        PHILOSPHIÆ NATURALIS PRINCIPIA MATHEMATICA

      Amsterdam: Sociatatus, 1723. full calf reporoduction of an oxford binding, gilt on spine. 98392|100183|102176|103333/OK. 4to. full calf reporoduction of an oxford binding, gilt on spine. (xviii), 484, (8), (xii), 107+(1) pages. Text in Latin. Early reprint of the second edition (Wallis, Newton and Newtonia 1672-1975, 12; See Dibner, Heralds of Science, 11, Horblit 78, and Printing & the Mind of Man 161 for the first edition). Sir Isaac Newton's Principia, Another 'ultima' with additions, according to the Wallis's bibliography. Prefaces to 1713 edition (Cambridge: C. Crownfield) by the author, and by Roger Cotes of Cambridge. Table of contents. Also includes Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Flux, ac Differentias; cum Enumeratione Linearum Tertii Ordinis, with preface by W. Jones. Numerous diagrams in text. The book constitutes the greatest work in the history of science (Printing and the Mind of Man). The Principia is the foundation work on dynamics and gravitation and the first successful scientific model of the mechanisms of the universe. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws (ibid), these being the laws of gravitation and planetary motion, which established a concept of the universe unchallenged until Einstein.

        THE WORKS OF JOHN SHEFFIELD. EARLY OF MULGRAVE, MARQUIS OR NORMANDY, AND DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM

      London: Printed for John Barber, and Sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster, 1723.. Two volumes. [16],453; [6],3-16,[2]-295pp. Quarto (285 x 225 mm). Modern three quarter calf and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt labels. Frontis in each volume (the first a portrait by Vertue after Kneller, the second a monument. Ornately engraved head and tail pieces. Titles in red and black. Some scattered foxing and occasional dusting of margins, pencil shelf numbers partially erased from upper fore corners of titles, a few old pencil marks and pencil 'x's (though a few are retraced in ink) in the 2nd volume, 7 words of early ink marginalia on II:126; still, generally a very good set, with the bookplate in each volume (on the verso of the 1st volume half-title, and verso of 2nd volume title) of Jacob de Bouverie, 1st Viscount Folkestone. First edition. Pope edited this set at the request of Sheffield's widow, and under the threat of an impending edition from Curll, the Royal licence to print was granted to Barber. Nonetheless, three days after publication, agents of the Crown seized the bulk of the edition due to alleged seditious passages in "The Feast of the Gods" and "Some Account of the Revolution" as they appear in volume two. These sections were canceled in many sets, although Pope was able to affect their release and the replacement of the sections with reprints on different paper. In the wake of an unaltered edition (1726), a separate printing of the offending sections appeared from the Hague in 1727. This set appears to have escaped confiscation and mutilation, as the two sections are intact in their original form, and is uncommon thus. GRIFFITH 137. ROTHSCHILD 1834 & 1835. ESTC T86939.

        Cyprinus orfus – Die Orfe – L'Orfe – The Orf (modern: Leuciscus idus)

      Kupferstich, altkoloriert. Blattgröße: ca. 39,5 x 24,5 cm. Wohlerhaltenes Blatt. Beeinträchtigungen, die auf den Bildern nicht erkennbar sind, werden an dieser Stelle angegeben. Tafel 96 aus dem Werk: Allgemeine Naturgeschichte der Fische, von Bloch, Marcus Elieser (1723-1799), erschienen bei in Berlin, 1782-1795. Aus dem opulentesten Werk der Ichthyologie, das jemals gedruckt worden ist. Marcus Elieser Bloch war Sohn eines Rabbiners und wuchs in prekärsten Verhältnissen auf. Zunächst als Hauslehrer eines Hamburger Wundarztes beschäftigt, eignete er sich die Grundkenntnisse der Anatomie an und siedelte bald nach Berlin über, wo er durch die Unterstützung ortsansässiger Verwandter ein Studium der Medizin begann. Sein Augenmerk galt aber in erster Linie der Zoologie, insbesondere dem Studium der Fischfauna der Weltmeere. Seine Allgemeine Naturgeschichte der Fische, die in den ersten 3 Bänden die Fischfauna Deutschlands behandelte, in den weiteren 9 Bänden jene anderer europäischer und exotischer Gegenden, war nicht allein ein wissenschaftliches Meisterwerk, sonder war darüberhinaus geprägt von einer zuvor nicht erblickten künstlerischen Qualität in der Darstellung jener Lebewesen. Bemerkenswert ist dabei, daß Bloch größtenteils auf seine eigene Sammlung ichthyologischer Specimen als Vorlage zurückgriff, und nur selten auf andere Quellen vertraute. Die enormen Produktionskosten für die Illustration dieses Werkes konnte Bloch dadurch bestreiten, daß er die einen Großteil der Tafeln von Geldgebern finanzieren ließ, deren Unterstützung durch einen gestochenen Vermerk auf selbigem der Öffentlichkeit bekannt gegeben wurde. Unter diesen finden sich naturgemäß zahlreiche hochstehende Persönlichkeiten der Zeit von Rang und Namen. - Wir haben etwa 80 Tafeln des Werkes im Angebot, darunter zahlreiche der HIghlights, wie den Weißen Hai, mehrere Rochenarten, Fetzenfisch, Salmoniden, diverse Süßwasserfische, Moränen und Igelfische. - ENGLISH: Copper engraving with original (or contemporary) hand colouring. Leaf size: ca. 39,5 x 24,5 cm. Leaf size app. 15 x 9.5 inches. In generally fine condition (any defects which cannot be seen in the images, will be stated here). Plate 96 from the work: Allgemeine Naturgeschichte der Fische, by Bloch, Marcus Elieser (1723-1799), published with in Berlin, 1782-1795.. From the most magnificient work on ichthyology ever published. Marcus Elieser Bloch was son of a rabbi grewing up in grinding poverty. Despite lacking knowledge of writing and reading German, his education in Hebraic language provided him a position as tutor to the family of a surgeon in the city of Hamburg. Directing his interests towards anatomy during that period he later moved to Berlin for studying medicine, a chance he could only grab through the assistance of local family. His main focus however lay on zoology, especially the study of fishes to which he devoted a significant period of his life-time. His work "Allgemeine Naturgeschichte der Fische" (=Natural History of fishes), of which the first 3 parts were devoted to the species native to Germany while the others were dealing with other European and a wast amount of exotic species, must not only be regarded as a scientific masterpiece that is still referred to today, but also as a masterpiece of art employing many of the foremost engravers at that time. Remarkable though is, that Bloch for the vast majority of species depicted did not drew from foreign sources but from specimens being part of his private collection (today housed in the Humbold-University of Berlin). As the costs for illustrating his opus magnus were simply tremendous, Bloch also invented (?) a new way of fundraising: Since many of the plates could first be brought into print by the engagement of high-standing persons - those oftenly comming from the Prussian nobility - Bloch immortalized their merits for the progress of natural history in stating their names in the print itself at a prominent place just beyond the species depicted while the caption itself was humbly placed in the print's upper corners. - We can offer a selection of about 80 prints from that work, roaming many of the highlight illustrations such as the White Shark, Several species of Rays, the Toad Fish, several Salmonides and porcupine fishes.

His work "Allgemeine Naturgeschichte der Fische" (=Natural History of fishes), of which the first 3 parts were devoted to the species native to Germany while the others were dealing with other European and a wast amount of exotic species, must not only be regarded as a scientific masterpiece that is still referred to today, but also as a masterpiece of art employing many of the foremost engravers at that time. Remarkable though is, that Bloch for the vast majority of species depicted did not drew from foreign sources but from specimens being part of his private collection (today housed in the Humbold-University of Berlin). As the costs for illustrating his opus magnus were simply tremendous, Bloch also invented (?) a new way of fundraising: Since many of the plates could first be brought into print by the engagement of high-standing persons - those oftenly comming from the Prussian nobility - Bloch immortalized their merits for the progress of natural history in stating their names in the print itself at a prominent place just beyond the species depicted while the caption itself was humbly placed in the print's upper corners. - We can offer a selection of about 80 prints from that work, roaming many of the highlight illustrations such as the White Shark, Several species of Rays, the Toad Fish, several Salmonides and porcupine fishes. Bodianus apua – Der Apua – L'Apus (modern: Mycteroperca venenosa). , Berlin 1782-1795. Kupferstich, altkoloriert. Blattgröße: ca. 39,5 x 24,5 cm. Blattmaße: ca. 39 x 24 cm. Wohlerhaltenes Blatt.

Stahl was the originator of the phlogiston theory, which dominated chemistry until the end of the 18th century. Stahl took the structure of his theory from Becher, who had stated air, water and earth to be the three elementary principles with water and earth the basis of all material things, and who had further subdivided the principle of earth into the three principles of substantiality, combustibility and weight/ductility/volatility. Stahl elaborated from Becher&#39;s "second earth" a new chemical principle, phlogiston, a substance 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 not longer take place. The flaws in the phlogiston theory are obvious, and it did not survive the 18th century; however, it served as an important link between the older chemical concepts and the new, an attempt to modify the existing intellectual framework in order to account for new experimental observations (Norman). "Johann Samuel Carl, a student of Stahl&#39;s, arranged these lecture notes of Stahl&#39;s for publication with the author&#39;s approval. The lectures were first delivered in 1684 and manuscript copies being "abroad led to this authorized version..

        Oeuvres Diverses de Mr Rousseau

      London - Jacob Tonson and Jean Watts, 1723 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The works of Jean-Baptiste Rousseau. First edition. Complete in two volumes. With beautifully decorative head and tail pieces throughout both volumes, and an engraved frontispiece to volume I. Jean-Baptiste Rousseau (6 April 1671 17 March 1741) was a French poet. He was born in Paris, the son of a shoemaker, and was well educated. As a young man, he gained favour with Boileau, who encouraged him to write. He went to London as an attache with the French diplomat Tallard, and, in days when literature still led to high position, seemed likely to achieve success. His poems, as yet printed only singly or in manuscript, acquired him a great reputation, due to the dearth of genuine lyrical poetry between Jean Racine and Andre de Chenier. In 1701 he was made a member of the Academie des inscriptions. Few writers were so frequently reprinted during the 18th century. With bookplate of Chillingham Castle to pastedowns and copperplate inscription to front free endpaper of volume II; The Earl of Tankerville, his Lordship&#39;s book, 1736. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, rather worn; all boards held by cords only. Internally, front blank of volume I and rear free endpaper of volume II are detached, but textblocks complete andotherwise generally firmly bound. Small numbered label to both front free endpapers.

This is the variant with the reprinted title page dated 1723 but with pagination and register matching that of the 1719 edition (Upcott, p.9). ESTC T140220. Elias Ashmole (1617-1692) was an antiquary and astrologer whose life straddles the upheavals of 17th century England. Although a committed royalist he met and developed a lifelong friendship with the astrologer William Lily, who, at the time of their meeting, was making predictions favourable to the parliaments cause. Ashmole&#39;s career as an antiquary seems to start in the 1650s, when he catalogued the Tradescant collection, the ealiest known catalogue of an English &#39;Cabinet of Curiosities&#39;. His interests as an antiquary were given further impetus when he met and became friends with William Dugdale in the mid 1650s. Although not published until after his death, Ashmole had begun collecting material for this book in 1667. Ashmole&#39;s extensive collections would eventually be given to Oxford University on the condition that they built a suitable building to house them. That building opened in 1683 as the Ashmolean Museum, the first public museum in modern Europe., 8vo .

        The Antiquities of Berkshire

      London, for W. Mears, and J. Hooke,, 1723. With A large Appendix of many Valuable Original Papers, Pedigrees of the most considerable Families in the said County, and a particular Account of the Castle, College, and Town of Windsor. 3 volumes, octavo. Contemporary sprinkled calf, dark green morocco numbering and lettering pieces, gilt rules, covers panelled in gilt, red sprinkled edges. 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. Bookplates of Joshua Smith MP, Stoke Park, Erlestoke, Wiltshire; later library shelfmarks on front pastedowns. A little skilful repair to extremities, an excellent set. The first county history of Berkshire. The astrologer and antiquary Elias Ashmole (1617&#150;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&#39;s lengthy account of the murder of Amy Robsart, the Earl of Leicester&#39;s secret wife, as the primary source for his Elizabethan novel Kenilworth.
