        The Natural History of Oxford-shire, Being an Essay towards the Natural History of England,

      Second Edition with large Additions and Corrections,: Also a short Account of the Author, etc., [xi], 366, [ix] - index, [i],with 16 fine copper-engraved plates at pages 16, 93, 101, 106, 112, 127, 130, 143, 149, 215, 243, 245, 277, 279, 335, and 364. Large folio, contemporary panelled calf, hinges cracked but firm, no label, with the engraved armorial bookplate of the one-time Prime Minister The Earl of Rosebery, Oxford, Lichfield, 1705. Without the engraved map [as often], otherwise a very fine, clean and bright copy. * FURTHER PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST * Robert Plot (1640 -1696) English naturalist, first Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, Plot entered Magdalen Hall, Oxford in 1658 where he graduated with a BA in 1661 and a MA in 1664. Plot subsequently taught and served as dean and vice principal at Magdalen Hall while preparing for his BCL and DCL, which he received in 1671 before moving to University College in 1676. By this time, Plot had already developed an interest in the systematic study of natural history and antiquities. In June of 1674, with patronage from John Fell, the bishop of Oxford, and Ralph Bathhurst, vice-chancellor of the university, Plot began studying and collecting artifacts throughout the nearby countryside, publishing his findings three years later in The Natural History of Oxford-shire. In this work, he described and illustrated various rocks, minerals and fossils, including the first known illustration of a dinosaur bone which he attributed to a giant (later recognized as the femur of a Megalosaurus), but believed that most fossils were not remains of living organisms but rather crystallizations of mineral salts with a coincidental zoological form. The favourable reception of his findings not only earned him the nickname of the "learned Dr. Plot," but also led to his election into the Royal Society of London on 6 December 1677, where he served as the society's secretary and joint editor of the Philosophical Transactions (144-178) from 1682 through 1684. Another implication of his success was his appointment as the first keeper of the newly established Ashmolean Museum in 1683, as well as his simultaneous appointment as the first professor of chemistry in the new well-equipped laboratory housed within the museum. - Wikipedia

        Othello

      London: Printed for R. Wellington, 1705 Seventh and final quarto edition. Lightly browned with some spotting and marginal dampstaining, small stain to title affecting advertisement at foot. Modern speckled tan three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gold-stamped red morocco spine label. Housed in a brown cloth folding box. Quartos represent the earliest and rarest printed material offered by William Shakespeare. Seldomly surviving the 17th century, they were sold unbound and usually used for the stage by actors. Othello was first published in quarto format in 1622 and was then included in the First Folio edition of collected plays. It is one of Shakespeare's most popular tragedies, conveying important lessons about love, war, and racism. The ambiguity of Othello's race is one of the most intriguing and enduring aspects of the play. Although generally described to be dark-skinned, it is unknown whether he is African, Arab, or a dark-skinned European. Othello experiences discrimination while serving as a soldier in Europe, but his devoted wife Desdemona sees him only for his merits. Othello is timeless, warning us of the perils of self-isolation and the necessity of unconditional love.. Hard Cover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended

      London: Tonson Osborn and Longman. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, complete with three folding engraved plates of the Temple of Solomon. "In his old age, Newton turned again to the theological interests that had burned with consuming intensity during the years of his early manhood... In the years 1705-1710, he returned to theology with renewed vigor, and for all his editions of the Principia and Opticks, theology was the primary occupation of his old age... Newton's conclusions in theology had been as radical as his conclusions in natural philosophy. So far they had seen the light of day only within a limited circle of trusted confidants... "Newton had been at work revising his interpretation of the prophesies and other theological works for about ten years when Caroline, princess of Wales, heard about his new principles of chronology in 1716. Interested, she summoned Newton and asked for a copy of what he had written. Newton never lightly surrendered one of his compositions. He had even less desire to hand over to the princess of Wales a treatise which might still have contained assertions heretical enough to secure his instant dismissal from the Mint. Well schooled as he was in the art of delay, he pleaded that the work was 'imperfect and confus'd,' but he knew very well that one did not dally with a royal command. In haste he drew up an 'Abstract' of his chronology, what was later called the 'Short Chronology,' which put the work into 'that shape the preperest for her Perusal...,' and delivered it to the princess in a few days. By themselves, cut off from the 'Origines' which was their source, there was nothing very novel in the ideas the 'Abstract' presented and nothing to excite odium. By disguising radical theology as chronology, Newton had made it safe enough even for royal consumption. "Newton had not heard the last of the 'Abstract,' however. A copy made its way to France where a translation, entitled Abrege de la chronologie, was published in 1724, together with a refutation composed by Nicholas Freret of the Academie des Inscriptions et Belles-lettres. Nor were the Abrege and the 'Remarks' the end of the business. Father Etienne Souciet, another expert on ancient chronology, published five dissertations against Newton's system of dates. Initially Newton, who was now an old man, undertook to ignore the attacks in order to avoid another controversy. Eventually he changed his mind and decided that he must defend himself by bringing his full treatise on chronology out. He was at work revising it when he died. We should not from that conclude that the work was unfinished. Endless revision, however minute the alterations, was Newton's fate. Conduitt published the full volume, The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended, in 1728, the year after Newton's death." (Richard Westfall, The Life of Isaac Newton). London: Tonson, Osborn, and Longman, 1728. Quarto, early full calf gilt rebacked with original spine laid down. Light wear to binding. A FINE COPY, with extraordinarily large margins.

El autor (Zaragoza, h. 1646 - id., h. 1705), ilustre historiador aragonés, buen escritor, poeta, conocedor de las matemáticas, dedicado a servir varios puestos oficiales de Aragón, como la Secretaría del reino, secretaría del brazo de la Iglesia en las Cortes de 1684.

      Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Baleu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle città", manchevole delle piante di gran parte della parte settentrionale della penisola. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata ?Nouveau Theatre de l?Italie?. L?opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall?aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell?opera. L?atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all?inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell?opera diede origine ad un?ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione.

        Tortona. Ville du Duch? de Milan, en Lombardie. Exactement Dessin?e sur le Lieu.

      Amsterdam, Pierre Mortier, 1705 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, colore d'epoca, cm 42 x 52,3 circa (alla lastra) pi? margini; titolo in alto a sinistra, entro cartiglio "Tortona. Ville du Duch? de Milan, en Lombardie. Exactement Dessin?e sur le Lieu", accompagnato dalle indicazioni tipografiche. Bella pianta della citt? di Tortona, allora appartenente al Ducato di Milano. Veduta tratta primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" (la veduta riporta il numero XVII, in lastra in alto a destra), pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704 - 1705 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Blaeu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle citt?", manchevole delle piante di gran parte dell'Italia settentrionale. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attivit? editoriale, pubblic? tre volumi sulle citt? italiane, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli, Sicilia (a partire dal 1663); alla sua morte gli eredi diedero alla luce altri due volumi, incentrati sulle citt? del Piemonte e della Savoia (1682), e poi ristampati da altri editori (1693 e 1697). Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblic? una ristampa nel 1704 - 1705, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie", opera in quattro volumi che comprendeva le lastre del Blaeu, in piccola parte ritoccate e modificate, ma con l'aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le citt? della parte settentrionale della penisola, appunto racchiuse nel primo volume dell'opera. L'atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese e olandese. La particolarit? che differenzia le edizioni di Blaeu e di Mortier ? rappresentata dal fatto che il testo, nelle edizioni del Mortier, non ? al verso della singola mappa (che ? quindi bianca al verso), ma si trova all'inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell'opera diede origine ad un'ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724 - 1725. (Bibliografia: Cremonini pp. 83 - 90). Pieter Mortier (1671 - 1711) e David Mortier, fratelli di estrazione francese, ebbero interessi editoriali che coprivano un ampio raggio comprendendo opere francesi, inglesi e olandesi. Pieter venne probabilmente iniziato alla gestione dell'attivit? editoriale a Parigi; David pass? molti anni in Inghilterra, tanto che prese la nazionalit? britannica e l? mor? nel 1728. Dopo la morte di Pieter, la vedova gest? l'attivit? finch? il figlio, Cornelis, fu in grado di occuparsene; poi, nel 1721, Cornelis inizi? la sua collaborazione col cognato, Johannes Covens, dando vita alla famosa "Covens and Mortier" (nel 1721 Cornelis spos? la sorella di Johannes Covens e, nello stesso anno, lui e Johannes diedero inizio alla loro collaborazione), una ditta che, anche grazie ai loro successori e nonostante alcune piccole modifiche apportate la nome, divenne una delle pi? importanti case di produzione di mappe e rimase in piedi fino alla met? del XIX secolo. Esemplare lievemente e uniformemente ingiallito, in tenue coloritura e in ampi margini, buona conservazione. .

      Added fine allegorical title, vignette on printed title, fine port. of Rumpf, five head- & tail-pieces, & 60 fine plates (all engraved; two small & unimportant wormholes in outer margin to the final 50 plates, not touching the images).

(incl. added title & port.), 340, [43] pp. Folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over wooden boards, stamp of the Jesuits in center of upper cover, orig. clasps & catches. Amsterdam: F. Halma, 1705. First edition, and a magnificent copy, of this notable cabinet catalogue which describes Rumpf's great collection of marine flora and fauna, minerals, and fossils. This is one of the most important of the early shell books. Rumpf (1627-1702), went to Amboina, a relatively small island in the Banda Sea west of New Guinea in 1653. There he gathered natural history specimens and experienced a remarkable series of disasters: he went blind, his wife was killed in an earthquake, the original drawings for his Herbarium Amboinense were consumed in a fire, and the manuscript of the first six books of the same work were destroyed by the French during a military action. "This remarkable man was employed by the Dutch East India Company and spent the greater part of his life on the island of Amboina (Ambon), a small but important trading centre in the East Indies, where he conducted innumerable observations on plants and animals...Day by day Rumphius accumulated manuscript descriptions and drawings of everything he observed. Alas, total blindness robbed him of the chance to publish his work himself...Even a cursory examination of the Amboinsche Rariteitkamer reveals the outstanding talents of its originator; for the 'Amboinese Curiosity Cabinet', despite its unpromising title, is full of accurate and detailed observations on the invertebrate animals encountered by him and molluscs are given special attention....He was a brilliant field naturalist. He was also a man with a remarkable gift for descriptions."-Dance, Shell Collecting. An Illustrated History, pp. 46-48. The finely engraved added title-page is a masterpiece. We see a shell museum with a group of scholars studying and arranging shells with cabinets flanking and behind them. The room is viewed through an arch with a shell-cartouche with "Arcimboldo"-like shell grotesques, flanked by statues of Cybele and Poseidon. Bearers bring baskets and boxes of shells and other specimens to the scholars. An East Indian landscape is in the background. The fine portrait shows the blind Rumpf at his desk, surrounded by books, shells, plants, and other natural history objects. Very fine copy. Most of the engraved plates are after drawings by Maria Sybilla Merian. ❧ Casey Wood, p. 545-"This rare folio is important because of its early descriptions and depiction of faunal (mainly marine) life in the Dutch East lndies (the Moluccas especially) at the end of the seventeenth century."

        De Legibus Hebraeorum Ritualibus et earum Rationibus. Libri Tres. Editio Tertia

      Ioh. Frid. Zeitlerum Leipzig Ioh. Frid. Zeitlerum 1705 Third edition vg Quarto. [20], 1504, [82]pp. Original full vellum with gold-stamped lettering and borders on spine. All edges red. Marbled endpapers. Ex-libris of Biblioth. Collegii Carol and ex-libris of Ducis Brunsvicensis et Luneburgensis at rear of front board. Illustrated woodcut vignette on title-page. Decorative initials, head- and tailpieces. 2 green ribbon markers. In his chief work, Spencer deserted the time-honoured paths traced by commentators, and 'may justly be said to have laid the foundations of the science of comparative religion. In its special subject, in spite of certain defects, it still remains by far the most important book on the religious antiquities of the Hebrews' (Robertson Smith, Religion of the Semites, 1894, Pref. p. vi). The remarkable nature of Spencer's achievement is enhanced when, it is remembered that oriental studies were then in their infancy, and that he was compelled to derive nearly all his data from classical writers of Greece and Rome, from the Christian fathers, the works of Josephus, or from the Bible itself. Spencer professed that his object was 'to clear the Deity from arbitrary and fantastic humour,' but it was inevitable that his orthodoxy should be questioned. 2 small scratches on front board. Minor age-toning on covers. Spine slightly soiled. Contemporary annotation at back of fly leaf. Some sporadic damp-staining on outer margin of pages (never affecting text). Text in Latin with some Hebrew. Binding in overall very good, interior in very good to near fine condition.
