        HISTOIRE DE L'AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE.

      Paris: Jean-Luc Nion and François Didot, 1722 [vols. 1-3]; 1721 [vol. 4]. - Four volumes. Titles in red and black. [12],10,15- 370,[4]; [2],356,[8]; [12],310,[6]; [2],271,[5]pp., with errors in pagination as issued. Frontispiece additional engraved title by I.B. Scotin, twenty-eight engraved plates and maps (twelve folding), including a double- sided plate of music. 12mo. Contemporary mottled calf, spines gilt, all edges stained red. Corners, spine extremities and edges slightly worn. Unobtrusive ownership inscription on titlepages, bookplate on front pastedowns. Very good. Rare first edition of an important illustrated contemporary history of the Indian nations in Canada and their relations with the French, including among the earliest printed views in Canada. Claude-Charles Le Roy de la Potherie, also called Bacqueville de la Potherie, arrived in New France in 1698 as comptroller of the Marine and of the fortifications in Canada. His work, published some twenty years before Charlevoix's great history, provides an eyewitness account and historical record of the region. "Bacqueville's account is in the form of letters, one of them describing the Cartier expedition and summarizing the next century and a half, but the history is mostly of the administrations of Frontenac, De la Barre, and Denonville, and as such is a contemporary account of that great period. The work contains much on the relations of New France with the English colonies and with the Indians" - Streeter. The first volume includes a detailed account of the capture of Fort Nelson. "His letters on the governments of Quebec, Trois-Rivieres, and Montreal offer a fairly complete picture of Canada. The descriptions of places and of the settlers' way of life, the notes on individuals, the statistics on population and sources of revenue show that nothing escaped La Potherie's attention and that he wanted his readers to be well informed" - CNB. The second volume is devoted to descriptions of the principal Indian nations and their relations with the French. The author relied on information from Louis Jolliet, the Jesuit missionaries, and Nicolas Perrot, and includes information provided to him verbally and not found in other accounts. The remaining two volumes are devoted the Iroquois wars and of the peace discussions which led to the general treaty of 1701, including extracts from the speeches to the chiefs of the various nations. Among the illustrations are a prospect of Quebec, a view of the taking of Fort Nelson, images of fur traders and Indians, and three folding engraved maps of Hudson Bay, Montreal, and La Nouvelle France. Although described by Sabin as "the earliest views taken in Canada" they are preceded by those of Champlain and Lahontan. Nevertheless, the engravings provide the best, and arguably most accurate, iconography of the customs and costume of early Native American culture in Canada. As noted by TPL and OCLC, although the first volume contains a gap in pagination between pages 10 and 15, the text is continuous and was issued with at least one cancelled leaf between; the gap in pagination, without the cancelled printer's error, is found in most extant examples.

(que Dios guarde) el Coronel de Infanteria D. Joseph Rivera Bernardez, Conde de Santiago de la Laguna", México, por Joseph Bernardo de Hogal, impresor, s. a., pero c. 1727. 4º., 128 págs. Encuadernación moderna en media piel y papel de aguas; algunas restauraciones del papel pero buen ejemplar. Carente del grabado calcográfico de la estatua. Rarísimo impreso de uno de los pocos testimonios de los certámenes literarios novohispanos. En España tan sólo se conserva un ejemplar en la Biblioteca de la Real Academia de la Historia (CCPB000355382-5). Asimismo se han localizado sendos ejemplares en Indiana University y en la Biblioteca del Tecnológico de Monterrey. La obra y el obelisco zacaterano fue patrocinado por José Rivera Bernández, para perpetuar un obelisco que había sido pintado en el palacio de su tío en 1724, en ocasión de la celebración local de la coronación del joven monarca Luis I, y que será colocado finalmente en 1734, para mayor ornato de la plaza pública frente a su palacio. José Rivera Bernández, conde de Santiago de la Laguna, coronel de infantería, clérigo presbítero y alcalde ordinario de primer voto de Zaratecas y teniente general de corregidor interino, será conocido especialmente por la Descripción breve de la muy noble y leal ciudad de Zaratecas, México, José Bernardo de Hogal, 1732. Asimismo fabricará a sus expensas la capilla de nuestra Señora del Patrocinio en el Cerro de Bufa y las dependencias contiguas a la ermita. Este pequeño opúsculo juega un papel importante en el marco del reformismo borbónico. El certamen literario se llevó a cabo en Zacatecas en 1722 y se publicó en 1727 con la écfrasis de un obelisco de cantera dedicado a Luis I que se erigió en 1724 junto a la catedral de Zacatecas. La Estatua de la Paz al parecer se erigió en Madrid en lo que es hoy la puerta del Sol, era un obelisco que fue destruido en la batalla del 3 de mayo. La Dra. María del Carmen Fernández Galán Montemayor, de la Universidad Autónoma de Zaratecas, realizó una edición moderna del texto con un notable estudio en el que se pone en valor la importancia de este rarísimo impreso.

        The history of the Royal Society of London, for the improvement of natural knowledge. Third edition.

      London:: Printed for Samuel Chapman, 1722., 1722. 4to. [xvi], 438, [2] pp. Title printed in red & black. Frontispiece engraved coat-of-arms of the Royal Society, 2 engraved folding plates, ad ["Benjamin Workman, Next Tom's Coffee-House ... to Mr. Hauksbee)"]. Original full paneled speckled calf; neatly rebacked to match, preserving original leather spine gilt-stamped label. Bookplate of ALLAN A. C. SWINTON, Fellow of the Royal Society. ALAN ARCHIBALD CAMPBELL-SWINTON'S COPY WITH HIS BOOKPLATE. Third edition (first issued in 1667, with later editions in 1702, 1722, 1734). This historically important work was first issued to record the first history of the Royal Society and to repute the attacks levied against the Society by Henry Stubbs [or Stubbe], who contended that Spat's work was "destructive to the established Religion and Church of England." Abraham Cowley, on the other hand, praised the author and his work in an ode to the Royal Society which prefixes the main work. Further, Dr. Samuel Johnson declared it "one of the few books which selection of sentiment and elegance of diction have been able to preserve, though written upon a subject flux and transitory." - DNB. "... first published in 1667. Its 438 pages constitute a large and puzzling work on an institution barely seven years old when the book appeared. Since its concerns and their implications touched all major aspects of contemporary affairs, not least religion, the infant Royal Society quickly became involved in controversy and detraction, against which even the good fortune of royal patronage proved insufficient...It was the first design of the History to explain the nature, organization, work, and aims of the Royal Society to the public thus showing that the promotion of its affairs was a national, even a patriotic, enterprise that promised both a healing of the wounds left by the recent turbulent events and great material benefits. The History was a piece of public relations, even of propaganda. The materials that went into it was carefully supervised and selected, and its omissions and suppressions are as significant as its contents." - DSB. Hans Aarsleff gives a superb assessment of the work and its contents as well as its position in history and the controversy relating to the publication since its inception. It includes extensive accounts of some valuable experience which had not been previously printed. Among these are Robert Hooke's meteorological account, "A Method for making a History of the Weather" [with an engraved plate], and Rooke's "Directions for the Observations of the Eclipses of the Moon," followed by his "Discourse Concerning the Observations of the Eclipses of the Satellites of Jupiter," Goddard, "A Proposal for making wine," Hooke, "An Account of a Dog dissected," Lord Brouncker, "Experiments of the Recoiling of Guns," and Henshaw, "The History of the Making of Salt-Peter," Sir William Petty, "An Apparatus to the History of the Common Practices of Dying," and other papers. "In 1663 Sprat was elected a fellow of the Royal Society. His History of the Royal Society of London came out in 1667, and was often republished down to 1764. A French translation appeared at Geneva in 1669, and at Paris in 1670. Only the second part specifically relates to the society, the first and third deal respectively with ancient philosophy and experimental knowledge ... Cowley, in his ode to the Royal Society, praised Sprat's work, and Dr. Johnson declared it 'one of the few books which selection of sentiment and elegance of diction have been able to preserve, though written upon a subject flux and transitory.' Written in excellent English, it impresses even modern readers with its 'bold and liberal spirit' of observation" (Thomas Seccombe in DNB). This copy is unusual to one point: the added leaf in the back of the book is an ad: "Benjamin Workman, Next Tom's Coffee-House ... to Mr. Hauksbee)". Workman, according to the advertisement, "furnishes gentlemen with all sorts of instruments and machines, used in several parts both of mathematics and natural philosophy, including navigation, astronomy, geography, surveying, gauging, dialing, mechanicks, opticks, hydrostatics... globes, slide-rules, magic lanterns, camera obscuras, air-pumps, condensers, fountains, etc. Bishop Thomas Sprat, whose lectures were praised by John Evelyn, "became a member of the active and soon influential circle that launched him on his surprising and varied career as the historian and defender of the Royal Society and as a man of the church." - DSB. Provenance: Alan Archibald Campbell-Swinton, (1853-1930), F.R.S., Scottish consulting electrical engineer, responsible for the theoretical basis for the electronic television, even experimented with the cathode ray tubes for electronic transmission. He wrote a paper, The Elementary Principles of Electric Lighting, London, 1886. In 1897 he took a patent with Charles A. Parsons, on "Improvements in reversing steam engines." Following that, he wrote a paper, "On the Source of the Roentgen Rays in Focus Tubes," which was read before the Royal Society, June 16, 1898, being one of the first scientists to recognize the application of radiography to medicine. The bookplate was designed and drawn by Graham Johnston, Edinburgh, with his initials, and executed in 1903. See: Burns, R. W. (1998). Television: An International History of the Formative Years.

        Oppian's Halieuticks of the Nature of Fishes and Fishing of the Ancients in V. Books. Translated from the Greek, with an Account of Oppian's Life and Writings, and a Catalogue of his Fishes

      Oxford: Printed at the Theater, . First edition in English. 1722 - Pp. (8), 232, (7, list of subscribers); engraved title vignette. Early brown half-calf leather, spine with five raised bands, title is lettered in gilt on a red morocco label in one compartment, gilt armorial vignette in another compartment, over gray marbled boards, 8vo. This work was written by the Greek scholar Oppianus (Oppian) who lived in the second century A.D. Casey Wood (p. 500) notes that the first time it appeared in published form was in 1478 in the Italian city-state of Florence. A second edition was published in 1508. The volume offered here is the first edition in English that was translated directly from the original Greek. Casey Wood (pg. 500) observes: "The labor of translating this Greco-Roman author was divided between Mr. Diaper (Pt. 1, Books I and II) and John Jones (Pt. 2, Books III to V). The latter contributor also wrote an account of Oppian's life and writings and compiled a catalogue of his Fishes. Dean's Bibliography of Fishes (volume III, p. 295) says that 'of all the ancient writers on fish and fishing, Oppian is easily the most important.' The contests between rival factions in the sea are amusingly drawn in the lines relating to the Lobster, the Lamprey, and the Preke (octopus). The remarkable color-changes of the last named were well known to the ancients (Book II)". The catalogue of fishes at the end of the work is of taxonomic importance since it lists all fishes known to Oppian in the 2nd century A.D. These fishes are listed with both their Greek and Latin names. The front endpaper bears the signature of Dan Lyfons of All Souls College at Oxford, dated 1752. Daniel Lyfons, M. D. became a Physician to the General Hospital at Bath. The front endpaper also has the armorial bookplate of Ferdinand Grant Loeb (1865 - 1913). Light foxing to the front endpapers and to the half-title; a tight, bright and clean copy in near fine condition in a very attractive early binding.

To which is now added, A Treatise of Military Orders, and The Art of Gunnery, or throwing of Bombs, Balls, &c. to hit any Object assign'd. By W. Allingham, Master of the Mathematical-School in Channel-Row, Westminster. FOURTH EDITION 1722, 'Carefully Revised & Corrected by the Original'. 8vo, approximately 200 x 120 mm, 8 x 4½ inches, engraved frontispiece or extra title page, 31 engraved folding plates, pages: (16), 213, (3) - adverts, bound in full contemporary calf, double ruled gilt border to covers, raised bands and gilt decoration to spine, gilt lettered morocco title label. Binding rubbed, label chipped, head of spine slightly chipped, upper hinge cracked, but still holding on the cords, sturdy old paper repair to front inner hinge, lower hinge starting to crack, covers slightly scuffed, corners slightly worn, ink name on front pastedown and at top of title page, small ink stain on 1 page, no loss, 6 neat ink notes, 2 plates have small pale stain to lower margin, 1 plate slightly ragged at fore-edge, not affecting image, a couple of plates misfolded and protruding slightly beyond text block, final plate has 2 small edge tears and a small split on 1 fold, all neatly repaired. Text block tight and firm, a good copy. Sebastien Le Prestre, Seigneur de Vauban and later Marquis de Vauban (1633-1707), commonly referred to as Vauban, was a Marshal of France and the foremost military engineer of his age. He was famous for his skill in both designing fortifications and in breaking through them. He also advised Louis XIV on how to consolidate France's borders, to make them more defensible. He made the radical suggestion of giving up some land that was indefensible to allow for a stronger, less porous border with France's neighbours. He was involved in the Siege of Maastricht (1673), the Siege of Valenciennes (1677) and the fortification of the cities of Strasbourg (1681) and Landau (1688). Often attributed to the pen of Vauban, this work is actually a translation of the Chevalier de Cambray's "Maniere de fortifier de Mr. de Vauban" and was first published in English in 1691. The translator's Dedicatory Epistle is signed A. S. (Abel Swall). Recognised as an important work in its field the English edition was reprinted twice more in the 18th century after our fourth edition in 1748 and 1762. However it is very scarce in any edition. The book is in 3 sections: pages 1-61 A New Treatise of Geometry; pages 61-186 A Treatise of Fortification; pages 187-213 Military orders and the Art of Gunnery. Spaulding and Karpinski, Early Military Books in the Michigan Libraries, page 23, No. 201. English translation not in Sotheby's Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part 10.

      [Cambridge] Cantabrigiae, 1722. FIRST EDITION. - Quarto. Modern half calf, marbled boards, rubbed, faint library stamps to title verso, a very good clean copy. Pagination pp. [20], 249, [1]; [2], 125, [1], collated and complete with the half-title, and the folded engraved table. Woodcut diagrams throughout. [Babson supp., p29; Norman, 519; Wallis 246; ESTC, T100930]. The English mathematician Cotes, who worked closely with Newton in the preparation of the second edition of the Principia. Cotes died from a fever at the age of 33, prompting Newton to make the famous remark that "if he had lived, we might have known something". Having published only one scientific paper in his lifetime, 'Logometria' (in which he successfully constructs the logarithmic spiral) this posthumous publication, 'Harmonia mesurarum', is the earliest record of Cotes' achievements. It contains "the first version of the Newton-Cotes formulas, introduces what is known today as Euler's formula, gives the first complete treatise on the integral calculus, the first to contain the well-known theorem of trigonometry known as "Cotes' theorem" and, according to Professor Morgan, is "the earliest work in which decided progress was made in the application of logarithms and of the properties of the circle of the calculus of fluents."

        Abhandlung von der Gicht und allen langwierigen Krankheiten ... nebst einem Vorschlag ihrer Heilung. + Falconer, W.: Anmerkungen über Herrn Cadogan Schrift der Gicht und den übrigen Krankheiten.

      Frankfurt u. Leipzig, Christian Gottlieb Hertel, 1722, Kl.8, (14), 146 pp. Berlin, Haube und Spener, 1773, 8, (8), 120 pp., Pappband der Zeit unbeschnittenes Exemplar. Not common first German Edition, bound with the first German edition of William Falconer's (1724-1844) "Observations on Dr. Cadogan's Dissertation on the gout and all chronic diseases."The clyster and other "rather fierce methods of treatment received a temporary setback when Dr. William Cadogan (1711-1799) published his best-selling book, A Dissertation on the Gout and on All Chronic Diseases (1771), which he dedicated "to all invalids." In it, he refuted specific treatment and, with great originality as was then thought, advocated a permanently temperate way of life. He wrote: "How ill can vomiting, bleeding and purging supply the place of temperance cordials and opium of peace of mind? ... It is the constant course of life which we lead, what we do, or neglect to do habitually that, if right, establishes our health if wrong, makes us invalids for life." Nevertheless he later relented somewhat and said that: "I think the causes may be very fairly reduced to these three: Indolence, Intemperance and Vexation. . . . It is by their own fault that they are ill. Nonetheless medical treatment can do good." Dr. Samuel Johnson was asked his opinion of this work by Boswell, and thought that: " 'This a good book in general, Sir, but a foolish one as to particulars." No doubt this was because for his own gout Johnson preferred and practised drastic treatment which included enormous doses of dr. James powder of antimony, such as were supposed to have killed his friend, Olvier Goldsmith." Dr. William Cadogan, F.R.S. (1711-1797), qualified originally at Leyden, but later became physician to the Foundling Hospital in London. William Munk described him as being "of pleasing manners and strong good sense, who by his writing did draw much attention to himself, and paved the way to a lucrative business." His Dissertation on the Gout (1771) attracted great attention and went through eleven editions (in two years) whilst his sturdy common sense and advocacy of moderation in all things did much to dispel the mystique which had long surrounded this disease. The great actor, David Garrick, who was a sufferer, wrote of this: "Dr. C. has written a book lately upon ye gout. It is much admired and certainly has its merit-I was frightened with it for a week." Cadogan maintained that the causes of gout were three in number: "Indolence, Intemperance and Vexation. ... So it is by the patient's own fault that he is ill," and although he realized that this was sometimes recognized by enlightened physicians, he declared: "Nonetheless, they are afraid to say so, and this talk seems to have been left to me, and I will perform it most sincerely." He concluded: "Let me say that an active and frugal life is a safe preventative, and may be a cure." Cadogan built himself a pleasant country house near London which is now the Hurlingham Club, home of English polo, to which he retired and died at the age of 86." W.S.C. Copeman, A Short history of the Gout, pp.4,7,16,84-89 "For the treatment of chronic diseases Cadogan advocated Activity, Temperance and Peace of Mind. The prescription of the modem geriatrician!"

Zum andermal vermehr heraus gegeben."DER CHIRURG DES GROSSEN KURFÜRSTEN Eines der seltensten frühen deutschen Chirurgiewerke! Aus Lüben in Schlesien, war Matthäus Gottfried Purmannn (1648-1711) einer der berühmtesten Wundärzte seiner Zeit. Als Militärarzt war er 9 Jahre in brandenburgischen Diensten. Dabei sammelte er in den vielen Feldzügen wertvolle chirurgische Erfahrungen. Besonders im pommerschen Krieg gegen die Schweden, namentlich 1677 vor Stettin in Bezug auf die schweren Verletzungen durch die gläsernen Granaten des Gegners. Der Friede von St.Germain beendete die Kriegshändel des Großen Kurfürsten. Purmann nahm seinen Abschied und wurde Stadtarzt in Halberstadt. Da er später in der kleinen, von der Pest dezimierten Stadt kein ausreichendes Auskommen fand, kaufte er 1684 eine Offizin in Breslau, wo er dann bis zu seinem Tode als hochgeachteter Stadtarzt wirkte. Eigentlich ohne wissenschaftliche Bildung, ein geschickter und mutiger Handwerkschirurg, erhielt er seine beste Ausbildung im Krieg, der Mutter der Chirurgie. Die deutsche Chirurgie verdankt ihm viel. So die erste Transfusion (1668 mit Lammblut dazu die schöne Tafel in unserer Ausgabe). Er erprobte die Infusion an sich selbst und hatte bis 1684 schon 40 Trepanationen ausgeführt, wobei er die Knochenspäne mit einem Röhrchen fortblies. Während die Kunst der Plastischen Chirurgie bei seinen Zeitgenossen weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten war, gibt Purmann ausführliche Hinweise zur Transplantation und zur Wiederherstellungschirurgie (Zeis, Gesch. d. Plast. Chir., SS.24-25, no.150). Sehnenverletzungen der Hand band er mit in Alkohol konservierten Darmsaiten zusammen. Ein Aneurysma hat er totalexstirpiert und bei der Behandlung der Bauchbrüche verwendete er die innere Naht des Bruchsackes ohne Kastration, er praktiziert den Kaiserschnitt an der Lebenden, die Tracheotomie, ferner berichtet er über Anheilung einer fast ganz abgehauenen Ohrmuschel, deren Wundflächen zuerst "geritzet", und dann mit einem Heftpulver bestreut und mit Heftpflaster befestigt wurden, etc. Ein Pionierwerk deutscher Chirurgie!

        Nouveau traité des maladies des yeux, les remèdes qui y conviennent, & les opérations de chirurgie que leurs guérisons exigent

      Paris, Pierre-Augustin Le Mercier, 1722, in-12, [30]-373-[33], 1 ff. bl, maroquin grenat, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, roulette sur les coupes et les chasses, tranches dorées sur mabrure, Première édition de cet ouvrage qui connut plusieurs publications. Exemplaire bien revêtu de la signature de l'auteur en bas de l'Épître dédicatoire : "Comme cet ouvrage pourroit être contrefait, & qu'en l'imprimant on pourroit changer les doses des remèdes prescrites (...) ; je suis obligé d'avertir que les exemplaires qui ne seront pas signés de ma main, n'auront point été imprimés par mon ordre..." (Avis, â10 r.). Saint-Yves (1667-1733), chirurgien-oculiste de Saint-Côme, tend ici à se démarquer de son prédécesseur Antoine Maître-Jan, en donnant à son ouvrage le titre de "Nouveau traité". Il est le premier qui ait parlé des prolongements de la cataracte. Il aborde aussi deux maladies rares de la rétine: son détachement de quelques points de la choroïde et son atrophie. Deux coins usés, mais néanmoins bel exemplaire en maroquin de l'époque. Blake p. 398. Waller n° 8406-07. Wellcome V, p. 9. Norman n° 1880.
