        Signed autograph letter, four pages in French, to Jean-Jacques d'Ortous de Mairan, secretary of the Académie des Sciences in Paris, discussing Maclaurin's Treatise of Fluxions, and also the Académie's geodetic mission to Peru.

      Edinburgh: 5 February. 1743. Important autograph letter from the great Scottish mathematician Colin Maclaurin (1698-1746) discussing his most important work, Treatise of Fluxions (1742), "the earliest logical and systematic publication of the Newtonian methods. It stood as a model of rigor until the appearance of Cauchy's Cours d'analyse in 1821" (DSB). Autograph material by Maclaurin is of great rarity on the market - this is the only example we have traced at auction in the last 40 years. The letter reads in full, in English translation: I was honoured to receive your letter dated on the first day of the year, and it has been a long time since I received the copies of the Eloge of Cardinal of Polignac, which you so kindly sent to me. At that time, I was in the countryside, working on an addendum to my book [i.e. Treatise of Fluxions]. Then I had to take some brief journeys, which prevented me from thanking you as soon as I would have liked. Dr Martin, to whom you addressed one of your pieces, died during the Cartagena expedition. It seems to me that you have many reasons to be satisfied with the success of the Praise, even if it may be difficult to succeed in that kind of work. As regards my book, I am expecting different feelings about it, especially from foreigners who may not know all the reasons why I had to write about the components of the method in such a detailed manner. I hope that the second volume of the book will better satisfy their expectations, as I discuss the various useful and interesting issues. It would delight me if you found any of it to your taste. I began writing to resolve the objections from subtle metaphysicians, but I wanted a treaty of such a scope that it would also meet the interests of the mathematicians, by addressing previously known issues or by discussing other lesser-known ones. I tried by all means to mention the other authors interested in this subject as is appropriate for persons with the same purpose, even by improving gradually so pleasant and valuable sciences. I hope you will let me know when your academicians will return from Peru. The members of our society [i.e. the Royal Society] are so very grateful for your honesty and express their high esteem for you. We are attempting to rectify the geography of the north of the island and we are actually going to engrave a map of the northern side of Great Britain with the harbours, which is much more accurate than the one we had, and I will send a copy of it to you by a rider coming to France in few weeks' time. Do forgive me for the stylistic errors, and if you wish to address some new comments to me, I would be pleased if you would send them. If you would be so kind, if it is a large parcel, you need only to send it by the coach of Boulogne addressed to Mr Charles Smith, Merchant at Boulogne-Sur-Mer, and with my address on the inside. Or if you have the opportunity to send it to London, you may address the parcel to Mr Mitchell, Under-Secretary of State, Cockpit, Whitehall, London. Mr Mitchell is a close friend of mine and he will take care of it. He is kind and will be happy to help in a situation like this. I take this liberty because the people of the postal service requested 45 Shillings Sterling for carrying the Praises, but after some difficulty I was able to obtain them without charge. I have the honour of being, with the highest esteem and respect, Sir, Your most humble and very obedient servant C. Mac Laurin The letter begins with the usual pleasantries, Maclaurin thanking Mairan for sending him copies of his Eloge de M. Le Cardinal de Polignac, which Mairan had delivered to the Académie the preceding year. Polignac (1661-1742) was one of the most illustrious scholars and courtiers of France in the latter years of Louis XIV, and in the early reign of Louis XV. Maclaurin turns to a discussion of two-volume Treatise of Fluxions in the third paragraph. "I began writing to resolve the objections from subtle metaphysicians, but I wanted a treatise of such a scope that it would also meet the interests of the mathematicians, by addressing previously known issues or by discussing other lesser-known ones." One of Newton's most ardent disciples, Maclaurin was led to write the Treatise as a response to criticisms of Newton's fluxions made by Bishop Berkeley. "Despite the great progress of analysis during the 18th century, foundational questions remained largely unsolved. ... The most influential criticism of the new analysis was put forward by the famous English philosopher George Berkeley [in his pamphlet The Analyst, 1734]. ... Berkeley's criticism was well informed and efficient. Rooted in the tradition of English sensualism, he showed that many definitions in the infinitesimal calculus are paradoxical and cannot be justified by intuition. He explained the success of the new calculus by a repeated neglect of infinitely small quantities leading through a compensation of errors to a correct answer." (Jahnke: A History of Analysis, 127). "The most authoritative answer to Berkeley came from Maclaurin, one of the most talented of Newton's disciples. In his Treatise of Fluxions (1742), he tried to show that infinitesimals were used by Newton only to abbreviate proofs; these proofs could be re-expanded, following the style of the De Quadratura (1704), in terms of limits. Furthermore, Maclaurin elaborated the idea that Newtonian proofs in terms of limits were equivalent to the venerated method of exhaustion of the ancient Greek mathematicians. Newton's 'method of prime and ultimate ratios' was just the direct version of the indirect (ad absurdum) method of Archimedes. " (Grattan-Guinness: Companion Encyclopedia, 314). The letter seems to indicate that the two volumes of the Treatise were not published at the same time, "I hope that the second volume of the book will better satisfy their expectations, as I discuss the various useful and interesting issues." Both volumes have title pages dated 1742 but Maclaurin writes as if the second volume is not yet available at the time of writing (February 1743). Maclaurin then turns to geodetic matters. "I hope you will let me know when your academicians will return from Peru. The members of our society [i.e. the Royal Society] are so very grateful for your honesty and express their high esteem for you." In the 18th century, a debate raged in the scientific community, especially in the Académie des sciences, as to whether the circumference of the Earth was greater around the equator, as Newton's theories predicted, or around the poles as held by the Cartesians, who were by far the majority in the Académie. To decide the matter the Académie sent two expeditions, one to Lapland led by Celsius and Maupertuis, the other to what is now Ecuador (then Peru), led by Bouguer and La Condamine. The Lapland expedition reported in 1738 in favour of the Newtonians, a result which did not please the Cartesians of the Académie, which included Mairan himself, something to which Maclaurin perhaps refers, "The members of our society are so very grateful for your honesty and express their high esteem for you." The Peru expedition left France in 1735 but encountered many difficulties, and Bouguer and La Condamine did not return until 1745; their results confirmed those of the Lapland expedition. Mairan (1678-1771) was concerned with a wide variety of subjects, including heat, light, sound, motion, the shape of the earth, and the aurora. Although fundamentally a Cartesian, he tried to incorporate some of Newton's ideas in his work. He became a member of the Academy of Sciences in 1718, serving as secretary from 1741 to 1743, succeeding Fontenelle. He also belonged to the Royal Societies of London, Edinburgh, and Uppsala, the Petersburg Academy, and the Institute of Bologna. DSB VIII: 609-612 (Maclaurin); DSB IX: 33-34 (Mairan). Norman 1408, Honeyman 2084 (Treatise of Fluxions). Four pages on a single sheet (375 x 227 mm) folded once vertically (thin paper strip mounted, proably from having been bound), remains of red wax seal on address page, small tears from opening the seal. Edinburgh: 5 February, 1743 (received 16 February).

        Dei difetti della giurisprudenza trattato

      nella Stamperia Muziana, 1743. Cm. 22,5, pp. (8) 207 (3). Graziosa legatura coeva in piena perg. rigida, dorso a 5 nervi con titoli e fregi impressi a secco agli scomparti; tagli spruzzati. Antica firma di possesso al frontespizio. Sottile fenditura ad una cerniera, fioriture/bruniture tipiche della carta napoletana del tempo e qualche piccolo alone marginale. Esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Capolavoro di Ludovico Antonio Muratori (1672-1750) che influenzò in modo determinante la dottrina giuridica italiana del Settecento e soprattutto i nascenti processi di codificazione (es. estense e toscano). L'intento dell'Autore consiste nel cercare di rendere evidente l'esigenza di reductio ad unum, quindi di codici che ponessero un ordine sistematico alle numerose fonti di diritto vigenti. Il trattato spazia dall'indagine sopra i concetti di giustizia, legge, giurisprudenza e legislazione, a temi strettamente tecnici come prescrizione, usucapione, fideicommissi e sostituzioni. Rara edizione napoletana, di formato maggiore rispetto alle altre edizioni uscite un anno dopo l'originale. Cfr. Iccu; Edizioni giuridiche antiche in lingua italiana, II,1, p. 365..

        Numismata imperatorum romanarum praestantiora a Julio Cesare ad postumum usque. Editio prima romana plurimis rarissimis nummis aucta.

      Jo. Bapt. Bernabò et J. Lazzarini,, Romae, 1743 - Tre volumi di cm. 27,5, pp. xl, 347; vii, 452; viii, 372. Frontespizi in rosso e nero con una diversa vignetta incisa a ciascuno di essi, molte testate, finalini e capolettera finemente incisi e decine di medaglie intagliate in rame nel testo. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli in oro su tasselli ai dorsi. Qualche lieve fioritura, ma esemplare complessivamente assai genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. J. Vaillant (1632-1706) intraprese la carriera di medico, ma ben presto i suoi interessi numismatici gli faranno abbandonare la professione per le vantaggiose proposte che il ministro Colbert gli fa di viaggiare per arricchire di monete il Re Sole. Da questa esperienza nasce la presente opera di cui questa è l'editio princeps. Testo di fondamentale importanza che, tra i primi, si preoccupa di indicare il grado di rarità delle monete. Così si esprime il severo Cicognara, a proposito di quest'ultima edizione (con una nota di biasimo per la qualità degli intagli aggiunti): "Gio Franc. Baldini imprese di aumentare, correggere, ampliare quest'opera, e la riprodusse in maniera da riescire utilissima, e stabilire meglio d'ogni altra edizione precedente la fama del suo autore. (le due precedenti stampe di Parigi e Amsterdam) furono oscurate dagli accrescimenti con cui venne pubblicata la prima edizione di Roma". Cfr. anche il bello studio di F. Bassoli in: L'Esopo n. 21 pp. 51-60. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        GENOA, ITALY: DE MOUILLE VAN GENUA.

      [Dutch, end of the 18th century]. - Ink and pen drawing on ivory laid paper watermarked 'I VILLEDARY, with upper margin mounted on old paper (Very Good, hardly noticeable stained) 26,5 x 41 cm (10.4 x 16.1 inches), white paper: 38 x 52 cm (14.9 x 20.4 inches). A beautiful ink drawing shows Genoa in Italy from the port and ships with Dutch flags in the front. The view has been dedicated to Pieter baron Melvill van Carnbee (1743-1826), whose coat of arms is depicted in the lower margin. Melvill van Carnbee was a Dutch naval officer, who rose to the rank of vice admiral. Pieter baron Melvill van Carnbee's grandson Pieter Melvill van Carnbee (1816-1856) was a notable geographer. active in the East India Company and known for his maps of the East Indies. The view was probably made before 1797, when the Republic of Genoa was occupied by the French revolutionary army of Napoleon Bonaparte, who overthrew the old elites and replaced them with a popular republic known as the Ligurian Republic.

Sul vitto vegetariano, secondo i precetti pitagorici, in seguito alla pubblicazione all'inizio del '500 del testo del noto filosofo platonico Porfirio (che ne costituisce com'è noto la prima organica teorizzazione per ragioni etiche, accompagnata da una più generale condanna dei sacrifici cruenti) furono pubblicate nei secoli successivi moltissime opere, sia a favore che contrarie.

        Dissertatio inauguralis de prima Alcorani sura [.].

      Altdorf, Johann Adam Hessel, 1743. - 4to. 56 pp. Slightly later papered spine. Very rare sole edition of this detailed study of the Al-Fatihah, the first Surah of the Holy Qu'ran. By the mid-18th century the text of the Qu'ran had become less of a heretical menace to European scholars and more of a document of serious study: the present work focuses on philological subtleties within the various manuscripts of the Qu'ran known to Europeans including Erpenius, Hinckelmann, Wasmuth, and Schiefferdecker. A printed dissertation defended by one of Nagel's students, Jakob Holste, the text presents a word-for-word comparison of two manuscripts of the Al-Fatihah: one in the possession of Nagel himself, and the other of Christoph Fürer von Haimendorf (1541-1610), who had brought a copy back from his visit to the Middle East in 1565. To these are further compared printed editions of Marracio, Hinckelmann, Erpenius, and others. Because no Arab typeface was available in Nuremburg at the time, the author is forced here to write the text of the Al-Fatihah in Hebrew characters (!). The last section of the work gives no less than 17 translations into Latin of the Al-Fatihah drawn from Arabic, Persian, and Turkish. Nagel and his student Holste finally propose a 'perfect' conglomerate translation of the Surah based on their findings. Much space is devoted to the question of whether Al-Fatihah was revealed in Medina or Mecca, and Nagel's discussion of this point even includes topographical details collected from previous authors (cf. pp. 13-15, 31-36). - OCLC shows just a handful of copies in institutions worldwide, including one in America at the University of Chicago. The present copy is deaccessioned from the library of the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich with small release stamps on verso of title-page. Printed glosses trimmed closely, with occasional loss of a few letters; otherwise a good copy. Schnurrer 382. Chauvin I, LXI. Not in Enay. Cf also Encyclopedia of the Qu'ran IV, 250.

Begun in 1633 by his father Giuseppe (1570-1639), the press passed firstly to Giacomo and to his brother Giandomenico (1619-1653), and then later to Lorenzo Filippo (1682-?); in 1738 it became the Calcografia Camerale, from 1870 until 1945 the Regia Calcografica, and today it is known as the Calcografia Nazionale. Here are conserved, amongst many others, the plates of Giambattista Piranesi (1720-1778). Giacomo De' Rossi was the most involved of all the various family members who ran the press, and he worked between 1638 and 1691, and was to take the company to the height of its success.

      Leiden & Amsterdam: S. Luchtmans & H. Uytwerf,, 1743. Vervattende vele middelen om zyn Goed te Vermeerderen, en Zyne Gezondheid te Behouden … 2 volumes, quarto (250 x 203 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, elaborate floral scrollwork to compartments in gilt, raised bands, sprinkled edges. Title pages printed in red and black, contents printed in double columns. Engraved frontispiece by Jan Punt and 80 folding plates, intentionally bound out of order as issued. Spine of volume 1 professionally restored at head, all corners to both volumes restored in sheep. Spines and joints lightly rubbed, some mild surface wear to covers, occasional light dampstain and spotting with the odd stain to contents, otherwise a very good copy. First Dutch edition, first published in France in 1709 as the Dictionnaire Oeconomique. Chomel's celebrated work was arguably the most popular household almanac of the 18th century. Ambitious in scope, the encyclopedia covers a broad variety of topics ranging from domestic chores to botany, distilling techiques, fishing, geometry, and landscaping. Written to provide advice on how to live a successful and healthy life, the book presents a substantial number of remedies and treatments for illnesses as well as practical business wisdom for bankers, merchants, and officers of the courts. The plates illustrate activities, objects, and living organisms such as: plans for elaborate landscape gardens, horse musculature, designs for thermometers and barometers, farming methods, and how to build animal traps. This Dutch edition formed the basis for the Japanese translation of 1783, and until its appearance the Dutch version was widely used in Japan.

        AMOURS DE THEAGENES ET CHARICLEE. HISTOIRE ETHIOPIQUE

      A Paris, chez Coustelier, 1743 - 2 volumes pet. in-8 (16 x 10,3 cm) de X-213 et (1)-190 pages. 10 figures hors-texte et 10 vignettes d'en-tête à l'eau-forte non signés. Vignette à l'eau-forte répétée sur les titres imprimés en rouge et noir. Titre frontispice gravé à l'eau-forte en tête du premier volume. Reliure de l'époque plein maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs orné aux petits fers dorés perlés, filets dorés en encadrement des plats, roulette dorée en encadrement intérieur des plats, doublures et gardes de papier marbré, tranches dorées. Fine reliure non signée mais attribuable à l'un des meilleurs ateliers parisiens de l'époque. Quelques légères usures aux coins (anciennement atténuées) sinon très bel exemplaire. Intérieur très frais imprimé sur beau papier avec marges amples. Les figures hors-texte sont avant la lettre. ÉDITION ILLUSTRÉE DE SECOND TIRAGE. Réimpression page pour page du premier tirage. Elle fut motivée, écrit Cohen, par le désir d'atténuer certaines illustrations un peu libres de la première édition : on couvrit la 8e figure (femme sur le bûcher), on supprima le frontispice du tome II et on répéta les vignettes de façon à éliminer six d'entre elles ; on grava de plus une vignette nouvelle (trois Amours tirant de l'arc) que l'on plaça aux livres 5, 6 et 9. Pour ce second tirage Cohen ne cite que des exemplaires reliés en veau. On ne sait pour ainsi dire rien de cet écrivain syrien de langue grecque ayant vécu au IIIe ou au IVe siècle, auteur d'un roman intitulé les Éthiopiques ou les Amours de Théagène et Chariclée. Ce roman aurait été composé dans sa jeunesse. L'arrière-plan historique que l'on devine dans l'évocation qui est faite de l'Éthiopie, ainsi que la coloration néo-pythagoricienne de l'œuvre et l'insistance sur la religion du soleil (à l'honneur sous le règne d'Aurélien), tout cela incite à situer la date de la composition du roman dans la seconde moitié du IIIe siècle. C'est l'histoire d'une princesse d'Éthiopie (terme désignant alors la Nubie), abandonnée à sa naissance par sa mère la reine Persina et transportée à Delphes où elle est élevée par le Grec Chariclès sous le nom de Chariclée et devient prêtresse d'Artémis. Assistant à des jeux gymniques à Athènes, elle rencontre un jeune Thessalien qui y concourt, nommé Théagène, et ils s'éprennent l'un de l'autre. Pour obéir à un oracle, ils quittent Delphes sous la conduite du sage égyptien Calasiris, et après plusieurs aventures en mer sont jetés par un naufrage en Égypte, sur les bouches du Nil. Ils traversent alors de rudes épreuves, tantôt ensemble, tantôt séparés, notamment du fait de la passion qu'Arsacé, femme du satrape d'Égypte Oroondatès, conçoit pour Théagène. Prisonniers des Perses, ils sont finalement capturés par l'armée du roi Hydaspe et conduits à Méroé, capitale de l'Éthiopie. Inconnus, ils sont sur le point d'être immolés au soleil quand Chariclès arrive de Grèce et la reconnaissance attendue a lieu. L'histoire finit par le mariage des héros, qui se sont gardés fidèles l'un à l'autre. Chariclée, de peau blanche, se croyait grecque, mais se découvre africaine à la fin du roman. Les dernières pages donnent une explication de la couleur blanche de cette jeune fille dont les deux parents sont noirs. À la Renaissance, il fut imprimé pour la première fois à Bâle en 1534, et fut traduit en français par Jacques Amyot en 1547, en anglais par Thomas Underdowne en 1569. Son influence fut très grande aux XVIe et XVIIe siècle : il était vu comme une œuvre majeure de l'Antiquité, au même titre que l’Iliade et l’Odyssée ou que l’Énéide de Virgile. (source Wikipédia).
