        Historical Account

      1730. First Edition . HUMPHREYS, David. An Historical Account of the Incorporated Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. London: Joseph Downing, 1730. Octavo, early 19th-century full paneled brown calf expertly rebacked, raised bands, red morocco spine label. Housed in custom slipcase. $3800.First edition of this report of missionary activity in North America, with two engraved folding maps by Herman Moll, one of the Carolinas and the other of New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.“This work— which every collector of American history should possess— is illustrated with two maps, one of Carolina, the other of New England, &c” (Allibone I:919). “The whole of this volume relates to the proceedings of the missionaries in different parts of North America, together with the state of religion there” (Rich, 44). It contains separate chapters on the education of slaves and relations with Native Americans, including accounts of uprisings against the English colonies: “In the Year 1715, the Indians adjoining to the [South Carolina] Colony, all round from the borders of Fort St. Augustino to Cape Fear, had formed a conspiracy to extirpate the white people. This war broke out the week before EasterÂ… about 300 souls made their escape to CharlestownÂ… some few families fell into their hands, who were barbarously tortured and murdered.” (97-98). The two folding maps by Herman Moll are dated 1730 and depict both the English and Indian settlements and towns in the regions. Moll is also known for his maps in DampierÂ’s Voyages (1698) and for his famous “Beaver Map,” formally titled “A New and Exact Map of the Dominions of the King of Great Britain on ye Continent of North America” (1715). Howes H795. Sabin 33801. Bookplate of American poet and pioneering female art critic Mariana Griswold van Rensselaer. Contemporary signature of S.

The first, The Temple Beau, shows Fielding's promise, while the second—published just three years later—reflects Fielding's transition to a confident and accomplished playwright, fully in command of his talents. ""In March 1728 he left England for some months to study literature at the University of Leiden, in the Netherlands, and to see something of Europe. When he returned to London in January 1730 he had to carry his next play, The Temple Beau, to Goodman's Fields, a new playhouse with a much inferior company of actors located in the City. The comedy was nevertheless well received; Fielding's career as dramatist had begun in earnestÂ… The Miser (1733), a lively adaptation of Molière's L'Avare, was by far Fielding's most successful play in this classic form; it held the stage for years to come"" (DNB). Wing N4473, T49927. Early ink title page owner signature in The Temple Beau.Fine condition.

Avvertenza: Qui dentro ho riposto copie di mie lettere di buone feste e di condolianza a miei Parenti, Ministri, Prelati ed Amici affinché nelle occasioni che mai potessero incontrare averli presenti. P-V-D-C Duca di Pirayno e Principe di Castellazzo. Vi sono lettere di Personagi magnati - di Vicerè di Sicilia, e copie di mie lettere, a tutti li suddetti.

      [Sicilia, Messina?, Castellazzo?], 1730. [42] p., 29 piena pergamena con risvolto di chiusura a quaderno, alle sguardie splendida carta decorata con motivi floreali a sbalzo e fondo in oro. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. Il titolo P-V-D-C probabilmente sta per Principe Vincenzo Denti di Castellazzo. Legatura in piena pergamena con i titoli manoscritti in bella grafia d'epoca. Segue la prima carta col titolo (uguale a quello della legatura ma con meno dettagli), al verso della prima carta è elencato con grafia di altra mano un elenco di opere sulla scrittura e sulla Sicilia. Alla seconda carta: Instruzione per un Secretario di alcun titolato o Cavaliere Riguardevole in questo Regno di Sicilia di Mons.r Gio. Noceti Prelato domestico di S. Santità. Alle carte seguenti l'autore insegna a scrivere al Papa, all'Imperadore, al Re nostro Signore, ad un Cardinale, al Gran Maestro della Religione di Malta, alla Repubblica di Venezia, alla Repubblica di Genova, al Duca di Savoia, al Gran Duca di Toscana, ai titolati di qualità, ai Prelati, A' religiosi, A' Cavalieri, a Ecclesiasitici, con soggetti di condizione inferiore, con persone di ultima classe, Regole per le cortesie da usarsi à i titoli. Sottoscrizioni, Regole da osservarsi in lettere da scriversi a Dame. Apparentemente non sembra che oltre all'opera del Noceti vi siano contenute o trascritte lettere del Duca di Pirayno e Principe di Catellazzo come dichiara l'autore, all'ultima pagina una nota informa che le lettere che qui trovasi accluse (ma che in realtà non sembrano essere state trascritte, probabilmente era in progetto essendovi 10 pagine bianche) sono conservate nell'archivio del conte. Nemmeno sembra che l'opera del Noceti qui contenuta manoscritta in bella grafia d'epoca sia mai apparsa a stampa. Bernardino Noceti, nativo di Messina ma toscano per linea paterna e romano per materna, era prelato domestico della Santa Sede Apostolica e per più di 30 anni aveva esercitato la carica di arcidiacono e canonico della Metropolitana chiesa di Messina. Giovanni Valdina nel suo testamento lo nomina unitamente a d. Carlo Gregori esecutore testamentario, fidecommissario e amministratore della sua eredità. Il Noceti viene anche designato come primo titolare del grado prelatizio e, quindi di fatto, unico possessore dell'immenso patrimonio destinato alla Prelatura Valdina. Giovanni Valdina avrebbe voluto scriverne i capitoli di fondazione mentre era ancora in vita, ma l'aggravarsi delle sue condizioni di salute lo convinsero a delegare alla loro formazione lo stesso abate Noceti che, però, li formulò solo molti anni dopo la morte del principe. I responsabili di questo ritardo sono identificati dallo stesso Noceti in Anna Valdina che con le sue pretese ereditarie gli ha impedito di recarsi a Roma tenendolo occupato in liti giudiziarie presso i tribunali di Palermo e in Giovan Battista Valdina, cugino spurio del principe che, abitando con lo stesso, aveva dopo la sua morte, con falsificazioni e ruberie, sottratto "somme di denari, gioie, argenti, mobili, libri, e scritture di gran rilievo". Capitoli e regole della Prelatura, scritti da Noceti nel 1724, ma pubblicati 4 anni più tardi, prevedono il trasferimento a Roma di tutti gli effetti e le rendite. Appartengono alla Prelatura i capitali e le rendite dei Monti esistenti in Roma, quelli esistenti in Venezia nell'ufficio del Magistrato della zecca e del sale, quelli esistenti in Parigi sopra l'ospedale della città e che prima erano dei genovesi Francesco Maria Spinola e di suo padre Andrea, e tutti i crediti esistenti nella stessa Roma e nella città di Genova. La ricchissima Prelatura, con sede in Roma, aveva lo scopo di rappresentare la Sicilia presso la Santa Sede.

        Ars sanandi et curandi. Sammelband mit vier medizinischen Traktaten. 4 Werke in 1 Band.

      Offenbach König bzw Paris Horthemel Format: 8° Mit gestochenem Frontispiz Titel in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt Honiggelber Pergamentband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel oxidiert leicht angestaubt kaum fleckig 1730 - *** Erste Ausgaben. Seltener Sammelband mit vier Schriften des 1659 in Ansbach geborenen und 1734 in Berlin gestorbenen Mediziners und Chemikers Georg Ernst Stahl, der 1687 Hofarzt des Herzogs Johann Ernst von Sachsen-Weimar und 1716 Leibarzt des Preußenkönigs Friedrich Wilhelm I. wurde. Als Mediziner war Stahl ein wichtiger Vorläufer der Psychosomatik, warnte vor der Überbewertung rein anatomischer, physikalischer und chemischer Prozesse bei der Krankheitserforschung und -behandlung. Ausgehend von einem &#132;Unbewussten", das sowohl auf die Psyche wie auch den Körper einwirkt, wurde er zu einem wichtigen Vorläufer Sigmund Freuds: Die Seele baue den Körper fort, lehrte er. Da alle Bewegungen und Veränderungen ihren Sitz in der Seele haben, so folgerte Stahl, müssten auch alle Krankheiten letztendlich seelischen Ursprungs sein. Er erkannte die Nützlichkeit des Fiebers als Abwehr-Reaktion des Körpers auf Infektionen. Der vorliegende Sammelband enthält eine Schrift des Mediziners Gideon Harvey (1636-1702), des Leibarztes des englischen Königs gegen den Gebrauch des Chinin und die Entgegnungsschrift Stahls (vgl. Hirsch-Hübotter III, 79). Es folgen Stahls Forschungsergebnisse über die Krampfadern und das dem Sammelband stets beigegebene Literaturverzeichnis medizinischer Schriften mit Preisangaben. I.

        Les Amazones Révoltées. Roman moderne en Forme de Parodie sur l'Histoire Universelle, & la Fable. Avec des Notes Politiques sur les Travaux d'Hercule, la Chevalerie-Militaire, et la Découverte du Nouveau-Monde, &c. &c. &c.

      Rotterdam: Don Luis le Maingre ..., 1730. Duodecimo, with both errata leaves; contemporary French mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands, crimson morocco label. First edition and very rare. Although rarely commented on, this work concludes with the hypothesis that Hercules discovered the golden apples in continental America.Although the bulk of the work is a zesty farce with an exotic cast of courtiers, pirates, and a Turkish eunuch, its great interest lies in the extensive notes on the figure of Hercules, which include a concluding account of the so-called Monde par Hercule.In the classical account of Hercules' twelve labours, he is commanded to retrieve the golden apples from the garden of Hesperides, which lies far to the north of Europe. This story is denounced by Boucicault as a transparent fiction: Hercules, far from doing a deal with the father of the Hesperides Atlas, in fact found them himself, whilst visiting America. The story is that, having sailed through the straits of Gibraltar, Hercules was caught in a fierce storm, and blown towards the east, discovering a vast and fertile country in the uncharted seas. Although Boucicault hints darkly that the Greeks had their own reasons for maintaining this deception, he concludes 'l'Enigme s'est enfin dévelopée, après que Christofe Colomb, l'Alcide des Espagnes, ût fait en 1492 la Découverte de ce Nouveau-Monde'.The work was known to Barbier only from the later 1738 edition. Some ten copies of this 1730 edition are listed on Worldcat, but there are very few sales records in recent decades. An excellent copy.

        Le Nouveau Gulliver, ou Voyage de Jean Gulliver, fils du Capitaine Gulliver...

      Paris: Clouzier & F. Le Breton, 1730. Two volumes,, but a really pretty set in contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments, double red labels. First edition of this sequel to Swift's Gulliver's Travels by the first French translator of the work.The impressive success of Desfontaines' heavily bowdlerised 1727 translation of Swift's famous novel no doubt provided the impetus to this unofficial sequel. The fiction that it was translated from an original English text is exposed in the preface, where its relationship to Gulliver's Travels is said to be akin to that of Fénélon's Aventures de Telemaque with the Odyssey.As Gove comments, this is one of the very few works to use Gulliver as a model for imitation (unlike the endless array of Robinsonades after Defoe) and thus occupies an important position in the history of Swift's novel. Here, Gulliver's son Jean travels to four lands. He is at his most spirited describing the Island of Babilary in which women are superior, but the other lands have some of the inventiveness, if not the venom, of Swift: the hunch-backed Crump-backs who regard their own form as the ideal, or the Letalispons, who 'live to be 120 yet always look attractive because they begin a second innings at 60' (Dunmore).The work quickly went through many editions, including translation into English as early as 1731. Faint waterstains to a few leaves of the second volume.

American editions were also published ca. 1778-1793. 'A farrier is as useful a trade as any other in His Majesty's Dominions; we commonly call him Doctor, because he professes physick and surgery among horses; and some are good sensible men; but people who are able to give their sons learning, seldom bind 'em to that trade; so that farriers are oblig'd to take such apprentices as they can get, without regard to their education. ..... Thus many are illiterate, and some totally incapable of improvement. ..... The design therefore of this little treatise, is to inform gentlemen, 1st. what methods are best to be us'd if their horses fall lame. 2dly. What medicines are proper to give 'em when sick. 3dly. How to direct the manual operations, and escape the impositions of ignorant men'. [Prefece].

Inside with only minor foxing. The plates clean and fresh. Jacques Callot was a baroque printmaker and draftsman from the Duchy of Lorraine (an independent state on the north-eastern border of France, southwestern border of Germany and overlapping the southern Netherlands). He is an important person in the development of the old master print. He made more than 1,400 etchings that chronicled the life of his period, featuring soldiers, clowns, drunkards, Gypsies, beggars, as well as court life. He also etched many religious and military images, and many prints featured extensive landscapes in their background. nnHis most famous prints are his two series of prints each on "the Miseries and Misfortunes of War". These are known as Les Grandes Misères de la guerre, consisting of 18 prints published during 1633, and the earlier and incomplete Les Petites Misères ? referring to their sizes, large and small (though even the large set are only about 8 x 13 cm). These images show soldiers pillaging and burning their way through towns, country and convents, before being variously arrested and executed by their superiors, lynched by peasants, or surviving to live as crippled beggars. At the end the generals are rewarded by their monarch. During 1633, the year the larger set was published, Lorraine had been invaded by the French during the Thirty Years' War and Callot's artwork is still noted with Francisco Goya's Los Desastres de la Guerra (The Disasters of War), which was influenced by Callot, as among the most powerful artistic statements of the inhumanity of war.

        Historia General de los hechos de los Castellanos en las Islas i Tierra Firma del Mar Oceano [Decades 1-8]... [with] Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales... [and] GARCIA, Gregorio: Orígen de los Indios del Nuevo Mundo é Indias Occidentale...

      Madrid: Imprenta Real, 1730 (Garcia: Francisco Martinez Abad, 1729). The three works comprising altogether ten parts bound together in four volumes, folio, with engraved title-pages (incorporating portraits of missionaries, generals, governors, and soldiers, views of America, etc); with fourteen engraved maps; eighteenth-century mottled calf, crowned monogram "N" in compartments of spines; two fitted quarter calf boxes. A very attractive set of the best edition of Herrera's Decadas. This massive work, one of the primary accounts of the early Spanish conquest of the New World, was compiled by Herrera who as official historiographer to Philip II, III and IV of Spain had privileged access to the archives; his ambitious and comprehensive compilation was originally published in Madrid between 1601 and 1615 in eight "decades" spanning the years 1492 to 1554; this second edition is preferred since it was amended and enlarged with the addition of the substantial "Tabla General de cosas notables" here bound at the end of volume IV. The full series of Decadas is accompanied here, as sometimes, by Herrera' s important Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales as well as, unusually, by Gregorio Garcia's Origen de los indios de el nuevo mundo. The three works thus cover the native populations of South America, the conquest and colonisation by the Spanish, and the "modern" European approaches to the Pacific Ocean and the western coasts of South America pioneered by the Dutch.The Decadas represent a highly important collection of Spanish narratives of exploration and conquest, drawing on some sources no longer extant, which is an essential work for the study of the discovery, conquest and colonization of America. The engraved titles are divided in 10 to 14 compartments depicting different scenes from the conquest by the Spaniards, or portraits. The accounts of Cabeza de Vaca, Coronado, Cabrillo, De Soto, and many others are included. "There are copies of this edition dated 1727, 1728, 1729 and 1730, which are all alike except as to date - the work not having been completed till that year - the publishers changing the dates as circumstances suggested" (Sabin). Only the first three decades were ever translated, although the work as a whole was "of the greatest importance for the history of the conquests, colonization and progress of the Spaniards in America... " (Hill). The Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales has a different engraved title and separate foliation and includes 14 maps. First published in several languages in 1622, it contained the first true publication of the journal of the Le Maire-Schouten expedition around the world. Sailing through Lemaire Strait, and rounding Patagonia via Cape Horn, this voyage had an enormous effect on future navigation. The series of maps that accompany the Descripcion includes one of the Pacific with the Straits of Magellan clearly mapped and another of the East Indies with good details of the Solomon Islands and of the north coast of New Guinea in both.Garcia's Origen de los indios ("a work of vast erudition": Sabin), an unusual addition to this set, is in its second and best edition, edited and updated by Andrés González de Barcia (who also edited the Decadas). It is important as a pioneering study of the native Americans. Garcia theorised that the American Indians were descended from old world peoples including the Chinese and the Tartars. "But all his learning on this subject is of less value than the positive facts concerning the native tribes, which he drew partly from his own experiences in the New World, and partly from a MS. work by Juan de Vetanzos (one of the companions of Pizarro, and a man specially skilled in the native languages), which was in the possession of Garcia, and which has never been published. The fifth book of Garcia's work contains the native Indian accounts of their origin, and is divided into sections which treat separately of the various distinct tribes of Mexico and Peru... " (Maggs Bros, 1921).This excellent set has on its spines repeated crowned "N" monograms - which we have not been able to identify. This copy was once confidently described as having come from Napoleon's library, but the monograms certainly date from the time of binding, and the binding is simply too early. Ollivier does not record any other suitable candidates among the French book-collecting aristocracy. The order in which the various components are bound is slightly odd: the set opens with Garcia's Origen, which is followed by the second Decada, while the Descripcion and the first Decada are bound following the fourth Decada in the second volume. A number of leaves in the set are bound out of order (not surprisingly given the complexity of the book's make-up) but all are present. A full collation is available on request. Bindings very slightly rubbed;some neat restorations.

        Methodus differentialis: sive tractatus de summatione et interpolatione serierum infinitarum.

      London: William Bowyer, 1730. First edition, rare, of Stirling's masterpiece in which he "went very far towards developing the calculus of finite differences" (Goldstine). "Next to Newton I would place Stirling as the man whose work is specially valuable where series are in question" (Gibson). "The Methodus differentialis: sive tractatus de summatione et interpolatione serierum infinitarum (London, 1730) of James Stirling (1692-1770) is surely one of the classics of numerical analysis. It contains not only the results and ideas for which Stirling is chiefly remebered today (the Stirling numbers, Stirling's interpolation formula, Stirling's formula for ln n!), but also a wealth of material on transformations of series and limiting processes. Inverse factorial series, especially hypergeometric series, are much in evidence and asymptotic series (including that for ln n!) also appear. Interpolation and quadratures are discussed and there is an impressive collection of calculations throughout to illustrate the efficacy of the methods presented" (Tweddle, p. 1). ABPC/RBH record only the Macclesfield and Stanitz copies since 1977. The Methodus consists of a relatively brief introduction followed by two parts, on summation and interpolation. In the introduction, Stirling discussed the transformation of series with the aim of speeding their convergence. This often involved conversion of factorials into powers, and he drew up tables for this purpose. He then showed that the columns of the tables giving the expression of powers in terms of factorials involve what are now called 'Stirling numbers' in his honour. Part one of the main text continues the investigation of the rate of convergence of series. It is part two of the book, devoted to the interpolation of series, that contains his most famous result, now called 'Stirling's theorem', giving an asymptotic formula for factorials (this was obtained slightly later by Abraham de Moivre). This formula proved crucial for subsequent developments in probability theory. "Stirling's work was founded on Newton's 'Methodus Differentialis', which was published in 1711 under the editorship of William Jones. In this short treatise Newton presents six propositions and a scholium in which he discusses differences, interpolation formulae and quadrature ... Stirling's first contribution to this area was his paper 'Methodus Differentialis Newtoniana Illustrata', which was communicated to the Royal Society on 18 June 1719. The first part is, as the title suggests, essentially an explanation of Newton's treatise. In the second part we have an early attempt at a problem which he pursued with conspicuous success in his later book, namely the transformation of a slowly converging series into one which converges rapidly to the same sum. He also gives there a rather obscure account of a process for finding limits, to which he returns with greater clarity in the book (Proposition 30 - the Stirling-Schellbach algorithm); this may be explained in terms of interpolation ... "By 1725 Stirling had settled in London, where he became a teacher and later a partner in Watt's Academy in Little Tower Street, Covent Garden. He was soon established in the scientific community and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1726. Apparently he had already been working on the book at this time, but his duties at the Academy did not allow rapid progress and the final production was rather rushed. For example, on 22 July 1729 he wrote to his brother John Stirling: "I designed to have spent some time this summer among you, but on second thoughts I choose to publish some papers during my leisure time which have long lain by me." And, in a letter to Gabriel Cramer written in September 1730 and accompanying copies of the book for Cramer and Nicholas Bernoulli, Stirling said of its contents: "The first part has been written 8 or 9 years ago, so that if I were to write it again I should scarce change anything in it. But indeed that is more than I can say for the second part, because there was not above one half of it finished, when the beginning of it was sent to the Printer. And altho' I am not conscious of any Errors in it but typographical ones, yet I am sensible that it might have been better done" ... "Stirling's book was well received by his contemporaries. For example, Euler expressed his admiration for the work, De Moivre employed some of Stirling's results to improve earlier work of his own and to develop his own series for ln (n - 1)!, and MacLaurin discussed or referred to several of Stirling's results in his Treatise of Fluxions (1742) ... However, the book's influence has extended over more than two and a half centuries. A vast number of articles have been devoted to "Stirling's formula" ... and the modern development of combinatorial theory has ensured a central place for the Stirling numbers" (Tweddle, pp. 1-3). Stirling had matriculated at Balliol College, Oxford in 1711, but his Jacobite sympathies prevented him taking the oaths necessary to continue his scholarship and he left Oxford in 1716 without graduating. He then spent several years in Venice, after which he was known as the Venetian. Newton encouraged him to return to London and actually paid for his return journey in 1724. But despite Newton's assistance, Stirling was never able to secure an academic post in Britain, and he spent much of his later life re-organizing and managing the Lanarkshire lead mines. There is also a large paper issue: Bowyer's records show 475 copies printed on crown paper and 26 on royal (ESTC). "The work was sufficiently important to be reprinted twice during Stirling's lifetime, in 1753 and 1764, and to be published in an English translation in I749" (DSB). Parkinson p 14.
