        Regnum Neapolis in quo sunt Aprutium Ulterius et Citerius, Comitatus Molisius, Terra Laboris, Capitaniata Principatus Ulterior et Citerior Terra Bariensis et Hidruntina, Basilicata, Calabria Citerior et Ulterior

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1710. A beautiful Dutch map of the Kingdom of Naples This map is from an edition of Frederick De Wit's maps made by Pierre Mortier about 1710. De Wit had brought to Dutch cartography a decorative flare and an appreciation for the Baroque that most of his contemporaries lacked. Here in his map of the Kingdom of Naples, putti hold up a banner of the handsome armorial shields of the various provinces and in the cartouche in the lower right display the arms of Naples. As one expects in a map by De Wit, the engraving is extremely fine (one can see a little eruption over Mount Vesuvius) and the calligraphy is distinct and readable. The Kingdom of Naples was rarely autonomous. At the time this map was issued, it was ruled by Hapsburg Austria, who occupied it during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1703. The Spanish re-conquered the kingdom during the War of the Polish Succession (1733-35). Koeman, Mor 12. Engraving with full, period colour. There is a crease parallel to the centerfold, otherwise, excellent condition.

Contains all 271 issues of Richard Steele's witty periodical, with essays and commentary on the life of the day, published from April, 1709 to January, 1711.

Contemporary blind-panelled calf boards, handsomely rebacked with six gilt panels and raised bands to spine. Some light foxing to volumes I and II, otherwise internally fine; light wear to extremities, and tiny chip to spine head of volume III.

        Nova totius Americae Tabula

      Amsterdam: Pieter Schenk II, 1710. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE VISSCHER WALL MAP OF THE AMERICAS (c.1710) Wall map on 2 engraved sheets with additional banner title across the top and five engraved views across the bottom Total dimensions 31 3/4" x 37 1/2" Backed on linen with wooden rollers The Visscher family was one of the leading map-publishing dynasties of seventeenth century Amsterdam founded by Claes Jansz. Visscher (1587-1652), and continued by his son Nicolaes (I) (1618-1677) then his grandson Nicolaes II (1649-1702), to his widow Elizabeth (d.1726). From her, many of the map plates passed to Pieter Schenk (II), the publisher of this fine wall-map. It is presumed, based on the delineation of the Americas, particularly the Great Lakes region and the Pacific coast, with the insular form of California, that this map was first published by Nicolaes Visscher (II) circa 1680, and this may indeed may be the two-sheet wall map of the Americas listed in Nicolaes II's catalogue of 1682. The two elaborate cartouches were designed by Philip Tideman and engraved by Willem van Gouwen, both of who worked for Visscher in the 1680s. Geographically the map is comparable with the Jan Mathisz two-sheet map of the Americas, published in 1655, common features being the single open-ended Great Lake and the flat northern coastline for California. The running title is printed from two separate plates pasted outside the upper border, evidently a generic banner, with the word 'Americae' on a paste-on over the original engraving - 'Europae'. Outside the lower border are five harbour views of American settlements, based also on Mathisz. The five views are 'Nombred Dios' (near Panama), 'Panama', 'Nieu Jork', 'S. Salvador' (Watlings Island), 'Caput S. Augustini' (St. Augustine, Florida?). The view of New York, signed by Schenk, is believed to be an unrecorded view of the city, after Visscher (or Blaeu), with the title reflecting the British capture of the city from the Dutch in 1674. This fine example of Visscher's wall map of the Americas has wonderfully oxidised original color and is in excellent condition.. Book.

The volume is bound similarly to all the others, so possibly the binding is contemporary to this date, it's certainly an early to mid 18th Century binding. 2 blanks before Title. (xlviii) + 109 pp + 48 pp. One illustration. Volume 9 - 1712. Compleating the whole work. 2 blanks before Title. (xliv) + 140 pp. Some lovely copper 'cuts' illustrating this work and some others in the text. (incl. Subscriber's List + 'Advertisement' which states - "There are only 120 copies of this book printed....). Unfortunately NOT a complete set but 7 of the volumes are the very Scarce FIRST EDITIONS, with one later 18th Century volume (8) and sadly lacking Volume 4 completely. Rare in this form.

        [Army Discharge] George Washington (1731-1799) Former U.S. President (1789-1797) and Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army (June 15, 1775 -December 23, 1783)

      Official discharge document signed by George Washington and countersigned by Jonathan Trumbull (1710-1785) who was Governor of Connecticut and the president’s personal aid, dated June 7, 1783. Document measures approx. 8" x 10 ½", archivally framed in a beautiful period style frame, matted and with UV glass measuring 18" x 22" with a lovely hand-colored engraved portrait of Washington by R. Ackermann, dated 1831. A typed note is on the back of the frame stating: On the verso of this document appears the following printed statement: (Head-Quarters, June 7th, 1783, The within certificate shall not avail the bearer as a discharge, until the ratification of the definitive treaty of the peace; previous to which time, and until proclamation thereof shall be made. He is to be considered as being on furlough. George Washington). The war was over but the Continental Congress had failed to raise the funds to pay the soldiers. They decided to put them on furlough which helped prevent a full scale revolt. The Government did allow the men to keep army issued weapons, uniforms and equipment but many had to sell them just to survive just as they sold their pension promises to speculators..

        Philosophical Transactions. Giving Some Account of the Present Undertakings, Studies and Labours of the Ingenious, In many Considerable Parts of the World, Volume XXVI [26], For the Years 1708 and 1709. London: Printed for H. Clements, at the Half-Moon in St. Paul's Church-Yard, 1710

      1710 FIRST EDITION OF THE FULL PHIL TRANS, NOT THE ABRIDGED. The Phil Trans is the oldest continuously published journal of an academy of science. As such, the Phil Trans established the important principles of scientific priority and peer review that have become the central foundations of scientific journals ever since. Works in every field of science are present; in addition to John Keill's paper "On the Laws of Centripedal Forces" communicating a theorem developed by Newton as well as Keill's consequential opinion on the Leibniz/Newton calculus controversy, there are important works by Derham, Leeuwenhoek, Hauksbee, and Piccolo and Kino. In wading into the Leibniz v. Newton debate on the discovery of the new calculus, Keill would level the charge that Leibniz made only cosmetic changes to Newton's calculus theorems before presenting them as his own. Though the disagreement raged, Keill greatly upped the anti with his publication of this paper. Keill wrote: "All of these laws follow from the now highly celebrated arithmetic of fluxions which Mr. Newton, without any doubt, first invented, as anyone who reads his letters published by Wallis can readily determine... yet the same arithmetic, under a different name and method of notation, was afterwards, published by Mr. Leibniz in the Acta Eruditorum." Keill claimed that Leibniz only changed the name and the mode of notation. Offended, "Leibniz complained to the secretary of the Royal Society of bad treatment and requested the interference of that body to induce Keill to disavow the intention of imputing fraud. John Keill was not made to retract his accusation; on the contrary, was authorized by Newton and the Royal Society to explain and defend his statement. This he did in a long letter, Leibniz thereupon complained that the charge was now more open than before, and appealed for justice to the Royal Society and to Newton himself. The Royal Society, thus appealed to as a judge, appointed a committee which collected and reported upon a large mass of documents -- mostly letters from and to Newton, Leibniz, Wallis, Collis, etc. This report, called the Commercium epistolicum, appeared in the year 1712 and again in 1722 and 1725, with a Recensio prefixed, and additional notes by Keill. The final conclusion, in the Commercium epistolicum was that Newton was 'the first inventor.' But this was not the point. The question was not whether Leibniz was the first inventor, but whether Leibniz had stolen the method. The committee had not formally ventured to assert their belief that Leibniz was a plagiarist. In the following sentence they insinuated that Leibniz did take or might have taken his method from that of Newton" (Cajori, A History of Mathematics, 215). Also included: First edition of eleven of Anthony van Leeuwenhoek's seminal "microscopical observations" (which took the form of letters, some quite lengthy) to the Philosophical Transactions. Leeuwenhoek's most important discoveries are contained in these celebrated letters to henry Oldenburg, the Society's secretary. Here he communicates his epoch-making experiments with the microscope, revealing to his contemporaries a previously unknown world -- the world of microorganisms. ALSO INCLUDED: First edition, first issue of Derham's report of the first accurate measurement of the speed of sound in air. The Phil Trans is the oldest continuously published journal of an academy of science. The English Natural Philosopher William Derham's experiment, produced the earliest, reasonably accurate estimate of the speed of sound by employing his 16-foot long telescope (also used when measuring the velocity of sound). "Derham utilized guns fired from various church towers and observed the flashes from distances up to 20.1 km (12.5 miles)," observed their firing by placing his telescope "atop of the tower of St. Laurence's Church, and timed the intervals with a pendulym bearing half seconds" (Suckerwar, Handbook of the Speed of Sound, 265). Derham's accuracy was affirmed by Newton. ALSO iNCLUDED: The first English edition of Prancisco Piccolo and Eusebio Francisco Kino's momentous map of California "refutating the concept of an insular California. "Accompanying the map is an extract from the Jesuit letters containing the report of Francisco María Piuccolo, "Of a Passage by Land to California, and a Description of that Country" (Sloan Rare Books). This map and its accompanying letters are "usually been considered the first printed account of California, and it certainly was the first to obtain any circulation... Piccolo provides a detailed report of the first five years of the Jesuit missions in California and a request promoting support for their continuation by their legal representative. The writings and letters of the Jesuit Father Piccolo, a contemporary of Salvatierra and Kino, describe his work as a missionary and explorer in California, where he preached to the California tribes in their native languages. He speaks highly of the possibilities of California" (Sloan Rare Books). (See also Barrett, Baja California 4303; Graff 3279; Howell 50; California 191; Mathes, Historiography of the Californias, #27). ALSO INCLUDED: 17 papers by Francis Hauksbee including "An account of an experiment touching the different densities of air from the greatest natural heat to the greatest natural cold in this climate," Hauksbee's discovery of Charles' law of gases which states that, for a given mass of gas at a constant pressure, the volume of the gas is proportional to its temperature. Charles' law is an experimental gas law describing how gases tend to expand when heated. Hauksbee was an important natural philosopher and instrument maker. Significantly, Hauksbee was Newton's lab assistant from 1678 on and is known to have personally carried out the majority of Newton's experiments. PAPERS OF NOTE IN THIS VOLUME: Keill, Jo "Jo.

        De Mensura Sortis seu; de Probabilitate Eventuum in Ludis a Casu Fortuito Pendentibus" WITH [ 6 Microscopy Letters] by Leeuwenhoek in Philosophical Transactions: Giving Some Account of the Present Undertakings, Studies, and Labours of the Ingenious in Many Considerable Parts of the World. Volume XXVII for the Years 1710, 1711, and 1712. In St. Pauls Church-yard and D. Brown without Temple-Bar: For H. Clements at the Half-Moon [1712]. pp. 213-264

      TRUE FIRST EDITION OF DE MOIVRE'S EARLIEST WORK ON PROBABILITY. Note that this is the entire original volume of the Philosophical Transactions and houses the years 1710, 1711, and 1712, not one of the later 'abridged' volumes. The Phil Trans is the oldest continuously published journal of an academy of science. As such, it established the important principles of scientific priority and peer review that have become the central foundations of scientific journals ever since. Works in every field of science are present. In 1718, Abraham de Moivre published the Doctrine of Chances, a seminal work on probability that is a slightly expanded version of this rare long memoir published here in the Philosophical Transactions in 1711. In other words, this paper is de Moivre's first important contribution to the calculus of games of chance and probability theory. Titled 'De Mensura Sortis," literally, 'On the measurement of lots,' de Moivre's treatise offers "a systematic presentation of the arithmetic principles upon which are based the solution of problems concerning the advantage of players and the size of wager which may be lain in a wide variety of games of chance" (Walker). Fifty-two pages in length, this work includes a preface, introduction, and 26 mathematical problems. In this paper, de Moivre first presented his explicit definition of classical probability: "If p is the number of chances by which a certain event may happen, and q is the number of chances by which it may fail, the happenings as much as the failings have their degree of probability; but if all the chances by which the event may happen or fail were equally easy, the probability of happening will be to the probability of failing as p and q" (de Moivre 1711). As well, de Moivre is here "the first to present the theory of recurring series; additionally, the theory of partial fractions which Cote's premature death had left unfinished was completed [here], while the rule for finding the probability of a compound event was enunciated" (Ball, A Short Account of the History of Mathematics,384). Cajori, Writing in A History of Mathematics, Cajori stated that [de Moivre's "work on the theory of probability surpasses anything done by any other mathematician except P.S. Laplace" (Cajori, A History of Mathematics, 230). "Although de Moivre was born in France, he emigrated to England when he was very young due to religious persecution. He spent the rest of his life and career in England" (Gorroochurn, Classic Problems of Probability, Problem 9). In Britain, de Moivre worked with Halley, Leibniz, and Newton (with whom he became close friends). He was named a member of the Royal Society of London in 1697. ALSO INCLUDED: Six of Anthony van Leeuwenhoek's "microscopical observations" (which took the form of letters, some quite lengthy) to the Philosophical Transactions. Leeuwenhoek's most important discoveries are contained in these celebrated letters to henry Oldenburg, the Society's secretary. Here he communicates his epoch-making experiments with the microscope, revealing to his contemporaries a previously unknown world -- the world of microorganisms.

        Voyages et Avantures de Jaques Massé

      Bordeaux: 1710": Rouen, 1710. Duodecimo, woodcut device on title; a fine copy in 19th-century grained morocco, gilt gauffred edges. First edition (Rosenberg edition &#39;A&#39;) of this important imaginary voyage to Australia: a &#39;landmark&#39; in the development of the French voyage novel (Atkinson). Friederich remarks that the importance of mining and irrigation to the Australians makes it the only work of its type &#39;to foreshadow what has actually come to pass in modern Australia&#39;. Tyssot de Patot was a well-known Huguenot free-thinker, whose writings were a continual source of scandal: Voltaire thought that he had &#39;carried the torch of discord into their homeland&#39;. In the novel Massé shipwrecks on the Southern continent at &#39;44 South latitude, almost at the point where Kerguelen Island will be found to be on modern maps&#39; (Atkinson). Massé and his friend Moret travel inland where they settle in a plentiful and peaceful utopia where they become so enamoured of their Australian hosts that they abjure their faith and their European heritage; it is only when Moret is betrayed by his liaison with a treacherous queen that they reluctantly flee, escaping rather fortuitously by a subterranean river which deposits them close by the original settlement. They remain besieged in the camp for another twelve years before they are finally picked up by a Portuguese ship. &#39;There is nothing fantastic, unbelievable or overdrawn in the descriptions of the Austral continent&hellip; the realistic presentation of the story, in particular the detailed account of the adventurer&#39;s camp in the Austral continent, the building of a raft, and the descriptions of plants and trees, may be compared favourably to similar passages in the Robinson Crusoe of later date&hellip;&#39; (Atkinson). This is a rare and fascinating imaginary voyage which appeared in several languages with the hero&#39;s name changing to Massey, Massens, Marton and Martons. The question of editions has been thoroughly investigated by Aubrey Rosenberg (Tyssot de Patot and his work 1655-1738, The Hague, 1972), in an attempt to clarify the four editions purporting to be published in 1710 (three by the same publisher). He argues that this edition, with an armillary sphere device on the title with its base pointing to the left, was probably published between 1714 and 1717, and is the true first edition of the work. This fine copy has a distinguished provenance: from the British Museum, with the stamp on verso of title and the 1831 duplicate release stamp; also the crowned cipher "C.G." on spine.

        VOYAGES ET AVANTURES DE JAQUES MASSE

      A Bourdeaux (ie. The Hague):: James L&#39;Aveugle,, 1710 [ie. 1714].. First Edition. 12mo, pp. viii, 508. Bound in contemporary calf (neatly rebacked in antique style), little rubbed, some minor foxing soiling, a very good tight copy. Rosenberg "A" Gove, 217-219; Cioranescu 62587; Barbier IV, 1103; Atkinson, &#39;The Extraordinary Voyage in French Literature&#39;, p. 70; Rosenberg, pp. 84-5. The genuine first edition, falsely dated. An important imaginary journey to Australia, called a "landmark" by Atkinson. Based on a variety of real voyages the descriptions are believable and realistic. The author offers a detailed account of making a camp, building a raft. While the book did not range much beyond the confines of the traditional Utopias of the times, it did, however, include "living fossils," giant birds and strange flora that survived from prehistoric eras, arguably making it one of the first modern Lost World novels. After being shipwrecked on the continent, the narrator and a friend pressed on and developed a farm in a "a plentiful, fruitful country" until forced to flee by a treacherous woman.& Tyssot de Patot (1655-1727) was a Huguenot who lived most of his life in Holland where he pursued a career as professor of Mathematics at the Athenaeum Illustre in Deventer, the capital of the province of Overijssel.
