Friedrich Hoffmann (1660-1742). Heirs of Hippocrates 456. ‘. Hoffmann was a prolific writer and in this work provides a comprehensive view of the medicine of his day. He was the chief designer of the mechanico-dynamic system, in which health is conceived of as normal movement and disease as disturbed movement. Hoffmann based his treatment on the use of sedatives, tonics, alteratives and evacuants, according to the condition responsible for causing the disease. Apart from his system, Hoffmann was one of the premier practioners of his day and one of the first to give good description of appendicitis, chlorosis, rubella, and convulsive asthmas with dropsy. He also wrote treatises on such subjects as pediatrics, physiology, pathology, medical ethics, and personal hygiene.’Welcome III, p.285; G & M 72 ‘Hoffmann of Halle was the most important of the Iatromechanists. He believed an ether-like "vital fluid" to be present in the nervous system and to act upon the muscles, giving them "tonus".’ Additional postage may be necessary.

        Dictionnaire Historique et Critique par Mr. Pierre Bayle. Cinquime dition

      Amsterdam, Leiden, The Hague, Utrecht, 1740. Four folio volumes. The editors of "Printing and the Mind of Man" say, of Bayle and his Dictionnaire (no. 155): "Bayle, a Protestant philosopher, wrote his ?Historical and Critical Encyclopedia? in his voluntary exile in Rotterdam as an anti-clerical counterblast to Morri?s work, in order, as he put it, ?to rectify Morri?s mistakes and fill the gaps.? Bayle championed reason against belief, philosophy against religion, tolerance against superstition. In a seemingly detached way he posed arguments and counter-arguments side by side, restricting his most daring insinuations to the renvois (references) which supplemented the actual entries. For over half a century, until publication of the Encyclopdie, Bayle?s Dictionnaire dominated enlightened thinking in every part of Europe." With its four-volume Supplment: Chauffepr, Jacques George de, 1702-1740. Nouveau Dictionnaire Historique et Critique pour Servir de Supplment ou de Continuation au Dictionnaire Historique et Critique de Mr. Pierre Bayle... Amsterdam & La Haye, 1750-1756. Four folio volumes; first edition. Chauffepr, a Protestant philosopher and French exile in Holland much like Bayle, extended the Dictionnaire by adding material, some translated from English, some composed by himself. There are many more entries on scientists-- Leipniz, Mersenne, Galileo, Gallois. While not of the revolutionary importance of Bayle, Chauffepr reflects awareness of the importance of science, particularly English science, during the early eighteenth century. For Chauffepr see Cioranescu 18845. NUC 104: 658. These eight volumes, former property of the Providence Public Library, are handsomely rebound with red leather spines; condition of the interior is superb. stock#OB450 extra-oversize.

      London, Printed for James Hodges..., 1740. Large 8vo, 205 x 123 mms., pp. viii, 513 [514 notice about entry on Quakers, 515 - 530 Index, 531 - 534 adverts], including half-title, contemporary calf, red leather label; corners worn, joints slightly cracked, top and base of spine chipped, but a reasonably good copy, with the contemporary autograph "G. Anderton" on the recto of the front free end-paper. Martin (1705 - 1782) was one of the 18th century's many polymaths, as skilled at explaining logarithms as he was in discussing history. His first published work, The Philosophical Grammar (1735) was a compendium of current knowledge about scientific matters, while this work, first published in 1737, gives the self-educating reader a useful overview of numerous topics in the arts. Despite his numerous skills and his wide-ranging activities and retailer of scientific apparatuses, he was made bankrupt in 1782.

Pierre Donis qui naquit en 1643 à Paris et décéda en 1718 dans la même ville, fut un célèbre chirurgien et anatomiste. Il fut l'élève de Joseph-Guichard du Verney. Il fut nommé chirurgien par Louis XIV en 1672 afin d'enseigner l'anatomie selon la circulation du sang, alors même que la Faculté de médecine de Paris contestait la découverte de la circulation du sang par William Harvey en 1628. En 1680, il devint médecin et chirurgien de la reine Marie-Thérèse d'Autriche. En 1712, il devint médecin et premier chirurgien du Dauphin, de la maison de France et de plusieurs princes de sang. Enfin en 1713, il devint accoucheur de la duchesse de Berry. Il enseigna l'anatomie et la chirurgie au Jardin du Roi (actuel Jardin des Plantes). En 1715, il fut appelé au chevet de Louis XIV mourant et se prononça pour l'amputation de l'une des jambes du monarque, mais il était trop tard. Outre son principal ouvrage de ''Cours d'opérations de chirurgie.'', il publia également: ''Anatomie de l'homme suivant la circulation du sang'' (1690), ''Dissertation sur la mort subite'' (1709), ''Traité des accouchements'' (1718).

August 1685 in Kirchheim unter Teck; † 21. April 1772 in Augsburg) war ein deutscher lutherischer Theologe mit pietistischer Ausrichtung. 1731/32 vertrieb der Erzbischof von Salzburg Leopold Anton von Firmian seine evangelischen Untertanen aus seinem Wirkungsbereich. Urlsperger, der sich um die Vertriebenen kümmerte, trat mit der englischen Gesellschaft zur Verbreitung christlicher Erkenntnis in Verbindung und diese übertrug ihm die Sorge für die Überführung verschiedener Abteilungen dieser Salzburger Exulanten nach England und von da nach Georgia in Amerika, wo sie südlich von Savannah die Pflanzstadt Ebenezer gründeten. In Wernigerode wurden die ersten Prediger und Lehrer der Kolonie, Bolze und Gronau ordiniert. Urlspergers verfasste Schriften und Rechenschaftsberichte über Wachstum, Einnahmen und Ausgaben dieser ersten deutsch-evangelische Ansiedlung, von denen hier 3 vorliegen, zuzüglich eines ersten Berichtes der beiden Theologen Bolze und Gronau. 1500

        LETTERA AUTOGRAFA FIRMATA.

      1 p. (mm. 305x206), datata: Modena 3. Agosto 1740, senza destinatario, di 23 righe. (1740). "Giacchè V.E. mi ha favorito della lettera venuta da Tolosa, per cui le rendo mille grazie, ed insieme con tanta gentilezza mi si esibisce di far giungere colà la risposta: io mi prevaglio ben volentieri delle grazie sue.. Tanto poco è poi quello, ch'io ho detto di V.E. nella P. ll delle Antichità Estensi, che certo io non meritava un sì benigno gradimento.. Desidererei io occasioni più proprie per attestare a Lei, ed anche al Pubblico, la stima e l'ossequio particolare che io professo a lei, e alla sua Nobil Casa..". Con fioriture, altrimenti ben conservata. "Letterato e grande storico, autore dei "Rerum Italicarum Scriptores" e degli "Annali della storia d'Italia", è soprattutto nelle "Antiquitates italicae medii aevi" che egli dà la misura della sua grandezza di storico".

        Tractat vom Spiel, worinn die vornehmsten zum Recht der Natur, und zur Sitten-Lehre, gehörigen Puncte … untersuchet werden. Nach der andern (...) Auflage aus dem Frantzösischen übersetzt von Jacob Wilhelm Lustig

Hugo Grotius`. - "Der Grund für B.s Berühmtheit liegt nicht nur in seinen Übertragungen der wichtigsten Schriften zum Naturrecht ins Französische, zu deren Verbreitung in den frankophonen Ländern er erhebl. beitrug, sondern ebenso sehr in seiner innovativen Art, Vernunft und Offenbarung in Einklang zu bringen. Mehr Moralist als Jurist, muss B. als Vorreiter des reformator. inspirierten Naturrechts im franz. Sprachraum bezeichnet werden. Zu seinen wichtigsten Werken gehören `Traité du Jeu` (1709) und `Traité de la morale des Pères` (1728)" (Hist. Lex. der Schweiz). - Leder etwas beschabt.

        Peg Woffington - Original Miniature

      original miniatuire portrait of the famous Irish actress painted directly onto porcelain and in its original wood and brass embellishment surround. Lovely item in very good condition. As a child of ten, she was recruited by an Italian rope dancer called Violante and played Polly Peachum in a Lilliputian production of The Beggar's Opera. She danced and acted at various Dublin theatres until 1740, when her success as Sir Harry Wildair in The Constant Couple led to her being given her London debut at Covent Garden; she became well known as an actress thereafter.Woffington enjoyed success in the role of Sylvia in The Recruiting Officer. She performed at Drury Lane for several years and later returned to Dublin, appearing in a variety of plays. Her most well-received performances were in comic roles, such as elegant women of fashion like Lady Betty Modish and Lady Townley, and breeches roles. She was impeded in the performance of tragedy by a harsh tone in her voice that she strove to eliminate.She lived openly with David Garrick, the foremost actor of the day, and her other love affairs (including liaisons with Edward Bligh, 2nd Earl of Darnley and MP Charles Hanbury Williams) were numerous and notorious. She became friend and mentor to the socialite/actress sisters, Elizabeth and Maria Gunning, and also shared the stage with the likes of Charles Macklin, Kitty Clive, and the tragedienne Susannah Maria Arne (then known as Cibber, following her marriage to Theophilus Cibber). Margaret Woffington in bed after her paralysis, circa 1758.She was made president (and the only female member) of Thomas Sheridan's Beefsteak Club in Dublin. She also educated and supported her sister Mary (usually known as Polly), and cared for and pensioned her mother.For whatever reason, Woffington left Garrick in about 1744 and moved to Teddington, into a house called Teddington Place. In 1754 she became the beneficiary of the will of the Irish impresario Owen Swiny.On 3 May 1757, she was playing the part of Rosalind in As You Like It when she collapsed on stage. She rallied, but would never act again, lingering with a wasting illness until 1760. She built and endowed by will some almshouses at Teddington, and was buried in St. Mary's Church, the parish church.

        Nuova Carta Dell Imperio Della China

      ALBRIZZI, Giovanni Battista, 1740. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 13 x 16 3/4". Page measures 14 3/8" x 19 1/2". This map of China covers from the Bay of Bengal east to the Kamchatka Peninsula. Labeled in both Dutch and Italian, it describes the boundaries of the region during the period of the Qing Dynasty as construed, often incorrectly, by European imperial powers. Despite some geographical inconsistencies, the region is highly detailed with towns, churches, rivers and lakes, and mountains are depicted pictorially. Moreover, a number of scattered notes go into more detail about the political and topographical features of the area. This scarce map appeared in "Atlante Novissimo Che Contiene tutte le parti del Mondo," an Italian edition of De Lisle's Atlas. Albrizzi worked with Isaac Tirion, a Dutch publisher, to update the maps for this edition. The map is in very good condition with no chips or tears and slight scattered foxing throughout. Dark impression on thick, bright paper and wide margins as issued. Giovanni Battista Albrizzi (1698-1777) was a prominent Venetian publisher of books and maps. He inherited his business from his father and was part of a family active in publishing and bookselling in Venice for 150 years. In addition, he edited a weekly bulletin, "Novelle della Repubblica delle Lettere," which reviewed and commented on books published throughout Europe. This map of China is one example of the valuable work Albrizzi produced.

Illustrated with life-like plates]. s'Gravenhage, Pieter van Thol, 1740. Octavo. [xxii]538pp. +[1]f. Contains approximately 36 engravings by Noach van der Meer, roughly based on Adriaen Van de Venne's illustrations for the first edition of 1625.

With small marginal tears to pp. 39,84,108,183, and 411, small worm hole along inner margin of pp. 108-120, and small dampstain to corners of pp. 378- 428, none of these flaws affecting the printed area.

London: printed for C. Bathurst etc, 1774. Together, twelve volumes. The Tatler Bound in period full calf, raised bands, red morocco spine labels bordered in gold. Tight copies to all 4 volumes, bindings starting to crack but tight and not disbound. Contents exceptionally clean, toning to the edges of the endpapers. Owner’s signature on the top of the front pastedown on each volume. 4 1/4 x 7. Inches. (nos. 1-271 complete with index to each volume), running from 2 April 1709 to 31 March 1711: "Of the 271 numbers, Steele wrote 188, Addison 42, and the two joint 36 - Davis lists six numbers, 21, 31, 67, 68, 249 and 248, as contributed by Swift (or containing letters or 'hints furnished by him'). In addition, Aitken attributes to Swift letters in Nos. 59, 63, 71, 190 and 195, and suggests that he was part author of Nos. 32, 66, 230 and 238" (Rothschild). Complete as issued, The Spectator Bound in period full calf, raised bands and leather labels. Tight copies for all 8 volumes. Some edge wear and toning to the bindings, 4 of 8 labels with some chipping. Contents exceptionally clean. Edge toning to the title page and ffep from contact with the leather binding. Same to back ffep. Small ink W written at the top fore edge corner of each title-page. Consisting of No 1 March 1, 1710 through No. 635 December 20, 1714. Overall a nice tight set. Macaulay considered them "perhaps the finest Essays, both serious and playful, in the English language." The Tatler addressed subjects ranging from "all accounts of Gallantry, Pleasure, and Entertainment" to poetry and learning, from proper etiquette to the character of the ideal gentleman. The Spectator "appeared daily, and was immensely popular, particularly with the new growing middle-class readership. The papers are mainly concerned with manners, morals, and literature.
