Frontespizi con vignetta con Apollo sul carro sui segni dello zodiaco, ripetuto anche all'inizio del Simposio. Capilettera ornati e finalini incisi in legno. Al frontespizio del II tomo tracce di una vignetta evidentemente da un altro foglio ancora fresco di stampa appoggiato su questo.In mezza pelle con dorso a 5 scomparti divisi da coppie di linee che affiancano un motivo ondulato al primo tomo e linee con terminazioni vegetali al secondo. Scomparti decorati con motivi vegetali. Tassello con autore e titolo applicato al primo tomo, perso al secondo. Piatti in carta marmorizzata con diversi strappi. Esemplare su carta ossidata, in barbe, a margini bianchi molto ampi che presenta il secondo tomo con lavori di tarlo al centro delle carte per gran parte del testo e che interessano il bordo superiore solo per una trentina di pagine. Piccolissimo lavoro di tarlo al margine superiore bianco delle pagine da 405 a 440 del I tomo. Antiporta e frontespizio del I volume imbraghettati con nastro adesivo da lucido. Mal legate le carte iniziali con la prefazioni che intervalla la vita del Berni. Il secondo tomo, con legatura staccata, presenta i camminamenti di tarlo integrati con carta che tuttavia tende a staccarsi; pressoché slegato, bisognoso di braghettature all'unione dei fogli. Francesco Berni nacque a Lamporecchio presso Pistoia nel 1497, figlio di un notaio, ebbe la prima educazione in Firenze e poi andò a Roma presso il Cardinal Bibbiena di cui era parente. Costretto a partire da Roma dopo la morte del cardinale nel 1520 e per aver scritto satire contro il futuro Papa Adriano VI tornò a Firenze, dove fu al servizio del cardinale Ippolito de' Medici e morì, forse coinvolto in una congiura nel 1535.Fu il maggiore esponente della poesia burlesca dei Seicento, un genere scherzoso satirico e salace che ebbe una sua fioritura e che da lui prese anche il nome di poesia bernesca continuando anche nei secoli successivi. L'edizione, che venne curata da Paolo Rolli con annotazioni di Anton Maria Salvini, il cui nome compare anagrammato nella forma di Antinoo Nivalsi nella prefazione, inizia con la vita che egli stesso scrisse nel suo Orlando Innamorato, rifatto su quello del Boiardo ed in cui lascia anche una sua descrzione fisica. Di persona era grande magro e schietto / Lunghe e sottil le Gambe forte aveva / E'l Naso grande, e il Viso largo, e stretto / Lo spazio che le Ciglia divideva; Concavo l'Occhio aveva azurro e netto, / La Barba folta quasi'l nascondeva. Segue poi una parte sulle edizioni delle opere del Berni a partire dalla prima del 1538, quella curata dal Lasca del 1548, e che qui è ristampata. Nella prefazione si annuncia anche l'intenzione di stampare un secondo volume che comprende tutte le opere del Berni trovate in altri autori. Oltre a quelli indicati nei titoli, sono riportati sonetti del Coppetta, di Strascino da Siena, Andrea Lori, Luca Martini, Francesco Baldelli, dl Bronzino, Valerio Buongioco, Luca Valoriani, del'Anguillara, Lodovico Domenichi. Il Simposio di Lorenzo de'Medici conclude il volume. Edizione che il Gamba (160) dice di qualche pregio e che, come quella in tre volumi sempre con Londra come finto luogo di stampa, del 1723, ricopia l'edizione fiorentina del Giunta del 1548, come si legge anche in fine del primo volume. Tre copie censite in SBN presso le biblioteche Nazionali di Firenze e Torino e presso la Biblioteca Trivulziana di Milano.

'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." Babson , Catalogue of the Works of Isaac Newton, Nos 65-70 listing only later Latin and English editions (1728 onwards) of this work. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

It was first edited posthumously from his writings and notes dealing with the subject, and published in France in the mid-seventeenth century (1651). The Treatise stands as one of the first attempts to treat painting as a science governed by fundamental laws and is one of the landmark works of the Renaissance

Fint nära samtida ljust hfrbd med slösande rikt guldornerad rygg och röd titeletikett av marokäng med texten: "Method nova &c.". Röda snitt. Ryggen ngt blekt och med några smärre fläckar, pärmarna med några skador i ytskiktet. Ful större fläck nedtill på titelbladet, åtföljd av skada i innersta marginalen, i det första arbetet, vilken även återfinns på den första planschen och i gradvis minskande omfattning i innermarginalen t.o.m. s. 15. Liten fläck i texten på s. 4-5 i det andra arbetet, vilken även färgat av sig på de kringliggande sidorna, bläckfläck nedtill i hörnet på s. 3 i det tredje arbetet, litet bläckstänk i texten på s. 33 i det sista arbetet; i övrigt en del lagerfläckar i de fyra sista arbetena. Första titelbladet med författaruppgift "a Emanuel Swedenborg" tillskriven i bläck, bortklippt namnteckning till höger om titelvinjetten och till vänster om denna förmodligen första ledet i samma namnteckning, "Jon". Här återfinns även ytterligare en namnteckning, "A Lindblad". Främre pärmens insida med den överstrukna namnteckningen "Joh. Ad. Smedberg d. 11 mars 1824". Från Ericsberg.. Hyde A bibliography of the works of Emanuel Swedenborg 167 och Stroh & Ekelöf Emanuel Swedenborgs skrifter 62 för det första arbetet. Vallinkoski Turun akatemian väitöskirjat 2412 och Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 783 för det andra. Sidorna 1-29 i Swedenborgs arbete består av hans förslag till metod att bestämma longituden till havs med hjälp av månen, vilket inlämnades till den tävling som med understöd av det brittiska parlamentet anordnats i den för tiden brännande frågan. Swedenborgs metod förkastades dock av den samtida expertisen. Förslaget publicerades ursprungligen i hans egen tidskrift "Daedalus hyperboreus" 1717-18 och trycktes för första gången separat på svenska 1718. Trots kritiken tröttnade uppenbarligen aldrig Swedenborg på att föra fram sin idé om longitudbestämning; den sista upplagan av "Methodus nova" utkom så sent som 1766. Sidorna 31-55 utgörs enligt titelsida på s. 31 av ytterligare ett Swedenborgarbete: "Artificia nova mechanica receptacula navalia et aggeres aquaticos construendi". Det utkom på svenska under titeln "Underrettelse om docken, slysswercken, och saltwercket" 1719. Mennanders och Wasströms arbete är dedicerat till Carl Gustaf Tessin och är den första avhandlingen i Åbo författad på svenska. Salbergs tal handlar bl.a. om det salt som han funnit efter vattenanalyser i Umeås närhet och över vilken upptäckt han publicerade en uppsats i "Vetenskapsakademiens handlingar" 1740. Följande år utgav Wallerius en avhandling där Salbergs rön kritiserades och Salberg utnyttjade tillfället när han höll presidietal i Vetenskapsakademien till att försvara sig. Wallerius svarade i en "Försvars skrift" 1746. Av Ihres arbete utkom en andra upplaga 1751. I detta arbete, som i så många andra av Ihre, avhandlas etymologier och låneord i svenskan, exempelvis det turkiska "schabrack" och de arabiska "almanach, carmesin, ammiral"
