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's career as an antiquary seems to start in the 1650s, when he catalogued the Tradescant collection, the ealiest known catalogue of an English 'Cabinet of Curiosities'. 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'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 .

        PRAELECTIONES PHARMACEUTICAE; OR A COURSE OF LECTURES IN PHARMACY

      1723. QUINCY, John. PRAELECTIONES PHARMACEUTICAE; OR A COURSE OF LECTURES IN PHARMACY, CHYMICAL AND GALENICAL; EXPLAINING THE WHOLE DOCTRINE OF THAT ART. By the late Learned Dr. John Quincy. Published from his original Manuscript, with a Preface, by P. S. Shaw, M.D. London: Printed for E. Bell, et al., 1723. First edition. xv, 212 pp. Small quarto, newly bound to period style in dark blue 3/4 morocco with marbled paper sides, and a gilt-stamped label on spine. Ex library, with a faint ink stamp on t.p and five other pages (nos. i, xv, 51, 109, 161). 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.

        Apparatus Biblicus sive Manuductio ad Sacram Scripturam, Tum clarius, tum facilius intelligendam

      Jacobum Certe Lugduni (Lyons) Jacobum Certe 1723 Editio Novissima (New edition) vg Quarto. [20], 422, [62]pp (Tables and Index). Original marbled calf with gold lettering and tooling on spine. All edges red. Marbled endpapers. Printer's device on title page. Decorative head-, and tailpieces. In this work, Bernard Lamy, the renowned French Oratorian mathematician and theologian, calls in question the historical character of the book of Tobias and book of Judith, and maintains that even after the Council of Trent a difference of authority should be recognized between the proto-canonical and deutero-canonical books of the Bible. This study examines also such subjects as the history of the Hebrews and the Holy Land, a description of the Tabernacle and Temple, a history of the scriptures, and a great many tangential matters like the plants, animals, minerals, diseases, and customs mentioned in the Bible. This book is exquisitely illustrated with 1 in text engraving, and 22 fine copper plate engravings bound at rear (including 11 folding). One folding plate shows the Greek & Hebrew alphabets. Others include 11 plates depicting animals and plants, two maps, a plan of Jerusalem, a detailed temple plan, a priest with garments, a rabbi with tefillin, and 3 charts of coinage and measurements. Some age wear along edges of covers. Gold tooling partly faded on spine. Text in Latin. Binding in overall good, interior in very good condition.

        Principia mathematica. Second Amsterdam edition

      Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societatis, 1723. No Dust Jacket. 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. Second Amsterdam edition. Three authorized editions of Newton'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's 'Praefatio Editoris,' but also extracts from four letters of Newton'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's letters, and Jones'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'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's Principia, p. 257). Babson (second supplement) 004.

        Historiae Naturalis Libri XVII quos interpretatione et notis illustravit Joannes Harduinus e societate Jesu, jussu regis christianissimi Ludovici Magni, in usum serenissimi Delphini. Editio altera emendatior & auctior. 2 Tomi (3 Partes).

      Paris, Typis Antonii-Urbani Coustelier, 1723. Folio. Two cont. full vellum w. seven raised bands on backs and blindstamped ornamentations on boards. Leather title-labels on backs. Bdg.s somewhat worn. Corners bumped and vellum loosening a bit from front-board of volume one. Woodcut title- and end-vignettes, double-page engr. map of "Flumina Quatuor Paradisii Terrestris" and 11 full-page engr. plates depicting coins. 32 pp., double-page map, 790, (2), 1290 pp., 11 ff. (engr. plates).. Second, but by far the best, Harduin-edition. The first was printed in 1685. Consisting of two volumes, volume two divided into two parts, the second part containing the Index Geographicus, Index Nomina Propria, Index Verborum et Sententiarum. Volume two also with the Index Emendationum. Latin text with many very elaborated notes."Of these editions (Paris 1685 (4to) and 1723), by the celebrated Father Harduin, the second edition of 1723, is by far the more copious, splendid, and critical performance. In forming the text, fifteen MSS. were consulted, but only eight of them collated; the excerpta of the remaining seven MSS. were given as by former editors. Explanatory notes are placed under the text, and critical ones are inserted at the end of each book... This edition is upon the whole a very erudite and valuable performance, and may be considered as one of the most useful and extensive works by which the genious and writings of Pliny have been illustrated." (Dibdin 2:325)
