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.

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. SECOND EDITION, THE FIRST "COMPLETE" EDITION.

PHALARIS, spurious.)
Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1718. Oxford: Clarendon Press,, 1718. Octavo (191 x 118 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, covers tooled in blind, red speckled edges. Engraved frontispiece of Phalaris being burnt in the brazen bull; printer's device on title page. Mid-18th-century bookplate and ownership signature of Charles Jenner to pastedown. Tiny wear to tips and minor mark to front cover, label lost. An excellent copy, contents clean and fresh, joints intact with very little wear to the binding. Second British edition in the original Greek, following the first of 1695, with translations into English having been printed in 1699 and 1706. The work is printed in Greek with the Latin translation underneath. Phalaris was a tyrant king in Sicily in the 6th century BC, who was rehabilitated by Lucian into a humane leader and a patron of literature. The present epistles, written in around the 2nd century and spuriously attributed to Phalaris, became popular when published by Charles Boyle, fourth earl of Orrery, in 1695, though their authorship led to controversy. In his 1699 treatise Dissertation on the Epistles of Phalaris the classical scholar Richard Bentley proved the Epistles were a Roman invention. The controversy is included by Jonathan Swift in The Battle of the Books. ESTC T144295.

Bound in contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, red morocco titling piece. FINE FIRST EDITION COPY, COMPLETE WITH ALL 34 ENGRAVED PLATES, OF JOBLOT'S RARE WORK ON MICROSCOPY. Louis Joblot (1645-1723), often neglected in the history of microscopy, was a contemporary of Antonie Philips van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), who is recognized as the first to observe and record microbes. Joblot was an equally innovative inventor and theorist in his own right. Born in 1645 in Bar-le-Duc, Lorraine to a prosperous merchant family, Joblot was appointed assistant professor of mathematics at the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1680 (he was appointed full professor in 1699). There he lectured art students on perspective, geometry, and optics, leading to his personal pursuit of microscopy during the period from 1680-1716. The publication of this work in 1718 established Joblot as the first French microscopist. The first half of the treatise is devoted to Joblot's innovative microscope desig … [Click Below for Full Description]

Poleni was the most prominent Italian hydraulics engineer of the early eighteenth century. "As an engineer, Poleni was a consultant in matters of water supply and flood control and an arbitrator between rulers of neighbouring states. His principal contributions to hydraulics were threefold. In his De Castellis of 1718 he cited measurements indicating the coefficient of contraction for a sharp-edges orifice to be 0.62, a considerable improvement upon Newton's value 1/√2. He also experimented with short tubes attached to the orifice and found that a maximum rate of eflux was obtained with an intermediate length of tube" (Rouse & Ince, History of hydraulics, p. 113).4to, 3 leaves, pp. 65, (1), 2 leaves (licence leaf and colophon with woodcut coat-of-arms), 1 stilted engraved plate.

Jmf Warmholtz 1310 för en genomgång om tron på Amazoner. Rikt illustrerat arbete om amazonerna. Pierre Petit (1617-87) var läkare och lärd författare i Paris och gav redan på 1680-talet ut ett kompendium med information från antika författare om amazonerna, "De amazonibus dissertatio". Den lärda debatten på 1600- och början av 1700-talet handlade framförallt om huruvida det har funnits sådana krigiska kvinnor och huruvida de i så fall levde för sig själva eller tillsammans med män. Petit är av övertygelsen att de har funnits och avbildar här många antika bildbevis för deras existens. Av intresse var förstås även var de hade bott. Enligt Olof Rudbeck bodde de i Jotunheim, d.v.s. i Sverige.

JOBLOT, Louis
1718. Paris: Collombat. 1718. Small quarto. Contemporary full calf, gilt spine with red morocco gilt label, marbled endpapers; pp. [x] + 78 + 96 + [v, contents], 34 plates, engraved headpieces; binding a little bumped to extremities, previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown, manuscript notes in ink to flyleaf, previous owner's signature to title page, internally very clean and bright, very good. First edition. Louis Joblot (1645-1723) is now overshadowed by his contemporary Leeuwenhoek but was an equally innovative scientist. In this volume, his landmark work and the first French book on microscopical research, he presents his own technical improvements to the microscope, his observations of protozoa and, crucially, his rejection of spontaneous generation. He observed many animalcules for the first time, classifiying them according to shape, and was the leading discoverer of infusoria until 1773, making this book an important document of early microbiology.

JOBLOT, Louis
1718. Paris: Collombat. 1718. Small quarto. Contemporary half calf; pp. [x] + 78 + 96 + [v, contents], 34 plates, engraved headpieces; binding a little rubbed, stain to pp. 7-8, otherwise very good. Provenance: with ownership signature of Lorenz Oken to front pastedown. Oken (1779 - 1851) was a leading German naturalist who, inspired by Kant and Goethe as much as by natural science, conceived of nature as a whole organism rather than a collection of discrete components, much in the manner of Humboldt. He produced his own system of animal classification based on the sophistication of the sense organs and noted many of the homologies between human and animal physiologies that, later in the nineteenth century, made clear the evolutionary origins of man. Also with the bookplates of W.H. van Seters, Dutch biliophile and writer, and Librarie Alain Brieux, the well-known Paris bookseller, to the front pastedown and an oval inkstamp bearing the word 'Geneve' to ffep.

Contemporary unlettered blind decorated calf, rubbed, spine ends just chipped, else quite clean with good margins; the Taussig copy. Printed by Eliz. Nutt, and R. Gosling . . . for J. Brown [etc.], London, 1718.
