        RECREATIONS MATHEMATIQUES ET PHYSIQUES. Qui contiennent plusieurs problemes d'Aritmetique, de Geometrie, de Musique, d'Optique, de Gnomonique, de Cosmographie, de Mecanique, de Pyrotechnie, & de Physique. Avec un Traite des Horloges Elementaires. Nouvelle Edition, revue, corrigee & augmentee.

      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.

        La Florida del Inca. Historia del Adelantado, Hernando de Soto, Governador, y Capitan Generl del Reino de la Florida. de otros heroicos caballeros, Españoles, e Indios

      En la oficina Real, y a Costa de Nicolas Rodriguez, Madrid 1723 - [xxx]+268+[12] pages with red and black title. Small folio (12" x 8 1/4") bound in original leather with gilt lettering and decoration to spine. Third edition. The first edition of the La Florida was published by Pedro Crasbeeck at Lisbon. A reprint of this edition with emendations was made at Madrid in 1723 under the editorship of Andres Gonzalez Baria Carballido y Zuniga, which was quickly sold out and a third edition was published that same year with out the fold out map. Garcilaso, from time to time both in Peru and in Spain, encountered me who had participated in De Soto's expedition, but on several occasions declares that the material for the La Florida was derived solely from three sources. The account of Alonso de Carmona was received from the author himself, and that of Juan Coles he found in a somewhat battered condition at the establishment of a printer in Cordova. But the bulk of his facts came to him orally from noble Spaniard, who he eventually cornered in Las Posadas. The identity of this man he for some reason leaves shrouded in mystery; nevertheless, there is sufficient evidence for speculation, and historians in general have concluded that he was non other than Gonzalo Silvestre, a native of Herrera de Alcantara, whose fine horsemanship and exceptional boldness displayed as he gallops through the pages of La Florida. Condition: Spine head chipped away, edge wear with rubbing, leather scuffed, some margins professionally repaired else a good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Palau 354791, 354792, 105049. - Vollständige Sammlung der von Gonzalez de Barcia herausgegebenen 3 Hauptwerke. - Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1619), in Cuzco geborener Sohn des Conqujstadore Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega, war einer der wichtigsten Chronisten der Geschichte der Inkas sowie der Eroberung Südamerikas durch die Spanier. Nach dem Tode seines Vaters 1560 kam er nach Spanien, um seine Vorrechte als Sohn eines Conquistadoren einzufordern. Aus politischen Gründen wurden ihm die Privilegien verwehrt. Er kehrte nicht mehr nach Peru zurück, beschaffte sich aber Quellen und Unterlagen und schrieb aus der eigenen Erinnerung zwischen 1605 und 1617 drei Werke zur Geschichte Südamerikas aus der Sicht der Inka. - Gonzalez de Barcia (1673-1723) gilt in der neueren Forschung als der Begründer der modernen Amerikanistik. Er gab, neben seinen vielfältigen Aufgaben am Spanischen Hof, er war einer der Gründer der königlichen Akademie, eine Reihe von historischen Texten zur Geschichte der spanischen Eroberungen heraus, die im 18. Jahrhundert nur schwer, oder gar nicht zugänglich waren. Gonzalez de Barcia editierte bis 1737 total 13 historische Textsammlungen. (Vgl. Jonathan Earl Carlyon: Andrés González de Barcía and the creation of the colonial Spanish American, Toronto 2005). - Vereinzelt leicht fleckig. Vorsätze mit Leimschatten. Einbände etwas berieben. Band 4 mit angerissenem Kapital. - Selten. - Complete collection of Gonzalez de Barcia’s three edited chief works - Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1619),was born as the son of the conquistador Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega in Cuzco and was one of the most important chronicler of the history of the Incas and the conquest of South America by the Spaniards. After his father‘s death in 1560, he returned to Spain to claim his privileges as son of a conquistador, which he did not receive for political reasons (being a son of an Incan princess). He never returned to Peru but collected information and sources as to write three books between 1605 and 1617 on the history of South America as seen by the Incas. - Gonzalez de Barcia (1673-1743) is considered as the first Americanist. Besides his different duties in the Royal court - he was one of the founding members of the Real Academia Española - he published the most important historical works on the conquest of New World by the Spaniards, many of which were already rare in the 18th century. Up to 1737 Gonzalez de Barcia edited 13 compilations of historical texts. (Comp. Jonathan Earl Carlyon: Andrés González de Barcía and the creation of the colonial Spanish American, Toronto 2005). Sporadically lightly stained. Endpapers with shadows of glue. Bindings lightly worn.

        Dreiviertelfigur nach links an der Staffelei sitzend.

      . Schabkunstblatt von W. Baillie (1723-1792), nach einem Selbstbildnis, auf Bütten. 35,8:25,5 cm. Guter Abdruck mit Rändchen um die Plattenkante, etwas stockfleckig. Literatur: Nagler Monogr. Bd. V, 1552, 4; Andresen (Baillie) 17.. Sofonisba Anguissola war die erste Malerin der Renaissance, die europäische Berühmtheit erlangte. Sie wurde von ihrem Vater schon früh zu dem Porträtmaler B. Campi (1522-1591) geschickt. 1549 setzte Sofonisba ihr Studium bei B. Gatti, genannt Il Sojaro (um 1495 - um 1575) fort und wurde nachfolgend eine gefragte Porträtistin, die sich neben ihren männlichen Kollegen behaupten konnte. 1559 weilte sie am Hof des Vizekönigs Duca di Sessa in Mailand, von dort aus ging sie im darauffolgenden Jahr nach Madrid an den königlichen Hof. Dort wurde sie die Hofdame und Zeichenlehrerin der erst 14jährigen Isabella von Valois, der Gattin Philipp II. Nach deren frühem Tod im Jahr 1568 diente sie für wenige Jahre ihrer Nachfolgerin, der Erzherzogin Anna von Österreich. Um 1573 heiratete Sofonisba Fabrizio von Moncada, den Bruder des Prinzen von Paterno auf Sizilien. Nach dessen Tod 1578 vermählte sie sich ein Jahr später erneut, in Genua den adeligen Schiffskapitän Orazio Lomellino, mit dem sie zunächst in dessen Heimatstadt Genua und ab etwa 1615 in Palermo lebte. Beziehungen zu Michelangelo und Vasari lassen früh auf die Bedeutung schließen, die ihrem Werk beigemessen wurde.

        Primera [-tercera] parte de los viente I un libros rituales I Monarchia Indiana, con el origen y guerras, de los Indios Ocidentales de sus poblaciones, descubrimiento, conquista, conversion y otras cosas maravillosas de la mesma tierra

      Madrid: Franco, 1723. Three volumes, folio, with engraved titles and a folding map with original handcolouring; neat old library stamps in several places; a handsome set in eighteenth-century Spanish polished marbled calf, double crimson morocco spine labels. With the map in rare original colour. This is the second and best edition of Torquemada's book, with the important map in rare and handsome original colour. This map (which did not appear in the 1615 Seville edition) centres on the Pacific, and shows the Chinese coast, the Philippines, Solomons, New Guinea and "Tierra Austral" to the west and Mexico and South America to the east. It is more often seen uncoloured. The preface mentions the extreme rarity of the first edition - only three copies were known in Madrid in 1723 - and explains that most copies had apparently been lost in a shipwreck, presumably en route to Mexico. The book is especially important in the literature of Pacific exploration because of Torquemada's account of Quiros' voyage of 1605, in which he sailed from Callao to locate the fabled Southern Continent. The earliest extensive description of the expedition to be printed, this remained the only reliable source available to navigators, geographers and historians until the nineteenth century. Celsus Kelly ("The narrative of Pedro Fernandez de Quirós" in Historical Studies, Australia and New Zealand IX/34, May 1960) has shown that Torquemada had access to Quiros' own account of the voyage as well as to the journal of Munilla, the commissary of the Franciscans who was also on the voyage. In fact Torquemada probably met Quiros in Mexico City in 1607, and again in Madrid in 1613. Kelly shows too that Torquemada probably also interviewed two other members of the expedition, the ensign Pedro López de Sojo and the sergeant Pedro García de Lumbreras. Torquemada's book is important for many other reasons, not least for its account of Legazpi's expedition to the Philippines (see Retana, 226). Hill describes the book as the 'key work on the early history of Spanish North America, particularly Mexico, the Southwest and California… the primary source of Vizcaíno's 1596 and 1602 expeditions and voyage of discovery to California. It contains Father Antonio de la Ascensión's letter which relates to Vizcaíno's voyage during which most of the bays, headlands and rivers, including San Diego, were renamed. Torquemada also deals at length with Juan de Oñate's conquest of New Mexico, and briefly with the expeditions of Coronado, Alarcón, Espizo and Niza… The Mexican historian and statesman Lucas Alamán called Torquemada the Livy of New Spain… '(Hill). The section of Torquemada's book dealing with the Vizcaíno expedition was published as a separate volume by the Book Club of California in 1933.

        Principia mathematica. Second Amsterdam edition

      Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societatis, 1723. Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societatis, 1723. <p>Newton, Isaac (1642-1727). Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica. 4to. [28], 484, [20], 107pp. 3 folding engraved plates. Amsterdam: sumptibus Societatis, 1723. 235 x 182 mm. Modern crushed morocco, gilt-lettered spine. Minor marginal worming, light dampstaining on several leaves, but very good. </p><p>Second Amsterdam edition. Three authorized editions of Newton&#39;s Principia mathematica were issued during his lifetime, but demand for the work was so great on the Continent that two unauthorized reprints were also published in Amsterdam in 1714 and 1723. "These Amsterdam reprints were a major undertaking, requiring the cutting of new wood-blocks for the figures and a new setting of type. The second reprint (1723) contains not only four tracts by Newton and W. Jones&#39;s &#39;Praefatio Editoris,&#39; but also extracts from four letters of Newton&#39;s. These tracts are: De analysi per aequationes infinitas (first published by Jones in 1711), De quadratura curvarum and Enumeratio linearum tertii ordinis (published with the Opticks in 1704 and the Optice in 1706, but eliminated from the second English edition of the Opticks in 1717/18), and the Methodus differentialis. But this whole collection-the four tracts, the extracts from Newton&#39;s letters, and Jones&#39;s Praefatio-was merely a reprint, without alteration, of a collection that was first published as a small book in London in 1711. It was reissued separately in Amsterdam in 1723 as well as being included as a supplement to the reprint of the Principia. How curious indeed that Newton&#39;s long-cherished plan of publishing De quadratura together with the Principia should have been realized only in this presumably unauthorized Amsterdam reprint of 1723!" (Cohen, Introduction to Newton&#39;s Principia, p. 257). Babson (second supplement) 004. </p>

        Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica

      Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societas, 1723. Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societas,, 1723. Auctore Isaaco Newtono, Equite Aurato. Editio Ultima Cui Accedit Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Fluxiones Ac Differentias Cum Enumeratione Linearum Tertii Ordinis. Quarto (255 × 192 mm). Contemporary Dutch vellum boards, boards with blind stamped central design and double ruled in blind, spine lettered in manuscript, raised bands, red speckled edges, title in red and black ink. Woodcut vignette to title page, 3 engraved folding plates, numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. Small bookplate to front pastedown. Binding somewhat soiled, scattered minor foxing, occasional marginal toning, inscription on the front free endpaper abraded with resulting small holes, and small puncture to the rear pastedown that is lifting at the edges. An excellent copy. Second Amsterdam edition, two parts in one volume as issued. This is the only edition of the Principia to include the text of the 1711 Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Fluxiones ac Differentias, Newton&#39;s first independent treatise on mathematics, containing his invention of the calculus - here with a separate titlepage, pagination, and index. The "greatest work in the history of science" (PMM) in which Isaac 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&#39;s Origin of Species" (PMM).
