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. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manuscript; Kingdom of Hungary
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 wear 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. $1,500. * 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.

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 ach … [Click Below for Full Description]

"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.

Stahl, Georg Ernest
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 n … [Click Below for Full Description]

Zt.Das berühmteste der Werke Carpzovs, 1635 erstmals in Wittenberg erschienen. - Benedict Carpzov (der Jüngere) 1595-1666, Jurist, Angehöriger der aus Spanien stammenden Familie Carpezana, die zahlreiche prominente Juristen und Theologen hervorgebracht hatte, verfasste das vorl. Werk als er das Richteramt am Leipziger Schöppenstuhl bekleidete. Es fand nicht nur in Sachsen, sondern auch außerhalb bei den Gerichten (für mehr als 100 Jahre) `ein fast gesetzmäßiges Ansehen` (ADB IV, 14). Es stellt das materielle Strafrecht und das Strafprozessrecht vom Anfang des 17. Jahrhunderts dar und veränderte das deutsche Strafrecht. Laut Ph. Andr. Oldenburger soll B. Carpzov über 20.000 Todesurteile, insbesondere in Hexenprozessen veranlaßt haben. Nach Carpzov war Schädigung durch Zauberei gar nicht einmal erforderlich, selbst Heilzauber war aufgrund des unterstellten Teufelsbundes todeswürdig. Die Luftfahrt der Hexen zum Blocksberg, der Teufelspakt und die Teufelsbuhlschaft waren für den sächsischen Kriminalisten bewiesene `grande delicta` woran kein vernünftiger Mensch mehr zweifeln könne. Nach diesem großen Rechtswissenschafter war es schon strafbar, daran nicht zu glauben, denn das war Ketzerei. Carpzov stand im 17. Jahrhundert auch synonym für eine abermalige Verschärfung des Hexenprozesses (gegen die einige wenige deutsche Juristen wie Justus Oldenkop den Mut hatten aufzutreten).
