Each volume with the same woodcut vase of flowers, 2 engraved headpieces, 63 full-page engraved plates, some tables in text. 19th-century uniform half calf, shell marbled sides, gold-tooled spines.

      Landwehr, Coloured plates 45; Nissen, ZBI 678; Schuh's Biobliography of mineralogy (online ed.), Buffon no. 4 (http://www.minrec.org/libdetail.asp?id=233). 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.

        Statuta Seu Decreta Synodalia Bisuntinae Dioecesis Publicata ab Anno 1480 Ad Annum 1707

      1707. Vesantione [i.e. Besançon], 1707. Titlepage, 14,(viii),441,(xliii)pp. 16mo. Contemporary full calf, spine goldtooled. Corners rubbed. First flyleaf loosening, browned throughout and (water)stain on last flyleaf. François-Joseph de Grammont was Archbishop of Besançon from 1698 to 1717. The present work contains the statutes of the diocesan synod convoced by him in his capacity as Archbishop. At a synod the decrees determined upon by the (arch)bishop are promulgated and a period of two months is allowed for having recourse against them to the bishop or the Holy See. All the clergy and laity of the diocese are bound by these decrees, and it is not necessary for the bishop to send his statutes to Rome for revision before publication. Pages 336 to 348 specifically deal with books and in the "mandemant" in the introductory material the archbishop explains why he forbids certain books in his diocese. He states: "Nous avons apris avec douleur que des Villes heretiques qui nous sont voisines, se répandoit dans cette Province le pernicieux Dictionnaire de Bayle.... Nous défendons sous les peines de Droit à tous les Fidéles de ce Diocese de lire ou retenir, & à tous Imprimeurs et Libraires de vendre & débiter aucuns desdits Livres..."

        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, a little wear to hinges which are strong; spine decorated in gilt between raised bands, leather label, covers ornately gilt with complex central emblematic device. The best edition of the text. 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 Voyage Round the World. Containing an Account of Captain Dampier's Expedition into the South-Seas in the ship St. George, In the Years 1703 and 1704

      London: James Knapton, 1707. Octavo, five folding maps & 10 plates; mild browning of the title-page and dedication, edges a little spotted; very good in neat later polished calf with gilt bands and red morocco label, joints rubbed, bookplate. Funnell on Dampier. A nice copy of the work which almost ruined Dampier's already shaky reputation, Funnell's highly critical account of the 1703-4 South Seas voyage of the St. George. It was during this voyage that Alexander Selkirk, the prototype of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, was marooned on Juan Fernandez. The cruise of the St. George and the Cinque Ports (Captain Stradling) was a South Seas voyage designed to harass the Spanish, but it failed because of conflict on board the vessels, including a falling-out between the mate Funnell and Dampier. When the former returned to England first, he seized the opportunity to rush into print with this highly unflattering account of his former captain. Dampier, in turn, would publish a vindication of his conduct, and would have been infuriated when the publisher Knapton later included this highly critical work in the collected edition of Dampier in 1729. Funnell joined Dampier's third privateering expedition as mate of the St. George which sailed for the Canary Islands, Brazil and the South Seas in April 1703. The St. George was joined by the Cinque Ports and both ships started looting the South American Coast from the Juan Fernandez Islands in January 1704. They experienced mixed success and the crews grew rebellious in the face of dwindling food supplies. Funnell's account is highly critical of Dampier, and charges him with being routinely drunk, using foul and abusive language, oppressing his crew, and gross cowardice. The antagonism between Funnell and Dampier was exacerbated when they took the Spanish galleon Asuncion as a prize. With limited time available, Dampier ordered the food stores moved to the St. George and forbade Funnell to search the Asuncion for hidden gold. Ultimately both the St. George and Cinque Ports were declared unseaworthy and abandoned in late 1704. The expedition split, with Funnell and other disgruntled sailors taking a small Spanish prize to Amboina in the Dutch East Indies.

        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. .

      NELLA STAMPERIA DI ANTONIO DE' ROSSI 1707 In 4°, pp. 48 cc.nn., 284, 20 cc.nn. Di indice. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena; tassello al dorso in marocchino rosso, con titolo e nome dell'autore in oro. Edizione curata della celebre opera di Anneo Lucano, poeta latino intimo amico di Nerone, nei primi anni della sua formazone culturale e successivamente acceso sostenitore della repubblica. Tutta la produzione di questo autore, è andata distrutta, escluso la Farsaglia, che ci è giunta non terinata, in dieci libri. Questo poema, sulla guerra civile tra Cesare e Pompeo, è considerato "Il poema dell'opposizione stoica" contro la monarchia; non a caso la figura più riuscita è quella di Catone, modello di virtù ed espressione tipica di un nuovo gusto anticlassico. Interessante edizione tra le prime in lingua volgare. Bello e fresco esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione. Brunet: V.III, 1203.

        Litotomia ovvero del cavar la pietra...

      FIRST EDITION of one of the finest books on urology, with respect to both printing and illustration, and one of the best early books on lithotomy. Alghisi, a native of Florence, was probably the first to use an indwelling urethral catheter to drain urine away from the wound after lithotomy. The fact that he advocated the inclined position of the patient with his head raised led to its general adoption. See Murphy, The history of urology, p. 100, (illustrating plate XVI). Kiefer catalogue 12.Small folio, pp. 24, CX, (1)licence, and 16 fine engraved plates. Half-title, engraved vignette on title by Cosimo Mogalli, some fine and large woodcut ornaments. Contemporary sheep, ends of spine and corners repaired, no free endpapers. A few small marks but generally an excellent copy.
