        Optica oculorum vitia : sub praesidio Georgii Alberti Hambergeri, ... in Academia Jenensi, doctorum oculis ad diem ... Octobr. MDCIVC sujiciet Adamus Behmannus Bernhardi, ...

      . Jena : Literis Gollnerianis, 1707, Kl.-4°, (2), 64 pp., mit 1 Kupfertafel, feiner Pappband im Stil d. Zeit.. Rare - Second Edition of the first monograph on refractive errors ! - - "Physiology in general and physiologic optics in specific made great progress during the 18th century. These advances were at first made not by practicing ophthalmologists but the mathematicians and physicists. This situation is, therefore , similar to that of the 17th century when progress was achieved by Kepler, Scheiner, Kircher, Mariotte, Hooke, Rohault, Deschales, Huygens and others. - - The mathematician Georg Albrecht Hamberger (1662-1716) was the author of a most curios monograph which was printed toward of the end of the 17th century. Modern historian did not know about it and it is not mentioned by A. Hirsch, not by Helmholtz in the second edition of his Physiological Optik. It is difficult to determine how much this book influenced the thought progress of the 18th century. It is only mentioned in the review of the literature by Julius Beer in his first 'Augenheilkunde' of 1792 and Haller quotes it in his 'Elementa physiologiae humani' ...." - - The book is called: Optica oculorum vitia sub praesidio Geogrii Alberti Hambergeri, .... - - This is the first monograph on refractive errors, - the root so to speak from which 170 years later the classical book by Donders evolved; the monograph is for its time extraordinarily clear, strictly mathematical and physical, written in an entirely different spirit from the scholastic descriptions of the fourth book by Plempius "Opthalmographia" (1632) and also far superior to the corresponding remarks in Boerhaave's lectures on ophtahlmology (1708, printed in 1746 to 1771). These two publications are usually regarded as the beginning of physiologic optics. .... - - (Also) Modern ocular hygiene was created by Professor Hamberger in Jena in 1696 ... - - Only the reform of ophthalmology during the middle of the 19th century which was based on the ophthalmoscope and the correct recognition of refraction changed the situation." Hirschberg/Blodi IV, pp.284-291 - - "Es ist dies die erste Sonderschrift über die Fehler der Einstellung des Auges ... für die damalige Zeit außerordentlich klar, streng mathematisch-physikalisch ... geschrieben ... Die Hygiene des Auges ... ist in den zahllosen Schriften über diesen Gegenstand, die um die Wende des 18. zum 19. Jahrhundert ... erschienen sind, nur wenig verbessert und erweitert worden " Hirschberg

      Te Leyden By Pieter Vandera Aa. 1707 - FIRST EDITION. Slender 8vo, pp. 37 [38 - 42 Index], folding engraved map, 2 folding engraved plates, engraved vignette on title-page, recently rebound in half calf, spine blocked in gilt, marbled boards. A very good copy. The English civil servant William Method (1590 - 1653) was born in Norfolk; he acquired fluency in several foreign languages, including Latin, Dutch, French, and Persian. He began service for the East India Company in 1616, and this account of his experiences there was one of several reports he made to his employers. ODNB notes, "Apart from forthright letters and reports to the company, partly published, he composed a 'Relation of Golconda', a brilliant description of that part of India, which appeared in the 1626 edition of Samuel Purchas's Purchas his Pilgrimage. It included brief descriptions of the kingdoms of Arakan, Pegu, and Tenasserim, based on trade information, not personal observation." This would appear to be the first translation into Dutch of the material published in 1625. Cordier Indosinica, 415. OCLC locates several copies in continental libraries, and UC Berkeley, Johns Hopkins, and the John Carter Brown Library in the USA; Copac adds BL. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Histoire de la Virginie

      Chez Thomas Lombrail, Amsterdam 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. OCLC no. 5828565. 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. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Litotomia ovvero del cavar la pietra.

      . Florence, Guiseppe Manni, 1707, Folio, 24, 110, (2) pp., Titelvignette und 16 ganzseitige Kupferstich-Tafeln in einem Halblederband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung. Ein breitrandiges und unbeschnittenes Exemplar.. *Rare First Edition of an early but authoritative book on Lithotomy, the surgery to remove the stone. It is excellently illustrated, the plates showing the actual operations as well as the urological instruments. Tommaso Alghisi (1669-1730) was an Italian surgeon, famous in his time for successfull cures of the stone and in this mayor work he was probably the first to use an indwelling urethral catheter to drain urine away from the wound. The inclined position of the patient which head raised during the operation , illustrated in plate XVI, was widely used on his authority. - **Sehr seltene Erstausgabe eines der besten, frühen Werke zur Lithotomie, exzellent gedruckt, mit schönen instruktiven Tafeln. Thomasso Alghisi (1669-1730) aus Florenz war der Sohn eines bekannten Professors der Chirurgie. Ausgebildet unter seinem Vater am Hospital di Santa Maria Nuova, betrieb er anatomische Studien unter dem berühmten Lorenzo Bellini und widmete sich vorzugsweise dem Steinschnitt. Die Behandlung des Papstes Clemens XI trug zur Erhöhung seines Rufes bei.

      - Florence, Guiseppe Manni, 1707, Folio, 24, 110, (2) pp., Titelvignette und 16 ganzseitige Kupferstich-Tafeln in einem Halblederband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung. Ein breitrandiges und unbeschnittenes Exemplar. *Rare First Edition of an early but authoritative book on Lithotomy, the surgery to remove the stone. It is excellently illustrated, the plates showing the actual operations as well as the urological instruments. Tommaso Alghisi (1669-1730) was an Italian surgeon, famous in his time for successfull cures of the stone and in this mayor work he was probably the first to use an indwelling urethral catheter to drain urine away from the wound. The inclined position of the patient which head raised during the operation , illustrated in plate XVI, was widely used on his authority. - **Sehr seltene Erstausgabe eines der besten, frühen Werke zur Lithotomie, exzellent gedruckt, mit schönen instruktiven Tafeln.

Ausgebildet unter seinem Vater am Hospital di Santa Maria Nuova, betrieb er anatomische Studien unter dem berühmten Lorenzo Bellini und widmete sich vorzugsweise dem Steinschnitt. Die Behandlung des Papstes Clemens XI trug zur Erhöhung seines Rufes bei.

Funnell arrived in England before Dampier and seized the opportunity to compose a relation of his voyage; a task for which he was poorly qualified.

It was first published at Cambridge in 1647 and first printed by a Redmayne in 1663. This is a rather charming copy, whose first owner, William Powell, seems to have been an assiduous student with a fondness for writing his name in Greek characters. The book was cherished in the Powell family, if the engraved armorial bookplate of W.T.R. Powell (1815-1878), M.P. for Cardiganshire, is anything to go by. Westminster, Christ Church and Parliament was the traditional family route. (ESTC T129127)

        The Spanish Libertines:

      London - Samuel Bunchley, 1707 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Full calf leather binding with gilt lettering to spine. The first edition of this scarce and importantwork. Contains 3 Spanish stories and a play translated into English by John Stevens. The Spanish works are attribued to Francesco Lopez de Ubeda and Andres Perez de Leon, Fernanso Rojas, Gonzales and Juan de Avila. John Stevens (c. 16621726), was a translator and antiquary. He settled in London in 1695 to make a living as a professional writer, putting his command of Spanish and Portuguese to practical, though not lucrative, use. Over the next thirty years he published over twenty translations, mainly from the Spanish, in addition to histories of Spain and Portugal and a painstakingly researched Spanish dictionary. He satisfied the contemporary taste for books of travel by making available some of the classics of the conquista: accounts written from an Iberian, rather than an English point of view. Though self-deprecating about his literary style, he produced a lively and successful translation of Quevedo's comic satires. He preferred fact to fiction, and required a tale to carry a moral. The austere and devout Quevedo, champion of absolute monarchy, was his favourite writer, and in 1709 he recruited him to the tory cause by translating two of his political works in defence of Dr Henry Sacheverell. Condition: The binding is firm and the rear board is attached, though by the cords only. The front board is detached but present, and the rear inner hinge is strained. There is some wear to the extremities, particularly to the spine which is chipped, and to the front board which is damaged with loss of leather. The corners are bumped and the boards are also rubbed in places. Internally the book is bright apart from some occasional spotting and handling marks. There are also some water marks affecting thebeginning of the book in particular. There is an ownership plate to the front paste down..

Autopsies of the deceased showed that their deaths were often due to hypertrophy and dilatation of the heart, and to various kinds of valve defects. Lancisi also gave the first description of valvular vegetations, and included in his book a historical survey of the literature and a classification of the cardiac diseases then recognized. Leibowitz suggests that Lancisi&#39;s work "must be the first epidemological study of a non-communicable condition" (History of coronary heart disease, pp. 74-75).</p> There are three states of the title-page: one with a woodcut skull-and-crossbone vignette, one with woodcut arms of Pope Clement xi measuring 65 x 60 mm., and one with a larger engraved version of the Pope&#39;s arms measuring 95 x 120 mm. The engraved version of the arms, because it is larger and more elaborate than either of the woodcut title decorations, may have followed the others, but the chronology of states may never be ascertained.

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

      Paris: Cl. Rigaud, 1707. Two volumes, large folio; double-column text and translation printed in Greek and Roman letter; four full-page engravings and two woodcuts in the text illustrating the Cosmas section; some light browning of text but in sound condition in a modern library binding of quarter calf lettered in gilt, speckled paper sides, red edges. 6th century: the earliest Christian maps. A rare and important travel book, not much noticed in the literature. The account of his sixth century travels by Cosmas Indicopleustes appears here in print for the first time, accompanied by what have been described as - in all probability - the earliest Christian maps. The great palaeographer Montfaucon&#39;s eighteenth-century collection of Greek patristic (early Christian) writings prints for the first time newly discovered works by Athanasius and Eusebius of Caesarea, but is of most interest now for publishing for the first time the {i Topographia Christiana} of the sixth-century traveller Cosmas - known as Indicopleustes, or the Indian Voyager - from the tenth-century manuscript in the Vatican, illustrated with four full-page engravings and several woodcuts in the text. A merchant from Alexandria, around the year 530 Cosmas sailed in the Red Sea and visited Ethiopia. &#39;He definitely visited Adulis (= Zula), where he found an inscribed marble seat, and described the Persian Gulf, Socotra, India and Ceylon, although there is no proof that he travelled that far. In fact he is quite honest about the places he visited and it can be assumed unlikely that he sailed far beyond the coasts of the Red Sea and South Arabia. His description of Ethiopia documents some of the large expeditions sent by the Kings of Aksum to the coast of Sasu, thought to be southern Somalia. &#39;In about 548 Cosmas became a monk and retired to Sinai where he wrote his Topographia Christiana. It is for this, probably the first work of Christian geography and containing the first Christian maps, that he is best known. He regarded the Earth as a rectangular plane covered by the vaulted roof of the firmament, with heaven above. He recognized Ceylon as an entrepot in the trade between India and the Far East, and was aware that to reach China (he calls it &#39;Tzinitza&#39;) one had to sail east then turn north…&#39; (Howgego, I, C200). Cosmas was a flat-earther, who scoffed at the idea of an antipodes on the basis that people there would have to hang on upside down: the illustration reproduced by Montfaucon from the early mansucript that he examined shows how absurd Cosmas found the idea of a globe with antipodeans thus disadvantaged. The chief object of his "Topography" was &#39;to denounce the false and heathen doctrine of the rotundity of the earth, and to vindicate the scriptural account of the world. According to Cosmas our terrestrial home is a tabernacle or tent: the earth is a rectangular plane, covered by the vaulted roof of the firmament, above which lies heaven. In the centre of the plane is the inhabited earth, surrounded by ocean, beyond which lies the paradise of Adam. The sun revolves round a conical mountain to the north - round the summit in summer, round the base in winter, which accounts for the difference in the length of the day. &#39;The best known and most celebrated part of the "Topography" is the description, in the ninth book, of Ceylon and of the plants and animals of India… The work also contains in all probability the oldest Christian maps, either made by Cosmas himself or prepared under his direction… He attacked the theory that the earth was a sphere, both on the grounds of its pagan origin and common sense, and he was particularly anxious to discredit the existence of the Antipodes. How can rain fall up in the southern hemisphere? How could people hang upside down by their toes? Beazley notes that &#39;he carried the popular tradition to the furthest extreme. His vituperation against Greek science is a sign of its continuing vitality in Alexandria on the eve of the Arab invasion…&#39; (Evelyn Edson, {i Mapping Time and Space: How Medieval Mapmakers Viewed Their World}, The British Library, 1997, pp. 145-148). There are evidently two issues of the book, dated 1706 or 1707 but otherwise without difference. A very substantial article on Cosmas and the significance of his mapping can be found at http://www.henry-davis.com/MAPS/EMwebpages/202mono.html.

Dei vari volumi della raccolta sul Teatro della Guerra, l' Ungheria è quello che comprende il testo descrittivo più esteso... con una dettagliata illustrazione storico - geografica dell' Ungheria e dei suoi 56 comitati o distretti e un elenco alfabetico dei suoi fiumi (Armao). Apponyi, Hungarica, IV, 2358, descrive ampiamente quest' opera e non cita la tavola di Venezia, che non deve esistere. Il presente esemplare è quindi il solo completo conosciuto. Sul P.

        Projet d'une dixme royale .

      N. p.: 1707. - xii, 268 pp; 4 folding tables. Contemporary leather. Very Good. Second edition. The first edition, published in January, 1707, was suppressed by order of parliament. 'Vauban's Projet d'une dixme royale ('Project for a Royal Tythe, or General Tax') caused a stir in 1707. It did not appear under his own name, for Vauban was well aware of the controversy it would bring. In it, he asserted that France's complicated tax code should be abandoned and a flat tax of ten percent on property and trade be put in place. More significantly, in this book Vauban supported his arguments with a wealth of statistical data he had collected, and thus laid the foundation for the use of statistics to corroborate and forecast economic aims. Louis XIV censored its publication, however, and this devastated Vauban, though it appears they remained friends' (answers[dot]com/topic/vauban). 'This is one of the outstanding performances in the field of public finance, unsurpassed, before or after, in the neatness and cogency of the argument. . Vauban rose fully to those heights, trodden by so few, from which fiscal policy is seen to be a tool of economic therapeutics, the ultimate result of a comprehensive survey of the economic process. With Gladstonian vision he realized that fiscal measures affect the economic organism right to its cells and that the method of raising a given amount of revenue may make all the difference between paralysis and prosperity. Second, he based his conclusions in every detail on numerical fact. His engineer's mind did not guess. It figured out. 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' (Joseph A. Schumpeter, History of Economic Analysis, pp. 197-8).

        PERI BIOU PYTHAGORIKOU LOGOS. DE VITA PYTHAGORICA LIBER, GRAECE & LATINE.

      Imp. Vda. Sebastian Petzold & Christian Petzold. Amsterdam, 1707 - . 21 cm. [16], 67-93 pág., 3 h. de índices. Texto enfrentado griego-latín, a dos columnas. Portada a dos tintas. Ilustr. con un retrato calcográfico de Pitágoras por Fulvium Ursinum, a plena página. Enc. en pergamino, cortes jaspeados. * Tras la obra propiamente dicha, y con paginación propia (aunque la colación es continua), contiene Notae Conradi Rittershusii. in Malchum, sive Porphyrium, De vita Pythagorae publicada por vez primera por Cunradum Agricolam en 1610. Jámblico de Calcis (c. 250-330) fue el máximo representante del neoplatonismo asirio y quien marcó la dirección que tomaría la filosofía neoplatónica de entonces en adelante. A pesar de haber generado abundante obra propia, es sobre todo conocido por la que ofrecemos, un compendio sobre la filosofía pitagórica. Estudió inicialmente con Anatolio de Laodicea y, más adelante, con Porfirio, que había sido discípulo de Plotino. Aproximadamente en el año 304 regresó a Siria y formó su propia escuela cerca de Antioquía, en la que enseñaba las teorías de Platón y Aristóteles. Sin embargo, para él la máxima autoridad era Pitágoras. Sus obras se conservan de forma parcial, y sólo a través de estos fragmentos y del trabajo que ofrecemos podemos conocer su sistema de pensamiento. En cuanto a las teorías neoplatónicas, Jámblico es el responsable de la introducción del concepto de la encarnación del alma en la materia (cuya divinidad habría que situar al mismo nivel que el del resto del cosmos). Este es, según los expertos, el punto de partida fundamental a medio camino entre sus propias ideas y las de sus predecesores, que tenían a la materia por un concepto deficiente. Aclamado por sus seguidores, algunos llegaron incluso a creer que el filósofo poseía facultades milagrosas. Este fue uno de los motivos por los que su nombre se asoció, durante los siglos XV y XVI, al calificativo de "divino". Además del autor, participaron en esta edición el filólogo, paleográfo y editor de textos griegos antiguos Ludolph Küster (1670-1716), el humanista, geógrafo e historiador alemán Lukas Holste (1596-1661), Ulrich Obrecht y Konrad Ritterhausen, que es el responsable de los comentarios a la obra contenidos en la segunda parte. neoplatonismo, pitágoras, filosofía griega Filosofia Libros antiguos anteriores a 1830 latín [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MAASE RAV Maaseh Rav Maase Rav

      (Thomas Ilive?), London 1707 - 14 leaves. Maaseh rav is a refutation of Rabbi Uri Faibesh's responsum, Urim v¿etumim, on a bill of divorce and includes responsa from various rabbis; Teshuvot ha-geonim discusses the pronunciation of God's name. This booklet was published after a quarrel within the Ashken. congregation in London in 1704 which had caused a rift in the congregation and the creation of a second Ashken. congregation. Maaseh Rav was composed to justify the secession and as a refutation of the booklets Urim Wetumim, London, 1706 which was written by the official rabbi Uri Phoebus b. Herz Hamburger before he left London in the same year.A Rabbinic controversy surrounding a divorce granted by Chief Rabbi Aaron Hart to one Ansel Katz of London prior to his sailing for the Caribbean. This decision was publicly criticized by Mordechai Hamburger who was promptly placed under the communal ban of ¿herem.¿ Additionally, Hart set out the matter in the pamphlet ¿Urim Vetumim¿ (London 1707). To defend his position, Hamburger had a member of his household (Hamburger was the wealthy son-in-law of the diarist Gluekl of Hameln) prepare his defense in the present publication. The historical background to the affair is presented by David Kaufmann in JHSET, v. 3, pages 102-125. The bibliographic confusion relating to the work is clarified by Nathan Isaacs in Journal of Jewish Bibliography (1939) pages 83-85. Both scholars attest to the unusually rarity of the Ma¿aseh Rav. . [Vinograd, Amsterdam (sic) 833; Roth, London 3]. The place of publication is according to Bibliotheca Anglo-Judaica, page 269, number 3 and Kiryat Sefer, year 14, 1937-1938, page 99. Vinograd lists it as published in Amsterdam. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
