interesting provenance: contemporary ownership inscription at head of title page of Thomas Sandys (and one or two neat marginal corrections), possibly the "interloper" or private trader, who, in 1689, was at the centre of a court case against the East India Company. Ownership inscription on verso of front free endpaper: "The property of Shaderick Penn, Bought at Harpers Ferry, Sept the 4 1819 price $1.00"; this may be an alternate spelling of Shadrak Penn Jr, editor of the Louisville Public Advertiser and "the dominant editorial voice in the state for a number of years" (John E. Kleber ed., The Encyclopaedia of Louisville, 2001, p. 569). Wing 2579. [Attributes: First Edition]
