CELLARIUS, Andreas (c.1596-1665)
[Amsterdam: G.Valck & P.Schenk, 1708. Copper-engraved celestial map, with full original colour. One of the finest and most highly decorative celestial charts ever produced, from the Valk & Schenk edition of Cellarius. This composition, of great artistic élan, presents a view of the constellations of the Northern Sky from the Harmonia Macrocosmica by Andreas Cellarius, the finest celestial atlas ever produced. According to the Classical astronomy, championed by Aristotle and Ptolemy, the stars were mounted on a huge, transparent, crystal sphere that was part of a geocentric system, in which all of the stars and planets rotated around the Earth. The present image was created during the great era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw the perfection of the art of representing scientific ideas in engraving. It was reprinted by Janssonius in 1661, and again in 1708 by Gerard Valck and Petrus Schenk, who added their names to the plates. 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. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Cel. 3.

[LOCKE, John ]
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 philosop … [Click Below for Full Description]

REYNEAU [Reynaud], Charles-Rene (1656-1728).
Jacque Quillau, 1708., Paris. 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 s … [Click Below for Full Description]

KING, William
The Art of Cookery, in Imitation of Horace's Art of Poetry. With some Letters to Dr. Lister, and Others: Occasion'd Principally by the Title of a Book Publish'd by the Doctor, being the Works of Apicius Coelius, Concerning the Soups and Sauces of the Antients. With an Extract of the Greatest Curiosities Contain'd in that Book. To which is Added, Horace's Art of Poetry, in Latin. By the Author of the Journey to London. Published by London: Bernard Lintott, [1708]., 1708 8vo (192 x 119mm), pp. [8 (half-title, blank, title, blank, 'The Publisher to the Reader')], 160 woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces occasional light browning and spotting, half-title and Title marked contemporary ornamented leather, rebacked a very good copy. First authorised edition. The Art of Cookery, a satire on Horace's De arte poetica, was written by William King (1663-1712), first king's scholar at Westminster School and king's student at Christ Church, Oxford, and then a student of civil law. 'At Oxford he read widely but, as Dr Johnson calculated, could hardly have dispatched in eight years the twenty-two thousand books and manuscripts alleged, from his Adversaria by Joseph Browne' (ODNB). King's writing career was, however, undoubtedly prolific, starting with a co-authored defence of Wycliffe (1688) and moving on to a large number of poems, satires (including one on the Royal Society's secretary, Hans Sloane, in 1700) and polemical letters. His Journey to London(1698, the work which identifies King as the author of The Art of Cookery on its title) was a successful and witty parody of Martin Lis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vauban Sébastien Le Prestre (Marchese di)
S.n.t, 1708. In-8° antico (174x110mm), pp. (14), 272, legatura coeva p. pelle con titolo e fregi ornamentali in oro su dorso a nervetti. Ritratto del Vauban inciso su rame in antiporta, 4 tabelle ripiegate f.t. Qualche brunitura. Antica firma cassata al contropiatto. Buon esemplare. Reimpressione di questa significativa proposta del grande architetto militare in merito alle finanze pubbliche di Francia e all'imposizione fiscale di un nuovo tipo di decima reale che oltrepassasse, nella tassazione dei beni, le divisioni di classe (nell'opera sono stati scorte alcune anticipazioni anche delle dottrine fisiocratiche). La prima edizione, data alle stampe nel gennaio dell'anno precedente, era stata sequestrata e distrutta per ordine del Parlamento di Parigi (il clero e la nobiltà opposero da subito la loro forte ostilità al progetto di Vauban); la seconda fu pubblicata nello stesso 1707, senza dati tipografici di sorta così come la presente (nel solo 1707, secondo il censimento bibliografico del Carpenter, furono pubblicate 7 distinte edizioni e altre 8 ne furono impresse prima del 1710). Scrive Schumpeter: "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.

Fehlstelle im Bezug). Erste deutsche Ausgabe (Übersetzer G.A.K. nicht aufgelöst). - "Atalanta Fugiens" erschien zuerst lateinisch in Oppenheim bei J.Th. de Bry, 1617 und 1618. Neuausgabe unter dem Titel "Secretioris Naturae Secretorum Scrutinium Chymicum" ohne Noten in Frankfurt, J. Ph. Andreae für Oehrling, 1687. Ihr folgt die vorliegende deutsche Fassung. Das alchemistische Emblembuch - Hauptwerk des führenden Anhängers der Rosenkreuzerbewegung und vielgereisten Alchemisten Maier (um 1568-1622) - enthält eine herausragende Folge Merianscher Kupfer: fünfzig allegorische Darstellungen. Als Schlüsselwerk der esoterischen Alchemie war Maiers Buch, insbesondere in der deutschen Übertragung, bis in das 18. Jahrhundert einflußreich. Bis heute ist es Gegenstand wissenschaftshistorischer Forschung (vgl. de Jong 1988). Jedem Emblemkupfer sind ein deutsches Sinngedicht und Erläuterungen zur Symbolik beigeordnet. Die von Merian (1593-1650) gestochenen Emblemata folgen der mittelalterlichen Tradition der Vermittlung chemischen Wissens durch Bilder. Den symbolhaften Illustrationen liegt Maiers These zugrunde, die Sagen der antiken Mythologie seien als Analogien chemischer Prozesse zu deuten. - Maier hatte 1596 in Basel bei Caspar Bauhin promoviert. Als Arzt stand er in paracelsischer Tradition. Am Hof des an den hermetischen Wissenschaften interessierten Rudolph II. in Prag verbrachte er längere Zei … [Click Below for Full Description]
