        An Erethismi sedatio, morbi curatio? (Praes. Stephano Francisco Geoffroy. Cand. Joanne Claudio-Adriano Helvetius). Thèse de doctorat de médecine

      Parisiis 1708 - Thèse de doctorat de médecine du célèbre philosophe. Exemplaire rarissime, seuls 6 exemplaires sont répertoriés dans le monde en bibliothèque. In-4° broché, 8 pages. Un des premières description de cette affection. Le terme éréthisme désigne l'état d'activité, d'excitation d'un organe, nerveux ou pas, et des tissus musculaires (comme le coeur). L'éréthisme s'accompagne de phénomènes électriques, chimiques et physiques. L'éréthisme cardiaque est l'état d'hyperexcitabilité du coeur à la suite des ordres provenant du système nerveux sympathique. - - - - Jean-Claude-Adrien Helvétius était le fils du précédent. Il est né à Paris le 18 juillet 1685, et est mort à Versailles le 17 juillet 1755. Il eut tant de succès dans sa pratique de la médecine qu'il fut appelé en consultation dans la dernière maladie de Louis XIV. En 1719, il soigna avec succès Louis XV encore enfant, puis devint premier médecin de la reine, conseiller d'Etat, inspecteur général des hôpitaux de Flandre, associé vétéran de l'Académie des sciences, etc. Son principal ouvrage est : Principia physico-medica, in gratiam medicinae tyronum conscripta (Paris, 1752). Claude Adrien Helvétius, fils du précédent, est un philosophe et littérateur français, né à Paris en 1715, et mort le le 26 décembre 1771. Jouissant d'une grande fortune, qui lui permit d'acheter, à vingt-trois ans, une charge de fermier général, il fut, comme d'Holbach, et avec plus d'autorité que lui, un des protecteurs attitrés de la philosophie au XVIIIe siècle. Les 300,000 livres que lui rapportait sa ferme y passaient en majeure partie. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Some Familiar Letters between Mr Locke, and Several of his Friends

      London: printed for A. and J. Churchill,, 1708. Octavo (182 x 108 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, plain spine with raised bands, edges sprinkled red. 19th-century ownership inscription, "Hayman", to front free endpaper verso. A fine copy, the contents bright and clean, with a few tiny marks to boards and the front hinge cracked but firm. First edition, a superb unsophisticated copy of the first authorised collection of any letters by Locke, including the letter in which Molyneux first explains the so-called Molyneux problem. Published four years after Locke's death, the volume is presumed to have been compiled and edited by Locke's cousin and principal heir Peter King. The collection comprises two sets of correspondence: first are the letters between Locke and William Molyneux (1656–1698), the Irish experimental philosopher, which began after Molyneux sent Locke a gift copy of his Dioptrica nova in 1692. Their friendship would last until Molyneux's death six years later, "and Molyneux's criticisms and suggestions were taken into account in the second and later editions of Locke's Essay … The most notable of Molyneux's contributions to Locke's second edition was the so-called Molyneux problem, included as an addition to the chapter on perception. The question posed was whether a blind man who had learned to distinguish by touch between a cube and a sphere would be able, on gaining his sight, to differentiate the objects without touching them. Molyneux thought not and Locke agreed. The problem had profound philosophical implications and became a key topic in British philosophy" (ODNB). Molyneux proposes this problem to Locke in his letter of 2 March 1693, which was first published in this edition (pp. 37–8). Second in the volume are the letters (in Latin) between Locke and Philippus van Limborch (1633–1712), the Dutch theologian.

        A most unusual Household Inventory of the contents of what must have been the principal house in the village of DALSTON.

      A most unusual Household Inventory of the contents of what must have been the principal house in the village of DALSTON. Unpublished manuscript1708 Manuscript Inventory, 11th May 1708, bifolium on a heavy paper stock, approx 54 cm x 37 cm. Signed B. Heigham in the presence of the witnesses Owen Lloyd & Joshua Miles. With red wax seal showing the head of a bewigged gentleman. A signed receipt for the £400 sum. A most unusual Household Inventory of the contents of what must have been the principal house in the village of DALSTON. The contents are sold by one Bedingfield Heigham, merchant, to Thomas White of the Middle Temple, gentleman (who actually owned the property), for £400 ( about £32,000 today). The house contains more than 20 rooms with luxurious furnishings, oil paintings, large quantities of pewter and silver plate, China and Delft ware, tapestry hangings, a garden with 16 Cyprus trees, frames for hot beds, and with Laurel trees in boxes in the forecourt. The kitchen, besides the usual accoutrements, contains a Musket, Blunderbuss and Bandoleers. There are full and half length family portraits, Maps, battle scenes and a portrait of King Charles amongst others. The house has a marble fireplace and steel and iron hearths in other rooms. There are brewing vessels, and fourteen dozen glass bottles. The stables hold two coach geldings, harness etc. Part of the house is let to the Lady Marthagres Hickes. Bedingfield Heigham ( whose father of the same name had died circa 1795/6) was married to Esther White, probably the sister of Thomas White. The contents of the house, which also belonged to the White family, and where the married couple lived, passed to the hands of Heigham on their marriage. It seems that Heigham had sold the contents of the house back to the White family. This is a most unusual and fascinating manuscript, showing the entire contents of a rather fashionable London household. Only rather well to do people would own a "Wenscott Stove Lyned with Tin for drying sweetmts". In "the best Chamber over the little Parler " were "One Damask bed Curtains Vallence Quilt Six Elbow Charles with Damask Covers..." They owned "Eighteen Huckaback Towells", a "Sider Press One Mill for Grinding Malt" and "Twelve pillabars" and "Three Fine pillabars". A full transcript of the Inventory is included, but reading the original document and deciphering the quirky spellings offers much more amusement.

        Analyse demontree ou La Methode de Resoudre les Problemes des Mathematiques, et d'apprendre facilement ces Sciences; Expliquee & Demontree dans le premier Volume, & appliquee, dans le second, . . . Geometrie simple & composee. [2 volumes].

      Paris:: Jacque Quillau, 1708., 1708. 2 volumes. 4to. [6], xxiv, 486, [2]; xxviii, [487]-914, [4] pp. Original gilt-decorated speckled calf, raised bands, maroon calf spine label; joints worn & slight worming to volume I, corners showing. Very good, handsome set. Rare. LOVELY COPY OF ONE OF THE EARLIEST CALCULUS TEXTBOOKS. FIRST EDITION. Reyneau was a priest who served as a professor of philosophy at Toulon and Pezenas, and then as professor of mathematics at the College of Angers. While he made no significant discoveries in the field of mathematics, Reyneau had a talent for explicating new discoveries in mathematics. His most important work, the Analyse demontree, was a popular textbook in the early 18th century, and was the book used by Jean le Rond d'Alembert to learn the fundamentals of the subject. In it Reyneau describes, explains, and demonstrates the main theories found in the works of Leibniz, Newton, Descartes, Bernoulli, and other pioneering mathematicians of the day. "Reynau is important historically as the author of a textbook, written at the request of Malebranche, that was designed to provide instruction in the mathematics developed at the beginning of the eighteenth century. . . . "As late as 1694 all that Malebranche had for Reynau to do was edit Prestet's posthumous Geometrie. But, after abandoning the last shred of Cartesian mathematics, Malebranche chose Reyneau to write the entirely new textbook required by this turnabout (1698). / "Reyneau worked with two other Oratorians, Louis Byzance and Claude Jaquemet, who were better mathematicians than he. Reyneau had some difficulty in assimilating the differential and integral calculus and was very interested in the debates, provoked by Rolle on this subject. Reyneau's editorial efforts were frustrated in various ways, and the textbook was not published until 1708." - Pierre Costabel, DSB XI, p. 392. REFERENCES: Poggendorf, Vol. II, 619. [FULL TITLE: Analyse demontree ou La Methode de Resoudre les Problemes des Mathematiques, et d'apprendre facilement ces Sciences; Expliquee & Demontree dans le premier Volume, & appliquee, dans le second, à decouvrir les proprietes des figures de la Geometrie simple & composee; à resoudre les Problemes de ces sciences & les Problemes des sciences Physico-mathematiques, en employant le calcul ordinaire de l'Algebre, le calcul differentiel & le calcul integral.

        Dissertationum Miscellanearum Pars Prima, [Altera, & Tertia et Ultima]

      1708 - First edition. 3 parts in 1. Folding map of Ceylon, engraved vignette to each title& 6 engraved plates (2 folding), with 3 engravings in the text. 12mo. Nineteenth-century half vellum, gilt, joint repaired. [viii], 232, [22]; [viii], 324, [46], [viii], 250, [30]pp. Utrecht, Broedelet, 1706, 1707 & These three volumes, which appeared over three years, and are dedicated to three different figures, contain 13 separate dissertations on antiquarian and linguistic topics. The first volume is dedicated to Piere Danuiel Huet (1630-1721), a French bishop and savant, the second to Antoine Galland (1646-1715), French Arabist and translator of The 1001 Nights, and the third to Gispert Cuper (1644-1716), Dutch numismatist and scholar. Dissertation XII in volume III (pp. 141-229) is entitled 'De linguis americanis' and discusses (with some details of vocabulary taken from earlier books) the languages of S. America (languages of Brasil, Chile, Peru, Mexico, the Caribbean) and at p.208 the language of Virginia. Firstly a vocabulary list is given taken from Eliot's Indian Grammar published at Cambridge (Mass.) in 1666, to a copy of which extremely rare book, it is clear Reland had access, and secondly, taken from the Eliot Bible of 1663, we find printed chapter I of Genesis (p. 212-214). There is then another Algonquin vocabulary list (taken from Lahontan's Mémoires de l'Amérique septentrionale, The Hague,1703), followed by a short section on the Huron language, and then an account of Icelandic/Eskimo vocabulary. At the end of the volume, after the index, are printed various Slavonic versions of the Lord's Prayer. A Dutch scholar, cartographer and philologist, Adriaan Reland (1676-1718) was chosen to tutor the son of Hans Willem Bentinck, favourite of William of Orange, and later first Earl of Portland. Having refused Bentinck's offer to move to England he became professor of philosophy at the University of Harderwijk in 1699 and in 1701 professor of oriental languages at the University of Utrecht. He remains well-known for his thorough and objective study of Islam and for his history of the Holyland. Sabin, 69242. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Haemisphaerium Stellatum Australe Antiquum/ Haemisphaerium Stellatum Boreale Antiquum

      Valck & Schenk 1708 - A Pair of Celestial Maps, 1708. Cellarius/ Valck & Schenk Celestials. Valck & Schenk Amsterdam 1708 original copper engraved antique maps with original full colour in a dark wooden frame with some gold accents and corner decorations in cream coloured museums quality mount with golden slip. frame 71 x 79 cm, print 43 x 51 cm. A most amazing pair of original coloured celestial maps by Andreas Celarrius (1596-1665) and published by Petrus Schenk and Gerad Valk, from 'Harmonia Macrocosmica seu Atlas Universalis et Novus' (Harmonious Universe or New and Universal Atlas) - the finest celestial atlas ever produced! - , published in Amsterdam, 1708. The photos are not doing the maps any justice: the colours within the hemispheres are very vibrant and fresh, depicting the Zodiacs, whilst the area outside the circle is decorated with putti and windheads, coloured in off-green wash-colour. Each map presents a view of the constellations of the Northern or Southern Sky superimposed over the North or South Pole. According to classical astronomy, championed by Aristotle and Ptolemy, the stars were mounted on a huge, transparent crystal sphere part of a divine system in which all of the stars and planets orbited the Earth. The present images were originally engraved in 1660 by Jan Janssonius, during the greatest era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw the perfection of the art of representing scientific ideas in a graphic form using engravings. It was reprinted by Janssonius in 1661, and again in 1708 by Gerard Valk and Petrus Schenk, who added their names to the plates. Schenk was born in Germany but settled in Amsterdam where he became a pupil of Valck, the engraver. In 1687, he married Valck’s daughter and thereafter, both families were active over a long period of time with a wide range of interests as print sellers, publishers of books, maps, topographical and architectural drawings and globe makers. Their work was finely presented and demonstrates the precision and elegance associated with maps and engravings produced during this period. Andreas Cellarius was born in about 1596 in Neuhausen, a small town near Worms in the Rhine-Hesse region of Germany. From 1625 to 1637 Cellarius worked as a schoolmaster in Amsterdam and The Hague, and in 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he was appointed as headmaster or rector of the Latin School. He published a number of works during his lifetime, but the last and greatest was the Harmonia Macrocosmica. Cellarius resigned from his post as headmaster in early 1665 and died in Hoorn in November of the same year. [ref: 2869 ]

        Antique Print-WORLD MAP-EASTERN HEMISPHERE-Cellarius-Valk-Schenk-1708

      - Antique print, titled: 'Hemispherium Orbis Antiqui, Cumzonis Circulis, Et Sity populorum Diverso' - Decorative example of Andreas Cellarius's map of the Eastern Hemisphere, illustrating with climatic zones ranging from Frigida Borealis to Torrida, with planetary details superimposed. The elaborate border includes fine scrollwork, numerous putti, and additional diagrams showing armillary spheres and climatic zones. Andreas Cellarius was born in 1596 in Neuhausen and educated in Heidelberg. He emigrated to Holland in the early 17th Century and 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he became the rector of the Latin School. Cellarius' best known work is his Harmonia Macrocosmica, first issued in 1660 by Jan Jansson, as a supplement to Jansson's Atlas Novus. The work consists of a series of Celestial Charts begun by Cellarius in 1647 and intended as part of a two volume treatise on cosmography, which was never issued. Cellarius' charts are the most soughtafter of celestial charts, blending the striking imagery of the golden age of Dutch Cartography with contemporary scientific knowledge. The present examples come from the Valk & Schenk edition of Cellarius' atlas, which is unchanged from the 1661 edition. The 1660 and 1661 editions can be distinguished by the inclusion of a plate number in the lower right corner of the 1661 edition. The Valk & Schenk edition can be distinguished by the addition of the printer's name (Valk & Schenk) in the titles of the maps. Engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid paper. Description: From the Schenk / Valk edition of Cellarius's Atlas 'Atlas Coelestis, seu Harmonia Macrocosmica' published 1708.Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Andreas Cellarius'. Christoph Cellarius (1638 - 1707) or Christopher Keller was a German scholar, historian and textbook publisher. Cellarius held academic positions in both Weimar and Halle. Cellarius's most important work was his 1683 publication of 'A Universal History Divided into an Ancient, Medieval, and New Period.' It was in this work that the concept of history as divisible into three distinct periods (Ancient History, Mediaeval History, and Modern History) was introduced. It had great impact on the way future historians would interpret the past. Condition: Good, given age. Some light crinkles. Original folds as issued.

        A supplement to the first part of the Gentleman Instructed, with a word to the ladies. Written for the instruction of the young nobility of both sexes.

      London, printed for E. Read ..... and sold by J. Morphew. 1708. 12mo., (8) + 244pp., contemporary panelled calf, some wear to spine at head and foot, but overall a very good copy indeed. First edition: very scarce (ESTC finds copies at only 12 libraries altogether in B. Isles & N. America). The first edition of The Gentleman Instructed> had been published in 1704 (2nd. 1704. 3rd. 1707). Not in Greenough.[A bibliography of the Theophraston character in English.>] With some brilliantly evocative observations on the proper behaviour of girls and young ladies. Thus: 'For beauty being the chief object of a lady's care, she must help nature with art, and polish the work of the Omnipotent with a French wash; she must fence it against the assaults of heats, the excursions of pimples, and the dangerous inroads of the small pox. She must, in fine, expose her life to save her complexion. And then to mould her shape to the Court Standard, what pains does the mother take on the one side, and what a martyrdom does the child undergo on the other? ...... And now Miss leaves the nursery to pile at the Dancing-School, and to finger the guitar, or the virginals; and when she has master'd a minuet, and an air A-la-mode, when she can practice a brace of grimaces, and wave the fan, Good God! how Mamma titters; she is now fledg'd for the world, and sets out for company. But she must beware of reservedness, and fence against a blush; for these are country vices, symptoms of rusticity, crimes against breeding, and the freedom of the town .....'. [pp. 60-61]. Darrell's 'most popular work was The Gentleman Instructed in the Conduct of a Virtuous and Happy Life>, the second edition of which was published in 1704.
