GRANDI Guido (1671-1742)
FRANCESCO BINDI, 1710. Legatura coeva in piena pelle avana con, ai piatti, duplice filetto con angolari in oro; dorso a cinque nervi rilevati con titolo a secco, autore in oro su tassello rosso, fregi in oro agli altri scomparti; tagli spruzzati. AL contropiatto anteriore, ex-libris nobiliare alle armi di John Crichton Stuart, secondo marche di Bute, Luton Library (1793-1848). XX pagine numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo e stemma mediceo; seguono 140 pagine numerate; testo in latino; all'interno, numerosi diagrammi incisi. Seconda edizione, la prima sempre a Pisa nel 1703. Secondo lo studioso Riccardi, questa seconda edizione è da ritenersi più corretta e superiore della prima. Affrontando il tema della quadratura del cerchio e dell'iperbole scoprì il medesimo paradosso scoperto da Leibnitz, ossia che la somma parziale di una serie a segni alterni di numeri può non convergere (cosiddetta serie di Grandi). Nel 1709 entrò a far parte della prestigiosa Royal Society. Venne nominato matematico alla corte del granducato di Toscana e successivamente nominato professore di matematica all'Università di Pisa. Molto interessante la sua collaborazione con Tommaso Buonaventuri all'edizione fiorentina delle Opere di Gaileo Galilei pubblicate nel 1718; studiò, inoltre, la curva algebrica da lui chiamata "rodonea" per la forma che ricorda il rosone delle chiese romaniche e gotiche. Guido Grandi ebbe anche il merito di essere stato il primo a usare e a diffondere in Italia la nuova analisi degli infiniti. In proposito, pubblicò il testo De infinitis infinitorum. nella quale appl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pierre Bayle
C Harper et al. Good: all four bindings intact albeit with scuffs, chips and some material loss: light and intermittent foxing: paper discoloration due to age. Complete set of M'sieur Bayle's exploration of people and ideas of his time. Bayle wrote these in response to a previous historical dictionary which he found full of errors. In writing his own dictionary of History, Bayle influenced many as his approach was both logical and a little subversive due to his Huguenot leanings. In very good condition, all four volumes have their covers intact and attached. There is some loss of material on each and the inside front and first page or so are discolored. Occasional pencil marks. Some foxing. All four have matching title pages with vignette of Athena instructing little cherubs. Bookplate inside front of James Irvine, Esq of KingCausie which is in Scotland. Very Good Condition: Folio: Four Volumes: Leather binding in very good condition with some loss of materials. Please see photos: banded and ridged spine with evidence of gilt lettering on each but only showing/remaining on two. Edge wear, corner bending chipping and scuffing: embossed fronts of black rectangle and feathers in the corners: "Bayle's Dictionary: An Historical and Critical Dictionary translated into English with many additions and corrections, made by the Author himself, that are not in the French editions": Pierre Bayle: London: Printed for C.

Published in only seven volumes in thirty-four years between 1710 and 1744, the Miscellanea Berolinensia ad incrementum scientiarum was the primary journal of the Royal Prussian Society of Sciences, founded on 11 July 1700, in Berlin by the Elector and Margrave of Brandenburg, Friedrich III. One day later, Leibniz was appointed as the first president of the Society. In a 'Pro Memoria' he wrote for Friedrich III, in 1702, Leibniz promised an annual volume of Miscellanea.

Berlin, Papen, 1710. 4to. Very nice contemporary full calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. All edges of boards gilt. A bit of wear to extremities, corners bumped, and capitals professionally restored. Occasional light brownspotting, and printing weak on some leaves (including the text for the Leibnitz-paper). Overall in very nice condition. Pp. 317-19 + folded engraved plate (bound with the plates at the back of the volume - Fig. 73 - in excellent condition). [Entire volume: (22), 394 pp, 1 blank + 31 folded, engraved plates [+ Ruysch: (4), 32, (2) + 2 engraved plates + 18 pp.] ]. The frontispiece is not present. Scarce first edition of this milestone in computing history, namely Leibnitz' description of his groundbreaking calculating machine, including his stepped-drum gear, which constitutes one of the greatest advances in the early history of computing. This paper became extremely influential in the development of the calculating machine, and the stepped-drum that Leibnitz here presents constituted "the greatest advance in calculating-machine technology until 1875." (Hook & Norman). "(1673-74): Leibnitz creates a drawing of his calculating machine mechanism. Using stepped drum, this calculator mechanizes multiplication as well as addition by performing repetitive additions. In 1674 Leibnitz hires a Parisian clockmaker to build one copy of his machine. This copy is eventually lost until 1879, when it is found in an attic at Göttingen University. However, because of descriptions published from 1710 onward, is well-enough known to have great influence. The step … [Click Below for Full Description]

1710. Calidor, the speaker is intrigued by Mira, a female who is in mourning as her suiter Candor has recently been killed by Calidor. She is also mourning the absence of her friend Sacer, whom has recently been imprisoned by Calidor. Calidor compares himself favourably to Candor and says that despite his death 'There yet Ramins a Lover who for You/ Shall all that's in his power ever do.' He promises to leave Amalea Calidor as he caused her bereavement, 'That since of Candor I Did you bereave,/ Amalea Calidor to you thou'd Leave'. Calidor describes his life in court, and his service to Serena, of Alba, likely to be Queen Anne. He promises that if Mira were to choose him, he would leave his active service. It has been suggested that Calidor could be associated with a range of eighteenth century courtiers, one of whom being Thomas, first Earl of Wharton. The author of this work is unknown. It has been attributed to Matthew Prior and Elkanah Settle. However, most recent scholars refute the claims that this is the work of Prior and feel that Settle is also an unlikely candidate.

FUCHS, Leonhart.
Bibliotheca Osleriana 2688; Durling 1710; USTC 602528 (4 copies). Very rare first edition of Fuchs's "Four books on some difficult questions", a heavily revised version of his Apologiae tres ("Three apologies") from 1538. It is part of a debate on the preferences for ancient Greek and Latin sources on one side versus Arabic sources on the other side; refuting the views of Guillaume Dupuis, Sébastien de Monteux and Jérémie de Dryvere. Fuchs had already discussed this issue in his 1535 Paradoxa medicinae, where he had favoured the classical Greek medical sources and criticized the Arabic physicians and their recent European adherents.Browned and foxed throughout and with a few lines, words headings and paragraphs crossed out, but still in good condition.

En Valladolid, en la imprenta de la Viuda de Joseph de Rueda, 1710. in-12. 152pp. Plein vélin souple du temps, titre manuscrit au dos, traces de liens. Célèbre roman de chevalerie initialement paru en 1513 et dont les éditions anciennes sont toutes introuvables et précieuses. Cette adaptation espagnole du roman provençal de Jaufré, elle-même inspirée d'une version française donnée par Philippe Camus, connut un grand succès en Espagne tout au long du 16e siècle. La rareté des éditions anciennes est telle que même la riche bibliothèque de Salvá ne possédait pas d'édition antérieure à celle-ci, également très rare. Cette édition de colportage porte sur le titre une vignette gravée sur bois représentant un chevalier en armure brandissant une lance, identique à celle qui figure notamment sur les premières éditions valenciennes de Don Quichotte de 1606 et 1616. Petite tache d'encre ancienne sur le titre. Quelques rousseurs. Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin souple d'origine. Palau, 326183 (qui ne cite que l'exemplaire de la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid et celui vendu 100 pesetas par Vindel en 1929).

DURELL, Philip
London,: S. Harding, 1710. London,: S. Harding,, 1710. 1740. Engraved map with contemporary full-wash colour. Philip Durrell (1707-1766) was a British naval officer. He rose to the rank of Vice Admiral over a stellar career, participating in important naval victories including the Siege of Louisbourg in 1745, when a British fleet captured the city in the War of the Austrian Succession. This map was drawn when he was still a Lieutenant, serving under Admiral Vernon during his command of Jamaica during the War. The capture of Porto Bello occurred in the early stages of the War of Jenkin's Ear, which turned into the War of the Austrian Succession. The War of Jenkin's Ear began as the British fought the Spanish for the right to continue with slave contracts in Spanish America, developing into the War of the Austrian Succession as European powers ostensibly challenged Maria Theresa's claim to the Hapsburg throne, but in reality attempted to subsume Austrian possessions in Europe. Porto Bello was an important stronghold in the Caribbean, and a point of departure for Spanish bullion ships. Admiral Vernon took part in a failed attempt to stop a Spanish treasure fleet sailing from Porto Bello in 1727, and subsequently claimed that he could take the port with just six vessels. He was given the Jamaica command, and launched an expedition to Porto Bello in 1739, occupying the town for three weeks and rendering the key buildings unusable, destroying it as a viable port for Spanish ships. The British accomplished the occupation with only three lives lost. The resounding success of Por … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed by J.

Xeres tells us that he was from a family of Spanish Jewish origin living in North African Saphia. He opens his book by addressing John, Archbishop of York (John Sharp, 1643-1714) and thanks him for sponsoring Xeres' own conversion. There is also a testimonial signed by seven British merchants who trade in "Barbary" telling the reader that the author (who is here called Jonah Ben Jacob Xeres) was employed by them in their establishment in North AFrica. ...persuaded by them at the age of about 25 that Jesus was indeed the promised Messiah. Xeeres then proceeded to England, they say, where he adopted Christianity with the aid of the learned Reverend Dr. Allix, who himself then tetifies briefly that Xeres is learned not only in the Old Testament, but also in the Jewish Talmud. The degree of the author's erudition is important because Jewish Converst to Christianity were commonly dismissed as being deficient in learning. Some rubbing of edges, title page with small nicks at lower edge Dedication leaf with inscription of William Worsley dated 1753.

Un ensemble d'une très grande rareté. La biblia Pentapla est la toute première version d'une Bible "¿cuménique" et est l'Oeuvre de Glüsing, théologien protestant de la province d'Altona, près de Hamburg en Allemagne. La présence de fortes communautés Ménnonite, Spinoziste et juive dans cette région incita très certainement ce théologien à publier une Bible qui puisse être utilisée par tous, en langue Allemande et Flamande. Cette aventure commença avec le Nouveau Testament en 1710, suivi de l'Ancien en deux tomes, en 1711 et 1712. L'impression fut confiée à Hermann Heinrich HOLLE, à Gottorf. La Pentapla ici présentée est complète de ses trois volumes, dans une reliure d'attente de l'époque. Tome I & II : Ancien Testament (Des Alten Testament). Texte sur 5 colonnes : Traduction de l'Eglise Catholique Romaine par Caspar ULENBERG. Traduction de l'Eglise Evangélique Luthérienne par Martin LUTHER. Traduction de l'Eglise Evangélique Réformée par Johann PISCATOR. Traduction hébraïque vers l'Allemand par Joseph ATHIAE. Traduction Hollandaise. Page de titre en Noir et Rouge pour le tome I.

SENEX, John (1678-1740)
London, 1710. Engraved map on two sheets joined, hand-coloured in outline. Expert repairs to the side margins, with minor losses to the neat line and gradients in expert facsimile. An early and important large-scale English map of North America.This decorative map provided the English speaking world with a highly detailed depiction of North America and one of the earliest large-scale English maps of the region. The area covered includes the Hudson's Bay and Arctic regions, as well as the explored portions of the American west. Dedicated to Anthony Hammond, Commissioner in Her Majesty's Navy (whose arms appear on the map below the decorative cartouche), the map incorporates data from Guillaume De L'Isle's landmark mapping of the region (his 'Carte du Mexique et de la Floride' in particular). Senex, however, also made significant improvements to the earlier maps, particularly in his depictions of the Great Lakes region as well as the lower Mississippi delta: the result is probably the most accurate English depiction of its time. There is also much valuable textual information given on the map, including Native American place names, and notes on the discovery of many remote areas, most notably Lahontan's mythical Long River.The present example is an intermediate state between Stevens & Tree A and B; i.e. without John Maxwell's imprint but before the addition of the Bowles imprint.Degrees of Latitude pp.110-113; Stevens & Tree, "Comparative Cartography" 61a, in Tooley, The Mapping of America ; Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast 495; Wheat, Mapping the Transmissi … [Click Below for Full Description]

An unidentified heraldic bookplate on front pastedown of each volume. Signature of "John Fletcher" (no relation - that I know of!) on front fly of vol.1. Very fine condition.The heraldic bookplate, which has so far defied identification, contains a lozenge-shaped shield, denoting a lady, and the motto "Spectamur Agendo", which we take to be a mistake on the part of the engraver for "Spectemur Agendo". This, together with various other similarities, and the supporters, two lions embattled, seems to indicate a member of the family of Boyle, earls of Shannon.

Berlin: Johann Christian Papen, 1710. First edition, rare, of this milestone in computer history, Leibniz's description of his famous calculating machine, the first stepped-drum calculator, and the first machine that could perform multiplication and division. "Leibniz studied Morland's and Pascal's various designs and set himself the task of constructing a more perfect and efficient machine. To begin with, he improved Pascal's device by adding a stepped-cylinder to represent the digits 1 through 9 ... In 1694, Leibniz built his calculating machine, which was far superior to Pascal's and was the first general purpose calculating device able to meet the major needs of mathematicians and bookkeepers" (Rosenberg, The Computer Prophets, p 48). "[He] invented a device now known as the Leibniz wheel and still in use in some machines . The mechanism enabled him to build a machine which surpassed Pascal's in that it could do not only addition and subtraction fully automatically but also multiplication and division. Leibniz's device enabled his machine to perform the operation of multiplication automatically by repeated additions. His idea was apparently re-invented in 1820 by Charles Xavier de Colmar" (Goldstine, The Computer from Pascal to Neumann, p. 7). Although Leibniz demonstrated his machine before the Royal Society and elsewhere, no description of it appeared in print until in the present form. It is contained in the first volume of the journal of the Berlin Academy of Science, which Leibniz founded.

The Jewish version of the Old Testament is by Josef Witzenhausen rather than Athias--see the British Museum Catalog the Jewish Encyclopedia article on Athias. Darlow Moule 4227 3434This edition of the whole Bible embodies four principal German versions viz. those of Ulenberg Catholic Luther Piscator Reformed and Athias-Reitz.3434 Johann Otto Glsing the editor and compiler of the Biblia Pentalpa was also the editor of Jakob Bhmes works and the founder of the ascetic Angelbrothers society. 3434Glsing was a key part of a group of separatists and spiritualists who gathered in Altona a hotbed of Spinozists Mennonites radical Pietists and Jews in the early years of the eighteenth century. The Biblia Pentapla represented for Glsing an entirely new direction for the German Bible. Because in Glsings words different German translators.have different dialects the Biblia Pentapla would provide all Germans with access to all the all the translations. The side-by-side placement of representative biblical texts was to serve then both as an ecumenical bridge between readers giving them a common language of religions and a means to unify a Bible divide by centuries of confessional strife. On the one hand the Biblia Pentapla--like the venerable scholarly tradition of the polyglot Bible--used techniques of accumulation to weave a web fine enough to capture Gods Word.

"[He] invented a device now known as the Leibniz wheel and still in use in some machines . The mechanism enabled him to build a machine which surpassed Pascal’s in that it could do not only addition and subtraction fully automatically but also multiplication and division. Leibniz’s device enabled his machine to perform the operation of multiplication automatically by repeated additions. His idea was apparently re-invented in 1820 by Charles Xavier de Colmar" (Goldstine, The Computer from Pascal to Neumann, p. 7). Although Leibniz demonstrated his machine before the Royal Society and elsewhere, no description of it appeared in print until in the present form.

ont> Printed and Sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster : London, 1710 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A very scarce first edition of this unusual poem, penned by an unknown eighteenth century poet. The work is a political allegory, exploring the speaker Calidor's attempts to woo Mira. Calidor, the speaker is intrigued by Mira, a female who is in mourning as her suiter Candor has recently been killed by Calidor. She is also mourning the absence of her friend Sacer, whom has recently been imprisoned by Calidor. Calidor compares himself favourably to Candor and says that despite his death 'There yet Ramins a Lover who for You/ Shall all that's in his power ever do. ' He promises to leave Amalea Calidor as he caused her bereavement, 'That since of Candor I Did you bereave,/ Amalea Calidor to you thou'd Leave'. Calidor describes his life in court, and his service to Serena, of Alba, likely to be Queen Anne. He promises that if Mira were to choose him, he would leave his active service. It has been suggested that Calidor could be associated with a range of eighteenth century courtiers, one of whom being Thomas, first Earl of Wharton. The author of this work is unknown. It has been attributed to Matthew Prior and Elkanah Settle. However, most recent scholars refute the claims that this is the work of Prior and feel that Settle is also an unlikely candidate. Foxon C384. An intriguing and uncommon poem. Collated, complete. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper boards. Externally, smart with patches of rubbing to the paper covered boards.
