        The Civil Law in its Natural Order: Together with the Publick Law

      1737. Domat, Jean [1625-1696]. Strahan, William, Translator. The Civil Law in its Natural Order: Together with the Publick Law. Written in French by Monsieur Domat: And Translated into English by William Strahan, LL.D. With Additional Remarks on Some Material Differences between the Civil Law and the Law of England. London: Printed for D. Midwinter [et al.], 1737. Two volumes. Main text in parallel columns. Folio (13-1/2" x 8-1/2"). Contemporary calf, gilt rules to boards, raised bands and recent period-style lettering pieces to spines. Moderate rubbing with some wear to spine ends and corners, boards beginning to separate (but secure), front free endpaper of Volume I partially detached, following endleaf completely detached, armorial bookplate (Viscount Dorone) to pastedowns of both volumes. Some toning to text, heavier toning and light foxing in places, internally clean. A handsome copy. * Second English edition, "with additions." Domat's Civil Law is a great work that combines the materials of Roman and French law into a single system and places it on a foundation of ethical principles. "The Civil Law in its Natural Order, considering the age and the circumstances in which it was written, is a truly wonderful performance. His method is excellent, and his matter clear, exact, and comprehensive. Pothier, and other continental jurists, have drawn largely upon him to assist their own labors" (Marvin). Holdsworth says this edition is better than Wood's incomplete 1705 translation. "Strahan's translation...is a very much more considerable book, both as a book on Roman law, and, by reason of the translator's notes, as a book on comparative law.": Holdsworth, History of English Law XII:428. Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 271. English Short-Title Catalogue T96069.

Valerius Catullus Veronensis et in eum Jo: Antonii Vulpii Eloquentiae Professoris in Gymnasio Patavino Novus Commentarius Locupletissimus. Patavii [Padua]: Josephus Cominus, 1737. First separate Volpi edition, originally issued collectively with Albius Tibullus E.R., and Sex. Aurelius Propertius (1710), here with material not found in that earlier edition.

Includes Vopi's essay, De Metris Catulli, commentary, bibliographical references and index.Contemporary full vellum. Calf spine label. All edges dappled in red and yellow. Stab-stitch holes manifest. Text block crisp and clean. A remarkable copy of a scarce book, here in its fine original eighteenth century vellum binding with decorated edges.No copies have come to auction within the last thirty-six years."'This is in every respect,' says Dr. Harwood, 'the best edition of Catullus yet published; the text is exhibited in a more correct manner, and the notes of Vulpius are very valuable.' According to Ernesti and Harles, the notes of Vulpius are not so much in emendation of the text, as in illustration of the poet by selecting parallel passages from ancient and modern writers" (Dibdin I, p. 245)."Gian Antonio Volpi, born at Padua in 1686, studied in his native town and became a good Latin and Greek scholar. In 1717 he and his brother Gaetano Volpi established a printing press in their house for the purpose of bring out correct editions of classic authors, and they engaged for their assistant the printer Giuseppi Comino. This press - known by the name Volpi-Cominiana, produced among others a valuable edition of Catullus with copious notes. The edition was much commended by scholars, and the city of Verona struck a gold medal, which was presented to Volpi" (Long, George. The Supplement to the Penny Cyclopedia of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, p. 699.For many years professor of philosophy and rhetoric at University of Padua, Volpi went blind in his old age and died in 1766.

        Broadside from Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, announcing alliance with Russia in their war with the Ottoman Empire

      1737. Paperback. Near Fine. Decree of Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, announcing that he will be an ally of RUssia in their war with the Ottoman Empire (1735-1738). After the announcement, there follows an offer to peoples under Ottoman rule to surrender, and for those who want freedom from the Turks there is a description of priveleges that will be granted to them (i.e. freedom from pillage and plunder by his army). The document is dated June 1737, with the space for the day of the month left blank. Charles VI (1 October 1685 – 20 October 1740) was the penultimate Habsburg sovereign of the Habsburg Empire. He succeeded his elder brother, Joseph I, as Holy Roman Emperor, King of Bohemia (Charles II), Hungary and Croatia (Charles III), Archduke of Austria, etc., in 1711. He unsuccessfully claimed the throne of Spain as Charles III following the death of its ruler, and Charles's relative, Charles II of Spain, in 1700. This is a particularly fine broadside, with woodcut initial, and what may be the signature of "Carolus VI" (or a clerk of his) at the bottom left, with further undecipherable text underneath. Lower right has the signature of Johannes Christopherus Bartenstein. Printed on thick, laid paper, folded; measures 36x41cm, or 14x16.25in.

Idque omne, progressu a Libris mere Euopaeis (de Sina tamen) ad Libros mere Sinicos, facto.

      Chez Musier [et al.], Paris 1737 - Folio [33.5 cm x 22 cm]. (4) ff, xxvi, (2) ff, 152 pp, plus large folding chart of vocalized characters. Bound in contemporary velum over boards with gilt title label on spine. One or two signatures significantly toned, pages otherwise clean and fresh. A pleasant and very genuine copy. Scarce first and sole edition of the author¿s first work: an elaborate treatise on the Chinese [South Mandarin] language, ¿the second grammar to be published in Europe, preceded only by Bayer¿s grammatical account [St. Petersburg, 1730]¿ (Löwendahl). Fourmont¿s Meditationes Sinicae is also notable as being the first work printed with engraved Chinese type in France. The attractively-printed folio treatise introduces the reader to the Kangxi system of 214 radicals, still in use today as a method of learning Chinese. Fourmont calls this system of forming characters the ¿Clavis Sinica¿, using it as a departure point for his discussion of tones, linguistic ancestry, and even a thorough review of known literature (both European and Chinese) on the Chinese language. The present work is significant in the history of Oriental typography, representing the first use of the petits chinois typeset created at the behest of Louis XIV, the first Chinese type produced in France. ¿With the support of the Regent, the Duke of Orleans, and of [Jean-Paul] Bignon, Fourmont accomplished the engraving of 80,000 characters for the printing of his [proposed] dictionaries and grammars. This was an ambitious project, since no Chinese engravers were available in Paris. Fourmont had to train French craftsmen, seeing to it that the strokes were scrupulously copied and properly placed for each character. The models were taken from a Chinese dictionary [Pin tse tien / Pin zijian]. The engraving commenced in 1720, and there were seven craftsmen to begin with, the work lasting twenty years in all¿ (Leung, p. 243). Fourmont (1683-1745) was appointed in 1711 to assist Arcadio Huang, a Chinese Christian convert brought to Paris to promote the learning of Chinese. After Huang¿s death, Fourmont was placed in charge of the Chinese scholar¿s papers. Both Fourmont¿s Meditationes Sinicae and his Grammatica Sinica (1742) are said to draw heavily on Huang¿s own unpublished work. OCLC shows seven US copies: NYPL, Yale, Newberry, Chicago, Allegheny College (PA), Cornell, and Columbia. * Cordier BS III, 1658-60; Lowendahl 402; cf also Leung, Etienne Fourmont (1683¿1745): Oriental and Chinese Languages in Eighteenth-Century France [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [London : Printed by James Purser] 1737-38 . 3 vols, 8vo, large and thick paper, eng. port., [4], iv, 364 pp + 443 pp, + [4], 410, [54] pp, portrait, title vignettes and headpieces finely engraved by Simon Gribelin, an eighteenth century ms. notice pasted inside the cover of volume 1 reads "Mary Countess Dowr. of Shaftesbury's Books brought from Her House in Grosvenor Square 1772. Characteristicks. 3 Vols. Uniformly bound in Blue Morocco.", bound in contemporary dark blue morocco, the covers with broad roll borders showing ten different insects, including a snail, and edged with a sawtooth roll, each cover with a large central lozenge composed of tulips, acorns, leaves, circles, dots and stars, those on vols 1 and 3 identical, that on vol 2 subtly different, spines with six raised bands fully gilt, titles and volume numbers applied direct to spine in 2 compartments, the tooling on vol 2 differing slightly, spines slightly faded, otherwise a very fine set. Mary, Countess of Shaftesbury (d. 1804), was the daughter of Jacob, 1st Viscount Folkstone and wife of Anthony, 4th Earl of Shaftesbury (1710-1771). This lavishly produced edition was apparently sponsored by the 4th earl in memory of his father and the present copy is one of a small number known in this presentation binding. Edward Bayntun-Coward in his Occasional List No.1. (2002) describes (item 34) a similar example using both the present insect roll and a 'bird and wave' roll and goes on to list "five other copies of this edition bound by the same binder to similar designs" :- 1. George II's copy, in the British library. 2. The present copy, which was item 114 in Maggs catalogue 845 (1957). 3. Maggs catalogue 893 no.91 in red morocco. (1964). 4. Maggs catalogue 1212 no. 100. 5. The Wormsley Library copy. Of these six copies most have a haphazard mixed use of the insect and the bird rolls; only the present copy and copy 4 have the insect roll uniformly on all three volumes and Bayntun-Coward's theory is that since they were designed for presentation a number of different finishers were working on them with different tools at the same time in order to meet a deadline. I would only add that as owner of a bindery he surely knows what deadlines can do! ESTC 66624

The central fact of Boyle's life was his deep piety. His friends remarked after his death how the very Name of God was never mentioned by him without a Pause and a visible stop in his Discourse, and this slightly disconcerting habit was symptomatic of the overriding significance for him of his deep theism. Burnet's funeral sermon stressed how Boyle's life was devoted to the service of God and to the defence and propagation of the Christian religion. He deployed for charitable purposes the wealth that he acquired both by his high birth and by the grant of impropriations to him by Charles II at the Restoration. His support for missionary enterprises was supplemented by philanthropy on a smaller scale: throughout his life he devoted funds to the support of the needy. He was similarly solicitous in placing the medical expertise that he acquired in the course of his career at the disposal of the necessitous. However, Boyle's chief pursuit of his religious goals was by means of intellectual activity. In the 1640s his preoccupation was the encouragement of piety and of high standards of morality among his peers. Thereafter, his concern was above all with promoting his theistic ends by utilizing the findings from the profuse study of nature. DNBCondition: In full leather bindings. Externally worn, with loss to the leather. Four joints are cracked, three starting, although they are still holding strong. Two hinges are slightly strained. Internally, firmly bound.

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. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

      Paris: Chez Musier [et al.], 1737. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio [33.5 cm x 22 cm]. (4) ff, xxvi, (2) ff, 152 pp, plus large folding chart of vocalized characters. Bound in contemporary velum over boards with gilt title label on spine. One or two signatures significantly toned, pages otherwise clean and fresh. A pleasant and very genuine copy. Scarce first and sole edition of the author's first work: an elaborate treatise on the Chinese [South Mandarin] language, "the second grammar to be published in Europe, preceded only by Bayer's grammatical account [St. Petersburg, 1730]" (Löwendahl). Fourmont's Meditationes Sinicae is also notable as being the first work printed with engraved Chinese type in France. The attractively-printed folio treatise introduces the reader to the Kangxi system of 214 radicals, still in use today as a method of learning Chinese. Fourmont calls this system of forming characters the 'Clavis Sinica', using it as a departure point for his discussion of tones, linguistic ancestry, and even a thorough review of known literature (both European and Chinese) on the Chinese language. The present work is significant in the history of Oriental typography, representing the first use of the petits chinois typeset created at the behest of Louis XIV, the first Chinese type produced in France. "With the support of the Regent, the Duke of Orleans, and of [Jean-Paul] Bignon, Fourmont accomplished the engraving of 80,000 characters for the printing of his [proposed] dictionaries and grammars. This was an ambitious project, since no Chinese engravers were available in Paris. Fourmont had to train French craftsmen, seeing to it that the strokes were scrupulously copied and properly placed for each character. The models were taken from a Chinese dictionary [Pin tse tien / Pin zijian]. The engraving commenced in 1720, and there were seven craftsmen to begin with, the work lasting twenty years in all" (Leung, p. 243). Fourmont (1683-1745) was appointed in 1711 to assist Arcadio Huang, a Chinese Christian convert brought to Paris to promote the learning of Chinese. After Huang's death, Fourmont was placed in charge of the Chinese scholar's papers. Both Fourmont's Meditationes Sinicae and his Grammatica Sinica (1742) are said to draw heavily on Huang's own unpublished work. OCLC shows seven US copies: NYPL, Yale, Newberry, Chicago, Allegheny College (PA), Cornell, and Columbia. * Cordier BS III, 1658-60; Lowendahl 402; cf also Leung, Etienne Fourmont (1683-1745): Oriental and Chinese Languages in Eighteenth-Century France

Antiporta incisa su rame con François de Paris in adorazione del Crocifisso e altre 19 tavv. calcografiche f.t. di elegante fattura raffiguranti eventi e guarigioni miracolose, di cui una su doppia pag. rappresentante il pellegrinaggio alla tomba dell'ecclesiastico. Le incisioni sono di Pieter Yver da disegno di Jean Restout. Magnifico esemplare. Seconda edizione, immediatamente posteriore alla prima, di questo resoconto degli eventi prodigiosi operati da François de Paris (Parigi, 1690-ivi, 1727), Diacono della chiesa parigina. Alla sua morte il religioso venne inumato nel cimitero di Saint-Médard e i giansenisti sparsero rapidamente la voce che sul suo sepolcro fossero avvenute delle guarigioni portentose. Tali voci dettero origine anche a fenomeni di isteria convulsiva (che riguardarono anche il fratello di Voltaire, Armand Arouet) e a lunghe processioni sulla tomba dell'ecclesiastico, tali da far decidere al clero parigino di chiudere il cimitero, sui cui muri venne scritto, alcuni giorni dopo, in segno di scherno: "De par le roi, défense à Dieu De faire miracle en ce lieu". Il Montgeron si era recato a Saint-Médard prima della sua chiusura con atteggiamento del tutto scettico, volendo provare la falsità dei miracolo di cui si narrava, ma il suo scetticismo ebbe a decadere; egli divenne un ardente seguace spirituale di François de Paris e scrisse il presente libro proprio per affermare la verità dei miracoli attribuitigli. La prima tiratura, di 5000 copie, era stata impressa a Parigi senza luogo di stampa e senza indicazioni tipografiche, ma tale impressione venne rapidamente sequestrata e in gran parte distrutta in un rogo dinanzi alla Bastiglia. Lo stesso Montgeron per aver osato presentare copia del volume al Re di Francia e al Duca di Orléans venne incarcerato alla Bastiglia e poi a Valence, dove si spense dopo 17 anni di carcerazione nel 1754.

Un profilo biografico è dedicato a San Vigilio, vescovo e martire, patrono di Trento. Alcuni profili di Santi, soprattutto dei primi tempi cristiani, risentono molto delle ?leggende? della tradizione popolare, tant?é che alcuni Santi vengono descritti come imparentati con Gesù Cristo. Legatura coeva in piena pelle.

        Bybel der Natuure, of Historie der Insecten.

      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.

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.

Accedunt Interpolationes, & Auctaria ex novis Inventis & Observationibus Recentiorum Auctorum, cura Joannis Danielis Horstii. Opus omnibus medicinae et juris utriusque peritis.

      3 Bände. Folio. (8 Bl.), 404 S. - 371 S. - (8 Bl.), 404 S. Schöne Halblederbände im Stil der Zeit mit Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung. Unbeschnitten. 3 Bände. Das Werk dieses "klassischen Schriftstellers über gerichtliche Medizin" (Gurlt) dokumentiert Haeser II, 1081 zufolge einen entschiedenen Fortschritt in der gerichtlichen Medizin, vor allem gegenüber den Anfängen dieser Disziplin wie z. B. den Schriften des Fortunato Fidele und der Bamberger peinlichen Gerichtsordnung. - Hirsch/H. V, 1020/21; Gurlt II, 572-575 (ausführlich); Garrison/Morton 1720 zur Ausg. 1621-61: "Zacchias, a Papal physician, was one of the founders of medical jurisprudence. His treatise includes information concerning injuries of the eye, etc., and contains section on the medico-legal aspects of insanity." - Zacchia (1584-1659), war seit 1644 Leibarzt der Päpste Innocenz X. und Alexander VII. und Protomedicus des Kirchenstaates. "Er war ein außerordentlich gelehrter, in allen Zweigen des Wissens wohl erfahrener Mann, auch poetisch begabt, literarisch gewandt und selbst ein geschickter Maler und tüchtiger Kenner der Musik. Für die Medicin hat er die Bedeutung, dass er als der eigentliche Begründer der gerichtlichen Medicin anzusehen ist; in dieser Hinsicht ist sein Amt als Consulent der Rota Romana, des Obersten Gerichtshofes des Kirchenstaates, von besonderem Wert" (H.H.). - "Giustamente affermano tutti gli storici della medicina che il merito di aver dato origine a questa brance della scienza medica va ascritto incontestabilmente all'Italia: sono medici italiani del '600 e del '700, scrive il Sudhoff, ai quali spetta il vanto di aver dato per i primi forma sistematica e sintetica alla medicina legale e di averne fatto una disciplina a sé. Zacchia fuun uomo di vastissimo sapere, medico di Papa Innocenze X, il quale gli affido i piu delicati incharichi relativi alla pubblica salute e quindi lo chiamo a dirigere il servizio sanitario dello Stato Pontificio" (Castiglioni, Storia della medicina, 487). - Sehr gut erhalten und nur vereinzelt gering fleckig.

      Hamburg, Koenigiana, 1737. 4:o. (16),+ 272,+ (18) s. Grav. titel- och slutvinjett. Lätta småfläckar och små fuktstänk. Nött samtida skinnband, rikt guldornerad rygg med titeletikett av pergament, pärmarna med spegeldekor, stänksnitt. Trasig i främre fals nedtill och i övre kapitäl. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica I, sp. 626. Fiske 23. Warmholtz 1308. Juristen och historikern P. F. Arpes (1682-1740) sista bok, en kritisk genomgång av källorna till folkvandringsfolkens ursprung och vandringar, liksom om deras samhällsliv, rättsväsen etc. Han ställer sig, till Warmholtz stora förtret, kritisk till flera folks förmenta nordiska ursprung. Kraftiga anmärkningar emot Arpe, och speciellt emot de här framförda "orättmätiga omdömen" (enligt Warmholtz) rörande de skånska antikviteterna, framfördes av Jonas Floraeus i ett bihang till dennes "Antiquitatis scanicae", från 1743, kallat Anti-Arpiana. Att boken finns med i Bibliotheca danica beror på att den anses behandla äldre dansk rätt. Arpe studerade även några år i Köpenhamn
