        [Armorial Binding] Praedium Rusticum

      Paris [Lutetiae Parisiorum]: Apud Joannem Le Clerc, M. DCC. VII. [1707]. First Edition. Full Calf. Fine-. 12mo: [6],268,[12], with engraved initials and head and tail pieces, and 10 charming full-page plates by Laurent Cars after Dumesnil, one at the beginning of each book. In Latin. Full speckled calf, contemporary to publication, covers framed in blind with gilt-stamped coat-of-arms on both, spine in six compartments richly gilt, red leather lettering piece gilt, edges speckled red, marbled end papers. About Fine, joints skillfully reinforced; clean, well-margined leaves with occasional mild foxing and edge stains; most plates with faint tide mark to upper edge. Huzard II 944. Thiébaud 917-918. Schwerdt II, p. 278-79. First Edition (according to Schwerdt, but Thiébaud calls the Paris edition of 1696, which is "fort rare," the "Édition originale") of this didactic poem in ten books praising the pleasures of life in the countryside. Vanière instructs on the art of gardening while inspiring, in picturesque verse, a love of weather and landscape, the grape harvest, winemaking, hunting and fishing, orchards and vegetable gardens, and bees. His poems were highly esteemed, with editions of Praedium Rusticum issued for more than a hundred years, until 1829. The 1707 edition contains ten books, but the poem would ultimately comprise sixteen, in the second edition of 1730. The title refers to Charles EstienneÂ’s sixteenth-century treatise on gardening of the same name, but VanièreÂ’s poem is more than a reiteration, also providing a response to Rene Rapin (a French Jesuit, as was Vanière), emphasizing the value of herbs and vegetables over flowers and topiaries, which Rapin championed in his Hortorum (1665). Vanière's instructive content and practical perspective made his poem one of the most popular published in seventeenth century France. Gilt-stamped arms on both boards are those of Henry William Paget (1768-1854), 2nd Earl of Uxbridge and, later, 1st Marquis of Anglesey. A distinguished officer, Paget commanded the English cavalry at the battle of Waterloo, where he lost a leg. N. B.

      1707 - of which 23 bear the dates of university terms, namely 1630 ('Termino Paschae', Easter) and 1691-1707 (Hilary, Easter & Trinity, Michaelmas, with a few gaps), usually with 'Exhibitum' ('Exhibited in'), 2 are marked 'Actiones' for 1705 to 1706, and 1706 to 1707, in each case 21st December, all these on vellum , typically 3" x 2", and three are on paper, each with the name of a lawsuit, 10" x 6", 5" x 7" and 4" x 7", [Oxford], 1630 and 1691 - the vellum tags pierced for stringing, the paper ones very dust-soiled The earliest tag, for 1630, has a note in Latin "In this term died the honourable noble William Lord Pembroke, Chancellor". And the later of the 'Actiones' has a note in English, "Jan. 2. 1764. Examined for Admissions of Principals of Halls. None". The Law Suits are: 1. John Heywood and Anne his wife against Jo: Howlett in a case of injury and Jo: Howlett against the said Heywood by way of recompense. Pencil note 1691. 2. Process between Collubery [sic] Croke of Studley Priory and the Hon. Charles Finch, Doctor of Laws [of All Souls, c. 1659-1706], in a case of Matrimony or Betrothal. 1691 and 1692. 3. Process of Jo: Greenway and Charles Greenway of the University of Oxford, Gents., against Henry Paye and Edward Prince in a case of debt and damages. 1693 and 1694. Let Thomas Hearne tell the story of no. 2: 'Dr. F above mention'd, some years agoe, being at Dick Clarks at Iffley, where there was a Merry Meeting, abt. 9 or 10 at night, after a great many things pass'd between him & Mrs. Colebury Crooke, sister to Col. Crooke of Studley, was, as 'tis said, married to her, by Mr. Rich. Houghton, A.M. & chaplain of Queen's Coll. & Dr. Halton's Curate at Iffley. When this matter began to be discours'd of in Oxon, and nois'd abroad, Dr. Finche's Friends made him utterly disown the marriage, as some think, contrary to his own inclinations. Upon this the Matter was brought into the Vice-Chancellor's Court: Mr. Houghton, partly out of fear of incurring Dr. Halton's displeasure, & partly for some other Reasons, best known to himself, shuffled in the court, & would not own that Dr Finch repeated the words after him; and Dr. Bourchier, the Judge of the Court, being influenced by My Ld Nottingham, & as I think, some Guineas, the power whereof he is not proof against, adjudg'd the matter in favour of Dr. Finch, & so the matter was drop't, tho' with this Proviso that Dr. Finch should allow her some consideration, wch. accordingly, as I am told, he did.'

        Collectio nova patrum et scriptorum Graecorum, Eusebii Caesariensis, Athanasii, & Cosmae Aegyptii.

      Paris, Claude Rigaud, 1707. - 2 volumes. Folio. With 4 engraved plates, and 3 woodcut illustrations in the text. Each volume with an engraved headpiece, the first incorporating the coat of arms of Pope Clement XI, and the second that of Jean-Paul Bignon. Contemporary calf, richly gold-tooled spine and binding edges. First edition, second issue, of a monumental collection of Greek voyages, often overlooked in the literature, including the first complete edition of Cosmas of Alexandria's celebrated Christiana topographia. Cosmas, a merchant from Alexandria, sailed in the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf and visited Ethiopia ca. 530. Though he was known as "Indicopleustes", or Indian Voyager, it is doubtful whether he actually visited India. In his Christiana topographia Cosmas aimed to show that the earth was flat and the cosmos shaped like rectangular vaulted box. Several of the engravings in the present volume, reproduced from a manuscript, illustrates this view. In one of them the earth is shown as a rectangle with three notches, one of them representing the Arabian Gulf, and the whole surrounded by a an ocean, with in the east another rectangle representing Paradise, out of which four rivers flow into the inhabited world. Slightly browned, with some occasional minor foxing or thumbing, and some faint stains, otherwise in very good condition. Binding also very good, only slightly rubbed and the spine of the second volume slightly damaged at the top. Howgego, to 1800, C199. Cf. Dilke, "Cartography in the Byzantine Empire", in: Harley & Woodward (eds.), The history of cartography I, pp. 261-263. [Attributes: First Edition]

About this last rule for determining the number of imaginary roots of a polynomial (which Newton offered without proof), Gjertsen (p. 35) notes: "Some idea of its originality ... can be gathered from the fact that it was not until 1865 that the rule was derived in a rigorous manner by James Sylvester." The final chapter, on the extraction of roots, is by Edmund Halley. "In fulfillment of his obligations as Lucasian Professor, Newton first lectured on algebra in 1672 and seems to have continued until 1683. Although the manuscript of the lectures in [Cambridge University Library] carries marginal dates from October 1673 to 1683, it should not be assumed that the lectures were ever delivered. There are no contemporary accounts of them and, apart from Cotes who made a transcript of them in 1702, they seem to have been totally ignored. Whiteside (Papers V, p. 5) believes that they were composed 'over a period of but a few months' during the winter of 1683-4" (Gjertsen, pp. 33-4). The course of lectures stemmed from a project on which Newton had embarked in the autumn of 1669, thanks to the enthusiasm of John Collins: the revision of Mercator's Latin translation of Gerard Kinckhuysen's Dutch textbook on algebra, Algebra ofte stel-konst (1661). Newton composed a manuscript, 'Observations on Kinckhuysen', in 1670 (see Whiteside, Papers II) and used it in the preparation of his lectures. He took the opportunity not only to extend Cartesian algebraic methods, but also to restore the geometrical analysis of the ancients, giving his lectures on algebra a strongly geometric flavor. "When Newton resigned his Lucasian professorship to his deputy William Whiston in December 1701, it was natural that the latter should wish to familiarize himself with the deposited lectures of his predecessor" (Whiteside, Papers V, p. 8). Whiston later claimed (in his Memoirs, London: 1749) that Newton gave him his reluctant permission to publish the lectures. Whiston arranged with the London stationer to underwrite the expense of printing the deposited manuscript and then subsequently, between September 1705 and the following June, corrected both specimen and proof sheets as they emerged from the University Press. The completed editio princeps finally appeared in May 1707, priced at 4s. 6d., without Newton's name on the title page, although references inside the work made no attempt to hide the author's identity. It included an appended tract by Halley on 'A new, accurate and easy method for finding the roots of any equations generally, without prior reduction' (pp. 327-343). Publication of the work had been delayed by Newton, who complained that the titles and headings were not his and that it contained numerous mistakes. Yet when he prepared a second edition in 1722 the changes he introduced were "primarily reorderings of his own manuscript, not corrections of Whiston's additions" (Westfall, p. 649). In reality, Newton's misgivings probably derived more from his reluctance to place before the public a relatively immature and poorly organized work, and one that did not take into account the developments in the subject that had taken place in the quarter century since the manuscript was composed. For a book that was to become Newton's most often republished mathematical work, the Arithmetica initially made little impact in Britain, and was not even graced by a review in the Philosophical Transactions. On the Continent the reception accorded the lectures was more positive. "Leibniz, unhesitatingly divining their author beneath the cloak of anonymity, gave them a long review in the Acta Eruditorum of Leipzig in 1708. Written thirty years before, he noted, and now deservingly printed by William Whiston, he assured the reader that 'you will find in this little book certain particularities that you will seek in vain in great tomes on analysis.' His close associate, Johann Bernoulli, despite some adverse remarks paid Newton the compliment in 1728 of basing his own course on the elements of algebra upon Newton's text. Perhaps partly in consequence of Newton's recent death, in Britain too the book began about this time to arouse greater interest than when it was first issued in 1707" (Hall, p. 174). Despite the impressive contributions of the work to the theory of equations, mentioned earlier, it is difficult to pigeonhole the work as being either algebraic or geometric. From one point of view, the Arithmetica can be seen as a fulfillment of the programme outlined by Descartes in the Géométrie because it teaches how geometrical problems (and also arithmetical and mechanical ones) can be translated into the language of algebra. Paradoxically, however, Newton criticized Descartes, maintaining that, at least in some cases, Apollonian geometry is to be preferred to Cartesian algebra in the analysis of indeterminate problems. Modern analysts, he complained, had confused algebra and geometry: "The Ancients so assiduously distinguished them one from the other that they never introduced arithmetical terms into geometry... recent people by confusing both, have lost the simplicity in which all elegance in geometry consists" (Whiteside, Papers V, p. 429). The last section of the work 'The linear construction of equations' (pp. 279-326), is particularly anti-Cartesian (the term 'linear' in this context does not refer to straight lines but derives from Pappus). Newton here deals with the problem of constructing cubics (third-degree equations) that Descartes solved via the intersection of a circle and a parabola. Newton proposed instead to use a curve of degree higher than the conics as a means of construction, namely the conchoid (a fourth-degree curve). Newton regarded the conchoid as preferable because it has a mechanical construction and leads to a more elegant solution of the problem. William Whiston (1667-1752) was "a member of the first generation of Cambridge students to emulate Newton's method and principles. He went up to Cambridge in 1686, claimed to have attended one or two incomprehensible lectures by Newton on his Principia, and was elected a Fellow of Clare Hall in 1691. After taking orders he left Cambridge for a while, returning in 1700 when chosen by Newton to be his deputy as Lucasian Professor. About a year later, upon Newton's resignation and commendation, Whiston succeeded him. Aberrant theology was to be his downfall. While Newton and their common friend Dr Samuel Clarke kept private their doubts about Trinitarianism, the Creed and the Thirty-nine Articles, Whiston sought publicly to amend the errors of the Anglican faith; for this he was summoned before the heads of houses in the university and dismissed from his post in 1710" (Hall, p. 175).

      [Rouen: no printer,] 1707 - Quarto (247 x 190 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt roll tool border to covers, spine elaborately decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. Extremities with very slight rubbing, engraved bookplate removed from front pastedown with loss of marbled paper; a very fine copy. Large folding table, "Formulaire qui peut servir pour tout un pays" at page 192. Very rare first edition, first issue (with B4 in uncancelled state: on p. 16, a setier is given as weighing 170, rather than 240 pounds), and a notable rarity, of "an erudite economic work much in advance of its time, and distinguished both by accuracy of method and breadth of view" (Palgrave), "creditable alike to the heart and the head of its illustrious author"(McCulloch). Carpenter lists six other printings dated 1707, all in smaller format, and eight subsequent editions before 1710, including the English translation A Project for a Royal Tythe (1708; reissued in 1710 as An Essay for a General Tax). "Though the book was published anonymously, and only a few copies issued [for circulation among friends], Vauban had to submit to the mortification of seeing it 'pilloried' by the parliament, while he himself incurred the displeasure of the king [Louis XIV]. A few weeks later he died" (Palgrave). Although the renowned soldier-engineer Vauban (1633–1707) wrote on a very wide variety of subjects apart from economics – fortifications, war, naval matters, religion, agriculture, population and colonization – the Projet d'une Dixme royale is an outstanding work in the field of public finance. Its two most notable features are its understanding of the central role of fiscal policy in economic reform – the result of an exceptionally comprehensive grasp of the economic process – and its use of detailed numerical data to substantiate conclusions. Schumpeter pronounced the work "unsurpassed, before or after, in the neatness and cogency of the argument Purposeful marshalling of all the available data was the essence of his analysis. Nobody ever understood better the true relation between facts and argument. It is this that makes him an economic classic in the eulogistic sense of the word, and a forerunner of modern tendencies" (History of Economic Analysis, p. 204). According to Boislisle, the first edition was printed in Rouen in 1706 at the initiative of the Abbé de Beaumont (who is actually credited with the authorship of the work by Boisguilbert). Vauban had the sheets bound by the widow of a certain Fétil, and took great pains that the book did not have any public circulation. It was prohibited on 14 February 1707, but apparently the police were only able to seize two copies. To the police, the binder declared she had had 264 copies in total, 12 bound in morocco, the rest in calf. The two copies seized at the Abbé de Beaumont's were described as in "veau fauve" and marbled parchment.

        Strabonis rerum Geographicarum Libri XVII.

      Amsterdam: Joannes Wolters, 1707. Folio, with a fine engraved title-page, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; small blind-embossed library stamp on preliminaries; a handsome copy in contemporary vellum; spine decorated in gilt between raised bands, leather label, covers ornately gilt with complex central emblematic device. The best edition of Strabo's enormous Geography, his kolossourgia or colossal work as he described it himself. The influential Greek geographer who travelled widely, studied under both Aristotelian and Stoic teachers, and spent some decades in Rome, wrote his work early in the first century. Along with the less-known geographers Aratus and Geminus, Strabo promulgated the idea that the torrid zone of the spherical globe was occupied throughout its length by an ocean which divided his continent from another antipodal one in the southern hemisphere.This edition is based on the critical edition by the great classical scholar Casaubon, here further edited with the addition of extensive notes from the best commentators, and with the addition of text that had been omitted from the sources available to Casaubon. 'The annotations of preceding learned men are arranged with skill in their respective places, by the care and diligence of [this edition's editor] Almeloveen' (Dibdin).The "Geographies" of Strabo were 'by far the most important source for ancient geography, a priceless document of the Augustan age, and a compendium of important material derived from lost authors' (OCD). The work represents the classical world's most significant contribution to the science of geography. The first surviving attempt to collect all geographical knowledge that existed and to compose a general treatise on the subject, it was mainly based on ancient Greek sources. It survived in various manuscripts into the age of printing; however earlier printed editions of the text, including the Aldine edition of 1516, were based on corrupt manuscripts and it was not until 1587 that Casaubon improved the text for this edition, revising it again in 1620. Casaubon's edition of Strabo remained the basis of all subsequent editions until the nineteenth century.For a very full modern analysis of the work see Daniela Dueck, Hugh Lindsay and Sarah Pothecary, Strabo's cultural geography: the making of a kolossourgia (Cambridge, 2005). A little wear to hinges which are strong.

Contemporary full calf, the spine, in six compartments, very richly gilt with a red morocco label lettered in gilt. A very handsome, well-preserved copy Sabin 5116. Howe B-410. Church 821. JCB I 93. Near Fine First French Edition (with a new title page) of the first history of the Virginia colony "penned by a native and the best contemporary account of its aboriginal tribes and the life of its early settlers." (Howes) Sabin calls Beverley the "best authority," affording the "most vivid, comprehensive, instructive, and entertaining picture of Virginia at the date of his writing" and quotes Pinkerton: "A work of considerable merit." Beverley's History, one of the most outspoken books of Americanism before the War of Independence, satirized the 'Rapacious and Arbitrary' English governors and objected to the 'heavy Impositions' put upon the American colonies by the English, while celebrating Virginia's history and laws, featuring stories of early Virginia?including the Lost Colony and Pocahontas saving Captain John Smith?which became standard features of American history. Even so, large parts of the History derived from existing sources, though Beverley often gave even the borrowed material his own interpretation.

Three works bound in one, contemporary calf, skillfully rebacked and repaired, some foxing and dust soiling to margins, library stamps to titles. ----I. Garrison-Morton 2731; Norman 1273; Wellcome III, p.441. -- First edition. The work that "laid the foundation for a true understanding of cardiac pathology" (Garrison-Morton). In it he gives the first description of valvular vegetation, and an historical survey of the literature and classification of cardiac diseases. The title-page is in the 2nd, or b, state of three states known. Whereas priority cannot be determined with certainty, it is assumed that state b was printed before state c (D.M.Schullivan, A survey of variant title page vignettes in Lancisi's De subitaneis mortibus, J. Hist. Medicine 38 (1983), p.336). ----II. Heirs of Hippocrates 689; Osler 3149; Waller 5543; Wellcome III, p. 441; Norman 1274. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE EARLIEST WORKS ON ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH. As papal physician for 30 years, Lancisi was deeply interested in public health and epidemiology, and his research into contagious diseases was well in advance of his time. 'In the present work, the first on municipal hygiene, he examined what he considered to be the health-affecting aspects of the Roman environment, particularly her water supply and the insalubrious Pontine marshes' (Norman). A few years later Lancisi published a study exclusively devoted to the disease-causing effects of the marshes (De noxiis paludum effluviis libri duo, 1717), in which he reported on his research into malaria, epidemic in Rome, attributing the disease 'by a brilliant intuition' (DSB) to the proliferation of mosquitoes in the swamps, and urging that they be drained, unfortunately without success. The second part of the present work describes the devastating influenza epidemic that originated in Italy in 1709 and swept through most of Europe. Before his death Lancisi donated his personal medical library of over 20,000 volumes to the Hospital of Santo Spirito in Rome for the education of its physicians and surgeons. The Lancisi library, which opened in 1716, remains one of the more important collections for the study of the history of medicine. 1707, 1711, 1715. Very Good.

FIRST EDITION, with the EXCEPTIONALLY RARE SECOND VOLUME. The author was the first to use a watch to count the pulse-his watch ran for a minute-which made an accurate study of the rate of the pulse possible; his method is now, of course, universal. He also tried to estimate the blood volume and to compare it with the body weight. In the appendix there is a translation of extracts from the rare work on Chinese medicine by Cleyer (1682) dealing with Chinese pulse lore. "Before watches had hands to record the seconds, Floyer invented a pulse-watch which divided the minute. He was the first to count the pulse with the aid of a watch and to make regular observations on the pulse-rate" (Garrison-M.). Volume I has an advertisement for other works by Floyer and 'The pulse watch', printed as a single leaf (chi1) with the note "Place this after the Contents". Volume II has a variant title-page: The pulse watch...; these essays are added as an appendix, I. An essay to make a new sphygmologia..., II. An inquiry into...the respirations..., III.

        Histoire naturelle des quadrupèdes ovipares et des serpens [= Histoire naturelle, vols. XXXVII-XXXVIII].Dordrecht, A. Blussé and son, 1799. 2 volumes. 4to. With 63 full-page engraved plates. 19th-century uniform half calf, gold-tooled spines.

      - Landwehr, Coloured plates 45; Nissen, ZBI 678; Schuh's Biobliography of mineralogy (online ed.), Buffon no. 4. The reptile and amphibian section of Buffon's monumental work on the general and particular natural history. Many species (frogs, snakes, lizards, salamanders, turtles, etc.) are depicted in their natural habitat. The work is here in the new edition published at Amsterdam and Dordrecht, the only quarto edition to rival the original French Imprimerie Royale edition. The last 2 leaves in vol. 1 give a list of the plates for both volumes.Georges Louis Leclerc (1707-1788) -- in 1717 his father became Comte de Buffon and Louis XV later made Georges Comte de Buffon -- was an inconspicuous student who only showed a special talent for mathematics. Initially he combined a career in finance with one in science, translating important works by Hales and Newton into French. In 1739 Buffon became director of the Jardin du Roi, later the Jardin des Plantes, and the Histoire naturelle may have originated as a description of the royal collection. It appeared from 1749 to 1804 and eventually comprised 44 volumes. Buffon was assisted among others by the anatomist Louis Daubenton, and the final volumes were completed after his death under the direction of Comte de Lacépède.From the Stedelijk Gymnasium Bibliotheek, with its stamp on title-pages and a few flyleaves. The present series on reptiles and amphibians had been followed (rather than preceded) by the series on minerals, so that the bindings are numbered 25 and 26. Bindings show some wear and abrasions.
