        The Compleat Fisherman. Being a Large and Particular Account of all the Several Ways of Fishing now Practiced in Europe, with Abundance of Curious Secrets and Niceties in the Art of Fishing?

      R. Hopkins 12mo, period full calf, spine gilt, early rebacking with spine leather laid down, folding copper-engraved frontispiece, [6], 234 pp. Binding rubbed, and with a little wear, hinges are cracked, but still firm, lacking front free endpaper, pencil notation on pastedown, frontispiece creased and a little foxed, some light foxing and soiling; otherwise very good. This is a rather scarce fishing title that has come up at auction only a couple of times in the past 20 years. The frontispiece illustrates the different types of fishing, including net, pole, spear and trident. The author indicates that while there have been attempts to teach the art of fishing, knowledge of the art seems to have been one that is only available in individual experience. He promises to provide a 'short and sweet' instruction on the subject for the reader. Saunders covers the types of equipment, bait, types of fish, and location to do it right.

        An Experimental Enquiry concerning the Natural Powers of Water and Wind to Turn Mills, and Other Machines, Depending on a Circular Motion,

      pp100-174. *John Smeaton (1724 -1792) English civil engineer responsible for the design of bridges, canals, harbours and lighthouses. He was also a capable mechanical engineer and an eminent physicist. Smeaton was the first self-proclaimed civil engineer, and often regarded as the "father of civil engineering". He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1753, and in 1759 won the Copley Medal for his research into the mechanics of waterwheels and windmills. This present 1759 paper "An Experimental Enquiry Concerning the Natural Powers of Water and Wind to Turn Mills and Other Machines Depending on Circular Motion" addressed the relationship between pressure and velocity for objects moving in air, and his concepts were subsequently developed to devise the 'Smeaton Coefficient'. Within the complete volume of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol 51, Part I, for 1759, comprising, x, 457pp., small quarto, complete with 10 engraved extending or folding plates, late 19thC library cloth with a neat unlinked library name stamp on general title and foot of last leaves, a good copy, London, Davis, printer to the Royal Society,1760.

      Leipzig, Gross & Fritsch, 1724. 4to. Entire volume present. Nice contemporary full vellum. Small yellow paper label pasted to top of spine and library-label to inside of front board. Two smaller library stamps to title-page. Internally some browning and brownspotting, due to the paper quality. Overall a nice and tight copy. [Riccati-paper:] pp. 66-73. [Bernouilli-paper:] pp. 73-75. [Entire volume: (2), 532, (34) pp.].. The important first printing of Riccati's main work, his influential "Animadversiones in aequationes differentiales secundi gradus", in which the famous Riccati-equation is presented + Bernouilli's famous note on it."In his "Animadversiones in aequationes differentiales secundi gradus," published in Acta Eruditorum in 1724, Riccati suggested the study of cases of integrability [...] which is now known by his name. In response to this suggestion Nikolaus II Bernoulli wrote an important treatise on the equation and Daniel Bernoulli presented, in his Exercitationes quaedam mathematicae, the conditions under which it may be integrated by the method of separation of the variables. Euler also integrated it." (DSB, XI)."In the supplement volume to Acta Eruditorum, Riccati's paper is immediately followed by Daniel Bernoulli' Notata (St. 5.). As the latter admitted in the Exercitationes, he had Riccati's paper in his hands for two days before it was sent to Leipzig. In this short paper Daniel Bernoulli first claims that equation (D) is not an appropriate example because by substituting dy=q it can easily ("Haud magno negotio") be reduced to a first order differential equation." (Die Werke von Daniel Bernoulli, 1996, Birkhäuser, Volker Zimmermann (edt). "Riccati ( 1676 - 1754) was the son of a noble family who held land near Venice. His renown was such that Peter the Great invited him to come to Russia as president of the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences. [...]. Riccati carried on an extensive correspondence with mathematicians all over Europe. His work were collected and published, four years after his death, by his sons, of whom two, Vincenzo and Giordano were themselves eminent mathematicians. (DSB, XI)

Reviewing the text for flaws beyond the customary waviness and age darkening, some light staining of text upper areas is noted at 1st page of TOC, some smudge elsewhere noted, no noting in text seen (excepting old owner name under title title page) wonderfully legible, no dog ear seen. Volume 2 printing data, "Printed for the editor by Joseph Downing in Bartholomew-Close and Henry Woodfall in the Strand-1734." After replaced endsheets, title page, Verso has penned note "The original manuscript of both volumes of this history will be deposited in the Cotton library by T. Burnet" boxed in double red lines. After this come a 10 leaf(20 page) subscriber list. Following comes TOC of the 2nd volume numbered 729 to 740. Actual text commences running page 1 (no number) thru 764 pages including a long index. Reviewing the text, the first 40 pages or so have large but mild ancient stain at upper area. The entirity of the upper text is also affected, same, but more mildly so. This darkens again at the end of the work. A similar stain affects the lower back pages. Also the piece has more fleck, smudge and corrected dog era than its brother, yet, spendid in its considerable age. Both items text edges have much edge darkening but a clean, unsmudged appearance. Looking at the exteriors they seem fine, excepting volume one which has 2 tiny imperfections where the paper meets the spine leather. one is a tiny chip out, pencil eraser size, and a tiny upper area ripple. Volume II has variegation of leather color on spine, suspect this is as the leather/cow was made.

        Synodorum generalium, ac provincialium decreta, et canones, scholiis, notis, ac historica actorum dissertatione illustrati, per f. christianum lupum, iprensem, ordinis heremitarum sancti augustini, sacrae theologiae in alma lovaniensi universitate doctorem, ac regium primarium professorem ... venetiis, albrizzi, 1724-29.

      Dodici volumi di cm. 35, pp. 400 ca. ciascuno. Bel ritratto all'antiporta del primo volume e bello stemma gesuitico in calcografia inciso da Zuliani al centro di ciascun frontespizio. Capolettera e testate in xilografia. Perfetta legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, dorsi a piccoli nervi con titoli in oro su tasselli. Tagli spruzzati. Esemplare marginoso, freschissimo ed in eccellente stato di conservazione. La cura dell'opera affidata al padre Filippini di Ravenna contiene alcuni scritti mai apparsi precedentemente. Christian Wolf nasce a Ypres nelle Fiandre il 12 giugno 1612 ed a 15 anni entra nell'ordine degli Eremiti di S. Agostino. Insegna filosofia e teologia a Colonia e Lovanio e, grazie alla sua reputazione, diventa amico del cardinale Fabio Chigi, poi papa Alessandro VII. Accusato di giansenismo viene chiamato a Roma a giustificare la sua fede dove rimane per cinque anni. Tornato a Lovanio succede a Gerard van Wern alla cattedra di regio professore, ma muore il 10 luglio 1681, prima di prenderne possesso. La sua opera consta soprattutto di raccolte di materiali altrui, trascrizioni di manoscritti, lavori di erudizione filologica nel campo della patrologia greca e latina. Wolf viene generalmente ricordato per la sua sapienza ed erudizione. Nell'"Histoire litteraire de la république des lettres" del gennaio 1726, dando l'annuncio dell'avviata edizione veneziana delle opere, si trova invece questo curioso giudizio sul Wolf: "Un habile homme, mais rempli de préjugés, and opinatre à n'en jamais démordre".

        Exercitationes Quaedam Mathematicae.Venice: Domenico Lovisa, 1724. First edition.

      A fine copy, printed on thick paper, of Daniel Bernoulli's first mathematical publication. "In 1724 Bernoulli published [with the help of Christian Goldbach] his Exercitationes mathematicae in Venice, which attracted so much attention that he was called to the St. Petersburg Academy [where he met with Leonhard Euler]. ... This treatise combined four separate works dealing, respectively, with the game of faro, the outflow of water from the openings of containers, Riccati's differential equation, and the lunulae (figures bounded by two circular arcs). <br/><br/> "The discussions on Jacopo Riccati's differential equation were initiated in 1724 by the problem presented by Riccati in the Supplementa to the Acta eruditorum. ... Bernoulli demonstrated that Riccati's special differential equation <i>ax<sup>n</sup> dx + u<sup>2</sup>dx = b du</i> could be integrated through separation of the variables for the values <i>n = -4c/2c ± 1</i>), where <i>c</i> takes on all integral values - positive, negative, and zero. ... In the first part of the Exercitationes..., dealing with faro, Bernoulli furnished data on recurrent series that later proved to have no practical application. ... [but] was evidence of his early interest in the work on the theory of probability done by his predecessors Montmort and De Moivre, which had been nourished by discussions with his cousin Nikolaus I." (DSB).. 4to: 260 x 190 mm. Contemporary vellum. Provenance: Engraved book plate of George Frederick Nott (1767 - 1841) to front paste down. Pp. 96 and 1 engaved plate. Printed on thick paper. A very fine and clean copy

        Die Natürliche Philosophia, von Verwandelung der Metallen in Gold und Silber, durch das allerhöchste Geheimniß, welches genennet wird der lapis philosophorum.

      Mit gest. Frontisp. (in Pag.). 140 S. Moderne Lwd. 16,5 x 10 cm. Ferguson II, 561 Anm.; Caillet 11569; Brüning 3892. - Zweite deutsche Ausgabe (erstmals 1609). - Vgl. Duveen 631: "One of the very few alchemical books to which Brunet allows any commercial value." - Zacaire wurde 1510 in Guienne geboren. Nach einem ausgedehnten Studium alchemistischer Schriften gelang ihm 1550 zumindest seine Transmutation: er heiratete. Dann begab er sich in Begleitung seiner Frau und eines Dieners auf Reisen. Kaum war er aber 1556 in Köln angelangt, wurde er von seinem Diener erwürgt. Dieser flüchtete mit Frau und Tinktur. Die Romanautoren machten um diese Vorlage natürlich keinen Bogen. - Nur leicht fleckig.
