        Paris, Histoire de l'Église du Japon

      François Montalant 1717 - 2 volumes. [28]+659+[11] pages with 4 plates and index; [10]+678+[6] pages with 4 plates (one folding) and index. Quarto (10" x 8") bound in half leather with raised spine bands in gilt lettering to spine over marbled boards. (Streit-Dindinger VI, 1418.) Second edition of a 1689 history of missions to Japan prefaced with a general account of the country. Jean Crasset was an ascetical writer, born at Dieppe, France, 3 January, 1618 and died at Paris, 4 January, 1692. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1638, became professor of humanities and philosophy, was director for twenty-three years of a famous sodality of men connected with the professed house of the Jesuits in Paris, and was also a successful preacher. Crasset is the author of many ascetical works, among which are: Methode d'oraison; Considérationes chrétiennes pour tous les jours de l'année; La chrétienne in soli tude; Dissertation sur les oracles des Sibylles, which was vigorously attacked; Entretiens pour la jeunesse. He also published in 1689 a Historie de l'église du japon which has been translated into several languages but which is considered inferior to that of Charlevoix. Crasset's history was scarcely original, for it was drawn in great part from the work which Father Solier had issued in 1627; he merely retouched the style and continued the narrative from 1624 to 1658. The objection is made that the work lacks precision, is heavy, and is crowded with details. The author attributed the origin of the persecution of 1597 to the imprudence of the friars in making their religious ceremonies public. There is a posthumous work of his entitled La foy victorieuse de l'infidélite et du libertinage. On 9 September, 1656, the Bishop of Orléans issued an interdict against him for having in one of his sermons charged several ecclesiastics with sustaining the propositions condemned by the Bull of Innocent X, Cum occasione (31 May, 1653). The interdict was removed in the following February. Condition: Nicely rebound in half leather. Contents toned and damp-stained, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary stamp on titles else a very good set.

        Erste Gründe der philosophischen Sitten-Lehre. Andere und vermehrte Auflage [with 'Erste Gründe der natürlichen Gottesgelahrheit nebst der philosophischen und theoretischen Abhandlung von der Stadt Gottes aus dem Lateinischen des Herrn Hofrath Darjes in das Deutsche übersetzet]. Jena: Christian Heinrich Cuno, 1755.

      - Second edition of a work by J.G. Darjes (1717–91) first published in 1750; a third edition followed in 1762 and a fourth in 1782. The appended translation from the Latin seems to be particularly rare, or at least very seldom recorded on library databases (WorldCat finds only 2 in Germany and 1 at Harvard). Kant had a copy of exactly this edition in his personal library (Warda, Immanuel Kants Bücher, X, 26). 'His peculiar name ‘Darjes’ resulted from the latinization of the old name of the family, von Bock (ram = Aries). In 1735, Darjes had great success as professor of philosophy in Jena . In his courses, he turned all rules upside down. Instead of dictating, he allowed his students to challenge anything he said. It is said that he had more than 10,000 auditors and that his students used to sit on the stairs in order to hear his courses, of which he held as many as six per day. The more Darjes looked at the foundations of Wolffian theory, the more he doubted. Wolff appeared to him full of contradictions and his system far from true. His polemic stance against Wolff became therefore progressively more explicit. We can also see the increasing influence of Crusius in this transformation. It seemed better to change his area of concern. Thus Darjes devoted himself to jurisprudence. When teaching natural law, he followed Hugo Grotius and Johann Jakob Lehmann rather than Wolff or Pufendorf. In 1744, he was appointed full professor of morality and politics. In 1750, he published the Erste Gründe der philosophischen Sitten-lehre, which caused a number of disputes and ran to as many as seven editions' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Large 8vo, engraved frontispiece, 416, [57], [iv], 204, [18] pp., contemporary boards quite rubbed, title-page printed in red and black, isolated contemporary annotations, internally very good.

I: Seltene erste selbständige deutsche Ausgabe (erstmals 1597 in Paris als "Opusculum physiologum & anatomicum" gedruckt), aus dem Lateinischen übersetzt von Christoph von Hellwig (1663-1721). "In 1595 Pineau demonstrated the vestigial foramen ovale in the adult heart, settling the question of the perviousness of the septum of the heart [...] [In 1597] he published this study in a frank treatise on virginity and the ways of losing it" (Garrison/M.). "The German edition was prohibited by the magistrates. The chief interest of the book now relates to the supposed parturition of the pubic bones during parturition [...] Pineau was a lithotomist and had the Collot family secret" (Osler). Zuvor 1626 als Teil der deutschen Übersetzung von Louise Bourgeois Boursiers "Hebammen Buch" erschienen. - II: Zweite deutsche Ausgabe von Deventers Hauptwerk "Operationes chirurgicae novum lumen exhibentes obstetricantibus" (EA Leiden 1701; zugleich in niederländischer Sprache), eines der wichtigsten Werke in der Geschichte der Geburtshilfe. "Gives the first accurate description of the female pelvis and its deformities, and the effect of the latter in complicating labour" (Garrison/M.). Van Deventer (1651-1724) würdigt hier erstmals völlig die Wichtigkeit des knöchernen Beckens, insbesondere der Beckenachse, für den Geburtsvorgang; musterhaft ist das Verfahren, das er den Hebammen bei natürlichen Geburten anempfiehlt. Erheblich verfeinert sind die Diagnose der abnormen Kindslagen sowie die Technik der geburtshilflichen Eingriffe, bei denen Deventer dem manuellen Verfahren gegenüber dem instrumentellen bis zur äußersten Grenze den Vorzug gab; dennoch bereicherte er letztere durch eine der wichtigsten Erfindungen in der Geburtshilfe überhaupt: die Geburtszange. "Deventer ist unstreitig der hervorragendste und wissenschaftlich gebildetste Geburtshelfer seiner Zeit, denn seine Forschungen waren nicht blos bahnbrechend, sondern bilden heute noch [...] die Basis, auf der die moderne Geburtshilfe ruht" (Hirsch). - Es fehlen die Kupfer 5, 10, 12 und 14; das Frontispiz und 2 weitere Kupfer mit größeren Ausrissen und Fehlstellen; mehrere Kupfer im Rand vom Beschnitt erfaßt (Verlust der rechten Rahmenlinie). - Aus der Sammlung des schwedischen Polarforschers und Mineralogen Gösta Bodman (1875-1960), als Meteorologe Teilnehmer der Schwedischen Antarktisexpedition 1901-04, mit seinem hübschen, darauf bezüglichen Exlibris (Pinguin vor Forschungsschiff) am vorderen Innendeckel.

Verey's most famous garden design was that of her own house, Barnsley House, near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. In 1970 she opened the garden for one day to the public for the National Gardens Scheme but eventually it was open 6 days per week to accommodate the 30,000 annual visitors. In 1984 when her husband David died, Rosemary Verey began designing gardens for American and British clients. Most notable are HRH the Prince of Wales, and Sir Elton John, Princess Michael of Kent, the Marquess of Bute and the New York Botanical Garden. See Wikipedia.

        Mahometanus dogmatice, et catechetice in lege Christi, Alcorano suffragante, instructus. Trnava (Nagyszombat), Friedrich Gall, 1717.

      1717. 4to. (22), 196, (2) pp., final blank f. With several decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces. Near-contemp. calfskin binding with gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. Only edition of this substantive anti-Ottoman pamphlet, a document of the late 17th and early 18th century religious and political upheavals in Eastern Europe, a theatre largely shaped by the Ottoman Empire. The Bulgarian author had survived Thököly's crushing of the Catholic-led revolt against Turkish rule in his native Chiprovets: "Krastyo Peikich, who had escaped to Hungary after the 1688 Tchiprovets uprising of Bulgarian Catholics and had become canon of Pecs in 1715, published his anti-Islamic 'Mahometanus dogmatice et catechetice in lege Christi' under the name Cristophorus Peichich in 1717 in Nagyszombat. In this book, Peikich advocated the right of his country to freedom; in the interest of a concentration of forces against the Turks he urged a rapprochement between the Eastern and Western Churches" (Kurucz/Szörényi, Hungaria litterata, Europae filia [Budapest 1985], p. 145). Kristóf Peichich (Karst Pejkic) served as Apolstolic Missionary, canon of Pecs, and abbot of St. George of Csanád. As he also wrote in Illyrian, Horanyi and Rotermund call him a Croat in error (cf. Jöcher V, 1793). - Old ownership to title page; insignificant browning. A prettily bound and well-preserved copy. Chauvin XII, p. 303, no. 1268. Hurter IV, 1055. Petrik II, 65. Zellinger 69, 17.

Good cop. Seconda edizione pubblicata lo stesso anno della prima francese di questo celeberrimo viaggio in Levante, opera del grande botanico e viaggiatore originario di Aix-en-Provence, Joseph Pitton de Tournefort. Il volume raccoglie le esperienze di viaggio dell'autore attraverso Grecia, Turchia, Armenia e Georgia passando per Creta e le Cicladi, Costantinopoli, la costa meridionale del Mar Nero, l'Armenia, la Georgia e rientrando poi dall'Asia Minore. Durante il viaggio, accompagnato dal botanico tedesco Andreas von Gundelsheimer (1668-1715), raccolse numerose specie di piante allora sconosciute. Destinato a diventare prete studiò presso i Gesuiti. Ma la morte di suo padre lo lasciò libero di seguire i suoi interessi personali, particolarmente nel campo della botanica alla quale si era appassionato fin da giovane. Si fece conoscere costruendo un erbario in Savoia e nel Delfinato (oggi proprietà del Museo nazionale di storia naturale di Francia con sede a Parigi). Intraprese gli studi di medicina a Montpellier e strinse amicizia con Pierre Magnol (1638-1715). Nel 1681, trascorse un anno nei Pirenei per studiarvi la flora. Un periodo difficile, si dice che dovesse nascondere i suoi soldi nel pane per sfuggire ai ladri. L'erbario che vi costituì era così ricco che Guy-Crescent Fagon (1638-1718) lo chiamò a Parigi per affidargli la sua cattedra di botanica al Jardin des Plantes (1683). I suoi corsi erano celebri e attiravano numerosi spettatori, anche dall'estero. Nel 1698 fece conoscere la flora parigina pubblicando il libro dal titolo Histoire des plantes qui naissent aux environs de Paris (Storia delle piante che nascono nei dintorni di Parigi). Su ordine del Re, partì alla ricerca di erbe nei Pirenei dove raccolse numerose specie. Tra il 1700 e il 1702, Tournefort viaggiò nelle isole greche: Creta e Cicladi. Visitò in seguito Costantinopoli, le coste del mar Nero, l'Armenia e la Georgia. Raccolse piante e annotò numerose osservazioni. In Grecia, tentò di ritrovare le piante descritte da Dioscoride ma ne riconobbe solo 400 circa. Durante il suo viaggio, fu accompagnato dal botanico tedesco Andreas von Gundelsheimer (1668-1715) e dal pittore Claude Aubriet (1651-1743). Il racconto del suo viaggio, Relation d'un voyage au Levant, fu pubblicato dopo la sua morte. Entrò nel 1691 all'Accademia delle scienze. Solo nel 1694 fece pubblicare la sua prima opera di botanica, Éléments de botanique (Elementi di botanica), con 435 disegni di Aubriet. La sua principale opera botanica è Institutiones rei herbariae (1700), traduzione della precedente in latino ad opera dello stesso Tournefort, dove egli classifica le piante seguendo la forma delle loro corolle, ma, più importante ancora, fa una chiara distinzione tra genere e specie, preparando così il terreno a Carl von Linné. Morì a Parigi a 52 anni, in piena salute, vittima di un banale incidente, nella via che porta oggi il suo nome: rue Tournefort (nel V arrondissement). Merita una citazione anche il De optima

Opera di Domenico Corradi D'Austria che si pronuncia sulla vexata quaestio espressa da Eustachio Manfredi che all'inizio del Settecento aveva scritto un appello affinche' il Reno fosse tolto dalle valli e condotto negli argini del Po. Corradi, infatti, fin dal 1716, si era interessato al progetto di sistemazione definitiva delle acque della Romagna, che avrebbero dovuto esser convogliate in un solo bacino. La proposta s'inseriva nella secolare questione sul corso del Reno, che gia' il duca Borso d'Este e poi Alfonso I avevano voluto far rifluire nel Po ma che poi aveva ripreso il suo corso in seguito a numerose inondazioni. Il progetto di Cassini (ripreso dal Guglielmini) di ricondurre il Reno nel Po di Lombardia trovo' la fiera opposizione di Ferrara, Mantova e Modena, che incaricarono vari studiosi, tra cui Corradi appunto, ma anche Zendrini, Ceva e Moscatelli, di sostenerne l'assurdita'. Il duca Rinaldo II d'Este si affido' pienamente a Corradi perche' dimostrasse la necessita' di una diversa sistemazione del corso del Reno, che comunque avrebbe dovuto sempre gettarsi in mare. ITA

        of the Nuremberg classical scholar Nikolaus Weber, with 51 entries by scholars, scientists, and artists of the time, including Andreas Celsius, Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr, and Christoph Jacob Trew. Nuremberg and Altdorf, 1717-1749.

      1717. Oblong 8vo. 179 ff. with 51 entries and Weber's autogr. note of ownership on fol. 2r. Contemp. brown calf with richly gilt spine and covers. Brocade endpapers. All edges gilt. Unique scholars' album of the philologist Nikolaus Weber (1699-1751), headmaster of the Nuremberg Holy Ghost school, with entries by scholars mainly based at the Universities of Nuremberg and Altdorf. One of the most important among the contributors to this volume, almost all of which are biographically recorded, is the Swedish astronomer Andreas Celsius (1701-44), who on 22 July 1733 penned these lines: "Problema: Unam eandemq[ue] theologiam et religionem per universum terrarum orbem propagare. - Resolutio: Doceatur ubiq[ue] gentium Philosophia certa et solida" (Problem: How to spread the same theology and religion throughout the entire world? - Solution: Teach all peoples a certain and solid philosophy). On behalf of the Swedish king, Celsius had visited the principal observatories of Europe in 1732/33 to form an opinion of the current developments in astronomy. His scientific "Grand Tour" had also led him to Nuremberg, where he had spent three months at the home of the astronomer Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (see below) and had regularly participated in the specialist discussions hosted by the physician Christoph Jacob Trew (see below). 1733 is also the year of Celsius's "316 Observationes de Lumine Boreali", the first comprehensive treatise on the Northern Lights, published by Endter in Nuremberg. That year, Celsius also performed the first exact geographical measurement of the town's dimensions. - Celsius's host Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677-1750), known for his 1750 "Atlas coelestis", contributed his entry many years before Celsius: on 17 July 1717, he dedicated a quotation from Seneca ("Animum sursum vocant initia sua", Epist. 79). The two opposite pages by Celsius and Doppelmayr are connected by a caption (by one of the two scientists): "Sic pagina jungit amicos" (Thus a page links friends). - Another important entry is that of the physician and botanist Christoph Jakob Trew (1695-1769), who had studied medicine in Altdorf and then undertook a three-year tour through Germany, Switzerland, France, and the Netherlands. In 1720 he settled in Nuremberg as a general practicioner and became a member of the most important scientific academies; his library, encompassing more than 34,000 volumes, was considered the greatest collection of naturalist literature of its time. No less important was Trew's autograph and correspondence collection with its natural-scientific focus, containing more than 19,000 letters by polymaths from the early Renaissance to Enlightenment (including Albrecht von Haller, Conrad Gesner, and Lorenz Heister). Today, Trew is frequently associated with his principal botanical work, "Plantae selectae" (1750-73). - For many entries, Weber later added the date of the contributor's death (if he outlived them), which in several cases offers a more precise date than hitherto available. - Other contributors include Siegmund Jakob Apin (writer, pedagogue, and classical scholar, 1693-1732), Andreas Christian Eschenbach (theologian and classical scholar, 1663-1722), Johann Wilhelm Feuerlein (theologian, 1689-1766), Christoph Fürer von Haimendorf (poet, 1663-1732), Gottfried Engelhart Geiger (pedagogue, 1681-1748), Johann Jakob Hartmann (theologian, 1671-1728), Georg Jeremias Hofmann (teacher of oriental languages and theologian, 1670-1732), Johann David Köhler (historian, 1684-1755), Michael Friedrich Lochner von Hummelstein (physician and polymath, 1662-1720), Bernhard Walther Marperger (theologian and Lutheran poet, 1682-1746), Jonas Meldercreutz (mathematician and bibliophile, 1713-85), Gustav Philipp Mörl (theologian and librarian, 1673-1750), Johann Heinrich Müller (physicist, astronomer, and mathematician, 1671-1731), Joachim Negelein (theologian and classical scholar, 1675-1749), Johann Heinrich Schulze (physician and classical scholar, 1687-1744), Christian Gottlieb Schwarz (classical scholar and historian, 1675-1751), Gottfried Thomasius (polymath and physician, 1660-1746), Johann Siegmund Wernberger von Wernberg (jurist, 1678-1737), Justin Wetzel (preacher and professor of history and politics, 1667-1727), Georg Karl Wölker (jurist, 1660-1723), and Johann Wülfer (classical scholar and professor of church history, 1651-1724). - Decorative binding insignificantly rubbed, otherwise splendidly preserved autograph album of enormous value for the history of science. Autographs by Celsius, Trew, and Doppelmayr are of the utmost rarity. - Detailed list available upon request.

Stemmi xilogr. ai fr. capilettera e finalini xilogr. Annotazioni manoscritte coeve al fr. della prima opera. Rara raccolta di ordinamenti, saggi e statuti sulla mendicita'. La mendicita' sbandita e' il noto saggio principale in ed. orig, poi piu' volte ristampato, le altre sono pubblicazioni intimamente collegate. Dopo una prima serie di ordinamenti realizzati da Carlo Emanuele I nel 1627, i principi finalizzati ad un buon governo dei poveri, vennero strutturati organicamente da Vittorio Amedeo II nel 1717. La riforma era espressione di un assolutismo monarchico che avocava a se' i compiti tradizionalmente affidati alla chiesa e ai privati. Il centro del sistema in Torino doveva essere l'Ospedale della SS. Carita', luogo di smistamento, in cui i poveri potevano essere ricoverati, condotti in carcere o rimanditi ai luoghi d'origine. Lo scopo era quello di ridurre al massimo la mobilita' dei poveri. Questo intento, nel corso degli anni si rivelera' non realizzabile, essendo troppo profonde le ragioni che spingevano i poveri piemontesi a inurbarsi. Scrive Guevarre nell'incipit: 'Il fine, che si propone nello stabilimento d'uno Ospizio pubblico, e' di sbandire per sempre la mendicita', e di soccorrere spiritualmente, e temporalmente con economia, con ordine, e con metodo tutti i poveri di una Citta', i quali sarebbero forzati a mendicare, se non avessero simile ajuto'. Guevarre e' anche molto attento alla distinzione tra poveri veri e fannulloni alla ricerca di facili elemosine. Il povero riluttante, poco docile, veniva ritenuto 'falso' e 'infingardo', e quindi da rinchiudere. In ogni caso la soluzione, sia per i poveri 'veri' sia per i 'falsi', era l'internamento: i primi l'accettavano volentieri ed erano grati all'autorita' che si prendeva cura di loro gratuitamente, gli altri, invece, essendo figli del demonio, 'fannulloni, bugiardi, impudichi, ubriaconi', mandavano maledizioni e ingiurie ai fondatori e ai direttori dell'Ospedale di carita'. L'internamento, pertanto, diventa ricompensa e punizione, e il povero e' ritenuto in qualche modo responsabile della sua condizione. Andrea Guevarre, gesuita, si adopero' a Parigi e in Francia per la reclusione dei poveri e la soppressione della mendicita'. L'opera di Guevarre continuo' poi a Torino (1720-1724) dove diresse l'Ospedale della Carita'. Bibl. Einaudi, 2800, 5106, 5107, 1228. Cfr. Serratrice, Assistenza e internamento..., p. 190, cit. in La scienza e la colpa, 1985. ITA

        Veduta del Canale e Chiesa di S. Barnaba colla guerra de Pugni

      1717. Acquaforte, 1717 circa, priva di firma. Esemplare nel primo stato di due. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con pieni margini, in perfette condizioni. Inserita nel Il Gran Teatro di Venezia ovvero descrizione esatta di cento delle più insigni prospettive e di altrettante celebri pitture della medesima città, pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1717 dal Lovisa, editore in Venezia nella prima metà del XVIII secolo. Composta da 122 incisioni, l'opera riproduce particolari della città e lavori dei maggiori artisti veneziani. Il Ponte dei Pugni è un ponte di Venezia, situato nel sestiere di Dorsoduro, nei pressi di Campo San Barnaba. Questo ponte presenta sui quattro vertici della pavimentazione della sommità quattro impronte di piedi in pietra d'istria e prende questo nome da un'antica tradizione di Venezia da secoli abbandonata: la Guerra dei pugni. Gli abitanti di due fazioni avverse, i Castellani di San Pietro di Castello e i Nicolotti di San Nicolò dei Mendicoli, si scontravano a "pugni" sulla parte superiore del ponte. Etching, 1717 circa, without signature. Example in the first state of two. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper with margins, in excellent condition. It was included in Il Gran Teatro di Venezia ovvero descrizione esatta di cento delle più insigni prospettive e di altrettante celebri pitture della medesima città, published for the first time in 1717 by Lovisa, a Venetian publisher who worked in the first half of the XVIII century. Made up of 122 engravings, the work depicts details of the city and the major works of the Venetian artists. The Ponte dei Pugni is a Venetian bridge placed in the sestiere of Dorsoduro, nearby Campo San Barnaba. The bridge shows four foot prints, on the four vertices of the floor, realized on Istrian stone; it has been named after a long gone Venetian tradition: the Guerra dei pugni. The inhabitants of two opposing factions, the Castellani of San Pietro di Castello and the Nicolotti of San Nicolò dei Mendicoli, used to fight over the bridge punching each other.

In 1970 she opened the garden for one day to the public for the National Gardens Scheme but eventually it was open 6 days per week to accommodate the 30,000 annual visitors. In 1984 when her husband David died, Rosemary Verey began designing gardens for American and British clients.

      London James Knapton -1705-1709-1709 1717 - 4 volumes bound in 3, 8vo., x, vi, 550, [iv errata/ads]; [viii], 184, 132, [iv], 112, [lxxvi, index]; [xxiv], 162, [ix, index], [v, ads]; [xiv], [ii, ads], 198, [viii, index], [ii, ads], 27 maps and charts (some folding), 15 engraved plates, contemporary calf, covers ruled in gilt and blind, gilt numbered direct to spines, raied bands, dividers ruled in gilt, lightly rubbed , short splits repaired, map of Malacca in volume 2 with small blank away of fore-corner torn away with no loss, occasional light browning, an excellent set. William Dampier (1651 &#150;1715) was the first Englishman to explore parts of what is today Australia, and the first person to circumnavigate the world three times. He has also been described as Australia's first natural historian, as well as one of the most important British explorers in the period between Sir Walter Raleigh and James Cook. Dampier was also a popular and exciting storyteller who inspired both Swift and Defoe. Dampier's greatest contribution to the history of discovery was to inspire his countrymen with enthusiasm to explore the Pacific and in the eighteenth century it was Britain which took the lead in exploring this part of the globe, culminating in Captain Cook's three great expeditions. Dampier's early seafaring life was largely taken up with buccaneering in South America and the Pacific. The first volume here, A New Voyage Round the World, recounts Dampier's voyage from South America across the Pacific to the East Indies and whilst traveling extensively in that region between 1683 and 1691, the first landing of an Englishman on Australian soil. The return to England was by way of the Cape of Good Hope. The second volume, Voyages and Descriptions, contains supplementary material relating to his circumnavigation. The success of the first voyage was such that the British Admiralty commissioned Dampier to conduct surveys of New Holland, or Australia, aboard the Roebuck. The third and fourth volumes describe this expedition, also containing information on South America, South Africa and the East Indies, as well as his conclusion of Australia that "it is not yet determined whether it is an island or a main continent; but I am certain that it joyns neither Asia, Africa, nor America".

        Leibnitz et ClarkeA collection of papers, which passed between the late learned Mr. Leibnitz, and Dr. Clarke, in the years 1715 and 1716. Relating to the principles of natural philosophy and ReligionPrinciples of natural philosophy and religion

      Londres Knapton 1717 1 in 8 Reliure plein veau brun 1ère édition "Dr Samuel Clarke (1675-1729) s'est impliqué dans la controverse avec Leibnitz lorsque celui-ci a mis en garde Caroline, princesse de Galles (à qui le livre est dédié) contre l'athéisme de Newton, dont le Dieu était simplement un super mécanicien. Clarke défendit vivement Newton.. «La contribution la plus directe de Clarke à la physique au cours de cette correspondance est venue dans une note à son cinquième document, dans lequel il a examiné le problème de calcul de la force d'un corps en mouvement." Newton / Wallis." http://www.library.usyd.edu.au/libraries/rare/modernity/clarke.htmlLa correspondance Leibniz-Clarke fut un débat scientifique, théologique et philosophique mené dans un échange de lettres entre le penseur allemand Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz et Samuel Clarke, un partisan de l'anglais Isaac Newton pendant les années 1715 et 1716. L'échange a commencé à cause d'une lettre de Leibniz écrite à Caroline d'Ansbach, dans lequel il a fait remarquer que la physique newtonienne a été préjudiciable à la théologie naturelle. Désireux de défendre le point de vue newtonien, Clarke a répondu, et la correspondance a continué jusqu'à la mort de Leibniz en 1716. Bien qu'une grande variété de sujets soit abordé dans les lettres, le principal intérêt pour les lecteurs modernes réside dans le différend entre la théorie absolue de l'espace favorisé par Newton et Clarke, et l'approche relationnelle de Leibniz. Il est également important de noter que le conflit entre Clarke et les opinions de Leibniz porte sur le libre arbitre et si Dieu doit créer le meilleur de tous les mondes possibles.Leibniz avait publié seulement un livre sur les questions morales, la théodicée (1710), et ses vues plus métaphysiques avaient jamais été exposés à une mesure suffisante, de sorte que les lettres recueillies ont été remplies avec intérêt par leurs contemporains. Le conflit de priorité entre Leibniz et Newton sur le calcul était encore frais dans l'esprit du public et il a été considéré comme une question de cours qu'il était Newton lui-même qui se tenait derrière les réponses de Clarke.

OUVRAGE D'ABORD MIS A L'INDEX puis en a été retiré, mais n'a jamais été formellement interdit, voir annotations rayées du Bibliothécaire du Monastère de la Visitation de Marseille "Cet ouvrage est à l'Index" et bref historique dessous.María de Jesús de Ágreda, née María Fernandez Coronel (1602-1665), en religion Sœur Marie de Jésus, l'abbesse de Ágreda, mystique espagnole. Née à Ágreda en Vieille-Castille, dans une famille de quatre enfants, elle entra dans l'Ordre de l'Immaculée Conception le 13 janvier 1619 avec sa mère et sa sœur, alors que son père et ses frères entrèrent dans les frères du Saint-Sacrement. À partir de 1620, elle vit une série de visions extatiques du Saint-Esprit, de la passion du Christ, de la Pentecôte, de l'Enfant-Jésus et de la Reine des anges. Elle tombait en ravissement devant le Saint-Sacrement et semblait avoir un don de lévitation. Elle dut toutefois subir des assauts occultes. Choisie comme abbesse en 1627, elle RECOIT LES APPARITIONS DE LA SAINTE VIERGE QUI L'AURAIT CHARGEE D'ECRIRE SA VIE. SON OEUVRE PRINCIPALE EST LA CITE MISTIQUE. QUI FIT L'OBJET D'une CONTROVERSE et subit LES ATTAQUES VIOLENTES DE BOSSUET. Décédée en 1665, sa cause en béatification fut introduite en 1671 et elle fut déclarée vénérable huit années plus tard. - LES HUIT LIVRES de la Mistica Ciudad de Dios, réécrits trente-trois ans après les visions primitives, suivent l'ordre de la vie de la Vierge Marie. L'ouvrage comprend trois parties : . de la prédestination de la Vierge jusqu'à l'Incarnation (livres 1-2), de l'Incarnation à l'Ascension du Seigneur (livres 3-6), de l'Ascension à l'Assomption et au couronnement de Marie au ciel (livres 7-8). Chaque partie est précédée d'une introduction et, à partir du chapitre 16 du premier livre, d'une "Doctrina que me dio la Reina del cielo". Cet enseignement donné et une exhortation clôturent chaque chapitre qui décrit un épisode de la vie de Jésus (livres 3 à 6) et de Marie (livres 1 à 8). Le sujet de cette histoire reste cependant Marie, Cité mystique en laquelle Dieu habite et se complaît. - A LA MORT DE MARIE, les DIFFICULTES SURGISSENT. En effet, le procès en vue de sa béatification demandait l'examen de la Cité mystique de Dieu. Une commission diocésaine rendit un jugement favorable en 1667. En même temps l'ouvrage était révisé par une commission de huit théologiens franciscains, révision qui servit de base à l'édition princeps de 1670. Plus tard, en 1674, l'ouvrage fut déféré à l'Inquisition espagnole, qui l'approuvait en juillet 1686 après un long examen de quatorze ans. Entre-temps, les adversaires de la Cité mystique de Dieu avaient fait appel à l'Inquisition romaine. Ce tribunal suprême publia un décret prohibant la lecture de l'œuvre, le 4 août 1681, mais les rois d'Espagne obtinrent des Papes Innocent XI, puis d'Innocent XII que la publication de ce décret soit suspendue là où elle n'avait pas encore été faite. - Au milieu d'autres vicissitudes et pendant qu'une commission de trois cardinaux nommés par Innocent XII étudiaient à Rome les livres de Marie d'Agreda, L'ATTAQUE ET LA CENSURE VINRENT DE LA SORBONNE 1696). Contre l'université parisienne, celles d'Alcala et Salamanque (1699), Oviedo, Grenade, Saragosse, Toulouse, Vienne, Perpignan et Louvain (1715) donnèrent un avis favorable. En même temps paraissait une vague d'apologies et de défenses réfutant les allégations des docteurs de Sorbonne. On sait que BOSSUET FUT UN ADVERSAIRE DE l'œuvre de Marie d'Agreda.
