Lhuyd, Edward
Printed at the Theater for the Author,Oxford, 1707. Title page with engraving of Oxford's Sheldonian Theatre, 2p list of subscribers, dedications, 436 pp and index. Contemporary tooled leather boards, spine rebacked with 5 raised bands and gilt tooling. Interior clean and bright. Edward Lhuyd (1660-1707), born near Oswestry, was a Welsh scholar at Jesus College, Oxford, and Curator of the Ashmolean Museum. From 1695 to 1701 he travelled exhaustively through the Celtic countries; this volume (only v. I was published) is the result. In many ways Lhuyd anticipated the methods of modern comparative linguistics. His book is also a fascinating source of material on late Cornish, still spoken when Lhuyd made his journey, and of course on the other languages studied. An exceptional example of this seminal work

WARD (EDWARD, "NED") [1667-1731]
Printed : And sold by B. Bragge, at the Raven in Pater-Noster-Row, London. London: Printed : And sold by B. Bragge, at the Raven in Pater-Noster-Row, 1707. Quarto. First edition. 28pp. §Troyer p.232 (who notes, "I have been unable to locate a copy"), wrongly listing the publication date as 1706. In prose. Published at the height of Ward's popularity, shortly after his political poem 'Hudibras Redivivus' (1705-1707), this seems to have had a smaller, more specific, print run. An exceedingly rare pamphlet, containing the first known mention of the barbecue in the form in which it has become established. BL and Bodleian locations only. Stab-sewn, remains of one chord present. Browned throughout, more so at prelims. & last leaves. Numerals of leaves B4-C very slightly shaved. Trace of old vertical fold across centre of pamphlet, and several tiny paper holes to title corresponding to this. Residue of old paper repair to fore-edge of title, and small later paper repair to same at verso. Good copy. (**This item will require special carriage arrangements - please ask for details**).

Armorial bookplate of George Kenyon to pasted down front end-paper (bookplate cut at edges). 142, (2, - advertisements) pp. + 60 pp.. Rare first editions of Locke's important commentaries on St. Paul's letter to the Romans and to the Ephesians respectively, two important works closely related to his general philosophical and political outlook, and more specifically connected to his work on tolerance."Before his death, Locke wrote instructions for his cousin and heir Peter King regarding certain unpublished works. The first of these posthumous publications to appear was a set of "paraphrase and notes" on the Epistles of St. Paul, the fruits of Locke's biblical studies during his later years and of his disputes with Edwards and Stillingfleet. The paraphrases of each of the five Epistles were brought out separately between 1705 and 1707, then reissued with a collective title page and an introductory essay in which Locke explained his method of reading and interpreting St. Paul. A paraphrase and notes was frequently reprinted during the eighteenth century and had several imitators."

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.

VAUBAN, Sébastien Le Prestre de (1633-1707)]:
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 marshall … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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.
