        An historical list of horse-matches run, and of plates and prizes run for in Great Britain and Ireland in 1744. Containing the names of the owners of the horses that have run as above, and the names and colours of the horses also. With the winner distinguished of every match, plate, prize, or stakes: the conditions of running, as to weight, age, &c. and the places in which the losing horses have come in. With a list also of the principal cock-matches of the year above, and who were the winners and losers of them, &c

      London: printed in the year MDCCXLIV [1744]. 12mo., lxii + 126pp., the first couple of leaves slightly chipped at head (not near printed surface), contemporary ruled calf, neatly rebacked to match, the spine having gilt lines, raised bands and red morocco label lettered gilt. A very good copy. Very rare. ESTC, OCLC & COPAC find copies at only BL + NLS + Bodleian. A comprehensive record of the year's racing results, being one of a series of annual volumes, all published by Cheny, 1729-1750. It would seem to have been an essential pocket reference work for race goers, owners and trainers, in addition, of course, to the race-going public. There is a long list of subscribers which inevitably includes a who's who of the great and the good (with no fewer than 21 Dukes!). The section on cock-fighting (pp. 76-90) includes the Rules and Orders for Cocking>, some 19 in all, in addition to match records. It was evidently an expensive business. 'Lancashire. At Warrington, on the thirtieth of May, and following days, the Gentlemen of Lancashire fought the Gentlemen of Yorkshire, shewing forty-one cocks on each side, for ten guineas a battle, and a hundred the Main. Which Main was one by Lancashire by one battle'.

        Explicatio tabularum anatomicarum Bartholomaei Eustachii, anatomici summi. Accedit Tabularum editio nova

      Leidae Batavorum: Apud Joannem Arnoldum Langerak & J. & H. Verbeek, . Excellent edition with some minor signs of external wear (the boards somewhat rubbed but with little effect to the condition). Spine and bookblock in stunning and firm condition. . Leidae Batavorum, Apud Joannem Arnoldum Langerak & J. & H. Verbeek, 1744. Folio. Pagination: Engraved titlepage, 28 pages of Preface (Praefatio), 277 (3) pages of text including "Privileg". Including 89 engraved plates (of which 50 are folded plates, 39 single page platess; 46 large outline + 8 (on 4 folded plates). Hardcover. Original half leather with gilt lettered spinelabel. Excellent edition with some minor signs of external wear (the boards somewhat rubbed but with little effect to the condition). Spine and bookblock in stunning and firm condition. Bartolomeo Eustachi (1500 or 1514 ?- 27 August 1574), also known by his Latin name of Eustachius, was one of the founders of the science of human anatomy. He came from San Severino, near Macerata, Italy, and was a contemporary of Vesalius, with whom he shares the reputation of having created the science of human anatomy. He is known as a supporter of Galen and extended the knowledge of the internal ear by rediscovering and describing correctly the tube that bears his name. He is the first who described the internal and anterior muscles of the malleus and the stapedius, and the complicated figure of the cochlea. He is the first who studied accurately the anatomy of the teeth, and the phenomena of the first and second dentition. Eustachius also discovered the adrenal glands (reported in 1563). His greatest work, which he was unable to publish, is his Anatomical Engravings. These were completed in 1552, nine years after Vesalius was published. First published in 1714 by Giovanni Maria Lancisi at the expense of Pope Clement XI, and again in 1744 by Cajetan Petrioli, and again in 1744 by Bernhard Siegfried Albinus, and subsequently at Bonn in 1790, the engravings show that Eustachius had dissected with the greatest care and diligence, and taken the utmost pains to give just views of the shape, size, and relative position of the organs of the human body. The fact that his book became a bestseller more than a century after his death shows the extent of the religious restrictions on anatomists all through the Renaissance. The first seven plates illustrate the history of the kidneys and some of the facts relating to the structure of the ear. The eighth represents the heart, the ramifications of the vena azygos, and the valve of the vena cava, named from the author. In the seven subsequent plates is given a succession of different views of the viscera of the chest and abdomen. The seventeenth contains the brain and spinal cord; and the eighteenth more accurate views of the origin, course, and distribution of the nerves than had been given before. Fourteen plates are devoted to the muscles. Eustachius did not confine his researches to the study of relative anatomy. He investigated the intimate structure of organs with assiduity and success. What was too minute for unassisted vision he inspected by means of glasses (early microscopes). Structure that could not be understood in the recent state he unfolded by maceration in different fluids, or rendered more distinct by injection and exsiccation. The facts illustrated by these figures are so important that it has been said that, if the author had been fortunate enough to publish them, anatomy would have attained the perfection of the 18th century at least two centuries earlier. Their seclusion for that period in the papal library has given celebrity to many names that would have been known only in the verification of the discoveries of Eustachius. (Wikipedia)

      [Madrid. 1744].. 6 leaves. Folio. Dbd. Contemporary manuscript annotations on top of first page and in margins of text. Old folds. Moderate dampstaining in top margins. A good copy. A rare printed decree by Philip V, King of Spain, regarding the reconstruction of the Casa de Moneda in Santiago following the earthquake that devastated that city in 1730. Detailed orders concerning the construction and operation of the Casa de Moneda and related matters regarding the processing of gold are also provided.

        La Secchia Rapita. Poema Eroicomico... -

      Modena, Soliani, 1744.In - 4. Legatura coeva in mezza pergamena, tassello con titolo impr. in oro sul dorso. Antiporta, ritratto a p. pag., 12 tavv. f.t. (una all'inizio di ogni canto), una tav. ripieg. con il Carroccio modenese, 2 carte geografiche ripieg. ed un facsimile ripieg., il tutto finemente inc. in rame, più una silografia f.t. con la Ghirlandina ed un albero genealogico ripieg. LX, 92, 489, (3) pp.; due fogli lievemente ingialliti, perlatro buon esemplare fresco e marginoso. L?opera fu pubblicata per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1622, ma solo nel 1700 fu stampata a Modena, in una maniera, peraltro, molto scorretta. ?L?infelice stampa? suscitò scontento nell?ambiente modenese del periodo poiché «era ben viva l?esigenza di un?edizione della Secchia che riunisse i pregi della correttezza fisiologica per un testo spesso sottoposto ad arbitrii e il decoro di una stampa che fosse anche un doveroso tributo di 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» (Puliatti, Tassoni, p.184 e nr. 128).

Methodus inveniendi lineas curvas maximi minimive proprietate gaudentes, sive solutio problematis isoperimetrici latissimo sensu accepti. 4to. [2], 322, [2]pp. 5 folding engraved plates. Lausanne & Geneva: Marc-Michel Bousquet & Compagnie, 1744. 248 x 199 mm. Half mottled calf, gilt spine, marbled boards c. 1744, rubbed, some wear at extremities and corners, bookplate removed from inside front cover. Minor foxing and toning, but very good. From the library of Pietro Riccardi (1828-98), historian and bibliographer of mathematics, with his library bookplate on the front endpaper.First Edition. With the publication of this work, the calculus of variations came into being as a new branch of mathematics. Euler was the first to formulate the principal problems of the calculus of variations and to create general methods for their solution. His work in the Methodus was cumbersome by modern standards (the calculus of variations as we know it is the work of Lagrange), but it yielded simple and elegant formulae applicable to a large variety of problems. He introduced (using different terminology) the concepts of function and variation, distinguished between problems of absolute and relative extrema, and deduced the differential equation that now bears his name.

Modena: Bartolommeo Soliani, 1744. |~| |~| |~| |~| |~| |~| Precious Copy Printed on Blue Paper. Most Important Edition of Tassoni's La Secchia Rapita , called by Gamba "stimmatissima edizione" and "belle édition" by Brunet. Two issues were evidently published in 1744, a quarto edition and an octavo edition. Rossi, in his bibliography of 17th-century Italian authors, states that a few copies of this quarto issue exist with the plates printed in blue ink; RLIN lists both issues, but does not mention any copy with the plates in blue, as here. This edition contains notes and a biography by two leading scholars of the eighteenth century, Gaspare Salviani and Lodovico Muratori. Tassoni (1565-1635) was a prolific author whose reputation rests mainly on the above satirical work, loosely translated as "the captured bucket" (in reference to the petty warfare between Modena and Bologna). "The poem is pervaded by an exuberant, satirical, and often brillaint humor... There are passages in which the humor is sustained and cumulative, and others in which an apparent seriousness finds its climate in a sudden hilarious absurdity" (Wilkins, Italian Literature , pp. 298-9). Fine copy; very rare on blue paper. PROVENANCE: Marco di Carrobio, with his bookplate. Rossi 3018. Gamba 2097. Brunet V, 675.

      South Afr. Bibl. I, p. 74; STCN (1 copy); Tiele Bibl. 42. Rare third, enlarged Dutch edition of accounts of Anson's ill-fated Pacific privateering voyage, first published in English in 1744. The objective of the expedition was to plunder the Spanish possessions along the Pacific coast of South America and to attack Panama. The expedition, fitted out with a squadron of five men-of-war and one sloop, rounded Cape Horn in March 1741, in the worst of seasons; only three ships reached the Jean Fernandez islands in June. Moreover, scurvy, cold and privation had killed a considerable number of the crewmembers of the reaming ships. Nevertheless, Anson took some small prizes before he decided to return home across the Pacific, his squadron now reduced to the two ships, Centurion and Gloucester. But before the ships could reach the Mariana Islands, the Gloucester was lost too. With one ship left, Anson was still determined to take a Manila galleon, which he finally did in June 1743, taking the Nuestra Señora de Covadonga, carrying 1,313,843 pieces of eight and 35,682 ounces of virgin silver.Owner's entry in blue ink on pastedown and library stamp on last page, both struck through. One plate with small tear, slightly browned throughout, one leaf with tear repaired, new free endleaf at front. Binding worn, front joint cracked, front board with a small hole, some restorations.

        Raccolta di Varie Favole delineate

      1744. FOSSATI, Giorgio. Raccolta di Varie Favole delineate, ed incise in Rame. Six volumes in two. [16], 44; [16], 48; [8], 76; [8], 59; [8], 59; [8], 36 pp. Title-pages in vol. I with engraved ornamental borders printed in red. Illustrated with 3 engraved headpieces and 216 engraved plates, printed in red, green, blue, brown and black. 4to., 295 x 205 mm, bound in full Venetian contemporary vellum boards. Venice: Carlo Pecora, 1744. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of one of the most sought-after Venetian eighteenth-century colour-printed works. The two hundred plus engravings are printed in the following colour inks: blue, olive green, sepia, madder rose, chocolate brown, yellow brown, Payne's grey, reddish brown, cadmium orange, black and blue-grey. This scarce Venetian edition of classical fables with coloured engravings was designed and executed by the architect Giorgio Fossati. Birds, beasts, plants and humans are placed in Venetian pastoral or architectural settings. The latter are especially noteworthy and reveal the practiced hand and eye of their author; in plate XXXIII ("The Gentleman and the Ape") the grand illusionistic stage setting recalls the work of the Bibiena. The Swiss-born Giorgio Fossati (1705-1785), designer of the facade of the Scuola and church of San Rocco in Venice, was an important promulgator of architectural history, theory, and practice through his many sumptuous publications, including new editions of Vignola, Palladio, and Félibien. Fossati specialized in books with illustrations printed in colour. The colour-technique he employed involved no overprinting or mixing, just pure colour printed on heavy white Italian paper giving his books an extravagant Venetian character. Copies of the Favole that were bound in six volumes sometimes manifest additional engraved title-pages preceding each volume of text; the present copy, like that of the Spencer Collection (NYPL) has the two engraved title-pages preceding vol. I. In our copy the allegorical explications of the fables in the first two volumes (8 + 8 pp.) are bound before their respective texts. Fine copies in contemporary Venetian bindings are very rare on the market. This is a fresh, fine and attractive copy in its contemporary Venetian binding. PROVENANCE: With later bookplate bearing a crossed monogram "L.L." surrounded in each corner by the emblem of medicine (a serpent entwining the staff of Asclepius). Cohen-Ricci 410. Lewine 192.

Its main merit is likely to have given birth not only epistolary novel (Rousseau) but Fielding gave two satirical suites: The Adventures of Joseph Andrews and Tom Jones. We know that Diderot raved about this novel. Pamela is a novel of manners and romance novel whose imprint on the literature of the eighteenth is permanent and indelible. It is often regarded as the first novel of manners bourgeois and this move places the action of the aristocracy to the bourgeoisie had an enormous impact.

H.Goerke, Die Beziehungen Japans zur europäischen Medizin im 18.Jhdt. J.Jap.Soc.Med.Hist. 20, (1974), p.418-388 - Johann Adam Kulmus (1689-1745) aus Breslau war Schüler von Herman Boerhaave (1668-1738) und des Anatomen Bernhard Albinus (1833-1721) in Leiden. Nach einer Studienreise durch Holland war er als Arzt in Danzig tätig und Professor für Medizin und Physik am Gymnasium in Danzig und hatte dort für seine Schüler und für Wundärzte die "Anatomischen Tabellen" verfaßt. - Durch holländische Seefahrer gelangte sein Werk auch nach Japan und wurde übersetzt und unter dem Titel "Kaitai shinsho" von R.Mayeno herausgegeben. Dieses Buch war der Grundstein westlicher Medizin in Japan. - - Foundation of western Medicine in Japan! - The rare Latin edition printed in Amsterdam of "Die Anatomische Tabellen". The Compendium became very well known and wide-spread, and it was the first anatomical compendium of modern medicine (v. Goecke). The first edition is extremely rare, since it was only designed for the use of Kulmus' students. - The "Anatomische Tabellen" were even translated into Japanese. After the Japanese physicians MAYENO RYOTAKU (1723-1804), GENPAKU SUGITA (1733-1817), and JUN'AN NAKAGAWA (1739-1786) had convinced themselves the 4th of March 1771 in Kotsukappara, near Edo, by the dissection of an executed, about 50 years old Japanese woman, Aocha-Baba (Mother Green Tea), that those "Tabellen" presented the true anatomical relations, thus demonstrated that anatomy as it had been taught in Japan up to that time was false. - "The book in no way differed from what we saw before us. If we could translate parts of this Taheru Anatomia we could gain a clear understanding entirely and advance medicine beyond its present level." Genpaku Sugita, Rangaku katohajime (1815). - So Kaitai Shinsho (New Book on Human Dissections) was the first complete translation of a medical work which originated on a German text. It represented an empirical approach to nature, which was undermining the prestige of Chinese medicine in Japan. It took about 4 years and eleven attempts to translate it, and was edited by GENPAKU SUGITA in 1774. The translator MAYENO RYOTAKU didn't sign it because of his extreme modesty. - -cf. Hirsch-H.

L'Opera è a cura dell'abate Giuseppe Toaldo (Marostica, 1719 - 1798), docente di astronomia nell'ateneo patavino. La stampa fu resa possibile dalla autorizzazione concessa da Papa Benedetto XIV. Straordinaria "summa" del pensiero galileiano, assai rara da trovare completa ed in condizioni più che buone.

        An Introduction to the Study of Philosophy: Exhibiting a General view of all the Arts and Sciences, for the use of pupils. With a Catalogue of some of the most valuable authors, necessary to be read, in order to instruct them in a thorough Knowledge of each of them

      London: J. Rivington. This is the original edition bound in late 19th century boards. . London, J. Rivington, 1744. 8°. VI, 26 pages. This is the original edition bound in late 19th century boards. The Reverend Doctor Samuel Johnson (October 14, 1696 ?- January 6, 1772) was a clergyman, educator, and philosopher in colonial British North America. He was a major proponent of both Anglicanism and the philosophy of George Berkeley in the colonies, and served as the first president of the Anglican King's College (the predecessor to today's Columbia University). Born in Guilford, Connecticut, he graduated from the Collegiate School (now Yale University) in 1716. Johnson first became Congregationalist minister of a church in West Haven, but influenced by the writings of John Locke and Isaac Newton, he and a group of other Collegiate School graduates began to express doubt in the legitimacy of their Congregational ordination. As a result, Johnson left the colony in order to seek ordination in the Church of England. Upon his return to Connecticut, he opened the first Anglican church in the colony at Stratford in 1724 and strenuously polemicized, under the auspices of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, against both the Congregationalists of New England and the new evangelical outburst occasioned by popular preacher George Whitefield and the Great Awakening he unleashed. He remained in Stratford until 1754, when the vestrymen of the Anglican Trinity Church in New York City considered him the logical choice to serve as after the first president of King's College. Though reluctant to leave his family in Connecticut and fearing the smallpox epidemics he considered endemic of urban life, Johnson ultimately took up the post, assisting in behind-the-scenes maneuverings to ensure the college would be explicitly Anglican, rather than nonsectarian. In the early years of the institution, Johnson was the sole instructor, primarily teaching classics and philosophy. His first class consisted of eight boys he considered "woefully unprepared". Owing to his fear of smallpox, of which his son William had died while in England, Johnson was frequently absent from the city, and increasingly shared his teaching responsibilities. When his wife died of smallpox, Johnson began to seek a means to leave his post, although the Governors of King's College and the Archbishop of Canterbury had already maneuvered to replace him with the Oxford-trained minister Myles Cooper. Johnson left the post in 1763 and returned to his ministry at Stratford, where he died. Johnson was the father of William Samuel Johnson, a Founding Father of the United States who attended the United States Constitutional Convention. He followed his father's footsteps, attending Yale and becoming president of Columbia College. Johnson was among the few colonial Americans whose cultural and intellectual achievements garnered notice in Great Britain. He was a friend of and often corresponded with the Irish philosopher George Berkeley, and became the chief promoter of his philosophy of immaterialism in colonial America. In 1731 Johnson published his Elementa Philosophica (eng. Compendium of Logic and Metaphysics), and in 1746 his Ethica (eng. System of Morality). In 1752, Benjamin Franklin printed both in a single, expanded volume, a third edition of which appeared in 1754 with Johnson's corrections and an introduction by Dr. William Smith, provost of the College of Philadelphia. In 1757 a London publisher printed his English and Hebrew Grammar, to which was appended a "Synopsis of all the Parts of Learning". (Wikipedia)
