        Voyages du Baron de La Hontan dans l'Amerique Septentrionale . [Second volume title: Memoires de l'Amerique Septentrionale, ou la suite des Voyages .] Seconde edition, revue, corrigé, & augmentée

      chez Charles Delo, The Hague 1706 - Contemporary calf, covers ruled in blind, spine in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco labels in the second and third compartments, the others with repeat overall tooling in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges, expert repairs to head and foot of spines, contained within a single modern dark red morocco-backed cloth box, "spine" gilt A very fine set of this early edition of a work "written by a man of more than ordinary learning and intelligence" (Sabin). Scarce edition, the second in this form. Lahontan's earlier works (often viewed as a three volume set), are here issued as a two-volume set by the omission of the extraneous voyages to Portugal and Denmark, and a selection was made from the Dialogues. "Lahontan came to America in 1683 & spent the next few years among the Indians & at the frontier posts of the St. Lawrence & the Lakes. Wintering at Michilimackinac in 1688, Lahontan listened to the tales of the coureurs de bois and heard of the famous Rivière Longue, which Charlevoix called pure fiction [and Howes "about as convincing as the legends of the sea-serpent"]. The popularity of his book was rivalled only by Hennepin's. It is of much value as a clear and fearless picture of Canada and the Canadians of his day. His book has a charm which brings one back to it again . . . for spirit and brightness there is nothing in Canadian literature which approaches it, save some of the earlier letters of Lamothe Cadillac" (Larned). Howes L-25; cf. Sabin 38641. (6 x 3 5/8 inches). Titles in red and black. Engraved additional title, 26 plates and maps (including 2 large folding maps, 22 other folding plates or maps).

      1706 - to the Seneschal of Maine "or to the Lieutenant General in the Seneschalcy and President's Seat of Justice of Le Mans", signed also by his barrister Louis Brizbare, saying that the land depends on the "Abbaye de la Couture", and that "he had been appointed commissary of Maître Pierre Menaut, Steward Sequestrator of . the temporals of the said Abbey vacant by the decease of Monsieur de Chamilly, to the extent of half the fruit and grain planted on the said land by the late Paul Foullard and Catherine Adam his wife", but that the local poll-tax collectors for 1705 had laid claim on it for the part planted by Foullard, the Petitioner has harvested, threshed and winnowed the said grain, but as he still has to face the loss of half, to be discharged from his commission, and to recover all his expenses including "travel, attendance and threshing", he petitions to be allowed to auction the grain "on a feast day or Sunday in the Cemetery at the end of Vespers at the parish church . before the senior royal notary", the appropriate signed orders follow, stamp at head with the arms of Le Mans, 4 sides 4to., Le Mans, no date. and 16th-24th July slight fading on final page The orders appoint Maitre Guillaume le Riche to oversee the auction (signed by Lahureau, fee 2s.), inform Menaut it will go ahead, whether or not he attends (signed by Jean Fouché, "1st huissier of audience at the King's Bench of Water and Forest for Maine", fee paid 8s. 6d.) and a similar notice to Ambroise Faudorre, widow Catherine Adam, his wife, and poll-tax collectors Louis Boucher, Clément Bedouin, Clément Guillereaux, Jean Butet and Mathurin Quelquejeu, (signed by Jean Foussenon, Royal Sergeant of the Seneschalcy, fee paid 17s.).

        Traité des pertes de sang de quelque espéce qu'elles soient ; avec leur remède spécifique nouvellement découvert par Helvétius. Accompagné de sa lettre sur la nature et la guérison du cancer. Seconde édition revüe & augmentée.

      Paris, L. d¿Houry, 1706. - 1 vol. in-12, (16), 176 pp., 1 planche dépliante ; pleine basane de l'époque, manque la pièce de titre, coiffe supérieure arasée, coupes frottées, coins émoussés, très petits manques de cuir. Les huit dernières pages (« Addition de quelques remedes singuliers ») ont été barrées d'un trait et il a été ajouté, sans doute de la main de l'auteur, la note suivante : " L'imprimeur a eu l'insolence d'ajouter cette addition." Dans la première partie, l'auteur propose un remède spécifique à base d'alun contre les hémorragies. La lettre sur la nature et la guérison du cancer occupe les pages 115 à 168. La première édition de cette lettre (Paris, Jean Cusson, 1691; in-4, 18 pp.), est fort rare. Helvétius a le mérite d'insister sur l'importance du diagnostic précoce (« Le cancer n'est au commencement qu'une bagatelle »). D'une façon générale, Helvétius estime que l'extirpation est nécessaire, lorsqu'elle est possible. La planche illustre la ¿tenette¿ inventée par l'auteur ¿pour tenir le cancer¿. Cette tenette, qui prit le nom de son inventeur, semble avoir été utilisée pendant 2 à 3 décennies. Les abstentionnistes dénonçaient les douleurs effroyables de l'intervention et J.B.Alliot appela la tenette d'Helvétius « l'instrument de douleur ». Jean Adrien Helvétius (1661-1727), qui naquit en Hollande, d'un père médecin, vint à Paris, où il se maria et devint français. Il guérit le dauphin à l¿aide de l'ipéca, remède qu'il dévoila après avoir fait fortune (le roi lui acheta sa formule 1000 louis d¿or). L'un de ses fils, Jean-Claude-Adrien, fut le premier médecin de la reine. Son petit-fils, Claude-Adrien, deviendra célèbre comme philosophe. P.Darmon, Les cellules folles, p. 81 ; D.

Ex libris de la biblioteca de Antonio Pérez Gómez. =Palau, cuenta: "Contiene además de multitud de romances y sonetos, dos piezas teatrales para representar en Barcelona por la compañía de Manuel García. Desde la página 317 hasta el final: refiere las fiestas de Cañas, justas y toros que celebró la ciudad y el valor y destreza de muchos caballeros que concurrieron a ellas. Hay otros tres romances donde se refieren otras tantas corridas de toros. =José Tafalla Negrete (1636-1696) fue un poeta y jurista español, «Abogado de los Reales Consejos de Aragón», que desarrolló su actividad entre Zaragoza y Madrid. Su obra poética consiste fundamentalmente en poemas descriptivos, introduciendo algunos de los elementos que definirán el pensamiento ilustrado, como la importancia de la razón y su identificación con la luz, la aceptación de la educación de la mujer, la identificación de nobleza con virtud, y, estilísticamente, la sencillez y los periodos simples, con escasez de hipérbatos. Entre ellos hay muchos villancicos, jácaras y jacarandinas sobre santos. Sus temas, habitualmente cotidianos, anecdóticos y triviales. =El libro que presentamos editado póstumamente, Contiene 382 poemas, de los que 183 son romances, 68 décimas, 45 sonetos, 36 quintillas, 17 letras líricas, 8 redondillas, 6 canciones petrarquistas, 4 silvas, 4 madrigales, 4 seguidillas, 3 chambergas, 2 liras y 2 octavas reales. Pedro Miguel de Samper dijo: "Bien grande es la [utilidad] que encierran estas poesías de don José Tafalla, pues no siendo inferiores a los énfasis heroicos de Góngora, a las dulces suavidades de Lope, a las provechosas moralidades de los Leonardos, a la propiedad de frases de Ulloa, a los profundos conceptos de Solís, a las saladas discreciones de Montoro, ni a los vivos picantes de Quevedo, brilla con una especial gracia, que no se encuentra en los otros."

Covers history from pre William the Conqueror to King Henry VII, with contributions from John Milton, Samuel Daniel, John Habington [in fact William Habington], Sir Thomas Moore, George Buck and Francis, Lord Bacon.

With printer error to page 157 - Richard becomes 'Richrad'. Vol II is 792 pp excl index; has bookplate as above; title page in red/black inks; and covers Henry VIII to James I. Authors are Rt Hon Edward Lord Herbert of Cherbury, Sir John Hayward, Francis Godwin, William Campden and Arthur Wilson. With 5 full page plates.

      London: Printed by Joseph Downing., 1706. - Title-leaf, dedication leaf, 92pp. Small quarto. Mid-20th-century crushed morocco, spine and panels ruled in gilt, raised bands, elaborately gilt inner dentelles, by Zaehnsdorf. Very faint contemporary ownership signature at head of titlepage. A very nice copy, from the library of Jay Snider, with his bookplate. Keith arrived in Boston in 1702 as a representative of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, having renounced his previous fanatical attachment to Quakerism. His travels from New England to Carolina during the two subsequent years had him sermonizing before a good number of congregations, as well as taking part in several pamphlet controversies (Sabin attributes some fifty- two titles to him; see "Works of George Keith Printed in America" cited below). He preached in Yorktown, Williamsburg, Jamestown, and other locations along the coast, and made a name for himself by taking on the "stubborn and irascible inhabitants" of the colonies. An important narrative by a major figure of the period. CHURCH 827. STREETER SALE 817. CLARK I:108. SABIN 37199.

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

      Samuel Smith and Benjamin Walford, London 1706 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Meidel had missionized for the Quaker-religion in Norway and encouraged especially "common people" to emigrate to Pennsylvania, which led him to be expatriated in 1703. In 1705 Meidel published a danish translation of a work by William Penn and later he translated works by Robert Barclay, all these were printed in London. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Catalogus systematicus coleopterorum - Catalogue systematique des coleopteres - Systematische naamlyst van dat geslacht van insecten dat men torren noemt. The Hague, Gerrit Bakhuyzen, 1806. 2 volumes. Large 4to (28.5 x 23 cm). With 2 engraved title-pages, 6 half-titles, 105 engraved plates depicting beetles, beautifully hand-coloured, a few highlighted with gold, plates interleaved. Contemporary darkbrown half-morocco, spine with gold-tooled title and neoclassical patterns, marbled sides and endpapers.

      BMC NH, p. 2231; Hagen II, p. 244; Horn & Schenkling 22791; Nissen, ZBI 4259; NNBW X, cols 1127-1128. Beautifully illustrated study on beetles by Johann Eusebius Voet (1706-1778). Johann's father, Carel Borchart Voet (1671-1744 or 1745), who was employed as court painter by the Earl of Portland, had made a series of drawings of insects for King William. Johann followed in his father's footsteps and, in addition to his activities as a medical doctor and his numerous works on new versions of rhymed psalms, worked on the present systematic catalogue of beetles. Voet gives a general introduction followed by a description of the depicted species. In each volume, the text is given first in Latin, then in French and finally in Dutch, each with its own pagination and signature series. During Voet's life the first 48 plates of volume I and the first 24 plates of volume II with the accompanying text in three languages were published. The publisher Gerrit Bakhuyzen approached the heirs and received permission to publish the remaining drawings and papers. The work has been dedicated by Bakhuyzen to Adriana van Sorgen, widow of C.B. Voet, who must have been one of the heirs. The beautiful engraved plates have been accurately drawn and skilfully hand-coloured.With the bookplate of "Le C[om]te Ferdinand du Chastel" on inside front covers, some slight, occasional browning in margins, pl. 41 in volume I double.

This lexicon/encyclopaedia offers also 'Realia', and is a repertorium of 'loci classici' and a source of numerous 'variae lectiones'. (NP 6,51/52, s.v. Iulius IV,17). 'The honour of reviving the study of Greek in the Netherlands belongs to Tiberius Hemsterhuis (1685-1766)'. (Sandys 2,447). At the age of 21 he accomplished the task of completing an edition of Pollux, a project that was abandoned by J.H. Lederlin. In 1717 he was promoted to a professorship of Greek at the university of Franeker, which was the start of the 'Schola Hemsterhusiana'. His best known pupil there was L.C. Valckenaer. In 1740 he left for Leyden 'where, for a quarter of a century he kept the flag of Greek flying in the foremost of the Dutch universities'. His most famous student in Leyden was D. Ruhnken, who wrote in 1768 a 'Elogium' on him which 'is one of the Classics in the history of scholarship'. (Sandys 2,451) The 'Schola Hemsterhusiana' is famous for the publishing of many works of ancient lexicographers. Hemsterhuis advised his students to use especially ancient lexica. These works could be of great use for the understanding of textual problems and the amending of texts of classical authors, and they were of great help to gain a profound knowledge of the Greek language and its vocabulary. (J.G. Gerretzen, Schola Hemsterhusiana, 1940, p. 100/1) (Provenance: Name on front flyleaf 'J. Berlage', Dutch schoolteacher at the Gymnasium of Gorichem at the beginning of the 20th century. He made there a deep impression on the young Alexander Sizoo, later professor at the Free University of Amsterdam. 'Berlage was vooral de aestheticus, die zijn leerlingen ook in aanraking bracht met de klassieke beeldhouwkunst'. (Jaarboek van de Nederlandse Maatschappij der letterkunde, 1962, p. 155; Berlage wrote a dissertation 'Commentatio de Euripide philosopho', Leiden, 1888) (Collation: a6, b-e4, f6; A-4Q4 4R2 4S-8O4, a-y4 z6) Photographs on request..

Smith & Benj. Walford, 1706. 239 x 188 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1706, rebacked, endpapers renewed, a bit rubbed, corners reinforced. First and last leaves a bit soiled and stained, but otherwise a very good, crisp copy. 18th century owner&#146;s signature (A. Worden of Trinity College, Dublin), dated 1740, on title.</p><p>First Edition in Latin of Newton&#146;s Opticks (1704), the most famous English book on optics. This edition contains seven added quaestiones (nos. 17-23), which are partly devoted to Newton&#146;s support for the corpuscular (or emission) theory of light, not found in the English edition. &#147;In the new Queries, Newton expressed fundamental views on the nature of light, on the nature of bodies, on the relation of God to the physical universe, and on the presence in nature of a whole range of forces which furnish the activity necessary for the operation of the world and for its permanence. . . . The new Queries were the most informative of the speculations that Newton ever published&#148; (Westfall, Never at Rest, p. 644). The Latin edition also includes the two mathematical works at the end as in the English edition. As in most copies of this work leaf Ss1 is a cancel; the leaf was replaced because Newton had second thoughts about his original description of universal space as &#147;the sensorium of God&#148; (sensorium Dei). The Latin Optice, which made Newton&#146;s work on optics available to all European scientists, &#147;revolutionized scientific thought and made him recognized as one of the greatest geniuses of all time&#148; (Birren, History of Color in Painting, p. 20).

Martin, 1706. <p>First Paris Book Auction for which a Catalogue was Printed </p><p>[Bigot.] Bibliotheca Bigotiana seu catalogus librorum, quos (dum viverent) summa cura & industria, ingentique sumptu congessere viri clarissimi DD. uterque Joannes, Nicolaus, & Lud. Emericus Bigotii . . . 12mo. [8], 72, [2], 73-220, [2], 248, 59, [1], 31, [1], 31pp. Paris: Apud Joannem Boudot, Carolum Osmont, Gabrielem Martin, 1706. 161 x 94 mm.

A few marginal notes in ink and pencil, including possible prices realized. 19th century bookplates of the Car[dinal] de Beaurepaire and Germain Barré. </p><p>First Edition. The Bigot library sale in 1706 was the first book auction conducted in Paris for which a catalogue was printed. The sale by auction of the Bigot family library was conducted by booksellers Jean Boudot, Charles Osmont and Gabriel Martin over the remarkably long duration of five months. This was Gabriel Martin&#146;s first catalogue, &#147;and according to Bléchet, Jean-Pierre Nicéron was an editor&#148; (North, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions and Sales by Private Treaty 1643-1830 in the Library of the Grolier Club, no. 12). Prior to this auction several auction catalogues for private libraries had been printed in Paris, but these libraries were sold privately and thus never went to auction. </p><p>Bookseller, publisher and writer Prosper Marchand organized and catalogued the sale for Boudot, Martin and Osmont. One of the ways in which the catalogue was notable was in its introduction into bookselling of the classification scheme organizing information into five great divisions: Theology, jurisprudence, philosophy (i.e., sciences and arts), belles-lettres and history. Gabriel Martin, one of the auctioneers of the Bigot library, promoted this scheme, which originated in the seventeenth century and may have first been applied in the Catalogus bibliothecae Thuanae (1679), the catalogue of the library of French historian and bibliophile Jacques Auguste de Thou. Book auctions in France would follow this scheme throughout the 18th century, and in the early 19th century Jacques Charles Brunet elaborated on this basic scheme in his famous Manuel du librairie et de l&#146;amateur de livres (1810). </p><p>The Bigot library was begun by Jean Bigot in the early 17th century, and continued by his son, Louis-Emery. It eventually passed to Robert Bigot, sieur de Monville, and was sold at his death in 1706. The library included that of Jean Henri Jacques de Mesmes, for whom Gabriel Naudé, de Mesmes&#146; librarian, had written Avis pour dresser une bibliothèque in 1627. At the time of sale the Bigot library consisted of 450 manuscripts and over 15,000 printed books. </p><p>At the Bigot auction many books and all the manuscripts were purchased for the Bibliothèque du Roi. Over 150 years later the Bigot manuscripts were catalogued by Léopold Delisle as Bibliotheca Bigotiana Manuscripta. Catalogue des manuscrits rassemblés aux XVIIe siecle par les Bigot, mis en vente au mois de juillet 1706, aujourdhui conservé aux Bibliothèque nationale (1877).

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.

First English edition translated form the Dutch (Amsterdam 1704). The plates are those of the Dutch edition, with the Dutch captions replaced by English. ""The Russian embassy had less trouble with the enormous self-esteem of the Chinese than many earlier and later embassies. Before the Tartars became masters of China, it was almost impossible for foreigners to find admittance to the Imperial Court. Under the emperor then ruling, Kan-hi [K'ang-hsi], ministers were courteously received and enabled to transact their business as at any other court. This accommodation was contrary to the temper and traditions of the old Chinese, who opposed it as much as they dared. Kang-hi was desirous of preventing Russian encroachments upon his territories and the Czar was anxious to establish a regular commerce with China. The expedition added considerable geographical knowledge to the little that was known about Manchuria and China"". (Cox). Cordier BS 2468. Cox, I, p. 331. Lust 519.

        Recueil de Contredances mises en Chorégraphie, d&#39;une maniére si aisée, que toutes personnes peuvent facilement les apprendre sans le secours d&#39;aucun maître et même sans avoir eu aucune connoissance de la Chorégraphie. Par Mr. Feuillet. Maître et Compositeur de Dance

      Paris: L&#39;Auteur. 1706. Small octavo. Full 18th century dark brown mottled calf with raised bands on spine in decorative compartments gilt. 1f. (title), 1f. (dedication to Madame La Duchesse du Maine), 1f. ("Préface"), 13ff. ("Eléments, ou Principes de Chorégraphie"), 192 pp. ("Table" to recto of final leaf, "Privilége" to verso). Engraved throughout. With the contemporary signature of Elisabeth Cremon (?1739-1764) to page 2. With music and choreographic notation for 32 dances for 4 couples. Binding quite worn, rubbed and bumped; spine cracking and with early professional repairs to head and tail; gilt faded; endpapers lacking; joints slightly cracked. Slightly worn and soiled; some staining, most noticeable to gutters, outer edges of last leaves and final leaf; some signatures cracked; small portion of lower outer corners of both title and final leaf lacking and professionally repaired, with missing text completed in calligraphic facsimile. . First Edition. Rare. Derra de Moroda 931. Hirsch I 172. Niles & Leslie I p. 165. Lesure p. 697 (three copies only recorded). Not located in RISM. Feuillet, a French choreographer, dancing-master and author, "worked at the court of Louis XIV. His fame rests on his Chorégraphie [Paris, 1700], a book describing a system of dance notation that was used in Europe throughout the 18th century. He probably did not invent the system himself (although he said he had) but derived it from the original work of Pierre Beauchamps, Louis XIV&#39;s personal dancing-master. Unlike previous methods, which describe movement verbally and use letters to refer to the sequence of steps, Feuillet&#39;s system is a track notation. It represents symbolically not only the steps of the dancer, with his turns, leaps and slides, but also the floor pattern in which he is to travel. The dance music is printed at the top of the page, and the steps are marked off in a manner corresponding to the structure of the music..." "The publication of the Beauchamp-Feuillet notation meant that specific dances could easily be distributed throughout Europe. It also added to France&#39;s pre-eminence in the world of dance. Today the system makes it possible for scholars to study some of the dances in use in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, an important period for the development of the classical French ballet style and technique." Meredith Ellis Little in Grove online The present work "contains a simplified explanation of some elements of chorégraphie, here adapted for the notation of contredanses. The opening section entitled: &#39;Elements ou principes de chorégraphie&#39;... describes the symbols for the track, feet, hands, and arms; the steps; and the relation of floor patterns to musical notation. The subsequent section of notated contredanses provides music and floor patterns for 32 dances, each for 4 couples." Schwartz and Schlundt: French Court Dance and Dance Music, p. 33.

        De jure naturae et gentium libri octo cum annotatis Joannis Nicolai Hertii.

      Frankfurt am Main, sumptibus Friderici Knochii, typis Joannis Andreae, 1706.. Editio nova, a mendis infintis, quibus priores editiones scatebant, diligenter repurgata. Quart. Ganzseitiges Kupferportrait von Pufendorf, Titelblatt mit Vignette in Rot-Schwarz-Dreuck, (24), 1.296, (14) S.; (10), 398, (6) S. Zwei Teile in einem schönen, gut erhaltenen zeitgenössischen Pergamentband.. Epochales Werk zum Naturrecht und erster deutscher Entwurf eines naturrechtlichen Systems einer Privatrechtsordnuing! Die Naturrechtsordnung von Pufendorf nahm breiten Einfluss auf die geistigen Strömungen seiner Zeit, das Werk hatte gesamteuropäische Wirkung. Übersetzungen ins Englische, Französische und Russische waren die Folge und zeigen die epochale Bedeutung dieses Werkes an. Vor allem im Ausland wurde Pufendorf rezipiert, so von John Locke und auch Jean Jacques Rousseau. Auch sein Einfluss auf die Menschenrechtserklärung in den USA ist unverkennbar. Bis zum Jahre 1684 blieb Pufendorf in Schweden, konnte auf eine außerordentlich erfolgreiche Lehrtätigkeit an der Universität zu Lund zurückblicken und wurde schließlich von König Karl IX. zum schwedischen Hofhistoriographen ernannt. Ab dem Jahre 1684, nunmehr erschien erstmals das berühmte Werk in Deutschland, versuchte Pufendorf in Berlin Fuß zu fassen. Dies gelang ihm endlich durch den Willen des Großen Kurfürsten. Versuche, ihn für die neugegründete preußische Universität in Halle zu gewinnen, schlugen jedoch fehl. Pufendorf blieb in Berlin und starb dort am 26. Oktober 1694. Im Anhang sind die Stellungnahmen von Pufendorf mitaufgenommen, die er zur Verteidigung seines Werkes gegen heftige Angriffe publiziert hatte: adversus libros de jure natruali et gentium objecta, weiterhin: Epistola ad Adamum Scherzerum, Theologum apud Lipsienses Primarium Epistola ad amicos suos per Germaniam super libello famoso, quem Nicolaus Beckmannus, quondam Professor in Academia Carolina, nunc vero cum infamia inde relegatus, mentito nomine VERIDICI CONSTANTIS superiori anno disseminavit.

Demi-basane à coins, dos à nerfs, tranches jaspées, qq. taches sur le f. de titre. Reliure de l&#146;époque. 236 X 184 mm. PREMIERE EDITION LATINE DU TRAITE D&#146;OPTIQUE DE Newton, CONTENANT SEPT QUESTIONS EN EDITION ORIGINALE. Elle est ornée de 19 planches scientifiques dépliantes. Wallis, 179 ; Poggendorff, II, 277 ; Honeyman Coll., 2326 ; DSB, X, 56 ; Brunet, 50 ; Graesse, IV, 663; Babson, 137; Gray, 179. « The edition is important not only for the fact that it was carefully read and corrected by Newton but also for the first printing Newton&#146;s views on Iceland spar and six additional questions on the nature of polarized light and speculations about light and atomic structure. It also has been pointed out that the book contains a very early description of sulphuric ether which gives it a place in the early history of aneasthesia. » (Lawson). Cette édition eut un grand retentissement auprès des lettrés et homes de sciences européens. Elle était en effet la première publiée dans leur langue. « In the Opticks, Newton presented his main discoveries and theories concerning light and color in logical order. » (DSB). « Si Newton voulait espérer diffuser le contenu de son Optique en Europe, une édition latine était indispensable. Celle-ci parut en 1706 dans une traduction réalisée par l&#146;ami et partisan de Newton Samuel Clarke. A l&#146;évidence, Newton considérait la publication de l&#146;Optique en latin comme une occasion de dévoiler quelques indices de ses opinions concernant les rapports qu&#146;entretenait la philosophie naturelle avec la théologie naturelle et la religion. Deux des sept nouvelles et copieuses Questions ajoutées à la suite des lapidaires seize Questions originelles comprenaient des affirmations audacieuses sur la théologie naturelle, la preuve physico-théologique, la corruption de la religion par l&#146;idolâtrie et Dieu. Il ajouta des propos à teneur théologique dans l&#146;édition latine de l&#146;Optique, Optice, 1706.» (S. Snobelen, Regards sur l&#146;optique de Newton : 1704-2004). « The first pronouncement on the use of analysis and synthesis in natural philosophy was incorporated in the Latin edition of the Opticks (1706) as Question 23. » (N. Guicciardini, Isaac Newton on Mathematical Certainty and Method, N°4). « Clarke contributed to the image of Newtonianism as the natural ally of godliness in general and English Protestantism in particular. Clarke&#146;s credentials for this role were firmly based on his detailed knowledge of contemporary science in general and Newtonian physics in particular. In 1706, with the approval of Newton, he translated Opticks into Latin. Clarke&#146;s Optice adds seven additional queries. Clarke also played a role in disseminating Newtonianism. Clarke&#146;s ideas were mediated by none other than Voltaire. When Voltaire was in London in 1727, he became personally acquainted with Clarke. As Voltaire&#146;s references to him show, their topics of conversation included Newton&#146;s theories, as well as Clarke&#146;s theological opinions. Voltaire treated Clarke as an important authority, especially in matters of metaphysics. Voltaire&#146;s debt to Clarke means that there is an important sense in which, through Voltaire, Clarke contributed to the French view of Newtonianism. » (R. Hagengruber, Emilie Du Chatelet ). L&#146;optice parut alors que l&#146;auteur avait 62 ans et qu&#146;il se consacrait depuis quarante années à ses travaux d&#146;optique. Cette &#156;uvre résume donc toutes ses études à ce sujet.
