        Epistolarum Mathematicarum Fasciculus

      Woodcut device on title & 11 engraved plates (mostly folding). 99 unnumbered leaves. Large 4to, cont. decorative paste-paper boards, entirely uncut. Padua: [ex Typographia Seminarii], 1729. First edition. "The letters in this valuable collection are addressed to such well-known scientists as Guido Grandi, J. G. Marinoni, and G. Manfredi. The subjects include anatomy, mathematics (construction of curves), physics (vis-viva), and astronomy. A letter to Marinoni deals with the recent eclipse of the sun and some experiments in hydraulics showing the influence of Newton and Huygens, and has, as an appendix, the text of the very rare treatise De fluentis aquae mensura by Giovanni Buteo from Dauphiné (1492-1564). This treatise occupies itself mostly with the work of Julius Frontinus on the water supply of Rome. Buteo credits him with the invention of a system for measuring water... "Among the letters on astronomy are descriptions of eclipses of mercury, the moon, and the sun; and the letters on physiology include a rather scientific treatise on muscular movement and the circulation of the blood, still others concern geometry and logarithms."­Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 263. Poleni (1683-1761), was professor of astronomy, physics, and mathematics at the University of Padua. He conducted meteorological observations, invented an early calculating machine, wrote on cranes and on many other scientific matters. He also corresponded with French, English, German, and Italian savants (most notably Euler, Maupertuis, the Bernoullis, and Cassini III). Three old and small library stamps on title, otherwise a nice copy. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. Riccardi, I, 294­"Bella e rara edizione." .

Provenance: signature of the bibliophile Douglas Grant in pencil to front fly leaf. Wither to Prior 941.& First Collected Edition, the "most sumptuous ever published. It contains all the poems which had hitherto appeared, to which the editor has added four new . . . Waller's letter are added for the first time and the various prefaces to the earlier editions are reprinted. Finally, the information given in the notes is so full and accurate that little has been left to the research or correction of later editions." (Wither to Prior) Waller's poems were widely read during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. "Dryden, who greatly admired Waller and consistently treated him as mentor and precursor, claimed that ‘the well-placing of words, for the sweetness of pronunciation, was not known till Mr. Waller introduced it.' . . . When neo-classical canons of correctness fell out of fashion in the nineteenth century, Waller's poetic reputation plummeted, and it has never fully recovered, [though] . . . renewed interest in court culture and in the intersection of literature and history toward the end of the twentieth century has led to a modest Waller revival."

        Collegium curiosum ... Oder ein sehr nützliches Werck, darinnen curieus und doch vollkömmlich abgehandelt wird, was zur Physiognomie, Chiromantie, Metoposcopie und Anthropologie gehöret

      Frankfurt und Leipzig, Ph. W. Stock, 1729.. Mit 4 gefalt. Kupfertafeln, 4 gefalt. Holzschnitt-Tafeln und 3 Textholzschnitten. 3 Bll., 128 S. Buntpapierumschlag. Graesse, BMP 101. - Erstmals 1704 erschienen. - "Er ist ein wüthender Feind eines gewissen Kreises abergläubischer Anschauungen, wie sie das gewöhnliche, tägliche Leben zu beherrschen pflegen. Gegen diese zieht er spottend und scheltend zu Felde und seiner redseligen Feindschaft verdanken wir ein wahrhaft unerschöpfliches Register derselben. Aber dabei steckt er selber tief im Aberglauben, sobald derselbe nur eine Art religiöses, wissenschaftliches oder gelehrtes Gewand trägt. So sind die Astrologie und die Chiromantie, die Metoposcopie, der Glaube an Hexen und Zauberei für ihn unumstößlich sicher, sie sind theils Mittel, deren sich das göttliche Wesen zu seiner Offenbarung bedient, theils Mittel des Teufels, verwerflich aber in Wirklichkeit vorhanden" (ADB XXVII, 520).

        Miscellaneous Engravings in Color [Recueil D'Estampes D'Apres les Plus Beaux Tableaux et D'Apres les Plus Beaux Desseins qui sont en France]

      Paris: Chez Basin, 1729-1742. Full Morocco. Fine. A set of spectacular hand-colored baroque wood engravings of mythological and allegorical scenes mostly. Large folio. Nine hand-colored copperplate engravings and mezzotints from an edition of Cabinet Crozat. Four of the plates are double sided. While this is far from the full complement of plates from Crozat's work, they are hand-colored, and meticulously so, and generally one does not encounter so. The paintings represented are "La Champestre", by Dominque Feti and from the Royal Collection, "Mars et Venus lies par l'Amour" by Paul Veronese from the Collection of the Duc D'Orleans, "Venus et Adonis" by Paul Veronese from the Cabinet de M. Dupille, "Portrait de Raphael" from the Royal Collection, "Erigone" by Guido Reni, "Venus Couchee" from the Palazzo Barberini in Rome, "Le Triomphe de Titus et de Vespasien" by Jules Romain from the Royal Collection, "Galatee" by Carle Maratte from the Collection of the Duc D'Orleans, and "Jupiter amoureux d"Antiope se transforme en Satire" by Titien in the Royal Collection. The collection might have been created by a print seller. There are many blank sheets upon which the compiler might have intended to add additional prints; there is evidence on only a single leaf that a print might have been removed. In any case, the binding is magnificent and for that reason, this collection deserves to remain as such. Full green Morocco ruled and lettered in gilt, with morocco doublures and silk endpapers. Even with some scuffs and wear on the binding, it is magnificent. The volume measures a massive 24.5 by 18 inches, or 62 by 49 cm.

Pages are generally clean with periodic mild to moderate age toning and occasional spots of light foxing. Title page to volume I is printed slightly off-center.

The text of the Vulgate and the new Latin translation produced by Leo de Juda and others (first published 1543) are printed in parallel columns. Stephanus included marginal notes which were taken during the lectures of French theologian Francois Vatable. The notes, however, appear to be colored by Stephanus's own religious opinions (See Darlow 6127) and they were subsequently condemned by the Theological Faculty of Paris. The preliminary sections of this edition include a "Chronologica sacra" with tables and an "Animadversiones in geographiam sacram" also with tables. These are heavy books; please inquire about postage. [Darlow & Moule 6261; Graesse I, p. 397].

        Letter Signed ("Le Card. de Fleury) to Cardinal Corradini on matters relating to the Jansenists

      [Paris?, 9 mai 1729. Folio. 7 pp. Tipped into a bound volumes with several other documents, engravings of the period, including engraved portraits of Cardinal Noailles, Louis XVI, a portrait of Fleury himself, of Phillippe d'OrlEans, regent of France, and a letter to Phillippe from a Carmelite order asking for charity. Full red morocco gilt, by SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE . A letter of great interest, relating to Jansenism and the reaction of the Church authorities to the challenge it posed. Fleury (1653-1743) was an extremely powerful advisor and minister to Louis XV, a member of l'AcadEmie FranÁaise. He wrote this immediately following the death of Cardinal de Noailles, the Archbishop of Paris who was closely associated with policy of the Papal Bull known as Unigenitus (1713), which had virtually banished Jansenists from the Church. In the years following the Bull, known as the period of 'appeal' because the Jansenists called for a new Church Council to resolve the issues, the clergy was divided. In his letter announcing the death of the Cardinal de Noailles, Fleury expresses his hopes for a period when Jansenism will diminish, and cites various cases of retraction among the dissidents. "Je commence ma rEponse par la nouvelle que Votre Eminence recevra sans doute d'ailleurs, qui est la mort de M. le Cardinal de Noailles. Il avait une connaissance si confuse et si embrouillEe qu'il ne put mÍme pas prononcer le symbole avant de recevoir le Saint Viatique, et n'a pas EtE en Etat de prononcer une seule parole de suite sur les sentiments dans lesquels il mouroit. Le chapitre a nommE six vicaires gEnEraux dont plus de la moitiE sont bons et les autres ne sont que douteux. Il y a lieu d'espErer que s'ils ne font pas grand bien, au moins ne feront-ils pas de mal ... Il ne fault pas Ítre EtonnE que les JansEnistes cherchent Í profiter de tout et l'interprÍter Í leur avantage. S'il falloit en croire leurs gazettes, presque tout le monde seroit en France de leur parti et Dieu merci rien n'est plus faux, car un grand nombre des novateurs ouvrent les yeux tous les jours, et je pourrois citer depuis un mois plusieurs exemples de rEtractations sincËres d'appel. Les chapitres de Laon, de Boulogne, de Tours, de Bayeux, etc., sont presque dEja purgEs des rEfractaires ... "

First edition. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece portrait of Trissino, a Renaissance humanist, poet, dramatist, and grammarian. Born of a patrician family in Vicenza, Giovanni Giogio Trissino (1478-1550) was exiled from Venice for political reasons, but found favor with a series of Popes who offered their protection. His drama Sophonisba (1515), which is based partly on the life of a Carthaginian lady, served as a model for the early modern tragic form in theatre. He also helped promote the early career of architect Andrea Palladio, with whom he maintained a long friendship.

        (Alexander) The Dunciad, Variorum. With the Prolegomena of Scriblerus.

      London, Printed for A. Dod, 1729 . first edition, 4to., pp.[ii]+29+[3]+118+cxix-cxxiv, engraved vignette (ass with burden of books surmounted by owl) on title, contents in fresh state; well rebound in half calf antique, gilt, red morocco label Griffith 211; Foxon P771. First edition of the Dunciad Variorum, the version most often cited and read. Though the text of the poem was not changed greatly in length (1,014 lines compared with 920 lines in the editions of 1728) the size of the work was quadrupled by the addition of the "Prolegomena," apparatus criticus, notes and appendixes, in which Pope and his circle attacked his antagonists more directly and pungently than in the poem itself. The names of many of the dunces, previously left blank or indicated by initials, are here supplied.

J.B.Homann nasce a Norimberga nel 1663; lavora inizialmente per David Funk e per Giacomo Sandrart finchè, nel 1702, inizia una propria produzione cartografica, raggiungendo ben presto un notevole successo per l'eleganza e la modernità, ben amalgamando aspetto scientifico e decorativo. Nel 1707 pubblica il primo atlante, arricchendolo rapidamente fino a superare il centinaio di carte con il ''Grosser Atlas" di 126 carte. Muore nel 1723, ma la sua attività viene portata avanti dagli eredi.

        Tutte le Opere di Giovan Giorgio Trissino gentiluomo vicentino non piu raccolte

Two vols. in one; 4to., pp. half-title + frontis + [iii]-xxiv + [xlii] + [1]-296 + ff 2 (maps) + [297,298] + 299-398; [viii] + [1]-317 + blank + ff 1 + [1]-82; 18th c. half vellum over marbled paper boards; red morocco gilt spine label; boards worn with buckram reinforcements to spine; buckram-backed endpapers; all edges stained green; library inkstamp to front endpaper and title page; library pocket and electronic tag to rear endpaper; title pages in red and black; text generally clean and bright; a serviceable ex-library copy. First edition. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece portrait of Trissino, a Renaissance humanist, poet, dramatist, and grammarian. Born of a patrician family in Vicenza, Giovanni Giogio Trissino (1478-1550) was exiled from Venice for political reasons, but found favor with a series of Popes who offered their protection. His drama Sophonisba (1515), which is based partly on the life of a Carthaginian lady, served as a model for the early modern tragic form in theatre. He also helped promote the early career of architect Andrea Palladio, with whom he maintained a long friendship. Good.
