        Reflections on Mr. Burchet's Memoirs: Or Remarks on His Account of Captain Wilmont's Expedition to the West-Indies.

      London 1704 - London, 1704. First Edition. Octavo. [xviii], 171 pp. Period dark brown blind stamped panelled full calf, rebacked in style with red gilt label. Cover corners worn, otherwise a very good copy. "Lillingstone's battalion took part in Robert Wilmot's expedition to Jamaica in 1695, sent in response to alarmist reports that the island had fallen to France. In reality, French forces under Du Casse, based in Hispaniola, had simply raided Jamaica, although much property had been destroyed. Wilmot and Lillingstone attacked the French-held section of Hispaniola in ill-conceived and poorly co-ordinated operations, failing to dislodge Du Casse from the south of the island. Wilmot died late in 1695 but, when Lillingstone returned to England in 1696, he submitted to the council of trade and plantations a scathing indictment of Wilmot's conduct. At the root of the problem was a clash of personalities resulting in a failure of army-navy co-operation. Lillingstone's weakened battalion was disbanded in 1697 and he was reduced to half-pay until 1705, although he was compensated by the retrospective grant of a pension of £200 by Queen Anne on 9 March 1702. In 1702 Lillingstone published an account of the Hispaniola operations and his reputation was further damaged by the rejoinder of Josiah Burchett, secretary of the Admiralty" (Oxford DNB). "Burchett evidently made some unfavorable remarks concerning Col. Lillingston's conduct in the West Indian Naval operations during 1694-97, and in this work the Colonel gives further particulars concerning the expeditions against Martinique and St. Domingo in which he was in command of the landing parties" (Cox II, p438). "Colonel Lillingston was Lieutenant-Colonel of Colonel Ffoulkes's regiment of foot in the Martinique expedition in February to October, 1693. His brother, Jarvis Lillingston, an officer of Gustavus Hamilton's (20th) foot, was made Major in Ffoulkes¿s, and died on the expedition. Colonel Ffoulkes also died on the expedition, and Luke Lillington obtained the colonelcy. The expedition miscarried, and Lillingston's regiment was put on board the homeward-bound men-of-war at Newfoundland and Boston to supply the place of seamen. The regiment, 670 strong, was broken at Plymouth by order of Lord Cutts, and reformed with six hundred men of the regiment and six hundred of Colt, Norcott, and Farrington (29th foot), in December, 1694, and embarked as a reinforcement for Jamaica in January, 1695. That island, still suffering from the effects of the Port Royal earthquake of 1602, had been harried by buccaneering attacks from the French settlement in Hispaniola (St. Domingo). A naval squadron, under Captain Robert Wilmot, with Lillingston's troops on board, acting in concert with the Spaniards, took and destroyed the French port of Porto Paix, Hispaniola. Thereupon the English troops withdrew to Jamaica, and Governor William Beeston reported that Lillingston's regiment was so weak and sickly that he had to send them into the country for change of air. Lillingston went home to recruit, and made various claims on the Government. His regiment disappeared from the rolls on the peace of Ryswick, and he published this reply to Burchett¿s account of the Porto Paix affair, to which Burchett issued a rejoinder."

        Opticks: Or, a treatise of the reflextions, refractions, inflextions and colours of light

      Sam. Smith and Benj. Walford, London 1704 - Optics and Color TheoryNewton, Sir Isaac (1642-1727). Opticks. . . . 4to. [4], 144, 211, [1]pp. 19 engraved plates. London: printed for Sam. Smith, and Benjamin Walford, 1704. 247 x 191 mm. Paneled calf, gilt spine c. 1704, spine repaired, endpapers renewed (endpaper sheets watermarked with date 1802). Insignificant worming in gutter margin of last few leaves, but a fine, clean copy, preserved in a quarter morocco drop-back box. First Edition of the most famous book on optics ever written in the English language; First Issue, without Newton's name on the title and with the two additional mathematical treatises. The Opticks expounds the corpuscular theory of light developed by Newton, which was the dominant theory until modern times when it was combined with the wave theory developed by Newton's contemporary Huygens. The Opticks also contains a full explanation for the rainbow, an explanation of "Newton's rings," and consideration of double refraction in Iceland spar. In color theory, the Opticks provides the starting point for modern concepts. Newton proved experimentally that all colors are contained in white light and devised the first organized color circle to show his concept of seven primary colors. The color circle, illustrated in fig. 11, pl. 3, Bk. 1, pt. 2, has been made use of in virtually all later treatises on color theory.Unlike most of Newton's works, Opticks was originally published in English, with the Latin version following in 1706. As an appendix to the Opticks are two mathematical treatises in Latin which Newton issued in response to Leibniz relative to their dispute over priority in the invention of the calculus. These are Newton's first published works in mathematics. Boyer, The Rainbow (1959) 233-68. Birren, History of Color in Painting (1965) 21ff., 139. Horblit 79b. Dibner 148.

        Discourses Concerning Government, Publish’d from an Original Manuscript. To which is Added, The Paper he deliver’d to the Sheriffs immediately before his Death. And an Alphabetical Table

      London: Printed by J. Darby, 1704. . Second edition, folio, (viii), 424, (48) pp, with some mispagination. Portrait frontispiece, armorial bookplate of Admiral of the Fleet Sir William Rowley (c.1690-1768). Contemporary full panelled calf, rather worn with restoration to corners, rebacked in a lighter calf with a new label and new free endpapers. Elected to the Long Parliament in 1645, Sidney initially opposed the execution of Charles I, but changed his mind during the Interregnum. A period of exile after the Restoration saw him negotiating with Louis XIV for a planned English uprising, and once he had returned to England in 1677 he remained involved in republican politics. Implicated in the Rye House Plot, he was tried and beheaded in 1683.& First published in 1698, this work cemented his reputation as a hero to the Whigs and later the Americans. A motto he wrote in a visitor’s book at the University of Copenhagen was subsequently used on the Seal of Massachusetts.

        De imperio solis ac lunae in corpora humana et morbis inde oriundis.

      Raphael Smith 1704 - FIRST EDITION, title very slightly soiled, pp. [i], xxx, 96, 8vo, a crisp copy in contemporary Cambridge-style calf, corners worn, rebacked, covers bowing, contemporary ownership inscription on title of Wm. Dalzell, on flyleaf of Sam. Caldwell, recording his purchase of the book in Dublin in 1754, good ‘Mead continued his efforts in Newtonian physiology with his next publication, De imperio solis ac lunae in corpora humana et morbis inde oriundis (On the Influence of the Sun and Moon on Human Bodies and the Diseases Arising Thence), published in 1704. Here Mead joined Hippocratic climatic theory with Newton’s theory of the tides, claiming that a tidal flux of the air caused many ailments. This account has variously been termed the last gasp of astrological medicine and one of the first works of Newtonian medicine. The lack of any mathematical foundation makes Mead’s claims to Newtonianism unconvincing, but the case histories he cites, many from Pitcairne, are of interest. Mead’s puritan upbringing is evident in his accounts of providential interventions in the weather, such as the storms which accompanied Cromwell’s death in 1658. This work was . a great success: Halley reprinted it in his Miscellanea curiosa (1708), and an English translation appeared in 1712’ (ODNB). Scarce in first edition. (ESTC T55648)

        Oaths & Declarations": William Penn, Jr. and Quakers Sign Separate Declaration to Sit on Pennsylvania Council with Non-Quakers

      1704 - Manuscript Document Signed. N.p. [likely Philadelphia, Pennsylvania], n.d. [ca. February-September 1704]. 2 pp., on bifolium sheet. 320 x 198 mm. One page docketed on verso, "Oaths & Declarations / of Members of Council / Stenton." Document signed by Pennsylvania's political leaders during a stormy period in the province's history, which saw chronic tensions between Quakers and non-Quakers, between the "lower counties" of Delaware and the rest of the province, and between the proprietor (William Penn) and the Assembly. All the same, the separate signatures on two sheets of paper attests to the landmark commitment of Penn to religious tolerance. TranscriptWe whose names are hereunto Subscribed do solemnly promise and swear that wee and each of us will faithfully discharge the Trust of Members of Council for ye Government of the Province of Pensilvania and Territories to which wee are called to the best of our ability and understanding and that the Secrets of the said Council we will inviolably keep. So help us God Roger Mompesson / Will Rodeney / Willm Trent / Jasper Yeates / George Rocke / James Pidgeon / Ro: Ffrench / Antho[ny] Palmer[2]Wee whose names are hereunto Subscribed do Declare in the presence of Almighty God the Witness of the Truth of what we say That we and each of us will faithfully discharge the Trust of Members of Council for the Government of the Province of Pensilvania and Territories to which wee are called to the best of our ability and understanding and that the Secrets of the said Council we will inviolably keep. Wm Penn Jr / James Logan / Richard Hill / Isaac Norris Samuel PrestonHistorical BackgroundIn 1701, before leaving Pennsylvania to return to England, William Penn instituted the Charter of Privileges (sometimes referred to as the Charter of Liberties), which established his colony's fourth frame of government. One significant clause codified the right to freedom of conscience by providing an option other than oaths for office-holders: "all Persons who also profess to believe in Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World, shall be capable (notwithstanding their other Persuasions and Practices in Point of Conscience and Religion) to serve this Government in any Capacity, both legislatively and executively, he or they solemnly promising, when lawfully required, Allegiance to the King as Sovereign, and Fidelity to the Proprietary and Governor, and taking the Attests as now established by the Law." This freedom was not without controversy, it being held by the Queen-in-Council that oaths were mandatory. However, the religious beliefs of the Quakers prohibited their taking oaths.Pennsylvania's Provincial Council comprised both Quakers and non-Quakers. Following Penn's 1701 Charter, and an additional 1704 Act of the Assembly concerning the regulation of courts, members of the colonial government professed oaths or affirmations, depending on their religious persuasions.Thus, the present document is divided into two halves. The first page is signed by eight non-Quaker members who took the oath written at the top of the page. Under Penn's 1701 Charter, Councilors were appointed by the Proprietor, or by the proprietary governor, and served as an advisory body with little formal powers, but great social stature. It is notable that this document includes the signature of William Penn, Jr. (whose signature is nearly identical to that of his father). Penn, Jr. was only in the colony for six months in 1704, during which time he caused quite a number of disturbances, including a tussle with a member of the city watch. Isaac Norris would write to a friend in September 1704: "William Penn, Jr., is quite gone off from Friends. He being in company with some extravagants, that beat the watch at Enoch Story's . He talks of going home in the Jersey man-of-war next month. I wish things had been better, or he had never come" (quoted in Janney, The Life of William Penn).Although intended .

        Relaçam dos successos da batalha do Danubio, que contem mais individualidades das que athe aqui se tem publicado, acreditades com as copias das cartas, que se escreverão aos Estados Gerais pelos Generais das suas tropas.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Miguel Manescal, Impressor do Santo Officio, & da Serenissima Casa de Bragança, 20 de Settembro de 1704. - Woodcut vignette on title page. Nine-line woodcut initial on p. 1. Large woodcut tailpiece on p. 10. (1 l.), 10 pp. 5 works in 1 volume. 4°, late nineteenth-century quarter sheep over marbled boards (rubbed, wear to corners), flat spine with gilt fillets and gilt lettering, marbled endleaves, text-block edges sprinkled. Light browning; a few small stains. Overall in very good condition. 5 works in 1 volume. ---- FIRST EDITION of these eyewitness descriptions of the Battle of Blenheim, 13 August 1704. Two of the letters are dated 13 August and the other 17 August. Frederick I, landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, and Baron van Hompesch are both reporting to the States General of the Netherlands. They were presumably part of the Dutch contingent that marched south with the Duke of Marlborough, and met up with Eugene of Savoy in July. This report includes details of troop movements during the battle and a list of French officers and battalions that were taken prisoner.At the Battle of Blenheim, the Duke of Marlborough and Prince Eugene of Savoy led English, Dutch, and Austrian troops to a decisive defeat of the French and Bavarian forces under Marshal Tallard and the Elector of Bavaria. This was probably the most decisive victory in the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714); the victory saved Vienna and thus preserved the Habsburg Empire and the Grand Alliance. The French lost some 20,000 men; another 15,000 or so were captured. The myth of the invincible French army was destroyed. Bavaria withdrew from the war (it was soon placed under Austrian military rule), and Louis XIV had to face the fact that he would not win an early, easy victory.The march of John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, from the Low Countries to the Danube, culminating in the Battle of Blenheim, was a model of planning, logistics, and tactical and operational skill. It assured Marlborough's status as one of the foremost military leaders of the age. ---- Coimbra, @Miscelâneas 8675. Not in Innocêncio or Fonseca, @Pseudónimos. NUC: Relaçam dos successos: MH.

Typographical headpiece and woodcut initial on p. 3. FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this account of events in Catalonia during the War of the Spanish Succession. The author recounts how Barcelona?s defenses were improved after D. Carlos captured the city in October 1705, in anticipation of a new attack by the French under the Duc de Noailles. It includes movements of the French troops in Catalonia and their final descent upon Montjuich, whence they began bombarding the city on 8 April 1706. In early August, a fleet under Lord Peterborough arrived and the French withdrew in haste, leaving artillery, ammunition, food, and other goods (e.g., "pares de çapatos doze mil").D. Carlos?s attempts to improve relations with Barcelona?s people and government officials are given considerable space. The Miqueletes, Catalonian militiamen who supported the French, are mentioned several times.The author not only reports military details but expresses strong opinions, e.g., "Para esta empreza se valeo França daquella maxima que lhe vemos praticar com grande fruto ? a qual consiste em exagerar as suas forças, promettendo exercitos, & Armadas formidaveis, que depois na execução se vem serem muito inferiors; & assim publicou que poria sobre Barc [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Historical and Geographical Description of Formosa, an Island Subject to the Emperor of Japan

      London: Dan. Brown; G. Strahan and W. Davis; and Francis Coggan,, 1704. Giving an Account of the Religion, Custom, Manner, &c. of the Inhabitants. Together with a Relation of what happen'd to the Author in his Travels. Octavo (193 × 118 mm). Later lightly sprinkled calf, red morocco label, low bands bracketed by single gilt rules, gilt floral roll to the turn-ins. 16 engraved plates, 2 of them folding, one being the table of the Formosan language. A little rubbed, particularly on the joints, the upper cracked to the cords but holding, head-cap chipped, tan-burn to the endpapers, some browning, that to signature [a] quite strong, small paper flaw to Q5, costing just a couple of letters verso, overall very good. First edition. A very good copy of this, probably the most famous of all historical literary frauds. Psalmanazar was a Gascon who, down on his luck, "in order to gain alms … decided to make his identity more exotic, and posed as a Japanese" (ODNB). As part of this imposture he developed his own "Formosan" language inventing "twenty letters with shapes, names, and pronunciations that resemble some Greek and Hebrew letters", adding "'many other particulars equally difficult, such as a considerable piece of a new language and grammar, a new division of the year into twenty months, a new religion, &c. and all out of my own head". Taken up by a British military chaplain serving in the Low Countries he travelled to England, and within a year of his arrival had published the present history to great acclaim. "the book borrowed a little from Varenius's Descriptio regni Japoniae et Siam, and from the account of Formosa by the Dutch missionary George Candidius, but most of it was pure fiction, and its lurid descriptions of polygamy, human sacrifice, cannibalism and infanticide caused a sensation" (Howgego). His fraud was widely suspected from the outset, but Psalmanazar continued to exploit "his feigned origins" successfully for some years, but at around age thirty "apparently after reading William Law's Serious Call to the Devout and Holy Life" he turned over a new leaf becoming "pious and productive member of Grub Street" (ODNB). What is known of the actual facts of his life emerged from his posthumous Memoirs, published 1764. This copy with the ownership inscription of John Duke Coleridge, first Baron Coleridge, Lord Chief Justice, 1880-94, to the third front blank, and some pencilled notes in his hand at p.42 relating to the involvement of Mr. Innes, the chaplain , in Psalmanazar's imposture. Coleridge was also a noted bibliophile, he "had a great love and wide knowledge of English literature, especially of the poetry and drama of the Elizabethan period … William Butterfield designed an enormous and splendid library for him at his Devonshire seat, Heath's Court, Ottery St Mary, to contain 12,000 volumes, including a substantial collection of Elizabethan literature" (ODNB).

Exercitationum is a "collection of ten anatomical and surgical essays by the celebrated Leyden anatomist. In the two essays on the nerves Bidloo maintains that the nerves do not contain fluid but are rather a mass of fibers. In the seventh essay, De oculo purulento (p. 73-82), the treatment for hypopyon is described" (Bernard Becker Collection in Ophthalmology, 49). CONDITION & DETAILS: Leiden: Jordanum Luchtmans. 1708, 1716, and 1725. 4to. 7.75 by 6 inches.

      SECOND EDITION OF A VERY RARE WORK by the celebrated Dutch anatomist and surgeon Govard Bidloo. Expanded from the first edition, this work is illustrated with sixteen handsome copper-engraved plates. The first edition of 1704 was illustrated with only seven. The Exercitationum is a "collection of ten anatomical and surgical essays by the celebrated Leyden anatomist.

In the seventh essay, 'De oculo purulento' (p. 73-82), the treatment for hypopyon is described" (Bernard Becker Collection in Ophthalmology 49). Bidloo (1649-1713) is most famous for his rare and highly prized anatomical atlas, Anatomia humani corporis, which is very rarely on the market. "Bidloo, professor of anatomy at The Hague, was at one time physician to William of Orange. An English contemporary, William Cowper, furnished his Anatomy of humane bodies almost completely with engravings plagiarized from this book by Bidloo, who promptly and publicly excoriated Cowper in a published communication to the Royal Society. Before the days of copyright, this is one of the most famous instances of plagiarism in the history of medicine" (Heirs of Hippocrates 667, citing Anatomia corporis humana). Bound with Muys, Wijer Willem. Dissertatio et observationes de salis ammoniaci praeclaro ad febres intermittentes usu and De Gorter, Johannes.

These works are technically quarto in size-and are catalogued as such in the collections in the major institutions, but the outer margins were trimmed pretty closely when bound.

English panelled calf (very beautifully rebacked & recornered by Aquarius, minor dustiness), green morocco lettering piece on spine. London: S. Smith & B. Walford, 1704. First edition, and a fine, fresh copy, of one of the great classics in optics. "All previous philosophers and mathematicians had been sure that white light is pure and simple, regarding colours as modifications or qualifications of the white. Newton showed experimentally that the opposite is true: there are pure coloured rays which cannot be analysed by refraction, such as the green of the spectrum; just as there are coloured rays which can be analysed, such as the green formed by mixing blue and yellow light. Natural white light, far from being simple, is a compound of many pure elementary colours which can be separated and recompounded at will."-Printing & the Mind of Man 172. This book is distinguished in two other ways. First, it contains Newton's earliest mathematical papers in print, published here for the first time to assert his priority over Leibniz in the invention of the calculus. Second, it contains his set of sixteen "Queries" on the nature of matter which, in the 18th century, was considered to be the most important feature of the Opticks and had a profound influence on scientific thought. Very good and crisp copy. With the modern bookplate of Jean Michel Cantacuzène, a member of the princely family of Wallachia, Moldavia, and Russia.

In color theory, the Opticks provides the starting point for modern concepts. Newton proved experimentally that all colors are contained in white light and devised the first organized color circle to show his concept of seven primary colors. The color circle, illustrated in fig. 11, pl. 3, Bk. 1, pt. 2, has been made use of in virtually all later treatises on color theory.</p><p>Unlike most of Newton&#39;s works, Opticks was originally published in English, with the Latin version following in 1706. As an appendix to the Opticks are two mathematical treatises in Latin which Newton issued in response to Leibniz relative to their dispute over priority in the invention of the calculus. These are Newton&#39;s first published works in mathematics. Boyer, The Rainbow (1959) 233-68. Birren, History of Color in Painting (1965) 21ff., 139. Horblit 79b. Dibner 148.

Lexicon technicum: Or, an universal English dictionary of arts and sciences: Explaining not only the terms of art, but the arts themselves. 2 vols., folio. Unpaginated; collation available on request. Engraved portrait frontispiece by G. White after R. White in Vol. I, 14 engraved plates, text woodcuts. London: Dan Brown, Tim. Goodwin, John Walthoe [etc.], 1704-1710. 320 x 205 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1704-10, rebacked, endpapers renewed. A few plates toned, but a fine copy. Armorial bookplate of John Manley, Esq. in Vol. II.</p><p>First Edition of the first English dictionary of arts and sciences, and the earliest modern encyclopedia of science. Harris was the first to make the distinction between "word-books" (dictionaries) and "subject-books (encyclopedias), and his <i>Lexicon Technicum </i>is the first English encyclopedia to be arranged in alphabetical order, as opposed to systematic order in the tradition of the medieval encyclopedist, Isidore of Seville. </p><p>A clergyman educated at Oxford, Harris took an early interest in science, and was elected to the Royal Society in 1696. As a result, he had access to many of the greatest scientific minds in England, and the <i>Lexicon technicum <i/>may be the first example of an encyclopedist relying directly on the consultation and help of experts or specialists, such as John Ray and Isaac Newton. In particular Harris relied heavily on the writings of Isaac Newton as a source, quoting lengthy excerpts from them under such headings as "Attraction," "Colour," "Fluxions," "Gravity," "Light," and "Motion." The introduction to Vol. II contains the first printing (in Latin and English) of Newton&#39;s "De natura acidorum," his only published work on chemistry; and the articles "Quadrature" and "Curves" give the first English translations of the "Two treatises" from Newton&#39;s Opticks. </p><p>The first edition of volume 2 was published together with the second edition of volume 1. Therefore sets of the first edition of both volumes of <i>Lexicon Technicum </i>are rare on the market. Babson Supplement, p. 55. Collison, p. 99.
