        Institutiones Calculi Differentialis cum eius Usu in Analysi Finitorum ac Doctrina Serierum

      xxiv, 880 pp. Large 4to, antique half-calf & marbled boards, spine gilt. St. Petersburg: Academiae Imperialis Scientiarum, 1755. First edition of Euler's second great contribution to analytical mathematics. "This is the first text-book on the differential calculus which has any claim to be regarded as complete, and it may be said that until recently many modern treatises on the subject are based on it."-Ball, A Short Account of the History of Mathematics, p. 396. "Euler developed the calculus of finite differences in the first chapters of his Institutiones calculi differentialis, and then deduced the differential calculus from it. He established a theorem on homogeneous functions, known by his name, and contributed largely to the theory of differential equations, a subject which had received the attention of I. Newton, G.W. Leibniz, and the Bernoullis, but was still undeveloped."-Cajori, A History of Mathematics, pp. 238-39. Very good copy from the library of Haskell F. Norman with bookplate. Old stamp of the London Institution on title and verso of last leaf. .

Erste Ausgabe. Erste Ausgabe der seltenen Schrift. "Sein praktisches Verständnis der gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Situation, der er sich gegenübersah, war sein größtes Verdienst" (Schumpter, Geschichte der ökon. Analyse, S. 233). In seinen 'Questions' zeigt er am Beispiel des französischen Handels in der Levante die Vorteile des Freihandels und des Bevölkerungswachstums. "Forbonnais showed himself in other respects so sound an economist and financier, and so distinctly opposed to all crotchets, that he has left behind him a well-deserved reputation. His works are read and quoted even at the present day. He was consulted by all the influential politicians, and by all the great administators of his time."

        The Ship-Builder's Assistant;

      London: Pirnted [sic.] W. and J. Mount, T. Page & Son, , 1755. or, Marine Architecture: Small quarto (199 × 146 mm). Nineteenth-century half calf on marbled boards, red morocco label to the spine, yellow edge-stain. 8 folding plates, tables to the text. A little rubbed, light browning, a few neatly inked additions to the glossary, a neat enough copy. Very good. First published in 1711, numerous changes were made to the various later editions of this popular work, the last of which appeared in 1840. Interestingly, however, the 1840 edition retained the proportions for rigging and the tables of values and scantlings of timber first printed in 1711. See Mariners Mirror,vol. 49, pp. 146-7, for W. Salisbury's detailed account of the various editions of this work: "a mixture of good practical information and rather discursive essays."

Beyond its political interest, it offers a detailed analysis of seventeenth-century maritime law and admiralty jurisdiction at the time when Great Britain was emerging as a major maritime and colonial power. Exton was educated at Cambridge, earning the LL.D. in Civil Law in 1634. He was appointed President of the High Court of Admiralty by Parliament in 1649, and was reappointed by the Duke of York after the Restoration.

        Hoc est, puncta aliquot compendiosa, quae circa gubernationem Reipubl. observanda videntur.,

      Wien, Ghelen, 1755. - Äusserst seltener Nachdruck dieses erstmals 1632 bei Gregor Gelbhaar in Wien erschienenen Fürstenspiegels, der für den österreichischen Hof des 17. Jahrhunderts von großer Bedeutung war. So war man bis zum Erscheinen von Oswald Redlichs Aufsatz „Princeps in compendio. Ein Fürstenspiegel vom Wiener Hofe aus dem 17. Jahrhundert" der Ansicht, Kaiser Ferdinand II. habe dieses Werk selbst für seinen jüngeren Sohn Leopold Wilhelm verfaßt. Als weiterer möglicher Verfasser wurde Wilhelm Lamormaini ins Spiel gebracht, was aber von Redlich ebenfalls für unwahrscheinlich gehalten wird. Jedenfalls ist die Schrift um 1630 im engeren Umkreis des Kaiserhofes entstanden und war von seinem Erscheinen bis zu Joseph II. bei der Prinzenerziehung prägend. - „Der ‚Princeps in compendio‘ - so ist das kleine Werk benannt - ist selbst ein Nachfolger jener Fürstenspiegel, durch die ein junger Herrscher in die theoretischen und praktischen Prinzipien des Regierens eingeführt werden sollte. 1632 war dieses Büchlein zum erstenmal , offenbar in so kleiner Auflage gedruckt worden, daß Peter Lambeck, der Hofbibliothekar Kaiser Leopolds I., im Jahre 1667 um die Bewilligung ansuchte, es neu herausgeben zu dürfen, was 1668 auch geschah. Gottlieb Eucharius Rinck, der Biograph Leopolds, machte einige Jahrzehnte später auf die Bedeutung aufmerksam, die mittlerweile der Princeps in compendio erlangt hatte als ‚diejenige Richtschnur, wonach jetzund alle oesterreichischen Prinzen in der Regierungskunst unterwiesen werden‘ und als das Handbuch des Kaisers ‚seit seiner Regierung‘" (A. Coreth, Pietas Austriaca, S. 9f.). - 1701 erschien eine dt. Übersetzung unter dem Titel „Princeps in compendio, Das ist: etliche kurtze zusammen gefaste Puncte oder Reguln, welche ein Regent bey seiner Regierung zu beobachten nöthig hat". - Die Österreichische Nationalbibliothek besitzt nur den Nachdruck von 1668 und auch sonst ist diese Ausgabe über KVK etc. nicht nachweisbar. - Einband leicht berieben bzw. bestoßen. Oberes Kapital m. winziger Fehlstelle. Vorsatzbl. mit alter Eintragung („Auctor huius libelli fertur Ferdinandus III. [.]"). Titel m. Besitzvermerk. Titel verso m. mont. zeitgen. gest. Exlibris („P.

        (reduced version Fry-Jefferson Map of Virginia): Carte De La Virginie et Du Maryland Dressee...Mrs. Josue Fry et Pierre Jefferson, Par le Sr. Robert de Vaugondy Geographe Ordinaire du Roi

      Paris: Robert De Vaugondy, 1755. This is the second state (according to Verner, Imago Mundi 21:70-94, 1967) of the reduced single sheet French version of the original 4-sheet map. The "Fairfax line" is no longer indicated, nor is the western boundary of Pennsylvania indicated, suggesting that this state of the map appeared around 1780, during the American Revolutionary War era. There are the three scales, and the notation "Avec Privelege 1755." Although the map is dated thus, it is thought to be from a 1757 issue of "Atlas Universel..." This is in very good (or better) condition, on heavy laid paper paper, with minimal outline color, with strong lines. The image measures 48 x 64 cm., with centerfold as issued. "Plate 105" is printed on upper right verso. The Fry-Jefferson map was the first major inland map of Virginia. The full size original was first drafted in manuscript in 1751, and first printed in 1753 by Thomas Jefferys, though very few copies of the latter survive.. Very Good. Map.

        Code de la Nature ou le véritable esprit de ses loix, De tout tems négligéou méconnu.

      Par-Tout (i.e. Paris or Liège), Chez le vrai Sage, 1755. Small 8vo. Lovely contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. And excellent nice, clean, and fresh copy, printed on good paper. Old owner's name to title-page and a bookplate to inside of front board (M. Ph. de Planterose). Title-page printed in red and black and with an engraved vignette. 236, (4) pp.. First edition of this canonical work of revolutionary utopianism, Morelly's main work, which greatly influenced later socialist and communist thought and which constitutes a forerunner of the works of Marx and Engels. The work was published anonymously and the author Étienne-Gabriel Morelly (1717 - 1778) remains a bit of a mystery about whom very little is known. At first, "The Code of Nature" was attributed to Denis Diderot, but other great authors of the day have also been proposed. "The Code of Nature" constitutes an early example of utopian socialist thought, providing a detailed plan for the establishment of a perfect state. It severely criticized the society of the time and proposed a constitution intended to lead to an egalitarian society without property, marriage, church or police. Based upon the principle that man is by nature good and the view that all social and moral ills were consequences of private property, it argues for an egalitarian society in which almost all private property - and thereby all of its pernicious consequences - is eliminated. Due to these radical views, Morelly is considered a significant forerunner of later socialist and communist thinkers, including Marx, Engels, Fourier, Proudhon, Babeuf, etc."The Code of Nature" had in immense impact on contemporary and later thought because it not only constitutes a theoretical utopia, but rather a sound analytical treatise with utopian elements. It reflects a realistic approach to society and includes a legislative program to return the State to a government in accordance with the natural solidarity and affection of humanity in which Morelly believed so strongly. "The Code of Nature" not only influenced later socialist and communist thinkers, it was also avidly discussed by contemporary Enlightenment thinkers such as Lessing, Wieland, Baumgarten, etc., and the work appeared in numerous editions throughout the 18th century.

        De la maniere d'Enseigner et d'Étudier les Belles-Lettres par rapport à l'esprit & au coeur

      Paris: Les Frères Estienne, 1755 - Charles Rollin (January 30, 1661-December 14, 1741) was a French historian and educationist. He was born at Paris. He was the son of a cutler, and at the age of twenty-two was made a master in the Collège du Plessis. In 1694 he was rector of the University of Paris, rendering great service among other things by reviving the study of Greek. He held that post for two years instead of one, and in 1699 was appointed principal of the Collège de Beauvais. Rollin held Jansenist principles, and even went so far as to defend the miracles supposed to be worked at the tomb of François de Paris, commonly known as Deacon Paris. Unfortunately his religious opinions deprived him of his appointments and disqualified him for the rectorship, to which in 1719 he had been re-elected. It is said that the same reason prevented his election to the Académie française, though he was a member of the Academie des Inscriptions. Shortly before his death he protested publicly against the acceptance of the bull Unigenitus. Rollin's literary work dates chiefly from the later years of his life, when he had been forbidden to teach. His once famous Ancient History (Paris, 1730-38), and the less generally read Roman History, which followed it, were avowed compilations, uncritical and somewhat inaccurate. But they instructed and interested generation after generation almost to the present day. A more important work was his Traité des études (Paris, 1726-31). It contains a summary of what was even then a reformed and innovative system of education, advocating a more frequent and extensive use of the vulgar tongue, and discarding the medieval traditions that had lingered in France Nouvelle edition. 2 vols., 8vo. [38], cxiv, 502, [8]; [2], 640, [4] pp. Bound in full contemprary red morocco, gilt spine, contrasting spine labels, a.e.g. Fine. Eighteenth-century bookplate of Charles Smith with his signature dated 1767 on title of each volume. Brunet IV, 1360 (for 1740 ed.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Essai de Psychologie; ou considérations sur les opérations de l'ame, sur l'habitude et sur l'éducation. Auxquelles on a ajouté des Principes philosophiques sur la cause première et sur son effet.

      Londres 1755 - Londres 1755. 8°. XLII, 390p. Reliure pleine veau d'époque, dos a nerfs orné. Quérard I, 408 (avec l amention Londres 1754). - Erste Ausgabe. - Charles Bonnets frühe physische Behinderungen: er war schon als Kind taub geworden, zudem war er schon mit dreissig Jahren nicht mehr in der Lage mikroskopische Studien zu tätigen, was den erfolgreichen Insektenforscher zwang, seine naturwissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse mit den Fragen der Philosophie, vor allem mit der Phänomenologie zu verbinden. So wie seine naturwissenschaftlichen Studien sind auch die philosophisch-psychologischen Texte stark pietistisch geprägt. - Der fingierte Druckort "London" scheint sich aus dem kurzen Vorwort zu erklären in dem der Autor sich an seine ungenannten Freunde richtet, und ihnen seinen Dank ausspricht und das Buch widmet. Bonnet fand in seinen Studien über Abraham Trembley schon um 1740 Anerkennung der Royal Society, die den knapp zwanzigjährigen als Mitglied aufnahm. - Mit gestochenem Exlibris "M. de May d'Huningue"* (Wegmann 4684) auf dem Innendeckel. Sehr schönes fleckenloses Exemplar auf starkem Papier. Sprache: N Reliure pleine veau d'époque, dos a nerfs orné. [Attributes: First Edition]

        ESSAI DE PSYCHOLOGIE. Ou Considerations sur les operations de l'ame, sur l'habitude et sur l'education. Auxquelles on a ajouté des Principes philosophiques sur la cause premiere et sur son effet. Londres, 1755.

      - Prima edizione. Testo francese. Cm.17,3x10,4. Pg.XLII, 390. Legatura ottocentesca in mz.pelle con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso e piatti marmorizzati. Tagli spruzzati. Fregi calcografici. Fresco esemplare, assai ben conservato. Discendente da famiglia benestante, Charles Bonnet (Ginevra, 1720-1793), dopo gli studi in giurisprudenza si dedicò alla professione forense, ma i suoi interessi furono rivolti principalmente alla storia naturale e alla filosofia. Fu lui, studiando la riproduzione degli afidi, a scoprire la partenogenesi, ossia la riproduzione senza fecondazione. Il presente testo, in prima edizione, costituisce il suo primo e principale studio di psicologia, ed in esso sviluppa originali spunti anticipando le teorie della psicologia biologica e della neurologia comportamentale. Ispirandosi a Newton sostiene che la conoscenza del comportamento umano e animale deriva dalla comprensione del sistema nervoso, approfondendo in maniera originale i rapporti tra psicologia e fisiologia. E' considerato uno dei padri della moderna biologia. > Barbier, II, 211, "C'est à tort que cet ouvrage a été attribué à Thurneysen". D.S.B., II, 286. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigung ...

      Nürnberg, bey den Röselischen Erben/ J.J. Fleischmann/ zu finden bey dem Verfasser, (1755-1761). 4 volumes. 4to (197 x 165mm). With 1 engraved portrait of Roesel, 3 handcoloured engraved frontispieces and 357 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates (printed on 285 leaves). Contemporary half calf, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lines and 2 gilt lettered labels (and:) KLEEMANN, C.F.C. Beyträge zur Natur- und Insecten-Geschichte. (Nürnberg 1761-1776). 4to (197 x 165mm). With 44 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine in 6 compartments with gilt lines and 2 gilt lettered labels. A rare complete set of the most important and finest entomological German publication of the 18th century. Our copy comprises the rare supplement by Kleemann. The work was published by Roesel and his son-in-law Kleemann, both lived in Bavaria, in Nürnberg, working as artists, and both were ardent students of local natural history./"Roesel, who studied at first with his father and then with his uncle Wilhelm, an animal painter in Merseburg, later became a pupil of the famous Preisler in Nuremberg. After living in Copenhagen from 1726 to 1728 he returned to Nuremberg for good, and there, besides painting portraits and drawings, he applied himself in particular to the study of nature. He collected insects, their eggs and larvae, studied the process of hatching, pupation, and emergence, and painted all this in a most meticulous way, as Kleemann tells us. His manuscripts, with 406 illustrations, are now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. Roesel also made the engravings of his drawings and, until his death in 1757, his 'loving and diligent spouse' contributed fine colouring to the prints" (Nissen. Bestiaries). The handcoloured engraved frontispieces are of a great beauty and the plates, especially of his favourite group, butterflies and moths, usually show a complete life history, with eggs, larva, pupa and perfect insect.//There was no title page published for the first issue of the supplement by Kleemann. However a second issue of the supplement was published in 1792 which does have a printed title as well as 4 more plates. As is mostly the case the set is composed of first and second issues. The first 2 volumes are in the second issue, the remaining volumes in the first.//The text was printed on thin paper and as in all copies, is prone to foxing. Our copy likewise has some occasional slight foxing to the text. The plates being printed on fine thick paper have no foxing and are in mint condition. A nice uniformly bound set.//Junk, Rara p. 159; Nissen ZBI, 3466 & 2201.
