        THE ANALOGY OF RELIGION, NATURAL AND REVEALED, TO THE CONSTITUTION AND COURSE OF NATURE

      London: Printed for James, John and Paul Knapton, 1736.. [12],x,11-320pp. Large quarto. Modern half calf and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt label. Early ink name ("Thomas Ludlam") on title and transcription from Plutarch on the half-title (to all appearances in the same hand), faint seminary blindstamp in blank lower forecorner of title, with 4 digit ms. number on verso of title, occasional very minor dust marking to top margins, otherwise a large (25.5 x 20.5 cm), fresh, crisp copy. First edition of Butler's magnum opus, one of the signal works in the controversy against deism, and "one of the bulwarks of Christian apologetics ... Hume, who sent Butler his ESSAYS in 1741, ranked him with Locke and Berkeley as one of the originators in the experimental method in moral science ..."(PMM) and his influence was noted by figures as diverse as Mill, Newman, Gladstone and Macaulay. It would indeed be pleasant if the ownership signature conformed to Thomas Ludlam (1727-1811), the theologian, disciple of Locke, and staunch advocate of the application of reason in the analysis of religious experiences. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 193. GROLIER ENGLISH HUNDRED 44. ESTC T06797. NCBEL II:1856-7.

        Mechanica sive Motus Scientia Analytice exposita

      Thirty-two folding engraved plates. 8 p.l., 480 pp.; 4 p.l., 500 pp. Two vols. Large 4to, orig. boards (minor wear & foxing), entirely uncut. St. Petersburg: ex Typographia Academiae Scientiarum, 1736. First edition, and a fine set in original state, of Euler's first major publication and the first work to apply analysis to the study of mechanics. "In an introduction of the Mechanica (1736) Euler outlined a large program of studies embracing every branch of the science. The distinguishing feature of Euler's investigations in mechanics as compared to those of his predecessors is the systematic and successful application of analysis. Previously the methods of mechanics had been mostly synthetic and geometrical; they demanded too individual an approach to separate problems. Euler was the first to appreciate the importance of introducing uniform analytic methods into mechanics, thus enabling its problems to be solved in a clear and direct way... "This first large work on mechanics was devoted to the kinematics and dynamics of a point-mass. The first volume deals with the free motion of a point-mass in a vacuum and in a resisting medium; the section on the motion of a point-mass under a force directed to a fixed center is a brilliant analytical reformulation of the corresponding section of Newton's Principia; it was sort of an introduction to Euler's further works on celestial mechanics. In the second volume, Euler studied the constrained motion of a point-mass...In the chapter on the motion of a point on a given surface, Euler solved a number of problems of the differential geometry of surfaces and of the theory of geodesics."-D.S.B., IV, pp. 479-80. ❧ Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 103-04. .

      Bierens de Haan 642; WorldCat (4 copies); not in Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica. First German edition, with a new 10-page foreword by the inspector of hydraulic works on the Rhine in Hessen, of a detailed practical account of river flow (combining theory and practice) and the instruments the author and others had developed to measure it. Several figures in the large folding plate are devoted to the very sophisticated water-flow meter Brunings had developed and the catamaran designed to carry it. Others show his simpler lever meter, Henri Pitot's ingeniously simple tube meter, and other equipment invented by Francesco Domenico Michelotti, Leonardo Ximenes and other eighteenth-century pioneers of hydraulics. The translation is by Claus Kröncke.Brunings (1736-1805), a hydraulic engineer from Haarlem who played an important role in the prevention of silting and floods in the Dutch parts of the Rhine valley, first published the present work in Dutch in 1789. He is best remembered for his river-flow meters. In 1806, immediately after his death, the Dutch government acknowledged his important services by offering a prize for the best account of his life and work, but the winning entry by his friend and student F.W. Conrad was not published until 1827. Occasional minor foxing, binding somewhat worn. Good copy with generous margins.

        The Analogy of Religion, Natural and Revealed, to the Constitution and Course of Nature. To which are added two brief dissertations: I. Of personal identity. II. Of the nature of virtue.,

      London, printed for James, John and Paul Knapton, 1736. - Erstausgabe. - „Butlers große Sorge war das Vordringen des Deismus, der von Herbert von Cherbury seinen Ausgang genommen hatte; er erkannte, daß man es hier mit einem nicht unerwarteten Ergebnis zu tun hatte, das die Beseitigung der herkömmlichen Weltallvorstellung durch Kopernikus und Descartes‘ Vorarbeit für Newtons Idee der Naturgesetzlichkeit gezeitigt hatten. Um dieser Tendenz entgegenzuwirken, schrieb er, ohne es ausdrücklich zu sagen, seine ‚Analogy‘, und manche meinen, ihre Bedeutung sei zugleich mit dem Deismus dahingeschwunden [.]. Seine Aufnahme in unsere vorliegende Sammlung zeugt hingegen für die andere Auffassung, daß es in Wirklichkeit eines der Bollwerke christlicher Apologetik ist, und wenn ihm auch nicht immer gelang, was es beabsichtigte, so ist an seiner lebendigen Fortwirkung nicht zu zweifeln [.]. Hume [.] stellte ihn auf eine Stufe mit Locke und Berkeley als einen der Urheber der experimentellen Methode in der Moralphilosophie [.].

Erstausgabe. - "Butlers große Sorge war das Vordringen des Deismus, der von Herbert von Cherbury seinen Ausgang genommen hatte; er erkannte, daß man es hier mit einem nicht unerwarteten Ergebnis zu tun hatte, das die Beseitigung der herkömmlichen Weltallvorstellung durch Kopernikus und Descartes' Vorarbeit für Newtons Idee der Naturgesetzlichkeit gezeitigt hatten. Um dieser Tendenz entgegenzuwirken, schrieb er, ohne es ausdrücklich zu sagen, seine Analogy', und manche meinen, ihre Bedeutung sei zugleich mit dem Deismus dahingeschwunden [...]. Seine Aufnahme in unsere vorliegende Sammlung zeugt hingegen für die andere Auffassung, daß es in Wirklichkeit eines der Bollwerke christlicher Apologetik ist, und wenn ihm auch nicht immer gelang, was es beabsichtigte, so ist an seiner lebendigen Fortwirkung nicht zu zweifeln [...]. Hume [...] stellte ihn auf eine Stufe mit Locke und Berkeley als einen der Urheber der experimentellen Methode in der Moralphilosophie [...]. Gladstone zählte als seine vier Doktoren' Butler, Aristoteles, Dante und den heiligen Augustinus. Macaulay nannte ihn einen Mann von echtem Genie'" (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 357f.). - Die ersten Bll. mit kl. Randläsuren. Vortitelbl. m. kl. Randauriß (ohne Textverlust).

        An Enquiry into the Life and Writings of Homer

      London - J. Oswald, 1736. London - J. Oswald, 1736 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The second edition of Blackwell's pioneering study of Homer in bright condition with an original binding and good provenance. Bound in leather with gilt lettering. Includes in-text engraved illustrations and a fold-out map. With adverts for the publisher J. Oswald to the rear. With Joseph Cooks armorial bookplate on the front pastedowns, with view of Newton Hall. Reverend Joseph Cook (1759-1844) was vicar of Chatton and Shilbottle, and was sufficiently acquainted with the duke of Northumberland. (DNB)Blackwell's main fame is as a writer whose booksAn Enquiry into the Life and Writings of Homer (1735), Letters Concerning Mythology (1748), and Memoirs of the Court of Augustus (3 vols. , 175363)were pioneering studies in their fields and mark him as a major figure of the Scottish Enlightenment. The Enquiry was published anonymously in 1735 and went to five subsequent editions. Blackwell considered why Homer had been the supreme epic poet and concluded that his achievement was explicable almost entirely in terms of natural forces. Homer was the outcome of a specific historical context, social organization, geography, and climate, which combined to shape the culture he represented and which provided an ethos uniquely favourable to epic poetry. (DNB)Thomas Blackwell, 1701- 1757, was a Scottish classical scholar and historian. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The front hinge is cracked. There is some wear to the extremities, including some rubbing and wear to the top and tail of the spine. Internally the pages are bright with the occasional spot and mark. Overall the condition is good, with a very good interior..

Davis' (London), 5 3/8 x 9 1/4 inches tall, recently rebound in hand marbled boards over green archival Pearce goat, gold-bordered stripe to boards, gilt lettering to spine, xiii, [1], 170 pp. plus six magnificent engraved folding plates. Endpapers refreshed. Association copy: Prior owner signatures of two pioneering physicians - epidemiologist George Cleghorn, M.D. (1716-1789) and ophthalmologist Arthur Jacob, M.D. (1790-1874) - abbreviated biographies below - along with other pencil and ink notations to top of title page.

The English Short Title Catalog records only two copies in US institutions - one at the Library Company of Philadelphia, and the other at the National Library of Medicine. Reference: ESTC No. T113415. ~NNN~ One of the seminal works on the formation and development of human bones, this 1736 book by English physician Robert Nesbitt (circa 1700-1761) not only sets forth his discovery that there are two distinct methods of osteogeny, but also accurately characterizes the actual stages of the development of the human skeleton, with six illustrative plates 'whose accuracy has never been surpassed.' Nesbitt was born in London, and received his medical training at the University of Leyden, beginning his medical practice in 1721. In 1728 he received his M.D. from Cambridge. Though he delivered these lectures on osteogeny in the Anatomical Theatre of the Surgeons of London on July 1-2, 1731, it wasn't until five years later that his brother-in-law, James Douglas, successfully prevailed on Nesbitt to publish them, crediting Douglas in his dedication: 'It was by your persuasions alone that I was prevail'd on to revise, and thus make them public, after they had for some years lain by me disregarded.' It is in these lectures that Nesbitt first makes mention of the formation of bone in membrane as well as in cartilage, but these new ideas did not find their way into anatomical literature for almost 100 years. 'Human Osteogeny' was translated into German in 1753 by Johann Ernst Greding but contemporary German textbooks made no mention of it. References to it in English anatomical textbooks do not appear until 1848, in the fifth edition of Jones Quain's 'Elements of Anatomy' (Vol. I, p. cxlviii), where the process is described, with the comment, '. . . and so far his views are quite correct.' Provenance: Prior owners of this copy include: (1) George Cleghorn, M.D. (1716-1789), who signed the title page, was described by a medical historian as 'one of the most influential figures in eighteenth century Irish medicine.' Born in Scotland, Cleghorn studied under the tuition of Alexander Monro, primus, the outstanding Scottish physician of the day. In 1736, at the age of 20, Cleghorn was appointed surgeon to the 22nd Regiment of Foot and stationed on the Mediterranean island of Minorca, where he spent the next 13 years.

Humbly Addressed to the Honourable Members of the House of C-s, who Brought in Their Bill (Jan. 27) for Repealing the Statute of I Fac. Cap. 12. Concerning Witchcraft.

      Printed: and sold by John Millan next Will's Coffee-House near Scotland-Yard; and J. Roberts near the Oxford-Arms in Warwick-Lane, London 1736 - Hardcover. Octavo. l [50] + 102pp. Superb late seventeenth-century-style full leather craft binding by renowned London book-binder, Bernard C. Middleton. Brown speckled calf with inner and outer panels with blind-tooled rules and decorations to boards. Raised bands to spine, with gilt titling. One decorated headpiece. An unusual and apparently earnest attempt to prevent the passage of a British Parliamentary Act in 1735/1736 which repealed the exisiting laws against witchcraft, replacing them instead with fines or imprisonment on people who professed to be able to use magical powers. The book begins with a 47 page address (with Postscript) to Messrs. Conduit, Cross and Heathcot, Members of Parliament, by an author using the pseudonym Pisteuo-Daimon, who sets forth the reasons not to repeal the act. This is then followed by the book proper, most of which is written in the form of a letter or conversation with a woman, in which the anonymous author points out the reasons - mostly based on Scripture - why one should believe in the existance of witches, demons and evil spirits. No indication of the author is given, although there is a suggestion that the text had been previously published. Oddly the book is commonly identified in library catalogues and indeed practically everywhere else as the work of Titus Oates (1649 – 1705) famous for inventing and publicising a "Popish Plot" aimed at killing King Charles II. This identification is apparently based solely on the fact that Oates also wrote a book with a title beginning "The Witch of Endor" (1679) - however as can be judged from the full title of that work "The witch of Endor, or, The witchcrafts of the Roman Jesebel in which you have an account of the exorcisms or conjurations of the papists, as they be set forth in their agends, benedictionals, manuals, missals, journals, portasses, which they use in their churches [etc.] . proposed and offered to the consideration of all sober Protestants" this was really an anti-Catholic tract, and seemingly no relation to the present work, which is a genuine defence of the need to prosecute witches. From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the front free endpaper. Endpapers unevenly toned, flecking to page edges (not affecting margins), small almost invisibly-repaired hole at inner margin of title leaf, and the title of the book has been written in ink in a neat (early nineteenth century?) hand in the upper margin of page 1. Otherwise a beautifully fresh, clean, VG+ copy in a fine example of the book-binder's art. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

(2) Arthur Jacob (1790-1874), an Irish ophthalmologist who, in 1816, discovered a previously unknown membrane of the eye, since refererred to as membrana Jacobi, forming the retina. He also described Jacob's ulcer, and revived cataract surgery through the cornea with a curved needle.
