Very good condition of the block. Needs new binding. Henry Coley (18 October 1633 – 30 April 1704) was an astrologer and mathematician, and amanuensis of William Lilly.nColey was born, as shown in an inscription round a portrait of him by Robert White, found in some of his works, on 18 October 1633 in Oxford. His father was a joiner. In 1648 he became a clerk in the Parliamentary army; in 1654 he moved to London and worked as a ladies' tailor in Gray's Inn Lane. In 1656 he married and they had one child; in 1660, after his wife's death, he married again; their son born in 1661 died soon after birth. He taught himself mathematics, astrology, Latin and French. From 1663 he lived in Baldwins Gardens, where he taught astrology and mathematics, and received clients. By the 1670s he had a flourishing practice.nIn 1669 he published Clavis Astrologiæ Elimata; or a Key to the whole Art of Astrology, new filed and polished. It was well received. A second and enlarged edition was published in 1676; it was dedicated to Elias Ashmole, and included a tribute by William Lilly. In 1672, following the success of Clavis, he published the first number of his almanac, and it appeared annually until his death.nColey acted as William Lilly's amanuensis from 1677, when the latter was stricken with the illness of which he eventually died. The editor of Lilly's Autobiography tells us: "His judgments and observations for the succeeding years till his death were all composed by his directions, Mr. Coley coming to Hersham the beginning of every summer, and stayed there till by conference with him he had despatched them for the press; to whom at these opportunities he communicated his way of judgment and other 'Arcana.'"nnLilly constantly makes reference in his works to Coley's merit as a man and as a professor of mathematics and occult science. On his death in 1681, Lilly bequeathed to him his almanac Merlini Anglici Ephemeris, or Astrological Judgment for the Year, which had reached its thirty-sixth year of publication; from 1681 it was issued by Coley "according to the method of Mr. Lilly."nnAfter Lilly's death, Coley continued to publish his predictions, as for instance, The great and wonderful Predictions of that late famous Astrologer, William Lilly, Mr. Partridge, and Mr. Coley concerning this present year 1683. Coley attained considerable distinction as a mathematician: we are told by his almanac that he taught "arithmetic, vulgar, decimal, and logarithmical, geometry, trigonometry, astronomy, navigation, the use of the celestial and terrestrial globes, dialling, surveying, gaging, measuring, and the art of astrology in all its branches," at Baldwins Gardens. He corrected and enlarged Joseph Moxon's Mathematics made easy (London, 1692), and also William Forster's Arithmetic, or that useful art made easie (London, 1686). He died in London on 30 April 1704. (Wikipedia)nnWilliam Lilly (11 May [O.S. 1 May] 1602 – 9 June 1681) has been described as "the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century". Born the son of a yeoman farmer in Leicestershire, Lilly travelled to London as a youth to take up a servant's position. Seven years later he secured his fortune by marrying his former master's widow, allowing him the leisure to study astrology. In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts,and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year.nnLilly's autobiography, published towards the end of his life in 1681, at the request of his patron Elias Ashmole, gives candid accounts of the political events of his era, and biographical details of contemporaries that are unavailable elsewhere. It was described, in the late 18th century, as "one of the most entertaining narratives in our language", in particular for the historical portrayal it leaves of men like John Dee, Simon Forman, John Booker, Edward Kelley, including a whimsical first meeting of John Napier and Henry Briggs, respective co-inventors of the logarithm and Briggsian logarithms, and for its curious tales about the effects of crystals and the appearance of Queen Mab. In it, Lilly describes the friendly support of Oliver Cromwell during a period in which he faced prosecution for issuing political astrological predictions. He also writes about the 1666 Great Fire of London, and how he was brought before the committee investigating the cause of the fire, being suspected of involvement because of his publication of images, 15 years earlier, which depicted a city in flames surrounded by coffins.nnLilly was a controversial character who was both aided and abetted by powerful friends and enemies. He attracted the attention of many members of Parliament, through the support of Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, (to whom he dedicated his Christian Astrology), but also accused Members of Parliament of engineering charges against him in 1651. To his supporters he was an "English Merlin"; to his detractors he was a "juggling wizard and imposter". He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition. (William Lilly)

        (The Marine Counterparts to HomannÂ’s Elephant, Rhino and Crocodile Broadsides: the Whales, the Saw-Fish and the Narwhale). - Historia Animantium marinorum iconographica [...] Abbildliche Geschichte der See-Thiere, und zwar derselben I. besondere Vorstellung, in welcher die Walfische nach ihren Arthen, Figur [...] vor Augen gestellt werden. & II. Vorstellung, in welcher eine Art Walfische, nebst ihren zwey Feinden, dem Seege Fisch und Narwal zu sehen sind.

      Nuremburg, Homann Heirs, no date on first leaf, the second dated 1752.. Handcoloured copper engraved broadsides. I. 20.5 x 23.5 inches, II. 19.5 x 21 inches. Professionally restored and laid down on old paper for the purpose of reenforcing the fragile paper structure. Some previous storage folds still visible but undisturbing, some light browning to paper in places. First edition, very rare. – Nissen, ZBI 1990. Together with the three separately published broadsides on terrestial animals (elephant, rhino and crocodile – see Nissen, ZBI 1989 for the rhino) which were grouped under the collective title ‘Abbildliche Geschichte der ausländischen LandthiereÂ’, the offered broadsides, published separately as well, form their marine counterparts. They illustrate the natural history of some species of whales and other curious marine animals and were directed to an audience which on the one hand – at least in Central Europe – neither had the chance to see these animals in nature nor in travelling menageries or game reserves, but on the other hand was well aware of them because of body parts and sometimes even whole skelletons were commonly kept in pharmacies, kunstkammers and natural cabinets. While these naturalia so oftenly became part of an exotic-folklore phantasy, HomannÂ’s broadsides were one of the first attempts to provide a scientifically more accurate knowledge of them to the wider public.

        Africa Performed by the Sr. Danville Under the Patronage of the Duke of Orleans

      - Wall map. Engraving with original outline color. Linen backed. Image measures 38.5 x 37.5 inches. This beautiful large scale map of Africa is from Malachy Postlethwayt's The Universal Dictionary of Trade and Commerce and represents the glory days of British colonialism and seamanship. Comments are in a conversational format throughout the map. For example, a comment near Ascension Island in the Atlantic says that it was a place English mariners left their letters in corked bottles. Edition is undetermined; there were four official editions of Trade and Commerce: 1752, 1755, 1766, 1774. Engraved by Emanuel Bowen. Good condition but original color outlining is faint. Mounted on linen. The obscure 18th century cartographer Mr. Bolton may also be referred to as Solomon and this is one of the maps Tooley's attributes to him.

        Luz y metodo debotisimo para saber andar la via sacra

      1752 - Unrecorded Mexican theological work manuscript. 1752. [Mexico]. In 12mo (148 x 98 mm). 2 [blank] + 56 ff. + 2 [blank]. Contemporary morocco gilt, minor wear. Manuscript in ink on paper, slightly cropped, internally clean. 3,200 $ A handsome Mexican colonial manuscript on the Stations of the Cross apparently unpublished. The author, Matias Dieguez, was a Spanish-born Priest and missionary of Mexico, author of at least two other books, one the Espejo de Luz, que deshace las tinieblas de la ignorancia, y hace ver con su luz los engaños de la vanidad y soberbia : descubre, y enseña a las mugeres, y todo genero de personas entregadas loca, y ciegamente à trages, y vanidades profanas, el camino mas solido, y verdadero para seguridad de sus conciencias, (1748), published in Mexico by Hogal, and the Desengaño charitativo, canonico, theologico, moral y mistico (1739). The manuscript was written at the Franciscan seminary of San Fernando in Mexico. The full title is "Luz y metodo debotisimo para saber andar la via sacra, lleno de tiernisimos y dolorosos afectos con unos brebes clamores, toques, y desengaños, que como flechas del cielo hieren y penetran el corazon mas endurecido sacado de su librito Antidoto Espiritual"; however, no record appears to exist as per the Antidoto Espiritual.

        Extrait de la Premiere Partie de l'Art de la Guerre

      1752. PUYSEGUR, Jacques Francois de Chastenet de. Extrait de la Premiere Partie de lÂ’Art de la GuerreÂ… Avec des Observations & Réflexions Traitées en Abregé. Paris: Charles-Ant. Jombert and Hochereau, et al., 1752. Tall 12mo, contemporary full brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers with the armorial crest of the House of Bourbon-Penthièvre. $2500.Early edition of the first part of the Art of War, with observations and reflections, beautifully bound in the morocco-gilt armorial binding of the House of Bourbon-Penthiévre.Marshal Jacques François de Chastenet de Puységur (1656-1743) 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 fatherÂ’s classic on war posthumously. Volume II analyzes a hypothetical battle staged between the Seine and the Loire Rivers, and discusses several actual campaigns conducted by PuységurÂ’s predecessor, the Vicomte de Turenne, Marshal General of France (Henri de la Tour dÂ’Auvergne). First published in 1748 in folio format. Brunet IV:989. This book bears the contemporary binding of the House of Bourbon-Penthièvre. The House of Bourbon-Penthièvre was an illegitimate branch of the House of Bourbon, therefore descending from the Capetian dynasty. It was founded by the duc de Penthièvre, the only child and heir of the comte de Toulouse, the youngest illegitimate son of Louis XIV of France and the marquise de Montespan, and his wife, Marie Victoire de Noailles, the daughter of Anne Jules de Noailles, duc de Noailles. Suggested provenance in pencil and ink on front endpaper.Interior unusually lovely, only slight rubbing to armorial binding, gilt quite bright. A beautiful copy in about-fine condition.

        Lunario de un siglo, Que comenzava en su original por Enero del año de 1740, y acaba en Diciembre del año de 1841. En que se compreheden ciento y un año cumplidos. Contiene los aspectos principales de Sol, y Luna, esto es las Conjunciones, Oposiciones, y Quartos de la Luna con el Sol, según sus movimientos verdaderos; y la noticias de los Eclipses de ambos Luminares, que serán visibles por todo el Siglo en estas Missiones de la Compañía de Jesús en la Provincia del Paraguay. Regulada, y aligada la hora de los aspectos y eclipses al Meridiano del Pueblo de los esclarecidos Martyres San Cosme, y San Damian

      1752 - An entirely Paraguayan scientific production of the 18th century; exceedingly rare Lunario, the only made on the Jesuit Missions of Paraguay. N.d. [1752]. Barcelona. Pablo Nadal. In 8vo (195 mm x 145 mm). 8 ff. + 196 + 1 [blank]. Original vellum, lightly bowed and soiled. First two folios with short tears, not causing loss, some corners dog-eared, minor toning, else fine. Suarez (1679 – 1750) was born in Santa Fe (Argentina); what little is known today about him is thanks to Jesuit historians and scholars Juan Salaberry and William Furlon Cardiff. Son to Antonio Suarez Altamarino and Maria de Garay, his birth is recorded in the archive of the Metropolitan Church of Santa Fe for the year 1682. After being admitted to the Society of Jesus in 1695, he goes to Cordoba to study Philosophy and Theology; from there, Suarez is destined to Paraguay, and shortly a Priest at the missions of San Cosme and San Damian, then to Itapua and Santa Maria la Mayor. Suarez dedicated his life to living amongst the Guarani’s, becoming well aware of their customs and way of life. His masterpiece, this Lunario, or astronomical calendar, is the sole work of of its kind to have been entirely created in the missions of Paraguay; furthermore, Suarez himself crafted many of the instruments necessary for its confection. It contains the movements of the Sun and the Moon, as they will be seen in the Jesuit Missions of Paraguay, from 1740 until 1841. The first edition was published in Lisbon, undated, however it is given priority to this one, the second edition. Each folio deals with a year, with a table on recto detailing every month and an explanation of the expected astronomical phenomena for said year [“Nota Vulgares”, “Temporas”, “Fiestas Movibles” y “Eclipse”]. Provenance: several manuscript notes on last blank, one being a note from Pedro Montero, and several other ownership inscriptions, all in Spanish. Sabin, 93296. Palau, 323201. Rare, we could only find 3 copies in the United States (Indiana University, Harvard Houghton Library and Yale University Library). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Studentenstammbuch des Johann Martin Oberländer aus Hildburghausen.

      Jena, 1750-1752. - Quer-8vo (170 x 100 mm). Mit 2 Stammbuchkupfern auf den Innendeckeln. Gedrucktes Titelblatt mit hs. Ergänzung u. 163 fehlerhaft paginierte Bll. mit 276 Einträgen. Goldgepr. und bemalter Pergamentband der Zeit. Das sehr reichhaltige Stammbuch eines Thüringer Theologiestudenten enthält ausschließlich Einträge aus Jena. Unter den Beiträgern, die zum größten Teil in der Matrikel der Universität Jena nachgewiesen werden können, sind vor allem Theologen, aber auch viele Juristen und einige Mediziner zu finden. Unter den zahlreichen namhaften Persönlichkeiten seien genannt Wilhelm Hieronymus Bach (1730-54), ein Verwandter Johann Sebastian Bachs aus dem Erfurter Zweig der Familie, Johann Adam Gottlob Barnickel (1733-87), später Rechtskonsulent der Vogtländischen Ritterschaft und Besitzer einer großen Bibliothek, Johann Michael Degner (1719-80), Rektor des Schweinfurter Gymnasiums und auch durch naturwissenschaftliche Arbeiten hervorgetreten, Johann Jakob Fröbel (1730-1802), der Vater Friedrich Fröbels, Friedrich Ludwig August Held (1732-74), schwarzburgischer Stadt- und Amtsphysikus, Johann Stephan Müller (1730-68), Professor der Theologie in Gießen, Johann Christoph Rasche (1733-1805), bekannt durch seine numismatischen Schriften, Johann Christoph Schellenberger (1726-90), Professor der Theologie und Pfarrer der Barfüßergemeinde in Erfurt, und Johann Georg Hieronymus Weingärtner (1733-93), ebenfalls Professor der Theologie und Oberpfarrer in Erfurt (vollständige Liste auf Anfrage). - Besonders interessant sind die gelegentlichen handschriftlichen Bemerkungen des Stammbuchhalters zu seinen Kommilitonen. Oberländer fügte nicht nur die späteren Tätigkeiten oder Sterbedaten seiner Studienkollegen an, sondern gibt mehrfach auch launige Kommentare ab. So schreibt er zu Johann Christian Faustus (geb. 1728), der als Feldprediger nach Kursk gegangen ist, "jagt Zobel in Sibirien". Faustus ist noch 1781 in Kursk nachweisbar. Andere Mitstudenten charakterisiert er als "verdrüßlichen Hauptmann von Kapernaum", "tiefsinnige[n] Mathematicus" oder konstatiert: "Anjetzo ein hypochondrischer Candidat, hat aber eine sehr reiche Mutter". Die beiden Kupfer auf den Innendeckeln zeigen das Collegium Jenense und den Jenaer Markt (letzteres mit Feuchtigkeitsspuren und Tintenkritzelei). - Einband stärker berieben und bestoßen, Innengelenke gebrochen, Buchblock vom Einband gelöst. Innen gering gebräunt, gelegentlich etwas wasser- oder fingerfleckig, vereinzelt kl. Randeinrisse. Mehrere Bll. entfernt, darunter 1 Registerblatt zu Beginn.

In 1733, at the age of six, he was made a field marshal, and the next year, a lieutenant general. In 1740, he received the Order of the Toison dÂ’Or from the king, and in 1742, the Order of the Holy Spirit. He served in the military under his maternal uncle, the Duke of Noailles, and fought brilliantly at Dettingen in 1743 and Fontenoy in 1745. Penthièvre was one of the wealthiest men of his day and probably the richest in France. He was known to be very charitable. Bibliographers variously attribute authorship of Le Comte de Dunois to Mme. Desjardins, Mme. de Villedieu, Comtesse Henriette de Murat or to Pierre dÂ’Ortigue de Vaumorière.

Interesting collection of autograph signed letters containing notes on personal, political and maritime matters, written by the French Grand Admiral Comte Laurent Jean François Truguet (10 January 1752-26 December 1839), knight of the Grand-Cross of the Legion d'Honneur. In 1765 he entered the Navy and took part in numerous battles in the service of the Ancien Regime. Major de Vaisseau from 1784, he cooperated on the tasks assigned to M. Choiseuil-Gouffier, ambassador to Constantinople, and was charged with instructing the Ottomans in the arts of fortification, artillery, naval architecture, etc. As an enthusiastic Republican, he supported the Revolution and was promoted to the rank of rear admiral in 1792. He bombarded Nice, Villefranche and Oneglia. Visiting Corsica, he was received by the Bonaparte family and began a romance with Elisa, sister of the future emperor. In 1804 he took a public stand against the establishment of the Empire in a letter that became historic. This consigned him to five years of severe disgrace. In 1809, however, the Emperor recalled him and gave him the command of the Kingdom of Holland's navy. After the fall of the Empire Truguet returned to Paris where Louis XVIII brought him back into the navy at the head of the naval corps. On the second restoration he was given overall command of the Brest fleet. At the end of the July monarchy, Truguet was elevated to the post of Grand Admiral, the highest naval honour.Important collection in good condition.

        Rome sauvée, tragédie. De M. de Voltaire. Réprésentée pour la première fois à Paris par les Comédiens français ordinaire du roy, le jeudi 24 février 1752.

      Chez Etienne Bourdeaux, A Berlin 1752 - In-12 de (2)-106 pp., percaline beige, pièce de titre en long, monogramme doré MH , frappé en coin sur le premier plat (reliure du XIXe siècle). Première édition, non autorisée. Le titre porte en épigraphe la citation défectueuse d'un vers de Virgile : « Vincit [sic pour Vincet] amor Patriae. En 1752 Voltaire séjournait encore à Berlin, invité du roi de Prusse, et remaniat plusieurs fois le texte de sa pièce. La tragédie fut représentée pour la première fois au Théâtre-Français le 24 février 1752 ; Frédéric II ayant désiré la voir jouée, les princes et princesses de la famille royale y jouèrent les rôles. La deuxième édition fut imprimée à la suite de Supplément au Siècle de Louis quatorze (Dresde, 1753), précédée d'une préface et d'un avis au lecteur dans lequel Voltaire se plaint de deux éditions de 1752 : « Cette pièce est fort différente de celle qui parut il y a plus d'un an en 1752 à Paris sous le même titre. Des copistes l'avaient transcrite aux représentations, et l'avaient toute défigurée. Leurs omissions étaient remplies par des mains étrangères ; il y avait une centaine de vers qui n'étaient pas de l'auteur. On fit de cette copie infidèle une édition furtive : cette édition était défectueuse d'un bout à l'autre ; et on ne manqua pas de l'imiter en Hollande avec beaucoup plus de fautes encore. L'auteur a soigneusement corrigé la présente édition, faite à Leipsik par son ordre et sous ses yeux ; il y a même changé des scènes entières ». L'exemplaire est truffé de notes manuscrites d'une écriture uniforme du temps ; ce sont des corrections, compléments et ajouts dont la source est l'éditon publiée en 1753.

A blind stamped cartouche to the centre of both front and rear boards and five raised bands to the spine each with a blind stamped decoration in the compartments matching the devices to the border inter-sections of the boards. All edges gilt. Very tight in a fine condition with marbled end-papers. PLEASE EMAIL FOR PHOTOS. The first 3 front leaves of the book are pasted in from the original binding and have manuscript notes of people and events relating to the Borradaile family. [originaly of Wigton, Cumberland 1759]. Many family connections in short notes were added at later dates including some small obituary notes from later newspapers. John, a tanner by trade, and Mary Borradaile of Wigton ran a Cloth factory in Wigton and their two sons, Richardson and William [1750-1831] ran a London hat and fur business before becoming major traders and shipping owners. They were East India Company directors with Richardson becoming an MP for Newcasstle Upon Tyne in 1826. This family bible from Wigton presumably was owned by John Borradailes [1725-1783] and repaired by his wealthy descendants in this superb Riviere binding in London a hundred years later.. Hardback. Fine. large 8vo.

        Traité d'optique où l'on donne la théorie de la lumière dans le système newtonien avec de nouvelles solutions des principaux problèmes de dioptrique et de catoptrique

      Paris, Durand et Pissot, 1752. 1752, 1752, , petit in-4 de (2), V, (1), 202 pages (mal paginées 192), puis (6) pages et 7 planches, demi-veau fauve de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle, dos lisse avec une pièce de titre, Première édition de ce brillant commentaire mathématique de l'optique de Newton. L'auteur y propose de nombreuses "solutions analytiques" à certaines propositions qui furent énoncées par Newton, sans démonstration. Il analyse notamment avec une grande rigueur mathématique la fameuse question de l'arc-en-ciel. "In his Treatise on optics Courtivron assailed the Cartesian concept of light and championed the Newtonian. He did not servilely follow Newton, for in his view color results from differences in speed rather than from those in weight. Furthermore, in affirming that dense mediums slow down light corpuscles, he made use of Fermat's principle of least time, recently revived by Maupertuis" (DSB III p. 454). Exemplaire rogné un peu court, mais à l'intérieur propre, portant l'ex-libris imprimé d'Henri Viellard et une note manuscrite ancienne qui nous indique que l'exemplaire aurait appartenu au baron de Sénarmont. Gray (G.J.), a bibliography of the works of Sir Isaac Newton, together with a list of Books illustrating his works, n°202 (London, 1966) Walis (P.&R.), Newton and Newtoniana, 220.7

        Desmographie ou description des ligamens du corps humain

      1752 - de (4), XVI, 144 pages et 11 Paris, Durand, 1752, in-8, de (4), XVI, 144 pages et 11 planches, plein veau marbré de l'époque, filet à froid d'encadrement sur les plats, dos à 5 nerfs orné de motifs floraux, tranches marbrées, 11 planches repliées présentent 82 petites figures en noir de tous les ligaments du corps humain, connus à l'époque. Première édition française, due à Pierre Tarin du Syndesmologia, sive historia ligamentorum corporis humani (Saint-Pétersbourg, 1742) de Weitbrecht. Comme nous l'apprend le traducteur français dans son "Avertissement", il s'agit, en réalité, d'un "extrait" et il ne faut donc pas s'étonner si un in-4 assez considérable se voit réduit à un petit in-8 : "Je me déterminai donc à en tirer tout ce qui est purement anatomique pour me servir de base dans les leçons que j'avois à faire sur ces parties [.]. J'ai enfin destiné cet Extrait à l'impression pour qu'il devint d'une utilité plus étendue ; et j'ai aimé mieux ne donne qu'une description purement anatomique des Ligamens [.] J'ai fait réduire à moitié les figures, afin de ne point jetter les Etudians dans de trop grands frais en multipliant les planches". Après celles de Winslow, les descriptions de Weitbrecht sont considérées, dès le XVIIIe siècle par Tarin notamment, puis par ses successeurs au XIXe, et aujourd'hui par les spécialistes de l'histoire de la médecine, comme d'une absolue nouveauté et d'une grande fiabilité : "one of the first attempts to describe the ligaments as a unit of anatomy. Many similar descriptions were repeated in detail in the middle of the nineteenth century by anatomists who were apparently not aware that Weitbrecht was the first to describe them. Ligaments in the knee joint that bear the eponyms of Wrisberg, Humphry, Robert, and perhaps others, were originally well described by Weitbrecht" (Hagelin, Kinetic Jottings, p. 84). Pierre Tarin, médecin et anatomiste français, dirigea les parties ayant trait à l'Anatomie et à la Chirurgie pour l'Encyclopédie, et rédigea quelques monographies d'anatomie générale (des Adversaria Aantomica en 1750, puis un Dictionnaire anatomique, une Myographie et une Ostéographie, en 1753). Étiquette ex-dono de la bibliothèque des Liouville et cachet annulé de l'Institut catholique de Paris. Coiffes arasées, une charnière en partie fendue, coupes et coins usés. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
