The second edition, expanded and corrected, and the first to include the General Scholium in which Newton gives a general resumé of the work. One of about 750 copies printed, of which 250 were sent to Holland and France. Engraved vignette on title, one folding engraved plate, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text. 14 leaves, 484, [8] pp. 1 vols. 4to. The Second Principia. The critical second edition of what is incontestably the single most important scientific work ever published, one which laid the foundations for modern physics. Published in Newton's lifetime by his friend and collaborater, Roger Cotes (1682-1716), this edition contains for the first time Cotes' Preface which lays out Newton's method, a 7 pp. Index, and most importantly, Newton's own celebrated conclusion entitled SCHOLIUM GENERALE (pp. 481-484), written in response to the objections of Berkeley and Leibniz, in which the author expresses the religious conceptions underlying and supporting his empirical-mathematical construct. "Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The PRINCIPIA provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory. With him the separation of natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws" (PMM).

        Vita del Cavalier Gio.Lorenzo Bernino, Descritta da Domenico Bernino suo figlio

      1713. BERNINI, Domenico. Vita del Cavalier Gio.Lorenzo Bernino, Descritta da Domenico Bernino suo figlio. [20], 180, [8] pp. Illustrated with the full-page portrait of Gian-Lorenzo engraved by Arnold van Westerhout after a painting by Giovanni Battista Gaulli, known as Baciccio. 8vo., 239 x 175 mm, bound in contemporary Italian vellum over boards. In Roma: Rocco Bernabo, 1713. |~||~||~||~| First Edition. Though nearly twice the length of the earlier 'Vita of Bernini' written by Filippo Baldinucci (1682), this version omits the catalogue of the artist's works and the nine architectural engravings. When comparing the two works, Domenico's biography was considered a doppelganger of its predecessor. Although both works use virtually the same title, Domenico omits the professional identities scultore, architetto, e pittore on his title, which underscores the son's emphasis on Bernini the 'man' in place of Baldinucci's account of Bernini the 'artist.' Until the late twentieth century, it was believed that Baldinucci's Vita del Cavaliere Gio. Lorenzo Bernino was the ultimate word on Bernini. The biography that followed 31 years later written by Bernini's youngest son Domenico Bernini (1657-1724) was considered by Adolfo Venturi, Julius von Schlosser and many others to be a shameless example of plagiarism of the earlier Baldinucci text. However, in 1919 Erwin Panofsky began investigating the two nearly similar texts and recorded that he felt Domenico's version to be more persuasive (see: "Die Scala Regia im Vatikan und die Kunstanschauungen Berninis," Jahrbuch der Preussischen Kunstsammlungen 40 (1919, pp. 241-78, especially 272 n. 1 and 276 n. 4). In 1966 Cesare D'Onofrio, following Panofsky's lead, compared the two texts in light of a detailed analysis of what was then known about the genesis of Baldinucci's and Domenico's biographies, and he hypothesized that Baldinucci relied heavily on material provided by the Bernini family, including a complete manuscript Vita written by Domenico while his artist/father was still alive (see: "Note Berniniane 2: Priorità della biografia di Domenico Bernini su quella del Baldinucci," Palatino 10 (1966), pp. 201-8). "Though his Life of Gian Lorenzo Bernini was published only in 1713, Domenico wrote the first draft of this full-length biography of his father in the late 1670s (see the publisher's "Preface to the Reader"), while his father was still alive and with presumably some input from his father, if only in the indirect form of anecdotes and tales told by Bernini to his children at the dinner table and remembered by the author while compiling his biography. The most compelling evidence leads scholars now to conclude that Domenico's lost first draft, in fact, supplied the substance of the biography of Bernini published in 1682 by Florentine art critic Filippo Baldinucci, for there is no other persuasive explanation for the substantial amount of verbatim repetition between the two works. Though Baldinucci's work for many years enjoyed pride of place among the scant primary sources for the life and works of Bernini, it is Domenico's biography that represents the most important biographical source" (Franco Mormando, The Life of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. A Translation and Critical Edition, with Introduction and Commentary, Penn State University Press, 2011). "When D'Onofrio's hypotheses about the genesis and priority of the biographies finally took hold in the 1980s, Domenico's text came to be considered the biography that stood closer to Bernini himself, even proffering the promise of conveying actual one-on-one exchanges between artist and biographer" (see Introduction to Maarten Delbeke's Life of Bernini, Penn State University Press, 2007). Some pencil underlining, else a fine copy. Cicognara 2209. Schlosser-Magnino 469. Rossetti 1009.

        Memoires de la vie du comte de Grammont; contenant particulierement l'histoire amoureuse de la cour d'Angleterre, sous le regne de Charles II

      Cologne: Pierre Marteau, 1713. First edition. Full calf, raised bands, six gilt decorated compartments, marbled endpapers. Title in red and black. Spine scuffed else a very good copy with boards rubbed, a few tiny worm holes to the top edge of the rear board, endpapers toned at the edges, binding tight, text clean with only some odd foxing. 12mo.(17 cm). Thought to be written all or in part by Anthony Hamilton, Grammont's brother-in-law, a Jacobite officer who fought at the Boyne and settled in France after the first exile of the Stuarts. Grammont was an unscrupulous libertine and gambler who was eventually banished from the Court of Louis XIV for casting an eye (most certainly more) on one of the King's favorites. Grammont appears to have dictated the first and most entertaining section, down to his exile, to Hamilton while the last part, largely concerned with scandals of the court of Charles II, is by Hamilton. "The memoirs are written in admirable French, in a light, easy, slightly ironic style," OCFL. Armorial bookplate of de Constant Rebecque. Brunet III, p.29; Picot / Rothschild 1693. Graesse 204 (Later ed.). Ruble 452. Querard 815-16. Backer 1065.

        Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica.

      [University Press], Cambridge 1713 - 4to. [xxviii], 484, [6] pp. Complete with 1 folding plate and numerous textual diagrams. Contemporary blind-paneled calf, rebacked; marginal browning on the paste-down and flyleaves, very light marginal dampstains. Ownership signature of Jacobi Hebard on front paste-down. One of only 750 copies printed, this second edition of the Principia, edited by Roger Cotes, contains a leaf of verses by Halley not mentioned in Gray’s bibliography of Newton. In his important preface, Cotes attacks the Cartesian philosophy then still in vogue in the universities, and refutes an assertion that Newton’s theory of attraction is a "causa occulta." Additional material was added by Newton himself, including a second preface and an expanded chapter on the lunar theory of comets. A General Scholium was also added in which Newton sums up the purpose and accomplishment of the work.

        I. Absinthium vulgare. II. Absinthium Latifolium marinum. III. Absinthium Ponticum album.

      Nuremburg 1713 - Copper-engraving, with fine hand colour. Dimensions: 520 by 420mm. (20.50 by 16.50 inches). A magnificent plate from "Hortus Eystettensis", one of the earliest and most famous works in the field. The Hortus Eystettensis is a pictorial record of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time, that of Prince Bishop of Eichstatt, Johann Conrad von Gemmingen. The garden was begun by Joachim Camerarius in 1596 and, after his death in 1598, completed by Basil Besler, a pharmacist from Nuremberg. A visitor, Philipp Hainhofer, in 1611 marvelled at the eight gardens, each containing 'flowers from a different country; they varied in the beds and flowers, especially in the beautiful roses, lilies, tulips.' The Hortus records this variety and beauty. The book is exceptional in every sense; in its variety and range of flowers, in its size, in its fine quality of engraving. It is also one of the earliest records of flowers from a specific, documented garden. Besler was asked to complete the work by Gemmingen in 1606; the huge nature of the task was clear to Besler and he enlisted the help of his younger brother Hieronymus and Ludwig Jungermann, a nephew of Camerarius. Printing the Hortus may have begun as early as 1607. Drawings were made in situ and from specimens sent by the Bishop to Nuremberg; the Bishop reported to Hainhofer that he had boxes of fresh flowers sent every week to Besler at Nuremberg for sketching. A team of at least 10 engravers were employed to translate the drawings to copperplates. The gardens, along with most of the town of Eichstatt, were destroyed by the invading Swedish troops under Herzog Bernhard von Weimar in 1633-4, although they were partially restored by later bishops. Many of the original drawings survive in the University Library, Erlangen.

        Windsor-Forest. To the Right Honourable George Lord Lansdown

      London: Printed for Bernard Lintott 1713. - Folio, pp. [2], 18; slight spotting but a very good copy, disbound.First edition of Pope's second separately published poem, preceded by An Essay on Criticism in 1711. Written in the tradition that young poets begin with pastoral verse, Windsor-Forest, with its epigraph from Virgil's Eclogues, was the poem that first won Swift's regard and laid foundations for the 'most celebrated literary friendship of the earlier eighteenth century' (Oxford DNB).The poem takes its title from the royal forest which surrounded the farming village of Binfield in Berkshire, where Pope lived from the age of eleven – anti-Catholic legislation had forced his family to leave London in 1692. 'Granted the idealization of the English countryside the scenery it describes corresponds with remarkable accuracy to features actually present in the landscape' (Maynard Mack). Pope rescued the earlier, descriptive, section of the poem from his own juvenilia. The conclusion, with its vision of the peace that was hoped for following the Treaty of Utrecht, gives it a political dimension. The oaks of Windsor forest become a symbol of Englishness and, significantly for Pope, of the Stuarts. The prophecy that the trees will 'rush' bravely into the seas as new ships for naval conquests is a further endorsement for Queen Anne's reign. 'Non injussa cano' begins the epigraph, 'not without warrant I sing' (Virgil, Eclogues, vi.9): Pope's warrant for the concluding lines in particular was the encouragement of the dedicatee, the Tory statesman and poet, George Granville.'Pope was aware that the treaty of Utrecht was supposed to give Britain increased access to the slave trade. Yet his concluding vision explicitly includes abolition of slavery (ll. 407–12). Among scores of poems on the peace, Windsor-Forest appears to be the only one to mention actual (not metaphorical) slavery and oppose it' (Oxford DNB).Foxon P987; Griffith 9; Rothschild 1567.

        Mayor for Life" - the sale of Municipal Offices in France]. SAMMELBAND of 3 MSS and 2 printed documents, including "Edit du roy portant création de maires perpétuels et d'assesseurs dans les hostels de ville et communautez du royaume. Donné à Versailles au mois d'Aoust 1692."

      December 1713 - July 1714 - Folio: together 3 manuscripts + 2 printed texts loosely stitched): 10 pp., 1 blank f., 3 pp. (written on vellum), 8 pp. Sewn to: "Declaration du Roy pour le Reglement des fonctions des Maires & de laurs Lieutenans." Paris, 19 Aug. 1702 (11 Sept. 1702) + "Edit du Roy, portant creation de Maires perpetuels." Paris, Aug. 1692 (27 Aug. 1692). + 1 blank f. (docket). Worn and partially defective; some staining, and priced accordingly. Manuscript and printed documents which illustrate the legislation and regulations of mayors in France, and the sale of municipal offices during the late 17th- and early 18th-century. The present collection a printed copy of the actual 1692 Royal Edict which authorizes the sales of mayoral offices; moreover, there is a contemporary MS account of a lawsuit by such a (former) mayor against the town of Arras. The significance of this rare Edict is described by Michael P. Breen: "In the early 1690s, as the monarchy struggled to keep its armies in the field against the combined forces of England, the Dutch Republic, Austria, and the Holy Roman Empire, it began aggressively to tap the wealth of France's towns, selling virtually all existing municipal offices and creating new ones for sale. In August 1692, Louis XIV created offices of "perpetual mayors" along with new assesseurs in all walled cities except Paris and Lyon. The threat of losing control over their city's principal office, it appears, was enough to motivate the leading inhabitants of many major cities to pay the crown's asking price, often 100,000 livres or more." (SOURCE: "Law, City, and King: Legal Culture, Municipal Politics and State Formation in Early Modern Dijon, pp. 136 et seq.). This is corroborated by Raymond Poincare who states that "From 1692 onwards Louis XIV issued a whole series of edicts and ordinances depriving the ancient electors of the communes of the right of choosing their own mayors ; he created the offices that is, hereditary public appointments of sheriffs, jurats, capitols, and perpetual mayors. The pretext alleged was that the interest of the towns demanded such a step, as they were said to be agitated and disturbed by elections. But in actual truth these offices were created that they might be sold and the royal treasury filled." (SOURCE: How France is Governed, pp. 33-34). The present manuscripts concern a lawsuit by one of these mayors, namely Nicolas-Francois Boucquel (at that time mayor of Arras) against Adrien-Philippe du Carieul, Chevalier, Seigneur de Fiefs, Beauquesne, etc., and the members of the Confrérie Saint Sebastien in Arras. To these manuscripts are attached printed documents which describe the new terms for the office of the "perpetual mayor" and would appear to have been used to support the position of the plaintiff. As if the infallibility of the original 1692 Edict was not enough, the plaintiff also attached a copy of the 19 Aug. 1702 "Declaration du Roy pour le Reglement des fonctions des Maires & de leurs Lieutenans." The document reaffirms the validity of the 1692 and August 1701 Edicts. THE PLAINTIFF: Nicolas-François Boucquel came from a powerful and wealthy family (his father had been ennobled to a charge of Secretary to the King in the Chancery of Paris in 1683). Boucquel became mayor of Arras in March 1692, and was appointed Conseiller Secretaire-Controlleur of the Chancellerie pres le Parlement de Douay in 1703. In this capacity he presided over the renewal of the aldermen and hearing accounts. In 1718 the city of Arras tried to get rid of Boucquel, and suddenly "abolished" the mayoral post, only to appoint François Deslyons the next year. But in 1719, Boucquel was reinstated upon payment of twelve thousand livres. Nicolas-François Bouquel died suddenly December 18, 1726, struck with apoplexy in the rue Saint-Nicolas, in Arras (SOURCE: Dictionnaire historique et archéologique du département du Pas-de-Calais, Volume 1, 1873, p. 52). Several versions of the August 1692 Edict exist, only one of [Attributes: First Edition]

Johnson, MDCCXI, MDCCXII (1712-1713). - 2 volumes in 1 ; 17 cm. ; OCLC: 43360329 ; contemporary banded leather, peeling at spine ; This is the complete collection of the 85 issued numbers of van Effen's Le Misantrope, considered the first magazine to be published in Europe, patterned on that of The Spectator of Addison and Steele ; Justus van Effen was born in Utrecht, and after a botched attempt to complete a scientific degree at the University of Utrecht, as well as a couple of wild love affairs, he made his way to London where he spent much time in the company of the literary circles that frequented the then-scandalous coffee houses ; upon his return to the Netherlands, he eventually makes his way to the Hague, where he is employed for a time. Here he publishes the magazine in numbers written anonymously, selling for half a stuiver. Although the magazine fails after just two years, and van Effen goes on to publish other, more lavish serial publications, this remains his most important contribution. After much acclaim in his later years, and after arranging for the livelihood of his mistress and illegitimate children by a deathbed marriage, van Effen died of cancer in Den Bosch on September 18, 1735 ; G [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Scabiosa Indica flore saturate rubro [Double-flowered mourning bride]; Scabiosa Indica flore dilute rubro [Mourning bride]; Scabiosa tenuifolia flore cinero [Scabiosa]

      Eichstatt 1713 - Hand-coloured engraving. Some soiling in bottom margin and off-set from text, otherwise good condition. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years from the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and "exotic" plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler and his brothers were familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of the different plants, and they lived at a time when exotic, new plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that Besler organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.
