        Refutation Des Erreurs De Benoit De Spinosa, etc.

      Francois Foppens 1731 - 12mo. Contemporary 1/4 calf with marbled boards. [4] (of [10]), 158; 183 [i. e., 483], [2] pages, including half-title; lacks the 3 preliminary leaves following the title. Internally generally good, with clean, unmarked pages. Contents: Principally containing Fenelon?s Refutation de Spinosa; also includes, Vie de Spinosa / [par M. Colerus]; Refutation de Spinosa / [par le comte de Boulainvilliers] ; Extrait du Nouvel atheisme renverse, ou refutation du sisteme de Spinosa, / par Dom Franc?ois Lami; Extrait d'une lettre de Monseigneur de Fe?nelon . sur la Refutation de Spinosa .

Tchemerzine (1977) III, 232b; Linde 107. Provenance: Stamp of Alfonso Cassuto on title. Much of the work is devoted to an attempt to combat the perceived atheism of Spinoza?s philosophy. Paul Janet suggests that Bayle?s Dictionary was Fenelon and other French critics? principle source of information on Spinoza?s work, and that the loss of Spinoza?s subtleties in the reduction was the root of much of the criticism.

      for W. Innys and R. Manby, and T. Woodward, London 1731 - 1731, (6) viii (4) 376 pp., 19 engraved plates by S. Gribelin (Vol. I); 1733, xxii, (26), 361, (23) pp. (Vol. II). 8vo (19.5x12.5cm). Interior browned, Vol. II with the leaf before the title announcing the Royal Society's authorisation of publication, some dampstaining to the end. Ownership inscription H. Pemberton on flyleaf of Vol. 1. Contemporary full calfs, rebacked. PMM 189, Horblit 45b. - FIRST EDITION of Vol. 2 and SECOND EDITION of vol. 1. Hales applied his training in biology and mathematics (including physics) to make important scientific investigations presented in these separately published volumes. The first volume, Vegetable staticks, Hales describes his investigations of plant physiology, including the movement of water in plants and determining the three factors of water movement: root suction, root pressure and leaf suction. He also established that plants lose water continuously during transpiration through leaves. His quantitative measurements of these phenomena enabled him to show the rate of transpiration varied with temperature. Hales established that plants do not have true circulation system, and developed techniques of measuring the varying growth rates in different plant structures. The second volume, or Haemastaticks, 'contains the studies on blood pressure which make Hales one of the founders of modern experimental physiology. The application of the principle of the pressure-gauge or manometer enabled him to measure blood pressure during the contraction of the heart. He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today . Hales' work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J.L.M. Poiseuille in 1828' (PMM). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Amsterdam, Isaak Tirion 1731 - Two parts in one volume. Eight books to the first part, nine to the second. Folio. Pp. xii-xxii (partly set in double columns), 32 (list of chronological events), 33-36 with a Privilege by the Staten van Holland, 1552 numbered columns, (33) index, set in 3 columns, (4) concordance, (2) index of Greek and Latin authors, (1) errata. Half-title, large allegorical frontispiece by van Mieris, finely engraved by van Bleyswyk, with a Privilege of Joannes vander Linden of Leiden engraved at bottom, dated 1729; title-page printed in red and black, with large, handsome engraved device; title to the second part. Plus 7 double-page copper engraved maps, one of which is a folding plan of Jerusalem Temple with extended legend in letterpress on two text panels. With fine copper engraving of the Holy Altar and one table to the text. Large engraved initial to head of each book, followed by a smaller one; tail-pieces. Footnotes, side-notes, appendices.

In a very fine internal condition. Exceptionally well preserved interior with crisp leaves and a crisp, practically unused set of maps. ~ Second edition. The first edition was printed in 1723 by Joannes vander Linden of Leiden, who first intended to publish the work in a decent quarto but ended with a two-volume, rather thick and clumsy octavo (he even contemplated a three-volume set but gave up the idea). In 1729 he decided to sell the publishing rights to Isaak Tirion of Amsterdam, who in 1731 published this edition, the first (and last) to be printed in royal folio, measuring 41 x 28cm. Tirion could now reset the work in elegant and practical double-column format, add a large, magnificant frontispiece, and allow the handsome maps the freedom to remain unfolded double-page generous folios.

      London: Printed and Sold by Tho: Bowles next ye Chapter House in St. Pauls Church-yard, John Bowles, at the Black Horse in Cornhill and by I. King at ye Globe in ye Poultrey [sic] near Stocks Market, [1731].. Copper-engraved map, with period outline color, on two joined sheets. Overall size of joined sheets: 41 1/4 x 24 3/4 inches. Good condition apart from expertly repaired tears to folds. Very good. A fine copy of state four (of five) of the famous Beaver map of the English and French colonies in North America. "One of the first and most important cartographic documents relating to the ongoing dispute between France and Great Britain over boundaries separating their respective American colonies...The map was the primary exponent of the British position during the period immediately following the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713" - DEGREES OF LATITUDE. The British colonies according to British claims are outlined in red, with the French very lightly outlined in blue. All territory south of the St. Lawrence River and eastern Great Lakes is shown as British. Numerous notations relating to territorial claims, Indian tribes, the fur trade, and the condition of the land cover the face of the map. This map shows the early 18th-century postal routes in the British colonies, and is frequently called the first American postal map. There are four insets, including a large map of coastal South Carolina, and a plan of Charleston. At lower left is a map of Florida and the Deep South, which is based on a map by Thomas Nairne, the Indian agent for South Carolina. The most striking feature is the large vignette which gives the map its popular name. It consists of an early view of Niagara Falls, with a colony of beavers at work in the foreground. Pritchard holds that the beaver "was an appropriate image for the North American map for two reasons: the animal's importance to the fur trade, and its industrious nature."

        A New and Exact map of the Dominions of the King of Great Britain on the Continent of North America

      London., 1731. containing Newfoundland, New Scotland, New England, New York, New Jersey, Pensilvania, Maryland, Virginia and Carolina. According to the Newest and most Exact Observations By Herman Moll Geographer. 2 sheets joined. Size: 1335 x 625 mm. Copperplate engraving, with original outline colour. Some skilful paper restoration to map folds and to worm holes. Excellent overall condition. Born in Germany, Herman Moll emigrated to London in 1680. His cartographic works enjoy a high reputation and are well known for their accuracy and their style. This map of the British dominions in North America is perhaps his most famous work, widely known by its nickname the "beaver map" after the beautiful large cartouche depicting an assembly line of Canadian beavers, seen working industriously and harmoniously cutting down trees, and subsequently damming a river in order to make their lodges, a richly symbolic message for the emerging North American nation. The beavers suggest that, by controlling their environment and by working as a team, wealth and its associated benefits can be achieved for all. It is also worth noting that beaver pelts, and the fur trade in general, were important early components in the economy of North America. The cartouche itself is derived from the earlier works of Hennepin (c. 1697) and de Fer (1713). Moll's map was hugely important from the historical standpoint of depicting and highlighting long running Anglo-French border disputes. All territory south of the St. Lawrence River, and territory east of the Great Lakes was deemed to be British. This tremendous map by Moll is one of the first large scale maps showing British developments in North America and, in addition, also shows for the first time American postal routes. There are four large and impressive insets highlighting British interests, and a delightful decorative map dedication to the Hon Walter Dowglass, captain general and chief governor of the Leeward Islands in America. The map also contains a wealth of comment and information concerning Native American tribes, colonial claims, settlements, and such like. This map is an important rendering of early British colonialism and as such is highly prized and sought after.

      Thirty-two folding engraved plates & one folding printed table. Title in red & black. 8 p.l., xlviii, [12], 193 pp.; 192, [14] pp. Two parts in one vol. Large 4to, cont. calf (joints very slightly rubbed), spine nicely gilt, contrasting morocco lettering piece on spine. Leyden: J. & H. Verbeek, 1731. First edition. This book contains the first description of the pyrometer, an instrument for measuring the expansion of solid bodies under the influence of heat. Like many of Musschenbroek's books, the Tentamina contains fine illustrations and is concerned with experiments in measuring humidity, magnets and electricity, air pressure, the structure of ice, heat and cold, capillarity, optics, the motion of sound, etc. 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'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.

      Excudebat Josephus Cominus,, Patavii, 1731 - 2 voll. in-4° (245x175mm il primo vol. e 250x175mm il secondo), pp. XX, 436, (4); XVI, 184 + 178, (2) contenenti i "Dialogi de Reipublicae Dignitate". Legatura coeva p. pergamena (titolo manoscritto al primo vol. in oro su tassello al secondo). Il primo vol. ha i tagli azzurri e le sguardie decorate a piuma di pavone, il secondo i tagli marmorizzati. Imprese cominiane ai frontespizi, stemma dei Volpi più volte ripetuto. Al primo vol., ritratto del Vida inciso su rame f.t. dall'Heylbrouck da invenzione di Antonio Campi. Dedicatoria del Vida alla città di Cremona. Testatine, finaletti e iniziali istoriate in xilografia. Bell'esemplare. Pregiata edizione cominiana delle opere poetiche latine dell'umanista cremonese; "This seems the best edition of Vida's works" (Di Cesare). Comprende: Christiados, Libri VI; Hymni de rebus divinis; Poetocorum libri III; Bombycum libri II; Scacchia ludus; Carmina diversi generis. La prefazione e gli argomenti della "Cristeide" sono del Botta, quelli della "Poetica" sono invece del Tartesio. Da segnalare la presenza del celebre poemetto scacchistico, che occupa le pp. 97-121 del secondo vol. L'opera, edita primamente nel 1527, incentrata su simulazioni di partite fra Apollo e Mercurio ed altre divinità mitologiche, descrive il gioco in tutte le sue mosse principali, offrendo al contempo una garbata caricatura della mitologia classica. L'opera conobbe anche svariate versioni italiane con il titolo di "Scacchiade". Fra le altre opere, il "De Arte Poetica" che riprende l'esempio oraziano della trattatistica d'arte poetica versificata, mentre il "De Bombyce" è poema sul baco da seta. La "Christiade", poema latino in sei libri, steso su incitamento di Leone X, rappresenta invece uno dei primi esempi di poesia epica religiosa delle nostre lettere. Marco Girolamo Vida (Cremona, 1470-Alba, 1566), teologo ed ecclesiastico protetto da Leone X e da Clemente VII, nel 1533 fu eletto Vescovo di Alba e partecipò nei suoi ultimi anni al Concilio di Trento (dalla sua partecipazione al Concilio nacquero le "Constitutiones Synodales", aspra condanna della corruzione del clero). Di Cesare, Bibliotheca Vidiana, n. 43 (rimandiamo a tale bibliografia per la dettagliatissima descrizione). Federici, 137/1: "Ricca, bella e stimata edizione". Brunet, V, 1181: "Bonne édition, la plus correcte et la plus recherchée". Graesse, VII, 302. Olschki, 12459. Salimbeni, 264.

        Tratado dos Descombrimentos Antigos, e Modernos feitos ate a era de 1550

      Lisbon: Officina Ferreiriana, 1731. Quarto, xvi, 100pp., with a woodblock portrait of the author; front hinge starting yet a fine copy in nineteenth century marbled boards. Important account of early exploration to the year 1550, including descriptions of discoveries in the Americas by Cortes, Cabral, Pizarro, Cabot and Grenville. The author, Antonio de Galvao, served as a Portuguese governor of the Moluccas for a three year term from 1536 and was remarkable for his humane and enlightened administration. Galvao died in 1557 and his valuable manuscripts passed to the Royal archives where they were edited for the first edition of 1563. Howgego notes that information relating to the Moluccas and Spice Islands was omitted to protect lucrative Portuguese trading interests in the region. The first edition has always been very rare - indeed Hakluyt complained that he was unable to obtain it and relied on a copy sent from Lisbon when preparing his English translation of 1601. Likewise this second edition of 1731 fared little better as Sabin laments 'the greater portion having been destroyed by an earthquake.' The book is a chronological history of discovery from ancient times to the revelation of the Americas, the last included being the English expedition under Richarte Trebuli (Sir Richard Grenville). It is especially rich in information on the Conquistadores given the author's close association with the Royal Court and access to confidential information concerning lucrative interests in Central and South America. Significantly, Galvao did not discriminate against the English in compiling his account and includes Sebastian Cabot's discovery of North America. This edition of 1731 is beautifully printed, noteworthy for its striking title-page printed in red and black, elegant composition and a full length woodblock portrait of the author in armour.

        The Universal Etymological English Dictionary

      London: Thomas Cox, 1731. Thick octavo, numerous small woodcut illustrations throughout and appendix of proper names bound in; title-page thumbed with old manuscript notations, some water-staining of the preliminaries and appendix, two text leaves chipped at fore-edge margins with slight loss yet good overall in worn early nineteenth-century roan with gilt lettering. From Ludwig Leichhardt's library. Dictionary from the working library of Ludwig Leichhardt, with the rear endpaper inscribed 'L. Leichhardt' in the explorer's distinctive hand. Any relic or manuscript associated with Leichhardt is exceptionally rare: Hordern House has never before been able to offer any Leichhardt manuscript or signature, and they seem most uncommon on the market. As Leichhardt's inscription is undated it is not possible to ascertain whether he brought the dictionary to Australia upon emigrating in 1842 or if it was gifted to him after arrival. Nonetheless, it is particularly appealing to have a book from the library of such an avid reader, not least one which may have been used in Leichhardt's writing. That Leichhardt owned an etymological dictionary comes as no surprise given his considerable scholarly curiosity and his awareness that his journals would be published in English (as is well known the explorer Phillip Parker King helped prepare Leichhardt's journals of his overland expedition to Port Essington for publication). Nathan Bailey (d. 1742) was a pioneer English lexicographer, who first published his dictionary in 1721. Thie revised second edition is an enlivened publication filled with historical and anecdotal information on the history of words. The work is endearing for the numerous woodcut illustrations depicting heraldic devices, architectural details, military defences, mathematical principles, ancient deities and other diverse subjects.

      Wien, P.C. Monath, 1731.. 18,5 x 12 cm. 12 Bll., 456 S., 8 Bll. Pergamentband der Zeit mit Rückenschild (Ecken bestoßen).. *Potthast 1144. Hayn-Gotendorf I, 377. Erste Ausgabe eines bedeutenden Werkes mittelalterlicher Frauenmystik. - Agnes Blannbekin (ca. 1250-1315) war eine österreichische Mystikerin aus dem Orden der Beginen. Ihrem Beichtvater berichtete sie von Visionen und Ekstasen, u.a. dass ihr bei der heiligen Kommunion das "sanctum praeputium" (die Vorhaut Jesu Christi) auf der Zunge erschienen sei. [Hony soit qui mal y pense]. Der Beichtvater fand das zumindest so interessant, dass er ihre Visionen ab 1290 niederschrieb. Eine 1318 von dem Mönch Ermenrich angefertigte Abschrift dieses verschollenen Manuskripts der Agnesischen Visionen wurde erst Anfang des 18. Jahrh. in einer Wiener Bibliothek wieder aufgefunden und von dem benediktinischen Historiker, Philologe und Bibliothekar Bernhard Pez erstmals als Buch herausgegeben. Solch delikate Visionen und Ektasen einer Nonne (Braut Christi) erschienen der Kirche aber allzu anstößig. Das Werk wurde sofort nach Erscheinen verboten und auf den Index gesetzt, die gesamte Auflage vernichtet. Lediglich ein gutes Dutzend Exemplare sind der Zensur entronnen und werden in den besitzenden Bibliotheken heute meist in der Abteilung Rara geführt. - Der unerschrockene Herausgeber Bernhard Pez gilt als eine der herausragendsten Figuren der benediktinischen Wissenschaft in der Barockzeit. Er war ein Wegbereiter der Aufklärung in der Wissenschaft und beeinflußte nachhaltig die historiographische Tradition im süddeutschen Raum. Auf seinen Bibliotheksreisen entdeckte er ferner zahlreiche bedeutende mittelalterliche Manuskripte, u.a. die Mondseer Fragmente. - Insgesamt sauber und sehr gut erhalten.
