        Methodus invenieni Lineas Curvas

      Lausanne & Geneva, 1744. Euler, Leonhard (1707-1783). 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. This copy is from the library of Pietro Riccardi, author of Biblioteca matematica italiana (1870-93). Horblit, One Hundred Books Famous in Science, 28. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 111. Norman 731. Kline, Mathematical Thought, pp. 377-79. Struik, Source Book in Mathematics, pp. 399-406.

        La Secchia Rapita

      1744. TASSONI, Alessandro. La Secchia Rapita, poema eroicomico... lx, 92, 489 pp., 1 f. (errata). With an engraved allegorical frontispiece by Zucchi after Villani, title-page in red and black, title vignette by Lepedi after Manfredi, engraved portrait by Lepidi after Bonvicini, 12 full-page plates, folding genealogical table of the Tassoni family, 2 facsimiles of Tassoni's handwriting, 2 folding maps, 10 engraved tailpieces, final leaf with woodcut of the "Tower of the City of Modena." 4to., 267 x 203 mm, bound in contemporary Italian vellum. 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. Tiraboschi V, 204 "Edizione per ogni riguardo magnifica e da anteporsi a tutte le altre annoverate finora."

      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.

      New edition, illustrated with 32 figures by Punt and title vignette repeated on 4 volumes. Title pages in red and black. First edition, it seems, has to be fully illustrated, previous editions showed only four headpieces, however it should be noted that the figures are dated 1742 The mention of third edition refers only Dutch editions is therefore not significant. Translation of the Abbe Prevost and Aubert de la Chesnaye Hood.Full Sheepskin brown vintage. Back tooled raised. Part of title and volume number in red morocco. Head cover of Volume I pulled out. Lack head of Volume II. Lack the upper jaw tail of Volume I. Headgear tail missing part to Volume III. Corners bumped. Friction. Pearses foxing.Pamela was a real twist in the world of literature and was a resounding success all over Europe. 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.

Seltene lateinische Ausgabe der "Anatomischen Tabellen" des bekanntesten Kompendium der Anatomie des 18.Jhdts. - Dieses Werk "stellte den ersten erfolgreichen Versuch dar, den Wissensstoff der Anatomie, der in den vergangenen zwei Jahrhunderten seit dem Erscheinen des Buches von Andreas Vesals "De corporis humani fabrica" im Jahre 1543 gewaltig angewachsen war, in übersichtlicher und leicht lernbarer Form zusammenzufassen und mit Bildern zu erläutern." 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.

        OPERE DI GALILEO GALILEI DIVISE IN QUATTRO TOMI. In questa nuova Edizione accresciute di molte cose inedite. In Padova, Nella Stamperia del Seminario, Appresso Gio. Manfré, 1744.

      Opera completa in quattro volumi. Cm.24,6x17,8. Pg.(8), LXXXVIII, (4), 602; (4), 564; (4), 486; (8), 344. Sobrie legature in mz.pergamena con titoli e fregi impressi in oro ai dorsi. Piatti e fogli di guardia decorati, tagli spruzzati. All'antiporta del primo volume bel ritratto di Galileo inciso in ovale da F. Zucchi. Marche tipografiche ai frontespizi (quello del primo volume in rosso e nero) raffiguranti una fenice con il motto "Post fata resurgo". Cartigli, testatine, finalini e capilettera incisi. Numerose incisioni geometriche e tecniche nel testo. Al primo volume una tavola in grande formato raffigurante il "Compasso geometrico e militare". Eccellente esemplare, solo lievi tarlature ai dorsi. Il primo volume comprende una "Vita di Galilei", "le Operazioni del Compasso geometrico, e militare"; la "Difesa di Galileo contro alle calunnie e imposture di Baldassar Capra milanese", il "Discorso intorno alle cose, che stanno in su l'Acqua, o che in quella si muovono", "Della scienza meccanica", "La Bilancetta", il "Trattato del modo di misurar colla vista". Il secondo volume contiene il "Sidereus Nuncius", la "Istoria e dimostrazioni intorno alle macchie solari", "Il Saggiatore", il "Trattato della Sfera, o Cosmografia", oltre ad alcune lettere di Galileo a Leopoldo di Toscana, a Cristoforo Griemberger, a Monsignor Dini, a Pietro Bardi e a Paolo Gualdo. Nel terzo volume compaiono i "Dialoghi delle Scienze Nuove", le "Considerazioni sopra il Gioco de' Dadi", e lettere, tra gli altri, al padre Castelli e a Curzio Picchena. Nel quarto volume, infine, il "Dialogo dei massimi sistemi", la "Sententia Cardinalium in Galileum et abjuratio ejusdem, excerptae", e la "Dissertazione sovra il sistema del mondo degli antichi Ebrei", di Agostino Calmet. Si tratta della terza edizione delle opere complete di Galilei (le precedenti erano del 1655 e del 1718), ma la prima comprendente il "Dialogo dei massimi sistemi", l'opera che, dapprima approvata dalla Chiesa, condusse poi Galileo all'abiura dinnanzi al Tribunale dell'Inquisizione, e che non fu rimossa dall'"Index Librorum Prohibitorum" fino al 1835. 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.

        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)

Newton's "Opuscula Mathematica [.]" covers many different treatises by Isaac Newton, from his mathematical works and optical lectures, which were greatly influential and laid the basis for modern science, to his philological essays on history and theology. Thus the work presents several of his most influential texts. The three volumes of "Opuscula Mathematica" are part of a hybrid set of in all 8 volumes of the first collected works of Isaac Newton. The hybrid set was published between 1739-1761 and also consists of "Geneva Principia" , 3 vols. (1739-42), "Opticks" (1740) and "Arithmatica Universalis" (1761), but the three volumes of "Opuscula Mathematica" are usually found separate. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        STATUTUM ET ORDINES VEN. COLLEGII DD. RATIONATORUM MEDIOLANI.

      per Joseph Richinum Malatestam 1744 In - 16 gr. (mm. 194x115), mz. pelle coeva, dorso a cordoni con fregi e tit. oro, pp. 40, ornato da testate, finali e una grande iniziale inc. su legno. La data sul frontespizio - Mediolani, 1744, per J. Richinum Malatestam - corrisponde alla prima ediz. del primo statuto del Collegio dei Ragionieri di Milano, pubblicato in 35 capitoli con in fine un tariffario delle prestazioni (suddivise in materiali operazioni e operazioni intellettuali) i.e. ?Taxa pro mercede DD. Rationatoribus tam collegiatis quam non collegiatis.. juxta sententiam Senatus.. diei 18 e 27 Septembris 1742?. La prima ediz., dedicata all??Exc. Senatui Mediolanensi?, è di pp. 30. Il ns. esempl., pur con il frontesp. datato 1744 è di pp. 40 e contiene: fino a p. 26 la dedica e i 35 capitoli degli Statuti - da p. 27 a p. 36 un decreto del 2 aprile 1759 ed un senato - consulto del 18 luglio 1760, e da p. 37 alla fine la ?Taxa pro mercede..?. Come precisa Morandi ?Formare alle professioni? (F. Angeli, 2013), pp. 125 - 126: ?Gli statuti del nuovo Collegio furono approvati dal Senato il 18 settembre 1742.. l?importanza e la rappresentatività del Collegio risultavano tuttavia di molto indeboliti dal mancato riconoscimento del pieno controllo su coloro che avessero voluto esercitare la professione. Nel 1759 i ragionati si rivolsero perciò nuovamente al Senato di Milano per chiedere che tale situazione fosse sanata.. stabilendo che nessuno potesse esercitare pubblicamente la professione di calcolatore, se non avesse provato al Collegio la propria idoneità.. L?istanza dei ragionati fu accolta anzitutto dal Senato che, con senato - consulto del 18 luglio 1760, disponeva appunto che nessuno potesse ricoprire ufficio pubblico di ragionato o potesse intervenire in giudizio se non fosse stato prima approvato dal Collegio.. (fatta salva tuttavia la facoltà per ciascuno di servirsi di qualunque ragionato anche non collegiato nè appovato per le ?private occorrenze?). La volontà del Senato fu ribadita, su nuova istanza dei ragionati, dal Governo austriaco con editto emanato il 20 febbraio 1767.. L?avvento della dominazione napoleonica, nel 1796, sancì la fine del funzionamento del Collegio. Il ns. esempl., per quanto riguarda lo statuto, è identico a quello posseduto dalla Braidense che porta la data 1744 (è in - 4, a grandi margini, ed ha 30,(2) pp.). Cfr. Cat. Hoepli, 937 - Predari, p. 296 cita un?ediz. del 1764 - Luchini ?Storia della Ragioneria Italiana? (Milano, 1898), pp. 74 - 76. Esempl. molto ben conservato, di grande rarità.

      London: Printed by J. Robinson, 1744. - [2],ii,211pp. plus folding engraved map "A New Map of Part of North America." Quarto. Handsome 20th-century panelled calf, elaborately gilt spine, leather label, raised bands. Fold lines of map expertly backed with tissue, with some small areas of unobtrusive paper repair. Titlepage with short horizontal tear to the outer margin, not affecting text. A few short marginal tears to text, with one repaired tear at F2. Overall, a very good copy. A large paper copy of this important attack on the Hudson's Bay Company monopoly in the Americas, with a valuable early account of the search for a northwest passage. Dobbs, later colonial governor of North Carolina, was an active opponent of the monopoly of the Hudson's Bay Company, pointing out that if they did not alter their policies, the French would quickly occupy the central plains to the west of their traditional areas of influence (as, in fact, they did). This and other works on a similar theme by Dobbs led to the investigation of the monopoly by a British Parliamentary committee in 1749. Dobbs never saw the Bay, and his information was largely based on French publications and Canadian sources, particularly that of Métis trader Joseph La France. According to Peter C. Newman, the account of La France's exploits is this work's "most valuable historical contribution" (EMPIRE OF THE SUN, [2000], p.213). The second main thrust of Dobbs' narrative concerns his advocacy of the necessity of searching for a northwest passage: he gives an account of the early exploration of the area, and of the opportunities that further exploration would offer. In addition, he fires the opening broadside in his attack on Christopher Middleton for his leadership of the 1741-42 expedition in search of a northwest passage. This controversy, played out in print, lasted for more than three years. FIELD 433. HOWES D373, "b." KERSHAW 422. LANDE 1144. NMM 796. PEEL 8. SABIN 20404. TPL 193. STREETER SALE 3637.

      Venetiis, Ex Typographia Balleoniana, 1744Full Book Title: Breviarium Monasticum Pauli V. ac Urbani VIII. Summorum Pontificium auctoritate recognitum, pro omnibus sub regula SS.mi P. Benedicti militantibus, in quo sunt omni studio disposita Officia Sanctorum, ut nihil amplius desiderandum supersit.In quattuor Anni Tempora divisum. In 4 volumes A Benedictine breviary, each of its four volumes being devoted to one season of the Church's liturgical year. Each volume in full maroon calf, richly stamped in gilt, in the ornate design known as `fan' design. The spines are raised in compartments, decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers; two of the volumes have two ornate brass clasps each, and two have one each. All the edges are gilt. Printed in red and black, with engraved plates. Both text and bindings in very good condition The binding seems contemporary with publication.However there are a number of pages from a later date inserted into the text, e.g. a 24 page revision of 1863 for the Feast on 8 December of the Immaculate Conception.It seems likely/possible that the four volumes were disbound at that time and rebound in the same bindings with the revised texts inserted.One of the insertions is dated 1751, so that it seems likely that the first binding was not done till then.Also interleaved throughout the text are a number of small engraved sheets, containing images of saints and prayers (i.e. in modern parlance, 'holy cards').The text on some of these is Portuguese and on one it is German.Hence the book was a working breviary and very likely used outside Italy, its country of origin. Quantity Available: 1. Category: RELIGION BINDING; Inventory No: 220999.

F7 a cancel," but does not mention that this is the first appearance of the poem, "A True Tale," addressed to Mr. Leake, i. e., James Leake, the brother-in-law of the printer Samuel Richardson who printed editions two to seven. "A True Tale" appears here as a result of a proposal of marriage that Mrs. Chandler received in 1741 when she was 54.
