        Novissima et accuratior tabella magni ducatus Hetruriae.

      Artist: Seutter Matthias ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1730 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 50 x 58; - description: Map shows the Toskana and the island of Elba.; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

        Autograph Letter Signed Portsmouth, July 10, 1789 to John Langdon, New York City

      folio, two pages of a four page bi-folium, some splits along folds, remains of sealing wax on integral address leaf, docketed "Jo Whipples Letter." In very good, clean and legible condition. Joseph Whipple, collector of customs at Portsmouth, (brother of General William Whipple 1730 - 1785 revolutionary War General and Signer from New Hampshire) writes to John Langdon (1741 - 1819) Senator and first President pro-tem of the Senate, thanking Langdon for his help and influence in obtaining a post in the new government and comments upon the recent establishment of the Federal court and judicial system. Langdon, a Portsmouth native, was the right person to ask as he was also a friend of the President, George Washington. "Dear Sir I have the Honour this moment to receive your favour of the 5th & am much obliged by your kind assurances of attention to my business and also for having seasonably lodged my name with the President - I should have wrote now to him agreeably to your intimation but am discouraged from the consideration of his having no personal knowledge of me and that it might on that account appear and interested application which might operate to my disadvantage - and I conceive also that your influence with the President on which I have rested my expectation is such as I need wish no other. - But if you conceive that it would be of use to hand my name with your recommendation to Mr. Vice President, to Mr. Morris, Mr. R H Lee, Mr. Dalton, your Colleagues or others as you may think proper, I should consider myself further & greatly obliged - but I think your interest requires no aid - as it will of course be represented by you that I am in the office of Colltr. - To some of the names that I have mentioned I am known - others of them were formerly either officially connected or intimately acquainted with my Brother on which account I should have applyd to them for their influence - I imagine also that all appointments will be completed tin a few days if not by this. - You will hear that the Judiciary bill is not relishd this way, I have not seen it, but think that the plan of one Judge to the District Court would be an objectionable one to most people in the Northern states - and the joining the Prov of Maine to N. H. districts no less so to N. H. - However the Acts may be finishd I hope & trust they will terminate in a system that will insure Peace and a happy Government.." John Langdon (brother of Woodbury Langdon) was a merchant, Delegate and Senator from New Hampshire. He was active and prominent supporter of the revolutionary movement, member of the Continental Congress 1775-76, participated in the Battle of Bennington and commanded a company at Saratoga and in Rhode Island. Member of the State senate 1784, President of New Hampshire, 1785, 1788; again a member of the Continental Congress 1787, delegate to the Federal Constitutional Convention in 1787; member of the state ratifying convention elected to the United States Senate and served from March 4, 1789 until March 3, 1801. He was elected the first President pro tempore of the Senate on April 6, 1789, in order that the Senate might organize to count the electoral vote for President and Vice President of the United States.

Notation on ffep "OT". Very good. NEWTON'S FINAL EDITION OF THE OPTICKS: Fourth edition, corrected. "This is the final edition, revised by Newton." "This new edition is carefully printed from the Third Edition, as it was corrected by the Author's own Hand, and left before his Death with the Bookseller." – Advertisement. "Newton's contributions to the science of optics – his discovery of the unequal refractions of rays of different color, his theory of color, and his investigations of 'Newton's rings,' to mention only a few of the most noteworthy – place him among the premier contributors to that science. … Today we recognize that his work on optics offers unique rewards in its exciting, innovative conjunction of physical theory, experimental investigation, and mathematics, and in the revealing glimpse that it provides of a crucial period in the evolution of experimental science." – Alan E. Shapiro, The Optical Papers of Isaac Newton: Volume 1, (1984), p. xi. This edition contains the full set of 11 Observations, and 31 queries or questions. As written by the respected Newton scholar, Richard S. Westfall, "From the perspective of natural philosophy, the 'Quaestiones' were the first of the series of speculations that form the warp on which he wove the fabric of his scientific career. Throughout his life, his speculations turned on a limited set of crucial phenomena which seem to have functioned in his eyes as keys to the understanding of nature. Nearly all of them appear in the 'Quaestiones.'" – Westfall, p. 96. "Whereas the Principia is a mathematical work involving intricate geometrical relationships and only a handful of major experiments, the Opticks overflows with detailed accounts of reflection and refraction, the separation of white light into the colors of the spectrum, the manner of the eye's operation, the formation of images by lenses, the colors of the rainbow, the construction of the reflecting telescope, and much more. Unable to contain himself, the author introduces many subjects that have little or nothing to do with the behaviour and analysis of light: metabolism and digestion, the circulation of the blood, the creation of the world and the Great Flood of Noah, the scientific method, even the images that haunt the dreams of madmen. Moreover, Newton wrote the Opticks in English, making its contents accessible to a far wider audience than the Principia, whose classical Latin had stymied many potential readers. His friend John Locke, who had only months to live, was baffled by the earlier work, but read the Opticks 'with pleasure, acquainting myself with everything in them.'" – Gale E. Christianson, Isaac Newton, Oxford University Press, 1996. Babson, 136 (v. I, pp. 68-9); Gray, Newton, p. 37. See: Richard S. Westfall, Never at Rest, p. 96.

"Whereas the Principia is a mathematical work involving intricate geometrical relationships and only a handful of major experiments, the Opticks overflows with detailed accounts of reflection and refraction, the separation of white light into the colors of the spectrum, the manner of the eye's operation, the formation of images by lenses, the colors of the rainbow, the construction of the reflecting telescope, and much more. Unable to contain himself, the author introduces many subjects that have little or nothing to do with the behaviour and analysis of light: metabolism and digestion, the circulation of the blood, the creation of the world and the Great Flood of Noah, the scientific method, even the images that haunt the dreams of madmen. Moreover, Newton wrote the Opticks in English, making its contents accessible to a far wider audience than the Principia, whose classical Latin had stymied many potential readers. His friend John Locke, who had only months to live, was baffled by the earlier work, but read the Opticks 'with pleasure, acquainting myself with everything in them.'" â€" Gale E. Christianson, Isaac Newton, Oxford University Press, 1996. Babson, 136 (v. I, pp. 68-9); Gray, Newton, p. 37. See: Richard S. Westfall, Never at Rest, p. 96. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Hibernian Patriot: Being a Collection of the Drapier's Letters to the People of Ireland, Concerning Mr. Wood's Brass Half-Pence

      A. Moor [i.e. William Bowyer], [London] Printed at Dublin. London Reprinted 1730 - First London edition. [viii], 264 pp. 8vo. First London Edition of the Drapier Letters. The first London edition of Swift's pseudonymous letters, first issued separately in 1724, then collected first by the Dublin edition of 1725 under the title Fraud Detected.In 1722, the English Parliament granted to one William Wood, mine-owner and iron-monger, the right to coin the extravagant sum of £100,000 in copper half-pence. Swift was outraged at what he perceived not only as a swindle to advance the interests of a particular moneyed class, but also as one more example of the monstrous tyranny exercised by England over the Irish. In the persona of a humble shopkeeper, Swift attacked the proposal on several sound economic grounds and pushed his conclusions to their logical and absurd consequences. Having calculated the real (as opposed to the nominal) value of Wood's half-pence, and taking it for granted that bad money drives out good, Swift concludes hilariously that a lady going out shopping will need to be "followed by a Car loaded with Mr. Wood's money," and that a banker will need twelve hundred horse to carry the cash he needs in his bank. But there is also a thunderously Swiftian appeal to freedom: "Were not the people of Ireland born as free as those of England? How have they foreited their Freedom? Is not their Parliament as fair a Representative of the People, as that of England? And hath not their Privy Council as great or a greater share in the Administration of publick Affairs? Are they not subjects of the same King? Does not the same Sun shine over them? And have they not the same God for their Protector? Am I a Free-Man in England, and do I become a Slave in six hours by crossing the Channel?"Swift's "Drapier" urges a boycott of Wood's coins upon his countrymen: "If a Madman should come to my Shop with a Handful of Dirt raked out of the Kennel, and offer it in payment for Ten Yards of Stuff, I would Pity or Laugh at him, or, if his Behaviour deserved it, kick him out of my Doors. And if Mr. Wood comes to demand any Gold or Silver, or Commodities for which I have payed my Gold and Silver, in Exchange for his Trash, can he deserve or expect better treatment?"Swift's publication fanned the flames of controversy both in Ireland and England; and his victory was complete when by the end of August 1725, Wood's grant was withdrawn. "Precisely to what extent Swift had been instrumental in bringing it about can never be assessed. It is certain that he had many able helpers, as it is clear that the populace gave him pre-eminence, so that for the rest of his life he was the people's idol?"

Edition originale rare de ce livre singulier. Malgré le titre, ce "roman moderne" est en fait une pièce de théâtre tout à la fois utopique, parodique et facétieuse. La scène se passe dans l'île d'Aea en Asie mineure où l'auteur suppose que vivent de nouvelles Amazones qui veulent s'affranchir du joug du Grand-Seigneur. Mais cette guerre se passe "sans aucun carnage. On n'emploie pour vaincre que les mouvemens impétueux, qu'alument dans l'âme des humains la séduisante passion de l'Amour, les surprises de l'Ivresse, & l'insatiable fureur de courir à l'Argent". Cette pièce de théâtre est suivie de non moins curieuses dissertations qui forment la seconde moitié de l'ouvrage : Notes politiques sur la chevalerie militaire, longue dissertation historique sur la chevalerie, les chevaliers errants et les coutumes de l'adoubement ; et une singulière dissertation dans laquelle l'auteur prétend que c'est Hercule qui a découvert l'Amérique où il situe le jardin des Hespérides. L'édition de 1738 du même ouvrage porte un titre modifié mais il s'agit de la même édition dont seul le titre a été changé. Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.

        Autograph Letter Signed Portsmouth, July 10, 1789 to John Langdon, New York City

      folio, two pages of a four page bi-folium, some splits along folds, remains of sealing wax on integral address leaf, docketed "Jo Whipples Letter." In very good, clean and legible condition.Joseph Whipple, collector of customs at Portsmouth, (brother of General William Whipple 1730 - 1785 revolutionary War General and Signer from New Hampshire) writes to John Langdon (1741 - 1819) Senator and first President pro-tem of the Senate, thanking Langdon for his help and influence in obtaining a post in the new government and comments upon the recent establishment of the Federal court and judicial system. Langdon, a Portsmouth native, was the right person to ask as he was also a friend of the President, George Washington. "Dear SirI have the Honour this moment to receive your favour of the 5th & am much obliged by your kind assurances of attention to my business and also for having seasonably lodged my name with the President - I should have wrote now to him agreeably to your intimation but am discouraged from the consideration of his having no personal knowledge of me and that it might on that account appear and interested application which might operate to my disadvantage - and I conceive also that your influence with the President on which I have rested my expectation is such as I need wish no other. - But if you conceive that it would be of use to hand my name with your recommendation to Mr. Vice President, to Mr. Morris, Mr. R H Lee, Mr. Dalton, your Colleagues or others as you may think proper, I should consider myself further & greatly obliged - but I think your interest requires no aid - as it will of course be represented by you that I am in the office of Colltr. - To some of the names that I have mentioned I am known - others of them were formerly either officially connected or intimately acquainted with my Brother on which account I should have applyd to them for their influence - I imagine also that all appointments will be completed tin a few days if not by this. - You will hear that the Judiciary bill is not relishd this way, I have not seen it, but think that the plan of one Judge to the District Court would be an objectionable one to most people in the Northern states - and the joining the Prov of Maine to N. H. districts no less so to N. H. - However the Acts may be finishd I hope & trust they will terminate in a system that will insure Peace and a happy Government.."John Langdon (brother of Woodbury Langdon) was a merchant, Delegate and Senator from New Hampshire. He was active and prominent supporter of the revolutionary movement, member of the Continental Congress 1775-76, participated in the Battle of Bennington and commanded a company at Saratoga and in Rhode Island. Member of the State senate 1784, President of New Hampshire, 1785, 1788; again a member of the Continental Congress 1787, delegate to the Federal Constitutional Convention in 1787; member of the state ratifying convention elected to the United States Senate and served from March 4, 1789 until March 3, 1801. He was elected the first President pro tempore of the Senate on April 6, 1789, in order that the Senate might organize to count the electoral vote for President and Vice President of the United States.American National Biography, vol. 13, pp.138-139Dictionary of American Biography, vol. 5, pt. 2, pp., 587-588
