        A Letter from Mr. Franklin to Mr. Peter Collinson, F. R. S. concerning the Effects of Lightning WITH A Letter of Benjamin Framklin, Esq; to Mr. Peter Collinson, F. R. S. concerning an electrical Kite

      [London]: [ C. Davis ], 1752. First Edition. Disbound. Very Good. First Edition. 7 1/4 x 9 /14. We offer 2 extracts from "Philosophical Transactions", Vol. 47. For the Years 1751 and 1752 which include the first printing of Franklin's Kite Experiment which proved that lightning is an electrical discharge. Effects of Lightning is found on pages 289-291, and the Electrical Kite is found on pages 565-567. Disbound. "The most dramatic result of Franklin's researches was the proof that lightening is really an electrical phenomenon. Others had made such a suggestion before him - even Newton himself - but it was he who provided the experimental proof. In 1752 he flew a kite in a thunderstorm and attached a key to its string. From this he collected electrical charges in a Leiden jar and showed that atmospheric and frictional or machine-made electricity are the same. He went on to propose the fixing of iron rods at the top of buildings, masts of ships, etc., from which he conducted the electric charges they collected from lightening into the wet subsoil - the invention of the lightening conductor." "His reputation as a scientist was immediately established by the publication of the results of his researches in a series of letters addressed to Peter Collinson, a London merchant and naturalist, in 1751; and the Experiments and Observations [ which collected all the Collinson letters not just those offered here ] remains the most important scientific book of eighteenth-century America." (Printing and the Mind of Men 2nd edition, #199).

In 1670 he became prebendary and in 1672 dean of Canterbury. That latter year he was alao elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1675 he edited John Wilkins's Principles of Natural Religion, completing what was left unfinished of it, and in 1682 his Sermons. Along with Burnet, Tillotson attended William Russell, Lord Russell on the scaffold in 1683. In 1684, he wrote a Discourse against Transubstantiation. He afterwards enjoyed the friendship of Lady Russell, and it was partly through her that he obtained so much influence with Princess Anne, who followed his advice in regard to the settlement of the crown on William of Orange. He possessed the special confidence of William and Mary, and was made clerk of the closet to the king in March 1689. It was chiefly through his advice that the king appointed an ecclesiastical commission for the reconciliation of the Dissenters. In August of this year he was appointed by the chapter of his cathedral to exercise the archiepiscopal jurisdiction of the province of Canterbury during the suspension of Sancroft. He was also about the same time named dean of St Paul's. Soon afterwards he was elected to succeed Sancroft; but accepted the promotion with extreme reluctance, and it was deferred from time to time, at his request, until April 1691. In 1693 he published four lectures on the Socinian controversy, partly to clear his own name from charges of sympathy with Socinianism in his previous associations with Thomas Firmin, Stephen Nye and others. His attempts to reform certain abuses of the Church, especially that of clerical non-residence, awakened much ill-will, and of this the Jacobites took advantage, pursuing him to the end of his life with insult and reproach. He died on 22 November 1694. For his manuscript sermons Tillotson's widow received 2500 guineas. Ralph Barker edited some 250 of them together with the "Rule of Faith" (1695-1704). In 1752 an edition appeared in 3 vols., with Life by Thomas Birch, compiled from Tillotson's original papers and letters. Various selections from his sermons and works have been published separately. AMS Press, New York, published a modern edition of his works in the 1980s. In his home town of Sowerby, a statue of Tillotson still exists in St. Peter's church and an avenue is named after him in the lower end of the town.

        Franc. Sanctii, Brocensis, in Inclyta Salmanticensi Academia Primarii Rhetorices & Graecae Linguae Doctoris, Minerva, Seu De Causis Linguae Latinae Commentarius

      Amstelaedami : Tournes 1752 - New edition. Octavo. Frontis, [15], 862p, 32p. Latin. Bound in contemporary full leather. Gilt lettering on red Moroccan spine label. 5 raised bands. Tight binding and cover. Marbled endpages. Page ends washed red. Minimal shelfwear. Owners stamp on title page of former American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church and Bishop of Cleveland, Ignatius Frederick Horstmann. Clean, unmarked pages. Palau 294882-4. CCPB 890213-5. Francisco Sanchez de las Brozas, also known as El Brocense, and in Latin as Franciscus Sanctius Brocensis, was a Spanish philologist and humanist. The importance of the ideas of el Brocense in the reform of classical studies in Spain is, in the mid-16th century, comparable to that of Antonio de Nebrija at the beginning of the century. He is mostly remembered for his Minerva sive de causis linguae Latinae (Salamanca: Renaut, 1587), a Latin grammar in four books or sections (study of the parts of speech, the noun, the verb, and the figures) which, subjecting the study of language to reason, is one of the very first epistemological grammars and made him a European celebrity for several generations. While the first grammarians of Humanism (Lorenzo Valla or Antonio de Nebrija) were still writing normative grammars based on the usus scribendi of the ancient authors, el Brocense took ratio (reason) as the cornerstone of his whole grammatical system. He acknowledged no other authority than reason and took to its ultimate consequences the logic of grammatical study. He was determined to make everything fit within rational schemes, and granted in his grammatical interpretation a very important role to ellipsis, an essential tool of his system. In that search for rational explanations, he stepped beyond the limits of the Latin language to go as far as to foreshadow the universal grammar which is implicit in all languages. He is thus a most important milestone towards Port-Royal Grammar and Noam Chomsky's generative grammar. His Minerva was very successful, and had had 15 editions by 1761. The dense scholia by Scioppius appeared in the mid-17th century and would accompany the Minerva until the 19th century. The notes by Perizonius were written at the request of a publisher from Franeker in the Netherlands. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ecrit sous la forme de lettres adressées à une correspondante anonyme, c'est le seul ouvrage de l'auteur, le Marquis de Feuquières, qui indique l'avoir composé d'après ses conversations avec une femme à laquelle il rend un hommage appuyé dans la préface. "C'est dans les fréquens entretiens que j'ai eus sur l'imagination avec une femme aimable et sensée, que j'ai puisé les réflexions suivantes. Heureux, si j'ai pu les exposer avec une partie des grâces que pretoîent à ses discours le feu de son génie, la vivacité de son esprit, et la solidité de sa raison!". 2). Edition Originale. Ouvrage posthume dans lequel le littérateur Nicolas Boindin (1676-1751) dévoilait la véritable paternité, selon lui, des fameux couplets de 1710 attribués à Jean-Baptiste Rousseau et qui contenaient d'odieuses injures contre certains hommes de lettres et notables, avec à des vers blasphématoires contre la religion. 4 fac-similés dépliants hors-texte. Intéressant recueil, qui contient également un exemplaire incomplet des 'Etrennes aux Dames' de Musier (auxquelles manquent 2ff. dans la seconde partie). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

DER DEUTSCHE HEISTER EIN MEILENSTEIN DER CHIRURGIE! - Selten wohlerhaltene deutsche Ausgabe des berühmten Hauptwerkes, in der letzten noch zu seinen Lebzeiten erschienen Ausgabe, mit der vollständigen Folge der Kupfertafeln in einem Halbledereinband der Zeit. - - Lorenz Heister (1683-1758), Begründer der wissenschaftlichen Chirurgie in Deutschland wurde geboren in Frankfurt, studierte bei Ruysch, Albinus u. Boerhaave. Er war Professor der Anatomie und Chirurgie in Altdorf bei Nürnberg und Helmstedt. Seine Privatbibliothek umfasste 12.000 Bände und ca. 500 chirurgische Instrumente, teilweise aus Silber gefertigt, waren in seinem Besitz. - Im Gegensatz zu den lateinischen und fremdsprachlichen Ausgaben sind alle deutschen Ausgaben selten und gesucht. - Die gründliche Bearbeitung der ganzen Chirurgie von der einfachen Wundbehandlung bis zur größten Operation, und die sorgfältige Darstellung des gesamten Instrumentariums, war ein bedeutender Fortschritt. Der große Erfolg seines Werkes ist daran ersichtlich, das seine Chirurgie in zahlreichen Auflagen erschienen, in vielen Sprachen übersetzt, einer ganzen Medizinergeneration dienlich war. Es ist eines der ersten vollständigen Handbücher der Chirurgie und enthält einige der schönsten chirurgischen Kupferstiche der medizinischen Literatur überhaupt. Eine ganze Reihe heute noch gebräuchlicher Instrumente werden hier vorgestellt. - - - First published in 1719, Heister's work on surgery became a standard text book and went through many editions. It was translated into Latin, English, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. Heister was the leading surgeon of the time and the founder of scientific surgery in Germany. - - W.

        An impartial examination of a pamphlet, intitled, Considerations on several proposals lately made for the better maintenance of the poor: with some serious and occasional animadversions on this important subject. To which are annexed, copies of the Considerations; and of another pamphlet, intitled, Remarks on the laws relating to the poor.

      London: printed in the year, 1752 - 44;vi,26;vii,[1],31,[1]p.,; 8vo. 'Considerations on several proposals . ' is by Charles Gray and dated 1751, and 'Remarks on the laws relating to the poor' is by William Hay; both have separate pagination and register. Half calf, marbled boards. Bound with Higgs 339 (Just Creed's Impartial Examination): "Copies (of the two pamphlets reviewed) not with this tract nor with any I have seen" Professor Foxwell. Goldsmiths' 8747. Kress 5196. "Does not include 'Considerations' or 'Remarks'". Many of the copies located in ESTC are found without the two accompanying pamphlets. A most unusual publication in which Creed issued his answer along with copies of the two pamphlets it considers. In a short preface Creed explains that he has issued Gray's pamphlet and Hay's answer, side by side, after his own comments, to show how unfairly Gray has been treated by Hay in the discussion. At issue was the question of county versus parochial administration of the poor law; Creed favoured the former, Gray the latter. The tracts by Hay and gray appeared in several different editions but they are here issued as an appendix to Creed's pamphlet. Some copies of the Hay and Gray with the paginations as here are also recorded separately. As seen above Higgs records the Creed on its own with the comment "Copies (i.e. of the Gray and Hay) not with this tract (i.e. the Creed) nor with any I have seen," so it does certainly appear that these three pamphlets were also issued separately.
