HYDE, Edward (Lord Cornbury), Richard Ingoldesby, Robert Hunter, (William Bradford)
New Jersey, 1708. Unbound. Good. Folio. Measuring 8.25" x 13". Unbound folio gathering of 18 leaves, with two additional leaves laid in: a total of 40 pages, of which 38 are written in holograph. The first and last leaves of the gathering are detached, toned and frayed at the edges, with a few scattered small holes and chips, else about very good, with toning and fraying to the edges of the next one or two outer leaves. A very early ledger from the Province of New Jersey, consisting of financial records kept under the Colony's first three Governors (1708-13), together with manuscript drafts of two 1733 legislative "acts" presumably of the General Assembly of the Province of New Jersey: (1.) to "better enable Creditors to recover their just Debt from Debtors who abscond themselves," and (2.) "for the relief & discharge of poor distressed Prisoners for Debt." The financial records comprise the first half of the ledger: [pp. 1-18, 4 (laid-in)]. Most entries are descriptions of payments issued by the Governor to his Receiver-General (Treasurer). The entries are numbered and written in various secretarial hands in accordance with the convention of the day. Those issued by Lord Cornbury date from the end of his seven-year term as Governor (November, 1708). Described by his political enemies as "a degenerate and pervert" and "quite possibly the worst governor in the history of the empire," Cornbury was accused of accepting bribes, embezzlement of defense funds, and fiscal mismanagement. In 1708 he was removed from office, arrested for unpaid debts, and sent to jail for 17 month … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEIBNIZ, GOTTFRIED. - [LEIBNIZ' FAMOUS REVIEW OF NEWTON'S "ARITHMETICA"]
Leipzig, Grosse & Gleditsch, 1708. 4to. Entire volume present. Nice contemporary full vellum. Small yellow paper label pasted to top of spine and library-label to front free end-papers. Internally some occasional browning and brownspotting. Overall a nice and tight copy. Leibniz-paper:] pp. 519-26. [Entire volume: (2), 555, (43) pp.]. ¶ First edition of Leibnitz' two reviews: the famous review of Newton's "Arithmetica Universalis" and the review of Gabriele Manfredi's "De constructione". <br><br>In the 1707 Newton published a series of lecture notes - unlikely ever actually delivered - named the Arithmetica Universalis. The book closely built upon the structure of and content of Kinkhuysen's Algebra, a typical seventeenth-century textbook on equation-solving, which made it from a first glance seem quite ordinary. The content, however, was more extraordinary than the form; he described rules and measure without the needed explanation and proofs which consequently resulted in extensive commentaries and academic debates. <br><br>The present paper by Leibniz is the first non-anonymous review of Newton's work and is the only public assessment of Arithmetica to be published during Newton's lifetime. "It will service to reveal high highly Leibniz estimated Newton's mathematical expertise in the classical field of algebra and synthetic geometry." Derek Thomas Whiteside The Mathematical Papers of Isaac Newton: 1683-1684, 1881, 23 p.)<br><br>The review stands today as a testament to Leibniz high regards for Newton; the quarrels over the calculus had not affected Leibniz' view of Newt … [Click Below for Full Description]

MONTMORT, Pierre Rémond de
Paris: J. Quilau, 1708. Rare first edition, first issue (i.e., without plates and with significant textual differences in comparison with the second issue also from 1708 which has plates). Based on the problem's set forth by Huygens in his famous treatise De Ratiociniis in Ludo Aleae (1657), it spawned the publication of De Moivre's two important works De Mesura Sortis (1711) and Doctrine of Chances (1718) as well as Bernoulli's celebrated Ars Conjectandi (1713). "Huygens heard of about Pascal's and Fermat's ideas [on games of chance] but had to work out the details for himself. His treatise De ratiociniis in ludo aleae ... essentially followed Pascal's method of expectation. ... At the end of his treatise, Huygens listed five problems about fair odds in games of chance, some of which had already been solved by Pascal and Fermat. These problems, together with similar questions inspired by other card and dice games popular at the time, set an agenda for research that continued for nearly a century. The most important landmarks of this work are Bernoulli's Ars conjectandi (1713), Montmort's Essay d'analyse sur les jeux de hazard (editions in 1708 and 1711 [recto: 1713]) and De Moivre's Doctrine of Chances (editions in 1718, 1738, and 1756). These authors investigated many of the problems still studied under the heading of discrete probability, including gamblers ruin, duration of play, handicaps, coincidences and runs. In order to solve these problems, they improved Pascal and Fermat's combinatorial reasoning, summed infinite series, developed the method of inclusion and excl … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOCKE, John.
London: printed for A. and J. Churchill, 1708. Octavo (189 x 112 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, red morocco label, edges sprinkled red. Expertly refurbished, with joints repaired and new sympathetic label. Small chip at head of final few leaves, final page lightly soiled. A very good copy. First edition, the first authorized collection of any letters by Locke. 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 three sets of correspondence. The first are the letters between Locke and the Irish experimental philosopher William Molyneux (1656–1698), a correspondence which lasted from 1692 until Molyneux's death. The volume contains the first printed form of the letter sent by Molyneux on 2 March 1693, where he proposed what has since become known as "Molyneux's Problem", which enquires whether a blind man able to distinguish between a sphere and cube by touch would be able to do so if he gained his sight. Both Locke and Molyneux agreed that he could not, and "the problem had profound philosophical implications and became a key topic in British philosophy" (ODNB). Locke referenced the problem in his Essay Concerning Human Understanding in 1689. The second collection of letters consists of those between Locke and Willliam Molyneux's son Thomas (1661–1733), and the third collection consists of letters in Latin between Locke and his friend Philippus van Limborch (1633–1712), the Dutch theologian. The book is unusual in including letters both to and from the re … [Click Below for Full Description]

CELLARIUS, Andreas (ca 1596-1665).
Amsterdam:Pieter Schenk and Gerald Valk, 1708. Folio (20 x 12 3/8 inches). Letterpress title-page printed in red and black with woodcut vignette, duplicate letterpress title-page (top edge strengthened with archival tissue). Additional engraved allegorical title-page by F.H. van Hoven, 29 double-page engraved cosmographical charts, all with EXCEPTIONALLY FINE ORIGINAL HAND-COLOUR IN FULL, the borders light grisaille. Contemporary panelled sheep (rebacked to style, one or two surface abrasions, corners strengthened, later endpapers). Second edition, first published in 1660. In this edition the plates are unaltered from the first edition, except for the addition of the imprint "Prostant Amstelaedami apud Petrum Schenk, et Geradum Valk. C.P." In addition to their lavish aesthetic appeal, the 29 double-page celestial charts of Cellarius' "Harmonia macrocosmica", 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 cente … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johann Christoph Volckamer inherited the garden and started to cultivate citrus fruit, a hobby amongst the wealthy classes, in which he had become interested during a visit in Italy. "He visited many gardens in the neighbourhood and further afield as far as Venice and Bologna, beginning to study the endless varieties of citrus fruit he saw. Even after his return to Germany his friends among Italian gardeners and nurserymen supplied him with citrus trees and kept him informed of new developments" (S.Raphael, An Oak Spring Pomona, p. 192).According to the preface most of the excellent plates are after drawings by the author and his brother Johann Christoph Volckamer II, s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pleine bas. d'époque, dos à nerfs orné, titre de maroquin rouge. (vol 1: salissure p. 54-55, ensemble très frais). Edition originale de ce voyage aux iles des indes orientales de François Le Guat (1637-1735) lui-même. Ce dernier, protestant calviniste (huguenot), fut, de par la révocation de l'Edit de Nantes, forcé à l'exil en Hollande en 1689. Il se trouvait que les hollandais avaient permis à ceux qui suivaient la religion réformée, de s'établir sur tous leurs comptoirs ainsi qu'en toute île administrée par eux, telle Rodrigues, encore inhabitée. Henri Du Quesne (1642-1722) avait projeté de créer une colonie de réfugiés français à l'île de Mascareignes (aujourd'hui île de la Réunion). L'auteur et dix volontaires s'embarquèrent alors en avant-garde pour l'île à bord d'une petite frégate l’Hirondelle. Le voyage tourna court et le 30 avril 1691, huit huguenots, dont François Leguat, quittèrent le navire Hirondelle pour descendre à terre et fouler le sol de Rodrigues, découvrant une île quasi paradisiaque et encore inhabitée. Ils y construisirent des huttes et attendirent la venue d'autres navigateurs. Seulement, comme personne ne vint, les colons se résolurent à quitter l’île à bord d'un rafiot de fortune arrangé par eux-mêmes et gagnèrent Maurice o … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 philosophy" … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAJERI, Joh. Jacobi. (BAIER, Johann Jakob)
Norimbergae (Nuremberg): Wolfgangi Michahellis, 1708. First edition. Small 4to. (viii), 102 pp. Contemporary full vellum, gilt lettered morocco label, the 19th century armorial bookplate of Cecil Deedes to the front pastedown. Frontispiece and 6 folding plates of fossils, all finely engraved by Johann Georg Puschner. Slight wear to the spine label, a little foxing to the frontispiece and some light marginal dampstaining at intervals, a very good copy overall. An uncommon and groundbreaking work in the sciences of geology and palaeontology, being an early attempt to provide a systematic classification of the fossils found in and around Nuremberg. The work paved the way for later analyses of fossils and the history of the earth on a more scientific basis. Baier proposed issuing additional volumes, but only managed a single supplement (published 1730) before his early death at the age of 58. His son Ferdinand subsequently published an equally scarce second supplement in 1757 and an expanded second edition a year later using his papers. The fine plates feature just under 200 illustrations of samples collected. [Attributes: First Edition]

Pozzi; Trient 1642 - 1709 Wien) war Maler und Architekt, er gehörte als Laienbruder dem Jesuitenorden an, für den er als Freskenmaler und Architekt zahlreiche Kirchen gestaltete. Für die Ordenskirche S. Ignazio in Rom, die keine Kuppel erhalten durfte, malte er 1684 in die Vierung erstmals eine "Scheinkuppel". Diese Trompe-l'oeil-Architektur hat Pozzo berühmt gemacht. Das vorliegende Werk erschien zuerst 1693 in Italien und wurde bald in andere Sprachen übersetzt, es ist eine Einführung in die perspektivische Architekturmalerei mit Erläuterungen ihrer geometrischen Voraussetzungen. Die Tafeln am Ende des ersten Bandes können als Anleitung zum Malen einer Scheinkuppel verstanden werden.

First edition of an early and "esteemed" (Harting) work on falconry, containing detailed information on the breeding and training of falcons, hawks, and sparrow hawks, with notes on their feeding and care. It was an important source for Turberville's The booke of faulconrie or hawking, the best known work on hawking of the 16th century. With a dedication to Marchese Carlo Gonzaga, whom Giorgio appears to have served as falconer. Carlo Gonzaga was a member of the well-known Italian Gonzaga family, which ruled Mantua from 1328 to 1708. At the Gonzaga court there, falconry was practiced according to ancient traditions and was an important part of the family's favourite pastime: hunting.With early owner's inscription. Several restorations in the gutter, some spots on the title-page, thumbing in the first couple leaves, and faint dampstains in in the margins of the last leaves. Good copy. Some brown specks on the wrappers and the spine slightly soiled, but otherwise good. [Attributes: First Edition]

Francesco Fini contro il Sig. Filippo Dogliosi. In Firenze, appresso Piero Matini stampatore arcivescovale, 1707. Pp. (4) 81 (1). Due opere in un volume di cm. 24. Ottima legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli ms. al dorso e unghie; tagli spruzzati. Sporadiche e trascurabili fioriture, ultimo quaderno allentato. Esemplare ben conservato. Prima opera: Anton Francesco Bertini (1658-1726) fu medico di fama, erudito e buon prosatore. Quest'opera (conosciuta con il titolo di Giampaolaggine poiché rivolta contro Giovanni Paolo Lucardesi), di natura letteraria, si inserisce nell'ambito delle pubblicazioni polemiche che seguirono l'uscita de La medicina difesa dalle calunnie degli uomini volgari (Lucca, 1699), opera che conteneva un ampio e obiettivo esame delle dottrine mediche dei tempo, nonché l'elenco delle principali scoperte mediche e dei più valorosi scrittori di medicina del Seicento. Così Gamba (1797): "Quantunque la Giampaolaggine sia attibuita a Pier Francesco Tocci, tuttavia che sia scritta dal Bertini, e non dal Tocci, è asserito nella ristampa seguente [...] pochi libri critici e satirici ho letto con tanto piacere, quanto me en ha dato questa Giampaolaggine". Prima edizione, nella variante con l'aggiunta a c. a2 dell'epigrafe greca seguita dalla traduzione italiana. Per le notizie sull'Autore si vedano Cfr. Melzi, G.

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.

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.

Parmi les nombreuses défenses, celle de travailler le Dimanche et jours de Fêtes, d'aller au cabaret durant le service Divin (amende de dix livres). [Attributes: First Edition]
