Bayle, Pierre.
London: Printed for J. Morphew… 1708 First edition in English of the first important work by Pierre Bayle, which was first published anonymously in 1682 as Pensées diverses sur la comète de 1680. Contemporary calf, gilt spines with morocco labels, edges sprinkled red. . Two volumes, octavo. Corners, joints rubbed, both free endpapers with tears along the edges. A good, clean copy. Bayle (1647-1706), was the most influential skeptic of his day. The present work appeared while he was professor of philosophy and history at the Protestant academy of Rotterdam. It discusses the many superstitions that were brought to light by the reappearance of Halley's Comet in 1680. He makes a detailed study of all the facts relating to comets and concludes that there was no mystery about such phenomena, which are bound to the normal laws of nature. He goes on to discuss astrology, demonology, magic, the cabbala, which he also condemns. He also concludes that morality is independent of religion, and his doctrine of toleration is chiefly set forth in this work. The original edition was banned in France.

Johann Jacob Scheuchzer
L'autore, Zurich Zurigo, 1708. Prima edizione in tedesco del trattato sull'origine fossile dei pesci di Scheuchzer. In-8°, ma le pagine di testo sono montate su fogli formato in folio, pp. 8, e 5 tavole incise all'acquaforte, di cui una grande ripiegata e quattro a doppia pagina. L'autore delle incisioni è J. Hen. Hubert, e i pezzi ritratti hanno didascalie in latino e indicano la provenienza dei reperti, la maggior parte dal Museo Scheuchzeriano, alcuni dal Museo Valkeneriano. Le tavole hanno una straordinaria finezza esecutiva e oggettività nel ritrarre i fossili. Il testo contiene un'introduzione e la spiegazione dettagliata delle tavole, con parti in latino. Legatura in cartonato. In questo trattato scientifico Scheuchzer (1672-1733), uno dei più grandi scienziati svizzeri, considerato il padre della paleontologia europea e della paleobotanica, sostiene l'origine organica di questi animali fossili, e quindi il fatto di essere stati "testimoni" del Diluvio Universale, fornendo un importante contributo anche alla geologia. La collezione che l'autore mise insieme a partire dal 1690 divenne ben presto molto nota in Svizzera. paleobotany paleontology geology science fossils switzerland fishes ittica paleontologia paleobotanica fossili geologia scienze museum collection natural history

Blackmore, Richard
London 1708 - [Blackmore, Sir Richard.] The Kit-Cats. A poem. London: printed for E. Sanger and E. Curll, 1708. (4), 19(1) pp. Folio, recent stiff marbled wrappers. First edition. A mock-heroic poem on the Kit-Cat Club, a Whig dining club founded by the bookseller and publisher Jacob Tonson, here anagrammatically represented as "Bocaj." The club was formed to promote the principles of the Revolution and the Protestant succession, but it soon acquired a social and literary purpose, and attracted such Tonson authors as Addison and Steele, Garth, Prior, Halifax, Congreve, and Vanbrugh. The curious name of the club came from the pastry cook Christopher Catling, at whose house near Temple Bar the members often met. Blackmore was very much the outsider. To the modern reader this is one of his most amusing poems. "Some of the lines are rather good, particularly those dealing with the god Dulness and his abode. There is much contemporary satire; names are thinly disguised. The reminiscences of Mac Flecknoe and The Dispensary are especially interesting." -- Bond, English Burlesque Poetry, 1701-1750, 20.

DE L'ISLE, Guillaume (1675-1726)
Paris: "Chez l'Auteur sur le Quai de l'Horloge", 1708. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. A foundation map of America. "In 1700, Claude and Guillaume De L'Isle [first] published their foundation map of North America. What better way to usher in the eighteenth century cartographically than with this significant and influential map. It encapsulates an era in which the French exemplified a reliance on scientific mapping and beautifully incorporated it into the earlier influence of decorative augmentation" (Burden). Tooley adds: "A foundation map. The Great Lakes based on Coronelli show the French strong points at Tadousac, Quebec, Fort Sorel, Montreal & Fort Frontenac. the English settlements confined to the east of the Alleghenies, with Fort and River Kinibeki as the border between New England and Acadia. The Mississippi valley area is shown well developed with the recent French settlement of d'Iberville at Bilochy and forts at Bon Secours and St. Louis. In this map De L'Isle corrected longitude positions and was the first to revert to a peninsula form of California."

CELLARIUS, Andreas (c.1596-1665)
G. Valk & P. Schenk, [Amsterdam 1708 - One of the finest and most decorative celestial charts ever produced, from the Valk & Schenk edtion of Cellarius This chart is from the Harmonia Macrocosmica seu Atlas Universalis et Novus (Harmonious Universe or New and Universal Atlas) by Andreas Cellarius, the finest celestial atlas ever produced. It demonstrates the Ptolemaic theory of epicycles. The epicycles theory addressed a problem that arose from the assumption that if the Earth was the center of the universe, then the circuit of the planets should be of a steady one-directional, circular progress. Observation showed, however, that the orbital progress of the planets was in fact irregular, and from these observations arose the ancient theory of epicycles illustrated here. It is a beautiful image, timeless in the abstract harmony of colour, shape and composition, and also a record of the restless search of the human mind to apprehend order in the universe. This chart was originally engraved during the greatest era of Dutch map-making, in 1660, by Johannes Janssonius of Amsterdam. It was reprinted by Janssonius in 1661, and again in 1708 by Gerard Valk 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 t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andreas Cellarius (1656-1702)
Amsterdam, Schenk and Valk 1708 - Andreas Cellarius (1656-1702) From Atlas Coelestis seu Harmonia Macrocosmica Amsterdam: Schenk and Valk, 1708 Hand-colored copperplate engravings 32” x 36 1/2” framed Framed in beautiful 24 carat gold leaf frames with hand-detailing to museum specifications (UV plexiglasss). In addition to their lavish aesthetic appeal, the celestial charts of Andreas Cellarius comprise the most sweeping, ambitious project in the history of celestial cartography, one which also illustrates the historical tensions of the time. Cellarius’ maps present the evolution of the field of astronomy from ancient times until his own. In his distinctive visual language, Cellarius portrayed the often-conflicting theories that prevailed. In addition to the relatively obscure notions of Tycho Brahe and Schiller, Cellarius’s charts track the theories of Ptolemy, dating from the 2nd century AD, and Copernicus’s 16th-century challenge to the venerable ancient astronomer. Cellarius’ project was not devoid of political motivation. Up to his time of artistic activity, the Netherlands had been the unquestioned center of scientific discovery, and Dutch mapmakers had reigned supreme above all others. In the early 18th century, Louis XV of France sought to bring his country to the forefront of science, and by association, to imply political dominance. His efforts led to great competition between France and the Netherlands, and Cellarius’ sweeping project was an attempt to thwart French attempts completely. In some cases, Cellarius incorporated Fren … [Click Below for Full Description]

A beautiful plan of London by Christopher Hatton. This plan is a later reworking of the earlier, famous, Elizabethan plan of London by Braun and Hogenberg. The major differences between the two plans are; the decorative title cartouche at the top has gone completely, and the replacement of four figures from the foreground with Hatten's immensely decorative and eye catching rococo style title cartouche with fruits. There are also two Latin explanation tables in the foreground.
