        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.

        Histoire de la Virginie

      Amsterdam Chez Thomas Lombrail 1707 12mo; [4], 432, [16]pp, plus 14 finely executed plates (based on the engravings from the first part of Theodor De Bry's Grand Voyages) and a folding table. Engraved title page, with the coat of arms of Virginia, precedes the printed title page. Translated from the English ("The history and present state of Virginia, in four parts," first published in 1705). 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.

All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

      Amsterdam, Paul Marret, 1707, pet. in 12, de 5ff. 139pp. 2ff., illustré d'un frontispice et de 35 planches gravées par Schoonebeck h. t. et représentant les expériences de Torricelli, Pascal etc, pl. veau époque, dos orné, qq. ff. brunis sinon bon exemplaire. La première édition très rare est de 1688. C'est le premier traité consacré à ces instruments, et le premier à donner les règles de la graduation des thermomètres. Les expériences sur le vide venaient d'avoir lieu, c'est pourquoi il unit dans son traité les hygromètres et les thermomètres. ¶ Sotheran I. n°929 "The earliest account dealing exclusively with the subject, and especially valuable as the first work laying down rules for the graduation of the thermometer." - DSB p. " His detailed description of the principal meteorological instruments of the period is enriched with several new ideas, such as the calibration of the thermometric scale on the basis of two points of change of state: the point at which water freezes and - a much more contestable point - that at which butter melts." - Wellcome II. p.28 - Pas dans Poggendorff.

      Rome: 1707. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Sammelband of three important works by Lancisi. I.: De subitaneis mortibus libri duo. Rome: J.F. Bugani, 1707. First edition, title in state 'b' with woodcut Papal arms of Clement XI, 4to (227x173 mm), [20], 243 [1] pp., half-title and initial blank, library stamp on title & two other leaves, slightly spotted; II. [Idem] Dissertatio de nativis, deque adventitiis Romani coeli qualitatibus. Rome: F. Gonzaga, 1711, [16], 258, [20] pp., title vignette, with final blank; III. [Idem] Dissertatio de recta medicorum studiorum ratione instituenda, habita ad novæ Academiæ alumnos, & medicinæ tyrones in Archinosocomio. Rome: J. M. Salvioni, 1715, [6], 53 [1] pp., title vignette. 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. A letter concerning the rupture in the lungs, which is the cause of the asthma in mankind... with an individual title-page for essay III. The second volume (often lacking) was published in 1710 and contains the first English translation of Michal Piotr Boym's 1682 Specimen medicinae Sinicae, on Chinese pulse lore (see Garrison-Morton 6492). Complete sets of this work are very rare, volume II usually being missing; even the Dr. Bedford copy in the Royal College of Physicians is imperfect. *Denis Gibbs was co-editor with Philip K. Wilson of "Advice to a Young Physician" by Sir John Floyer MD (1649-1734) of Lichfield in Staffordshire, William Sessions Ltd, 2007. Very Good....

        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.

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.

"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. See Arthur Michel de Boislisle, La Proscription du projet de Dime Royale et la mort de Vauban (Mémoire lu à l'Académie des sciences morales et politiques), Paris, 1875.

        Specimen rei nummariae (= Thesaurus numismatum). Textband und 2 umfangreiche Tafelbände.

      Folio (38 x 24 cm). Textband: 354 Seiten (recte 254 S., pag. springt von S. 122 auf 223). Die Seiten 1-126 sind gedruckt, die Seiten 127 bis 254 sind als Text gestochen. - Die 2 Tafelbände enthalten 6 Teile mit je einem gestochenen Titelblatt und zusammen 337 Kupfertafeln. Halbpergamentbände der Zeit (Textband am Rücken mit leichter Stoßstelle). *Tafelbände: 1. Numismata Graeca Regum 7 Kupfertafeln - 2. Numismata Graeca Syriae Aegyptii et Arsacidarum 9+3+4 Kupfertafeln. - 3. Numismata Graeca Sicilia Ilidae Minorum Gentium 5+3+4 Kupfertafel. - 4. Numismata Antiqua Populorum et Urbium (2 Titelblätter) 85 Kupfertafeln. - 5. Numismata Antiqua Imperatorum Romanorum Latina et Graeca. 183 Kupfertafeln. - 6. Numismata Antiqua Familiarum Romanarum (2 Titelblätter) 34 Kupfertafeln. - Die Tafeln sind innerhalb der einzelnen Abteilungen fortlaufend numeriert und in sich komplett. - Außerordentlich seltenes Werk, ein Pionierwerk zur antiken Münzkunde des Schweizer Professors, Archäologen und Numismatikers J.J. Geßner (1707-1787). - Günther Thüry schrieb ca. 1984 eine Abhandlung in der Schweizer Münzblättern über Geßner und dieses Werk, er nennt Gessner einen Pionier der antiken Numismatik. "Die Publikation dieses Gessnerschen Corpus, dieses "Thesaurus numismatum", der 1734 erstmals zur Subskription gestellt wurde, erfolgte in unregelmässig erscheinenden Teillieferungen und zog sich über rund vier Jahrzehnte hin" "Das Gessnersche Corpus besteht aus zahlreichen, meist ohne Angabe des Erscheinungsjahres veröffentlichten Teillieferungen In der bisherigen bibliographischen und numismatischen Literatur herrscht so über Erscheinungsdaten, Zahl, Umfang und Titel der einzelnen Werkteile manche Unklarheit". - Thüry meint, dass das gesamte Werk insgesamt 254 Textseiten und 347 Kupferstichtafeln umfasst, auf denen mehr als 15000 Münzen abgebildet sind. Der Textteil ist hier komplett und ebenso das Grundwerk in 6 Tafellieferungen, es fehlt wohl lediglich ein später noch erschienenes kleines Supplement. - Die meisten Bibliotheken haben nur einzelne Abteilungen, nur ganz wenige Bibliotheken besitzen ein nahezu oder ganz komplettes Exemplar mit allen Lieferungen. Entsprechend ist das Werk auf dem Antiquariatsmarkt außerordentlich selten, auf den Buchauktionen der letzten ca. 20 Jahre konnte ich lediglich ein einziges (Teil)-Exemplar finden und zwar die 34 Kupfertafeln der Abteilung Numismata Antiqua Familiarum Romanarum nebst Titelblatt. Dieser Teilband wurde 2016 für ca. 2000 Dollar versteigert bei Kolbe & Funning auction 141 (USA). - Schönes Exemplar in sauberer Gesamterhaltung.

        The Physician's Pulse-Watch; or, an Essay To Explain the Old Art of Feeling the Pulse, and to Improve it by the help of a Pulse-Watch. In Three Parts... An Extract out of Andrew Cleyer, concerning the Chinese Art of Feeling the Pulse. (Vol. 2:) The Pulse Watch: Vol. II. Or, An Essay To Discover The Causes of Diseases, and a rational Method of curing them by Feeling of the Pulse...

      London, 1707-10. 8vo. Two contemporary uniform full calf bindings with five raised bands to spine, single gilt line-borders to boards and a blindstamped double "wave"-border at hinges. Gilt tome-numbers to spines and a very small old paper label to lower spines. All edges of boards blindstamped. Exceptionally nice and fresh. Also internally very nice, clean and crisp, with only very minimal brownspotting. With the engraved armorial book plate of William Constable Esq. to inside of front boards, and with a tiny stamp of Selbourne Library to verso of title-pages. A superb copy. (26), 440; (8), XXVIII, 468 pp. Fully complete, also with the advertisement-leaf. The seminal first edition - extremely rarely found with both volumes in contemporary, uniform bindings - of Floyer's magnum opus, in which he introduces the invention of the pulse-watch - the first instrument to accurately count the pulse and with which to make regular observations on the pulse-rate, constituting a giant step forward in the art of diagnosis. Apart from being the first to accurately measure the pulse and the attempt to establish relationships between the pulse rate and conditions of health and disease, Floyer's "Pulse-watch" also constitutes the invention of the second hand on a watch, a feature which has been on all normal watches ever since the appearance of this foundational work. Furthermore, with the present work, "Floyer may justifiably be credited with the invention of the first efficient instrument of precision to merit application in clinical practise. In his major work he gives an account of the use of the pulse watch for measurement of the pulse rates in his patients. The instrument was commercially available in 1707: the advertisement leaf inserted after "The Contents" in vol. I. records that "the pulse-watch... is made and sold by Mr. Samuel Watson, watch-maker in Long Acre, by Sir John Floyer's direction." Samuel Watson was mathematician-in-ordinary to King Charles II and one of the great clock-makers of his day." (Hagelin, p. 112).Floyer (1649-1734), an eminent and original English physician, one of the most eccentric of his time, was very interested in the Chinese art of medicine. Interestingly, it is in this technical magnum opus that his sensory and sinological interests coincide, causing quite a stir. Floyer may have been inspired by Andreas Cleyer's "Specimen Medicinae Sinicae" (1682), which introduced to the Western world the Chinese art of studying the pulse - it is this work, which Floyer gives an abridged version of in English in the third appendix to vol. one of the present work, spreading these ideas in the English speaking countries. In the preface to the present work, Floyer expresses the unifying conviction underlying the investigations that led him to his groundbreaking invention: "our Senses can sufficiently inform us of all the most useful Phenomena whereby we know or cure our Diseases, or prognosticate concerning them." Thus, in the present work, Floyer actually set out to prove the compatability between the Galenic and Chinese methods of feeling the pulse, ultimately resulting in one of the most important inventions in the history of clinical practice. "Floyer was the first to make regular observations upon the rate of the pulse and his work was a great step forward in the art of diagnosis by absolutely fundamental means." (Hagelin, p. 112). "Before watches had hands to record 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." (G&M).Garrison & Morton: 2670Hagelin: p. 112-13Osler: 2618 (lacking vol.

        Description de la Chambre de raretez de la ville d'Utrecht sur le Nouveau Canal dans l'Amonotie-huys, proche de l'Ecole Latine. Consistant dans des antiquitez de la religion des anciens Romains [...]. Première partie.

      A Utrecht, chez Nicolas Chevalier, 1707.In-folio de16-[6] pages suivies des planches, cartonnage café au lait moderne, étiquette de titre tabac au dos. Quelques rousseurs. Illustré d'un large bandeau (rehaussé de lavis) et 61 planches: 36 planches hors-texte présentant 227 figures, le deux premières assemblées sur la même page (elle représentent toutes deux la face antérieure du Cabinet), la troisième portant la mention "Gravé par le fameux Romain de Hooge", la cinquième étant coupée avec petit manque. S'ensuivent 25 autres planches présentant 300 médailles. Très rare première édition de cette description de la collection de Nicolas Chevalier, qui venait alors de déménager d'Amsterdam à Utrecht. Son cabinet de curiosités avait été officiellement accueilli par la ville d'Utrecht, et installée au dessus de la Bourse en 1707. Une première publication plus modeste (8 planches seulement) avait parue en 1694 à Amsterdam (réditée en 1702) concernant sa collection. A la disparition de son épouse, Chevalier retrournera à Amsterdam et publiera un autre ouvrage sur son cabinet. Selon le Journal des sçavans (Rey, 1709, volume44, pour l'édition de 1709), notre exemplaire est non seulement complet mais il comprend les deux parties, la seconde étant constituée de la suite des médailles. Un vai cabinet de curiosités, avec des bouts de momies, des animaux étranges, en bocaux, quelques objets phalliques (omis dans le descriptif!) et bien sûr un crocodile!

        Les délices de la Grande Bretagne et de l'Irlande où sont exactement décrites les antiquitez, les provinces, les villes.

      Leiden: Pierre van der Aa 1707 - Leiden: Pierre van der Aa., 1707. 8 volumes bound in 4, 8vo, engraved titles, 241 engraved copper-plate, double-page plates and maps, after Loggan, Kip, Slezer and others, title-pages in red and black, contemporary red morocco, spine with raised bands, gilt, gilt edges. Although the name Beeverell is a fabrication, the 'Delights of Great Britain and Ireland' has continuing value because of the fine engraved plates by Jan Goeree (1670-1731) and the 'on the spot' information it provides about the inhabitants, their customs, speech, and religion. This first edition was printed by the Leiden mapmaker and publisher Pieter van der Aa, who specialized in topography, travel and natural history. Note the Irish harp in the corner.

        Arithmetica Universalis: sive De Compositione et Resolutione Arithmetica Liber. Cui accessit Halleiana Aequationum Radices Arithmetice inveniendi methodus. In Usum Juventutis Academicae

      4 p.l., 343 pp. 8vo, fine antique panelled calf (faint & unimportant dampstaining in gutter to first & final few leaves), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Cambridge: Typis Academicis; London: B. Tooke, 1707. First edition of what I believe to be the scarcest of all of Newton's books on the market. This was, in the 18th century, the most popular mathematical work by Newton, being reprinted a number of times both on the Continent and in England. Newton compiled the Universal Arithmetic in a "cavalier fashion by plundering the papers connected with his Observations on Kinckhuysen early in the 1670s. Since things Newton touched had a way of turning to gold, the work did not merely summarize algebra but advanced the science - in its analysis of imaginary roots, for example. Leibniz reviewed the published work anonymously in the Acta eruditorum in highly laudatory terms [in 1708]."-Westfall, Never at Rest. A Biography of Isaac Newton, p. 398. Newton's disciple and successor in the Lucasian chair at Cambridge, William Whiston, edited and published the present work. The book also contains Halley's "Method of finding Roots of Equations Arithmetically," which was originally published in the Philosophical Transactions of 1694. This is the first time I have handled this book. Over the years, I have had, with the exception of this book, all of Newton's printed publications. This book is truly uncommon. Very good copy. Stamp on title of Stonyhurst College. ? Babson 199.
