        Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica.

      Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societas,, 1723. Editio ultima cui accedit analysis per quantitatum series, fluxiones ac differentias cum enumeratione linearum tertii ordinis. Quarto (255 x 192 mm). Contemporary vellum over boards, manuscript titling to spine, speckled edges. Title page printed in red & black, engraved vignette to title page, 3 engraved folding plates, numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. Spine evenly toned, a few old stains and some discolouration, old stain at the head of a number of leaves. A very good copy in a plain contemporary binding. First edition to combine the Principia with the Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Fluxiones ac Differentias (1711), Newton's first independent treatise on mathematics, containing his important developments of calculus - here with a separate title page, pagination, and index; second Amsterdam edition of the Principia, with the plates and diagrams re-engraved. The Principia, first published in 1687, is the "greatest work in the history of science" (Printing and the Mind of Man) in which Newton (1642-1727) laid out in mathematical terms the principles of time, force and motion that explained a wide range of previously unrelated phenomena and made Newton an international leader in scientific research. His theories provided the basis for the development of modern physical science. "Copernicus, Gallileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they describe the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlaying universal laws. The Principia provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the gravitation law could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory... The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species" (ibid). An appealing copy with a contemporary ducal provenance: armorial bookplate of Giambattista de Mari, prince of Acquaviva; the de Mari were a prominent Genoese family.

        Summa Tripartiti, 125 ff.

      1723. Eighteenth-Century Manuscript on the Constitutional Law of Hungary [Manuscript]. [Kingdom of Hungary]. [Summa Tripartiti]. [N.p, c. 1723]. [125] ff. Octavo (8" x 6-1/4"). Contemporary three-quarter vellum over patterned paper-covered boards. Moderate rubbing with waer to extremities, scuffing to boards, corners bumped, some chipping to spine ends. Light toning, text in Latin, written in a fine secretarial hand, ownership inscription (of Ignatius Modrovich, "Advocati," dated 1811) to front free endpaper. * Free of cross-outs or other signs of revision, and with a detailed alphabetical table of contents, this appears to be a fair-copy of an outline of the Hungarian Tripartitum. Compiled in 1514 by Istvan Werboczy [c.1465-1541], a Hungarian jurist and statesman, this collection of early customary laws, though never incorporated formally, was regarded as the second pillar of the Hungarian constitution. It was a de facto law-book of Hungary until 1848. According to the doctrine of the Holy Crown, which appeared in the Tripartitum, the king and the legally equal noblemen formulated the "corpse of the Holy Crown," which symbolized the Hungarian state.

        Fine satirical etching of performers in a contemporary production of Handel's Flavio at the King's Theatre in London in 1723

      - 190 x 266 mm. + wide margins. Printed on heavy laid paper. The singers depicted are most commonly agreed to include the famous castrato Bernardi Senesino (?-1759), the soprano Francesco Cuzzoni (1696-1778), and the alto castrato Gaetano Berenstadt (1687-1734). With pencilled notes to lower margin incorrectly naming Farinelli as one of the singers and the opera as being Handel's Julius Caesar. Some light browning, mostly to right outer margin; a little minor foxing. Rackwitz and Steffens: George Friederic Handel no. 101. Hogwood: Handel no. 21. "For this engraving various operas by Handel have been named: "Julius Caesar", "Falvio" and "Tolomeo." The singers have been said to be Farinelli, Senesino, Cuzzonni and Berenstadt. Hogarth and Vanderbank have been named as engravers. In all probability it represents the 7th scene of the 3rd act of the opera "Flavio." Rackwitz and Steffens p. 187.A very good impression overall of a rare and historically important print depicting three of the most famous singers of the day. There are relatively few early 18th century images with any historical basis depicting prominent singers in performance.

        Fundamenta chymiae dogmaticae & experimentalis

      Wolfgang Mauritius, Nuremberg 1723 - tahl, Georg Ernst (1659-1734). Fundamenta chymiae dogmaticae & experimentalis. . . . 4to. [8], 255, [25]pp. Nuremberg: Johann Ernst Adelbulner for Wolfgang Mauritz, 1723. 198 x 161 mm. Modern half vellum, floral-patterned boards. Light toning, but a very good, crisp copy. First Edition. Stahl was the originator of the phlogiston theory, which dominated chemistry until the end of the eighteenth century. Stahl took the structure of his theory from 17th-century alchemist Johann Joachim Becher, who had stated air, water and earth to be the three elementary principles; water and earth were the basis of all material things, and Becher further subdivided the principle of earth into the three principles of substantiality, combustibility and weight/ductility/volatility. Stahl elaborated from Becher’s "second earth" a new chemical principle, phlogiston, representing the principle of combustibility that combined with other chemical substances to form compounds. Experimental evidence for the existence of phlogiston came largely from metals and minerals, particularly from the reversible relationship of metals and their calces: when a metal was heated intensely, its phlogiston was driven off and a calx appeared, but when phlogiston was reintroduced to the calx (by heating it with carbon, oil, pitch or other phlogiston-rich materials), the metal reappeared. Air did not combine with phlogiston but received it when it was liberated during combustion; air could absorb only a limited amount of phlogiston, and when that limit was reached, combustion could no longer take place. The flaws in the phlogiston theory are obvious and it did not survive the eighteenth century; however, it served as an important link between older (al)chemical concepts and the new, an attempt to modify the existing intellectual framework in order to account for new experimental observations.

        Cathecismo romano, traducido en castellano, y mexicano por ... Manuel Perez.

      Mexico: por Francisco de Rivera Calderon Small 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). [14] ff., 248 pp.. 1723 The first edition of this important translation of the standard Catholic catechism. Father Pérez was one of Mexico's leading Nahuatl (i.e., Aztec) scholars of the 18th century, the period of a major rebirth of scholarship in Nahuatl studies; he held the post of professor of Nahuatl at the Royal University in Mexico City. This work was prepared for use among the Indians of Central Mexico, as well as other areas of North America into which Nahuatl had been introduced. The catechism is => not in the accustomed question and answer format, but is composed of sermon-like discussions on the articles of faith and dogma. Additionally, Perez discusses various Biblical issues and teachings of the Fathers of the Church. Provenance: 18th- or early 19th-century ownership note at top of title-page (partially crossed out) of Bachiller Perez Jimenez y Mendoza; bookplate of Frederick Starr, noted 20th-century scholar of Mexican languages and matters indigenous. Original limp vellum; text block almost totally loose in it. Lacking endpapers; worming at inner margins, some repaired. Stains and foxing but minor and only occasional. Withal, a solid, good, and useable copy of this significant work — with pleasant provenance both early and late.

        ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE PROVINCE OF MARYLAND, FROM 1692, TO 1715.

      London: Printed by John Baskett, 1723. - xi,[8],183pp. Folio. Early 20th-century three-quarter morocco and cloth, gilt. Title with some internal tears, neatly repaired, title backed. Very faint dampstain to outer edge of text. Very good. A rare early collection of Maryland colonial laws. Like the rare Virginia laws printed by the Royal Printer, Baskett, a few years later, this collection of Maryland laws seems to have been largely unknown to the colonists for whom it was written. Perhaps the laws were not meant for the colonists at all. The Brinley catalogue states: "[Thomas] Bacon, in his preface to his BODY OF MARYLAND LAWS, 1765, says: 'I have seen (some time before I left England in the Year 1745) an Edition printed at London, at Lord Baltimore's Expense, as I have been informed, for the Use of the Board of Trade, with the Latin Charter prefixed: But I could never meet with a Copy of it in this Province, nor can I recollect the date it bears.'" The Brinley copy realized $42 in 1880; the last copy in auction records is 1948. SABIN 45045. BRINLEY SALE 3657.

        Dell’istoria civile del Regno di Napoli libri XL.

      Niccolo Naso, Napoli 1723 - 4to. 4 volumes. Volume I. pp. [24], 534 with engraved portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI (to whom the book is dedicated) following the title. Volume II, pp. [8], 575, [1]. Volume III, pp. [8], 566. Volume IV, pp. [8], 502, [42p. index]. Titles printed in red and black. Bound in full period vellum over boards. The vellum is age-toned/soiled and displays areas of rubbing and wear. The boards show some warping due to vellum shrinkage. An 8.5 cm tear in the vellum near the fore-edge to the front cover of volume IV is professionally repaired. Spine labels contain chipping. Interior pages display periodic age-toning, browning, scattered foxing, occasional spots of staining and wear; some pages are uniformly tanned/browned. A couple of small marginal tears are neatly sealed. A 4.5 x 2 cm area in the blank outer margin of p. 177 (vol. II) is patched with early paper. Pietro Giannone (1676-1748) Italian Neapolitan lawyer, scholar and historian. His great work, "Dell’istoria civile del Regno di Napoli" describes the development of civil and legal institutions in the Kingdom of Naples from the fall of the Roman empire to the first decades of the 18th century. Giannone argued for the dominance of civil power over that of the Roman Catholic Church. Publication of the work caused a major controversy, including public demonstrations organized by the Neapolitan clergy. The book was ultimately condemned by the Church and Giannone fled Italy for Austria. The English antiquarian Richard Rawlinson helped introduce Giannone’s book into Britain where it achieved some influence [see Trevor-Roper, "Pietro Giannone and Great Britain" in The Hist. Journ. (Sept. 1996)]. [Gamba 2254; Brunet II, 1584; Graesse III, p. 79]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Botanicon parisiense. Operis majoris prodituri prodromus

      1723 - (12), 131, (1)pp., exemplaire Leyde, Peter Vander, 1723, in-8, (12), 131, (1)pp, exemplaire interfolié de feuillets blancs, plein veau fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné et portant une pièce de titre en maroquin noir, tranches rouges, gardes marbrées (restauration du dos et des coins), Première édition, peu courante, de la "Botanicon parisiense" de Vaillant portant de nombreuses notes manuscrites anonymes anciennes en français. "L'Opus major" du botaniste français ne fut publié que posthume, en 1723 (Vaillant décéda l'année précédente), par les soins d'Herman Boerhaave qui en rédigea la préface. Vaillant dénombre et décrit, en les classant par ordre alphabétique, les plantes qui se trouvent aux environs de Paris. Sébastien Vaillant, chirurgien de formation, étudia la botanique sous la direction de Tournefort, au jardin des Plantes. Il en devint sous-administrateur en 1708, puis fut chargé, par Louix XIV, de créer un jardin des drogues. Il fut nommé à l'académie des sciences en 1716. L'originalité de sa démarche scientifique réside dans son effort résolument empirique de ne décrire que les plantes connues de lui-même et dans sa compréhension innovante du mécanisme et de l'importance de la pollinisation, donc de la reproduction sexuée des plantes à fleurs. Ainsi, il s'opposa aux théories de Tournefort, proposa une nouvelle classficiation et peut être considéré comme un des inspirateurs de Linné et de Jussieu. De nombreuses notes manuscrites courent dans les marges du présent exemplaire et sur les feuillets intercalés. On peut distinguer deux mains différentes. La plus ancienne, d'une calligraphie plus lâche et plus grosse, traduit certaines des appellations latines, propose de nouvelles localisations pour quelques plantes décrites ou complète le texte (probablement d'après la seconde édition du "Botanicon", paru en 1727). Voir, par exemple, les notes en regard de la page 2. La seconde main, probablement du XIXe siècle, est d'une écriture plus serrée et plus régulière. L'annotateur localise et complète les informations de Vaillant, mais surtout, il indique, en manchette, la nomenclature proposée par Linné afin de faciliter l'utilisation de ce dictionnaire pour les botanistes modernes qui ignorent la classification ancienne des végétaux. Sur le contre-plat, l'ex-libris imprimé de "G. Archambault". Bel exemplaire, richement annoté, de cette rare édition originale du chef d’œuvre du plus moderne des botanistes français du siècle de Louix XIV. Plesch, p. 445-446 ; DSB, XIII, p. 553-554. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
