CASTEL (Louis-Bertrand).
A Paris, chez André Cailleau, 1724. 2 volumes in-12. 3ff. 621pp. 1f. + 1f. 619pp. Plein veau, dos à nerfs ornés, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin havane, tranches peintes (reliure de l'époque, charnières fendillées, petits accrocs aux coiffes). Edition Originale. Le jésuite et mathématicien Louis Bertrand Castel (1688-1757), qui s'est surtout fait connaître par ses travaux en optique et son fameux "clavecin oculaire", fut aussi l'un des premiers détracteurs français de Newton. Cet ouvrage rare, qui est sa première publication, "expose son système de la pesanteur, système dans lequel tout dépend de deux principes: la gravité des corps, qui les fait tendre sans cesse au repos, et l'action des esprits, qui rétablit sans cesse les mouvements" (Larousse, qui remarque que les ouvrages de l'auteur sont remplis d'idées "quelquefois bizarres, mais souvent profondes et originales"). Intéressante note manuscrite à la page 439 du second volume: "Ce n'est point du feu absorbé que le plomb calciné doit son excès de pesanteur sur le plomb naturel; voyez le détail des découvertes de la nouvelle chymie pneumatique et celles de Lavoisier sur la décomposition de l'air et la chymie de Fourcroy". On sait que l'augmentation de poids du plomb calciné, remarquée dès 1630 par Jean Rey, fut le premier indice de l'existence de l'oxygène démontrée en 1789 par Lavoisier. Traces de manipulation. Bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In-4° (27 x 21), pp. (20)+552, con una inc. su rame al frontespizio, due testate incise e 268 inc. su rame nel testo a mezza pagina, per lo più firmate "Duflos f.", raffiguranti scene dell'antico e nuovo Testamento; numerose iniziali in rame. Leg. piena pelle coeva, dorso a 5 nervi con ricchi fregi e titoli in oro. Qualche traccia d'uso, marginale, ma buon es. (6813) Nota opera che per la parte testuale sembra essere piuttosto di Nicolas Fontaine, pur rifacendosi alla traduzione della Bibbia di Le Maistre de Sacy, al cui nome viene convenzionalmente attribuita. Essa costituisce un ricchissimo repertorio iconografico di tutta la storia biblica, apparso per la prima volta nel 1670, alla cui illustrazione concorse in prima edizione anche Sebastien Le Clerc. Nelle sue varie edizioni fu fonte di ispirazione per innumerevoli artisti e illustratori e per tutto il campo delle arti figurative, tra la fine del XVII e l'inizio del XVIII sec., nel periodo del tardo barocco; le incisioni del ns. es. sono fresche e ben inchiostrate. Claude Duflos (1665-1737), fu assai attivo a Parigi come incisore nella produzione di soggetti sacri e profani. Le Blanc, II/150-2. Brunet, IV/1433.
