Der hübsch gearbeitete Ganzlederband weist kaum Alterungsspuren auf und befindet sich in sehr gutem Zustand. Auch innen sehr gutes, nahezu tadelloses Exemplar; Seiten sauber und nahezu fleckenfrei sowie ohne Bräunungen; lediglich die letzten Blatt mit schmaler Randfleckigkeit.

        Cours d'architecture qui comprend les ordres de Vignole, avec des commentaires, les figures & les descriptions de ses plus beaux bâtiments, & de ceux de Michel-Ange [...] & géneralement tout ce qui concerne l'art de bastir

      New edition, after the first published in 1691, illustrated with a frontispiece and 107 boards including 103 numbered and many on double page. This edition has been reworked, and corrected and brought up to date; previous editions had only 84 boards, many were added on parts that had not been treated like stairs, chimneys ... This new edition had to reflect the architecture of 1730 and all the changes that have been operating in the taste since the first edition and the changes that brought the Blond in the following editions. The boards are included in the pagination and do not benefit from a special paper, but they are particularly well printed and engraved, with beautiful contrasts.

        El Triunfo del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus, en la admirable vida de la V. M. Sor Margarita Alacoque, religiosa de la Visitacion de Santa Maria en el Convento de Paray, de quien se sirviò Dios para establecer la devocaion del Sagrado Corazon. Traducida en español por D. Joseph Antonio de Guirior.

      Pamplona, Imprenta de la viuda de Burguete, s.d. (c. 1738). - in-4. LXII. 498pp. Demi-basane à coins de parchemin, dos lisse orné à froid et à l'or, pièce de titre de maroquin vert, tranches mouchetées bleues (reliure du 19e siècle, frottée). Edition Originale, publiée à Pampelune, de cette rare traduction en espagnol de la première hagiographie de Sainte Marguerite-Marie, par l'homme d'Eglise Jean-Joseph Languet de Gergy (1677-1753). Publiée initialement à Paris en 1729, cette biographie de Marguerite Alacoque (1647-1690) suscita de violentes attaques de la part des Jansénistes, opposés au culte du Sacré-Coeur dont la "sainte de Paray" était l'une des inspiratrices. Anti-janséniste notoire, évêque de Soisson et membre de l'Académie française, Languet de Gergy était un pamphlétaire infatigable qui exerça une grande influence contre les philosophes, et combattit vigoureusement les candidatures de Montesquieu et de Voltaire à l'Académie. Originaire de la ville de Aoiz, en Navarre, le traducteur Joseph Antonio de Guirior était le frère de Manuel de Guirior, officier de l'armée navale espagnole et administrateur colonial. Intérieur bruni, mouillures. [Attributes: First Edition]

AS ALSO, A LARGE AND ACCURATE MAP OF THOSE COUNTRIES...WRITTEN ORIGINALLY IN HIGH GERMAN...NOW FAITHFULLY TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH

      London: Printed for J. Brotherton, J. Hazard, W. Meadows [and others], 1738. [4],ix,[3],463pp. plus large folding engraved map, "Nova descriptio geographica Tattariae Magnae..." (by Seale, dated 1737, sheet size: 26 x 39 inches); folding woodcut map, folding letterpress chart, ten engraved plates (three folding) at rear, and numerous illustrations in the text. Quarto. Bound to style in antique calf, spine ornately gilt with leather label. Bookplate on front pastedown. Small repaired tear to one leaf. Internally clean. Near fine. Second edition in English of a key work on Siberia, with an important large folding map of the region. A Swedish officer taken prisoner during Charles XII's campaign in Russia, Strahlenberg was held captive in Siberia for thirteen years. Situated in Tobolsk from 1711 to 1721, he was able to explore the lower basins of the Ob and Yenisey rivers, gathering the geographical information regarding the northern and eastern parts of Europe and Asia recorded in this book and its large folding map. The text is of great importance, offering much firsthand information - geographical, historical, and ethnographic - about Siberia and Great Tartary. The work also includes early descriptions of the linguistics of the region, with a Kalmyv vocabulary including the translations of Mongolian words. The most important aspect of the present work, however, is Strahlenberg's rare and significant map representing the Russian realm and Great Tartary, containing extensive information regarding Siberia. Strahlenberg utilized a wide array of sources in preparing his map. He used his own latitude calculations, as well as readings he had taken with Daniel Gottlieb Messerschmidt, a Prussian naturalist with whom he travelled in Russia. Measurements and other geographic information were obtained from other sources as well, including Swedish officers on different expeditions, Swedish and German travellers, and Russian cartographers and explorers. The present second English edition (after the first edition in 1730 and the first edition in English of 1736) was re-engraved by R.W. Seale. The map encompasses the area between 50° and 185° east longitude and 32° and 75° north latitude. It records the Russian territories from west of Moscow to Japan in the east and includes northern China, Tibet, and Turkestan in the south. Neighboring countries such as Poland, Persia, India, and Mongolia are documented. Numerous important geographic features are also represented: the Arctic and Pacific oceans, and the Caspian Sea; the Urals, Caucasus, and the Himalayan mountains; and the Gobi desert. The map is most notable, however, for its accurate representation of Siberia, particularly the settlement patterns of the region's various populations. Bagrow notes that after Semyon Remezov's map, Strahlenberg's map is the "most important source of historical- geographical information about Siberia." CORDIER 2713. COX I:194. LOWNDES III:2528.

        Hydrodynamica, sive De Viribus et Motibus Fluidorum Commentarii. Opus Academicum.

      Strasbourg: Johann Reinhold Dulsseker, 1738. First edition of Bernoulli's epochal work on fluid dynamics and the kinetic theory of gases, containing the famous 'Bernoulli equation' for fluid flow. "Besides introducing the first hydraulic theory of fluid flow, this book is the most remarkable general work in theoretical and applied mechanics written in the pre-Lagrangian period of the 18th century, based on a deep physical understanding of mechanical phenomena and presenting many new ideas ... Bernoulli's treatise was to influence the entire development of mechanics and, especially, of applied mechanics, for at least a century" (Landmark Writings, pp. 131-2). "In 1738 Bernoulli published Hydrodynamica. In this treatise, which was far in advance of his time in many ways, is his famous equation governing the flow of fluids in terms of speed, pressure, and potential energy, upon which much modern technology is based, especially aerodynamics" (DSB). "In this book Bernoulli presented the earliest adequate theory of motion of an incompressible fluid in tubes (vessels) and fluid outflow through orifices, introducing the notion of hydrodynamic pressure. However, the treatise is not restricted to theoretical hydraulics. In the subsequent sections, he opens up new branches of physics and mechanics. He develops the first model of the kinetic theory of gases, approaches the principle of conservation of energy, establishes a foundation for the analysis of efficiency of machines, and develops a theory of hydroreactive (water-jet) ship propulsion, including a solution of the first problem of motion of a variable-mass system. "Hydrodynamica contains many profound remarks on the physical background of a wide range of mechanical effects, and its study remains most edifying also to the modern reader ... However, many of his advanced ideas were far ahead of his time and met an adequate understanding only later. In the 19th century, J.-V. Poncelet called Bernoulli's treatise 'the immortal Hydrodynamica' in 1845, and Paul Du Bois-Reymond referred to 'the enormous wealth of ideas which assures this work one of the first places in the literature of Mathematical Physics of all ages' in 1859. "Hydrodynamica is founded mainly on the principle of conservation of 'living forces' (that is, kinetic energy). Bernoulli preferred to use this principle not in its traditional form, received with hostility by Newtonians, but in Christiaan Huygens's formulation that Bernoulli named the principle of equality between the actual descent and potential ascent: 'If any number of weights begin to move in any way by the force of their own gravity, the velocities of the individual weights will be everywhere such that the products of the squares of these velocities multiplied by the appropriate masses, gathered together, are proportional to the vertical height through which the centre of gravity of the composite of the bodies descends, multiplied by the masses of all of them'. "As to hydraulics proper, Bernoulli's considers only quasi-one-dimensional fluid motion, reducing any flow to this case by means of the hypothesis of plane sections: he does not distinguish between tubes and vessels. The principle of conservation of living forces was used for studying fluid flow by Bernoulli and also by Leonhard Euler. Coincidence of their results presented independently in the Petersburg Academy of Sciences in 1727 forced Euler to change his scientific plans and to leave this field for his elder colleague. When Bernoulli developed his work, besides studying many special cases of flow, he achieved two new fundamental results. He succeeded in explaining the nature and determining the value of the hydrodynamic pressure of moving fluids on the wall of tubes and he discovered the principal role of losses of living forces in the fluid flow, especially at sudden changes of the flow cross-sections. The former gave an instrument to engineers for calculation of tube strength and the latter served, in addition, a step to the general principle of conservation of energy. Bernoulli concluded also the sharp discussion of many years on the impact and reaction of emitting jets, giving the final solution of the problem" (Landmark Writings, pp. 132-3). Bernoulli composed the first version of this work at St. Petersburg in the early 1730s; its forthcoming publication was announced in the September 1734 issue of the journal Mercure Suisse. The following December Bernoulli, now in Basel, wrote to Euler: 'My Hydrodynamica is now really being printed by Mr. Dulsecker, and he gives me, besides 30 copies, even 100 thalers of royalty'. However, the actual printing of the book seems to have begun only in 1737, and it finally appeared at the end of April or the beginning of May 1738. In May, Bernoulli sent the first copies of his treatise to St. Petersburg and asked Euler for his comments, but the parcel was lost on the way and it was not until spring 1739 that Euler saw a copy of the book and warmly congratulated its author: "I have read through your incomparable Treatise with full attention and have drawn immense gain from it. I congratulate you, Sir, from all my heart on the felicitous execution of such a difficult and obscure topic, as well as on the immortal fame thus gained. The entire execution of the project deserves all conceivable attention, and all the more so as it is not accessible to rigorous mathematics, but demands the help of several important physical principles, which you have known to employ to indescribable advantage." In contrast to Euler's appreciation, Hydrodynamica became the focus of a bitter dispute between Daniel and his father Johann I. Although the details are disputed, it seems that Johann saw a copy of Daniel's book and used it to compose his own work on the subject, Hydraulica, keeping this secret from his son. Johann published Hydraulica at the beginning of 1743 in his Opera Omnia, adding the subtitle now for the first time disclosed and directly shown from purely mathematical foundations, 1732. Daniel was incensed by Johann's pretence that his Hydraulica had been composed some six years before his own work had been published, and the resulting rift between father and son was never completely healed. "Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782) was the second son of Johann Bernoulli, who first taught him mathematics. After studying philosophy, logic, and medicine at the universities of Heidelberg, Strasbourg, and Basel, he received an M.D. degree (1721). In 1723-24 he wrote Exercitationes quaedam Mathematicae on differential equations and the physics of flowing water, which won him a position at the influential Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg, Russia. Bernoulli lectured there until 1732 in medicine, mechanics, and physics, and he researched the properties of vibrating and rotating bodies and contributed to probability theory. In that same year he returned to the University of Basel to accept the post in anatomy and botany. By then he was widely esteemed by scholars and also admired by the public throughout Europe. "Between 1725 and 1749 Daniel won 10 prizes from the Paris Academy of Sciences for work on astronomy, gravity, tides, magnetism, ocean currents, and the behaviour of ships at sea. He also made substantial contributions in probability. He shared the 1735 prize for work on planetary orbits with his father, who, it is said, threw him out of the house for thus obtaining a prize he felt should be his alone. Daniel's prizewinning papers reflected his success on the research frontiers of science and his ability to set forth clearly before an interested public the scientific problems of the day. In 1732 he accepted a post in botany and anatomy at Basel; in 1743, one in physiology; and in 1750, one in physics" (Britannica) Barchas 175; Norman 215; Parkinson pp. 155-6; Roberts and Trent pp. 34-5.

        Pharmacopoea Hagana ex auctoritate magistratus poliatrorum opera instaurata et aucta.The Hague, Frederik Boucquet, 1738. 4to. With frontispiece engraved by David Coster and 2 folding engraved tables of pharmacological symbols with their meanings. Contemporary vellum.

      Daems & Vandewiele, p. 113; STCN (9 copies). Second edition, extensively revised and in the original Latin, of the official pharmacopoeia of the municipality of The Hague in the Netherlands. The index lists about 500 medicines. In some cases the text simply gives the name of the medicine with a reference to a published source, in others it gives a full recipe with the ingredients and instructions for their preparation. The 2-page engraved table, printed on two leaves that fold out so that one can consult them while reading the book, shows 90 symbols and gives their meanings, in alphabetical order. The magistrates and Collegium Medicorum of The Hague initiated the first edition, compiled by a committee of doctors from the Collegium, but even before it was published there were already complaints about its many and serious errors. They concluded that it was too late to correct them, but urged their colleagues to correct them in their own copies and they would be set right in a future edition, but in the event they had to wait 80 years for Boucquet's present second edition, with the three plates newly engraved for it.With owner's label. With an occasional minor brown spot and some faint offsetting, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding shows 1 small worm hole and is very slightly rubbed, but still very good. An important and attractive pharmacopoeia with an engraved frontispiece showing Asklepios and exotic plants.

      Jena, Verlegts Joh. Sebast. Rudolph. Buchbind., 1738. - 8 Bll., 147 S. (Titel in schwarz/rot), 6 Bll. (Index), Kl.-8°, Gemusterter Interimskarton d. Zt. Ferguson II, 570 (Anmerkung); Duveen 634; Ferchl 598; Neu 4438; Brüning 4327; Kopp II, 364. - Neben dieser gedruckten Fassung existiert auch ein Manuskript mit 40 farbigen Illustrationen in der ital. Biblioteca dell'Accademia Nazionale dei Lince, deren Bilder Bruno Nardini 1989 veröffentlichte: "Zoroaster. Ermetismo e alchemia nelle miniature di un manoscritto del sec. XVII". - An der rosenkreuzerischen Herkunft des Textes besteht kein Zweifel, so steht das "J.V.S.F.R.O." auf dem Titel für "J.V.S. Frater Rosae[crucis] Ordinis". In der Vorrede wird gemahnt, das Traktat vor den "Welt-Kindern" zu verbergen. Diese bisher befolgte Vorschrift erkläre, "warum unser Zoroaster bishierher nicht gemeine geworden; Imo: ich habe denselben auf meinen 50. jährigen Reisen nur ein einzigmal mehrenteils in Hebräischer Sprache gefunden, aber sehr unvollkommen gefunden und dennoch wurde es vor einen großen Schatz gehalten, daß, man auch viele 1.000 Thl. hätte davor geben wollen, man es dennoch davor nicht würde erhandeln können." (vgl. dazu Michael Stausberg: Faszination Zarathushtra: Zoroaster und die Europäische Religionsgeschichte. S.948ff). Der anonyme Autor ist wahrscheinlich der gleiche, der 1735 als "R. Abrahami Eleazaris" ein "Uraltes Chymisches Werk" veröffentlichte (dort im zweiten Teil mit separatem Titel: "Donum Dei Samuelis Baruch, des Juden Rabbi, Astrologi und Philosophi"). In der Slg.

        Introduzione alla Cosmografia ... edizione seconda si aggiunge in fine un Succinto Trattato di Navigazione dell' istesso Autore.Pistoia, Atto Bracali, 1738. 2 parts in 1 volume. 4to. With 3 folding half-page plates and 1 folding letterpress table, 2 full-page plates, and 17 additional woodcut diagrams in the text. Contemporary boards, covered with gold-brocade paper.

      Riccardi, col. M-109; not in Inst. Cent. Cat. Unico; De La Lande; Norman Library; Waller; KVK (2 copies plus 1 of Navigazione alone); WorldCat (2 copies); Poggendorf II, col. 44. Very rare second edition of Marchetti's Cosmografia (the last edition published during his lifetime), supplemented by the first edition of his treatise on navigation, both illustrated with woodcut diagrams. After several chapters on terminology, signs of the zodiac, etc., the author discusses the phases of the moon, solar and lunar eclipses, measurement, the Ptolemaic, Copernican, and Tychonic solar systems, and astronomical instruments (quadrants and terrestrial and celestial globes). Marchetti's Succinto Trattato di Navigazione , (Pistoia, Atto Bracali, 1738), though mentioned on the main title-page, has its own title-page, pagination and series of signatures, and was sometimes issued separately. It discusses navigational charts and their systems of parallels and meridians, compasses, measurement, etc. An early owner's inscription on the title-page has eaten through the paper, not affecting the printing but leaving some small holes and slightly staining the following page. Otherwise a very good copy in a local and contemporary gold-brocade binding, of a rare Italian cosmography.

        An Historico-Geographical description of the north and eastern parts of Europe and Asia; but more particularly of Russia, Siberia, and Great Tartary.

      London: Brotherton 1738 - 4to. (22.7 x 17.5 cm). xii, 463 pp., with large folding map by R.W. Seale, folding woodcut map, folding table, 10 engraved plates (3 folding including 1 map), woodcut tables and illustrations in text (some full-page); inscription in ink to title, repaired small marginal tear to pp. 311-312. Contemporary calf, gilt ruled covers, spine with raised bands, gilt lettering to second compartment, gilt decorative ornaments to the others; neatly rebacked to style. An excellent copy of this celebrated study of Russia and Mongolia, complete with the large map; with fine English provenance. The author, the Swedish officer Philipp Johann Tabert von Strahlenberg (1676&#150;1747), spent 10 years in captivity in Siberia between 1711 and 1722 following the defeat of Charles XII. During his stay in Russia he collected information and material on the languages and people of Ural and Altai stock, which became the basis for the present work. The text is of great importance, offering much first hand information - geographical, historical, and ethnographic - about Siberia and Great Tartary. The work also includes early descriptions of the linguistics of the region, with a Kalmyk vocabulary that includes translations of Mongolian words. The most important aspect of the present work, however, is von Strahlenberg's rare map depicting the Russian realm and Great Tartary, which contains extensive information about Siberia. Preparing the map, von Strahlenberg used his own latitudinal calculations as well as expedition accounts written by others. This copy is of the second English edition (after the first edition in German in 1730 and the first English of 1736), with the map specially re-engraved by Richard William Seale. It comes from the library of the Bickford family, who resided in the historic country house Dunsland, in the parish of Bradford, near Holsworthy, in Devon, England. The manor was home to four generations of the Bickford family from c. 1830. The house was sold in 1947 and destroyed by fire twenty years later. Cox I, 194; Crowther 2034.

        By Vertue and in Persuance of an Order of his Majesty&apos;s Most Honourable Privy Council ...

      1738 51 lines in two hands on two sides of a folded folio sheet, seven counter signatures in the left margin of the first page each with the same wax seal; old folds. v.g.&apos;... We do hereby in his Majesty&apos;s name command & require you imediately [sic] upon receipt hereof to issue out your severall precepts yr. severall & respective petty constables within your Division thereby requiring them & every of them upon Thursday the twenty fourth of August ... in the night time to make a general & privy search through their severall & respective constabularys for the finding and apprehending of all rogues, vagabonds & sturdy beggars and all straggling seamen who are fit to serve on board his Majesty&apos;s ships and such as they shall ...&apos; The constables were to be paid &apos;twenty shillings for each seaman fit for his Majesty&apos;s service & sixpence a mile for every mile they respectively travel not exceeding twenty miles&apos;. The warrant continues with a particular instruction &apos;to be & appear at the house of Benjamin Scaife - situate? in Stockton - in the said County on Friday the twenty fifth instant at ten of the clock in the forenoon to make returne to such of his Majesty&apos;s Justices of the Peace&apos;. The final six lines are in a different hand: &apos;To Mr John Jefferson Chief Constable for the South Division of Stockton ward ...&apos; In 1738 the British Navy employed under 54,000 seamen, a figure that rose to 98,000 in 1791. Impressment, or the &apos;press gang&apos; had been used in times of war from the mid 17th century onwards; by the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 a staggering 120,000 seamen were pressed in the British Navy. Although at peace in 1738 war fever had gripped Britain following the presentation to Parliament by Robert Jenkins in March, of a pickled ear claimed to have been cut off by a Spanish captain in 1731. This led to the War of Jenkins Ear in 1739 and was perhaps the reason for this warrant. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.
