        Ouvrages de mathematique.

      Den Haag, Gosse und Neaulme, 1731.. (26 x 19,5 cm). (4) 399 S. Mit gestochener Titelvignette, großer gestochener Kopfvignette und 26 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Dekorativer Lederband der Zeit mit reicher Rückenvergoldung. (Memoires de l'Academie Royale des Sciences).. Zusammenstellung von insgesamt neun Werken von de Roberval, darunter: Observations sur la composition des Mouvemens; Projet d'un livre de mechanique; De recognitione aequationum; De resolutione geometrica planarum & cubicarum aequationum; Traite des indivisibles; Epistola ad R. P. Mersennum; Epistola Evangelistae Torricellii ad Robervallium etc. - Der französische Mathematiker de Roberval (1602-1675) "was one of the leading proponents of the geometry of infinitesimals, which he claimed to have taken directly from Archimedes, without having known of the work of Cavalieri. Moreover, in supposing that the constituent elements of a figure possess the same dimensions as the figure itself, Roberval came closer to the integral calculus than did Cavalieri... The numerous results that he obtained in this area are collected in the 'Divers ouvrages', under the title of 'Traite des indivisibles'. One of the first important findings was, in modern terms, the definite integration of the rational power, which he most probably completed around 1636... The other important result was the integration of the sine, and he formulated by virtue of it the problem of which he was so proud: Trace on a right cylinder, with a single motion of the compass, a surface equal to that of a given square... the most famous of his works in this domain concerns the cycloid" (DSB). Er entwickelt unabhängig von Torricelli eine Methode zur Bestimmung von Tangenten an Kurven und unabhängig von Cavalieri eine Indivisibilien-Methode (Cavalieri'sches Prinzip) zur Bestimmung von Volumina und Flächen. - Papierbedingt gering gebräunt, Tafeln etwas stärker. Die letzten Blätter in der rechten unteren Ecke mit schwachem braunen Fleck. Vorsätze erneuert. Ecken und Rücken sorgsamt restauriert. Insgesamt gut erhaltenes und dekoratives Exemplar. - DSB 11, 486; Sotheran, Suppl. I, 1715 (diese Ausgabe): "A very rare work"

Still a solid set. * This important early history includes a subject index and an interesting index of the books and manuscripts used by the author. "In this historical account of the government of England, of its senates and councils or parliaments, I take a cursory view of them in other nations, as introductory to the British, Saxon and Norman national councils or Parliaments, and so gradually slide down from Antiquity to modern times, shewing the conformity of modern with ancient constitutions; how ancient Laws and Decrees have been, some of them confirmed, some amended, and some totally abrogated, according to the wisdom of the several ages, thereby in a short history giving the reader a large view into times past.": Preface, Volume One, v-vi. The second work treats the history of two early feudal courts. Court Baron arbitrated dealings between the lords of manors and their tenants. Court Leet was a court held by the right of franchise in which a private lord oversaw land under a sheriff's jurisdiction. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School (1909) I:839.

        The New Testament Of Our Lord And Saviour Jesus Christ Translated Out of the Latin Vulgat by John Wiclif, S T P Prebendary Of Aust In The Collegiate Church Of Westbury, And Rector Of Lutterworth, About 1378 To Which Is Prfixt A History Of The Several Translations Of The H Bible And N Testament, &C Into English, Both In Ms And Print, And Of The Most Remarkable Editions Of Them Since The Invention Of Printing

      London: Sold by Thomas Page and William Mount ..., 1731. First printing in book form of Wycliffe's translation of the New Testament. Two fine engraved portraits, one folding plate. [2], iv, [4], 108, [2], [3]-156, viii pp. 1 vols. Folio. Old calf, rebacked and recornered in the 20th century to style in brown calf, raised bands, lettered in gilt. Three bookplates on front pastedown, modest tanning, some very tiny worm tracks in extreme edges of the portrait of Wycliffe, divisional title and first leaf of text of the NT nearly detached at gutter and a bit creased, light occasional foxing, a few short tears at the fore-edge of the folding plate, otherwise a very good copy. First printing in book form of Wycliffe's translation of the New Testament. Two fine engraved portraits, one folding plate. [2], iv, [4], 108, [2], [3]-156, viii pp. 1 vols. Folio. Accompanied by the extensive prefatory "History ..." by John Lewis. At Wycliffe's instigation, a group of scholars prepared this translation into Middle English of the New Testament from the Latin Vulgate in 1380, and though popular, it circulated only in manuscript until this edition. Over two hundred manuscript versions are known, many of them of the revised version prepared by John Purvey. In 1409 the Wycliffe version was condemned as heretical and outlawed in Britain. This edition was published by subscription, and the edition, including some copies on large paper, is reported to have consisted of only 160 copies. An advertisement leaf, a list of subscribers, and a page of errata follow the dedication. The frontispiece portrait of John Lewis and the portrait of Wycliffe are signed in the plate by G. White, and the engraved folding plate is based on the frontispiece of the Cranmer Bible. While well represented in institutions, copies of this edition are uncommon in the market place: ABPC records only three appearances since 1999, and only one of them, the Macclesfield copy sold in 2006, was complete with both the portraits, as is this copy.

        Histoire du baianisme ou de l'heresie de Michel Baius

      French-Latin Edition. Each chapter heading is adorned with an unsigned band. The book is followed by a section on clarification of baianisme and another containing documents. Full red morocco time. Back with five nerves ornate coffered and gilded finials. Gold on the caps and cuts roulette. Triple blind fillets coaching dishes. Back somewhat insolated. Cap head shaved. Corners slightly bumped. The baianisme developed by Michel Baius was early condemned as heresy because it followed closely the famous Council of Trent in 1542 and contradicted many precepts. For his thoughts on grace and original innocence of man, the refutation of original sin, free will that comes from the first innocence of man, the baianisme is the foundation on which will be built in Jansenism early seventeenth. Add that the theologians who toiled for renewal of Christian thought, focusing their work on a rejection of scholastic legacy of Thomas Aquinas and a legacy of Saint Augustine considered themselves no other than Catholic. History is divided into five books: the first two relate the life of Michel Baius, doctrine and actions that have been taken against him; in the third, Du Chesne defends the Jesuit Lessius; the fourth and fifth parts condemnation of Jansen and other major figures of the Church such as M. de Saint-Cyran, Father de Barcos or Father Gibieuf. The work was blacklisted by a decree of March 17, 1734 and therefore knew not reprinted.

        Le Brutus de Monsieur de Voltaire, avec un Discours sur la Tragédie.

      Paris, J. F. Josse 1731 - 8vo, privilège leaf at end, modern boards, some lowers edges uncut The book which started "Shakespearomanie" the history, the, of Shakespeare in European culture dates from the "barbarian of genius" began with his Mort de Brutus (1730) [i.e. produced on the stage in 1730, but published for the first time in the above edition] and the memorable eighteenth chapter of his Lettres sur les anglais (1734) secured to Shakespeare thence forth the respect, if not yet the homage, of cultivated Europe (C.H. Herford : A sketch of the history of Shakespeare's influence on the Continet, p. 6) - - - First edition. Voltaire wrote the first act of his play Brutus in English during his 1726-29 visit to England while staying at Wandsworth with Fawkener, and finished the play in French in Paris. It was first performed in Paris on 11 December 1730 when its portrayal of tension between patriotism and love seemed its principal tragic point, and had its triumphal success there sixty years later on the 17th (Mirabeau was present on this occasion) and the 19th of November 1790, when its possible political message met revolutionary aspiration. The essay on Tragedy, addressed to Lord Bolingbroke, his English patron, included here, gives some views of Voltaire on English and French playwriting.The Brutus of the play is Lucius Junius Brutus, that is not the tyrannicide of Julius Caesar, a play which Voltaire saw and greatly admired, but a member of the same clan who lived some five hundred years earlier, one of the first two consuls in 509 BC. He had played a leading part in expelling the Tarquins, the former royal family, from Rome. The Tarquins conspired to return; Brutus' two sons were implicated, motivated in one case by love. Brutus had them executed. The story is variously told by Livy and by Dionysius Halicarnassus and figures in many mentions in Roman literature. There were three other printings of the play in 1731: the second by E. J. Ledet at Amsterdam; the third with a title-page giving our publisher J. F. Josse, Paris, with 80 pages of main text instead of our 110, but in fact printed in England and attributed by ESTC to the printer Woodfall; and the fourth, with 'Londres' on the title page, a location thought improbable (no publisher is given).

Very good+ condition with excellent interior. Corners bumped. Binding in very good and firm condition. Two entries in ink on endpaper and titlepage. Few contemporary annotations in ink on the rear endpaper and furthermore on two pages within the text. Very scarce and sought after edition. Humphrey Llwyd (also spelled Lhuyd) (1527?-1568) was a Welsh cartographer, author, antiquary and Member of Parliament. He was a leading member of the Renaissance period in Wales along with other such men as Thomas Salisbury and William Morgan. His library, together with those of his patron, the Earl of Arundel and his brother-in-law, Lord Lumley, formed the basis of the Royal Collection of books; currently housed at the British Library. His motto was Hwy pery klod na golyd ("Fame lasts longer than wealth") Llwyd was born at Foxhall, his family's estate in Denbigh, the county seat of the then county of Denbighshire. His father, Robert Llwyd, was descended from Harry Rossendale, henchman and grantee of the Earl of Lincoln. The first of the family that came to Wales from England appears to have been Foulk Rosindale, from whom Foxhall, or Foulk's Hall, was called. He married into the family of the Llwyd's of Aston, the probable source where his descendants derived their name, as well as their extraction from Einion Evell of the 12th Century. Einion Evell, Lord of part of Cynllaith, resided at Llwyn y Macn, in the parish of Oswestry. He and his twin brother, Cynwrig Evell, Lord of Y Glwyegl in Maelor Gymraeg, were the illegitimate sons of Madog ab Maredydd, Prince of Powys, by Eva, daughter of Madog (ab Einion Hael) ab Urien of Macn Gwynedd, ab Eginirab Lies ab Idnerth Benvras, Lord of Maesbrwg. As a young man, he was educated at Brasenose College, Oxford and fared so well in the sciences and engineering that he was given a position as a physician to the Earl of Arundel during the Earl's tenure as Chancellor of the university. He was Minister to Parliament for East Grinstead during Elizabeth I's first parliament (1559). In 1563, Llwyd returned to Denbigh and lived at Denbigh Castle at the permission of Sir John Salusbury who was then the Lord of the Manor of Denbigh. That year, he was elected MP for Denbigh Boroughs during Elizabeth's second Parliament where he promoted an act allowing the translation of the Bible into Welsh. From 1566 he toured Europe, including Brussels, Augsburg, Milan, Padua and Venice. In Antwerp, he learnt from, and collaborated with, map maker Abraham Ortelius. In 1567, when Llwyd returned to Denbigh, he was given a stipend from the Crown to create the first printed map of Wales. Llwyd died in 1568 and is buried in Whitchurch, a small chapel on the outskirts of Denbigh. A Victorian-era monument honoring him still exists in St. Marcella's Church, Denbigh. (Wikipedia) Works No copy exists of Llwyd's translation into English of Agostino Nifo's De auguriis; Llwyd's other work includes: An Almanacke and Kalender, conteynynge, the daye houre, and mynute of the change of the Moone for ever, and the sygne that she is in for these thre yeares, with the natures of the sygnes and Planetes.
