(Germantown, Pennsylvania: Christopher Saur, 1743)Of the presses established by the German population in Pennsylvania, by far the two most important ones were Peter Miller's at Ephrata and the Germantown press founded by Christopher Sower (sometimes Saur or Sauer, 1693-1758). Sower came to America in 1724, learned the printing trade at Ephrata, and set up his own press in Germantown in 1738 (he later built a paper mill and a book bindery). He issued a good deal of ephemeral and some scriptural material, most important of which was a quarto Bible in 1743, the first Bible in the colonies after the Eliot Indian translation of 1663 and the first Bible printed in America in a European language. store front - cabinet with 3 doors.

Its statement that, the internal forces of inertia must be equal and opposite to the forces that produce the acceleration, is still known as d'Alembert's principle. This principle is applied to many phenomena and, in particular, to the theory of the motion of fluids." [PMM]. In this work, D'Alembert discusses his three laws of motion: inertia, the parallelogram of motion, and equilibrium. The Traite reduced the laws of the motion of bodies to a law of equilibrium.

Jane Squire
London: Jane Squire. Printed in 1743, this rare and unusual self-published work is by one of the first English women to be actively involved in the pursuit of science. The book was published in response to the 1714 Longitude Act under which the British government offered a reward of £20,000 to anyone who could solve the problem of accurately measuring longitude at sea. The author is notable as being the only woman to openly submit a proposal. Her complicated and impractical solution was based around the division of the sky into over a million segments, each of which would be identified by a unique combination of symbols. This work, bound at Squire's own expense was distributed to interested parties and this copy bears the handwritten inscription "From the hand of the author" in Latin.

Squire, Jane
S.Cope, London, 1743. London, printed for the author and sold by S.Cope and by the Booksellers of London and Westminster, 1743. The second edition "in English only". 12mo. [2], 152pp, [5], pp154-160. With a large folding engraved chart of symbols and their explanations. Half-title present. The postscript is bound after the contents, hence the break in pagination towards the end of the text. This unusual work, self-published by the scientific writer Jane Squire contained a complicated and ultimately impractical solution to the problem of calculating longitude. The book was published, as were a number of other solutions, in response to the 1714 Longitude Act under which the British government offered a reward of £20,000 to anyone who could solve the problem of accurately measuring longitude at sea. Scrutiny of proposals made in pursuit of the prize was overseen by the Board of Longitude. Squire is notable as being the only woman to openly submit a proposal, the only other being Elizabeth Johnson who did so anonymously in order to deflect criticism emanating from gender bias. Squire’s complicated and religiously motivated solution was based around the division of the sky into over a million segments, each of which would be identified by a unique combination of symbols. Her solution also required the placing of buoys shaped like sea creatures around the oceans of the world in order to aid the alignment of the symbols and sky segments. In retrospect, it appears totally impractical and out of touch with reality, but apparently, many of the schemes submitted to the Board of Longit … [Click Below for Full Description]

A student of anatomist Bernhard Siegfried Albinus (1697-1770), renowned for his impressive preparations, Wilhelmus Noortwyk (ca. 1713-1777) graduated M.D. at Leiden University in 1735. In the present work Noortwyk presents "his investigations on the corpse of a young woman who died at 6 months gestation. Noortwyk obtained permission of the husband to excise the pregnant uterus from the corpse, and took it home for dissection. [...] In this description, Noortwyk asserted correctly that the maternal and fetal circulations were separate. [...] [Noortwyk] apparently was the first to inject the uterine vessels of a young woman who had died near term" (Longo & Reynolds). Blake, p. 326; STCN (6 copies); cf. Lindeboom, Dutch Medical Biography, cc. 1437-1438; Longo & Reynolds, Wombs with a View, p. 124.

Die 112 SS. im Anhang enthalten die "Depositio cornuti typographici" (in Versen von Johann Rist und einer Prosafassung), "Erneuerte Ehren-Gedichte auf die Edle freye Kunst der Buchdruckerei" und "Der hochlöblichen Schreibe-Kunst Christliches Ehren-Lob". Das Werk wird meist unter dem Namen von Gessner geführt, es dürfte aber wohl von Johann Georg Hager aus Oberkotzau verfaßt worden sein (siehe die Ausführungen Bogharts zu seiner Nr. 16).

(1f.blanc) + 10 planches gravées dépliantes. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque, épidermures sur les plats). Edition Originale du premier ouvrage de l'auteur qui l'écrivit à l'âge de 17 ans. L'astronome suisse Jean Philippe Loys de Chéseaux (1718-1751) fut une figure intéressante de la recherche scientifique de son époque, malgré sa disparition prématurée à l'âge de 33 ans. Fils d'une famille fortunée de Lausanne (il était petit-fils du philosophe et mathématicien Crousaz), Chéseaux s'était fait construire un observatoire particulier d'astronomie et on lui doit notamment l'une des premières formulations modernes du paradoxe de Chéseaux-Olbers, qui constitue l'un des raisonnements fondamentaux sur lesquels fut édifiée au 20e siècle la théorie de l'expansion de l'Univers.Le présent ouvrage, dont le privilège révèle qu'il s'intitulait à l'origine "Essai de Dynamique", contient trois traités consacrés à la dynamique, à la force produite par la poudre, et à l'acoustique. On y trouve de nombreuses références à Newton et il est illustré de 10 planches dépliantes hors-texte gravées sur cuivre.Cassure du papier au niveau de quelques caractères de la page de titre, sans manque. Bon exemplaire. Poggendorf, I, 1505-06.

ROSINUS, Johannes.
Amsterdam: Salomon Schouten, 1743. Quarto (244 x 196 mm). Contemporary vellum, vellum spine missing revealing under structure, covers ornately panelled in gilt with gilt floral cornerpieces and angel centrepiece, slits for original ties (the ties now lost). Light soiling to vellum, some browning and foxing to contents. A very good, firm copy. Engraved title page, and 8 other plates, 3 of which are folding, including a fine map of Rome under Septimius Severus. Letterpress title printed in red and black. The final edition of the Antiquitatum Romanarum of Johannes Rosinus, a compendium of Classical Rome and Roman antiquities, detailing the topography of Rome and the division of the population, its sacred and private remains, its legal system, and its warfare. First published in 1583, the book proved very popular, with various editions under different editors until this edition of 1743, never since republished. The binding here is of particular note, the loss of the spine backing revealing the use of earlier rubricated vellum manuscript strips as binding supports. Such a complete view of the under structure of a book's spine is usually only the case where the volume in question is dilapidated beyond use, but not so here, with the cords strong and thus the covers still firm and functional. Provenance: the Dutch lawyer, politician and antiquary Charles Clément Roemers 1748-1838, with his booklabel to the front pastedown. A lawyer by training, Roemers served as Alderman in Maastricht in the 1770s and 1780s. A beneficiary of the French Revolution, he acted as Agent National for Maa … [Click Below for Full Description]

LIBERTY AND GOVERNMENT].
London, R. Willock, 1743. 8vo, pp. [4], ix, [15], 363, [1]; woodcut device to title page and tailpiece at end; occasional light foxing, half title partly detached, but internally in very good condition; in contemporary calf; front cover cracked and held by threads, corners worn, abrasions to the sides.Uncommon: the first and only edition of an anonymously published essay on liberty and the role of government, the title and content of which point to the political philosophy of John Locke. Concerned primarily with the role of the state as a protector of property and therefore defender of liberty, the author also addresses issues concerning the East India Company, the South Sea Company, the value of money, and interest. 'The Essay argued that the end of civil government was the protection of property, and took a whiggish turn in allying property with liberty. More novel, but characteristic of the period, was the expansive conception of property, both national and personal, that the author expounded' (D. Armitage, The Ideological Origins of the British Empire, pp. 187–8). A previous owner inscribed 'John Locke' in pencil on the title-page of this copy: which inscription was erased at a later stage.ESTC T55970.

The enormous library of 50,000 printed books, and some 7639 manuscripts formed by Robert Harley (1661-1724), 1st Earl of Oxford, Edward Harley (1689-1741), second Earl of Oxford, and their librarian Humfrey Wanley (1672-1726). The first Earl of Oxford "was one of the first collectors who systematically acquired early printed books; his son Edward... continued the library. After the latter's death in 1741, his widow sold the library for 13,000 pounds to the London bookseller Thomas Osborne (d. 1767), who employed Dr. Johnson and William Oldys, antiquary and later Norroy King-of-Arms, to catalogue it." (Breslauer & Folter). The catalogue was planned by Michael Maittaire who also wrote the Latin dedication to Lord Carteret. Dr. Johnson shared the cataloguing of the collection with Oldys, as well as adding the prefatory eight-page 'An Account of the Harleian Library' to volume one. Although this was a bookseller's catalogue, the prices were not published, but Osborne marked a minimum price it each, which were then sold to the highest bidder. The bulk of the manuscripts were sold to the nation for £10,000. Provenance: Bookpla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bickham, George
Printed for and sold by H. Overton, London, 1743. Folio, ff. 212 + engraved frontispiece. Modern quarter calf, black morocco label, marbled boards. One plate used for pen trials and consequently creased, stained, and torn at edges though now cut down and repaired, small reinforcement to fore-edge of first few leaves and edges of frontispiece, otherwise just a little minor staining in places. The 'writing-book to end all writing-books' (Muir), featuring contributions from over two dozen of the period's most important writing-masters, carefully engraved by George and John Bickham. The plates include sample sentences and forms for a variety of uses, in a large number of different alphabets and scripts, all highly decorated (and several cleverly trompe l'oeil). George Bickham (1683-1758) was skilled and ambitious but not an organisational genius; the book was intended to come out in 52 weekly parts across a single year, but in the end it took eight years before the plates were finally all complete, with the result being beautifully engraved but hopelessly disorganised and misnumbered. After attempts to regularise the foliation and produce a book-form edition, Bickham sold the rights to Henry Overton, a more experienced publisher, who took control and produced this edition, the fourth overall but the second in book form and the first to be continuously foliated throughout. The order established here remained the standard version of the book through further reprintings and sales of the rights to other publishers in ensuing decades (see Muir in The Library, Dec … [Click Below for Full Description]
