Ausbildung in Genf erwarb T. 1749 in Montpellier bei François Boissier de Sauvages den Doktortitel in Medizin. Danach kehrte er in die Waadt zurück, wo er aufgrund seines selbstlosen Einsatzes während der Pockenepidemie von 1752 als Armenarzt von Lausanne bezeichnet wurde. Mit der Veröffentlichung seines ersten Buchs "L'inoculation justifiée" (1754) reihte er sich unter die Aufklärer ein. Er begann einen Briefwechsel mit Albrecht von Haller, dessen Werke T. ins Französische übersetzte. Seinen ersten grossen Erfolg feierte er mit der medizin. Schrift "Von der Onanie" (1785, lat. 1758, franz. 1760), einem umstrittenen Versuch, das Thema aus medinzin. Sicht zu betrachten. Die Schrift erfuhr im Französischen bis Ende des 19. Jh. 67 Auflagen und wurde in fünf Sprachen übersetzt. Dank seinem Werk "Anleitung für das Landvolk in Absicht auf seine Gesundheit" (1762, franz. 1761) erlangte er in Europa Berühmtheit. Die populärwissenschaftl. Darstellung, die ursprünglich für die Waadtländer Oberschicht gedacht war, erfreute sich einer ungewöhnl. Beliebtheit. Bis 1830 wurde sie 47-mal neu aufgelegt und in 15 Sprachen übertragen.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727), mathematician and natural philosopher. Best known for his mathematical and scientific works Principia (1687) and Opticks (1704), Newton's eclectic academic interests included theology and biblical chronology, often bordering on areas considered occult in eighteenth-century Britain. Newton composed The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms for the Princess of Wales, but it was not published until after his death. In addition to examining the chronological evidence for the Greek, Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian and Persian empires, in this work Newton also dedicated a chapter and three engraved plates to proving, with reference to the Temple, that Solomon was the earliest King. Despite working towards publication of the manuscript in his final years, the work was not fully prepared for the press under after Newton's death, by John Conduit (1688-1737), his relative by marriage and literary … [Click Below for Full Description]

Published in the 'Atlas maritimus & commercialis: or, a General View of the World, so far as Relates to Trade & Navigation'. The Atlas maritimus can be used as an index of English trading activity at this period, since detailed insets and harbour plans emphasise those areas of greatest commercial significance. Although the author of the text is anonymous, Daniel Defoe is thought to have contributed to it, and Halley, the Astronomer-Royal, added a prefatory note discussing the use of the charts; it is therefore sometimes catalogued under his name. It has also been attributed to Harris, Senex and Wilson, those name appears on one chart. Senex was certainly responsible for one of the atlas's innovations, the globular chart of Western Europe whose projection according to the title-page was "authorized by letters patent". The atlas was purely commercial and was not a real rival to the 'English Pilot': unlike the Pilot it compressed global coverage into one book, as well as describing the the south and west coast of America, omitted by the former.

FLECHIER, Esprit;
Paris, Veuve Mazières et Garnier, 1728. In-8 de (3) ff., XXXVI, 729 pp., (1) f., maroquin rouge, riche reliure à compartiments composée d'entrelacs de quadruples filets dorés ornés de feuillages, rinceaux et fleurons frappés au pointillé, petite dentelle d'encadrement avec fleurs de lys aux angles, armes au centre, dos à nerfs fleurdelysé et doré, coupes décorées, roulette intérieure, tranches dorées sur marbrures (reliure de l'époque). Une page de titre gravée, une vignette de dédicace aux armes de la reine et 3 figures hors texte gravées par Scotin. Splendide reliure compartimentée, très inspirée des fanfares du siècle précédent. Ce type de décor ne se rencontre pratiquement que sur des Semaines Saintes ou des Almanachs Royaux. Souvent attribué à un suiveur de Le Gascon, il a été par la suite rendu à Antoine-Michel Padeloup par Esmerian (Tableaux synoptiques, Annexe X). Très bel exemplaire aux armes de la reine Marie Leczinska. La reine avait, dit-on, une prédilection pour les ouvrages traitant de religion et d'histoire. Sa bibliothèque ne fut jamais d'apparat ou de convenance, comme en témoigne cette confidence glissée dans une lettre qu'elle adresse en 1732 au cardinal Fleury : La solitude de Versailles est affreuse. J'aimerais, quasi mieux, être dans un couvent. Si je n'avais mes livres et mon ouvrage, je n'y pourrais tenir. Après l'éloignement du roi, elle restait comme étrangère dans le palais où elle était souveraine. Le roi dans sa froideur, était avec la reine d'une régularité impitoyable, et d'Argenson d'ajouter; il lui fit sept enfants, sans lui dire un mot. Les … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOLLAND, Richard, M.D.
1728. 4 p.l., xix, 164 pp. 8vo, cont. mottled calf by John Brindley, single gilt fillet round sides, the four corners of each cover elaborately gilt with Brindley's characteristic dolphins surmounted by crowns within circular wreaths, spine divided into six compartments, five of which with the golden fleece device in gilt, green morocco lettering piece in remaining compartment. London: J. Brindley, 1728. First edition; an extraordinary "illuminated" copy with the title-page, initials, and section headings all heightened in gold, and bound by John Brindley, bookbinder to Frederick, Prince of Wales and Queen Caroline. The initials along with the vignettes and typographical ornaments at the beginning and end of each chapter have also been skillfully decorated in blue, red, and yellow. This remarkable book, with all the decorations contemporary, comes from the library at Marble Hill House, the Palladian villa constructed 1724-29 at Twickenham which was built by Henrietta Howard (ca. 1688-1767), countess of Suffolk and mistress of George II. Pope helped design the gardens and he, Gay, and George Berkeley were frequent visitors. Henrietta Howard was an intimate of Queen Caroline, who encouraged the countess in her sexual relationship with King George II. The present book is dedicated to Queen Caroline and clearly there is some connection, because of its special illuminations and binding, between the Queen and Henrietta Howard. Could this have been the Queen's copy or one specially prepared for her close and useful friend? This book was printed by William Bowyer and his … [Click Below for Full Description]
