POLENI, Giovanni, Marchese
Finely engraved vignette on title & 9 folding engraved plates. 4 p.l., 56 pp. 4to, cont. vellum over boards (a few minor defects to binding). Venice: A. Pavinus, 1709. First edition of Poleni's first book; it is today a scarce work on the market. It includes dissertations on barometers, thermometers, and conical sections in sundials, as well as an illustrated treatise describing his arithmetical calculating machine. Poleni invented his "pin-wheel" calculating machine after reading about those of Pascal (1645) and Leibniz (1671). He built it out of wood, but destroyed it when he heard that Brauer, a Viennese machine-maker, had presented another calculating machine to the Emperor. This book is therefore the only record of his invention and its illustrations were the basis of IBM (Italia)'s reconstruction of it. "The 'pin-wheel' was embodied in a calculating machine which was devised, and constructed in hard wood, by the Italian nobleman, G. Poleni (see his Miscellanea, Venice, 1709). The pin-wheel is a toothed wheel, the number of whose teeth can be varied at will; a simple movement causes 1,2,3...and up to 9 teeth to project; these interact with an equal number of teeth on the cog-wheel controlling the dial whenever the pin-wheel is turned through a complete revolution, and the pointer is moved forward by an equal number of places. Poleni's mechanism for carrying numbers was somewhat akin to Pascal's sautoir, but it was operated by suspended weights instead of by springs."­Wolf, II, p. 656. Pin-wheels have the advantage over stepped reckoners of occup … [Click Below for Full Description]

Origen
London: Printed by B. Mills, and Sold by J. Robinson [n.d., 1709?] First edition thus. Recent full paneled calf, decoratively tooled in gilt and blind, burgundy morocco spine label. Edges sprinkled red, new endpapers. . Octavo. A little light foxing, old ink signature on title-page. A very good copy Origen (ca. 185?ca. 254) was one of the most eloquent and influential of the early Christian writers. He was the son of Leonides, a Christian martyr of Alexandria, and the pupil of Clement of Alexandria. Proficient at Hebrew, he became involved with Biblical studies at an early age and produced a valuable edition of the Old Testament entitled Hexapla. He was also a student of Greek philosophy and attempted to reconcile Platonism with Christianity. The present work is in response to the work of the second century pagan philosopher Celsus. The work itself has been lost, though much of it is preserved in Origen's response. "The Contra Celsum is the culmination of the great apologetic movement of the second and third centuries A.D., and is for the Greek Church what St Augustine's City of God is for Western Christendom. It is also one of the chief monuments of the coming together of ancient Greek culture and the new faith of the expanding Christian society. Thus Origen's work is of interest not only to the historian and theologian, but also to the Hellenist" (publisher's promotional material for a 1980 Cambridge University Press edition, translated by Henry Chadwick.)

Recent full paneled calf, decoratively tooled in gilt and blind, burgundy morocco spine label. Edges sprinkled red, new endpapers. . Octavo. A little light foxing, old ink signature on title-page. A very good copy Origen (ca. 185Ðca. 254) was one of the most eloquent and influential of the early Christian writers. He was the son of Leonides, a Christian martyr of Alexandria, and the pupil of Clement of Alexandria. Proficient at Hebrew, he became involved with Biblical studies at an early age and produced a valuable edition of the Old Testament entitled Hexapla. He was also a student of Greek philosophy and attempted to reconcile Platonism with Christianity. The present work is in response to the work of the second century pagan philosopher Celsus. The work itself has been lost, though much of it is preserved in Origen's response. "The Contra Celsum is the culmination of the great apologetic movement of the second and third centuries A.D., and is for the Greek Church what St Augustine's City of God is for Western Christendom. It is also one of the chief monuments of the coming together of ancient Greek culture and the new faith of the expanding Christian society. Thus Origen's work is of interest not only to the historian and theologian, but also to the Hellenist" (publisher's promotional material for a 1980 Cambridge University Press edition, translated by Henry Chadwic

An extremely scarce alchemical work - it is essentially an expanded edition of a small work, The Marrow of Alchymy, which was first published in two parts by Edward Brewster in 1654 and 1655. The Marrow of Alchymy soon became a sought-after rarity, with historian and hermetic scholar Daniel Georg Morhof (1639 – 1691) commenting to this effect as early as 1673. No author's name is given on the main title page of A True Light of Alchymy, however on the separate title page to the second part it is attributed to one Eirenæus Philoponus Philalethes, as was The Marrow of Alchymy.

The 1708 edition is said to be the first surviving book printed by stereotype printing (See PMM Exhibition Catalogue, 309). The printer, Johann Muller, printed a small prayer book in 1701 by stereoype but no copy has survived; this Lexicon, along with the Syriac New Testament, was the second. While the 1708 printing of the Lexicon is rare, this 1709 edition is likewise nearly as scarce.

Anne Finch Countess of Winchilsea (1661-1720)
1709  Octavo A8. 16 pp. This copy is bound in full parchment over boards, with marbled paper paste downs.?The physical disability and psychological perturbations of melancholy were well known to one of the foremost women poets of the eighteenth century, Anne Finch, Countess of Winchilsea. As a victim of the malady, her description of its effects were firsthand and specific, with none of the generalities born of vague knowledge [...] Lady Winchilsea begins her best-known poem on the subject, ?The Spleen? (1701), by describing the malady as ?Proteus to abus?d Mankind.? No one can find the cause of the affliction, she writes, nor can one ?fix thee to remain in one continued Shape.? By speaking of melancholy in these terms, Lady Winchilsea is echoing the sentiments of contemporary physicians who frequently compared the disease to Proteus, the shape-changing god of the sea, because its manifestations were always changing, continuously shifting from one part of the body to another, while constantly mimicking other diseases. Underlying its various forms, however, was the notion expounded by the Countess and contemporary physicians alike that melancholy was a mixed malady of body and mind, causing the sufferer physical pain and the psychological disorders of anxiety, grief, and fear without cause.? (Melancholy in Anne Finch and Elizabeth Carter, by John F. Sena) ??Spleen? is for Finch both triumph and failure. It is only once the spleen has affected the speaker that she describes her poetry as fallen, decayed failure. But, at the same time, the spleen allows her to assert that she … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manley, Mary de la Rivière
London: Printed for John Morphew near Stationer's Hall, and J. Woodward in St. Christopher's Church-yard, in Thread-needle-street, 1709. Printed: 1709. 1663-1724 Two octavo volumes, 7.5 x 4.5 inches. Second edition of the volume one; first edition of the second part. I: A4, B-Q8, R4; II: A-S8. (A8 is blank and present in this copy.) Volume one has the remains of a bookplate of Elizabeth Chaworth. Volume two has the engraved allegorical frontispiece. Both volumes are bound in matching full contemporary calf, a little cracking at the joints but the boards are still holding on. Of Mrs. Manley's life we know even less than that of Mrs. Behn, for our chief source of information is her own 'account of her life and times,' which contains more fiction than fact. We do know, however, that she was born in 1663, and lived most of her disreputable life in and about London, supporting herself by writing scurrilous articles, indecent plays, and scandalous stories. Her father, Sir Roger Manley, was associated in some mysterious way with the Turkish Spy, so that Mrs. Manley may be said to have been predisposed in favor of pseudo-historical compilations of political and social gossip. [.] In 1709, she published the notorious Secret Memoirs and Manners, in which she combined the secret-memoir and the ideal commonwealth. For this scandalous attack on the Whigs, she was arrested, and not discharged until 1710. So popular had it proved,however, that Mrs. Manley was induced to write continuations under various titles."
