        A View of Sir Isaac Newton's Philosophy

      London: S. Palmer. 1728. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. First printing, 1728. Large 4to, original leather boards, slightly amateurish new spine in lighter leather with raised bands, new endpapers, pp. (25), 407 (2), with 12 folding copperplates. About very good copy, very bright and wide margined; the recent leather spine is not unattractive; old boards a little worn and rubbed especially at corners, sporadic and modern marginal pencil marks and mild occasional underlining, also in pencil, folding plate facing p. 212 has two tears, one 2.5 inches, the other less than an inch; these had scotch tape on them which had not yet browned, but which we removed only semi-successfully, and we have closed those tears with wheat paste.

        The History of the Knights of Malta;

      London: For G. Strahan; F. Gyles; Mess. Woodman and Lyon; D. Browne; Mess. Groenewegen, Prevost, and Vanderhoeck; C. Davis; and T. Osborne,, 1728. illustrated With LXXI. Heads of the Grand Masters, &c. Engraved by the best Hands in France, from the Original Paintings, under the Inspection of Mons. Bologne, Director of the Royal Academy of Painting. With Maps by Mons. de Lille, and the Plans and Fortifications of Malta by the Chevalier de Tigné. And a compleat Index to the whole. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, Royal Folio copies, folio (455 × 289 mm) contemporary speckled calf, neatly rebacked to style, raised bands, red morocco lettering- and numbering pieces, single helical twist panel to the boards. Frontispiece portrait of Vertot engraved by Laurent Cars after J. Delijen and 70 other portraits engraved by Cars, folding general map engraved by Delahaye and three other folding maps by Delahaye and De Berey, one full-page plan. Boards somewhat pitted, carefully refurbished on the edges, endpapers renewed, some occasional light foxing, but overall a very good, and massive, copy, presenting well on the shelf. First edition in English, originally published in French in 1726. This one of only 25 Royal Folio copies printed, the largest paper edition (Lowndes p. 1864), measuring some 70 mm taller and 50 mm wider than the "ordinary" Large Paper copies, and a very heavy stock indeed. Commissioned by the Order themselves, Vertot's history remained the standard work for two centuries. The Abbé's "talent as an historian was more of a literary than of a critical character" (Catholic Encyclopaedia), which perhaps was fitting for the telling of a tale of such legendary scope and scale. The Order was founded in Jerusalem after the reconquest in 1099, forced from the Holy Land after the fall of Acre in 1291, they settled briefly on Cyprus before being gifted lands on Rhodes. They were expelled from there by Suleiman the Magnificent after a six month siege in 1522 , and after a short sojourn on Sicily, the Order was granted the islands of Malta and Gozo by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. In 1565 the Order organized the heroic resistance to the Siege of Malta, the island losing over a third of its population while withstanding a bombardment of nearly 150,000 cannon shots. Even if the Siege did little to alter the balance of power in the Mediterranean, it was the first true defeat of the Ottoman Empire in a century and lifted European morale immeasurably, and such was its resonance that two hundred years later Voltaire could remark; "Rien n'est plus connu que le siège de Malte." The text also includes Vertot's 'Discourse upon the Alcoran', originally given before L'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres in 1724, and his 'Dissertation on Zizim', a historiographical study of Cem Sultan's time on Rhodes.

      Cm. 28, pp. (8) 10, 202. Grande vignetta al frontespizio, antiporta figurata, grandi testate, finalini e 10 belle tavole fuori testo, il tutto inciso in rame da Cochin. Tardieu, Dupuis e altri. Legatura coeva in piena pelle marrone, dorso con titoli su tassello e fregi in oro. Piatti inquadrati da filetti a secco. Ex libris nobiliare. Dorso ben restaurato. Esemplare genuino e ben conservato, Edizione in cui appare per la prima volta il titolo ""La Henriade"", di molto corretta rispetto all'originale del 1723 il quale portava il titolo: La ligue ou Henry Le Grand..."". Si tratta inoltre della prima edizione figurata. Esemplare che contiene le pagine con l'elenco dei sottoscrittori presenti solo in alcune delle copie censite. Cfr. Cohen-Ricci, 1025 e Le Petit (p. 535): ""Cette édition de luxe, la première qui porte le titre La Henriade, est aussi la première qui ait éte corrigée avec soin et revue par Voltaire. Elle présente un texte parfois différent de celui de l'édition de 1723 et des suivantes, et partout ce texte est beaucoup plus correct. Cette belle édition peut donc etre considérée comme la prèmiere vraiment authentique...". Edizione assai rara, da non confondersi con l'impressione (in-8) apparsa qualche settimana più tardi cui lo stesso Voltaire diede il permesso di stampa e che porta gli stessi dati tipografici ma nella quale non sono presenti le tavole.

        Lectiones opticae annis MDCLXIX, MDCLXX & MDCLXXI. In scholis publicis habitae: et nunc primum ex MSS. in lucem editae.London: William Innys for the Royal Society, 1729.

      First Latin and first complete edition of Newton's Lucasian lectures on optics. Although the English edition (1728) preceded the Latin, this was the first to publish the complete lectures (including the second part). Norman 1594.<br/><br/> The <i>Lectiones opticae</i> fall into two parts. The first, 'The refraction of light rays,' is based largely on Barrow's own Lucasian lectures on optics, which Newton had edited and seen through the press in 1669. They dealt with the geometrical aspects of reflection and refraction, and were intended to form a solid foundation for the second part, 'The origin of colours', which dealt with the compound nature of white light and the different refrangibility of colours. This second part was based on experiments he had performed starting in 1666; a terse announcement of the results had been published in the <i>Philosophical Transactions</i> in 1672. It was the controversy that greeted the publication of this paper, which went on for some six years, that had soured his attitude to 'the Presse'. <br/><br/> "Following Newton's death in 1727, it was decided by his family and followers to publish the lectures. The first part, dealing with geometrical optics, appeared in English translation in 1728. The second part, on colours, was omitted on the grounds that it 'was left imperfect' and, in an improved form, had already been published in the <i>Opticks</i> (1704). The present <i>editio princeps</i>, containing the complete series of lectures, "was prepared initially from the copy belonging to David Gregory. Errors, however, were noted when the manuscript was compared with the original in the [University Library] and publication was consequently delayed to allow for corrections to be made. The work is divided into thirty-one lectures, the first of which is dated January 1670" (Gjertsen, p. 410). <br/><br/> Although the colour theory had been published 25 years earlier in <i>Opticks</i>, the <i>Lectiones</i> are far from being of merely historical interest as they contain the mathematical treatment of the subject which had been omitted from </i>Opticks</i>. "Newton completely reworked his material [when writing <i>Opticks</i>], and some parts of his semi-popular argument could not have stood mathematically without reference to the lectures (in the posthumous editions of <i>Opticks</i> such cross-references were inserted, the Optical Lectures being by then accessible in print). There is a tight, precise, scientific quality about the lectures, written when much of the experimental work was still very fresh in Newton's mind, which the <i>Opticks</i> seems to lack, for all its far greater readability and, on many points, greater clarity. It is not altogether our hindsight that presents the lectures to us as the taut and enthusiastic work of an eager young man, setting his experimental discoveries and new conceptions before his audience with as much vigour as the academic circumstances allowed, while <i>Opticks</i> reads like the emotion of discovery recollected in tranquillity; it is the book of a middle-aged man who has pondered long and deeply on his topic and is not very unhappy to skate lightly over certain difficult passages" (Hall, pp. 57-8). <br/><br/> The manuscript of Lectiones opticae in Cambridge University Library is not in Newton's own hand but in that of John Wickins, Newton's 'chamber fellow' as a Cambridge student and his closest friend for some twenty years. <br/><br/> Babson 155; Wallis 191; ESTC T18664. D.Gjertsen, Newton Handbook, 1986; A. R. Hall, All was light, 1993 (see pp. 48-59 for a detailed comparison of the content of the Lectiones opticae and Opticks).. 4to (220 x 160 mm), pp xii, 144, [145]-[152], 153-291, [5, Addenda and corrigenda], with 14 engraved plates.
