        Impetus primi anatomici ex lustratus cadaveribus nati.

      Pieter van der Aa, Leiden 1721 - Cant, Arent (1695-1723). Impetus primi anatomici ex lustratus cadaveribus nati. . . . Large folio. [6] 28pp. Engraved title vignette, 6 folding engraved plates after drawings by the author. Leiden: for the author by Pieter vander Aa, 1721. 504 x 372 mm. Speckled calf c. 1721, gilt spine, a little worn & spotted, spine and corners repaired. Fore-edge of plate 6 repaired, a few tears and chipping to some margins, some damp stains mainly confined to final blank end-leaves, but otherwise very good. Russian library stamp on the verso of the title. From the library of Ira M. Rutkow, with his pencil signature on the rear flyleaf, and the collection of Dean S. Edell.First Edition. Cant, a pupil of Frederik Ruysch, was a skilled anatomist and artist whose ambitious plan to publish a great anatomical work was interrupted by his premature death at the age of 28. The present work represents the only volume of Cant's projected anatomy; it contains six large folding plates, drawn by the author, illustrating the anatomy of the head, heart, stomach, shoulder and knee joints, thoracic duct, etc. Cant was one of the few early anatomists to make use of the "grid-reference" identification system devised by Eustachius (1510/20 -1574), in which anatomical structures are located by means of numbered borders at the side and top of each plate; this method allows the anatomist to illustrate his figures without superimposed lettering or numbering.

      London: printed for Daniel Browne, Thomas Taylor, John Darby [etc], 1721. Folio. (20 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches). Mounted on guards throughout. Title printed in red and black with engraved vignette, 3pp. letterpress list of subscribers. 34 engraved double-page maps and town plans (comprising: 31 maps, all hand-coloured in outline, and 3 uncoloured town plans), 14pp. engraved coats-of-arms of the subscribers. 18th-century marbled calf expertly rebacked to style, covers with gilt fillet border, spine in eight compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration of stylized flower and foliage corner-pieces surrounding a lozenge-shaped area tooled with various small tools including crowns and flowerheads, comb-marbled endpapers Provenance: Dr. Charles Morley (West Basham, Norfolk, England, subscriber, see manuscript note on verso of plate XIII, and by descent to:) Dudley Vere Morley Baldus. A fine subscriber's copy of an atlas which Sabin notes is 'chiefly interesting for the copiousness of its information concerning America'.A fine complete copy of this great atlas, which besides the excellent maps and town plans, includes 393 pages of highly informative and historically important text. Shirley describes the genesis of the atlas: "Proposals for printing were advertised in the 'Post Boy' for October 1718, and the subscribers were invited by means of insertions in other newspapers subsequently. The atlas was claimed to be based on the best authors, particularly Cluverius, Breitius, Cellarius, Blaeu, Baudrand, Hoffman, the two Sansons, Lutys and other geographers. According to the dates on them, several of the maps were engraved between 1719 and the publication of the atlas in 1721. All the maps carry Senex's name, and those stating that they were 'Revis'd by J. Senex' are ... believed to be from plates previously owned or published by Christopher Browne'.The maps of American interest are titled as follows:1. 'A New Map of America... I.Senex... I.Harris Fecit' (North and South America).2. 'A New Map of the English Empire in America... Ion. Senex 1719... I.Harris sculp.' (Newfoundland in the north, to the tip of Florida, west to the Mississippi).3. 'A New Map of Virginia and Maryland And Improved Parts of Pennsylvania & New Jersey... 1719... I.Senex'.4. 'A New Map of the English Empire in the Ocean of America or West Indies... I.Senex... A New Map of the Island of Jamaica.' (Jamaica, Barbados, Bermuda, Tobago, Antigua and 'Christophers').5.

Ienefer... a New Map of ye Isthmus of Darien in America. the Bay of Panama, The Gulf of Vallona'. NMM 3:434; Phillips Atlases 563; Sabin 79124.

        The Select Works of Mr. John Dennis

      London - J. D., 1721 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The very scarce collectd works of John Denns, regarded as Englands first drama critic. The first volume contains two title pages with different dates. The first title page is a more detailed one, is dated 1721, with the second, shorter title page dated 1718. The second volume contains one title page only, dated 1718. John Dennis (1657 - January 6, 1734), was an English critic and dramatist, born in London, the son of a saddler. Neither the poems nor the plays of Dennis are much remembered, although one of his tragedies, a violent attack on the French in harmony with popular prejudice, entitled Liberty Asserted, was produced with great success at Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1704. Dennis is best remembered as a critic, and his earliest works, which lack the rancour that afterwards gained him the nickname of Furius, are regarded as his best. His sense of his own importance approached mania, and he is said to have desired the Duke of Marlborough to have a special clause inserted in the Treaty of Utrecht to secure him from French vengeance. Marlborough pointed out that although he had been a still greater enemy of the French nation, he had no fear for his own security. This tale and others of a similar nature may well be exaggerations prompted by his enemies, but the infirmities of character and temper indicated in them were real. Condition: These volume have been rebound with new pastedowns and end papers. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including a few marks to the boards and mild bumping to the spines. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright apart from a few handling marks and some minor brown spots on various pages throughout both text. The first title page of the first volume is spotted and somewhat discoloured. There are library stickers to both, front pastedowns and the remnants of stickers to both front, blank end papers. On the whole these books are in very good condition..

      London: William and John Innys, 1721 Complete with decorative headpieces, initials, 12 folding engraved plates, woodcut diagrams in text, errata and publishers ads. Contemporary calf, rebacked, covers worn; a couple of plates with small tears repaired, some browning and soiling, but still a good sound copy. Signatures of Mary Francis and John Burridge on the title page, and the bookplate of Arnold Thackray. Third edition, corrected. Regarded as one of the great classics of optics, this work expounds Newton?'s corpuscular or emission theory of light, and is the first work to contain his optical discoveries in a collected form. His set of ?"queries?" (the complete 31, up from 16 in the original edition of 1704) on the nature of matter was considered to be the most important feature of the Opticks and had a profound influence on scientific thought.According to Babson, page 68, ?"This is a reprint of the previous edition (1718, the second issue of second edition), save for a few corrections and the addition of one passage in the last sentence referring to Noah and his sons.?" (This edition was apparently shortened by Newton.) Our copy contains the two pages of publisher?'s advertisements from the previous edition of 1718 (see Babson, 133).

"Malebranche tente de mettre en accord le dogme catholique et une philosophie inspiree de Descartes pour les unir dans la 'recherche de la verite' ( ). Ce n'est pas la faute d'un mauvais hasard si cette somme a l'intention apologetique fut mise a l'Index des 1709 et servit au XVIIIe siecle aux deistes. En favorisant la recherche de verites purement humaines, en identifiant 'Raison' et 'Verbe divin', entendement divin et principe general de toutes choses, creation divine et lois physiques mecanistes, Malebranche facilitait la naissance du 'Grand Horloger' " (En Francais dans le texte, n°111).

        PLAN DU PORT LOUIS. DANS L'ILE DE FRANCE, SITUÉ PAR LES 20 DEGRÉS 5 MINUTES DE LATITUDE SUD ET PAR 73 DEGRÉS DE LONGITUDE DE TÉNÉRIF. GÉOMETRIQUEMENT LEVÉ SUR LES LIEUX. EN 1721. Par le Chevalier Garnier de Fougerai [manuscript title]

      [N.p., but most likely Mauritius. Early- to mid- 19th century].. Manuscript map, 19 1/4 x 25 inches. On wove paper. Outline coloring. Old fold lines. Some light foxing and offsetting. Very minor loss at folds and from ink burn along the neatline. Very good. Manuscript plan of the harbor of Port Louis, with remarks on the best means for entering the harbor. Though dated 1721 in the cartouche, the plan is a later copy, probably made in the first half of the 19th century. The edges of land and sea have been watercolored for differentiation. The Pointe au Triton and the Ile aux Tonneliers are both labeled with several depths and anchorages noted. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce.

        Institutionum Juris Civilis.

      1721 - A Standard Italian Textbook During the Eighteenth Century Gasparro, Francesco Maria [1679-1735]. Institutionum Juris Civilis. Ad Usum Seminarii Romani. Rome: Typis de Martiis, 1721-22. Four parts in two volumes bound as one. Quarto (9" x 6-1/4"). Contemporary vellum, gilt title to spine. Light soling to spine, spine ends bumped, negligible spotting to boards. Woodcut head and tail-pieces. Some toning to text, light foxing and browning in places, internally clean. * Second and final edition. Gasparro, a Jesuit canon lawyer and member of the Papal Curia, taught criminal and civil law and the University of Rome. Published with Jesuit sponsorship, and first published in 1707, Gasparro's was a standard text throughout the eighteenth century, editions appearing as late as 1787. Notable for its Jesuitical perspective, it begins with a consideration of the nature of justice, then continues with discussions of the legal status of the person, the power of the state, marriage, adoption, wards, the authority of tutors, servitude, testimony, rights of succession, sales and commercial law. Despite its popularity, all editions of this title are scarce today, especially in North America. Of all editions, OCLC locates 1 copy of the second (at UC-Berkeley Law School) and 2 copies of the first (at Harvard and Stanford Law Schools). Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        THE ORTHODOX COMMUNICANT. BY WAY OF MEDITATION ON THE ORDER FOR THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE LORD'S SUPPER, OR HOLY COMMUNION

      J. Sturt, London 1721 - 165 x 102 mm (6 1/2 x 4"). 1 p.l., ix, 82, [3] pp., including the subscriber list. Second Edition. Attractive contemporary black morocco tooled in blind in the somber style, covers with frame of scallops and floral tools, central panel with large cruciform fleuron surrounded by curving lines and small tools; raised bands, spine panels with small lozenge, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT on silver, elaborate decorative and historiated initials, each page with a fine pictorial frame, text pages with engraved biblical scenes (measuring approximately 55 x 35 mm.) at the top throughout. The thick leaves of the text apparently made up of two pieces of paper, printed on one side and glued together. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate; three flyleaves with obvious evidence of bookplate removal. Very minor wear to joints and extremities, isolated faint stains or marginal smudges, but a really excellent copy of a book often found otherwise--the text clean and fresh, and the original binding especially bright and with only trivial signs of use. The entire contents of this volume are engraved, not printed, and the New Testament scenes are well-realized for their size, with sophisticated use of light. Perhaps the best English engraver of the period, John Sturt (1658-1730) was extremely productive, executing engravings for numerous books, including the famous writing-master John Ayres' most important works on calligraphy. His skill was such that he could engrave characters legible only under magnification. The anonymous author, according to Halkett & Lang and others, was Laurence Howel, (1664?-1720), who composed this work during confinement in Newgate for writing a pamphlet denouncing George I as a usurper. This is a surprisingly uncommon book in institutions (OCLC locates only two copies of the 1714 first edition and 11 copies of our second), and copies on the market tend to be in poor condition because of frequent hard use. The so-called "somber" binding here is a very good example of an appropriately restrained design meant to match the content of the text. It was a design used on books of devotion or otherwise especially sober volumes of the 17th and 18th centuries, including in particular the "Eikon Bazilike" relating to the death of Charles I. The present specimen is especially well preserved. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
