        Il mondo ingannato da falsi medici. Discorsi del Dottor Giuseppe Gazola, Veronese, Medico Cesareo, ed Accademico Alethofilo. (Opera postuma)

      PRIMERA EDICION (?).- In Trento, Per Gio: [Giovanni] Antonio Brunati, Con Licenza de' Superiori, [ca. 1716].- [6 h.], 200 p., [1 h.]: letras y viñetas capitulares grabadas en madera; 8º menor (15,7 cm.); Enc. en Pergamino época con título manuscrito en lomera, cinco nervios.- El libro tiene dos anotaciones antiguas en la hoja de cortesía y portada, sin afectar texto; por lo demás se encuentra en MUY BUEN ESTADO, con el papel blanco y sin manchas. CONTIENE: Introducción; Discorso I: Essere meglio star senza medico, che non averne un buono; Discorso II: Esservi la Medicina, ma poter ogni uno esser Medico di sè Medesimo; Discorso III: Della difficoltà della Medicina, e dell'inganno delle più famose sette de Medici, e particolarmente de gli Dommatici, e seguaci de gli Antichi; Discorso IV: Nel quale si contengono alcuni avvertimenti per vivere, e conservare molto tempo la salute; Discorso V: Se sia meglio valersi de Medici Moderni, o Galenisti. El autor (1661-1715), médico veronés y fundador de la Accademia degli Aletofili, fue un adelantado a su tiempo, anticipando el espíritu de la ilustración en su defensa de una medicina científica en contraposición a la clásica griega; según Gazola, proliferaban en su tiempo numerosos curanderos, autoproclamados médicos, que prácticamente mataban a sus pacientes en vez de curarlos. El texto está escrito con una fina ironía y no muestra compasión alguna, algo especialmente comprensible al ser una edición póstuma que probablemente el autor mandara imprimir justo tras su muerte, un año antes; el revuelo que causó fue considerable, existiendo hasta 24 ediciones distintas de esta obra, con sus correspondientes contestaciones y defensas varias. El libro que ofrecemos no tiene fecha impresa, pero sabemos que el editor, Giannantonio Brunati, publicó un par de contestaciones a esta obra ya en el 1717, y otra más en el 1718; es probable, por tanto, que el texto que ofrecemos sea del propio 1716, año en el que vio la luz la primera edición. Acerca de la misma, siendo éste un libro tan prolífico, existe sin embargo un notorio desconocimiento: algunos toman como tal la impresa en Venecia por Marino Rossetti, pero el fallecido Christian Wilhelm Kästner aduce en su Bibliotheca Medica, pág. 178, § 7, que la primera edición de la obra fue impresa en Praga, en tamaño 8º; sin embargo, no hemos encontrado evidencia de esta edición ni en la Bibl. Nacional de la República Checa, ni en la Bibl. Municipal de Praga, ni tampoco en los fondos del Inst. Checo de Literatura, siendo un completo misterio. Por último, el Prof. B. E. Durante cita en su bibliografía ésta de Trento cuando se refiere a la obra de Gazola, bien pudiendo ser nuestra edición la primera, aunque no nos atrevemos a asegurarlo. En cualquier caso, tanto en la edición veneciana como en esta trentina se incluye la misma introducción, escrita por "un iluminado" y en la que puede leerse sobre los discursos: "después de la muerte de su autor, me he propuesto sacarlos a la luz".· Libro in italiano

        Trivia: or the Art of Walking the Streets of London [Large-Paper Copy]

      London: printed for Bernard Lintott, at the Cross-Keys between the Temple-Gates in Fleetstreet , [1716]. First Edition. Morocco. Fine. First Issue, large-paper copy (engraved headpiece on p. 1 depicts a street scene, not a phoenix, with elaborate engraved ornaments, not printer's ornaments, on pp. 21 and 53.) of John Gay's mock imitation of Virgil's Georgics. 8vo: [4],80,[12]pp. Full maroon morocco by Riviere, spine in six compartments divided by raised bands and lettered in gilt, renewed marbled end papers, plain paper fly leaves, all edges gilt. Lintott printed 2000 ordinary copies and a further 250 on fine paper, of which our copy is one. A Dublin edition and three other London editions appeared the same year. Fine. Hayward 142. Foxon G82 (fine-paper). Ashley II, p. 135. Rothschild 914 (the statement in Haywood, that "there are two leaves, G7 and G8, blank and genuine, is incorrect"). Bowyer Ledgers 281. Faber, p. 57. Dearing (ed), John Gay. Poetry and Prose 546. Trivia (after the goddess of streets, not the modern meaning, of trifles or unimportant matters) takes Virgil's Georgics as an ironic model for a mock account of outdoor life in London to satirise the noise, stench and danger of contemporary life on its streets. "Though there had been imitations of Virgil's didactics, there had been nothing of the scope, nor any that had hit upon the real idea, of Trivia: to imitate in mock, not just one or another of Virgil's prescriptions, but the entire work." (Dearing). "Gay's satiric thrust is aimed both at idle aristocratic Londoners of the day, at one extreme of the class system, and at loud and aggressive labourers at the other. The playful irony that runs through the poem is intended to appeal to educated readers, who would appreciate the poet's witty allusions to the classics. Gay treats London's streets as a mock parallel to Virgil's farm in the Mantuan countryside, contrasting the contemporary foot-traveller in London, struggling against his surroundings, with Virgil's rural farmer in full accord with his."

      Amsterdam: Apud Rod. & Gerh. Wetstenios,. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1716. First Edition. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; 12 folding engraved plates. [22], 401, [2] pages, title printed in red and black with engraved vignette, including engraved allegorical frontispiece. 4to, 239x197 mm, modern tan leatherette. Occasional minor browning, dampstain in upper outer corner of last few plates. Contemporary signature of Fr. Justinianus Klug. First edition. "An early contribution to the calculus of variations. The author was professor at Padua and Leningrad and took part on Leibnitz's side in the question of 'vis viva.' There is a description of Hermann's thermometer, which was an improvement on Amonton's air thermometer and not affected by atmospheric pressure"--Babson supplement, page 88. Middleton, page 108. PROVENANCE-Astronomy and Science Books from the Collection of Martin C. Gutzwiller. NOTES: Famous first text-book on 'theoretical mechanics' based on the Leibnitian calculus, uncommon. Bound in contemporary vellu, (somewhat stained, upper caver shafed). - "This textbook concerned advanced mechanics in the modern sense and was considered an important work, very favorably reviewed by Leibniz himself in the Acta Eruditorum." (Fellmann). Jakob Hermann (1678-1733) was a mathematician who worked on problems in classical mechanics. He is the author of the famous Phoronomia, an early treatise on Mechanics. In 1729, he proclaimed that it was as easy to graph a locus on the polar coordinate system as it was to graph it on the Cartesian coordinate system. However, una vergota. He appears to have been the first to show that the Laplace-Runge-Lenz vector is a constant of motion for particles acted upon by an inverse-square central force. Hermann was born and died in Basel. He received his initial training from Jacob Bernoulli, who taught of him as his best student and graduated with a degree in 1695. He became a member of the Berlin Academy in 1701. He was appointed to a chair in mathematics in Padua in 1707 (by recommendation of Leibniz) , but moved to Frankfurt an der Oder in 1713, and thence to St. Petersburg in 1724. Finally, he returned to Basel in 1731 to take a chair in ethics and natural law. - "In fact, while in Padua, Hermann lectured on the standard topics of the day, namely classical geometry, mechanics, optics, hydraulics, and gnomonics. However, his work with other scientists was almost entirely devoted to understanding, developing and applying methods in the infinitesimal calculus. It was while he was in Padua that Hermann did most of the work on his most famous book, the Phoronomia, which is a text on mechanics. Although he began writing the book in 1709, it was not published until 1716, three years after he left Italy, and we will delay a discussion of the contents of this important work until a little later in this biography. Hermann worked in mechanics and studied the 'inverse problem' where one has to determine the orbit from a knowledge of the law of force. He proposed the term 'phoronomia' in 1716 for the topic which was sometimes called 'rational mechanics' and is now called 'theoretical mechanics'. This appears in the title of his important book Phoronomia, sive de viribus et motibus corporum solidorum et fluidorum libri duo (1716). Hermann's contribution to dynamics is described in these terms by Guicciardini: 'He belonged to the Basel school headed by the Bernoullis and, sharing their methodology, made important contributions to the analytical treatment of dynamics. However, he also leaned towards Newton and, on many occasions, preferred to deal with dynamical problems in terms of geometry. The Phoronomia ... Is devoted to the dynamics of solid and fluid bodies and covers many problems dealt with by Newton in the first two books of the 'Principia'. In the preface, Hermann declares his intention of adhering to geometrical methods, since these seem to him more suitable for beginners. However, his knowledge of calculus is evident in the way in which he deals with infinitesimals. Hermann's 'Phoronomia' is indeed representative of the process of transition that transformed dynamics in the first decades of the 18th century. (N Guicciardini. An episode in the history of dynamics. Jakob Hermann's proof (1716-1717) of Proposition 1, Book 1, of Newton's Principia, Historia Mathematica 23 (2) (1996) , 167-181). - Another important innovation in Phoronomia is discussed by Middleton: "The beginning of the kinetic theory of gases is usually assigned to the year 1738, when Daniel Bernoulli's 'Hydrodynamica' appeared at Strasbourg. The famous tenth section of this book pursued some of the consequences of the assumption that 'elastic fluids' consist of innumerable tiny particles in rapid motion. (However an) earlier attempt dates from 1716, and is to be found in the 'Phoronomia' of Bernouilli's compatriot Jacob Hermann. .... For us the importance of Hermann's chapter XXIV is that it is, as far as I know, the first attempt to deal mathematically with the relations between heat and motion. The intuition that the speed of the particles must be squared is especially noteworthy, but perhaps not more so than the assumption that their speeds will not all be the same, so that an average must be taken. (W. E. Knowles Middleton, Jacob Hermann and the Kinetic Theory, British Journal for the History of Science 2 (3) (1965) , 247-250).

        A Discourse Concerning Treasons, and Bills of Attainder.

      1716 - Learned 1716 Defense of Attainder [West, Richard (d. 1726)]. A Discourse Concerning Treasons, and Bills of Attainder. London: Printed for J. Roberts, 1716. [iv], 111 pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Some soiling to title page and verso of final leaf. "By Mr. West" in fine early hand to title page, interior otherwise fresh. * First edition. One of the most controversial and feared powers of parliament, attainder was the extinction of the civil rights and powers of people convicted of treason or other grave felony. Its principal consequences were the forfeiture and escheat of lands and disqualification from holding, inheriting or transmitting land, either directly or through descent. Especially popular during the Reign of Henry VIII, bills of attainder were usually employed to punish persons who had displeased the king. (Mostly abolished in 1870, they were still applied to outlaws until 1932, when they were abolished altogether.) Their use as an arbitrary tool of reprisal caused widespread resentment. West appreciates this resentment, but argues that bills of attainder are justifiable in certain situations and defends their use. English Short-Title Catalogue T31938.

Lintott printed 2000 ordinary copies and a further 250 on fine paper, of which our copy is one. A Dublin edition and three other London editions appeared the same year. Fine. Hayward 142. Foxon G82 (fine-paper). Ashley II, p. 135. Rothschild 914 (the statement in Haywood, that "there are two leaves, G7 and G8, blank and genuine, is incorrect"). Bowyer Ledgers 281. Faber, p. 57. Dearing (ed), John Gay. Poetry and Prose 546. Fine ¶ Trivia (after the goddess of streets, not the modern meaning, of trifles or unimportant matters) takes Virgil's Georgics as an ironic model for a mock account of outdoor life in London to satirise the noise, stench and danger of contemporary life on its streets. "Though there had been imitations of Virgil's didactics, there had been nothing of the scope, nor any that had hit upon the real idea, of Trivia: to imitate in mock, not just one or another of Virgil's prescriptions, but the entire work." (Dearing). "Gay's satiric thrust is aimed both at idle aristocratic Londoners of the day, at one extreme of the class system, and at loud and aggressive labourers at the other. The playful irony that runs through the poem is intended to appeal to educated readers, who would appreciate the poet's witty allusions to the classics. Gay treats London's streets as a mock parallel to Virgil's farm in the Mantuan countryside, contrasting the contemporary foot-traveller in London, struggling against his surroundings, with Virgil's rural farmer in full accord with his."

        Histoire de la decouverte et de la conquete du Perou. Traduite de l'Espagnol...par S.D.C.

      La compagnie des libraires, 1716. Early French printing of this very successful Peruvian history, which went through numerous editions in languages including Spanish, Italian, Dutch, German, and English. Zárate arrived in Peru as part of the retinue of the first viceroy, and served there from 1543 until 1548. His work was first printed in its original Spanish in 1555, but did not appear in French until 1700; the present translation was done by S. de Broë, Seigneur de Citry et de la Guette. The first volume is illustrated with an oversized folding map and fourteen engraved plates, including the well known depiction of a nattily dressed European gentleman, reclining on a raft-like cushion, borne across a stream by two Indians. Married set: The two contemporary bindings are similar but not identical; both are of mottled leather, one more coarsely grained (and acid-etched) than the other, while one has floral and the other pomegranate motifs gilt-stamped in spine compartments. The match was made by a previous, Spanish-speaking collector, who has left pencilled notes in Spanish in both volumes.

        Comitatus principalis Tirolis in quo Episc. Tridentino et Brixensis.

      Homann Johann Baptist, Norimberga, 1716. Incisione su rame di dimensioni 47x56 cm. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. Carta raffigurante il territorio tirolese contenuta in "Grosser Atlas über die ganze Welt" dell'incisore ed editore Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724). L'impianto rimane quello maginiano, da cui derivano le consuete inesattezze (una valle inesistente riportata a nord della Val di Non e un lago immaginario in Valsugana). Interessante, in basso a destra, l'elaborata composizione che accompagna il titolo: in essa in primo piano tre figure in costume d'epoca (un cacciatore, un minatore e un vendemmiatore), sullo sfondo una veduta di Covelo che si rifà probabilmente a quella realizzata da Bodenehr negli stessi anni. Scheda bibliografica tratta da "Il territorio trentino-tirolese nell'antica cartografia" di Gino Tomasi, scheda n. 54.

[Et] 16-96 pages, 20 planches repliées, demi-veau blond moderne, dos l'imitation, à faux nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, Édition originale, rare, de cet ouvrage important du constructeur d'instruments Johann Gottlieb Hertel (1683-1743), sur le meulage et le polissage des lentilles et sur les instruments optiques. Il contient la description de nombreux microscopes, dont celui de sa conception ; l'objet était muni de plusieurs nouvelles fonctions, dont un micromètre, un miroir plan et, ce qui en fit la renommée, une platine à chariot (mechanical stage). Il est reproduit sur une grande planche gravée par Winckler d'après Hertel (pl. 18) : la platine à chariot permettait une plus grande précision dans la mise au point, en évitant le tremblement de la main et le déplacement mal aisé du tube volumineux du microscope. Il suffisait désormais d'ajuster les différents degrés à l'aide de trois clefs sur l'avant de la boîte, permettant l'élévation de la platine et sa rotation sur son propre axe. Seuls un ou deux exemplaires du microscope de Hertel ont été conservés. Harald Moe, Story of the Microscope, pp. 33 et suiv. À la suite : troisième édition des Nouvelles remarques (Neue Anmerckungen) de Leutmann, comprenant des corrections inédites. Ce livre rare, publié pour la première fois en 1719, rend compte des améliorations techniques dans meulage de lentilles destinées aux instruments optiques, microscopes, camera obscura et micromètres : il décrit également plusieurs objets de sa propre conception et fait part de théories diverses sur la vision et la perspective. Johann Georg Leutmann (1667-1736) fut professeur de mécanique et d'optique à l'Académie de Saint-Pétersbourg. Textes en caractères gothiques, titres en rouge et noir.
