La pl.16 est en double, veau fauve, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque), 33 planches de figures géométriques. PREMIERE EDITION de ce traité, où les propriétés des sections coniques sont déduites de leur description sur un plan. Cet ouvrage sera pendant un siècle un classique du genre. Le Marquis de l'Hôpital (1661-1704) était un élève de Jean Bernoulli, qui lui apprit le calcul différentiel. Il mourut d'une attaque d'apoplexie, avant d'avoir publié ce traité. C'est le libraire de l'Académie des sciences, Jean Boudot fils, qui décida d'imprimer le manuscrit, sollicités notamment par de jeunes mathématiciens. Ils souhaitaient que ce livre leur permette d'accéder plus facilement au calcul infinitésimal différentiel, développé par le Marquis de L'Hospital dans "L'Analyse des infiniment petits pour l'intelligence des lignes courbes", publié en 1696. La pièce de titre, sur le dos de la reliure, présente une coquille emprunte d'ironie involontaire : le titre "Sections coniques" a été transformé en "Sections Comique[s]" Exemplaire restauré [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Er studierte seit 1695 an der Universität in Leipzig, wo er die Vorlesungen von Carpzov, Olearius, Günther, Mencke u. A. hörte, und wurde 1698 zum Magister der Philosophie promovirt. Am 3. Juni 1711 trat er sein Amt als Rector des Merseburger Domgymnasiums an, nachdem er vorher eine Berufung an das Rectorat in Thorn abgelehnt hatte. Hier lebte er in eifrigster Hingabe an seinen Beruf und widerstand selbst der Versuchung Professor an der Universität Leipzig zu werden. (Zitat) Versand D: 7,00 EUR Geschichte

London: printed for Dan. Brown [et al. ], 1707. First edition, 8vo, [8] & unpaginated lexicon in double column; contemporary paneled calf, red morocco label on spine, sprinkled edges; imperceptibly rebacked, with original spine laid down; spine a little scuffed, else a very good, sound copy. "The first English dictionary to make any considerable use of woodcuts; the next development in this respect does not appear until 1727, when Bailey in his Universal Etymological English Dictionary, Volume II, illustrates scientific as well as heraldic terms" (Starnes & Noyes, p. 94). Often passed off as a later edition of Blount because of its similar title and design, this dictionary, while owing a debt to Blount, is in fact a new work by an anonymous author who placed an emphasis on science, which Starnes & Noyes call "the most formative and forward-looking feature" of it. In fact, pages [7-8] are proposals for printing Harris' Lexicon Technicum. Alston V, 89. [Attributes: First Edition]

ALGHISI, Tommaso.
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.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wolffgang, And. Matth. (Stecher).
Augsburg. 1707. J.M.Roth - Augsburgisches Friedens - Gedächtnüs Die „ Augsburger Friedensgemälde „ sind jährlich erscheinende Einblattdrucke mit erläuterndem Text, die an den Westfälischen Frieden von 1648 erinnern sollten. Die Initiative dazu ist von der evangelischen Barfüßergemeinde ausgegangen. Zwischen 1651 und 1789 erschienen insgesamt 138 Blätter mit Kupferstichen unter Beteiligung von 55 Künstlern als Zeichner und Kupferstecher; allein für das Jahr 1653 ist kein Kupferstich, sondern nur ein Gebet gedruckt worden. „ Die Reihe ist somit ein Musterbuch der Augsburger Künstler dieser Zeit". Die Druckplatten wurden von der Barfüßer-Pfarrei aufbewahrt; es folgten immer wieder Nachdrucke, die in Sammelbänden mit eigenem Titel und einer Einführung verlegt wurden. Nach der Herausgabe im Jubiläumsjahr 1748 folgten bis 1789 noch 41 Jahrgänge. Sämtliche Jahrgänge wurden 1790 ein letztes Mal mit neuem Titel versehen herausgegeben. Lit.: Seitz, Augsburg. Anhand der großen Auswahl der gezeigten Blätter, an der teils bedeutende Stecher und Zeichner der Augsburger Schule beteiligt waren, lässt sich die Stielentwicklung des Augsburger Kupferstichs vom Hoch- über den Spätbarock bis zum Rokoko ( etwa ab 1740 ) verfolgen; die letzten Stiche zeigen sogar frühklassizischtischen Stil. - In leuchtenden Farben kolorierter Kupferstich. Sprache: Deutsch Kolorierter Kupferstich. 46 x 31cm. mit dem Text.

DU PERRON, Jacques Davy; Jacques-Auguste de Thou; Charles de Saint-Denis, Seigneur de Saint-Evremond; Charles Cotolendi
Small 8vo. London: Printed for Tho. Osborne . . .; and Sam. Butler, 1707. Small 8vo, contemporary full panelled calf, modern antique-style rebacking in matching calf, backstrip with four blind-ruled raised bands, black morocco backstrip label lettered & ruled in gilt. [ii(ad leaf)], [x], 329, [7("An Index...," Errata, & ads)] pp. Covers rubbed; handsomely rebacked in period style; some trivial foxing; an attractive copy. First Edition of these translation from French miscellanies of several eminent 17th-century Frenchmen. Du Perron (1556-1618) was a Cardinal, theologian, and diplomat. De Thou -- known as 'Thouanus' -- (1553-1617) was a statesman and scholar known for his brilliant, highly controversial history of his own times. Saint-Evremond (1610-1703) was a soldier who became a Maréchal de France and an author who lived in exile in London for many years and died there. The final section of the book is 'Arliquiniana', taken from the writings of Charles Cotolendi (died c. 1710) about the witty remarks and anecdotes of Dominique Biancolelli (1640-1688), a celebrated French actor who specialized in the role of Harlequin. A second volume of the present work appeared in 1708, but this volume is complete in itself.

Stahl, Georg Ernst; Brunschwitz, Johannes Georgius
Halae Magdeb., Litteris Christ. Henckelii, 1707, Kl.4°, 40 pp., orig. Broschur. Georg Ernst Stahl (1660-1734), "went even further in his therapeutic criticism. In 1707 he matched Hoffmann's initiatives with a thesis entitled "De impostura opii" (On the Imposture with Opium=, that was publicly defended by his student Johann Georg Brunschwitz. The argument of the thesis was that treatment with opium betrayed both patients and doctors, because it effected only a transient mitigation of symptoms. Even worse, since salutary, physical movements and powers, guided by the soul, were "stupefied" and "dazed" by the drug, harmful matter (materia peccans) was not hindered in enhancing lesions and ultimately destroying the patient's body. If the primary affection of a disease could not be reached by therapeutic means, it was better to hope for help by "nature and time". Evidently, Stahl's animist theory of health and disease played a major role in this almost complete rejection of opiates. Yet Brunschwitz gave also some case histories from his teacher practice to illustrate the negative effects and declared the usual corrections of the drug as "false" (i.e. ineffective). Opium should not be given except in cases where the symptoms "really urged" its use, ran the conclusion."

Un léger manque en tête. Fente au mors supérieur en queue. Une déchirure à la carte de Mantoue. Frottements. Assez bon exemplaire. La guerre d'Italie constitue une excellente narration, fourmillant de détails pittoresques ; elle débute d'une manière fort romanesque avant d'entreprendre de conter les batailles du Piémont, de Milan et de Turin, et les intrigues politiques entre l'Espagne, la France, le Duc de Savoie et les duchés d' Italie. L'ouvrage puise en effet dans deux registres, les mémoires autobiographiques et le genre historique, et on y trouvera des aventures amoureuses, de nombreux voyages et descriptions comme un compte rendu rigoureux des batailles et des armées présentes en Italie.
