        A Description of the English Province of Carolana. By the Spaniards call'd Florida, and by the French, La Louisiane . With a large and curious Preface, demonstrating the Right of the English to that Country, and the unjust Manner of the French usurping of it

      for Edward Symon, London 1727 - 8vo. [54], 122pp. Folding copper-engraved "Map of Carolana and of the River Meschacebe" [i.e. Mississippi] (map linen-backed at an early date). Later smooth tan calf by W. Pratt, covers with a gilt double filet border, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red morocco lettering pieces in the second and third compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edge The first edition, third issue of this rare and highly important work, with the map which includes the first English depiction of the Mississippi Valley. With the exception of the title, this third issue is identical to the first published in 1722. According to William S. Coker, in his introduction to the 1976 University of Florida facsimile of the first edition, the three subsequent "editions" were in fact re-issues of the unsold sheets of the first edition with new updated title pages inserted. This is one of the first English works to describe the Southeast in any detail. Colonel Coxe laid claim to an enormous amount of land in the South thanks to grants made to his father Dr. Daniel Coxe by King Charles II. Coxe published the present work to further his families claims, but also to raise awareness of the huge potential of the area and the dangers posed by French incursions. He did not limit himself to the Carolinas, discussing the lower Mississippi in detail as well. Florida, Georgia and Louisiana are also described. Much of the information, gathered from British hunters and explorers, is published here for the first time. The work is also credited with being the first published proposal of a political confederation of the North American colonies. The map, which is often missing, is a particularly fine copy: it is of real importance. Drawn up by the Coxe family to illustrate their claims, it is also the first English depiction of the Mississippi valley. It also improved on all previous maps by eliminating the mountain ranges that were often shown as running beside the Mississippi River, as well as correctly fixing the location of the Appalachian and Ozark mountains. It extends as far north as the Great Lakes and includes an inset of the Mississippi Delta at the lower right "A Map of the Mouth of the River Meschacebe". Church 886; Clark I:68; cf.

        Schat-kamer ofte konst der stier-lieden, ...Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1702. With woodcut illustration of a ship's pilot with a plumb line and navigational instruments by Adriaan Le Duc (1693-1729) on title-page, 4 engraved plates (3 folding and 1 full-page). Further with many woodcut illustrations (mostly diagrams), and letterpress tables of tides and solar and lunar positions. Including: (2) VLACQ, Adriaen. De Tafelen der sinuum, tangentium en secantium, ofte der hoekmaten, raaklynen en snylynen. Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1702. Primarily with letterpress tables of logarithms and trigonometric functions, the present copy lacking those for logarithms. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. Contemporary vellum.

      Crone Library 373 & 374; cf. Bierens de Haan 5196 (1727 ed.); Cat. NHSM, p. 672 (1713 ed. plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone); STCN (1727 ed., plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone), WorldCat (1710 ed.). Very rare first edition of a standard practical manual on the art of navigation, by the virtually unknown Klaas de Vries, teacher of mathematics in Amsterdam. In the preface De Vries summarises the content of the book, which is profusely illustrated (mostly with diagrams) and includes letterpress tables of the tides, the time lag between the positions of the sun and moon for the years 1701-1710, the declination of the sun, etc., as well as 4 engraved plates of a compass rose, the use of the Jakob's staff, the "Platte Paskaart" and the "Wassende graadige paskaart". The work is concluded by sections on the winds one can encounter on the journey from Holland to the Dutch East Indies; how to sail to the East Indies in autumn, during monsoons, etc. Ad 2: The corrected Loots edition of tables of trigonometric functions and logarithms. The note to the reader explicitly states that the tables are based on those published by Adriaen Vlacq in 1665 (Tabulae sinuum ...), but that they have been corrected, in part based on comparisons with the folio editions of Pitiscus for the trigonometric functions and Henry Briggs for the logarithms. The present copy lacks the tables of logarithms, but its collation and signing otherwise agrees with the somewhat irregular ones given in Crone. Good copy, the Schat-kamer complete with the errata leaf. The Tafelen lacks the two tables of logarithms (45 leaves, 2A1-M1). Binding somewhat dirty and stained, with the head of the spine chipped and cracked.

        Theatrum Arithmetico-Geometricum, das ist: oder Schau-Platz der Rechen- und Mess-Kunst

      45 engraved plates. Title in red & black. 7 p.l., 200, [4] pp. Folio, speckled sheep (a few minor abrasions to binding), large Schönborn arms in gilt on covers, spine lettered in gilt, orange leather lettering piece on spine. Leipzig: published by the Author & J.F. Gleditsch & Son, 1727. First edition, and a very attractive copy, of the seventh volume of Leupold&#39;s Theatrum Machinarum, or "Theater of Machines"; this was the most complete and richly illustrated work on engineering and machinery published, not just up until that time, but for many years to follow. Complete sets of the nine works are of great rarity. The Theatrum Machinarum may be described as the first encyclopedia of technology. Not only was it easily the most richly illustrated book of its kind, with many thousands of figures on 530 plates, but with more than 2000 pages of German text it eclipsed all other works in the field. It describes not only the design and construction of the machines themselves, but also the mechanical principles by which they operated. Not only does the author describe the machines of his predecessors Francesco di Giorgio Martini, Strada, Zonca, Böckler, and Zeising, but Leupold also gives accounts of many of his own inventions. The present volume is concerned with calculating machines and measuring instruments. Of the former, he mentions those designed by Napier, Caspar Schott, Grillet, Giovanni Poleni, and Leibniz, as well as several of his own invention. One of the latter is described by Wolf, History of Science...in the Eighteenth Century, pp. 657-58 with two reproductions. Among the other instruments described are compasses of proportion and a rectangular instrument resembling the modern slide rule. Cajori, in his History of the Logarithmic Slide-Rule (1909), p. 41, draws attention to these passages and notes that before 1727 the slide rule was practically unknown in Germany. Leupold (1674-1727), a Leipzig mechanical engineer, established a workshop to manufacture mathematical and mechanical instruments. His numerous books describe the latest technological developments of the day. A very fine, tall, and handsome copy. Uncommon in such condition. &#10087; Tomash L81. .

        Les Voyages de Cyrus, avec un Discours sur la Mythologie

      Paris: Gabriel-Francois Quillau, 1727. Tow volumes bound in one, small octavo, small wormhole near the gutter of the opening pages but a very good copy in contemporary sprinkled calf, spine gilt. First edition of this influential description of an ideal kingdom, populated with figures from classical Greece. Ramsay was born in Ayr, Scotland in 1686, the son of a baker. As a young man he fought with the English in the war of the Spanish Succession, and while on the Continent sought to reconcile his religious qualms by journeying to see the renowned French divine, Fénelon. Deeply moved, he converted to Catholicism and remained with Fénelon until the mystic&#39;s death in 1715. Ramsay continued devoted, writing a life in 1723. He also became a tutor to the two sons of the Pretender, and continued to write philosophical tracts addressed to his pupils. The Voyages de Cyrus, his best known work, consciously imitates Fénelon&#39;s Adventures of Telemachus by integrating figures of classical Greek mythology into an ideal kingdom. Here, Cyrus journeys through the ancient world, continually appraising his own society. Although the work was widely reissued and enormously popular in the eighteenth century, it is not often discussed in the secondary works. Thus, Gove shows an awareness of the work and its debt to Fénelon, but contents himself with the grumpy assertion that it is merely an &#39;educational romance&#39;.

        Des Capitains Lemuel Gulliver Reisen... in unterschiedliche entfernte und unbekandte Länder. Erster Theil... [and] [ANONYMOUS]. Des Capitains Lemuel Gulliver Reisen in unterschiedliche entfernte und unbekandte Länder. Dritter und Letzter Theil... [and] [DESFONTAINES, Abbé Pierre François Guyot]. Der Neue Gulliver, oder die Reise Johann Gullivers, eines Sohns des Capitain Gullivers

      Berlin, Frankfurt, Leipzig & Altona: 1727-, 1731. Three volumes bound together in five volumes; the first work in two volumes with title-pages in black and red, three engraved maps and five plates; the second with two engravings; the third in two volumes; crude repair to second title-page of the third work; otherwise in very good condition in contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt spine showing some wear and cracking as expected in such a thick volume. Contemporary Gulliver assembly. A fine early Gulliver compendium, containing the first German edition of Swift&#39;s Gulliver, Desfontaines&#39; "sequel", and the spurious continuation first published in London in 1727. Due to the enormous popularity of Gulliver&#39;s Travels, there were a handful of contemporary works which claimed to be continuations or sequels. This volume, in a handsome contemporary binding, includes the first German edition of Swift&#39;s original, as well as two of the better works inspired by Swift, notably the genuine first German translation of Desfontaines&#39; sequel, probably written in late 1730 and published in early 1731, thus predating another edition printed in Hamburg. Teerink confirms this edition&#39;s priority (and implies that he has not seen it) by reference to the translator&#39;s preface in the Hamburg edition, in which there is a dismissive reference to a poor earlier translation &#39;ausser Mesz-zeit, zu Berlin, Frankfurt, Leipzig und Altona&#39;. CCuriously, the two parts of this work are inserted in the wrong order. The compendium also includes the first German edition of a continuation originally published in England in 1727. Although Gove makes the comment that he is unaware of any &#39;careful study&#39; of this work, it is most interesting for its appropriation of Vairasse&#39; land of the Sevarambes, a marvellous seventeenth-century imaginary voyage set in Terra Australis and based on some of the famous Dutch shipwrecks on the coast of west Australia; Gove comments that this new work displays some &#39;small degree of ingenuity&#39;. It concludes with an explanatory key: a series of letters written by &#39;Herrn Carolini&#39; a Venetian knight resident in London, to Swift. This unusual section seems also to be entirely fictional, the letters designed, it is claimed, to help make the zealous and careful reader more acquainted with the wonders of Gulliver and his voyage.

Mottled calf, gilt-ruled spine c. 1733, skillfully rebacked, label renewed. Together 2 volumes. Very good. Bookplate of distinguished British pathologist Alastair Robb-Smith (1908-2000) in <i>Statical Essays</i>.</p><p>First Editions. Hales initiated a new stage in physiological experimentation with his "statical" methods, which were characterized by precise quantitative measurements, repetition and the used of controls, and were based on the assumption that that the known laws of matter operated in the bodies of plants and animals as well as in non-living materials. In his investigations of plant physiology, described in Vegetable Staticks, Hales studied the movement of water in plants, determining that leaf suction is the main force by which water is raised through a plant, and showing that plants lose water constantly via transpiration through their leaves. He also demonstrated that plants do not have a true circulation, and developed techniques to measure the varying rates of growth in different plant structures.</p><p><i>Vegetable Staticks</i> is the first volume of Hales&#39;s <i>Statical Essays</i>, the second volume of which (<i>Haemastaticks</i>) appeared in 1733. <i>Haemastaticks</i>, which was published to accompany the second edition of Hales&#39; Vegetable Staticks, records "Hales&#39; invention of the manometer, with which he was the first to measure blood-pressure. His work is the greatest single contribution to our knowledge of the vascular system after Harvey, and led to the development of the blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use" (Garrison-Morton 765).</p><p>In the course of his work Hales indirectly discovered vasodilatation and vasoconstriction. Concluding that the force of the arterial blood in the capillaries could not be sufficient to produce muscular motion, he suggested a force regulated by the nerves, and perhaps electrical. "Hales was therefore the first physiologist to suggest, with some evidence to support it, the role of electricity in neuromuscular phenomena" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).</p><p>The title <i>Statical Essays</i> does not appear in the first edition of <i>Vegetable Staticks</i>; it was first applied to the whole work on the publication of the second edition (1731).

"There was a great deal of discussion in the scientific community about this work." (DSB V, 61)

        THE HERMIT: or, the unparalleled sufferings, and surprizing adventures, of Philip Quarll, and Englishman: who was discovered by Mr. Dorrington, a Bristol merchant, upon an uninhabited island, in the South-Sea; where he lived above fifty years, without any human assistance. Containing I. His Conference with those who found him out; to whom he recites the most material circumstances of his life; as, that he was born in the parish of St. Giles, educated by the charitable contribution of a lady, and put 'prentice to a locksmith. II. How he left his master, and took up with a notorious house-breaker, who was hanged; how, after his escape, he went to sea a cabin-boy, married a famous whore, listed himself a common soldier, turned a singing-master, and married three wives, for which he was tried and condemned, at the Baily. III. How he was pardoned by K. Charles II. turned merchant, and was shipwrecked on a desolate island on the coast of Mexico. With a curious frontispiece. The Fifth Edition.

      272 pages. Engraved frontispiece. Contemporary full sheep, paneled spine with red title label. 12mo. Binding worn and cracked at joints; frontispiece off-set to title; date and cost of book [2d] on endpaper. A very good copy. The Hermit, or The English Hermit, as it was more correctly known, was a highly popular work of fiction throughout the 18th and early nineteenth century, rivaling the popularity of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, with which it has much in common. While searching for food on a seemingly uninhabited island Edward Dorrington and his crew stumble upon a settlement. They soon discover that the buildings and everything in them belong to a single man who has been living on the island alone, but for the company of a succession of monkeys, for more than fifty years. Dorrington offers to rescue the man from the island, but the hermit declines, and offers the group a fine dinner while he recounts the tale of his adventure-filled life. The book was first published in 1727, but nothing is known of the author.

Mottled calf, gilt-ruled spine c. 1733, skillfully rebacked, label renewed. Together 2 volumes. Very good. Bookplate of distinguished British pathologist Alastair Robb-Smith (1908-2000) in Statical Essays.First Editions. Hales initiated a new stage in physiological experimentation with his "statical" methods, which were characterized by precise quantitative measurements, repetition and the used of controls, and were based on the assumption that that the known laws of matter operated in the bodies of plants and animals as well as in non-living materials. In his investigations of plant physiology, described in Vegetable Staticks, Hales studied the movement of water in plants, determining that leaf suction is the main force by which water is raised through a plant, and showing that plants lose water constantly via transpiration through their leaves. He also demonstrated that plants do not have a true circulation, and developed techniques to measure the varying rates of growth in different plant structures.Vegetable Staticks is the first volume of Hales's Statical Essays, the second volume of which (Haemastaticks) appeared in 1733. Haemastaticks, which was published to accompany the second edition of Hales' Vegetable Staticks, records "Hales' invention of the manometer, with which he was the first to measure blood-pressure. His work is the greatest single contribution to our knowledge of the vascular system after Harvey, and led to the development of the blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use" (Garrison-Morton 765).In the course of his work Hales indirectly discovered vasodilatation and vasoconstriction. Concluding that the force of the arterial blood in the capillaries could not be sufficient to produce muscular motion, he suggested a force regulated by the nerves, and perhaps electrical. "Hales was therefore the first physiologist to suggest, with some evidence to support it, the role of electricity in neuromuscular phenomena" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).The title Statical Essays does not appear in the first edition of Vegetable Staticks; it was first applied to the whole work on the publication of the second edition (1731).

        Jesu Christi Heilsame Versohnung Fur Die Sundigen Menschen

      Berlegis Johann Heinrich Russworm, Stockholm Und Leipzig 1727 - Jesus Christ's Wholesome Reconciliation for Sinful Mankind. Sermons by a popular preacher at the time, though I have found out very little about him. This is a remarkable and very rare book, consisting of 3 large parts, paginated separately; 660 + 535 + 416 pp. + an index for all 3 parts which is 50 or more pp. long. All are bound together in a massive tome of unadorned vellum, in good-only condition; the front board is warping, beginning to split at the bottom near the spine; vellum soiled, and the page edges have turned very dark. May have been rebound some time long ago; the endpapers are thicker than the text pages, though they are laid paper; and the headbands are remarkably whole and unworn. The binding is quite tight. Front pastedown is marred with a few odd, probably recent stains. Text pages are darkened to a deep cream but are free of foxing and quite legible if you can read the German Fraktur typeface. Has a frontispiece portrait, probably of the author, with a caption in Latin. Title page in red and black, and has a complex woodcut vignette which I think is a publisher's device.

Le interessantissime tavole sono quasi tutte più volte ripieg. e includono una grande carta geografica del Giappone e piante di città (Nagasaki, Jedo, ecc.). Questa importante storia del Giappone ?gives an account of the ancient and present State and Government of that Empire; of its temples, palaces, castles and other buildings; of its metals, minerals, trees, plants, animals, birds and fishes; of the chronology and succession of the emperors, ecclesiastical and secular; of the original descent, religions, customs, and manufactures of the natives, and of their trade and commerce with the Dutch and Chinese. Together with a description of the kingdom of Siam. "Prima edizione" di estrema rarità. Cfr. Cordier ?Japonica?, pp. 414 - 15 - Brunet,III,638: ?cet ouvrage est très estimé, et les exemplaires n?en sont pas communs? - Nissen ?BBI?, p. 94 - Wellcome,III, 376. Engelbert Kaempfer (1651 - 1716), naturalista, medico e grande viaggiatore tedesco trascorse 10 anni (1683 - 1693) in Asia sud Orientale. Nel 1690 fu nominato medico della Compagnia olandese delle Indie con sede a Nagasaki, dove rimase per due anni, 1690 - 92. Le sue escursioni all?interno posero le basi per la realizzazione delle più accurate carte geografiche del paese. Il resoconto illustrato dei suoi viaggi e delle sue osservazioni sono considerati il primo erudito studio sul Giappone del XVII secolo, fatto da un occidentale, uno studio che grandemente influenzò la considerazione del Giappone da parte degli Europei per tutto il diciottesimo e diciannovesimo secolo e l?opera di Kaempfer è senza dubbio la fonte più importante per gli storici sul periodo Tokugawa. Con la pubblicazione della sua ?History of Japan? nel 1727, Kaempfer fu immortalato quale primo ?interprete del Giappone?. La sua opera è considerata una enciclopedica e vastamente illustrata descrizione del paese, di Nagasaki, di due ambasciate a Edo e delle città visitate; vi figurano anche rapporti sull?agopuntura, sul te, la carta giapponese, sull?uso dell?oppio e della cannabis; di grande valore le sue osservazioni di botanica (molto apprezzate da Linneo che adottò la nomenclatura di Kaempfer). Kaempfer scrisse il suo monumentale lavoro in tedesco, sua lingua originale, ma fu pubblicato per la prima volta in inglese, in una traduzione del manoscritto autografo che era stato acquistato da Sir Hans Sloane (uno dei fondatori del British Museum). Solo 1 carta con strappo al marg. infer., altrimenti fresco e bell?esemplare. .
