         The Motion of Fluids, Natural and Artificial; In particular that of the air and water: in a Familiar Manner proposed and proved by evident and conclusive Experiments to which are added many useful Remarks.

      London: Edward Symon, 1737. London:: Edward Symon, 1737., 1737. 8vo. xvi, 369, [23] pp. 9 engraved plates, index, errata. Contemporary crimson gilt-tooled calf, later gilt-stamped leather spine label, raised bands, all edges gilt. Ownership inscription of D. Laing. SPECIALLY BOUND DEDICATEE'S PERSONAL COPY. Very good. Second edition, corrected and improved. The contents are made up on 67 chapters relating to statics, hydrostatics, syphons, pumps of various types, "fire-engines" [steam engines], motion of water in canals & pipes, specific gravity, hydrometer, pneumatics, barometer, air-pump, effects of air pressure on animal bodies, muscular motion, heart pressure, circulation of the blood, animal respiration & suction, elasticity of the air, cupping (bleeding), rise of sap in plants, thermometer, hygrometer, atmospheric phenomena, of winds, smokey chambers, causes of thunder & meteors, precipitation, and the origin of springs, sound (the trumpet instrument), and tides. – Roberts & Trent. / Indeed, the chapter on "The Art of Diving" makes clear the effect of increasing pressure as it affects the volume of a given amount of gas (Boyle's Law). Indeed, the relative volumes of air at 33, 66 and 99 feel (1, 2, and 3 atmospheres) are explicitly defined. This chapter, however, discusses the malady that we now know as Caisson's Disease or the Bends, but fails to explain the reason behind the resulting debility. The plates mostly deal with hydraulics, including siphons, water wells and decorative fountains. The author was apparently quite well known in his time as Benjamin Franklin cites Clare and this book in his own writings. Martin Clare was a London schoolmaster and Freemason. He … 'entertained' the members of the Grand Stewards' Lodge on 17 November 1735 with …an excellent Discourse containing some maxims and Advice that concerned the Society in general. Clare's grave and quiet method of delivery made a strong impression on the audience and [his] conclusion was received with loud approbation… [Stewart]. / Dr. Nicholas Hans (1888-1969), a renowned scholar of comparative education, writes that Clare founded the Academy in Soho Square, London, in 1717/18. On the title of this imprint Clare claims the degree "A.M." [Master of Arts], and in 1720 he was titled School-Master in Soho Square, interested in vocational training for boys. "In consequence the subjects taught in his school included (in Clare's order): Latin, English, French, Writing, Arithmetic, Book-keeping, Drawing, Geography, Mathematics (Mensuration, Gauging, Surveying, Navigation), Geometry, Astronomy, Experimental and Natural Philosophy and Algebra. In 1735 Clare published his well-known book on the Motion of Fluids. The copy in the British Museum gives some additional information about Clare. On the covering leaf there is a handwritten note, evidently by a contemporary, which states that when Clare was 'standing candidate for election into the Royal Society, it was objected that he sought that title to give a sanction to his profession of instructing Youth and to this productions: whereupon he declared that he would not make any public use of the said title'. He was duly elected F.R.S. and appeared in the List for the first time in 1736. He dedicated his book on fluids to Thomas Thynne, Viscount Weymouth, the Grand Master of the Ancient and Honourable Society of Free and Accepted Masons. Clare calls Thynne 'the patron and encourager of useful arts. . . Clare himself was a freemason. . . From the introduction to his book on fluids we see that Clare was a friend of Dr. Th. Desaguliers, the famous leader of Freemasonry and a pioneer of adult education. Clare says that he consulted Desaguliers on some points in the book, which was the result of a series of lectures to private audiences." – Nicholas Hans, New Trends in Education in the Eighteenth Century, Routledge, (1998). (pp. 87-88). / Hunter Rouse states, "For its time, this was an excellent textbook."– Rouse, Historic Writings on Hydraulics, 1984, no. 116.

         Poems on Several Occasions. Viz. To a Gentleman who requested a Copy of Veerse from the Author. On Poverty. And on Several Other Subjects. To which is prefixed, An Account of the Author. By J. Spence, Professor of Poetry in the University of Oxon. The Second Edition.

      London: Printed for W. Bickerton. 1737 - 8vo, 197 x 118 mms., pp. [iii] iv - xxxix [xl blank], 312, engraved portrait of Duck as frontispiece, contemporary calf; rear cover a bit soiled, some other general wear to binding but a good to very good copy, with the autograph "Clemantiney Goode/ Southam" on the rear paste-down end-paper. Duck (1705 - 1756) started life as a farm worker, taught himself to read and write, and began versifying in, probably, his late teens. Joseph Spence, the Earl of Macclesfield, and Dr. Francis Lockier were early sponsors of Duck, and Spence wrote to Pope on 12 September 1730 endorsing Duck's excellences, adding, "The Man is so out of the world, that he never saw your Essay on Criticism till his coming to Winton this week: & reads it with so much taste, that I was surprizd to find he could repeat the best part of it by heart this morning." The first edition of his poems was also published in 1736, a sumptuous quarto, with eleven pages of subscribers (including Pope and Swift), and printed by Samuel Richardson. This is one of two octavo editions published in 1736, with the other "Printed for the Author" as the imprint. Foxon, page 201, a re-issue of the first octavo edition "Printed for the Author."

         Notizie Istoriche e Critiche intorno alla Vita, alle Invenzioni, ed agli Scritti di Archimede Siracusano…

      By Giovanni Maria Mazzuchelli. Engraved vignette on title, two engraved headpieces, & four folding engraved plates. 8 p.l., 128 pp. Large 4to, cont. limp boards (a little soiled), uncut. Brescia: G.M. Rizzardi, 1737. First edition, the author's own large-paper copy, interleaved, and thoroughly annotated and corrected by him throughout. Mazzuchelli made the numerous additions, corrections, and annotations in preparation for a second enlarged edition which was never published. Mazzuchelli (1707-65), the celebrated Italian biographer and historian, wrote a number of important lives of Italian authors; this is his first book and concentrates on the various mechanical inventions, mathematical works, and hydrostatical problems of Archimedes. The final seven chapters are concerned with the corpus of the mathematician's writings: the various editions, commentaries, manuscripts, lost writings, doubtful writings, etc. On the interleavings and in the text, Mazzuchelli has made or added about 4400 words of additions and corrections, including entire passages inserted or cancelled, footnotes emended or enlarged, Greek translated into Latin, the correction of "typos," etc. It is clear that Mazzuchelli worked on this copy over a number of years: later changes and additions take the form of slips of paper tipped onto the interleavings, corrections corrected, additions made to additions, etc. The verso of the half-title bears his manuscript instructions (in trans.): "Wishing to prepare a new edition of this work, a portrait of the author [Archimedes] could be added at the opening of the volume, taking it from Vol I p. 183 of Thevet's History of the Most Illustrious Learned, in which he says it comes from an old bronze." A fine large-paper copy. On the front paste-down: "Ex libris Jo. Marie Mazzuchelli." Ownership inscription on same paste-down of Federico Patetta noting his purchase of the book at Modena from Prof. Ferdinando Jacobi. Neat signature of Giambattista Sardagna on title.

         A Curious Herbal, containing five hundred cuts of the most useful plants, which are now used in the Practice of Physick

      London: Samuel Harding, 1737. 2 volumes, folio. (17 1/2 x 11 inches). 2 engraved title-pages, 8 engraved dedicatory leaves (6 in vol. 1, 2 in vol. 2), one engraved commendation from the Royal College of Physicians in vol. 1, 2 engraved preface leaves in vol. 1, 2 engraved leaves "English index" (one in each volume), 2 engraved leaves "Catalogus Plantarum" (one in each volume), 125 engraved text leaves and 500 hand-coloured engraved plates. Extra-illustrated with: a folding hand coloured counterproof of an engraved plate titled "Peruvian Bark Tree" by J. Mynde after Johannes Hawkeens' drawing of 1739, published 1741, with an extensive manuscript caption; and a contemporary original watercolor drawing on laid paper with faint pencil caption "Scylla rubra offic.," unsigned. Scattered foxing. Contemporary black morocco, covers with wide gilt border composed of small tools and a central gilt device comprised of the same small tools, spines in eight compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering pieces in the second compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (expert repairs at joints and head and tail of spine).Provenance: Josiah Messer (early signature); George Hubbard (bookplate); Ladislaus von Hoffmann.A stunning large-paper, hand-coloured copy of the first edition of Blackwell's famed herbal: the first herbal illustrated by a woman and one of the earliest English books with hand coloured plates. This copy extra-illustrated with an original watercolour.Elizabeth Blackwell undertook her project in 1735 with the encouragement of various eminent members of the medical profession and with the intention of paying off the debts of her husband Alexander Blackwell, whose London printing-house had been ruined by rival printers. She took a house opposite the Chelsea Physic Garden, at 4 Swan Walk in order to draw and engrave the plants and create an up-to-date illustrated text of medicinal plants previously lacking in the botanical fields. Her husband helped by supplying the common names of the plants in various languages. The work was a success, and she earned enough to free her husband from debtor's prison. She then emigrated to Sweden with her husband where he found employment as an agricultural expert (Linnaeus visited him in 1746)."This, with Martyn and Catesby, is one of the early flower books published in parts. Each numbered leaf was issued with the four plates described on it, at the rate of one a week for 125 weeks. Beginning in 1737, the parts continued into 1739. Hand-colored parts sold for two shillings, ordinary parts for one" (Hunt). The present copy is an early issue, with both titles dated 1737, and the "Vol. 2" on Volume 2 title-page not altered in manuscript. According to Henrey, "there is no uniformity with regard to the number of dedications contained in the various issues, or in the order in which the preliminary leaves are arranged."Josiah Messer, who has signed the front endpapers at an early date (and who is perhaps responsible for the extensive manuscript caption on the extra-illustration of the Cinchona) was an 18th century London chemist and apothecary.Cleveland Collections 386; Dunthorne 42; Great Flower Books (1990), p. 50; Henrey 452; Hunt 510; Lisney 175 and 180; Nissen BBI 168; Pritzel 811; Stafleu-Cowan TL2 545.

         A Curious Herbal, containing five hundred cuts of the most useful plants, which are now used in the Practice of Physick

      Samuel Harding, London 1737 - (17 1/2 x 11 inches). 2 engraved title-pages, 8 engraved dedicatory leaves (6 in vol. 1, 2 in vol. 2), one engraved commendation from the Royal College of Physicians in vol. 1, 2 engraved preface leaves in vol. 1, 2 engraved leaves "English index" (one in each volume), 2 engraved leaves "Catalogus Plantarum" (one in each volume), 125 engraved text leaves and 500 hand-coloured engraved plates. Extra-illustrated with: a folding hand coloured counterproof of an engraved plate titled "Peruvian Bark Tree" by J. Mynde after Johannes Hawkeens' drawing of 1739, published 1741, with an extensive manuscript caption; and a contemporary original watercolor drawing on laid paper with faint pencil caption "Scylla rubra offic.," unsigned. Scattered foxing. Contemporary black morocco, covers with wide gilt border composed of small tools and a central gilt device comprised of the same small tools, spines in eight compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering pieces in the second compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (expert repairs at joints and head and tail of spine). Provenance: Josiah Messer (early signature); George Hubbard (bookplate); Ladislaus von Hoffmann. A stunning large-paper, hand-coloured copy of the first edition of Blackwell's famed herbal: the first herbal illustrated by a woman and one of the earliest English books with hand coloured plates. This copy extra-illustrated with an original watercolour. Elizabeth Blackwell undertook her project in 1735 with the encouragement of various eminent members of the medical profession and with the intention of paying off the debts of her husband Alexander Blackwell, whose London printing-house had been ruined by rival printers. She took a house opposite the Chelsea Physic Garden, at 4 Swan Walk in order to draw and engrave the plants and create an up-to-date illustrated text of medicinal plants previously lacking in the botanical fields. Her husband helped by supplying the common names of the plants in various languages. The work was a success, and she earned enough to free her husband from debtor's prison. She then emigrated to Sweden with her husband where he found employment as an agricultural expert (Linnaeus visited him in 1746). "This, with Martyn and Catesby, is one of the early flower books published in parts. Each numbered leaf was issued with the four plates described on it, at the rate of one a week for 125 weeks. Beginning in 1737, the parts continued into 1739. Hand-colored parts sold for two shillings, ordinary parts for one" (Hunt). The present copy is an early issue, with both titles dated 1737, and the "Vol. 2" on Volume 2 title-page not altered in manuscript. According to Henrey, "there is no uniformity with regard to the number of dedications contained in the various issues, or in the order in which the preliminary leaves are arranged." Josiah Messer, who has signed the front endpapers at an early date (and who is perhaps responsible for the extensive manuscript caption on the extra-illustration of the Cinchona) was an 18th century London chemist and apothecary.

         La vérité des miracles opérés à l'intercession de M. de Paris et autre appellants, démontrée contre M. l'archevêque de Sens.

      1737 1737 - (2) - XXII - 5 - 36 64 - 38 - 84 - 46 - 56 - 34 - 84 - 65 - 63 - 34 - 45 - 24 - 40 - 18 - 12 - 33 - 20 (4) - IV - (2) - 72. Un volume In-4 en plein veau, dos à 5 nerfs orné de fleurons, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, roulette intérieure, tranches mouchetées. Léger manque sur la coiffe supérieur. Illustré de vingt gravures sur cuivres pleines pages dont une double, tout aussi surprenantes que virtuoses. Nées sous la plume du peintre Restout, elles représentent les guérisons miraculeuses des convulsionnaires et sont disposés en vis-à-vis, l'une représentant les affections du malade, et l'autre ses guérisons. Afin de renforcer l'idée fantastique, Restout à eu l'idée de disposer les organes miraculés en ornement de ses compositions, de façon parfois très déroutante. Comme la Demoiselle Coirin atteinte d'une paralysie de la jambe et d'un cancer du sein représentée allongée dans son lit avec au mur dans la pénombre un tableau représentant un sein et une jambe. Le carré de Montgeron est le plus ardent défenseur des convulsionnaires qui se livraient à leurs extases sur la tombe de Diacre Pâris au cimetière de Saint-Médard. Persuadé de la réalité des miracles et de la vérité des oracles, il devient le principal avocat des " miraculés " Durant quatre ans, accompagnés du peindre Jean Restout il dresse des portraits des miraculés qu'il fait graver à ses frais. Obéissant aux prédictions d'une convulsionnaire il décide alors en 1737 de remettre en mains propres au roi ce témoignage qu'il juge crucial. Arrêté sur l'ordre du cardinal de Fleury, Carré de Montgeron est incarcéré par lettre de cachet. De prisons en prisons, il mourra interné en 1754. L’intégralité de la première édition de son ouvrage fut brûlée dans les fossés de la bastille, soit 5 000 volumes détruits, mais Carré de Montgeron avait prévu cette réaction et ordonné l'impression d'une seconde édition à la date de l'original imprimée en hollande. On reconnaît la véritable originale, ce qui est le cas dans cet exemplaire à ce qu'elle pore sur le titre la mention " Tome premier". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Ars Decifratoria sive scientia occultas scripturas solvendi et legendi

      Weygand, Helmstadii 1737 - Plein vélin moderne. Un volume petit in-8 (162x100 mm), 32-160-(12) pages et un tableau dépliant . Le tableau est coupé court en queue, touchant la dernière ligne. L'art de déchiffrer, précédé d'une dissertation historique sur les différentes manières d'écrire en chiffres, employées par les anciens & les modernes. Édition originale de cette rare étude sur l'histoire de la cryptographie, les théories de cryptage et les méthodes de décryptage. Y sont décrits, le chiffrement, la substitution alphabétique, la dislocation de lettres, l'invention de symboles et l'utilisation d'alphabets étrangers modifiés. La cryptographie a été principalement utilisée dans la diplomatie secrète. De nombreuses méthodes sont illustrées dans le texte et la table dépliante montre l'Abacus numeralis de Kircher. Lorsque Breithaup avait publié dix ans auparavant un opuscule sur l'art d'écrire en chiffres (Disquisitio historica, critica, curiosa de variis modis occulte scribendi, repris ici en première partie), il s'était engagé à donner aussi ce traité sur l'art de déchiffrer. Si Breithaup a tant tardé a tenir sa promesse, c'est qu'il révèle dans "Ars decifratoria" les secrets qui lui ont rapporté de nombreux profits, au travers des leçons particulières qu'il a données à ce sujet dans les universités d'Iène, de Halle & d'Hemstadt. Dans sa préface, l'auteur appréhende le fait que ces élèves qui ont payé ses leçons si cher, ne lui sachent mauvais gré de les lui voir donner pour rien au public. La première partie (l'art de chiffrer) traite de l'origine l'écriture et du cryptage des informations. Il évoque l'écriture mystérieuse et symbolique juive, les trois alphabets cabalistiques publiés par Cornélius Agrippa, et aussi deux autres alphabets Hébreux servant à la composition de talismans. Il cite diverses techniques de cryptage des grecs et des romains (par exemple l'usage d'une baguette autour de laquelle un parchemin était enroulé avant l'écriture du message. Un fois déroulé le message était illisible, sauf pour le récipiendaire qui enroulait à nouveau le parchemin sur une baguette identique). Il étudie aussi les chiffres utilisés par les premiers chrétiens, les normands, les germains ainsi que les travaux de Trithème, Jérome Cardan, Anasthase Kircher, Gaspar Schott & Jean Baptiste Porta. Dans la seconde partie (l'art de déchiffrer) l'auteur traite du décryptage des codes en chiffres, en caractères grecs, arabes, chimiques, astronomiques ou tels autres que l'on puisse imaginer.

      A Londres : Chez Pierre Dunoyer . ; Et se trouvent a Paris : Chez Rollin fils ., 1737. - 1737 Memoires of Marquis de Feuquiere French Military Tactics MAP Nine Years WAR The de Pas de Feuquieres name was synonymous with French military during the 17th- and 18th-centuries, most-notably Isaac Manasses de Pas who was a Marquis who played an important role in the Wallenstein negotiations and led troops in various battles during the Nine Years War including the Siege of Thionville. This collection of memoires of Isaac de Feuquiere was gathered and edited by his grandson Antoine de Feuquiere who was also a notable French military officer. This account provides a look into French military tactics and were a primary source for Voltaire as he composed his ‘Siècle de Louis XIV.’ This rare four-volume set features 13 folding illustrations including views of the Rhine, the Spanish Netherlands, battle plans of Fleurus, Ramillies, and Malplaquet. Feuquiere also discusses military techniques and reviews for French officers. This advice comes from his experience in war and not simply from military theory.

Figurative cartouche showing Süleyman I with his entouage.; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724), Nuremberg, was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria).

         Africa secundum legitimas Projectionis Steriographica regulas

      Artist: Homann Erben (d) ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: (d)1737 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 46 x 55; - description: Map of Africa with decorative cartouche, depicting animals and inhabitants of Afica.; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

         The Gardeners Dictionary:

      London: Printed for the Author, and sold by C. Rivington,, 1737 & 1739. containing the methods of cultivating and improving the kitchen, fruit and flower garden, as also the physick garden, wilderness, conservatory, and vineyard; According to the Practice of the most Experienc'd Gardeners of the Present Age. 2 volumes, folio (345 x 227 mm). Contemporary half calf, raised bands to spine with 2 black labels, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Engraved frontispiece and 8 plates, 3 folding, printed in double columns, illustrations in text. Bookplate of Sir Joseph Radcliffe to front pastedown in both volumes, ownership inscription of Thomas Percival to title page of vol. 2. Some scuffing to boards, a little wear to extremities and tips, a couple of marks to contents and a few marginal annotations, overall quite clean. A very good set. Third edition of the first comprehensive dictionary of gardening. Philip Miller (1691–1771) was the most distinguished and influential British gardener of the eighteenth century. His dictionary is a noteworthy milestone in the great sequence of encyclopaedias and dictionaries of that era, fit to rank with John Harris's Lexicon Technicum (1704), Chamber's Cyclopaedia (1728), Johnson's Dictionary (1755), the Encyclopaedia Britannica (1768), and ultimately the great French Encyclopédie (1751–1772) of Denis Diderot. Like Harris, Miller was a fellow of the Royal Society. He was a major contributor to Nathan Bailey's Dictionarum Britannicum (1730), which was the initial model for Johnson's Dictionary, and Johnson in turn relied heavily on Miller for his botanical entries. Johnson knew Miller personally: Boswell quotes him repeating Miller's approbation of the technical accuracy of Phillips's Cyder. The Gardeners Dictionary reached eight editions during Miller's lifetime. An appendix dating to 1735 is bound in at the end of this volume.
