        Send-Brieven, Zoo aan de Hoog Edele Heeren van de Koninklyke Societeit te Londen, als aan andere aansienelyke en geleerde lieden, over verscheyde verborgentheden der natuure,... & c.

      Delft:: Adriaan Beman. 1718. hardcover. Sm. 4to. [viii], 460, [xxviii] pp. Engraved allegorical half-title ?. featuring a small portrait of the author set within an oval frame. (signed by J. Goeree), 30 ENGRAVED PLATES [31 TOTAL], index;. occasional foxing. Original blind-stamped vellum, manuscript spine. title; small exposed part of upper board (along fore-edge), else fine.. Leeuwenhoek was the greatest of the early microbiologists, and was responsible for many important discoveries. He published 165 letters in his lifetime, numbered in two separate series - the first numbered with Arabic numerals, the second with Roman. The first series began with No.28 and ran to No. 146; while the second series was consistently numbered I to XLVI. [cf. Dobell, Anthony van Leeuwenhoek, 1932]. The letters were mostly written in Dutch and then translated into Latin. ¶ ?Leeuwenhoek?s observations were so striking, owing to the minuteness of the structures that he dealt with and the accuracy of his observation, that there was very great curiosity as to the kind of instrument that he must be using to obtain such wonderful results, and in 1681 there was a discussion about them. ? [He never revealed the secret of his instruments]. At the death of Leeuwenhoek, a cabinet containing 26 of his microscopes was left to the Royal Society? Leeuwenhoek reached a high standard in the art of grinding these small lenses, but he excelled still more in his skill in dissecting and mounting his objects, and in his powers of observation and deduction.? ? Clay & Court, pp. 34-5. ¶ ?Leeuwenhoek published the Send.brieven in 1718 and at his death left the plates and Latin translations prepared for another publication.? (p.170). ?Leeuwenhoek himself was by no means unsuspecting of the encroachment of preconceptions upon observations. Acutely conscious indeed of the danger of self-deception, he often emphasized how many times he repeated observations before feeling secure about what he saw.? (p.198) ?Not surprisingly, the drives at work in that research appear in fact to have been numerous and diverse. Late in his life, Leeuwenhoek insisted that his microscopic efforts derived only from his inquisitiveness and an inclination to explore the principles ? of things.? (p.157) ? Edward G. Ruestow, The Microscope in the Dutch Republic: The Shaping of Discovery, 2004. ¶ ?To Antonio van Leeuwenhoek, of Delft, belongs the high merit of having been the first to use the microscope systematically and of having brought the construction of the simple microscope in his own hands to a high degree of perfection. . . . Self-taught and never having attended a university, ignorant of Latin and Greek and of the classical texts, he became one of the greatest and most expert microscopists, thanks to the sagacity of his observations and the perfection of his technique (Arturo Castiglioni, A history of medicine. New York, 1946. pp. 528-529). Leeuwenhoek was a master lens-grinder and, during his lifetime, constructed several hundred microscopes, grinding a new lens for each new investigation which he undertook. These volumes contain some eighty letters from among the several hundred in which Leeuwenhoek communicated the results of his microscopical investigations to the Royal Society in London and which were published in its Philosophical Transactions over many years. Though not a trained scientist and unable to follow up his hundreds of investigations, he opened up avenues of anatomy hitherto unknown and unseen, leading to accurate physiology and, in turn, to accurate therapeutics. One example is use of his perfected microscope by Malpighi (see No. 569) to define the ultimate structure of the capillaries, which closed the final link in Harvey?s description of the circulation of the blood. Leeuwenhoek first described the individual plant cell, the individual striped muscle cell, spermatozoa, red corpuscles, and the crystalline lens of the eye. These works are richly illustrated with Leeuwenhoek?s drawings, which are of fundamental importance to histologic anatomy.? ? Heirs of Hippocrates. ¶ See ?Lens on Leeuwenhoek? by Douglas Anderson for a study of the letters of Leeuwenhoek, each offered in partial translation. The first letter, addressed to Anthonie Heinsius, for example deals with the flesh of a whale. Letter III deals with barley and a Turkish bean. Letter XI addressed to the Royal Society, deals with flesh from a cow, a hen, a mouse, a fly, the wild honeybee, legs of fleas, an ant, mite, and more. Anderson offers a lot more information for those interested. ¶ Clay, R.S. & Court, T.H., The History of the Microscope, (1932); Dobell, Clifford, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and his ?little animals,?

Petit, Doct. Med. Suessionaei. Near. fine. RARE.. FIRST EDITION of one of the most desirable of eighteenth-century books on microscopy, valued for the lovely engravings devoted to Joblot?s microscope, the first French microscopist. This is also the first separate treatise written on protozoology and or microorganisms. It contains the ?first experiments ever made to disprove the theory? of spontaneous generation and the first to announce the regular process heat sterilization. ? Lechevalier. JOBLOT WAS INFLUENCED BY VAN LEEUWENHOEK ? FRIST FRENCH MICROSCOPIST ? IMPORTANT MICROSCOPE INSTRUMENT MAKER ? FIRST TO STERILIZE BY HEAT ? FIRST TO PUBLISH MATERIAL TO DISPROVE SPONTANEOUS GENERATION. An exceedingly scarce work issued in two parts: the first dealing with the construction of the microscope, and the second with the animalcules studied by the author. ?Joblot was the first to carry out experiments on heated infusions to see whether they were capable of producing animalcules.? Bullock, The history of bacteriology, pp. 30, 70- 71. ¶ The frontispiece/vignette to part II is believed to be Joblot himself in his laboratory. The plate VI, fig. 12 shows a remarkable curiosity: a mustached ?organism? ? complete with a face! ¶ Louis Joblot, a contemporary of van Leeuwenhoek, was professor of perspective and geometry in Italy, then professor mathematics at the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts. Joblot probably was inspired to begin this work in the summer of 1678, when Huygens and Hartsoeker visited Paris with microscopes which they demonstrated. ?During his life, Joblot was engaged primarily in the study of physics: magnetism and optics had a special fascination for him. It is mainly because of his microscopes and what he saw with them that we remember him.? ? Lechevalier, p.241. ¶ PROVENANCE: [Francois] Henri Petit (1681-1766), of Soissons, France, studied medicine in Paris, physician for Louis Phillipe, Duc d?Orleans, Paris; he was replaced by Théodore Tronchin (1709-1781). He owned a vast library with books in the fields of medicine and science. The collection was later owner by his two sons, with Antione- François Petit of Tournelles, a physician, writer and bibliophile. ¶ Blake, NLM, p. 235; Bulloch, The history of bacteriology, passim; Clay & Court, History of the Microscope, pp. 57-59; Cole Library 1265; Cole, History of protozoology, pp. 39-40; DSB, VIII, pp. 110-112; Gascoigne 10867.1; Nissen, ZBI, 2113; Waller 10856; Wellcome, III, p. 356. ¶ See: Hubert Lechevalier, ?Louis Joblot and His Microscopes,?

Antiporta in rame rappresentante il teatro anatomico di Padova; ritratto dell'autore in rame entro ovale inciso da Jo. Georgius, 49 tavv. f.t. a piena pag. rapresentanti organi e parti anatomiche incise dal Georgius, suddivise in 24 nella prima parte e 25 tavv. nella seconda parte, 1 tav. nella lettera del Welsch alla fine. Cartone muto d'attesa coevo, con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Vesling, nato a Minden in (Westphalia) e morto a Padova; studiò medicina a Leida e Bologna, passò alcuni anni in Egitto presso Alvise Cornaro, rappresentante di Venezia al Cairo, ed altri in Palestina, diventando professore di anatomia a Padova nel 1632. Si interessò anche di botanica, diventando rettore dell'Orto Botanico Patavino. A lui si deve la scoperta del tronco comune dei vasi lattei e linfatici, dei vasi lattei del mesenterio ed i linfatici dello stomaco. "Syntagma Anatomicum"è uno dei trattati di anatomia, (molto stimato all'epoca) più ricercati del XVII, con splendide tavole rimarchevoli dal punto di vista anatomico, secondo Choulant - Frank, fra le più corrette dei suoi predecessori. Pubblicato per la prima volta a Padova nel 1641, successivamente ebbe diverse edizioni e traduzioni. Bell'esemplare genuino in barbe, presenta alcune tavole un po' arrossate.

        Torah, nevi'im u-khetuvim. Biblia hebraica sine punctis. Accurante Nath. Forster.

      Late as the date may seem for it, this is the first separate edition of the Hebrew Bible printed in England, preceded only by the printing of the text as part of the Walton Polyglot. Editor Nathaniel Forster (1718-57), an accomplished scholar of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew, has included (in the style of the table of contents) "Pentateuchus, Prophetae priores, Prophetae posteriores, Hagiographa"; the leaves following "Prophetae posteriores" are separately signed and printed "Vol. 2." Based on Van der Hoogh's version, the text is in Hebrew, with titles and chapter heads also in Latin. There were two issues of this, a large paper issue and the common paper issue, of which this is one of the latter.Unlike most 18th-century books printed at Oxford, this is scarce. ESTC locates only seven U.S. holding libraries (one of which has deaccessioned its copy) and WorldCat locates three additional library copies (one of which has also been deaccessioned). Of the eight reported copies still actually in libraries four are in the Northeast, two in California, one at Duke, and one in Ohio. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released).

        An account of a small telescopical comet seen at London on the 10th June 1717,’ pp. 721-3 in Philosophical Transactions, Vol. 30, No. 354.

      W. & J. Innys 1718 - Complete issue No. 354 of Philosophical Transactions. 4to, pp. 691-734 with one folding plate (three stamps on first page, one private and two institutional, otherwise very good, no marks on the Halley article). Disbound. FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST DISCOVERY OF A COMET BY MEANS OF A TELESCOPE (the paper is anonymous, but is by Halley as editor of the Philosophical Transactions). At the time of Halley’s observations, it was unknown whether comets were in abundance in the solar system, or were quite rare. Although no comet had been seen from England for 35 years, Halley theorized that, on account of several recent observations of comets in France, there were perhaps many more than had been earlier supposed. "Hence," he wrote, "we may justly conclude that the Returns of Comets are much more frequent than is vulgarly reckoned." As evidence for this conjecture, he described in this paper the results of observations made with his 24-foot telescope (which he had used in St. Helena 40 years earlier to catalogue the southern stars). “On Monday, June 10, in the Evening, the Sky being very serene and calm, I was desirous to take a view of the disk of Mars (then very near the Earth, and appearing very glorious) to see if I could distinguish in my 24 Foot Telescope, the Spots said to be seen on him. Directing my Tube for the purpose, I accidentally fell upon a small whitish Appearance near the Planet, resembling in all respects such a Nebula . The Reverend Mr. Miles Williams, Mr. Alban Thomas, and myself contemplated this Appearance for above an Hour . and we could not be deceiv'd as to its Reality; but the slowness of its Motion made us at that time conclude that it had none, and that it was rather a Nebula than a Comet.” To confirm that the object was indeed a comet, the trio continued their observations later in the week. Halley continued: “However, suspecting that it might have some Motion, I attended the next Night, June 11th, at the same Hours and in the same Company, when with some Difficulty by reason of the Thickness of the Air, we found the two little Stars, but the Nebula could not at that time be seen, which we then inputed to the want of a clearer Sky. But on Saturday, June 15, the Moon being absent, and the Air perfectly clear, we had again a distinct View of the two Stars, with an entire Evidence that there remained no Footstep or Sign of it, in the place where we had first seen this Phenomenon, which we therefore now found to be a Comet.” The comet observed by Halley in 1717 is not ‘Halley’s comet’, which was not in fact discovered by Halley - his name is associated with it because he correctly predicted its reappearance in 1758. The comet he did discover in 1717 seems not to have reappeared. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Erucarum ortus, alimentum et paradoxa metamorphosis...

      Amsterdam, J. Oosterwyk, (1718). 3 parts bound in one. 4to (197 x 155mm). With hand-coloured engraved allegorical frontispiece by J. Schijnvoet, hand-coloured engraved portrait of Maria Sibilla Merian, 3 other hand-coloured frontispieces of floral wreaths to each part, one hand-coloured engraved vignette and 150 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary Dutch calf, richly gilt ornamented spine with gilt lettering in 6 compartments (head of spine shaved). An extraordinarily fine coloured copy of the first Latin edition of Maria Sibylla Merian's 'Der Rupsen Begin', published one year after the third volume of the Dutch language edition. The work was first published in German 'Der Raupen wunderbare Verwandlung'. Of this German edition only 2 parts were published./ /The frontispiece, the portrait of Merian and the 3 frontispieces of floral wreaths have the margins enlarged at the time of printing and binding. The edges of these leaves have the same faint red colour as the other leaves. Copies of this edition have come on the market without the allegorical frontispiece by Schijnvoet, and the 3 frontispieces of floral wreath and most copies do not have the portrait of Merian (see for example Christie's sale 4 June 2008). In our opinion the present copy is an early issue of the work, with the allegorical frontispiece, portrait of Merian and the 3 frontispieces of floral wreath printed on smaller paper, which were made to size when the book was bound. The binding is strictly contemporary. As the colouring of the present copy is exceptionally fine it is not unlikely it was done by Dorothea, the daughter of Sibylla Merian. Dorothea, after the death of her mother in January 1717 edited the third part of the 'Der Rupsen Begin'. On 28 September of the same year she sold all the copper plates, printed as well as already coloured engravings of the Suriname insects and 'Der Rupsen Begin' to the Amsterdam publisher Oosterwijk. The next year Dorothea left for St Petersburg to meet up with her husband Georg Gsell. Both had been invited by Czar Peter the Great to take care of the art collections. Dorothea had closely worked together with her mother for many years and her art work is as refined and exquisite as her mother's./The Latin edition was published posthumously as Sibylla Merian died the previous year. Maria Sibylla Merian was one of the most remarkable naturalists of the 17th and 18th century, daughter of the renowned publisher Matthäus Merian of Frankfurt. Already at the very early age of thirteen she began studying insects. She became the most celebrated woman artist of her time and many of her drawings were acquired by Czar Peter the Great. "The work of these years consisted of both scientific and artistic activity: Merian collected and raised insects, fed them with their host plants, observed them, described and drew their metamorphoses from egg to caterpillar and from pupa to butterfly imago. She then compiled her individual observations and studies in pictorial compositions" (Maria Sibylla Merian, Artist and Naturalist 1647-1717, p. 103)./In 1699 Sibylla Merian embarked upon the dangerous journey from Amsterdam to Surinam in the company of her daughter Dorothea. The result of this was her famous 'Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium' published in Amsterdam 1705./Portrait of Merian with 2 brown spots at lower margin, title-page with 2 faint stamps as well as verso of 3 leaves with faint stamp.//Nissen BBI, 1342; Pfeiffer, Die Werke Maria Sibylla Merian, Nr. A7; M.S. Merian artist and naturalist no. 155.

        Arrest Du Conseil D'Estat Du Roy, Concernant le Commerce du Castor, don't le Privilege est accordé à la Compagnie d'Occident. Du. 11. Juillet 1718. Extrait des Registres du Conseil d'Estat.

      Paris: A L'Imprimerie Royale, 1718. No Binding. Very Good. quarto, 8 pages, trimmed at top and bottom edge, old armorial hand-stamp and manuscript notation on first page, small stain in blank margin, manuscript attestation or registration at La Rochelle 3 December, 1718, signed "Regnaud." Grants exclusive rights for the Canadian beaver trade to John Law's Compagnie de l'Occident, better known as the Mississippi Company. This was a key element in the finances of Law's company. In May 1716, the Banque Générale Privée, which developed the use of paper money, was set by convicted murderer and millionaire gambler John Law. It was a private bank, but three quarters of the capital consisted of government bills and government accepted notes. In August 1717, he bought the Mississippi Company to help the French colony in Louisiana. In the same year Law conceived a joint-stock trading company called the Compagnie d'Occident, or literally "Company of the West." Law was named Chief Director of this new company, which was granted a trade monopoly in August 1717, of the West Indies and North America by the French government. In Canada the company would trade in beaver skins. In Louisiana they would trade in precious metals. (see item number 33 below for the company's charter). Variant of Wroth and Annan, 642, the present example with different imprint. See Maggs, The French Colonisation of America, 111, for their offering of that variant issue (£10 10s). Not in Sabin, not in Lande, not in Staton & Tremaine, not in European Americana, not found in OCLC.

Leonhard Christoph Sturm (* 5. November 1669 in Altdorf bei Nürnberg; † 6. Juni 1719 in Blankenburg) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller, Architekturtheoretiker, Baumeister, Theologe und Chiliast. Seine Eltern waren Johann Christoph Sturm, Professor für Mathematik und Physik an der Universität Altdorf, und dessen Frau Barbara Johanna geb. Kessler. Bis 1683 besuchte er das Gymnasium Kloster Heilsbronn. Danach studierte er Theologie an der Universität Altdorf und wurde 1688 Magister in Artibus. Am 7. Februar 1689 erhielt er ein Lehramt in Jena, 1689/90 an der Universität Leipzig. Danach war er bis 1702 Professor der Mathematik an der Rudolph-Antoniana zu Wolfenbüttel, wo er die Nachfolge Johann Balthasar Lauterbachs als Lehrer für Geometrie, Mathematik, Zivil- und Militärbaukunst antrat. 1702 erhielt er eine Professur an der Brandenburgischen Universität Frankfurt und wurde auswärtiges Mitglied der Königlich Preußischen Sozietät der Wissenschaften. Während seiner Zeit in Wolfenbüttel wurde er mit einigen Bauprojekten betraut, u.a. mit der Neuplanung der 1700 durch einen Brand stark zerstörten Stadt Calvörde. Dort wurden die barocke St. Georgskirche (fertiggestellt 1729), das Pfarrhaus, das Rathaus und eine Schule weitgehend nach Plänen Leonhard Christoph Sturms wiedererrichtet. Am 27. März 1711 stellte ihn Herzog Friedrich Wilhelm von Mecklenburg-Schwerin als Baudirektor ein. In dieser Tätigkeit ist er mit dem Umbau des Schlosses Neustadt an der Elde (Neustadt-Glewe, unvollendet), dem Bau des Palais am Universitätsplatz in Rostock (1714), dem Ballhaus des Herzogs in Hamburg (1711–1712, 1892 abgetragen) und der Fertigstellung der von Jacob Reutz 1708 begonnenen Kirche St. Nikolai auf der Schelfe (Schelfkirche) in Schwerin betraut. Sturm blieb bis 1719 in Mecklenburg, bis ihn Fürst Ludwig Rudolph von Blankenburg, späterer Herzog von Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel, im Mai jenes Jahres zum Rat und Baudirektor ernannte, dort starb er bereits am 6. Juni 1719. Sein Sohn Georg Christoph Sturm (1698–1763) war erster Braunschweiger Hofbaumeister. Sturm erlangte vor allen mit seinem systematisch aufgebauten architekturtheoretischen Werk große Bedeutung, weniger durch seine Tätigkeit als Baumeister. Er veröffentlichte neben Schriften zu theologischen und mathematischen Fragen etwa 40 Werke zu Themen der Architektur und des Ingenieurbaus. Damit beeinflusste Sturm die deutsche Baukunst des 18. Jahrhunderts nachhaltig. Seine Systematik basiert auf der Lehre seines Vorbildes Nicolaus Goldmann, dessen Manuskript einer \"Civil-Baukunst\" er in einer kommentierten Version ab 1696 erstmals publizierte und anschließend durch eigene Erweiterungen umfangreich ergänzte und auffächerte. In der auf Goldmanns Manuskript beruhenden „Vollständigen Anweisung zu der Civil Bau-Kunst“ (1696), Kapitel 3, „von denen Bücher schreiben, welche von der Baukunst gehandelt haben“ zitiert Goldmann/Sturm u.a. die Werke von Vitruv, Leon Battista Alberti, Sebastiano Serlio, Andrea Palladio und Vincenzo Scamozzi. Erwähnenswert sind auch seine Übertragungen von Augustin Charles Daviliers Civilbaukunst (1699) und mehrere Schriften zum Festungs-, Mühlen- und Wasserbau, in denen er Erfahrungen von zwei Studienreisen nach Frankreich (1699) und in die Niederlande (1697) verarbeitete.
