LE BRUYN, Cornelius.
Amsterdam: Les Freres Wetstein, 1718. 2 volumes, folio (330 x 206 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, skilfully rebacked with the original spines laid down, new red and green labels, spines gilt in compartments, edges sprinkled red. From the library of the Earl of Camden, armorial bookplates and press-marks to the front pastedowns. Slightly rubbed on the boards, light toning, but a very good set. Allegorical frontispiece by Picart, portrait of Le Bruyn by G. Valck after G. Kneller, 114 plates, 14 of them folding, and 57 double-page, and 43 full-page showing 491 views, 3 folding maps, engraved headpiece and 44 illustrations, half-titles bound in, titles printed in red and black. First edition in French of one of the principal accounts of Russia published during the 18th century, originally issued in Dutch, Amsterdam 1711. Cornelis de Bruyn, the Dutch traveller and painter, also known for his account of his journey through the Levant, was the first traveller to whom the tsar gave permission to make drawings of the towns and villages in the Russian provinces, and the superb engravings are from on-the-spot drawings by the author. The book is arguably the best authority for costumes of the era in the countries visited, for the Assyrian antiquities of Persepolis at that time, and for the views of cities and their natural history. His account also "details the route taken by Everard Ysbrants Ides, the Russian ambassador to China, and contains an account of his encounter with William Dampier at Batavia. In 1714 De Bruyn published a pamphlet discussing the differences between his engr … [Click Below for Full Description]

NEWTON, Isaac
London: W. & J. Innys, 1718. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Longus
Paris: Not Stated, 1718. Bound in the original leather with gilt lettering and decoration. Scarce. A very important work, of which only 250 copies were said to have been printed. Here in the original leather binding and exceptional unrestored condition. The plates are engraved by Benoit Audran after Phillipe d'Orleans, Regent of France from 1715, under the instruction of Coypel in 1714, with the frontis after Coypel himself. Without 'des Petits Pieds' from the 1728 edition which sometimes is bound in later but is not meant to be in the original first edition as it was suppressed until 1728. This is clearly the original binding and is untouched. Collated, complete. With 'Bibliotheque de Mr A. Houbigant' bookseller labels on the front and rear pastedowns. Daphnis and Chloé is the only known work of the 2nd century AD Greek novelist and romancer Longus. Its style is rhetorical and pastoral, its shepherds and shepherdesses are wholly conventional, but the author imparts human interest to this idealized world. Daphnis and Chloe resembles a modern novel more than does its chief rival among Greek erotic romances. Longus was a Greek novelist and romancer, and author of Daphnis and Chloé. Very little is known of his life, and it is assumed that he lived on the isle of Lesbos, the setting for Daphnis and Chloe, during the 2nd century AD. It has been suggested that the name Longus is merely a misinterpretation of the last word of Daphnis and Chloe's original title in the Florentine manuscript. If his name was really Longus, he was probably a freedman of some Roman family which bore th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Craig, John
Londini [London]: Ex Officina Pearsoniana, 1718. SOLE EDITION, 4to, pp. [viii], 92. Early twentieth-century half dark green roan, marbled paper boards, spine lettered in gilt. Some spotting, small piece of blank corner torn from final leaf. Corners a bit worn, spine and joints repaired and hinges neatly relined. Institutional blind stamp to title-page causing several small perforations. An important early work using Newtonian calculus. John Craig (c.1663-1731) studied under David Gregory in Edinburgh before moving to London, where he became one of the first in Britain to grasp the importance of the calculus. He published several major works and was considered one of the most important mathematicians of his day. This work, the last major mathematical text that Craig published, had in fact been the first he began writing and features Newton's fluxional notation - Craig's other works demonstrate Leibniz's differential calculus, including the first appearance of the integral symbol in England.This book is also notable for its preface in which Craig recounts the process through which he discovered this calculus and his interactions with Newton, including showing him the manuscript.

Folio, pp. [ii]-xv + [xvi] errata + [1]-739 +blank + [22] index + [23] ads; full period calf stamped in black; contemporary morocco spine label gilt; boards starting to detach (with leather loss) but still held by cords; tips worn; several small dings and gouges; later hand-lettered library code to heel of spine; library ink stamp to top edge; bookplates to pastedown; ink stamp, embossed stamp, and library numerals to title leaf; embossed stamp to pp. 17-18; leaves generally clean; library pocket and electronic tag to rear pastedown; a reasonably attractive ex-library copy. Properly de-accessioned. Boards. Later edition printed in the year of the author's death. The first dialogue appears to have been printed under this title as early as 1691. The Dialogues have to do with the legitimacy of the claim for the divine right of Kings and the nature of English Constitutional government. Tyrrell also explores the question of under what circumstances, if any, a monarch may forfeit his title to the crown. The reigns considered include those of King William, the Norman, King James II, King William and Queen Mary, King Charles I, and others. Tyrrell (1643-1718) was a Whig historian and a friend of John Locke.

MOIVRE, ABRAHAM DE
London: William Pearson for the Author, 1718. First edition. FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST TEXTBOOK ON PROBABILITY THEORY. "De Moivre expanded his paper 'De mensura sortis' (written in 1711), which appeared in Philosophical Transactions, into The Doctrine of Chances (1718). Although the modern theory of probability had begun with the unpublished correspondence (1654) between Blaise Pascal and Pierre de Fermat and the treaties De Ratiociniis in Ludo Aleae (1657; 'On Ratiocination in Dice Games') by Christiaan Huygens of Holland, de Moivre's book greatly advanced probability study. The definition of statistical independence--namely, that the probability of a compound event composed of the intersection of statistically independent events is the product of the probabilities of its components--was first stated in de Moivre's Doctrine. Many problems in dice and other games were included, some of which appeared in the Swiss mathematician Jakob (Jacques) Bernoulli's Ars conjectandi (1713; 'The Conjectural Arts'), which was published before de Moivre's Doctrine but after his 'De mensura.' He derived the principles of probability from the mathematical expectation of events, just the reverse of present-day practice" (Britannica). Complete with dedication to Isaac Newton. London: W. Pearson for the Author, 1718. Quarto, modern antique-style paneled calf. Very minor scattered foxing; text generally clean with wide margins. A beautiful copy of a classic and highly influential work. Fine.

Première Edition Collective, en partie originale, des poèmes du diplomate anglais Matthew Prior (1664-1721). Cette édition de très grand format (280x457mm.) avait été dirigée par l'auteur lui-même, qui avait déployé de grands efforts pour réaliser un livre d'une qualité superlative, tant dans son exécution typographique que dans son illustration.

L'écrivain et homme politique Lord Chesterfield fut l'une des figures importantes des Lumières en Grande-Bretagne; connu entre autres de Voltaire, Montesquieu et Vincent de Gournay, il montra de remarquables qualités tout au long de sa carrière de diplomate et d'homme politique, notamment durant son administration de l'Irlande de 1744 à 1746, qui obtint de brillants résultats. L'illustration se compose d'un frontispice gravé et de nombreux bandeaux, initiales et culs de lampe. Rousseurs aux premiers feuillets. Très bon exemplaire dans sa reliure anglaise d'origine (restaurée). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

MOIVRE, Abraham de.
London: W[illiam]. Pearson for the Author, 1718. First edition. First edition, and an unusually fine copy without any restoration, of this classic on the theory of probability, the first original work on the subject in English. "De Moivre's book on chances is considered the foundation for the field of probability and statistics" (Tomash). "De Moivre's masterpiece is The Doctrine of Chances" (DSB). "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). "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" (Babson 181). De Moivre's interest in probability was raised by Pierre-Rémond de Montmort's Essay d'analyse sur les jeux de hazard (1708), the first separately-published work on probability. "The [Doctrine] is in part the result of a competition between De Moivre on the one hand and Montmort together with Nikolaus Bernoulli on the other. De Moivre claimed that his representation of the solutions of the then current problems tended to be more general than those of Montmort, which Montmort resented very much. This situation led to some arguments between the two men, which finally were resolved by Montmort's premature death in 1719 ... De Moivre had d … [Click Below for Full Description]

One of the oldest Libraries of Scotland, no Library stickers, only registration number on inside covers! = Brunet III, p.534-35. The collected works of Saint John Chrysostom, archibishop and patriarch of Costantinople, probably the finest preacher of every time. Chrysostomos, anglicized as Chrysostom, means "golden-mouthed" in Greek and denotes his celebrated eloquence. Chrysostom was among the most prolific authors in the early Christian Church, The Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches honor him as a saint and count him among the Three Holy Hierarchs, together with Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzus. He is recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church as a saint and as a Doctor of the Church. The Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria also recognizes John Chrysostom as a saint. John Chrysostom's main works are a massive collection of biblical commentaries (scriptural homilies). His treatise on the priesthood and on divine nature are also well known. . His Adversus Judeus is notorious for articulating the characterization of Jews as "christ-killers" and denouncing "Judaizers", Christians who congregate in synagogues and observe Jewish rituals (like circumcision) and holidays in order to imitate the ear … [Click Below for Full Description]

Craig, John
Ex Officina Pearsoniana, Londini [London], 1718. SOLE EDITION, 4to, pp. [viii], 92. Early twentieth-century half dark green roan, marbled paper boards, spine lettered in gilt. Some spotting, small piece of blank corner torn from final leaf. Corners a bit worn, spine and joints repaired and hinges neatly relined. Institutional blind stamp to title-page causing several small perforations. An important early work using Newtonian calculus. John Craig (c.1663-1731) studied under David Gregory in Edinburgh before moving to London, where he became one of the first in Britain to grasp the importance of the calculus. He published several major works and was considered one of the most important mathematicians of his day. This work, the last major mathematical text that Craig published, had in fact been the first he began writing and features Newton's fluxional notation - Craig's other works demonstrate Leibniz's differential calculus, including the first appearance of the integral symbol in England.This book is also notable for its preface in which Craig recounts the process through which he discovered this calculus and his interactions with Newton, including showing him the manuscript.

Plein veau moucheté, dos à nerf orné (Reliure de l'époque restaurée). Intéressant recueil des deux principaux ouvrages écrits contre Locke par le philosophe et prélat italien d'expression française Giacintho Sigismondo Gerdil (1718-1802), auteur de plusieurs ouvrages philosophiques et scientifiques. 1). Edition Originale. "Gerdil y démontre que, des principes de Locke lui-même, il suit que l'âme est immatérielle. Dans sa réfutation du fameux doute de Locke relativement à la possibilité de la matière pensante, il combat avec un égal succès, le philosophe anglais, Montesquieu et Voltaire" (Quérard). Gerdil était cartésien mais proche également des conceptions de Leibnitz. "Il oppose la théorie de l'étendue intelligible au sensualisme de Locke" (Franck). Cet exemplaire comporte un cahier supplémentaire relié entre les pages 266-267, paginé à nouveau 267-282 et intitulé "Supplément à l'Eclaircissement sur la pression de l'Ether, avec une explication de la fixité de l'air". Ce supplément manque à la plupart des exemplaires consultés. 2). Edition Originale de cette défense de Malebranche contre les attaques de Locke. Elle est divisée en neuf sections: "Des idées en général, et des différentes manières d'appercevoir les objets", "Défense du sentiment du P.

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.

Two volumes, 4to, pp.xlii (a1-4 misbound), 402; [iv], 398, [18, index]; with 149 plates, plans, and maps (of 153), 7 folding. A handsomely bound set in 20th-century tan calf, spines with raised bands, gilt. Some spotting and one stain to bottom margin throughout. A number of plates heavily foxed, two plates badly torn, but without damage to images. Lacking four plates, depicting the women of Milo, Pathmos, a map of Pathmos, and Gallipoli. Armorial bookplates of Richard Grosvenor of Eaton relaid on pastedowns. Joseph Pitton de Tournefort (1656-1708), a French botanist, was appointed assistant at the Jardin des Plantes in 1683. At the suggestion of Louis Phélypeaux, Comte de Ponchartrain, he was sent on a mission to the Levant by Louis XIV in 1700, accompanied by the artist Claude Aubriet, and the German botanist Andreas Gundelsheimer. Tournefort travelled extensively in the Greek islands, including Crete, and proceeded to Constantinople, which he discusses in great detail. From Constantinople, he travelled along the Black Sea coast, to Georgia, and Armenia, returning to Paris in 1702. The expedition was a success: Tournefort collected 1356 previously unrecorded botanical specimens, and Aubriet sketched specimens, people, and buildings, as well as maps of a number of the places visited. The engraved illustrations in our copy are all after Aubriet's drawings, bar the large folding map. This edition not in Atabey or Blackmer [Attributes: First Edition]

Longus
Paris: Not Stated, 1718. Bound in the original leather with gilt lettering and decoration. Scarce. A very important work, of which only 250 copies were said to have been printed. Here in the original leather binding and exceptional unrestored condition. The plates are engraved by Benoit Audran after Phillipe d'Orleans, Regent of France from 1715, under the instruction of Coypel in 1714, with the frontis after Coypel himself. Without 'des Petits Pieds' from the 1728 edition which sometimes is bound in later but is not meant to be in the original first edition as it was suppressed until 1728. This is clearly the original binding and is untouched. Collated, complete. With 'Bibliotheque de Mr A. Houbigant' bookseller labels on the front and rear pastedowns. Daphnis and Chloé is the only known work of the 2nd century AD Greek novelist and romancer Longus. Its style is rhetorical and pastoral, its shepherds and shepherdesses are wholly conventional, but the author imparts human interest to this idealized world. Daphnis and Chloe resembles a modern novel more than does its chief rival among Greek erotic romances. Longus was a Greek novelist and romancer, and author of Daphnis and Chloé.

Longus
Paris: Not Stated, 1718. Bound in the original leather with gilt lettering and decoration. Scarce. A very important work, of which only 250 copies were said to have been printed. Here in the original leather binding and exceptional unrestored condition. The plates are engraved by Benoit Audran after Phillipe d'Orleans, Regent of France from 1715, under the instruction of Coypel in 1714, with the frontis after Coypel himself. Without 'des Petits Pieds' from the 1728 edition which sometimes is bound in later but is not meant to be in the original first edition as it was suppressed until 1728. This is clearly the original binding and is untouched. Collated, complete. With 'Bibliotheque de Mr A. Houbigant' bookseller labels on the front and rear pastedowns.

Florence [Firenze]: Tartini, 1718. SECOND EDITION, THE FIRST "COMPLETE" EDITION. Contemporary vellum. Very Good. SECOND EDITION, THE FIRST "COMPLETE" EDITION, of Galileo's collected works; an important edition containing a wealth of material (nearly all of volume 3) not included in the 1655-56 first collected edition. The first two volumes are essentially a reprint of the 1655-56 Bologna edition, while the third volume contains previously unpublished material. Sometimes referred to as the "first complete edition", although this edition does not include the Dialogo nor the Letter to the Grand Duchess Cristina, both of which were still on the Index Prohibitorum. Edited by Tommaso Buonaventuri.Complete with engraved frontispiece portrait of Galileo, engraved vignette with view of Florence on first title page; with title page printed in red and black, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, woodcut diagrams, folding engraved plate.Firenze [Florence]: Tartini, 1718. Quarto, contemporary full vellum with leather labels; edges speckled red. Three volumes. A few cosmetic cracks to vellum at joints. Faint evidence of stamp removal on title pages, two small spots of dampstaining on top margin of first few leaves of vol 1; tiny worming on first few leaves of vol 3. Text extremely clean with wide margins. A beautiful set.
