        Svea rikes konungars historia ok ättartal, ifrån 2200 år före Christum, intil 1749. Efter de äldsta och bästa handlingar i korthet författad, jämte införda bevis uti tvenne bihang, geographiska anmärkningar, ok jämnförelse imellan alla sveo-götiska konunga historier.

      Sthlm, L. L. Grefing, 1748-49. 8:o. (32),416,1-23,(9) s. & 2 utvikbara grav. kartor & 1 utvikbar grav. plansch & 1 stor utvikbar tryckt tabell. Torrt och lite flammigt samtida skinnbd med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad rygg, blekt brun titeletikett av glättad papp och röda snitt. Skinnet ytligt nött på sina håll, t.ex. på binden. Ngt sotig i inre marginalen vid s. 1. För övrigt endast sporadiska lager- och småfläckar. Den avslutande tabellen har en gammal lagad reva på baksidan. Med Ulric Celsings namnteckning. Från Biby.. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 2534: "Onekeliget är, at författaren, vid sit arbete, nedlagt mycken möda; men deremot saknas granskning och smak". Den andra pagineringsföljden med eget titelblad: "Hennes kgl. höghets af Svearike, Lovisa Ulricas Svearikes, Vendes ok Götes kron prinsessas &c. &c. &c. langfädgar eller förfäder, man efter man räknad, ifrån forna Svea konungar, uti underdånighet beskrefne". Tabellen med eget impressum har rubriken "Atlands eller Svearikes konunga längder". Den första kartan föreställer postvägen mellan Stockholm och Åbo och planschen avbildar i kraftig sjögång båten med vilken överste von Lingen tog sig över Ålands hav från Åbo till Stockholm via Åland och Grisslehamn med fredspreliminären den 19 juni 1743. Lindroth skriver: "Liksom andra rudbeckianer prövade också Göransson lyckan med en götisk kungalängd. Denna behandlar i biografisk form de 111 konungar, som regerat i Sverige från Gomer ca 2200 år f. Kr. till Fredrik I. Det mesta är välbekant, annat av eget fabrikat. Oden möter alltjämt som identisk med Näcken eller Platons Poseidon, den Fornjoterska ätten är medtagen men sent placerad, liksom hos Bonde vid makten fram till den andre Oden eller Sigge Friduvaldson. På varje punkt menade sig Göransson ha de bästa källor, alla uppräknade och sedan länge välkända, från feniciern Sankuniaton, Homeros och andra greker till Snorre och den isländska sagaskatten"

        Querquedula &c [ Blue-winged Teal]

      London: (1748-) 1754 [Second edition]. Hand-coloured copper engraving on laid paper. Excellent condition. Sheet size: 12 3/4 x 18 inches. A fine image from Catesby's 'The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands', "the most famous colour-plate book of American plant and animal life...a fundamental and original work for the study of American species" (Hunt) Trained as a botanist, Catesby travelled to Virginia in 1712 and remained there for seven years, sending back to England collections of plants and seeds. With the encouragement of Sir Hans Sloane and others, Catesby returned to America in 1722 to seek materials for his 'Natural History'; he travelled extensively in Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and the Bahamas, sending back further specimens. His preface provides a lengthy account of the development of this work, including his decision to study with Joseph Goupy in order to learn to etch his plates himself to ensure accuracy and economy. A lovely and important work, embodying the most impressive record made during the colonial period of the natural history of an American colony. The most significant work of American natural history before Audubon's Birds of America. "The Blue-winged Teal (Anas discors) is a small dabbling duck. The adult male has a greyish blue head with a white facial crescent, a light brown body with a white patch near the rear and a black tail. The adult female is mottled brown. Both sexes have a blue wing patch. In flight, they flap their wings especially rapidly. Their breeding habitat is marshes and ponds throughout north and central North America. The nest is a shallow depression on the ground lined with grass and down, usually surrounded by vegetation. They migrate in flocks to Central and South America. During migration, some birds may fly long distances over open ocean. They are occasional vagrants to Europe, where their yellow legs are a distinction from other small ducks like Common Teal and Garganey. DNA analysis of this species has revealed its genetic make up to be almost identical to that of the Cinnamon teal. These birds feed by dabbling in shallow water. They mainly eat plants; their diet may include molluscs and aquatic insects. The call of the male is a short whistle; the female's call is a soft quack." (Wikipedia) Cf. Anker 95; cf. Clark I:55; cf.

        Anas Minor Purpureo Capite [The Buffel's Head Duck] [Pl. 95, Vol. I]

      London: (1748-) 1754 [Second edition]. Hand-coloured copper engraving, on laid paper. Very good condition. 14 x 20 1/2". A fine image from Catesby's 'The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands', "the most famous colour-plate book of American plant and animal life...a fundamental and original work for the study of American species." (Hunt) Mark Catesby's Natural History is a vibrant and original work in which each plate seems to have been created without preconceptions or habitual form, embodying wit and the love every true naturalist feels for nature's beings. Far from being a mere animal identifcation book, Catesby's work is a testament to the glory of nature and life. The Bufflehead Duck is a small, beautiful diving duck that Catesby could have seen anywhere on the southern Atlantic coast. The black head as a lovely purplish sheen mentioned in the Latin title. Bufflehead is short for Buffalo Head, in reference to what appears to be his disproportionately large head. Trained as a botanist, Catesby travelled to Virginia in 1712 and remained there for seven years, sending back to England collections of plants and seeds. With the encouragement of Sir Hans Sloane and others, Catesby returned to America in 1722 to seek materials for a 'Natural History'; he travelled extensively in the Carolinas, Georgia, and the Bahamas, collecting specimens and making drawings from life. His preface provides a lengthy account of the development of this work, including his decision to study with Joseph Goupy in order to learn to etch his plates himself to ensure accuracy and economy.

Edizione originale di quest?opera che venne poi ristampata nel 1783 nella Collezione dei poemi in lingua napoletana. Biagio Valentino, l?autore fu frate laico dei Minori Osservanti e l?opera è il frutto degli incontri e delle osservazioni sul costume dell?epoca che fece nel corso degli anni facendo la questua per il Monastero di Monte Calvario.

Blagden experimented on human ability to withstand high temperatures. In his report to the Royal Society in 1775, he was first to recognize the role of perspiration in thermoregulation. 2).

In March, Priestley wrote to several people regarding the new "air" that he had discovered several months earlier. One of these letters was read aloud to the Royal Society, and he published a paper in Philosophical Transactions titled "An Account of further Discoveries in Air." Priestley called the new substance "dephlogisticated air" and described it as "five or six times better than common air for the purpose of respiration, inflammation, and, I believe, every other use of common atmospherical air."

        The Elements of Logick. In four books

      London: Printed for R. Dodsley, 1748 First separate edition. Originally published in the same year as part of Dodsley's the Preceptor. Duncan's work became a standard eighteenth-century logic, going through ten editions in fifty years. The first American edition appeared in 1792. The present edition is surprisingly scarce: ESTC lists only four copies in North America: Cornell, Pennsylvania, Trinity and Michigan. Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked. Gilt-ruled spine with burgundy morocco label. Twelvemo. Complete with half-title. A very good copy. William Duncan (1717-1760) attended Marischal College, Aberdeen, and graduated MA in 1737. He wrote The Elements of Logick to 'introduce scientifical Reasoning into natural Knowledge;" its publication came shortly before the Baconian curriculum reforms introduced at Aberdeen University by Thomas Blackwell, with whom Duncan had once studied Greek. The work's success led to his appointment as professor of philosophy at Marischal College.

Edges of boards with blindstamped decorations. A bit of wear along hinges and to extremities, and a small piece of leather missing from upper capital. Otherwise very fine and well preserved. Occasional light brownspotting. (8), XXIV, 522, (1, -errata); (4), XVI, 564 pp.. First edition, later issue (Barrillot with 1 "r" on title-page + errata) of Montesquieu's seminal main work, "[i]n many ways one of the most remarkable works of the eighteenth century" (PMM 197), in which the author presents his theory of constitutional monarchy, advocating constitutionalism and the separation of powers, and explains human laws and social institutions. The very first printing, i.e. the first edition, first issue, of the present work is of the utmost scarcity. Numerous editions and issues of the work were printed in the months following the first appearance, and these are very difficult to distinguish between. The present copy collates as the first issue, apart from the errata, which did not appear with the first issue. It furthermore has the spelling "Barilot" with one "r", whereas the first issue has two "r"'s. Montesquieu began writing this his magnum opus in 1743, by the end of which year he had almost finished the first draft of it. The same year he began the first of two great revisions of it, which he finished in 1746. In 1747 he finished his second revision, adding several new chapters, and chose J. Barrillot from Geneva to publish the work, which finally appeared for the first time in November 1748, in two quarto volumes, with no mention of author or year. Numerous editions and issues appeared the following months and years, and by 1751 22 editions of the work had appeared. Already in 1750 the work was published in English, the English editions amounting to 10 by 1773, and by 1801 the work had appeared in both German (1789), Dutch, Danish, Polish, Italian, and Russian (1801). The work exercised the greatest of influence, both negative and positive, and numerous anti-Montesquieu-pamphlets and articles appeared during the last half of the 18th century. Because of the work, Montesquieu was also attacked by the Sorbonne, as well as in the general assembly of the French clergy, and in Rome. In 1751 the work was placed on the Index.As the number of editions, translations etc. bears witness to, the work provided the greatest of impact on 18th century political thought as well as actual politics and law. In fact, few other works can be claimed to possess the same power of influence as this one, directly affecting the likes of Tocqueville and Catherine the Great. Although Montesquieu had to defend himself against great thinkers like Voltaire, "his theories underlay the thinking which led up to the American and French revolutions, and the United States Constitution in particular is a lasting tribute to the principles he advocated." (PMM 197). "Montesquieu was one of the great political philosophers of the Enlightenment. Insatiably curious and mordantly funny, he constructed a naturalistic account of the various forms of government, and of the causes that made them what they were and that advanced or constrained their development. He used this account to explain how governments might be preserved from corruption. He saw despotism, in particular, as a standing danger for any government not already despotic, and argued that it could best be prevented by a system in which different bodies exercised legislative, executive, and judicial power, and in which all those bodies were bound by the rule of law. This theory of the separation of powers had an enormous impact on liberal political theory, and on the framers of the constitution of the United States of America."

        Les Loix du Mouvement et du Repos déduites d'un Principe Metaphysique. [In: "Mémoires de l'Academie Royale des Sciences et Belles Lettres. Année 1746"].

      Berlin, Ambroise Haude, 1748. 4to. Later boards. Issued in "Mémoires de l'Academie Royale des Sciences et Belles Lettres. Année 1746", tome II, pp. 267-294. Bound with the orig. title-page and special title to the whole volume II. Title printed in red and. black, with an engraved vignette. Title-page with a stamp (Royal College of Surgeons of England). First edition of this important memoir, in which Maupertuis set forth his famous principle of "Least Action", his most important scientific contribution. Its influence is so profound and far reaching that many scientists regard it as the most powerful single principle in mathematical physics and place it at the pinnacle of physical science. Max Planck expressed this view as follows: "The highest and most coveted aim of physical science is to condense all natural phenomena which have been observed and are still to be observed into one single principle... Amid the more or less general laws which mark the achievements of physical science during the course of the last centuries, the principle of least action is perhaps that which, as regard form and content, may claim to come nearest to this ideal final aim of theoretical research."The middle of the 18th century was a tumultuous and interesting time for the development of mathematics and physics. Voltaire had just returned back to France from England, where he had gotten acquainted with the work of Newton and began working on his "Philosophical Letters", the work through which many Frenchmen would be introduced to Newton. In the meantime, Maupertuis had studied Newton intensely and become the leading French Newtonian, and Voltaire sought his advice as soon as he returned to France. Maupertuis was the first to openly advocate the Newtonian theory in the Paris Academy of Sciences and the first on the continent to use Newton's theory of gravitation to determine the shape of the earth, obtaining a result that opposed the Cartesian system. He published his work on the shape of the heavenly bodies in 1732, and thereby helped spread a new science of the greatest importance. This new science was not harmless, however, and the authorities fell over Voltaire, who was propounding it in his philosophical letters; at the same time, Madame du Chatelet became captivated with the new science and began studying with Maupertuis in 1734. To avoid the Bastille, Voltaire went with Madame du Chätelet to her chateau in Cirey, and there he worked on his "Elements of the Philosophy of Newton", which later became so hugely popular. Madame de Chätelet, however, became acquainted with the thought of Leibnitz, probably through letters from Frederick the Great of Prussia, and became fascinated with his thought. She also began reading Bernouilli's work on movement and was totally convinced after having heard from Maupertuis that he also agreed to the correctness of Bernouilli's arguments. While all of these things essential to the history of science at the time were taking place, Frederick the Great was trying to persuade Maupertuis (after advise from Voltaire) to come to Berlin as president of his new academy there. When Maupertuis visited Berlin in 1740, he was captured (by mistake) at the Battle of Mollwitz and taken to Vienna as a prisoner of war. In 1745, however, he did succeed in coming to Berlin, and he was now given the presidency of the "Académie Royal de Berlin". He inaugurated his presidency with an important paper on the laws of motion and equilibrium, in which he discussed the highly debated theories of Descartes and Newton that so vividly took up the scientific circles of France. This paper was entitled "Les lois du movement et du repos déduites d'un principe de métaphysique" [The laws of movement and rest deducted from a metaphysical principle] (i.e. the offered item). The metaphysical principle mentioned in the title was his "principle of least action", his most significant scientific contribution.In the introduction to the work, he explains that he bases it on the principle that he first presented in a paper in 1744. He further explains that Professor Euler at the end of the same year had published his "Methodus inviendi lineas curvas maximi...", in the supplement of which he adds "cet illustre Géomêtre démontre: Que dans les trajectories, que des corps décrivent par des forces centrales, la vîtesse multipliée par l'elément de la courbe, fait toujours un MINIMUM." (the offered item, p. 1). Maupertuis now adds that this remark has given him great pleasure and that it is a beautiful application of his own principle on the movement of the planets, and furthermore that he, in the present article wishes, from the same source, to draw more truths about this superior and highly important genre. As such, the present article constitutes Maupertuis' most important work on his principle of least action. By discussing Descartes and Newton, he deduces the laws of motion and equilibrium from the attributes of God and proves that these laws express the principle of least action. The principle is also applied to physics, optics and biology. At the same time Euler provided the principle a mathematical formulation, and thereby laid the foundation for future mathematical studies."He regarded (the principle of least action) as his own most significant scientific contribution. It states simply that "in all the changes that take place in the universe, the sum of the products of each body multiplied by the distance it moves and by the speed with which it moves is the least possible." (DSB) - "These laws, so beautiful and so simple, are perhaps the only ones which the Creator and Organizer of things has established in matter in order to effect all the phenomena of the visible world." (Maupertuis). Poggendorff II: p. 85

        The Doctrine of Ultimators. Containing a new Acquisition to Mathematical Literature, Naturally resulting from the Consideration of an Equation, as reducible from its "variable" to its "ultimate State": Or, A Discovery Of the true and genuine Foundation of what has hitherto mistakenly prevailed under the improper Names of "Fluxions" and the "Differential Calculus". By Means of which We now have that Apex of all Mathematical Science entirely rescued from the blind and ungeometrical Method of Deduction, which it has hitherto laboured under; and made to depend on Principles as strictly demonstrable, as the most self-evident Proposition in the first Elements of "Geometry".

      London, J. Hodges, 1748. 4to. Contemporary half vellum with handwritten title to spine. Minor lack to upper capital. All in all a very nice, clean, and fresh copy. Macclesfield copy, with the armorial bookplate of Earls of Macclesfield to pasted down front end-paper and Shirburn Castle (seat of the Earls of Macclesfield) armorial blindstamp to first two leaves. (2), VIII, (4), 146 pp.. Extremely scarce first edition of Kirkby's corrective to the theory of Fluxions (and the Differential Calculus) - the mathematical method upon which Newton bases his famous "Principia" - in which he redefines the concept and renames it "Ultimators". The work places itself in the midst of the most important feud of the new mathematics and constitutes an interesting and important source to the development of the history of the doctrine of Fluxions. Kirkby here presents what he considers to be a discovery of the true foundation of the Differential Calculus and claims to have rescued it from "The blind ungeometrical Method of Deduction, which it has hitherto labored under" and made it to depend on strictly demonstrable principles, "as the most self-evident Proposition in the first Elements of "Geometry"." (Kirkby, title-page)."Every great epoch in the progress of science is preceded by a period of preparation and prevision. The invention of the differential and integral calculus is said to mark a "crisis" in the history of mathematics. The conceptions brought into action at that great time had been long in preparation. [...] It was in the year 1734 that Bishop Berkeley made his famous attack upon the doctrine of fluxions, which was the starting-point of all philosophical discussion of the new mathematics in England during the Eighteenth century." (Cajori, p. 1-2). This attack, i.e. Berkeley's critique of Newton's theory of Fluxions and in consequence the principles of Leibniz's Differential Calculus (presented in his "The Analyst"), sparked a seminal dispute that resulted in a large number of discussions of the foundations of mathematics, which continued in England until the nineteenth century. Kirkby's remarkable treatise, in which he seems to have discovered the solution to the problems that had hitherto plagued the theory, places itself in the middle of this dispute. Arguing that his doctrine depends only on "a due application of the cipher "o" to the analogous Office in Universal Arithmetic, which it is always known to occupy in Common Arithmetic" (Kirkby, Preface) and proving his doctrine algebraically, he concludes that: "Hence every "Ultimator" may be defined to be "The proper Reference of each Subject in a given Equation to the Peculiar Units of the Powers of all its Variants, in Order to discover the Ratios of those Variants to one another in their Ultimate state. " Which I take to be the true definition of "what has been hitherto most improperly and unintelligibly called a "Fluxion" by some, and a "Differential" by others. (Kirkby, p. 49). A review in "The Ladies Diary", London 1750 accuses Kirkby of being on the same side as Berkeley, like him, to have degraded the noblest science, believing to have overturned the Doctrine of Fluxions, and consequently to have provided in its place a new science of his own "whose Foundation, it seems, depends on "Cyphers", and Nought Powers full of conceited Expressions [...]." (p. 45). Kirkby himself states in the preface to his work: "I profess myself to have as due a Veneration as any Man for both the great Sir Isaac Newton, and his Contemporary the celebrated Mr. Leibnitz; which soever of the two was the first Inventor of the Superstructure already built upon this Foundation. But yet I hope I shall be excused in dissenting from the highest human Authority, where I have Demonstration on my Side, and consequently (which is the Case here) where that Authority must want it." (Kirkby, p. VIII). See chapter IX, "Abortive Attempts at Arithmetisation" of Cajori's "A History of the Conceptions of Limits and Fluxions in Great Britain from Newton to Woodhouse", which begins with a description of John Kirkby's "Doctrine of Ultimators", 1748 - pp. 225-30
