BERNINI, Domenico
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 Kuns … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mexico: por Francisco de Rivera Calderon, 1713. 8vo. I: [24] ff., 192 pp., [2] ff. II: [8] ff., 80 pp., [2] ff. The first work in this volume is a handbook for priests with Nahuatl-speakers as parishioners; it contains a summary of "the five sacraments that ministers of the gospel administer here in America. With all the moral cases that occur among Indians." Principally in Spanish, it has the prescribed responses of the parishioners in Nahuatl.    The second work is a Nahuatl grammar, this being its only colonial-era edition.    Pérez was a professor of Nahuatl at the Royal University of Mexico and one of the country's leading experts in the period 1675–1725.    Provenance: On the front fly-leaf the late 18th-century ownership inscription of Lic. Manuel Villa telling => where he purchased the book and its cost and imploring anyone who borrows it to return it; early 19th-century ownership signature on title-page of Jose Mariano Perdomo; 20th-century blind pressure-stamp on title-page of Sotomayor Vaqueiro.    At the rear of the volume is a manuscript note in a clear hand stating the Bachiller Jose Mariano Perdomo had completed two years of study of theology.         I: Viñaza 255; H. de León-Portilla, Tepuztlahcuilolli, 2131; García Icazbalceta, Lenguas, 59; Medina, Mexico, 2370; Sabin 60913; Pilling, Proof-sheets, 2955.

Hamilton, Anthony; Grammont, Philibert, comte de (Gramont)
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.

NEWTON, Isaac
[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.

BESLER, Basilius].
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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

STEELE, RICHARD
Printed by Sam. Buckley and sold by Ferd. Burleigh. First edition, second issue, with the imprint changed from 1713 to 1714.. A remarkable copy: minor wear and soiling with some corners dog-eared, but overall in fine condition, nearly as issued.. Rothschild 1950; NCBEL II, 1115. 4to, original gray wrappers, stitched as issued, untrimmed, 37 pages + 1 page of publisher?s ads. Steele?s famous, widely circulated and controversial polemic on the question of Hanoverian succession, which - together with his other pamphlet The Englishman - was responded to by Swift?s equally famous The Publick Spirit of the Whigs, all of which led Steele to be expelled from the House of Commons, only eight months after he was admitted, for scandalous and seditious libels against Her Majesty, the Nobility, Gentry and Clergy of the Kingdom.

Leyden. Rare and important original color map of southeast North America, from Maryland and Illinois in the north (including Philadelphia) to Mexico in the south and the Bahamas in the east.

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1713. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent 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 using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he 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.

Newton, Isaac
[Cornelius Crownfield], Cambridge, 1713. 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.
