BUFFON, Georges Louis Leclerc, Comte de.
Ad 1: Nissen ZBI, 737; STCN (2 copies); ad 2: STCN (3 copies); cf. Nissen ZBI, 3639 (German editions). Ad 1: A separately published chapter from Buffon's Algemeene en byzondere natuurlijke historie (the Dutch translation of Buffon's Histoire naturelle), dealing with the hippopotamus, containing the same engraved plate, depicting the hippopotamus on a river bank, as the French edition published by Schneider at Amsterdam. The Dutch chapter contains some new additions, not included in the original French, including an interesting description by the Amsterdam physician J.C. Klockner of the preparation and stuffing of a dead hippopotamus that was shipped from the Cape of Good Hope to Amsterdam.Ad 2: First edition of the Dutch translation of Versuche mit Schnecken by the German entomologist, mycologist and clergyman Jacob Christian Schäffer (1718-1790). It is an account of many experiments executed on several species of snails to find out whether the heads, including the tentacles, grow back after decapitation, which Schäffer finds out to be the case. It includes 7 plates, all coloured by hand, showing different species of snails in different stages after their decapitation.Title-page slightly damaged, as if something was pasted on it and later removed, hardly affecting the text, slightly creased throughout with some occasional minor stains or foxing. Binding rubbed along the extremities with partly cracked hinges. Overall in good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving most of the deckles intact.

Leyden, Johannes Muller, the widow of Cornelis Boutesteyn, and Samuel Luchtmans, 1718. (gegraveerde titelpagina, 21) 302, (2) 134, (14) 164, (2) 66 folia. Origineel Perkament met ribben en stempels, Folio H. 43 x B. 27 x D. 12 cm. (Zeer fraaie Statenbijbel in heldere druk op zeer wit papier, in een originele perkamenten band, het is zeer zeldzaam om een Bijbel uit deze tijd gebonden te zien in perkament. De onderkant van de rug is vakkundig gerestaureerd en de linten zijn vernieuwd. Met de 6 uitvouwbare kaarten van Cornelis Danckerts II. Deze 6 bijbelkaarten werden rond 1710 gegraveerd door Albert Schut, een graveur die werkzaam was van 1708 tot 1713. De wereldkaart en de kaart over de zendingsreizen van Paulus zijn gewone, enigzins bijgewerkte atlaskaarten. Op de laatste kaart staan zelf Nederlandse plaatsnamen te lezen, zoals Coeverden en Staveren of het Waddeneiland Schierman Ooge, namen waar Paulus wel nooit van gehoord zal hebben. De kaarten over het paradijs, de woestijnreis en het Beloofde Land lijken veel op de gelijknamige kaarten van Nicolaes Visscher. Alles is veel soberder van opzet, meestal zonder inzetten en engeltjes, meer in de Franse stijl, welke in de achttiende eeuw populair werd. De Jeruzalemkaart, volgens het ontwerp van Villalpando, is sterk verwant aan die van de familie Keur. Voor het drukken van deze Bijbel werd gebruik gemaakt van gegoten platen, waarop de complete tekst van de te drukken Bijbel stond. Luchtmans was de enige drukker die hiervan gebruik heeft gemaakt.)(engraved titlepage, 21) 302, (2) 134, (14) 164, (2) 66 folia. Contemporary blind- … [Click Below for Full Description]

1718. Engraved vignette on title and engraved head- & tailpieces. 2 p.l., xiv, 175 pp. Large 4to, cont. mottled calf (expertly rebacked & recornered by Aquarius), spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: W. Pearson for the Author, 1718. First edition and a fine copy of this classic on the theory of probability; it is dedicated to Isaac Newton who was a personal friend of the author. "His work on the theory of probability surpasses anything done by any other mathematician except P.S. Laplace. His principal contributions are his investigations respecting the Duration of Play, his Theory of Recurring Series, and his extension of the value of Daniel Bernoulli's theorem by the aid of Stirling's theorem."-Cajori, A History of Mathematics, p. 230. Nice copy. ❧ Babson 181-"He was among the intimate friends of Newton, to whom this book is dedicated. It is the second book devoted entirely to the theory of probability and a classic on the subject." Stigler, The History of Statistics, pp. 70-85. Tomash M 114.

Paris (Au Bonnet Royal) 1718. "Saragosse" identified himself as a "Marchand Mercier" situated under the Charniers des Saint-Innocens in the middle of the Galerie. As the solid block of printed text tells us, he made and sold all types of "bonnets" including: those of velvets, satin, gold and silver; embroidery; headress for balls, including those made with feathers, tufts, ribbons; bonnets for priests, lawyers and choristers . Not to mention: English pins; silk tassels; silk sashes or belts; paper skull-caps, and much more. The "Saragosse" was located in the vicinity of the charnel houses built against the cemetery wall of the old Cimetière des Innocents (demolished in 1780) a popular site for boutiques and merchants. Today the spot is near Les Halles and the Place Joachim-du Bellay. Rare; we find no example listed in any online catalogues. Single sheet of laid paper (24 x 18.3 cm). Original letterpress on laid paper with a few ink marks in margins and on the back; chip measuring 3.10 x 1.5 cm in top margin not affecting border or text. *** Please note: Shipment of new orders will not be processed before January 4, 2019.

London: W. & J. Innys, 1718. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (196 x 122 mm). [8], 382, [2] pp., including advertisement leaf and 12 folding engraved plates bound at end. Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, spine with 5 raised bands gilt-lettered in first compartment (corners repaired, extremities little rubbed). Text with light even browning, occasional very minor spotting. A fine, wide-margined copy. ---- Babson 134, Gray 176, Wallis 176, PMM172 (first ed.). SECOND EDITION (first octavo), second issue with title dated 1718 but with the leaf of advertisements at end (Babson states this leaf is missing in this issue). The mathematical tracts were omitted 'as not belonging to the subject', and the number of queries at the end of book three was increased from 16 to 31, including the celebrated query no. 28 on the nature of light 'Are not all Hypotheses erroneous which have hitherto been invented for explaining the Phenomena of Light, by new Modification of the Rays?' (Babson 134). Newton's classic work describing his fundamental experiments on the color spectrum also explains such optical phenomena as the rainbow, "Newton's rings," and the double refraction of the Icelandic spar. Newton opens his study with the claim, "My Design in this Book is not to explain the Properties of Light by Hypotheses, but to propose and prove them by Reason and Experiments." Because of Newton's reliance on scientific method, Opticks remained for over a century "a work of great authority; 'supreme' in Andrade's works 'as a record of experiment and scientific deduction from e … [Click Below for Full Description]
