SALVINI, SALVINO (Edt.). - VIVIANI, VINCENZO. - [THE FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT BIOGRAPHY OF GALILEI]
Firenze, Nella Stamperia S.A.R. Per Gio: Gaetano, e Sant Franchi, 1717. 4to. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. A bit of wear to capitals and a bit of minor soiling to boards, but a fine and handsome copy. Inner hinges a bit weak. Internally nice and clean, with just a bit of light minor occasional brownspotting. Large engraved pictorial vignette (heading: Accdemia Fiorentina) to title-page. Very nice woodcut vignettes and initials throughout. XXXI, (1), 676, (2, - Approvazioni) pp. [Viviani's Galilei-biography: pp. 397-431]. ¶ First edition of this extensive work of biographies of the people of the Florentine Academy. Among the dozens of biographies in the present work, we have the first printing of Viviani's seminal biography of Galilei, the first, and by far the most important biography of the great astronomer ever written. It is from this biography that we have most of the canonical stories and anecdotes about Galilei that keep being repeated and quoted - e.g. the legend of Galilei demonstrating to his students that Aristotle was wrong about speed of fall being related to the weight of an object by dropping balls of different mass off the leaning tower in Pisa; the stories of how he came up with the idea of the pendulum after having watched a suspended lamp swing back and forth in the cathedral of Pisa when he was still a student there - and furthermore also how his first experiments with pendulums were carried out (by his son due to his own failing eyesight), etc., etc.Vincenzo Viviani (1622-1703) considered himself Galilei's last pupil and he s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Behn, Aphra
[Behn, Aphra.] The land of love. A poem. London: printed by H. Meere; for C. King, and A. Bettesworth, 1717. 72 pp. + an engraved frontispiece. 12mo, disbound. First edition thus. A revised version of Aphra Behn's free adaptation of the Abbé Paul Tallement's Voyages de l'Isle d'Amour (1663), first published in her Poems upon Several Occasions in 1684, and reprinted in 1697. The French original was in both prose and poetry; Aphra Behn's version is entirely rewritten in verse, and the result is a seduction poem of more than 2000 lines, "in which the sex act becomes a strenuous journey through Honour, Respect, and Jealousy to Opportunity." -- Janet Todd (Oxford DNB). The source of this altered text, published almost thirty years after her death, is obscure. "The revisions involve deletions and resequencing of the poems so that the conclusion is moral. The reworking of the poems is smooth, and it is hard to find traces of a second hand in this even though it is unlikely that the revisions are Behn's." -- O'Donnell, Aphra Behn: An Annotated Bibliography, BA8. The engraved frontispiece shows three persons in a ship approaching shore, where two figures kneel before a statue of Cupid. A very rare and curious edition of a major work by England's first professional woman writer; the ESTC lists three copies only (L; CSmH, KU-S). Foxon B162.

Lisbon, Na Officina de Pascoal da Sylva, 1717. - Woodcut monogram on title-page, headpiece and initial on p. 3, and half-page woodcut on of double-headed eagle on final page. 72 pp. 4°, disbound, edges rouged. Foldlines. Light soiling. Repairs with paper to inner margin of most pages, occasionally touching a few letters. Overall good condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this account of the siege and capture of Belgrade, strategically located in Serbia at the junction of the Danube and Sava Rivers. The victory went to Austrian forces under Prince Eugene of Savoy. The narrative gives details of the Austrian and Turkish armies day by day, and a lengthy description of the final battle, on August 18, 1717, which began with an unusual night attack on the Turkish troops camped outside the city (pp. 52-69). Special mention is given to D. Manoel, Infante of Portugal, and other Portuguese volunteers serving with the Austrians.After the capture of Belgrade the Turks sued for peace, ending the Austro-Turkish War (1714-1718) and leaving Emperor Charles VI free to join Great Britain, France, and the Dutch Republic in the Quadruple Alliance against Spain. By the Peace of Passarowitz (1718), the Habsburg Empire gained Belgrade and northern Serbia, thus reaching its maximum expansion in the Balkans.Prince Eugene of Savoy was one of the leading military figures of the day, famous for decisively defeating the Ottomans at the Battle of Zenta in 1697 (he was hailed by Catholics and Protestants as ?the savior of Christendom?) and for his partnership with the Duke of Marlborough at the battl … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORRADI D’AUSTRIA, Domenico.
Per Bartolomeo Soliani stampatore ducale, In Modena, 1717. Opere molto rare scritte dal matematico Domenico Corradi d’Austria (Modena, 1677–1756), nel 1709 ricevette la nomina ufficiale a matematico ducale, ma il suo nome può essere ascritto tra quelli degli ingegneri, dei fisici, dei chimici e dei geologi. Commissario generale delle artiglierie ducali, fu sovrintendente alle miniere di Forno Volasco in Garfagnana, si interessò di polveri da fuoco, di leghe metalliche, della regolazione dei corsi dei fiumi della pianura, di variazioni barometriche in rapporto anche alla meteorologia. Nel 1743-44 pubblicò in due volumi "De’ Calcoli differenziale" e integrale, che è la prima opera stampata in Italia e dedicata completamente al calcolo infinitesimale presentato da G. W. Leibniz nel 1684. Nel 1689-90 Leibniz aveva soggiornato a Modena e nell’occasione aveva stretto rapporti con gli uomini più colti della città, tra i quali il padre di Domenico Corradi d’Austria. Affascinanti le due grandi carte topografiche. Formato: 2 v. legati in uno ([8], 266, [2] p., [4] c. di tav. ripieg; 132 p., [1] c. di tav. ripieg.) 32 cm, m.p. dorso con fregi dorati ed etichetta a rilievo, tagli spruzzati. Buono, esemplare leggermente allentato, lievi bruniture. La libreria offre per un periodo limitato uno sconto del 15% su tutti i suoi libri. Il prezzo originale dell'articolo era 1350.00 euro.

[Entire volume: (4), 553, (39) pp. + seven engraved plates.]. ¶ First printing of the famous Libnitz-issue of Acta Eruditorum published a year after the death of Leibnitz, including the renowned obituary by the German philosopher Christian Wolff. <br>In 1706, Leibniz recommended Wolff for the Professorship at Halle, the post Wolff held for seventeen years until his dismissal, and in 1711, Leibniz sponsored Wolff's membership to the Berlin Academy. It is also mentioned that during the year of Leibniz's death in 1716, Leibniz visited Wolff in Halle when returning to Hanover from Vienna. To honor Leibnitz memory Wolff undertook the project of writing ELOGIUM GODOFREDI GUILIEMI LEIBNITII, a treatise of the life of Leibnitz. <br><br>As early as 1679 George I, acting as Leibnitz patron, directed him to write the history of the house of Brunswick. Immediately after he began arranging material he had collected. The work was, however, only the preparatory steps when Leibnitz died in 1716 and the work was never published. The present paper, NOTITIA DE HISTORIA BRUNSUICENSI, is the only part of the work, which could have become a opus magnum with historiography, that has ever be … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jahrunderts in Prag und später in Wien tätig, "wo er dreimal heiratete und 1740 als Trauzeuge auftrat" (AKL, Saur). Zwischen 1705 und 1730 wird seinem Namen in Dokumenten wiederholt der Titel eines Universitäts-Kupferstechers zugeordnet. "Man kennt von ihm einige Porträts berühmter Zeitgenossen, darunter das des Grafen Franz Ferdinand Wchinsky, ferner einen Stadtplan von Belgrad (1717) und eine Dekoration nach Giuseppe Galli Bibiena" (Thieme/Becker V, 111).

Defoe,Daniel] Written by Himself [ascribed by the real author, probably Defoe, to Nicholas Mesnager ((1658-1714)]
London: S.Baker at the Black-Boy and Anchor .. 1st edition, 1717. Hardcover. Very Good-. Octavo calf rebacked on 5 raised bands (tips worn) 326pp. There are two variants of D2 - this copy has the catchword DONE on p51. Variable foxing/staining but paper strong and supple, neatly restored with reinserted endpapers. *According to the British Library this is in fact an original English work by Daniel Defoe. "To support the claim that the book was a genuine translation from the French of Nicholas Mesnager, an alternative titlepage was printed (reading) Minutes of the negotiation [sic] of Monsr. Mesnager at the court of England. .. Antwerp, printed for Jean van Borscelen. 1717'.. One title or the other was meant to be cancelled" (Moore). According to others, this is a forgery ascribed to Defoe, intended to influence the trial of his patron, Lord Oxford. Our titlepage does seem to be a cancel as it is stubbed in but this could have been done when the spine was repaired. The work seems to be universally catalogued under Defoe -even by libraries supporting the forgery theory. It is a piece of anti-Jacobite propaganda relating to the negotiations leading up to the Treaty of Utrecht (1713).

Parma: Nella Stamperia di S.A.S., 1717. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. A beautiful copy of one of the most attractive Fête books of the Italian Baroque. The illustrations include an allegorical frontispiece and five large, double-folding plates, etched by various artists after original designs by Ilario Spolverini. The text and etched plates document sumptious details attending the marriage of Philip V of Spain to Elizabeth Farnese of Parma in 1714. The wedding took place at the Parma Cathedral to much pomp and ceremony. "This was the culminating event for the Farnese family's dynastic ambitions, and its commemoration was ensured not only by this illustrated book, but also by the three series of narrative paintings that Duke Francesco Farnese commissioned from the local painter Ilario Spolverin" (Millard, Italian and Spanish Architectural Books, p. 341). The book is famous for the five folding etched plates; but the first holds pride of pre-eminence. It shows the magnificent cortège of the papal legate, Cardinal Gozzadini, Bishop of Imola, and the bridegroom Philip V entering the city … [Click Below for Full Description]
