        De causa gravitatis physica generali disquisitio experimentalis. Quae praemium à Regia Scientiarum Academia promulgatum, retulit; anno 1728. Paris, Cl. Jombert, 1728

      First Edition of George Bernhard Bilfinger's De Causa gravitatis physica generali disquisitio experimentalis (On the General Physical Cause of Gravity) - a prize winning explanation of the cause of the weight of bodies designed to check Galileo's and Edme Mariotte's theories. In so doing, Bilfinger discusses the work of many important contemporary scientists. This work won the highest award in a contest sponsored by the Paris Academy (a contest in which Bernoulli was also a contestant). At once a physicist, a mathematician, an astronomer, a botanist, and a philosopher, Bilfinger was one of the most accomplished and versatile thinkers of his time and was appointed professor of experimental and theoretical physics at St. Petersburg by Peter the Great. Although he was the pupil, friend, and defender of Christian Wolff, Bilfinger concentrated his attention on the philosophy and mathematics of Gottfried Leibniz. Bilfinger's work was of great import to Kant. In 1725 and while at the Russian Academy at St. Petersburg, Bilfinger began to study "the vis viva-problem in natural philosophy. This was the question of whether there exists 'living forces' that govern bodily motion and possibly everything else, and how to prove their quantity advanced by Leibniz. (This quantity, "mass" times speed squared, would join science as kinetic energy, the space integral of force) (Florida Philosophical Review, Vol. III, Issue 1, Summer 2003, 16). Bilfinger first examined the problem in a treatise entitled On Forces , this being the work that so inspired Kant in Prussia 18 years later. Kant in fact stated that Bilfinger's approach informed his first book, Thoughts on the True Estimation of Living Forces (1747) and noted that he always used Bilfinger's research-rule: "Truth is to be found in the harmony of opposites.". CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. (10 x 7.75 inches, 250 x 194mm). [2], 1, [40 pages], [2]. 2 foldout copperplate engravings. Beautifully rebound by Jean-Paul Laurenchet at Ateliers Laurenchet in France in modern, marbled paper covered hardboard. Red morocco, gilt-lettered spine label. Pristine condition. Complete. Handsome wide margins. Minor age toning, very slightly darker at the outer edges of the pages. Because of the brightness of the scanner light this appears worse in the scans than it is to the naked eye. A very occasional age spot. Very good + condition by any measure.

      Testo francese. Opera completa in due volumi. Cm.15,9x10,2. Pg.192; 388. Legature in mz.pelle con piatti marmorizzati. Tasselli con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi a cinque nervature. Tagli spruzzati. Spellature alle coperte. Gradevoli cartigli incisi all'inizio dei due volumi. Timbri di antica proprietà. Rarissima prima edizione francese, in piccolo formato, di un testo classico pubblicato nel 1725. Come si evince dalla meticolosa scheda di Olivier Barbier ("Dictionnaire des Ouvrages anonymes"), la paternità dell'opera è attribuita a Francis Hutcheson, mentre autore della traduzione è probabilmente Marc - Antoine Eidous (1724 - 1790), forse con la collaborazione di Guillaume Laget. Francis Hutcheson (Drumalig, Irlanda del Nord, 1694 - 1746), discendente da una famiglia di presbiteriani scozzesi, fu docente di filosofia morale all'Università di Glasgow. Seguace di Locke e insegnante e predecessore di Adam Smith, è considerato il padre dell'illuminismo scozzese, applicando le tecniche matematiche allo studio dei problemi morali.

'sGravesande (1688 - 1742) a Dutch mathematician and philosopher, is described by the DSB as "the earliest influential exponent of Newtonian philosophy in continental Europe". He spent a year in London in 1715 having been sent there as part of a Dutch mission to congratulate George I on his accession and there he made contact with the English Newtonians Desaguliers and John Keill and met Newton himself. In 1717 he was appointed professor of mathematics and philosophy at Leiden and began to prepare his Introductio ad philosophiam Newtoniam which was first published in 1720 - 21. This important and popular work reached 24 editions by 1760. See Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, page 235: "It was a work which emphasised the experimental rather than the mathematical side of Newton's thought and as such must have introduced many throughout Europe to the basic principles of the new science." Babson, Catalogue of the Works of Isaac Newton, Nos 65 - 70 listing only later Latin and English editions (1728 onwards) of this work. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        The West Front of Cliefden House.

      Published by Colen Campbell, London 1725 - Engraved by Henry Hulsbergh. On laid paper. Two repaired tears in the bottom margin, well outside image. From Colen Campbell's "Vitruvius Britannicus, or the British Architect" Vitruvius Britannicus is one of the great eighteenth-century English architectural works. It illustrates, in a way, the social revolution that occured in the first half of the 18th century under the governance of Robert Walpole. Noble country estates as grand as any in continental Europe appeared throughout the land. These are buildings of Classical formality and grandeur, implying familial and imperial permanence, vast, symmetrical palaces that preside over their surroundings. Colen Campbell (1676-1729) was a descendant of the Campbells of Cawdor Castle in Scotland. As an architect, he favored the Palladian style and, through his own designs and with Vitruvius Britannicus , helped establish it as the dominant style in great buildings, both public and private, in England. Cliefden House near Maidenhead was at one time a residence of Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of George II, but outlived by his father. The building burnt down in 1795.

        German Calligraphic Manuscript

      1725. CALLIGRAPHY-GERMAN. German Calligraphic Manuscript. [28] pp. Consisting of original coloured German calligraphy on heavy fortified paper. Oblong 4to., 230 x 300 mm, bound in contemporary German decorative paper over boards. Preserved in yellow half-morocco box. Augsburg: ca. 1720-1730. |~||~||~||~||~| Exceptional Early Eighteenth-Century Calligraphic Manuscript from the Augsburg area in Southern Germany. The manuscript represents an abecedarium starting with a large letter "A" and passing in order through the alphabet to "Z" on page 25. The first page consists of a Dedication for this "Vorschrifft" in German gothic text written in red ink with black pen flourishes within a red and green rectangular border. It is surrounded by painted coloured tulips and poppies connected by a dark green spray vine. Each of the following 25 pages comprises a large calligraphic gothic initial in red, blue, yellow or green. The large initials are highlighted with further intricate black ink floral designs and painted wash of reds, blues, yellows, greens and heavy China black. The final two pages consist of various upper and lower case alphabets in cursive, and the facing page displays a calligraphic Roman alphabet above a flourished Gothic alphabet and a lower case Gothic alphabet. The text, which follows each letter, consists of moral sayings and religious prayers and precepts. The decorative calligraphy and the mis-en-page of the continuous alphabet is extremely attractive and artistic in presentation. There is some show-through from black ink and very minor soiling. The spine of the binding is frayed and the boards show signs of shelf wear.

        Paradise Regain'd: A Poem in Four Books to which is added Samson Agonistes

      London - J. Tonson, 1725 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A sixth edition of Milton's Paradise Regain'd: A Poem in Four Books in a contemporary calf binding. Paradise Regained is a poem by English poet John Milton, first published in 1671 by John Macock. The volume in which it appeared also contained the poet's closet drama Samson Agonistes. Paradise Regained is connected by name to his earlier and more famous epic poem Paradise Lost, with which it shares similar theological themes; indeed, its title, its use of blank verse, and its progression through Christian history recall the earlier work. However, this effort deals primarily with the temptation of Christ as recounted in the Gospel of Luke. It is generally thought that Samson Agonistes was begun around the same time as Paradise Regained but was completed after the larger work, possibly very close to the date of publishing, but there is no agreement on this. Illustrated with a frontispiece. Condition: In a contemporary calf binding with gilt borders. Externally generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Joints starting but firm. Internally generally firmly bound with generally clean pages, save for browning due to age. Overall: GOOD..

Seutter, Matthäus (The Elder): 1678?"1757, Seutter was an engraver, globe-maker and publisher. Born in Augsburg in 1685, the son of a goldsmith. Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg in 1697, apprenticed as an engraver to Johann Baptist Homann. in 1707 later he returned to Augsburg subsequently working in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in the city. He founded the Seutter publishing house and print shop in 1710, producing maps, atlases, and globes., which became a primary competitor to Homann. Very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and none of the necessary connections to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Therefore Seutter copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models (approximately 500 pieces). His "Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt' appeared in 1725 with 46 maps: the "Atlas Novus" various editions in 1728, 1730, 1736, 1742; the "Grosser Atlas" in 1734 with 131 maps, and the pocket atlas "Atlas minor in 1744 with 64 maps. After Matthäus Seutter died in 1757, his son, Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the business for five more years.

        Hispaniæ et Portugalliæ Regna

      Peter Schenck Junior, Amsterdam 1725 - Copper engraving with stunning period colour. Printed on fine laid paper. In excellent condition. An elegant map of Spain and Portugal by the celebrated cartographer Nicolaes Visscher. For nearly a century the Visscher family dominated Amsterdam's map trade. Claez Jansz Visscher (1587-1652) founded the business at the beginning of the seventeenth century, establishing the firm near the workshop of the great Dutch publisher Pieter van der Keere. At this time he produced a few separately issued maps but his first major atlas was completely comprised of maps printed from van der Keere's old plates. The business was continued by Visscher's son and grandson, Nicholaes Visscher I (1618-1679) and Nicholaes Visscher II (1649-1702). During their lifetimes they issued a great quanity of atlases, which they consistently updated and revised with the latest cartographic discoveries. Elizabeth Visscher, the widow of Nicholaes II, continued the business after her husband's death and published both an Atlas Minor and an Atlas Major in several revised editions. This is a very attractive and readable map of the Iberian Peninsula by Nicolaes Visscher. The cartouche shows the combined coat of arms representing one kingdom, as it was under Philip II (and his successors) until 1640, when Portugal broke away.

        The Whimsical Lovers: or, Cupid in Disguise. A Novel. By Mr. Symmons.

      London, printed for J. Crokatt, at the Golden-Key, near the Inner-Temple Gate, in Fleetstreet, 1725 - First edition. 8vo, pp. 61, [1, blank], [1, advt]; title, last leaf and a few others stained, advertisement leaf with repaired tear across one corner affecting ornamental border. A fair copy. Recent half-calf, marbled boards, green gilt-stamped morocco label along spine. OCLC locates three copies, at McMaster, Yale and Iowa; ESTC adds the British Library. The female hero of this early and under-researched novel is Miranda, who was admired by everyone for the perfect education she had enjoyed, her character and - of course - her beauty. The plot thickens as the unknown author proceeds to narrate that her father dies and in his will she is put under the guardianship of a friend, whose son, a bit of a shady character with a history of flings, she is supposed to marry. Although Miranda is female perfection personified he refuses to accept this proposal initially and puts her to a test . A short novel, well-written and with a story line suitable to provide a libretto for an 18th-century English opera, which apparently was not produced. This seems to be Mr Symmons’ only published work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Frankfurt am Main: Buggel und Seitz 1725.. Mit 1 gestochenen Frontispiz. 5 Bll., 665 [recte: 635] S., 12 Bll. Halblederband der Zeit. - Ohne die SS. 23-38. - Stellenweise gebräunt, die Seiten bis zum Buchblock beschnitten, insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar.. Fünfte Auflage des Werkes, erstmals 1709 erschienen; in allen Auflagen selten. Kompilation aus zahlreichen medizinischen und anderen Autoren, u. a. Paracelsus, Galen, Schenk, Aristoteles, Hippokrates, Euripides, Cornelius Celsus sowie Albertus Magnus und dessen gynäkologischen Abhandlungen. Mit einigen Kuriosa: Warum Gehängten Haare wachsen, warum der Christ keinen Heiden und der Heide keinen Christen liebt, warum Hunde heulen wenn ein Mensch in der Nähe stirbt, wie der Planet Jupiter beschaffen ist, Einflüsse der Planeten auf den Menschen, warum der Mensch zur Winterzeit einen schlechten Geruch hat, wie man mit einem Klistier Nahrung verabreichen kann u. v. a. - In welchem Maße der Ruhm des Dominikaners Albert des Grossen fortlebte, ergibt sich aus dem Umstand, daß Caspar Nigrinus (Pseudonym ?) in seinem vorliegenden Werkchen sich bemüßigt fühle, auf große Namen zurückzugreifen. Heute ist allerdings erwiesen, daß die Schrift "De secretis mulierum", die Nigrinus im Auge hatte, Albertus Magnus zu Unrecht unterschoben wurde. - Mit Paginierungsfehler: von Seite 552 springt die Zählung auf 583. - Vgl.
