(ciasc. con più figure) relative a farfalle e a falene, colorate a mano dallo stesso Albin e inc. in rame (su carta forte) da vari artisti (Van der Gucht, Hulett, Terasson e Albin) su disegni originali dell'autore. Ogni tav. è dedicata a un aristocratico (v. elenco dei sottoscrittori all'inizio) ed è ampiam. descritta a fronte.

Savant d'origine allemande, il vécut à Londres, où il publia un nombre important de dessins d'histoire naturelle, entre 1720 et 1740. Les ouvrages plus célèbres qu'il a illustrés d'après nature sont l'"Histoire naturelle des oiseaux" et l'"Histoire naturelle des insectes"?. Bell'esemplare.

        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.
