Contemporary owner's inscription to front pastedown, faded 18th century library stamp to front free endpaper, which has a four-inch vertical tear. Contemporary paneled calf, spine gilt, leather label, expertly rebacked with original spine laid down. First edition of this important contemporary account of an early circumnavigation of the globe. "It was Funnell, not Dampier, who really circumnavigated the globe on this voyage, as Dampier proceeded only as far as the South Seas. The purpose of the expedition was to harass the Spaniards and take plunder from vessels and towns in South America. Its failure was due to the differences that arose between them. 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. His narrative contained much that was disapproved of by Dampier, who immediately after published a "Vindication" of his voyage, pointing out the misrepresentations of Funnell" (Hill).

Norman copy, with bookplate.</p><p>First Edition, possible third state of the title, with the engraved arms of Pope Clement XI, Lancisi, physician to Pope Clement xi, undertook this study of sudden deaths under papal directive after an unusually large number of such deaths had occurred in Rome the previous year. 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'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's arms measuring 95 x 120 mm.

[COSMAS INDICOPLEUSTES] MONTFAUCON, Bernard de, editor
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'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. '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 c … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 me … [Click Below for Full Description]

Yohanan ben Yitzhak of Helliscau Yohanan, me-Helishoi Mehalishoi Yochanan b. Isaac of Hoelleschau
(Thomas Ilive?), London, 1707. 14 leaves. Maaseh rav is a refutation of Rabbi Uri Faibesh's responsum, Urim vetumim, 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. .

EULER, Leonhard.
First edition, and a really remarkable copy in original state (the Norman copy), of Euler's great textbook on analysis. This is the only work of Euler listed in <i>Printing and the Mind of Man</i>. "In his 'Introduction to Analysis' Euler did for modern analysis what Euclid had done for ancient geometry" (PMM). The editors of Euler's collected works emphasize that the <i>Introductio</i> work "still today deserves to be not only read, but studied with devotion. No mathematician will put it aside without immense benefit," and that the <i>Introductio</i> "marks the beginning of a new epoch and that this work has become influential for the whole development of the mathematical science by virtue of not only its content, but also its language." Extremely rare in this condition. <br/><br/> PMM 196; Norman 732 (this copy); Landmark Writing in Western Mathematics 13.<br/><br/> "Leonhard Euler (1707-83), the great Swiss mathematician, was born at Basel where he became the pupil of Johann Bernoulli, whose sons persuaded Catherine the Great to invite him to St. Petersburg. In 1747 he was invited by Frederick the Great to Berlin. In 1766 he became blind, but this did not interfere with his colossal output of work. Altogether he produced thirty-two books in Latin, German and French, and approximately nine hundred memoirs (making him the most productive mathematician who ever lived). He covered practically the entire field of pure and applied mathematics, but some of his best and most enduring work was done in analysis, which he established as an independent science. <br/><br/> "In his 'I … [Click Below for Full Description]

NEWTON, Sir Isaac.
First edition in English, the second overall after the first (Latin) edition (1707), 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 <i>i</i>th powers of the roots of any polynomial equation, for any integer <i>i</i>, 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" (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 tract by Halley on 'A new, accurate and easy method for finding the roots of any equations generally, without prior reduction' (pp. 259-272) had also been appended to the first Latin edition.<br/><br/> "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 (<i>Papers</i> V, p. 5) believes that they were composed ' … [Click Below for Full Description]

[BUFFON, Georges Louis Leclerc and] Bernard Germain Étienne de la Ville-sur-Illon, comte de LACÉPÈDE.
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.

(GRAMMONT, FRANÇOIS-JOSEPH).
. 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...".
