        [Longitude.] An Act for Providing a Publick Reward for such Person or Persons as Discover the Longitude at Sea.

      General title and three pages; 3 leaves in total. Disbound from a collection. Repaired at spine, with a few visible old stitch holes; else excellent. The important first publication of the Longitude Act. The projectors, William Whiston and Humphrey Ditton, first began a concerted public campaign to lobby Parliament for a longitude reward in 1713. After testimony from learned individuals, inlcuding Isaac Newton, Parliament passed and Queen Anne approved an Act in July 1714. The authors cited the importance of finding the Longitude for the 'Safety and Quickness of Voyages, the Preservation of Ships and the Lives of Men.' One of the first known examples of a government-sponsored award to stimulate scientific research, the Board of Longitude was authorise to award a first prize of £20,000.00. to any person who devised a system capable of measuring longitude within a half degree of a great circle, and lesser amounts for schemes of a lesser accuracy.

Marquard Gude (1635-1689) was a German classical scholar, most famous for his collection of Greek and Latin inscriptions. His correspondence, here edited by Dutch classical scholar Pieter Burmann, is the most important authority for the events of Gude's life, besides containing valuable information on the learning of the times. Claude Sarrau (c. 1600-1651) was a French writer whose letters were first published by his son in the 1650s; Burmann reprinted them as the second part of this volume. Some Latin verses on a medal of Queen Christina of Sweden won Sarrau the special benevolence of that lady (see Part 2 p. 230).

        A New and Accurate Map of the Empire of Japan

      - This map of the Empire of Japan owes its detail to the writings of Jesuit missionaries and Portuguese and Dutch explorers. The interior of the archipelago is described in great detail, with the names of cities, towns, rivers, and lakes dispersed among pictorial mountains. Furthermore, the map contains ample information about many the smaller islands of the archipelago, which are often accompanied by explanatory notes about discovery and colonialism. Some significant features of the map are the inclusion of the southern coast of Kamchatka and the designation of the Sea of Japan as the Sea of Korea. Int he upper left corner of the map is an elaborate title cartouche that incorporates elements of Japanese design and costume. This map was published in Bowen's "Complete System of Geography." It is a dark impression in very good condition, with ample margins and few chips or tears. Staining to bottom margin not affecting the image. Emanuel Bowen (1714-1767) was an English map engraver who served as Royal Mapmaker to George II of England and Louis XV of France. He was well-regarded for his large, detailed, accurate, and overall attractive maps. The level of detail of this map of Japan makes it one of the best English maps of the region of its time. Map. Engraving. Image measures 14 x 17".

        Opera omnia, tam antea sparsim edita.Lausanne & Geneva: Marci-Michaelis Bousquet, 1742. First edition.

      An exceptionally fine and complete copy with both the portraits which often lack, from the collection of Robert Honeyman. "Bernoulli published only one book, <i>Théorie de la manoeuvre des vaisseaux</i> (1714) and apart from this, his dissertation <i>De motu musculorum</i> (1694) and one or two minor pieces, all his work was contributed to journals (189 papers are collected here) or were first published in these volumes, i.e. 59 of his lectures and the <i>Hydraulica</i> in volume IV [appearing here for the first time in print], which was written in competition with his son Daniel." (Roger Gaskell). <br/><br/> ❧Honeyman 293 (this copy, sold for $1,500 in 1978); Norman 217; Stanitz 55; Arnoud de Vitry 55.<br/><br/> "The first volume is primarily devoted to problems in geometry and the early calculus, but also contains papers on muscular mechanics, the resistance of solids, and a geometrical demonstration of the motion of pendulums and projectiles in resisting and unresisting media. Volumes two and three are almost totally devoted to problems of mechanics, the first of these containing his theoretical essay on the maneuvering of vessels and related papers, as well as numerous contributions on the analysis of trajectories. His discourse on the laws governing the communication of movement opens volume three, which also contains his essay on celestial mechanics. The last volume contains contributions on the curvature of elastic plates, his mechanico-dynamical propositions, and problems in dynamics. Most important, its appearance in this volume represents the first printing of the <i>Hydraulica</i>, which was written in competition with his son, Daniel.<br/><br/> "Johann Bernoulli 'proposed the problem of the brachystochrone (the Bernoullis' term - the curve of quickest descent joining two points), to which Galileo had given an incorrect solution: he solved it himself (the answer is the cycloid) in 1697. It is due to his work on this problem and that of finding the curve of given perimeter which will enclose the greatest area that he is considered one of the founders of the calculus of variations. He is also remembered for his work on the exponential calculus; on geodesics; on complex numbers; and his treatment of trigonometry as a branch of the calculus.' (DSB). He also first enunciated the principle of virtual work and was the first to denote the accelerating effect of gravity by the sign <i>g</i>, thus arriving at the formula <i>v</i> square equals 2<i>gh</i>. Todhunter and Pearson note Bernoulli's treatment of the cause of elasticity in his <i>Discours sur les loix de la communication du movement</i> (1727) and his theory of 'captive aether.' Timoshenko remarks on his formulation of the principle of virtual displacements in a letter to Varignon." (Bibliotheca Mechanica).. 4 volumes 4to (247 x 196 mm) . Fully complete: vol. I: pp. [4] [i] ii-xxiv, [1-2] 3-563 [1:blank], title in red and black, 25 engraved plates, including a portrait of Frederick III of Prussia engraved by G.F. Schmidt, a portrait of Bernoulli by Schmidt after J. Ruber, and 23 folding engraved plates numbered i-xxiii; vol. II: pp. [2], [1-3] 4-620, 17 folding engraved plates numbered xxiv-xl; vol.

      London: Printed for John Morphew, 1714. First edition, first issue. [2], 45 pp. 1 vols. 4to. Modern marbled boards. Title somewhat spotted and with wormhole through first few leaves, slight waterstaining in blank margins to text; otherwise very good. The scarce first issue of one of Swift&#39;s most effective political pamphlets, written on behalf of the government against Steele&#39;s The Crisis. Swift&#39;s aspersions on the Scottish peers made the Lords seek special means to suppress his work, and it was reprinted with the offending passages removed. His remarks here make it clear why the suppression was sought: in reply to Steele&#39;s note that the Kingdom of Scotland had many nobles, Swift chips in: "They had indeed; and to that we owe one of the great and necessary Evils of the Union upon the Foot it now stands. Their Nobility is indeed so numerous, that the whole Revenues of their Country would be hardly able to maintain them according to the Dignity of their Titles; and what is infinitely worse, they are never likely to be Extinct till the last Period of all Things ... I could Point out some with great Titles, who affected to appear very vigorous for Dissolving the Union, though their whole Revenues before that Period would have ill maintained a Welch Justice of the Peace; and have since gathered more Money than ever any Scotchmen, who had not travell&#39;d, could form an Idea of."&#11;&#11;Very scarce on the market.

      London: Printed for J. Morphew and A. Dodd, 1714. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. London: Printed for J. Morphew near Stationers-Hall, and A. Dodd without Temple Bar, 1714. 12mo. xxiv,287,[1]pp. §Full title reads: The Third and last Volume of the History of the Lives and Robberies Of the most noted Highway-Men, Foot-Pads, House-Breakers, Shop-Lifts, And other Thieves and Murderers of both Sexes, in and about London, and other Places of great Britain, for above 50 Years last past. And wherein is not only discover'd the most secret and barbarous Murders, and unparallell'd Robberies formerly done; but also an Account of above an hundred Murders and Robberies committed by Criminals executed at the Assizes last held throughout the Kingdom. With certain Rules how all Persons shall escape being robb'd for the future. By Capt. Alexander Smith. §This third volume NOT IN ESTC. The work (revised in 1719 under the amended title 'A Compleat History of the Lives and Robberies Of the most Notorious Highway-Men...') is known in Morphew and Dodd's two volume first edition of 1714; reprinted the same year. (ESTC & other records are confusing but seemingly three 2 vol. first edition sets are held: Bodleian, Bristol, & William Andrews Clark; and two copies of the 1714 reprint: BL and Oxford, one of these perhaps lacking a volume). §The volume offered appears to be a unique example of an accompanying third volume of the same year. Comparison (not exhaustive) with the text of the two volume 1719 edition indicates that the contents are predominantly included in volume II of the latter: pages 1-284 (line 5) are in vol. II (1719) pages 109-319; pages 284 (line 6) to 286 (line 18) are in vol. II (1719) pages 363-364; and part of the preface is the same as that of vol. II (1719). Small erasure (perhaps ownership initials?) to head of title. A very good copy, occasional browning & foxing, rebound in early nineteenth century calf by W. Pratt, all edges gilt, double contrasting labels, with later expert reback with nineteenth century spine laid down and marbled endpapers preserved. Nineteenth century bookplate of Fountaine Walker to front pastedowns. (**This item will require special carriage arrangements - please ask for details**).

        An Act for Providing a Publick Reward for such Person or Persons as shall Discover the Longitude at Sea [In a volume combining parliamentary acts for the twelfth year of Queen Anne's reign, with brief section for first year of George I]

      London: John Baskett, 1714. Folio, with 4 pp. table; bound with 22 other parliamentary acts for the session in contemporary plain calf, brown label, slightly rubbed, in very good condition. The longitude reward announced. The important first publication of the Longitude Act: 'nothing is so much wanted and desired at Sea, as the Discovery of the Longitude'. The act - more often seen in disbound form - is here in its appropriate context in the full printing of the twenty-three Acts of the first session of parliament in 1714. Other acts in the session are of some interest: for example one act removes the "ad valorem" tax on imported books and prints, another is for "Encouraging the Tobacco-Trade",The discovery of an accurate method of measuring longitude was recognised as fundamental to the naval expansion of Britain, especially after disasters such as the loss of Admiral Shovell's squadron on the Isles of Scilly in 1707. The Act was promulgated in July 1714 and is here published by the then Queen's printer John Baskett, as 'An act for providing a publick reward for such person or persons as shall discover the longitude at sea' (pp. [353]-357). This led to the formation of the Commissioners for the Discovery of the Longitude at Sea, otherwise known as the Board of Longitude. One of the first known examples of a government-sponsored award to stimulate scientific research, the board was given the authority to award a first prize of £20,000 to any person who submitted a proposal capable of measuring longitude within half a degree of a great circle, as well as lesser awards and small grants.A committee was quickly formed, with experts such as Newton and Halley heavily involved. Although several proposals were made, for two decades none were even considered likely enough to require the board formally convening. It was not until the trial of Harrison's first chronometer, H-1, that the board first met.

He went by sea from Amsterdam along the coast of Norway to Archangel above the polar circle, and travelled by river and overland southwards through Russia and the Caspian Sea, from there over land to Persia, the Gulf and by ship again onward to Batavia (now Jakarta), back to Persia, and across the Mediterranean homewards. It is an extensive work important to naval and travel history, and includes beautiful large panoramic views of, for instance, Archangel, Moscow, and "Spahan" (= Isfahan), some are impressively long when unfolded. Most are as stated in the title, from drawings made on the spot by de Bruin himself. The work was dedicated to Anton Ulrich, Duke of Brunswyk and Lunenburg.

"Viewed as a whole, the contents [of Harmonia Sacra], both as to text and music, reveal a style that can best be described as very 'high church'... Purcell had not only contributed a larger share than anyone else to Harmonia Sacra, book I, but, as Henry Playford stated in a preface..., had taken upon himself the responsibilities of music editor as well." Zimmerman p. 147. "In early July 1693 the second volume of Harmonia Sacra was advertised for sale, contained in which were five of Purcell's finest devotional songs." King: Henry Purcell, p. 195. " 'In guilty night' is unique among all Purcell's sacred music: it fits into no single category, combining elements of the devotional song with those of the cantata and the oratorio." ibid p. 196 "Harmonia Sacra also contained two magnificent settings for solo soprano which demonstrate how Purcell had taken the dramatic, declamatory Italian style and created his own variant, brilliantly colourful yet always aware of every subtlety in the text..." ibid p. 197 Purcell's treatment of Nahum Tate's 'Tell me, some pitying angel'... is one of the greatest examples of Purcell's genius for setting words and capturing changing emotions, and arguable one of the best solo settings in the whole English musical repertoire." ibid In addition to works by Purcell, these volumes include pieces by Blow, Carissimi, Clark, Croft, Gratiani, King and others.

        Biblische Historien (Historie)

      Very Good 1714, Hamburg Germany. The first ever printing of this seminal classic. The first time that Bible stories were printed specifically for children. Thus it was somewhat "cleansed" before publication. One source I found says that the incest and murder committed by David were altered, among other things. It is four inches by seven inches, and includes 104 plates from engravings, 52 in the Old Testament, and 52 in the New Testament. There are 400 pages of text, plus the eight page introduction. Also, all the plates are on unnumbered pages, for a total of 512 printed pages. The book is in its original calves leather boards and spine, which are still attached but fragile. All pages, including all front and rear endpapers, are present. The last two plates have been repaired at the edges, and several pages inside have edge tears or stains, but they are minimal. There is the expected foxing throughout, and a former owner name and inscription in pencil at the front and a name alone in pencil at the rear. The leather of the boards and spine are rubbed and worn, and partially chipped off at the spine ends. The original black leather spine label with gilt titles is still present. A rare gem, the only copy I have ever seen of the original first printing from 1714. Johann Hübner (1668-1731) was a German geographer born in Türchau bei Zittau on May 15, 1668. He studied Theology, History and Geography in Leipzig from 1689 onwards. From 1691 he was Master, and then from 1694 Rector, of the Gymansium at Merseburg (Martisberg); then from 1711 of the Johanneum College in Hamburg. Hübner worked with Nuremberg mapmaker J B Homann (1663-1724) and English cartographer Jean Palairet (1697-1774). His other published works included Kurze Fragen aus der alten und neuen Geographie (Leipzig 1693 ) and Museum Geographicum, Das Ist: In Verzeichnis der besten Land-Charten...nebst einem Vorchlage, wie daruas allerhand große und kleine Atlantes können sortiert...
