The importance of mathematics in architecture, the use of a mod in building, and the theory of proportions are all stressed in Civil-Bau-Kuns It also contains an illustrated, multi-lingual glossary of architectural term a brief history of architecture, and a series of plans and elevations of mode buildings, many of which are folding. Early leaves thumbed; waterstain on frontispiece and title page; minor, sporadic foxing; covers lightly sunned; t worn.

An important mezzotint portrait by Johann Jakob Haid, of one of the greatest 18th botanical artists, after an original portrait by Heckell.Johann Jakob Haid came from a German family of artists and printmakers. Haid worked initially with the animal painter Johann Elias Ridinger, but he soon went on to found a well-known publishing house in Augsburg.This portrait is from a series which pictured those most closely involved in the publication of Trew's Plantae Selectae , and was originally bound into that great botanical work.Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-70) was the son of a Heidelberg gardener, whose predilection for and talent for drawing flowers allowed him to escape from garden labor to a wide circle of aristocratic acquaintance in Germany, Paris and England, where he settled in 1736. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1757.

OCKLEY, SIMON
London: Printed for R. Knaplock, 1708. FIRST EDITION. This work promises in its extended title to portray "the lives of Abubeker, Omar and Othman, the immediate successors of Mahomet, giving an account of their most remarkable battles, sieges, etc., particularly those of Aleppo, Antioch, Damascus, Alexandria and Jerusalem, illustrating the religion, rites, customs and manner of living of that warlike people." It is "collected from the most authentick Arabick authors, especially manuscripts, not hitherto publish'd in any European language." Archbishop Laud was a collector of Arabic manuscripts, which he donated to the Bodleian library at Oxford, and it was there that Ockley labored over the Arabic tomes. Foremost among these were the texts ascribed to Al-Wâkidî (now known as the Futuh esh-Sham), which Ockley used to write the present stirring and sympathetic account of the heroic days of the rise of Islam, the first work in English to rely on such early, if somewhat romanticized, sources. Simon Ockley (1678-1720) was an impoverished vicar, educated in oriental languages at Cambridge. A pioneer in his field, he worked tirelessly on the translating of Arabic manuscripts. The present book is his best-known work; he brought out a sequel in 1718.. 203 x 133 mm. (8 x 5 1/4"). xxiv, [iv], 391 pp., [8] leaves. FIRST EDITION.

Very Good. 4 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches. 8vo. 8 pages + 109 numbered pages (Publick Prayer) + 149 numbered pages with separate title page (Communion) + 3 leaf catalogue of books printed for Richard Smith. With the engraved portrait of the author. Some contemporary writing on preliminaries and rear pastedown. A few pages with light marginal dampstaining. Armorial bookplate of J. Danson of York on front pastedown and neat contemporary inscription to title page. Bound in full brown paneled calf with a little cracking and chipping to the spine and rounding of the corners. ESTCN47453. After the Restoration, vigorous efforts were made around the country to obey the rubric about daily prayer and the tolling of the bell. Beveridge in this work determined "to conform the Church of England to that model." This earned for him the title of "the great reviver and restorer of primitive piety." He speaks of the Church of England "in high and glowing language" and urged the Church to "supply[] a constant round of Daily Services and Frequent Communions, exercising more vigorous discipline, and awakening her members to a higher and livelier estimation of the ministration and ordinances of the Church." This caused him to resolve to maintain things as he found them and act to give life to the existing system, opposing the "Scheme of Comprehension" and the projected alterations in the liturgy.

Ett av de äldsta Skaratrycken. Variant utan tryckfelslista på s. 112. Ett av förorden är daterat "Brunsbo then 20 januarii åhr 1708", så det är väl möjligt att vissa ark av boken tryckts redan 1707 och sålunda samma år som de små cirkulärskrivelser som räknas som de första Skaratrycken. Enligt Sallander utkom dock Adam Rechenbergs "Lineamenta" före denna. Boken, som var tänkt att "med lust/ och lika som med lek/ lära/ jemte latinen, wackra seder", innehåller 1200 ordspråk, -stäv och sentenser på latin, grekiska, hebreiska och svenska och en stor del av texten finns även i svensk översättning.

Excellent condition, except for slight browning, mild marginal foxing and small repair at the top of the center fold. 22 1/2 x 37 1/2 inches. 24 1/4 x 38 1/2 inches. Moll's map of Europe is a good example of his mature cartographic style: large scale, clear, bold, with incidental notes that seem to derive from an exuberant curiosity, quite unlike the more restrained and formal French and Dutch maps of the previous century. Moll was a great admirer of Peter the Great and does not forego this opportunity to illustrate in an inset a canal Peter had dug that connected the Volga and the Don, thus connecting the Caspian and Black Seas. A dotted line illustrates the route one would follow from the place where the Don and Volga meet, through the Black Sea, through the Bosporus, the Aegean and Mediterranean to the Atlantic. The present map was part of Herman Moll's magnificent folio work, a New and Compleat Atlas. Moll was the most important cartographer working in London during his era, a career that spanned over fifty years. His origins have been a source of great scholarly debate; however, the prevailing opinion suggests that he hailed from the Hanseatic port city of Bremen, Germany. Joining a number of his countrymen, he fled the turmoil of the Scanian Wars for London, and in 1678 is first recorded as working there as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of the English Atlas. It was not long before Moll found himself as a charter member of London's most interesting s … [Click Below for Full Description]

CELLARIUS, Andreas (c.1596-1665)
[Amsterdam: G. Valk & P. Schenk, 1708]. Copper-engraved celestial chart, with full original colour. 19 3/4 x 22 3/4 inches. One of the finest and most highly decorative celestial charts ever produced, from the Valk & Schenk edition of Cellarius This beautiful 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 depicts the entire eastern terrestrial hemisphere, from a cosmic perspective, showing the various climate zones and population centres of the 'Old World'. The image is bordered by a field of richly- coloured auricular swirls, a stunning and unique product of the Dutch renaisssance in the decorative arts. The present image was engraved in 1660 by Jan Janssonius, during the great era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw the perfection of the art of representing scientific ideas in graphic form using engraving. 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 the Harmonia Macrocosmica. Cellarius resigned from his post as headmaster in early 1665 and died in Hoorn in November of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

CELLARIUS, Andreas (c.1596-1665)
[Amsterdam: G. Valck & P. Schenk, 1708]. Copper-engraved celestial chart, with full original colour. 19 3/4 x 22 3/4 inches. . One of the finest and most highly decorative celestial charts ever produced, from the Valk & Schenk edition 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 shows the various aspects of the planets from an astrological view point. It is a beautiful image, timeless in the abstract harmony of colour, shape, and composition, and also a record of the restless searching of the human mind for order in the un-ordered universe. The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were a period when great advances were made in the understanding of the universe and our place within it. In tandem with these scientific advances came the perfection of the art of representing these ideas in a graphic form using engravings. The present image by Cellarius is the perfect example of this synthesis: an exquisite work of art that embodies the contemporary state of scientific knowledge of the heavens. It was originally engraved during the greatest era of Dutch map- making, and was first published, 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.

CELLARIUS, Andreas (c.1596-1665)
[Amsterdam: G. Valk & P. Schenk, 1708]. Copper-engraved celestial map, with full original colour. Very good condition apart from two printer's creases left and right margins and intruding an inch or so into image. 19 3/4 x 22 3/4 inches. One of the finest and most highly decorative celestial charts ever produced, from the Valk & Schenk edition 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 depicts a supposed orbit of the Sun around the Earth according Ptolemaic theory. The circular path of the Sun centers on a point other than the Earth, which is shown to be the center of the Zodiacal Circle, this being at odds with the Solar path. If the Earth were stationary, as was supposed, and the path of the Sun circular, it would necessarily follow the same path at the same distance every day. Clearly, this is not the case, and this chart endeavors to articulate the Classical explanation for the apparent irregularities of the Sun's motion, without resorting to epicycles. This chart was originally created during the great era of Dutch map-making and was first published 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.

CELLARIUS, Andreas (c.1596-1665)
G. Valk & P.Schenk, Amsterdam 1708 - 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 superimposed over the North Pole, Europe and northern Asia. It 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. According to 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 revolved around the Earth. The present image was first engraved in 1660 by Jan Janssonius, during the great era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw the perfection of the art of representing scientific ideas in graphic form through engraving. It was reprinted by Janssonius in 1661, and again in 1708 by Gerard Valk and Petrus Schenk, who added their names to the plates.

SCHEUCHZER, J.J.
Londini, H. Clements, 1708. 3 parts (bound in 1 volume). 4to (226 x 175mm). pp. (4), (2), 57, (1); (2), 72; (2), 22, with 1 engraved portrait (of Scheuchzer), 3 engraved frontispieces and 41 (2 folded & 1 partly coloured) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, spine with later rebacking. First edition, which was published at the expense of the Royal Society. It is interesting for its connection with Sir Isaac Newton - the frontispieces to the three parts having been printed at his expense. Johan Jacob Scheuchzer (1672-1733; physician and scientist in Zurich) was the first to travel in Switzerland with mathematical and physical instruments. From 1702 onwards he travelled in the Alps year for year. The results have been published in the above work, the first scientific research papers dealing with natural history, palaeontology, physics and glaciology - a science, which was established by him. The finely engraved plates of the work (all in clear and strong impressions) depict plants, machinery, watercourses, alpine walkways, minerals, etc. An important classic, containing "fascinating details of the mountain journeys that Scheuchzer made all over Switzerland including his thoughts on the movement of glaciers" (Hoover 718). There is a general title to the book and part titles to the three parts.Ward & Carozzi 1966. [Attributes: First Edition]
