        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 morocco, 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.

        AN ESSAY TOWARDS FIXING THE TRUE STANDARDS OF WIT, HUMOUR, RAILLERY, SATIRE, AND RIDICULE

      London: Printed for J. Roberts, and W. Bickerton, 1744. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 206 x 133 mm (8 1/8 x 5 1/4"). xxxiv, [2] (errata, ads), xxxii, 75, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sprinkled calf, covers bordered with double gilt fillet, raised bands flanked by gilt rules, original brown morocco label. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of "R E H D" engraved by and signed in the plate by G. W. Eve (see below). Joints, spine, and extremities a bit chafed and dried (though much of this successfully masked by refurbishing), covers a bit scratched and with three patches of lost patina from insect acitivity, one upper corner rather bumped, but the original unrestored rustic binding solid and pleasing, with no serious defect. One leaf with three-inch tear into the text (neatly repaired without loss of legibility, though with slight displacement of letters), otherwise only trivial imperfections internally, THE TEXT REMARKABLY FRESH AND CLEAN and printed within quite ample margins. This amusing attempt to differentiate between wit, humor, raillery, satire, and ridicule was written, surprisingly, by an economist and customs inspector. Morris begins by defining wit as "the Lustre resulting from the quick Elucidation of one Subject, by a just and unexpected Arrangement of it with another Subject." As an example, he cites an exchange between Henry IV of France and the Spanish ambassador. Boasting of the ease with which he could conquer Italy, Henry claimed that "once he mounted on Horseback, he should breakfast at Milan, and dine at Naples." The ambassador replied, "Since your Majesty travels at this rate, you may be at Vespers in Sicily"; while this remark seems to admire the rate of monarch's military conquests, it, in fact, refers to a disastrous earlier invasion of Sicily by France that ended with French soldiers being massacred while the bells rang for Vespers. Morris differentiates humor from wit, describing the former as "any remarkable Oddity or Foible belonging to a Person in real Life," and acknowledges it gives more delight and pleasure than wit. His example here is Falstaff, the embodiment of "Jollity, Mirth, and Good-nature." Our volume ends with a letter on humor in comedy by that master of the Restoration Comedy of Manners, William Congreve (1670-1729). Corbyn Morris (1710-79) had previously written a series of pamplets defending the policies of Prime Minister Robert Walpole, and the present work opens with a 34-page dedication to that politician which the normally forgiving DNB deems "extravagant . . . even by contemporary standards." Morris once told David Hume that he wrote "all his books for the sake of the Dedications," and these seemed to be successful instruments in advancing his career, as he was appointed secretary of customs and salt duty for Scotland before subsequently being appointed to the English board of customs. We have not been able to identify the "R E H D" who owned this volume, but he obviously cared about his library because Eve, who specialized in heraldic bookplates, was one of the foremost bookplate designers of the day.

        HUDIBRAS

      J. Bentham spelled Bettenham in volume II Cambridge: J. Bentham [spelled "Bettenham" in volume II], 1744. Hardcover. A Very Bright, Fresh Copy of the First Printing of the Best 18th Century Edition of "Hudibras". 203 x 133 mm (8 x 5 1/4").Two volumes. Edited and annotated by Zachary Grey. Recent dark brown half morocco over linen boards, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central fleuron, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With engraved frontispiece portrait of Butler after Soest, and 16 lively engraved plates after Hogarth, five of them folding. Title pages with early ownership inscription marked out with black ink; title of volume I with ink signature of Isaac Cookson. Lowndes I, 335. Isolated faint foxing, otherwise AN UNUSUALLY FINE COPY, the text extraordinarily fresh, clean, and bright, and the retrospective bindings unworn. This is a remarkably fresh and bright copy of the first printing of the major 18th century edition of "Hudibras," the version upon which most subsequent printings were based for many years, and simply "the best edition" according to Lowndes. Butler's mock epic in octosyllabic couplets was first published (in three installments) in 1663, 1664, and 1678. Modelled after "Don Quixote," the work satirizes the hypocrisy and self-seeking of the Presbyterians and Independents, represented by the title character and his squire Ralpho, whose humorous adventures provide ample opportunity to demonstrate their pedantry, greed, duplicity, and cowardice, as well as the ridiculous nature of their sectarian squabbles. Numbered among the relatively few illustrations Hogarth did for books, the engravings here were specially prepared for the 1726 edition of "Hudibras," and they were re-engraved for the present edition, resulting in especially rich impressions. Our early owner may well have been the Isaac Cookson (1705-54) who was a prominent gold- and silversmith in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where he ran a flourishing business with a specialty in ecclesiastical silver. His obituary in the "Newcastle Courant" on 24 August 1754 proclaimed him a paragon of commercial and personal virtue.

        A North-West View of Haddon &c. an Ancient Seat belonging to his Grace the Duke of Rutland

      25 October 1744. Engraving by Francis Vivares on laid paper, coloured by hand. (Early manuscript number '51' in upper right margin). 14 1/81/2 x 20 5/8 inches. 17 x 23 1/4 inches. A rare example from an artist who was the first to produce picturesque prints 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.... Smith published a second set of four Derbyshire views in 1745 [from which the present image is taken]' (T. Clayton The English Print, 1997, p.157). One of the earliest and most influential landscape engravers was Francois Vivares. Vivares was born in France and raised in Geneva, but at the age of eighteen established himself in London. He exhibited regularly with the Incorporated Society of Artists and was highly regarded for his meticulous technique and bold style. Vivares is considered the father of English landscape engraving, his fine work inspiring generations of English engravers. Like Smith of Derby, Vivares was instrumental in introducing the concept of the "picturesque landscape" into English art. His magnificent engravings captured the golden age of the English countryside, before it was forever changed by the factories and mills of the Industrial Revolution. . This Smith of Derby view is a good example of the artist's primary love. Though ostensibly a depiction of Haddon Hall, a 12th century castle, the manor itself is a small part of the rustic panorama: horses, sheep and cows at pasture, the rolling hills, the stone bridge over the Wye and the dramatic sky attract more attention.

      Valencenia, per Antonio Bordazar de Artazu, Impresso Academico, 1744. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 298 x 208 mms., pp. [xiv], xcvi, 279 [280 blank], including half-title, contemporary vellum; half-title partially detached at inner margin, binding a little soiled, but a good to very good copy, with "1288l. Mondyar" on the upper margin of the front paste-down end-paper, "Evelyn S Procter" on the top margin of the recto of the front free end-paper, and "Thomas Stainton/ April 21/ 1868" on the top margin of the title-page. This is a nice provenance: Evelyn Emma Stefanos Procter (1897–1980) was a distinguished scholar on Spanish medieval history. She was tutor in and later head of St. Hugh's Oxford. She collaborated with Betty Kemp on a history of St. Hugh's, but it was her earlier book, Alfonso X of Castile, Patron of Literature and Learning (1951), that defined her as a scholar. ODNB notes "She was an austere scholar and when Rachel Trickett, the English tutor at St Hugh's, published a novel and the libretto of Joubert's opera Antigone she commented, 'Let us have no more, Miss Trickett, in these lower forms'." The word "Eclipse" appears several times in pencil in the margins of pages xxvii - xxxi in what is almost certainly her hand. The scholar and historian Gaspar Ibáñez de Segovia Peralta and Mendoza , Marquis of Mondejar (1628 - 1708) had a vast library, with almost six thousand books at his disposal. His historical writing was anti-mythic and based on documents and primary sources. The work marks the first real attempt to base Spanish historical writing on these principles, and its commentary of the influence of non-Spaniards, notably Jews and medieval Muslims from the Middle East as well as Greeks and Romans, was the first of its kind in Spanish historical writing. A posthumous work, it is a tribute to the determination of the Academia Valenciana to recognize the quality of Mondejar's research.

Det gemensamma titelbladet i del I tryckt i rött och svart. Tre nötta samtida hfrbd med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerade ryggar, ljusbruna titeletiketter och röda snitt. De guldpräglade deltitelnumreringarna på särskilda titelfält under titeletiketterna. Ryggarna flammiga och skadade överst. Titeletiketterna till stor del bortnötta. Pärmpapprena utbytta under 1800-talets första hälft och för- och eftersättsblad saknas. Del I med en gammal anteckning på insidan av främre pärm och en del bläckkludd och dito fläckar på deltitelbladet. I stort sett rena inlagor med endast enstaka lager- och småfläckar, t.ex. på s. 11-12 i del I. En del marginalanteckningar. Några lagade revor i yttermarginalen på s. 507-11 i del II, som avslutas med pappersförtunning i yttermarginalen på sista bladet. Felskurna hörn på s. 861 i del II och s. 597 i del III.

Johannes Moller (1661-1725), litteraturhistoriker, föddes i Flensburg och ägnade fyrtio år av sitt liv att insamla allt material om sin hembygds och hertigdömena Slesvig och Holsteins litteraturhistoria, vilket resulterade i "Cimbria literata", som efter hans död gavs ut av hans son Olaus Henrik Moller. Förordet skrevs av Hans Gram. Med en utförlighet utan like och mängder av litterära hänvisningar behandlar Moller i tre parallella spår de författare som är födda eller har verkat, om än i kort tid, i området mellan Kongeaa och Elbe, i norr tar han även med Ribe och Kolding, i söder Hamburg och Lübeck. "Dansk biografiskt haandleksikon" skriver att "man skal vanskelig forgæves raadspørge denne bog om noget, bibliografiskt eller personalhistorisk, der ligger indenfor dens rammer." Carl Frederik Bricka (1845-1903), dansk riksarkivarie, var redan i sin ungdom en stor bokvän. När han bodde hemma hos föräldrarna var han tvungen att hyra ett extra förråd för att få plats för de 700 numren han köpt vid Allens auktion 1872. Hans boksamling omfattade så småningom över 8300 band

        Fabi Colvmnae Lyncei Hytobasanos, cui accessit Vita FabI et Lynceorum notitia adnotationesque in phytobasanon Iano Planco Ariminensi Auctore et In Senes Academia Anatomes Publico Professore

      Florentiae I. P. Aere, & Typis Petri Caietani Viviani...., 1744. FIRST EDITION. Large 4to, 290 x 210 mms., pp. [ii], lii, 134 [135 - 136 appendix], engraved vignette of lynx on title-page, 38 superbly engraved illustrations of plants at end, contemporary vellum, blocked in gilt on spine; no blank prelims, but a fine copy. The scientis Fabio Colonna (1567-1650) recognized that the study of leaves by themselves was not sufficient to discern or to classify them properly, especially with regard to those that could be used medicinally. An epileptic, he was drawn to the study of botany as means of finding herbs and concoctions from plants that could be used to ameliorate the symptoms and effects of epilepsy.

        The Shepherd of Banbury's Rules to Judge of the Changes of the Weather, Grounded on Forty Years Experience: To which is Added a Rational Account of the Causes of such Alterations, the Nature of the Wind, Rain, Snowâ?¦

      W. Bickerton 8vo, later cloth backed marbled boards, [2], viii, 64 pp. Binding worn, splitting at joins with some tears on the spine, normal aging, but internally very good. This work was first published in 1670 as "The Shepherd's Legacy." Although it is unsure who the shepherd of Branbury was, it is possible that it was John Claridge. The OCLC repeating from the introduction of G.H.T. Kimble indicates that in the 1946 edition, the author refers to himself as John in the original edition. It is believed that in the present edition, additions have been made anonymously by John Campbell (ESTC T12185). Claridge talks about the benefits of understanding the weather, and describes some of the tools that are used for that purpose in his introduction, including the value of observation. However, the main purpose of his work is to share the rules that help predict the weather, such as, small and round clouds will yield fair weather for two or three days, or the chance of rain when the Moon is new.

After Molanus' death, the collection passed to his disciple and nephew Justus Christoph Boehmer (1671-1732), who succeeded his uncle as abbot of Loccum.

        A complete map of the Southern Continent

      London,, 1744.. Original engraving, 410 x 520 mm.; in fine condition, mounted and framed. A fine copy of this famous version of the Tasman map, the first major English depiction of the Dutch discoveries in Australia and the first English map devoted to Australia.The image is based on the French version by Thevenot of 1663, which had originally appeared in his RÈlations de divers Voyages Curieux. This handsome version is by the English cartographer Bowen, and characteristically includes two 'legends' or short articles printed in the blank areas of the map. The uppermost passage describes Quiros's voyage and the other discusses the significance of the Australian continent with some prophetic accuracy: "It is impossible to conceive a Country that promises fairer from it's Scituation, than this of Terra Australis; no longer incognita, as this Map demonstrates, but the Southern Continent Discovered... Whoever perfectly discovers & settles it will become infalliably possessed of Territories as Rich, as fruitful, & as capable of Improvement as any that have been hither to found out...".Emanuel Bowen was engraver to George II of England and Louis XV of France. He worked in England from 1714 to 1767, and on his death his prolific mapmaking business passed to his son Thomas. He prepared this important map for the second edition of John Harris's voyage anthology Navigantium atque Itinerantium Bibliotheca - rare today - published in London between 1744 and 1748.

        A Map of the Discoveries Made by Captn. Willm. Dampier

      London,: John Harris, 1744.. Engraved chart measuring 245 x 410 mm. (sheet size), some browning yet very good. The fine Bowen map of William Dampier's discoveries along the Papuan coastline and adjacent islands.Dampier sailed in the Roebuck in January of 1699, landing in Shark Bay, Western Australia in July of that year, before going on to explore the Papuan coastline in some detail. This map charts the path of the Roebuck from Timor to the large islands to the northeast of New Guinea named New Britain by Dampier. The voyage of the Roebuck is one of the most significant expeditions to the region, but was disastrous for Dampier, especially after the vessel, rotten and leaking badly for much of the voyage, finally foundered at Ascension Island.This fine map was engraved by Emanuel Bowen (1694-1767), one of the pre-eminent English cartographic printers of his era and geographer to both King George II and Louis XV. Bowen drew upon a wide range of materials to ensure the accuracy of his work, attracting commissions from many of the leading hydrographers of the day. Widely respected for the skill, accuracy and beauty of his maps, 'Bowen's contribution to eighteenth-century world and British atlases was substantial' (ODNB). Bowen is famous for his map of the Southern Continent published by Harris in 1744, the same anthology from which the present map is taken.Bowen's work was characterised by its ornate rococo engraving and detailed engaging text passages that surrounded the cartographic detail. This map of Captain Dampier's discoveries is no exception, and features a section of lively text on the inhabitants of New Guinea and speculations of the wealth and wonders awaiting future explorers of the region. One section reads 'The inhabitants are generally speaking Blacks, but there is a Nation of Whites seated in one part of it whom some have suspected to be a remnant of the Ten Tribes of Israel, who were carried into captivity by the Assyrians...the inhabitants of the Moluccas are known to trade with the people of this Country for Gold and Spices which sufficiently demonstrates that it is well worth the discovering.'.

Enlarged second edition of this collection of verse in English and Latin. On pages 140-44 is the first printing of The Justiciary Garland, being the Form of Trial before a Criminal Court, the joint composition of James Boswell, Robert (later Lord) Cullen, John Maclaurin (Lord Dreghorn) and James Sinclair: see Pottle for further details. Other additional material includes A Song in Praise of Gowfing, Composed for the Blackheath Club, in the neighbourhood of London, and often sung with great spirit at the celebration of the Ludi Apollinares of Edinburgh, in ten verses of four lines. Andrew Duncan the Elder (1744-1828) was one of Scotland's finest medical men in his day; among his many achievements was the founding of the lunatic asylum in Edinburgh, having first conceived the idea upon hearing of the miserable death of the poet Fergusson. In 1808 the freedom of the city was conferred upon him for this service, and clinics at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital are named for him and other famous specialists (Rivers et al.). A man of very sociable instincts, he founded several clubs, among them the Aesculapian and Gymnastic Clubs named on the title-page of this verse collection, and many of Duncan's own poetical effusions were read or sung at their meetings. The latter society was founded in 1786, Dr. Duncan believing that his medical confrères were not taking sufficient exercise. The club enjoyed great popularity, holding an annual festival at Leith Golf House, where prizes were awarded in golfing, bowling and swimming. These sports are all given honourable mention in the preface, though golf is the only one of the three celebrated in verse.
