BUFFON (Georges-Louis Leclerc, comte de)
[Paris]. [1749], [1749], , 1 page in-12, manuscrit sur papier, cachet de cire aux armes de Buffon et adresse au recto, "Nous ne pouvons aler mon Cher Monsieur que Lundy prochain a Courbevoie ; le Samedy sera pass? ainsi j'esp?re que vous pourrez venir avec nous mais en tout cas nous irons toujours M. Daubenton et moy. J'ai eu comme les autres le livre en question avec une lettre que j'ai reconnue pour etre circulaire mais ? laquelle j'ai, ? ce que je crois, r?pondu diff?rement des autres". Nous d?duisons la date de 1749 du titre donn? par Buffon ? La Condamine, "Directeur de l'Acad?mie des Sciences" (Cf. Sturdy, Science and Social Status. The Members of the Acad?mie Des Sciences, 1995 p. 423) ; La Condamine ne fut ?lu au poste de Directeur de l'Acad?mie qu'une seule fois, en 1749, ? la suite de Bouguer. ? cette date, ce dernier publia La figure de la terre, ouvrage dans lequel il donnait les r?sultats, ?tablis avec La Condamine, de leurs travaux r?alis?s lors de leur mission g?od?sique men?e ? Quito au P?rou pour mesurer le degr? d'un arc de m?ridien ? proximit? de l'Equateur. Il pourrait s'agir du "livre" dont fait mention Buffon dans la pr?sente lettre. (Notons aussi qu'en 1749 parait le premier volume de l'Histoire Naturelle de Buffon.) Buffon et La Condamine ?taient des amis de jeunesse : Buffon lui permit d'obtenir un si?ge ? l'Acad?mie Fran?aise en 1760, et La Condamine lui donna, en 1745, de son retour du P?rou, des centaines d'objets d'histoire naturelle.

R?aumur, ce savant physicien-naturaliste ? l'esprit curieux, s'int?ressa tout autant ? la m?tallurgie (son apport est essentiel dans la d?couverte de l'acier), ? am?liorer le thermom?tre ? alcool invent? par l'anglais Robert Hooke, ? l'entomologie qu'? l'ing?nierie agricole. Son "art de faire ?clore" constitue un bon exemple d'empirisme et de r?alisme scientifique : l'auteur tire profit, pour l'?laboration de ces innovations, de r?alit?s courantes. Ainsi, il propose de cr?er des fours, afin de faire arriver ? terme des oeufs sans l'intervention de poules, soit en utilisant les nombreuses r?serves de fumier, soit en s'accaparant de la chaleur inexploit?e des fours de verrerie et de boulangerie, ou m?me des fours domestiques. Dans un second temps, il parvient ? concevoir la conception d'un ?levage de poussins au sein d'une "poussini?re" o? la pr?sence des m?res seraient suppl?es par une couveuse inanim?e contre laquelle les nouveau-n?s et jeunes poussins viendraient se r?chauffer. 15 gravures hors-texte et 10 vignettes illustrent de sch?mas pr?cis les d?veloppements th?oriques.

Elle figure une palette de peintre et sert à démonter que, grâce aux quatre couleurs dont Gautier se sert avec sa technique d'impression en quatre plaques en manière noire, il peut suppléer à toutes les autres couleurs. Gautier est ici à un point de sa carrière où il se targue d'être un scientifique de premier ordre et où il multiplie des publications dans lesquelles il se justifie : ainsi, il se convainc de la supériorité de sa technique d'impression face à celle de Jacob Christoph Le Blon et il réfute la théorie de Newton sur la lumière et la couleurs, qui avait permis à son maître d'élaborer le système d'impression en trois couleurs. En jouant sur tous les fronts, il s'essouflera toutefois : "Il se mêle de tout avec une naïveté et une prétention qui finissent par toucher tant son besoin de légitimation est universel" (Anatomie de la couleurs).

ALEMBERT, Jean Le Rond d'
Four folding engraved plates. xxxviii, [2], 184 pp. 4to, cont. mottled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: David l'aîné, 1749. First edition of one of Alembert's most important books. "During the late 1740's, d'Alembert, Clairaut, and Euler were all working on the famous three-body problem, with varying success. D'Alembert's interest in celestial mechanics thus led him, in 1749, to publish a masterly work, the Recherches sur la Précession des Equinoxes.The precession of the equinoxes, a problem previously attacked by Clairaut, was very difficult. D'Alembert's method was similar to Clairaut's but he employed more terms in his integration of the equation of motion and arrived at a solution more in accord with the observed motion of the earth. He was rightly proud of his book."-D.S.B., I, p. 113. A very fine copy and scarce on the market. From the library of Marchese Giulio Stanga Carlo Trecco (d. 1832), amateur mathematician and physicist who formed a large collection of scientific instruments, with his shelfmark label at head of spine. ?

Le présent ouvrage, basé sur plusieurs journaux tenus par des officiers du Centurion, fut traduit en français et en allemand et connut un grand succès, tant dans le milieu maritime que dans le milieu littéraire de l'époque. Le voyage d'Anson fut un désastre sur le plan humain, puisque sur 2 000 hommes embarqués, seuls 188 revinrent.

Osaka, Edo, & Kyoto: 1749.First edition of this beautifully illustrated book; the fine woodcuts are by Sukenobu Nishikawa (1671-1750 or -51 or -54), who "counts among the foremost masters of so-called ukiyo-e (primitive) prints. His subject matter, like that of his contemporaries, revolved around images of women walking. These images are stylised, lending the rhythmic movement of the sumptuous robes an almost sculptural effect. Nishikawa also did many book illustrations...Nishikawa founded a whole school, and according to his family archives Harunobu (1725-1770) was a follower of his."-Oxford Art Online.This work is concerned with the education of women in its widest sense, combining knowledge with taste. Four types of girls' "play" are described and illustrated; each providing instruction in behavior and ethics.The fine woodcut frontispiece depicts a young woman reading a book, surrounded symbols of knowledge and refinement: bookshelves and brushes for calligraphy. Her clothes and hairstyle are appropriate.The first volume is concerned with dolls (hina). In Japan, dolls are not for play but have high spiritual value, which offer girls preparation for adulthood and marriage.

WALBEEK, Willem.
A carefully planned and skilfully executed calligraphic copy-book, including a calligraphic title-page and colophon. Although it was made by a student, Willem Walbeek, over a period of 2½ months in one academic year, it is not merely a daily exercise book. It has the appearance of a writing master's copy-book and Walbeek probably produced and presented it to demonstrate his mastery. Most of the texts on the rectos are 2- to 4-line proverbs and aphorisms in verse, some about penmanship, other of a religious or moral nature. Most of the examples are executed in a round-hand sloped cursive script, with a few in upright cursive, roman capitals (occasionally with some minuscules), textura, fraktur and some decorative gothic hands.With two leaves removed (possibly by Walbeek himself), the ink shows through on most leaves, there are some water stains, and the head of the loosely inserted leaf is tattered, but the calligraphic samples are otherwise in good condition. The spine of the wrapper is tattered. A manuscript copy-book produced by a talented young student.
