'sGravesande (1688-1742) a Dutch mathematician and philosopher, is described by the DSB as "the earliest influential exponent of Newtonian philosophy in continental Europe". He spent a year in London in 1715 having been sent there as part of a Dutch mission to congratulate George I on his accession and there he made contact with the English Newtonians Desaguliers and John Keill and met Newton himself. In 1717 he was appointed professor of mathematics and philosophy at Leiden and began to prepare his Introductio ad philosophiam Newtoniam which was first published in 1720-21. This important and popular work reached 24 editions by 1760. See Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, page 235: "It was a work which emphasised the experimental rather than the mathematical side of Newton's thought and as such must have introduced many throughout Europe to the basic principles of the new science."

[.] Quanto ao mérito literário do livro, posto que o seu autor no prólogo declara, que só se fizera cargo ao escreve-lo da verdade e fidelidade, inculcando ter deixado de parte a correcção do estilo, contudo este é quase sempre puro, animado, agradável, e às vezes elegante. Ao menos é essa a opinião de alguns nossos distintos filólogos, cujas autoridades não produzo para não alongar este artigo. O Itinerário é já tido em conta de livro raro, apesar das suas multiplicadas edições e vi não há muito tempo vender por 1:600 réis um exemplar da de 1732.? In Portugal. Dicionário Histórico: ?Frei Pantaleão de Aveiro vestiu o hábito franciscano, e desejando ver a Terra Santa, saiu de Portugal em peregrinação em 1563, e depois de haver chegado até Jerusalém, permaneceu nesta cidade durante três anos, findos os quais regressou à pátria. Escreveu o Itinerário da Terra Santa, em que descreve minuciosamente a sua peregrinação. No prólogo conta como, estando em Roma, fora convidado pelo padre Bonifácio de Aragusa, guardião de Monte Sião, para ir com ele às províncias de Itália em demanda de religiosos que substituíssem os que tinham ido fazer o seu triénio à Terra Santa. Os dois religiosos saíram de Roma, e tendo conseguido reunir uns sessenta frades para a missão, dirigiram-se a Trento, onde então se celebrava o concilio. O Itinerário começa em Veneza, descreve todos os pontos em que fez estação contando minuciosamente o que viu em Jerusalém e em todos os lugares onde se desenvolveram os principais dramas da paixão de Cristo. À volta da Palestina, frei Pantaleão e seus companheiros tomaram o porto de Nápoles, fazendo depois o resto da viagem por terra, indo mais tarde a Veneza buscar as bagagens e as relíquias que traziam.?

[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.

        THE WORKS OF GEOFFREY CHAUCER. Compared with the former editions and many valuable MSS, out of which, Three Tales are added which were never before printed; By John Urry, student of Christ-Church, Oxon. deceased: together with a Glossary by a student of the same College. To the whole is prefixed the Author's life, newly written, and a preface, giving an account of this edition.

      Bernard Lintot. London. 1721 - FIRST URRY EDITION. Folio. Large paper copy. (17.9 x 11.7 inches - 45.4cms x 29.8cms). lii, 626, 81, (i -Errata), pp. Frontis portrait of Urry, engraved by N. Pigne. Vignette of Chaucer's tomb on title page. Full page engraved portrait of Chaucer following title page, engraved by George Vertue. The Canterbury Tales are illustrated with 26 engraved images of the Pilgrims. Decorative initial letters and head & tail pieces throughout. Previous owners armorial bookplate (William Markham, Becca Lodge, Yorkshire, the son of the Archbishop of York and Private Secretary to Warren Hastings) on the front pastedown endpaper. A handful of leaves with browning to the margins but overall this is a very good, tall, wide margined copy. Contemporary brown calf boards with decorative blind tooled frames. Gilt and blind tooled border to the edges. Professionally rebacked with the original spine laid down. Compartments ruled and decorated with floral centre pieces, all in gilt. Burgundy title label, gilt. Corners and edges bumped and rubbed but still an attractive copy of this impressive volume. Printed by William Bowyer; his records show three sizes printed: 1000 copies demy; 240 royal; 10 writing royal. Although the pages in this copy measure to the official size of a Demy leaf, the edges have been trimmed before binding so the original pages would have been larger, suggesting this to be one of the 240 Royal paper copies. The book is certainly much larger than any copy I have seen before and matches the size of the copies, both listed as being Royal copies, in the Victoria & Albert Museum Library and Cardiff University Library. According to the DNB, this is the first edition of Chaucer to offer descriptions of the manuscripts of Chaucer's works and the first to print texts of "Gamelyn" and "The tale of Beryn", works ascribed to, but not by, Chaucer. Published posthumosly (Urry died in 1715), the final revision fell to Timothy Thomas, who also wrote the preface and glossary. The life of Chaucer was originally written by John Dart, but was revised and altered by William Thomas before publication. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"[A]s valuable for the 17th century in the Low Countries as Van Mander is for the 16th." (Chamberlin) "An important source for 17th-century painting in the Low Countries. Anecdotal, but more reliable than most art historians want to concede." (Arntzen/Rainwater)

An exact History of all the Writers and Bishops who have had their Education in the most Antient and Famous University of Oxford, from the Fifteenth Year of King Henry the Seventh, A.D. 1500, to the Author’s Death in November 1695 [...] The Second Edition, very much Corrected and Enlarged; with the Addition of above 500 new Lives from the Author’s Original Manuscript

      Printed for R. Knaplock, D. Midwinter, and J. Tonson , 1721. 2 vols, folio. pp. [xiv] cols. 742 p. [i] cols. 286 pp. [i] [viii]; pp. [vi] cols. 1186 p. [i] cols. 238 pp. [i] [viii]. Titles printed in red and black, old ownership signature partially obliterated on first. Trivial marginal waterstaining at intervals. Worn contemporary calf, rebacked and recornered. Wood himself, who sometimes chose to style himself “à Wood”, is described as “a very strong lusty man, of uncouth manners and appearance ... not avaricious and a despiser of honours ... [he] led a life of self-denial, entirely devoted to antiquarian research. Bell-ringing and music were his chief relaxations.” (Ency. Brit. 11th edition.) Britannica also adds that “his taste and judgment are frequently warped by prejudice”. His work, the first of its kind to deal with the University and the Colleges, courted controversy. This second, revised English edition contains posthumous defences by Wood’s nephew, after Wood had been condemned at the vice-chancellor’s court for libels against the earl of Clarendon in the first edition of 1693, and attacked by Bishop Burnet for displays of popish prejudice.

As usual some brownspotting. A nice set. pp. 500-514 (Supplement-vol.) + pp. 94-95. [Entire volumes: (2), 537, (39) pp. + three plates (Suppl.-vol.) + (4), 547, (42) pp. + five plates].. The highly important first Latin translation of Leibnitz' seminal "The Monadology" - his main philosophical work and the work that stands as the epitomization of anti-materialism - which was not published in the original French until 1814, and which only appeared in a German translation (exceedingly scarce) in 1720 and in a Latin translation, by Christian Wolff, in 1721, as it is here. Up until then, Leibnitz' key philosophical text had only circulated in manuscript form (written in 1714). - Here sold together with Wolff's anonymously written review of (the German version of the) "Monadology", which had great impact upon the reception of the seminal philosophical text that is the "Monadology"."Until the XXth century, criticism about Leibniz's "Principles of Nature and Grace" and "Monadology" has been characterised by a number of mistakes and misunderstandings, which have roots in the circumstances surrounding the genesis of these manuscripts. As a consequence, erroneous information about these texts was included in an anonymous review, published in 1721 in the "Acta eruditorum" of Leipzig. Research on primary sources proves that the author of this review (who was in fact the author of the latin translation of the Monadology, published immediately afterwards) was Christian Wolff, who was in possession of a copy of Leibniz's manuscript as early as 1717. Wolff's initiative of translating the Monadology can be seen as part of a cultural strategy aiming to prevent any idealistic interpretation of Leibniz's monadological thought. From this point of view, to consider the theory of pre-established harmony as based on a system of strictly dualistic metaphysics was an essential element of Wolff's philosophical strategy."(Antonio Lamarra: Contexte génétique et première reception de la "Monadologie". Leibniz, Wolff et la doctrine de l'harmonie préétablie"). During his last stay in Vienna from 1712 to September 1714, Leibniz wrote two short texts, which were meant as concise expositions of his philosophy, namely the "Principes de la Nature et de la Grace fondés en raison" (written as a letter to Prince Eugene of Savoy) and the work we now know as the "Monadology" (which he had been asked to write by Nicolas Redmond, Duke of Orleons) - the latter being the work that established Leibnitz' fame as a philosopher and which has gone down in history as, not only as one of the most important philosophical texts of the 18th century, but also, arguably the most important work of immaterialism. After his death "Principes de la Nature et de la Grace fondés en raison" appeared in French in the Netherlands. Without having seen this publication, Christian Wolff and collaborators had assumed that it contained the French original of the "Monadology" as well, although this in fact remained unpublished until 1840. Thus it happened that Leibnitz' key philosophical text, which came to be known as "The Monadology", was printed in German and Latin ab. 120 years before it appeared in the original French. The German translation appeared in 1720 as "Lehrsätze über die Monadologie" and the following year the Latin translation appeared, in Acta Eruditorum, as "Principia philosophiae". Three manuscript versions of the text exist: the first written by Leibniz and overcharged with corrections and two further emended copies with some corrections appearing in one but not the other. "Leibniz was one of the last "universal men" of the type which the Italian Renaissance had ideally postulated: philosopher, historian, mathematician, scientist, lawyer, librarian, and diplomat. In all these fields either all his actual achievements or his seminal suggestions have become part and parcel of European thought. Although trained for the law, mathematics was his favourite subject. Independently of Newton he worked out the infinitesimal calculus, introduced a number of mathematical symbols now in general use, and constructed an early calculating machine, the ancestor of our computers. Mathematical conceptions also determine his philosophy. In it, Leibniz tried to combine physics and metaphysics and to reconcile philosophy and theology. The "essay on a Theodicy" is the only larger philosophical work published by himself; but his fame as a philosopher rests on his "Theory of Monads". The original French text of this was published for the first time in 1840; but it had circulated in manuscript in its initial form of a letter addressed to Prince Eugene of Savoy (1714) and it was printed in German (1720) and Latin (1721) translations. Leibniz proclaimed a "pre-established harmony" of the universe which he explained as composed of hierarchically ordered "monads", i.e. the ultimate substances of mind as well as matter. This concept clearly reflects the ideal of the properly organized absolutist state of the baroque period and derives partly from the "idées simples" of Descartes whom Leibniz greatly admired. A generation later, Voltaire ridiculed the "pre-established harmony" in "Candide"; but modern nuclear science has vindicated Leibniz's basic ideas, albeit from different presuppositions." (Printing and the Mind of Man, pp. 105-6). The "Monadology" is an extremely condense work that consists of 90 (in this Latin version, 93) numbered sections/paragraphs, which outline a metaphysics of a single substance. The Monadology ends the dualistic mind-body-problem of Descartes and offers a new solution to the question of the interaction between mind and matter, by explaining the pre-established harmony and the synchronous (not causal) relationship between the realm of final causes and that of efficient causes. Leibniz' groundbreaking work came to profoundly influence not only 18th century thought, but also much later philosophy and logic. For this we have to thank Christian Wolff, the translator of the "Monadology" into Latin and the first reviewer of the work. It is through Wolff and his elaboration of the development of Leibniz' speculative and metaphysical views that Leibniz becomes a recognized figure of importance, particularly in Germany from the 1720'ies onwards, where Wolff's writings were standardly studied. "Notably, Wolff's Leibnizianism made a deep impact on Kant, in whose "Critique of Pure Reason" (1781) Leibniz himself came to figure as one of the main targets of Kant's anti-metaphysical programme. In particular, Kant saw Leibniz as pretending to "a priori" knowledge of the world as it is in itself and presented his own claim that the only knowledge we can have is of the world as it appears in our experience as sharply opposed to the Leibnizian vision. [...] today shows that his thought has survived even the extreme empiricism of the Vienna Circle in the 1930s, which would have viewed its principal doctrines as unverifiable and hence utterly meaningless. Although not in evidence in the "Monadology" itself, one of Leibniz' preoccupations was with the philosophy of logic and language, and the twentieth-century's concern for those topics has discovered in what he had to say about them a treasure house of good sense and wisdom which can be detached from the less appealing of his metaphysical speculations. Then, more recent writers who have been interested in the metaphysics of possibility and necessity have found inspiration in the Leibnizian image of possible worlds, and that too has helped keep his name alive for us." (Savile, "Leibniz and the Monadology", pp. 6-7). "The long span of Leibniz' intellectual life and his early involvement with philosophy made for engagement with a wide variety of philosophical traditions and issues. Early studies at home exposed him to the thought of the Scholastics; during his university years he was something of a materialist, influenced by the atomism of Bacon and Gassendi. In his mid-20s and early 30s, becoming disenchanted with the intellectual prospects for materialist thought, he turned towards the sort of immaterialism that came to shape his mature thinking after the decade between 1675 and 1685 when he was more narrowly concerned with mathematics than philosophy. It is this anti-materialism that is epitomized in the "Monadology" itself...Although Leibniz produced a prodigious quantity of philosophical writing very little of it was published in his lifetime; indeed, very little was intended for publication. For the most part..., his philosophical thoughts were prepared for individual scholars he had met, or with whom he corresponded, and were never presented as a worked-out system... it was not until the last period of his life that he found the time and the impetus to set down the whole, which he did in two condensed papers written in French during a visit to Vienna.The more popular and less taxing of these was the "Principles of Nature and Grace Founded on Reason", which he prepared for Prince Eugène of Savoy, and the second, which he had been asked to write by the councellor of the Duke of Orleans, Nicolas Remond, but never sent off, was the "Principles of Philosophy" or, as he called it "Elucidation Concerning Monads" ... The title by which that work is known today, "Monadology", was not one that Leibniz ever gave it, but was invented by the work's first editor, Henrich Kohler, who published it in a German translation under that title in 1720." (Savile, "Leibniz and the Monadology", pp. 3-4). "Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) was one of the great thinkers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and is known as the last "universal genius". He made deep and important contributions to the fields of metaphysics, epistemology, logic, philosophy of religion, as well as mathematics, physics, geology, jurisprudence, and history. Even the eighteenth-century French atheist and materialist Denis Diderot, whose views were very often at odds with those of Leibniz, could not help being awed by his achievement, writing in his entry on Leibniz in the Encyclopedia, "Perhaps never has a man read as much, studied as much, meditated more, and written more than Leibniz... What he has composed on the world, God, nature, and the soul is of the most sublime eloquence. If his ideas had been expressed with the flair of Plato, the philosopher of Leipzig would cede nothing to the philosopher of Athens." ("Oeuvres complètes", vol. 7, p. 709) Indeed, Diderot was almost moved to despair in this piece: "When one compares the talents one has with those of a Leibniz, one is tempted to throw away one's books and go die quietly in the dark of some forgotten corner." ("Oeuvres complètes", vol. 7, p. 678) More than a century later, Gottlob Frege, who fortunately did not cast his books away in despair, expressed similar admiration, declaring that "in his writings, Leibniz threw out such a profusion of seeds of ideas that in this respect he is virtually in a class of his own." ("Boole's logical Calculus and the Concept-script" in "Posthumous Writings", p. 9)." (SEP).Ravier: 357(PMM 177b - being the Latin translation)

      Paris, Henri Charpentier, Jacques Josse & Pierre Prault, 1721. - Paris, 1721, in-12, (4), 172, (4) pp., veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, plats encadrés d'une chaînette dorée, couronne dorée de baron sur le plat supérieur, roulettes dorées sur les coupes et roulette intérieure, tranches jaspées, un mors supérieur fendu sur 2 cm, sinon très bon état. Édition parisienne très rare, imprimée à Carpentras quelques semaines ou quelques mois après la rarissime édition originale marseillaise (de format in-quarto) qui fut rapidement saisie. Cette édition est de ce fait souvent donnée par les biographes comme l'édition originale. Cet ouvrage fut réédité en 1794. Il s'agit d'une relation étendue et jugée fidèle des événements survenus pendant cette effroyable épidémie de peste, jusqu'au 10 décembre 1720. Le médecin Bertrand, auteur d'un autre ouvrage important sur la peste à Marseille paru la même année écrit : "La relation la plus étendue est celle de M. Pichaty, avocat de la communauté, intitulée 'Journal abrégé. tiré du Mémorial de la Chambre du Conseil de l'Hötel de Ville'. Une relation fondée sur une semblable piece ne peut être que très-fidelle ; c'est peut-être pour l'être trop qu'elle fut supprimée et les exemplaires enlevés dès qu¿elle parut. Cet ouvrage est pourtant assez exact, les traits y sont vifs, les tours variés, nos malheurs y sont décrits avec une éloquence fastueuse et la maladie faisant rafle de tout y est peinte au naturel.". Coste écrit que " la version des faits donné par Pichatty laisse supposer que la peste y avait été reconnue par les médecins montpelliérains et que l'Avis au public n'avait été qu'une pure opération de désinformation destinée à 'calmer et rassurer les esprits'." Il estime que "cette relation constitue l'une des trois sources essentielles pour l'historiographe de la peste de Marseille" (avec les ouvrages des médecins de Montpellier et celui de Bertrand). Les échevins censurèrent cet ouvrage, et la plupart des exemplaires furent retirés dès sa parution. cf. J. Coste, Représentations et comportements en temps d'épidémie dans la littérature imprimée de peste (1490-1725), p. 54-55, 126, 179, 586-588, 812 ; Pauly, Bibliographie des sciences médicales, 1390 ; manque à Waller.

        "A New Mapp of Rome Shewing its Antient and Present Scituation"

      London: J. Senex, circa 1721. Copper-engraved map by John Harris, with full modern colour, printed on laid paper, in excellent condition apart from the loss of the lower right corner (well outside platemark) and a re- backed centerfold. 20 5/8 x 24 ¾ inches. A stunning plan of Rome, by the celebrated English mapmaker John Senex. A contemporary of Herman Moll, John Senex was one of the most successful mapmakers during the golden age of English cartography. He issued a series of atlases with John Maxwell and C. Price, and went on to re-issue Ogilby's road atlas. He was appointed Geographer to Queen Anne, and in 1728 was elected to the Royal Society. His beautiful maps are famed for their meticulous detail and ornate cartouches, and they remain some of the best examples of eighteenth century English mapmaking. Like Senex's other town plans, this stunning aerial view of Rome includes vignettes of the city's ancient and Renaissance landmarks. Indeed, all of the city's architectural treasures (as of 1715) are clearly illustrated. Anyone interested in present day Rome will be fascinated by the extent to which the city has and has not changed. The map is oriented with the north to the right. the Vatican holding the lower left corner. The map includes an extensive alphabetical index of 252 churches, palaces, monasteries, convents and colleges. There are inset views in each corner showing the Colosseum, St. Peter's cathedral, Trajan's Column and the Pyramid of Gaius Cestius. A truly enthralling historical document.

        Institutionum Juris Civilis

      1721. 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 study of Roman law 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.
