        Al-'Ahd al-jadid li-rabbina Yasu' al-Masih [The New Testament of our Lord Jesus Christ].

      [London], Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, 1727.. 4to. (1), (2 blank), 460, (3) pp. With a fine calligraphic title-page after George Sale. Contemporary sprinkled blind-tooled calf, later spine-label.. The first Arabic New Testament published in England. Translated by the Syrian scholars Solomon Negri (or Sulayman al-Sadi) and, to a lesser extent, Carolus Dadichi, it was published for dissemination among Christians in the Middle East. George Sale, an Orientalist best known for his English translation of the Koran, was employed as corrector and designed the calligraphy for the title-page. Negri based his edition on the London polyglot Bible of 1657, but greatly improved the elegance of the Arabic. It is entirely set in William Caslon's famous Arabic, especially cut for the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge (SPCK), but later also supplied to both the Oxford and Cambridge University Presses. Caslon's Arabic was modelled on Robert Granjon's renowned Arabic type used by the Typographia Medicea, Rome, in the late 16th century. "This edition is very scarce, for though 10,000 copies were printed, none were sold in Europe, but only a few were sent as presents to some of the learned" (Michaelis). - With bookplate on pastedown ("Dampiere"). Binding restored, otherwise in very good condition. - Zenker p. 188, no. 1541. Darlow/Moule 1655. ESTC T153833. Cf. Michaelis, Introduction to the New Testament II, p. 93. Roper, Arabic Printing and Publishing in England Before 1820, p. 21. For Negri: Weston, "Negri, Solomon (bap. 1665, d. 1727)", in: ODNB (online ed.).

        Traites de l'existence et des attributs de Dieu ; des Devoirs de la Religion naturelle, et de la Verite de la Religion Chretienne. Traduits de l'Anglois par M. Ricotier. Seconde edition, revue, corrigee & augmentee sur la VIe edition angloise.

      Amsterdam, Jean Frederic Bernard, 1727-1728.. 3 volumes in-12, plein maroquin olive, dos lisses ornes de compartiments delimites par un jeu de filets droits, pointilles et ondules, petits fers speciaux repetes au centre, palettes en tete et pied, triple filets dores d'encadrement sur les plats avec fleurons d'angle, coupes guillochees, dentelle interieure, tranches dorees (rel.

Deuxieme edition de la traduction francaise, largement augmentee (la premiere en 2 volumes, chez le meme editeur, 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 materialisme de Hobbes et le pantheisme de Spinoza. " Il y fait usage d'une methode aussi proche de la methode mathematique que le permet le sujet. Il reprend le probleme des preuves de l'existence de Dieu, s'ecartant des preuves traditionnelles pour offrir 'un seul et meme argument dans une chaine de propositions' " (Francoise Armengaud). Rousseau rendit un vibrant hommage a S. Clarke dans sa 'Profession de foi du vicaire savoyard' et Voltaire, qui le rencontra, possedait un exemplaire de cet ouvrage dans sa bibliotheque. Philosophe et theologien anglais, disciple et ami de Newton, Samuel Clarke joua un role important dans la substitution de la physique newtonienne a la physique cartesienne au sein des universites anglaises. (Brunet II, 65 : " Excellent ouvrage "). De la bibliotheque du grand collectionneur irlandais Henry J. B. Clements, avec son etiquette ex-libris gravee a la devise 'Patriis Virtutibus'. Tres bel exemplaire dans une reliure de maroquin olive de Nicolas-Denis Derome dit "Derome jeune", le plus celebre representant de la dynastie des relieurs, avec sa petite etiquette imprimee: "Relie par Derome le Jeune rue St Jacques apres le college du Plessis... en 1785"..

        POEMS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS

      1727. Fine. BROOME, William. POEMS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS. London: Bernard Lintot, 1727. Octavo. xiii(3)248pp. First edition. Fine frontispiece portrait engraved by George Vertue. Three pages of publisher&#39;s ads. Broome, a country clergyman, contributed the notes to Pope&#39;s Iliad (1715-20), and wrote eight of the 24 Books of "Pope&#39;s" translation of the Odyssey, published in 1725-6, as well as the Notes. He felt he received insufficient credit or payment for his work, and Samuel Johnson (in Lives of the Poets) said there was "more than coldness" between him and Pope. Facing the first page of text here is Broome&#39;s rather caustic "Advertisement:" "The Author has not inserted into this Collection any part of his translation of the Odyssey, published by Mr. Pope: he thought it an Imposition on the Public to swell this volume with Verses taken from a Work that is in the hands of almost every Reader." Johnson quoted a comic verse current at the time: "Pope came off clean with Homer, but they say/ Broome went before and kindly swept the way." Pope lampooned Broome in The Dunciad and Bathos. Johnson called Broome an "excellent versifyer, his lines smooth and sonorous, his diction select and elegant," but admitted that he was not a great poet. Tipped-in on the flyleaf is a description of another copy of this edition from a Sotheby&#39;s catalogue of 1870, copied out in longhand.

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.

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&#39; 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). &#39;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.&#39;â&#128;&#148;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)..

      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. .

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)

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.

        A Treatise of the Laws of Natureto which is prefix'd an Introduction concerning the mistaken Notions which the Heathens had of the Deity, and the Defects in their Morality

      sp; -London - Phillips10 by 8; (xxvi)(clxviii)377pp., 167(xxiv)(xxviii)pp. 1727 - Richard Cumberland (1613-1781) was educated at Magdalene, Cambridge, where he attained a fellowship. During his time there, he also studied medicine before taking Holy Orders (having been approved by parliamentary 'triers'). He took a living in Bramptonin 1658 andconformed after the restoration of the monarchy. This dutiful service earned him a chaplaincy at the University as well as a further vicarge and rectorship. This work, his seminal one, was first published in Latin in 1671-72. This was the first English translation, appearing in 1727.

        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".
