        Planiglobii Terrestris Mappemonde

      Nuremberg 1746 - Homann Heirs; Planiglobii Terrestris Mappemonde; Nuremberg: 1746; Hand-colored copperplate engraving; 27 ½" x 31" framed Born in Kammlach in 1663, John Baptista Homann (1663-1724) was the founder of a family firm that became a virtual cartographic dynasty, dominating the German and international map market for a century. Homann founded his firm in 1702, and produced his first atlas in 1704. His legacy extended beyond his years, however, as his atlases continued to be published for thirty years following his death, and his descendants, under the name “Homann Heirs,”" continued to produce maps and atlases long after that. Along with Matthias Seutter, Homann was largely responsible for the German resurgence in the field of cartography, which had so long been dominated by Dutch firms centered in Amsterdam. Homann made his way not merely as an engraver and mapseller, but also served as the geographer to the Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire beginning in 1715. He received commissions as an engraver from David Funck, and also lent his skill to such notables as Jacob von Sandrart and Heinrich Scherer for their publications. For his strides in cartography, Homann was eventually honored with membership in the Prussian Royal Academy of Science. This is an important map by one of the most significant eighteenth-century German mapmakers.

        Institutions Astronomiques ou Leçons Elémentaires d'Astronomie

      Hippolyte-Louis Guérin & Jacques Guérin 1746 - On attribue à Lemonnier la traduction du latin de Keill, mais cette édition française est si largement augmentée et tant différente de celle d'outre-Manche qu'on la considère comme originale. L'ouvrage est très complet sur son sujet, l'astronomie, et son format en épais in-quarto autorise la mise en page claire de tableaux complexes et la possibilité d'une illustration sur grandes planches dépliantes qui donnent à voir nombre de détails grâce à la finesse de la gravure. Les cartes du ciel, les surfaces lunaires sont particulièrement belles et illustrent l'avancée spectaculaire des observations astronomiques en cette première moitié du XVIIIe siècle. Ainsi, on y voit près du pôle la constellation du Renne, que Lemonnier avait formée au retour de son expédition d'observation en Suède. Après une première partie consacrée à l'histoire de l'astronomie, Lemonnier entre dans le vif des débats passionnés sur cette science en bouleversement. N'ayant lui-même aucune confiance dans les grands gnomons, il monta lui même en 1744 une lunette d'observation sur l'église de Saint-Sulpice avec une lentille de 80 pieds de foyer. Cet objectif de trois pouces de diamètre fut parfaitement centré, ce qui fait que tous les rayons qu'il recevait étaient réunis avec une grande exactitude sur un marbre que l'on découvrait au moment de l'observation. Ainsi, il put observer une inégalité dans le moyen mouvement de Saturne, et pense que cette inégalité dépend de Jupiter. Au chapitre VIII, il donne une explication de l'aberration d'après Bradley. Dans les chapitres IX et X, il a inséré des copies des cartes de la Lune d'Hévélius et de Riccioli, et une troisième carte tirée des Mémoires de l'Académie. Une autre contribution importante de Lemonnier est la publication des tables du soleil et de la lune (un travail inédit de Flamsteed). Plus loin, il corrige avec bonheur Newton et diminue de 28" la parallaxe moyenne de Newton, la réduisant à 57' 2''. Au chapitre XIV sur les éclipses, on trouve un mémoire inédit de Picard (1677). C'est une manière de déterminer le nœud et l'inclinaison de Mercure, d'après un passage sur le disque du Soleil, dans lequel on aurait observé la rentrée et la sortie. On peut ainsi déterminer toutes les circonstances d'un passage qu'on voudrait annoncer. À l'article des satellites, on découvre encore quelques détails ajoutés sur le mouvement de la lumière. On trouve ensuite une table des mouvements moyens du satellite de Huygens, et des tables du premier satellite de Jupiter, d'après Pound. A la fin du chapitre, Lemonnier recommande l'idée de Halley, qui était d'observer la lune pendant une période entière de 18 ans, afin de corriger les erreurs et prédire les phénomènes. Au chapitre des comètes, Lemonnier ajoute quelques pages sur la comète de 1744. Il donne une idée de sa manière indirecte pour déterminer l'orbite, et renvoie à la traduction qu'il avait donnée du livre de Halley. Le chapitre finit par une carte sur laquelle sont dessinées toutes les orbites connues. Au chapitre XIX, après quelques mots sur le réticule triangulaire de Dradley, garni d'une vis, qui sert à lui donner l'inclinaison convenable, il donne les ascensions droites et les déclinaisons des 18 principales étoiles déterminées par lui. A propos des crépuscules, il calcule que la hauteur de l'atmosphère, qui est assez dense pour réfléchir les rayons du Soleil, doit être de 15 lieues et demi. Au chapitre des réfractions, il ajoute les tables de Bouguer et de Newton. Notre exemplaire est relié plein cuir, dos à nerfs, caissons ornés, pièce de titre doré, gardes jaspées, tranches marbrées, signet, 25.35 x 20 cm, t., 3 ff. n.c., lxiv., 660 pp., 15 pl. h.t.

        Idea de una Nueva Historia General de la Am?rica Septentrional. Fundada sobre material copioso de figuras, Symbols, Caracteres, Geroglifcos, Cantares, y Manuscritos de Autores Indios, ultimamente descubiertos

      Madrid: En la Imprenta de Juan de Zuniga, 1746 [xxxvi]+167+[viii]+96 pages. Octavo (8 1/4" x 6 1/4") bound in full leather with decorative gilt and lettering to spine. From the library of George M Foster. 1st edition.Lorenzo Boturini Benaducci, born in Italy of noble parentage, studied in Milan and lived in Trieste and Vienna. He was a knight of the Holy Roman Empire. Forced to flee Austria because of the war with Spain, Boturini arrived in Spain via England and Portugal. In Madrid he met the Condesa de Santibáñez, oldest daughter of the Condesa de Moctezuma. The mother authorized him to collect a pension due her, as a descendant of the Aztec Emperor Moctezuma II, from the royal treasury in New Spain. Boturini went to New Spain in 1736, where he remained eight years. During those years he assembled a vast collection of paintings, maps, manuscripts and native codices. He copied more than 500 pre-Columbian inscriptions and made his own drawings of monuments and sculptures, and he investigated the history of the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe on the hill of Tepeyac. He traveled widely and on his travels brought together the largest collection of Mexican antiquities assembled to that time by a European. Not only did he intend to write the history of the Virgin of Guadalupe, but he also had plans to crown her image with a gold crown. For that purpose he sought donations from the bishops and from the public. This brought him to the attention of the colonial government, which was suspicious of the motives of a foreigner making this proposal. On June 2, 1743 after an investigation, the recently arrived viceroy, Pedro Cebrián y Agustín, had him imprisoned and impounded his collection. He was accused of entering New Spain without license from the Council of the Indies and of introducing papal documents without a royal permit. After eight months in prison, Boturini was sent to Spain. He fell into the hands of pirates, who eventually released him at Gibraltar. From there he traveled to Madrid, in miserable conditions. In Madrid he met Mariano Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia, another passionate collector of Indian antiquities. Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia offered Boturini a place to live and financial support, and got the Council of the Indies to reconsider his case. Boturini was absolved. The king named him royal chronicler of the Indies, ordered that his collection be returned to him, and extended an invitation for him to return to New Spain. Boturini, however, declined to return to New Spain, and his collection was never restored. It appears that he was granted recompense and a stipend to work on his projected history of the colony. In Madrid he wrote a history of ancient Mexico, unpublished at the time of his death in 1753. The library at the Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe is named for him. The Boturini Collection was formed between 1735 and 1743, to serve as the basis of a projected Historia de América Septentrional. It consisted of many valuable documents, the majority of them of Indian provenance. Among these were hieroglyphic paintings that had belonged to Juan de Alva Ixtlilxochitl, a descendant of the rulers of Texcoco. Ixtlilxotchitl bequeathed these documents to Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora. The collection was confiscated by Viceroy Pedro Cebrián y Agustín at the time of Boturini's arrest in 1743. It was deposited in the office of the secretary of the viceroyalty. The documents were neglected there for years and suffered considerable pilferage. The subsequent viceroy, Juan Francisco de Güemes, 1st Count of Revillagigedo, granted the historian and antiquary Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia (Boturini's friend from Madrid) the paintings and documents he solicited for his own studies. On Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia's death, they passed to Antonio de León y Gama. He died in 1802, and the collection passed to his heirs. Shortly thereafter, 16 paintings were obtained by Alexander von Humboldt during his visit to Mexico in 1802-03. He published them in Vues des cordillères et monuments des peuples indigènes d'Amérique. The originals of these are now in the Berlin State Library. Part of the remainder of the collection may have passed to Father José Pichardo, an amateur antiquarian. Joseph Alexis Aubin, beginning in 1827 or shortly thereafter, obtained important parts of the collection from a variety of sources. He sold his collection to Eugène Goupil, who was of French and Mexican descent. This part of the collection passed by donation or purchase to the National Library in Paris, where it remains, under the name Aubin-Goupil Collection.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Lacks Foster's stamp or date of purchase. some damp stains to end papers, neat old marginalia in Spanish to back end paper, worm hole ant head and heal of spine going through spine, extremities bumped and rubbed, old owner's label to front paste down, 1" chip at back head hinge, and name to front end paper, scuffed else a good copy of a rare item.

        Philosophia Magni Aurelia Augustini ab Aegidio Columna Romano interpretata a Patre Nicolao Gavardi in Romana sapienta Magistro dilucidata . praelecta vero a Fratre Feliciano Ullmann Eremita Augustiniano.

      Bohemia 1746 - manuscript in ink on paper in a neat cursive hand, with five diagrams in the text, ff. 270, 4to, contemporary mottled calf, spine richly gilt, red edges, a little worn but still very good Written by Felicianus Ullmann, a monk in the order of Augustinian Hermits, this manuscript is an adaptation of Nicolo Gavardi’s course of philosopy based on the writings of Aegidius of Colonna (c.1245-1316), ‘Doctor fundatissimus’. A pupil of Thomas Aquinas, he became Prior General of the Augustinian Order, whose monks were required to study his writings. In the seventeenth century Nicolo Gavardi (1640-1715) wrote a course of philosophy, including the basics of astronomy and physics, based on the work of Aegidius, and this was used, as exemplified here, by the Augustinian Hermits. This copy is dedicated to the Bohemian nobleman Vinzenz Ferrerius von Waldstein-Wartenberg. Three of the diagrams illustrate the planetary systems of Ptolemy, Tycho, and Copernicus, and another is a Porphyrian Tree. The text is prefaced by a history of the Waldstein family.

        A Letter to Martin Folkes, Esq; President of the Royal Society, Concerning the Rise and Progress of Astronomy amongst the Antients

      London: Jacob Ilive, 1746 - George Costard (1710-1782) was educated at Wadham College, Oxford, where he became fellow and tutor. One of the earliest writers on the history of astronomy, his "Letter to Martin Folkes" was the first fruit of the research which eventually led to the publication in 1769 of his magnum opus on the history of astornomy. It was Costard's contention that accurate astronomy was a product of Greek genius, beginning with Thales, and owed little to either Egypt or Babylon. The present work is still worth consulting for the frequent references to and citations from the lesser-known Greek authors, as well as Hebrew and Arabic sources. The present copy has an interesting and varied provenance: in 1746 it was presented by the author ("Donum Auctoris") to Jacob Edgcumbe [sic] of Exeter College - possibly a scion of the Devon/Cornwall family headed by the Earl of Mount-Edgcumbe. In 1778 the book was bought for 2 shillings by the Rev. Philip Wren (1755-1829), of University College, Oxford, and the great grandson of Sir Christopher Wren. By the late 19th century, the books was owned by the marine engineer George Sloggett of Cardiff, Wales First edition. 8vo (8-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches). Illustrations.

        Idea de una Nueva Historia General de la América Septentrional. Fundada sobre material copioso de figuras, Symbols, Caracteres, Geroglifcos, Cantares, y Manuscritos de Autores Indios, ultimamente Descubiertos

      En la Imprenta de Juan de Zuniga, Madrid 1746 - [xxxvi]+167+[viii]+96 pages. Octavo (8 1/4" x 6 1/4") bound in full leather with decorative gilt and lettering to spine. From the library of George M Foster. 1st edition. Lorenzo Boturini Benaducci, born in Italy of noble parentage, studied in Milan and lived in Trieste and Vienna. He was a knight of the Holy Roman Empire. Forced to flee Austria because of the war with Spain, Boturini arrived in Spain via England and Portugal. In Madrid he met the Condesa de Santibáñez, oldest daughter of the Condesa de Moctezuma. The mother authorized him to collect a pension due her, as a descendant of the Aztec Emperor Moctezuma II, from the royal treasury in New Spain. Boturini went to New Spain in 1736, where he remained eight years. During those years he assembled a vast collection of paintings, maps, manuscripts and native codices. He copied more than 500 pre-Columbian inscriptions and made his own drawings of monuments and sculptures, and he investigated the history of the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe on the hill of Tepeyac. He traveled widely and on his travels brought together the largest collection of Mexican antiquities assembled to that time by a European. Not only did he intend to write the history of the Virgin of Guadalupe, but he also had plans to crown her image with a gold crown. For that purpose he sought donations from the bishops and from the public. This brought him to the attention of the colonial government, which was suspicious of the motives of a foreigner making this proposal. On June 2, 1743 after an investigation, the recently arrived viceroy, Pedro Cebrián y Agustín, had him imprisoned and impounded his collection. He was accused of entering New Spain without license from the Council of the Indies and of introducing papal documents without a royal permit. After eight months in prison, Boturini was sent to Spain. He fell into the hands of pirates, who eventually released him at Gibraltar. From there he traveled to Madrid, in miserable conditions. In Madrid he met Mariano Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia, another passionate collector of Indian antiquities. Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia offered Boturini a place to live and financial support, and got the Council of the Indies to reconsider his case. Boturini was absolved. The king named him royal chronicler of the Indies, ordered that his collection be returned to him, and extended an invitation for him to return to New Spain. Boturini, however, declined to return to New Spain, and his collection was never restored. It appears that he was granted recompense and a stipend to work on his projected history of the colony. In Madrid he wrote a history of ancient Mexico, unpublished at the time of his death in 1753. The library at the Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe is named for him. The Boturini Collection collection was formed between 1735 and 1743, to serve as the basis of a projected Historia de América Septentrional. It consisted of many valuable documents, the majority of them of Indian provenance. Among these were hieroglyphic paintings that had belonged to Juan de Alva Ixtlilxochitl, a descendant of the rulers of Texcoco. Ixtlilxotchitl bequeathed these documents to Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora. The collection was confiscated by Viceroy Pedro Cebrián y Agustín at the time of Boturini's arrest in 1743. It was deposited in the office of the secretary of the viceroyalty. The documents were neglected there for years and suffered considerable pilferage. The subsequent viceroy, Juan Francisco de Güemes, 1st Count of Revillagigedo, granted the historian and antiquary Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia (Boturini's friend from Madrid) the paintings and documents he solicited for his own studies. On Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia's death, they passed to Antonio de León y Gama. He died in 1802, and the collection passed to his heirs. Shortly thereafter, 16 paintings were obtained by Alexander von Humboldt during his visit to Mexico in 1802-03. He published [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Being part of a letter from the Right Honourable George Earl of Macclesfield to Martin Folkes, Esq; President of the Royal Society, and by him communicated to the same May 10, 1750. Charles Davis, 1750, FIRST EDITION, folding table at end, pp. [2], 19, 8vo, the three bound together in contemporary polished calf, spine gilt in compartments with red lettering-piece, rebacked with original spine laid on, marbled endpapers, edges of the second work stained red, book label of Biblioteca San Isidoro de Urbe on front paste-down with their ink stamp at foot of title and last leaf and manuscript inscription on title, ink stamp of Biblioteca San Vilaseca on title recto, later ownership inscription of Richard Francis Walsh, 1827, on first title, good Costard (1710-1782) was educated at Wadham College, Oxford, where he became fellow and tutor. One of the earliest writers on the history of astronomy, his Letter to Martin Folkes and Further Account treat the Astronomy of the Chaldeans, of the Constellations in the Book of Job, and of the Mythological Astronomy of the Ancients. In his view exact astronomy was a product of Greek genius, beginning with Thales, and owed little either to Egypt or Babylon. His works are still worth consulting for the frequent references to and citations from Hebrew, Arabic, and the less-known Greek authors contained in them. ‘In parliament [George Parker, second earl of] Macclesfield was a principal proponent in 1752 (with Lord Chesterfield) for the adoption of the Gregorian calendar and the change in the new year from 26 March to 1 January. He communicated to the Royal Society on 10 May 1750 a preparatory paper entitled ‘Remarks upon the solar and the lunar years’ and made most of the necessary calculations, and his speech in the House of Lords on 18 March 1751, on the second reading of the Bill for Regulating the Commencement of the Year, was printed by general request. Lord Chesterfield wrote of him as the virtual author of the bill . Macclesfield’s action in the matter was in some quarters unpopular. When his eldest son, Lord Parker, contested Oxfordshire in 1754, one of the cries of the crowd was, "Give us back the eleven days we have been robbed of"’ (ODNB).St. Isidore’s College in Rome was founded in 1625 by the Irish priest Luke Wadding (b. 1588). Its original purpose was the training of missionary friars to keep faith alive at home, but it became a haven for Irish nationalist exiles, and a centre for learning, culture and missionary activity known throughout Europe. According to ESTC the second two works are very rare outside the UK - the Costard is in Gottingen and California (two copies) only, with the Parker in just the Huntington and Kansas.

      Mexici [México] : Typis Viduae Josiphi Bernardi de Hogal 1746 - ~ An outstanding contribution of the Mexican Jesuit Matías Blanco (1660?-1734) to settle the controversy between the Jesuits, the Dominicans and the Franciscans, about the relationship between divine foreknowledge and human free will. The long-lasting quarrel forced Pope Clement VIII, at the end of the 16th century, to set up the "De auxiliis" commission in Rome to calm down the often too virulent disputes. Blanco, viewing himself as a peace-maker (caduceatore), submitted his own solution, hoping it would be acceptable to all. While the philosophical issue of the reconciliation between grace and free will is still alive today, Blanco's thesis shows an astonishing modernity and is considered by recent criticism as an impressive piece of logical thought.

        EPANAPHORA INDICA [Parts I - VI].

      Lisbon -1752. 1746 - Six volumes bound in one. 59; 74; [20],3- 67pp. plus folding map; [1],109; [1],86; [12],72pp. In Portuguese. Small quarto. Modern antique-style speckled calf, spine gilt, raised bands, gilt morocco label. 20th-century bookplate and manuscript notes in Portuguese on modern front endpapers. Margins of Part V trimmed more closely than margins of other parts. Light wear to calf. Minor foxing; some toning; minor marginal worming affecting a few characters of text on pp.9-14. A very good copy. The extremely rare complete series of writings of José Freire de Monterroyo Mascarenhas on the Portuguese Viceroyalty of Goa under the Marquez do Castelo Novo. Dom Pedro Miguel de Almeida e Portugal, the Count of Assumar and first Marquez of Castelo Novo, served as Viceroy of Goa from 1744 to 1750. The present work, published in six parts between 1746 and 1753, describes Castelo Novo's government, its struggles with the neighboring Maratha Empire, and various other events of the period, including the voyage and installation of Father Lourenço de Santa Maria as Primate Archbishop of Goa and Primate of Oriental Asia in 1744. Castelo Novo was largely successful in defending Portuguese interests from the Marathas, earning the title Marquez do Alorna for his capture of the city of that name in 1746. In his major work on the Portuguese in India, Frederick Charles Danvers writes that the "government of the Marquez de Castello-Novo e Alorna is deservedly looked upon as a brilliant episode in the declining years of Portuguese Power in India, and he as one of the best and most successful Viceroys of that period" (THE PORTUGUESE IN INDIA, Vol. II, p.418). Freire de Monterroyo Mascarenhas's work, the most extensive history of this episode, has also been noted for "throw[ing] much new light on Mahratta [i.e. Maratha] History" when it was examined by Ethel M. Pope for her 1937 work, INDIA IN PORTUGUESE LITERATURE (p.191). The six parts of the EPANAPHORA. are as follow: PARTE I: EPANAPHORA INDICA NA QUAL SE DÀ NOTICIA DA VIAGEM, QUE O .SENHOR MARQUEZ DE CASTELO NOVO FEZ COM O CARGO DE VICE-REY AO ESTADO DA INDIA, E DOS PRIMEIROS PROGRESSOS DO SEU GOVERNO.E SE REFEREM TAMBEM OS SUCCESSOS DA VIAGEM DO.SENHOR D. FR. LOURENÇO DE SANTA MARIA, ARCEBISPO DE GOA. [1746]. PARTE II: EPANAPHORA INDICA EM QUE SE REFEREM OSPROGRESSOS QUE TEM FEITO NO GOVERNO DO ESTADO DA INDIA PORTUGUESA O.SENHOR MARQUEZ DE CASTELO NOVO. [1747]. PARTE III: EPANAPHORA INDICA CONTINUA-SE EM REFERIR OS INCLITOS PROGRESSOS DO.SENHOR MARQUEZ DE CASTELO NOVO. [1748]. This part contains a large folding map of Goa and its surrounding lands, "PLANTA DA JLHA DE GOA NA INDIA E SUAS TERRAS CONSINANTES f. por d'Orgeval 1747." PARTE IV: EPANAPHORA INDICA EM QUE SE LERÁM OS PROGRESSOS POLITICOS, MILITARES, E CIVIS, QUE NO DISCURSO DO ANNO DE 1747, FEZ NO SEU GOVERNO O.SENHOR MARQUEZ DE ALORNA. [1748]. PARTE V: EPANAPHORA INDICA CONTINUAM OS PROGRESSOS DO GOVERNO DO.SENHOR MARQUEZ DE ALORNA. [1750]. PARTE VI: EPANAPHORA INDICA CONTINUAÕ-SE, E FINALIZAÕ-SE OS PROGRESSOS DO GOVERNO DO.SENHOR MARQUEZ DE ALORNA. [1752]. An early 20th-century inscription on the front free endpaper notes the quality of this work ("Classico, muito estimado") and the great difficulty in procuring or assembling a volume containing all six parts, a task that took the original owner of this volume "many years." This owner also mentions that the "sage orientalist [Mons Rodolfo Sebastião] Dalgado was aware of only four parts." WorldCat and OCLC list only two complete copies, at the National Library of Australia and the Newberry Library; the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal in Lisbon also holds a copy in all six parts. Harvard and the University of Minnesota both hold copies in only the first five parts. Not in Palau.

First printing of this account of important events of King George's War in 1744-48. "The attack on Louisbourg in 1745 was looked upon by Shirley only as a step towards a complete conquest of Canada, and the success of the siege at once raised his hopes. Instigated by him, the English ministry approved of an expedition against Canada, and a force of over eight thousand men was raised, principally from the northern colonies. The British force which was to have co-operated was, however, detained either by bad weather or by the blundering of the ministry, and nothing came of the attempt" - Lande.

        Verdadeiro metodo de estudar, para ser util à Republica, e à Igreja: Proporcionado Ao estilo, e necesidade de Portugal. Exposto Em varias cartas escritas polo R.P. *** Barbadinho da Congregasam de Italia, R.P. *** Doutor na Universidade de Coimbra.

      Valensa , Antonio Balle [i.e. Naples: Gennaro e Vincenzo Muzio], 1746. - Large woodcut vignettes on title-pages. Woodcut initials. Typographical headpieces. (6 ll.), 322 pp., (3 ll. errata); (2 ll.), 300 pp., (1 l. errata). 2 volumes. 4º, contemporary cat's-paw sheep (very slight wear), spines gilt with raised bands in five compartments, red leather lettering pieces, gilt letter, edges sprinkled red. Small, light waterstain in upper margin of first few leaves of the first volume. Overall a clean, crisp, fine set. Contemporary signature on rectos of front free endleaves. 2 volumes. ---- FIRST EDITION, second (and first available?) issue of this revolutionary pedagogical work that aroused a storm of controversy. Printed at Naples, the bulk of the original edition was seized and destroyed by the Inquisition upon disembarkation at Lisbon; some copies were salvaged, and new title-pages and preliminary matter were printed clandestinely in Lisbon, probably 1747?1749, to be added to the original gatherings of the main text, with the false imprint: Valensa: Antonio Balle, 1746. The only known complete extant copy of the first issue, with the original Naples imprint, is in the Biblioteca nazionale Vittorio Emanuele III in Naples. There is also a copy of volume II only in the Biblioteca Nacional de España. Another edition, with the imprint Valensa: Antonio Balle, 1747, was produced clandestinely in Lisbon, probably in 1751. For a thorough discussion of the printing history of the two issues of the first edition as well as that of the second edition, see Maria Teresa Payan Martins, @Livros clandestinos e contrafacções em Portugal no século XVIII, pp. 356-71; there is also a discussion of the numerous polemical works generated by this publication, many with false imprints, on pp. 371-82. .The @Verdadeiro metodo is a turning point in Portuguese educational theory, advocating a method of teaching radically opposed to that of the Jesuits, and serving as the basis of many of the educational reforms instituted under the Marques de Pombal. Because substantial sections are devoted to literature, it is also an important work for the study of contemporary literary theory. Saraiva and Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (16th ed.) devote nine pages (pp. 597?605) to an analysis of Verney's literary esthetics as presented in this work, and comment that "teve uma projecção incomparável no nosso século XVIII, não só quanto à orientação pedagógica, mas também quanto à ideologia filosófica e até à teoria literaria" (p. 591).Volume I suggests improvements in the teaching of Portuguese grammar, Latin grammar and literature, the Greek and Hebrew languages, rhetoric, poetry and philosophy. Volume II covers metaphysics, physics, ethics, medicine, jurisprudence, theology, and canon law. The work ends with a summary of educational policy, including the education of women. Innocêncio lists over 20 works attacking or defending Verney's ideas. Verney wrote several works answering his critics.Verney (Lisbon, 1713?Rome, 1792) was a philosopher and critic as well as a pedagogue. Called the most important figure of the Portuguese enlightenment (@Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, I, 521), he was educated by the Jesuits at their Colégio de Santo Antão and received a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Évora. Traveling to Rome in 1736, he earned his degree in civil jurisprudence, after which he was named by the Pope to be Archdeacon at Évora. There he conceived his plan to reform Portugal's educational system, and began a lengthy work describing the necessary reforms in all branches of the system. As a prelude to it, he published the @Verdadeiro metodo (Naples 1746; second issue Valensa, 1746) which sets out in summary form his criticism of the existing system and his proposals for changing it.---- Innocêncio V, 222: without collation.

        AN EXPLICATION OF THE FIRST CAUSES OF ACTION IN MATTER; AND OF THE CAUSE OF GRAVITATION.

      New-York: Printed.and London Reprinted: for J. Brindley, 1746. - 75pp. Modern three-quarter speckled calf and original marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Lightly tanned. Very good. The first British edition of Cadwallader Colden's important early contribution to American scientific knowledge, first published in New York in 1745. Colden was an important political figure in the colony of New York throughout his long life. He is best known for his history of the Iroquois, but he was also a polymathic naturalist and scientist. Although his anti-Newtonian arguments ultimately proved to be fallacious, this work was nonetheless an important contribution. It was one of the first serious scientific works conceived and written in America, and was widely discussed at the time. Colden's work was published in two editions in London, and also translated into French, demonstrating the interest in Europe in American scientific thought. Sabin asserts that this first English edition was brought out without Colden's knowledge or consent. Benjamin Franklin attributed attacks on the publication to the reluctance of Europeans to learn from "us Americans." Colden, with Franklin, was one of the founders of the American Philosophical Society. HOWES C559, "b." SABIN 14268. DAB IV, pp.286-87.

        De la diferencia entre lo temporal y eterno, crisol de desengaños. Con la memoria de la eternidad, postrimerias humanas y principales misterios divinos Corregida de muchas erratas, y enriquescida con muy lindas estampas.

      Antwerp, Marc-Michel Bousquet, 1746. - 8vo. xiv + 720p. With 12 engraved plates including frontispiece. Contemporary marbled sheep, spine richly decorated in gilt with morocco. Title label. Finely illustrated edition of the Spanish Jesuit's immensely influential ascetic work, a discourse on the difference between the temporal and the eternal. The author bases his arguments on the Bible, historical example, the ancient philosophers (Aristotle, Seneca) and Christian asceticism as taught by St Augustine and St Bernard. Interspersed with his own philosophy are historical anecdotes and references to the value of symbolism. Juan Eusebio Nieremberg (c1585-1658), born in Madrid of German descent, was one of the most prolific Jesuit authors of this time. The present work, his bestknown, first published in Madrid in 1640, was chosen by the Jesuit General Tirso Gonzalez (1687-1705) to refute the heretic teachings of Laxism and Quietism. It was very widely translated - a celebrated translation into Guarani was the first book printed in the Jesuit Missions in Paraguay (1705), which shows the importance attached to the text by the Order. Some minor occasional traces of usage in margins, otherwise a very good copy. Palau 190857; Peeters Fountainas 834. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
