      Amsterdam.: Zacherie Chatelain,. 1737. hb. Tall folio. . Zacherie Chatelain (d.1723) was the father of Henri Abraham (1684-1743) and Zacherie Junior (1690-1754).

The original atlas was published in seven volumes between 1705 and 1720, with a second edition appearing in 1732. The maps were accompanied by information pertaining to cosmography, geography, history, chronology, genealogy, topography, heraldry, and costume of the world. The maps in the Atlas Historique were based on those of the French cartographer Guillaume De L'Isle, but were presented by the Chatelains in an encyclopedic format. The text is in French and is printed in two columns on the page with maps and other illustrations interspersed. Each map and table is numbered consecutively (see MapHist dot com). Our offering is described as "Tome II, Seconde Partie, ou Tome III" of the "Nouvelle Edition" which has been "Revue, corrigee, & considerablement augumentee".

        Discours sur les Ancres

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale,, 1737. Piéce qui a remporté le premier Prix proposés par l'Académie Royale des Sciences pour l'année 1737. Quarto (246 × 190 mm). Contemporary spotted calf, neatly rebacked to style, red morocco label, floral tools gilt to the compartments, French fillet panel gilt to the boards, double fillet edge-roll, marbled edges and endpapers. 24 folding engraved plates. A little rubbed, light browning, but a very good copy. First edition. Extremely uncommon, OCLC locates just two copies: Swiss National Library and the Bibliothèque municipale de Lyon. Bernoulli's paper was the winner of a competition set by the Académie Royale des Sciences to answer the question of what was the best possible shape for anchors. The volume also contains the second prize-winner, Tresaguet's "Memoire sur la Fabrique des Ancres", and the joint third place essays, Bernoulli's son Daniel's "Réfléxions sur la Meillure Figure a donner aux Ancres …", and le Marquis Poleni's "Dissertations Latines sur les Ancres …" Interesting and well-illustrated collection of papers exemplifying the French state's efforts to rationalize ship design and production during the later seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The feuding Swiss Bernoulli scientific dynasty were important contributors to a number of key areas of research, Johann or Jean made significant advances towards the development of calculus, while his son Daniel is particularly remembered for his applications of mathematics to mechanics, especially fluid mechanics, and for his pioneering work in probability and statistics.

        MISCELLANEOUS WORKS many of which are now first published.

      London, printed by J. Hughs, for J. Brindley; and C. Corbett, 1737.I. Pyramidographia; or a Description of the Pyramids in Egypt... II. A Discourse of the Roman Foot, and Denarius ... the Measures and Weights used by the Ancients... III. Tracts upon various subjects, Letters, Poems, and Observations in his Travels in Italy, Turky, and Egypt. IV. A Description of the Grand Seignor's Seraglio. To which are added, I. Reflections on the Pyramidographia, written by an anonymous Author, soon after the Publication of that Book. II. A Dissertation upon the Sacred Cubit of the Jews, and the Cubits of the several Nations; from the Dimensions of the greatest Egyptian Pyramid, as taken by Mr. Greaves, the antient cubit of Memphis is determined. Translated from the Latin of Sir Isaac Newton, not yet published... To the whole is prefix'd, an historical and critical account of the life and writings of the author. Published by Thomas Birth M.A., F.R.S. and member of the Society of Antiquaries. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION 1737, 2 volumes, complete set. 8vo, approximately 200 x 120 mm, 8 x 4¾ inches, title pages printed red and black, 6 engraved plates of which 5 are folding and 2 of the folding sheets bear 2 plates each, making a total of 8 engraved plates as required, (some copies were issued with 8 plates on 8 sheets of which 3 folding, possibly later issues with the 2 plate sheets cut in half), woodcut headpieces and decorated initials, pages: (6), lxxii, (2), ix, (1), 92, 89 - 356; (4), 359 - 540, (6), 591 - 800, the irregular pagination is present in all copies, collated and guaranteed complete, Parts I, II, III and IV have added title - pages, the first 3 dated 1736, Part IV dated 1737, bound in full antique calf, double ruled gilt border to covers, rebacked to style with raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label, edges speckled red, original endpapers retained. Covers and corners slightly worn, brief ink note on front endpapers which are age - browned, 2 leaves in Volume II have some pale brown staining, otherwise text and plates clean and bright, binding tight and firm. A very good set of a scarce work containing the first publication in any language of Sir Isaac Newton's study of the Sacred Cubit of the Jews. See Babson, Catalogue of the Works of Sir Isaac Newton, Second Supplement, page 20, No. 040. Newton's Dissertation is printed in Volume II from page 405 - 433 'Translated from the Latin of Sir Isaac Newton, not yet published'. According to Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, page 6, it is the most elusive of Newton's published works, known in just two editions, the 1737 Greaves' Miscellaneous Works and a 1744 edition in Latin. 'Newton's argument is clear, detailed and precise; it is also without direction, a study in pure metrology'. John Greaves (1602 - 1652) mathematician and astronomer was Savilian professor of astronomy at Oxford University but this collected edition of his works published posthumously reflects very wide interests, from chicken hatcheries to the Pyramids with just two articles on astronomy. Since Newton's Dissertation was based on Greaves' measurements of the Great Pyramid the editor Thomas Birch saw fit to publish it in the collection and it is included in the partial list of contents on the title page of Volume I. Greaves earlier works published on his return from his travels, A Discourse of the Roman Foot (1647) and Pyramidographia (1646), were found in Newton's library.

Beautifully bound in period-style full calf-gilt. “England, though often considered a country of horse lovers, actually only produced one early master of classical riding. William Cavendish, Duke of Newcastle, was a royalist who lived in exile until the restoration of King Charles II. During his exile he opened a riding school in Belgium. He wrote La Methode et Invention Nouvelle de Dresser les Chevaux… The illustrations are among the most beautiful to ever grace equestrian literature” (Deanna Ramsay). This was the first of Cavendish’s two important books on the subject of breeding and training horses, translated into French from his English manuscript and published in Antwerp in two issues, 1657 and 1658 (with many of the 1657 title pages having been altered by hand to also read “1658”). This first printing was largely destroyed by fire in the bookseller’s shop (Brunet), and is all but impossible to acquire. Offered here is the second edition of Cavendish’s first book, “a work long cherished by bibliophiles for the excellence of its typography and the quality of its illustrations, a work esteemed by countless generations of horsemen and revered by such masters as La Guérinière, Comte d’Aure and Steinbrecht, and a landmark of equestrian” (W. C. Steinkraus) that has been called “still the only really outstanding work on the subject written by an Englishman” (R. S. Toole-Stott). In it Cavendish discusses a wide variety of equine subjects, including the recognition of the age and disposition of a horse, the characteristics of various types of horses (e. g. Spanish, the Barb, the English horse, the Arabian), methods of maintenance, and instructions on proper riding. “You must in all Airs follow the strength, spirit, and disposition of the horse, and do nothing against nature; for art is but to set nature in order, and nothing else. ” Of the 42 wonderful double-page plates after Abraham van Diepenbeke, 24 depict the multiple stages Cavendish and his assistant Captain Mazin employed in training complicated maneuvers. The quality of the impressions “even surpasses those of the original edition” (W. C. Steinkraus). His second work, A New Method and Extraordinary Invention to Dress Horses (1667) is often confused with the 1657 Methode et Invention. It was first published in English, with translations into French and German appearing variously from 1671 to 1740, without any plates. In his preface to this second work, Cavendish makes clear that while it is “neither a translation of the first, nor an absolutely necessary addition to it, [it] may be of use by itself, without the other. ”See Huth, 23; Podeschi 26 and 49; Lowndes, 1663; Wing N884-87; Brunet I, 1700; Graesse II, 93. Minor light shallow dampstain to top margins of only first few plates and gatherings, small archival tape repair to scuff on page 108. Beautifully bound, a most handsome copy.

Fontanini continued improving it until, 30 years later he revised in completely. The work is divided in three parts: The first is on the origin and development of the Italian language; the second deals with its growth through the works that have been written in it, and the third part is a list of classical books in all genres with bibliographical and literary notes. The 1736 edition is so much enlarged that in a way it is a new book. The title has also changed from the earlier editions.

Vellum ca. 1737, gilt-lettered spine, library stamp of the Birmingham Medical Institute in gilt on front cover; preserved in a cloth slipcase. Moderate foxing and toning, faint library stamps on title and margin of plate mount, but very good.</p><p>First Edition of Albinus&#39;s treatise on the "seat and cause" of human skin color. This extremely rare pamphlet was the second of six remarkable three-color anatomical mezzotints produced by Jan Ladmiral for Albinus between 1736 and 1741 to illustrate pmaphlets by Albinus on different specialized subjects in anatomy. These plates represent the first application of the three-color printing process to medical illustration. The three-color process, which uses three separate plates inked in red, yellow and blue, was invented by German artist Jacob Christoph le Blon, but it was Ladmiral who was responsible for developing the process for the purpose of anatomical illustration (only one anatomical three-color plate produced by le Blon is known: a separate plate of the male genitalia issued in 1721.)</p><p>Ladmiral&#39;s plate for the Dissertatio secunda contains three figures illustrating Albinus&#39; preparations of two dissected portions of skin and a thumbnail, all taken from an African woman. The first figure shows Albinus&#39; division of the skin into two layers, the superficial epidermis and the deeper reticulum. Albinus found that the reticulum was the source of human skin color, but also noted that the epidermis, although of lesser brightness, was colored in proportion to the intensity of coloration in the reticulum. He viewed the human nail as "a continuation of the epidermis, with the reticulum beneath it in the area of transition" (Punt, Bernhard Siegfried Albinus (1697-1770): On "Human Nature," p. 89). Albinus also speculated on the historical causes of the colors of the various human races, citing both ancient and scriptural authorities.

        Londinium Antiqua. This Plan shews the ancient extent of the famous cities of London and Westminster as it was near the begining of the Reign of Queen Elizabeth.

      1737 - London, George Vertue, 1737. Eight sheets printed from pewter plates, dissected and laid on linen, total 690 x 1900mm. Paper lightly toned. The largest obtainable early map of Elizabethan London, derived from one of three known examples of an anonymous woodcut map of London c.1570, all now in institutions. Vertue, an antiquarian and publisher, saw an example in the possession of Sir Hans Sloane, and produced this copy in 1737. It was Vertue who first attributed it to Agas, a land surveyor. Agas published a map of Oxford that mentioned a companion map of London: this was enough evidence for Vertue to assign the map to Agas, an attribution that still survives. The style is much the same as Braun & Hogenberg, with the buildings shown in profile, and many of the details are shared. It is likely that both were based on a common source, but the Agas extends further north and shows St Paul's Cathedral without the spire. London Bridge has buildings on it, and The Globe and the Bull-Baiting Ring can be seen on the south bank of the river. The Royal Arms top left are those of James I, 1603-1625, but it is believed that these are a later addition to the woodblock Vertue copied. HOWGEGO: 8, and the introduction pp.7 - 8

        Jurisprudentia Vetus Ante-Justinianea ex recensione et cum notis Antonii Schultingii. De illustratione iuris civil. antiqui ex lectione classicorum auctorum. Praefatus est Georgius Henricus Ayrer.

      Leipzig, Ex officina Weidmanniana, 1737.. Editio nova, collata cum codicibus antiquissimo Wurceburgensi et Gothano Quart. Titelblatt mit Vignette, (86), 941, (80) S. Zeitgenössischer roter Halblederband mit rotem Überzugspapier auf den Buchdeckeln. Wenig beschabt. Beste wissenschaftliche Ausgabe zu den römischen Rechtsquellen in der Zeit vor den justinianischen Gesetzbüchern.; Beste wissenschaftliche Ausgabe zu den römischen Rechtsquellen in der Zeit vor den justinianischen Gesetzbüchern.. Letzte Ausgabe der berühmten Edition vorjustininianischer Rechtsquellen! Anton SCHULTING (1659-1734), niederländischer Jurist und Philologe, studierte in Leiden und war Rechtsprofessor an den Universitäten Harderwyk und Franeker, schließlich nahm er einen Ruf an die Universität in Leiden an. Berühmt wurde Schulting durch dieses Rechtsquellenwerk, das ihm den Beinamen eines holländischen Cujas einbrachte. Darin sind alle berühmten und einzigartigen Zeugnisse des spätantiken Rechtskultus aufgenommen: Institutionen des Gajus, die Sentenzen des Julius Paulus und viele andere mehr. Schultings dann 1717 in Leiden erschienenes Jurisprudentia vetus ante-Justinianea übertraf mit Abstand alles bisher Erschienene und blieb maßgeblich bis zum Anfang des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, als der Gaius von Verona ans Licht kam und Lachmann die Prinzipien der Textkritik revolutionierte. Seine Liste vorjustinianischer Quellen ist bis heute maßgeblich, obwohl seitdem Wichtiges dazugekommen ist: im frühen 19. Jahrhundert die Gaius Institutionen und die Fragmenta Vaticana, im 20. Jhdt. verschiedene Papyri. Dabei ist bemerkenswert, daß Schulting nur Texte klassischer Juristen und Kaiserkonstitutionen aufnahm, welche außerhalb Justinians Kodifikation überliefert worden sind, nicht aber, wie van Leeuwen und die modernen Quellensammlungen, die Zwölftafeln oder die Leges regiae. Daraus ergibt sich klar Schultings Absicht, wie er sie auch im Vorwort darlegte: Das Anliegen der Ausgabe war nicht antiquarisch oder rein historisch, sondern juristisch. Die Sammlung sollte Hilfsmittel zum besseren Verständnis des geltenden Rechts, d.h. des Corpus Juris Civilis bereitstellen. Eine Einleitung in den Stand der wissenschaftlichen Forschung gibt im Vorspann Georg Heinrich Ayrer in einer längeren Einleitung. Caji Institutionum libri II. - Julii Pauli sententarum recepatrum libri V. - Tituli ex Corpore Ulpiani - Tituli Codicis Gregoriani - Ex Corpore Hermogeniani Codicis - Mosaicarum et Roamanarum legum Collationis Tituli - Papiniani libri Responsorum.

      Regensburg H. Lentz and H.G. Neubauer -1745 1737 - Set of 4 double-page mezzotint engravings, printed in colour and finished by hand. Framed and glazed 51 x 59 cm. An attractive collection of fine plates, being one of the earliest examples of colour printing. Weinmann (1683-1741) was a Regensburg apothecary who organized the publication of Phytanthoza Iconographia, a huge florilegum which was not only very beautiful but which also influenced the publication of similar works worldwide. "The mezzotint process used here had been invented by Johann Teyler in the Netherlands around 1688. As practiced here by Bartholomaus Seuter (1678-1754) and Johann Elias Ridinger (1698-1767), it was really a combination of etching and mezzotint, which made possible delicate lines and a very fine grain. The addition of hand-tinting brought about unusual and subtle effects" (Hunt). Dunthorne 327; Great Flower Books, p. 80; see Hunt 494; Johnston 388; Nissen BBI, 2126; Stafleu and Cowan 17050.

Scarce first edition of this highly important work, which is one of the first in which Linné worked out his binomial nomenclature, being of "prime importance for the nomenclature of Arctic-Alpine species".On May 12th 1732, Linnaeus set out on his journey into Lapland, returning to Uppsala on October 10th, after adventures in snow and sleet, discovering 'novelties in all three kingdoms of nature', including many new plants. All this he recorded in diary and catalogue... Linnaeus worked on the present volume during his sojourn in Leyden and at the Clifford estate at Hartecamp in Holland. A Society was formed at Amsterdam to defray the expenses of the plates.., and the 'Flora Lapponica' came forth in 1737, just ahead of the 'Geneve plantarum' and the 'Hortus Cliffortianus'. Botanists had waited for it expectantly, and they received it with accaim. (Hunt No. 502)."The journey was the most adventurous that Linnaeus ever made; it has been assessed by his fellow-countrymen as the most fruitful single scientific expedition ever made in Sweden both for its immediate botanical results and its influence on Linnaeus's later career. It led to the publication in 1737 of his Flora Lapponica which is of prime importance for the nomenclature of Arctic-Alpine species; Linnaeus's Lapland specimens, on which this was based, are in Paris."

        Sermons and Discourses on Practical Subjects; Never Before Printed. Volume VII

      London - Printed by J. Bettenham, 1737. London - Printed by J. Bettenham, 1737 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The seventh volume of Robert Moss&#39;s influential sermons. Containing sixteen sermons on various religious and moral subjects. Robert Moss (c. 16661729) was the dean of Ely and &#39;preacher to the honourable society of Gray&#39;s-Inn&#39;. Moss was an able preacher. Andrew Snape, who edited his sermons and wrote a brief memoir, noted that when Moss preached at Great St Mary&#39;s, the church was always full (Moss, x). Moss was a high-churchman and a tory, and was known to frequent the tory October Club. In December 1709 he refused to preach on the thanksgiving day as a protest against the treatment received by Henry Sacheverell, following his inflammatory sermon at St Paul&#39;s Cathedral (Remarks, 2. 320). This support for Sacheverell continued through his trial, when Moss and a number of high-church divines wrote the speech given by Sacheverell to the court on 7 March 1710 (Oldmixon, 435).

        La Vie de Philippe D&#39;Orleans, Petit-fils de France

      Londres - Aux dpens de la Compagnie, 1737. Londres - Aux dpens de la Compagnie, 1737 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The second edition of this biography of Philippe D&#39;Orleans, the nephew of Louis XIV who served as Regent of France from 1715-1723. Withsixteen engravedplates (three folded). Collated complete. Complete in two volumes in the original French. In 1711, the Dauphin died at Meudon at the age of forty-nine and the title passed to his son, who died in 1712. Until his death in 1723, Orlans was generally considered to be first in line to the throne, although legitimists considered that Philip V of Spain, n Duke of Anjou and fils de France, held that place, on the contention that his renunciation in 1700 was constitutionally invalid. The deaths witihin three years of the Dauphin, two of his three sons, his daughter-in-law and the little Duke of Brittany led to widespread rumours that Orlans had poisoned them all to gain the throne. These stories were entirely without foundation- the Dauphin died of smallpox, the Duc de Berry in a riding accident and the others of measles- but they did great damage to Orlans&#39; reputation, and even Louis XIV seems to have at least half-believed them. Only in Orlans&#39; last years did the obvious affection between himself and Louis XV, and the young King&#39;s robust health, cause the rumours to die away. In his will, Louis XIV appointed Orlans president of the council of regency for the young king Louis XV. Condition: Rebound inrecent half-morocco bindings with marbled boards. Externally smart, with just some very minor shelfwear only. Internally, tightly bound. Pages are slightly age tonedbut generally clear, with someoccasional light spots. Overall: VERY GOOD..
