         A System of Experimental Philosophy Prov'd by Mechanicks, wherein the principles and laws of Physicks, Mechanicks, Hydrostaticks, and Opticks, are demonstrated and explained at large, by a great number of curious experiments. . .

      London:: Printed for B. Creake, ... J. Sackfield ...; And sold by W. Mears, ... 1719., 1719. Sm. 4to. [xxii], 201, [5] pp. 10 folding engraved copperplates, 5 figs. (pp. 24, 54, 75, 112), half-title is a publisher's ad for Boerhaave, rear publisher's ads [2 ff.], head and tail-pieces; title edges chipped. With errata. Title (+ p.101) perforated stamp and with a rubber stamp on verso, of the John Crerar Library, eight plates with the ex-library rubber stamp on versos; waterstained throughout. WITH FREQUENT EARLY INK CORRECTIONAL NOTES. Modern half blind-stamped dark calf, gilt spine title, raised bands, marbled paper over boards, new endleaves, bindery ticket at rear: Pat M. Bruno. Inscription on recto of front blank (verso is ad for Boerhaave book), "W. --- 1720 Power." SPURIOUS EDITION OF DESAGULIERS' FAMOUS PRIVATE LECTURES CONTAINING NOTES ON BOYLE'S AIR PUMP AND NEWTON ON COLOR THEORY. FIRST ENLARGED EDITION, early issue, without "All carefully Examined and Corrected by Mr. Desaguliers" on title [which otherwise is re-titled, "Lectures of Experimental Philosophy"]. Includes: Sir Isaac Newton's Colours. Proposition. Lights which differ in Colour, differ also in Degrees of Refrangibility. Initially published without the author's permission and then, by evidence of the printed Preface, agreed to issue the book with an erratum. There are multiple forms of this edition as different copies collate differently (Andrade, Kenney, Honeyman copies). The Honeyman copy, called a second edition, has two title-pages, and the Preface by Desaguliers, with an imprint of 1719. There are also differences in the title-pages. The fiasco of the unauthorized edition is the cause of the various issue differences. "Perhaps Dawson hoped ... to ingratiate himself with his patron, but instead he incurred the wrath of the lecturer. Immediately Desaguliers became aware of the book, which he called 'ill put together, sadly transcrib'd and worse corrected', he approached the booksellers. He found that two-thirds of the imprint had already been sold by Messrs Mears, Creake and Sackfield, but they paid him ten guineas 'to pacifie me'. They also promised to insert into all remaining copies a preface that Desaguliers would write, together with a substantial errata. The preface follows the Dawson dedication in some copies of the book entitled, A System of Experimental Philosophy, but precedes it in another version called Lectures in Experimental Philosophy." See: Carpenter, pp. 34-5, 119. Contents: Mechanical experiments, Mechanical powers & definitions; How to make a heavy Body seem to rise it self; gravity, balance, leaver, pulley, wheel axle, wedge, screw, laws of nature, hydrostatics; Description of Robert Boyle's Air-Pump (uses & experiments); How to make an air vacuum; Barometers, Thermometers, Hydrometers; Catoptrichs; Dioptrichs; Sir Isaac Newton's Colours; Condensing Engine; "Rowley's Horary being a machine to represent the Motion of the Moon about the Earth, and the Earth, Venus and Mercury about the Sun." The preface, written by Desaguliers himself, explains that this volume of lectures was released "before I designed to publish them." He then retells how Paul Dawson "took a copy of the lectures ... that they may be service to him when he went thro' my courses, and they were afterwards sold and published without my knowledge." He obtained a copy of the text and made numerous corrections - thus the micro-print 1 ½ page errata. The he invites the owner to annotate the book throughout "before he begins to read the lectures." And indeed, the owner named Powers did annotate this copy - clear evidence he read that Preface. (A2-3). The DNB asserts that Desaguliers, "held in great esteem by Sir Isaac Newton," "is said to have been the first to deliver learned lectures to general audiences. Lectures by him, at his London house were widely attended and were made attractive by experiments." In addition it mentions that Paul Dawson was responsible for the work and that Desaguliers himself "disavowed" himself of the edition. - DNB (pp. 850-1). Nicholas A Hans describes the types of persons attending Desaguliers' lectures: "merchants, craftsmen and clerks, and his private audiences consisted of gentlemen and courtiers and included ladies as well." - Nicholas A Hans, New Trends in Education in the Eighteenth Century, (1951), p. 141. Westfall says of Desaguliers, he "became a fixture at the meetings [of the Royal Society], where he carried out sets of experiments intimately related to various aspects of Newtonian natural philosophy. Some of his experiments, such as the transmission of heat through a vacuum, influenced Newton's views, and other found their way into the third edition of the Principia." - Never at Rest, pp. 685-6. Writing for the DSB, A. Rupert Hall, points out that Desaguliers did not produce his own version of these lectures until 1734, "when he took occasion to denounce this unauthorized version..." - DSB, IV, pp. 43-6. John Theophilus Desaguliers (1683-1744), born at La Rochelle, emigrated to England in 1685 [as a Huguenot refugee, hidden in a tub at 2-years of age], studied at Oxford, he became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1714. As the Society's experimenter and a close friend of Newton he often verified Newton's theories through experimentation. "In 1717 he published Physico-Mechanical Lectures, an eighty-page abstract of the twenty-two lectures of his course. Although not authorized by Desaguliers, the present work is the first full account of his lectures, edited by his student Paul Dawson. Primarily of interest as a textbook of Newtonian physics, many chemical topics are included. The first issue appeared with the title A System of Experimental Philosophy."

         Discours sur la Polysynodie, où l'on démontre que la Polysinodie, ou pluralité des Conseils, est la forme la plus avantageuse pour un Roi, et pour son royaume.

      À Amsterdam, chez Du Villard et Changuion 1719 - in-12, [20]-265-[6]-[12] pp., veau moucheté, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge (rel. de l'époque). Seconde édition après l'édition in-4 de 1718. Le Discours sur la Polysynodie qui blâmait ouvertement la politique de gloire personnelle de Louis XIV fit scandale à la cour et, sur l'injonction du Régent, fit exclure son auteur de l'Académie (comme le confirme d'ailleurs une note manuscrite ancienne sur la page de garde). Sa disgrâce ne l'empêcha pourtant pas de continuer ses critiques et d'établir des projets dans le sens de l'amélioration du sort de l'humanité. Bon exemplaire malgré deux coins usés.

Holdsworth thought highly of this book, noting its "a learned book-the author tells us that he had consulted nearly a hundred authorities; the idea of making such a book was original; and the main features of the constitution are set out." In his preface, Jacob indicates that he did not write this treatise on England's Constitution for the landed gentry exclusively, but for "gentlemen of all ranks," that is, the literate general public. This distinction is significant. Jacob, though certainly interested in boosting sales by attracting the widest audience possible, was an idealist who believed that widespread knowledge of the law would help create a more just society. This is also evident in his other publications, such as A Tr.

Contemporary full vellum binding, boards a bit bowed (as are commonly seen with old vellum bindings). A bit of foxing, mainly in the margins. Printed on good paper. Small hole to the flyleaf. Still a very nice copy indeed. * Very scarce. Magnificent work from the Vatican: Michael Mercati (1541-96), director of the Vatican Botanical Garden, was a could-have-been groundbreaking paleonthologist, if he hadn't died before completing this work. It is built on his vast and systematic collection of minerals, fossils and shells, which were cased in 19 large cabinets in his "Metallotheca" (as a supplement to the "Bibliotheca", but also with a section on marble samples, described from some of the newly found antique masterpieces situated in the Vatican, as "Laocoon" and "Apollo Belvedere". This work - written in the 16th century - would surely have placed him as one of the founding fathers of paleonthology and geology, but due to his death, the work was not completed, but only consisted of the magnificent copperplate engravings (a highlight of renaissance skills) and approximately half of the texts for the various cabinets done. An attempt to get the work published was made by Carlo Roberti Dati in the 17th century, but to no avail. Other pioneers like Nicolaus Steno (1638-86) saw - and was influenced by - the unfinished work in the Vatican, and used one of the most iconic copperplates (of a shark skull) in his Canis carchariae dissectum caput (1667). When the Metallotheca was finally published in 1717, its discoveries were mainly sadly overtaken by 125 years of research. Nevertheless the finished book was a masterpiece of prints and typography (with text mainly in Latin, but also in Greek, Hebrew and Arabic), making a monument for the neglected genius. In 1719, an even more magnificent B-issue was made: The main book block was still the first edition, but a new title page was issued (stating 1719) and 20 of the plates were remade and added, notably both Laocoon and Apollo Belvedere, making artistically new impressions of them. One of the highlights of renaissance scientific works, though printed with 125 years delay.** Some copies of the "Appendix" were published as a seperate book; apparently these have a frontespiece portrait of the editor Lancis. This frontespiece portrait is not present in this copy, but nor does it seem to have been there: the leaf signatures speak against it, and the book appears complete and comtemporarily bound.

Allerhand Jüdische Gebräuche Welche Die Juden in und ausser dem Tempel, bey allen und jeden Fest=Tagen, im Gebeth, im Opffern, in Beschneidungen, in Copulation, in Auslösung der Erstling, im Sterben und Begräbnissen, in Erbschafften, in Essen und Trincken und dergleichen mehr pflegen in acht zu nehmen. O. O., 1717; 7 Bll., 126 pp (vereinzelt falsch paginiert); insgesamt mehrere Initialen und Vignetten; beschädigter Lederbd. d. Zt. mit Fehlstellen und Wurmspuren (Vorsätze leimschattig); das erste Werk stärker gebräunt und mit längerem Bibliotheksvermerk von alter Hand auf dem Titel, das zweite leicht gebräunt. Späte Ausgabe eines weit verbreiteten antijüdischen Traktats, der angeblich auf dem verschollenen Werk "Ifham al-Yahud" des Mathematikers, Astronomen und Arztes as-Samaw'al Ibn Yahya al-Maghribi (Samuel Marochitanus) basiert; dieser war der Sohn eines marokkanischen Rabbiners und konvertierte 1163 zum Islam. Tatsächlich stammt das polemische Buch wohl zumindest teilweise vom Übersetzer, dem spanischen Dominikaner Alfonso Buenhombre (gest. 1353); unter dem Titel "Epistola Rabbi Samuelis" wurde es um 1480 in Venedig erstmals gedruckt. - Das Werk Kirchners, eines zum Christentum konvertierten Rabbiners, erschien erstmals 1716 und ist wegen seiner detaillierten Beschreibungen jüdischen Lebens von Wert; frühe Ausgaben sind wesentlich seltener als die überarbeiteten illustrierten Fassungen von 1724 und 1726.
