Submissions for an appeal on behalf of the Estates General of Brittany relating to property covered by the jurisdiction of the royal abbey of Saint Melaine, Rennes. Subsequently sold, the value had been awarded to heirs of the Comte de Villeneuve (d. 1678), who had inherited the property from Henri de Bourbon, Marquis de Malause. The Estates General wished to assert the jurisdiction of the abbey (with themselves acting as court of appeal), against the Parlement of Paris, and also to divert the considerable sums from the beneficiary the Duc de la Rochefoucauld.

        TWO DISCOURSES: A DEAD FAITH ANATOMIZED and THE SELF-JUSTICIARY CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED

      Boston:: Reprinted by J. Draper, for D. Henchman in Cornhill,. 1740.. First combined edition of these two scarce works which were first published in 1697 and 1707, respectively. [Evans 4560-61, but with linking title page; Sabin 46788-89]. The complete titles are DEAD FAITH ANATOMIZED: A Discourse on the Nature, and the Danger, with the Deadly Symptoms of a Dead Faith, and THE SELF-JUSTICIARY CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED: Or, A Discourse Concerning the Difficulty and Necessity of Renouncing Our Own Righteousness. Pastor Samuel Mather (1651-1728), a cousin of Cotton Mather, is credited with healing a 10-year break in the Congregationalist First Church of Windsor (the oldest Congregational church in Connecticut) which had resulted in the formation of a separate Presbyterian Party of Windsor. This was surely no mean feat. Text pages are darkened, stained, occasionally torn and often edgeworn but intact and wholly readable. Freshly rebound in quarter leather with marbled boards. Only one copy of this combined edition has appeared at auction and that was in 1977. .

        A Single Plate, Tabula III from Tabulae sceleti et musculorum corporis humani

      [Leiden: Joannem & Hermannum Verbeek, 1740]. From the first edition of one of the greatest of all Anatomical Atlases. Tabula V, which features a human skeleton in a three-quarter view and seen from the rear is portrayed in a walking motion with the left hand raised and extended. Elephant folio, ca. 620 by 475 mm, single folio sheet, now mounted with the use of non-evasive corner tabs and protected by mylar. Very well preserved, fully intact with only the most minor evidence of age. ONE OF THE MAGNIFICENT PLATES FROM "AMONG THE MOST ARTISTICALLY PERFECT OF ANATOMICAL ATLASES..." Wandelaar placed his skeletons and musclemen against lush ornamental backgrounds to give them the illusion of vitality, using contrasts of mass and light to produce a three-dimensional effect. The most famous plate in the atlas depicts a skeletal figure standing in front of an enormous grazing rhinoceros, sketched by Wandelaar from the first living specimen in Europe, which had arrived at Amsterdam Zoo in 1741" (Norman). The plates in this large folio work, and in the four supplementary works in large folio with which it is bound, are unsurpassed for their cool, elegant aesthetic and scientific accuracy. They were drawn and engraved by Jan Wandelaer, a pupil of the engravers Jacob Fokema and Guillem van der Gouwen, and the painter Gerard de Lairesse, who prepared the drawings for Bidloo's atlas. Prior to working for Albinus Wandelaer worked for Friedrik Ruysch. Albinus, however, provided Wandelaar with the opportunity for the full expression of his talents as a draftsman and engraver. In an attempt to increase the scientific accuracy of anatomical illustration, Albinus and Wandelaar devised a new technique of placing nets with square webbing at specified intervals between the artist and the anatomical specimen and copying the images using the grid patterns. Wandelaer placed each figure in a carefully chosen landscape setting, and the artistic results are so pleasantly successful that the anatomical figures, although composed of many separate parts, appear to be actually stepping out of the picture.

        Optice: sive de Reflexionibus, Refractionibus, Inflexionibus et Coloribus Lucis, libri tres. Latine reddidit Samuel Clarke … Editio novissima.

      Lausannae & Geneva,: Marci-Michaelis Bousquet & Sociorum, 1740.. 4to. [iv], xxxii, 363, [1] pp. Half-title, engraved frontispiece portrait of Newton (engr. Jean-Louis Daudet after Vanderbank), 12 engraved folding plates, title vignette of 4 cherubs and a female figure, each using an optical instrument, representing learning optics/perspective (drawn by Delamoncein and engraved by Daudet), head & tail pieces and woodcut initial letters drawn by Papillon, index; first 11 leaves browned. Contemporary full vellum, green leather gilt-stamped spine label, edges with decorative red freckling as designed by the binder; foot of spine with faint ink marking “11-[??]”. Paper unevenly browned. Verso of title with small ink annotation “=1135=“; rear pastedown with another notation “á 20.Luglio 1801.” Very good. Third Latin edition, edited by Bousquet, with a dedication to Joannes Bernoulli. This edition contains the full array of 31 querries.* ¶ “Newton’s contributions to the science of optics – his discovery of the unequal refractions of rays of different color, his theory of color, and his investigations of ‘Newton’s rings,’ to mention only a few of the most noteworthy – place him among the premier contributors to that science. … Today we recognize that his work on optics offers unique rewards in its exciting, innovative conjunction of physical theory, experimental investigation, and mathematics, and in the revealing glimpse that it provides of a crucial period in the evolution of experimental science.” – Alan E. Shapiro, The Optical Papers of Isaac Newton: Volume 1, (1984), p. xi. ¶ Jean-Louis Daudét (1695-1756), who made the frontispiece and title vignette, was an engraver and print publisher active in Lyon, inherited business from his father Etienne Joseph Daudet. He flourished from 1722 till his death in 1756. Thereafter the business continued by his widow in association with his son-in-law Louis Martin Roch Joubert until 1773. ¶ “Newton famously declared that it is not the business of science to make hypotheses. However, it’s well to remember that this position was formulated in the midst of a bitter dispute with Robert Hooke, who had criticized Newton’s writings on optics when they were first communicated to the Royal Society in the early 1670’s. The essence of Newton’s thesis was that white light is composed of a mixture of light of different elementary colors, ranging across the visible spectrum, which he had demonstrated by decomposing white light into its separate colors and then reassembling those components to produce white light again. However, in his description of the phenomena of color Newton originally included some remarks about his corpuscular conception of light (perhaps akin to the cogs and flywheels in terms of which James Maxwell was later to conceive of the phenomena of electromagnetism). Hooke interpreted the whole of Newton’s optical work as an attempt to legitimize this corpuscular hypothesis, and countered with various objections.” ¶ “Newton quickly realized his mistake in attaching his theory of colors to any particular hypothesis on the fundamental nature of light, and immediately back-tracked, arguing that his intent had been only to describe the observable phenomena, without regard to any hypotheses as to the cause of the phenomena. Hooke (and others) continued to criticize Newton’s theory of colors by arguing against the corpuscular hypothesis, causing Newton to respond more and more angrily that he was making no hypothesis, he was describing the way things are, and not claiming to explain why they are. This was a bitter lesson for Newton and, in addition to initiating a life-long feud with Hooke, went a long way toward shaping Newton’s rhetoric about what science should be….” ¶ “The first edition of The Opticks (1704) contained only 16 queries, but when the Latin edition was published in 1706 Newton was emboldened to add seven more, which ultimately became Queries 25 through 31 when, in the second English edition, he added Queries 17 through 24. Of all these, one of the most intriguing is Query 28, which begins with the rhetorical question “Are not all Hypotheses erroneous in which Light is supposed to consist of Pression or Motion propagated through a fluid medium?” In this query Newton rejects the Cartesian idea of a material substance filling in and comprising the space between particles. Newton preferred an atomistic view, believing that all substances were comprised of hard impenetrable particles moving and interacting via innate forces in an empty space (as described further in Query 31).” – Newton’s Cosmological Queries – MathPages. ¶ Grace K. Babson, Sir Isaac Newton, (1950), 141; George J. Gray, A Bibliography of the Works of Sir Isaac Newton, 182; Wallis 182. See: Printing and the Mind of Man, 172.

Paul; Nürnberg, Homann heirs; Strasbourg, M. Schatz; Paris, [Roch-Joseph Julien (& Guillaume Dheulland?)], [1747]. Agenda 8vo (26 x 11 cm) With 25 folding engraved maps, consisting of 1 overview map and 24 numbered detail maps (each detail map 22 x 30 cm at a scale of 1:180.000). Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      M. van Egmond, Covens & Mortier, p. 122; IKAR (1 copy); Koeman, C & M 19 (4 copies); WorldCat (2 copies). An atlas of 24 numbered detail maps and an overview key map with the general title, presented as a conveniently portable theatre-of-war atlas "pour la commodité de Mrs. Officiers" toward the end of the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748). It was based on the much earlier maps of Eugène Henri Fricx or Friex (1644-1730), revised and published by his nephew George Fricx or Friex in Brussels. The maps could also be assembled to form a large wall map that would measure about 125 x 118 cm. It covers the southern parts of the Dutch Republic and the northeastern parts of what is now Belgium, covering The Hague and Leiden to Zutphen in the north and Brussels to Aix-la-Chapelle in the South.The atlas is undated, but the Newberry Library has a 1747 prospectus for it, issued by Guillaume Dheulland in Paris, who published a similar atlas of Italy with Julien in 1748 (though they did not share an address).In the present copy the maps are bound as double-page maps with both ends folded in, giving the tall and thin agenda format.The red pigment used to colour the edges appears to have browned the right-most fold of each map, and as a result several have torn along that fold. Otherwise the maps are in good condition, with a couple smaller tears only slightly affecting the image and marginal worm holes at the foot of a few maps, near the gutter. The binding shows some damage.

        32 plates for Naauwkeurige waarneemingen omtrent de veranderingen van veele insekten of gekorvene diertjes]. [Amsterdam?, ca. 1774?]. Folio. With 32 (of 33) mostly numbered plates showing the metamorphosis of butterflies, moths and other flying insects. Mounted in passe partouts and kept in a half cloth clamshell box.

      - Cf. Horn & Schenkling 52-53 (1740 & 1774 eds.); Hunt 514 (1740 ed.); Landwehr, Coloured Plates 104-105 (1740 & 1774); Nissen, ZBI 2357-2358 (1740 & 1774 eds.). 32 (of 33) plates depicting the metamorphosis of 67 (of 70) sorts of butterflies, moths and other flying insects in their natural surroundings, the specimens collected, drawn, and here in all but the first ten plates also etched and engraved, by Jacob l'Admiral (1700-1770), first published in 1740 with only 25 plates and in 1774 with 33 plates. The first 10 plates in the present set are 18th-century copies that we have not found recorded in the literature. They were apparently copied from the first (1740) edition, for plate VII includes l'Admiral's name as in that edition, removed before the second (1774) edition. Most plates show the species as egg, larva, pupa and adult, both male and female, placed on the plants they frequent in their natural habitat. Scientifically they were a great advance on all that went before, including the pioneering work of Maria Sibylla Merian. l'Admiral began studying butterflies at the age of 10.An unscrupulous dealer changed the plate number XXXIII to XXVIII to suggest a complete set of 32 rather than a set of 33 with one plate lacking. The margins have been trimmed close to the plate edge and the paper stock with the "I Villedary" countermark is slightly browned, but the plates are still in good condition.

        Description exacte de l'univers, ou l'ancienne geographie sacrée et profane. | Accuratissima orbis delineatio; sive geographia vetus, sacra et profana. | A full and exact description of the earth, or ancient geography, both sacred and profane. The Hague, Pieter de Hondt, 1740-1741. Folio (51 x 32.5 cm). Atlas with 63 engraved maps. It includes 6 maps, in 7 sheets, making up a large map of the Holy Land, Israel and Palestine, and a Peutinger map of the Roman roads in 4 sheets, with 2 segments each. Further with 3 title-pages, printed in red and black, in French, Latin and English, followed by Hornius's text in the said languages. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gold-tooled spine.

      - V.d. Krogt, Koeman’s Atlantes Neerlandici I, 621 & 631 (cf. 613); for the maps of the Holy Land: Laor 343-349. De Hondt edition of Hornius's historical atlas, incorporating the title-pages and text from the French, Latin and English editions and the full set of 63 maps from the English edition (rather than the 53 found in the other editions). The atlas consists of maps illustrating secular and religious history and one of the most notable inclusions is the seven-sheet map of the Holy Land, Israel and Palestine, which is a much enlarged edition of Adrichem's Situs terrae promissionis. It further includes maps of biblical history, Greek history, the Roman empire, Alexander the Great, Charles the Great and others.The present English edition isn't recorded by V.d. Krogt or found in WorldCat, and is likely an earlier issue (1740) of V.d Krogt's 613: A compleat body of ancient geography, both sacred and profane (1741).Some minor waterstains in the outer margins of the first 50 text leaves, stain in the first few leaves but with text still clear; the maps are in very good condition, one with a restored tear, a few occasional spots and sometimes minor wear along the extremities. Binding rubbed along the extremities, endpapers worn and the chemicals of the mottling damaged the sides of the binding, the tooling on the spine still clear.

        Theatrum Belli Serenissimæ Domus Austriacæ, contra Gallos, ... seu Tabula Geographica Cursus Rheni ... cum Regionibus cis Rhenanis, ... - Neuester Schauplaz des Krieges an dem Ober Rhein und in denen Niederlanden. Oder Lauff des Rheins ...Augsburg, Matthaeus Seutter, [ca. 1746]. Large engraved wall map (114 x 165 cm) printed on silk from 6 large copper plates (each plate measuring about 57 x 29 cm). With the Latin title in a large decorative cartouche above left and the German title in another below left. Further with a large decorated compass rose above right, two scales below the German title cartouche and scales of latitude and longitude in the border. Coloured by a contemporary hand.

      Seifert, Die Karte als Kunstwerk; Tooley, Dict. of Mapmakers, p. 471; IKAR (3 copies, all apparently on paper). A large theatre of war wall map of the Rhine valley, richly decorated, crisply printed on silk and beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand. It was produced during the War of the Spanish Succession (1740-1748). At a scale of about 1:405,000, the map covers the Rhine River from the Swiss-German border about 50 kilometres west of its source at Lake Constance (the Bodenzee) to its mouths at the North Sea in South Holland, and includes northwest Switzerland, midwest and southwest Germany, northeast France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the southern part of Netherlands, stopping just south of Amsterdam. It shows political boundaries, the fortifications of the cities, topographic features, woods and sand banks.It is tempting to think the map might have been coloured by Bartholomaeus Seuter (1678-1754), an Augsburg faience painter, silk dyer, engraver and supposedly also goldsmith, who worked out of his own house and may have been Matthaeus's cousin. It came from the Royal House of Wittelsbach. A splendid theatre of war wall map with decorative cartouches and compass rose, printed on silk and beautifully coloured. In fine condition, with the colouring fresh and bright.

        Carta Geografica della Florida Nell' America Settentrionale

      Venezia 1740 - Carta geografica tratta da "Atlante Novissimo" pubblicato da Giambattista Albrizzi, circa nel 1740. La mappa, basata su quella di De L'isle del 1718, si estende a Sud verso la Filadelfia e le Bahamas, e la costa del Golfo del Messico fino a Tampico. Si tratta dunque della stessa zona territoriale presentata nella mappa di Ortelius del 1584, ma i nomi di città, villaggi e fiumi sono stati aggiornati. Il grande e decorativo cartiglio presenta indigeni che puntano le frecce contro leoni addormentati, e sullo sfondo marino s'intravedono alcune navi. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Map taken from "Atlante Novissimo", published by Giambattista Albrizzi around 1740. Based on Delisle, the map covers the region from Filadelfia south to the Bahamas, and the coast of the Gulf of Mexico to Tampico. The map extends from the Rio Grande River to the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers and east to include the Chesapeake and Delaware Rivers, and south to Florida and the Bahamas. A superb, striking image, with rich details throughout and a striking cartouche showing and Indian Hunt in the New World. Excellent detail in Florida, the Gulf Coast and the Texas Coastline, as well as in the interior of Texas and the South. The two large Mohawk Villages, illustrated like European Cities, adds an unusual touch. S. Agostino is also shown as a large fortified town as is Charleston and Filadelphia. Many of the cartographic elements here are curiously antiquated having been updated by Delisle in his 1718 map - suggesting that Albrizzi must have either had an earlier variant of Delisle's map in hand when this map was composed or, more likely, chose to 'update' the Delisle map with other outdated sources. One such example is the curious half-moon shaped lake at the northern terminus of the Apalachicola River. This lake appeared in some early French maps but by 1740 had largely been abandoned as unlikely by most cartographers. This is also one of the last published maps to incorporate John Lederer's c. 1670 nomenclature in Carolina - including the 'Deserto Akenatzy,' the 'Pinnura cooperta d'acqua' and the 'Lago Grand' (a vestigial variant on the apocryphal 'Great Lake of the American Southeast'). The large pictorial title cartouche features natives aiming arrows at resting lions with elk in the background. Copperplate with fine later hand colour, in very good conditions. Dimensioni 450 350mm

Gilt-ruled old leather, rebacked (probably in the 19th century). 17cm. Bindings rather worn on all volumes. Vol. I lacks the backstrip; Vol. II has a backstrip which is detached along one side. Armorial bookplate in each volume. Contents generally sound with light to moderate browning, a touch of foxing, and some soil and other wear. We don't know whether Vol. III originally had a frontis. These volumes appear to be quite scarce, both in commerce and in institutional holdings. The title on each volume includes a list of some of the criminals whose details are given in that volume -- 24 are listed in Vol. I, 19 in Vol. II and 18 in Vol. II. According the Preface in the first volume, all of the criminals described in that volumes had been executed within "about a dozen years past." Among those included were Deval Abraham, a lottery ticket forger, Julian, a "Black-Boy" and an Incindiary, John Shepherd, a Foot-Pad, House-Breaker, and Prison-Breaker, Jonathan Wild, a Thief-taker, Jane Holmes, a Shop-lifter, Catherine Hayes, a bloody and inhuman Murderess [who was burned at the stake], Alice Green, a Cheat, a private Thief and Housebreaker, John Upton, a Pirate, and John Gow, a most notorious Pyrate and Murderer. Vols. I and II contain a Preface in two parts which celebrates the intricacies, wisdom and fairness of the British system of justice. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Description des festes données par la Ville de Paris, à l’occasion du Mariage de Madame Louise-Elisabeth de France, & de Dom. Philippe, Infant & Grand Amiral d’Espagne, le vingt-neuvième & trentième Aout mil sept cent trente-neuf.

      P.G. Le Mercier,, Paris, 1740 - In folio grande (62,3 x 46). Pp. (2)+22. Con 3 belle vignette incise n.t. e 13 grandi tavole f.t. incise su rame (8 a doppia pagina). Sono rilegate in fine due incisioni non pertinenti all’opera, di Blondel e di Bailleul, riguardanti scenografie per le feste parigine del 1739. Buon esemplare in affascinante legatura coeva tutta pelle marrone alle armi della Città di Parigi, piuttosto consumata, in particolare alle estremità e con cerniere restaurate. Una mancanza al dorso, recentemente restaurato, preservando quello originale. Sontuosa e celebre pubblicazione di grande formato, tra i migliori esempi del lusso tipografico francese del XVIII secolo, in un esemplare arricchito in fine da due incisioni supplementari che raffigurano la struttura per i fuochi artificiali al centro del Pont-Neuf (cfr. Catalogue of the entire and very choice collection of engravings, etchings, and mezzotints: the property of Mr. William Drugulin, nn. 4265-4266). Le grandiose tavole, incise da Blondel, mostrano gli stupefacenti apparati allestiti sulla Senna tra il Pont-Neuf e il Pont Royal (fra gli altri, dall’architetto italiano Giovanni Servandoni) per i festeggiamenti nuziali della figlia di Louis XV, Marie-Louise-Elisabeth, con Filippo di Borbone, figlio del re di Spagna (Parigi, 29-30 agosto 1739); entrambi gli sposi erano in età adolescenziale e il matrimonio costituiva un chiaro disegno delle alleanze strategiche tra i due Stati. One of the most famous French illustrated book on festivals and fireworks. It was printed for the wedding of King Louis XV in Paris. Our copy has two plates more at the end, not related to this edition but concerning the same event. A nice copy in full contemporary maroon morocco with the Arms of the town of Paris.

L'Académie royale des Sciences, fondée en 1666 par Colbert, décida la publication des mémoires données en son sein : la première publication parut en 1701 et la dernière en 1793, au moment de sa suppression sous la Terreur. L'ensemble forme 164 volumes. Ce volume manuscrit regroupe les tout premiers mémoires de l'Académie concernant la mécanique, la plupart composés par Varignon. Cette copie manuscrite est très vraisemblablement de la main d'un scientifique averti. D'une petite écriture nette et très lisible, elle contient quelques schémas dans le texte et surtout elle est accompagnée de 18 planches repliées dont deux seulement sont gravées, toutes les autres étant dessinées à la plume. Les figures reproduites montrent l'aisance et la connaissance du copieur. Les seuls renseignements connus concernant ce dernier sont ses initiales, C.Q.F.F.V. , données à la fin du volume. Cette copie forme un premier tome, mais il n'est pas sûr que l'entreprise ait été poursuivie. Détail des mémoires recopiés : 1668 : Comparaison des différentes forces de l'homme et des Machines. 1671 : De la résistance des Corps Solides. 1674 : Du mouvement des Corps et de sa Communication. 1674 : De la Communication Du Mouvement. 1675 : Du Choc Oblique. 1685 : Sur les Moïens d'arretter et de lâcher aisément les Cables sur lesquels on tire.

Plein veau fauve mouchetté, dos à nerfs richement orné, pièce de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge, roulette dorée sur les coupes. Reliure de l'époque en très bon état (une coiffe anciennement restaurée, un petit accroc à une autre, quelques coins émoussés. Publié pour la première fois en 1696, le dictionnaire de Bayle occupe une place de marque dans l'histoire de la pensée encyclopédique, appelé l'"Arsenal des Lumières". L'auteur l'avait conçu à l'origine comme une réplique aux erreurs du Grand dictionnaire historique de Moreri. Les articles biographiques, consacrés à de grandes figures de l'histoire du savoir et de l'humanité, sont, pour la grande majorité, formés de deux parties, la première proposant une biographie en tant que telle, suivie de remarques critiques et de réflexions diverses. Cete cinquième édition est d'un usage plus commune que les précédentes d'après Brunet, car les articles omis et les remarques critiques ont été replacés dans celle-ci dans leur ordre alphabétique. Brunet, I,712. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
