        Traité de dynamique, dans lequel les lois de l'equilibre & du mouvement des corps sont réduites au plus petit nombre possible.

      David l¿Aine, Paris 1743 - 4to (219x164 mm). [4], xxvi, [2], 186, [2] pp, engraved title-vignette, 4 engraved folding plates at end. (A few minor marginal stains on title-page and preliminaries.) Contemporary calf (extremities scuffed, boards and spine worn, hinges repaired), very light toning and occasional minor spotting of text. Provenance: Antonii Scherbrant(?), illegible signature to first flyleaf. Very good, internally crisp copy. ---- PMM 195; Poggendorf I, 28; Wellcome II, p. 28; Norman 31. --- FIRST EDITION OF D'ALEMBERT'S IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE FORMALIZING OF NEWTON¿S NEW SCIENCE OF MECHANICS. The Traité de dynamique, one of d'Alembert's most famous scientific works, demonstrates d'Alembert clearly recognized that a scientific revolution had occurred and sets out to formalize the new science of mechanics - an accomplishment often mis-attributed to Newton. The first part of the treatise comprises d'Alembert's own three laws of motion: inertia, the parallelogram of motion, and equilibrium. The second part contains the first statement of what has come to be known as "d'Alembert's Principle:" which states that the internal forces of inertia must be equal and opposite to the forces that produce the acceleration - a theory which is applied to many mechanical and technical problems, in particular to the theory of the motion of fluids. '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 to a law of equilibrium" (PMM).

      [London. 1743?].. 4pp. Folio. Modern red morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, ruled in gilt, spine gilt. Bookplate on rear pastedown. Old horizontal folds. Closed tears neatly repaired along the center horizontal fold. Light soiling. Very good. A rare account of the defense against the 1742 Spanish invasion of Georgia. In 1740, during the War of Jenkin's Ear, General James Oglethorpe, a founder of Georgia, mounted an attack on the Spanish in St. Augustine, Florida. The Spanish repulsed Ogelthorpe's colonial troops, and in 1742 made their own offensive against Georgia, the defense of which is described here. This account was made by Lt. Patrick Sutherland, a member of Oglethorpe's regiment who brought the news back to London. He describes the Spanish naval attack on St. Simon's Island, the colonial response, and the land engagements that followed, all of which occurred in June and July, 1742. The text concludes with a list of the Spanish forces employed in the invasion, including "ninety Indians and 15 Negroes, who run away from South- Carolina." ESTC locates a total of only three copies, at the British Library, the John Carter Brown Library, and the University of Virginia. Sabin notes the copy in the De Renne collection (now at the University of Georgia). Goodspeed's bought the Streeter copy for $1500 in 1967, which is the last copy that we have been able to locate in the market. ESTC T86385. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 743/209. SABIN 93962.

        Watercolor Painting : 'Joseph Brant: The Savage War Chief of the Cherry Valley Massacre' [caption title]

      [American. early 1800s]. Very Good. Watercolor on paper. Image, including manuscript caption, approximately 9 1/2 x 5 inches on a 10 1/4 x 6 3/4 - inch sheet. In a modern metal frame, approximately 17 1/2 x 13 inches, with archivally correct matting. Some evidence of early paste on the verso showing through, some rippling, else very good. The painting shows Mohawk War Chief Jospeh Brant in war paint and a headdress of two red feathers, his right hand raising a tomahawk. Joseph Brant (Indian name Thayendanegea, 1743-1807) was a major Mohawk military and political leader during the American Revolutionary War and Federal Period. Born in present-day Northeast Ohio, he fought for the British forces during the French and Indian War and was subsequently educated at Moor's Charity School, where Eleazar Wheelock wrote with admiration of his intellect and temperament. At the outbreak of the American Revolution, Brant traveled to England, where he met numerous dignitaries, was inducted into the Falcon Lodge of freemasons, and received audience with George III, to whom he pledged his continued loyalty. Returning to America, he led Mohawk warriors and colonial Loyalist soldiers against the Americans, often fighting alongside the Seneca and British. The present painting expresses the greatest of several historical ironies surrounding Brant's life, depicting him as the 'Monster Brant' of the 1778 Cherry Valley Massacre, during which 30 noncombatants were reportedly killed. While a fierce and effective warrior, Brant was, in fact, renowned among both British and American officers for his honor in battle and 'great humanity' toward enemy civilians and prisoners. At Cherry Valley, Brant and his forces tried desperately to prevent a raging group of Seneca warriors who had detached themselves from British command from slaughtering white noncombatants. All military reports of the battle agreed on this point, and his restraint was evident throughout his campaigns in the Mohawk Valley. Nevertheless, his reputation as 'savage' perpetrator of the atrocities at Cherry Valley persisted, particularly in stories that would circulating through the region well after the war. While Brant was the subject of portraits by several major American artists, including Gilbert Stuart, Ezra Ames, and Charles Willson Peale, this painting does not appear to be rendered after a famous original and is likely drawn from imagination - possibly a child's. While the piece may be late 18th-century, the paper on which it is painted suggests a somewhat later date, most likely 1810-1830.

        Oeuvres de Machiavel. Nouvelle edition, augmentee de l'Anti-Machiavel & autres pieces. The Hague: aux depens de la compagnie, 1743.

      - The first edition to include Voltaire's version of Frederick the Great's chapter-by-chapter rebuttal of The Prince. Occupying most of Volume VI, the two texts are printed in parallel so that, as Frederick intended, the antidote sits next to the poison. ‘The history of the publication of the Anti-Machiavel is, of course, fascinating the nub of the matter being the coincidence of Frederick's ascending the throne when publication of his work, maintaining that rulers should govern according to the principles of private morality rather than what we would now call realpolitik, was embarrassingly imminent. As far as content is concerned, Voltaire made some modifications, but not many. [He] eliminated those elements that might jeopardize the international standing of a new (and young) European potentate. These changes involved in particular the elimination of over-dismissive judgements of reigning European heads of state and vigorous anti-clerical or even anti-religious statements. He ruthlessly excised every pleonasm, every redundant (according to classical tenets) image, every tendency to lengthy rhetoric, and every expression of general ideological principles (with which Frederick tended to introduce each chapter of his commentary). As a consequence, Frederick's text was reduced by one third, which, coincidentally, represents the proportion of notes to text for the Anti-Machiavel, so that (since the Refutation is not annotated) the two texts are of almost identical length (Richard Waller, The Modern Language Review, Vol. 94, no 3, 1999, p. 828). 6 volumes, 12mo, title-pages printed in red and black, xvi, 591; 429, [1]; xxii, [ii], 374; xxxii, 446; 480; lx, 485 pp., with the seven folding tables and one engraved folding plate in Volume III, contemporary tree calf, a little flaky, spines gilt in compartments with contrasting labels, rubbed with loss to some spine ends, bookplates of 'Felicie Ewald et Suurum' and E.

        Des Freyherrn von Leibnitz kleinere Philosophische Schriften mit einer Vorrede herrn Chistian Wolffs Jena: Mayer, 1740 [bound with] MEIER: Beweiss, dass keine Materie dencken könne. Halle: Hemmerde, 1743 [bound with] MEIER: Beweis der vorherbestimmten Uebereinstimmung. Halle: Hemmerde, 1743.

      - Rare first Leibniz edition, bound with first editions of two related works by Georg Friedrich Meier (1718-77), one on materialism, the other on pre-established harmony. The Leibniz is rather misleadingly titled; what calls itself a collection of his minor writings in fact includes the Monadologie (in Huth's extended revision of Köhler's 1720 translation from the original French), Leibniz's replies to Bayle on pre-established harmony, and extracts from the correspondence with Samuel Clarke. Ravier 412. The two pieces by Meier are early, dating from his time as a student under A.G. Baumgarten, before he got his full professorship at Halle in 1748. 'While Baumgarten presents his views on Pre-established Harmony and Physical Influx within the context of his general metaphysics textbook, Meier, his student, devotes an entire treatise to the issue in 1743, namely Beweis der vorherbestimmten Ãœbereinstimmung. Accordingly, although Meier follows Baumgarten's main view, he is able to develop it in more detail. Thus, he feels justified in advancing Pre-established Harmony as a theorem rather than as a probable hypothesis' (Eric Watkins, 'From Pre-established Harmony to Physical Influx', JHI, 1998). 3 works in one volume, 8vo, [lxxviii], 464, [xii], 84, [xvi], 231, [1] pp., contemporary vellum with hand-lettered spine, without a front endpaper, early ownership inscription on first title-page, otherwise clean, very good copies.

        Bibliotheca Selectissima sive Catalogus Librorum in omni genere scientiarum rarissimorum... Samuel Engel in Republica Helveto-Bernensi

      Berne: F.S. Fetscherin, 1743. Three parts bound in one, first title in red and black, occasional early underlining, final blank clipped at top corner, a little dusted; a handsome copy in half-vellum over marbled paper boards, the vellum evidently a discarded fragment from an illuminated manuscript, rubbed, early ink author and title added at head of spine. Engel's books. Rare catalogue of the sale of the library of the distinguished Swiss geographer Samuel Engel (1702-1784) in 1743. This copy includes the uncommon third part of the sale: many libraries list only the first two parts. One library which does have all three parts is UCLA (Berkeley): the collation of this copy matches that of the copy at UCLA, making it unusually complete.'Engel was the author of several works on geography and economics. From his early years he was interested in geographical discoveries, particularly those dealing with the Polar regions. He examined diligently the maps and writing of Kirilov (the compiler of the first Russian atlas), Buache, Delisle, Müller, Gmelin, and others - and invariably, with some justification, found something wrong with each of them. He examined these works with regard to the northern parts of both Asia and America. Most of the questions he raised were valid and the present-day student of these regions would profit by reading his work with a modern map before them, to see who was right or wrong - and when wrong, how wrong. A valuable part of Engel's present work is his rejection of the persistent belief held by many of his contemporary geographers and cartographers that California was an island…' (Lada-Mocarski). The first and most substantial part of the catalogue (186 pp.) has works in Latin. As might be expected for a scholar of his day, the classics are well represented, and there are several works of comparative theology and the like. There are also many works of political science, with listings for Francis Bacon, Machiavelli, and several works by the utopian Campanella. There are also several editions of the Roman Catholic Index (the earliest by Innocent XI, 1596-8). A substantial section of the first part is devoted to Engel's collection of Codices Manuscripti. A second separately paginated part (39 pp.) deals with books in German and Dutch, while a third, also with separate pagination (62 pp.), is a selection of Engel's "Librorum Rariorum", this last with rather more substantial notes by the cataloguer. There is little evidence to explain why Engel divested himself of his library at a relatively early age, and it is interesting to speculate as to whether this sale represents a turning point in his career.

        A Prospect of the Chee-Torr &c. on the River Wie, Two Miles below Buxton

      [No place] 1743 - A rare example from a series that was the first to display the picturesque nature of English landscapes. "Landscape prints encouraged admiration of natural scenery and native landscape painters sought British scenes to rival those found [abroad]. In stimulating an appetite for British beauty Thomas Smith of Derby. was a pivotal figure. A subscription for "eight of the most extraordinary Natural Prospects in the Mountainous Part of Derbyshire and Staffordshire, commonly called the peak" was proposed in June 1743. these landscapes. represent the first English appearance of the precipices and cascades that Burke would later call sublime.'(T. Clayton The English Print, 1997, p.157). This print, drawn and etched by Smith, depicts a cascade in the River Wye surrounded by the limestone walls of Chee Tor in Derbyshire. Etching by Thomas Smith with engraving by G?rard Scotin on laid paper, coloured by hand. (Corners rounded, two expertly repaired tears to upper blank margin).

        Nouveau Recueil de contes de Fées [and] La Princesse Sensible et le Prince Typhon

      The Hague [i.e. Paris], 1743. Two bound together, duodecimo, some light spotting but in good condition in contemporary French mottled calf gilt, arms of Charlotte-Anne-Françoise de Montmerency-Luxembourg in gilt on covers. First editions of both works, from the library of the bibliophile Duchesse de Montmerency-Luxembourg. Like all of Lubert's works, these are both only rarely found: NUC lists a single copy of La Princesse Sensible, while Nouveau Recueil is not listed. Lubert (c.1710 - c.1779) was the daughter of a politician. Renouncing marriage she devoted herself to publishing many popular imaginative works, all issued anonymously. The elegance of many of her fairy tales had Voltaire describing her as 'Muse et Grâce'. Nouveau Recueil includes her story 'Le Navire Volant', in which a community of fairies overcome their oppressors by making a flying ship: 'à voïager dans les airs sur le Navire volant, quelque jour les plumes de Phœnix, differement placées, nous permettrons de les voir passer'.

        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

      Engraved vignette on title & four folding engraved plates. 2 p.l., xxvi, [2], 186, [2] pp. 4to, cont. marbled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: David l'aîné, 1743. First edition, and a wonderfully fine and fresh copy, of d'Alembert's masterpiece on dynamics; this has become a scarce book on the market. The present copy is the finest to appear in many many years. "The Traité de dynamique, which has become the most famous of his scientific works, is significant in many ways. First, it is clear that d'Alembert recognized that a scientific revolution had occurred, and he thought that he was doing the job of formalizing the new science of mechanics...The Traité also contained the first statement of what is known as d'Alembert's principle. D'Alembert was, furthermore, in the tradition that attempted to develop mechanics without using the notion of force. Finally, it was long afterward said (rather simplistically) that in this work he resolved the famous vis viva controversy, a statement with just enough truth in it to be plausible."-D.S.B., I, p. 111-(& see pp. 111-13 for a full account of the work). Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. Preserved in a box. ❧ En Français dans le Texte 147. Printing & the Mind of Man 195.

        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, joints skilfully repaired, decorative gilt borders to sides with the cipher of King Christian VII of Denmark at the centre. Royal copy of an important work on naval manoeuvres. 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

Paris: Chez David l'aîné, 1743.

      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." (<i>Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, ch. 11</i>).<br/><br/> &#10087; PMM 195; Norman 31; Roberts & Trent 7; Stanitz 56.<br/><br/> "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). <br/><br/> "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). <br/><br/> 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 <i>Traite</i>, the <i>vis viva</i> controversy by investigating its philosophical basis and dismissing its ontological reality. "In this way d'Alembert was clearly a precursor of positivistic science" (DSB). <br/><br/> D'Alembert was the scientific editor of the <i>Encyclopédie</i>, and his preface to the <i>Traité de dynamique</i> 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.

      A beautiful copy of this milestone of chemical literature, "an advance over anything which had gone before" (Partington) and a "very important book" (Duveen). &#10087;Norman 1288; Duveen 339; Duveen & Klickstein 121.<br/><br/> "A founder of modern chemistry and universally acknowledged as the greatest French chemist of the eighteenth century, Lavoisier (1743-1794) was educated as a lawyer. After attending the chemical lectures of G. F. Rouelle (1768), he began his researches in 1772 on combustion and calcination, experimenting with carbon (diamond), phosphorus, sulphur, and the conversion of cakes into metals "In 1774 Lavoisier published the first and only volume of his <i>Opuscules physiques et chymiques</i>, a pioneer work in which he gives a historical survey of previous workers' efforts and then describes his own experiments on gases and the conclusions to be derived from them" (Duveen & Klickstein). Some of the experiments deal with the composition of the atmosphere and with oxygen. Published the same year as the first volume of Priestley's <i>Experiments and observations on air</i> (1774), it exerted a tremendous influence on Continental chemists and set the stage for Lavoisier's overthrow of the phlogiston theory. Partington (pp. 388-393) analyzes the contents and describes this work as "an advance over anything which had gone before." A "very important book" (Duveen), one of Lavoisier's four major works, and a milestone of chemical literature."

Zu warme Bäder wären der Schönheit abträglich, auch der unmäßige Verzehr von Süßigkeiten, Kaffee, scharfer Gewürze und zu vieler schlechter Biere können gesundheitliche und ästhetische Probleme bewirken. Während der Monatsblutung sollen die Jungfern den Aderlass vermeiden, zu dünne Sommerkleidung nicht in der kalten Jahreszeit tragen und auf geregelte Schlafzeiten achten.

Leather bound copy of this Somervile&#39;s poem which has always been held in high esteem by sportsmen and many editions have been published. William Somervile or Somerville (September 2, 1675 - July 19, 1742) was an English poet. Somervile was the eldest son of a country gentleman, and was born at Edstone, Worcestershire. He was educated at Winchester College and at New College, Oxford. After his father&#39;s death in 1705 he lived on his estate, devoting himself especially to field sports, which supplied the subjects of his best-known poems. His publications were The Two Springs (1725), a fable; Occasional Poems . . . (1727); The Chace (The Chase) (1735); Hobbinol, or the Rural Games (1740), a burlesque poem describing the Cotswold Games; and Field Sports (1742), a poem on hawking. His Chase passed through many editions. It was illustrated by Thomas Bewick (1796), by Thomas Stothard (1800), and by Hugh Thomson (1896), with a preface by RF SharpCondition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are attached. The front board however is attached loosely by one cord only and may fully detach in the post. The rear hinge is strained but holding. Internally the book is generally very clean and bright apart from the occasional mild spot. There is a long copperplate inscription to the first blank end paper..
