        The Construction and Principal Uses of Mathematical Instruments. Translated from the French of M.Bion, Chief Instrument-Maker to the French King. To which are Added, The Construction and Uses of such Instruments as are omitted by M.Bion; particularly of those invented or improved by the English. By Edmund Stone.

      - 1st.English ed., folio, vii + 1 (errata)+ 264pp. + iv (title to Supplement and ëadvertisementí leaf) + 265-325pp., 30 folding engraved copper plates, main title in red and black and slightly soiled, pp.249-264 browned (as often), a good copy in early calf, handsomely respined. London, for John Senex & William Taylor, 1723 (and Supplement) for J.Richardson, 1758. An attractive and unusual copy with the eighteenth-century engraved armorial bookplate of Jos. Townsend (1739-1816), physician and one of the original honorary members of the Geological Society; the first edition of this (1723) had 264pp.+26 engraved plates; the second edition of 1758 had 325pp.+30 plates; copies of the first edition have occasionally occurred with a full complement of pages and plates almost certainly because the publisher of the second edition (Richardson) printed off more copies of the original of 1723 text and added the important supplement while adopting continuous pagination. We can find no other copy with the separate title and advertisement to the supplement as here. In the two-page ëadvertisementí (i.e. preface) to the Supplement, Stone gives his reasons for the long delay inproducing a second edition. ìimmerged in other more delightful Branches of Mathematics, especially pure Geometry and Meckanicsî (but) ìthis second impression is here published with a Supplement or Appendix, containing the Descriptions, and some of the Uses of such Instruments as were before omitted, or have been made better, as I thought since, for the Purposes designed them.î [Attributes: First Edition]

      - (2) weiße Bl., Titelblatt, (1) weißes Bl., (248) Bl., (2) weiße Bl., mit 14 kleineren Zeichnungen im Text und 3 graphischen Darstellungen der verschiedenen Weltbilder. Lederband der Zeit auf fünf unechten Bünden, mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschild, reicher Rückenvergoldung und dreiseitigem Rotschnitt (Einband stellenweise berieben), gr. 8vo. Die vorliegende allgemeine und spezielle Naturgeschichte bildete im frühen 18. Jahrhundert üblicherweise, nach der Logik und der Ethik, den dritten Teil des traditionellen Philosophiestudiums. Die allgemeine Naturlehre beginnt mit der Definition dessen, was Natur, respektive 'phisica' ist, um daran anschließend zunächst einige Grundbegriffe der Mathematik zu erläutern (Punkt, Linie, Kreis). Darauf folgt die Erörterung so allgemeiner Fragen wie "Was ist Materie ?" (Bl. 17), aus welchen Elementen setzt sie sich zusammen ? (Bl. 27), ist sie teilbar ? (Bl. 34) etc. um schließlich zum Komplex mechanischer Bewegungsabläufe zu gelangen (Aufprall, Ablenkung etc.). Das folgende Kapitel befasst sich dann mit mechanischen Instrumenten, wie dem Aufzug (Bl. 93), dem Zahnrad (Bl. 94) oder der schiefen Ebene (Bl. 95). Der allgemeine, erste Teil schließt mit Betrachtungen über Hitze (Bl. 111), Kälte (Bl. 114) und Flüssigkeiten (Bl. 117). Der zweite Teil beginnt mit Blatt 129 v und ist mit 'De corpore inanimato' überschrieben. Zunächst werden die verschiedenen Sonnensysteme vorgestellt; das Ptolemäische (Bl. 145), das von Tycho Brahe (Bl. 146) und das Kopernikanische (Bl. 147), sowie schließlich das Descart'sche Erklärungssystem der Himmelsbewegungen (Bl. 150). Es folgen Betrachtungen zur Sonnen- und Mondfinsternis (Bl. 159), zu den Kometen (Bl. 165), zum Wind (Bl. 168), zum Nebel und zu den Wolken (Bl. 174), zum Blitz (Bl. 178), Feuer (Bl. 181), Wasser (Bl. 185), zu Quellen und Flüssen (Bl.186), zum Meer und seinen Bewegungen (Bl. 188), dann zu den Metallen (Bl. 202), Pflanzen (Bl. 207) und den Menschen (Bl. 213). Vorgestellt wird hier der Körper und seine Funktionen (Blutkreislauf Bl. 217, Sinnesorgane Bl. 231, Farben Bl. 237, Gerüche und Geschmack Bl. 242). Das Manuskript endet mit zwei Abhandlungen zur Frage, ob Tiere reine Automaten sind ("Utrum bruta sint mera automata") und welcher Art die "anima brutorum" ist. - 20 Bl. mit kl. Wurmfraßspur und etwas Buchstabenverlust, sonst sehr wohlerhalten. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A New and Exact Plan of Ye City of London and Suburbs thereof, With the addition of the New Buildings, Churches &c. to this present Year 1723 (Not extant in any other,) Laid down in such a method that in an Instant, may easily be found any Place contain'd therein.

      Printed & Sold by Tho: Bowles next to the Chapter-house St. Paul?Äôs Church Yard,, London, 1723 - A city of meat eaters 620 by 1255mm. (24.5 by 49.5 inches). Engraved plan on three sheets joined, original outline hand-colour, a few marks and a few small tears skilfully repaired. Howgego 63 intermediate state between 3 and 3a. Large and detailed plan of London.The map bears grid lines for ease of reference, the major public buildings such as Westminster Abbey, The Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham House, and the Tower of London are represented as birds-eye views. The text upon the map gives the extent of London as "7500 Geometric paces, that is above 7 English Miles and a half" from west to east and "2500 paces, or 2 miles and a half" from north to south. There are about 5000 streets. The number of houses is calculated to be 110,000. The population is guessed at "by what is eaten": "There were in one Year, when it was less by two thirds [ie. in the mid seventeenth century], 67500 Beefs, 10 times as many Sheep, Besides Poultry &c. also every Year is brought into the River 400,000 at least Charldon of Coales". Also the number of "Buryings" was said to number 26,000 per year. The amount of ale and beer produced is said to be 20,000 barrels. Bowles acknowledges the source of these numbers as Sir William Petty (1623-1687), who through some crude statistical analysis calculated the population in the mid-seventeenth century. He estimated that there were 115,846 families and 695,076 souls; more than Paris, Rome, Rouen or Amsterdam, which were said to have some 500,000 souls. To the left of the text is a list of watermen and hackney carriage rates.The present plan is an intermediate state between Howgego 63 (3) and (3a). The date in the title is the same as state 3, however, an extra sheet has been added to the extend the plan to the east to include St Dunstan and Stepney; yet the plan does not include the areas of Mile End and Limehouse present in state 3a.Scale: 11 inches to 1 statute mile.

        The History of the Grecian War: in eight books

      London: by B. Motte; for D. Brown; D. Midwinter; B. Lintott; W. Taylor; and W. and J. Innys and B. Cowse,, 1723. Written by Thucydides. Faithfully translated from the original by Thomas Hobbes of Malmsbury. With maps describing the country. The third edition, corrected and amended. In two volumes. 2 volumes, octavo (197 × 122 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, double gilt rules, red morocco labels to style. With 2 engraved folding maps and 3 engraved plates, of which 2 are folding. Engraved bookplates of William Hanbury (1704-1768), of Kelmarsh, Northants, and his note of acquisition dated 25 Oct 1741. Some restoration to joints and extremities, pale dampstaining at beginning of vol. I, a good copy. Hobbes's translation of Thucydides, taken (unlike the only existing English version at the time) directly from the Greek, was first published in 1629. "Forty years later, in Vita Carmine Expressa, he said that he had written it so that his contemporaries might learn from the fate of Athenian democracy how much wiser one man is than the mass of men" (Macdonald & Hargreaves). The bibliography calls for a frontispiece portrait of Hobbes, but none was apparently ever inserted in this copy, nor does ESTC call for one.

Light soiling to title-page, occasional light soiling/thumbing at fore-edge margin of some leaves, but presenting a clean and fresh appearance overall. This is a handsome copy of a scarce title. John Quincy was an English apothecary and physician whose works had considerable influence on the practice of medicine and materia medica of his day. His Pharmacopoeia officinalis & extemporanea; or, A compleat English dispensatory, first published in 1718, remained in print until 1782, reaching the fifteenth edition. His Lexicon physico- medicum: or, A new physical dictionary, published in 1719, proved to be as popular, going through more than eleven editions, the last in 1811. The eighteen lectures in Praelectiones Pharmaceuticae had been delivered at Quincy's own house and, after his death in 1722, were published in 1723 with the preface by Dr. Peter Shaw, who edited the works of Francis Bacon and Robert Boyle, as well as translating works by Stahl and Boerhaave.

Questo volume rappresenta una delle opere più celebri sulle fortificazioni: venne pubblicato in un periodo cruciale della storia dell?ingegneria militare, nel quale Sebastien de Vauban (1633-1707), militare e ingegnere francese, commissario generale delle fortificazioni di Luigi XIV, rivoluzionò l?arte della fortificazione e le tecniche di assedio, trasformando molte delle città della Francia settentrionale e dei Paesi Bassi; innovò il sistema del baluardo e della difesa bastionata e costruì ex novo più di 30 roccaforti (LaRochelle, St.-Malo).

Contemporary sprinkled calf, dark green morocco numbering and lettering pieces, gilt rules, covers panelled in gilt, red sprinkled edges. Bookplates of Joshua Smith MP, Stoke Park, Erlestoke, Wiltshire; later library shelfmarks on front pastedowns. A little skilful repair to extremities, an excellent set. Large folding county map incorporating view of Windsor Castle as frontispiece, the map coloured in outline; genealogical tables in text, of which 11 are folding; engraved vignette on vol. III, Zz1 recto; woodcut title vignettes and tailpieces. The first county history of Berkshire. The astrologer and antiquary Elias Ashmole (1617–1692) was appointed to the College of Arms as Windsor Herald of Arms in Ordinary in 1660. In 1667, he began collecting information for this book, but it was not to be published until after his death. Although well suited to the role and highly active in it, Ashmole resigned as Windsor herald in 1675, evidently disillusioned by factional strife within the college, and, despite pressure from many in high places, refused to take heraldic office of any kind thereafter. First published in 1719, this is the second edition; a third was published at Reading in 1736. Sir Walter Scott used Ashmole's lengthy account of the murder of Amy Robsart, the Earl of Leicester's secret wife, as the primary source for his Elizabethan novel Kenilworth.

        The small gorge at Tivoli (oil painting)

      - Henri Joseph Boichard (Versailles, 1723-1850) The small gorge at Tivoli Oil on canvas Canvas size: 28 ½" x 36" Frame size: 37 1/8" x 44 5/8" Signed and dated l.l.: Boichard 1824 Inscribed verso: Boichard à Bourges Provenance: Private collection Essen, Germany Although Henri Joseph Boichard (1723-1850) never studied with Pierre-Henri de Valenciennes (1750-1819), in this work he has clearly absorbed the lessons that the older artist imparted to his students and Salon visitors. The perspective is defined by the counter-play of light and shadow across the picture plane, and by the meandering torrent of water that cascades down the gorge from the right background, then angles across the center of the composition. Two classical figures, a herder and a maiden, steer their goats, sheep and cows across the Aniene River in the foreground. Above them can be seen a figure in silhouette pointing to the majestic falls above him. Boichard's view of the gorge at Tivoli is characteristic of French landscape painting at the turn of the nineteenth century and very much in the tradition of the above mentioned Valenciennes, but also artists such as Hubert Robert (1733-1808) and Claude-Joseph Vernet (1714-1789). The Italian landscape and particularly its ruins was popular subject matter for such French artists, many of whom traveled to Italy to experience the ancient sights firsthand. This was the era of the Grand Tour when travel throughout Europe became more prevalent and paintings of such famous locales as Tivoli were immensely popular and readily sold to tourists. Tivoli is in the Monti Tiburtini hills east of Rome and became a place of resort because of its fresh air and dramatic scenery. The Emperor Hadrian used to hunt in these hills and built his villa on the plains beneath. The Aniene River cut a deep gorge and used to have fierce waterfalls. A small circular Temple of Vesta was built here (probably in the second century BC). In Boichard's oil painting it is probable that the scene shown is just below the Temple of Vesta in what was later to become the park of Villa Gregoriana. The oil was completed just two years before the disastrous floods of 1826 which necessitated the reclamation of the old bed of the River Aniene and which resulted in the founding of the public park, commissioned by Pope Gregory XVI and founded in 1835. Henri Joseph Boichard was a pupil of Baron Jean-Baptiste Regnault and became professor of drawing at the Collèges de Bourges. It was during his time at Bourges that he completed this work.

      Claude Jombert,, Paris, 1723 - Opera in quattro volumi in 8° (cm. 20 x 13), legatura coeva in pelle, stemma alle armi della famiglia De Rochas D’Aiglun, decorato in oro ai piatti, titolo al tassello al dorso con nervi a vista e fregi dorati, tagli colorati in rosso, sguardie marmorate, ex - libris della stessa casata, bianca, frontespizi, prefazioni, (18) 460 (20) pp. al primo volume, (10) 462 (14) pp. al secondo, (6) 482 (16) pp. al terzo, (10) 446 (8) pp. al quarto tomo; 133 tavole da incisione su rame, numerate e distribuite nei quattro tomi (la maggior parte di Berey ed alcune di Chevalier) di cui 9 ripiegate; testatine, capilettera e finalini ornati in xilografia, segnalibri in seta. Magnifica edizione dell’opera princeps di Ozanam (la prima è del 1694 in soli due volumi), è una summa delle conoscenze matematiche dell'epoca. I vari trattati sono sviluppati con grande accuratezza e somma cura, e sono completati da innumerevoli figure e illustrazioni tecniche. Il primo volume tratta di aritmetica, geometria, musica, e ottica, il secondo di gnomonica, cosmografia e meccanica, il terzo di pirotecnia e fisica nella prima parte, mentre la seconda, che ha proprio occhiello e prefazione, è dedicata allo studio di vari tipi di orologi, con teorie basate sugli studi dell'"orologio elementare" di Domenico Martinelli. Il quarto volume aggiunge al titolo principale "Traite des Phosphores Naturels & Artificiels, & des Lampes Perpetuelles. Dissertation Physique & Chimique, avec l'explication des Tours de Gibeciere, de Gobelets, & autres recreatifs & divertissans", e tratta appunto di fisica, chimica, lampade e teorie empiriche varie. Importante documento dei progressi matematici del XVII e XVIII secolo che, con esperimenti anche divertenti, si occupa tra l'altro di trucchi, fuochi d'artificio, acustica, camera oscura, calendari, magnetismo, giochi con specchi e numeri, lanterna magica, oltre ad ogni tipo di studio sugli orologi, il tutto corredato da un ricchissimo ed esaustivo apparato iconografico. La ricchezza e completezza dei trattati (amplissimi e particolareggiati) e l’esposizione piana e precisa ne fanno un caposaldo nel genere trattato. Raro, ed ancor più raro da reperirsi nello stato in cui è qui presentato, col valore aggiunto dell’appartenenza alla biblioteca personale di Albert De Rochas D’Aiglun, erudito scienziato del IX secolo, colonnello, amministratore della Scuola politecnica, dotto grecista, traduttore di antichi testi di scienze militari e arti meccaniche che consacrò poi la sua attività alle ricerche psichiche, con esperienze ed esposizioni teoriche. Opera in eccellenti condizioni di conservazione, con fresca impressione e buoni margini, legatura robusta, carta ancor chiara e greve.
