        Due disegni di paesaggi veneti di Francesco Lazzaro Guardi del '700

      Due disegni di paesaggi veneti di Francesco Lazzaro Guardi '700. (34 x 22,5 - 36 x 22,5) con lievi velature. Molto belle ed originali. Si consiglia a chi è interessato di venire a Bologna presso il nostro negozio previo appuntamento perchè i disegni si trovano altrove. Francesco Lazzaro Guardi (Venezia, 5 ottobre 1712 - Venezia, 1º gennaio 1793) è stato un pittore italiano vissuto nella Repubblica di Venezia. L'artista, al contrario del Canaletto, non mira, nelle sue pitture, a risultati di nitida percezione, ma propone un'interpretazione del dato reale soggettiva ed evocativa, realizzando immagini di città evanescenti e irreali; raggiungendo a volte una sensibilità definibile pre-romantica, grazie allo sfaldamento delle forme e a malinconiche penombre...

NOTE: While Kaempfer states "Chinese characters" in the text, actually what he meant to say was Japanese Kanji characters "borrowed" from the Chinese. ** THE AUTHOR: Engelbert Kaempfer [1740-1812], was a German doctor, and is best known as the director of the Deshima factory in Nagasaki, Japan from 1779-1780 & 1781-1784. Also his classic work: THE HISTORY OF JAPAN, 1827 & 1828 was his most stunning contribution to information on Japan at the time, their flora, especially the tea camellia, acupuncture, hand paper-making, and medical studies relating to acupuncture and the use of moxibustion as a cauterizing & therapeutal agent. *** In 1683 he joined the Swedish embassy to visit the Shah of Persia. The embassy traveled from Moscow, via Kazan, Astrakhan, across the Caspian Sea to Isfahan, the capital of Persia. Kaempfer ventured out along the way, exploring other areas by the Baku on the Caspian Sea. He was an avid student and mastered the Persian language, which enabled him to then focus on that country's flora, fauna and geography. The results of these studies are found in this text, with especial focus on the flora. . Upon return to Sweden, Kaempfer joined the Dutch East India Company, where he was appointed chief surgeon in the Persian Gulf. He explored Arabia, the west coast of India and finally ended up in Batavia, where he focused on Javanese natural history. While there, he met several people who had been stationed in Deshima, Japan, and some Japanese. At his request, he was appointed chief surgeon to Deshima where he studied all aspects of the Japanese. He also taught Dutch and Eu

Por NOVELO DE BONIS, Anno M. CX. II. (1712). In fólio de 32x22,4 cm. Com [iv], 231 fólios impressos apenas pela frente com excepção do índice que aparece no terceiro e quarto fólio inumerados. Encadernação do século XX inteira de pele castanha marmoreada [executada pelo mestre Império Graça] com nervos, belos ferros a ouro com motivos vegetalistas e título gravado em rótulo vermelho. Impressão com erros tipograficos na numeração das páginas, sem afectar a leitura do texto o texto: 24 por 23, 297 por 197 [e 207 por 208?]. Exemplar com rasgão na folha 116 reforçado com papel colado no verso e pequeno pico de traça na parte superior do festo desde a folha 184 ao fim. Numerosas anotações e acrescentos manuscritos coevos nas folhas 2, 4 a 15, 19 a 35, 37 a 40, 42 a 65, 67 e 68, 70 a 106, 108 a 111, 113 a 130, 132 e 133, 135, 137, 139 a 141, 143 a 173, 175 a 185, 187, 189 a 196, 198 e 199, 201, 203 a 206, 209 a 211, 215, 219 e 220, 222. As folhas 9, 33, 86, 103, 118, 127, 207 têm papeis colados sobre o texto, com acrescentos manuscritos. As folhas 48, 62, 226 têm correcções feitas com uma tira de papel, coeva, com texto impresso colada sobre a parte a corrigir. Exemplar desta polémica obra de genealogia muito valorizado pelas numerosas anotações e acrescemtos em letra coeva que enriquecem quase todas as folhas. Único tomo publicado. A obra saiu anonima, mas é atribuida ao pai do Marquês de Pombal. Impressa em forma de árvores genealogicas. Descreve a genealogia da Casa Real e das famílias mais importantes de Portugal. Cada uma das 230 àrvores genealógicas corresponde a um apelido ou título de varonia de cada casa. Para facilidade de consulta o autor fez um índice dos nomes dos fidalgos e outro dos títulos de que trata que são: 1 duque, 10 marqueses, 35 condes, 4 viscondes e 3 barões. O livro foi proibido por Alvará de 28 de Agosto de 1713, por ordem de D. Pedro II, por ?conter notórios erros contra a vontade do facto, não é conveniente que corra, nem que se lhe dê crédito algum.? Nos anos trinta do século XX levantou-se novamente uma discussão em torno do Theatro Genealógico, depois de dois escritores G. L. Santos Ferreira e Saul Santos Ferreira, neto do anterior, pela análise do frontispício do Theatro Genealógico concluírem tratar-se de um texto cabalístico guematrico de sinais hebraicos, cuja complexa decifração empreenderam e por conjugação com o exame do frontispício da Pericope Genealógica de Frei Jerónimo de Sousa, também publicada sob o pseudónimo de D. Tivisco sem data de edição, concluindo que Cristóvão Colombo seria afinal Salvador Gonçalves Zarco, filho bastardo do Infante D. Fernando, Duque de Viseu e de Beja, sobrinho e herdeiro do Infante D.

      Leiden: Isaac Severinus, 1712. Full Morocco. Very Good. A large paper edition of this classic on self-defense and mano a mano combat. 4to. 27 by 21.5 cm. Title, [2], 71 copper engraved plates, followed by five folding sheets, printing only on rectos, with explanations of the plates -- the purpose of the folds is to allow for the explanations to jut out and thus be readable while viewing the particular plate(s). The work was first published in 1674 in French. This edition is particularly desirable because of its being large paper. (We could find no copies, in book form, of this edition on OCLC, and only a single copy of an earlier edition in French, at the British Library.) Bound in an elaborately decorated Baroque ornamented, or Grolieresque, full crimson crushed morocco binding by Morley Brothers of Oxford. The binding decoration includes interlocking strap work in olive, green and black morocco, gilt dots, gilt floral vine ornamentation and ornamental scrolls, panelled-like turn-ins, etc. With silk doublures and endpapers. Darkening along the spine. Joints and spine tips expertly repaired. A few minor rub or abrasion spots on the boards. Occasional light fox marks or other minor soiling within. A few plates with expert paper restoration in the margins. Overall, still a beautiful copy of an early and fundamental work on wrestling.

      VD17 39:135561Q; cf. Atabey 1269-1271; Blackmer 1712; Gurney, "Della Valle, Pietro", in: Encyclopaedia Iranica (online ed.). First edition in German of Pietro della Valle's deservedly famous narrative of his travels in the Middle East, with an excellent account of Muscat and the Arabian Gulf and reference to Dibba. Della Valle arrived in Istanbul in August 1614, spending a year to explore the city. He continued to Rhodes, Alexandria, Rosetta, Cairo, crossing the Sinai desert to Jerusalem, Damascus and Aleppo. From there he proceeded to Isfahan (Iran) to meet the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas I. He sojourned in Persia until early 1623, witnessing and commenting on the escalating conflict between Shah Abbas and the Portuguese empire. By way of India he sailed for Muscat in January 1623, from where crossed the Arabian Gulf to Basra, continuing overland to Aleppo, arriving in Europe in 1626. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning." (Gurney).Engraved armorial bookplate on paste-down. Evenly browned throughout, some spotting, few quires in volume 3 with wormholes in gutter margin, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition.

Small patch of staining and a small area of barely perceptible insect damage on rear board. Light tanning, occasional foxing. A very good copy. The rare, one-volume, true first edition of an important buccaneering and Pacific voyage, hastily produced to beat the competing narrative of Woodes Rogers to the market. Cooke was commander of one of the ships in the buccaneering expedition of Capt. Woodes Rogers which circumnavigated the globe, visited the coast of California in 1709, and preyed on Spanish shipping on the west coast of South America. This narrative includes an account of California, with a plate showing a native of the region. The expedition also put in at the island of Juan Fernandez where they discovered the castaway, Alexander Selkirk, the prototype for Robinson Crusoe. A rush to issue an account of this voyage developed between the publishers of this narrative and that of Woodes Rogers. The present first edition was therefore quickly published, and is distinguished from the second edition by consisting only of one volume. The last chapter of this edition, a compressed account of the voyage home, was duplicated and expanded to comprise a second volume in the second edition later in the same year.

      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.

        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.
