        PLAN DE PARIS Commencé l’année 1734, dessiné et gravé sur les ordres de Messire Michel-Etienne Turgot, Marquis de Sousmons, Seigneur de St-Germain-sur-Eaulne, Vatierville, et autres Lieux.... Achevé de graver en 1739. Lev&eacute

      Paris,, 1739.. In folio (cm. 56,5 x 45), legatura alle armi della città di Parigi in p. marocchino rosso (con aloni e lievi abrasioni), cornice dorata ai piatti con fiori di giglio agli angoli, dorso a cordoni con ricca decoraz. e tit. oro, dentelles dorate ai risg., tagli sup. dorati. "Prima edizione" di una delle più famose piante di Parigi, nota come le ?"Plan de Turgot?". E?' una pianta della città - a volo d?'uccello - di eccezionale formato, suddivisa in 20 tavole a doppia pagina, inc. in rame e numerate (ciascuna di 80 x 51,5 cm.), accompagnata da 1 tavola con l?'intera area (inc. al tratto) che serve da Indice (84 x 64 cm.). Il titolo è inciso al centro di due tavole unite (160 x 54 cm.). La pianta copre un?'area presso a poco corrispondente ai primi undici arrondissements dell?'epoca moderna. Di tutte le rappresentazioni cartografiche di Parigi questa, realizzata per ordine di Michel Etienne Turgot (1690-1751), capo della municipalità parigina, è la più seducente. L'artista-topografo Louis Bretez - che la disegnò dal 1734 al 1736 - non redasse una pianta, magari perfetta, ma una veduta prospettica che ci consente di attraversare con gli occhi i monumenti, le case, gli hotels, le piazze, i giardini, i boulevard, i sobborghi, le chiese, i castelli e avere della città una immagine parlante. Parigi nei primi decenni del Settecento non possedeva ancora vedute prospettiche che potessero confrontarsi con le vedute urbane realizzate a Venezia, Roma e Napoli tra Cinque e Seicento. Parigi giunse in ritardo al suo "ritratto di città", ma recuperò splendidamente il terreno. Come tutte le grandi vedute urbane anche questa di Parigi nasce dall' esigenza di celebrare la città, di glorificarne la bellezza e la prosperità. Il committente Turgot, padre di Anne Robert Jacques, ministro di Luigi XVI, fu un amministratore illuminato e un amico della Repubblica delle Lettere: la sua fu un' impresa fuori dall'usuale ed ebbe la fortuna di trovare in Bretez, membro dell?'Accademia Reale di Pittura e Scultura e professore di prospettiva, un artista all'altezza delle sue ambizioni. Esemplare stampato su carta forte; la tav. 11 restaur. per strappo ma complessivam. ben conservato.

        Broadside Declaring War on Spain

      London 1739 - Broadside, "His Majesty's Declaration of War Against the King of Spain," John Bassett, printer, London, October 19, 1739, 16 x 21 in., with contemporary manuscript notes and docketing, October 23, 1739. Parliament goes to war after Robert Jenkins displays his detached ear. This document launched what was known as the War of Jenkins's Ear, 1739 - 1748, which became a part of the larger War of Austrian Succession after three years. After being accused of piracy, Robert Jenkins, captain of a British merchant ship, had his ear cut off following the boarding of his vessel by the Spanish coastal guard in 1731. Jenkins then allegedly exhibited his severed ear in Parliament the next year. The broadside cites the predations of Spanish privateers in the West Indies as the cause of hostilities. A manuscript note reads "This Declaration of War was published in solemn form at the usual places in London on Tuesday 23d October 1739." Seven copies are listed in the English Short Title Catalog of the British Library.ConditionGood. Moderate wear.

        Opera varia inunum congesta. 2 Bde in 1 Bd. = De Motu Cordis et de Aneurismatibus.

      - Venice, Sanctus Pecori, 1739, Folio, XXXVI, 262 pp.; XII, 265, (25) pp., with 2 großen gefalteten Karten, 10 Kupfertafeln, Pappband d.Zt; frisches , feines Exemplar. The best, the moste complete and rarest edition of the collected works of this great Italian clinician. This rare and important collection contains: - - De Subitaneis Mortibus Libri duo. - Differtatio de Nativis, deque Adventitiis Romani Coli Qualitatibus, cui accedit Hiftoria Epidemiae Rheumaticae, quae per hyemem anni 1709. vagata eft. - De Noxiis Paludum Effluviis Libri duo. - Dissertatio Hiftorica de Bovilla Pefte, ex Campaniae fin ibus anno 1713. Latio importata, cui accedit Confilium de Equorum Epidemia, quae Romae graflata eft anno 1712. - De Recta Studiorum Medicorum ratione instituenda. - Humani Corporis Anatomica Synpfis. - De humorum secretionibus in genere, ac praecipue de bilis in hepate separatione. - An acidum ex sanguine extrahi queat. - De triplici Inteftinorum Polypo. - De Phyfiognomia. - De Sede Cogitantis animae. - De Ortu, Vegetatione, ac textura fungorum. - De Plinianae Villae Ruderibus. - Forma, ac Methodus delcribendae morborum hiftoriae. - De Motu Cordis & Aneurysmatibus. - - Lancisi laid the basis for cardiac pathology with his observation of valvular lesions and cardiac dilatation in correlation with symptoms of disease. He was the first to describe cardiac syphilis, he also notable as an epidemiologist, with clear insight into the theory of contagion. The copperplates depict the cardio-vascular system, the maps relate to the Pontine Marshes near Rome. - In 'De Motu Cordis et de Aneurysmatibus', in which the germ of many later notions can be found. For instance, Lancisi gave very clear descriptions of warthy growths on valves and of dilated and strongly pulsating cervical veins in right heart dilatation (differentiating them from the pulsations in chlorosis). It should be noted that Lancisi described also correctly the genuine arterial (in particular aortic) and caridac aneurysm, as we know it. Still more pertinent to present day cardiology was his 'De subitaneis Mortibus'. Of course the definition of sudden death was not so strict as it is now - much debated as this question has been in our own time - but it is interesting that Pope Clement XI, alarmed by a recent increase of the number unexpected deaths among prominent people in Rome, ordered Lancisi to inquire by autopsy the cause of every sudden or quickly occuring death in the years 1705 and 1706. The findings proved far from uniform and the epicrisis (Scholium) was often couched in vague terms of iatrochemical hypotheses. However, in some cases of rupture of an aortic aneurysm was found and in ohter instances an aneurym (dilatation) of the heart which probably was due to hypertension or aortitis with aortic insufficiency. In one young patient with valvular disease and a large spleen, bacterial endocarditits may have been present. - Lancisi did also important research on malaria, he pointed out that the fevers afflicting Rome and the surrounding countryside were closely related to the presence of swamps, which encouraged the multiplying of mosquitoes, By a brillant intuition Lancisi attributed the spread of the disease to these insects, and strongly advocated the draining of the swamps - unfortunately without success. - During his life he collected a personal medical library of considerable size (well over 20,000 volumes) and interest, which he generously donated to the Hospital of Santo Spirito; the library is now named for Lancisi. - - Grundlage der Pathologie der Gefässe und des Herzens! - Giovanni Maria Lancisi (1654-1720) gehört zu den großen römischen Ärzten. Er war der Leibarzt dreier Päpste. Seine klassichen Schriften behandeln die Pathologie der Herzkrankheiten, die Seuchenlehre und Tropenmedizin. Lancisi veröffentlichte 1784 die 1582 entstandenen Tafeln des Eustachius, die bis dahin vergessen in der Vatikanischen Bibliothek lagerten. - - -cf. G.M. 71, 391, . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Though he came from a poor family of Vignola in the district of Modena, he received opportunities to devote himself to the higher studies. Having first been instructed by the Jesuits, he studied law, philosophy, and theology at the University of Modena, he plainly showed his extraordinary talents, especially in literature and history. In 1694 he was ordained priest. In 1695 Count Charles Borromeo called him to the college at the Ambrosian library in Milan, where he immediately started collecting unedited ancient writings of various kinds.

        Verses on the Death of Doctor Swift. Written by Himself: Nov. 1731

      London: Printed by C. Bathurst, at the Middle-Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, 1739 - First edition of Swift's poem, which, to cite the heading of p.

[In the troubles of our dearesr friends, we find something which is not altogether displeasing]. On the authority of Dr. William King, to whose oversight Swift entrusted the publication, all three of the first London editions were much abridged and purged of verses King deemed offensive to royalty and religion; in addition, King inlcluded 61 lines from "The Life and Genuine Character" of 1733.

        Essai de Physique...avec une Description de nouvelles sortes de Machines Pneumatiques et un Recueil d&#39;Expériences...Traduit du Hollandois par Mr. Pierre Massuet

      Engraved frontis. port. & 34 folding engraved plates (incl. 5*). Titles in red & black. xxv, [3], 502 pp.; 1 p.l., 501 [i.e. 503]-864, 869-914, [32], 63, 8 pp. Two vols. Large 4to, orig. boards (some minor foxing & browning, a little waterstaining in Vol. II). Leyden: S. Luchtmans, 1739. First edition in French of one of the best 18th-century introductions to Newtonian physics. This is a book filled with interesting experiments and problems. Some of the subjects covered are gravity, mechanics, machinery, elasticity, electricity, capillarity, hydraulics, optics (with a long account of vision and the eye), celestial mechanics, comets, and the weather system. Musschenbroek (1692-1761), professor of natural philosophy and mathematics at Utrecht and, later, professor of experimental physics at Leyden, was one of the most celebrated physicists and most important investigators of his time. The experiments described in his books have become classics in elementary instruction. "Underlying Musschenbroek&#39;s lectures demonstrated with experiments was the experimental philosophy...the principal source of inspiration was Newton, but Galileo, Torricelli, Huygens, Reaumur, and others were important to this school."-D.S.B., IX, p. 596. Nice set in original state. &#10087; Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 232-33. Wheeler Gift Cat. 300. .
