Robert Morris - An Essay in Defence of Ancient Architecture - 1728 UK first edition published by D. Browne, W. Bickerton, K. Pote and J. Walthoe Complete with the engraved frontispiece, fourteen plates, a table and a page of ads to the rear. The book is reasonably firmly bound in eighteenth century half calf, with brown paper covered boards, there is some splitting at the spine and much rubbing, bumping and staining. The text block is quite heavily age toned with some foxing and staining to all pages, more heavily so to the earlier and later leaves. Morris's first book, in which he is quite scathing in his criticism of the modern baroque style, comparing it unfavourably with buildings constructed on ancient lines. However, he is very happy to lavish praise on the quite recently deceased greats, Inigo Jones and Sir Christopher Wren. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bartolomeo Eustachi avait fait réaliser ces gravures pour un traité anatomique destiné à concurrencer celui de Vésale ; cet écrit n’était jamais paru et les planches ne furent redécouvertes qu’en 1714 par Johannes Lancisi qui les fit publier avec des notes. Heirs of Hippocrates [324 (ed. 1714) : "With the intention of publishing an anatomical text, Eustachi had completed the drawings for his work and the plates had been engraved by 1552. The text, however, was never completed and Eustachi's notes to the plates were lost except for the eight which had been published in his lifetime. The plates were inherited by Eustachi's assistant and were eventually deposited in the Vatican Library, where they were uncovered a century and a half later and published by the papal physician, Giovanni Maria Lancisi (see No. 687 ff.), who added his elucidations and included the previously published eight plates with Eustachi's commentary. In all, there are forty-seven plates. Although from an artistic standpoint they are not as well done as the anatomical plates of Vesalius, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition Originale posthume des œuvres de Johann Philipp von Wurzelbau (1651-1725), un amateur allemand passionné d'astronomie qui devint le plus célèbre astronome de Nuremberg, sa ville natale. Commerçant en laiton de son état, il s'était intéressé à l'astronomie et aux mathématiques dès 1678 et il s'équipa d'un observatoire privé en 1682, qu'il fit agrandir dans une tour spécialement construite en 1692. Il a laissé des observations minutieuses sur certains phénomènes astronomiques, en particulier sur la course du soleil, des travaux sur les coordonnées géographiques de Nuremberg ainsi que des instruments astronomiques conçus d'après ses indications. Wurzelbau entretenait une vaste correspondance scientifique avec Leibnitz, Cassini, La Hire, Helvetius, et beaucoup d'autres savants a travers l'Europe. Un cratère de la Lune porte notamment son nom. La présente édition contient les trois ouvrages publiés par Wurzelbau de son vivant: "Stabilimentum baseos Uranies Noricae astronomico-geographicae", "Uranies Noricae basis astronomica" (avec un texte diffe rent qui paraît ici pour la première fois) et "Tabulae solares Noricae".

GRAVESANDE, William-James 's [Willem Jacob] (1688-1742).
John Senex, 1728., London. 8vo. iv, 187, [1] pp. 4 folding plates, decorative headpieces. Original gilt-stamped calf, modern red leather gilt-stamped spine label, raised bands; rubbed, joints cracked, upper spine mended. Ownership stamp of "P.G." Very good. Rare. First edition in English; first printed in Leiden in 1727, as Matheseos universalis elementa. "This work, translated into Dutch (1728) and English (1752 [sic]), is of didactic rather than original merit, but it was significant for its invitation to mathematicians to elucidate systematically Newton's Universal Arithmetick, which 'sGravesande exemplified by his own explanation of two passages from Newton's book. 'sGravesande found the lighthearted treatment of infinitesimals and the infinite in Bernard de Fontenelle's Elemens de la geometrie de l'infini (Paris, 1727) unacceptable, and he maintained his objections in the Journal litteraire against Fontenelle's rejoinder (1730)." â€" DSB V, p. 510.

Oppian (Oppianus of Corycus)
Firênze, Tartini ê Franchi, 1728. 8vo (17.1 x 11.0 cm). Title page in red and black with engraved vignette, xvii, 310, [ii] pp. Contemporary vellum. Spine with morocco label with gilt title. The first Italian translation of Oppian's work on fishing, originally published in Greek, and translated into Latin in the 16th century. "Oppian of Corycus (or Anazarbus) in Cilicia, who flourished in the reign of Marcus Aurelius (121-180 AD]. According to an anonymous biographer, his father, having incurred the displeasure of Lucius Verus, the colleague of Marcus Aurelius, by neglecting to pay his respects to him when he visited the town, was banished to Malta. Oppian, who had accompanied his father into exile, returned after the death of Verus (169) and went on a visit to Rome. Here he presented his poems to Marcus Aurelius, who was so pleased with them that he gave the author a piece of gold for each line, took him into favor and pardoned his father. Oppian subsequently returned to his native country, but died of the plague shortly afterwards, at the early age of thirty. His contemporaries erected a statue in his honor, with an inscription which is still extant, containing a lament for his premature death and a eulogy of his precocious genius" (wikipedia). Also included is the first Italian translation of the long poem on hunting, which, however, was written by another man who called himself Oppian (Oppian of Apamea), apparently after the "real" Oppian. This work was "...dedicated to the emperor Caracalla, so that it must have been written after 211. It consists of about 2150 lines, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jacques Estienne, Francois Babuty
France: Jacques Estienne Francois Babuty, 1728. Our Blue Ridge Home Welcomes you And thanks you for stopping by Description Antique book Explication Du Mystere De La Passion De Notre-Seigneur Jesus-Christ - The Passion of Christ. Book is dated 1728 (in Roman numerals), was published by Chez Jacques Estienne with Francois Babuty. It has some writing inside the front cover, written most likely with a quill pen and ink. I cannot really make out the words, but it looks like "celis re aparticut amorie cenaro de laurel" - on the opposite page there is a name which looks very much like Auguste Renard or Renoir and if it is, this book is worth WAY more than my asking price. However, I cannot attest to the name, it could be any Auguste of the period. I have shown you a photo of the signature. The book is written entirely in French. Printed on the first inside page, along with the name and authors names are the words "Suivant la Concorde. Premiere Partie" and other words. I am fairly certain the cover is sheepskin, given the date of the book. I have never been able to find another book like this, not even on the site that sells books by Jacques Estienne. You can find Part Two, but this is Part One. My opinion is that not only is this book rare, but it is scarce and possibly the only one or one of only a few remaining in existence. It shows the age, by the yellowing of the pages and wear to the cover and there are stains as well. However, given the fact that this book is almost 300 years old, I would say it has held up rather well. On the side of the binding is printed "Jesus Crvcif" … [Click Below for Full Description]

The text block is quite heavily age toned with some foxing and staining to all pages, more heavily so to the earlier and later leaves. Morris's first book, in which he is quite scathing in his criticism of the modern baroque style, comparing it unfavourably with buildings constructed on ancient lines. However, he is very happy to lavish praise on the quite recently deceased greats, Inigo Jones and Sir Christopher Wren. [Attributes: First Edition]

TORRES VILLARROEL (Diego de) ?].
En Madrid, 1728. in-4. 6ff. 68pp. Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale très rare de cette critique d'un célèbre ouvrage de Diego de Torres Villarroel, dont le véritable auteur est probablement le "Piscator de Salamanca" lui-même. Publiée l'année précédente, l'ouvrage "Visiones y visitas de Torres con D. Francisco de Quevedo por la Corte" avait suscité la polémique: première oeuvre majeure de Torres Villarroel, les "Visions" étaient constituées d'une série de vignettes satiriques consacrées aux personnages du Madrid de l'époque, dans le style de son mentor littéraire Francisco de Quevedo. Le présent ouvrage, dont l'auteur se présente comme "el Bachiler Don Geronimo de Veracia, profesor de Philosophia Corpuscular en la Universidad de Alcalà" et se revendique comme un défenseur de Quevedo, contient d'une part des attaques contres les détracteurs de Torres et de son mentor mais également un commentaire critique plein d'humour des Visions. "Amuseur dans la vie, Diego de Torres Villarroel veut l'être aussi en littérature, ( ) tout l'attire, pourvu que sa renommée sorte grandie d'une pratique littéraire qui, dans la plupart des cas, a partie liée avec le discours sur soi" (Encyclopaedia Universalis). La curieuse vignette du titre représente une tête de mort entre deux croix de Saint-Jacques. Traces de mouillures claires. Rogné un peu court. Palau, 359132: "El ejemplar de la Nacional está encuadernado con Diálogo del juicio y el desengaño. Todo eso posibles engaños de Torres Villarroel." [Attributes: First Edition]

YOUNG, George.
1728. Kroepelien, KRO 4256; for first edition see: Beddie 122; Holmes 87; not in Beddie; Forbes. Second edition, the first to be printed in Paris, of a biography of James Cook (1728-1779) by the Presbyterian minister and scholar George Young (1777-1848): "An excellent little life of Cook, superior both in accuracy and in personal details to that of Kippis. Contains some valuable bibliographical material" (Holmes). Young based his biography on authentic documents and included local information and memories about Cook that were unknown to Kippis, who had published a biography in 1788. The book is divided into 24 chapters, covering Cook's life from his childhood to his death, with much information on his three voyages to the Pacific. Some minor foxing and the binding slightly rubbed along the extremities, otherwise in good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]
