      Zürich, 1712/13, - 116x153 cm (ganze Karte), Kupferstichkarte der Schweiz aus 4 Teilen auf Leinwand aufgezogen, Massstab ca. 1:230?000, weiterer Titel am oberen Rand: "Helvetiae pagi seu cantones. XIII Ohrt der Eidgenossschaft.", Kartenzeichnung reicht nur bis zur Landesgrenze, Titelkartusche und Kartenrand sind reich mit figürlichen Szenen, Darstellungen von naturhistorischen Merkwürdigkeiten, sowie Landschafts- und Gebirgsdarstellungen von der Hand Johann Melchior Füsslis verziert, gestochen von Johann Heinrich Huber und Emmanuel Schalch, der rechter Hälfte etwas gedunkelt sonst guter Zustand, auf Leinwand aufgezogen, sehr schönes Exemplar. (Gerolt). Originalausgabe der Scheuchzerkarte in selten gutem Zustand und teilskoloriert. Der Zürcher Stadtarzt Johann Jakob Scheuchzer war einer der grossen Universalgelehrten der Schweiz und ?ohne Zweifel der berühmteste schweizerische Naturforscher, Mediziner, Historiker und vielseitigstes Genie des 18. Jahrhunderts? (Dürst). Scheuchzer sammelte unermüdlich Material für seine ?Naturgeschichte des Schweizerlandes? und bereiste die Alpen. Er erstellte dabei auch kleine Regionalkarten, welche er nach 18-jähriger Arbeit zu einer grossen Gesamtkarte der Schweiz zusammenstellte. ,Diese grosse Schweizer Karte beruht auf der Gygerschen von 1657 und auf der grossen vierblätterigen von Jaillot. Sie stellt das kartographische Hauptwerk des 18. Jahrhunderts dar und diente vielfach als Grundlage für weitere Karten.? (Blumer) Der Naturforscher Scheuchzer bemühte sich um eine neue, wissenschaftliche Erforschung der Natur, sein grosses Kartenwerk stand aber noch in einer älteren Tradition. ,Die Scheuchzerkarte ist die letzte kartographische Schöpfung grossen Massstabes, die letzte grosse Übersichtskarte der Schweiz der alten Kartenperiode.? (Blumer). Typisch für die Karten der Zeit sind die reichen Kartenrandillustrationen, welche bei Scheuchzer v.a. auf die ,Schweizer Naturwunder? eingehen und mit Kommentaren und Legenden versehen sind. Sie stammen von Johann Melchior Füssli (1677-1736), dem wichtigsten Illustrator von Scheuchzers Werken. Schon die Titelkartusche in der linken oberen Ecke zeigt die allegorischen Darstellungen der wichtigsten Flüsse Rhein, Rhone etc., hier findet sich auch die Jahrzahl 1712 (die Karte erschien erst 1713 im Druck), die weiteren Illustrationen: Glarner Ziegermühle mit Molkereigeräten, Teufelsbrücke in der Schöllenen, Calandari-See im Schams, Torfstechen bei Rüschikon, Rheinfall, Kristalle und Versteinerungen, Alter Gemmiweg auf Walliser Seite, Regenbogen am Wasserfall, Rhone-Gletscher, Herstellung von Lavezstein-Gefässen, Drachenstein von Luzern, Mond-Regenbogen am Vierwaldstättersee, niedergehende Grundlawine, eine Rüfi, Kugelblitz im Gebirge und das Steilerhorn im Schams (mit der ersten Höhenangabe in einer Schweizerkarte: das Steilerhorn (GR) wird mit 12?000 Fuss, ca. 3600m, angegeben, in Wirklichkeit: 2980m). Fast alle Darstellungen basieren auf älteren Radierungen von Füssli oder von andern Künstlern wie Johann Brandenberger, Johannes Meyer d.J. u.a. und wurden nicht speziell für die Karte geschaffen. Neben Illustrationen präsentiert Scheuchzer aber auch ein Verzeichnis der römischen Ortsnamen und ihrer modernen Entsprechungen, die Zeichenerklärungen und den Kartenmassstab (die Orte werden, wie damals üblich, nach Religionszugehörigkeit unterschieden) und schlussendlich die lateinische Anmerkung (rechte Seite Mitte) des Autors zu seinem Werk, welches aus eigener Anschauung auf seinen Alpenreisen korrigiert und erweitert wurde, jedoch an vielen Stellen noch verbessert werden könnte. Die Karte wurde 1715 von Peter Schenk und ca. 1720 von Covens & Mortier in Amsterdam nachgezeichnet . Neuherausgabe durch J. Hofmeister 1765.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage. Blumer, Bibliogr. d. Gesamtkarten d. Schw., 76ff.; Dürst, Begleitbd. zur Faksimileausgabe (1971). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Commercium epistolicum D. Johannis Collins: et aliorum de analysi promota: jussu Societatis Regiae in lucem editum.

      London: Pearson, 1712. First edition, first issue, and a fine copy in a contemporary binding, of the fundamental text documenting the dispute between Newton and Leibniz over priority for the invention of calculus, the most infamous dispute in the history of science. This is the official report of the committee appointed by the Royal Society into the matter; supposedly impartial, it is now known to have been written mostly by Newton himself. The documents printed in this volume, by Isaac Barrow, John Collins, James Gregory, John Wallis, John Keill, Henry Oldenburg and René-François de Sluse, as well as Leibniz and Newton themselves, are almost all published here for the first time  "Although, in Hall's words, 'The documents are fairly and accurately quoted', the Commercium remains as partial a document as ever a learned society is likely to issue. It is, of course, manifest that a committee constituted by disciples of Newton would be most unlikely to scrutinize at all critically evidence relating to the Society's President, even if they had been given sufficient time to do so. In any case, the material presented to them had been selected and assembled by one of the interested parties, Newton himself. Nor had the other interested party, Leibniz, been offered any opportunity to present his own evidence or to answer the charges brought against him. There is, in addition, an even deeper degree of duplicity. Much of the report, documents would later show, had been drafted by Newton himself. His final draft is at present in private hands [Macclesfield, now at Cambridge]. Hall has shown, however, that virtually all the substantive parts of the published report are taken directly from Newton's draft, including such supposedly impartial judgements as 'the Differential Method [of Leibniz] is one and the same with the Method of Fluxions [of Newton],' and 'we reckon Mr Newton the first Inventor' ... The book was never offered for sale, instead being issued free to interested parties, with twenty-five copies sent to The Hague for distribution on the Continent" (Gjertsen, pp. 128-9). "Only a few copies were printed for presentation and the work became so rare shortly after publication that [Joseph] Raphson complained in 1715 [when he was preparing his History of Fluxions] that it 'was not to be met with among booksellers'" (Babson). The "editio princeps of the Commercium is a book not easily found in libraries outside of London, Cambridge and Oxford" (Whiteside, p. 485). The Macclesfield copy is the only copy in a contemporary binding to have appeared at auction in the last 25 years (offered by a prominent New York dealer in 2006 for $33,500). The development of the Newtonian and Leibnizian versions of the calculus, and the ensuing priority dispute, have been the subject of several scholarly studies. Newton's first substantial tract on the subject, De analysi per aequationes numero terminorum infinitas, was composed in 1669 although it reflected work from two years earlier. While principally concerned with infinite series, at the conclusion of the paper Newton "revealed at the same time details of his method of fluxions. The proof [of Rule 1] required the use of 'infinitely small' areas (later to be called 'moments'). It was, Boyer has noted, 'the first time in the history of mathematics that an area was found through the inverse of what we call differentiation', and thus made Newton 'the effective inventor of the calculus'" (Gjertsen, p. 151). Three years later, on 10 December 1672, Newton revealed in a letter to Collins that he possessed a general method of 'drawing tangents to all curved lines'. De analysi remained unpublished until the following century, but John Collins made copies, one of which was seen by Leibniz when he visited London in October 1676. In the same year, two letters, the Epistolae prior and posterior, were sent to Leibniz to acquaint him with Newton's mathematical development. These contained details of Newton's work on infinite series, but only summary statements of his work on fluxions, and those concealed in anagrams. According to Hofmann (pp. 187-201), Leibniz developed the basic ideas of his differential calculus in the autumn of 1675, although he published only in 1684, in the Acta Eruditorum. Newton's first published use of fluxional ideas was in Section I of Book I of Principia (1687), which contained his method of 'first and last ratios', but the first printed account of fluxions proper appeared in 1693 in the Latin edition of John Wallis's Algebra (vol. II of his Opera) - Wallis had requested details of the Epistola posterior from Newton, who had responded with a detailed account of his fluxional methods and which Wallis then printed. "After the middle 1690s, when both Newton and Leibniz retired from active investigation of the mathematical unknown, each of them already deeply convinced that he it was who had 'first invented' the mode and basic technique of the new analysis, only the time and place of the coming confrontation was any longer in doubt" (Whiteside, p. 470). The spark that ignited the dispute was the publication by Nicolas Fatio de Duillier in 1699 of his Lineae brevissimi descensus investigatio geometrica duplex, in which he set out his own claim to independent discovery of the infinitesimal calculus, and added that he was 'compelled by the very evidence of the facts' to acknowledge Newton as 'first inventor, and the oldest one by several years' despite Leibniz's show of 'everywhere attributing the invention of this calculus to himself'. Leibniz must have been furious to read Fatio's strong hint that he, the 'second inventor', might have 'borrowed' something of his own differential calculus from Newton's writings, but he did not speak out publicly until five years later, when he came to review Newton's Opticks (1704), and in particular its appendix Tractatus de Quadratura Curvarum, which had been composed in 1691 but not previously published. In his anonymous review of this fluxions tract in the Acta Eruditorum in January 1705 he implied that Newton had done no more than transmute Leibniz's prior discovery of calculus: just as Honoré Fabry more than thirty years before had replaced Bonaventura Cavalieri's 'indivisibles of continua' by equivalent continuously generated 'flowing motions', so now 'in place of Leibnizian differences Mr Newton employs fluxions, and has ever employed them'. Newton seems not to have seen Leibniz's review when it appeared, but in 1708 the Scottish Newtonian John Keill added to a letter to his friend Edmond Halley a short paragraph where he stated: 'All these things follow from the nowadays very celebrated arithmetic of fluxions, whose first inventor was beyond all doubt Mr Newton, as will readily be agreed by anyone who reads the letters published by Dr Wallis; the same arithmetic was, however, afterwards published with changes in name and notation by Mr Leibniz in the Acta Eruditorum'. Leibniz's earlier simile was thus neatly twisted to make Leibniz a Fabry to Newton's Cavalieri. The issue of the Philosophical Transactions in which Keill's letter was published did not appear until 1709, and Leibniz did not read it until February 1711. He then immediately wrote to Hans Sloane, secretary of the Royal Society, complaining of Keill's renewal of Fatio's 'most silly accusation' of his having published Newton's 'calculus of fluxions' in changed form and notation, a charge whose falsity 'no one knew better than Newton himself' but which might even so 'be often repeated by the wicked or the foolhardy', and stating that he had not even heard the name of fluxions before the account of them published by Wallis in his Opera, and demanding that Keill retract his accusation. Leibniz's formal complaint put Newton, as both the President of the Royal Society and (according to Keill) the plagiarized party, in a difficult position, and at first Newton took no action. However, on 3 April Keill sent Newton a copy of the anonymous Acta review of his Opticks, and what Newton saw there was enough to persuade him to support Keill, behind the scenes, in proving his 'libel' of Leibniz true. Two days later, when Keill drew the attention of the assembled Royal Society to the 'unfair Account given of Sir Isaac Newton's Discourse of Quadratures' given in the Acta in 1705, the minutes of the meeting record that he was supported by 'the President [who] gave a short account of that matter, with ye particular time of his first mentioning or discovering his Invention, referring to some Letters published by Dr Wallis'. At the Society's next meeting a week later, Newton was in addition 'pleased to mention his Letters many years ago to Mr Collins about his method of treating Curves' and Keill was asked to 'draw up a Paper to assert the President's right in this matter'. Keill's response leaned heavily on the letter to Collins of December 1672, the two Epistolae of 1676, and De analysi, 'just now published by Mr Jones'. It was posted about May 1711, but Leibniz seems not to have read it until December. In his reply, Leibniz refused to defend himself against a man with 'too little experience of what had been done in times past' and 'lacking a mandate to act from the person concerned' in putting his case; it was read to the Society on 31 January 1711/12. Newton's response came on 6 March, when "'Upon account of Mr Leibnitz's Letter to Dr Sloane concerning the Dispute ... between him and Mr Keill, a Committee was appointed by the Society to inspect the Letters and Papers relating thereto'. To those -- 'Dr [John] Arbuthnot, Mr [Abraham] Hill, Dr Halley, Mr [William] Jones, Mr [John] Machin, and Mr [William] Burnet'-- originally appointed to serve on it, Francis Robartes was added on 20 March, the Prussian ambassador Bonet was coopted the next week evidently to give a semblance of 'Germanic' balance to the committee, and on 17 April [Abraham] de Moivre, Francis Aston and Brook Taylor (the last had been elected F.R.S. but a fortnight before) were also taken on to its strength. Just a week later the committee delivered its report, predictably vindicating Newton's rights as 'first Inventor', and finding that 'Mr Keill in asserting the same has been noways injurious to Mr Leibnitz in which judgement the full gathered Society 'agreed nemine contradicente'" (Whiteside, pp. 480-1). We now know that the committee was really just a passive mouthpiece for the riposte Newton as President could not himself be seen openly to deliver. He assembled pertinent 'Extracts of Letters found among the papers of Mr John Collins', together with extracts from other 'Letters in ye hand of Mr Leibnitz which he found in the Royal Society's Letter Books". In the report which the committee delivered seven weeks later, on 24 April, these extracts were accepted as 'genuine and authentic', and the recommendation was made that they should be 'made publick' together with 'what is Extant to the same purpose in Dr Wallis's 3d Volume [of his Opera]'. The four itemised conclusions from this evidence to which the reporting committee then set its name were drafted by Newton without any essential help from any of its members. The Society unanimously accepted its findings, ordering that these, along with 'the whole Matter, from the Beginning, with the Extracts of all the Letters relating thereto, and Mr Keill's and Mr Leibnitz's Letters', be 'published with all convenient speed'.  Even though Halley, Jones and Machin were, at the same meeting, 'desired to take care of the said Impression (which they promised),' and Jones was additionally ordered to 'make an Estimate of the Charges', it was in fact Newton who, virtually single-handedly, edited and annotated the volume of letters which was published less than a year later as the present work.   "The overwhelming bulk of the volume consisted of letters and papers and extracts chronologically arranged, leading up to the judgment of the committee, which it printed in full in its original English. For those who might have missed Jones's volume [Analysis per quantitatum series, fluxiones, ac differentias, 1711], it reprinted "De analysi," with which it effectively began, together with the correspondence that established the date of that treatise. Footnotes of the most partisan kind, pointing out the fluxional method in Newton's papers and letters, and denigrating the letters of Leibniz, provided a running commentary. The footnotes painted Leibniz as a compulsive plagiarist. The content of his first letter in the volume turned out (if one accepts the note) to have been stolen from Pascal. His third contained another theft, a series for the quadrature of the circle. Collins had communicated similar series discovered by Newton and Gregory three and four years earlier, an indignant footnote explained. Leibniz had been in England before he wrote the letter in question, 'and did not communicate series of this sort, nor did he begin to communicate them with his friends before he had received them from Oldenburg, as will soon appear; nor did he communicate anything except what he received.' With Leibniz's letter of 21 June 1677, his response to the Epistola posterior in which he expounded his differential method for the first time in the correspondence, a similar note inevitably appeared. The climax of Commercium epistolicttm, this note pointed out that Leibniz did not send his method before he had read 'what Newton had written of this method in two letters and also other papers of Newton when he returned home through London toward the end of 1676. The passion Newton invested in the argument as he took his revenge burst out in mathematical notes where one scarcely expects to find it. Leibniz's letter of 12 July 1677 remarked that he had found some of Newton's series among old papers of his own that he had forgotten. Newton's indignation erupted. Leibniz had received the series two years earlier, asked for the method behind them, received it from Oldenburg, had trouble understanding it, and now found he had discovered it earlier himself! So it had been with other series. 'Thus the method which earlier he wanted, asked for, received, and understood with difficulty, he discovered forsooth either first or at least by his own effort'. Borne forward by his own passion, Newton did not hesitate even to assert that he had sent the principle propositions of the Principia to the Royal Society in 1683. Since it was part of his argument that he used the fluxional method to work out the Principia's propositions, which he later set over into synthetic demonstrations for publication, 1683 placed a major exercise of his method before Leibniz's publication of the calculus" (Westfall, pp. 727-8). Publication of the Commercium did not, of course, bring an end to the dispute. Leibniz responded with the Charta Volans, an anonymous pamphlet deprecating the Commercium and accusing Newton and his disciples of stealing the differential calculus of Leibniz, and then committing gross errors in their applications of it. In the final years of his life Leibniz began a documentary statement of his own mathematical evolution, Historia et Origo Calculi Differentialis, but this remained unfinished and unpublished until the nineteenth century. The supporters of Newton and Leibniz continued to exchange accusations even after Leibniz's death in 1716. "The Commercium Epistolicum in the eyes of the Leibnizians marked the British as enemies of truth and progressive mathematics. Everything coming from their pens must be suspect. The decade after 1712 was thus that of their harshest opposition to all Newtonian influence, causing Newton himself considerable trouble and distress" (Hall, Newton, p. 269). The present copy of the Commercium is Gray 237, state A with the catchword on p. 34 'nitu', and the first line on p. 35 ending 'in infini', rather than 'rei' and 'exhibit in', respectively, in the corrected state B. A second edition appeared in 1722, reprinted in 1725. The work was included in Horsley's Opera (1779-85). A French translation, edited by Biot and Lefort, was published in 1856.

        Provincia Bononiensis cvm Confiniis

      Milano 1712 - Carta geografica tratta dalla "Chorographica Descriptio Provinciarum et Conventum.", atlante dell'ordine dei frati cappucini. L'atlante delle province cappuccine era stato iniziato in forma manoscritta dal ministro generale dell'ordine, padre Silvestro da Panicale nel 1632 e doveva servire da sussidio geografico per le visite generali. Alla sua morte il successore Padre Giovanni di Montecaliero, al quale spesso viene erroneamente attribuita la paternità delle carte, incaricò padre Massimino da Guechen di proseguire l'opera. Gli incisori delle lastre furono appunto Massimino da Guechen, Bernardino Burdigalensis e Ludovico Monteregali. La prima edizione fu stampata a Roma nel 1643, la seconda a Torino nel 1649 e quindi nel 1654 ed infine un'altra uscì nel 1712. Per convenzione attribuiamo le mappe al Montecalerio. L'opera mostrava visivamente la diffusione dell'ordine, infatti le diverse carte dell'atlante, che rappresentano nazioni e province, offrono per ognuna di esse la statistica completa dei conventi. Questa edizione definitiva del 1712 presenta le carte totalmente differenti, aggiornate ed arricchite. Stampata a Milano da Giovanni Battista Cassini. Incisione in rame, lievissima gora d'acqua, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara. Dimensioni 330 220mm [Attributes: First Edition]

An attractive copy. $750. * Later Gronov edition. With side-notes and index. Of all his numerous works De Jure Belli ac Pacis will always be considered Grotius' magnum opus, the work upon which his reputation most solidly rests. "The distinction between religion and law or morality is not clearly made, but Grotius' principle of an immutable law, which God can no more alter than a mathematical axiom, was the first expression of the droit naturel, the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the eighteenth century, and is the foundation of modern international law" (Carter and Muir). The first Gronov edition, one of the most important editions of Grotius, was published in 1663. This copy includes Mare Liberum, or Freedom of the Seas (1609), Grotius's influential treatise on maritime law and the right of free navigation. Carter and Muir, Printing and the Mind of Man 125.

        Hillegersberg, Berkel-Rodenrijs, Ackerdijkse Plassen - Cruiquius.

      Hillegersberg, Berkel-Rodenrijs, Ackerdijkse PlassenVierentwintichste Stuk en Vyfentwintichste Stuk uit de kaart van Delfland, met daarop de Ackerdijkse plassen, Hillegersberg en Berkel-Rodenrijs. Afmetingen: elk ca. 51 x 58 cm.Deze kaarten vormden onderdeel van de als atlas gebonden kaart 't Hoogheemraedschap van Delflant: met alle de Steden ... etc. daer in Gelegen, op Voetmaet / volgens Ordre van de Wel Eedele Heeren Dijkgraef en Hooge Heemraeden van Delflant, Gemeten en in Kaerte gebracht Door (de Geadmitteerde Landmeters) Nicol. en Jac. Kruikius (Cruquius). De kaart werd uitgegeven in 1712.Het vervaardigen van de kaart duurde vele jaren en kostte toen 20.000 gulden (!!). De topografie is perfect weergegeven, ook de door het slagturven in die tijd ontstane legakkers en veenplassen (die naderhand veelal weer werden drooggelegd).Deze kopergravures van Hillegersberg en Berkel-Rodenrijs zijn in de tijd prachtig met de hand gekleurd en met goud gehoogd. De gebonden fraai gekleurde exemplaren van de kaart van Delfland waren bedoeld als relatiegeschenken. Volgens Fockema Andrea & Koeman in Old maps and their makers (1975) is dit ?the most beautiful map of Delfland, the Kruikius map is stunning?'.Nicolaes Samuel Kruik (1678-1754), alias Cruquius, werd bekend als waterbouwkundige en cartograaf. Hij was landmeter en bracht het tot kandidaat in de medicijnen. Behalve het vervaardigen van de beroemde kaart van Delfland was hij in 1733 belast met het toezicht op de uitwateringswerken van Rijnland. Tevens had hij een belangrijk aandeel in de rivierverbetering van Rijnland. Met anderen deed hij voorstellen voor de droogmaking van de Haarlemmermeer en de drooggraving van Hoek van Holland. Na de overstromingen van de Merwede in 1726 bracht hij uitvoerig rapport uit met voorstellen tot verbetering van de rivier. Drie jaar later vervaardigd Cruquius een kaart van de Merwede die geldt als eerste rivierkaart met dieptelijnen ter wereld. Ook verwierf Cruquius bekendheid met zijn temperatuurmetingen, die bij historisch weeronderzoek nog steeds worden gebruikt.Literatuur: Donkersloot-de Vrij p. 159 nr. 806.Prijs: ?2.950,- (2 stuks, incl. lijst).

      1712 - in German with transcription and translation, addressed to Oberaufseher (Chief Inspector) von Below, enclosing a petition [not present] from Christian Ludwig von EBERSTEIN ZU NEUHAUS (1650-1717, of Neuhaus in Saxony), for "restitution of what has been paid on account of the Forest of Leinungen" (the 'Leinungischer Forst' near Mansfeld, on the Saxon side of the Harz Mountains), "and deposited at the Sequestrator's Revenue Department and the Office of Mines", agreeable to von Below's report of 27th May 1711 about "the Rescript you received from Dresden the 13th February 1708", Georg Ludwig adds that "His Royal and Electoral Majesty of Saxony", (Augustus the Strong, 1670-1733, founder of the Meissen factory and King of Poland), also wrote on 20th March 1711, mentioning the same Rescript, asking him to ensure that "the Receiver of Sequestrations, or whoever else took possession of the money for the Mint", return the money "without further delay", and desiring von Below to recover it and deliver it to von Eberstein, stamped at the head 'G L C' below the Electoral bonnet, 3 sides folio, Hanover, 26th May central fold expertly restored, side 1 somewhat faded but can all be made out, fine strong signature on side 3 The petitioner, Christian Ludwig von Eberstein had been a Brigade-Major in the Elector of Saxony's army, and then Chief Inspector and Chief Officer of Mines for Anhalt-Bernburg at Harzgerode. His family is traceable in the male line to the 900s and is still flourishing. His father, Ernst Albrecht, (1605-1676), had a remarkable career, ending as Generalissimo to the Elector of Saxony. The mines near Leinungen are particularly noted for copper.

        A Discovery of Subterranean Treasure, viz. Of all manner of Mines & Minerals, from the Gold to the Coal, with plain Directions and Rules for the finding of them in all Kingdoms and Countries. Also the Art of Melting, Refining, and Assaying them made plain and easie to every Ordinary Capacity, so that they may with small Charge try the value of such Oars as shall be found either by Rule or Accident. To which is added, A real Experiment, to try whether a Piece of Gold be True or Counterfeit, without defacing or altering the form thereof, with more Certainty that any Goldsmith or Refiner could formerly do

      Booksellers of London and Westminster, London 1712 - Important treatise on mineralogy considered the first useful text in English on metallurgical matters, it is essentially a technical guide to mining and metallurgy which in part speculates about America's potential as a source of rare ores. First published in 1639 in 4to format; in 1679 it appeared in this pamphlet format. The tract contains factual information illustrated by the author's own experiments and includes the following topics: the generation of mountains and metals; the signs of mines of minerals; the smelting and refining of Lead, Tinn, Iron, Copper, Silver and Gold; How true and perfect Gold may be made by Art; How to find Pit-coal; and how to colour with plant dyes. Plattes refers to the possibility of productive mining in the colonies, referring to New-England, Virginia, Bermudas, & c.: "these Mines, if they prove rich, would yield more Gain in one year than their Tobacco, and such Trifles, would yield in their whole Lives." (p5). Plattes was an extremely poor author who wanted to reprint this pamphlet in 'The Treasure House of Nature Unlocked' in 1644, but there is no record of this occurring. The author died of starvation in the 1650s. Pamphlet, 8vo, 22pp. Later single stitch bound with the original holes visible. Light general toning of paper with early ink mark in top corner.
