Still a fine and wide-margined copy. ----Babson 199; Wallis 277; Gray 277; DSB X, p.93. - FIRST EDITION and one of thousand copies published of Newton's lectures delivered while Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University between 1669 and 1702. The book was published and edited by William Whiston, who succeeded Newton as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge in 1701. "The Universal Arithmetic, which is on algebra, theory of equations, and miscellaneous problems, contains the substance of Newton's lectures during the years 1673 to 1683. His manuscript of it is still extant; Whiston extracted a somewhat reluctant permission from Newton to print it, and it was published in 1707. Amongst several new theorems on various points in algebra and the theory of equations Newton here enunciates the following important results. He explains that the equation whose roots are the solution of a given problem will have as many roots as there are different possible cases; and he considers how it happens that the equation to which a problem leads may contain roots which do not satisfy the original question. He extends Descartes' rule of signs to give limits to the number of imaginary roots. He uses the principle of continuity to explain how two real and unequal roots may become imaginary in passing through equality, and illustrates this by geometrical considerations; thence he shews that imaginary roots must occur in pairs [. . .] The most interesting theorem contained in the work is his attempt to find a rule (analogous to that of Descartes for real roots) by which the number of imaginary roots of an equation can be determined." (W.W.R. Ball, A Short Account of the History of Mathematics, pp. 330-31). Newton is recorded as having taken remarkably little interest either in the work or its original publication. 14 months afterwards, David Gregory reported that Newton 'has not seen a sheet of it, nor knows he what value it is in, nor how many sheets it will make, nor does he well remember the contents of it. He intends to goe down to Cambridge this summer and see it, and if it does not please him to buy up the copyes' (The Newton Handbook, p. 33). Newton complained, in fact, that Whiston had introduced titles and headings which were not his own and that the edition contained numerous mistakes. Nevertheless, it was fifteen years before a second edition was prepared, by John Machin in 1722; yet although advertised as having been revised and corrected by the author, Newton's own changes then were in fact minimal. Despite all this, and the fact that it was first published anonymously, the work proved to be one of Newton's more popular books and in 1720 it was even translated into English. Very Good.

      Venezia 1707 - Rarissima carta, tratta dal "Teatro della Guerra diviso in XXXXVIII parti" del Coronelli edito a Venezia (sebbene nel frontespizio sia indicato Napoli) tra il 1706 ed il 1709. La raccolta comprende centinaia di vedute, carte geografiche e nautiche di tutte le parti del mond.

Alcune carte derivano da quelle già incluse nel testo del Isolario del 1696, con alcune varianti; la maggior parte delle vedute viene tuttavia realizzata appositamente per l'opera.

A very rare map taken from Coronelli’s "Teatro della Guerra diviso in XXXXVIII parti" published in Venice (though the front page says Naples) between 1706 and 1709.

Ermanno Ermao, who studied Coronelli’s production, wrote "it is not easy to determine how many and which are the volumes that belong to the collection ". The volume that describes the Kingdom of Naples has been published in 1707. Some of the maps derive from those already published in the Isolario in 1696, with minor changes; nonetheless, the majority of the views has been realized exclusively for this collection.

        [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.

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.

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.

        Arithmetica Universalis; sive de Compositione et Resolutione Arithmetica Liber. Ciu accessit Helleiana Aequationum Radices Arithmetice Inveniendi Methodus ...

      Cambridge / London: Typis Academicus / Benjamin Tooke, 1707. First edition of Newton's treatise on algebra, or 'universal arithmetic,' his "most often read and republished mathematical work" (Whiteside). "Included are 'Newton's identities' providing expressions for the sums of the ith powers of the roots of any polynomial equation, for any integer i [pp. 251-2], plus a rule providing an upper bound for the positive roots of a polynomial, and a generalization, to imaginary roots, of René Descartes' Rule of Signs [pp. 242-5]" (Parkinson, p. 138). 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).

Allgäu), ?Abbten beyder befreyten Stifften und Gottshäusern St. Gallen und St. Johann im Thurthal [.], Meinem gnädigsten Fürsten und Herrn? (Vgl. HLS). -- P. Heinrich Hegner (1649-1726 Gnadental b. Niederwil Kt. Aargau), von Lachen Kt. Schwyz, Profess in Wettingen 1666, Priester 1673. ?Das Jahr 1684/85 brachte er nicht ganz freiwillig - animi mutabilitas wurde ihm damals vorgeworfen - im Kloster St. Urban zu?, danach war er u.a. Pfarrer in Wettingen, Magdenau SG u. in Kalchrain TG. ?Der Jubelpriester wurde am 16. Okt. 1723 nochmals Beichtiger in Gnadental, wo er am 13. Mai 1726 als Senior-Jubilar, 77 Jahre alt, sein Leben beschloß. [.] Seine Leiche wurde in Gnadental bestattet.? (D. Willi, Album Wettingense, 2. Aufl. 1904, Nr. 652, p. 118 f.). Willi zählt 3 gedruckte Werke Hegners auf, wovon nur das erste, eine Biographie des hl. Bernhard, 1702 in der Klosterdruckerei Wettingen produziert wurde (vorliegender Titel nicht erwähnt). - Offenbar war die um 1670 eingerichtete Wettinger Klosterdruckerei nur sporadisch in Betrieb; der erste Druck datiert von 1671 (F. Blaser, Daten zur Geschichte des Buchdrucks, in: Der Schweizer Sammler, Bd. 15, 1941, H. 1-2, p. 9). Peter Wegelin berichtet, dass der Wettinger Konventual Joseph Meglinger [Luzern 1634-1695 Wettingen; s. HLS], von Luzern, sowohl Buchdrucker als zugleich Eigentümer des Materials gewesen sei, und merkt an: ?Auch in diesem Stifte wurde viele Jahre hindurch nichts mehr gedruckt; seit einiger Zeit aber widmet sich neuerdings ein Mönch dieser Beschäftigung.? (In: Die Buchdruckereien der Schweiz. St. Gallen 1836, p. 81 f.). D. Willi (op. cit., Nr. 638, p. 110 f.) bezeichnet P. Josef Meglinger, Priester und studierter Theologe, als einen gelehrten Mann; von einer Tätigkeit als Schriftsetzer und Buchdrucker ist keine Rede, wie ohnehin die Druckerei nicht thematisiert wird. - Das Aargauer Zisterzienserstift Wettingen ?soll schon 1663 [Akzidenz-] Schriften [i.S.v. Typen, Lettern] von Einsiedeln, und später von dem Benediktinerstift Disentis für klostereigene Drucksachen entliehen haben. Dann wurden eigene Schriften [d.h. Lettern u. Setzkästen] angeschafft und eine Druckerei eingerichtet. Als Drucker fungierte Pater Joseph (Karl Jost) Meglinger [.]. Neben den kleinen Drucksachen für das Kloster sind 23 Drucke im 17. Jhdt. bekannt geworden. Die Druckerei bestand mit Unterbrechungen bis zum Jahre 1841.? (R.I.E.C.H., online). An diesen Umständen dürfte es denn gelegen haben, dass das Buch seinerzeit nicht in Wettingen gedruckt wurde. -- Zu (Dom) Philippe Collard O.S.B., dit François vgl. BNF mit 5 Publikationen (Ph. François) aus der Zeit von 1613 bis 1645. Möglicherweise handelt es sich um eine Bearbeitung des Titels: Le Novitiat [Noviciat] des vrais benedictins.
