        Journey to The World Underground.

      London: T. Astley; Salisbury: Collins. 1742. First English Edition. 12mo. 324pp. Bound in recent full dark brown speckled calf with burgundy title labels and gilt decoration to spine and boards (Dragonfly binders label to rear pastedown). Handsome. Marbled endpapers. Lacking half title, ink splash to title page and small section of fore-edge otherwise internally clean; florid and rather elegant ownership to rear blank "John Brownjohn, The 26th of October, 1769". A clean, tidy copy. Very good indeed.A bizarre and important title detailing Niels Klim's journey into the underworld and his adventures therein, a satirical fantasy very much in the vein of Gulliver's Travels, albeit a trifle more gothic and lush...the picture of the Potuan denizen alone is worth the price of admission. It is notable from several points but is most widely considered to be one of the earliest science fiction novels, and likely the first to encompass the hollow earth concept as a trope. Hollow earth, lost races, picaresque adventures and a healthy dollop of complete early specualtive lunacy. Awesome.

Louis Bourguet was a student of Scheuchzer and Vallisnieri and - like his teachers - one of the first scientists to devote himself to the science of the study of fossils. He published three works on the subject. Born at Nantes in 1685 he was a professor of philosophy and mathematics at the University of Neuchatel and died there in 1742. The 60 plates show 440 fossil specimens. The work also includes a paleontological bibliography and a list of international locations where fossils have been found. Very Good.

        Opera omnia, tam antea sparsim edita.

      First edition Lausanne & Geneva: Marci-Michaelis Bousquet, 1742. An exceptionally fine and complete copy with both the portraits which often lack, from the collection of Robert Honeyman. "Bernoulli published only one book, Théorie de la manoeuvre des vaisseaux (1714) and apart from this, his dissertation De motu musculorum (1694) and one or two minor pieces, all his work was contributed to journals (189 papers are collected here) or were first published in these volumes, i.e. 59 of his lectures and the Hydraulica in volume IV [appearing here for the first time in print], which was written in competition with his son Daniel." (Roger Gaskell). ?Honeyman 293 (this copy, sold for $1,500 in 1978); Norman 217; Stanitz 55; Arnoud de Vitry 55. "The first volume is primarily devoted to problems in geometry and the early calculus, but also contains papers on muscular mechanics, the resistance of solids, and a geometrical demonstration of the motion of pendulums and projectiles in resisting and unresisting media. Volumes two and three are almost totally devoted to problems of mechanics, the first of these containing his theoretical essay on the maneuvering of vessels and related papers, as well as numerous contributions on the analysis of trajectories. His discourse on the laws governing the communication of movement opens volume three, which also contains his essay on celestial mechanics. The last volume contains contributions on the curvature of elastic plates, his mechanico-dynamical propositions, and problems in dynamics. Most important, its appearance in this volume represents the first printing of the Hydraulica, which was written in competition with his son, Daniel. "Johann Bernoulli 'proposed the problem of the brachystochrone (the Bernoullis' term - the curve of quickest descent joining two points), to which Galileo had given an incorrect solution: he solved it himself (the answer is the cycloid) in 1697. It is due to his work on this problem and that of finding the curve of given perimeter which will enclose the greatest area that he is considered one of the founders of the calculus of variations. He is also remembered for his work on the exponential calculus; on geodesics; on complex numbers; and his treatment of trigonometry as a branch of the calculus.' (DSB). He also first enunciated the principle of virtual work and was the first to denote the accelerating effect of gravity by the sign g, thus arriving at the formula v square equals 2gh. Todhunter and Pearson note Bernoulli's treatment of the cause of elasticity in his Discours sur les loix de la communication du movement (1727) and his theory of 'captive aether.' Timoshenko remarks on his formulation of the principle of virtual displacements in a letter to Varignon." (Bibliotheca Mechanica). 4 volumes 4to (247 x 196 mm) . Fully complete: vol. I: pp. [4] [i] ii-xxiv, [1-2] 3-563 [1:blank], title in red and black, 25 engraved plates, including a portrait of Frederick III of Prussia engraved by G.F. Schmidt, a portrait of Bernoulli by Schmidt after J. Ruber, and 23 folding engraved plates numbered i-xxiii; vol. II: pp. [2], [1-3] 4-620, 17 folding engraved plates numbered xxiv-xl; vol. III: pp. [2], [1-3] 4-563 [1:blank], 36 folding engraved plates numbered xli-lxxvi; vol. IV: [1-5] 6-588, 15 folding engraved plates numbered lxxvii-xci. Provenance: with gilt red morocco ex-libris of Robert Honeyman to front paste down of each volume. A very fine and completley unrestored set, housed in four fine custom half red morocco cases.

Handsomely rebound to style in full mottled calf, boards framed in blind with rolled vine border, spines in six compartments tooled in blind with center medallion between raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco labels lettered and numbered in gilt, date of publication stamped in gilt.

Provence: Ownership signatures of H. Pemberton, 1757, to verso of each title-page (perhaps Henry Pemberton (1694&1771), editor of the third edition of Isaac Newton's Principia and author of A View of Sir I. Newton's Philosophy) and beneath it that of William Rooth. Lowndes 401. Ashbee 410. Gibson's Library, p. 91. Fine Jervas (a printer's error resulted in "Jarvis") was an artist and art collector, but he also had literary ambitions, and with Alexander Pope (whose painting instructor he had been for some six months in 1713) he edited a version of Charles-Alphonse Du Fresnoy's De arte grafica. But his major literary undertaking was this English translation of Don Quixote to which also provided the first introduction and a critical analysis of previous translations. Published posthumously in 1742 and frequently reprinted, "it is generally acknowledged as being close in spirit to the original."

        A Treatise of Fluxions.

      Edinburgh: T.W. and T. Ruddimans, 1742. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (222x172 mm). Vol. I: [6], vi, 1-412 pp., including half-title and 25 folding engraved plates. Vol. II: [2], 413-763 [1] pp. and 16 folding engraved plates. Contemporary calf, red morocco labels to spines (binding a little rubbed and bumped, vol. 1 foot of spine damaged, hinges cracked but firm). Internally only very little browned, text of vol. II with faint dampstaining, contemporary ink inscription to vol. I title and p.50, library and withdrawal stamps "Bibliotheca Coll. Nov. Edinensis" to foot of titles. Provenance: John Sprat Rainier (1777-1822), Rear Admiral of the Royal Navy. ----Norman 1408; DSB VIII, p.610; Honeyman 2084. - FIRST EDITION. Written as a staunch defence of Newton, and described as "the earliest logical and systematic publication of the Newtonian methods", this work was written in reply to Bishop George Berkeley's The Analyst. A letter addressed to an infidel mathematician of 1734. This latter work, which derided Newton's conception of "prime and ultimate ratios", was addressed to Halley who had steered the first edition of the Principia through the press. In his preface to the Treatise, MacLaurin lays out his reasons for defending Newton and his methods. This work is otherwise noteworthy for the solution of a great number of problems in geometry, statics and the theory of attractions, and elaborations of many of the principles described by Newton in the Principia. It stood as a model of rigor until the appearance of Cauchy's Cours d'Analyse in 1821 (DSB). Very Good.

        The Microscope Made Easy

      [2]-XVI-311-16 pages, 15 London, printed for R. Dodsley, 1742, in-8, [2]-XVI-311-16 pages, 15 planches gravées sur cuivre, veau brun, dos à nerfs, pièce de titre rouge, filets d'encadrement sur les plats, Édition originale de cet ouvrage important de Henry Baker (1698-1774), qui contribua à populariser l'usage du microscope et qui connut de nombreuses réimpressions. Il se divise en deux parties : la première, "The nature, uses, and magnifying powers of the belt kinds of microscopes...", décrivant les nombreuses sortes de microscopes et la manière de les utiliser (Wilson, Cuff, Culpeper...) ; la seconde, "An account of what surprizing discoveries have been already made by the miscroscope...", dédiée à l'observation d'espèces diverses. Ami de Cuff, Baker était le type même du "polymathe" du XVIIIe siècle ; il trouva, par l'étude de la nature au travers du microscope un "nouveau sens de l'homme". (Harald Moe, Story of the Microscope, p. 92). Exemplaire enrichi de la planche n° 5, représentant le microscope solaire, qui sera ajoutée à l'édition de 1744, ici complétée par un croquis au crayon. Également rajouté : un feuillet manuscrit de l'époque, dépliant, comprenant la copie d'une note figurant dans la seconde édition, à la page 98, relative au polype, et la transcription des observations de Martin Folkes sur le polype, présentées à la Royal Society ; ces observations feront l'objet d'une publication de Baker en 1743, An attempt towards a natural history of the polype. L'auteur de ce feuillet y a soigneusement dessiné à la plume 5 figures. Dos habilement refait. Réparation en marge d'une planche. DSB I, pp. 410-412. Wellcome II p. 88 (pour la seconde édition).

        L'Histoire Naturelle éclaircie dans deux de ses parties principales, la lithologie et la conchyliologie, dont l'une traite des pierres et l'autre des coquillages

      [8]-230 pp. ; [1] ff. chiffré A Paris, chez De Bure, 1742, in-4, [8]-230 pp. ; [1] ff. chiffré *230 à la suite de 230 ; [1] ff. et reprise de la pagination de 231 à 491-[1] ; 33 pl. en taille-douce, front. compris, maroquin grenat de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs et fleuronné, triple filet d'encadrement doré sur les plats et double filet sur les coupes, tranches dorées, roulette intérieure, [Signatures :a4, A-Z4, Aa-Zz4, Aaa-Qqq4]. Bien complet du feuillet chiffré *230, compris dans les signatures, qui s'ajoute à la description "des plus fameux cabinets de l'Europe touchant l'histoire naturelle". Rare édition originale, parue anonymement, du premier ouvrage d'histoire naturelle rédigé par Dezallier d'Argenville (1680-1765), dédié à la Société des Sciences de Montpellier qui l'avait accueilli parmi ses membres ; sans doute l'ouvrage de conchyliologie pré-linnéen le plus célèbre du siècle des Lumières. Il ouvre sur un beau frontispice gravé par Chedel d'après François Boucher, figurant un charmant couple de créatures anthropo-zoomorphiques marines, dans une composition rocaille typique du peintre de cours de Louis XV. L'ouvrage est en deux parties : la lithologie, ornée de 4 planches "remplies de morceaux extrêmement rares... Ce sont des pétrifications, des congellations, des cristallisations, & quelques plantes pierreuses" (p. 232) ; et la conchyliologie, comprenant une "Nouvelle méthode de distribuer les coquillages de mer" ornée 27 planches. Les gravures, attribuées à Chedel, indiquent en légende le nom des "personnes de distinction" qui ont contribué à leur exécution grâce "leur secours généreux" ; le Duc de Sully, l'abbé Arnaud de Pomponne, l'abbé Jolly, le comte d'Egmont, l'auteur lui-même, etc... L'artiste qui est à l'origine des dessins semble avoir tenu à conserver l'anonymat, si l'on en croit Dezallier qui, après avoir loué son habileté, regrette "que sa modestie ne permette pas que son nom achève cet éloge" (p. 233). Il pourrait s'agir, selon Madeleine Pinault-Sørensen, de Jean de Jullienne. Dezallier d'Argenville étudia la gravure auprès de Jean Corneille et de Bernard Picart, et le dessin auprès de l'architecte Jean-Baptiste Alexandre Le Blond. Il fréquenta les salons élégants et érudits parisiens et fut membre de plusieurs sociétés savantes en France et en Europe. Il possédait un cabinet fameux dans lequel il rangeait, outre sa collection de peintures, dessins et gravures, "les objets de l'art et ceux de la nature" qu'il glanait à l'occasion de ses nombreux voyages en Europe ; ce cabinet fut décrit par Pierre Rémy dans le Catalogue raisonné (Paris, Didot) dressé, en vue de sa vente, après la mort de son propriétaire. Sa Conchyliologie servit de référence à Jaucourt, auteur de la plus grande partie des articles liés à ce sujet dans l'Encyclopédie, tandis que Dezallier lui-même participait à l'aventure en se chargeant de l'hydraulique. Élégant exemplaire en maroquin d'époque. Charnières légèrement frottées, infimes éraflures, légère auréole sur le plat supérieur. Rousseurs éparses. Cole I, n° 1462. Nissen ZBI, n° 144.

This biography follows Maria Perpetua da Luz, a Carmelite nun of Beja renowned for her piety, through the trials and tribulations of her severe illnesses, the numerous "horrendas figuras, com que o demonio inutilmente procurou inquietala, e pervertela dos seus santos exercicios," and her visions and other blessings (from God, the Virgin, and no less than 15 saints). Her writings on prayer, divine vs. profane love and ecclesiastical reform are summarized. The final chapter describes the "grandes prodigios" she performed before her death and after it, by her relics.The author was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1696 and entered the Carmelite Order there in 1716. After studying theology at Coimbra, where he earned a doctorate in theology in 1725, he returned to Brazil to teach. Later he became a professor at Coimbra, Provincial of his Order, and confessor to the future D. Maria I and her sisters. He died at Salvaterra de Magos in 1759. Pereira de Santa Anna was the brother of Simão Pereira de Sá and was active in the Academia dos Selectos of Rio de Janeiro; some of his poetry was published in the anthology Jubilos da America, Lisbon 1754.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 772; Período colonial pp. 327-8.

This work was written for the collector in order to facilitate the identification of shells for the cabinet. It "was very popular with collectors and even Linnaeus utilized it to arrange his shells."-Dance, Shell Collecting. An Illustrated History, pp. 58-59. There is an extensive list of shells, with remarks on rarity and desirability, followed by a discussion of private natural history collections in Paris and Holland, with remarks on the outstanding features of each collections.

        Area P.P. Societatis Jesu cum corum Templo

      Venetiis: Apud Joannem Baptistam Pasquali 1742 - Incisione all'acquaforte di mm 421 x 251 (alla battuta). Vergatina veneziana settecentesca. Pieni margini. Filigrana assente. Primo stato su tre (I/III). In basso al centro "Area P.P. Societatis Jesu cum corum Templos" e sulla destra "IX" in numero romano. Lieve abrasiore rilevabile solo dal retro del foglio. Incisione tratta dal più che celebre album inciso da Antonio Visentini dai disegni di Canaletto "Urbis Venetiarum Prospectus Celebriores, ex Antonii Canal Tabulis XXXVIII. Aere expressi ab Antonio Visentini. In partes tres distributi". Questa edizione è la prima di 38 vedute, e completa la precedente stampata nel 1735 di soli 16 fogli. Succi "Le Prospettive di Venezia dipinte da Canaletto e incise da Antonio Visentini": "L'acquaforte è interessante perché non raffigura la balaustra e la statua di S. Giovanni Nepomuceno che furono collocate all'angolo con Cannaregio nel 1742. Poiché quelle modifiche al panorama del Canal Grande furono inserite nel corso della rielaborazione della tavola X della "Pars Prima" ne consegue induttivamente che i lavori di miglioramento sulle lastre dell'edizione del 1735 furono eseguiti quasi certamente tra il 1741 e il 1742, dopo l'esecuzione delle ventiquattro ulteriori vedute. Il dipinto, già appartenente al gruppo Harvey fa parte della collezione Wrightsman, Florida. Manca lo schizzo corrispondente nella serie al Museo Correr. Links prospettava l'ipotesi che tale mancanza fosse dovuta al fatto che Visentini avesse ritirrato il disegno per inserirvi la modifica". Antonio Visentini (Venezia 1688-1782) fu pittore, incisore e architetto. Il suo nome si lega strettamente a quello di Canaletto, con il quale collaborò, nella produzione della sua opera più famosa, appunto le 38 vedute in prospettiva. Come Canaletto lavorò quasi sempre sotto il patrocinio di Joseph Smith e della casa editrice di Giambattista Pasquali. 18mo secolo

        Anfangsgründe der Wundarzneykunst. (7 Bde., compl.).

      8, ca. 3000 S., 40 von 44 meist gefalzten Kupferstichen, HLdr. der Zeit mit Goldprägung, Im Bd. 2 (von den Kopfwunden) fehlen die vier Kupfertafeln Bd. 5. Wurmgänge über 25 Bl. (minimaler Buchstabenverlust), einge Seiten mit leichten Bleistiftanstreichungen, einige Seiten wasserrändig, wenig stockfleckig, insgesamt gutes Exemplar. August Gottlieb Richter (1742 - 1812), einer wichtigsten deutschen Chirurgen. Richter begann 1760 in Göttingen ein Medizinstudium. Akademischer Lehrer war sein Onkel Georg Gottlob Richter, der dort seinerzeit den Lehrstuhl für Medizin innehatte. Nach seiner Promotion 1764 begab er sich auf eine zweijährige Studienreise, die ihn an wichtige Studienorte der Medizin wie Paris, London, Oxford, Leiden, Amsterdam und Groningen führte. Dort machte er Bekanntschaft mit berühmten Ärzten wie Jean Louis Petit (1674?-1750) und Percivall Pott. Nach Rückkehr wurde Richter in Göttingen eine außerordentliche Professur angetragen, 1771 erhielt er eine ordentliche Professur. Seine Arbeitsgebiete waren medizinische und operative Chirurgie, sowie Augenheilkunde. Richter verlieh der damals eher handwerklich orientierten Ausbildung der Wundärzte, eine wissenschaftliche Grundlage. Ein wichtiger Beitrag hierzu waren seine zahlreichen Veröffentlichungen, unter denen die siebenbändige Anfangsgründe der Wundarzneykunst, (1782 - 1804), die zweibändige Abhandlung von den Brüchen (1777 - 1779) und die Abhandlung von der Ausziehung des grauen Stars (1773) herausragende Bedeutung besitzen. Richter gab auch eines der frühesten Referateblätter, eine Zeitschrift für ein medizinisches Spezialgebiet, heraus. Die von 1771 bis 1797 in Göttingen und Gotha erschienene "Chirurgische Bibliothek" gab vor allem deutschen Chirurgen einen Überblick über die während eines Jahres erschienene, auch ausländische, Fachliteratur ihres Faches. Als Empiriker und Mann der Praxis reduzierte der das reichhaltige Instrumentarium der Chirurgen auf wesentliche Instrumente, denen er mit der knieförmig gebogenen Schere aber auch ein weiteres hinzufügte.1780 eröffnete er in Göttingen eine chirurgische Klinik mit 15 Betten und wurde im gleichen Jahr Leibarzt des hannoverschen Königs. Richter war neben dem Würzburger Professor Carl Caspar von Siebold der führende Chirurg seiner Zeit.

        Notes manuscrites rédigées par des informateurs au service de la police, 27 juillet 1742 au 5 novembre 1743.

      [1742 - 43] 193 feuillets in folio manuscrits recto-verso. Reliure du XIXème siècle en demi-maroquin rouge à coins, dos à nerfs frappé au centre des caissons du chiffre de Feuillet de Conches. Reliure frottée, dos noirci et mors supérieur restauré. Recueil manuscrit du 27 juillet 1742 au 5 novembre 1743. Selon la Revue Rétrospective (Tome IV, 1834) dans laquelle il fut partiellement publié, ce manuscrit aurait été rédigé par des "mouchards" employés par la police à recueillir les bruits circulant aussi bien dans les lieux publics que dans les salons particuliers. Toujours selon la même revue, ce recueil, qui pourrait provenir de la dispersion des archives de la Bastille, entra ensuite en possession de Victor Schoelcher (1804-1893) -homme politique connu pour son engagement pour l'abolition de l'esclavage- avant de rejoindre la bibliothèque du célèbre bibliophile Félix Feuillet de Conches. Manuscrit passionnant, comprenant de nombreuses ratures. On y trouve des passages concernant les personnalités en vue, aussi bien civiles que du gouvernement, plusieurs passages concernant Voltaire, les réactions au projet de taxe sur les domestiques, la concurrence des prétendants à l'Académie Française, les bruits concernant la santé de tel ou tel personnage. Des marques au crayon reflètent les instructions d'édition pour la Revue Rétrospective.
