Newton, Isaac.
Pr. by S. Powell, for George Risch, George Ewing, and William Smith, 1733. First edition printed in Ireland. In addition to being a physicist, mathematician, and natural philosopher, Sir Isaac Newton was something of a Biblical scholar as well, as shown by the present exegesis on apocalyptic texts. His analysis generally reads as being practical in nature -- as the New Catholic Encyclopedia (X, 428) says, "Newton's writings on apocalyptical prophecies were not mystical or millenarian in any sense, but more exercises in deciphering cryptograms." They comport with our sense of him as someone who believed in the scientific method! => Printed with a two-page, small-type list of the subscribers to this Irish edition, some entries noting a profession or a locality.

Anno Regni Georgii II Sexto [1732] An Act for enabling His Majesty to apply out of the Sinking Fund for establishing the Colony of Georgia in America English PARLIAMENT. London: printed by John Baskett, 1733. Folio, disbound; pp. (i), 443-455 [8 leaves]. The earliest official printing of the act "for establishing the colony of Georgia in America," the last of the original thirteen colonies.This act authorized a grant of £10,000 "for establishing the colony of Georgia in America, to be applied toward defraying the charges of carrying over and settling foreign and other Protestants in the said colony" (p. 448). The creation of a haven for Protestants was, of course, an abiding interest of England; it was especially important in this case because the colony was intended to counter-balance Catholic Spain's colony in Florida. The funds were allocated to the colony's trustees, who had been given the original grant of land between the Savannah and Altamaha rivers earlier in 1732. They hoped to create a self-sufficient colony made up of compact villages and yeoman farmers. This act represents the first of many financial contributions to the trustees. The trustees soon abandoned yeomanry, however, and embraced black slavery. This act, in fact, also authorizes funding for the protection of the stations of the Royal African Company which would supply slaves (p. 451). Printed in black letter. This copy is from the Sessional Volumes of Parliament, the earliest official printings available. Acts printed prior to 1796 are extremely scarce, since the maximum number printed "only slightly e … [Click Below for Full Description]

La Barre de Beaumarchais, Mr. de; Bernard Picart
Amsterdam: Printed for Zachariah Chatelain, 1733. First edition in English. Folio, 47 cm. Bound in contemporary red Russian leather. Rebacked. Some rubbing to edges. [6], XXIV, 153, [3] pages. 60 engraved plates by Picart, captioned in English, French, German and Dutch. Scattered foxing. "Bernard Picart was the outstanding professional illustrator of the first third of the eighteenth century, an age during which the designs for the finest illustrated books were typically drawn by leading painters. He worked for the most part in the fading baroque tradition, but there are elements in his immense production which herald the new age. When his diverse accomplishments are finally catalogued and analyzed, his standing as a book artist will be greatly enhanced" Ray (p. 7). Brunet V, 696; Cohen-de-Ricci 531. The text newly written by Antoine de La Barre de Beaumarchais to describe Picart's engravings, originally by C. Bloemaert and others, published as 'Tableaux du temple des muses' with text by Michel de Marolles, based on the work by Jaques Favereau. Illustrated with Picart's magnificent engravings, each within an ornate border, depicting fables of the ancient world, many from Ovid. The text is by Antoine de La Barre de Beaumarchais.

Folio (368 x 222 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, orange morocco label, red speckled edges. 2 engraved folding plates and folding table. Shelfmark to pastedown. Very minor rubbing, short splits at joint ends though still firm, light toning to title page, contents with a few instances of faint soiling but generally clean and bright, small chip to first folding table. A very good copy. First edition, one of 30 large paper copies; William Bowyer's records show a further 220 copies were printed on smaller paper. Roger Bacon wrote the Opus Majus, his most important work, in the 1260s, but it went unpublished until the present edition. Samuel Jebb used the manuscript held by Trinity College Cambridge, resulting in the seventh part, absent in the manuscript, being omitted. The full seven parts were not published until 1897, seven centuries after its composition. The Opus Majus stands as one of the supreme philosophical and scientific achievements of the Middle Ages. "Bacon believed that the innate wisdom granted to humanity by divine authority could only be developed through reason backed by experience. Experimental science was to be used to certify conclusions of deductive reasoning in the existing speculative sciences, to add to existing sciences new knowledge unobtainable by deduction, and to investigate the secrets of nature beyond the bounds of the existing sciences.

First edition, 4to, (227 x 170 mm), 54pp., some light staining and dust soiling, cont. manuscript additions and alterations to the text in ink, bound in later full vellum.Benjamin Mackerell (bap. 1685, d. 1738), Antiquary, Librarian, and Plagiarist. "In addition to his career as an antiquary, Mackerell is worth remembering for the work he undertook in his unpaid office of Librarian of the Norwich Public Library, between 1721 and 1732, and possibly later. This collection was already more than a century old, when Mackerell was first admitted to membership in 1715. The following year, he presented the library with a copies of Davila's History of France and Grimston's History of the Netherlands both in folio. The Norwich City Library was founded in May 1608, when the Norwich Assembly set aside three rooms in the New Hall in St Andrew's parish for the provision of a library for local preachers. No funds were made available for book purchases however other than the provision of a donor's book. Gifts of books were soon forthcoming, particularly from the aldermen and other city dignitaries, and by 1617 more than one hundred and twenty volumes had been added to the collect. Over the next three centuries, the library continued to operate, although its fortunes tended to wax and wane. After the initial enthusiasm following it establishment, the collection was neglected and the library shut up, until 1657, when it was revived by the Presbyterian Minister John Collinges. Similarly, a further period of neglect towards the end of the century, was followed by the appointment of an enthu … [Click Below for Full Description]

(ex-libris mss. Deguerle 18e) Dernière édition ancienne de "L'astrée", au texte rajeuni et abrégé par l'abbé Souchay. Fameux roman à succès, qui modela les esprits et les moeurs des salons précieux du XVIIe siècle. Un roman fleuve qui marque l'entrée du roman dans l'ère classique et qui fut le modèle des oeuvres de fiction du XVIIe siècle. Toutefois, il avait perdu son attrait à cause de l'évolution du genre romanesque et des modifications du langage. Cette édition rare est restée inconnue à Cohen et à Pereire, et Reynaud ne la cite qu'avec une collation erronée, indiquant dix figures seulement. Elle date du séjour en Angleterre des émules de Watteau : Rigaud et Gravelot, marquant l'unique collaboration de ces deux artistes. L'illustration, loin d'être innocente est de bout en bout originale. La publication originale s'échelonna de 1607 à 1628. Dans cette édition on trouve au dernier volume une "Lettre de M. Huet à Mlle de Scudéry touchant Honoré d'Urfé et Diane de Châteaumorand", des "Réflexions nécessaires pour l'intelligence de l'Astrée... tirées des oeuvres diverses de M. Patru" et la "Clé de l'Astrée".

Maroquin rouge, roulette dorée encadrant les plats avec armes dorées au centre, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, roulette dorée sur les chasses et les coupes, tranches dorées, quelques minimes frottements et un petit accroc en coiffe supérieure (reliure de l'époque). Ce manuscrit de la première moitié du XVIIIe siècle est le compte-rendu des travaux de triangulation que Jacques Cassini entreprit en 1733 pour mesurer la perpendiculaire à la méridienne de Paris, continuant ainsi l'œuvre de son père Jean-Dominique Cassini. Ces Mémoires furent lus en 1733 et 1734 à l'Académie des Sciences et imprimés. La méridienne de Cassini, un rôle historique important. En 1669, en France, l'abbé Picard va être amené à mesurer un degré de méridien, dans le but défini par Colbert de cartographier la France de façon géométrique; la région "prototype" est la région parisienne, l'emplacement de la méridienne se trouve à l'est de Paris, entre Malvoisine et Sourdon-Amiens. En 1683, "Sa Majesté ordonne aux Mathématiciens de l'Académie des Sciences de continuer l'entreprise [de Picard] et de prolonger vers le Septentrion & vers le Midi jusques aux confins du Royaume, une Ligne Méridienne qui passât par le milieu de l'Observatoire de Paris." Dès 1683, donc, les travaux débutent: Jean-Dominique Cassini, chargé des opérations, se dirige vers le Sud et de La Hire part vers le Nord. Après la mort de Colbert (septembre 1683), les travaux s'arrêtent, reprennent en 1700-1701, avec, pour aider son père la participa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Letters Concerning The English Nation Voltaire C. Davis London, 1733 "HIS MOST IMPORTANT EARLY PHILOSOPHICAL WORK... THE FIRST BOMB HURLED AGAINST THE ANCIEN RÉGIME": SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF VOLTAIRE'S LETTERS CONCERNING THE ENGLISH NATION, 1733 First edition of Voltaire's commentary on English institutions, published one year before the French first edition, the first published work to relate the tale of Newton's falling apple. Voltaire ("an approximate anagram of the name Arouet") fled to England in 1726 following arguments in Paris with powerful political figures, "where he remained till early 1729, learning English, reading Shakespeare, Milton and the Restoration dramatists, making the acquaintance of Walpole, Congreve, Gay, Berkeley and associating with Bolingbroke, Pope, and Swift" (Harvey & Heseltine, 753). "Much struck by the admirable English phlegm and toleration of free thought and eccentricity, he wrote the Letters, the most sympathetic of critiques" (PMM 204). "He became an ardent apostle of the science, tolerance and common sense of England. These resulting Letters form his most important early philosophical work. The book has been called the first bomb hurled against the Ancien Régime. In its high praise of English institutions it leaves no doubt that Voltaire is attacking, by ironic contrast, French despotism and the corruption of the French Church. The book created such a scandal that it was soon condemned and copies burned by the hangman in June, 1734. A warrant was issued against Voltaire but he succeeded in escaping.

Very ligt brownspotting or dusting to some leaves. Armorial book plate to inside of front board (Richard Perryn Esq.). Perryn's owenership signature to title-page. A large copy with good margins, printed on heavy, fine paper. (16, -including preface, contents, advertisements), 253, (1), (18, -Index) pp. ¶ The important actual first edition of this highly celebrated key work of the Enlightenment, in which the anecdote of how Newton discovered gravity (the story about Newton and the falling apple) appeared for the first time, together with the description of the difference between the physical world view of the English and the French (the "plenum" and the "vacuum") . This seminal work, in which Voltaire famously depicts British philosophy, science, society and culture, in comparison to French, can be viewed as the Enlightenment equivalent to Tocqueville's "Democracy in America". This series of essays, which is based on Voltaire's experiences when living in England, was actually written by Voltaire mostly in English, which he mastered to perfection. It has often been presumed that the first edition of the work was that published in French in 1734, but actually, the present English edition constitutes the actual first appearance of the work as well as the version that is closest to Voltaire's intention, as the French language version is the re-written one, and the English version the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eisenberg, [Friedrich Wilhelm] von
La Haye, P. Gosse & J. Neaulme, 1733. Oblong folio (398 x 250 mm). Engraved title, letterpress title printed in red and black, (3), 55 (instead of 56) ff. (lacking fol. 37) with 54 (instead of 55) hand-coloured engravings of horses and 4 engravings of horse tack (numbered 1-7). Period half brown calf over marbled boards with giltstamped red spine label. A truly royal copy of Eisenberg's famous riding school, which boasts beautiful illustrations of horses and horsemen (repeated from the 1727 first edition), engraved by B. Picart. Arabian horses in particular are lauded as "the most beautiful produced by the Orient. They are exceptionally fine animals, especially those from the hills of Mokha [...] Arabian horses are full of fire and vigour in general and are possessed of a great natural agility [...] Their start is like lightning, and so they are incomparable for racing and tournaments, for they are skillful as well as swift". Baron Eisenberg was one of the most famous equestrians of his day and served royalty throughout Europe as a riding instructor. - Wants a single plate (no. 37, "Le Superbe") and explanatory text (passage in a straight line after the German fashion), otherwise an excellent copy in full near-contemporary colour. Provenance: gift from Prince Gustaf of Sweden (1736-92, later King Gustav III) to Claes Julius Ekeblad (1742-1808), son of the agronomist countess Eva Ekeblad, the first female member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and of Claes Claesson Ekeblad, with autograph ownership to engraved title: "j'ai eu ce livre de S.
