        A SERMON PREACH'D IN NEW-ARK, JUNE 12. 1744. AT THE ORDINATION OF MR. DAVID BRAINERD, A MISSIONARY AMONG THE INDIANS UPON THE BORDERS OF THE PROVINCES OF NEW-YORK, NEW-JERSEY, AND PENNSYLVANIA. WITH AN APPENDIX, TOUCHING THE INDIAN AFFAIRS.

      Boston: Rogers and Fowle, 1744. - [1],iv,39pp. Later plain wrappers. Light dampstaining and scattered foxing. Very good. A very rare pamphlet relating to the missionary work of David Brainerd amongst the Indians in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania in the mid-18th century. Ebenezer Pemberton was a prominent Boston-born minister. He served as minister of New York's First Presbyterian Church from 1726 through 1753, during which time he also served as a member of the New Jersey Board of the Society in Scotland for Propagating Christian Knowledge. This society, an Anglican missionary organization, was founded to establish schools and promote the faith in "uncivilized" parts of the Scottish Highlands and among the American Indians in the colonies. The organization hired missionaries in the colonies including David Brainerd who was approved for missionary work in November 1742. Shortly thereafter, Brainerd began his work proselytizing to American Indians in Pennsylvania, New York, and especially in New Jersey where his ministry proved most fruitful. Following his ordination in 1744 at which Pemberton delivered this sermon, Brainerd continued to work and live among the American Indians. He preached to tribes in Kaunaumeek (a settlement in the woods between Stockbridge and Albany), and then at present day Easton, Pennsylvania, and also at Crosweeksung (now Crosswicks, New Jersey). Expelled from Yale for sympathizing with the Whitefield revival and for remarking that a college tutor had "no more grace than this chair," Brainerd was nevertheless successful as a missionary to various Indian tribes in the Massachusetts- New York border region and in New Jersey. He died at the age of twenty-nine in the home of Jonathan Edwards, whose daughter he was engaged to marry. With the publication of his journal and biographies detailing his life, Brainerd became a popular and influential figure among leading Christians and missionaries. Perhaps because of its connection to the short and inspirational life of Brainerd, the sermon printed here became one of Pemberton's most famous. The appendix, which contains "a short Account of the Endeavours.to introduce the Gospel among the I Indians upon borders of New-York," is actually written by Brainerd, in the form of a letter to Pemberton. In it he describes in detail the year he spent in northern New York in 1743-44, and his endeavors as a minister. One of the earliest accounts of Brainerd's missonary work, and quite rare on the market. ESTC W3138. EVANS 5471. HOWES P190. SABIN 59608.

A notable copy of this important catalogue compiled by Gersaint (d. 1750); it is one of the rare examples priced throughout with most of the buyers' names. This copy belonged to Baron Pichon, the great 19th-century book collector, and he has written on the free front-endpaper: "Il est rare de trouver ce catalogue avec des noms d'acquérieurs comme en a la présent exemplaire. B.J.P." "Rare…This is one of the most important catalogs prepared by the prolific Gersaint and is innovative is several ways. Besides the substantial descriptions of the collection objects, he has included biographies of several artists. In addition, the catalog also includes the most complete list of the work of the French artist and engraver, Jacques Callot [1592-1635], including prints not included in the sale… "The collection was notable for its fine paintings, drawings and prints. The drawings were mainly Dutch and Flemish, including numerous landscapes, or French. Also included were a group of almost 500 drawings by Claude Gillot. The prints represented a comprehensive survey of the Northern, Italian and French schools. Also included in this catalog are his collections of illuminations, books, shells, corals, atlases and maps, and natural history objects including a few minerals."-Schuh, Mineralogy & Crystallography: A Biobibliography, 1469 to 1920, 1875.

Egerton; Invertebrate Zoology and Parasitology During the 1700s p. 416-17: 'Regeneration in hydra was discovered by a Genevan scholar living in The Netherlands, Abraham Trembly (1710-1784), [.]. When Trembly discovered a green hydra (= Chlorohydra viridissima) [.] he was uncertain whether it was animal or plant. He thought he could decide by cutting it in half and seeing if it died like an animal or regenerated like a plant. It did regenerate, but its behavior left him uncertain. On 26 September, he initiated a correspondence with Réaumur [.]. After Trembley sent him live specimens, Réaumur assured him that they were animals. By the time Trembley sent an account to the Royal Society of London (1743), word of his sensational discovery had arrived several times [.]. The book he published on his experiments in 1744 explained more than 50 discoveries, including green hydras moving towards light despite the lack of eyes. He was highly praised both for his techniques and conclusions [.]. The illustrations were drawn and engraved by his friend and fellow naturalist, Pierre Lyonet (1706-1789), whose own anatomical studies and illustrations of insects made him the worthy successor of Swammerdam and Malpighi [.].'

        An Account of the Glacieres, or Ice Alps in Savoy.

      London: printed for Peter Martel, and sold by W. Meadows [and 5 others],, 1744. In Two Letters, one from an English Gentleman to his Friend at Geneva, the other from Peter Martel, Engineer, to the said English Gentleman. Illustrated with a Map, and two Views of the Place, etc., as laid before the Royal Society. Quarto (270 x 206 mm), 28 pp. Original plain paper wrappers, manuscript title inked to front panel. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco slipcase with chemise by the Chelsea Bindery. 2 copper-engraved folding plates. "Lucanus cervus", the Linnaean classification for the stag beetle, inscribed to the rear wrapper upside-down in a contemporary hand; later discreet monogram "GHM" inked to front wrapper verso. Wrappers marked, contents variably spotted, soiled and damp-stained, initial blank excised as often, title page marked, and chipped at lower outer corner to no loss of text, nevertheless a very good copy. First edition of one of the most important works of early mountaineering literature, and "the cornerstone for a Mont Blanc collection" (Meckly), the second plate incorporating the first printed map to identify the mountain by name. Extremely rare in the original wrappers, with the scattering of copies traced in auction records either rebound or part of a sammelband, and often heavily restored; this copy additionally has the contemporary ownership inscription "M. Maty" to the title page, likely that of the noted Dutch Huguenot physician and librarian Matthew Maty (1718-1776), who arrived in London in 1740 and in 1756 became one of the three original keepers of the British Museum. Windham, the son of a wealthy Norfolk landowner, spent time in Geneva among a circle of British expatriates known as the Common Room, and with a few other members of the circle joined Richard Pococke's expedition to Chamonix in June 1741. The group scaled the Montenvers and formally discovered the Mer de Glace, depicted in one of the plates; thus they appear to have become the first recorded travellers for pleasure in the region. Windham's pioneering account "is always linked with that of Pierre Martel, who visited Chamonix the following year. Both their original accounts were written in French and circulated in Geneva in manuscript only. A version (still in French) of the two manuscripts, edited by Leonard Boulacre, was published in Journal Helvetique, May-June, 1743" (Neate). The records of the printer, William Bowyer, show that 500 copies were printed (ESTC). A second edition was printed at Ipswich in 1747.

      Impensis Ioannis Iacobi Kornii, Vratislaviae 1744 - In-folio (355x215mm), pp. (10), 732, (44) di indice, legatura coeva p. pelle marmorizzata con dorso a nervetti decorati in oro con titolo in oro su tassello rosso, filetti, fiorellini e tralci vegetali in oro entro scomparti. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con vignetta incisa. Testo su due colonne. Bruniture e fioriture fisiologiche nei libri tedeschi di quel tempo. Bell'esemplare. Edizione originale, postuma. Nella raccolta, curata dal figlio dell'Heinecke, Johann Christian Gottlieb, compare anche in edizione originale il De Quaestionibus quibusdam ad feuda Langharum, pot. Sardiniae Regi cessa, pertinentibus, una trattazione di diritto feudale relativa alle Langhe, cedute col Trattato di Vienna del 1738 a Carlo Emanuele III di Savoia, quale riconoscimento per la partecipazione alla guerra di successione polacca e a quella di successione austriaca. Il colophon indica come questo primo tomo, ma il solo esemplare censito in SBN / ICCU (Biblioteca Statale di Trieste) è anch'esso in un unico volume, così come le copie riscontrate in Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog, né vi è traccia di alcuna tomaison nella legatura. L'Heinecke (Eisenberg, 1681-Halle, 1741), giurista e filosofo, professore di diritto ad Halle, fu autore di numerosissimi scritti tradotti nelle principali lingue europee. Immensa fu la sua fama di giureconsulto, affidata soprattutto al De Jure Principis circa civium studia del 1738, in cui egli delegava al sovrano il diritto di assegnare ai sudditi la professione più confacente alle loro attitudini e il dovere di imporre in ogni ordine di scuole una sicura disciplina didattica. Tuttavia, i suoi studi si estesero a quasi tutti i rami del diritto e introdussero in esso il metodo cosiddetto assiomatico, che consiste nel dare di un problema giuridico un'esatta definizione, deducendone poi tutti gli assiomi fondamentali, che diventano quindi i principi delle varie norme giuridiche.

        Cent fables en Latin et en François, choisies des anciens auteurs, mises en vers Latins ..., et traduites par Mr. Perrault, ... Avec de nouvelles figures en taille-douce. Nouvelle edition.London, C. Marsh & T. Payne, H. Slater, S. Baker, F. Noble, W. Bathoe, J. Palairet, 1744. 4to (26.5 x 20.5 cm). With richly designed, engraved frontispiece by Claude Du Bosc, and 99 (of 100) fine engraved illustrations to the fables on integral leaves (plate size about 9.5 x 10.5 cm). Early 19th-century half calf, for the Signet Library in Edinburgh, each board with the gold-tooled British Royal arms. Restored and with later 19th-century endpapers, but with the early 19th-century printed label with the shelf-mark transferred to the front paste-down.

      ESTC N26724; cf. Cicognara 1124; Cohen & De Ricci 371; Pierpont-Morgan, Early children's books 11; not in Fabula Docet. The 1744 issue of Du Bosc's important and luxurious 1743 edition of one hundred fables by Gabriello Faerno (1511-1561) in the original Latin verse (based mostly on Aesop, in part via Phaedrus) with parallel verse translations into French by Charles Perrault (1628-1703), best known as the author of the "Mother Goose" fairy tales, and with extensive additional material, including poems and letters by Faerno. Claude Du Bosc (1682-1746?), a French engraver who worked in England from 1712, signed the beautiful engraved frontispiece (Aesop talking to the animals) and almost certainly engraved the other illustrations and/or had them engraved by his assistants under his supervision. The present frontispiece and illustrations first appeared in the 1741, but the plates for the illustrations were revised or possibly even replaced (they now have wider borders) for Du Bosc's present 1743 edition. They bear no close relation to the illustrations in any Aesop, Phaedrus or Faerno edition before 1741 and form an original contribution to the illustration of these fables. Often the dark hatching of the backgrounds brings out the foreground With the 18th-century armorial bookplate of the Reverend Doctor Thomas Drummond. The Drummond arms is that of the Earls of Perth and Melfort. The illustration for fable 39 was accidentally omitted on page 91, which has a blank space where it should stand, and a crease made in the paper at the time of printing slightly affects the illustration for fable 63. There are also a few marginal stains in the first few leaves, not approaching the text, but the book is otherwise in very good condition and only slightly trimmed, giving very generous margins. The calf spine and corners had suffered from flaking but have been restored and are now sound. A luxurious edition of Faerno's 100 fables, combining all the textual additions of the excellent 1718 French edition with the original Latin and the new illustrations made by Claude Du Bosc in 1741.

        La secchia rapita

      In 8°; legatura coeva in mezza pelle, dorso con tassello e titolo in oro, tagli rossi (cuffie ed angoli restaurati); antiporta incisa in legno, frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero con vignetta al centro (che raffigura una civetta sulla secchia con Modena sullo sfondo), pp. 508 [i.e. 510 per l'inserimento di una carta tre le pp. 94-95 contenente l'Appendice alla vita di Alessandro Tassoni] con una grande Tavola genealogica de' personaggi della casa Tassoni di Modena più volte ripiegata fuori testo ed un facsimile di scrittura del Tassoni inciso in rame fuori testo e ripiegato. L'apparato illustrativo nel testo comprende inoltre un legno a tutta pagina raffigurante la torre di Modena detta Ghirlandina (ripetuto due volte), un ritratto in legno dell'autore e 12 tavole xilografiche a tutta pagina poste all'inizio di ogni canto. Grandi iniziali ornate. Esemplare lievemente brunito e a tratti un po' fiorito, ma nel complesso genuino. Il presente esemplare contiene inoltre un ulteriore facsimile di scrittura del Tassoni sempre inciso in rame fuori testo, due grandi mappa calcografiche più volte ripiegate fuori testo (del modenese e dei territori del veneziano e della Romagna) ed infine una tavola in rame raffigurante il carroccio dei Modenesi: tutte queste tavole aggiuntive e non pertinenti con questa edizione provengono dall'edizione in 4to dello stesso anno. CELEBRE EDIZIONE FIGURATA del poema tassoniano, corredata da splendide figure in rame e dagli apparati critici di Gaspare Salviani e Giovanni Andrea Barotti. La prima edizione della Secchia stampata a Modena fu quella data da Antonio Capponi nel 1700. Data la sua scorrettezza, negli ambienti culturali cittadini, dominati dalla figura di L.A. Muratori e dal suo gusto celebrativo per le memorie patrie, si sentì l'esigenza di colmare questa mancanza, pubblicando un'edizione che fosse al contempo filologicamente corretta ed tipograficamente illustrata per rendere omaggio alla memoria del Tassoni. "In questa situazione le tre stampe di Bartolomeo Soliani, [quella in 24mo del 1743 e quelle in 4to ed in 8vo del 1744], costituirono un avvenimento editoriale di grande rilievo. Precedute da un lungo lavoro di preparazione, esse, infatti, colmarono una pressoché secolare lacuna e, rispondendo ad un'esigenza culturale, assolsero al duplice impegnativo compito di proporre un testo filologicamente curato – quello voluto da Urbano VIII – e di offrire, almeno due di esse, un'illustrazione di prim'ordine" (P. Puliatti, Bibliografia di Alessandro Tassoni, Firenze, 1969, p. 184). Il testo fu curato dal Barotti (1701-1772), il quale utilizzò il testo riveduto della seconda edizione di Ronciglione del 1624, conforme ai dettami di Urbano VIII, confrontandolo con i manoscritti e le altre edizioni. Nella prefazione egli traccia una storia della composizione della Secchia, per primo indicando il 1614 come data postquem dell'inizio della composizione. Nelle note infine egli mette in evidenza allusioni a fatti e personaggi del tempo del poeta e introduce dotte osservazioni linguistiche, richiamandosi alle fonti del poema. Il testo da lui approntato fu utilizzato per tutte e tre le edizioni Soliani (cfr. D.B.I., VI, p. 486-487). Puliatti, Op. cit., nr. 129; Gamba, 2097; Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\UBOE\022858..

        Military memoirs and maxims of Marshal Turenne. Interspersed with others, taken from the best authors and observation, with remarks. By A. Williamson, Major-General. Aut nunquam tentes, aut perfice. The Second edition.

      London, Printed for J. and P. Knapton, at the Crown in Ludgate-Street, 1744. Small 8vo. Contemporary sprinkled calf, spine with raised bands and new lettering-piece, boards with gilt double-fillets; pp. xii, [4], 190, [2, advertisements]; expertly rebacked, extremities a little worn; a rather clean and fresh copy, printed on high-quality paper. 'In fact a reissue of the first edition with a cancel titlepage' (ESTC). These are the maxims on military tactics, written by one of the greatest military leaders serving under Louis XIV, who was much admired by his troops. The translator Lieutenant-General Adam Williamson was Deputy-Lieutenent of the Tower from 1722 until his death in 1747. Turenne deals in very determined and precise manner with the march of an army, the logistics of food and other supplies, battles, fortifications, the role of the artillery, government of occupied towns, siege and capitulation. A real no-nonsense approach to the art of war of the 17th century. ESTC T142786.

        Al Dolo

      An. Canal. f. [1744] - Etching with early hand colouring Image 293 x 427 mm, Plate 302 x 432 mm, Sheet 353 x 452 mm A view of the town of Dolo on the Riviera del Brenta, near Venice, one of a rare series of 34 etchings of Venetian Vedute by Canaletto. Numerous boats and gondolas transport goods up the Brenta river, while groups of people wander the banks. On the left, the bank is faced by a number of large palazzi, including a large Palladian villa, while on the right, the Church of San Rocco and its tower overlooks a tidal garden. The town of Dola became an important inland transport hub following the decrease of Venetian maritime power in the Mediterranean. The tower of Dolo was the highest point outside of Venice, and second only to the tower of San Marco in the whole of the Veneto. Giovanni Antonio Canal, known colloquially as Canaletto (18th October 1697 - 19th April 1768) was an Italian painter and printmaker. Canaletto is celebrated as the master of Venetian vedute, being one of the most popular artists for British aristocrats on the Grand Tour. Canaletto's major inspiration were the Roman vedute and capricci of Giovanni Paolo Pannini. Although best known for his paintings, Canaletto also produced a number of etchings, including a series of 30 plates of Venice and its surrounds. The interest in Canaletto's work in Britain was great, spurred by the collections of various British nobles, and especially by George III, who amassed a significant number for the Royal Collection. As a result, prints of Canaletto's vedute were in high demand. Inscribed in bottom right corner of plate: 'F F 3' Third State, early impression of second printing. Bromberg 4 (iii/iii), De Vesme 4, P&G 4. Condition: Watermark 'R' surmounted by crown (Bromberg No. 10), near Palladian villa at left of image. Small tears, stains, and foxing to margins, not affecting image. Stain to left centre of image. Water stain and oxodisation of colouring to right of plate.

Containing a large Collection of Receipts for dressing all sorts of Kitchen Stuff … To which is Added, The Physical Virtues of every Herb and Root. Designed for the Use of all who would live Cheap, and preserve their Health to old Age; particularly for Farmers and Tradesmen in the Country, who have but small Pieces of Garden Ground, and are willing to make the most of it. Duodecimo (159 × 96 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked in sheep with red morocco label, edges sprinkled brown. Half-title present. A little rubbed, corners through, light browning, occasional spotting and mild staining, and one or two minor edge-splits, overall very good. First edition, uncommon with just 9 locations on Copac - "this book is quite rare" (Une Affaire A Goût). Sometimes attributed to Frances Hill. "This little Treatise of Kitchen-Gardening is chiefly design'd for the Instruction and Benefit of Country People, who most of them have a little Garden Spot belonging to their House, and at the same time let it lie useless, for want of the knowing how properly to manage it …" (The Introduction). Maclean notes that "although the majority of the receipts are vegetarian, some do use meat stock", and in fact some recipes do go further down the carnivorous route, "To farce Mushrooms" requiring a stuffing made with "Veal, Bacon, Beef Marrow, French Roll soaked in Cream and the Yolks of two Eggs". Guerrini characterises it as one of the "vegetable (although not necessarily vegetarian) cookbooks" that appeared in the mid-eighteenth century following the works of Dr. Cheyne and Antonio Cocchi in advocating a "vegetable diet as the secret to health" ("Diet for a Sensitive Soul: Vegetarianism in Eighteenth-Century Britain" in Eighteenth-Century Life, XXIII, 2, 1999, p.39). Strictly contemporary ownership inscription of E.Combe to the first blank, purchase note "E. 1:6" to the title page - confirming the price at 1s 6d, as per Maclean n.2 - together with the initials "M.G.".

        Cent fables en Latin et en François, choisies des anciens auteurs, mises en vers Latins ..., et traduites par Mr. Perrault, ... Avec de nouvelles figures en taille-douce. Nouvelle edition.London, C. Marsh & T. Payne, H. Slater, S. Baker, F. Noble, W. Bathoe, J. Palairet, 1744. 4to (26.5 x 20.5 cm). With richly designed, engraved frontispiece by Claude Du Bosc, and 99 (of 100) fine engraved illustrations to the fables on integral leaves (plate size about 9.5 x 10.5 cm). Early 19th-century half calf, for the Signet Library in Edinburgh, each board with the gold-tooled British Royal arms. Restored and with later 19th-century endpapers, but with the early 19th-century printed label with the shelf-mark transferred to the front paste-down.

      ESTC N26724; cf. Cicognara 1124; Cohen & De Ricci 371; Pierpont-Morgan, Early children's books 11; not in Fabula Docet. The 1744 issue of Du Bosc's important and luxurious 1743 edition of one hundred fables by Gabriello Faerno (1511-1561) in the original Latin verse (based mostly on Aesop, in part via Phaedrus) with parallel verse translations into French by Charles Perrault (1628-1703), best known as the author of the "Mother Goose" fairy tales, and with extensive additional material, including poems and letters by Faerno. Claude Du Bosc (1682-1746?), a French engraver who worked in England from 1712, signed the beautiful engraved frontispiece (Aesop talking to the animals) and almost certainly engraved the other illustrations and/or had them engraved by his assistants under his supervision. The present frontispiece and illustrations first appeared in the 1741, but the plates for the illustrations were revised or possibly even replaced (they now have wider borders) for Du Bosc's present 1743 edition. They bear no close relation to the illustrations in any Aesop, Phaedrus or Faerno edition before 1741 and form an original contribution to the illustration of these fables. Often the dark hatching of the backgrounds brings out the foreground With the 18th-century armorial bookplate of the Reverend Doctor Thomas Drummond. The Drummond arms is that of the Earls of Perth and Melfort. The illustration for fable 39 was accidentally omitted on page 91, which has a blank space where it should stand, and a crease made in the paper at the time of printing slightly affects the illustration for fable 63. There are also a few marginal stains in the first few leaves, not approaching the text, but the book is otherwise in very good condition and only slightly trimmed, giving very generous margins. The calf spine and corners had suffered from flaking but have been restored and are now sound. A luxurious edition of Faerno's 100 fables, combining all the textual additions of the excellent 1718 French edition with the original Latin and the new illustrations made by Claude Du Bosc in 1741.

Taf.VIII-IX.1* "Properties, effects and causes of electricity two new frictional machines, pp.10, 18 size of leather cushion, p.21 velocity of electric transmissions, p. 70 effect of magnet on electric sparks, p.63." Wheeler 2* "Chap. i., treats of the mutual effect of two electrified bodies chap. ii, of what occurs when a neutral body is brought near one that is electrified electrical nature of thunderstorm reference to von Kleist's discovery of the Leyden jar, p.43." Wheeler Plate No. VIII gives "The earliest illustration of the Leyden jar". B. Dibner, Early Elect. Machines, p.27 3* "The Leyden jar with experiments and theory the identity of lightning and machine electricity discussed, p. 137." WheelerTwo great innovations marked the development of the study of electricity in the early part of the fifth decade of the 18th century. While both of them were contributions to practice rather than to theory, they stimulated theory by providing a complex variety of new phenomena to challenge concepts that were inadequate. The improved "electrical machines", or electrostatic generators, and the condenser, or "Leyden Jar", made it possible to produce electrical effects on a far larger scale than had ever before been possible, thus affording the means for making wholly new types of experiments and also spectacular public demonstrations which drew considerable attention to the subject of electricity. These innovations came chiefly from Germany and Holland.Johann Heinrich Winkler (1703-1770), professor at the University of Leipzig was the first to report on Kleist's experiments in the second volume. He disclosed Kleist's " device as a means for storing and delivering a very powerful electric Shock. Winkler improved the Kleist Jar by winding a chain around the bottle, leading it to a metal plate and thence to the prime conductor of his multiple-globe generator. The shock resulting from this equipment caused him convulsions, blood-agitation, and fever. Winkler was the first to use a fixed cushion in the electric machine for applying friction instead of the hand, and by many is believed to have been the first to suggest the use of conductors as a means of protection against lightning."During the year 1746 Winckler made use of common electricity for telegraphic communications by the discharge of Leyden jars through very long circuits, in some of which the River Pleisse formed a part, and it may be added that Joseph Franz had previously discharged the contents of a jar through 1500 feet of iron wire while in the city of Vienna." P.F. Mottelay"Da jedoch nicht jeder Experimentator über die für die erfolgreiche Durchführung der Versuche unerläßliche trockene Hand verfügte, bedeutete die Einführung des Reibzeuges durch den Leipziger Drechsler Johann Friedrich Giessing einen erheblichen Fortschritt. Giessing hatte mehrfach für den Mechaniker Cotta gearbeitet und dabei auch die Hauksbeesche Kugel und ihre Wirkungsweise kennen gelernt. Er hatte über eine zweckmäßigere Ausgestaltung dieser Versuchsanordnung nachgedacht, und als sich nach Hausens Tode der Professor der griechischen und lateinischen Sprache, Johann Heinrich Winkler, wegen des Baues einer Elektrisiermaschine an ihn wandte, konnte er ihm an seiner Drechselbank alsbald ein improvisiertes Modell seiner neu erdachten Einrichtung vorführen. Die von Giessing im Anschluß an diese Besprechung für Winkler ausgeführte erste Elektrisiermaschine mit Reibzeug und walzenförmigem Glaskörper, an dessen Stelle auch - gemäß einem Vorschläge des Grafen von Manteufel - mit bestem Erfolge Porzellanbecher benutzt wurden, ist in den "Gedanken von den Eigenschaften, Wirkungen und Ursachen der Elektrizität nebst einer Beschreibung zwo neuer elektrischen Maschinen, herausgegeben von Johann Heinrich Winkler, Leipzig 1744" dargestellt und beschrieben und erspart durch ihren Tretantrieb auch den Gehilfen, der sonst das Drehen des Triebrades zu besorgen hatte. Wäre diesem Gerät noch der Bosesche Konduktor beigegeben, so könnten wir von einer in den Hauptzügen vollendeten Elektrisiermaschine sprechen. Deren Bau blieb aber dem englischen Physiker Watson Vorbehalten. Nach manchem soeben Gesagten könnte es scheinen, als habe Winkler in der Hauptsache fremde Anregungen aufgenommen und ausgebreitet. Das hieße ihm aber Unrecht tun, und auch was Goethe über ihn in seinen "Materialien zu Geschichte der Farbenlehre, Confession des Verfassers" sagt, wird der Bedeutung Winklers nicht gerecht, obwohl es dort sehr richtig heißt: "Winkler in Leipzig, einer der ersten, der sich um Elektrizität verdient machte, behandelte diese Abteilung sehr umständlich und mit Liebe, so daß mir die sämtlichen Versuche mit ihren Bedingungen fast noch jetzt durchaus gegenwärtig sind. Die Gestelle waren sämtlich blau angestrichen man brauchte ausschließlich blaue Seidenfäden zum Anknüpfen und Auf hängen der Teile des Apparates, welches mir auch immer wieder, wenn ich über blaue Farbe dachte, einfiel." Winkler hat in Deutschland der Lehre von der Elektrizität durch seine Vorführungen, Vorlesungen und Schriften zahlreiche Freunde geworben. Er hat sie aber auch selbst durch manchen Beitrag gefördert und beispielsweise gelehrt, wie man durch eine einfache Entladevorrichtung den Entladungsschlag der Verstärkungsflasche auslösen kann, ohne selbst unter seiner starken physiologischen Wirkung zu leiden. Von bleibendem Verdienste ist in der Lehre von der atmosphärischen Elektrizität die Durchdachtheit und Gründlichkeit mit der er noch vor dem Auftreten Franklins 1746 die Frage erörterte, "Ob Schlag und Funken der verstärkten Elektrizität für eine Art des Donners und Blitzes zu halten sind?" Den überzeugenden Beweis, von der Wertschätzung, deren sich seine Arbeiten auch außerhalb Deutschlands erfreuten, liefert aber unstreitig die Tatsache, daß mehrere Berichte von ihm in den Philosophical Transactions veröffentlicht wurden, und daß noch 1758 seine vorhin erwähnte Schrift über die Eigenschaften, Wirkungen und Ursachen der Elektrizität zugleich mit den wichtigsten Abhandlungen Watsons ins Französische übersetzt ward. Watson selbst verdankte ein gut Teil seiner Erfolge der in England seltenen Vertrautheit mit den Schriften der deutschen Elektriker Bose und Winkler, mit denen er auch in brieflichem Verkehr stand. Seine große Vierkugelmaschine baut ganz auf den Grundgedanken der beiden sächsischen Physiker auf, übernimmt von Bose den Konduktor, von Winkler das Reibzeug und den Gedanken, zur Erzeugung größerer Elektrizitätsmengen mehrere Kugeln in Parallelbetrieb arbeiten zu lassen. Wir finden in dieser Watsonschen Maschine die Hauptteile einer Elektrisiermaschine nunmehr vereinigt und vermissen eigentlich nur noch den Spitzenkamm."

        Quaedam Electricitatis recens observa exhibet Jo. Henricus Winkler (pp.307-314, 1 Taf.).

      Phil. Trans., 43 (No.475). - 1744/1745. - (London), Printed for C. Davis, ... Printer to the Royal Society, For the Months of Januar, Febr. and March, 1745, Kl.4, (2), pp.239-340, 2 Taf., feiner Halbledereinband. First Printing! Johann Heinrich Winckler (Winkler) (1703-1770), "a philosopher of Wingendorf, Saxony, and Professor of Languages in the University of Leipzig, first uses a fixed cushion in the electric machine for applying friction instead of by means of the hand, and is, by many, believed to have been the first to suggest the use of conductors as a means of protection against lightning (see B.C. 600). In March 1745, Winckler read a paper before the Royal Society, in which he describes machines for rubbing tubes and globes, also a contrivance with which he can give his globes, as many as 680 turns in a minute. Priestley states that the German electricians generally used several globes at a time and that they could excite such a prodigious power of electricity from " globes, whirled by a large wheel and rubbed with woollen cloth or a dry hand, that, if we may credit their own accounts, the blood could be drawn from the finger by an electric spark the skin would burst and a wound appear, as if made by a caustic." During the year 1746 Winckler made use of common electricity for telegraphic communications by the discharge of Leyden jars through very long circuits, in some of which the River Pleisse formed a part, and it may be added that Joseph Franz had previously discharged the contents of a jar through 1500 feet of iron wire while in the city of Vienna."

        Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire d'un genere de Polypes d'Eau Douce, à bras en forme de cornes.

      Leiden, J. & H. Verbeej, 1744, 4, XVI, 324 pp., 1 leaf "Avis au Relieur", illustrated with 4 large vignettes by J.v.Schley after C.Pronck, with 13 full page engraved plates by Piere Lyonnet, fine contemp. gold tooled half leather binding. BIRTH OF EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY FIRST EDITION on fine paper, fresh and crisp Abraham Trembley (1710-1784), Scientist, Philosopher and Pioneer of Experimental Zoology from Geneva, discovered the regenerative powers of the polyp and photosensitivity in an animal without eyes and he was the first to witness cell-division anddiscovered Hydra. Trembley was the first person to show that certain animals can be artificially multiplied by Division, the first to make permanent grafts on animal tissues, the first to prove by rigorous experiment that asexual reproduction by budding occurs in animals, and the first to witness cell-division: he also discovered the process by which Protozoa multiply. These are only a few of his contributions to biological knowledge. A large part of his research was concerned with the little fresh-water polyp, hydra, an animal of particular importance today because it is one of the standard "types" used all over the world in teaching elementary biology to students of science, medicine, and agriculture. At the time of publication, the immediate philosophical repercussions were even more startling, animal soul was clearly shown to be material. The heterogenetic origin of life seemed to be confirmed. Bonnet suggested that the polyp bridged the animal and vegetable kingdoms, nullifying their supposedly complete separation. Later he declared the polyp to be the key to the interpretation of nature.Baker, Abraham Trembley (the only full length account), pp. VIII ff. Forerunners of Darwin, 1959, pp. 116 ff.

        L'origine della giurisprudenza romana contro alla moderna opinione del signor d. Gio. Battista Vico. Opera isterica, critica, legale [..] dedicata all'illustrissimo signore il signor marchese d. Bernardo Tanucci.

      per Domenico Roselli, 1744. In-4° (cm. 22), legatura del tardo XIX secolo in m. pelle con titolo in oro sl dorso, tagli spruzzati, risguardi marmorizzati; pp. [18] 270 in buono stato, leggermente brunite e con qualche fioritura. Rara edizione originale di un'opera del primo critico del noto filosofo napoletano, il quale si risentì «in maniera che fu di ribrezzo e di orrore» vedendo «di malissima voglia che un garzone [..] si fusse con lui cimentato» [B. Croce. La filosofia di Giambattista Vico, Laterza 1922, p. 307]. Siccome Romano dedicava il saggio al Tanucci (come d'altronde aveva fatto con la sua precedente Difesa istorica delle leggi greche, Napoli 1736), la gente attribuì indirettamente al ministro un insostenibile antivichismo, della qual cosa lo stesso autore si dovette scusare [p. (3)]. Sebbene criticato, dal testo «il suo Vico è già un pensatore notissimo, circondato dalla fama e dalla protezione degli allievi» [F. Lomonaco, Tracce di Vico, Liguori 2005, p. 26]. Buon esemplare.
