LA METTRIE (Julien Offray de)]
Genève, Her. De Cramer & Ph. Philibert, 1748 (tomes I et II). Berlin, 1750 (tome III). 3 volumes in-12, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs ornés de caissons fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin bordeaux et brun, filet d'encadrement à froid sur les plats, roulette à froid sur les coupes. Édition originale, sous l'adresse de Genève, conforme à la description donnée par Lemée et Stoddard, complet du troisième volume publié en 1750 avec les deux pages de 'clé' et le feuillet d'"Avis au relieur". "Jusqu'alors, La Mettrie n'avait pris pour cible que les confrères, personnellement attaqués et désignés à la malignité publique. Ici le ton s'élève, il sera question non plus seulement des médecins mais surtout de la médecine (.). Chemin faisant La Mettrie nous expose en quelque sorte le bilan de la Science à son époque" (R. Boissier, ‘La Mettrie’, p. 102-104). "Le livre se présente sous une forme pleine d'une savoureuse ironie et certains passages ne sont pas indignes de Molière ou de Lesage" (Lemée, p. 29). Le scandale provoqué par la publication de cet ouvrage contraignit La Mettrie à un nouvel exil, cette fois à Berlin où il trouva la mort. Cet ouvrage était déjà désigné comme "rare et recherché" par Quérard (‘France littéraire’, IV, p. 496). (Lemée, n°25, p. 47. Stoddard, n° 35). Les corps du texte des volumes I et II ont été intervertis. Quelques épidermures sur les plats. Rousseurs, plus soutenues à certains cahiers. Quelques petites traces de restaurations.

(10),CXIX,(8),208,(3);(2),231 pp. A few scattered brownspots. Wide-margined copy. ¶ First edition of this fundamental ultraneptunian theory of the earth in which Maillet presented his theory of the earth in the form of a lenghty conversation between two imaginary characters: a French missionary and an Indian philosopher named Telliamed (de Maillet spelled backwards). It is based on his own field observations of such phenomena as sea shells on mountains and retreating shorelines, and thus he is able to determine that the sea level is falling at a rate of 3 inches per century by evaporation, and that the Earth is more than two billion years old ! His transformatism in his evolutionary descriptions makes him an importent forerunner of Lamarck. - In this work we have THE FIRST RECOGNITION OF THE FACT that older rocks contains fewer fossils of existing species than do the yoynger."The diminuation of the sea and the related expansions of thhe continents compelled all forms of life to undergo a generalized transformation in order to adapt themselves to the new environmental conditions. Marine plants gave rise to land types; sea animals aquired flight and walking capacities and changed birds and land animals.....This fundamental work, in essence an ultraneptunian theory of the earth, was based largely on his geological field observations made during extensive travels throughout Egypt and other Mediterranean countries."(DSB IX, pp. 26 ff.)."Maill … [Click Below for Full Description]

KIRKBY, JOHN. - [RE-NAMING AND RE-FOUNDING NEWTON'S "FLUXIONS" AND LEIBNITZ' "DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUS"]
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).<br><br>"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.

John Taylor, Demosthenes, Aeschines, H Wolfius
57, 1748 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Three volumes of this scarce work Demosthenous, Aischinou, Deinarchou kai Demadou ta sozomena, edited by John Taylor a classical scholar. This work is bi-lingual, in both Greek and Latin and is an edition of the works of Demosthenes and Aeschines. This work was originally intended to be a complete edition of Demosthenes and Aeschines. However, Taylor only produced volumes II and III of this work, never completing his first volume. There is a preface to what was intended to be the first volume to the start of two of these three volumes. In Greek and Latin. Very Scarce ESTC number T138486. This set is a single copy of volume II and two copies of volume III. One of the copies of volume III is lacking the twenty-page dedication with the direction line 'Vol I', which the other two volumes have. These volumes have erroneously been bound by as volumes I-III to the spine labels, possibly for continuity purposes. Volume II has been bound as volume I to the spine label with the subsequent copies of volume III being bound as volume II and III to the spine labels. 'Praefatio' to the volume with 'III' to the spine label is bound after the first gathering of the twenty page 'dedicatio' or dedication, therefore interrupting the dedication. This volume is also lacking the engraved dedication leaf to Earl Granville otherwise known as Baron Carteret of Hawnes which is found following the title page of the third volume labelled 'II' to the spine label. Other than these two points, the volumes marked as II and III are identical in content. Imprint to the re … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIBIENA (Jean Galli de).
Amsterdam, 1748. 2 parties en 1 volume in-12. 2ff. 128pp. + 2ff. 114pp. Plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, filet doré sur les coupes, tranches rouges (charnière supérieure un peu fendue, quelques défauts). Jean Galli de Bibiena, né en 1709 à Nancy au sein d'une famille de peintres et d'architectes italiens originaire de Bologne, se consacra à la littérature et composa des pièces de théâtre et des romans. "La Poupée", roman libertin paru en 1747, est son livre le plus connu et il fut réédité à plusieurs reprises. En 1763 Bibiena fut condamné à mort pour le viol d'une petite fille, et il dut s'enfuir en Italie pour échapper à la sentence. Le présent ouvrage, dont le titre semble profiler une inquiétante relation avec ce fait divers sordide, est aujourd'hui surtout reconnu pour constituer un jalon notable de la littérature libertine, renouvelée à la lumière des grandes transformations de la pensée de son siècle. La publication des œuvres complètes de Bibiena en 2014 témoigne de l'intérêt grandissant porté à ses qualités littéraires, au-delà des zones d'ombre de sa biographie sulfureuse. Très bon exemplaire.

HOMANN, Johann Baptist (1663-1724)
Nuremberg: Heirs of J.B. Homann, 1748 [maps dated 1741-1749]. Folio (21 x 12 inches). Engraved allegorical title-page from "Atlas Novus" with recent colouring. Letterpress title-page in German and Latin. 50 double-page engraved maps, with original hand-colour in part and/or in outline (quite spotted, with one or two early repairs to verso, one or two maps a bit creased). Contemporary limp panelled calf, with central gilt supra libros of a ducal coronet above a wreath surrounding the number 50 (a bit scuffed, remains of original strap tie loosely inserted). Containing maps of the continents and the countries of Europe dated between 1741 and 1749. Maps related to America include: Planispaerium caeleste, Planiglobii terrestris,... 1746, and Americae mappa generalis..., 1746. Homann's prolific map and atlas production made an invaluable contribution to German regional cartography and had a profound impact on European map publishing in the eighteenth century. Founded in the year 1702, Homann's printing house became so successful that it was credited with the revival of the German printing industry, after what had been a long period of domination by the Dutch. Homann became a member of the Berlin Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1707, and in 1715 was appointed Geographer to the Emperor. By the time of his death in the year 1724, Homann had published more than 200 maps for his atlases. Under the direction of his son and son-in-law the firm would thrive well into the next century. Cf. Phillips 3498 and 3499. .

PUYSEGUR, Le Marechal de.
Charles-Antoine Jombert Paris, 1748. First edition. Two parts in 1 vol. Folio (43 x 29 cm). Frontispiece, title, pp. [12], 196; title, pp. 244, [2], with 41 engraved plans and maps, most double page, including large folding map of Paris; tear to corner of one leaf without affecting the text. Contemporary red morocco gilt, gilt monogram to covers, spine in seven compartments, green morocco label to second, others richly gilt, raised bands, all edges gilt. Superb example of Puysegur's important art of war from the library of the Russian Tsar. This classic work on warfare balances traditional enthusiasm for models from Classical History and examples of individual bravery, with a suitable emphasis on the increasing importance of firepower and a well-deployed artillery. Part I describes the rules of formation and movement in battle, and part II puts these rules into action in an imagined battle between the Seine and the Loire. The work was compiled by Marshal Jacques-François de Chastenet de Puységur (1656 – 1743), who served with distinction as the most experienced Marshal of Louis XIV. A lifetime of experience combined with devoted study of the classic texts on warfare went into his Art de la Guerre. His son, who also became a Marshal of France, published his father's classic on war posthumously. Cohen de Ricci 830 ("superbe portrait"). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

MACLAURIN, Colin.
London: Printed for the author's children and sold by A. Millar, et al. 1748. First edition. First edition, large-paper copy, of Maclaurin's statement of Newtonian theory, one of the three "most outstanding popular introductions to Newtonian science of the eighteenth century" (I. B. Cohen, Franklin and Newton, 1956, p. 209). "Though a number of other general expositions of Newton's thought were published during the eighteenth century, Maclaurin's Account has long been recognized as the leading authoritative statement of mainstream Newtonianism" (DNB). "Gifted with a genius for geometrical investigation second only to Newton's... Maclaurin, the one mathematician of the first rank trained in Great Britain in the [18th] century, confirmed Newton’s exclusive influence over British mathematics" (ibid.). After Newton's death in March 1727, his nephew-in-law John Conduitt started to collect materials for a biographical memoir of Newton and applied to several of Newton's contemporaries, including Maclaurin, for assistance. Although Conduitt's memoir never materialized (although some of the materials he collected made their way into Fontenelle's Éloge in 1728), his request prompted Maclaurin to prepare an account not only of Newton's discoveries in astronomy, gravitation and mechanics (though omitting his work on optics), but also of the philosophical systems that preceded Newton's. Maclaurin had nearly completed this work when, during the Jacobite rebellion of 1745, a Highland army marched upon Edinburgh. Maclaurin took a prominent part in preparing trenches and barricades for th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Piranesi, Giovanni Battista (1720 Mogliano bei Mestre ? Rom 1778)
Radierung, 1748, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Lilie im Kreis (Hind 1). 13,6:27 cm. Blatt 20, der ?Antichità romane de?tempi della Republica??. Abdruck der römischen Ausgabe, o.J., 1748. Literatur: Focillon 62; Hind 21; Taschen 95; Wilton-Ely 124. ? Sehr kräftiger Abdruck mit vollem Rand, die Ränder leicht gebräunt. Giovanni Battista Piranesi erhielt als Sohn eines Steinmetzes in Venedig die Ausbildung zum Architekten am Magistrato delle Acque zuerst bei seinem Onkel Matteo Lucchesi, mit dem er jedoch einen Streit hatte und infolge die Ausbildung abbrach, dann bei G.A. Scalfurotto (1670-1764). Es folgte eine weitere Ausbildung zum Bühnenbildner und er wurde Schüler des Kupferstechers C. Zucchi (1721-1805). 1740 begleitete er als Zeichner Marco Froscarini, den venezianischen Gesandten beim Vatikan, nach Rom, wo er die römische Baukunst studierte. Hier machte er 1741 die Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher bei dem Vedutenzeichner G. Vasi (1710-1782). Aber auch mit Vasi kam es zu einem Streit, weshalb er ebenso die Ausbildung in dessen Werkstatt abbrach. Bereits zwei Jahre später veröffentlichte er seine erste Radierfolge mit Stadtansichten, ?Prima parte di Architettura e Prospettive?. Die folgenden Jahre bis 1747 hielt er sich meist in Venedig auf, wo er 1744 für kurze Zeit bei G.B. Tiepolo (1696-1770) arbeitete. Dann kehrte er nach Rom zurück, wo er ein Geschäft eröffnete. Bis 1774 gab er weitere Folgen von Veduten barocker und antiker römischer Denkmäler heraus, mit denen er rasch zu einem der berühmtesten Kupferstecher seiner Zeit avancierte.

L'illustration se compose d'un frontispice, six figures hors texte et deux vignettes de titre ; bandeaux, lettrines, ornements. Ces illustrations sont identiques à la première édition mais inversées. Cette édition est celle que choisit Diderot lorsqu'il voulut corriger son roman, comme en témoigne l'exemplaire du second tome couvert d'annotations autographes présenté par la Librairie Henner en 1986 (Catalogue 25, n°21 bis), qui provenait vraisemblablement de la succession de Diderot. François Moureau soulève cette intéressante question dans la notice qu'il a consacrée à l'exemplaire corrigé : « Ce tome dépareillé provient de l'édition cataloguée en troisième lieu dans DPV.

Anson, George
Richard Walter/Printed for John and Paul Knapton. Thick Octavo. [24], 548pp. Fourth edition, 1748. Compiled by Richard Walter. Complete with folding map frontispiece and 2 other large folding maps (South America & Pacific Ocean). Maps having some minor repairs and restoration to reverse. Re-bound in a modern half calf, marbled paper sides. A little light surface wear and rubbing. New end papers and blanks. Occasional light browning/spotting. Otherwise contents in good order. A Very Good copy. Uncommon edition. The official account of Commodore George Anson's mission to disrupt or capture Spain's Pacific possessions during the conflict between Britain and Spain in the early 1740's. Returning to Britain in 1744 by way of China and thus completing a circumnavigation, the voyage was notable for the capture of an Acapulco galleon but also near catastrophic losses to disease with only 188 men of the original 1,800+ surviving. Undoubtedly one of the most important 18th century maritime adventure/travel books, so great was the demand when released in 1748 that four editions were published in that same year.

MONTESQUIEU, Charles Louis de Secondat, Baron de.]
Geneva: chez Barrillot & Fils, [1748]. 2 volumes, quarto (245 x 186 mm). Contemporary half roan, twin tan and beige paper labels lettered in gilt, smooth spines ruled in gilt, boards speckled black, edges red. Woodcut tail-pieces. Bound without the errata as often. Modern red morocco book label to rear free endpapers; contemporary or early ownership signature to half-title of Volume 1. Slight surface loss to boards, Volume 1 with small loss to fore margin of sig. Zz4, tiny hole to top margin of sig. Aa3, and sporadic faint dampstaining, ghosting from book label to top corners of last 3 or 4 leaves in both volumes. A very good copy. First edition of this classic in social science which influenced the formation of the United States Constitution and was the ideological basis of the French Revolution. "The most distinctive aspect of this immense syllabus is its moderation: a quality not designed to achieve official approval in 1748. It is an always original survey which is neither doctrinaire, visionary, eccentric, nor over-systematic" (PMM). L'Esprit des loix was a huge influence both on English law, especially as mediated by William Blackstone, and on those who framed the American Constitution. Blackstone's Commentaries, Hamilton's Federalist Papers and Tocqueville's Democracy in America are all thoroughly imbued with Montesquieu's theories. In particular, Montesquieu is credited with the idea that the powers of government should be separated and balanced in order to guarantee the freedom of the individual, a key concept in the creation of the US Constitution.

Edition originale tr?s rare. C'est ? la suite de la publication de l'Histoire naturelle de l'?me que La Mettrie dut se r?fugier ? Leyde. Ses attaques combin?es contre la religion et la profession m?dicale lui caus?rent tant d'ennemis puissants qu'afin d'?chapper ? l'arrestation et ? l'emprisonnement, il dut s'exiler de lui-m?me ? la cour de Fr?d?ric II o? il fut nomm? membre de l'Acad?mie royale des sciences.

L'ouvrage de P?n?lope ou Machiavel en m?decine parut sous le nom d'Aletheius ; il pr?sente un int?r?t philosophique ind?niable car il pose ? la fois, et de mani?re tout ? fait neuve, la question de la comp?tence des m?decins, ainsi que celle du pouvoir de fait de ce corps de doctes.

DUVERNEY, [Guichard Joseph].
London: Printed for John Whiston...and Samuel Baker, 1748. Third edition in English of the first scientific account of the structure, function and diseases of the ear. It was Duverney who first suggested the theory of hearing later developed by, and accredited to, Helmholtz. The book, though comparatively short, is accurate, a model of clear exposition in both text and illustration. This English edition was translated from the new edition which Duverney prepared in collaboration with Winslow. See G&M 1545 and 3351 (first edition of 1683). This edition retains the misprint in the numbering of p. 27 in the first English edition, and is therefore probably identical to it. For a full account of this book's content and importance, see Stevenson & Guthrie, pp. 38-39, and Politzer, History of Otology. pp. 117-124: "... a milestone in the science of otology..." Russell 294.12mo, pp. (xii), 145, (1) blank, (14), and 16 engraved plates (all but one folding). Contemporary speckled calf, ends of spine and koints neatly repaired, spine gilt in compartments (but the gilt now a little dull), red morocco label. Ownership note by C.P. dated May 1749; 18th century armorial bookplate of William Hanbury; stamp of Bradford Eye and Ear Hospital; signature of Nehemiah Asherson (bibliographer of Duverney); bookplate of Richard J. Bennett on front endpapers.

Hume, David]
London, Printed for A. Millar, opposite Katharine-Street in the Strand, 1748, Rara prima edizione. Carte lievemente brunite, per il resto esemplare in ottime condizioni. Ex libris William Edward Surtees con dismissione per ordine del consiglio della Surtees Library. Opera fondamentale di Hume, stampata nell’aprile del 1748 in sole 750 copie (Beauchamp, p. xxxvi). Sul finire degli anni Venti del ’700, l’autore intraprese un estenuante percorso di ricerche filosofiche che confluirono nelle prime due parti della sua opera fondamentale, il «Treatise of human nature». Uscito a Londra in forma anonima nel 1739, il «Treatise» fu molto criticato per la sua complessità, anche stilistica, e non riscosse il successo sperato. L’anno successivo Hume ne ricavò dunque un «Abstract», e pubblicò, sempre a Londra e sempre anonima, la terza parte del «Treatise». Il lavoro su quest’opera fondamentale del suo pensiero non si arrestò qui. Nel 1748 Hume pubblicò infatti i «Philosophical Essays Concerning Human Understanding», una rielaborazione della prima parte del «Treatise» con l’aggiunta di nuove importanti sezioni: il capitolo VIII ‘Of Liberty and Necessity’, che accoglie materiale tratto dalla seconda parte del «Treatise»; e il capitolo X ‘Of Miracles’, una creazione del tutto originale, sebbene in parte elaborata già nel 1737. Di lì a qualche anno, e precisamente nel 1751, i «Philosophical Essays» vennero ripubblicati con il titolo «An enquiry concerning human understanding».

HUME, David.
London: printed for M. Cooper, 1748. Octavo in fours (177 x 115 mm). Recent calf-backed marbled paper boards, vellum tips, new endpapers, edges sprinkled red. Contemporary manuscript corrections in ink to pages 25, 27, 49, 50. Contents evenly toned with occasional faint spotting, stab holes visible, overall a very good copy. First edition, Todd's state (b), of one of Hume's rarest works, with an additional half-title not called for. The letter is dated 20 October 1747, and the postscript 4 November 1747. Stewart was a friend of Hume's and had supported his candidature for the Chair of Moral Philosophy at Edinburgh in 1744. He was charged with neglect of duty during the Jacobite rising of 1745 and acquitted in November 1747. Hume wrote this letter in Stewart's defence, and it is "an example of Hume at his best in historical narrative. Straightforward, urbane, and witty, it is also accurate, learned, and philosophical, and displays a solid understanding of the law" (Mossner, Life of Hume, pp. 182-6). Hume's performance prompted Stewart to give him some fine burgundy, of which Hume is recorded as saying, "The gift ruined me; I was obliged to give so many dinners in honour of the wine". Jessop, p. 18f; Todd 1748 (1) b; cf. Chuo 98 (Todd's state 'd'). [Attributes: First Edition]
