The present catalogue was first published in 1716. When the supplement was completed in 1741 a newer and fuller titlepage was substituted in the copies then unsold, but still dated 1716. The supplement has a separate titlepage: Supplementum Catalogus librorum tam impressum quam manuscriptum Bibliothecae publicae Universitatis Lugduno-Batavae.

HERMANN, Jacob.
Apud Rod. & Gerh. Wetstenios, Amsterdam. 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 particula … [Click Below for Full Description]

Esclavage).
S.l.n.d. [Grenoble, 1716], in-4 de 4 pp. ; cartonnage bradel moderne. Edition provinciale. RarissimeManque à Wroth et Annam, qui mentionnent uniquement l'édition de Paris (n° 572) ; Maggs, The French colonisation of America, 88 (édition de Paris)."C'est ainsi que [la décision du Conseil de marine] de laisser aux maîtres la propriété des esclaves qu'ils envoient dans la métropole pour leur faire "apprendre quelque art et métier", ou qu'ils entendent garder à leur service au cours de leurs séjours dans le royaume, porte directement atteinte à un principe sur lequel Pontchartrain avait toujours refusé de transiger. A maintes reprises, celui-ci avait affirmé que les nègres "deviennent libres lorsqu'ils ont touché à la terre de France". Or, sur la proposition du maréchal d'Estrées, approuvée par le Conseil de Régence, il fut décidé en 1716 que les esclaves conserveraient leur statut dans le royaume, que tout ce qu'ils acquerraient "par leur industrie ou leur profession" appartiendrait à leurs maîtres, et que, en cas de décès de ces derniers, ils deviendraient la propriété de leurs héritiers. Il ne s'agit naturellement pas d'instituer l'esclavage sur "les terres de France". L'édit d'octobre 1716 interdit la vente ou l'échange des nègres dans la métropole, et spécifie qu'ils n'y resteront assujettis à leur condition que pour une durée limitée, dont les maîtres conviendront avec les gouverneurs des colonies : passé ce délai, l'esclave, s'il y prolonge son séjour, deviendra "entièrement libre". Mais, en dépit de ces précautions, la décision du Conseil condamne un principe que Pontc … [Click Below for Full Description]

FIRST EDITION. 12mo, 158 x 87 mms., pp. [viii], 127 [128 adverts; lacking the additional leaf of adverts], contemporary calf, early rebacked, title in gilt on spine; lacks half-title, small piece missing from lower margin of A1, corners a little worn. With a few contemporary annotations in the early pages of the volume, e. g., at Sect. X, page 10, "Be not beneficent for the Sake of Applause." Samuel Johnson described Browne's style in this work as "a tissue of many languages; a mixture of heterogeneous words, brought together from distant regions, with terms originally appropriated to one art, and drawn by violence into the service of another. He must, however, be confessed to have augmented our philosophical diction; and in defence of his uncommon words and expressions, we must consider, that he had uncommon sentiments, and was not content to express in many words that idea for which any language could supply a single term." A century or so later, Lytton Strachey commented that it was "like an elaborate and magnificent parody of the Book of Proverbs." Keynes 163.

Boileau-Despréaux. Nicolas
Geneve, Fabri & Barrillot, 1716. "XXVIII, 506; 426 S., 18 Bl. Braune Ganzlederbände der Zeit auf fünf Bünden mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln und reicher goldgeprägter Ornamentik; dreiseitiger Rotschnitt. Format: 25,5 x 20 cm." Werkausgabe des großen französischem Satirikers, Poeten und Vortragskünstlers Nicolas Boileau-Despréaux (1636 ? 1711). Boileau debütierte ab 1661 zunächst mit einer Reihe von Spottgedichten, die seine Popularität begründeten und ihm Zugang zu den Pariser Salons verschafften. Später, ab etwa 1668, wandte er sich stärker moralisierenden und philosophierenden Versepisteln zu, in denen er unter anderem Ludwig XIV verherrlichte. Die daraus resultierende Nähe zum Hof ? er durfte Ludwig persönlich vortragen und erhielt von diesem eine jährliche Pension ? ließ Boileau später gemeinsam mit seinem Kollegen Jean Racine (1639 ? 1699) sogar zum ?Historiographe du Roi?, zum offiziellen Hof-Chronisten aufsteigen. Die Bände enthalten nicht die manchen Exemplaren als Frontispizes beigebundenen Porträtdarstellungen des Autors, wohl aber 6 ganzseitige Kupferstich-Illustrationen zu Boileaus Werken. Ferner mit zahlreichen gestochenen, teils großformatigen Kapitel-Vignetten. "Kapitale der Bände sorgfältig (und unauffällig) unterfüttert. Die Bände ansonsten frisch und nicht berieben.
