        Seasonable Thoughts on the State of Religion in New England…

      Boston: Rodgers and Fowle, 1743. 8vo, contemporary paneled calf, rebacked, with new endpapers, red morocco label on spine, 424 pp. Lacking upper corner of title page, but not affecting text, binding with some wear, and rubbing, signature on title, mended tear on first leaf, some foxing and aging, especially on title and first leaf. Charles Chauncy (1705-1787) was considered one of the most influential clergymen of his time. He graduated from Harvard in 1721, and became the pastor of the First Church of Boston, where he presided for 60 years. He had an interesting career and published many tracts on important subjects, and even managed to have three wives along the way. He became the leader of the “Old Lights” or liberals in theology, and was also the leader in the opposition to the establishment of an “Anglican bishopric in the American colonies.” During the American Revolution, he supported the cause in his sermons and pamphlets. He is probably best known for this work "Seasonable Thoughts on the State of Religion in New England." DAB Vol.II. Evans 5151.

        A Proposal to Determine our Longitude

      Second edition. 8vo. 200x125mm. pp. unnumbered half-title, (3), folding table and explanatory notes entitled "Lodgitude", 5-160. The contents pages (L1-L2) have, as is usual, been bound after page 152 (the end of the main text) and before the postscript which starts on p154 (153 being blank). Contemporary tan calf with single line gilt border to upper and lower covers. Five raised bands and six compartments with gilt borders. Second compartment has a black morocco label with "Squire On the Longit" tooled in gold. In the centre of both upper and lower covers is a black morocco roundel with a decorative gilt roll. The roundel is divided into four quadrants by crossed gold lines and each quadrant contains a design based on the symbols used by Jane Squire to demonstrate her theories. This use of decoration on the cover relating to the contents of the book is unusual before the nineteenth century and Squire's "Proposal" is an extremely rare example of the practice in the eighteenth century. This is a near-fine binding with a little looseness to the hinges and some minor staining to the foot of the upper and lower covers. The contents are in fine condition with no foxing. There are some very light pencil lines in the margins made by a previous reader to note important points in the text. Overall, this is a very nice copy of a comparatively rare volume. In 1714, Parliament formed a committee for discovering a system of determining longitude. The large prize of £20,000 (about £1.5m today) was won by John Harrison. Jane Squire was the only woman who entered the competition without hiding her sex behind a pseudonym. Squire was born in 1671 and died in 1743 (as this second edition was being published). She is rare in being an educated female mathematician and scientist at a time when women's education was largely ignored altogether. Jane Squire began by writing an eleven page pamphlet in 1731 but it seems that this was largely ignored. Her "Proposal to Determine our Longitude" was a fuller sequel to that pamphlet. The first edition of this work was published in 1741 in English and French. This second edition, in English only, contains the Proposal itself taken from the original pamphlet, together with her correspondence to and from the MPs who served on the longitude committee. In her letters Squire complains how her proposal was not taken seriously and it seems clear that this was, in large part, because she was a woman. Whilst her ideas were never likely to win the competition - even admirers admit that they were impractical - she was undoubtedly the victim of some prejudice and her book is a valuable insight into the experience of women in science in the eighteenth century. Modern scholarship is now taking Squire seriously, not so much for her ideas on longitude, but for her pioneering role as a female scientist and an educated woman.

        Keuren van 't Vrye en 't Leenhof tot Sluys in Vlaanderen. Anno 1743. [Sluis (in Zeeland), 1743]. Folio (33 x 21 cm). Manuscript written in Dutch, in brown ink on paper, with the coat of arms of the district Vrije van Sluis on the title-page coloured by a contemporary hand in opaque gouaches and gold. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine.

      - A manuscript compiled in 1743, at least partly by Adriaan Reynesteyn (b. ca. 1700?), born, married and living in Sluis, transcribing ten extensive manuscripts (and adding two indexes) containing official documents of the district known as Het Vrije van Sluis, in southwestern Zeeland on what is now the Dutch-Belgian border. The manuscripts transcribed range in date from 1542 to 1695 and record the district's statutes, ordinances, regulations for the division and inheritance of land, rules of litigation, remuneration of district officials for various services, and feudal, customary and common law. At the end of each section, the compiler gives the date and source of the original manuscript, the name of the registrar who signed the original and often the names of the burgomasters and other officials. One notes that Adriaan Reynesteyn made the present copy on 29 October 1743 and many, but not all, appear to be in the same hand.On 5 pages the last letter or number of some lines has been shaved, but can still be read. Otherwise in very good condition, with only some small worm holes in the head of the gutter margin in the first few quires. The binding is scuffed and has a few tears. A wealth of important material for the history of the district Het Vrije van Sluis in Zeeland.

        Traité de dynamique, dans lequel les Loix de l'equilibre & du mouvement des corps sont réduites au plus petit nombre possible, & démontrées d'une maniére nouvelle, & où l'on donne un principe général pour trouver le mouvement de plusieurs corps qui agissent les uns sur les autres, d'une maniére quelconque.

      Paris: Chez David l'aîné, 1743. D'Alembert's principle. First edition of this landmark in the history of mechanics. "This book, D'Alembert's magnum opus, was one of the first to give a unified view of mechanics. It started out from a minimum of principles, one of which came to be named after him." (Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, ch. 11). ❧ PMM 195; Norman 31; Roberts & Trent 7; Stanitz 56. "The 'Treatise on Dynamics' was d'Alembert's first major book and it is a landmark in the history of mechanics. It reduces the laws of the motion of bodies a law of equilibrium. Its statement that 'the internal for of inertia must be equal and opposite to the forces to 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. It has become useful in the practical solution of many technical and mechanical problems, and is as import for the motion of bodies as is the principle of virtual velocities for their equilibrium" (PMM). "The treatise itself consists of two parts; the first defines the general laws of motion and the equilibrium of bodies, while the second considers the general principles of move¬ment of several bodies acted upon by each other. D'Alembert's work is at least as important as that of Laplace and exceeds the practical and engineering utility of Des¬cartes. In essence, d'Alembert and Coriolis provided engineers with two of the tools necessary to practice their profession." (Roberts & Trent). This work was the foundation for Lagrange's classic book on analytical mechanics which codified the laws governing the motions of any systems of bodies. D'Alembert is also credited with laying to rest, in the Traite, the vis viva controversy by investigating its philosophical basis and dismissing its ontological reality. "In this way d'Alembert was clearly a precursor of positivistic science" (DSB). D'Alembert was the scientific editor of the Encyclopédie, and his preface to the Traité de dynamique sets out his philosophy of science and his recognition of the conceptual revolution catalysed by Newton. 4to (220 x 168 mm), pp [4] xxvi [2] 186 [2] and four folding engraved plates of diagrams, vignette by Duflos on title. Contemporary calf with gilt spine and red spine label, some wear to extremeties, but completely unrestored. Provenance: The Janus Foundation (book plate to front pastedown); T. Blixenstierna (engraved book plate to verso of title).

        Tansaï et Neadarné. Histoire japonoise, avec figures

      - S.n., A Pékin 1743, 4 tomes en 2 Vol. in 12 (8x14cm), (4) XXIV, 274pp. et (4) 238pp., relié. - La prima edizione di questa edizione illustrata risale al 1740, l'edizione originale del testo unico risalente al 1734 A suo frontespizio (l'imperatore cinese e la sua corte), due frontespizi con vignette completamente incisi (satiri) e 4 figure deliziosamente erotico e finemente inciso. Queste stampe hanno una posizione su ciascuno di loro, quello che ha fatto vitello pas.Plein ghiacciata edizione epoca dal 1740. Dorso liscio decorato. Parte del titolo e numero del volume in marocchino rosso. Presenze Volume II livellato; 2 angoli élimées.Ce racconto licenzioso ed erotico ha vinto alla sua uscita un successo, anche se ha causato uno scandalo e che ha accusato l'autore di oscenità, irreligione; alcuni anche visto una critica di Ugénitus bolla (contro il giansenismo) e il cardinale de Rohan, e la vita Crebillon imprigionato dopo le sue accuse. Tanzai è una favola e politico, compresa la stranezza della storia sorprende sempre il lettore, tutta la storia ruota attorno a un enorme giro skimmer oro ... - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] La première parution de cette édition illustrée date de 1740, l'édition originale du texte seul remontant, elle, à 1734. Un frontispice (l'empereur de Chine et sa cour), deux pages de titre entièrement gravées avec vignettes (satyres) et 4 figures délicieusement érotiques et finement gravées. Ces gravures ont un placement sur chacune d'entre elles, ce que l'édition de 1740 n'a pas. Reliure en plein veau d'époque glacé. Dos lisse orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Coiffes du tome II arasées ; 2 coins élimées. Ce conte licencieux et érotique, qui vogue sur la mode de l'orientalisme merveilleux, remporta dès sa parution un vif succès, bien qu'il fit scandale et qu'on accusa l'auteur d'obscénité, d'irréligion ; certains y virent même une critique de la bulle Ugénitus (contre le jansénisme) et du cardinal de Rohan, et Crébillon se vit emprisonné à la suite de ses accusations. Tanzaï est un conte féérique et politique, dont l'étrangeté de l'intrigue surprend toujours le lecteur, toute l'histoire tournant autour d'une écumoire en or au manche énorme... En effet l'inventivité fictionnelle s'exhibe sans retenue dans cette oeuvre de Crébillon fils, elle fit écrire à Voltaire en 1735 : "Je ne sais rien de si fou que ce livre. Si je l'avais fait je serais brûlé".

The bibliophile Vincent van Gogh's (1866-1911) copy (with his fine etched bookplate) of a beautiful book of 36 splendid large views of cities, towns, noblemen's estates, and castles in the Dutch province of Zeeland, with an elaborately decorated armorial title-page, first engraved in the years 1654 to 1662 and published by Zacharias Roman in Middelburg. The cities shown include Middelburg, Vlissingen, Goes, Zierikzee, Tholen and Veere. The title appears in an elaborate cartouche with the arms of Zeeland and of these six cities, with allegorical figures and a view of Middelburg with ships. The three views of Middelburg include two different views from the harbour side, one printed from Roman's first plate of ca. 1655, and the other from a plate that replaced it in publications between 1657 and 1660 (the earlier editions therefore included one or the other). The book is rarely found complete, as most copies were broken up and the cherished prints sold individually.Vincent van Gogh, nephew of the famous painter, was an art dealer and well known bibliophile. His copy of the Speculum Zelandia formed part of the final auction of his library in 1918. That auction contained a collection "not large in size but of high quality... one of the finest collections of Dutch books ever to have been amassed in our country" (De la Fontaine Verwey).With the beautiful etched bookplate of Van Gogh (by Marius Bauer), including a knight and two horses and the Van Gogh coat of arms; and a ca. 1900 bookplate of Theodoor Johan Verrijn Stuart (1869-1930). In very good condition and with the margins untrimmed, leaving the deckles intact. Some margins a bit frayed and spotted, a few marginal wormholes not approaching the plate edges, some minor stains in the last plate slightly affecting the image. Vincent van Gogh's copy of a magnificent book of 17th-century Zeeland views.

        Søe-Evolutioner eller En Orlogs-Flodes... Uddragne af P. Paul Hostes Verk: L'art Des armées navales og med endeel Ænmerkninger forbedrede.

      Copenhagen: Ernst Henrich Berling, 1743. Folio, with woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, engraved allegorical frontispiece and 68 full-page plates, mostly showing various formations, manoeuvring, and engagements of naval fleets; title-page with oval library stamp of "Søe Officerernes Bibliothek Stempel"; a fine, fresh copy in an attractive contemporary calf binding, decorative gilt borders to sides with the cipher of King Christian VII of Denmark at the centre. A wonderful royal copy of this splendid naval work, bound for Christian VII (1749-1808) who ruled as King of Denmark and Norway from 1766. This is the first edition of this important Danish work on naval manoeuvres, based on the French classic L'Art des Armées Navales by Père Paul l'Hoste, first published in Lyons in 1697.'Hoste's book was an immediate success and soon became very well known. It was republished in 1727. Over the course of the eighteenth century several books based on L'Art des Armées Navales were to appear. In 1743 C.F.L. Fontenay, an officer in the Danish Navy, published Søe-Evolutioner eller En Orlogs-Flodes... Although this book relied heavily on L'Art des Armées Navales it is not simply a translation of that work. De Fontenay revised much of the text, omitted many of the mathematical elements of Hoste's original, added much derived from his own experience as a naval officer and had the plates re-engraved...' (Hugh Cahill: see note below).Paul l'Hoste (1652-1700) was a Jesuit who served in the French navy as a chaplain. Despite his higher calling he was a gifted naval strategist who developed a system of tactics based on the single line ahead and the independent action of squadrons, using new ideas such as "doubling" and "breaking the line". His book was 'a standard work on naval tactics, which includes valuable accounts (with many engraved illustrations) of the battles of the Second Dutch War...' (National Maritime Museum Library Catalogue). Instructions are given for the fleet to sail out in an orderly formation, deploy for battle in line or column, retreat, cope with foul weather, and so on. The fine and detailed engravings illustrate how the ships of a fleet should shift from one formation to another.An excellent article on Hoste's book by Hugh Cahill appears in the King's College London "Book of the Month Archive" at www.kcl.ac.uk/depsta/iss/library/speccoll/bomarch/bomarch.html.

        Description nouvelle de la Cathedrale de Strasbourg et de sa fameuse Tour.

      Strassburg, Simon Kürsner, 1743 - 12mo. [8] + 133 + [7]p. Title in red & black. With 10 engraved illustrations (lettered A-K), of which 4 are folding by A. Dannegger and 2 tables in text, ornate decorative tail-pieces, printer's ornaments and initial capitals throughout. Contemporary vellum boards. An attractive early 18th century illustrated guide to the Strassburg Minster, one of the wonders of medieval gothic architecture, compiled from various German sources. The plates show the ground plan, an overall view, the ornate portal, treasures of the cathedral and its famous astronomical clock. Goethe first saw the Minster in 1770 as a university student and was so overwhelmed by its architectural splendour that he dedicated a monograph to the cathedral and its architect Erwin von Steinbach in 1773, which became a source of inspiration for Gothic revivalism.(Von deutscher Baukunst). The cathedral tower was the highest building in the world until the 2nd half of the 19th century. A very good coppy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      4 vols. (3 vols. Opera + later Index vol.), 4to., pp. [x], LXXII, 882 + 1 plate; [iv], 953, [i]; [iv], 860; [viii], XVI, 500, [iv]. Index volume lacks gathering 4D, and has the 'Index Criticus' bound before the main text (rather than its usual place at the rear). Half-titles to vols. I-III, title-pages in red and black with engraved printer's devices except vol.IV which has a woodcut decoration. Woodcut initials, engraved head- and tail-pieces, occasional illustrations in the text. Parallel columns of Greek text and Latin translation, Latin footnotes. Some light foxing mostly restricted to front and rear, occasional dustiness to some head margins and final leaves, a little toning to Index vol. around text, to vol.III a slight separation between gatherings A and B. Contemporary vellum, titles inked to spines, raised bands, boards blindstamped, edges heavily sprinkled red. Light smudgy marks and a few small stains, lower corner of vol. III's upper board curved inwards a little but a very good, attractive set. Bound uniformly with our stock number 51574, Burmann's Virgil (1746). The famous three-volume edition of Lucian by the eminent 18th-century classicist Tiberius Hemsterhuis (1685-1766), together with a fourth volume of indices produced three years later by Conrad Reitz. In 1824 Jacob Geel published a further 66-page volume of Hemsterhusius' annotations which had been supposed to have been burnt, but had in fact been preserved in Leiden public library. 'This is not only the most beautiful, but the most accurate and complete edition of Lucian that has ever been published: the editors were Hemsterhusius, J.M. Gesner, and Reitzius. The greater part of the first volume was particularly the production of Hemsterhusius, and it contains a rich find of the most curious and profound criticism relating to Lucian; the second and third volumes were completed chiefly by J. Reitzius; the fourth volume [...] was compiled by Conrad Reitzius, the brother: Gesner had the care of the Latin version, which is a very excellent one, and accompanied with useful notes. The high character which this edition has long borne in the classical world, makes it unnecessary to give minute description of its contents [...]' (Dibdin). 'Édition la plus estimée de cet auteur' (Brunet).

        A Voyage to the South Seas, in the Years 1740-1.

      London: Jacob Robinson, 1743. Octavo, in contemporary sprinkled sheep. First edition of one of the classic stories of shipwreck survival: the loss of the Wager.This famous account jointly written by the gunner and the carpenter on the Wager describes the wreck of the ship, one of Anson's fleet, off the coast of Chile, the survivors' life on shore, and their subsequent voyage in a longboat through the Straits of Magellan to Rio de Janeiro. As Spate has remarked, 'For wild drama, or melodrama, very few tales of the sea can match this of the Wager'.Like Anson's official account of the full expedition this was a popular book and went through a number of editions. There were two editions in the first year of publication, one as here giving the authors' names on the title-page and the other anonymously published. Covers repaired. A good copy.

Peter Kolbe fut envoyé au Cap avec des lettres d'introduction du maire d'Amsterdam Nicolas Wisen, dans le but de faire une description des territoires de l'Afrique du sud, et aussi des observations astronomiques. Il resta au Cap de 1705 à 1713. Il donne une description détaillée de la vie au Cap, du climat, de la géographie, de la flore et de la faune. L'auteur a aussi étudié les moeurs de Hottentots, leurs coutumes, leur langage etc.. Son livre fut le premier à faire connaître en détail la colonie hollandaise du Cap. Ce voyage lui fut très pénible, à l'aller il perdit tous ses cheveux, et à la suite d'un ophtalmie en 1712 il revint presque aveugle, et il mourut pauvre en 1736. ¶ Tiele 606 - Chadenat n°883 "ouvrage intéressant..."

The book was published in eight fascicules, each with a separate title-page, beginning in 1743 and ending in 1756. "Although nearly ten different engravers prepared plates for the book, the plates are all of high quality and are clear, artistic, and exact renditions of their subject. The plates depict nearly all the arteries of the human body as well as the various organs. There are special plates of the heart, omentum, base of the skull, diaphragm, uterus, and spinal cord" (Heirs of Hippocrates). The complete work contains a total of forty-seven plates by Joel Paul Kaltenhofer (d. 1777), C. J. Rollinus, and others. "The order of the subjects is purely accidental, depending upon the author's occasional necessities of making some accurate dissections of certain organs. Besides the general views of the system of the arteries of the whole body, as given in the last four plates, various other plates represent on a larger scale almost all the arteries of special sites and organs, with the surrounding parts. Then there will further be found special representations of the diaphragm, the spinal cord, the uterus and its appendages, the omentum, the base of the skull, and the heart. This work will always remain the main source of information for accurate anatomic studies, especially of the arteries and the viscera" (Choulant-Frank, p.290). Very Good....
