LEIBNIZ, G.G. - LEIBNITZ [+ CHRISTIAN WOLFF]. - [THE MONADOLOGY - A NEW PHILOSOPHY]
Leipzig, 1721. 4to. Both entire volumes (Acta Eruditorum 1721 + Supplementa VII, 1721) present, in uniform contemporary full vellum bindings with handwriting to spines. A small later label to top of spines. Old handwritten ex libris-inscription to top of both title-pages as well as a small stamp. The supplement-volume with an additional stamp to title-page, and both volumes with library label (Archiv des k.k. militär.-geograf Institutes) to pasted down front free end-paper. 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 genesi … [Click Below for Full Description]

PICHATTY de Croislainte (Sieur).
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 montp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Trajecti Batavorum [Utrecht]: Apud Jacobum Poolsum, et Joannem Visch, 1721. Two quarto volumes: [34], 756 [i.e. 764]; 578, [158] p., illus., index, errata; 25 cm. Title continues: Joannis Frederici Gronovii, & selectis aliorum commentariis illustrata. Ex recensione & cum notis Jacobi Gronovii. Johannes Fredericus Gronovius prepared this massively annotated edition; it was first published posthumously in 1672, the year after his death. His son Jacobus then included readings from Florentine manuscripts which much improved the original. Graesse VII, p. 9-10, note, states that this edition is preferable to an earlier one that contained a similar selection, Amsterdam 1672, and in which the text was "quelquefois chang sur des conjectures, mais sans consulter des mss. ..." In the edition at hand, "les mss. de Florence ont t collationns plus exactement." Title page, vol. 2: ...Operum, tomus secundus, in quo libri quinque historiarum, De moribus germanorum, Vita Julii Agricolae, et auctoris incerti dialogus de oratoribus. Vol. 1 has added engraved title-page Title-pages printed in red & black with engraved vignettes. On the front flyleaf of vol. I is the signature "I. Newton, A.M.,1739". Vol. II has an armorial bookplate. (Paging 425-432 repeated in Vol. I.) A copy of this edition was in the Hollis gift to Harvard College. Bound in contemporary full leather, repaired, with new spine with gold in the style of the original, by the Hope Bindery. Stock#NS0273. A fine and handsome set.
