Folio (measures 9 by 13-1/2 inches), early 19th-century full dark brown tree calf neatly rebacked with original gilt-decorated spine panels laid down, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges; pp. (16), 604, (10). $2600.1706 edition, the last folio edition of LockeÂ’s remarkable study of the nature of knowledge and the last with alterations by Locke. A handsome, wide-margined copy.""Locke was the first to take up the challenge of Bacon and to attempt to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge when confronted with God and the universe"" (PMM 164). Locke's conclusion—that while man can never attain a perfect and universal understanding of the world, he can gain sufficient knowledge to secure his own well being—became a touchstone for the Age of Enlightenment. With the Essay Locke initiated the criticism of human knowledge and furthered the discourse on free inquiry. ""The Essay Concerning Humane UnderstandingÂ… was the first attempt on a great scale, and in the Baconian spirit, to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge"" (Fraser). A notable inclusion in this edition is Locke's Letter to Bishop Edward Stillingfleet, his Reply, and his second Reply, with brief quotations from the bishop. Yolton 65. See PMM 164. Bookplate of renowned American banker Frank A. Vanderlip, Sr., who rose to prominence around the turn of the last century as the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during the McKinley administration and later helped lay the groundwork for the Federal Reserve Act; he also ""led National City Bank to become the nation's preeminent financial institution"" (ANB).

        Catalogus centuriae librorum rarissimorum manuscript. & partim impressorum, Arabicorum, Persicorum, Turcicorum, Graecorum, Latinorum, &c.

      Uppsala, Sparvenfeld, 1706. - Small 4to. (6), 74 pp. With a woodcut garland of fruits, leaves and nuts on the title-page, 1 woodcut headpiece and 1 woodcut decorated initial. Set in roman, italic, Arabic and Greek type. Later paper wrapper. Catalogue of the collection of 126 Persian, Arabian, Turkish, Greek, Latin and other books and manuscripts donated to the Library of the University of Uppsala by the diplomat Johan Gabriel Sparwenfeld (1655-1727). It was compiled by the Swedish scholars Eric Benzelius the younger (1670-1756) and Olaus Celsius the elder (1675-1743). The main series of manuscripts, described in great detail, includes 41 in Arabic, Persian and Turkish, 8 in Greek (one dating back to the eighth century) and 12 in Latin and modern European languages. These are followed by 42 printed books including 2 in Chinese, several in Arabic, the 1581 Ostrog Bible and several other exotic languages, including Irish (set in Anglo- Saxon type). A few more manuscripts (mostly Arabic) are added at the end, plus an unnumbered geographic manuscript in Chinese (3 volumes). This is the earliest catalogue of the Uppsala University Library's collections. The Arabic, Persian and Turkish titles are set in a large Arabic type cut for the physician and orientalist Peter Kirsten by the Swedish punchcutter Peter von Selow (who served his apprenticeship under Tycho Brahe) and first used at Breslau in 1608. Werner, printer to the university at Uppsala since 1701, seems to have been the first Swedish printer to use types by Nicolaus Kis, two of his italics and one roman appearing in the present book, though not the roman used for the main text. After finishing his studies at Uppsala, Sparwenfeld travelled throughout Europe and accompanied the Swedish ambassador to Moscow, where he took an interest in Slavonic languages. On his travels he collected many precious books and manuscripts. In 1687 he returned to Stockholm, where he carried out a study of manuscripts from the ancient Goths. He travelled to Holland, France and Spain, dealing with the Blaeu printing office and mediating in the production of Georgian type cut by Nicolaus Kis for the exiled King of Georgia. In 1691 he travelled to Egypt, Syria and Tunis. Though a Protestant, he presented the manuscript of his Slavonic lexicon to Pope Innocent XII, who granted him access to the Vatican library, a rare honour for a Protestant. He returned to Sweden in 1694. He continued to correspond with scholars throughout Europe even after he retired to his estate 1712. He wrote and spoke 14 languages. - In very good condition, with only occasional very slight foxing, wholly untrimmed, preserving the deckles and point holes and with the bolts unopened. A remarkable catalogue of an extraordinary library, especially rich in Arabic manuscripts. Almqvist, Sveriges bibliogr. litteratur 2838. Smitskamp 113 (note).

        Histoire de L'Abbaye Royale de Saint-Denys

      1706. First Edition . FÉLIBIEN, Michel. Histoire de L’Abbaye Royale de Saint-Denys en France. Paris: Frederic Leonard, 1706. Thick folio (10-1/2 by 15-1/2 inches), contemporary full brown mottled calf rebacked with the original gilt-decorated spine laid down, raised bands. $3500.First edition of this authoritative description and pictorial inventory of the Cathedral of Saint-Denis, with engraved frontispiece by De Poilly, two double-page plans (the town of Saint-Denis and the Cathedral), 12 engraved plates (ten double-page) of precious objects and tombs, and 12 combinations of historiated headpiece and initial letter.The Cathedral of Saint-Denis is considered an architectural landmark, as it was the first major structure designed and built in the Gothic style. “Both stylistically and structurally it heralded the change from Romanesque architecture to Gothic architecture. Before the term ‘Gothic’ came into common use, it was known as the ‘French Style” (Opus Francigenum). Like most Medieval cathedrals, Saint-Denis held many treasures— reliquaries and liturgical vessels made of precious materials, as well as the “regalia” (objects used in the coronation of French Kings). One of the major sources of information about the rich collection in the treasury of Saint-Denis is this work by Dom Michel Félibien, containing both descriptions and a visual inventory of these objects, many of which were dispersed or destroyed during the French Revolution. Félibien’s illustrations provide critical documentation as to these original holdings, especially the contents of the four armoires in which the treasure was displayed throughout the 18th century. The earliest account of Saint-Denis is an anonymous manuscript in the Bibliothéque Nationale, entitled Descriptio qualiter Karlus Magnus. It was composed and written at Saint-Denis before 1100 and probably even before the First Crusade. Félibien has included this text along with his own elaborate description of the church, together with an account of the privileges and lives of its abbots and benefactors. “So high a reputation did this work gain for its author as a learned, painstaking and faithful historian, that the merchants of Paris… applied to Dom Félibien to write a history of Paris, L’Histoire de la Ville de Paris, published posthumously in 1755” (Charles Knight). Text in French. Brunet II, 1203. Graesse II, 561. Plates fine, only scattered foxing to fore-edge margins of text. A nearly fine copy.

        Optice; sive de reflexionibus, refractionibus, inflexionibus & coloribus lucis libri tres.

      London: Samuel Smith and Benjamin Walford, 1706. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. First Latin edition. 219 leaves, [14] 1-348, 1-24, [2] 1-24, 21-43 [1] pp. 19 folding engraved plates, some damp spots to first few leaves, wormtrails and holes in margins and just affecting last two or three plates, contemporary vellum, remnants of leather spine label. ----Babson 137; Wallis 179, Norman 1589. - The first edition of OPTICKS was printed two years earlier in English and without Newton's customary use of editorial assistance. He then employed Samuel Clarke to make a Latin translation with the addition of seven new Queries. At the end of the book are two mathematical treatises, DE QUADRATURA and ENUMERATIO LINEARUM TERTII ORDINIS, which Newton added to establish his priority over Leibniz in the invention of the calculus. Next to the PRINCIPIA, the OPTICKS stands as Newton's greatest work. Much of the a OPTICKS was written thirty years earlier and finally put into print in 1704, just a few months after Newton assumed the chair as President of the Royal Society. It summarized his discoveries and theories concerning light and color, the spectrum of sunlight, the degrees of refraction associated with different colors, the color circle, the invention of the reflecting telescope, the first workable theory of the rainbow, and interference effects in conjunction with Newton's rings. It expounds his corpuscular or emission theory of light. Very Good.

Absent à Brunet qui ne parle que des éditions de 1720 et 1734. L'ouvrage en latin est paru pour la première fois en 1672. Reliure en demi basane blonde d'époque à petits coins de velin.

Trace de mouillure jaune sur les 8 premières pages du tome II. Ouvrage le plus célèbre de l'auteur qui le fit considérer comme le fondateur de la science du droit public. Grand classique de la théorie du droit naturel, Pufendorf prolonge les réflexions de Hobbes sur le contrat qui lie le peuple au souverain en mettant des bornes à l'absolutisme, il considère la paix comme un des principes déterminants du droit naturel. Quant au droit international, Pufendorf approfondit les notions de guerres justes et injustes. L'auteur innove sur de nombreux points, tout d'abord le droit naturel est pour lui inhérent à la condition humaine qui fait de l'homme un être sociable. La société devient un être moral fondé sur des conventions et qui formalise le contrat social. En outre, l'auteur cherche à fonder une science du droit, en s'appuyant sur une méthode mathématique révélée par la philosophie cartésienne. Jean Barbeyrac, savant austère et protestant, professeur de deroit à Lausanne, avait également traduit Le droit de la guerre de l'autre grand juriste de l'époque, Hugo Grotius., sa lecture critique du texte est très importante par ses nombreuses notes de bas de pages. On lira sa longue préface contenant son commentaire de l'oeuvre de près de 100 pages.

        Advices from Parnassus, in two centuries.

      London: Printed by J. D. for Daniel Brown, Benjamin Took and Bernard Lintot, Andrew Bell and James Round, Daniel Midwinter and John Barnes,, 1706. With the political touchstone, and an appendix to it. To which is added, a continuation of the advices, by Girolamo Briani of Modena. All translated from the Italian by several hands. Revis'd and corrected by Mr. Hughes. With an alphabetical table to the whole book. Quarto (322 x 195 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, decorative gilt spine, red morocco label, speckled edges. Head of spine chipped, slight wear to corners a few light scratches to binding. A very good copy, crisp and tall. First edition in English to be "revis'd and corrected" by the busy and versatile Augustan writer John Hughes (1678?-1720) - "the most qualified librettist of his day" (ODNB), contributing notably to Handel's Acis and Galatea (1718), working alongside Pope and Gay - who supplied translations of Latin and French classics, particularly to Jacob Tonson, the leading publisher of the period. He also wrote for The Tatler and The Spectator. In his "Advertisment" he states that "The persons concern'd in the Translation having thought that my reviewing the Stile might be useful to 'em, I was prevail'd with to do something of this kind". "Traiano Boccalini (1556-1613), prose satirist and anti-Spanish political writer, influential in the Europe of his time for a widely circulated satire, Ragguagli di Parnaso (1612?13; 'Reports from Parnassus'). The son of an architect, Boccalini was educated for the law and spent many years in Rome in the papal service (1584?1612), becoming acquainted with many eminent men of his day. After 1612 he lived in Venice, where, in contact with the papal nuncio, he was probably occupied with diplomatic activities. Boccalini's political experience is mirrored particularly in Ragguagli di Parnaso, a light and fantastic satire on the actions and writings of his contemporaries, written in the form of 201 ironical newsletters in which the wise men of all centuries, presided over by Apollo, discuss art, literature, and politics. Another series appeared in Pietra del paragone politico (posthumously published, 1614; 'Political Touchstones'), a vigorous denunciation of the Spanish domination of Europe. They were widely translated, the first English version being by Henry Carey, 2nd Earl of Monmouth, and called Advertisements from Parnassus; in Two Centuries with the Politick Touch-stone (1656). This and other European translations influenced Miguel de Cervantes, Joseph Addison, and Jonathan Swift" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). English versions of Boccalini's "Parnassus" had first appeared in the 1620s. Provenance: bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, who inherited and improved a successful group of retail pharmacies, John Hayhurst & Son, based in Nelson, Lancashire, and became an avid collector of naval history and of eighteenth-century literature in contemporary bindings; "Mr. R. J. Hayhurst believes that most pharmacists neglect one of their most valuable assets ? the tradition and dignity of the pharmacy. His historical sense, indeed, is no narrow one, for his feeling for the past reveals itself also in his hobbies. A collector of books, in a delightful room at his home, white-painted bookshelves stacked high on all the available wall space show to advantage the hand-tooled leather bindings of a collection that has been acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September, 1957). A lovely copy in contemporary panelled calf.

Text in Dutch or Flemish, translated from the English, 1706, 8vo, approximately 180 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, vignette on title page, folding map of middle east and India, 2 folding engraved plates, printed in black letter, pages: (4), 61, (5), bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label to spine, new endpapers. Occasional light browning to pages, otherwise a very good clean tight copy of a rare travel book. There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captain Robert Covert, it seems he was steward on the 'Ascension' which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in London in 1612 and again in 1614.
