Obra com 5 partes encadernadas em 3 volumes. In 4º (de 22x18 cm) com (xvi)-270-(xiv)-(viii)-279-(xxixx); (xii)-318-(xxiv); e (viii)-312-(xxxii)-(viii)-298-(xxx) pags. Encadernações da época inteiras de pele com rótulos vermelhos, nervos e ferros a ouro nas lombadas, cansadas e apresentando alguns picos de traça. Obra impressa a duas colunas, adornada com vinhetas decorativas, apresenta folhas de rosto próprias em cada uma das 5 partes, sendo a folha de rosto da primeira parte impressa a duas cores. Exemplar com leves manchas de acidulação natural do papel nas folhas de rosto e falta dos fólios Nn2 e Nn3 referentes às págs. 283 a 286. De acordo com a nossa apreciação estes dois fólios nunca estiveram presentes, tratando-se provávelmente de um erro original aquando da encadernação da obra, situação muito comum em obras desta época publicadas em muitos volumes. Apresenta ligeiro trabalho de traça em algumas das pastas sem afectar o papel à excepção de uma única galeria no volume 4 a qual na sua maior parte não afecta a mancha gráfica. Existe exemplar não colacionado na BNP/UCP, Lisboa. 5 volumes bound in three. In 4 (of 22x18 cm) with (xvi) -270 - (xiv) - (viii) -279 - (xxviii), (xii) -318 - (xxiv) and (viii) -312 - (xxxii) - (viii) -298 - (xxx) pags. Binding: Full contemporary calf, gilt at spine with red labels, slightly worn out and with traces of moth work. Copy with light foxing. 2 folium?s missing on the 5th volume namely folium Nn2 and Nn3 concerning pages 283 to 286. As far as we can tell the folium?s were never there. They haven?t been torn out or severed, being probably one of those binding defects, quite common at that time, in works of many volumes and many pages. Also there are some slight marks of moth work in some of the folders without affecting the paper, with a single gallery needle type on ?pars quarta?, mostly without even crossing text area. Work printed in two columns, adorned with decorative vignettes, presents own frontispiece for each of the 5 parts, the one of the first part printed in two colors. There is one copy with no collation at UCP / BNP, Lisbon. Location/localizacao: 3-A4-C-24

        Des Capitains Lemuel Gulliver ReisenÖ

      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. A fine early Gulliver compendium, containing the first German edition of Swift's Gulliver, Desfontaines' "sequel", and the spurious continuation first published in London in 1727.Due to the enormous popularity of Gulliver'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's original, as well as two of the better works inspired by Swift, notably the genuine first German translation of Desfontaines' sequel, probably written in late 1730 and published in early 1731, thus predating another edition printed in Hamburg. Teerink confirms this edition's priority (and implies that he has not seen it) by reference to the translator's preface in the Hamburg edition, in which there is a dismissive reference to a poor earlier translation 'ausser Mesz-zeit, zu Berlin, Frankfurt, Leipzig und Altona'. 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 'careful study' of this work, it is most interesting for its appropriation of Vairasse' 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 'small degree of ingenuity'. It concludes with an explanatory key: a series of letters written by 'Herrn Carolini' 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.Teerink, 425 & 1238.

        A Treatise of Military Discipline; In Which Is Laid Down and Explained the Duty of the Officer and Soldier, Thro' the Several Branches of the Service

      London: Printed for Sam. Buckley, 1727. Second Edition. Leather Leather. Very Good. Second edition (published the same year as the first). [31], 364 pages, with seven large folding plates. Octavo. Perhaps the most popular military manual for British officers during the middle of the 18th century. It went through eleven editions between 1727 and 1762. George Washington is known to have recommended Bland to other officers (see letter of George Washington to Colonel William Woodford, November 10, 1775). 'By reading Bland, a colonial officer could gain a good introduction to the mechanics of soldiering as practiced in Western Europe in the first half of the 18th century. The treatise covers a variety of useful topics: infantry drill, firing, the formation of the battalion, defense of infantry against cavalry, rules for marching near the enemy [...etc.] Some orders require as many as 43 separate motions to execute; the order to prime and load a musket specifies 21 motions. There is little wonder that drill was at the heart of 17th- and 18th-century training.'—Armstrong Starkey, European and Native American Warfare, 1675-1815. ESTC 6389107. Contemporary paneled calf rebacked with a new spine of tan morocco with a red spine label titled in gilt. Minor wear to the corners, endpapers renewed, but a solid, attractive copy.

Hales applied his training in biology and mathematics (including physics) to make important scientific investigations presented in these separately published volumes. The first volume, Vegetable staticks, Hales describes his investigations of plant physiology, including the movement of water in plants and determining the three factors of water movement: root suction, root pressure and leaf suction. He also established that plants lose water continuously during transpiration through leaves. His quantitative measurements of these phenomena enabled him to show the rate of transpiration varied with temperature. Hales established that plants do not have true circulation system, and developed techniques of measuring the varying growth rates in different plant structures. -- The second volume, or Haemastaticks, &#39;contains the studies on blood pressure which make Hales one of the founders of modern experimental physiology. The application of the principle of the pressure-gauge or manometer enabled him to measure blood pressure during the contraction of the heart. He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today ... Hales&#39;s work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J.L.M. Poiseuille in 1828&#39; (PMM)..

To which is added Several Particulars relating to the Preservation of the Game; and stated Accounts of the Expence and Profits of Arable, Pasture, Meadow and Wood Lands

      Four folding engraved plates. Title printed in red & black. 2 p.l., xi, 372 pp., 2 leaves of ads. 8vo, cont. panelled calf (minor rubbing). London: J. Woodman & D. Lyon, 1727. First edition and a lovely copy. Bradley (1688-1732), first professor of botany at Cambridge, was one of the earliest British writers to treat agriculture as a science. His writings were prolific, including about twenty volumes dealing with agriculture. This book is one of his most important. "Cost of production was beginning to interest farmers more then it had done. For a hundred years the business had been steadily becoming more commercial. Instead of being rich because he grew a lot to eat, a man was beginning to find that he was only rich if he grew a lot to sell, and naturally he wanted to sell at a profit. To do that he must know what it cost him to grow the produce...and so writers began to insert costings in their books and Bradley was one of the earliest to do this. The Complete Body contains numerous costs, but I suspect they were of common knowledge rather than anything more immediately collected and closely scrutinized, yet they must have been accurate enough by the author&#39;s readers as not unreasonable."-Fussell, I, pp. 111-12. Fine crisp copy. &#10087; D.S.B., II, p. 390. .

      Scaphusii : John. Adami Ziegleri, 1727. Hardcover. Very Good. Very good+. Large 8vo. 1 p., [26] 984 [40] p. : plate. ; 22 cm. First Edition. Bound in contemporary leather.

Name in pen of Alan Hughes on FEP. Latin. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal toning. Please feel free to view our photographs. Wepfer is remembered for his work involving vascular anatomy of the brain, and the study of cerebrovascular disease. He was the first physician to hypothesize that the effects of a stroke were caused by bleeding in the brain. He also mentioned that these symptoms could be caused by a blockage of one of the main arteries that supply blood to the brain. From postmortem studies, he provided information on the carotid and vertebral arteries that supply the brain with blood. in 1658 he published a classic treatise on strokes, titled Historiae apoplecticorum. Wepfer made important contributions in the fields of experimental pharmacology and toxicology. He conducted experiments on the toxicity of water hemlock, hellebore, monkshood, and warned against the usage of arsenic, antimony, and mercury in medicine. In the fields of pharmacology/toxicology he published an influential work on water and poison hemlock called Cicutae aquaticae historia et noxae (1679)

Longman in Pater-noster-Row.. 1727.. 8vo: A^4 B - X^8 Y^4, 2A^8. 1st edition (Field 1045; Howes M-452; Landis 727/158; Sabin 47124). xxiv, 310, [2], 16 pp. Prince&#39;s account [pp 277 - 310] with a separate dated t.p., though pagination & registration continuous. 2 publisher sale lists comprise last 18 pages.. Period full brown leather binding.. Boards detached. Spine leather chipping. Paper toned, with some. staining throughout. Prior owner signature ["Davis Smith"] to front. paste-down. Ffep lacks upper corner. Title leaf with some minor. edge rash. A Good copy.. Experience Mayhew was the fourth generation of Mayhews who preached to the Indians of MarthaÕs Vineyard, his great-grandfather being Thomas Mayhew, to whom Sir Ferdinando Gorges granted the patent in 1641, along with Nantucket and the Elizabeth Islands. At the time of writing there were upwards of three thousand Òpraying IndiansÓ on the Vineyard and Nantucket. Field&#39;s comments on this work are interesting enough that we quote, in-full, his remarks: "In this extraordinary relation of the effects of the Gospel upon the aborigines, are narrated biographical sketches of one hundred and twenty-nine Indians, who gave unexceptional tokens of conversion by Christian lives. The humane labors of this noble missionary contrast so strikingly with the bloody massacre of the Cheyennes in 1863, by the forces under the Rev. Colonel Chivington at Sand Creek, that we cannot but wonder if their religion was the same. We are reminded, however, that Mr. MayhewÕs own sect instigated wars between the tribes of New England, in order to weaken their forces, slaughtered the entire adult members of some tribes, and sold their children into slavery in the West Indies." Key title documenting the early history of religious interaction between the Native Americans & the English ministry. Uncommon in the trade, last coming to auction in 1999, when then it fetched $3000.

        Traités de l'existence et des attributs de Dieu ; des Devoirs de la Religion naturelle, et de la Vérité de la Religion Chrétienne. Traduits de l'Anglois par M. Ricotier. Seconde édition, revue, corrigée & augmentée sur la VIe édition angloise.

      - Amsterdam, Jean Frédéric Bernard, 1727-1728. 3 volumes in-12, plein maroquin olive, dos lisses ornés de compartiments délimités par un jeu de filets droits, pointillés et ondulés, petits fers spéciaux répétés au centre, palettes en tête et pied, triple filets dorés d'encadrement sur les plats avec fleurons d'angle, coupes guillochées, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées (rel. Derôme jeune, 1785), xlv, (27), 332 p.; 288 p. et 294, (18) p., titres imprimés en rouge et noir. Deuxième édition de la traduction française, largement augmentée (la première en 2 volumes, chez le même éditeur, 1717). Le principal ouvrage de Samuel Clarke ('Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God '), dans la traduction du pasteur Pierre Ricotier. Clarke combat avec force le matérialisme de Hobbes et le panthéisme de Spinoza. « Il y fait usage d'une méthode aussi proche de la méthode mathématique que le permet le sujet. Il reprend le problème des preuves de l'existence de Dieu, s'écartant des preuves traditionnelles pour offrir &#145;un seul et même argument dans une chaîne de propositions&#146; » (Françoise Armengaud). Rousseau rendit un vibrant hommage à S. Clarke dans sa &#145;Profession de foi du vicaire savoyard' et Voltaire, qui le rencontra, possédait un exemplaire de cet ouvrage dans sa bibliothèque. Philosophe et théologien anglais, disciple et ami de Newton, Samuel Clarke joua un rôle important dans la substitution de la physique newtonienne à la physique cartésienne au sein des universités anglaises. (Brunet II, 65 : « Excellent ouvrage »). De la bibliothèque du grand collectionneur irlandais Henry J. B. Clements, avec son étiquette ex-libris gravée à la devise 'Patriis Virtutibus'. Très bel exemplaire dans une reliure de maroquin olive de Nicolas-Denis Derôme dit "Derôme jeune", le plus célèbre représentant de la dynastie des relieurs, avec sa petite étiquette imprimée: "Relié par Derôme le Jeune rue St Jacques après le collège du Plessis. en 1785".

      London: Printed for J. Roberts, in Warwick-Lane; J. Stagg, in Westminster Hall; and D. Browne, without Temple-Bar. 1727. [Price 2s 6d], 1727. Quarter-bound Leather. Very Good+. Fourth Edition (a reissue, with altered title page, of sheets from the third edition). 4to; 80pp, with a magnificent folding copper-engraved frontispiece, "Procession of Kings and Queens with over 150 robed figures," measuring a full 44 cm x 35 cm; a second folding engraving, "The Manner of the Champions, performing the Ceremony of ye Challenge," measuring 17 cm x 19 cm; and 12 woodcuts in the text depicting various ceremonial objects, including crowns, maces, scepters, and coronation rings. Bound in early (possibly contemporary) quarter sheep with marbled boards, rubbed along the spine and corners, the red morocco lettering piece chipped but clearly legible; all edges marbled. Provenance: bookplate of Buddle Atkinson to the front paste down. A sturdy, unsophisticated copy with boards firmly attached; frontispiece plate slightly foxed along the folds with several short edge tears, but otherwise clean and bright in a fine impression; sporadic light soiling and browning throughout. Full of fascinating information relating to the etiquette and procedure of royal ceremonies. ESTC Citation No. T116211. Rare. Buddle Atkinson&#39;s bookplate appears in Hugo&#39;s Catalogue of Thomas Bewick&#39;s works, but it is, in fact, engraved on steel, not wood, and came from the workshop of Mark Lambert, one of Bewick&#39;s pupils. The plate was designed and engraved by George F. Robinson, who joined Lambert&#39;s workshop in 1841 and who, in the course of 50 years, became chief engraver and director of all art works carried out by the firm. The plate was produced when Atkinson (b.1841) was a young child, perhaps for putting in books that had been owned by his father, John Buddle, so it likely dates from 1845-1850.

        De Legibus Hebraeorum Ritualibus et Earum Rationibus, Libri Quatuor

      Canterbury - C. Crownfield, E. Jeffrey and W. Thurlbourn, 1727 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A two volume revised edition of De Legibus Hebraeorum by John Spencer, edited by Leonard Chappelow. A good wide margined clean copy needing a little remedial work now to the original high quality binding. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and blindstamped decoration. Two volumes, complete. John Spencer, 1630 1693 , was an English clergyman and scholar, Master of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. An erudite theologian and Hebraist, he is now remembered as the author of De Legibus Hebraeorum, a pioneer work of comparative religion, advancing the controversial thesis that Judaism was not the earliest of mankinds religions. He was educated at the Kings School, Canterbury, and Corpus Christi, Cambridge. He graduated B. A. in 1648, M. A. in 1652, B. D. in 1659, and D. D. in 1665. He was chosen a fellow of his college about 1655. After taking holy orders he became a university preacher. In 1667 he was unanimously elected master of Corpus Christi College, a post he held for twenty-six years. He was admitted, on the presentation of the king, to the archdeaconry of Sudbury in the church of Norwich in 1677; and was instituted to the deanery of Ely in 1677. Benefaction and writing characterized the last decade of Spencer&#39;s life. In 16835 he issued at Cambridge the first edition of his great work De legibus Hebraeorum ritualibus et earum rationibus, comprising three books on the ritual laws of the Hebrews, and the reasons for them. In this work Spencer derived nearly all his data from classical writers of Greece and Rome, from the Christian Fathers, the works of Josephus, or from the Bible itself. (DNB)Leonard Chappelow, 1683 1768, was an English clergyman and orientalist. He was Sir Thomas Adams&#39;s Professor of Arabic at the University of Cambridge, from 1720, for life, and also Lord Almoner&#39;s Professorship of Arabic. Chappelow matriculated as a sizar at St John&#39;s College, Cambridge in 1709. After graduating M. A. in 1716, he was a Fellow from 1717 to 1731. Chappelow was ordained in 1716. His first publication, in 1727, was a new edition of John Spencer&#39;s De legibus Hebraeorum ritualibus, which he annotated and supplied with an index. (DNB)Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The boards are held by the cords only, and could possibly detach during transit, even after careful packaging. There is wear to the extremities including bumping and rubbing, with slight loss to the leather. Internally the pages have very slight browning to the page edges, with the occasional spot, most prominent to the first and last few pages. Thereare nameplatesand institutional ink stampson the front pastedowns, and ink inscriptions on the front pastedown of volume 1. There is an ink signature on the title page of volume 1 and the half title of volume 2. Overall the condition is very good..

        Consiliorum medicorum liber unicus. Ex Bibliotheca Jo. Jacobi Strasskirchneri.

      Frankfurt und Leipzig, C. C. Immig, 1727. - Gestochene Titelvignette, 3 gefaltete Tabellen, (3 Bl.), 466 (recte 464) S., (5 Bl.) 4°. Pergamentband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel Laehr, Die Literatur der Psychiatrie, Neurologie und Psychologie II, 217-219; Blake 68; vgl. Hirsch/H. I, 738 (zum Verfasser); nicht bei Kreuter, Wellcome, Waller und Osler. - Außerordentlich seltenes Werk, von dem wir einzeln seit 1950 nur ein Exemplar im Handel nachweisen konnten. Das bereits 1617 posthum erschienene Werk wurde offenbar nur in kleinster Auflage publiziert und ist wegen seiner umfangreichen Kapitel über Melancholie und Epilepsie interessant. Nicht in den großen Medizinsammlungen und mit Ausnahme von Laehr auch der Fachgeschichtsschreibung weitgehend unbekannt, daher konnten wir zur Rezeptionsgeschichte nichts weiteres ermitteln. Das Todesjahr des Verfassers gibt Dunckel - abweichend von Hirsch/H. und Jöcher - in Band I seiner "Historisch-kritischen Nachrichten von verstorbenen Gelehrten" mit 1610 statt 1604 an. - Brunner, 1540 in Halle geboren, studierte in Erfurt, war kurze Zeit Professor in Leipzig, unternahm dann längere Reisen durch Spanien, Frankreich, England, Belgien und die Schweiz, war Famulus bei Crato von Krafftheim (dessen Gesamtausgabe wir anbieten), dann angesehener Arzt in seiner Heimat, zuletzt Leibarzt der Anhaltinischen Fürsten. Schmieder in seiner Geschichte der Alchemie (S. 320/321) und Jöcher im Allgemeinen Gelehrten-Lexicon I, 1426 heben das Interesse des Verfassers an der Alchemie hervor, der den Stein der Weisen gesucht habe, 20 Jahre chemische Versuche dazu in seinem Laboratorium in Halle unternahm und 16000 Gulden dafür aufgewendet hatte. "Unter dem lateinischen Namen und mit einem fingierten Vornamen, wurden nach seinem Tode einige Aufsätze von ihm gedruckt, unter dem Titel: Johannis de Fontina, Vier nützliche chymische Tractat, Halle 1612" (Schmieder). - Ungewöhnlich schönes, nahezu fleckfreies Exemplar.

The author, Michael Heberer (1560-1623/33?), has been called der pfälzishe Robinson, or Robinson Crusoe of the Palatinate, because of his unlucky sea voyages recounted here. The engraved map shows Heberer&#39;s route around the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea. The other engravings depict a ship wreck, prisoners of the moors, the freeing of some prisoners in Alexandria, and the execution of others.

        Bibliotheca Menckeniana, quae Autores praecipue Veteres Graecos et Lat. Historiae item Literariae, Eccl. et Civilis, Antiquitatum ac Rei Nummariae scriptores, Philologos, Oratores, Poetas et Codices MSS. complectitur

      Engraved frontis. port. of J.B. Mencke. Title printed in red & black. 8 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 876 pp., [82] leaves. Thick 8vo, orig. limp boards (occasional minor foxing), uncut. Leipzig, J.F. Gleditsch & Son, 1727. Second edition, much enlarged (1st ed.: 1723) and a very lovely copy in original state; this was a very influential catalogue and was considered in its time to be the model of a universal bibliography. The Menckeniana is a catalogue of a specialized library particularly interesting to students of history and the history of learning. It was open to the public. The library was created by Otto Mencke (1644-1707), professor of moral philosophy at Leipzig University and founder of the Acta Eruditorum, the first great German scholarly journal. Mencke bequeathed the library to his son Johann Burckhard (1674-1732), professor of history at the same institution. The first edition of the Menckeniana was exhausted in two years, suggesting how important the catalogue was considered by other scholars. In the Preface to the second and larger edition of 1727 Mencken writes about serving scholars and complains about the difficulty of recovering books that had been lent. There is no suggestion at the time that he contemplated the sale of his library, but within a year he issued small priced catalogues and within five years he had disposed of his books. As we can see, an owner&#39;s catalogue can be an incidental means of selling a library. The largest part of the library was purchased in 1730 by Bünau and the remainder was auctioned in 1732. The catalogue contains one of the earliest instances of a frontispiece portrait in a library catalogue. The final leaves contain an author index, one of the earliest examples found in a private library catalogue. A very fine copy in original state. &#10087; Folter 528.

        Recentissima Novi Orbis Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meriodionalis Tabula

      Amsterdam: R. & I. Ottens, [circa 1727]. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring. 21 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches. A lovely copy of a scarce issue of this map of North and South America, here with beautiful period hand colouring. Burden lists the present map under Danckerts, who had re- engraved a close copy of De Wit&#39;s circa 1675 map of North and South America. Danckert&#39;s re-engraved version removes De Wit&#39;s dedication cartouche in the upper left, allowing for a more visible and detailed mapping of Terra Esonis and a portion of Japan. In the South Pacific, New Guinea and the Solomon Islands have been added. The present copy is an example of Burden&#39;s third state, with nomenclature on Terra Esonis and with Otten&#39;s imprint added. Interestingly, besides adding his own imprint, Ottens has removed Danckerts name and replaced it with De Wit. Burden cites a Covens and Mortier catalogue criticizing the Ottens for falsely crediting De Wit in an attempt to better market the map (De Wit apparently being more respected than Danckerts). In sum, this map is by the Ottens brothers falsely crediting De Wit to mask the fact that the map was a reprinting of a map by Danckerts, who had in turn appropriated De Wit by re-engraving his map!
