With Observations upon Matters of Fact; tending to clear the Texts of the Sacred Scriptures, and confute the vulgar Errors about that Point.… And Also Two Sermons. London: R. Knaplock and D. Midwinter, 1718. Octavo, period-style full brown speckled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, red morocco spine label. $2800.First edition, with dramatic accounts of witchcraft trials and a chapter debunking Cotton Mather and the New England witch-hunters.British clergyman Francis Hutchinson was ""the man who gave the coup de grace to the witch delusion in England"" (Robbins), leveling ""a final and deadly blow at the dying superstition"" (Notestein). ""Of most interest to him were the witchcraft accusations at Boston and Salem, and… [the case] of Jane Wenham (1712), which provoked intense passions and vicious politicking… Hutchinson's account of witchcraft is thoroughly modern—a history book 'of the moment'… and his carefully modest appeal for reform of the laws on witchcraft was indeed heeded, although not for a further decade and a half"" (Gibson, Witchcraft and Society, 240-41). Hutchinson's landmark work on Witchcraft is ""full of valuable historical details, with many particulars collected by personal inquiry from survivors"" (DNB), and features ""a chronological table [including] those who were burnt as witches in New England"" (Allibone, 927). Including chapters on ""The Suffolk Witches"" and ""The Witchcrafts at Boston & in New England."" Bound with half title and one leaf of publishe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nachdruck der Ausgabe von 1695, die selbst ein Nachdruck der Frankfurter Ausgabe von 1632 ist. Die erste Auflage war im Jahr zuvor in Rinteln erschienen, ebenfalls ohne Benennung des Verfassers. Der Jesuit Spee wurde 1627 Beichtvater der als \"Hexen\" zum Verbrennungstod verurteilten Frauen und Kinder in Würzburg. Aus dieser grauenhaften Erfahrung heraus schrieb er das wirkungsmächtige Buch gegen den Hexenwahn. \"Wenn auch nicht die früheste Schrift gegen die Hexenwahn, so war es doch die erste erfolgreiche: sofort nach Amtsantritt als Kurfürst von Mainz verbot Johann Philipp van Schönborn alle weiteren Hexenverbrennungen, die wenig Jahre zuvor bei Schriftstellern wie Albertinus noch aktive Unterstützung gefunden haben\" (Dünnhaupt p.3928).

HUNTER, William.
1718. Choulant, pp. 296-297; ESTC T137584; Gaskell 56; Heirs of Hippocrates 942; Roberts & Tomlinson, pp. 460-465. 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.

This Act, which first formally involved the British Government in the practice of transportation, was discontinued with the War of Independence in 1776, but lay at the heart of the renewal of the practice in the mid-1780s when the colony in New South Wales was being planned. As a result, this Act should be considered central to the pre-history of Botany Bay.The Act begins lamenting the present state of affairs, where thieves sent to the West Indies regularly return to crime with a high incidence of capital punishment for such reprobates. This dire situation is contrasted with a significant labour shortage: 'in many of His Majesty's colonies and plantations in America, there is a great want of servants, who by their labour and industry might be the means of improving and making the said colonies and plantations more useful to this nation.' Although now formalised as government policy, this Act would still rely on private merchants who could, moreover, profit from the sale of the convicts once they had arrived in the New World.As a result, the Act promotes transportation to America for a term of seven years as an alternative to the usual punishments for larceny - flogging, branding of the ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHEREAU, François, the elder (1680-1729), 1718 after LARGILLIERE, Nicholas de (1656-1746)
: 1718 : Paris : Engraved portrait, image 389 x 276mm; plate mark 400 x 290mm; leaf 565 x 418mm. A fine impression with good margins, untrimmed edges. : A fine portrait of Mathieu François Geoffroy (1644-1708), French pharmacist and holder of various offices of the Pharmaceutical Society of Paris. As the legend explains it was commissioned as an act of filial piety by his second son, Claude Joseph. Later, in 1737, he commissioned a similar portrait of his brother, Etienne François. Largillière specialised in portraits of the rich middle classes and his output was prodigious. He was director of the Académie Royale in his eighties, and was pivotal in the transition from the baroque to the rococo portrait style during the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV.

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 ex … [Click Below for Full Description]

KEPLER, Johannes.
First edition Frankfurt & Leipzig: 1718. An exceptional copy, in the original publisher's interim boards, of the first printing of Kepler's scientific correspondence, edited by Michael Gottlieb Hansch, which also contains the first biography of Kepler. "The thousands of MS sheets left at Kepler's death went to his son Ludwig, who promised publication but lacked both the time and the scientific knowledge for the undertaking. After Ludwig's death the Danzig astronomer Johannes Hevelius acquired the collection and published a brief inventory in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1674. In 1707 Michael Gottlieb Hansch obtained the material with the intention of publishing it, and in 1718 he produced [with the assistance of Leibniz, ref. Caspar: Kepler, p.366] 'Joannis Kepleri aliorumque epistolae mutuae', a large folio vol. containing 77 letters by Kepler and 407 to him." (D.S.B. vol. VII, p.309). Among those with whom Kepler corresponded were Tycho Brahe, Galileo, Scheiner, Bayer, Scaliger, Harriot, etc. Many of the letters are lengthy scientific treatises. The work is divided into the following parts: an introduction to the history of mathematics and astronomy leading up to Kepler's time; "the earliest presentation of Kepler's life" (Caspar: Kepler, p.13); an index to the 16th and 17th century scientists mentioned in the letters; and an extensive bibliography of Kepler's writings; and the letters. (Brewster: The Martyrs of Science, pp. 252-254:) Kepler "left behind him twenty-two volumes of manuscripts, seven of which contain his epistolary correspondence.
