        Phoronomia, sive de viribus et motibus corporum solidorum et fluidorum libri duo.

      Amsterdam: Apud Rod. & Gerh. Wetstenios, 1716. First edition of the first textbook on theoretical mechanics based on the Leibnizian calculus, important for containing the first published discussion of the kinetic theory of gases. "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 in DSB). "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 Bernoulli'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" (Knowles Middleton). "In 1716, the Swiss mathematician Jakob Hermann (1678-1733) published his book on theoretical mechanics, Phoronomia, in which he proposed the first definite measure of the heat of molecular motion. In Proposition LXXXV he wrote: Calor, caeteris paribus, est in composite ratione ex densitate corporis calidi, & duplicata ratione agitationis particularum ejusdem (Heat, in bodies of similar composition, is in the composed ratio of the density of the hot body and the square of the agitation of its particles), in other words, for the first time it was being suggested that the pressure is proportional to the density and the mean square velocity of the molecules" (Wisniak). Jakob Hermann (1678-1733) received his initial training from Jacob Bernoulli, 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 (on the 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 up a chair in ethics and natural law. "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 ... "Hermann held his post in Padua until his contract expired on 28 April 1713. While in Padua he had asked Leibniz's advice about moving to a university in another country and Leibniz had suggested a position in Frankfurt-an-der-Oder, but advised Hermann to see out the six year contract he had signed with Padua. Although he had a very successful career in Italy, Hermann seems to have found the fact that he was a Protestant in a Roman Catholic country somewhat difficult and, of course, Germany presented a religious environment much more to his liking. After leaving Padua in April, he went to Vicenza where he lived at the home of Giovanni Checozzi (1691-1756) and Sebastiano Checozzi (1693-1719) until June, after which he went first to Basel and subsequently to Frankfurt-an-der-Oder to take up his new appointment. He spent eleven years in Frankfurt-an-der-Oder, again a position which, as we have explained, was largely due to Leibniz's recommendation. But in 1724 Peter the Great called him to Russia to found, together with a number of others, the St. Petersburg Scientific Academy. He went to Russia in 1725, meeting Christian Goldbach in Königsberg while on the journey, and held a chair of higher mathematics in the St. Petersburg Academy until 1731 ... "In 1726, the St. Petersburg Academy began to publish a journal under the title Commentarii Academiae Petropolitanae. The journal was launched with an article by Hermann taking pride of place. Leonhard Euler arrived at the Academy in 1727. This was a difficult time since, following the death of Catherine, Peter II had become tsar at the age of twelve. There was political turmoil which had a serious affect on the work of the Academy which was close to collapse. Hermann worked at the Academy through these difficult years until, with the death of Peter II in 1730, the political situation stabilised. He had wanted to return to Basel, however, and had been appointed to the chair of ethic and natural law there in 1727. He had a substitute carry out the duties involved until his contract in St Petersburg came to an end in 1731 at which time he returned to Basel to take up the chair he had formally held for four years. He had hoped that a chair of mathematics would become vacant in Basel before his contract at the St. Petersburg Academy came to an end but this did not happen. "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) ... "An example of Hermann's approach is illustrated by looking at how he proved Kepler's area law. This had been proved by Newton in the Principia by using an intuitive limiting geometrical process. Hermann, however, gave a proof in the Phoronomia in terms of differentials. Although his notation was rather different from modern notation, and not particularly easy to understand, Hermann reworked the same ideas into a notation which is essentially that used today and sent his new version of the proof to John Keill who published it in Journal litéraire in 1717" (MacTutor). "The complexity of the process of mathematization of dynamics is particularly evident in transitional figures, such as Jakob Hermann (1678-1733). 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. His methodology is thus quite eclectic ... Hermann's main work is Phoronomia, which, written during his Italian period, was published in Amsterdam in 1716. This work 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 [pp. vii-viii]. 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" (Guicciardini).

        Relaçam dos progressos das armas portuguezas no Estado da India, no anno de 1713. Sendo Vice-Rey, e Capitam General do mesmo Estado Vasco Fernandes Cesar de Menezes. Parte I.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Pascoal da Sylva, 1716. - Parts I-III only (of 4). 4°, disbound. Woodcut monogram on title page. Woodcut headpieces, tailpiece, and initials. Good to very good condition. 22 pp., (1 l.). *** Second edition of this first part, reprinted (according to Innocêncio) without acknowledgment from Relação dos successos e gloriosas acções militares obradas no Estado da India, ordenadas e dirigidas pelo Vice-rei e Capitão general d'aquelle Estado Vasco Fernandes Cesar de Menezes, Lisbon, 1715, by Antonio Rodrigues da Costa. Freire de Monterroyo Mascarenhas anonymously published 3 sequels to it. Parts 2 and 3 are included with in this set; the fourth, Lisbon: Paschoal da Silva, 1716, is not present. A promised fifth part never appeared.Part 1 includes a lengthy, detailed account of the viceroy's reponse to a rebellion by the rajah of Canará, south of Goa. A fleet under José Pereyra de Brito sailed to Cumutá (Canará's best port) and several other fortresses and harbors, leaving a swath of destruction behind. Only 12 Portuguese died in battle, but Pereyra de Brito fell ill and died back in Goa. Included here is a poem in his memory, as well as 3 poems to the viceroy (one of them an anacrostic).Also in this part is an account of the expedition against the fleet of Angria, a powerful pirate operating out of Culabo (near Chaul, pp. 19-20). Angrià was defeated with heavy losses and the Portuguese blockaded his ships into the harbor at Culabo for at least 3 months. The Angria dynasty, established in the 1690s by Kanhoji Angre (d. 1729), is variously regarded as a family of pirates who grew wealthy by plundering British, Dutch, and Portuguese merchant ships, or as naval commanders of the Maratha Confederacy who were precursors of India?s effort to drive out the British. They usually plied their trade off the west coast of India. (One of the Angria family makes a guest appearance on the Brethren Court in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World?s End.)Also in this part, in lesser detail, are accounts of the Portuguese expeditions against the Sunda (near Goa) and an offensive against Arab ships in the neighborhood of Goa (pp. 20-22).Vasco Fernandes César de Meneses, 1º Conde de Sabugosa, was viceroy of India from 1712 to 1717, when he returned to Portugal. Portuguese India was in decline when he arrived. His rapid counterattack to the rebellions by the rajahs of Canará and Sunda led to the quick surrender of both rajahs. He also sent a fleet of 15 ships to attack the Indian pirate Angriá, defeating him at the port of Culabo. The Grand Moghul ceded to Portugal the territory of Pondá. In 1720 he was named viceroy of Brazil, holding the position for 15 years and establishing the Academia dos Esquecidos, among whose members was ths historian Sebastião da Rocha Pita.The author (1670-1760?), a native of Lisbon, began his studies in Portugal and extended them for 10 years, beginning in 1693, by traveling throughout Europe to study its politics and languages. Back in Portugal, he served from 1704 to 1710 as a cavalry captain in the War of the Spanish Succession. When the war ended he began to publish the Gazeta de Lisboa, of which he remained editor for more than 40 years. He also published numerous pamphlets such as this one, on current events.*** Innocêncio IV, 345; on the first edition of the first part see I, 258. JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books 716/2.

      Nella Stamperia Di Sua Altezza Reale. Per Jacopo Guiducci e Santi Franchi 1716 - FIRST ITALIAN EDITION, with 7 folding engraved plates and 1 smaller on different paper (not numbered), numerous bold woodcut decorations, plates a bit browned, pp. [xvi], 162, [2], large 8vo, contemporary green vellum, spine gilt in compartments, russet morocco lettering piece, shelf number on foot of spine, overlapping fore-edges, front joint cracking, good. The first translation of Hauksbee's 1709 'Physico-Mechanical Experiments' (which was 'Sold only at the Author's House'), and in fact the second edition of the text: Henry Guerlac in DSB points out that this edition was the one chiefly read in France, and the one used by the pioneer electrician C.F. de Cisternay Duffay. A French translation did not appear until 1754. In the main article Guerlac describes Hauksbee's experiments, and the 'unique collaboration between the venerable dean of English science [i.e. Newton] and the vigorous, gifted experimenter. From Newton, Hauksbee came to understand the theoretical import of some of his discoveries; and for his part the older man relied on Hauksbee's practiced hands to test some of his conjectures. What particularly interested Newton we learn from the changes he made during this period in new editions of his principal works, the Opticks and the Principia.' 'Hauksbee's important experiments on electroluminescence, static electricity, and capillarity, described in the present wok, mark the beginning of sustained experimentation in the field of electricity' (Norman 1020). The anonymous Proemio (by the translator) praises Boyle and Newton, and explains that the motive of the translation is the inspiration of further researches. A scarce book, and an attractive copy.

Bibliotheca Walleriana 10782a with 8 plates only and also lacking part VI. The latter was printed in Skara in 1718 and is exceedingly rare. Part V with parallell texts in Swedish and Latin. There are variants of the preliminary pages for part I. The original title and foreword cover four pages, but an eight-page variant with an additional index for the four first parts was also printed and was meant to replace the original, shorter version. In this copy, both variants are present, the original one being loosely added. "Dædalus hyperboreus" was published by the precursor to Vetenskapssocieteten, Collegium curiosorum, through Emanuel Swedberg, raised to the nobility as Swedenborg, who also has written most of the texts in this publication, which are often based on the inventions, observations and experiments of his teacher Christopher Polhem. Among Swedenborg's own papers are his "Utkast til en machine at flyga i wädret" [An outline for a flying machine] on pp. 80-83. Furthermore, Lars Roberg and Johan Vallerius each contributed a text. The rare and interesting work, which has been described as Sweden's first scientific journal, was discontinued due to a lack of subscribers. It was reissued as a facsimile in Vetenskapssocietetens minnesskrift at the bicentennial in 1910. Vetenskapssocieteten later resumed publishing a periodical work when its "Acta" (in Latin) was founded in 1720. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Chirurgia Curiosa ...

      Frankfurt - Leipzig: Michael Rohrlachs seel. Wittib 1716, 4, 8 Bll., 746 pp., 23 Bll., mit einem zweifarbigen Titelblatt und 14 Kupfertafeln, im Pergamenteinband der Zeit wie immer Papier bedingt teilweise etwas gebräunt, feines Exemplar. Seltene, dritte und unveränderte Auflage, der zuerst 1699, und dann 1706 erschienen großen Sammlung von "Matthaei Gothofr. Purmanni, Chirurgi und Stadt-Artztes zu Breßlau, Herausgegebene Chirurgia Curiosa. Darinnen Ein jedweder Chirurgus nicht allein auffs gründlichste sehen und finden kan, was in die gantze Wund-Artzney vor künstliche Operationes, richtige Cur-Vortheile, bewährte Artztney-Mittel, leichte und geschwinde Hand-Griffe, gehören, sondern auch solche, durch und durch, mit sehr raren und sonderlichen Observationen bewähret wird. Alles in drey Theil und 73. Capitel abgetheilet, Und mit vielen darzu dienenden Kupffer-Tabellen und Vier Registern versehen". Purmann berichtet von Kopf bis Fuss - Von allen Operationen und Handwürckungen des Hauptes, Angesichtes und Halses, des ganzen Ober- und Unter-Leibes, und der äußeren Glieder, als Armen und Schenkel, und was dabey nöthig in acht zu nehmen.DER CHIRURG DES GROSSEN KURFÜRSTEN Aus Lüben in Schlesien, war Matthäus Gottfried Purmannn (1648-1711) einer der berühmtesten Wundärzte seiner Zeit. Als Militärarzt war er 9 Jahre in brandenburgischen Diensten. Dabei sammelte er in den vielen Feldzügen wertvolle chirurgische Erfahrungen. Besonders im pommerschen Krieg gegen die Schweden, namentlich 1677 vor Stettin in Bezug auf die schweren Verletzungen durch die gläsernen Granaten des Gegners. Der Friede von St.Germain beendete die Kriegshändel des Großen Kurfürsten. Purmann nahm seinen Abschied und wurde Stadtarzt in Halberstadt. Da er später in der kleinen, von der Pest dezimierten Stadt kein ausreichendes Auskommen fand, kaufte er 1684 eine Offizin in Breslau, wo er dann bis zu seinem Tode als hochgeachteter Stadtarzt wirkte. Eigentlich ohne wissenschaftliche Bildung, ein geschickter und mutiger Handwerkschirurg, erhielt er seine beste Ausbildung im Krieg, der Mutter der Chirurgie. Die deutsche Chirurgie verdankt ihm viel. So die erste Transfusion (1668 mit Lammblut. Er erprobte die Infusion an sich selbst und hatte bis 1684 schon 40 Trepanationen ausgeführt, wobei er die Knochenspäne mit einem Röhrchen fortblies. Während die Kunst der Plastischen Chirurgie bei seinen Zeitgenossen weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten war, gibt Purmann ausführliche Hinweise zur Transplantation und zur Wiederherstellungschirurgie. Sehnenverletzungen der Hand band er mit in Alkohol konservierten Darmsaiten zusammen. Ein Aneurysma hat er totalexstirpiert und bei der Behandlung der Bauchbrüche verwendete er die innere Naht des Bruchsackes ohne Kastration, er praktiziert den Kaiserschnitt an der Lebenden, die Tracheotomie, ferner berichtet er über Anheilung einer fast ganz abgehauenen Ohrmuschel, deren Wundflächen zuerst "geritzet", und dann mit einem Heftpulver bestreut und mit Heftpflaster befestigt wurden, etc. Ein Pionierwerk deutscher Chirurgie!

        Chirurgische Schriften, darinnen nicht allein alle Chirurgische Hand-Griffe, sondern auch die Ursachen der Krankheiten des Menschlichen Leibes auf das deutlichste angewiesen werden. In zweyen Theilen.

      Nun aber aus dem Lateinischen ins Teutsche übersetztet duch Johannem Scultetum. - Nürnberg, J.D.Tauber, 1716, 4, (44), 381, (11) + 358, 21, (18) pp., Frontispiz u. 9 doppelblattgrosse Kupferstichtafeln, Halbpergameinteinband. "Fabricius describes the extraction of teeth, showing good pictures of forceps. He also refers to the filling of teeth with gold leaves." Prinz DIE DEUTSCHE AUSGABE = EIN RARISSIMUM Seltene deutsche Ausgabe eines Klassikers der Chirurgie! Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (1537-1619), ein Schüler Fallopius', war einer der größten Anatomen und ein berühmter Renaissance-Chirurg. Er baute auf eigene Kosten das prachtvolle anatomische Theater in Padua, das noch heute zu besichtigen ist. Er war der Lehrer des jungen Harvey und hat ihm entscheidende Anregungen (Venenklappen) zu seiner großen Entdeckung vermittelt. Die einzige Abbildung in Harveys berühmter Schrift über den Blutkreislauf stammt aus einem anatomischen Werk seines Meisters. Durch den Einfluß des Fabricius wurde Padua zur berühmtesten Medizinerschule Europas. Seine "Opera chirurgica" war für lange Jahre und für viele Chirurgengenerationen eine Fundgrube praktischen Wissens. Im 1.Teil des vorliegenden Werkes beschreibt der Autor die krankhaften Geschwülste, Fisteln, heissen und kalten Brand, die Hernien, Bauch- und Thoraxwunden, sowie ausführlich Frakturen und Luxationen, etc. Im 2.Teil behandelt er die chirurgischen Operationen in der alten Ordnung "a capite ad calcem" - vom Kopf bis Fuß. Von der Technik der Trepanation über Tracheotomie und Steinschnitt bis hin zu orthopädischen und unfallchirurgischen Interventionen werden alle praktizierten Eingriffe geschildert. Berühmt ist das Buch auch wegen seiner sehr schönen Abbildungen. Viele heute noch gebräuchliche Instrumente sind in ihrer Frühform beschrieben und abgebildet. Besonders interessant sind die beiden ganzseitigen Abbildungen jener Vereinigung verschiedener orthopädischer Apparate, durch welche die Gelenke des menschlichen Körpers festgestellt oder bewegt werden können. Am Ende unseres Werkes wird dieser "Chirurgische Küraß" ausführlich beschrieben. Diese deutsche Ausgabe, in der Übersetzung des Joh. Scultetus, ist selten. Wie alle volkssprachlichen Werke fanden auch die deutschen Editionen bei den Gelehrten nicht immer Anerkennung und erschienen deshalb in vergleichsweise kleinen Auflagen. Im Gebrauch zerschlissen, sind gute Exemplare heute fast unauffindbar. Gegenüber den weit verbreiteten lateinischen Editionen sind deutsche Ausgaben sehr viel wertvoller. Nur diese Ausgaben öffnen dem heutigen Leser die ganze Welt der damaligen Medizin auf eine angenehme "Lesart". Ein Quellenwerk, das Gurlt in seiner Geschichte der Chirurgie auf 35 Druckseiten beschreibt. Krivatsy NLM-Cat. no.3820 Hirsch-H. II, 461 DSB IV, 507 Leonardo, Lives of Master Surgeons, 559-61 Zimmermann-Veith, Great ideas in the history of surgery, 230-238 Bick, Source book of orthopedics, 43-44 Zeis 9,38,146,151.

        The Whole Duty of Man According to the Law of Nature.

By that Famous Civilian Samuel Puffendorf, Professor of the Law of Nature and Nations, In the University of Heidelberg, And in the Caroline University, Afterwards Counsellor and Historiographer to the King of Sweden, And to his Electoral Highness of Brandenburg. Now Made English. With the Notes of Mr. Barbeyrac, And Many Other Additions and Amendments; And an Index of the Matters, Not in Any Former Impression. By Andrew Tooke, M A. Professor of Geometry in Gresham-Colledge. London: Printed for B. Tooke at the Middle-Temple-Gate, 1716. [xlviii], 387, [17] pp. Title page preceded by one-page publisher catalogue. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary speckled calf, lettering piece, gilt-edged raised bands and gilt ornaments to spine. A few minor nicks to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, minor chipping to spine ends, joints starting at ends, corners bumped and lightly worn, hinges cracked. Moderate toning to text, slightly heavier in places, dampstaining and inkstains to margins of a few leaves, a few other leaves have light foxing. Early owner signature to front pastedown, interior otherwise clean. $500. * Fourth English-language edition. First published in 1672 in Latin as De Officio Hominis et Civis, this is a synopsis of Pufendorf's De Jure Naturae et Gentium, a landmark work that proposed a thorough system of private, public, and international law based on natural law. Beginning with a consideration of fundamental legal ideas and their various divisions, Pufendorf proceeds to a discussion of the validity of customs, the doctrines of necessity and innate human reason. It is significant in part because it develops principles introduced by Grotius and Hobbes. Unlike Hobbes, Pufendorf argued that peace, not war, was the state of nature, and he proposed that international law was not restricted to Christendom.

Early ink initials in corner of each title margin, spine extremities worn, with slight cracking to a couple joints, one label wanting; internally slightly tanned but crisp and very good. First and only edition, it would appear, of this compilation for popular reading, as evidenced by the emphasis placed on the accounts of final words and executions (and modes for same) rather than on legal subtleties. The imprint advertises copies in both sheep and calf, available at different prices, and it would appear the early owner opted for the cheaper route for the second volume. ESTC N6760.

        Jüdisches Ceremoniel, oder Beschreibung dererjenigen Gebräuche, welche die Jüden sowol inn- als ausser dem Tempel, bey allen und jeden Fest-Tägen, im Gebet, bey der Beschneidung, bey Hochzeiten, Auslösung der Erst-Geburt, im Sterben, bey der Begräbnüß und dergleichen, in acht zu nehmen pflegen. Nunmehro aber bey dieser neuen Auflage mit accuraten Kupfern versehen [.] von Sebastian Jacob Jungendres.

      Nürnberg, Peter Conrad Monath, 173[0?]. - 4to. (10), 226, (26) pp. Title page printed in red and black. With engraved frontispiece (J. G. Puschner del et sc.), engr. separate double-page-sized title, and 28 double-page-sized engraved plates. Contemp. half vellum with ms. spine title; all edges coloured blue. A later edition of Kirchner's important manual of Jewish ceremonies and rites, first published in Jauer in 1716 (while Jungendres's expanded and well-illustrated edition first appeared in 1724). The plates show Rosh Chodesh, the Sabbath, Passover, Shavuot, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Chanukkah, Purim, circumcision, engagement, marriage, divorce, burial, etc., as well as liturgical objects, costumes, and rooms. The Polish-born Kirchner had been a rabbi in Fürth before converting to Protestantism in 1713, giving up his birth name Gumpel Mardochai (though Jungendres's preface suggests that he later returned to his old faith). Many of his descriptions are representative of the stricter Polish rites, rather than those observed by the more lenient German community. The engravings by the Nuremberg artist Johann Georg Puschner (commissioned by Jungendres) depict scenes from the Jewish congregation and synagogue of Fürth. "Today most libraries offer merely the reprint published in 1974. This reproduces the Erlangen University Library's copy of an edition of which the exact year of printing is not known, as it is not fully printed, reading only '173.'. Thus, it is only known that another edition was produced in the 1730s - likely in 1730, and certainly in 1735" (cf. Herzig, p. 19). In the present copy, the year of printing has been completed by a contemporary hand to read "1739". Binding somewhat rubbed and stained; old library shelfmarks to flyleaf.

        The Vinegar Bible]: The Holy Bible containing the Old Testament and the New / Newly Translated out of the Original Tongues / And with the Former Translations diligently Compared and Revised. By his Majesties special Command . Printed by John Baskett (1716)

      Printed by John Baskett, Printer to [the] Kings most Excellent Majesty for Great-Britain and for [the] University, Oxford 1716 - Two volumes. Royal folios (measuring 55cm. in height, or 14.5" x 21.5"). The rarer of two known states (the other bearing a 1717 imprint): Volume 1 (Old Testament and Apocrypha) issued with the illustrated engraved title page engraved by John Sturt and dated 1716; and Volume 2 (New Testament) issued with an engraving of the Annunciation on the letterpress title page and dated 1716.A rare copy of the magnificent 'Vinegar Bible', in a presentation binding of black levant leather with the Royal Cypher of King George III (surmounted by a crown) stamped in gold in five compartments on the spines of each volume, and the Royal Arms (with "G.R. III" above the crown) embossed at the center of all four covers. Both volumes have early marbled endpapers and wove paper fly leaves, royal blue silk ribbons, all edges gilt. According to an early bookseller's description (tipped onto the front fly leaf): "this copy possesses even an additional interest beyond being the property of, and most likely often read by the Monarch, who expressed a hope 'That the time would come when every poor child in his dominions would be able to read the Bible.'" Whether such speculation is true might be subject to some skepticism, but we can only say that this is a presentation binding.Baskett's Bible is a landmark in English graphic art, celebrated both for the beauty of its typographical design and many Baroque engravings, and also for its many typographical errors, including the running headline of Luke, chapter 20, which prints: 'The parable of the vinegar,' instead of: 'The parable of the vineyard.' In addition to John Sturt, a copperplate engraver who ran one of the first drawing schools in England at St. Paul's Churchyard, other artists and engravers responsible for the illustrations include James Thornhill, one of the most important English exponents of Baroque decorative painting (and the first English-born artist to be knighted), Gerard and Michael Vandergucht, and the Frenchmen Louis Cheron and Louis du Guernier (both of whom lived and died in London).This copy of the Vinegar Bible was later owned by Claudia Wright Lea, the daughter of Delaware Governor Preston Lea, a prominent Quaker whose ancestors came to Pennsylvania with William Penn. She was an important collector of botany and horticulture books (now held at the University of South Carolina), and founder of the Garden Clubs of Aiken and South Carolina. She then donated it to a library, where it was kept locked away except for the occasional exhibit, and from whom we purchased it. Presentation plates are neatly tipped-in along one edge only at the gutter of the front free endpapers.The original leather binding is rubbed with scattered cracking and some scuffing to the spine backs and edges. Most of the original gilt is faded or tarnished, the boards have been at one time neatly re-jointed (visible only along the hinges), both boards of volume one are detached (neatly split between two leaves [A2 and A3] in Genesis, and two leaves [4Q2 and 4Q3] in the Apocrypha), and the front board of volume two is nearly detached. Else both volumes are overall very good, with a few early paper repairs, and one damaged leaf in the New Testament, where a bottom corner piece of missing text was neatly replaced with an early laid-paper sheet with the missing verses completed in manuscript.A handsome and exceedingly rare edition of this famous Bible, in the original presentation binding.

Quelques figures dans le texte. Cet ouvrage rassemble les réflexions et l'expérience de Jean-Baptiste de la Quintinie (1626-1688), célèbre jardinier et agronome français, qui abandonna la profession d'avocat pour se consacrer au jardinage. Il s'occupa des jardins de grands personnages de l'époque (Nicolas Fouquet, le prince de Condé, le duc de Montausier, Colbert). En 1670 Louis XIV le chargea de la direction de ses jardins fruitiers et potagers. Ensuite, pour cinq années, il se consacra à la création du nouveau potager du roi.

Il contribua également à la distinction entre les divers métiers spécialisés dans la création de jardin : jardiniers, fleuristes, botaniste, maréchais, etc. Épidermures légères, accroc à un mors, coins usés, infime trou de ver en tête d'un dos.

Bibliotheca Walleriana 10782a har bara 8 planscher och saknar som här häfte VI. Detta sjätte häfte trycktes i Skara 1718 och är extremt sällsynt. Häfte V med svensk och latinsk parallelltext. Titelbladet och förordet till häfte I finns i flera varianter, dels en ursprunglig, fyrsidig opaginerad variant av titelblad och inledning, dels en åttasidig dito som var tänkt att ersätta den förstnämnda och innehåller ett register till de fyra första häftena. Detta exemplar innehåller bägge varianterna, den ursprungliga är löst bifogad. "Dædalus hyperboreus" utgavs av Vetenskapssocietetens föregångare sällskapet Collegium curiosorum genom Emanuel Swedberg, adlad Swedenborg, som också skrivit det mesta i publikationen, ofta med utgångspunkt i hans läromästare Polhems uppfinningar, rön och försök. Bland Swedenborgs egna uppsatser märks hans "Utkast til en machine at flyga i wädret" på s. 80-83. Även Lars Roberg och Johan Vallerius bidrog med varsin uppsats. Det intressanta och sällsynta arbetet, som av Lindroth betecknas som "vårt lands första vetenskapliga tidskrift", lades ned i brist på prenumeranter. Den utgavs i faksimil i Vetenskapssocietetens minnesskrift vid tvåhundraårsjubileet 1910. Vetenskapssocieteten återupptog utgivningen av en periodisk skrift med sina "Acta" som började utkomma 1720 och skrevs på latin.

Popular garden book (and probably the most influential book in the history of pomology) by the leading French gardener of the seventeenth century. For more than 20 years, beginning in 1665, La Quintinie worked as gardener to Louis XIV, rising steadily with ever-expanding titles. The potager at Versailles, constructed from 1677 to 1683, is the most famous of the fruit and kitchen gardens he oversaw in all the royal houses to meet the needs of the court: asparagus in December and strawberries in April, as well as the King's favorite figs. This book, published posthumously by La Quintinie's son Michel, introduced his methods to a wide audience. Later editions, such as our copy, added to the directions for pruning and thinning out buds sections on melons and flowers, as well as advice on dealing with orange tress and La Quintinie's reflection on agriculture. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Severin, Jacque Quillau, imprimeur-juré-libraire, rue Galande, aux Armes de l'Université, , MDCCXVI [1716]. First Edition. 4to: xiv,298,[2]pp, with 35 (of 37) maps, plans and plates (18 of which are folding); ornamental engraved vignettes, and woodcut musical notation in the text (never bound in were the map of Détroit de le Maire, no. v, and the plate of Indiens en habits simples, no. ix); plate xvi was bound in twice). Contemporary calf, spine richly gilt in six compartments, brown leather lettering piece gilt, "Caissotti" in gilt script on upper board, all edges stained red, marbled end papers, red silk page marker. An exceptional, wide-margined copy, text, maps and plates fresh and clean, marred only by a stain in the gutter of first three leaves. Provenance: copper-engraved bookplate, "Il Cittadino / Carlo Giac. Caissotti." Sabin 25924. Borba de Moraes 328. Hill, p. 115. Leclerc 1736. Palau 94964. Gibson's Library, p. 128. First Edition of this classic in the literature of South American voyages of exploration. Frézier set sail in 1712 with a French commission to assess the strength of Spanish settlements on the Pacific coast and to revise existing charts. According to Hill, Frezier "brought back information of considerable geographical and scientific value" to later navigators, and his account is today appreciated for its keen observations of the customs, commerce, and natural history—including the cotton and strawberry plants—of Chile, Peru and Tierra del Fuego. (It's interesting to note that Frezier's surname was itself derived from fraise, the French for strawberry.) The chapters on Indian and Creole life include descriptions of costume and architecture, as well as musical instruments. The folding plans of cities visited are often enhanced by panoramic views, as in the case of Callao, Concepción, Valparaíso, La Serena, Salvador de Bahía, and Angra (Azores). Amongst the most important plates are the general map of the expedition, the Strait of Lemaire, Valdivia, Bahía de an Vicente, Santiago de Chile, Lima and Bahía de Todos los Santos. An immediate success, the work was soon translated into English and German and republished several times in the eighteenth century.

        [MANUSCRIPT LETTER] Louis XV forbids his subjects to conduct commerce in the South Seas

      Manuscript letter, single folio sheet, dated 16 February 1716, signed Louis (in the hand of Louis XV's secretary), countersigned by LouisPhélypeaux, Marquis de La Vrillière, Secretary of State, addressed to Cardin Le Bret, member of the parliament of Provence and nephew of the regent, the Duc d'Orléans, stating that a royal edict has been sent to the parliament of Provence 'which explains the circumstances in which merchants of my Kingdom must obtain passports from me, to which edict I append a declaration forbidding any of my subjects to conduct commerce in the South Seas'; the verso with address of Le Bret; the document is complete, legible and remarkably fresh, with original folds. In France, the period 1715-1723 is known as the Régence, during which time Philippe, Duc d'Orléans, was in charge of the country's affairs owing to the fact that Louis XV was still a minor. In 1716, when this letter was written, the War of the Spanish Succession had only recently ended, and a member of the French House of Bourbon (Philip V) was now on the Spanish throne. The royal edict alluded to in the present letter, ostensibly forbidding French subjects to conduct trade in the Pacific, was typical of French diplomacy towards Spain in the early part of the eighteenth century. It was designed to allay Spanish fears that its monopoly of the rich resources along the western seabord of the Americas - namely the silver mines of Mexico and Peru - was under threat from the French, but in reality the situation was quite different. While flattering the Spanish and officially appearing to discourage this type of trade, France turned a blind eye toward its own merchants rounding Cape Horn, and from the end of the seventeenth to well into the eighteenth century, French private companies, including the Compagnie de la Mer Pacifique (or Mer du Sud) and other private adventurers out of ports such as St Malo and La Rochelle, conducted many voyages to the west coast of the Americas. These merchants carried royal passports which described the purpose of their voyages as being non-commercial in nature - they were simply exploring or acquiring scientific knowledge. Paradoxically, these voyages proved so lucrative, resulting in massive volumes of silver bullion for the French coffers, that a genuine voyage of exploration in the Pacific was not carried out by the French until Bougainville (1766-69). Throughout this period, England, the new rival of France as a maritime superpower, adopted an official policy towards the Spanish similar to that of the French - one of non-interference with the Spanish trading empire on the Pacific seaboard of the Americas - and it was not until the voyages of Wallis, Carteret and Cook that it undertook serious exploration of the Pacific.
