With 19 engraved plates (18 folding and 1 double-page), numbered I-XIX, and 1 woodcut illustration in text. Modern paper boards. [10], 66 pp. First edition of a work comparing the Dutch, French and German fortification systems, written by the German architect and theologian Leonhard Christoph Sturm (1669-1719), "the foremost German architectural theorist of the early 18th century" (Neville). He compares the different fortification methods of three prominent military engineers: the Dutch Menno van Coehoorn, the French Vauban, and the German George Rimpler. The text is divided into 7 chapters discussing their methods of designing and building fortifications and comparing them. Included at the end are 19 large engraved plates, providing very detailed plans, profiles, etc. Of course, Sturm concludes that the German system of fortification is better than the French and Dutch. He closes with a chapter on the living quarters, ammunition and provision stores, other buildings and markets within the fortifications.With a few small spots, tears in the folding plates repaired and reinforced on the back, causing some discolouration. Otherwise in good condition. Jähns, p.1442; Jorda … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RODRIGUES, José Francisco and João RODRIGUES] ("Cesar Fiosconi, e Jordam GUSERIO").
Espingarda perfeyta, & regras para a sua operaçam . . .Lisbon, António Pedroso Galrão, 1718. 4to. With full-page frontispiece showing the crowned Portuguese coat of arms, title-page with engraved decorative cartouche, 12 engraved plates (including 4 folding) by Manuel Freire and 1 engraved illustration in the text. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment. [31], [1 blank], 183, [1 blank] pp. First (and only early) edition of a rare Portuguese manual devoted primarily to gun smithing, but also discussing the use of guns in hunting. It gives detailed instructions and excellent illustrations concerning the techniques of gunsmithing ca. 1700, with views of men at work at the forge, with many tools in view, a man using a lathe, men using several other tools, decorated gunlocks and other decorative elements. One plate shows a man shooting a bird. Written by two brothers, the Lisbon gunsmiths José Fransisco and João Rodrigues, it is "the most remarkable treatise on the subject of gunmaking of this period'' (Daehnhardt in the introduction of the 1974 reprint). The Rodrigues brothers broke with tradition by setting down in print knowledge that had previously been passed down from master to apprentice within the closed circles of the trade guilds.With 1 plate detached, a few minor tears, and an occasional stain (mostly in the gutter margin), otherwise in very good condition. A rare and well-illustrated practical manual of gunsmithing. Innocencio IV, 1250; KVK & WorldCat (7 copies); Schwerdt I, p. 174; cf. Daehnhardt, Espingarda Perfeita or The Perfect Gun (1974).

Wintringham
York: Grace White for Francis Hildyard, 1718. Antique old book. Please see all the photos. A Treatise of Endemic Diseases wherein the Different Nature of Airs, Situations, Soils, Waters, Diet, &c. are Mechanically Explain'd and Accounted for. Firts Edition. WINTRINGHAM, Clifton Published by York: Printed by Grace White for Francis Hildyard, and are to be Sold by W. Taylor, & Tho. Ward, 1718., 1718 Very Good. First Edition. Wintringham was a physician in York for over thirty-five years. "His published works . . . are full of good sense and practical information" (Munk II: 35). The Works of the Late Clifton Wintringham, Physician, at York, edited by his son Sir Clifton Wintringham M.D. F.R.S, were published in 1752, four years after Wintringham's death. "His most significant and innovative publication was Commentarius nosologicus, morbos epidemicos . . . in urbe Eboracensi. Originally published in York in 1727, it was based on data he had collected for nearly twenty years on death rates and epidemics in the city. . . . At this early period, such epidemiological surveys were extremely rare and Wintringham was undoubtedly a pioneer in this branch of medical writing. Statistics collected from the York parish registers show the severity of the epidemics--typhus in 1718-19, measles in 1721 and 1730, miliary fever in 1727--on all of which Wintringham commented.

BYNG, Admiral of the Fleet Sir George
1718. A remarkable archive of 24 letters from Admiral of the Fleet George Byng, sent to Rear Admiral George Delaval, who commanded the Blue Squadron under Byng's command, along with associated documents from George Saunders and Josiah Burchett, Secretary of the Admiralty, relating to the British naval campaign of 1718 in the Mediterranean, culminating in the Battle of Cape Passaro, Sicily, on the 11th August. A mix of quarto and folio sheet with many folded once to form four pages. Each letter is Signed by Byng, with one signed twice. Despite their age the letters are near fine or better with only light wear and housed in a custom cloth chemise with printed labels. The Battle of Cape Passaro resulted in the defeat of the Spanish by the British Fleet under Sir George Byng four months before the War of the Quadruple Alliance. The Spanish refused to re-embark their army from the Sicilian mainland. Despite war not having been formally declared, Byng correctly anticipated approval from home and attacked and routed the Spanish fleet, thwarting their ambitions to take Italy and Sicily. The subject matter of the letters is concerned with supplies, day-to-day naval matters, and continuing hostilities against the Spanish, and includes details of several rendezvous for meeting up in the event of separation owing to bad weather. Common problems are mentioned such as desertion and shortage of food and more particularly wine. The earliest is dated May 17th concerning the mobilization of troops and pressed men for the campaign. The letter of May 29th regards the Line of Battle detailing s … [Click Below for Full Description]

"His work on the theory of probability surpasses anything done by any other mathematician except Laplace" (Cajori). "De Moivre's representation of the solutions of the then current problems of games of chance tended to be more general than those of Montmort. In addition, he developed a series of algebraic and analytic tools for the theory of probability, like a 'new algebra' for the solution of the problem of coincidences which foreshadowed Boolean algebra, the method of generating functions, or the theory of recurrent series for the solution of differential equations. In the Doctrine, de Moivre offered an introduction which contains the main concepts such as probability, condition probability, expectation, dependent and independent events, the multiplication rule, and the binomial distribution" (DNB).

In addition, he developed a series of algebraic and analytic tools for the theory of probability, like a 'new algebra' for the solution of the problem of coincidences which foreshadowed Boolean algebra, the method of generating functions, or the theory of recurrent series for the solution of differential equations. In the Doctrine, de Moivre offered an introduction which contains the main concepts such as probability, condition probability, expectation, dependent and independent events, the multiplication rule, and the binomial distribution" (DNB). Very Good.

1718. Aphra Behn - Select Novels and Histories Written by the Late Ingenious Mrs. Behn - published in 1718 by W. Mears, at the Lamb; F. Clay, at the Bible; and D. Browne, at the Black-Swan, without Temple-Bar Measuring approximately 8" * 5", in a later panelled calf binding, probably late 18th or early 19th century, with gilt decoration to the spine and a slightly lighter brown title label, more recently re-backed and with repairs to the gutters. The boards are somewhat bumped and rubbed with some loss of the earlier spine. The text block is quite toned and foxed, with some marks, scuffs and stains, also minor loss and creasing to some page edges, the final page lacks the lower half, with no loss of text, and has been repaired, presumably at the point of the original re-binding. The general title is present, undated, with 5 internal title pages dated 1718, there should also, I believe, be a title for 'A Theory of the System of Several New Inhabited Worlds.', which is lacking, but it is otherwise complete. The contents are as follows: I. The Unfortunate Bride, or the Blind Lady a Beauty: A Novel. II. The Dumb Virgin: or, The Force of Imagination: A Novel. III.

HUNTER, WILLIAM.
, . . [6], [34] pp.Magnificent first edition of a bilingual (Latin and English) anatomical atlas on obstetrics and gynaecology, illustrated with 34 mostly life-sized and accurately detailed anatomical plates of pregnant women and their unborn children. William Hunter (1718-1783), royal physician and professor of anatomy at the Society of Naval Surgeons, wrote the preface and the notes to the plates, had the illustrations drawn under his supervision and worked closely with the engravers, who produced the plates at his expense. The work began when a young woman died suddenly at full term in 1751 and Hunter was able to procure her body before any deterioration. In the preface Hunter gives remarkable details about his techniques, such as "the injection of the blood-vessels" to preserve the body for the artists, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of anatomical illustration, which he mixes here. "One of the great publications of world medical literature as well as a classic of book production" (Heirs of Hippocrates) and "one of the great artistic achievements in medicine" (Haskell Norman).With the ca. 1800 ink stamp of "The Liverpool Library". Without the dedication leaf, fore-edge of plate VIII slightly shaved, a small restoration removing its engraver's name, a few other small marginal restorations, a crease in 1 plate and a few text leaves, and a faint marginal water stain in the last few leaves, but still generally in good condition. The marbled-paper sides are slightly rubbed but the binding is otherwise very good. A spectacular showpiece for … [Click Below for Full Description]

Educated Westminster and Christ Church, Oxford, "through his father Willis inherited Whaddon Hall, where he was to live until his death, together with the adjoining manor and advowson of Bletchley. He also owned the manor of Burlton in Burghill, Herefordshire, and his estate was augmented by the dowry of £7000 obtained through his marriage... From 1705 to 1708 Willis served as tory MP for Buckingham... but by that time he had already decided to devote his life to antiquarian interests, probably first awakened by his boyhood visits to Westminster Abbey. Willis's energies and range as an antiquarian writer were prodigious [he] was one of the first antiquaries to base his work on original documents... He travelled extensively, visiting every cathedral in England and Wales save Carlisle" (ODNB). Willis's approach to the buildings was innovative in its attention to the architecture, rather than purely the monuments, and in his concern for their condition and future preservation.
