      Augsburg 1725 - Delineata sulla scia della più grande veduta di Jeremias Wolff, l’opera offre quaranta riferimenti topografici. Il Leopold, era un modesto incisore ed editore di Augsburg; la sua serie di vedute di città, da cui questa incisione è tratta, venne pubblicata con pochissima tiratura, rendendo quindi le opere particolarmente rare. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. In the wake of Jeremias Wolff’s bigger view, this work presents many topographical references. Leopold was a modest engraver and publisher in Augsburg; the series of city views, from which this one is taken, has been published in a very limited circulation, which means these works are very rare.

        Carte de Territoire de Padouan, et le dogado de la Repub. De Venise

      Amsterdam 1725 - Carta geografica comprendente la provincia di Padova e Venezia, arricchita da tre cartigli in basso contenenti la pianta di Padova, il particolare della Laguna e del forte di Malamocco. La mappa deriva da quelle di Bartolomeo Clarici e di Giacomo Cantelli. Incisioni in rame, finemente colorate a mano in epoca, ampli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Rara La bottega di produzione, pubblicazione e vendita di materiale cartografico della famiglia fu fondata da Joachim Ottens (1663 – 1719), ma ebbe il periodo di maggiore sviluppo e produzione tra il 1720 ed il 1750 sotto la guida dei figli Reiner (1698 -1750) e Joshua (1704 – 1765). La produzione della bottega Ottens è enorme; include copie di praticamente tutte le mappe sino ad allora prodotte e disponibili, raggiungendo il numero di oltre 800 lastre, raccolte in 15 volumi di atlanti. Le carte sono caratterizzate dal fatto di essere finemente colorate a mano con colori accesi, mentre scarsa è la loro reperibilità sul mercato. The workshop founded by Joachim Ottens (1663 – 1719), lived its golden age between 1720 and 1750, directed by his sons Reiner (1698 -1750)and Joshua (1704 – 1765). The production of the workshop is massive; it includes also all the maps that ahd ever been realized until then, with 800 plates collected in 15 atlases. The maps are characterized by the fact that they are all hand coloured, but they are quire rare to be found. The following group is taken from the Atlas Maior, published around 1730. Copper engraving, fine contemporary hand colour, wide margins in excellent condition. Rare. Map depicting the territories of Padua and Venice, decorated with three cartouches on lower part with the city plan of Padua, a detail of the Lagoon and the fort of Malamocco. The map derives from those realized by Bartolomeo Clarici and by Giacomo Cantelli. Tooley p. 479. Dimensioni 450 390mm

        Opera Omnia Anatomica & Chirurgica.

      Leyden: apud Joannem Du Vivie and Joan & Herm Verbeek, 1725. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Large Folio. Large folio (462 x 287 mm). 2 parts bound in 2 volumes. Vol. I: [42], [1] 2-572 pp., with half-title, additional engraved title, letterpress titles printed in red & black, engraved title vignettes and woodcut initials, fine portrait of Vesalius, 67 plates numbered 1-67 (plate 43 within text) and several engraved text illustrations by Jan Wandelaar. Vol. II: [8], 577-684 [2], 685-1156, [52] pp., 15 engraved plates numbered 68-76, 76a-76c, 77-79, by Wandelaar, additional plate 76a a doublicate. Contemporary full vellum, all boards with central blind-stamped arabesque, ink-lettered spines with 7 raised bands (soiling to boards, bumping of corners, vellum of first vol. repaired at spine and joints), upper front boards inscribed in ink. Light browning and occasional minor spotting to text leaves throughout (stronger browning to pp. 1005-20), plates less browned and virually unspotted, light dampstains to upper- and inner margin of plate 67, small chipped tear at fore-margin of plate 74, marginal light dampstaining and short closed tear to lower margin of plate 77, foxing to pages 935-38. An outstanding copy in contemporary binding, complete with the 82 plates as called for. ----Norman 2143; Choulant-Frank, p.183; Cushing VI.-D.8; Waller 9917; Heirs of Hippocrates 287; Lindeboom 554. Hermann Boerhaave and Bernard Siegfried Albinus edited this work including an excellent biography of Vesalius and his work in the first volume. According to Heirs of Hippocrates, "this is the first collected edition of Vesalius' works. Although it is not complete, no expense was spared in producing the two-volume set, which contains superbly engraved copper plates by Jan Wandelaar. The editors, famous physicians in their own right, have done a magnificent job in clearly showing the astonishing achievements of Vesalius." "In this edition, the woodcuts of the principal work and of the 'Epitome' are very beautifully copied and engraved on copper in the original size ... The remaining wood engravings are copied entirely, with all the additions, from the edition of 1555" (Choulant). Boerhaave, an extremely influential teacher of medicine in 18th-century Leiden, was also interested in the synthesis of older and newer theories of medicine. In an effort to reconcile recent medical discoveries with those of previous centuries, he prepared new editions of a number of classic medical texts. Among these were the works of Vesalius, on which he worked in collaboration with his younger colleague, the anatomist Bernhard Siegfried Albinus. This collected edition includes, in Volume I, De humani corporis fabrica, and in Volume II, the Epitome, the China-root Letter, Vesalius' response to the Anatomical Observations of Gabriele Falloppio, and the Chirurgia magna attributed to the great anatomist. The care with which Vesalius' illustrations were reproduced indicates that they were regarded as still having scientific value almost two centuries after their first publication. Since the survival of the woodblocks was unknown to Boerhaave, the present edition is illustrated with engraved plates copied from the printed woodcuts by Jan Wandelaar, who was also responsible for the illustrations of Albinus' own anatomical atlases (Norman). This is a large-paper copy based on the fact that untrimmed copies of size 430 x 275 mm exist. Because of the large size of our copy, all plates are unfolded. Near Fine.

      - 1 p.l., 4, viii, 108, [2], slip of errata mounted on final blank leaf. 8vo, attractive antique panelled calf (some light foxing throughout), spine lettered in gilt. London: Printed by W.P. and sold by F. Fayram et al., 1725. First edition. Employing the mortality statistics gathered by Edmund Halley in the 1690s, de Moivre formulated the theory of annuities. "De Moivre's contribution to annuities lies not in his evaluation of the demographic facts then known but in his derivation of formulas for annuities based on a postulated law of mortality and constant rates of interest on money. Here one finds the treatment of joint annuities on several lives, the inheritance of annuities, problems about the fair division of the costs of a tontine, and other contracts in which both age and interest on capital are relevant. Ths mathematics became a standard part of all subsequent commercial applications in England."-D.S.B., IX, p. 454. Very good copy. ? Garrison-Morton 1690.

        Abbrégé de la nouvelle méthode dans l'art d'écrire ou de tracer toutes sortes de danses de ville. ... Ouvrage très utile pour toutes les personnes qui ont scu ou qui apprennenet à danser.

      Paris, Chez l'auteur, (1725). ____ Première édition. Ouvrage beaucoup plus rare que le "Maître à danser" du même auteur. Il est illustré par 155 planches de chorégraphie. Pierre Rameau (1674 -1748), était maître à danser "de la Maison de sa majesté catholique la Reine seconde douairière d'Espagne". La seconde partie contient "douze des plus belles danses de Monsieur Pecour [Guillaume Louis Pécourt] compositeur des ballets de l'Académie Royale de Musique et remis en chorégraphie suivant la nouvelle correction et augmentation du Sr. Rameau". "Paru 25 ans après celui de Feuillet sur la chorégraphie, ce livre est conçu dans un style qui témoigne des progrès réalisés dans ce court espace de temps par les professeurs. On trouve autant d'ingéniosité que de clarté; une seule planche de traits graphiques peut initier le lecteur à toute la science chorégraphique en lui permettant de suivre pas à pas, et avec la cadence, les différents tracés des figurations de la danse. Cette planche constitue à elle seule l'alphabet de la grammaire chorégraphique." (G. Desrat, Dictionnaire de la danse.) Provenance : Guédon, (signature au contre-plat de la reliure). Peut-être Claude Guédon, haute-contre de la Musique de la Chambre du Roi à cette époque. Coiffes et coins restaurés, titre un peu sali. Bon exemplaire.***** First edition. A book much rarer than the famous "Maître à danser" by the same author. Illustrated by 155 plates of choreography. In-8.

        The Voiage and Travaile of Sir John Maundevile, Kt. Which Treateth of the Way to Hierusalem: and of Marvayles of Inde, with other Islands and Countryes.

      London, J. Woodman, D. Lyon & C. Davis, 1725. - 8vo. XVI, (8), 384, (8) pp. Title page printed in red and black. Contemporary calf with giltstamped cover fillets, rebacked to style with giltstamped red label, leading edges gilt. All edges sprinkled in red. Rare, reliable 18th-century English edition of the classic (though partly fictional) 14th-century account presented as voyages of Sir John Mandeville through Turkey, Egypt, Ethiopia, Syria, Persia, Arabia, India and the East Indies, published from a 15th-century manuscript in the Cottonian Library (MS Titus C XVI). "This is the completest edition up to date" (Cox). According to the story he set off on his travels in 1322 from Saint Albans in England, returned in 1343, wrote the present account in 1364 and died in 1371. It was originally written in French and is thought to have been compiled from various sources by Jehan d'Outremeuse (1338-1400) or Jean de Bourgoigne (d. 1372) of Liege. It includes many well-known stories and illustrations of monstrous people and animals in exotic lands. The book also includes genuine descriptions of the regions covered and gave many Europeans their first notions of the Near East, Middle East, India and East Indies. The part on Arabia includes an account of the birth of Muhammad (p. 169). - Occasional slight browning, but well-preserved. Provenance: Sold as a duplicate by the Bodleian Library (with the Radcliffe Infirmary's armorial bookplate and cancellation stamp); later in the collection of H. C. Gleave (his bookplate).

        Nouvelle mécanique ou statique, dont le projet fut donné en 1687. Ouvrage posthume de Pierre Varignon.

      Paris, Jombert, 1725. ____ Première édition. Pierre Varignon (1654-1722) publia en 1687 un "Projet d'une nouvelle méchanique". Il y annonce la règle de la composition des forces par le parallélogramme. "Cet ouvrage entièrement fondé sur la composition des mouvements, ne contenait de principes que ce qu'il en fallait à ceux qui possédaient déjà cette science. Aussi ne le rendait-il public que pour savoir le sentiment des géomètres sur ce nouveau système. Le jugement qu'ils ont portés, l'a engagé à en faire un Traité complet de mécanique, qui servit à apprendre cette science à fond. Il y travaillait encore lorsqu'il est mort. Il ne lui restait qu'à mettre dans l'ordre qui convenait à tout l'ouvrage, les problèmes qui en devaient en être la dernière partie. M. de Fontenelle à qui M. Varignon a légué ses papiers, a remis ce Traité à M. de Beaufort, de l'Académie des Sciences, qui s'est chargé du soin de l'édition avec l'abbé Camus." (avertissement de l'éditeur). En appendice de l'ouvrage on trouve une lettre adressée en 1717 à Varignon par Jean Bernoulli, contenant l'exposé complet du principe des déplacements virtuels. Illustré par 64 planches gravées dépliantes. (Quelques unes n'ont pas été reliées au bon endroit). Petit éclat à une coiffe. Bon exemplaire. Bibliotheca Mechanica p. 338. Dictionary of Scientific Biography 13, 585. ***** First edition. Varignon's major contributions to physics, a complete treatise on the foundations of mechanics. "Varignon deserves credit on two counts: for preparing the way for and eliciting Bernoulli's statement, and for attempting to provide the broadest justification of the principle. Thus the period between the 'Projet' of 1687 and the 'Nouvelle mécanique' witnessed the development of what appeared a century later to be the very foundation of classical mechanics." (DSB). 2 volumes in-4. Collation : (28), 387, (1) pp. / (4), 478, (2) pp., 64 planches h.-t. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        The Works of Shakespear. In Six Volumes.

      London: for Jacob Tonson [volume VII:] Printed by J. Darby, for A. Bettesworth, F. Fayram, W. Mears [and six others],, 1725. Collated and Corrected by the former Editions, By Mr. Pope. [Together with:] The Seventh Volume. Containing Venus and Adonis. Tarquin and Lucrece. And Mr. Shakespear's [sic] Miscellany Poems. To which is prefix'd, an essay on the art, rise, and progress of the stage, in Greece, Rome, and England. And a glossary of the old words us'd in these works. The whole revis'd and corrected, with a preface, by Dr. Sewell. 7 volumes, large quarto (286 x 223 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spines sometime neatly rebacked to style and incorporating the original red and pale brown morocco twin labels, gilt floriate roll tool border on sides, red "combed" marbled edges, marbled endpapers. First title printed in red and black, engraved head and tail-pieces, decorated initials. Bound without the engraved frontispiece portrait of Shakespeare, engraved plate of the Shakespeare monument (incorporating a portrait bust); scattered foxing and dust-marking, some general paper toning otherwise a very good set. First edition of Pope's Shakespeare, the first collected edition in quarto, only the second modern edition of Shakespeare, intended by Pope to remedy what he (though he had been Rowe's friend) perceived as the deficiencies of Rowe's 1709 edition. After the four Folios and two Rowe editions, this is the seventh edition overall. Pope had been working simultaneously on this and his celebrated translation of Homer, published the same year, for the past few years, and Tonson published them both in sumptuous quarto format, handsomely printed and decorated. Johnson states that Pope's remuneration for the Shakespeare was £217.12s, and that 750 copies were printed, although 140 were left unsold. (A supplementary volume with a preface by Dr. Sewell was added in 1725, but Pope had no part in it.) The first volume is dated 1725, the others 1723, suggesting that the first volume was printed last: certainly Tonson did not send Pope a proof of his Preface until 23 December 1724. Colin Franklin points out that Pope's was "the first Preface to an edition of Shakespeare" (Shakespeare Domesticated: The eighteenth-century editions, 1991, p. 62). Provenance: nineteenth century armorial bookplate of Sir John Bickerton Williams (1792?1855), nonconformist memorialist: "after the passing of the Municipal Corporations Act of 1835, Williams was elected an alderman of Shrewsbury, and in November 1836 became mayor, the first dissenter so appointed. In this capacity he presented an address to the duke of Sussex, and this introduction to the duke led to a friendship based on their mutual literary interests. To this friendship he owed the knighthood bestowed on 19 July 1837 by Queen Victoria, the first of her reign" (ODNB).

An important map of the East Indies with an inset of Buton, published to illustrate Renneville's 'Recueil des voiages qui ont servi à l'établissement & aux progrès de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales, formée dans les Provinces-Unies des Païs-Bas'. This was the first French translation of Isaac Commelin's account published in 1646. Commelin based his map on that of De Bry, 1619; this version still retains the two sea monsters.

      Paris, Chez l'auteur, (1725). ____ Première édition. Ouvrage beaucoup plus rare que le "Maître à danser" du même auteur. Il est illustré par 155 planches de chorégraphie. Pierre Rameau (1674 -1748), était maître à danser "de la Maison de sa majesté catholique la Reine seconde douairière d'Espagne". La seconde partie contient "douze des plus belles danses de Monsieur Pecour [Guillaume Louis Pécourt] compositeur des ballets de l'Académie Royale de Musique et remis en chorégraphie suivant la nouvelle correction et augmentation du Sr. Rameau". "Paru 25 ans après celui de Feuillet sur la chorégraphie, ce livre est conçu dans un style qui témoigne des progrès réalisés dans ce court espace de temps par les professeurs. On trouve autant d'ingéniosité que de clarté; une seule planche de traits graphiques peut initier le lecteur à toute la science chorégraphique en lui permettant de suivre pas à pas, et avec la cadence, les différents tracés des figurations de la danse. Cette planche constitue à elle seule l'alphabet de la grammaire chorégraphique." (G. Desrat, Dictionnaire de la danse.) Provenance : Guédon, (signature au contre-plat de la reliure). Peut-être Claude Guédon, haute-contre de la Musique de la Chambre du Roi à cette époque. Coiffes et coins restaurés, titre un peu sali. Bon exemplaire.***** First edition. A book much rarer than the famous "Maître à danser" by the same author. Illustrated by 155 plates of choreography. In-8. [196 x 126 mm] Collation : titre gravé, (8), 111, (2) pp. 64 planches / titre gravé, 91 planches Veau, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        Annuities upon Lives: or, The Valuation of Annuities upon any Number of Lives; as also, of Reversions. To which is added, An Appendix concerning the Expectations of Life, and Probabilities of Survivorship.

      First edition London: Printed by W.P. and sold by F. Fayram; Benj. Motte; and W. Pearson, 1725. A very nice copy of de Moivre's influential study of annuities based upon the mortality statistics gathered by Edmund Halley in the 1690s. "De Moivre's contribution to annuities lies not in his evaluation of the demographic facts then known but in his derivation of formulas for annuities based on a postulated law of mortality and constant rates of interest on money. Here one finds the treatment of joint annuities on several lives, the inheritance of annuities, problems about the fair division of the costs of a tontine, and other contracts in which both age and interest on capital are relevant. This mathematics became a standard part of all subsequent commercial applications in England" (DSB IX: 454). ?Norman 1530; Garrison-Morton 1690. "De Moivre's preoccupation with matters concerning the conduct of a capitalist society, such as interest, loans, mortgages, pensions, reversions or annuities, dated back at least to the 1690s, from which time a short note survives in Berlin containing his answers to a client's questions. In 1693, using the lists of births and deaths in Breslau for each of the years 1687 to 1691, Edmond Halley had published in the Philosophical Transactions a life table together with applications to annuities on lives, but the amount of calculation involved in extending this to two or more lives turned out to be immense. De Moivre replaced Halley's life table by a (piecewise) linear function, which allowed him to derive formulas for annuities of single lives and approximations for annuities of joint lives as a function of the corresponding annuities on single lives. He published these formulas, together with the solution of problems of reversionary annuities, annuities on successive lives, tontines, and other contracts that depend on interest and the 'probability of the duration of life', in his book Annuities upon Lives" (ODNB). A French Huguenot, Abraham de Moivre (1667-1754) was jailed as a Protestant upon the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. When he was released shortly thereafter, he fled to London. In London he became a close friend of Sir Isaac Newton and the astronomer Edmond Halley. De Moivre was elected to the Royal Society of London in 1697 and later to the Berlin and Paris academies. Despite his distinction as a mathematician, he never succeeded in securing a permanent position but eked out a precarious living by working as a tutor and a consultant on gambling and insurance. "In the Philosophical Transactions for 1711 de Moivre published a long article, 'De mensura sortis', which was followed by the Doctrine of Chances. The second, much extended, edition of the Doctrine (1738) contained his normal approximation to the binomial distribution that he had found in 1733. This special case of the central limit theorem he understood as a generalization and a sharpening of Bernoulli's Theorema aureum, which was later named the law of large numbers by Poisson. De Moivre's central limit theorem is considered as his greatest mathematical achievement and shows that he understood intuitively the importance of what was later called the standard deviation. Crucial to this theorem was a form of the so-called Stirling formula for n!, which de Moivre and Stirling had developed in competition which ended in 1730" (ibid.).

         Traité de la construction et des principaux usages des instrumens de mathématique avec les figures nécessaires... 3e édition.

      Paris, Brunet, Ganeau, Robustel, Osmont, 1725, in 4°, de 4ff. 431pp. 4ff., ill. d'un front. gravé et de 37 planches gravées h. t. d'instruments, pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, tr. rouges, qq. taches en marges sinon bel exemplaire qui contient un ajout manuscrit de l'époque in fine : "Manière de construire des cadrans à l'usage de la règle de gnomonique de Maulevaut, par deux ouvertures de compas" (2pp. avec figure) Jean Maulevaut avait un atelier d'instruments scientifiques quai de l'horloge du Palais à Paris jusqu'en 1720. (ex-libris gravé François Emmanuel Guignard comte de Saint-Priest, 1735-1821, Ambassadeur à Constantinople puis Ministre de l'Intérieur ). 3e édition de ce célèbre livre très rare en bel état. N. Bion était un des constructeurs d'instruments les plus célèbres de son époque. Il était réputé pour l'exceptionnelle qualité de ses instruments. L'ouvrage donne un tableau très complet des articles que pouvait proposer un atelier à sa clientèle au XVIIIe siècle. On y trouve la description de lunettes microscopiques, astronomiques, de micromètres qui y sont décrits sans grands détails car sans doute Bion évitait de donner trop de renseignements qui auraient permis à un amateur de faire exécuter ces instruments par un habile ouvrier. C'est à ce public d'amateurs que le livre est destiné et son succès correspond au goût de l'époque pour la mécanique, l'astronomie mais aussi aux besoins pratiques des arpenteurs, ingénieurs etc... L'ouvrage a connu de nombreuses éditions, mais la plupart des exemplaires sont en mauvais état. ¶ Daumas 109. - DSB II.132 "... a description rather complete of the articles which a workshop could offer to its customers ... illustrated by a beautiful engraved frontispice, (which is rare), a portrait and 37 folding engraved copper plates. They show all kinds of instruments, some manufactured by the author." - Tardy 35 - Polak p.842.

        Southeast Asia] Rare 1725 Map of East Indies and South East Asia

      RÃ ne Augustin Constantin De Renneville, Paris 1725 - This rare and wonderful map of Southeast Asia and the East Indies dates to 1725. Issued by RÃ ne Augustin Constantin De Renneville, the map extends from Pegu in modern day Myanmar (Burma) to New Guinnea and Timor and includes Java, Malay, Sumatra, Borneo, Indonesia, Philippines, and the Moluccas. Incredibly detailed with rhumb lines and beautifully rendered forest and mountains, the map notes numerous important cities, islands, straits, rivers, banks, and a host of additional topographic features.A large inset of Botton Island and the Strait of Botton is included in the top right. Pulau Buton, located just southeast of Sulawesi or the Celebes Island, is separated from Pulau Muna (Camboyna) by the Strait of Buton. Willem Cornelisz Schouten, wrote about the Buton Islands and Strait in his Journal, "Here is a map of the Molucca and Botton Isles, which I, Jean Cornelisz de Moye, have drawn with all possible accuracy, during the various voyages I have made there, over all in the Straits of Botton".Willem Cornelisz Schouten (c.1567 - 1625) was a Dutch navigator for the Dutch East India Company who sailed on the Jacob le Maire expedition in 1615 to search for the elusive Terra Australis and an alternate route to the Spice Islands. On his journey along the north coast of New Guinea, they explored several small islands, here identified as Willem Schoute Eylandt (Schouten Islands, named after him). Abel Tasman later used Schoten's charts during his explorations.This map appears in de Renneville''s "Recueil des Voyages qui ont servi a l'Etablissement et aux Progrez de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales," a French adaptation of Isaac Commelin''s compilation of mid-17th-century voyages and travels undertaken for the Dutch East India Company. In good condition. Minor wear along original folds. Minor offsetting, light damp stain, upper left margin trimmed close for binding purposes, repaired vertical tear along left margin, i.e. binding tab. RÃ ne Augustin Constantin De Renneville (1650 - 1723) was French writer from Caen, France best known for his translation of Isaac Commelin's Dutch travel account " Recueil des voyages qui ont servi a l'Etablissement de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales aux Provinces Unies". He is also known for his " Histoire de la Bastille". This is a good example of his work. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 12" x 16.5".
