      Paris 1737 gedruckt bei Gissey (Bd IV in fine) für Damonneville in 12mo (17 x 9,5 cm). 4 vol.. Einschl. Titel: XIX, (5), III, (1), 385, (1), XXVIII pp; 2 nnff, III, (1), 417, (1), XXXVI pp; 2 nnff, III, (1), 376, XXIV pp; 2 nnff, II, 421, (1), XXIV pp u. dazu 98 (von 99, es fehlt Tafel 1 mit 2 Figuren) ausklappbare Falttafeln (verso: weiß) u. desweit.

Marmorpapier, handschrifl. Besitzverm. auf jed. Titel, im übrigen unbenutzt u. Kupfertafeln makellos, extrem selten! - Der komplette 'Kurs' liegt hier in 3. Aufl. in 4 vol vor (EA: 1729 in 3 vol) u. war ein buchhändl. Erfolg. Der 'Kurs' wurde ins Italien., Engl., Niederl. u. sogar noch ins Latein übersetzt. Das Erfolgsgeheimnis liegt in der Art der Stoff- u. Wissensvermittl.: Dialogform u. Ordnung u. Klarheit in Stil u. Stoff (Inhalt). - Der 'Kurs' ist ein plastisch-faßlich. Streifzug von der Grundlegung der Naturwissenschaften bis zu den Einzeldisziplinen v. Geometrie, Physik, Chemie, Anatomie, Botanik, Astronomie u. Wetterkunde. Hier werden so verständliche Themen gestreift u. mit den Kupfern 'ad oculos' demonstriert, wie Feuer u. Kanonenpulver, Erdbeben u. Magma, Vulkane u. Geburt von Inseln, Schwerkraft Meteoriten, Sternschnuppen, Wetterleuchten, Regenbogen, Sonne, Planeten u. Monde, Systeme nach Kopernikus u. Tycho Brahe u. die Kometen nach Newton, etc u. in fine (tome IV p 382 ff) der Dialog "Sur l'existence de DIEU'. - Und wie fragen der heutige Mensch u. seine praeceptores in Alma Matre Universitatis? - Die bibliograph. Erfass. der Lehrbücher Regnault's liegt noch im Argen. De Backer-Sommervogel VI 1599 ff kennt zwar eine '3. Aufl. Paris 1737 in 4 vol', jedoch für einen anderen Verleger u. der Drucker bleibt ungenannt. Hier geht es um den Druck von 'Gissey' (Bd IV in fine) für 'Damonneville' (auf allen 4 Titelblätter). - BSB-AK XLI 44 kennt nur andere Aufl. ohne 'Paris 1737', kann also somit nichts zu 2 unterschiedl. Verleg.-Namen sagen.- Re III Nr.111..

        Phytanthoza Iconographia, sive conspectus aliquot millium, tam indigenarum quam exoticarum, ex quatuor mundi partibus... plantarum, arborum, fruticum, florum, fructuum, fungorum, &c. [German title:] Phythanthoza Iconographia, oder eigentliche Vorstellung etlicher Tausend so wohl einheimisch-als ausländischer aus allen vier Welt-Theilen, in Verlauf vieler Jahr mit unermüdetem Fleisz... Pflanzen, Baüme, Stauden, Kraüter, Blumen, Früchte und Schwämme...

      1737. Regensburg, H. Lentzen [vol 4: H.G. Neubauer], 1737-45. 4 volumes and 1 index volume. Folio (382 x 250mm). With four engraved titles in red and black, one mezzotint frontispiece and two mezzotint portraits, and 1025 (a few double-page) engraved plates, some in mezzotint, the etched plates hand-coloured, the mezzotints printed in colours and finished by hand. Contemporary uniform calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label, sides with gilt ornamented border and gilt corner pieces. First edition. A very fine copy bound in a very attractive contemporary German binding. Described by the Hunt catalogue as the first botanical book to utilise colour-printed mezzotint successfully. It also contains Georg Dionysus Ehret's first published botanical illustrations (although unsigned). Ehret served his apprenticeship as a botanical draughtsman under Weinmann who exploited him mercilessly, paying him a pittance for several hundred drawings he did for the 'Phythanthoza'. This led to a falling out between the two, which is perhaps why Ehret is nowhere acknowledged in the book. His drawings were engraved by Bartholomäus Seuter, Johann Ridinger and, in the later volumes, Johann Jakob Haid, who also engraved Ehret's plates for Trew's 'Plantae selectae'. Weinmann (1683-1741) was a Regensburg apothecary who organised this massive publishing project. It was financed by Seuter, one of the engravers. The text for the first twenty-five plates was written by Johann Georg Nicolaus Dieterichs (1681-1737), who was succeeded by his son Ludwig Michael (1716-1747), and the work was completed after Weinmann's death by Ambrosius Karl Bieler (1693-1747). 'The mezzotint process used [here] had been invented by Johann Teyler in the Netherlands around 1688. As practised here by Bartholomäus 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 handtinting brought about unusual and subtle effects. Some of the best work was done in later volumes by Johann Jakob Haid (1704-1767), who also provides portraits of Weinmann and Bieler' (Hunt catalogue vol. II part II p. 160). '373 plates are signed S for Seuter and 273 plates signed H for Haid. The plates are after originals by Ehret, N. Asamin, and others, although none is so marked on the plate' (Johnston). A mint copy without the usual foxing and one of the finest copies we have seen of this rare work. Dunthorne 327; Great flower books p. 80; see Hunt 494; Johnston 388; Nissen BBI, 2126; Stafleu and Cowan 17050..

        Bybel der Natuure, of Historie der Insecten.

      1737. Biblia Naturae; sive Historia Insectorum, in classes certas redacta, nec non exemplis, et anatomico variorum animalculorum examine, aeneisque tabulis illustrata ... Accedit praefatio, in qua vitam Auctoris descripsit Hermannus Boerhaave ... Leydae, I. Severinus, B. & P. van der Aa, 1737-1738. 2 volumes. Folio (348 x 230mm). pp. (60), 1-550; pp. (4), 551-910, 124, (36), with 5 titles printed in red and black, 5 engraved title-vignettes and 53 folded engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 8 compartments with 2 red gilt lettered labels, frontcovers with gilt coat of arms with monogram N.G (small repair to head of spine of the second volume). "The Biblia Naturae is the finest collection of microscopical observations ever produced by one worker ... The book is consulted by naturalists to this day. Some of the figures have never been excelled ..." (Singer). The scarce original edition with Latin and Dutch text printed in double columns. "Despite a scientific career that lasted only a dozen years, Swammerdam was one of the oustanding comparative anatomists of the seventeenth century. His most remarkable work was in the field of insect anatomy, which he undertook in order to disprove still-current Aristotelian notions (which he opposed upon religious grounds) that insects lack internal anatomy, develop by metamorphosis (sudden and complete transformation) and arise from spontaneous generation. By refining his techniques of microdissection and injection to the point where he could use them on the smallest and most delicate anatomical parts, Swammerdam was able to illustrate for the first time the complex internal structures of insects, including their reproductive organs; and to demonstrate the gradual development of an insect's adult form throughout all its larval stages. These observations are 'indubitable the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects' (Cole, p. 285). In addition Swammerdam performed valuable investigations of crustaceans, mollusks and frogs, and was the first to prove experimentally that muscles do not increase in bulk when contracted via nerve stimulation. "The 'Biblia naturae', Swammerdam's major work, was published fifty-five years after his death by Hermann Boerhave ... the fifty-three copperplates were prepared under Swammerdam's direction from his own drawings" (Haskell F. Norman Library of Science & Medicine, 2037). A number of plates depict molluscs, frogs and crustaceans. A beautifully bound and well preserved copy. Nissen ZBI, 4055..

        La verite des miracles operes par l' intercession de M. de Paris. Demontree contre M. l' Archeveque de Sens.

      Libraires de la Compagnie, Utrecht 1737. Erstausgabe Ganzleder Der Zeit Sehr gut. Originaler Einband, Ganzleder der Zeit. Goldornamentik am Rücken, sehr guter Zustand, durchgehend sauber, keine Stockflecken. Buchblock tadellos; ca. 900 Seiten, 19 Teile in 1 Band, jeweils neubeginnend paginiert, vollständig vorliegend. Frontispiz Portrait F.de Paris, 19 Kupfertafeln - davon 1 Falttafel (vorher - nachher bez. Wunder), 19 magnifiques gravures, propres, sans rousseurs. Gestochen von P. Yver, guter Druck, Titelvignetten. Die erste Wunderheilung (miracles) ist die vom Autor selbst. Alle acht folgenden Wunderheilungen werden begleitet von einem Kommentar (consequences qu'on doit tirer des miracles) und einer Beweisführung (pieces justificatives). Darstellungen der Wunderheilungen, die sich am Grabe des asketischen Diakons Francois de Paris zugetragen haben. Francois de Paris (1690-1727) gehörte zu den extremen Jansenisten. Nach seinem Tod kamen die Menschen an sein Grab, um zu beten und die Wunderheilungen fanden immer in der Begleitung von Konvulsionen statt. Bald darauf wurde der Friedhof zu einem Schauplatz von schwerer Hysterie befallenen Menschen. Montgeron, der auf dem Grab des Diakons im September 1731 konvertierte, wurde zum großen Apostel der Konvulsionen und Selbstbestrafungen, die sogar bis zur Selbstkreuzigung führten. Eine der ersten, die geheilt wurden, war die Nichte von Blaise Pascal, an einem Augenfollikel leidend. Der Friedhof wurde dann geschlossen und Montgeron endete in der Bastille. "Apres la mort de Francois de Paris sur le territoire de la paroisse Saint-Medard, les gens vinrent prier sur sa tombe et nombre de guerisons spectaculaires s'y produisirent, toujours accompagnees de convulsions nerveuses. Bientot le cimetiere offrit le spectacle de veritables scenes d'hysterie. Le grand apotre des convulsions et des secours (penitences corporelles allant jusqu'a la crucifixion, que s'imposaient les convulsionnaires) fut le parlementaire Carre de Montgeron, converti sur le tombeau du diacre Paris en Septembre 1731". (Louis Cognet : le Jansenisme, P.U.F. 1961) "Le Roi decida en 1732 d'en faire interdire l'acces ; un inconnu malicieux posa une affichette sur la palissade fermant le cimetiere, avec ces mots : "De par le Roi, defense a Dieu de faire miracle en ce lieu " (on peut toujours voir la porte muree a l'angle de la rue Daubenton et de la rue Candolle). La paroisse fut un lieu de forte resistance a la Bulle Unigenitus publiee en 1713 et en particulier a partir de mars 1752 avec la question des billets de confession (voir Christophe de Beaumont). Durant la Revolution, l'eglise est fermee et le culte aboli en novembre 1793. Elle est rouverte par un decret de la Convention de mai 1795. La paroisse partage son eglise avec les theophilanthropes et avec le culte decadaire elle s'appellera Temple du Travail pendant dix mois. " (Wikipedia). 19 x 26 Cm. 1,7 Kg.

Jan Swammerdam (1637-1680), niederländischer Naturforscher und gilt als Begründer der Präformationslehre (Evolutionslehre). 1658 beschrieb er als erster Mensch die von ihm unter dem Mikroskop entdeckten roten Blutkörperchen. Ab 1661 nahm er ein Medizin-Studium an der Universität Leiden auf, ging 1664 nach Paris, kehrte ein Jahr später zurück nach Leiden und Amsterdam und wurde 1667 zum Dr. med. promoviert. 1675 veröffenltichte er seine Abhandlungen zur Naturgeschichte der Insekten. Er erkannte, dass die Königin das einzige fortpflanzungsfähige Weibchen des Bienenvolkes ist und stellte fest, dass die Metamorphose der Insekten nichts anderes ist als Entfaltung und Wachstum bereits vorhandener Anlagen. Weitere wichtige Studien befassen sich mit dem Lebenszyklus der Frösche und mit dem Bau der weiblichen Geschlechtsorgane des Menschen."The Biblia Naturae is the finest collection of microscopical observations ever produced by one worker ... The book is consulted by naturalists to this day. Some of the figures have never been excelled ..." (Singer). The scarce original edition with Latin and Dutch text printed in double columns.

        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.

        Aloe Africana humilis...N. 58

      Regensburg: H. Lentz and H.G. Neubauer. First. unbound. very good. Botanical. Color mezzotint with hand coloring. Page measures 16.25" x 10.5". Beautiful aloe print in an urn from the four-volume study of flowers and plants, "Phytanthoza Iconographia" edited by Johann Weinmann between 1737 and 1745. Both accurate and beautiful, these prints were the first botanical color mezzotints, a revolutionary method that allowed for subtlety and detail. Weinmann (1683-1741) was a renowned pharmicist whose plant studies earned him scientific acclaim among botanists. He employed several botanical artists and engravers to assist with the project including Bartholomäus Seuter, Johann Ridinger, Johann Jakob Haid and most notably Georg Dionysus Ehret. Weinmann was the first to publish drawings by Ehret, but after a dispute over payment, gave him no credit. Ehret later became a dominant figure in the botanical world under the patronage of Dr. Jakob Trew. Light stain along top edge and lower right corner. Light toning along top and right edges. Pin holes along left edge from original binding. Full original margins. Please visit our gallery for more Weinmann prints.
