        Mémoires de Monsieur L*** conseiller d'état, contenant : L'Histoire des Guerres Civiles des années 1649 & suivantes ; principalement celles de Guienne & autres Provinces.

      S.n. [Guérin], S.l. [Paris] 1729 - 547 pp. + 581 pp., 2 volumes, in-12, reliure pleine basane d'époque, dos 5 nerfs, caissons ornés. Edition Originale peu commune. Importants pour la Fronde, ces mémoires ne se recommandent pas par leur impartialité. Procureur Général en 1641, Lenet fut pendant la Fronde, chargé par Condé de plusieurs missions et principalement de négocier un traité avec l'Espagne. Il dut s'enfuir de France lors de la pacification de 1653 et ne put revenir qu'en 1661. "Lenet, dit Madame de Sévigné, avait de l'esprit comme douze". Mémoires d'un grand intérêt car l'auteur n'y relate que des faits dont il a été le témoin. Il fut particulièrement actif lors de la guerre de Guyenne et des luttes autour de Bordeaux comme agent du Prince de Condé et de Madame de Longueville. Une deuxième partie de ces mémoires, traitant de la période précédant la Fronde (1627-1643) fut publiée en.1826 dans la Collection des mémoires relatifs à l'histoire de France publiée par Petitot (tomes LIII et LIV). Coiffes et pièces de titres manquants, frottements et coins émoussés, papier en très bel état. Bon ensemble. In-12° [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Besonders bekannt und eigentlich allein bedeutend wurde er durch seine Bemühungen, eine Vereinigung der beiden protestantischen Confessionen und Kirchen herbeizuführen; noch als Professor der Philosophie schrieb er: ?Die nöthige Einigkeit der protestantischen Kirchen?, Tübingen 1719, worin er nachzuweisen suchte, daß in den Fundamentalartikeln des Glaubens beide Confessionen übereinstimmen, daß der Punkt in der Lehre von der Person Christi, welcher die Differenzen verursachte, kein Fundamentalartikel sei, sowenig wie die Lehre von dem h.

        Essai d'optique sur la gradation de la lumiere.

      Claude Jombert, Paris 1729 - A very nice copy in contemporary binding of the founding work of photometry. "Bouguer is regarded as the founder of photometry, the branch of optics concerned with measuring the intensity of light. His two most important contributions to the subject are contained in his Essai, the first part of which states his method of comparing the relative brightness of two lights by using the eye as a null indicator (i.e., to establish the equality of brightness of two adjacent surfaces) and applying the laws of inverse squares. The second part contains the first statement of what is often called Bouguer's law: that in a medium of uniform transparency, the light remaining in a collimated beam is an exponential function of the length of its path in the medium. This law was restated thirty-one years later in Lambert's Photometria and is thus sometimes referred to as Lambert's law" (DSB). Norman 283. 8vo: 166 x 100 mm. (22), 164, (4:errata) pp. and 3 engraved folding plates. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gilt spine, all edges and boarders gilt, head of spine with some chipping, hinges slightly worn, engraved book plate to front paste down. A fine copy.

        The Secrets of the Invisible World Disclos'd. Or, an Universal History of Apparitions Sacred and Prophane, Under all Denominations; Whether, Angelical, Diabolical, or Human Souls departed. [previously: 'History and Reality of Apparitions']

      J. Clarke A. Millar and J. Green, London 1729 - Hardcover, 8vo, [xii +] 396 pp, Contemporary calf boards, with later (nineteenth century?) leather spine raised bands and blind tooling and leather spine labels with gilt titling between bands. Frontis, and five full-page engraved plates. The third issue of the first edition of the last of Defoe's treatises on the supernatural. It was also the last issue published during the author's lifetime. The book was first published anonymously in March 1727 under the title "An Essay on the History and Reality of Apparitions " but perhaps because of the anonymity sales were slow. In November 1728 it was reissued using the same sheets as the first edition, but with a new title-page which identified the author as "Andrew Moreton" (a pseudonym which Defoe had used several times previously) a different title and a different publisher ("J. Peele"). In February of the following year it was reissued once more, using the same first edition sheets, but again with a different title page, the details of which was essentially the same as those of the second issue, except that it had yet another publisher's imprint (J. Clarke, A. Millar and J. Green). This, the third issue of the First Edition, was also the final issue of that edition. The Second Edition, which was a complete new printing, did not appear until 1735, four years after the author's death. The book itself is essentially a lengthy argument attesting to the existence of beings of "the invisible world." The waning of belief in witchcraft during the seventeenth century had been accompanied by a broader rejection of the supernatural, a viewpoint against which Defoe argued vehemently, suggesting that disbelief in apparitions was tantamount to religious unbelief. In this work he explores the nature of ghosts, angels, and other supernatural beings, arguing that while they may not be as we imagine them (he did not, for example, believe ghosts to be the spirits of departed people) they existed nonetheless, as had been well attested throughout history. The full subtitle gives a fair summation of its contents: Or, an Universal History of Apparitions Sacred and Prophane, Under all Denominations; Whether, Angelical, Diabolical, or Human Souls departed. Shewing I. THEIR various Returns to this World; with sure Rules to know, by their Manner of Appearing, if they are Good or Evil ones. II. The Differences of the Apparitions of Antient and Modern Times; and an Enquiry into the Scriptural Doctrine of Spirits. III. The many Species of Apparitions, their real Existence, and Operations by Divine Appointment. IV. The Nature of seeing Ghosts before, and after, Death; and how we should behave towards them. V. The Effects of Fancy, Vapours, Dreams, Hyppo, and of real or Imaginary Appearances. VI. A Collection of the most Authentic Relations of Apparitions, particularly that surprizing One attested by the learned Dr. Scott. The spine has been sympathetically rebacked, probably during the nineteenth century, preserving the original boards, which are rubbed and rounded at the corners. Old pencil notes to rear blank and pastedowns, clipping from a bookseller's catalogue advertising a different edition on the front pastedown. Title page a little grubbing, a few spots of browning and a few faint discolored patches to the margins here and there, but the over all the pages are clean and supple, and generally the books is an attractive VG+ copy.

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

      [Paris?, 9 mai 1729 - 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'Académie Française. 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 réponse 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 embrouillée qu'il ne put même pas prononcer le symbole avant de recevoir le Saint Viatique, et n'a pas été en état de prononcer une seule parole de suite sur les sentiments dans lesquels il mouroit. Le chapitre a nommé six vicaires généraux dont plus de la moitié sont bons et les autres ne sont que douteux. Il y a lieu d'espérer que s'ils ne font pas grand bien, au moins ne feront-ils pas de mal . Il ne fault pas être étonné que les Jansénistes cherchent ê profiter de tout et l'interprêter ê 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 rétractations sincères d'appel. Les chapitres de Laon, de Boulogne, de Tours, de Bayeux, etc., sont presque déja purgés des réfractaires . " 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'Orléans, regent of France, and a letter to Phillippe from a Carmelite order asking for charity.

        Theologie astronomique, ou demonstration de l'existence et des attributs de dieu, par l'examen et la description des cieux, enrichie de figures. Traduite de l'anglois sur la cinquéme édition.

      1729 - Paris, chez Chaubert, 1729. 8:o. (32),287 pp. & 3 folded engraved plates. Contemporary full calf with raised bands, richly gilt spine, red morocco title label and sprinkled edges. Gilt extremities. Boards concave. A small stain of rust on the title page, but apart from that, a clean copy. From the library of Biby manor. The original, "Astro-theology: or, a demonstration of the being and attributes of God" was published for the first time in 1715 and translated into French by François Bellenger. The English clergyman and scientist William Derham (1657-1735) was a fellow of the Royal Society and an important representative of the physico-theological school of thinking, in which teleological arguments was put forth for the being and attributes of God. This work accounts for several newly identified nebulae, some of which we now know as star clusters. Derhams 16-feet long telescope was placed at the top of the tower of St Laurence's Church and was also used when he made his famous estimate of the speed of sound. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Contains Halley&#39;s chart of magnetic lines."-Wheeler Gift Cat. 268-(illustrated). This work is also notable for containing Musschenbroek&#39;s experiments on the strength of materials, capillarity, and cohesion. "Of particular relevance to this collection is &#39;Introduction ad Cohaerentiam Corporum Firmorum,&#39; accompanied by a number of plates illustrating fractured test specimens and testing apparatus. Also of relevance is the chapter &#39;Tentamen de corporum Duritiâ,&#39; which concerns the hardness of materials."-Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 232. Musschenbroek (1692-1761), professor of natural philosophy and mathematics at Utrecht and, later, professor of experimental physics at Leyden, was one of the most celebrated physicists and most important investigators of his time. The experiments described in his books have become classics in elementary instruction. "Underlying Musschenbroek&#39;s lectures demonstrated with experiments was the experimental philosophy...the principal source of inspiration was Newton, but Galileo, Torricelli, Huygens, Réaumur, and others were important to this school."-D.S.B., IX, p. 596.

        Die Geduld. ("Patience").

      . Kupferstich in Punktiermanier, in mehreren Farben, von W.W. Ryland (1729 oder 1732-1783), auf Bütten. Darstellung im Hochoval. 37,7:29 cm. Published London 1777. Literatur: Nagler 19; Le Blanc 25; Boerner 1979, vgl. 185; vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Angelika Kauffmann. Ein Weib von ungeheurem Talent. Hrsg. von T.G. Natter. Bregenz 2007, Nr. 150 (Rotdruck). Illustration zu William Mason, Caractacus.. Angelika Kauffmann war eine der berühmtesten Malerinnen ihrer Zeit. Bereits als 11jährige galt sie als Wunderkind. Als Tochter des Porträt- und Freskenmalers J.J. Kauffmann (1702-1782), der ihr erster Lehrer war, wurde Kauffmanns zeichnerisches und musikalisches Talent schon im Kindesalter erkannt und gefördert. Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.

        Tarih-I Seyyah

      The third book printed in Turkey, from the first press under Islamic auspices. 1729. Istanbul. Ibrahim Muteferrika. In 8vo (214 mm x 152 mm). 4 ff. + 99 ff. + 3 [blank]. A fine copy bound in its contemporary Turkish leather; probably the original binding. Excellent example: wide margins and overall very clean and fresh.The third book printed in Turkey ?"printed during the first year of the printing house´s existence. First edition. The first book printed in Turkey was Vankuli´s Kitab-i Lugat-i Vankuli; the second was Celebi´s Tuhfet ul-Kibar fi Esfar Il-Bihar (1729). Muteferrika (1674 ?" 1745) was born near Transylvania (Kolozsvar), soon he was captured by the Ottomans at a young age during his appointment as diplomat; whilst in Istanbul he became familiarized with the Turkish, their language, customs and religion ?"converting into Islam. Muteferrika was a learned humanist, educated in geography, astronomy, philosophy economy, and other sciences. Sultan Ahmed III gave him license to become a printer, and thus he began the first printing press of moveable Arabic type in Turkey, and under Islamic auspices. The press gave birth to 17 works, until it was discontinued in 1742. Muteferrika is regarded as one of the champions of Ottoman reform of the 18th century, and the introducer of the printing press into the Ottoman Empire.Father Krusinski (1675 ?" 1751) was a Jesuit missionary, head of the Jesuit missions to Isfahan, also, appointed diplomat of the French King to the Persian Court; during his stay in Persia he eye-witnessed the Afghan invasion of 1722, and the slaughter of the Persian Princes. He wrote this account on his experiences during the invasion and re-taking of the city, published in English, French and Latin. Furthermore, the work provides an overview of the historical processes of Iran, focused on the reorganization of the relations of power in the region. Muteferrika appoints himself as the translator, a fact disputed by Krusinski.Backer-Sommervogel, IV, 1264.

        Les Voyages de Glantzby dans les mers Orientales de la Tartarie : avec les Avantures surprenantes des Rois Loriman & Osmundar, Princes Orientaux

      Paris: Chez la Veuve Delaulne, 1729. Octavo, with a folding map; a good copy in lightly worn contemporary French sprinkled calf, spine banded and gilt, crimson morocco label. Imaginary voyage to the Bering Sea. Early edition of an imaginary voyage to the Orient, purporting to be a translation from the Danish. Long recognised as one of the earliest imitations of Swift, most critics have also recognised this as one of the better attempts in the genre. Sailing from Copenhagen via the Cape of Good Hope the protagonist journeys past the newly discovered land of Japan, and into the imaginary lands of Norre and Arrimond, both situated on a land mass in the Bering Sea between latitudes 40° and 50°. Glanztby&#39;s adventures are numerous: he is party to a bloody revolution and its peaceful resolution, after which he assumes an ambassadorial role and journeys to the Court of China.
